Product Description

CRUX is a lightweight, i686-optimized Linux distribution 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. CRUX also has a ports system which makes it easy to install and upgrade applications.

The primary goal of CRUX is to build a streamlined distribution, targeted at a specific audience which in turn gets a system without compromises. Some of the characteristics of CRUX are:

  • "Keep It Simple" concept is applied to both the system and the development process
  • Source based package installation using a ports system
  • Simplicity over automation
  • Targetted at experienced users with compact, to the point documentation
  • Native configurations over configuration abstraction layers (think: sysconfig)
  • Slim, stripped of unneeded documentation and files (only supports the native language the programs were written in)
  • Up to date features and packages, however no bleeding edge software in the main repositories
  • Easy way to extend the system yourself
  • Active community of contributors outside the core development team
