Welcome to Venom Linux

Venom Linux is a lightweight source-based Linux® distribution for the x86-64 architecture and targeted experienced users. This distro is built from scratch independently then grown to make it suitable for daily use. This distro is inspired by CRUX because of its simplicity and KISS philosophy.

Venom Linux uses runit as main init and a BSD-like ports system for packages. Packages are managed by its own package manager, called scratchpkg, that has dependency checking and is fully written in POSIX sh.
