13  <para>This chapter shows how to compile and install a minimal Linux
14  system. This system will contain just enough tools to start
15  constructing the final CLFS system in <xref
16  linkend="chapter-building-system"/> and allow a working environment
17  with more user convenience than a minimum environment would.</para>
18
19  <para>The tools in this chapter are cross-compiled using the toolchain in
20  /cross-tools and will be installed under the
21  <filename class="directory">$CLFS/tools</filename> directory to keep
22  them separate from the files installed in <xref
23  linkend="chapter-building-system"/> and the host production directories.
24  Since the packages compiled here are temporary, we do not want them to
25  pollute the soon-to-be CLFS system.</para>
26
27  <para>Check one last time that the <envar>LFS</envar> environment
28  variable is set up properly:</para>
29
30<screen><userinput>echo $CLFS</userinput></screen>
31
32  <para>Make sure the output shows the path to the CLFS partition's mount
33  point, which is <filename class="directory">/mnt/lfs</filename>, using
34  our example.</para>
35
36  <para>During this section of the build you will see several WARNING
37  messages like the one below. It is safe to ignore these messages.</para>
38
39<blockquote><screen><computeroutput>configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
40    If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.</computeroutput></screen></blockquote>
