Here’s a great site for anyone interested in understanding the internal working of Linux. It’s called Linux From Scratch, and it gives step by step instructions on compiling your very own customized Linux OS from the source code, configuring absolutely everything. Why would you want to do this?
a) complete choice over what you want in your system
b) understanding of how the system actually works.
Warning though, this is not to be tried by beginners. You need some base in Linux before trying it. I plan to take it up soon, after I get confident enough to try n screw with the source code.
PS: I picked up the link from Abhishek’s Blog. So there. I’ve done my duty and let you know!
