wanted: tiny linux as host-os just for playing virtual machines (vmware)
is someone here interessted in creating a real tiny linux-distro?
-- bootable from CD or USB-stick
-- gui (x-server) - only active if starting up vmware-player
-- vmware-player (of course)
-- config-"tool" for setting up IP-address manually if dhcp is n/a
-- access on various partions (reiserFS, fat, fat32, ...) for opening the VMs
the idea is to have generally equal "hardware" so it is easily possible to boot up VMs... without having a "real" OS installed on your PC
this newly to build OS could be called vmware-player-player :>
so anyone interessted in creating this OS?
my linux skills are descent so i´m currently not able to create my idea by myself...

damn small linux is only about 50 MB. doesn't get much smaller than that. and once it's installed to hard drive or usb stick it is a basic debian install.Desktop: Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz 1.5 GB RAM Ubuntu/XP Pro
Laptop: Macbook 2 GHz C2Duo 3 GB RAM OS X/ Ubuntu/ XP Pro

hehe, you could always remove tcc and maybe make it a tad smaller , but truoc's right, it wont get any smaller than that...not quite a true deb install though, gcc being replaced with tcc does change alot of functionality.Operating System: GNU Emacs
