i want to learn to build from source. Im currently using ArchLinux, and find it brilliant! i only have a low spec machine with a Intel Celeron 1.8Ghz and 512 meg of ram!! i found arch runs brilliant on it though!
I have only bin using unixes for 18months or so and have used PC-BSD, ubuntu, Suse, Zenwalk and a few others, but havent learnt much about source code atall because these all have good package managers.
I would love to build my whole system from source, and had a quick blast at Linux From Scratch(LFS) but very quickly ran into trouble and got very confused, worried, and outa my depth!!
anyone got any idea where i should start to learn?? i can do the basic './configure -> make -> make install -> make clean' but if it comes to anything more complex, then im lost. ive googled but only find the above basic compilation explained.
if anyone has got LFS up and running, can you let me know wot kinda level ur at with linux, and posibly some starter reading for me to get my head round the process? thanks
