CrunchBang Linux 8.10.01 Alternative Installation

Update 18/01/09
CrunchBang Linux 8.10.02 is available now.

------------

These are the alternative installation instructions for CrunchBang Linux 8.10.01.

Basically, the alternative installation method involves preparing a "CLI" installation of Ubuntu, before downloading a shell script which will download and install all the packages and customisations needed to transform the system into CrunchBang Linux.

Note: scripts currently only work for i386 builds.

The script can be found at:
http://crunchbanglinux.org/build-script … 8.10.01.sh
http://crunchbanglinux.org/build-script … 8.10.01.sh

The script needs to be run as root. It is not recommended that the script be run from a full Ubuntu installation, at least, I have not attempted this myself. If you want to give the script a try, follow these instructions:

1. Prepare a "CLI" only installation of Ubuntu. I find that using the Ubuntu MinimalCD is best for this.

2. Download the script with the following command:

wget http://crunchbanglinux.org/build-scripts/crunchbang-installer-8.10.01.sh

Or for the "Lite" edition:

wget http://crunchbanglinux.org/build-scripts/crunchbang-lite-installer-8.10.01.sh

3. Make the script executable with the following command:

chmod +x crunchbang-installer-8.10.01.sh

Or for the "Lite" edition:

chmod +x crunchbang-lite-installer-8.10.01.sh

4. Run the script as root with the following command:

sudo ./crunchbang-installer-8.10.01.sh

Or for the "Lite" edition:

sudo ./crunchbang-lite-installer-8.10.01.sh

5. Follow the on-screen instructions and reboot when finished.

CrunchBang Linux is not recommended for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage.
