In which case it's probably time to define (this time *definately*)
what needs doing before BLFS-1.0: (you might want to read this with
tabstops set at 4!)
--> I need to read the whole book thoroughly and do my editor type bit
(If changes are trivial, I'll just commit them but if there's a
common theme running through or a major consistancy issue at stake,
I'll email blfs-dev with the patch for comments).
Also in this bit are the changes to the package introductions,
I'll start a new thread on this soon.
I also have a list of notes I made during my recent desktop
upgrade about things which need fixing in BLFS.
--> The following sections are still empty: (PART: Page)
Introduction: Asking for help and the FAQ
Going Beyond BLFS
Post-LFS: /etc/profile and ~/.bash_*
Man page issues (i'll base this on the man-hint)
Recompiling vim post-X (I'm thinking of removing this)
Connect: ISDN - We may have to drop this if no-one on the
list has use of ISDN to write the page (I don't)
PPPoE - Likewise
ServerNet: courier - I think we may remove this
Content: apache + php; Jesse is working on these
KDE: kdoc, kde-bindings, kde-sdk, kdevelop, kdm
Xsoft: gnucash, magicpoint and gimp
Multimedia: avifile, mplayer, xine
PST: Most of it ;-)
--> Things which don't have specific pages but which I think need
Introduction: BLFS use of /opt(*)
Post-LFS: note on installing Linux_PAM headers only
(for those who want to install OO but don't need PAM)
PST: OK, we have two choices with this section: we either
drop it entirely or pad it out slightly; I suggest
just adding cups, ghostscript, sane and xsane which
I have notes on here (I think Billy was working on
--> Update all packages to the newest version (unless there are reasons
Gpm - Downgrade to 1.19.6 because 1.20.0 seems to be incredibally
buggy here - do other people see this as well?
(*) This is a technical discussion as well. I'll open it up on another
OK, there's more there than I thought there was going to be. Still, in
comparison to the size of the book we're nearly there.
