This is the change log for LFScript 4.

2012, January 31st (revision 20)

  • Interactive configuration (LFClass)
    • Now properly configures the system after selecting an .xinitrc implementation.
    • No longer configures a display manager. It is assumed you install only one at most.
  • LFScript
    • Now prints the phrase "*** BUILD_PROBLEM_DETECTED ***" to the log, if a script fails somehow. This allows you to quickly find where errors occur, by searching for that phrase in any text editor.
    • Disabled the mkdir() wrapper (at least temporarily). I suspect this will speed up creation of directories.
    • No longer skipping base system packages if they are set through -s. If you want to disable the build of a base system package (like Vim), you should do that by editing buildbase.lfs.
  • Scripts
    • dhcpcd: Removed configuration of the eth0 network device. NetworkManager should automatically configure devices from now on.
    • libcanberra: Modified to link against Mate.
    • firefox: Added to the stable scripts.
    • postlfs: Removed the compressdoc command from post-installation. If you want to compress man pages, you can still run this command yourself.
    • udev-rebuild: Upgraded to use the same version as in LFS.
    • fsos-nox: Removed kernel configuration check for VESA VGA graphics.
    • livekernel: Removed this script (at least temporarily), because UnionFS does not provide a patch for a current kernel.
    • compiz: Now also builds gtk-window-decorator.
    • mate: Fixed "Unable to open computer://" (or "trash://") issues by adding gvfs as a dependency.
    • Added scripts for NetworkManager and wpa-supplicant.
  • extend.conf: Added a function which converts a package that uses Gnome to Mate.
