3<title>After LFS Configuration Issues</title>
4
5<para>The intention of LFS is to provide a basic system which you can
6build upon. There are several things, about tidying up the system,
7which many people wonder about once they have done the base install.
8We hope to cover these issues in this chapter.</para>

10<para>Most people coming from a Windows background to Linux find the
11concept of text-only configuration files slightly strange. In Linux,
12just about all configuration is done via text files. The majority of
13these files can be found in the <filename>/etc</filename> hierarchy.
14There are often graphical configuration programs available for different
15subsystems but most are simply pretty frontends to the process
16of editing the file. The advantage of text-only configuration is that
17you can edit parameters using your favorite text editor, whether that
18be vim, emacs or anything else.</para>
19
20<para>The first task is making a recovery diskette because it's the most
21critical need. Then the system is configured to ease addition of
22new users, in "Configuring for Adding Users", because this
23can affect the choices you make in the three subsequent topics -
24"/etc/inputrc", "The Bash Shell Startup Files" and
25"/etc/vimrc, ~/.vimrc".
26</para>
27
28<para> The remaining topics, "/etc/issue (Customizing your logon)",
29"Random number generation", "Man page issues" and "Info page issues" are
30then addressed, in that order. They don't have much interaction with the
31other topics in this chapter.
