Tools and techniques for creating custom Linux systems



Tools such as Linux From Scratch, NimbleX Live CD Generator, Kiwi image system, and the Ubuntu Customization Kit can help you create your own custom Linux system.

If you can’t find a Linux that strikes your fancy, why not roll your own? A new generation of Linux tools helps you build a custom Linux system. You can use these distro-building tools to create Live CDs – bootable discs suitable for troubleshooting, mass installation, and even ordinary end-user tasks. Add a missing driver to the base system and remaster a modified DVD, then start your familiar home environment from anywhere – without disturbing the contents of the hard drive.
