11.3. Rebooting the System

Now that all of the software has been installed, it is time to reboot your computer. However, there are still a few things to check. Here are some suggestions:

Now that we have said that, let's move on to booting our shiny new LFS installation for the first time! First exit from the chroot environment:


Then unmount the virtual file systems:

umount -v $LFS/dev/pts
mountpoint -q $LFS/dev/shm && umount $LFS/dev/shm
umount -v $LFS/dev
umount -v $LFS/run
umount -v $LFS/proc
umount -v $LFS/sys

If multiple partitions were created, unmount the other partitions before unmounting the main one, like this:

umount -v $LFS/home
umount -v $LFS

Unmount the LFS file system itself:

umount -v $LFS

Now, reboot the system.

Assuming the GRUB boot loader was set up as outlined earlier, the menu is set to boot LFS r11.2-227 automatically.

When the reboot is complete, the LFS system is ready for use and more software may be added to suit your needs.
