I have a gig or so which is currently unused disk space at home, and I'd
like to set it up as a "pure" linux dist, that is, installing all packages
from source, and configuring stuff by hand from scratch.
Anybody have any guidelines about what I should do, and in what order? I'm
thinking of things like whether I should recompile everything with the
"new" gcc/egcs after I've compiled it, whether it's just a matter of
making partitions, making fileystems, mounting them and copying stuff
across, where I'd get the major/minor numbers for the /dev files, and,
basically, the minimum that needs to be done to get a first successful
Any references, stuff to watch out for, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
