Building my first LINUX system right now.... :-)
(under LFS... Under T2 SDE will be next.... )

Fingers crossed I got it all right and the build process gors smoothly until the end...

First aim?
Router/firewalls, to be used here, at work.
One that suits ALL the requirements I have on the "drawing board" (read, sheet of paper... :-) ) but, if all goes right, as expected, it won't stop there.

One essential specification?
It must be modular and have a contained configuration system that allows for the rebuild of the router/firewall without having to install from scratch and, at the same time, have it managed throught a central management system.

I know it sounds somewhat ambitious, but after studing and evaluated almos all the linux base router/firewalls solutions that currently exist (without leaving the GPL universe), I've came to the conclusion that, having a solid binary base (Linux can give me that) the rest will the naturaly follow, with lessons learned from the implementations I've already studied.

But I'll post the progress, as it goes along.

CHROOTed into the newly built system....

And rebuild all over again, to make the final binary system.

Realy, building Linux from Scratch and listening to on of the fuges of Mozart DO MATCH!

Amazing!

I guess that while the LFS is build I migth get the IP COP 1.4.x sources and get a reall look on the code....

To see what I can use and what I have to change (or to re-write it, if it is easier, anyway...)ge

Final glibc built.

I think this is the element that takes the greatest time to compile...
