Icepack is a relatively new Linux distribtion evil3d.net has put through its paces in a brief review. Points given for a good installation and an up-to-date selection of packages, points taken for sub-par hardware detection and poor package management.

One of the big questions is? What will come with the ice package management system? Will it be as good as or better than Slackware or RedHat packages? In fact, why make another package system when there are plenty out there already? Hopefully the future will bring good things to Icepack and its team of developers.

The site also has a HOWTO for setting up NVIDIA cards under Icepack.
