We are moving to libera.chat network
Due to the recent events happening on the freenode IRC network, we have decided to move to the Libera IRC network.
Please join us on irc.libera.chat (https://libera.chat/), channel #lunar.
We are still very much alive
We have received many questions as of late if the Lunar Linux project is still alive; the short answer to that is YES! Of course we can’t deny the fact that we are a little short on manpower right now, but packages are getting updated pretty much every day. If you want to track the [...]
Lunar Linux 1.7.0 (i686 & x86_64) ISO’s released
You better believe it, the day you all have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Lunar team proudly announce the final release of Lunar Linux 1.7.0 codename ‘Sinus Successus’.
Like the phoenix rising from the ashes Lunar Linux is back with a vengeance; a lot of overhauling have been done all over the [...]
Lunar Linux 1.7.0-rc2 (i686 & x86_64) ISO’s released
Some might have believed we were down for the count, but on the contrary we have actually been quite busy working on the core of Lunar (and with our lives). Four very long years has passed by since our last release. Yet there have been a few adventurous souls still brave enough to [...]
We are about to wrap up the transition of the lunar services to our new hosts. There are still a few tasks that remains to be handled but we will get to them as fast as we possibly can. Should you notice any issues please don’t hesitate to tell me (Ratler) or Auke [...]
Services from lunar-linux.org may be disrupted
(original message by Auke (sofar) on the maillinglist)
as some of you know our current hosting solution will no longer be available to us in the future. We’re working on a temporary solution to prevent most services from becoming unavailable altogether, but we can’t foresee any issues with migration. So, please be prepared for any [...]
New installation ISO development

The next installation ISO has been in development for some time now and there have been 4 [...]
As every developer has his own way of using git and developing lunar modules,
I think, it’s an appropriate first post to describe my basic workflow.
First of all my systems moonbase is the git-repository, instead of the default one.
So `lunar set MOONBASE` prints
While this allows instant integration of [...]
new 32bit chroot image
Just updated and uploaded a new image for use as a 32bit chroot – This is especially for those interesting, who want to use Lunar Linux in 64bit and need to run 32bit apps as well. Lunar Linux is not multilib and will, as it looks like, never be multilib (but never say never, so). [...]
Future use of MAINTAINER= in DETAILS
Currently we aren’t using the MAINTAINER= flag correctly in Lunar. I’d even go that far and say, we don’t care about that flag and we simply ignore it. With the new separation (stable / unstable) this will change:
The maintainer-flag is usually set by developers or people for a specific module; that means such people [...]
