Carbs Linux - a simple busybox linux distribution
Carbs Linux is an in-development Linux® distribution with a suckless mindset. The base system will consist of only the necessary programs to create a Linux distribution.
Carbs Linux uses its own fork of the kiss package manager which is an extremely flexible package manager.
By default, Carbs Linux comes with busybox for coreutils, and basic utilities for building new software. The rootfs tarball is not bigger than 40MB.
Carbs Linux has support for multiple init systems and service supervisors. In the main repository are
for init systems, and
for service supervisors. The carbs-init package is the collection of init scripts that ensure the interoperatability of these init and service systems, and make it easier for the user to switch to their preferred combinations of system supervision.
Nothing holds you back, however, from ditching any of these and packaging some other system supervision technique along with your own init scripts.
