HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution Filed in: Builder.HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution ยท Modified on : Thu, 28 May 09 As part of creating gNewSense, we created our Builder which allows for the creation of a new GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu Hardy. From a simple config file you can choose the name of your distribution, release, tagline and what packages you'd like to be installed/removed by default. Graphics will be automatically generated. These scripts are obviously biased towards producing gNewSense, but should provide a good base to work off. Note that there is no need to follow these steps to use gNewSense, you can download an iso from one of the Mirrors. You'll need at least 80GB of free disk space, and preferably a very fast Internet connection (you'll be pulling 40GB of data). This can be run on any Debian derivative capable of bootstrapping Ubuntu Hardy (8.04). All commands must be run as root. If you have any queries, please drop into our IRC channel. This is still very much beta software.
