What is EzBuild?

EzBuild is a release building metatool used by reGen2 Linux that allows developers to synchronize Portage tree with Gentoo, as well as, to build custom reGen2 releases and templates. It is designed to interface with a package manager, so that users can easily build their own releases of reGen2 Linux or other Linux based operating systems.

EzBuild is capable of:

  • building installation stages
  • building bootable LiveCD/DVD/USB
  • building custom Portage trees

From a developer perspective, you can view EzBuild as a complete redesign of Gentoo’s Catalyst and Funtoo’s Metro tools - deriving they strengths and addressing they weaknesses.
