About /usr partition and package tarball

Hi folks,

I have another round building LFS, now on version 6.1

2.4. Mounting the New Partition

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

I suppose the tarball consisting all packages and patches listed on

3.2. All Packages

3.3. Needed Patches


Please advise. TIA

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