Description

As a convenience to users who may not still have the Shadow source tarball, a link should be provided in the BLFS instructions. If not a link to the actual source tarball, than at least link to the appropriate section in the LFS book.

Severity: normalmajor

Updated shadow instructions to include download link and build entities. However, the PLD site's shadow download directory is currently unavailable.

This bug should be left open until a reliable download location for the package is available, even it it means pointing to Anduin.

Since the PLD FTP site is still down, it might be best to update BLFS with the following URL to download the package.

ftp://ftp.linuxfromscratch.org/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.0/shadow-4.0.4.1.tar.bz2
