TinyLinux - Project (http://tinylinux.sourceforge.net)


TinyLinux is a small Linux Distribution for i386 derived from SuSE 6.4. In the base version it just contains the things which are necessary to run Linux. Therefore the base package is rather small and requires approx. 7MB.

The purpose of this Distribution is to have a small and clear system which can be used as starting point for further developments. Since this is a tiny Linux its use is not limited to desktop systems but is also suitable for embedded systems.

All binaries, directories and configuration files are taken from SuSE. So, if you need a more detailed description refer to www.suse.com (or www.suse.de) or contact me.

For comments, bug reports or suggestions refer to SourceForge or send email to Daniel Etzold.
