Need Technical Help - for creating custom Linux Distro

Iam the Author of the Open Source Project: Traffic Squeezer.

Traffic Squeezer is a WAN Acceleration solution:

The project development is still under progress. The delivery of the solution I want to provide to the end-users as a stand-alone Linux Distro along with pre-installed Traffic Squeezer solution. Since Traffic Squeezer has the code both in kernel level as well as in user-space I want to make it as a complete custom Linux installable distro and bundle.

I never worked ever building a custom Linux Distro. If there is anyone who want to volunteer you are welcome. Or possible if you have any suggestions or ideas on the same please feel free to communicate with me.

Thank you foks. Kiran Kankipati

There are many tutorials on how to "roll your own" based on your favorite distro. You can also look at the Linux From Scratch website to see how they build a system. (

Also, be aware that any code you put into the Linux kernel MUST be last GPLv2, not GPLv3. Otherwise you will have thousands of furious kernel hackers.

Dear pinniped

Well I had checked long back LFS. But I expect some volunteer for this project who knows already little bit on creating custom linux distro. Since I feel it should save lot of project time.

TS is released exclusively under GPLv2. So it should not be an issue its source is completely open. Anyone can download use it, refine it or even contribute the project development.
