Adélie Linux – work in progress

 

https://www.adelielinux.org/ I’d like to draw your attention to a young and promising project called Adélie Linux.  Adélie Linux is a Free, Libre operating system based on the Linux kernel. Their goals of full POSIX® compliance, built on musl compatibility with a wide variety of computers, and ease of use without sacrificing features set them apart from most other Linux distributions.  Sysvinit, openrc, and S6 are available to customize your installation to specific needs.  Adélie Linux is also independent and built from the ground up, not based on major distributions (Arch, Debian), or Gentoo, or Alpine, as some will immaturely conclude.

Download 1.0-BETA1

Edit Dec 22 2018 – Adelie 1.0-beta2 is now available and possibly the last step before the first stable Adelie 1 is released.  https://www.adelielinux.org/announcements/1.0-BETA2.html

Void musl – how does it compare with glibc

After our previous week’s test of Alpine linux and the impression of its simplicity and high speed, we decided to give a group test on the Void linux with musl.  We used the LXDE edition of the installation image and did a trial run on VirtualBox.  It was a first shot try and success.  We then started modifying and installing various packages to see if “any” would have any problems running on musl instead of glibc.  Note that the musl repositories are specific to musl and separate, as far as we can tell, from the glibc repositories.

Alpine linux hardened openbox and xfce4 tested

The image selection for installing or using live is a little confusing.  It is confusing as there is standard. extended, vanilla, virtual, xen, and mini-root filesystem.  I used extended and that was a little more than 342MB, the rest are about 100MB or less.  By current trends that is confusingly small.
