I have successfully created BLFS 8.4 and now I want to make its iso file so that I can transfer it to my other laptop like any other Linux distribution such as Ubuntu, Mint, Manjaro, etc. is installed using an iso file.

    There is probably someone with some good insight into this, but I'll share my thoughts... One of the major differences between the various distributions is the installation process. As you know, the (B)LFS installation process is to manually build everything from source. To accomplish what you seek is probably going to look more like a restore procedure than a guided installation. Then there is the question of hardware support, which you can overcome with a highly generic kernel (or two)... But also, if you've built with optimizations, your binaries may not execute on different hardware. – rfmodulator Dec 7 '20 at 20:30
  • There must be some way! – Palash Tekam Dec 8 '20 at 5:54
  • Or then how do they make and distribute operating systems. I have read somewhere that MacOS X was based on LFS 6.1 – Palash Tekam Dec 8 '20 at 6:01
  • Would it work if I tar up the LFS system and untar it on an empty partition of the target machine? – Palash Tekam Dec 8 '20 at 18:54
