Hello and welcome to LQ.

In a very general sense a distro has a few features.
some vision statement or feature statement to begin with,
target audience,
target hardware(s),
means to deploy,
means to update and manage,
sources or list of sources per upstream licenses,
testing usually.
Maybe many more features.

What have you so far?

You may want to check out Auto-ISAC which are cyber security standards for cars. Also you way want to check out what AGL is doing as their trying to build a standardized platform and applications framework for the entire auto industry. The main idea with AGL is that the kernel, middleware, and app framework will all be common and shared among manufacutures and suppliers. AGL's UCB (unfied code base) distro can be built for QEMU, Rasberry Pie 2&3, Intel Minnowboard, NXP I .MX6x Wandboard, TI Jacinto 6 Vayu board, and the Renesas R-Car Stater Kit Gen3.. AGL is responsible for IVI systems, instrument clusters, telematics, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), control systems, and more! The AGL distobution is released twice a year with LTS, and the source code is available on their wiki.. Also I hear they have a robust developer site..

Hi, welcome to LQ,

Nice idea. I will suggest you first do a Linux From Scratch (LFS) before moving forward to building and maintaining your own distro. But in order to do LFS, you will need to do it from within a working distro. So, you should know your ways around Linux.

So, make some space somewhere on a machine and install a fairly simple distro (e.g. Debian, Linux Mint). Play with it a little bit: check out: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/index.html, you can download other formats of the book and also find other books at http://www.tldp.org/guides.html.

Then you check out: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ and build your LFS.

If you need any help for installing a distro or dual booting you can make another thread and we'll surely help you.

All the best.

Thank you. I'm also newbie in Linux. I will follow the links you share and research more.
