CRUX 3.2 Released

The CRUX team announced release of CRUX 3.2, latest stable release of a lightweight GNU/Linux distribution targeting experienced Linux users. The primary focus of this distribution is keeping it simple, which is reflected in a straightforward tar.gz-based package system, BSD-style initscripts, and a relatively small collection of trimmed packages.

As per official release notes of CRUX 3.2, following are some important notes regarding this release.
  • dash is used instead of bash for the /bin/sh symlink now. Note that bash is still a strong requirement because most of our tools like pkgmk, ports etc. are bash scripts
  • glibc locales will need to be regenerated. See section "Generating locales"
  • support for tcp_wrappers has been removed
    • opt/dovecot may be runtime-configured to use tcpwrap. Check your config
  • new location for the man-pages is /usr/share/man which is the FSH standard since many years.
  • to improve and standardize the rc scripts a helper-program start-stop-daemon has been included to the core port-collection
  • firefox has been prepared for html5 video via the gstreamer framework, which adds gstreamer and gst-plugins-base to the dependency list
  • firefox now uses the gtk3 toolkit instead of gtk2.
  • wpa_supplicant has gained support for dbus.
  • support for curl has been added to pkgmk in addition to wget. Default is still wget but can be configured in pkgmk.conf.
  • license files have been added to our official port repositories.
