Linux Mobile System : bootable from USB Flash Memory Drives.

Linux Mobile System is a full Linux system whose support is the new USB Flash Memory Drives.

The intention is to boot any PC with USB support with our system and therefore we will have every administration and analysis applications that we have selected, so we will not need install it.

This way, always we will be able to get our Linux system ready to use in our pocket.This project arose with the intention to study the Linux system of exhaustive way and simultaneously enjoy with it.

The initial idea is to fuse two separated disciplines: the programming and the systems management. So we’ll center our study in the denominated “system programming”, as much networking level as at device level (drivers).

Main objectives of the project are the following ones:

  • To initiate our Linux system from new memories flash USB.

  • The system will be a selection of common GNU tools in every system: disk diagnosis, memory, hardware, networks monitoring tools, etc.

  • As far as possible we’ll develop new tools and/or utilities with the objective to study deeply the underlying technology.

  • The programming languages used will be C, C++, Python and Perl, without forget the system shell scripts.

  • The resources minimization (disk space, memory…) isn’t a functional objective of the developments.
