GENDIST (the Linux Distribution Generator) allows you to easily create your own special distribution. It creates a makefile-based build system for your distribution, and helps you to automate the following three tasks: maintaining your root filesystem, maintaining your "CD filesystem" (in case you create a bootable CD), and packaging everything on media.

Release Notes: Support for media type "Bochs" has been added. This allows you to directly create a bootable Bochs HD image. There is a fix for make 3.80, which breaks GENDIST.
Release Notes: A minor bug in the calculation of blocks-per-group for very large initrds was fixed.
Release Notes: A workaround was implemented for the mke2fs bug/feature, so small initrds with a large number of inodes should work now. A minor bug in the ShellLinux example was fixed: the attributes of shared libraries are now restored after copying them with objcopy.
Release Notes: INSTALL has been added as a template file.
Release Notes: This release adds minor bugfixes and code cleanup.
