From LFScript
Revision as of 19:04, 30 January 2012 by Marcel (talk | contribs)

Welcome to!

As you can see, I've moved the home page to a new Wiki. This will allow me to keep both this site and the documentation for LFScript better up to date. In addition to this, I'm also making some changes behind the scenes of

During this transition, not everything may work perfectly, and I apologise for this in advance.

Getting started

If you are new to LFScript you should start by reading the Quick Start guide. You could also read some of the other Documentation.

If you run into trouble you could Ask a Question, and if you have found a bug you should report it.


This being a Wiki, if you want to, you can contribute to it easily. All I ask (for now) is that you create an account before you edit or create anything. If you create a page, please link to it in on the Documentation page.

Revision 19 (January 23rd, 2012) [UNSTABLE]

This is the latest revision (and includes scripts for the most recent versions of LFS and BLFS, Mate (the Gnome fork) and Compiz Fusion) but it is marked unstable because not all scripts have been tested and some scripts from older revisions are still missing. If you want to build Gnome or KDE, use the STABLE revision in stead.

This is the latest revision and therefore can also be obtained through the following command:


Revision 12 (June 19th, 2011) [STABLE]

In this revision, it has been reported that the archive for pixman is producing MD5 checksum errors. If you experience this problem, you can get the proper archive for pixman here.

Get the Live CD

The "From Script" OS

The "From Script" Operating System (or fsOS for short) is developed together with LFScript and is an example of the LFS/BLFS system you can build with LFScript.

To use LFScript, your current operating system (the "host system") must meet certain requirements (as described in LFS). If you use this Live CD as your host system, you do not need to worry about these.

Additionally, using a Live CD as a host system (preferably on a virtual machine) protects the OS you use every day and allows you to experiment freely.

Download (version 4r16)

This ISO image contains both a 32-bit and a 64-bit system, and can be used to run LFScript for i486, i586, i686 and x86_64 targets (provided that the host machine CPU is capable).
