Im looking for some insight about how to go about starting to build a small custom linux distribution. (live and HD install if possible)
I'm thinking of a movix2 type distro except without the kernel patches and mplayer. I would like to include a few extra packages to it instead rather.
I have downloaded the movix-builder from cvs and im looking over it for ideas about how the developer made it.
Any other projects that anyone can think of that would help me accomplish this task? or that i could modify to do the same?
Sorry, i should have mentioned i want a busybox based system.
I have had terrible luck with buildroot but I managed to get a basic system going last night with it. Now to try to get my own programs compiled and added into it.
Thanks for your reply.
