BringABox October 2004

Another successful meeting, but more new members would be welcome! This time Jay planned to show us package management with Crux and Casper gave us a look at Gentoo's way of doing it (called portage). But Jay's box blew up when a PS/2 keyboard was plugged into the running system. Sad for Jay, but a kind of plus for the rest of us, because we got to see Crux installed on a virgin PC. A surprisingly quick process, considering that Crux is compiled from source and this was on a 200MHz PC.
