11 <title>After LFS Configuration Issues</title>
13 <para>
14 The intention of LFS is to provide a basic system which you can
15 build upon. There are several things about tidying up the system which
16 many people wonder about once they have done the base install.
17 We hope to cover these issues in this chapter.

21 Most people coming from non-Unix like backgrounds to Linux find the
22 concept of text-only configuration files slightly strange. In Linux, just
23 about all configuration is done via the manipulation of text files. The
24 majority of these files can be found in the <filename
25 class='directory'>/etc</filename> hierarchy. There are often graphical
26 configuration programs available for different subsystems but most
27 are simply pretty front ends to the process of editing a text file. The
28 advantage of text-only configuration is that you can edit parameters using
29 your favorite text editor, whether that be <command>vim</command>,
30 <command>emacs</command>, or any other editor.

34 The first task is making a recovery boot device in <xref
35 linkend="postlfs-config-bootdisk"/> because it's the most critical need.
36 Hardware issues relevant to firmware and other devices is addressed next.
37 The system is then configured to ease addition of new users, because this
38 can affect the choices you make in the two subsequent
39 topics&mdash;<xref linkend="postlfs-config-profile"/> and
40 <xref linkend="postlfs-config-vimrc"/>.
41 </para>
43 <para revision="sysv">
44 The remaining topics, <xref linkend="postlfs-config-logon"/> and
45 <xref linkend="postlfs-config-random"/> are then addressed, in that order.
46 They don't have much interaction with the other topics in this chapter.

49 <para revision="systemd">
50 There is one remaining topic: <xref linkend="postlfs-config-logon"/>.
51 It doesn't have much interaction with the other topics in this chapter.
