Eagle Linux is distributed in the form of a freely available, open source "how-to" document that covers, in full detail, the creation of a standalone floppy, CD, or embedded Linux image.
"This is fantastic news for embedded device developers" said Michael P. Angelo, author and maintainer of Eagle Linux. "With many companies turning to Linux as an embedded OS solution, there is a growing need for in house and remote embedded Linux training." Eagle Linux provides documentation which covers, in full detail, all steps neccessary to create a Linux distribution in less than 4MB which is fully network capable.
"Eagle Linux is invaluable in assisting instructors in teaching embedded and distribution design methods in Linux" said Angelo. Eagle Linux is also used by companies who wish to create and store structured bootable courseware cirriculi, and as the core for embedded development utility shops. Bootable
CD images which function as specialized dedicated servers, routers, multimedia systems, recovery tool and marketing data disks are also easily created using the Eagle Linux documentation.
"Future versions of Eagle Linux documentation will provide instructions necessary for including GUI capabilities and auto-detection of hardware", said Angelo. When asked of the importance of such a self-created Linux distribution, Angelo replied "Linux has seen a dramatic increase in popularity due, in large part, to its open source nature. Eagle Linux provides, in full open source fashion, an easy to understand means to achieve immediate success in Linux distribution design."
