About Lunar Linux

Lunar Linux is a source based Linux distribution. It is built entirely by compiling source code, using custom optimizations.

It installs a complete bootstrap development system first. After telling the Lunar package manager which software will be required, it builds the entire system by downloading current source code and locally compiling an optimized system tailored toward the users specific needs. This should result in a lean and optimized operating system. On the downside, compiling a whole distribution from scratch may be time-consuming and complicate the task of keeping the packages up to date.

Currently, Lunar only supports the x86 and x86-64 architectures, but support for Sparc, PPC, and Alpha is being worked on.

Lunar Linux is licensed under the GPLv2.
