Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:

Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.

Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.

With even the documentation licensed as FDL.

Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.

Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.

No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).

Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.

Can heal broken installs.

Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book

Bash hackers welcome! Come and join http://sourcemage.org/

Installing SMGL is easy, here's the simplified process:

>boot a live Ubuntu (or whatever) USB drive

>go to SMGL website and download compressed archive of the base system

>partition and mount partition(s)

>extract the archive onto the new partition(s)

>chroot, set root passwd, hostname, configure network and locale, write fstab, install grub/lilo

>reboot

>compile a kernel (preferably the newest stable one from kernel.org)

>update sorcery, grimoires and the build toolchain

>rebuild the system (hold spells you've already built, so you don't build them twice)

The install guide will hold your hand through the whole process http://sourcemage.org/Install/Chroot

Do the chroot method, since the regular live ISO method guide is out of date currently.

Here's a list of common commands: https://pastebin.com/i4DALaNV

i think its more like you have to be a wizard to install it to begin with


 No.487

I really considered this, and also Void, but since I'm going to be travelling I think I'm going to have to do Debian with OpenRC init system for my thinkpad for now, and compile Void, FreeBSD and others in VMs until I really get the hang of it / settle down, then I'll try this.
