CNT5605 - 2016 Fall

Assignment: Completing the Linux From Scratch 7.10 (LFS 7.10) installation.


Finish building your new Linux From Scratch (LFS) system.

Assignment Details

Please finish chapter 9. I would suggest noting carefully the discussion in subsection about how to avoid using "physical" network naming conventions. Also, please note during your GRUB configuration that you will be booting your new system from partition hd(0,1) (aka /dev/sda1) rather than its current /dev/sdb device.

You can test your new installation with:

% qemu-system-x86_64 -hda lfs.img -boot d -m 2048 -enable-kvm

On a flash drive, please copy your lfs.img file and a tar of the directory containing your tools checkpoint made at the end of Chapter 5, and bring the flash drive to my office hours. (If my office hours are not convenient, please let me know and we can arrange a different time.)

You should be finished with this project by Monday, November 14.
