Kwort is a CRUX-based Linux distribution that uses the GTK+ toolkit and the Openbox window manager. Its most prominent feature is a package manager, called kpkg, for retrieving packages from download mirrors. Kwort is a modern and fast Linux distribution that combines powerful and useful applications in order to create a simple system for advanced users who finds a strong and effective desktop. Kwort is based on CRUX, so it's robust, clean and easy to extend.
NB:- Latest stable version of the software will be delivered.
The Kwort Linux project, which develops a CRUX-based distribution that strives to maintain a minimal operating system, has released an update to its 4.3 series. The new version, Kwort Linux 4.3.1, includes a number of security fixes and improvements to the bootloader installation process. "This is minor fix of Kwort 4.3, involving some security upgrades and some improvements in our bootloaders' installation. If you want to upgrade from Kwort 4.3 to this new release, you can simply run: kpkg update && kpkg upgrade. Our bootloaders' installation has improved significantly as well as the ISO bootup. For bootloaders, we have the traditional bootloader LILO and GRUB2 with and without UEFI support, all of them with LVM support if needed as well. For those wanting to use GRUB2 there's a tool now called kwort-grub-installer that will automatically configure and install the GRUB2 bootloader for you.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 4.3, the latest stable built from the project developing a lightweight, CRUX-based distribution with Openbox and a custom package manager called kpkg: "A new version of Kwort available, this one is 4.3. Get it while it's hot! As always, we remain fast, stable and simple and now we have grown up a little to include a lot of Linux firmware available for tons of devices. As usual, everything has been built cleanly and from scratch. The most significant technical aspects are: Linux kernel 4.1.13; new kpkg version providing exclusion support during upgrades (to avoid upgrading configuration files); Chromium 47.0.2526.69 (beta); the init scripts are more unified now with start-stop-daemon. As usual, we want to thank the people helping the project: the infrastructure providers, the people from PGHosting for the package mirror and development environment in the UNR; the CRUX folks for developing it as it's Kwort's base....".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 4.2, a new version of the project's lightweight distribution with Openbox, no systemd, and a custom package manager called kpkg - all based on CRUX: "As the title says, Kwort Linux 4.2 is out there in the wild. This new version is fast, stable and simple as always and a little bit smaller. Everything has been built from scratch in a clean way from a new toolchain to every X.Org package. Most significant technical aspects are: Linux kernel 3.19.2; Chromium 41.0.2272.76; as usual our system remains light and clean as Kwort users like it; new and improved GUI aspect. As usual, a big thanks to the CRUX people for developing it, as it is the system Kwort is based on; even though Kwort 4.2 isn't based on a CRUX release, their ports system was a key component to build this release. The eudev folks for supporting and approving our patch to make /run to be configurable (Kwort uses /var/run). And of course, the people who develop every project Kwort makes use of.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 4.1, a lightweight CRUX-based distribution with Openbox and a custom package manager called kpkg: "Kwort Linux 4.1 is out. This new version is fast, stable, and simple as always. Everything has been built from scratch in a clean way. Most significant technical aspects are: Linux kernel 3.13.7; Chromium 34.0.1847.132 and Firefox 30.0 are both installed by default; LibreOffice 4.2.2 is also available in more/xapps. As usual our system remains light and clean as Kwort users like it. People and projects I would like to thank: our infrastructure providers, the people from PGHosting and Ricardo Brisighelli for the package mirror and development environment in the UNR. As usual, a big thanks to the CRUX people for developing it, as it is the system Kwort is based on; CRUX 3.1 made this version of Kwort really easy to build.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 4, a lightweight CRUX-based distribution (now for 64-bit systems only) with Openbox and a custom package manager called kpkg: "Kwort Linux 4 is finally here. For those who don't know, Kwort 4 is a full x86_64 system. In the last couple of week we've been testing Kwort 4 hard to see if everything is 'stable-enough'. This new version is actually pretty awesome, fast, stable, and with the simplicity that has always characterized Kwort. Because of the architecture switch, we have everything rebuilt from scratch, from the toolchain to the latest X11 application. And of course, our package mirror is already populated with some useful packages. Now, the most significant technical aspects: Linux kernel 3.8.5; Chromium 25.0.1364.97; Firefox 20.0; LibreOffice 4.0.1.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 3.5, lightweight distribution based on CRUX with a custom package management tool: "Finally Kwort Linux 3.5 has arrived. We have been testing this release for a month and it needed just one public release candidate to get a known bug-free system. Those who installed RC1 can upgrade to the final version with kpkg. In this version our system received a complete update, from the toolchain to the latest X11 applications. This might be the last i686 version as we are planning to move to x86_64 for our next release. We are rolling this release with Linux kernel 3.5.4, the latest stable version of Chromium (Firefox is available on the CD image in more/xapps). The latest LibreOffice is also available on the CD image for you to install with kpkg. Most noticeable changes are in the installer and kpkg, as both got a speed up and also I gave kpkg the ability to upgrade a single package or the whole system.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 3.2, a CRUX-based desktop distribution (with Openbox) designed for intermediate and advanced Linux users: "Almost a year has passed since Kwort's last stable release, and today I'm rolling out a new release of our system. This is a major upgrade of almost every software package included in Kwort 3.14, except the toolchain. The most noticeable changes include: move from OpenOffice.org to LibreOffice; a new kernel 3 series, Firefox 7.0.1 (not installed by default but you can install it from the CD image) and the latest version of Chromium. Other than what's noticeable, there are tons of improvements under the hood, like the inclusion of LVM2 and mdadm for logical volume management and raid support, the ext4 file system supported in the installation and some nice improvements in kpkg.".
David Cortarello has announced the release of Kwort Linux 2.4.1 a Slackware-based distribution with a custom package manager and other system administration utilities: "I'm happy to announce that Kwort 2.4.1 final is here! This version took a year to develop and provides many changes from the 2.4 release, including a new, more cleaned-up base system, whole new tool chain, new configuration tools and lots of new things. New features: Kwort's init system has evolved keeping its simplicity but providing some new features; Linux kernel 188.8.131.52 - a lot of hardware support was included; the new version of kpkg include several new features and the adoption of multi-mirror support; Kwort user manager provides a simple way to create and remove users with a new interface; Kwort network manager allows to configure the network and manage DNS; Xfce 4.6.0....".
