 Linux From Scratch


Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own custom Linux system, entirely from source code.

Currently, the Linux From Scratch organization consists of the following subprojects:

  • Linux From Scratch is the main book, the base from which all other projects are derived.
  • The Hints project is a collection of documents that explain how to enhance your LFS system in ways that are not included in the LFS or BLFS books.
  • The LiveCD project provides a CD that is useful as an LFS build host or as a general rescue CD.

Updated packages in this release include: Linux kernel 3.2.6, GCC 4.6.2, udev 181, e2fsprogs 1.42, zlib 1.2.6, Binutils 2.22, Coreutils 8.15 and Automake 1.11.3.

Readers interested in following the book and building their own custom Linux distro can do so by viewing the latest version online or they can download the entire 345-page book in PDF format or in HTML format.

The updated Linux From Scratch (LFS) stable release version 7.0 includes numerous changes to LFS 6.8, including updates to Linux kernel 3.0.4, GCC 4.6.1 and glibc 2.14.1.

A somewhat major change was made in this version of the book by adding a new top level directory, /run. This directory has a tmpfs mounted and is used by programs like udev to store run time information. The directories /var/run and /var/lock are also linked to this directory. The boot scripts have been updated to accommodate this change.

The boot scripts have also been modified to place supporting scripts in /lib/boot.

Another significant change is the addition of an md5sums file, allowing users to check the integrity of all downloaded packages.

@maxmir - This tutorial is a reference for everyone who is interested to learn more about Linux. If you are not interested in this kind of documentation, you can read some other tutorials posted on this community website.

I can't see how this fits in the scope of the tutorials. If I want to read about Mint I'll come here. If I want to read about the hundreds or thousands of other ways of putting Linux on my PC I'll go elsewhere, e.g. DistroWatch.com .

Whilst LFS is a worthy project and a useful learning tool, I don't see why this needs to be posted here as it's not directly relevant to mint.
