I am new to the #! scene. I have been prowling the boards for awhile, reading all the useful information I can find. I'm a long time Linux user (started with Slackware and some 3.5" floppy disks), and love the simplicity of crunchbang. I'm not very apt-get savvy, but there's nothing a little reading can't solve, right?
Anyway, hope to get to know everyone a little better and maybe enjoy my favorite hobby along the way.
Perhaps you can teach me a few things!
hi vhunterk, welcome to the community! great to have even more experience hanging around here
Welcome to Crunchbang VhunterK
Welcome to #! vhunterk, read, prowl, and enjoy!
#!, all else is but a shadow!
May the Kernel be with you!
Yo, welcome aboard. Coming from Slackware I think that #! will be a breeze. There's a little getting used to, but it's just because all the packaging stuff is managed for you by dpkg and apt.
Critical ones to know are:
apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get install pckgnamehere anotherpckgnamehere morenameshere apt-get remove pckgname another andanother
All dependencies are automatically resolved for you though, so you can just do
apt-get install gimp
and it will install everything else you need for that.
and to get info about installed package versions
apt-cache policy pckgname
I rarely ever use anything else, but I don't mess with mixing versions.
