Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I know very little about my current computer. My old lappy died in a little tea accident.

Anyway I needed new (or used) computer fast and with little money (as I am poor student) and now I have two years old office computer - Compaq Evo. And #! works, woot!

In plans I have getting more ram (atm 512mb) and another HD (atm 40gb).
It has Intel sticker and had XP pr sticker but not anymore wink

HANNA (without "h" in the end) likes green and #! smile
Also know as ultraturquoise online


Help fund CrunchBang, donate to the project!

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Expanded upon the sig:

Mini 9 with 2GB RAM, 16GB SDD, 2GB SD Card
Gateway MX6427(?) - 1.7GHz Athalon, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD

The gateway is a 1/2 laptop and 1/2 in-progress-server thats connected to a 320GB External HDD that will function as a media server for the house, and a backup laptop when I need one.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Just the standard. Asustek 900A Best Buy edition eee PC. For those who don't know: 1.6GHZ Atom, 4GB Phison SSD, 1GB RAM, 1024x600 screen, GMA950. All the power of as lowly Tualatin Mobile ~1GHZ P3, but it's still snappier than most new Vista desktops. I think CPU + disk subsystem speed is now irrelevant for casual computing, and keyboard + screen quality play a much larger role in increasing business/academic productivity.

Screen:  26" Belinea LCD, 1900x1200

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Experiment machine: Rebuilt compaq evod510 with case hacksawed open to fit an ATI 9200 video card! 1.5gb 3200 (running at 2100). P4 2.4 ghz. Runs through TV. Works fine although not sure how effective 'radeon' driver is..

Laptop: Samsung Q210 Core2 duo 2ghz - Purrs like a kitten. Nvidia drivers.

Also ran smoothly on an old SiS 962 mobo with a Celeron 2.4 (before I fried it due to constant tinkering/swapping cpus)

Favourite distro.

Have installed fail2ban and Guarddog for security...

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I'm afraid I just can't go half-way with anything... I was running F10 rather nicely; everything working, but there always seemed to be two of this app, two of that app. I was looking for a distro that wasn't so loaded down with 'stuff' that it plodded along. And something that didn't want to follow the 'pretty' norm a la Windows. Or Gnome, and especially not KDE. Enter #!, which now happily resides on my desktop:

Name:  4-year old home-built
Mobo:  Asus M2NPV-VM
Processor:  AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+
Screen:  19" Samsung 953BW
RAM:  4GB Corsair DDR2 800
HDD: 120GB Seagate SATA, 80GB Seagate SATA
Optical Drives:  Sony DVDRW, Sony CDRW
Graphics:  nVidia GeForce 6150
Sound:  nVidia
Network:  10/100/ nVidia, 10/100 Dlink
Other:  3 x USB2.0, 1 x Firewire, Fingerprint Reader, Card Reader

Perhaps it's time to 'upgrade' my lappy as well; Lenovo T61p, 15.4, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB, nVidia graphics, 500GB SATA (2 drives), still running F10


Linux - because a PC is a terrible thing to waste...

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Haven't installed yet, but I've tested it on my old PC via LiveCD, and I'm loving it big_smile !!

Will install once #! reaches 9.04 Final on (most info from the Sysinfo and Hardinfo packages -- try and see if you guys can install it yourselves big_smile !!):

Name:  Compaq Deskpro EN (from the Win2k days/ 2000)
Processor:  Intel Pentium 3 Coppermine @ 1.0 GHz, 400 Mhz FSB, 256MB L2 cache
Screen:  15" CRT Monitor (dunno specifics)
HDD:  40 GB (pretty sure its 5400 RPM ATA)
Optical Drive: Lite-On Combo SOHC-4832K + Compaq CD-ROM LTN485 (both are probably stock models)
Graphics: GeForce2 MX/MX 400 AGP 4x 64MB RAM
Sound:  Intel 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller (integrated audio, not the best but I can work with it)
Network:  Intel 82801BA/BAM/CA/CAM Ethernet, ZyXEL ZyAIR G-220v2 (its a desktop, but its too much of a hassel to set of wired across rooms wink -- though I think its on a USB 1.1 interface )

Comments:Currently running Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex. But since GNOME 2.24 isn't running as smoothly as I would like, I was looking for an alternative. Was considering Arch Linux or Xubuntu, but when I found #! and compared it to other light environments, I think I fell in love big_smile !! Will wait until #! 9.04 Final gets released to install. Until then, I'll play with the LiveCD and try and get used to OpenBox's environment wink .

I also have a more modern (but aging as every year passes...) PC that I'm tweaking like crazy as of now, running WindowsXP SP3 Pro with a P4 2.8 GHz and 2GB Ram. Here are the specs of my Windows XP machine: … happy-dude (using the DriverMax program-- really nifty freeware, try it wink -- think Linux will have such a service?) I'm going to keep Windows XP on it, but I dunno my plans for the future for it... Like when my dear WinXP becomes unsupported... Maybe dual boot it with Linux distros and Windows 7+ one day in the future wink ?

New on this forum since I installed Cruncheee on my EEE 901.

On my other computer I'm still running windows to use Lightroom, maybe when Bibble 5 will be totally operable I would switch completely on linux.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Two boxes (installing a third), plus 3 VMs:

Machine 1: Dell GX280
Intel P4 3.4GHz
ATI graphics (not sure which one off the top of my head)

Machine 2: Apple Macbook (1,1)
2.0GHz Core Duo
Intel GMA950 Graphics

Machine 3: Dell Mini 9 (once I get my USB drive formatted properly)
1.6GHz Atom
Intel GMA950 Graphics

Plus, as I mentioned, 3 barebones VMs with ~10Gigs of disk and 256MB of RAM. Such a great distro... smile


Be excellent to each other!

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

HP Mini 1033CL,
Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz,
1024MB RAM,
10.2" WSVGA,
Ethernet 10/100,

Tri boot of #!, Kubuntu, XP

Handful of SDHC (c 6) cards each with different Linux distros

#! is my official netbook OS while I use OS X for everything else (I can almost hear the mocking undertones)

Anyway, everything runs pretty smooth on the Mini 1000 - took only a bit of tweaking. Love the distro. Only started using it a week ago. Serves all my mobile needs with the exception of my security related necessities at which time I boot BackTrack from an SDHC.

One problem to cite: Playing video in the browser (Firefox) is dismal. Do I need to install a proprietary driver for the video card? Any ideas? I know the hardware can handle it because video runs like a charm in the browser under XP. Have yet to try and play video from the internal HD which might produce more information about which route I take to remedy the issue.

And to the developers: My hats off to yeh'. You contrived a great OS here and I do regard my expectations as rather high. Cheers.
