Lunar Linux – an independent (forked from Sorcerer), a source based Linux distribution.

Lunar uses and builds upon the Linux kernel, and offers a unique package management system which builds each software package, or module, from scratch for the machine in which it is being installed.

It makes customization a breeze– you choose the compile options before a module is built, and install a lean and uncluttered system that has exactly what you need. Nothing more, or less.

Once installed, Lunar is remarkably fast, breaking new ground in flexibility and in the options it offers the individual user.

Lunar installs a complete bootstrap development system on your machine. You then tell the Lunar package manager what tools you want, and it builds the entire system by downloading current source code and locally compiling an optimized system tailored toward your specific needs.

Lunar has built in integrity checking and a robust self-repairing capability. It also enables system users to develop their own source-packages using the toolset.
