Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Also got a new rig. Basically had to trade two laptops for it, but it runs #! beautifully. smile

HP dc7700s
Proc: Pentium D 945 3.4ghz
Ram: 1GB(only ddr2 desktop ram I have in the house is ECC, so I have to wait until I can upgrade)
Graphics: GMA 3000
OS: Dual boot XP Pro and #! 9.04(if I can get a cheap copy of Wind 7, I will probably run a VM)
Using a WMP54G(broadcom chip) PCI adapter. #! installation was fast, and no problems with partitioning or the other basics(sounds, resolution etc)

Terminal: There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Terminal is my best friend. It is my life.
I must master it as I master my life. My Terminal, without me, is useless. Without my Terminal, I am useless.
Currently using #! 9.04
Specs of my rig

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Just installed it on another computer, here it is;

Laptop Dell E1505
T2020 1.6ghz Core Duo
1gb DDR2-667
120gb HDD
15.4" panel @ 1920x1200

Dvd writer/Wireless/card reader/usb ports and all the jazz you usually get... etc

Great little machine, I almost prefer using it to my desktop. I think I need to set it up similar.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Bored at school, so i write my system here too:

CPU: Intel Core 2 E8500 @ 3,6 GHz
Screen: 2 * 19" screens (TwinView works nicely smile )
RAM: 2 * 2GB DDR2 800 MHz
HDD: 500GB + 1TB
GPU: Nvidia 9500 GT

Runs smoothly, running one virtual machine(WinXP) under crunchbang too, without any problems.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Processor:  Intel Atom 270 1.6ghz

HDD:  32GB SSD + 8GB SD Card

Works like a champ. Using Blueman to pair with an Apple aluminum bluetooth keyboard and may add a bluetooth mouse (currently using logitech wireless mouse w/ nano receiver) after I move from Korea to Italy. After I get to Italy I will also replace my Dell E1705 w/ a Studio XPS and convert it and my desktop to Linux (likely Crunchbang).

Dell Studio 1537 Notebook N series

2GHz Dual Core
2 Gb RAM
Intel GMA 4500 HD
160 Gb HDD
Slot-in DVD Dual Layer

And I bought It, without the Mo$t used and recommended Operating system, 'couse I like to f@k with Linux on it... :-D

Everything is working fine on my laptop...
I know it's not a hard core gaming Note...
And I use it like that way.
I use graphical appz(inkscape, xaralx, gimp, blender) and web developing tools...
All right, I got to tell you, Warsow is running on it sometimes... :-D
And hmmm yes, yesterday I tried Yofrankie on it, 'couse, last time it was a horror, thank's to the recent Xorg-Intel package..
, but now it works fine... :-D (yes, I know, I'm 33, but look at that cute, evil little face... Yofrankie rulez!)

Runs fine. I tried Linux Mint Fluxbox CE before, memory use was a bit heavier on mint but not much (maybe 30 MB) but #! boots remarkably faster. Of course mint is a bit user-friendlier but I don´t mind editing config files most times and once the system is set, I won´t touch it anyway.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I will do the same for my primary computer, an old Dell laptop hooked up to
a 24 inch Dell TFT monitor. I just want to say that this distro runs more smooth
than any other distro i've tried so far. The laptop is really old and crappy which
makes it even more fun, everything works very well. I like the idea that
old hardware can be used for a longer time.

Name:  Dell Latitude D505
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.60GHz, 2Mb cache, 400Mhz bus speed
Screen 1:  14.1 in TFT , 1024x768 (XGA )
Screen 2: DELL ULTRASHARP, 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
RAM: 1 GB SDRAM, 333Mhz (max 2GB)
HDD:  40GB, 5400rpm
Optical Drive:  CD-RW / DVD-ROM combo - Integrated
Graphics: Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Dynamic Video Memory Technology 2.0, 855GME Chipset
Sound:  Intel onboard
Network: Intel Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter
Other:  USB2.0 laptop, USB2.0 external monitor, Firewire (laptop, never used it),

I will install your distro on my near future Nvidia Ion net-top aswell, which will replace my current
laptop as workstation this september.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

My new subnotebook:

Name: Acer Aspire 3810 Timeline
Processor:   Core 2 Solo SU3500 / 1.4 GHz
Memory:  RAM 4 GB
HDD:  320 GB
Graphics:  GMA 4500MHD Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0
Network:  Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : 802.11 a/b/g/n (draft)
Display:  13.3" TFT 1366 x 768 ( WXGA )
Webcam:  CineCrystal
Weight: 1.6 kilogramm
I'm quite satisfied. It's a great machine. In most reviews about this notebook it's said that the only disadvantage is the relatively weak processor. That makes the preinstalled vista relatively slow. wink
Of curse #! runs a little bit faster smile
The biggest + for me is the battery lifetime (6 to 7h normal use) and a 64bit processor (I need this for programming).
The only thing that does not work so far are the volume function keys. The function keys for brightness control do work.
And sadly supend to ram doesn't work with kernel 2.6.28.
For more information see or write me a message.

PS: The bug "Blocked during Reboot / Shutdown" only appear with ubuntu, not with crunchbang.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Acer Veriton N260G  Nettop (purchased one month ago)

Processor: Intel Atom 280 1.66GHz
Memory: 1GB DDR2 667MHz (Max 2GB)
HD: 160GB
Display: fairly old Benq 17" lcd monitor
Graphics Card: Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M
Optical Drive: None supplied, but I use a crappy, E-bay, plastic-encased external one that works fine
Operating System: dual boot #!Crunchbang and Mint
USB Ports: 6 x USB 2.0 (4 Front + 2 Rear) I can only find five! Puzzling!
Mouse: Kraun with nice pretty changing coloured lights
Keyboard: Apple wired aluminum. A dream keyboard. You can have lots of fun discovering where they have hidden the # character, as there is no key.

A great set up which works as quiet as a mouse and surprisingly responsive. I have no problem doing all the standard stuff, as well as web development. Gimp is a little slow on large image processing but I can live with that. Am going to add a further gig of ram.
Crunchbang works a treat on the Atom Ant.

I have Crunchbang on my Samsung NC10 netbook too. Zips along!

   Hmm, in this part there's no good news. Some tweaking helped, but the system is still crawling really slow. Everything works, though, except for sound and 3D rendering. If you want to contribute to the fun of making this baby dance, please post your suggestions/notes here: … ning-slow/

I really need some good advice in hardware and/or kernel compiling/tweaking.

I remember getting a 350Mhz machine back in the late 90's.  it was so FAST!  What happens?  How come 350 Mhz was fast then (and i was doing 3d graphics on Windows 95 for a living) yet now is excruciatingly slow?  What's happened to the OS's?  Shouldn't they becoming more efficient, not less? 

Perhaps you should pop on Windows 95? wink

its what youre used to, it makes me laugh all these people with 4gb of ram and 3ghz processors then feel the need to state #! runs smoothly, or those with ancient 2ghz 1gb pcs

my second pc has 350mhz processor and 256mb ram and its fine with crunchbang.

my laptop has 512mb of ram and shock horror has used 20mb of swap

although having said that i always thought my 486 with 8mb ram was a bit slow, (c&c wasnt fun, or quake)
oh and dialup was never fun either.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

My candidate is an old Fujitsu laptop, 266MHz Celeron and 192MB RAM.
It ran Ubuntu + LXDE OK before and is now bravely struggling with XFCE so Crunchbang Lite should be an improvement...
Will report when I get round to doing it.
