After having successfully installed the LFS system and a few other programs like sshd, apache, php, etc... i reallize the end result is nothing but a mess that somehow magically works!
Files all over... unmanaged, unassociated...
Something like an RPM or DEB package management system... (from scratch of course)
It would ease upgrading - Especially when new versions make files that were installed previously obsolete..
It would allow easier uninstall - So you dont have to track down every single file... Binaries, Libraries, etc...
Installing apps from sources would be a little more complicated but the whole system would be alot more organized!
We could use one of the existing package managment systems (dpkg, rpm - rpm.org) and make a link so 'lfs' points to one of them... Making it an LFS package system. ;-) Or we could totally program our own package management system.. good luck! I would be willing to help with such an effort as I have moderate C/C++ skills.
What do you think?
