Linux Distribution: ROCK
Url: http://www.rocklinux.org/

 
ROCK is a Distribution Build Kit. You can configure your personal build of ROCK and easily build your own distribution (see the screenshots).

About ROCK
It is software for managing operating environments. In a way it is a software development toolkit for building OS solutions.



The available config options include, but are not limited to:



Package Selection

You can select the packages you want to have in your Distribution. So packages you don't want or need are not build at all. A list of available packages can be found here.



Compiler and Optimization

You can select a compiler (by default gcc3) and optimization options for building your distribution. That enables you to highly optimize for your hardware. You can also build your entire distribution with the GCC Stack-Smashing Protector enabled for enhanced security.



Dietlibc

You can use dietlibc instead of the GNU LibC as your C library. That can be very useful e.g. for embedded systems.



And much more ...

Other options are: selection of an init-style, custom GNU configure options, cross-building, and much more. A major focus in the ROCK development always has been to make adding new features and config options as easy as possible
