#1 Re: Development » Sub-alpha BunsenLabs netinstall script » 2015-08-07 02:13:25

Hey guys,  sorry I am confused.  Maybe it's just too late for me in the day, but I don't seem to be able to figure out whether installing via the netinstall script method is still a viiable option or if people should just go with the .iso alpha files? Also in what way does the repository work with the netinstall or does the netinstall still build a local repository and builds packages locally?

I want to continue my PPC efforts with bunsenlabs, but of course the .iso won't work for that purpose.

I sincerely hope this question was not asked before, if it did my apologies.

@Head_on_a_Stick:  Thank you for the refracta info.  I will try that.  I just picked up an old G4 powerbook up for $25, which is easier to work with then the big G5.

Anybody got an idea when the first Bunsenlabs install scripts are out?  Also are there any other PPC user on the forum that could try a build that I make?

#4 Re: Ideas & Suggestions » BunsenLabs on PPC? » 2015-04-30 00:28:00

@tknomanzr:  I will for sure look into the Debian Live Manual.  Would it be otherwise possible to maybe link to a jessie netinstall and then provide an install script that one would just have to run from the terminal?

As you can probably tell I am still quite the new linux user, but I do like challenges smile

Hey there,
I'm using #! right now on an older Dell computer, but was just given an "old" Apple G5 Power Mac for free and will want to play use it as a secondary Linux install for sure.

I found this article about installing Debian Jessie on PPC and was wondering how hard it would be to turn that into BunsenLabs or if the developers might even be interested in having a BunsenLabs PPC iso? … art-i.html

If nothing else I will try to build Wally on it.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks! smile

@spacex:  Looking forward to the 32bit image, as my old machine does not like 64 bit stuff.

#7 Re: News & Announcements » The end. » 2015-03-03 09:41:59

Hey LancelotOcelot,  as many mentioned you can continue using this distro for quite a while.  Wheezy still gets security updates, you can update the repos to Jessie or sid.  Search the forum for instructions.

Welcome to the community.

#8 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo! » 2015-02-07 02:32:30

How about this Distro is "Bang On" ?

Or "The Animal Crunch"?

#9 Re: News & Announcements » The end. » 2015-02-07 02:27:21

8.(   A sad day for me.  I just started using Linux and have found the community really really helpful.  Thank you to all the moderators and contributors to this forum.  Can't wait for the Sparkle Dancer!!!

Thank you corenominal for a great Linux experience. This distro will be missed.  Kinda sad to see The Linux Outlaws go and now Crunchbang as well.

Hey everybody,

I heard this vulnerability mentioned in multiple podcasts and also saw it in the following link. … hel-linux/

Is there a way to fix this in Crunchbang yet?  I did the steps from the linked page  ( clean, update, upgrade), but I am not sure if this fixed the issue.

How did you guys fix this problem and is it even fixable in Crunchbang 11?

#11 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » had to go lubuntu.... » 2015-01-31 16:25:56

Hi schwim, I'm a Linux noob, but doesn't the stable debian release go to old stable and will be get security fixes for another year?  Wouldn't that mean CB 11 to be secure until about 2016?

#14 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Using iceweasel to access Office 365 » 2014-12-20 01:20:06

Are you running the latest Iceweasel? There is a backport for it.  There is a sticky about this somewhere on the forum here.

You could try another Browser, like Chrome or Chromium....

#15 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How to get involved? » 2014-12-16 23:01:09

On another note,  Corenominal has not completely abandoned us, as this forum and the website are still running.  Also he is still very active on his private website:

Hey just posted an interesting link about him liking a new art proposal for Debian jessie:

He also added this screenshot from his own computer:

#16 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How to get involved? » 2014-12-16 22:50:31

Thanks Damo,  I will look into this at some point, for now I think I'll just stay on #! as is smile

#17 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » How to get involved? » 2014-12-16 21:53:21

Hey guys,  I'm very new to Linux and to #!, but I thought I would give my thoughts to this story.

@Common Sense:  I know where you are coming from.  Seeing active development for any software helps to keep people feeling safe for the future. 

As one person mentioned Crunchbang in its current state should be okay security wise until 2016, when it is no longer OldStable.  I personally wouldn't mind the look and feel of Crunchbang with an updated kernel and repos.  Since you are talking about this, Common Sense could you guide me/us to a how to on how to do this ourselves or write a how to?

I use #! on an old Dell Laptop D630 with only 2GB of RAM and it runs better than newer computers I own, so that speaks for the stable current version of the software.  It works for all my email, browsing, and occasional youtube video needs.

@Alad:  will check out all the stickys from your signature now. Thank you!

#18 Re: Introductions » Hello! » 2014-12-16 18:10:20

Welcome to #!  Nice to see #! on a new machine.  Did you run into any problems installing on new hardware?

A  question that also came into my head right away is "do you still use the eepc?"

Again hello from a real linux n00b, who is happy to here.

#20 Re: Introductions » Hello Community » 2014-12-14 20:29:14

Hey welcome to #!.  Sorry can't help you with the code, I'm a noob myself.  The only thing I see is that most keybinding would have "Super + lower case letter".  Otherwise you will have to press Super + Shift + w  in order to get your hotkey to work.

.... maybe smile

#21 Re: Introductions » Hello! » 2014-12-08 22:58:27

I only drink tea, do you have that as well?  Hello from another noob smile

#22 Re: Introductions » Would just like to say » 2014-12-08 22:56:27

Welcome Jonboy!!!  I like the no nonsense interface of #!.

Hello from another noob.  8o  8o

#23 Re: Introductions » Hello from Nova Scotia » 2014-12-06 15:02:47

Thank you for the warm welcome!

@Head on a Stick:  Yeah that would be my worry that other more experimental solutions might not work as well.  Also this old laptop restricts what one can or should install.

Now off to use the search bar on how to install wine..... and playonlinux.....   big_smile

#24 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Laptops » 2014-12-06 02:54:10

I use #! with a Dell D630 from 2007.  Works great.

Hey Everybody,

StrangeCrunch here.  This is my first time running Linux on a computer apart from Ubuntu 14 on a virtual machine and that was way too slow.

I am in normal live a mac user, but my wife has been using my 2012 mac more and more these days.  I received an old 2007 Dell D630 from work for free and installed Crunchbang on it.  I runs faster than my Mac when browsing and doing emails.

Anyway loving the #! experience and am now not feeling so bad about not having the mac all the time anymore.

I have been reading a lot on the forum before registering and it seem that a lot of you guys started with #! and now moved on, but stayed for the community.  Why did you guys (sorry girls included) move on or why did you stay on?
