Guess I'll start gutting after the Fourth!
Ever start getting started?
Have a moc (not Mok) daemon on to the rPi connected to the TV rig which is set with the ODAC + HR624, equalized with JAMin. Sounds great. Could go to a floorstanding (Image T6), or keep the bookshelf stands, go with a LS50. But really the living room is small enough that the Mackies sound absolutely fine. But what I could do that would be relatively reasonable is move the rPi to a NUC. Would definitely appreciate the horsepower.
morpheus - a suckless distro
It recommends building on a Crux rootfs. That is convenient in that I've just been moving all of the Arch machines (3), apart from one, to Crux. That was a decision I made as I realized a majority of the things I used came from the -git packages on the AUR, or just tweaked PKGBUILDs from the ABS. These packages became very tiring to update manually all of the time. I've had my time with Gentoo/Exherbo, and while I could have moved these last couple of Linux machines to a flavor of BSD, I'd still prefer to have a Linux distro in house for the occasionally weird peripheral coming in. This having occurred a few weeks before the LAS folks did their review on Crux, just cemented my decision even more. It's like they have ESP. Probably found the esp-svn package on the AUR or something.
Back to morpheus. Would have plenty of hosts to build it on. Have not played around with musl much, ever since all of the Alpine machines had been migrated to OpenBSD. If/when this gets usable enough I might be set for a while. musl, s/ubase, smdev, a very cool ports system; it's everything my self-made Exherbo setup was, and I don't have to mess with exhereses!
In fact just taking a look at it, the way that they packaged the heirloom stuff into hbase so nicely, harkens back to my woes linking heirloom stuff with busybox stuff to make up for the functionality/missing utils. Already this shows more and more promise. I wonder how fast I can get a fbterm + tmux setup on there.
I'd still like to move a machine to Void in case I need something binary, fast, but still retaining a good level of flexibility. Perhaps the incoming workstation, but I'd sort of want to stay with Crux on that one as well.
