Since when can you install a Linux From Scratch system with a package manager?

Hi,

LFS is, by default, not a RPM based 'distro'.

There is a hint available on how to setup RPM on a LFS box: rpm to be used with LFS

It's 'recent': Date Last Updated: 2006-01-27

Hope this helps.

Since forever. You can use whatever package manager you want on LFS. I use Slackware's pkgtools.. A system without a package manager is a pretty haphazard way to go about it IMO...

The original question was:

It looks to me as if he's asking where to find an LFS.rpm, to which the answer would be, nowhere(as far as I know). I guess it's how you read the question. The English is a little muddled.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about using the RPM package manager right after the toolchain instead of "make install"... It wouldn't be linux from scratch if you used one giant pre-compiled distro/binary via RPM.

I "need PKGTOOL package manager vitally to install my lfs system" also but that doesn't mean I use Slackware packages from slackware.com. I compile the sources into tgz binaries and then 'installpkg blah.tgz" instead of "make install".... Pretty sure that's what he's talking about. If so, druna already answered the question.

Besides RPM isn't all that elegant of a package manager IMO... Try something else...
