Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Dell Dimension 3000

Celeron 2.4 GHz
80 G hard drive
19-inch LCD monitor

Running both Wheezy/Scrotwm (in one set of partitions) and Sid/Openbox (in another set) with a shared data partition. It all fits and runs nicely on this old machine. I paid $30 for it at a computer recycler.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Still have sid running on the Dell Dimension 3000, but now I also have 64-bit testing running on an HP dc-5750 Athlon X2 box, 4 GB RAM, 160 G hard drive. Default is scrotwm, but also have JWM and Openbox.

The Dell boots faster than the HP...

Everything running fine from the start. Poor performance with the integrated SIS Mirage graphic. Switch to Nvidia, and after updating drivers situation was much better.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Just received my new ThinkPad 13" Ultra-Thin Laptop yesterday.

Had to open Windows-7 for a few minutes, to make a System Restore Disk for it and to shrink the partitions.

Put my 2 favorite OS-distros on it:  Crunchbang (Debian/Openbox) and Archbang (Arch/Fluxbox)

My main laptop is Lenovo T400 14.1" 1440x900, 2.4Ghz c2d P8600, 8GB ddr3, 160GB intel ssd, intel wired & wireless, ericsson 3g mobile networks, gps chip, integrated usb2.0 and usb3.0 on expresscard. Usually sits in dock attached to various external drives, network drives, kb/mouse and Eizo S2110W display.

Other laptop for serving as tinkering testbed is IBM T40 1.6GHz Pentium-M, 160GB hd, 512Mb ddr, intel wired and wireless network. I also run irssi and mpd on it.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Custom Build: Built to be a low power, near silent box for learning Linux.

Mainboard: ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe
Processor: AMD E-350 APU (integrated on mainboard)
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD6310 (integrated in APU)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 2x4GB DDR3 1333mhz
HD: Kingston HyperX 120GB Sata III SSD
Sound: ALC892 8-Channel HD audio (integrated )- headphones worked in rear output, hdmi sound not tested, NuForce icon uDAC2 detected as GYROCOM C&C using USB Audio driver - working fine
Network: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B Gigabit (integrated on mainboard), Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (integrated on mainboard), Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit (PCI-E add in card)
Optical Drive: none
Screen: Now running Dell 2408WFP over HDMI and Dell 2407WPF over DVI Xinerama with Catalyst drivers
Other: Matrix Orbital MOU-AV202 (20x2 vacuum florescent display) - works with ftdi_sio driver shows up as ttyUSB0


Everything I care about seems to work out of box, Wireless detects my AP but I haven't actually used it, Sound working on NuForce icon uDAC2, headphones worked out of rear of integrated audio but only with vlc (obviously a config issue on my part)

System is light and fast.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I recently bought a new desktop that is running Debian Wheezy. It is defiantly overkill but I got a while ago during a clearance sale on refurbished computers, it cost less than most new nettops.

Lenovo k330b (I normlally build my desktops but the price was too good to pass up)
Core i3-2100
8gb ram
1tb hard drive
DVD drive
Integrated Graphics (Intel HD 2000)
Ethernet, HDMI and reads pretty much any and all media cards

Comments: Everything works out of the box with no end user tweaking of any kind. After updating to the latest kernel NDSIwrapper was used to keep wifi working with that bastard Broadcom. Media keys (volume control and all that) don't work but only because I never used them and am uninterested in tweaking my keymapping. Did I mention that the default #! look complements the grey palm-rest of the Mini 10v eerily well?

Forums are boring, drinking is awesome.
