How build small a packages


Hi,
I'm very new to the linux .

I want to build some small soft wares in linux .

Example there is OS called ttylinux (http://www.minimalinux.org/ttylinux/) it supports only few packages , example it doesn't support GCC compiler etc ..
So I want built this packages to the os and create a final image out of it .

regards
Bala

If you want to extend ttylinux you should have a look at its built-system.

If you are new to Linux then building packages for a given system isn't the first way to go, in my eyes. Learn your way around the commandline first, then go further from that.
But anyways, I had a look at the build-system package you can download for ttylinux and it comes with documentation, so have a look at that first. It may also help to have a look at LFS to get a better understanding on how Linux works in general.

TobiSGD is right, building packages for someone new to linux can be quite a task, you'll need to have the same operating sytem that ttylinux is based on, this will be the build system, this will have develpement libraries installed, and also other software packages dependencies installed as well.
