Make OS Based On linux


Well-Known Member
First you need a idea what your os should do or for which people it should be made.
Then you have to choose a distro on wich your distro should base on(I would recommend arch).
Another question is if your distro should be a rolling distro or not.
You also have to choose a DE, a display-manager, a x-server etc.
You may also write special software for your distro, to make it a distro and not just a flavor.
Your distro also needs a need.
You can also make your distro more beautiful using themes or special configurations of for example your grub.

Before you get too far along with this, you may want to go through the exercise of others trials.

This usually takes a day or two to go go thru (depending on many things, like how fast your computer/hard drive are)
But it gives a good perspective of what it takes to create your own Linux distro.
