What is ALFS?
How I see it. LFS is a great book and has a specific purpose and an
identity. What would be nice is to see LFS take the route of walking
the user through a "complete" installation of linux. From creating
their own bootdisk (if needed) and burning a cdrom with the tools
necessary to start compiling their system to setting up X and their
preferred desktop environment.
ALFS on the other hand clearly has another meaning. A stands for
automated? Meaning things are done mostly without their assistence.
Defining an ALFS user, someone who wants to compile all packages
from scratch and setup their system according to a preset profile,
possibly modified here and there.
