Forum Suggestion...


I only suggest this because more and more of us seem to be creating Linux From Scratch systems. I was thinking it's specific enough to warrant a forum of it's own. Just curious as to what you (Jeremy) and the rest of ya'll thought.

i think as nice as it would be, at this time i don't believe it would draw enough to have its own forum and probably many of the questions could be asked in the other forums...
just my opinion on it.. but yet again, once i start mine, it would be nice to have a forum just about LFS. but i think i know who to ask when i have problems or questions just from our thread we were all discussing about it.

For now I would just put these in the Distro forum. If there is enough traffic I would consider making a LFS subforum someday. Maybe I'll come out with a LinuxQuestions distro (THAT would get it's own forum )

Although an LFS forum would be good, I don't know what the exact numbers are to warrent my vote. Saying that, LFS does have its own mail-list, but I don't get on with those at all.

Maybe a LQ distro would be a good idea!

Hi guys

I do think there is enough LFS related messages on the forum allready ( most from me, but thats not the point )

So I have an idea, why dont myself, TAZ, trickybid and Cragstar, have a place to discuss what else needs installing and actualling installing software on top of the base $LFS system, so we can keep all our systems the same and to save time, because if someone,s allready installed it and nows how to, then we can simply use there configure scripts, then maybe one day we will get around to installing an RPM manager and create the LQ distro.

What do you think

we made it to 117 posts in the big LFS thread, with about half a dozen more spread out throughout General and Distro. Offhand what would be the marker for LFS to get its own forum?

Just curious, offhand I think the furvor is dying off, but who knows, DavePhillips and Trickykid are looking at it now...

Cheers,

Finegan

I think the key to needing a new forum at this point is a fairly large number consistent posts on a specific topic.
