“”Building Zeroshell

Zeroshell is not based on an already existing distribution as for example Knoppix is based on Debian. The author has compiled the whole software of which the distribution is composed starting from the source code in the tar.gz or tar.bz2 packets. The compiler gcc and the glibcs of the GNU have been compiled too and have had the so-called phase of bootstrap in which they have recompiled themselves more times. This has been necessary to optimize the compiler and to eliminate every dependence from the glibcs of the system from which the first compilation took place. Some of the initialization scripts, as well as the guidelines followed by the author are those of Linux From Scratch.””
