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...
    ... I'd try to track it down using your old Crux .config and running make oldconfig again ... good luck

    Well, coming to you from my Frankenstein 2.7 CRUXbuntu-IceWM install. That Ubuntu configured kernel took years to compile but I'm surprised there was no noticeable increase in boot up time. Maybe I'll keep it...

    CruxIcebuntu ... why do i feel hungry ... I give you a week before your back in .config knocking bits off .

    Must confess Crux boots on this system in 15 seconds (Arch and Gentoo in about 30 seconds - Gentoo with OpenRC otherwise double it).

    Try hours. I'm already planning out what I'm going to "turn off." Think I'll give it a go tonight.

    Glad to see that you're having some progress there, Dan!

    I haven't really had any time yet to start in on mine... and I know that when i do, I'll be stuck here for more than a few hours getting it going!

    I'm almost completely up on all my apps... about 85% there. Just installed openoffice and compiling wine now. I hope to get everything as I want it and then start trimming this CRUXbuntu kernel back untill I get a lean clean CRUX kernel as it should be.

    By the way, CRUX is now number 10 at Distrowatch!

    elija, remember the "send up" we did on Ubuntu spinoffs?

    It's just occurred to me that the problem could be with udev. Doesn't udev create the /dev directory nowadays? Maybe if the kernel doesn't have the right flags set, udev won't do its job. This is the README that I got with udev in Debian: it might be worth checking that you have these flags set.
