3 Days and now Stand-alone LFS.

Posted 10-08-2013 at 11:57 PM by ReaperX7

Yes, I deleted my old LFS install and use SalixOS Live 13.37 disk to install my system from the ground up alongside Windows.

It took some extra work, but it's completed, partially. I still have a few extra packages to add using a chroot entry from SalixLive before I can natively access it correctly, but so far all is well.

I had to completely import Debian's os-prober with a modified installation using the Slackware SlackBuild script as a guide, but it worked and both Windows and Linux are now side-by-side on my hard drive with Grub2's bootloader.

As I stated, I still have a lot left to do before this Linux OS installation is anywhere nearly useful.

X11 looms ahead again as well as Xfce, but those should go by fairly fast for me as last time. I may perform a normal /usr install path for X11 this time to avoid any problems.

My first goal next is to complete Chapter 3 of BLFS again and streamline the console somewhat as well as tweak a file here and there to my liking.

I'm hoping by next weekend, I'll have X11 and Xfce both fully installed and everything in complete working order so I can then focus on the rest of the system tools as needed.

One thing I hope to eventually look into is trimming the kernel down to only my devices. This is a long time off for now as LFS 7.4 will be my stable system for the time being or until an errata package is announced.
