    Hi @bulentozlem ,

    Many years ago I used Linux From Scratch. It might be a bit complicated, but it's useful in terms of learning: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ .

    I haven't used Yocto, but it's a well known way as well:

    Also there are more ways to achieve it now a days, but I haven't tried them.

    Many regards,

    Linux from scratch is indeed still active and maintained.

    If you want to do something which is not quite by scratch, but you have to boostrap up from a small stage 1, consider Gentoo, where you have to recompile everything from scratch. Installing and setting up is not easy but if you master it you'll know quite a bit :)
