Got the first gunea pig^D^D^D^D^D volunteer for sharing the lfs tarball,
thanks to Rui Ferreira. His upload bandwidth is limited so I still
encourage people to do the above. There are no known security risks with
using the eDonkey 2000 network, in fact it seems to be a safer, more
reliable method of retrieving packages. Not to mention the savings in
http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/packages.html has more info and
links to clients. Use mldonkey for the console (24x7, yeah) or xMule for
XFree86. Both are fairly straight-forward to compile, allthough they
require less used packages (ocaml and wxWindows).
For completeness, here's the link:
The last part is the MD5sum so you can verify you've got the right
tarball. I'll offer it for download myself too but my bandwidth is limited.
