Linux From Scratch

Linux From Scratch

Linux From Scratch allows users to build custom Linux systems from the ground up, customizing each aspect of the system to the users specifications.


There are many reasons why you would want to read this book. One of the questions many people raise is, “why go through all the hassle of manually building a Linux system from scratch when you can just download and install an existing one?”

One important reason for this project’s existence is to help you learn how a Linux system works from the inside out. Building an LFS system helps demonstrate what makes Linux tick, and how things work together and depend on each other. One of the best things that this learning experience can provide is the ability to customize a Linux system to suit your own unique needs.

Another key benefit of LFS is that it allows you to have more control over the system without relying on someone else’s Linux implementation. With LFS, you are in the driver’s seat and dictate every aspect of the system.
