Question Need LiveCD


So I'm A Newbie And Was Building Linux From Scratch 6.3.
After All Downloads Patches and Packages I Came To A Point Where We Need to Install them and I could not get that done .
So Can Anyone offer me help and give a LiveCD For Linux From Scratch that has done all this or Has Completed all Steps from Chapter 5. I can do the later part but not this ...

Please Please Anyone I Just cant do chapter 5!...

Thanks In Advance!

that would pretty much defy the purpose of LFS, don't you think?

Maybe try a beginner-friendly distro like Mint? (Which is what I personally use and recommend, and I've been an everyday Linux user since 2007.)

I have 20 years in IT and it took me a week to do the lfs project successfully.

Start over, go slowly, read twice, execute once.
Wax on. Wax off.

Hi

Lfs 6.3. That is very old now the latest is 7.6
The problem with live cd is keeping them persistent You would be better to install a linux OS Make it compliant as per book

I would do an install of a linux OS instead of tringing to use a live cd.

There isn't a "LFS live cd"
