  • The build environment

    Devil-Linux needs a special build environment, so that you don't run into problems and don't mess up your current system. We use a "Linux From Scratch" System (here called LFS ) to do this. Goto ftp://ftp.devil-linux.org/pub/devel/sources/ and download the file that starts with lfssystem from the directory which matches the DL version you want to build. Unpack the lfssystem file in a directory, such as /usr/src or any other directory you prefer.
