    Hi Bro,
    At last I finished the chapter 5 and now I am doing the chapter 6 of LFS. Why there is no separate sub-section for LFS here like they have in linuxquestions.org? In my opinion, LFS is a worthy topic to have a separate sub-section and the beginners like me will benefit from it. It is just a thought, no offense meant.

    glad to hear that. Just today I got few replies for the same question
    Re:How to create a new root file system? - Linux Forums

    Seems like busybox will help to install more easily,but clearly with LFS you will learn a lot.

    Even I hope to catch up with you,in LFS. I'm looking for holidays to work on LFS ..
    As I mention in other thread , LFS will help to build your own distro and appliances..that will be real fun and challenging task

    Yes,I think that's a good suggestion,If more people started posting question about LFS..then we should have separate section for LFS too.

    All the best

    Hi Bro,
    Finally I completed LFS and booted into the new system ! I thank you for all the help you provieded. But the story does not end here. Earlier I was not aware of the actual size of the Linux system which was expected from me. Now I came to know that for embedded systems, we need about 16 to 20 MB system. Do you have any suggested readings?

    Hey Congrats !! That's really a great achievement for your hard work and persistence
    I hope In future,I can get your help in while I create my LFS

    What's your current disk size?How much your LFS occupies now?

    below link might help you,they mention's its embedded,but i'm not sure:

    My kernel size is 3.4 MB and the size of the total LFS filesystem is about 600 MB.
    I have enough free space in the computer(about 60 GB). But I have to develop a system whose total size should be about 16 MB and not 600 MB

    The following thread helped me a lot in the last stages of doing LFS :
    LFS- Adjusting the Toolchain problem - LinuxQuestions.org

    Now it seems that this thread will die out because the goal of booting a custom kernel in a new root file system has been achieved thanks to you.
    But you can always talk to me here : wansu2004@gmail.com
    What is your id?

    Now I am working to make the Linux system small and I know that I will face problems there also. Soon I will come up with a new thread in this forums.
