Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

So debian is always text-based installer?

That's ok, I used to do Arch back in the day, but since I've used ubuntu-based distros I have a number of partitions. i assume it uses gparted for that? i never liked it much, ubuntu installer made partitions easy to work around.

I can't install Statler because I have no external hdd at the moment to backup my files before I do a new install.

Installed statler yesterday on my old desktop (celeron 1,4 Ghz on asus tusl2-c with 512Mb RAM, old Nvidia geforce). The installation of the openbox version from cd-rom was debianlike without problems.

May I inquire about your screen resolution?  Did your choice of resolutions include 1024 x 768?

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

hi everybody,

ok, i tried on my msi wind u100plus... & didn't work...

built a liveusb with unetbootin ---> reboot ---> (had problems recognizing the cdrom:
tried going to shell and "mount /dev/sda /cdrom"  and got: "failed:invalid argument")
---> on new boot tried "text install" & "expert install" with "cdrom-detect/try-usb=true" ---->
i got to installing almost 90% complete when the debian install menu popped back and asked to install the system---> tried again to install the system and got: "installing to unclean destination" (tried to reinstall to the unclean destination & to start from the beginning) & to continue with the next step---->
got in a loop with the install menu saying i skipped the "install the system" and asking again and again to install the system to the unclean destination.....

now on the live openbox alpha....

any idea?

edit: it doesn't meant that the live alpha isn't cool & nice & way faster smile

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

if you check this thread
http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … b-install/

alot of the usb-install problems are discussed. If you follow the wiki...
http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/statler … stallation
...for making the bootable usb disk it should work with what you've done abot.

Not sure why unetbootin doesn't work here.

Hope this helps,

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

I'm running into a video problem.  I have an old Toshiba A15-157 laptop hooked up to a monitor(don't know if that makes a difference).  The card is an intel integrated 82852/855gm card.  I haven't installed Statler, but the screen jumps and flickers when I insert the install cd.  The #! 9.04 install disk doesn't do this so I don't think it is a hardware problem.  Any ideas?

Thanks, Chet

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

so, I downloaded statler in openbox and xfce and tried on 2 older desktop pcs (380 mb ram,800 mhz and a 1,8 ghz 512Ram) so far. hope this is the right thread to give bug-reports? if not, please copy to the right thread, thanks.

first: responsive, fast, nice. nice, can't wait for the final version!

but here come my bugs/problems, that weigh pretty hard, cause they make alpha still not usable for me..


*lots of HDD-related I/O errors during live cd boot. but it does start.

* on liveCD: after boot, no harddrives are detected at all in thunar.. but I can see them in other programs.
both pcs have two hdd's with various partitions. no harddrives in thunar detected, be it FAT, ext3 or whatever filesystem. but USB drives automount well on thunar.
problem beats me..

* really hard for me: The network manager is not recognizing hardware (a wlan usb-stick) that was immediately detected on #! 9.04. or it detects, but does not find any networks.
could you please include the old network manager, that worked just absolutely perfect on all machines and hardware I tried #! 9.04 on?

* I don't like the grey field under the active desktop in tint. how can I remove this? want all transparent, I just can see which desktop I'm on.

* terminal apps! please include terminal apps!

* in xfce it is difficult to find out how to edit conky and the #! keybinds if you don't know which files to search for. there should be an easy access in the menu to it like in the openbox version.


#! 9.04 was working really perfect, hope statler can meet these standards

ok, hope my problems will be history soon. thanks for the work you put in the new #!
cheers!

Its normal behavior (not a bug) that Thunar does not show internal partitions.

Edit your ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc file and under TASKBAR, change the value of "taskbar_active_background_id" to 1. Then restart tint2.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

^ thanks anonymous, I will try this when I am back home.

but how can I see internal partitions in thunar then? only after installation? what if I install on one HDD and want to see the other partitions? what's the sense in this behaviour?

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

First you mount the partitions using the command-line or a program (like GParted), then you can view the mounted partitions using Thunar by going to the mount point like /media/disk.

BTW in case you didn't see my post edit, I answered your question about tint2 as well.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

yeah, I saw the one about tint, excellent! thanks.

about the HD-problem: wow, do I really have to do that everytime I need to read or save files from my HDs?? what's the sense in this behaviour?

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

If you add your drives to fstab (using pysdm), I think the partitions will automatically mount on boot.

wicked. I'll try it later.. you're the best, anon!  - thanks once again for your friendly and helpful advice.
pysdm is indeed quite useful and should be included to statler default.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

I downloaded and installed openbox-statler-i686 on my 9 yrs old pIII/1ghz/256MB toshiba laptop. it's light, fast and more stable than many "final" distros out there. The project has benefited a lot by the decision to use a debian base. Well done and congrats to Philip and all the people contributing. After a while of experimenting with arch and freebsd you guys won me back.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

Sugestion:

Are you aware that the Debian repositories used by default are deutsch? :-P I was wondering why updates were going so slow.

I'm not sure where most crunchbang users are from, but I'd assume big places like US, GB, or even FR. Should the default location for the repos be changed? (I'm just mentioning it in case it was overlooked / no one noticed).

^Germany is big place.

Personally I think UK would be fine default if location of repos was changed.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

The Debian Squeeze repositories in "my" sources.list are listed as "GB"

GB = United Kingdom.    Would be my guess.

I didn't have any problems, changing them all to "US"

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 1 Released

Toolz found a script that looks for the fastest repo and writes a new sources.list file. It  needs a bit of changing to work with the statler repo (I just hardcoded it in for now) and you may have to run it a couple of times but it seems like it could be handy.
