    Hmm... it's been almost two years since I installed Crux so I'm more like a rugu at this point.

    Honestly, I have no idea if your Slackware rc. files will work, or not. I tend to think you might run into issues, but I'm not sure. When I installed Crux I just edited all the files as needed, and it worked. Some of them probably worked with the defaults, but I can't remember exactly how it all went.

    The biggest chore for me was installing packages after the base system install. The no dependency checking hurt a bit, but it was still a fun experience.

    I'm anxious to hear how it goes.

    With Slackware, it at least lets you know what it can't find as far as dependencies go. Does Crux let you know when it can't find something to run an app?

    Yes, I remember it definitely being a very slow process. Good luck with it!

    Am now attempting to get Gnome going. It is a slow process, but I sure am learning a lot. It reminds me of Gentoo with compiling kernels and packages but in my estimation it is noticably faster. (Gentoo users please don't take offense).

    Got IceWM going, albeit barely. Gnome just won't work. I did everything exactly as the directions said and still no joy..

    When I installed CRUX it was with KDE and it worked fine. I'm not sure what's up with Gnome, but I'd think IceWM should be blazingly fast on CRUX.

    I feel like an idiot! I just spent the better part of last night and this morning trying to figure out why my maximise, minimise and restore buttons were just little blank squares in IceWM. I was about to give up when I realised I had no theme chosen! When I did that, the buttons came up!

    ozar I prefer Icewm and with Crux it is really fast! I was trying to get Gnome going as there are a lot of Gnome apps and utilites I like to use and installing Gnome always seems to be the easiest way.

    Crux is like a cross between Gentoo and LFS! I'm having fun and learning a lot!

    X configured and running
    gdm configured and running
    Internet configured
    Nvidia 3d Acceleration going
    IceWM running
    Java and Flash running in Firefox

    Now onward to sound!

    I'm a bit surprised that CRUX isn't more popular than it is. Maybe it's just too geeky for most users but it felt like what I'd expect pure Linux to feel like when I ran it. It is indeed a fun distro to play around with. Glad you are enjoying the ride.
