Hi #!

Ok first off the bat I should say this - I am not so much a crunchbang user as I am a crunchbang admirer (sounds weird). I have a laptop that requires distros with kernel 3.8 and above and wont boot #! otherwise it would be on here (I used Manjaro Openbox as an alternative - not perfect but what can you do?). Beyond that I have a really good stationary computer where #! may not come to its fullest right - so... instead I kinda just envy you guys from afar.

I'm simply here to introduce myself - I'm lurking the forums, reading your posts, checking your tint2 and Conky configs and all in all enjoy being here so why not?

What keeps my deep attraction to #! alive is beyond the aesthetics of it (I love it), the "feel" of it. More precisely these forums, the community behind it, the nice attitude from members and admins and the kind and wonderful way you seem to treat newcomers. You guys rock and perhaps its just me (I think there are more like me though) but you guys here should really pat yourself on the back for being your distros greatest asset and one of its "selling points" (couldn't come up with a better term for it, sorry).

So just keep up the brilliant work! You guys rock. I will continue lurking in the shadows and if one of you know a what to create an install-usb with kernel 3.9 in it - tell me wink

Couldn't have said it better myself!

If your looking for a similar openbox experience with a newer kernel you could try Archbang linux.

On behalf of the moderation team and the community in general, all I have to say is "Aw, shucks." 8o  Now that you're here, the community is even 20% cooler.

Re: Hi #!

Hello ohyran, welcome to the Crunchbang family.  There is already a pretty sweet way to get a Crunch-like with Siduction.

That's 3.9.+ for the uninitiated. wink

Re: Hi #!

Welcome to the community, ohyran.  I know of a way to install CrunchBang with a 3.9 kernel.  You could track the backports repo or the unstable repo.  The backports repo currently has kernel 3.9-0 and the unstable repo currently has kernel 3.9-1.

07/11/2013-01 edit:  My suggestion is assuming that you can install CrunchBang 11 to begin with.  If not, then my suggestion probably wouldn't work.

Re: Hi #!

Thanks all! big_smile

I tried the Darkside-version but it too had allot of problems getting up to snuff on the laptop (the keyboard wasn't recognized at all for some great reason) so I had to stick with Mint 15 XFCE and theme it like I would have Crunchbang (not the same but what can you do?).
But after allot of thinking about it I installed it on the big computer - even though I thought it may not be the best fit. So now I have a "legit reason" to lurk! big_smile

(I tried adding the Sid repos to it and then I installed the 3.9 kernel and the newer Krita (which is that one single thing I need on it for work beyond Gimp, a working internetconnection and maybe Inkscape)

Re: Hi #!

You might also take a look at the LinuxBBQ Darkside64 roast:

http://linuxbbq.org/wordpress/linuxbbq- … e64-amd64/

Just understand that all of the LinuxBBQ roasts track Debian Sid/Unstable, so are not recommended for new Linux users.

Re: Hi #!

Thanks Krunchtime - its the same that DebianJoe suggested above - the tricky part is that it wont recognize my keyboard on the laptop for some incredible reason (I really really wish I knew why but there ya go). Sid is more my kind of melody I think and borking or no - I've so far managed to handle the few little sputters that turned up (knock on wood). smile
