I am trying to build a linux-from-scratch for a Cerf-Cube 405EP that I
have lying around so that I can learn how to build a full distribution.
My host environment is a Redhat Fedora Core 4 distribution on a dell
laptop (x86) and my target is the cerfcube 405ep (ppc). As such, I'm
not using the live cd.
I am following the online version of the CLFS book (which rocks) and so
far I have successfully built the cross-tools and temporary tools (so
that would put me at the end of chapter 6).
At this point, I am trying to decide whether to boot or chroot to
complete the installation. In terms of deployment, I was going to setup
some form of netboot and then disk on flash. I figured I could build
the entire distribution first and then setup netboot, etc after.
I am afraid I can't figure out which way to go. I don't think I really
understand the pros and cons of either method.
