Hi!

When I'm going to the download page of the tarballs.
I saw that there are two stages, stage3 and stage4.

What's the differences between them?

Thanks!

There used to be a stage 2, which had to be bootstrapped and was even more "linux from scratch" than the stage 3. A stage 4 tarball has more components pre-installed, such as a desktop, server software, or whatever else that stage 4 flavor was designed for.

There also used to be a Stage-1, a bit more primitive than Stage-2, even. There used to be (still are?) instructions titled "Stage-1 on Stage-3" instructions that began with a Stage-3 tarball, but followed Stage-1 procedures. I did that back in the day when I had a K6-III server.

Now that you mention it, I remember the stage 1 install now. Good times. 8)
