Tips for installing Crux - GNU/Linux
tudurom
Hey There,

I want to move from arch because of systemd and because I want to put myself in great pain so at the end I will feel good because there will be no pain (i.e, making the system simpler). But, I need help to install crux the right way.

Here's what I have done in a VM:
  • Installed the base system by following the handbook
  • Configured the ports system to build packages using another user
  • Currently doing a sysup.

I want a simple and stable setup, able to run bspwm and some browser.

Oh, and a simple question: if I want to replace the default rc script, I just need to overwrite it with another (minirc), right?

Thank you! Waiting for the tips!

Um, what's the point of this thread? Sounds like you're already there.

no that varies with init to init. by default crux uses sysv init, which is just a collection of many shell scripts that do specific tasks (including daemon scripts). so, you'll need to resort to documentation for that.

so really you just gotta do like
Code:
prt-get depinst bspwm
prt-get depinst $BROWSER
and then ur good i guess. be sure to
Code:
ports -u
prt-get sysup
periodically.

Thanks! No downsides? I find the documentation sparse.

I highly recommend using another rc script. I'm using sinit and my own. CRUX rc is a pain in the ass sometimes.

minirc uses busybox init, so you'll have to remove sysvinit and install busybox and minirc (all available in 6c37). bspwm is also available in 6c37.

I installed 6c37 and 6c37-git and this is a real goldmine! BTW what's the difference beetween your rc and minirc?

my rc uses sinit and has a few changes in terms of coding style, as well as features which i deemed useful
