Pros: Straitforward And detailed instruction.
Cons: Keeping track of the dependencies without package management.


This is an excellent learning tool, I have used several linux distributions over the years but

felt I just wanted to learn more about the works. I found that building a basic LFS system was

straightforward with clear detailed instructions.

You just need plenty of time for this mainly because there is no package management, but this

is a better way to learn and you can see what the various dependencies do.

My thanks to Gerard Beekmans and the team for producing this.
