Building a custom Linux with the NimbleX Live CD Generator


Article from Issue 88/2008

If you want customization without all the fuss, then try building your own custom ISO image with the web-based Custom NimbleX Live CD Generator.

NimbleX is a minimal Linux distribution based on Slackware. The compact NimbleX system is used primarily for Live CDs and USB sticks, and according to the website, NimbleX also runs well from the hard drive or even over the network. But perhaps the most interesting feature of NimbleX is the custom CD generation service available through the project website. The Custom NimbleX Live CD Generator lets you select the components and applications you want to include in the system, then it generates a Live CD image on the basis of your specifications. By simply selecting applications from a series of menus, the Live CD Generator resolves any dependencies behind the scenes.
