GoboLinux

Image
Earliest Compatible Linux Kernel
2.4.18
Specifications
An LFS-based Linux distribution that uses a modified hierarchy. All programs are listed something like /Programs/Foo/1.0/ while the kernel and other critical packages are listed under /System. Comes as a LiveCD with an installer on disc. Tools exist for easy porting, and for LiveCD generation.
Tips to Use
Most packages needed by an everyday user can be installed via Compile. This is a command line package. InstallPackage can be faster but fewer packages are available as pre-compiled binaries. Gentoo's Portage has been ported to GoboLinux if something cannot be found in the normal repositories.
