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 development version of LFS: SVN-20150426
  • We compile everything natively on the Pi itself or with QEMU emulation, no cross-compiling is done.

What's New?

Feb 14 2015

A Raspberry Pi 2 optimized image is now available for download!

The only difference in building LFS for Pi 2 is an alternative GCC patch and a small patch for GMP.
The build scripts already do the right thing by looking at the LFS_TGT variable which is armv7l-lfs-linux-gnueabihf instead of armv6l.

Complete compile time on the RPi 2 is around 12 hours.
Happy building!
