OK, I've gone back and looked at the available evidence. On a 1GHz
celeron, scripted, about 12 hours to get to the end of the book.
Similar figures for the amigaone (detuned to gcc-3.3.2), I must have
included all of the BLFS things I normally build in my calculation.
Maybe I should edit my comment:
with a less than state of the art machine and plenty of memory, the
truly obsessive can probably get through the LFS book in a calendar day
if they don't make mistakes. With an excessively recent machine, the
limiting factor is probably your speed of typing.
Is that better ? ;-)
