Hello nullbyte community. I have been wanting to get to learn linux, and have been over time. I have used various distributions both in virtual box and as a main operating system.
I have not been happy with just one system for too long, and when somthing goes south i get impatient rather quickly to find out the problem. No, it is not because i don't want to learn but because i rather not be solving an issue i will be solving once whereas i could learn other things i'll use over time.
Anyway linux is my operating system of choice. I am thinking about following the linux from scratch book and building a distribution for my needs, nothing complex.. just a distribution to meet my needs which would be browsing the web and editing files.
I'm doing this both for the sake of learning, and actually have a motive to fix my system, even the smallest of issues because i'll have dedicated time and effort into building my distribution and getting it to my liking, not just following some installer.
What do you think of this idea of building a linux distro from scratch? have you built yours from scratch and what was it like? how rewarding was it?
I may start a series, or a "diary" of building my distribution from scratch, but that depends on if i'm skilled enough to even start this project. I just wanted to start a group discussion on this topic, i'm sure we all have our side projects.. hopefully this can be mine.
