Why do I use #!Crunchbang?
After Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface, I found myself without a "distro home." I jumped distros for a while and eventually settled on ArchLinux. I was happy with it, but found that I end up having to reinstall my OS quite a bit due to system upgrades etc. I recently put a solid state drive in my laptop and had to reinstall my OS again ( I was using Linux Mint)
I installed #! because I wanted the low resource pieces of arch and the stability and familiarity of debian. So far it has been a great experience.
I mostly use my system for development. A little bit of Kernel hacking and some Android development. So far #! has worked great!
Just installed Waldor

Edit: Also, how do I close this topic since it is solved?
Thanks for the reply and suggestions FiniteStateMachine, but I'm leaning towards anonymous's suggestions.
I'll try the solution posted in the link and mark as solved if it helps. Here's an updated picture of my compy when it's really wacked out. http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/6006 … 81024x.png
I recently installed crunchbang on a dell c400 laptop. I've been getting some really weird graphics problems. I know that it's not the hardware because I had ubuntu installed and everything looked great. After I've been running my computer for a while, icons from my tray start appearing all over my desktop. Sometimes my fonts begin to blur out or my desktop gets lots of weird lines through it. I tried reconfiguring my xserver settings, but that didn't help. Does anybody know what could be causing this?
Thanks a lot, I appreciate any responses.
I attached a screenshot to show the problems, I'll post more of some of the serious stuff later.
