Possibly the most novice Linux users do not know what Linux From Scratch is, however the most expert not only know it but also value it positively. Surely many of you would like to create a custom distribution, others would surely like to know how a Gnu / Linux distribution works, well, Linux From Scratch is the solution to these uncertainties.
Thus, Linux From Scratch 7.10 is the latest stable version of this unique project which updates many packages so Linux From Scratch users have up-to-date software.

In this link we can get the files needed to create our distribution from Linux From Scratch 7.10 and we can also get the "recipe book" or rather the step-by-step guide for its creation. This guide has two formats, one in which we use the Systemd startup manager and another in which the System V startup manager is used, for those who know a little more about Linux and want to choose.
Linux From Scratch 7.10 updates the main compilation tools it has
Among the major packages in the update are glibc-2.24, binutils-2.27, and gcc-6.2.0. Packages that are compilation tools, the main function in this peculiar distribution, as you can deduce.
Linux From Scratch is a great distribution that It is aimed at expert users and users who want to learn how a distribution works, a project that many criticized for its difficulty and its specialization but that little by little has established itself as a large Linux distribution, although not as popular as Ubuntu or Fedora. In any case, this new version makes the project go ahead as a stable and safe option to free up our computers. Do not you think?
