#2 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » HELP! Is Crunchbang not being updated anymore? [SOLVED] » 2015-06-26 18:10:43

Hi-if you look at the thread"is it safe to continue with waldorf"there is some basic advise /instructions that show how to omit the crunchbang repositories and just run with the wheezy repositories only going forward.Be sue to follow the instructions to delete and then re-install the tint2 panel to avoid problems.
You will then have crunchbang following the wheezy repositories that will give you at least 12 more months,and then switching to the long term repositories that will be introduced next year (I think) will allow you to safely carry on for a couple more years at least.

Hi-am I correct in saying that Wheezy is going to be long term supported,with the LTS repos that can be used from feb 2016,and will mean Wheezy will have security updates until May 2018?

#4 Re: News & Announcements » A community continuation: BunsenLabs » 2015-06-12 23:02:24

Ariya-I have also been with CB for several years with very few posts.
While I would also like to get a BunsenLabs iso, I am happy to wait for the developers to produce something they feel is ready and good enough for general release.
Corenominal also didnt bow to pressures and only put releases out when he believed they were good and ready-his own high standards dictated when the next release was ready for testing by others.
I have no affiliation to the team that is developing the next release of CB/BL,whatever you want to call it-but monitoring the posts feel that what will appear will be worth waiting for as their standards also appear to be high.
I think that one of the appeals of Linux for many is the constant updates,so you feel you are getting something new and improved all the time.Recently I posted that I had tried out several distros(including jessie lxde),and the main reason is that I felt I was missing out on something new that would be a massive improvement.
I use my laptop for mainly surfing the net and listening to music and have to say that each time I install something new I cant notice any amazing improvement and to be honest find defects that make me return to my CB install.
If you cant wait that`s fine-just move on to another distro-nothing is stopping you.If you want BL to come out sooner offer to help with the development.The other option is to just wait while the developers produce something that we will all be proud of.
I am one of the CB members from 2009,and I am quite happy to wait for what I believe will be a great final release of BL-at the moment I am running CB with the wheezy repos so no pressure for a change as support for the present release will be for several months/years.

#5 Re: News & Announcements » The end. » 2015-02-06 21:53:48

Already posted once -weird thing is I woke up this morning thinking I would spend the day trying to find another distro,as I had a feeling # was going to end soon.Before I had seen "the end " post I had gone through a couple of bbq`s-vsido-antix-bridge-archbang-finally zorin.All brilliant distros.......but just didnt feel right.Am writing this using Zorin,nice light distro,great for listening to music,but shit none of them come close to #.
Dont know why,when I am using # its just so natural.

In fact going to install it again and let it run into the sunset.........

Or until Sparkle Dancer is launchead-nice thread-exactly what # is/was about.

#6 Re: News & Announcements » The end. » 2015-02-06 17:21:48

Not surprised at the news-just to say thanks Philip for this wonderful distro.It has been solid as a rock on my system for the past 4 years.

#8 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged » 2015-01-05 00:23:22

Just close the thread and move on.
# = great distro, great forums (just spend some time with some other distros and you will find how intolerant they can be).
Too much time is being given to trolls just winding everyone up.
For me the mods are doing a great job, just my opinion.

According to Corenominals website it was a dos attack.

#10 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Distro suggestion » 2014-10-20 14:08:32

You could also look at Antix MX 14.2- I tried it for a few weeks and found it to be one of the best debian Xfce distros,also very lightweight.

#11 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » How long have you been using Linux? » 2014-10-14 23:18:49

I started by buying a set of Mandrake CDs - next stop Ubuntu 4.10 back around 2005,then stayed with Ubuntu for probably 2/3 years.
Tried out Zenwalk,and then stayed awhile with Wolvix,which was a bit like #! but based on Slackware.
Then onto Pclinuxos - then Xubuntu - then Mint Xfce-Manjaro-then Peppermint.
I downloaded the first version of #! based on Ubuntu,but found openbox too basic at the time.
Moved onto Sabayon,then back to Mint Xfce - finaly back to #! when it moved to Debian.
I have been running#! now for a couple of years on my laptop and netbook,and just like the stability and that everything just works.
There have been several distros that have disappeared recently,I only hope #! can continue going forward as it is unique.

Speechless is what the Brazilans are at the moment.
Lots of parties happening where I live - they need to drink the beer and eat the meat bought for the victory that never happened.
Political fallout/riots will follow after the final.

Hi-I have downloaded the Deadbeef tar file and would like to know where I sould extract it to?


#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Remove Openbox and install XFCE » 2014-06-25 12:59:15

You could also try Antix MX-14-this distro is also very lightweight and comes with XFCE as standard.

#18 Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » USB Soundcard problem » 2014-06-03 13:39:23

Replies: 1

Hi-I recently purchased a Dacmagic xs to use for listening to music on headphones.My problem is that it doesnt always connect.Although this could be a problem with the product I think it is probably an issue with alsa or pulse audio not recognising it as an alternative soundcard.
Yesterday for example I connected the usb after booting and it was detected immediately and worked fine-this morning no connection.
Is there something that needs to be edited in the alsa base conf?
I also have a Behringer dac and it works alway without problem.

Hi-I thought I would just post to say that one more old netbook has been resurrected using Crunchbang.
I am visiting friends in Portugal and they had a hp mini netbook that was heading for the scrapheap as windows just wouldnt start.
They asked if I could try to put a Linux system on it-I run Crunchbang on my laptop and netbook,but was worried it might be a bit too sparse for someone from Windows.I tried Peppermint,Lubuntu,Xubuntu,and Manjaro but they all had problems with the wi-fi so a no go for my friend.
I put Crunch on+xfce but the touchpad was very erratic and I didnt have time to start trying to sort out synaptic problems.
I then put standard Crunch on with Openbox-problem solved!-the only downside for my mate his that his 9 year old daughter has taken over the netbook as it is "cool" and is much quicker than what she is used to.
Kids pick things up so quick,after one day she was already asking me how to use sudo,and she loved the keypad shortcuts.
Nice one Crunchbang.

#20 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Any problems with DAC's » 2014-02-05 14:52:00

Thanks for the reply gutterslob.I will proably go for the Behringer- I was worried about its low price,but having read a review from nwavguy it looks like its good enough for what I need(listening to flac music files through headphones and music system).

#21 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Any problems with DAC's » 2014-02-04 22:36:10

Hi-has anyone used the audioengine D1 audio interface,or the focusrite scarlett 212 ??
I am also looking at improving the sound of my netbook  and am between these 2 at the moment.
I was also looking at the Behringer uca202, but it looks a bit too good to be true for the price.
