The reason is twofold. One, if you can't compile a kernel (or worse,
can't install a .deb or .rpm kernel) then you won't get much out of LFS.
2nd, who wants to create a partition, format the partition, mount the
partition, create a dir structure, create an LFS user, create an
environment for the LFS user, download a bunch of packages and patches,
and then BAM! Stopped by the lack of a proper kernel?
Want control, education, and security from your operating system?
