Looks like someone used LFS to build it. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5189860

They have a few links to the guides they used. It would be nice if the developers posted a little development doc for how they build it for release. I've been looking around on their website and wiki but have not come across such a document.

Thank u for responding my post.why such distros not post detail information about development of distro they simply says it developed from source.all know that all linux distros are developed from source but detail information is needed to young(new) developers.

Perhaps because they have become specialist distro system. They might have deviated from the original too much. And they now use their specialist distro as base.

Atleast we have LFS/CLFS to be used as guide/scaffold to make our owns.

Hello carl_CJ
Dragora is 'built from scratch' by a single individual, whose username is 'selk foster'. We have to useit, that's all. We need not build dragora from scratch
ISO for dragora 2.2 is available. You can use it to install it
Dragora 3.0 is still under development

Selk foster should fully document his process for building (and post scripts if applicable) so there's not "tribal knowledge" around the process. That is, only a "single individual" knows how to do any one thing. What if selk foster gets hit by a bus tomorrow and dies? The end of Dragura? It's silly to say that one person is a bottle neck when it could be easily documented. One of the goals is being free software, correct? Part of that freedom is how to build it. Otherwise source code is a bunch of useless text that nobody can build. Just my two cents as an outside observer. I don't use Dragura nor plan to. Earlier I was simply trying to help an LQ user with their question since they were in the zero reply thread.

For the next version see git.dragora.org. For 2.2 I'm not sure. I think he didn't use a build script, only built it once, manually.

You can bootstrap Dragora 3 and there are instructions on git, as frusen posted, as well as on the mailing lists. Dragora 2 really was built manually only once and there are no scripts to remake that process, that is why this is being improved for the next release.

That's much better I like the new bootstrap process.
