Finally! Got Crunchbang on my OLPC XO

Hi everyone,

I finally got Crunchbang 9.04 running on my XO laptop!
Now I need to get the camera going, and figure out if there's anything else missing...

I used the instructions from here:
     http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ubuntu_On_OLPC_XO

Basically, Qemu and Crunchbang Live disk didn't work well together...so I had to jump through some hoops...
I used the Ubuntu 32 bit mini.iso

Then ran the Crunchbang Alternate Installer Script

Then removed upstart and installed sysvinit 

Then used "dd" and copied the Qemu raw image directly to my SD Card.

Then I had to copy the various files from my XO to the SD Card to ensure that the card would be recognized...

The XO rebooted the first time it attempted to boot from SD, after that all is well smile

Re: Finally! Got Crunchbang on my OLPC XO

that is a very interesting setup

how's the performance?

it must be pretty cramped though...isn't the XO running at 800x600?

Re: Finally! Got Crunchbang on my OLPC XO

So, right now it's a bit slow...slow enough I may need to consider moving over to the Lite edition sad

But, in order to use gstreamer, I had to allow my user to use video capture devices on the XO.

With that selected and a reboot, I was good to go...

Still working out troubles with WPA vs WEP, etc...

The Lite edition will save you space but not much performance gain. I suggest you disable unnecessary services. Also this page might help you some:

Re: Finally! Got Crunchbang on my OLPC XO

The resolution is 1200x900, so it's not cramped, just a little tough on my eyes at times smile

I have to figure out how to get the dedicated keys working on crunchbang. 

I had a version of Intrepid installed, that had the keys working, so I think I'm gonna start looking though there and see if there is something I can pull back for this install. 

Any suggestions?
