T-Resc is a tiny rescue system based on uClibC and K-drive Xvesa/Xfb for minimal size.
Furthermore aside these basic choices, many programs are replaced with their small-size clones: vim -> nvi, emacs -> zile, grep -> ugrep, GNU/sed -> minised, sysvinit et al. -> minit, fgetty et al. ...
As usual for the lastest T2 Live code based target builds, T-Resc allows extensions and permanant write overlays. (more...)

The current release is not yet as small as targeted, because we did not yet remove all the tiny but accumulating utilties seldom used - if at all.
The FOSS community is very much invited to define what other tools should be packed into it or beeing removed!
