    How to build my own flavour of Linux?!


    My aim is to understand comprehensively how an operating system works. I thought Linux would be the best place to start since its an open source OS.

    Can somebody tell me how i can completely understand the implementation of the linux kernel,shell etc. I know its completely done in C.

    But how do i start? Where can i download the source code from and how do i learn it?

    My ultimate aim would be to build my own flavor of Linux so that i can understand how EVERYTHING works!!! Hopefully the replies to this thread is a start!

    Thank you.

    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    You can give Rock Linux a try for building your own, too:
