All packages not in the GKISS repos will be installed from the KISS repos instead. + +## Why should I use GKISS instead of KISS? + +If you're happy with KISS Linux, then you really shouldn't. Musl is a much more lightweight option than glibc and if you are able to avoid using glibc then you should. + +That being said, you might run into some issues with musl, especially with binaries, since most binaries are compiled for glibc. + +## How do I install GNU KISS Linux? + +Installing GKISS is very similar to installing KISS. Follow the instructions at [the KISS Linux installation page]( and make the following changes: + +* Instead of a KISS Linux tarball, use a [GKISS Linux tarball]( + +(optional) + +* Instead of only adding the community repo also add [the gcommunity repo]( + +## Contributing + +Though I am not accepting team members I am more than happy to accept pull requests.
