Creating a custom Linux install/distribution from my own packages

5 posts in this topic

Okay, so, suppose I wanted to throw my own packages together, and customize my install of any given distro of Linux. How do find install "base" for each of the packages I'd like to include, then, slap it together to be installed?

I realize that you can choose your packages at install-time with most distros, to some extent. I also realize that Gentoo is usually used for this end (which is why people tend to call it a "Ricer" Linux flavor).

Debian would be a primary start, for me, if I were to go by any single distro., but if you can supply better information more generically, I'm still all ears.

To start at an even "lower" level, you could look at Linux From Scratch:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/

Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own custom Linux system, entirely from source code.

I've always wanted to set one up, but never quite have the time to dig into it.
