@pvsage: Really ? Ext4's been just fine on my setup...no hangups or noticeable issues so far.

@fox: I am not being cautious really, just lazy. Otherwise that's the standard I follow anyway. wink

Hi Alcy,
#! 8.04 is the long-term-support release and should be supported through April 2011. No rush to upgrade.

I finally replaced 8.04 with 9.04 about a month ago. There are a few minor improvements in the interface (I really hated tablaunch in 8.04; love the new panel in 9.04) but mostly I wanted newer versions of applications.  (In your case, you can dual boot into 9.10 Netbook if you need the latest.)

Ah well, guess my current setup is just fine then. Thanks for the info! smile

Frankly, with the future of #! up in the air (will there be a 9.10 release, or will #! hop to a different distro?) I would wait a little while, see what happens.

Now, what's this about ?! I remember when I last browsed the forums ( been quite a few months !) there was some talk about corenomial stalling the development for a while, but that was when he & his wifey were going out for some vacation.  What is it this time ?

Well I have been using #! 8.04 (+ because I don't even remember what version it is !) for quite some time & just wished to see how things were going here after the Ubuntu 9.04 release. I am currently dual booting Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix with #! 8.04+, mostly using #!.

I just wish to know if I REALLY need to upgrade to #! 9.04+, if its better than 8.04+ in any respect...I am getting along just fine with 8.04, but thought I'd just ask, if 9.04 is more exciting. I am guessing ext4 & other system updates would have made #! even faster. Sorry for being lazy & not checking out change logs etc....thought I'd ask at the forums. big_smile

#4 Re: CrunchBang Talk » CrunchBang 9.04? » 2009-04-27 17:10:05

Heh. Crunchbang has definitely made a mark, hasn't it...most of the people are happy with their current versions and have little reason to upgrade, other than, as stated before, curiosity. This is so cool. I will definitely upgrade as I haven't had a single major problem with #!...really curious about the upcoming version ! cool

Also I am in total agreement with releasing only a single version. That's more of a USP than a limitation I feel. However I do hope Unetbootin will work fine as I am relying on it this time rather than my external SATA CD drive whose adapter got burnt last month !

It has worked well before , with that play-during-record option  enabled.

Okay I am too lazy to diagnose the issue myself (well, simply because haven't faced any issues for a long time and am satisfied with #! too much big_smile)

The thing is one fine day SMplayer gave me no sound. Mplayer followed after some days. But, Totem and Rhythmbox have no issues. Also, I made this cool tune but Audacity won't record ( it used to, before. Could it be that it didn't like the tune much ? tongue) . So...what did I do wrong ? Nothing that I know of or remember (no fiddling with the preferences or anything like that). My main concern is audacity though. Any help appreciated.

#8 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Why do you use #!Crunchbang » 2008-12-28 04:08:46

^^There's a reason why I  highlighted "by default".
And sudo nautilus doesn't work well. That also gave me those access/permission denied problems.

#9 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What are your favourite Linux applications? » 2008-12-27 19:39:27

Audacity for recording/editing.

Rhythmbox

Gxine because its light and easily configurable.

Nano was introduced to me when I was using Arch (for editing some configuration files). Been a fan since.

dd makes writing images to usb so easy. Again, from Arch wiki.

kill just when linux starts acting like windows. tongue

Seamonkey for browsing because its really light and fast.

Cheese Webcam app. I had given up on trying various tools to get my webcam working. I *seriously* wonder why its not included in Ubuntu Studio and why I didn't read anything about it before. Got to know through #!.

#10 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Why do you use #!Crunchbang » 2008-12-27 10:27:56

Well, its one of those distributions that stump you on their first run.

1. Thunar (root mode)

Example: When I was using Ubuntu, to copy stuff from USB drives , I had to resort to the terminal and then the sudo business for simply copying some music. Not cool.

Having an option for running Thunar in root mode by default is a good idea for users who know their way around and don't like being bugged to  use sudo on the terminal frequently.

2. The Interface

Openbox, conky, compositing, integration with XFCE and easy configuration of these. Very cool.

3. The repositories !

Life savers.

4. Lightweight enough for doing some recording/editing work without glitches using Audacity.

5. Nice selection of default apps installed (except Totem tongue )

6. Well, this one's not #! specific, but, success with compilation of the 2.6.27.10 kernel (to cut more bloat). Guess #! is lucky for me. wink

Cool. I did that before, but didn't wait to see what happens after reboot. Thanks !

I am not sure if this is openbox-specific or not. The issue is, I have to manually enable compositing every time I reboot. What am I missing here ?
