    Distro Source


    I was looking around at various different distros for linux. I was wondering if there was possible way to get the source code for these distros without being an offical developer of the distro or something.

    Yes, you can. Most distros make the source code of their distro available via http or ftp servers as individual packages or iso images for the entire distro. What distros did you have in mind?

    Some distros come with the source code when you download or purchase the complete set. Slackware is a good example.

    OK, thanks, I'll have too look for them. Also some distors I had in mind were Suse, Mandriva, and now I'll look at Slackware.
