In the last few weeks, the LFS editors have been working on a major
overhaul of LFS. This work can be reviewed at
The elements of building LFS using cross compiling techniques have
changed a lot. The old Chapter 5 has been split into three chapters
that have a different focus for each chapter.
Some of the advantages include not requiring a /tools symlink on the
host system and not requiring a lot of hackish symlinks when starting
the final build system.
In addition, a lot of work was done to minimize the number of test
failures in the different packages.
Finally, every page in the new book was reviewed and textual updates
made to clarify different elements of the LFS process.
We welcome comments and criticisms large and small.
