  • Supports i386, x86_64, arm, mips, powerpc
  • Uses lightweight replacements for netlink, pkg-config and gettext
  • Optimized for build speed and small binary size
  • Per-Package directories following stow/gobolinux spirit
  • bootstrap-linux. Consists only of a minimal set of packages that can be crosscompiled. kernel, toolchain, busybox.
  • LightCube OS For now there are only scripts to bootstrap a working environment with musl. This environment will be used to build out a full server-centric distribution with a centralized package repository.
  • Snowflake
  • Includes only of a minimal set of packages that can be crosscompiled. (Kernel, toolchain, busybox, gawk, make and sed)
