Source Install ?'s
Well, its a bit odd that when I come to post a "specific" question concerning installs a new sub forum has been created. Thanks LQ.org!
Anyway, first of all, this may be lack of knowleadge, or moving onto unquestioned areas, but, I've noticed that the Slackbuild scripts work so much better than the packages. It seems to have Perfect setups after a few tweakings inside the actual .build script.
1) Do the scripts that are provided, make for better, closer to perfect installs? And why do they work so much better than the install directions on most packages? It seems that XFree86 is now running Xft and Freetype2 properly after using the "tweaked" build script. I followed LFS XFree86 install instructions before, but never got Xft to work.
2) I dont have the source cd iso, so I was wondering if I were to obtain the cd, could I replace cd1 with that cd during the initial install and build Slack from the source cd?
