Nice name :-)
I just happened to finally get around to nALFS yesterday. It's great, a
complete LFS, by the book in 3h23m. Well, almost by the book...my glibc
tarballs and patches, no gcc-2.95.3, no sysklogd, couple of custom
patches and 7 additional small packages. Of course I've not tested it
just yet, but the build looks good from chroot. Seems a little fast
tho, does that time sound correct? Counter might have reset on me or
something. First run was trial and error, but started it from scratch
this morning and was finished when I returned home this afternoon.
Anyways, I also happen to be working on the same type of
profiles..limited to my own needs of course, and in two parts, LFS and
PostLFS. I've not dug in deep enough yet to find where, and in what
tags, to put the download locations for automatic download if the file
does not exist. Guess I need to read a little more. But I'd be happy
to share what I have this weekend. With a pointer on the correct way to
do auto download, I imagine I could have a large portion, current
through gnome done and tested (complete rebuild) probably by Saturday.
I guess url probably goes into packages.ent and dl goes into the
individual package xml file, or does unpack take care of it?
