Minimal Linux Live is a set of small shell scripts which build very minimal live Linux OS entirely from source code (Linux kernel + BusyBox). The released version '25-Aug-2014' brings some major improvements compared to the previous version.


Some of the improvements are: * The boot process is now based on /sbin/init and /etc/inittab. * The shell scripts have been updated and comment lines have been added. The most notable change is in 5_generate_rootfs.sh which generates file/folder structure compatible with /sbin/init and /etc/inittab. * The download process now supports interruptions which means that partially downloaded source bundles will continue to download the next time the scripts are executed. * There is a separate 'source' folder which holds the downloaded source bundles. The 'work' folder is used only to compile the sources. You can find the latest sources and pre-built ISO images on the project's website: http://minimal.linux-bg.org
