33
34 <para>The LSB has four separate standards: Core, Desktop,
35 Runtime Languages, and Imaging. In addition to generic requirements
36 there are also architecture specific requirements. There are also two
37 areas for trial use: Gtk3 and Graphics. LFS attempts to conform to the
38 architectures discussed in the previous section.</para>
39
40 <note><para>Many people do not agree with the requirements of the LSB.
41 The main purpose of defining it is to ensure that proprietary software
42 will be able to be installed and run properly on a compliant system.
43 Since LFS is source based, the user has complete control over what
44 packages are desired and many choose not to install some packages that
45 are specified by the LSB.</para></note>

50 <para>Creating a complete LFS system capable of passing the LSB
51 certifications tests is possible, but not without many additional packages
52 that are beyond the scope of LFS. These additional packages have
53 installation instructions in BLFS. </para>
