Grux or Arch, which one to choose?

Since Arch originated from Grux, then Grux must have something in it. I am wondering whether Arch is a Grux improved version or different from Grux somewhere.

Anyone used Grux before? What are their difference? or just "same difference"?

Re: Grux or Arch, which one to choose?

I'm not sure that Arch originated from Crux but there are definitely similarities...
both use devfs, both have a package manager and a ports-type system. In Arch you don't necessarily need to build packages as they are available via pacman, in crux there aren't so many packages so you need to build a lot more of your own. The Crux ports system is much like ABS in that you sync with a 'tree' and then build packages to install via the package manager. Crux also uses rc.conf from where you can load modules and start daemons, etc.
Both are lightweight and very well-organised - I personally don't see a hell of a lot of difference, but crux seems to require more input and setting-up than Arch would. The people on IRC are very helpful, but of course nothing like the Arch community!

Sarah31 likes Crux better, what more can I say? wink

I understand that the package managment system for Crux is more community driven and thus less standardized. No doubt Sarah will tell me I'm wrong.

Arch *is* indeed based on Crux.
