Building off of debian?

Postby Yōkai » 2013-02-11 07:42

Hi, I'm planning on building my own distro based off of Debian, seeing as a lot of the popular distros are based off Debian. My distro will, like my username, be called "Yōkai", the japanese name for anything paranormal. Where would I start on this? Also, if I posted this on the wrong board, sorry in advance.

Don't know much because I've never done it before. But maybe these will help:

Distros like gNewSense and Trisquel use their own scripts for creating Ubuntu-based distros (example). gNewSense 3.0 (Squeeze-based) will use their own debderiver script.
