Is it possible to have a package manager(in my case pacman) on LFS? Not just compiling it will it work?

    Pacman is distro-agnostic: there is no reason why it shouldn't work on LFS...

Once you install a package manager and begin to use it (plus repos), lfs basically ceases to be lfs and becomes the distro using that package manager and repos. What here is your goal in using lfs? If you want special self-built packages/kernel, you may as well install arch linux and then build those packages with makepkg and/or write your own PKGBUILD for those packages not in the default repos.

  • Hmm, yeah it's kinda pointless. Anyway thanks for reply.
