At the moment, Bent Linux consists of:
- the bpm package manager, very very simple, turns spec files that
tar xzf bash-2.05b.tar.gz
CFLAGS=-Os ./configure --enable-static-link --enable-readline --with-installed-readline \
--prefix=/ --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info \
make prefix=$BPM_ROOT mandir=$BPM_ROOT/usr/share/man \
ln -s bash $BPM_ROOT/bin/sh
rm -f $BPM_ROOT/usr/share/info/dir
into cpio.bz2 files ready to install.
- bpms for bpm itself, ogdlutils, which bpm requires, uClibc,
Busybox, the full dev chain (gcc, binutils, ...) and everything
else I've wanted
Installing involves using _somthing_ --- any Linux live-CD would
be spiffy --- to partition the disk, unpack the bpms you want. A
kernel, busybox, and a bootloader (I've bpm-ed lilo) suffices to get
things cooking. Finally install the bootloader (e.g. run lilo) and
Bent is read to rock. Bent is LFS-inspired, but uses uClibc and
static linking, so it's definitely a varient distro.

Nope, many Linux installations run happily out of RAM alone, and
some (Bent is among them) run fine out of a pure initrd.

Monitor? What monitor? Some of my Bent linux installs run with a
It's a lot handier if you have _some_ kind of console, but Linux
isn't picky about it.
