I got through my first full LFS (v5.0) build just fine, by the book. :D
Now, if there were a way to do it without having to already have some Linux
distribution installed. :D I think I will do it next time with just a very
minimal RedHat setup installed. It would be possible to do it without even
having X installed on a distribution, using Lynx, although having Mozilla
available makes things much nicer.
I saved my toolchain from the LFS preparation steps. Could I just use that
to bootstrap myself and start building the real LFS if I have my /tools/bin
directory in my path? If so, I may be able to get by with a very minimal
RedHat (or any other distribution) setup to get myself started.
Now that I have been through this once, all the way into BLFS, I want to do a
fresh build, hopefully avoiding the mistakes I made this time around. As
long as I don't format the partitions I have inportant stuff on, like my
sources and home partitions, I should be able to save myself quite a bit of
time for the next build.
I tried building a GNOME 2.4 setup, but it didn't work entirely (as I
expected, being a development type thing), but it looks pretty good just the
same. I'll stick with WindowMaker and KDE for my X desktops. :) GNOME 2.4
has me interested in GNOME again though.
