LFS 8.2 Done

Posted 09-04-2018 at 10:10 AM by rsmereka

On the weekend of Aug 24, 1018, I completed my first LFS system. It is based on version 8.2, i386, no systemd, no separate boot partition, BIOS boot on an old Asus GX73JW-XT1 (ROG) laptop. Only the wired network driver is compiled into the kernel. To the base system, I added the BLFS packages wget, make-ca, pciutils and fcron. I was going to build the system up from there but the very next week, LFS 8.3 came out so I imaged the disk using Clonezilla and started from scratch once again

    Sorry, I did not see your comment until now,

    Thanks for the congrats.

    It was such a thrill having my first LFS system boot properly.
