    Smallest Linux?


    Hey, Im looking for the smallest Linux Distro around that DOES support the 2.6 Kernel.

    Ive found Puppy Linux and DSL. (ofc)
    And I also found Tiny Linux but when I look at that website it looks abandoned.
    I thought that LFS would be small. But you need the have atleast a 4 Gig Partition to begin with..

    And well for some reason Distrowatch doesnt work right today :/
    So, I thought lets ask my good friends. The Linux Forums Members ^^

    So, well what do you think is the smallest Linux Distro?
    New Users, please read this..
    Google first, then ask..

    I don't know which one might be the smallest, but here's a listing of mini-distributions you can look through and maybe find the smallest:

    Yes, DistroWatch was DDoS'ed today, you can use distrowatch.cz while distrowatch.com is down
