Default Crux Linux - BSD style rc.d init and ports

Distrowatch announced a release of Crux linux which I installed on an old Intel Atom D510D. The D510D had been running NetBSD 8.1. NetBSD 8.1 worked well but pkgsrc is currently very buggy.

Crux Linux

Quote:
CRUX is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users. The primary focus of this distribution is keep it simple, which is reflected in a straightforward tar.gz-based package system, BSD-style initscripts, and a relatively small collection of trimmed packages. The secondary focus is utilization of new Linux features and recent tools and libraries. CRUX also has a ports system which makes it easy to install and upgrade applications.

Current release is 3.5.
There is no installer: fdisk -> mkfs -> mount -> install base packages and linux source -> chroot -> build kernel -> install/configure bootloader -> reboot ->finish system config -> config ports and build ports.

The ports system is original and draws elements from Arch linux and Slackware. There are about 4800 ports which, at this point in time, seem to build/run with significantly fewer bugs than NetBSD ports.
