LFS-7.4 and BLFS-7.4

Posted 09-16-2013 at 09:40 PM by ReaperX7

I've been tinkering with a build of LFS-7.4 and BLFS-7.4 (basically a post-Developer release of the SVN edition I have), and have learned a lot of GNU/Linux as of late.

Currently I'm in the middle of Chapter 24 X-Windows system and just finished building the xorg drivers before I left for work.

I've also gotten partially through Chapter 4 Security, but I want to wait until I get X11 up and running with Xfce and all apps especially Midori Browser, installed through a chroot from my Slackware64-Current install. Once those are compiled and complete, the system will be switched over to Linux From Scratch completely, minus my local Windows Server 2012 Workstation install, and I can stop chrooting in.

It's been a lot of work to get here, but LFS is fun, addictive, and really it's your Linux distribution in the end, even if you follow the book, you downloaded, built, and installed EVERYTHING.
