11 Hmm, I recall asking if rc3 could have gcc and the kernel source
12 available from the boot cd - I see the kernel source code is in the
13 packages directory, but I think there may have been a
14 mis-communication... I actually meant that gcc be executable from
15 boot.img so that a kernel can be compiled directly from the boot cd
16 (onto ramfs presumably, unless you mount anything else) without having
17 to install anything to a hard disk - I for one would find this very
18 useful, and I'm surprised I haven't seen any other distros do this.
19 Comments please
