Build from scratch

Postby vli02 » 2017/10/24 23:26:28

I am trying to build CentOS 6 from scratch for my own appliance project.
Can anyone please provide me a procedure for getting the source code including kernel and kind of a minimal set of packages?
Thanks!

All CentOS 6 source packages are on vault.centos.org
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

You might want to look at some of the meta-distribution projects or something more tailored to an appliance.

And building an entire distro that has gone into critical-security-updates-only mode seems unwise.
