Void Linux is a rolling-release Linux distribution that focuses upon speed, reliability, and flexibility. Void Linux is built from scratch, deploys its own XBPS package manager, and builds upon existing packages like systemd and DKMS. Void Linux with its package manager, XBPS, currently has over 3,000 packages for x86, x86_64, and ARMv6 hard-float architectures. With this from-scratch distribution, systemd is used as the system/session manager, a simplified DKMS is used for third-party kernel modules, RAMdisk images are made by Dracut, and there's realtime VM-based package building for this rolling release distribution.
