Quote from: burnme on April 26, 2012, 07:10:23 AMHad a couple more questions if you have the time to lend your expertise. First and foremost, if I am wanting to deploy an application with plop, is there a particular distro I should be picking packages for? OR is it going to be a requirement, or maybe for compatibility sake, you have to compile the app from source on the plop developers version.

Something that if it was written to a disk and then used to boot it would be like we are using the same system you use to deploy plop? Or is it just a folder system we are to drop into another running linux and use its binutils and such to build out the plop disto. I know I sound like a noob, but I am having trouble getting my head around it.

I don't want a desktop, or a window management system, in essence giving me an operating system I can drop whatever kind of system I want into it and that is what it does, custom and specific.
