    Programming a Distro in C++


    Hi,

    I've searched everywhere for how to do this and one of my mates said it was quite simpleish as you already had all the kernel made for you. I'm fluent in C++ and just wondered how easy it would be to make my own. I guess do I start out with fiddling around with the source of other distros?

    Thanks very much,

    Matt. Ireland

    Rock Linux is another build your own distro that might work, or at least help, too:

    I hope you're fluent in C as well when taking on this task, because I think you will find a lot of the OS level things are programmed in it.

    Thanks guys! I'll give those distros a try!

    I have an understanding of C but don't reckon I could write a particularly complex program in it.... I suppose I could pick it up quite quickly as I know C++ C# and PHP which have all derived from it
