Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

^Parted Magic ? Pretty much same thing El_ said though, one of the utils it includes is gparted live. Kinda an either/or thing. I've become fond of parted magic as my go to tool for dorking w disks n partitions. It's never let me down ... yet anyway.


Edit ... doubled back to add this link. Just to mention the other prog in that thread. Let's people make a cd/dvd-etc with a buncha iso's on it. Which think is nice ... not having to waste discs. Mainly still using RW cds n dvds anyway.

Some common cbiz abbreviations. This will save me time and yet @ same time tell folks what the babble is supposed to mean.

Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

I had good luck with Mint Debian Xfce in the past.
Not as much work as straight Debian, but Mint pays less attention to it compared to other projects.
Just don't trust Ubuntu code on my machines anymore...

Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

^ I have yet to try Mint at all, it seems to me to be another mass package like that of Ubuntu.

After my experiences with Ubuntu I have chosen to stay away from them.

What do you mean by 'Mint pays less attention to it compared to other projects.' ?

Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

What do you mean by 'Mint pays less attention to it compared to other projects.'

Linux Mint Debian Edition seems to receive less attention from the devs than Ubuntu-based Mint editions.

You can do for weeks without a Mint update (GUI-based icon in the lower right) whereas you get a 4 or 5mb update through the terminal on a weekly basis. Once every 3 to 6 months, you get a massive update of 500mb to 1tb. Getting that much code at once often breaks things, and because there's so many things that have changed, it's hard to find the entry and exit wound.

Fixed the last broken mint-flash-plug-in by installing the debian version. The forums agreed that for LMDE, that was fine, but it wouldn't have worked on Mint_Xfce_13. Kinda knew it was time to leave... The only thing that really kept me around was the PPA for Handbrake worked, while it didn't on #!

Soon as I got that figured out [http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … e-install/], back-up_and_install_#! smile

Still a good place to get one's feet wet, Mint, but just not staying there anymore.

I should have left it at that, too.

Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

New developments!

I have decided to use Waldorf instead of Statler for this new installation. My files are being backed up as we speak; as soon as that process has finished, in goes the Waldorf install DVD. I will soon be a real-life, official #! user - I'm so excited! big_smile

Re: Is CrunchBang Statler more or less stable than Xubuntu?

To be honest, Statler is one of the most stable operating systems I have used.  I am on Waldorf now, and have been going for two months with zero issues.  #! has been stable and solid since I started using it a few years ago.  Granted, I haven't done a ton of fiddling, but I play around with stuff plenty.  In my experience, both Statler and Waldorf are more than stable enough to be a daily OS.  I remember seeing just recently that people were talking about getting rid of the "Crunchbang might break!" disclaimer, but I can't find the thread at the moment  hmm

...and now, my files are actually being backed up successfully! The last hard drive ran out of space mid-backup; this time, I am copying everything (all 500GB of everything) to a drive with 762GB of free space.

Wish me luck! smile

now my question
about this = I dislike Gmail

Email, I found, is best either self-hosted (whether that means setting up that old computer in your garage as a mail server or purchasing a shared hosting account and running pop3 accounts from there), or run through Fastmail.

to save me some reading
could you elaborate, why fastmail
i use lavabit cause it does what it needs to without all the shite
but i have had an @ownmail(fastmail) account for like 10 years that doesnt get much use
should it?

Some further thoughts on the "Lavabit question" - note posts 18 and 19.
