IWLinux
« on: July 03, 2016, 11:12:11 PM »

Why - just to see if I could.
I started with Sparky as the basis of IWLinux - used for about a year.
Had everything working on 32 bit  - compiler and distro - then BAM gtk changed a bunch of stuff.
Next I migrated to PinguyOS - great OS for a basis of a new Linux. Seems to be
having growing pains and owner is threatening to abandon it.

So - IWLinux - It will be for Programmers building Compilers - right now just starting out but functional Linux.
Right now my IW compiler is not working - needs to migrate to 64 bit - what a headach that is.

Info:
Current kernel 4.2.0-38-generic (working on upgrade to 4.4-13')
Includes AUFS so I can make bookable USB.
Has parts of IWB Compiler but not complete.



Over the last few years I have built LFS systems, tux based systems, Debian based systems, Ubuntu based systems, and
several others, all of which has led me to IWLinux.

Will it ever be a noticed distro - most likely not since it built for me, by me.

IWLinux uses EFI boot partition.

Note this - it could cause issues.

Just uploaded new version kernel is 4.6.0.
It does use EFI so be aware that some older BIOS's may not boot it.
