wait, this thread not replied to in how long?!  ^_^   ~revives~

[digit@levinrhan ~]$

not very long on this voidlinux install on my main machine yet.
started using fish and xiki's xsh more, so i thought i'd take another look at what my most used commands are in bash.

there are many threads, n it's all a little sparse n hard to follow unless you're an every-second die-hard 24-7 #!forumer.

perhaps it's time to revive and retriple efforts towards with a nice explanation either directly on that page, or at least a link to a page explaining the state of crunchbang, and the various post-end forks/respins/methods/repos/packages to continue the #! experience (as well as pre-end respins too i suppose).

2 and a half years i've been using my tabular boonad config.  wow.
n i still havnt gotten around to sorting out my fangled fs notions.
- further testament to the worthyness as-is, i suppose. 
-- i wouldnt have expected such a quirky config that basically uses layout's for resizing, with no fine tune.
--- it kinda just works, by keeping the matter of window size management very simple.
---- having said that, i have been having notions of shopping around for other layouts again.
----- perhaps if only for the extra practice with the haskelling that i might one day actually manage to make my xmonadfswm extension idea.

sry if this has been made clear already, i've mostly just been skim-reading to find various pertinent infos... but my question(s):

so who are the bunsenlabs devs? 

is the organisational structure still merely "cats herding cats"?

where crunchbang is "#!", what is bunsenlabs?   "^&" ?    *shrug*

ps, love u guys.   keep going!

#10 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » in the one true #! to rule them all... systemd? devuan? » 2015-02-08 08:01:49

oh, i suppose i should throw my chips in too.

i'm not planning on using anything with systemd.  i've been properly trying it out in three different systems, getting to learn it on a user and configuration level... but that's ever more a case of "know thy enemy".  from all i learn of it beyond mere use and the tangible bits i'll see, i find it deeply repugnant, to the point i've taken to referring to it as systemdoze.  i say this only to depict the extent of my dislike, and wont bother attempting any exhausting elaborations or futile attempts to convince you of this position (that's not what this thread's for anyway).

suffice to say, i see devuan (in principle) being more befitting.  remember we used to be on ubuntu.  this is no big traversty to go from debian to devuan.  i suggest it's even in keeping with crunchbang's trajectory... or at least such is my perception.

(gl guys, i'ma b gone for a bit)

#11 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » The End ... The Beginning ... And THE NEW NAME » 2015-02-08 07:32:43

the name that sort of evolved bouncing around between people and has risen to the top of my preference pile is:


and keeping the same shebang two character short version, where now the "#" is like the community mesh of us lot... the "!" is... well it's the bang, the pow, the woohoo, same as ever.

(~ just had a last second notion before posting:...  "combine"... less sylables, still has a "c" and a "b", and rolls off the tongue much sweeter than (my still fave) "communitybang".   or maybe "combine"'s a divergent fork collating the ideas, scripts, etc from the community.   ~idk, just a hasty whim on the spot.)

i do love the name "Obsidian", though that sounds like it's sid, not stable.  ... i guess that's what those of us who upgrade to sid will be calling our #! hence forth.   smile smile

#12 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » [CANCELLED] Community IRC Meeting for Coordination Purposes » 2015-02-07 23:12:03

excellent thread and list collating the ideas.

some points to be aware of...
scheduled irc meetings may help focus in on things, but may also exclude many who for various reasons dont get to participate in the time window.   as such, i dont think they should be used as the absolute.   they also reduce thinking time for well considered input.

unfortunately we dont have ability to make polls here on #! forum, which could help clarify popular opinions on issues we raise.

... sorry.  i've come here with doubts and problems, and no solutions or suggestions... oh, cept that perhaps the time of such scheduled discussions be when it's the middle of the night in hawaii.  this helps maximise the number who might have a chance to show up.

Unfortunately, I think that to keep to the spirit of #! in the future it will be necessary to make some changes to the under-the-hood working, just as happened in the past.
All the best anyway. smile

like whether to stay debian+systemdoze or go devuan and keep the same ol sane init?   issues like that?    these are the sorts of elaborations i chose to avoid in my initial post.  amongst the guardians of the #! spirit, there'd need to be that discussion as to which way is more in keeping with the #! spirit.  maybe corenominal could check in on the elves and point in the direction he'd have chosen.

there's room for everyone's notions of their own do-ocracy variations, for packaging solutions etc, and doubtless we'll be able to have those presented too (much like many distros have multiple releases, oft for different desktops), but alongside what i hope will be a continuation of a sort of crunchbang mainline.

ugh.  i'm disgusted i'm making this thread... alas, i think it's kinda gotta be made.

if the community were to rally around one continuation of #!, what would you want it to have?

anything but systemdoze?

devuan based #! seem like a sane move to you?

(i am so sorry)
*expects ruckus*

p.s.  and if both, which is the fork, and which is the true way?

with your initial (good!) questions answered rather well indeed, i wish you the best with this adventure. smile
any idea what you'd call it?

you seem to be planning for more than just rolling (which i take to mean just "sid" in relation to debian), to include releases for all branches, which may prove to be a sizeable workload.  any notion as to how often you'd release iso snapshots?  (even, auto-generated on a timer?!) presumably more rapid release for sid than testing/stable?  ~ idk, maybe these questions are jumping the gun.  one step at a time.

vsido's a #! inspired sid/experimental distro, releasing every fortnight or there abouts (i think), and manages to pull off a rather cushy media-ready userland and simple but glitsy composit'ed fluxbox interface for something in the 350-450mb region iirc.  might be some more tips n tricks to learn from its development too.  smile

i saw that too.  hit home harder with that, than with the announcement.

i look at that top bar though... where it says about, download, community, donate, search.   it's right.  that middle word isnt "forum" for a reason.  wink  community bang

there's such a swell of love for #!, rest assured, this is not so much the end, as a change.  as the news of "The End" spreads, i expect we'll see even more rally to the cause to keep their, our, your, my, everyone's most-loved-distro alive in some form.   ... and expect this shock to produce yet even more crunchbang children.  everyone's talking about going forking mad!  (that last bit may contain some mild hyperbole)

see? (o wait that one was me.)
see? "Sparkle Dancer" will live on...  ... or, maybe something.

folks just wont accept this as an end end end type end.  nu-uh.    smile

*dons the ceremonial robes of a black t-shirt with a #! on it, and starts banging a tambourine, and singing:*

"Oh crunchbang i love you, and i love philip too.  OpenBox and bobobecks.  Running fast and light is right.  Oh crunchbang i love you a"

OH!  is this thread basically pointing to same idea of the afterlife?

that was not immediately apparent to me.  ^_^

LONG LIVE SPAR~,   *gag*, no, cant even bring myself to say those words.  heheheeh. XD

there are many who are forking, but will we gather to ensure one heads straight and true, and ongoing manage to keep it holding form?  that's my hope.

i love the packagebang .deb-it-up idea. 
"cd sized iso" is highly praised and sought too.

Just in case you missed it:  The End.

There is so much love for what crunchbang is, that many of us would like to continue it.

Some have suggested their own ideas for forking, and the changes they'd make, or seeking ideas from other users for what changes they'd like.

I would like to present the idea of a community maintained crunchbang continuing without changes. 

#! as is, as always was, steady, familiar, no radical erratic frivolities.  tried and true.

as was phrased on irc:

the way i see it, we already live in a world with an over-abundance of crunchbang-alike distros, most of which are debian based, but as of today, we're entering a world without actual crunchbang itself.  that's the thing that needs replacing imo.  something that's /exactly/ like crunchbang.

It needs to be #! exactly, only made to be future-compatible

I shant ramble with further elaborations on finer detail, but will just launch this notion as is, as a sort of rallying cry to attract the vanguard... those who see the value in this idea, and want to help to this end.

Please, if this sounds like something you want, chime in. 
If this sounds like something you have relevant skills and knowledge to help achieve, please chime in all the louder.  Raise your hand so we can see you.  ;D
If you have plans for what you'd like to change, then i wish you every luck in your endeavor, but this is not that place.

community crunchbang forever.

i dare say crunchbang inspired at least a dozen of them.


so many crunchbang-alikes out there, and not just on debian. 

i still think the best plan is to collect those who are most interested and dedicated to helping maintain crunchbang as is, the crunchbang we love (no magpies who want to install a million whirly bobs allowed ~ such was the ruin of several crunchbang-wannabes), and get this devuan-based community-made crunchbang eternal legacy release organised and made.  wink

we have the community, we have the love, we have the distro-outline...
