Did you know Buildroot? It's a collection of scripts that generates tiny images ~10 MiB sized:


According to the official documentation:

"Buildroot is able to generate a cross-compilation toolchain, a root
filesystem, a Linux kernel image and a bootloader for your target.
Buildroot can be used for any combination of these options,
independently (you can for example use an existing cross-compilation
toolchain, and build only your root filesystem with Buildroot)."
