About Kwort

Kwort is a modern and fast Linux distribution that combines powerful and useful applications in order to create a simple system for advanced users who finds a strong and effective desktop. Kwort is based on CRUX, so it's robust, clean and easy to extend.

Kwort 4.3.1 released

This is minor fix of Kwort 4.3, involving some security upgrades and some improvements in our bootloaders installation.
If you want to upgrade from Kwort 4.3 to this new release, you can simply run: kpkg update && kpkg upgrade.

Our bootloaders installation has improved significantly as well as the ISO bootup. For bootloaders we have the traditional bootloader lilo and grub2 with and without UEFI support, all of them with LVM support if needed as well. For those wanting to use grub2 there's a tool now called kwort-grub-installer that will automatically configure and install the grub2 bootloader for you.

Kwort 4.3 released

New version of Kwort available, this one is 4.3. Get it while it's hot! :-)
As always we remain fast, stable, and simple and now we have grown up a little to include a lot of Linux firmwares available for tons of devices. As usual, everything has been built cleanly and from scratch.
Most significant technical aspects are:

  • Linux kernel 4.1.13.
  • New kpkg version providing exclusion support during upgrades (to avoid upgrading configuration files).
  • Chromium 47.0.2526.69 (beta).
  • The init scripts are more unified now with start-stop-daemon.


As usual. we always want to thank the people helping the project:

  • The infrastructure providers, the people from PGHosting and Ricardo Brisighelli for the package mirror and development environment in the UNR.
  • The CRUX folks for developing it, as it's Kwort's base.
  • And of course, the people who develop every project Kwort makes use of. Big thanks to all of you as well!

Kwort 4.2 is out

As the title says Kwort 4.2 is out there in the wild :-)
This new version is fast, stable, and simple as always and a little bit smaller. Everything has been built from scratch in a clean way from a new toolchain to every Xorg package.
Most significant technical aspects are:

  • Linux kernel 3.19.2.
  • Chromium 41.0.2272.76.
  • As usual our system remains light and clean as Kwort users like it.
  • New and improved GUI aspect.


People and projects I would like to thank:

  • Our infrastructure providers, the people from PGHosting and Ricardo Brisighelli for the package mirror and development environment in the UNR (this is a completely new server!).
  • As usual, a big thanks to the CRUX people for developing it, as it is the system Kwort is based on; even though Kwort 4.2 isn't based on a CRUX release, their ports system where a key component to build this release.
  • The eudev folks for supporting and approving our patch to make /run to be configurable (Kwort uses /var/run).
  • And of course, the people who develop every project Kwort makes use of. BIG THANK YOU.
