I downloaded the iso and booted it in a qemu virtual machine. So far it
works well. I noticed that most of the package versions are the minimum
as specified in Host System Requirements. That's good.
The exceptions I saw:
Grep-2.5.1a 2.5.1 (not sure if that is really 2.5.1a or not)
I don't think these are a problem.
I was able to start sshd and log into the system remotely, but only
after I created a new user. We might want to create a default lfsuser
with a lfsuser password. There is also no root password. I don't know
if that's an issue for initial setup or not.
I'm also thinking about creating an lfs-73-qemu.img file for users to
use directly with qemu without going through a live cd boot. That would
allow a faster start when using qemu and easy replication.
