Thumbs up Help to build new OS, to run my exclusive hardware and its C++ program


Friends

We designed one hardware which works perfectly with the C++ program tested on windows. Now we want to pack the product which includes the total system along with the Operating System and Application. For that we need you peoples help.

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.

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.

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.

thanks

Hi,

obviously, you checked that the program runs on Linux?
Anyway, in my opinion, the best option is to start from debian
netinstall: http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/

It's a base system: if you miss something you have to install it.

to make a USB from an installed system, in my project I use
http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/ and http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

I think you should get a look at inittab, where thre're the configuration
for the init program.
