    JediLinux 0.1


    Hey,
    If there is anybody out there looking for a GNU/Linux MetaDistribution to play around with, then perhaps you might want to try JediLinux. It is in beta stage right now, as it is only 0.1, and there's not much to it at the moment, but it does feature the force-get package manager, which is also in development. If you are looking for something to hack, you might want to try it:
    ftp://lakerdonald.homelinux.org/jedi...jedi-installer
    (Right-Click => Save Link As)
    It's not much at the moment, but I'm hoping that with some other people helping out it might become something neat.
    Thanks,
    -lakerdonald

    Did you make JediLinux from scratch or base it on a distro?

    I started off originally (as in back in January) with a Gentoo Stage 3 Tarball.
    Then I took it and mangled it beyond recognition (keeping a lot of crap) and added some stuff. So 0.1 is, technically, based on Gentoo. However, while I continue to develop and maintain 0.1.x release series, I'm simultaneously starting work on 0.2.x series. The 0.2.x Release tree of Jedi GNU/Linux is based on nothing (not even LFS!). It is simply a directory with the empty directories /bin, /boot, etc. where I am compiling every single program and utility from scratch.
    So short answer: 0.1 was based on Gentoo, 0.2 won't be. :P

    That's awesome. I want to make my own distro but have no idea how to start. Are you following a guide or are you just using your Linux knowledge? What installer are you using?

    Sorry, I would download it but I am back on dial-up.

    I am following no guide, but the guide of my l33tness.
    haha
    No I'm just making it up as I go along, and it's been working pretty well. I wrote the installer myself, it's just a little shell script at the moment, hopefully i can make that better sometime soon. And I feel your pain: dial-up sucks.
