2019-06-12 NEWDistribution Release: CRUX 3.5
Matt Housh has announced the release of CRUX 3.5, a new stable version of the project’s lightweight, x86-64 optimised Linux distribution featuring a simple tar.gz-based package system, BSD-style init scripts, and a small collection of trimmed packages: “The CRUX team is happy to announce the release of CRUX 3.5. Notable changes include glibc 2.28, GCC 8.3.0 and Binutils 2.32. CRUX 3.5 now also ships with PAM – we’ve made it as transparent as possible and it will be a good stepping stone for users wanting 2-factor authentication and other fun stuff. Breaking changes include the move of dbus configuration from /usr/etc to /etc, so backup your configurations before updating. Another potential headache may be various projects’ move from autotools to newer build systems – glib may cause some problems here and dependent ports will need to be rebuilt. The ISO image is processed with isohybrid and is suitable for burning on a CD and putting on a USB drive. UEFI support is available during installation with dosfstools, efibootmgr and grub2-efi added to the ISO image.” See the release announcement, release notes and changelog for more information. The updated CRUX Handbook with detailed installation and configuration instructions is also available. Download link: crux-3.5.iso (644MB, MD5, torrent, pkglist).
About CRUX
CRUX is a lightweight, Linux distribution for computers running on 64-bit x86 and ARM processors. The distribution is targeted at experienced Linux users. The primary focus of this distribution is “keep it simple”, which is reflected in a simple 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.

Juergen Daubert has announced the release of CRUX 3.0, a lightweight, x86-64 optimised Linux distribution targeted at experienced Linux users: “More than 11 years after the release of CRUX 0.5 for i686, CRUX 3.0 is the first release for the x86-64 architecture. At the time Per Liden had created CRUX, the i686 processor on base of the 32-bit Intel IA-32 architecture was state-of-the-art and therefore chosen by him as the default optimization for CRUX. But nowadays the i686 architecture is more or less obsolete, at least for desktop machines, and superseded by the x86-64 architecture. Toolchain updates: CRUX 3.0 comes with a multilib toolchain which includes glibc 2.16.0, GCC 4.7.2 and Binutils 2.23.1. Kernel: Linux 3.6.11. CRUX 3.0 ships with X.Org 7.7 and X.Org Server 1.13.0.” Read the release notes for additional important notes. Download: crux-3.0.iso (251MB, MD5, torrent).

Juergen Daubert has announced the availability of the first release candidate for CRUX 3.0, a keep-it-simple Linux distribution designed for more advanced Linux users: “The CRUX team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the upcoming CRUX 3.0. More than 11 years after the release of CRUX 0.5 for i686, CRUX 3.0 will be the first release for the x86_64 architecture. We do not have release notes yet, so some notes below: an update from 2.8 i686 to 3.0 is possible but you have to rebuild all installed packages that are not part of the ISO image – we will continue to update the CRUX 2.8 repositories for the near future but encourage all users to update to 3.0; a 32-bit compatibility ports tree is available but not enabled by default; enable CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION in your kernel configuration, without that option you are not able to build 32bit stuff, even a chroot into a 32bit system, e.g. CRUX 2.8, is not possible without it! Please give it a try and report any issues!” Here is the brief release announcement. Download: crux-3.0-rc1.iso (252MB, MD5).
