LFS own name and logo


Is it possible to create LFS and give it your own name and logo?

i mean, some distros name are Debian Linux, Mandriva, etc. Can linux enthusiast create LFS then give it their own name also and logo? like MyOwnName Linux.

if yes, do you have any suggestions how to do it?

very big tanx!

You mean: "can I create my own distro?" And the answer is: "of course you can."

How to do it?
Carefully.

Best to start with an existing distro and modify it.
Make sure you are very clear on why you want to do this, and what you hope to achieve.

There are plenty of web pages to help you.

... and, of course, you are going to read the licences of packages, while creating YOUR LFS, right?

That is not what i meant. An elaboration of my question is "after creating Linux From Scratch, can i give it my own name and logo?"

If there are web sites catering to this question, what are their URL?

Big thanks for those who would be helping!

The answer is yes you can. If you need to know how, you'll need to be more specific as to the where. Where do you want this logo to appear?

That screen at the start is the GRUB splash screen.

You can completely personalize any distro with the various splash screens, icon sets and so on. Knock yourself out.

You may also want to take a look at http://www.bootsplash.org/Welcome_to...world_of_Linux for a boot splash. That is the screen you see when Linux it's self starts, well that is you will see the splash if it has one installed.
