Description (last modified by Fernando de Oliveira)

In LFS:

 It is also a good idea to create a file to show the status of your new system with respect to the Linux Standards Base (LSB). To create this file, run:

cat > /etc/lsb-release << "EOF"
DISTRIB_ID="Linux From Scratch"
DISTRIB_RELEASE="7.5-rc1"
DISTRIB_CODENAME="<your name here>"
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux From Scratch"
EOF

If someone does not do that, after installing in BLFS (no mention to configuration, there):

$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	n/a
Distributor ID:	n/a
Description:	7.5-rc1
Release:	n/a
Codename:	n/a

If the configuration was done in LFS:

$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	n/a
Distributor ID:	Linux From Scratch
Description:	Linux From Scratch
Release:	7.5-rc1
Codename:	lfs-jhalfs

Thanks. You've got exactly the solution I was trying to find in dev, in order to avoid duplication.
