Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

According to
cd /etc; cat crunchbang-lsb-release
I've been running CrunchBang 9.04.01 for a while now and I'm very pleased with it indeed.

I've just downloaded emelfm2 and was trying to launch it from openbox with alt/f, rather than what's there now
I followed some instructions which started with
    cp /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml
Unfortunately I now have a subset of menu.xml compared to what was there previously and see that this isn't going to do the alt/f thing anyway.

Could some kind soul...
a) please post the original ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml file so I can restore it. (I did try to download the torrent from piratebay in the hope that it would be sources but the site seems down)
b) tell me how I get the emelfm2 filemanager to launch with alt/f

Thank you in anticipation and sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

not the right thread for this, but look in /etc/skel/.config/openbox/menu.xml

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

Corenominal,

When are you going to take down the "not stable" disclaimer? I have been using #! for maybe 6 months flat out now. It's on all my machines, including the one at work. The only time anything broke was when I system-upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10. Bad move.

#! is the most stable distro I have used, bar none (including Solaris and BSD).

Btw... any idea why ram usage is suddenly high (idling 200+)? I have a feeling something connected to system update.

You can use htop to check what processes are using the most memory.

A follow-up... top shows Xorg is eating up the memory. A little hunting around shows this appears to be an old problem with Xorg.

I am really pleased that you have found CrunchBang to be stable. I guess the reason I keep the disclaimer as it is, is because what works for one machine/system, may not work for another. Also, it means I can sleep at night. big_smile

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

Personnaly I had some repair to do 2-3 times because it doesn't want to start anymore and checkdisck didn't want to work. It asked me my password and it doesn't worked. I tried also my password as if I had a qwerty keyboard nothing appens. I had to launch a live session and fix it from there.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

I would like to support the OP sentiment.

I now have #! as my default distro on my laptop, my eeepc, my work PC, my two sons' laptops (ancient ex-work laptops) and am currently trying to persuade my wife to make it a clean sweep but she is married to her old Windows 2000 laptop.  I am hoping that booting the next version from USB will change her mind.

I have been using linux since Red Hat 5.1 and find your distro to be solid as a rock; really quick on old spec machines; very easy to maintain and can be hacked to look like whatever my kids want.

Thank you

L

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

@Nicky - it was probably asking for your root password however Ubuntu has root disabled. You can easily enable root by doing "sudo passwd root" and then enter the password you want.

Boy, talk about STABLE!  This thread started in 2008 and still on page one.

You want "major problem solving sessions", duel boot with another distro and you may get it, otherwise you're out of luck.  tongue

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

I think the name "crunchbang" is now related to it's speed. Not stability.

Sticky doesn't mean that a thread, this one for example; The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer thread, can't have 100 pages, it just means it's at the top of the pile in the "News & Announcments" section.

Sorry misread your post. I suppose the disclaimer is not so interesting to make one want to comment on it.

Re: The CrunchBang Linux Disclaimer

I suppose adding "results may vary" is already overkill but like the way the disclaimer is phrased.

No need to apologize.  It could have gone either way.  However there is another thread where the talk about the "disclaimer" is getting more attention.  I think it's kinda fun.

big_smile  There should be a "batteries not included" statement added that would really make things interesting. cool
