Hi, good to hear from you my friend.
I have been busy writing guides these last couple of months that is why I have not been on as much and I mainly work in networking now.
I hope all is well with you.
Thanks Blasphemist. Just glancing at that book, it looks real neat. I'll be migrating a clone of my current, to date, os into virtual box this sunday (God willing I have the time). I had kinda put the making a system from scratch thing on the back burner for a while but I haven't forgotten about it - not by a long shot. One of these day's I'd like to mess around with seL4 too.
Thanks for the link. How are you doing by the way? Seems like I haven't heard from you in quite a while. Well, anyhoo . . . I'm sure I'll see you around. Have a good Friday and weekend to come.
Hi Jake! I hope all is well with you.
I just ran into something I'm going to investigate. As a learning tool. Given your interest the last time we "talked" in a minimalized and clean system, I thought this might be of interest to you.
This is about building your own Linux. Here is a quote.
One important reason for this project's existence is to help you learn how a Linux system works from the inside out. Building an LFS system helps demonstrate what makes Linux tick, and how things work together and depend on each other. One of the best things that this learning experience can provide is the ability to customize a Linux system to suit your own unique needs.
LFS allows you to create very compact Linux systems. When installing regular distributions, you are often forced to install a great many programs which are probably never used or understood. These programs waste resources.
Thanks dixiedancer. Yes, I love it. These folks are like the family I never had. What I have found here is a whole lot of love - and I love it. And, even though I have had some challenges with Linux on my system (by a longshot it's my system though) I am determined to keep at it. I love the opportunity to learn that I am getting from this experience. I know that it will server me well in the future if I choose to enter a technical field in the industry.
Be blessed dixiedancer
