Upgraded > Crunchbang-10 Statler "Xfce" to Waldolf and beyond ...

Just last week, I formatted the hard-drive, including all partitions.  I had 9 Linux OS-distro partition? I swiped the hard-drive entirely.

I found a (3-4 yrs old) USB thumb-drive that said, "#!-X".  To my hearts delight, I found out it had an ISO installed though Unetbootin > #!Crunchbang-10 Statler-Xfce

I installed my 1st partition, on a 'clean' hard-drive, with #!Statler-Xfce version, about a week ago.

It installed without problems. Looked around a bit and made a complete testing of the desktop, menu, apps - all OK.  Procede.

I followed the 'cb-welcome' in the terminal.   apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
I updated Crunchbang-10 Statler without problems - although, the Xfce (4.8.0) desktop, the kernel (2.26.32) and several or all Apps needed upgrading?

After that, I installed "squeeze+backports" repros.  All OK.
Debian-Squeeze is still "old" Stable and well supported.

Then, I set out to install the new Debian-7 Wheezy repros and +backports. 
All OK.  No problems, again.

I now have #!Crunchbang-11 Wheezy "Xfce" version with Xfce-4.11.8 and 3.16.4 kernel

Wheezy over the 'original' Squeeze  (Waldolf over Statler)  =  #!Crunchbang-11 Wheezy



**When Jessie/Jessica becomes 'stable' next Spring '15 -- I plan on upgrading #!-x again.

Congrats! But xfce4 4.11? wheezy's at 4.8, jessie and sid at 4.10.

-edit- I see xfwm4 4.11 is in experimental, is that what you meant? If so, how do you like it? And if that's the case, you might consider pulling the 3.17 kernel from experimental as well. I'm running jessie/xfce4.10.1 and the 3.17 kernel and everything's fine here..

I am a Dev/Tester for Xfce DE ... 'testing' has its advantages
Basically, I squash 'bugs' for the new Xfce-4.12  (not yet released)

I upgraded my kernel to > 3.17.6-1 (yesterday)

I tried something similar a few months ago, and failed.  This gives me motivation to try again.  #! Xfce was my favorite.

Re: Upgraded > Crunchbang-10 Statler "Xfce" to Waldolf and beyond ...

I did it yesterday ... to #! Animal (SID), it worked perfect.
1.  Installed #! Waldorf on sda6 & sda7
2.  DID NOT let cb-welcome run ...
3.. Changed sources.list to SID - comment out #! and Security repos
4.. then I did a:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --no-install-recommends

and ±900 updates later I had #! Animal

5.  ran

sudo apt-get autoremove --purge

added the few programs I wanted to test ... they didn't work ... do I wiped the partition.

So yes, it is totally doable. wink
Why wipe it - #! Waldorf does everything I want/need and I like the stability.

As for getting Xfce4 in there ... once it's running just install it:

    $ sget xfce4
alias sget = sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends --simulate

    $ 

Which really shouldn't add that much as some xfce4 elements already exist in #!:

i A libxfce4ui-1-0
i A libxfce4util-bin
i A libxfce4util-common
i A libxfce4util4
i A xfce4-mixer
i A xfce4-notifyd
i A xfce4-panel
i A xfce4-power-manager
i A xfce4-power-manager-data
i A xfce4-screenshooter
i A xfce4-volumed

EDIT: But I must add - vrkalak, your trip from v10 to v11 to testing with Xfce4 is quite interesting.  Good luck.
