I'm rebuilding my Linux box after first building it 2.5 years ago (LFS:
SVN-20060531) (I came across some pre-compiled software than needed a
newer glibc). I've been a long time Linux user -- my first install was
in 1992 (Slackware (oh, all of those 3.5" floppies!) kernel 0.99 pl
12orsomething) -- even contributed a bit to the kernel code back then
(the slip driver).
Have used other distros since: Debian, Mandrake, Suse -- but found
LFS/BLFS a couple of years ago and am quite satisfied. Started/finished
my new LFS 6.4 build about a month ago and have since been installing
It's not a "pure" 6.3/SVN BLFS build (i.e. adhering the the package
revisions) -- I've grabbed even newer revisions here and there -- but
using the basic BLFS instructions for install.
The use of my box is for a home server/workstation. Enough of an intro,
now onto my questions:
- VNC looks for /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Xvnc Enterprise Edition E4.4.3 (r16583) - built Oct 14 2008 01:08:32

Installed Xorg 7.4, but the packages didn't create this file -- it's in
my older BLFS file system. Does anyone know which package installs this
- KDE 4.1.3
What a can of worms! ..as with many advanced packages, there's
dependency after dependency. I've "successfully" installed it, but have
gone back a couple of times now to install dependencies for further
functionality and/or to fix issues. Not really a question here, but
this might be better for the blfs-development list, I can share some of
what I have found if anyone is interested (new concepts like cmake).
Happy New Year
