My question is bit off-topic or may be impractical.


The thing is, on the web too many material available to download customized linux distro. But what if I want to make my own linux distro ?

Lets say I have downloaded linux kernel, gnome dekstop, gnu grub. How can I build my own distro with help of these.

I want your help, reference, links.

Thank you.

Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own custom Linux system, entirely from source code..

Hi @ThatGraemeGuy. I found this on web. But I want a tutorial like thing. –  Aditya Apr 3 '14 at 9:57
    
We really do prefer that answers contain content not pointers to content. Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  Iain Apr 3 '14 at 10:03
    
@Iain & Aditya, it simply isn't possible to distill the instructions involved in LFS in any meaningful way, it is a very complex undertaking. –  ThatGraemeGuy Apr 3 '14 at 12:57
    
@ThatGraemeGuy: That's why we have a too broad close reason. –  Iain Apr 3 '14 at 13:03
    
My point is that complaining that there's not enough detail in the answer is meaningless, since there's no reasonable way to go into further detail. –  ThatGraemeGuy Apr 3 '14 at 19:48
