Hello Rainer,

Would you mind to explain the following comands, that you use to build
qcad?:

Thanks

New box build

Well, after playing around with grep and cut, I managed to extract the ftp and 
http lines from tne blfs book in a format that wget seems to like. Since I've 
got use of a Broadband connections ATM, I'm fetching it to burn to CD's plus 
some stuff I'm interested in that's not in BLFS.

Next week I'm in Waterford and don't know if I'll have a connection, but I 
should have the time to build Chris' LFS-6.0-TP and and what I want from BLFS 
et-al. I've also got several recent Linux Format DVD's for extra sources, 
including X.org and XFree86, which I know don't have ftp or http lines in the 
book.

The only thing I'm missing ATM is the latest POV-Ray. The new sources aren't 
posted yet, so I'll hold off until they are. Otherwise, I've a few more 
packages to chase up for DVD burning. Just found Q-DVD-Author which seems to 
be a good start for a Linux GUI DVD making tool. It biulds on the mjpeg-tools 
and dvdauthor plus QT and a few other tools for a nice point-N-click tool.

So, hopefully, by next week I'll have my new box running with most of the 
tools I want and can resign this one to emergency back-up again.

Just remembered, I need to lookup the tools needed for my NCD Explora Thin X 
Client.

Cheers,

	John Gay

stable LFS with linux2.6

Hello
I m thinking about building a LFS system based on 5.1.1 book, but with
kernel 2.6 et glibc built against it. By the way, using gcc-3.3.4 would be
great. (and nptl too but I don't know if it is possible with glibc2.3.3.)

The way I think about is : 
follow chapter 5 of cvs book
switching back to chapter 6 of stable book, but using gcc-3.3.4,
glibc-2.3.3 et linux-2.6.7

Has someone already tried that ? Or do you know a reason for which this
couldn't be done ?

Thanks for any advice!

Axel

Sounds like you want all the benefits of the unstable book without
running "unstable" packages. It cant be done.

Even at least building glibc against linux-2.6 ?

Correct - it means using bleeding edge headers.

NFSROOT, LVM2, et al...

Well its safe to say that my NFS root experiment has been a total success...

I now have a Duron 1800XP+ (266FSB) with 1GB RAM and (tomorrow anyhow) 240GB of harddisc.
LFS unstable.

the drive is split into 4 partitions - root, swap, spare, and the remaining 100GB or so managed by LVM2 and
I've tried (successfully) to resize the volume using five test partitions. the next drive goes in
tomorrow (hopefully) and will be added to the LVM2 volume.

Having installed the OS, and tested LVM2, I flattened the test volumes and created the real volumes, with
ext3, and copied my machines FS onto it.

next came NFS (tcpwrappers, portmap, and nfs-utils) on the server.

the ext3 volume has a root filesystem in a subdirectory on it, which is exported with the async and
no_root_squash properties.

the client mounts this, and boots, the minor modifications to the bootscripts being:

a) load portmap early on  (needed for nfs locking)
b) dont remount root rw, remount it rw,lock (to enable nfs locking).
c) dont take down the network interfaces on shutdown (like, duh...)

altered /etc/fstab to reflect the real root fs and remove swap (I dont fancy swap over NFS and I have plenty of
RAM (256MB on the client))

I honestly couldnt tell it was running on NFS speed wise with the exception of the very first couple of
scripts (pulling in a lot of pages) and loading mozilla (about 2 seconds slower).

Compiling a kernel was a mere 3 seconds slower than when I was using a local disc (55MB/sec seagate barracuda

Having said that...

I set up a second NFS share and found that mounting it took forever unless I mounted without locking (which is instant).

anyone have any idea why lokcing works for one mount but not the other? is more than just portmap required on
the client box?

You have the lockd running on the client too, right?

I will be doing the same sort of thing in the next month for a cluster 
of servers at a colo facility; one monster storage server and the rest 
diskless, using NFS for root and anything else they need.
