Philippe,<br><br>In addition to the option of remastering Grml with the tools you need, it can also be used as a "persistent" live system, with the modifications to the live filesystem saved to a partition or snapshot file, e.g. on a usb drive. This is what I would probably do to save my work over a days-long project such as building LFS; in fact, I have used Grml persistent systems for weeks or months.<br><br>Hope this helps.<br><br><span style="font-family:Prelude, Verdana, san-serif;"><br><br></span><span id="signature"><div id="no_signature" style="overflow:hidden;"></div></span><span style="color:navy; font-family:Prelude, Verdana, san-serif; "><hr align="left" style="width:75%">On Dec 29, 2011 12:13 PM, Philippe Delavalade <email@example.com> wrote: <br><br>Le jeudi 29 décembre à 14:21, Ulrich Dangel a écrit :

<br>Yes but sources can be download with any system (not necessarly a linux
<br>one) ; the most important is that the lfs build is long and often people
<br>stop and restart later ; so, they'll have to update each time the missang
<br>packages. And, one time, I have built on a computer with no network but it
<br>was a long time ago and the lfs livecd was uptodate ; now, there's nomore
<br>specific lfs livecd...
