Arch Linux Vs Crux Vs Slackware
For the last 5 years I've been using Gentoo as my main OS, however recently portage doesn't seem to want to install anything.. major issues with installing libreoffice (libreoffice-bin installs fine) I'm not the only one with issues and I loved gentoo because of the Cflags and Useflags.. But it's unusable at the moment and I can't just wait for it to be fixed.
So, I basically have it narrowed down to Arch, Crux, and Slackware linux. Crux and Slackware install software from source but don't know if they contain Cflags and Useflags..
I like arch as it's easy to install, an LVM+Luks setup takes about 10 minutes to install along with base and grub2 using pacstrap. I have never installed slack or crux,
I'm leaning towards crux because it's like arch just a bit more stable but I believe I can still get the same package version. I like slackware because of it's age, I don't like that it's a 2GB download, slack needs a minimal or net install...
Now I've been using Linux since the early 2000s and never had issues with installing, but crux really doesn't have a decent wiki to go by unless there's an install.txt file with the iso.
