Custom Debian Distributions

Adapting Debian GNU/Linux to special fields

Asia Debian Mini-Conf, 1. March 2005


Custom Debian Distributions are the way how Debian wants to support special user interests. For instance special users might be children, lawyers, medical stuff, visually impaired people or even users who need adaptations to special internationalisation support. In the last year several new Custom Debian Distributions evolved. The goal of all these is to make installation and administration of computers for these target users as easy as possible.

The talk will give an overview about existing Custom Debian Distributions, which tools they use and how to create new ones while staying always inside the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
