10 scripts to create your own Linux distribution | News | TechRa Those familiar with Linux will be able to tweak settings, add and remove apps and customise the menu, toolbars and other desktop elements. Incredibly, those are about all the skills you need to create your very own Linux distro. We're going to take a look at some scripts that'll help you customise different distros. 1. This tool has a newbie-proof GUI and works on both Ubuntu and Debian distros and any of their derivatives. Remastersys works by transferring the distro you're running into an ISO image. The Ubuntu Customisation Kit – which is tastefully shortened to UCK – works with the ISO of any of the four Ubuntu flavours (the GNOME based original Ubuntu, KDE-based Kubuntu, Xfce-based Xubuntu and education-targeted Edubuntu) and lets you add or remove any apps to the stock. This tool is ideal for advanced users because during the customisation process it places you in a chrooted environment of the Live CD, enabling you to tweak any aspect of the distro. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Minimal CD Image Introduction The minimal iso image will download packages from online archives at installation time instead of providing them on the install media itself. Downloading packages at install time reduces the size of the iso image to approximately ~40MB depending on architecture (see below), as well as providing only the packages needed for installation. The download time savings achieved by using a mini iso can be significant, as only current packages are downloaded, so there is no need to upgrade packages immediately after installation. The mini iso uses a text-based installer, making the image as compact as possible. To use the mini iso image download mini.iso from one of the following links and burn it to a CD or USB drive. For help with CD burning, see BurningIsoHowto For help with USB drive burning, see Installation/FromUSBStick For differences between Ubuntu release versions, please see Releases. To install, boot your computer from the the mini iso and select "Install" at the prompt.

Arch Compared to Other Distributions This page attempts to draw a comparison between Arch Linux and other popular GNU/Linux distributions and UNIX-like operating systems. The summaries that follow are brief descriptions that may help a person decide if Arch Linux will suit their needs. Although reviews and descriptions can be useful, first-hand experience is invariably the best way to compare distributions. Source-based Source-based distributions are highly portable, giving the advantage of controlling and compiling the entire OS and applications for a particular machine architecture and usage scheme, with the disadvantage of the time-consuming nature of source compilation. The Arch base and all packages are compiled for i686 and x86_64 architectures, offering a potential performance boost over i486/i586 binary distributions, with the added advantage of expedient installation.
