Chiming in to add that I don't normally click on random proffered URLs
because I've fallen into so many (time wasting) traps over the years..

BUT I did click on this one since it's Youtube..

It's Linux Foundation, y'all, so it's very worth a peek. This is the
description when you get there:

"Tutorial: Building the Simplest Possible Linux System - Rob Landley,

This tutorial walks you through building and booting the simplest
possible Linux system, first under QEMU and then on real hardware. We
cover kernel configuration and building, native vs cross compiling,
initramfs creation (and other root filesystem options), installing and
booting, the init process and system bringup, running an app, adding
an example server (sshd), and finally we'll add a native toolchain to
compile "hello world" on the target.

Apparently... if you've ever helped generate 10 million+ views for a
video of something about liquid nitrogen and a swimming pool, you've
already met the author.

Thanks for that share, Aruna. I'll be playing over there after
Gibson's Night of 100 Guitars is done (again), lol!
