Smallest linux kernel

You can find the latest tinification changes in Josh Triplett's tree at, in the tiny/* branches. Note that tiny/next gets reset for each new merge window, and other tiny/* branches may be recreated or rebased. uClinux is incredibly tight - it's officially a Linux but as it's targeted at microprocessors with no MMU it doesn't have process isolation like traditional Linux does. I wish I had numbers for you in terms of size, but I don't. It's really small. A kernel is the core part of the operating system. In Linux you can compile your own kernel from source codes. It's not that complicated. I did it.

I'm just starting out with linux and have been given a challenge to compile the smallest possible linux kernel under 10MB that will run in. Minimal Linux Live offers a core environment with just the Linux kernel, GNU C library and BusyBox userland utilities. Linux Plumbers Conference Tiny flash part (MB or smaller) for kernel and userspace . Linux could still go an order of magnitude smaller, at least.

Hi guys, i wanna ask you for help to compile a very tiny kernel. I'm currently having a task at school that dictates that I must compile a kernel. The goal of the linux-tiny project is to reduce the memory and disk footprint of the mainstream Linux kernel, as well as to add features to aid working on small systems. Target users are developers of embedded system and users of small or legacy machines such as s and handheld devices. It starts with a recent Linux kernel, vmlinuz, and our root filesystem and start-up scripts packaged with a basic set of kernel modules in Core (11MB) is. Instead of running make allmodconfig, you could just make sure you've loaded all the modules you need (i.e. plug in everything you might.
