For what it worths, I could say that I've installed a complete LFS 6.1 and
if it's in a testing version my box works very well.
I'm installing, in this box, a BLFS 6.0 with some pieces of the testing
(that will be 6.1, I suppose) and at the moment all is very good.
Now I'll try the multimedia parts starting from Xorg and KDE 3.4.
If you want I'll keep you updated.
