So I set out to create my own Linux This Linux From Scratch book is the central core around that project. Is a wrapper around groff that facilitates the production of PDF documents from. This book describes the process of creating a Linux system from scratch from have to build my own system from scratch, ideally using only the source code.

I was about to go hard on this because I came across a similar link a few days ago that had absolutely no mention of the excellent existing project on this topic, the LFS project [1]. This page does make multiple mentions of it, but in a very offhanded way. I would encourage the people behind this url to make a case upfront about why someone should use this link as opposed to directly going to LFS, and what do they have that LFS doesn't. Yeah it seems very similar to LFS, including the verbiage on the pages. Wondering if the same people are behind this. I first used LFS to build my own distro back in college and that experience made me learn a lot about the components of the Linux system which is helpful to me even now.

RC1 for the next release was made today.

LFS feels like a dead project. The project presents itself as a "book. It is a book. You can build LFS on any system that meets the requirements[1]. UEFI is also supported by most bootloaders. I think you're confusing LFS with maybe a livecd image they used to put out? LFS is so woefully out of date that it isn't even funny. Dated LFS current stable comes from February The current version rc1 was released today.

It's hardly dead, archaic styling aside. Anyone else remember when books on specific software suites were relevant? The links they give are to upstream.

They should fix that. They also provide md5sums of the tarballs, which get checked automatically in their automated build. They should switch to sha, but there at least exists an integrity check. I agree it's much more an educational project than a production one. But that would be true regardless; any system you're putting together by hand like this shouldn't be one that's going into production anywhere. So sad to see something described as 'archaic styling' just because it's not 'flat design' garbage.

LFS 8. If you want bleeding edge, the development version of the book is updated when upstream source packages are released. Why not? LFS is more than capable of providing secure, general purpose systems -- desktop and server.

I made a bootable LFS twice but it was strangely broken. I guess it depends where you want the knowledge.

From looking over the BLFS now, I haven't had a lot of use-cases for building more userland-ish things. I've tried to avoid compiling X or Display Managers and stick to package managers if I wanted to try a new Desktop Environment. I've found Arch docs or man pages really helpful in configuring these kinds of things when I do need it.

I can see this being more useful if I wanted to be more of a sysadmin.

I remember trying to customize PAM and setup Kerberos years ago and feeling like there wasn't much help putting this all together or troubleshooting it may have been prior to BLFS. When you said "weirdly useless to understand linux" do you mean the linux kernel in the literal sense? Or the low level system stuff of how things are put together? I meant the whole linux system, not the kernel. But the two are entangled.

I have to wonder is LFS maintained? LFS is great no complaints no offense intended I know it must take a lot of work to keep it updated. Then again lower down on the buildyourownownlinux site wget links to a LFS url so it must be the same people or LFS re-branded? You can always check out the latest[1] version in your browser. Build is from Aug 15th at the time of my writing. Seriously though, is this a fork of LFS or what?

Yes, Linux From Scratch has been a product for a very long time. This page does make multiple mentions of it, but in a very offhanded way. I would encourage the people behind this url to make a case upfront about why someone should use this link as opposed to directly going to LFS, and what do they have that LFS doesn't.

I first used LFS to build my own distro back in college and that experience made me learn a lot about the components of the Linux system which is helpful to me even now. I used it again years later to build an extremely lightweight base for docker containers.

Its very versatile and I hope this project helps people as much as LFS helped me. What are the differences? From an organizational structure, I see that buildyourownlinux. From a technical standpoint, I'm curious what differs. Danihan on Aug 16, One works and one isn't maintained. Are you saying LFS isn't maintained?

By compiling the entire system from source code, you are empowered to audit everything and apply all the security patches desired.

It is no longer necessary to wait for somebody else to compile binary packages that fix a security hole. Unless you examine the patch and implement it yourself, you have no guarantee that the new binary package was built correctly and adequately fixes the problem.

The goal of Linux From Scratch is to build a complete and usable foundation-level system. If you do not wish to build your own Linux system from scratch, you may not entirely benefit from the information in this book.

Welcome to Linux From Scratch!

There are too many other good reasons to build your own LFS system to list them all here. In the end, education is by far the most powerful of reasons. As you continue in your LFS experience, you will discover the power that information and knowledge truly bring.
