    Creating a Distribution


    Hi

    I have been using E-smith for a while now and I have used it as a gateway machine and development server on quite a few clients now and for the most part it has worked great. It is starting to get a bit limited in where I am taking it all though in that I am finding the need to set up things like an http interface for Q-mail for one client and I am finding the whole template system in E-smith a pain to work with.

    So, I decided to get a version of Redhat to create my own distribution to give to clients, for no charge, that will be a bit more flexible than E-smith. Plus it will be a fun project to work on and to stretch me a bit. I downloaded 7.3, got a cheap second hand computer to tinker on and I am ready to start.

    I am just wondering if any one has some good pointers or is aware of any good resources on this subject of creating your own distribution?

    Cheers and thx in advance.

    I think gentoo would be good for what you want. It has everything laid out for you on creating your own distro. You just have to "emerge" what you want from the ports. http://www.gentoo.org
