Linux Project – Day 3
With the project going to third day, what we did is pretty much from Chapter 2 in the LFS book.
In virtualized environment, this is far more easier. Run the VirtualBox Manager and add another virtual harddisk to it before we booted up the Fedora 13 / any other host that you prefer.
Added another new disk under the SATA Controller with 5GB of size, calling it LFS.vdi. Boot up the VM and configure our partition for the build.
Create partition as usual, I use the whole 5GB space for the LFS, without any swap or different partition. Once partition is done, format it with new file system. I used ext3
When view with the Disk Utility provided by Fedora itself, the whole 5.4GB has been utilized as a single partition with ext3 file system. This will be the LFS build environment.
After the partition and file system setup, we need to mount it to be useable.
mkdir -pv $LFS
mount -v -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 $LFS
