Impact Linux


Rob Landley has been a geek since childhood, a Linux geek since 1998, and an embedded Linux geek since 2001. (This is because he breaks everything, and likes reducing the complexity in his system so there are less layers to drill through when debugging it.) He no longer maintains BusyBox, or his own fork of tinycc, but does still maintain Firmware Linux. He knits chain mail, co-founded two combination science fiction convention/Linux expos, has more cats than are strictly necessary, and sometimes refers to himself in the third person when writing biography entries.

* Gentoo From Scratch

This talk is about decoupling package management systems from build environments, making the decisions "what to build" and "how to build" orthogonal.
