   	<h2>Packages</h2>
   		<p>LFS has a list of packages which you should download. Please use the versions which are <a href="../faq/#why-not-version" title="read this if you don't intend to follow our advice">listed in the book</a>; these are tested versions which are known to work with each other. In addition to the packages you will need to download some <a href="../patches/lfs/">patches</a>. There are several ways to download the packages.</p>
   	<h3 id="freshmeat">Freshmeat</h3>
  -		<p>The first is to hunt down all the packages in <a href="view/stable/chapter04/packages.html">the book</a>. This is a laborious click-and-point process, not always succesfull since older versions of packages may become less available. In that case the <a href="http://lfs.sourceforge.net/wiki/UpdatedVersions" title="Updated Versions">LFS wiki</a> may have an answer. If it hasn't, try to <a href="http://www.google.com/">google</a> for the package (for example, <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=bash-2.05a.tar.gz">bash-2.05a.tar.gz</a>). You can also use the sources from your Linux distribution. <a href="http://www.debian.org/">Debian</a> has an excellent <a href="http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages">search page</a> from which you can download the original sources of packages. This method is probably only useful if you really must have all the latest versions (and in that case, check out the <a href="../faq/#why-not-version">FAQ</a>).</p>

   		<p>The second is a <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html" title="GNU wget webpage">wget</a> script. We provide <a href="wget/">multiple wget scripts</a>, one for each release. Please beware that the <a href="wget/lfs-cvs.wget">CVS wget script</a> is often out of date. Send your updated version to the <a href="http://linuxfromscratch.org/mailman/listinfo/website"> the website mailinglist</a>. To use a wget script, enter <code>wget -i lfs-stable.wget</code>.</p>
