Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Installed #! on my favorite old Dell last night.  Long time Ubuntu user looking for a derivative with a little less overhead.  Old Dell is having trouble keeping up, but still gets most jobs done. 

Specs:

Dell Dimension V350 (circa 1999)
450 MHz (allegedly) Pentium II
384 MB RAM (maxed out)
40 GB Hard Drive 0 (Western Digital I think.  Not original.)
40 GB Hard Drive 1 (Seagate.  Not original)
CD / DVD ROM Drive (Original.  White Box.  Whatever Dell had in stock at that time.)
Yamaha CD Burner (Added circa 2000.  Pre-DVD burning era.)
Linksys PCI Wireless Card (Works almost immediately with most current *buntus.)

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I'm using a fairly old Dell laptop that came preloaded with XP, but runs even more snappily with Crunchbang.

Specs:
Dell Inspiron B130
1.5 GHz Intel Celeron M
1.0 GB RAM
40 GB HDD
Sony CRX850E CD/DVD Drive
Broadcom 4318 b/g Integrated Mini-PCI Wireless card (I believe there's a proprietary linux driver, but I'm using the Windows drivers under ndiswrapper)
Broadcom 440x Ethernet Controller - this is not working, help?

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Acer Aspire One here, same as previous posters. I upped the ram on this machine to 1.5Gb.

Everything works with CB, including bluetooth dongle. smile

richards.py is quite a useful benchmark by the way. It posts 1814ms on the Aspire which is pretty slow!

When I have time I will install CB on my sometimes dual core/sometimes quad core Shuttle, and repeat the richards benchmark.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Dear #!:ers!

My 1st post here. I installed #! 8.10.02 yesterday on a spare 50G partition of my 500G external HDD, having used mostly Ubuntu 8.04 & 8.10 so far (not to mention different versions of Windows, of which I finally grew very tired around last May, and some casual Mac usage — in any case, I have been using Linux for only about 9 months now — about time to give birth to something yet-unheard-of, I guess...), with Gnome, Fluxbox, XFCE4, and lately for the most part Openbox (also on an HP Compaq 6735S laptop). Such a user history is indeed a sort of gateway to CrunchBang.

The mentioned external drive is plugged onto the following antiquish machine:

Name: Compaq Evo D510 SFF
Processor: Intel Celeron 2.00GHz
Screen: Optiquest Q201wb (a cheap 22" widescreen LCD)
RAM: 512MB
HDD: 40GB internal HDD & 500GB Western Digital USB hard disk drive (see below*)
Graphics: Intel i835, if I remember correctly (hwinfo gives just "Compaq Evo D510 SFF"); buggy with latest kernels
Sound: Intel 82801DB/DBL/DBM (pretty OK, actually!)
Optical drives: internal CD-ROM & external Philips JR4DVDRW
& stuff: CanoScan LIDE 25 scanner, a bluetooth USB dongle, etc.

So far so good — the first few hours with CrunchBang have been sheer ecstasy (except for an Intel driver [?] bug I have previously encountered also with the basic Ubuntu 8.10: blank screen after logout, no GDM, have to drop into TTY1 and reboot to get a graphical login).

*) On the external 500GB USB drive I have also Ubuntu 8.10 installed with Gnome & Openbox, and a separate /home partition of ca. 200GB (to mention just the relevant stuff). [Deleted the rest of this post afterwards — it contained a rather silly question about mounting — which I solved by symlinking an automounted partition in my /home. Never mind, anyway.]

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I might have the oldest machine here. Thankfully, this is not my primary machine. smile

Hostname: boatanchor (Toshiba Tecra 8000)
Processor:  Intel Pentium 2 266MHz
Screen:  14" LCD (still looks good)
RAM:  192MB
HDD:  40GB
Graphics:  NeoMagic
Sound:  OPL3SA2
Ethernet: Linksys PCM100 PCMCIA 10/100
Wireless: 3Com PCMCIA AirConnect 802.11b 11Mbps
OS: CrunchBang Lite 8.10.02

I tried Kubuntu 8.10 on it, then realized that KDE4 was not fit for human consumption, then Xubuntu, but still found it a little bloated for the ancient hardware. In my hunt for something a little lighter-weight, I stumbled on #! Lite 8.10.02. Everything but sound and ACPI worked right out of the box (but I already knew that from using [KX]ubuntu). USB seems to only work when I modprobe -r ehci_hcd, so I need to do a blacklist in the modprobe.d directory somewhere. I also installed OO.o and vpnc on it so I can do most anything my Shuttle SN41/Kubuntu 8.04 box can do, just a little slower.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to use #! for a repository in an existing Xubuntu install? I am loving that Openbox/Conky setup and would love to install it on my work box (Xubuntu 8.10).
