  • If you want to build a small Linux, you should probably not start with Kali — it's a space hog. – Scott Aug 30 '15 at 10:28

Are you talking about the archive? Having a big archive is generally good; lots of packages available.

Or are you asking about the disk usage of a default install? You should be able to do a minimal install that uses less than 2GB, but it's been ages since I looked at debian-installer. You may still be able to preseed the installer with a package selection of your choice, to get a minimal system plus whatever you actually want.

  • debian.org/distrib now you tell me which one i should install to make a distro – lokender singh Aug 30 '15 at 7:14
  • @lordkalki: I still have no clue what you're actually asking or looking for. Otherwise I would certainly comply with your demand to give you an answer. – Peter Cordes Aug 30 '15 at 8:57
