LFS has been tempting more than once but i figured if i have to go back that far into DYI land might as well just jump ship entirely.

I suspect Debian itself will end up crumbling under the weight of its

own political overload.

It's got a lot of political overload these days, and I'm concerned about it too. Then again, there are way too many open source projects that have a "code of conduct" bullied into them by some talentless hack like Corey Ehmke because Silicon Valley still exists even though it needs to be burned to the ground.

Nevertheless, at this point you still can't get much more "base Linux" than Debian unless you get into hack-it-yourself distributions.

If you want to go source based, there is always Gentoo. The downside is that it is time consuming and you need a good bunch of bandwidth to get it going, but in the end you'll get something that works as you intend it to work.


I don't buy the idea that learning Gentoo = learning Linux, though, because what you end up learning with Gentoo is mostly their build system and port management.

There is also Funtoo, which comes with presets aimed at bringing up the common graphical environments up more reliabily than Gentoo. I have never tried it.


By the way, do you haveany strong opinions about Void? It looks like the sort of thing a Slackwar user who wanted a rolling distribution would use.

Right, that is the trouble with roll your own. Especially keeping on top of security issues.

Myself, never heard of it. 

But as it says, there are trillions of distributions out there.

Oh, 'enter the void' ( methadone skies ) is a pretty good album too, if you are into that sort of music.  ( ya, a bit OT but their page is labeled 'enter the void' so its my first thought :) )
