Thread: How to install CRUX

Took me a while thought to figure out how to extract the old file to insert the new libgmp#4.2.4-1h.pkg.tar.gz into the .iso file! What a brain-buster!
In case anybody is curious, I used a little program called isomaster to move the files around. The hard part was actually finding an easy to use program like this!
I think I'm going to try installing CRUX. Should I wait for 2.5, or do you think its safe to install 2.4? Also, I'm confused on the concept of ports. How exactly do they work?
Nice tutorial, by the way. Gonna keep it on hand when I install, along with the CRUX manual. Thanks!
I had another thread going on that deals with my installation issues, found here. Dan gives a pretty good explanation of ports in there as well.
Two quick things here...
First...CRUX 2.5 RC1 is now loaded on my box! I'll have to Google around for a little while to figure out how to get it to boot from an extended partition (already found a few links), just not gonna mess with it right now. But I'll post to let you guys know what's going on woth it.
Dapper Dan, your the man! Just wanted to thank you for this excellent walk-through.. I feel so grown up installing CRUX and compiling my baby kernel..“Things derive their being and nature by mutual dependence and are nothing in themselves.”
