Thanks for your proposal, havent d/l it yet but I will as soon as I get back home...
The project though seems dead (last release November 2009) plus their demo page is down..

Anyhow thank you for your reccomendation, I ll report my findings after using it...

We us a project management and collaboration tool called It is free for small teams and has real nice project management and collaboration features.

It looks interesting but:

  • I am looking for a solution hosted in our own servers

  • Minimum cost, the free version of binfire has limited functionality in many aspects - limited number of projects -limited number of users - limited storage

  • Is it open-source?

Still thank you for your suggestion..

Since these forum has helped me to find various solutions, I address one more problem:

Some background info:
I work for a small familly business in the agricultural market, not in the IT department. Actually they are so small
that they dont have any in-house IT, they could be categorised as IT agnostics.  I know it sounds bad and partly it
is. Anyhow, they are quite open minded people and most of the executives are open to new suggestions.

What I am looking for :

As the title says I am looking for web-based project management software, till now I ve setup and tried the
following three solutions:

If you asked me which of the above three I would focus and try to bring in our organization, I would say project-pier although I need to do some more testing in to it before I make a clear recommendation.
I  obviously look for something open-sourced that can be tweaked and customized to fit my needs, while the cost should be minimum.

So my question is what do you people use for your own projects?
Any other directions I should look into?

Thank you people

Thank for your advice, output from acpi -V

Battery 0: Discharging, 20%, 00:48:34 remaining
Battery 0: design capacity 5988 mAh, last full capacity 5619 mAh = 93%
Adapter 0: off-line
Thermal 0: ok, 52.0 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 93.0 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 1 switches to mode passive at temperature 84.0 degrees C
Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 2: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 3: Processor 0 of 10

Furthermore state in /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0 does not exist.
To my knowledge after acpi been deprecated it has been moved in /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0, but there is no file showing current consumption rate there.

#5 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Battery consumption rate & powertop » 2012-02-09 11:54:21

I know I am slow but I think after all I am not in a great need to find the consumption rate currently.
Still though I am in a way stuck in version 1.97.

Man thanks for your time...

#6 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Battery consumption rate & powertop » 2012-02-07 10:13:29

So problem has not yet been resolved, to be honest havent worked on it alot.
Thanks for the added input, I 'll try showpkg when I get back later today to the box and see what I can get out of it.

I ll get back to you!!

#7 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Help conkyforecast. » 2012-02-03 13:09:56

Conky forecast as far as I know is not included in the Debian repos. I am not sure about the #! ones.
A possible solutions though might be here

Follow the link refered by sector11,ubuntu forums and you will find a detailed howto with many options

You know, I'm actually very glad that I went through all the hassle of upgrading, just for the experience. But I suppose there'd be nothing stopping anyone from toying around with the innards of their system even with different ISOs available, would there?

No, indeed the presence of an testing/unstable ISO would only add more option and choice on the possible paths one can take.
Furthermore I am trying to think categories of people who want to go with testing/unstable and their needs. I can see 2 basic categories:
a) Those which need to please hardware specific needs, i.e. drivers.
For those it seems that the presence of a testing/unstable ISO would only make their life easier.

b) Those who want to be on the edge
For those, I think benefits from current situation, where they need to replicate a series of steps in order to get there, outbalance benefits from an already build ISO.

But as you said those two are not mutually exclusive...
Maybe resource allocation is the only trade off to take under consideration.

#10 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » Suggestion: Official CrunchBang testing/unstable? » 2012-02-02 15:18:16

An idea that might be out of context but still an idea...
There are several howtos/guides getting you in testing/unstable in here.

How about draw a poll and see which one worked out the most?

As far as I can recall, the first Statler beta release came when Squeeze was frozen. I presume once Wheezy is frozen, I think later this year, Corenominal might consider releasing a Waldorf alpha/beta maybe, perhaps, eh, pleeaaasse, go on, you know you want to?

Well in case wheezy actually freezes somewhere around summer, a thing which you can never be sure.... a Waldorf release would look as reasonable around the same time of period....

#12 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » Suggestion: Official CrunchBang testing/unstable? » 2012-02-02 13:02:21

Recently I ve been through 5 #! reinstallations in install-wipe off frenzy.

I started from the official ISO in a netbook which required a driver for my Realtek 8192SEva2 wirelless card that was included in 3.0 kernel. I tried installing a) liquorix b) kernel from backports but both failed and ended in broken system that required a reinstallation.

I then tried it the other way around, install a testing base system netinstall add the #! repos and go with it. That failed as well as the upgrading  turned out borking sudo without me having enable root login beforehand. It was about at that point in time I wished there was a testing official ISO to take me out of the install-wipe off loop frenzy.

Finally I installed a testing base system, stayed away from #! repos this time, and tried to crunchify it following and reading corenominal's scripts pipe-menus and rest of work. The whole process made me realise how much work and effort he has invested in making #! working, furhermore I learned a whole new stuff...:)

My point is that part of what makes #! great is that it is modular and portable, the art of unix programming? You can start from most distributions around as base layer (debian, ubuntu, arch, gentoo, wtf why not fedora lol) and build it from ground to top by using core's or other people work.
Maybe the effort to make an official testing/unstable ISO would lock up resources that currently are occupied in building and developing tools that can be applied and install in a wide range of systems.

The above are just first thoughts that came into  mind when I read this topic, I am not sure yet, maybe after all if there was a testing/unstable ISO I woudl have saved my self 10 days....But on the other hand I woudlnt have gone through corenominal's work.........

#13 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Battery consumption rate & powertop » 2012-01-29 13:34:49

Well dont know what is going on.
I did the following:
1) Removed powertop
2) Left only the #! repos uncommented --> update & install powertop, there is no powertop package in #! repos.
3) Dowloaded from the the package and installed it its the same package I had before, no battery consumption functionality.
4) Removed the d/led package
5) Uncommented all repos & commented the #! --> update & install powertop, so know I am back to the debian powertop package version 1.97...

Anyhow I know the solution will come in a while on its own....Thanks for you time...

#14 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Battery consumption rate & powertop » 2012-01-28 16:20:47

Ok so I just realised something else, maybe I am wrong and I dont see the obvious but I found a second powertop site
According to there, powerTOP latest version is 1.8, further more they refer to it as powerTOP and not powertop.
I also realised that when firing the application on top is says powerTOP, but dpkg-l and apt-cache show report the application as powertop....

In the lesswatts site
latest version is 1.11

In my testing box I get

05:19 PM$ apt-cache policy powertop
  Installed: 1.97-2
  Candidate: 1.97-2
  Version table:
 *** 1.97-2 0
        300 wheezy/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I dont know if all this make sense but it looks to me that there are two applications?? Am I wrong?

#15 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Battery consumption rate & powertop » 2012-01-28 15:34:06

Well thank you for your reply, I do run on battery but still I don't get any reading. I ve visited their site as well.
My version of powertop is 1.97.

Any ideas??

So I am not sure if this is the correct place but here it goes...

I use Debian testing in a netbook,all crunsified. I have implemented various scripts from pm-utils as well as the one suggested by hardran … or-debian/.

I am trying to monitor my current battery consumption in watts, but I dont see it anywhere in powertop. Does powertop report battery consumption?
I have calibrated powertop when I first used it.

If powertop does not offer this functionality, is there another application which does?

Thanks people

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [solved] ssh port change » 2012-01-25 16:11:26

A common mistake I used to do is forget to restart ssh server on the remote machine.
For this you need  to do as root:

/etc/init.d/ssh restart

#18 Re: CrunchBang Talk » About the new CrunchBang website » 2012-01-24 12:31:59

Hey thanks for the info and all the work you put up, I am sure majority of the people will help you during the testing phase....
One quick question and suggestion:

Any ideas on 1st functional aspect (other than the registration) of the new site and when we should look into it?

And wouldn't be nice to create a new subject dedicated to the development of the new site, mayde under development or so?

#20 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Advice requested » 2012-01-23 09:37:57

Break and avoid reinstalls, those two worked for me...
Although to be honest I ve been in the 24hr install-wipe/out frenzy a few times....

#21 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW TO : using lua scripts in conky » 2012-01-18 23:02:07

Well I ve tried to implement the v9000 but with no luck, maybe not enough persistence....
I think after this series of howto I need to get back to the v9000 script and make it work!!!

Thank you for your work....

#22 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » WIFI not working on eeepc » 2012-01-16 16:31:18

One more happy user...that s the way....
For your new issues I would suggest to open up a new thread.....:)

#23 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » WIFI not working on eeepc » 2012-01-16 16:13:40

@ ablot,

One or two # makes no difference in the execution of the code after them. A line is considered to be commentend even if it has 1 single # infront of it.

Mirrors break down geographically so the one that is used in the site

# Debian Squeeze/6.0
deb squeeze main contrib non-free

is for US and you can see. Sownload speed might differ depending where you are on the planet, but packages are consistent all over mirrors, meaning that you will download the same package whether you connect to a mirror in US or in Europe.

Before proceeding try what xaos52 suggests above and see if it works, as he is expert in networking...

#24 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » WIFI not working on eeepc » 2012-01-16 15:37:00

You mean you cannot type in the search field of Synaptic?
This has happened to me as well a few times, just try to close it and open it again.

In case you have to luck open a terrminal and we will use nano as editor to edit your sources.list file:

 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list   

Check first if the lines are already there:

# Debian Squeeze/6.0
deb squeeze main contrib non-free

If there are there but the line begins with # means that the are commented so remove # form the line that starts with deb.
If lines are missing totally then add them by copy/paste. Keep in mind that in terminal and nano we copy/paste with Shift/Ctrl and then c or v respectively.

After that press Ctrl/o to save the file and Ctrl/x to exit the nano editor.
Then in the terminal  run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-brcm80211 wireless-tools 

The above will install the necessary broadcom firmware that most probably is not presen tin your system. After isntalling try to see if you get a wireless interface and report back any truble you get in the way.

Alternatively if you get o fix Synaptic you can perform the same actions through the safety of a GUI;)
