Also installed all packages rather than just core. Installed to an ext4 partition but when I tried to boot got error saying CONFIG_LBDAF needed to be enabled (went back into kernel config and enabled it and recompiled and the system boots).
enabled contrib and added romster to /etc/prt-get.conf so I now have icewm (han did not seem to work)

Install went smoothly but have run into a real head scratcher.
/dev shows no partitons for sda*. My root partition is /dev/sda7 but it doesn't show up either. fdisk -l returns nothing. I was going to edit fstab to point /home to /sda6 but when I try mounting it, it says it doesn't exist. I'm using the same .config from last CRUX install. All partitions show perfectly in /dev when I boot back in to old CRUX install. Anyone have any ideas?
What driver are you using in your new kernel? You need to use PATA/SATA to get sda names. With the old ATA driver you get hda."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
/var/log/boot shows the other partitions are seen as sda* but none of them show up in /dev. I even powered on my external hard drive after booting 2.7 and it found its partitions and showed them in /dev.
I'm going to re-install to see if I run into the same problem again. Thank you for your input.
I have hda and sda with IDE and genuine sata so my config is a little different.

installed openoffice straightforward using prt-get depinst openoffice
for claws-mail ended up downloading from Download libEtPan! - a mail library from SourceForge.net
and copying into /usr/ports/contrib/libetpan as prt-get depinst claws-mail failed to download the file
also gnupg failed to build (footprint failed - error message) ... which is where I am up to at the moment ... I'll get round to sorting that later ...
btw - had a quick look through my boot log and no mention of raid ... not sure if that helps
This is so weird. I did a complete re-install and still, my partitions do not show up in /dev but partitions on external drive do. There must be something different in the kernel that needs adjusting but I'm at a loss to know at this point.

@ Jonathan183, you can use the "ignore footprint" option to get around it...
prt-get depinst -if gnupg
Well, I did something crazy. I borrowed the .config from an Ubuntu 10.04 box and used it to compile the kernel in CRUX. Even though I have a very bloated kernel for my system, my partitions are at least showing up in /dev. Now I know my problem has to do with kernel configuration so I must figure out what the difference is and turn that part of it on or off...
