Core Linux Distribution 2.0 Beta

Core is a minimal distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system.
Core is a minimal distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system designed to be the basis for a complete system constructed by the end user. A fresh installation of Core will boot into a console and provide the user with the tools needed to download, compile and install other applications. Core contains nothing beyond what is required to perform these tasks.

Core is primarily designed for experienced Linux users, though it has found an audience with those looking to learn about the internals and operation of a Linux system. Core requires the user to manually configure, compile and install applications and expects the user to consult man pages and other documentation.


These instructions are incomplete, but should be sufficient:

Download, burn and boot the ISO.
Partition, format and mount the hard drive.
Run 'install_core [mount point of hard drive]'.
Optional packages in /pkgs/optional can be installed with corepkg(8).
Copy the kernel from /pkgs/kernel to /usr/src of the hard drive.
Run 'chroot [mount point] bash -l' to chroot into the new system.
Compile and install the Linux kernel [be sure to run LILO].
Review and modify the files under /etc.
Reboot and start constructing the new system.
