I've done the large compile time and/or test time packages (apart from
the Linux compile near the very end). About 30 packages to go, then on
to "System Configuration".
I expanded the disk space for the system, 6G was just too small.
Especially needed the space as I'm keeping some package build
directories so I can re-run the tests for them when other packages have
been built (as detailed in the book).
The book makes use of advanced shell features and sed. I had thoughts
that we could do a talk on sed, perhaps including how it fits into the
history of text editors and Unix-like systems. Even encompassing grep,
AWK and Perl. What do you think?
