    1818    This book is mainly aimed at those who have built a system based
    1919    on the LFS book. It will also be useful for those who are using other
    20     distributions, but for one reason or another want to manually build
    21     software and are in need of some assistance. Note that the material
    22     contained in this book, in particular the dependency listings, is based
    23     upon the assumption that you are using a base LFS system with every
     20    distributions, and for one reason or another want to manually build
     21    software and need some assistance. Note that the material
     22    in this book, in particular the dependency listings,
     23    assumes that you are using a basic LFS system with every
    2424    package listed in the LFS book already installed and configured. BLFS can
    2525    be used to create a range of diverse systems and so the target audience is
    26     probably nearly as wide as that of the LFS book.  If you found LFS useful,
     26    probably as wide as that of the LFS book.  If you found LFS useful,
    2727    you should also like this!

    1717  <para>Unlike the Linux From Scratch book, BLFS isn't designed to be
    18   followed in a linear manner. This is because LFS provides instructions
    19   on how to create a base system which is capable of turning into anything
     18  followed in a linear manner. LFS provides instructions
     19  on how to create a base system which can become anything
    2020  from a web server to a multimedia desktop system. BLFS attempts
    2121  to guide you in the process of going from the base system to your intended
    2222  destination. Choice is very much involved.</para>

    24   <para>Everyone who reads the book will want to read certain sections.  The
    25   <xref linkend="introduction"/> part, which you are currently reading,
    26   contains generic information.  Especially take note of the information in
     24  <para>Everyone who reads this book will want to read certain sections.  The
     25  <xref linkend="introduction"/>, which you are currently reading,
     26  contains generic information.  Take special note of the information in

    28   unpack software, issues related to using different locales and various other
    29   aspects which apply throughout the book.</para>

    3131  <para>The part on <xref linkend="postlfs"/> is where most people will want
    32   to turn next.  This deals with not just configuration but also Security
     32  to turn next.  This deals not only with configuration, but also with Security
    3333  (<xref linkend="postlfs-security"/>), File Systems (<xref
    34   linkend="postlfs-filesystems"/>), Editors (<xref
    35   linkend="postlfs-editors"/>) and Shells (<xref linkend="postlfs-shells"/>).
    36   Indeed, you may wish to reference certain parts of this chapter (especially
     34  linkend="postlfs-filesystems"/> -- including GRUB for UEFI), Editors (<xref
     35  linkend="postlfs-editors"/>), and Shells (<xref linkend="postlfs-shells"/>).
     36  Indeed, you may wish to reference some parts of this chapter (especially
    3737  the sections on Editors and File Systems) while building your LFS
    3838  system.</para>

    41   through the <xref linkend="general"/> part of the book.  This part contains
     41  through the <xref linkend="general"/> part of the book.  This contains
    4242  information on many items which are prerequisites for other sections of the
    43   book as well as some items (such as <xref linkend="general-prog"/>)
    44   which are useful in their own right.  Note that you don't have to install all
    45   of these libraries and packages found in this part to start with as each
    46   BLFS installation procedure tells you which packages
    47   it depends upon so you can choose the program you want to install and see
    48   what it needs.</para>

     44  which are useful in their own right.  You don't have to install all
     45  of the libraries and packages found in this part; each

    5050  <para>Likewise, most people will probably want to look at the
    51   <xref linkend="basicnet"/> part.  It deals with connecting to the Internet
     51  <xref linkend="basicnet"/> section.  It deals with connecting to the Internet
    5252  or your LAN (<xref linkend="basicnet-connect"/>)
    5353  using a variety of methods such as DHCP and PPP, and with items
    54   such as Networking Libraries (<xref linkend="basicnet-netlibs"/>) and various

    5959  linkend="server"/> part of the book.  Those wanting to build servers

    61   also contains information on various database packages.</para>

    6262
    63   <para>The next parts of the book principally deal with desktop systems.  This
     63  <para>The next twelve chapters deal with desktop systems.  This
    6464  portion of the book starts with a part talking about <xref linkend="x"/>. This
    6565  part also deals with some generic X-based libraries (<xref linkend="x-lib"/>).
    66   After this, <xref linkend="kde"/> and <xref linkend="gnome"/> are given their
    67   own parts which are followed by one on <xref linkend="xsoft"/>.</para>
     66  After that, <xref linkend="kde"/>, <xref linkend="gnome"/>,

    6869
    6970  <para>The book then moves on to deal with <xref linkend="multimedia"/>
    7071  packages. Note that many people may want to use the <xref linkend="alsa"/>
    71   instructions from this chapter quite near the start of their BLFS
    72   journey; they are placed here simply because it is the most logical
     72  instructions from this chapter when first starting their BLFS
     73  journey; the instructions are placed here because it is the most logical
    7374  place for them.</para>
    7475
    7576  <para>The final part of the main BLFS book deals with <xref
    76   linkend="pst"/>.  This is useful for most people with desktop systems and
    77   even those who are creating mainly server systems will find it useful.</para>
     77  linkend="pst"/>.  This is useful for most people with desktop systems, but

    79   <para>We hope you enjoy using BLFS and find it useful.</para>
