"Stable" means different things depending on context. AFAIK, there is
no book (and hasn't been one) that purports to be both stable and build
a stable system.
The last book that I am aware of which reliably builds an HLFS distro
which runs reliably (stable for me, in other words), and which is built
on a 2.6 series kernel, is SVN-20060510. Courtesy of Manuel Canales
Esparcia, you can download this book via svn with
svn co -r649 svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/HLFS/trunk/BOOK
The patches and sources for this book are mostly findable by jhalfs;
there are a few that you'll have to hunt for with google.
Caveats: I haven't built any of the HLFS books under development in the
"stable" branch, because I want a 2.6 series kernel. These might be
better, depending on your needs. Also, there might well be a later
version of HLFS in the development branch that means an informal
definition of "stable"; I haven't been building them because I infer
from posts to this list that they still don't build reliably (which is
not a criticism; this is explicitly a development book after all).
