blfs-support -- BLFS Support List


About blfs-support
English (USA)

The blfs-support list for the BLFS Book and beyond.

It includes requests for help following the BLFS Book, requests for help with packages not (yet) in either the LFS Book or the BLFS Book, and other requests and discussion concerning software that might be installed on an LFS system.

It does not include topics such as the price of beer, what hardware to buy, or GNU versus BSD or Microsoft versus Linux flamewars. These belong on lfs-chat, and since blfs-support is high traffic, please follow this rule strictly.

When replying to messages, please do not top post.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the blfs-support Archives.
