Thank you, Ovens. The fact is my knowledge about the process lacks the
proper sources where to start from, to get to proceed myself. If there are
any suggestions where i could start investigating about it, it would be
I recently started to configure uck (ubuntu customization kit)
distributions through shell interactivity directly, having some issues with
configuration stability. As i understand it, the process has to do mainly
with compiling the sources for the proper processor at "installation time"
by configuring the compiler and the linker to make use of the processor's
configuration, specifically. If there is any known way i can instruct
myself into such matters more profoundly, for instance: how to configure
the compiling process through an script which chooses compiler's
configuration at glance over the system's configuration before the
installation process is done(?). I remember we used to compile from source,
back in the nineties with Red Hat from 4 to 5 adding features at
requirement and i am available for the task myself, the fact is i am "out
of shape" about it and my knowledge about the now-a-days process seem to
change after each distribution version, so i would like to refresh such
knowledge to get in the mood and do it. I thought there would be graphic
ways (GUI) to do the configuration through a front end for the task, in the
uck or something. I just seem to have missed the way at some point.
Sorry if my requirement seemed out of context and outdated.
