Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

I remember looking at this thread and was blown away at how you guys optimized. Here is my shot

eqwdA1ws.png

87MB with crunchbang forums loaded!

I have a new appreciation for #! which makes this goal way too easy, the lazy man's sub 100 smile

  • purge slim -> .xinitrc

  • disable bluetooth

  • urxvt

  • i3

  • dwb (newly discovered, awesome!)

I also ended up doing this at work on our cruddy 3GB dell towers to squeeze a 1GB windows VM + pidgin, irc, music, lots-o-chrome tabs.

And I never knew #! forums had such sexy responsive layouts, great exercise all around.

Be excellent to each other!

Will that setup work with a VM? Do you have an iso or by any chance know which option to check and which to not.

Yes, that was done in virtualbox

Really the steps bullet points I outlined are all it took, but you should be comfortable with no login manager, a WM besides openbox and understand a little about the processes that are starting up.

I would highly recommend running through an archlinux install a few times.  I'm still a beginner, but it really helped me grasp the lower levels of ramping up a full desktop environment from scratch

Then when you come back to #!, you get to go in the opposite direction (uninstalling things, tweaking the startup). #! is already ~120MB idle out of the box, so you have pretty much the best start possible.

Aha, I think I found my problem then, I was looking for a tiny tiny version and  then adding more to it, Didn't even think about going in the opposite direction!

Atho, I need VMware Tools , and that needed me to download 110ish mb of perl realted things to compile and install it.
It's currently an ugly 3gb mess! I only installed pidign, vmware tools, drop box and a few others!

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

3GB is a mess? smile  I'd say that's pretty damn good while retaining most of the stock packages and adding your dropbox files and a few other things.  My pretty stock vm is sitting at 2.4GB atm.  Definitely care more about the memory, disk space is abundant in my scenario.

Hahaha, Well it's better and faster than windows, not managed to get it to hang yet either.
Im getting an 8/16gb pen drive and was just wanting to save some space wink
The pendrive is pricey however awesome, and another layer of security that I don't mind at all;

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Wow, Just tried the opensuse online builder and got this far:

http://s8.postimg.org/e60etzx1x/screenie.jpg

332 Packages, I can't imagine how many of them I'd actually need for:

Pidigin OTR
Ice weasle (Or any other lightweight browser)
OpenVPN
Kate/Geany (anything similar)

I can imagine that needs a few packages, but the "Minimalist" install is 240 MB download, 790 MB uncompressed, 4 GB Virtual disk
That seems an awful lot, I wouldnt know what packages to remove! Will have a play anyhow, but I think crunch is better suited for my needs.

23 Mb is indeed VERY low, just can't beat that  hmm  The lowest I ever had was 25 Mb with Debian 5 without any DE/WM, just using CLI.

Currently, since some MAJOR additions, I've gone way over that.  I couldn't get it to do all that I wanted while keeping it so sparse. sad

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Anyone sharing any of these sub 100's in ISO or VMWARE format?

I have attempted to make my own but didn't do too well, also I need VMWARE tools, and to install that I was unsure of what dependencys I needed i.e. perl etc.


Thanks Guys

Gentoo or LFS is the clear way to pull ahead in the game.  Still, I think it should be allowed.  I was using Sid and the 3.8.1 Kernel.  They let me play, so I approve your entry. big_smile

CRUX is also very light, even running Fluxbox.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Is this just about how low the RAM meter reads after you boot?  Mine shows 68MB.  Custom kernel, no kernel modules needed to boot.  Fully functional system, only nm-applet and volume control loaded at that point.  Normal daemons running.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

^^Very nice Pidsley.

It looks like you've beat me out by a few Megs of RAM. big_smile  Kernel compilation is a beast, and I'm still not sure it's worth the trouble.

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Still playing with the Atom board. Trying the latest kernel from Experimental, running iceape, mocp, and urxvt in cwm. Still under 100M, and this install is pretty snappy.
