I will call it Dragon Linux - Fear the Power of the Dragon!


It will come with everything that Linux Mint 4.0 comes with but more. It will have hacking tools, special bookmarks, sensor-applets, AWN, and partition, startup, and other customizers :D

What do you think? Where should I start? I will need help from some people so feel free to offer it. Thanks. Also, if some takes it or it already exists, I do not care, I want to create it anyways <_< And the boot will be that dragon on gnome-look.

Getting into locked wireless networks e_e that is pretty much it.

Are we talking about hacking a neighbor's wireless network, or going to a company/corporation/large business and hacking a corporate network?

Either way this may be a little illegal, don't you think?

umm, ignoring the hacking tools bit and the negative connotations used with it...

http://www.gnewsense.org/Builder/HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution

This will help you create your own distro. All that stuff about downloading and mirroring all of the repos isn't totally necessary, but check it out. It gives you a script that was hacked together by truly dedicated hackers, for the purposes of creating their own totally free distro. But you can use that same script to make whatever kind of Ubuntu derivative you want.

Sorry - I meant to get back around to the unique distro part, but the hacking bit really worried me.

I mean, we are all hackers, but it seemed that someone was trying to create an avenue for less than legal activity.

Unless it was for corporate security purposes, then we all have ago at that from time to time.

I must test our system from time to time for security vulnerabilities, and we use what some would call "hacking" tools.

K, fine. No hacking tools... How about a really freaking cool desktop background >_>

Besides the hacking tools, you may want to think about the name too. Dragon Linux was a distro (now discontinued, but you have to check about the use of the name)


DragonLinux was a distribution of Linux that had the ability to be installed on a loopback file on an existing FAT16 or FAT32 partition.

If you have to ask us for advice here, then you don't have the level of technical expertise to be in charge of a new Linux distro.

Use remastersys to build it. Trust me, though, I wanted to make my own linux distro, but it isn't good as it is getting too redundant.

@OP There are many threads here on making distros, none of them have gotten far unless the person with the idea did most of the work, at least in the beginning.

For hacking tools, that would be a good thing. If it is Ubuntu based, I recommend having the "vim" package (not vim-tiny), build-essential and the entire Python core modules (and other useful Perl, Ruby, Haskell, Lisp and Scheme packages).

If you are mistakingly referring to "cracking" as "hacking", then I recommend you check out: http://www.remote-exploit.org/backtrack.html

I made an app capable of mounting a live-cd as if it were a normal linux installation, chroot to it, modify it and re-compress as a live-cd. You can find it here:

Be sure to read the readme first! (http://code.google.com/p/ulc-livecd-editor/wiki/ReadmeAndFaq)
