Hi

The live cd is out of date now and not maintained, Can you use your host system?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Which LFS version are you planning to build?

I'm asking because the liveCD cannot be used to build LFS version 7.0 or higher.

If you do want to build LFS 7, what I recommend, install another linux distro first (Debian would be a good choice) and work from there. Do remember to make the chosen distro compliant. Not doing so will result in a failed LFS build.

About your liveCD problem: The last time the liveCD was updated is over 4 years ago. Maybe it doesn't support the modern (virtual)hardware.

Hope this helps.

Cool

Hi,

I built LFS 7.0 on top of Slackware 13.37 (32 bit) inside VirtualBox without any problems:
1. Download the Slackware 13.37 Install DVD.
2. Install Slackware 13.37 (32-bit) (skip X and KDE).
3. Make a new (virtual) harddisk.
4. Follow the LFS book (7.0 works fine, I suspect 7.1 will too) to install it on the second harddisk.
5. If you want to stop, suspend the virtual machine...
6. ...
7. World Domination ;-)

yea 7.0 but my problem the base system without any Configurations The Thing is it doesn't want to install

So I didn't do anything with it just installed it I didn't even read the book So What's Wrong

and Why it's out of Date and Where to get Debian Their Site is so confusing for me So Please Give a direct Link and Where to get the tools Needed in the Book (If I wanted them Separately)

and the last Verses I didn't under stant them what do you mean by "and work from there. Do remember to make the chosen distro compliant. Not doing so will result in a failed LFS build."


and What's the Date they stopped using it so I may go to a book Written on that Date

Hi

Did the cd not boot at all you should boot from the cd (run as a live cd),
Before you start I would read the book at least the 1st few chapters
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/ this is the latest version lfs-7.1.
DO read upto chapter 5 before you start, What OS do you have installed on your machine at the moment?

and What is in the First Few Chapters

Hi

The link I posted http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/ will take you to the online book do have a read of that 1st. LFS is not simple to do and an understanding of linux is a necessity

Hi

I can only vouch for using Ubuntu and a built LFS system, you can use most linux distros
http://www.linuxquestions.org/reviews/index.php/cat/2
http://iso.linuxquestions.org/
you then have to install 1 then your ready to make a start

This is the page where you have to check your host distro once it is installed
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/.../hostreqs.html

Slackware because it works fine as a Host for LFS (I have done that) and it is small and simple to use and to set up.
Skip X and KDE at the Slackware installation because you will not need them if you use Slackware as Host for LFS and installation takes time and diskspace.
Please ignore the sixth and seventh statement, they were a joke.

I don't want to sound discouraging but WHY do you want to install LFS? Have you ever used any other Linux distribution before?


Hope it helps
