About /usr partition and package tarball


Hi folks,

I have another round building LFS, now on version 6.1

Re
2.4. Mounting the New Partition
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/.../mounting.html

I don't have a partition for /usr therefore I left out following 2 steps;
mkdir $LFS/usr
mount /dev/[yyy] $LFS/usr

What other steps I must also skip in the subsequent Sections?

I download "fs-packages-6.1.tar" from
ftp://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/

I suppose the tarball consisting all packages and patches listed on

3.2. All Packages
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/.../packages.html

and
3.3. Needed Patches
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...3/patches.html

respectively.

Please advise. TIA

B.R.

Yes, if you have the tarball, you don't need to download all the packages and patches individually.
