Linux From Scratch

Linux From Scratch

Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides step-by-step instructions for building a custom Linux operating system from scratch. It is intended for experienced Linux users and system administrators who want to create a custom Linux distribution tailored to their specific needs and requirements.

The LFS project provides a detailed guide that covers the process of building a basic Linux system, including instructions for installing and configuring the Linux kernel, system libraries, and user-space applications. The guide is organized into chapters and includes detailed instructions for each step of the process, along with explanations of the underlying concepts. The goal of the project is to provide a solid understanding of how a Linux system is put together, and how the various components work together.

It is important to note that Linux From Scratch is not a distribution and it does not provide pre-compiled binary packages, it is a set of instructions and guidelines to build your own Linux distribution.
