Cross-compiling Slackware from scratch


Hi all,

I want to cross-compile a basic console-only version of Slackware. I have the cross-compiler environment working, and I can compile the packages with modified Slackbuild-scripts.

First question ist, what package-series will I need to get a basic system without X working?
I guess I need a, ap, parts from l and parts from n. Is this correct?

My 2nd question is in which order should I do the compiling in order to avoid problems with packages depending on not-yet-compiled packages? Is there another way besides trial-and-error?
Is there a way to figure which packages depend on what?

Thanks in advance,
BR

i think there is a list of them on each cd, however i don't have a cd with me so i can't verify this. Someone please correct me if i'm wrong. The reason being, i remeber there being an install option for following package dependencies

Start with an order more or less like this:
kernel,glibc, binutils,gcc, libtermcap, bash, sed, zlib, ncurses -don't forget you need lots of development tools also like make, etc.

Why not look at LFS or DIY? The build order is the same no matter what 'distro' your using. linux is linux.

yeah, i second the suggestion to look at the LFS book... the order and methods you use to compile a slackware from scratch are very important (as with any distro) and LFS is the perfect guide for your quest...

Hi,

Thank you all for your suggestions. I think I'll try the way proposed in the LFS book.
