Dedicated to help you build your own complete GNU/Linux distribution for the Pi.

  • Everything is based on the original Linux From Scratch project with additional tweaks and build recipes for the Pi.
  • We track the stable version of LFS: r12.0
  • We compile everything natively on the Pi itself, no cross-compiling is done.
