Hello, I'm Qahba


I'm a web developer from Austria and i'm relatively new to linux systems. I don't really like Windows and would like to have a good-looking, working OS. It can be a little experimental so I can enhance my knowledge about Linux Systems, terminal etc. CrunchBang could be just perfect for me! But we'll see this in the next days.

Today my SSD arrived. This is the perfect point for clearing my HDs up and installing a new OS. I'm downloading CB right now.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W510 with 12 gigs of RAM, an i7 and now 500GB HD + 256GB SSD. I am quite amazed by the screenshots you guys post in this forum. I'll install CB later. I think this won't be my last post.

Encountered my first problem. Seems like CB is not installable via USB? When i try to install it from my bootable USB Stick, i get stuck at "Locate drivers for your CD-ROM". The problem is that i have no CD-ROM device installed in my Thinkpad :-p. I will unmount my HDD and replace it with a CD-ROM device so that i can install Cb from CD. :-(

Re: Hello, I'm Qahba

Thank you for the kind words. I solved the issue with the USB installation. The problem was not the wrong configured USB, but that i inserted my USB into my USB 3.0 port. The installation worked fine when i installed it from a USB2.0 port!

Just installed it :-) Had no time yesterday. It feels like christmas.
