The Computer System without Hard disk mostly the Operating System should be on flash disk along with the application
i) The Operating System Fedora, Debian, Redhat or any flavour without unwanted RPMs (to make very small in size to fit in 128, 256,512MB size usb or flash disk) but it should also run the C++ application. for this how i should customize i.e how to remove the unwanted RPMs and make tiny linux (No gui nothing termianl is also ok for me)of my own for the above linux distributions.
obviously, you checked that the program runs on Linux?
Anyway, in my opinion, the best option is to start from debian
It's a base system: if you miss something you have to install it.
ii) After successfully testing my C++ program in the above how should i make this entire setup into the USB from where it should boot and run my application. standalone one.
to make a USB from an installed system, in my project I use
iii) My application should start at booting time before coming the login screen if i break the application that should go to the login screen.
I hope some one will help me to make it happen.
I think you should get a look at inittab, where thre're the configuration
for the init program.
