romster always had the best ports for some of my apps. IceWM included. Keep us posted, Jonathan!...

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.

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...

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...
