As the Pocket Linux Project draws to a close we should take a moment to celebrate all of our accomplishments. Some of the highlights are listed below:
We have built a system, from source code only, that fully implements all of the commands described in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard requirements for a root filesystem.
We have learned how to use Internet resources to locate and download the source code needed to build a GNU/Linux system.
We have written basic system startup and shutdown scripts and configured them to execute in the proper runlevels.
We have included support for multiple users on virtual consoles and implemented permissions on system files.
But most importantly, we have learned some good design techniques and project management skills that will enable us to tackle any future projects with ease and confidence.
