The goal of the Linux™ Standard Base (LSB) is to develop and promote a set of standards that will increase compatibility among Linux distributions and enable software applications to run on any compliant Linux system. There are currently LSB specifications available for the Intel Architecture IA-32™ processors and for the 32- and 64-bit PowerPC™, Itanium™, 31- and 64-bit zSeries™, and AMD64™ architectures. This paper describes the process of building LSB-compliant applications, and covers the use of the LSB development environments, testing of binaries, and packaging.
