Well, I finally made it! Of course I can't actually do anything with it because there are no apps (they get added in blfs). But it boots, I can log ...

I've checked all the logs and they look sane. I feel very pleased with myself.

I once built LFS too. When the system actually booted and I was able to log in I too was thrilled. It was a lot of work to install that Linux system. Took a lot of time and a lot of reading (repeatedly reading the same docs) but in the end it was a fun project.Glenn

For some reason I am seeing a dark and stormy night, a castle and then a lab. I am hearing "It's ALIIIIVE!"
Speaking as someone who accepts that he'll probably never have the patience to have a serious go at LFS, may I say well done. Are you going to go BLFS?

I've often wondered, is it actually a good learning experience or do you just end up blindly following instructions?

I cheated occasionally. I had to put an "illegal" symbolic link into one of my library directories to get gcc to build correctly the first time. There is a correspondence going on about that currently in the mailing list so I hope I can learn what actually went wrong. And I didn't install GRUB because I don't like it and anyway I don't need it. I have two copies of lilo on this machine (one in Debian for regular use and one in Crux for emergencies), so all I had to do to make lfs bootable was to add a stanza to both lilo.conf files and then run one of them.
I think it's been good fun. In fact it was quite addictive while it was going on.

So like everything else, you get out what you put in. I really wish I had the patience to have a go at it but I know I would go mad waiting for the compiles to complete. That's what happened when I tried Crux and building FreeBSD!
