Bruce Dubbs has announced the release of Linux From Scratch (LFS) 10.1, a book of step-by-step instruction of building a basic Linux system from source code. This release upgrades most packages to their latest versions: “The Linux From Scratch community announces the release of LFS version 10.1. Major changes include toolchain updates to glibc 2.33 and Binutils 2.36.1. In total, 40 packages were updated since the last release. Changes to the text have also been made throughout the book. The Linux kernel has also been updated to version 5.10.17. In coordination with this release, a new version of LFS using the systemd package is also being released. This package implements the newer systemd style of system initialization and control and is consistent with LFS in most packages.” Visit the project’ news page to read the brief release announcement. A separate, Beyond Linux From Scratch book, which includes over 1,000 extra packages, is also available in version 10.1; both books are provided in SysVInit and systemd variants.
