PeeWeeLinux is an ongoing development effort to provide an environment that makes the configuration and installation of a Linux operating system on an embedded platform as easy and painless as possible.
Here are some key features of "PeeWeeLinux":
Developed on a RedHat 6.2 platform
Packages build and maintained using rpm
Packages are customized to minimize memory footprint
Ncurses driven graphical configuration and installation tools
2.2.x kernel enhanced for embedded applications
The configuration utility is menu driven and allows for complete packages, or a subset of files from packages, to be included in the target system. Target system using syslinux or lilo bootloaders are supported.
Targets can consist of root ramdisks, read-only root partitions and conventional single read-write root partitions. Projects can be saved for later use; thus making it very easy to test several different configurations.
PeeWeeLinux includes a complete and growing assortment of utilities and applications for a variety of products. Custom configuration files and binaries can be added to a project and saved with a project.
Possible applications for systems build with PeeWeeLinux include:
Rescue floppy disks
The PeeWeeLinux kernel sources include a number of important features for embedded applications; like GPL compliant drivers for flash devices, the latest available network drivers, USB and PCMCIA support.
PeeWeeLinux as a whole is distributed under the GPL license. Individual packages and components are licensed per their respective owners.
