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. 


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.

Dell Inspiron B130
1.5 GHz Intel Celeron M
1.0 GB RAM
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 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.]

Lenovo Ideapad S10e. Everything except the internal mic seems to work out of the box. Once I updated to the latest alsa 1.0.19 drivers the internal mic also started to work.

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).

Debian: II   Arch: II   openSUSE: I
