Live CD to compile programs

Devel Live CD includes a minimal toolchain from Fedora, which makes it possible to compile the Linux kernel and other software. It has been created to compile programs for 4MLinux.

Note: Devel Live CD boots in the same way as 4MLinux does (this was described here).

2) Confirm the installation by choosing 'y' and pressing Enter:


Now you have the minimum required to compile programs written in C and C++. Revision control software (Git, SVN) and GNU build system (Autoconf, Automake, Libtool) are installed too.

All the file managers, which are included in Devel Live CD (Midnight Commander, Path Finder, and X File Explorer), are able to open rpm, deb, and other archives. Please refer to this post for details.
