Hi, I was just wondering if there is a tutorial or a step by step way to change the name of a os in linux

one to be specific would be Kororaa which is based on a gentoo system

just so that i can give it a better name just for home use

etc, Boot screen, and when in the os, how instead of saying kororaa platform maybe a different name?

Its a kde platform not gnome

I am using Kororaa, that uses a Gentoo Portage System

Can you edit a Linux's Os's name etc instead of Gentoo you can put your own distro name like 123 my os?

can you customize its name to be something different?

Get some framebuffer/bootsplash stuff, edited with your name and logo, edit openrc and change it wherever says Gentoo Linux and so on...

If you want to flag a topic as solved, you need to edit the subject field of the first post in the topic. Technically there are other ways but those are limited to moderators and those able and willing to mess with the database manually.
