After some review of the dual licensing of LFS, it’s occured to me I need more segmentation in my planning for how to get to a new distro that I can offer commercial support for and distribute for commercial use.
That’s not the core reason for doing this, but, I’d like to be compensated eventually for all the hard work, and perhaps hire people and build a company around it.
I think in order to get there, I’ll need to make some pivots on approach on this.
To get around the non-commercial shit in LFS’ licensing, I’ll probably, once I get to a releasable state, release this build as a project called “ALFS- NG” that inherits the crap they snuck in there and have DHLP be a non-derivative rewrite.
I’m still thinking about it, but, if that’s the direction, once ALFS-NG is good to a certain point, I’ll be able to apply what I’ve learned to Dark Horse Linux. I feel as I’m going through this process that LFS has many, many unnecessary steps to do something like this.
I may even do a second build with one of the RPM variants of LFS/BLFS to get an idea of what I’m in for in terms of introducing binary package management cleanly.
