Last week, we announced one of our newest course offerings, Build Your Own Linux… from Scratch. This course includes an 115-page PDF booklet detailing the process of building a basic Linux distro from the ground-up, alongside Linux Academy’s normal video lessons. But we decided we liked the book so much, we wanted everyone to have it. So we made it a website and released it for free.
BuildYourOwnLinux.com takes all the written copy from the Build Your Own Linux course and offers it to anyone interested in learning about how Linux distros go from simple Linux kernel to useable servers. From preparing your workspace to downloading and configuring needed packages, the course — and website — aims to give you a deeper understanding of Linux and how distros are made. And you don’t even need a Linux Academy account!
Of course, if you come across any issues or have any questions while building your very own Linux, we’re still here to help. Sign up for our free community to chat with thousands of industry professionals and students just like you.
So what are you waiting for? Open up your terminal and get building!
