How would I go about creating my own Linux Distro?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
And I mean one made pretty much from scratch, not based off of any other distro (Especially not Ubuntu, IMO there's way too many 'buntus out as it is).

Would I just download the Linux kernal and edit it and change things in it, or is it more complicated?

I know quite a bit about programming in C/C++ and BASIC, and I know a lot about how Unix OS's work, if any of that helps.

So, any tips or guides that would help me to make a new GNU/Linux distro?

Linux From Scratch and RockLinux are the only two I remember, there is another one, just can't think of it right now.

Something else that I can suggest that can be just about as good, and save you tons of time. Get the base iso for Arch linux. That will let you install a very basic, no bloat, linux install. From there you can install the things you want (either source or binary), and downlaod a vanilla kernel and configure it.
