To read if you have an ATI/Radeon or a Nvidia Optimus Graphics card
On one of my laptops with an ATI card, I could easily run CruxEX 3.6.1 from a USB stick. When the system was installed to the hard drive, however, X did not start. (Error: vesa: Ignoring device with a bound kernel). I could only solve this through the following commands/measures in console mode:
1. ports -u
2. prt-get remove xorg-xf86-video-ati xorg-xf86-video-vesa
3. Finally, I created this xorg.conf file and put the same in /etc/X11. Then X started up nicely!
The same thing happened when I tried to run CruxEX version 201223 on a laptop with a Nvidia Optimus Graphic card.
NOTE: In CruxEX version 201223 you just have to follow my advice 3. I.e. put my xorg.conf file in /etc/X11.

CruxEX 3.6.1 64bit Linux

 

Install CruxEX to hard disk
CruxEX can be installed to the hard drive in live mode, which can be expected to be perceived as positive by some. CRUX - the original system - contains neither Xfce, Fluxbox, Gnome, KDE, LXDE, or any other Desktop environment. Please read my INSTALL Instructions. While installing CruxEX 3.6.1 to hard disk you can install Grub2 as startup manager.

Install CruxEX 3.6.1 USB to a USB Pen Drive
Please read my INSTRUCTION for CruxEX 3.6.1. It can be done in Windows (very easy) and in Linux. It's a bit complicated to do it in Linux, but it can be done.

Login to LXDE
Log in from Slim Login Manager as the ordinary user live or as root with password live/root. While logged in as root you won't have sound. While logged in as live you can use Sudo to become root. Example command: sudo pcmanfm. Problems with X? Please read my advices below in the left column. 

Wireless connections
Use NetworkManager/NetworkManager Applet to configure wireless connections. Give your WEP/WAP password and connect. That's it! Maybe you will have  to disconnect and reconnect. (Just click on the applet icon in the menu bar to the right).

Run CruxEX in VirtualBox in Windows
Once you have installed CruxEX to a USB stick you can run CruxEX from the USB stick in VirtualBox. Follow this instruction. You can go on and also install CruxEX in VirtualBox. NOTE: While running CruxEX from a USB stick in VirtulBox the stick will be known as /dev/sda1. Your virtual hard drive will be known as /dev/sdb1. So after a hard drive install in VirtualBox you'll have to change /etc/fstab from /dev/sdb1 to /dev/sda1 and /boot/grub/grub.cfg from root=/dev/sdb1 to root=/dev/sda1. Watch a screenshot when CruxEX is running from hard drive in VirtualBox. In CruxEX Build 201223 VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed so you can run CruxEX in full screen.

Spotify
Use Spotify Web Player while running Google Chrome. For some (unknown) reason the player doesn't work in Firefox.

Install/remove software
Please read about CRUX Ports System. Most important commands: ports -u, prt-get sysup, prt-get depinst MyUsefulProgram, prt-get remove MyUnnecessaryProgram
NOTE: Don't forget to run ports -u first! Sometimes it can be necessary to add -if (ignore footprint) and/or -im (ignore md5sum) and/or -is (ignore signatue) to the just mentioned install command prt-get depinst. Example: The command prt-get depinst -if -im vlc will install Vlc Media Player. (Takes a couple of hours...). Note also: If you just want to update/upgrade one package you can do it with prt-get update MyUsefulPackage
