I am trying to get back to normal working speed, still without success.
Have not yet started LFS-7.8-rc1.

I like not tagging the packages I usually update, because I may be
reproducing the same mistake. Therefore, if somebody could tag lxqt and
gnome, I really appreciate.

About gnome, first i started thinking in updating to 3.18.0 for 7.8, but
it depends on many other packages and could fail to build, without the
new gtk.3,gdk-pixbuf, and many others that need to be updated but are
not security nor at the end of the chain.
