The Linux From Scratch team, editors of the book describing the ultimate way to use linux, have released version 6.1. This version contains instructions of building a base system with the 188.8.131.52 linux kernel, gcc 3.4.3, udev-056, and more. Well hop to it! The sooner you get started with LFS the sooner you can get your BLFS done, and enjoy your new system. If you need help you can chat with the friendly folks in #lfs-support on irc.linuxfromscratch.org. Have fun, and remember to FBBG!
