Live CD to compile programs

Devel Live CD includes a development toolchain from 4MLinux which makes it possible to compile the Linux kernel and other software written in C and C++.

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

1) Select Installer from the Devel Menu:

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

Now you have the minimum required to compile programs written in C and C++. A big collection of additional development software has been installed, too (enough to compile all programs, which are included in basic version of 4MLinux).

3) You can also download additional "alien" (i.e. not 4MLinux native) packages:

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.


  1. I liked a lot it size initially is from 54MB to 215MB! Nowdays, there are no many active distros with that size and functionallity, just 5 or little more. I liked much that .deb, .rpm and other packages can be used on it. I will give a try. Great job!
    So it is based some way on Fedora?

  2. So, Devel Live CD is the same 4MLinux but with developer programs and libraries?

  3. This blog awesome and i learn a lot about programming from here.The best thing about this blog is that you doing from beginning to experts level.

    Love from
