}So I've been checking out LFS and really enjoying the speed improvement I
}get when doing things such as extracting pkgsrc.tar.gz (an order of
}magnitude speed increase). I managed to make an install where /usr would be
}mounted as an LFS filesystem but when I rebooted ... woops ... lfs_cleanerd
}needs to run to mount /usr and its in /usr/libexec. Is there any particular
}reason I am missing that it is in /usr? Even better, would this
}functionality ever be moved into kernel space? Moving it out of /usr would
}allow one to make /usr LFS but I think as long as it is a separate program I
}can't have an LFS root partition (please correct me if I am wrong about
}this). What are peoples thoughts about this? I know it's not 100% stable
}yet. I'm currently testing it on a couple partitions where it doesn't
}really matter if they get blown away (/usr/pkgsrc /usr/src) and its going
}great so far (1.5.1).
I'm using lfs on /usr on 1.5.1. While the install was problematic, I don't
see any problems because of lfs_cleanerd being in /usr once I finished the
install. I just rebooted the machine to check, and I saw nothing unusual.
My /usr fstab entry is "/dev/sd0e /usr lfs rw 0 0".
