Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

I'm interested in a list of processes and packages that remain on your systems. It might be fun to look into the source and clean them up, then rebuild.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

@AlanD
I will come back to you on this with some detail.
Busy testing my Raspberry Pi at the moment (with PiBang linux) cool
I removed a lot of services using rcconf.
Most of the packages from Crunchbang Waldorf remain + some of the CLI apps mentioned in this thread.

@chameleon PiBang? I must have this. I love my raspi and want to treat it to the best.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

My #! is 64-bit, and so idles around 120Mb, but on this laptop I have plenty of memory to play with, so that's alright.
On my Debian stable system on my other laptop, I have seen 28Mb used on X11, with blackbox, bbkeys running and rxvt-unicode open. No conky, no panel, no dockapps, and not much else, though...

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

@joek
Wow 26MB impressive! cool
X must be using most of that...

Could you share what services you do have activated in rcconf?

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

sudo rcconf
[sudo] password for crunchbang: 
update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing
update-rc.d: warning:  start runlevel arguments (none) do not match bluetooth Default-Start values (2 3 4 5)
update-rc.d: warning:  stop runlevel arguments (0 1 2 3 4 5 6) do not match bluetooth Default-Stop values (0 1 6)

The rcconf warnings always get me...

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

I've never worried about those warnings; good to know that I'm justified.

@Chameleon - You've turned off anacron and cron? Isn't that, you know, widely thought of as a Bad Idea(tm)?

ETA: Okay, I have also turned off kbd, keyboard-setup, portmap, rsyslog, and bootlogs. Down to 25MB with X.
ETA2: Replaced blackbox with DWM. Down to 24MB. I must surely be reaching the limits of what Debian can do.
ETA3: Okay, started to mess about with recompiling kernels. Down to 23MB. Might do another kernel on the basis of 'if I don't know what it does, it's probably not all that important'... (Without X, 16Mb...)

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Shamelessly post-count increasing by bumping instead of editing the thread. The first version of the above mentioned 'cut out all the things' kernel brings mem use with X down to 22MB.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

1) I'm running Arch + DWM;

2) Consistently not using some ram is wastage;

3) Below 100 is nothing special really anyway;

But, at boot up, with all I need running (i.e. no weird rcconf omittance that render your machine pointless), and X going, I'm getting 75mb.

There is a strange anti-ram hangover from when machines had 512mb that endures today, even when some machines have a crazy 16gb ram. It's like anorexia.

My x121e is the fastest it has ever been though. smile

More important kind of consumption is watts: I get 2.9w baseline.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Well, yeah. The silliness of my 22Mb with X mentioned above is with an old laptop with its memory maxed out at 512Mb of RAM. Firefox is such a memory hog that this actually improves the user experience. With my main laptop, on Waldorf, I really don't pay anything like the same amount of attention to trimming off memory use...

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Pleased to see there is still interest in the SUB100 club  cool
Please be reminded that this is for experiments only and I would not recommend these actions on a production machine.
More to come in the future I hope....

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

So they have no point? What's the point of reducing memory consumption if it is not going to contribute to production efficiency?

For the sake of learning is a reasonable reason I guess.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Running a vanilla Statler on my EeePC : 68Mb with everything started (out of 1Gb RAM).

Once IceWeasel is loaded I climb over 100Mb, of course ;-)
