Well before the first ban you were blatantly trolling dizzie, and then when asked to stop you continued to make dumb remarks. The reason for time period between the trolling and the original ban is because there were conversations between other operators who agreed to ban you. It was not a one man decision. Also on the rules page:  "Please do not post your issues in a thread as that will be ignored or deleted.  A PM is the only method of discussion as it is a private matter."

Dumb remarks? Is that right? What dumb remarks were those? Where's the rules page? Do the rules include banning people without letting them know the reasons?

Done. And the reason why I posted the logs was to show I had not done anything in the channel that warranted a banning, and that I was not given a reason for the banning. In both cases.

I don't know what this dude's problem is, but somehow I think repeatedly banning people without even giving a reason is NOT the type of moderator that properly represents the spirit of the CrunchBang community. I would kindly ask for explicit clarification on what exactly dizzie's problem with me is and what the reason for my repeated banning is, please? I don't think this is how an IRC mod should operate, but that's up to whoever made him one in the first place. I'm sick and tired of this, and it amounts to harassment. Please unban me and please stop this.

Here is a log of #crunchbang-offtopic from yesterday up until today when I was kicked from the channel and banned:

jmad2011, were you banned under another name? Neither your nick or a recognizable hostmask are in the ban list. jmad2011 is registered but nickserv says it hasn't logged in since November of last year. Message me your hostmask or you can query me on freenode and we'll figure out why you're banned.

But why was I banned in the first place??

Nevermind. It turned out I don't even have any bluetooth on my netbook.  sad

#13 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » [Retired] HOWTO: Bluetooth » 2013-02-18 13:18:03

This thread seems to have outdated info on getting bluetooth to work? I'm using the latest Waldorf on my hp mini. I first tried using the Debian Bluetooth User guide but that didn't get me anywhere. Couldn't get the bluetooth icon to show up in the tray and hcitool dev command returns no devices. Installing blueman doesn't help either, running blueman-assistant tells me "No adapters found".

And trying the guide in this thread fails for me at the very first command:

$ sudo apt-get install bluez-gnome bluetooth gnome-bluetooth
[sudo] password for dayo: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package bluez-gnome is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'bluez-gnome' has no installation candidate

Does anybody have an updated guide to getting bluetooth up and running in Waldorf?

In addition to  set "Skip H.264 in-loop deblocking filter" to "All" I also installed libavcodec53. If you are still having issues despite the vlc setting, try installing libavcodec53 as well.

#15 Re: CrunchBang Talk » How do you backup your computers? » 2012-05-27 15:31:51

Every now and then I rsync the home dir of my netbook to an external 1TB Seagate.

$ rsync -aEPhu --delete-excluded ~ /path/to/1tb

And when I reinstall my netbook I just run the same command in the other direction, without the --delete-excluded. :-)

#18 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Crunchbang Hell - A True Story » 2012-05-25 15:42:03

However, it doesn't work because I only have the #! CD and no image. No problem I thought; it's easy to make an image. I open up Xfburn but it keeps giving me an error, telling me it can't mount my cd drive. I decided to install K3b, which I know works. The problem is that I've just moved into a new house and I'm still waiting for the phone company to move my ADSL line to my new address.

I usually use the terminal to create images from CDs/DVDs.

$ cat /dev/sr0 > /path/to/destination/image/file.iso

Notice the /dev/sr0, this is your optical drive's device name. To find out what your drive's device name is, run this command:

$ dmesg | grep -i dvd

You're looking for the string right after the numbers in brackets. in my case, it's sr0:

[     1.239160] sr0: scsi-3-mmc drive: 48x/12x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

One of the pre -post or install scripts for the package is probably testing on $(lsb-release -d) output to determine for which distro the package is being installed, and crunchbang does not figure among the distroes know to this script.

It is possible that the script did not do some debian-specific install steps which it would have done on a genuine debian install. Try to find the script(s) and check if it does. Mail the results to user corenominal if you do. Thanks for your cooperation.


Where do I find the script(s)? I just lessed through the postgresql packages in /var/cache/apt/archives and couldn't seem to find anything relating to this.

While installing  postgresql postgresql-client postgresql-doc on CrunchBang Statler r20110207, I got this warning message:

Setting up postgresql-common (113) ...
supported_versions: WARNING! Unknown distribution: CrunchBang
Please submit this as a bug report to your distribution.

Other than this message, the packages seem to have installed fine, though. Anybody else seen this before? I haven't upgraded to R20111125 yet. I hope to get round to that this weekend. Does this warning occur on R20111125 too?

The highest available pkg for me in synaptic with this method is a 1.10 backport. How do I get 2.0 on statler?

Try using a different USB stick. Whenever I install Statler from USB, I borrow a number of USB sticks from different people, because my 16GB USB refuses to boot Statler, but works fine with booting Mint. I've noticed that some USB sticks just don't work for me when it comes to USB-installing Statler on my HP Mini 210. No idea why, though. hmm
