Frugalware Let's make things frugal!
En Fr Es It

Frugalware is a general purpose linux distribution, designed for intermediate users (who are not afraid of text mode).

We try to make Frugalware as simple as possible while not forgetting to keep it comfortable for the user. We try to ship fresh and stable software, as close to the original source as possible, because in our opinion most software is the best as is, and doesn't need patching.

2018-02-18 - Posted by DeX77

To mitigate the known vulnerabilities Spectre v1-v3 we bumped gcc to version 7.3 and enabled some hardening compile flags als also bumped the whole toolchain glibc to version 2.27, binutils to version 2.30 and all major languages. Ffmpeg bumped to 3.4.x and the Linux kernel to version 4.15.4. That lead to a mass rebuild of all packages. While at it we did the long overdue switch from MySQL do MariaDB and from libjpeg to libjpeg-turbo. Please be patient while the merge is running, as you might break everything if you update in the middle.
