OH Arch:

Support for i686 will cease in November 2017. Yes, I have a netbook. :-/ This was a trigger to start a new Linux distributions tries considering:

  • Go development
  • Docker
  • Emacs
  • Stumpwm
  • Conkeror
  • Google chrome and Chromium
  • 386 and amd64
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to keep
  • Easy hacking
  • Packages available
  • Last version applications(bleeding on the edge)
  • etc...

Then I found Void Linux.

Void is a general purpose operating system, based on the monolithic Linux® kernel. Its package system allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection.

It is available for the Intel x86®, ARM® and MIPS® processor architectures; Software packages can be built natively or cross compiling through the XBPS source packages collection.
Void Linux

The installation is very easy by following the void-installer and posts at Void Linux Wiki. After the OS base installed, my configurations are installed by dotfiles.org.

I will, post how to do that in the next post. For now:
