I've been looking into it myself. Most seem to suggest it's good for
learning about Linux, but often not great for actual use unless you're
willing to put in a lot of time. That's just what I heard, I've not done
LFS myself.

You can go to http://www.linuxfromscratch.org and read the book -- It's
actually not that long -- and see what you think.

Other alternatives are the newer style source based distros. They're often
said to be "all the advantages of LFS without the drawbacks."

It's a great learning experience, but can e frustrating for everyday use
as without a packageing system installing and uninstalling software is a
PITA

If you want a distro which compiles and optimizes all the software for
*your* system have A look at Source Mage,

1. LFS support for smbfs in 2.5, and other improvements

Hi,

I noticed that LFS support has made it into 2.5, but it's not on the status
list (http://kernelnewbies.org/status/latest.html).

IIRC there were some plans to add oplock support to smbfs (newbie alert:
linux smb client, oplocks are already in samba server).  Maybe that should
be tracked on the status too.
