Announcing CLFS 1.0.0rc1 - The "Bender" release

The CLFS Development team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of CLFS-1.0.0, code-name "Bender". This test release features Glibc 2.4, GCC 4.1.1, Binutils 2.17, and supports the x86, x86-64, sparc, powerpc, ppc64, mips, mips64, and alpha, including multilib on those arch's that support it. Cross-building is also supported, even from non-Linux host systems such as Solaris, *BSD, and OS X.

The developers encourage wide testing of the CLFS build on as many archs as possible, proofreading of the text, and any other suggestions. Please open tickets in the Trac system at for any problems found, so we may address them.

You may view the book online at:

and downloadable versions are available for most arch's at:

The current plan calls for RC2 to be released on July 8th, and the final release of 1.0.0 on July 15th. Of course, we want to make every effort to ensure a good release, so if further RC's are necessary, we will allow for them.

We thank you for your support!
