This looks like a great place to mingle and discuss some tek.

 

I am currently working on building a Linux distro using Virtualbox and a Linux live-cd for GNU tools.

This is a nice method for development where the host platform provides additional support for the work.

 

I grew up on a variety of flavors Unix/Linux, from Redhat, Slackware, Debian, Gentoo, Mandrake, FreeBSD,

and remember how they worked and were designed, and how some things improved, but some things

seemed to get a little strange in the Linux world.

 

FreeBSD has always been really nice, no radical departures from traditions.

 

What I want in a Linux distro is to have true bin and sbin paths (no symlinks),

and a FHS filesystem tree with greater control of init and package selection for installs,

and choices for declining specific packages that may not be wanted or needed.

 

I want to see an expansion of choices. I remember a time when I could choose individual

packages for an install and had exactly what I wanted on first boot. It was really nice.

 

It would also be nice to have a Linux systems builder LiveCD with all the libraries and tools

needed to provide a platform from which to build a custom Linux system.

A full compliment of programming languages and libraries for a complete gcc build is the idea.

 

I have not seen exactly what I wanted that would fill these needs so I have decided to

work on creating my own Linux distro/system builder.

 

There is a lot to learn and much to design in the process - which brings me here.

 

Hope to have many good conversations with at least a few of you on these topics.

 

Cheers

 

Matt
