    Wink Another cruxer here


    Been reading around now about this Crux distro just a few Qs about it iam going to move away from arch as at times i feel i make my system unstable ..

    Whats your views on using crux as a day to day desktop for /music/movies/email/net usage is what it will be for.

    has it network from startup as i what i do is from a live system modify the files that need modifying first then i can wget them on to system. if anyone could provide a list of those files that would be great and how to setup network after compiling my kernel thanks in advance for any help

    Hello and Welcome!

    CRUX is a great distro, and works wonders for anything you need it to do. I ran it quite happily and used it for all the same things that you mentioned (music, movies, etc...)
    Fast and stable, all the way.
    It has almost nothing enabled after installation, though. It's minimalistic and expects the user to get everything up and running.
    Take a look at the CRUX handbook. It has everything you need to get setup.

    I adore Crux. It's the fastest-booting Linux around, even on old iron. It comes with a dhcp client, so if your router can act as a dhcp server (and most of them can), you have networking straight away.
