The new LFS 6.5 is released.
Although I never tried it, it’s intriguing me (a lot).
Not just because it’s a geeky thing to do, but because it’s the best way to understand how linux works.
To erase all confusion here,LFS is not a distribution, it’s a guide.
A 314 pages (and counting) book written by Gerard Beekmans.
I tried a number of distributions and could not decide on any one. They were great systems in their own right. It
wasn’t a matter of right and wrong anymore. It had become a matter of personal taste. With all that choice available,
it became apparent that there would not be a single system that would be perfect for me. So I set out to create my
own Linux system that would fully conform to my personal preferences.
To truly make it my own system, I resolved to compile everything from source code instead of using pre-compiled binary packages.
Whenever I have some spare time…
But for now, I’m quite happy with my Ubuntu.
