(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

There is really only two changes between installing for any general use and for using as a host operating system to build LFS with, he partition structure and users.

you need sufficient free disk space to be able to build lfs onto as empty partitions.

and the only user you really need for the build is the one you create as a part of the process. of course, root is always needed.

terih kasih atas video nya. from indonesia


not a problem with the delay, stuff happens.

I figured I would check on if it had been published, since I have the time for doing the next one in the series right now.

I've been quite busy myself,whith a full time job and running my own business, so getting time for making a video isn't always easy.

First off Jaqui, apologies for the delay in publication. A few things have fallen between the cracks during showmedo's recent transition. Now you're a trusted author you'll be able to publish yourself. Liked the video - nice and gentle. Your series has got me trying out PCLinux - now I have a second laptop I'm comparing various distros for the fun of it. I like the clean-lines of PCLinux a lot. Could even become a convert. Anyway, thanks for the videos and please keep up the good work.

The ShowMeDo Robot says - this video is now published, thanks for adding to ShowMeDo.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Jaqui
