Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Recently bought an old desktop for £30.

2.8GHz P4 with 1GB Ram, swapped IDE HDD over to my old 320GB, fitted a DVD/RW, & hooked it up to my 19" WTFT with built in speakers.

It did come with an 80GB XP HDD, but my 320GB already had #! Waldorf on it.  smile

Footnote: Interestingly enough, deactivating compositing has indeed increased response time on this workstation.
Wonder why I didn't think of this before? 8)

Fatmac: Agreed. If it already has Waldorf, why re-install what is readily available on another drive.
Me personally, once my new workstation does arrive, Crunchbang all the way and nothing else for me.
Though I'll be glad to get back to a 64bit version for sure before relegating this back to a media server.

Linuxephus™: Do also take heed that compositing will take it upon itself to autoreactivate if the line which invokes it in the script of autostarting is not suitably prefixed with a "#", thereby commenting it and effectively removing it from the autostart process...

Built my new desktop for work few weeks back and obviously the distro had to be #!

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I'm running Crunchbang 11 on my shiny new red laptop.

MODEL: Sony Vaio S13133CG
PROC: Intel i5 @ 2.6GHz
RAM: 12GB
HDD: 750GB SATA
OPTICAL: DVD RW+
SCREEN: 1366 x 768 backlit (13.3")
GRAPHICS: Dedicated NVIDIA card (currently turned off) plus Intel integrated
WORKING: Webcam, wifi, bluetooth, HDMI, VGA out, USB3, USB2

I'm getting five hours of (for me) normal use; writing code, browsing, email. This has doubled since I turned off the NVIDIA card in the BIOS. I have an extended sheet battery on order which will double the battery life, and I think with some further tweaking I should get a little more yet.

This is a step up from my eleven year old Vaio TR5GP, much as I loved it.


I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Thinkpad R60 with a 1.66GHz CoreDuo processor, and two 2 gig ram sticks.  It only supports 3 gigs of ram but, I had extra and I heard that it has a slight boost in performance because the sticks will work in dual channel.  Can anyone confirm that or is that crazy talk?

It's not such a great laptop... but it works. #! is super fast on it. However the cpu is 100% while playing videos which is really annoying... any ideas on how to give it a tiny boost?
