creating my own distrib,

Post by Bill » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I have heard that some people decide to 'mix and match' some of the features
of various Linux distributions.  I have downloaded all the packages I know
to be required by a regular distribution (the kernel, X...) But how do I
make this collection of packages bootable??



1. How to build my own "distrib"

As I tried many different distribs, I noticed that they all had
advantages and inconveniants, son I was wondering how could I manage to
make my own "distrib" with a customized init and etc..

I know that after booting the kernel reads the init.d
but I don't know how to make my own bootdisk ( which will say to the
kernel where to read init), and a root disk with sulogin and the init.

I also don't know wich packages to install first. For example, i would
like to install the egcs and the glibc but what do they require? And how
to compile/install what they require?

Thanks a lot, and keep doing your good job.
