Looking into LFS


I've been thinking about working with LFS for some time, and was wondering if anyone knows of an easy, quick way to gather all the needed packages.

Look for the LFS live CD somewhere on the LFS website.

-- If not that, just make the list of packages and do 'wget -i list_of_packages'.

The lfs mirrors also supply big tar files like This one. It contains everything you need.
