Linux from Scratch
From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with the steps
necessary to build your own custom Linux system. There are a lot of
reasons why somebody would want to install an LFS system. The question
most people raise is "why go through all the hassle of manually
installing a Linux system from scratch when you can just download an
existing distribution like Debian or Redhat". That is a valid
question which I hope to answer for you.
important reason for LFS's existence is teaching people how a Linux
system works internally. Building an LFS system teaches you about all
that makes Linux tick, how things work together, and depend on each
other. And most importantly, how to customize it to your own taste and
from Scratch Live CD available from us provides a CD that is useful as
an LFS build host or as a general rescue CD.
Please note: The LiveCD is no longer being maintained by the developer. However, it still works well for many purposes, including as a vehicle to build LFS. The packages and the rendered LFS book on the CD are quite out of date. To use the CD to build LFS, download the current book and all packages from one of the mirrors. More details can be found at the Linux from Scratch website.
