Knoppix is good


Had success with Knoppix - since it has gcc, make and all that. Running a live CD, version 4.0.2 i think (it's in my CD reader now, can't look!) My notebook has a running LFS (not counting iatrogenic problems induced from later experimenting)

Only problems i encountered with using Knoppix were 1) couldn't edit the /etc/group (or something related), which had a simple workaround and 2) i couldn't get far making a LFS with 2.6.x kernel when i was running a 2.4.x-based live knoppix. That was a show-stopper, but both problem went away with the newer 4.0.2 (?) live CD.

Also tried ubuntu, which is one of the few distros able to find my sound card, but it lacked make/gcc/other vital tools.

Good idea midiox. I have finished my LFS - and it works good, onto BLFS next!

Aha, stable BLFS seems old. Will I be able to compile newer versions of packages with instructions of the stable BLFS? (Minus the patches of course ).

Or should I use (potentially) unstable BLFS??

I was ok with compiling older (yet more stable) applications for LFS, but for BLFS...

spursrule, how did you do it?

When is the next LFS/BLFS going to come out?

And what annoys me more, is the fact that I just finished LFS, and the new ones comes out straight after.

I know how you feel. I've already got quite a bit of what I want in BLFS installed, but that's ok. I've just started working on installing CLFS-x86_64 on my other computer sitting next to it. Hopefully things will work out on that one, I'm DEFINITELY not getting the most out of it right now running a 32-bit OS.
