Waldorf testing R20120806

Much yayness big_smile Posting this from my Acer Aspire 4710 running Waldorf testing R20120806 32-bit 686 version, running from the live USB and connected via a USB broadband/3G dongle modem thing.

Now, what's new ... ?

  • Places and Recent Files menu entry

  • ClipIt

  • Language switcher thingie

  • Different Thunar icons

  • Different context menu icons

  • Link to edit Hot Corners and SSH config files (new I think)

You can tell this is new -- "apt-get dist-upgrade" only needs to download 2MB.

PS: Go donate now...

PPS: Thanks of course to corenominal lol

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

Thanks #! Die-hard, didn't know there were newer testing images available. Does this new image correct the freeze at detecting network hardware during installation? Corenominal had said at one point the next images would fix that issue.

I tried everything to get past that on my laptop and nothing worked. Even letting it alone over night while it was stuck on that screen. I only have Waldorf on my desktop because of that issue with my laptop.

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

^ Don't know the answer to that as I have not experienced it myself on any hardware and haven't yet installed the latest build. corenominal announced the new build here and later in that thread, but I'm not aware of an official "What's new".

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

Busy weekend ahead, i have 4 PC's and a Acer Aspire One that needs reinstall :-)

Btw SabreWolfy, 3G dongles are too mainstream, mine is modded/soldered to the "place where the wifi also is sitting at" (i have a D150/ZG5)

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

^ Fair enough big_smile I'm just delighted that it works by just running the wizard. Support for the wireless on this laptop (Broadcom 4311) is so terrible (at least under Waldorf R20120430, and earlier I think), that I need to use a dongle connecting to a cell tower wherever, rather than wifi connecting to a router in the next room wink

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

I am running live with the 486 32bit version and so far it's doing very well.  I like very much. 

Props to corenominal for the great job and thanks so much for the 486 non-pae version.  Will have to install when I get home from work tonight.  Woohoo!!!

Did you check the checksum of the ISO and compared it with the hashsum?
Which ISO (non-PAE, 32- or 64 bit?)
How did you dd it (to /dev/sdx, not /dev/sdx1)? 


I'm running it from USB (dd method) and it's top notch. Love the little tweaks.

Edit:

Installed on real iron. The installer went through without problems. When asking where to install GRUB, just like before, it stated there wasn't any other OS detected on the drive (actually there are 8!)  - anyway, I have a guess what causes this (separate thread sometime)
What works is the internet connection test in cb-welcome (this has failed previously), so kudos wink

OK so far, testing the future stable smile

Downloaded 32-bit 686 version and ran it without problems from USB made with "dd". Check the md5 checksum.

Hopefully, yes, but if you could let me know how you get on, I would appreciate it.

Also, sorry for the lack of build notes, I'll try and put something together tomorrow.

Exactly how are you using dd to copy the iso? What errors are you receiving, if any?
As SabreWolfy suggested, first check the md5sum of the downloaded iso, and then see this thread for the recommended method for copying it to USB: http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/statler … stallation

Make sure you are specifying the device (/dev/sdb, for example) and not a partition on the device (/dev/sdb1).

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

Gave the Live ISO a test-run today.  I support the switch from VLC to Mplayer.  Can't say I'm fond of the noise in the default wall, but I always change my wallpaper to my Motorola jukebox power amp schematic anyway.

As before, my Realtek wifi dongle worked splendedly at first, but after a reboot failed to connect.  (None of this is Philip's or Debian's fault.  I just wish either I could figure out what's going wrong with this particular Realtek binary on all kernels other than the one in the Statler+bpo image.)


Yes; as a matter of fact, I am a cop.  Why do you ask? cool

Oh, that's disappointing. VLC is a must have on my machines. It's not a biggie but I'm just wondering why the change?

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

I'm not sure about Papanominal's reasons, but VLC has always had problems with blocky mpg noise, especially when skipping forwards/backwards; WMV videos especially like to cause VLC to lock up and refuse to quit.

Re: Waldorf testing R20120806

Unable to install on my dell latitude d800 from usb with the 32bit 486 version.  It keeps hanging at detecting disks.  At that point all I have is the installer screen that is blank.  I also have a mouse pointer that I can move around.  It runs great live.  The md5sum checks out fine.:mad:

Is it the step where it searches for the installation media or where it would proceed to the partitioning?
Have you prepared partitions with gparted before? Any other OS's on the disk?

@SabreWolfy: apologies for hijacking your topic, but to try and help keep any issues and feedback manageable, I have closed the topic. Please see: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … -20120806/

P.S. I did initially move all the replies too, but decided that moving them placed some of them out of context, so I moved them back. Doh.
