I don't use package managers
Yup. Modified LFS as the base, has been for some years now. Nothing can beat the configurability, speed, and the miniscule space use.
I did LFS some time ago too. A must have experience for any Linux guru out there. Today I'm into GenToo though since I get the same ( all self compiled and chooseable ) without the high maintenance time and cost ( especially if you like me administer from home computers over road warrior laptops to business servers ). So I consider GenToo an automated LFS ( even if ALFS itself does exist ). One of my pals at university also wrote an auto-installer system for LFS. Don't know how far he got as our ways split when I switched university back then.
That's why I don't install anything unnecessary / or something temporary goes into it's own self-contained dir in /opt. Additional thought brings better usage philosphy too.
Wow we're offtopic here. Come back around!
Blood Frontier is, far and away, the best open source FPS I have played yet. I encourage people to try it.
