quick intro


Hey,

I've done a stage 1 Gentoo install without too much difficulty, is installing LFS basically that but without portage to help? I've been using Gentoo for a bit and I like how it's very basic but I do not like portage at all, much prefer to have more control over what I install, what versions I install etc. So yeah, whats the difference between LFS and a stage 1 Gentoo install?

AFAIK even on Gentoo, you are not constrained to using the portage system?! LFS could be very hard-core to someone who is used to emerge scripts. Most people regard LFS as a learning tool rather than a production-environment distro.

Read the manual which explains it quite well but any experiences would still be nice

No you're not stuck using portage, but I'd just rather start clean and since I have no intentions of using it, why have it? If LSF isn't really a production distro, what about DSL? Does that sound more like it would suit me?
