Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Name: Illume
Model: EeePC 701 4G
Processor: 900Mhz, downclocked to 630Mhz
Ram: 2GB
HDD: 4Gb SSD
Optical: External DVD-R/W
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 900 graphics processor, additional VGA port (up to 1600×1280 pixels)
Sound: Realtek ALC6628
Network: 10/100 Ethernet, Atheros Wireless, Bluetooth (MSI USB stick)
Other: 4Gb Class 6 SD Card

Comments: Works with both the standard Crunchbang and Cruncheee, although Cruncheee has issues with video playback (small skippings every 30 seconds or so). For Cruncheee, I used Riceeeytweak's commands selectively to fix the shutdown problem (just in case), make the system go into standby when the lid closes, and to create the overclock application. Bluetooth requires the standard apt-get install bluez-utils to allow the usage of passkeys, but that's Ubuntu, not Cruncheee. Boots up in about 47 seconds regardless of version (after editing GRUB's boot intervention window to one second), Wireless connection is instantaneous if previously recognised.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

crunch bang on asus eeepc model 701sd just as it is from factory. no upgrades or any fixes other than having replaced xandros with crunch bang. runs perfect. i play supertux and its way more fast on crunch bang than the default xandros install. i can also watch movies with out any problem. (a usb-dvd-writer thinghy  can be a blessing to plugin once in a while )

i have crunch bang on a older computer (not laptop) which has a celeron 700 mzh and 500 mb ram and 14 gigabyte harddisk. runs great but cant show video that well. its a bit too slow on that one. but i use it more for skype anyway so its great having. maybe the slowness has a bit to do with  the ram blocks not being the same or maybe it does something that its a old harddisk and i have two harddisk on the system since i dual boot with a debian installation on a 6 gigabyte harddisk. which is old and slow.

edit:
i forgot to mention i have crunch bang as a media center on my brand new computer. its an msi motherboard wiht an amd 2.000 mzh proccesor and 1052 mb  ram. i put in a hauppage nova -t tv card and it works great. its not a low spec computer and its not a very high end piece of computer hardware so i did not think it could have any interest in the first place to read about. i almost also forgot it since i consider that computer as a appliance suitable for wiewing movies and listing to music rather than a computer runnnig linux. i installed elisa media center package and a lot of cool games for my brother when he visits me and thats it.  but it works  great smile

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

System: ThinkPad T43 (2686DGU)
CPU: Pentium M 750 @ 1.86Ghz / 533Mhz
RAM: 2Gb
HDD: 120Gb ATA-100 (really just screwy IDE)
GPU: 64Mb ATI RADEON 300
Screen: 14.1" SXGA+ (1400x1050)
Wi-Fi: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200GB
Optical: DVD-R/W Ultra SlimDrive
Sound: AC'97 integrated, something or other

SXGA+ is really the killer feature and hard enough to find in a <5 Lbs model that I've upgraded the system instead of tossing it for a new one.

Functional out of the box w/ #! 8.10 but took a little bit of fooling around to get sound and keyboard map right.  Downside is that batter life is about 60-70% of what I was getting under windows.

Side notes for the thinkpad crowd:
I've got an after market fan in here that I installed a few months ago after the factory unit died.  I have not had any of the notorious fan problems with the new unit under #!.  The HDD and RAM aren't original.  I do get the Error 2010 on boot but I'm able to <Esc> past it without any problem.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Name: Custom build
Motherboard: ECS GeForce6100PM-M2
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
RAM: 2GB OCZ DDR2
HDD: 80GB Western Digital
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-S203B
Graphics: nVidia GeForce 6100 (integrated)
Sound: Realtek HD Audio
Network: nVidia MCP61 Ethernet
Monitor: 17" LCD

Comments: Install was very fast; just about 10 min. After install I noticed that CrunchBang was slightly offscreen, but installing the nvidia drivers fixed that. Everything is working fine except for my external drive  and my printer (not important). After all the tweaking, I must say Im very happy with it #! ^_^

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Machine #1 - my x86
Acer AspireOne 150, Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD
- less than 10 mins to install from USB big_smile
- works very well even with known netbook quirks
- daemons I don't need disabled

Machine #2 - made for aunt in her 50s
HP OmniBook XE3, Celeron 1066MHz, 256MB RAM, 60GB HDD
- took its sweet time installing from CD, more than 30 mins hmm
- half the RAM immediately eaten by daemons, swap kicks in when more than two apps in use

I have an EFIKA PowerPC board as well running Debian + Openbox (400MHz, 128MB RAM, 60GB HDD - 40 megs used when Openbox starts) but will probably go Slack + DWM on that one for greater speed.
I know #! isn't made for something like this, but I see that more as the fault of Ubuntu.

• 2,40 GHz , 4 MB L2-cache, 800 MHz FSB

•3 GB RAM
•fingerprintreader (fprint works)

Wlan works --now and then (Linux wlan support can improve a a lot). N-works maybe with ndiswrapper but in that case without any security or with WEP(?).

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I have another system which has #! on it for now (it's trial box now. I'm gonna use freeBSD on it next, though the #! HDD might stay safe)

I'll edit in details soon, I'm trying to find it all out. I know it's specs, but it's a production PC, and I can;t find the model number
