- An embedded Linux distribution aimed at helping users learn Linux by creating bootable Linux images "virtually from scratch". Eagle Linux 2.3 is currently distributed as a concise, 26-page PDF documenting the creation of a minimalist, network-ready Linux image for bootable CDs, floppies, or flash drives. See description at: http://ct.enews.deviceforge.com/rd/cts?d=207-106-2-28-5560-8662-0-0-0-1
- uClinux A distribution targeting at systems without Memory Management Unit. See also UClinux Shared Library.

- Open Embedded - System for building full embedded images from scratch
- Buildroot is a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy generate a cross-compilation toolchain and root filesystem for your target Linux system using the uClibc C library.
- Linux From Scratch
- Qplus Target Builder - Target image builder from ETRI
