linuxfromscratch.org down? moved?


I've been unable to access linuxfromscratch.org for a few days now. Anyone know what's going on? Are they having problems or moving or is the problem on my end? I can ping linuxfromscratch.org, but can't can't do much of anything else.

Thanks,
Clint

I have no idea whats going on, I've had the same problem.

You can use some of the mirrors here:
http://lfs.initworld.com/mirrors.html

but.... if you are trying to build LFS you will find that all the patches(and mailing lists) are hosted on linuxfromscratch.org.

Looks like they haven't gotten their new server to work.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Yes, I am trying to do an install. I'll use one of the mirrors to get everything set up and download the packages, but looks like I'll have to wait till the new server is back up and cooking to go much further.

I just discovered that under the download section of the LFS website there is a link to all the required patches.
So you can probably continue with your build without problems.

good luck
