Default Build a new Linux distrib based Crux 2.6

A few people are doing that, including me why another one?


To learn, of course.I already built a distro on a top of Fedora (and tried LFS), but it wasn't a real success.A friend of mine told me about Crux.

Is there a doc/tuto which will help me start on that as I'm really new?
Does someoine tried that before?

what? and why?

exactly, why?

CRUX fits all my needs, as a desktop, workstation, server, etc.

Why you need to do a fork? Just use another ports tree and surely it
will do all you need.

No *body says that CRUX will not fits my needs.
As I write before, I want to "learn", and only that !!!

Hi Clemens,

we usually prefer using real names in here... please fix that.

Sorry, I'm Ferret !*
I did several LFS installations and (re-)ported the x86 CRUX

over to an embedded PowerPC (MPC8540 CPU) some time ago.



CRUX is very good to get some plain Linux knowledge.

But what exactly do you want to learn?


First of all, learn how/why CRUX was built (from Per Linden point of view,even if I can easily imagine that a lot of stuffs evolved since then).

I'd like to understand his motivation by looking to the code, the scripts ...One of my targets is to build the smallest distro based on CRUX (let say <10MB).*

If you failed with LFS
Don't misunderstand me please. I successfully built distros based on LFS, butthe result wasn't satisfying (eg. no package management, no network manager ...).
* CRUX propably doesn't make things*easier.
Who knows!*
Aside of that, you can start by building a new CRUX*.iso starting from the latest git repo.


Planned for tomorrow morning. I'll let you know.

If you are not satisfied with the results, please come back*and tell us what you are missing. It's quite possible that things

can easily added by creating some ports.

Currently, I'm looking to the "ports system" and try to learn how to use/create them.*It seems to be very simple and even looks similar*to BSD's ports style. Am I right?

RegardsFerret
