Re: [LUG] Creating a GNU/Linux environment from scratch
Definately use Linux From Scratch.
I finally managed to complete mine a couple months back (and it actually
works!), but haven't got round to doing any more as I've got a new laptop
(must start again almost [rolleyes]).
I think it's actually harder to do than you might first think- the book has
all sorts of things that you would probably spend months or years working
out how to fix. Unfortunately, unless you go out of your way to fix some
broken things (like maybe... the whole of GCC or something (don't ask
me)!?!?!!), internationalisation will not work properly (which could be very
annoying for me- I speak Japanese, Spanish and Russian (to varying
degrees))- whether it can still work in X I don't know yet.
Using LFS also makes it easier for others to help- they have a great IRC
Hope this is of some use
