I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

I have this now, but I read a comment here "https://jschueths.wordpress.com/2014/04 … t-release/" saying "Janice repository for CrunchBang is empty, so “deb http://packages.crunchbang.org/janice janice” is completely useless. If you want to use cb- packages you must keep waldorf line here."

Also I need help with my preferences file. 

This is what I have

Be excellent to each other!

Comment out the janice repo and remove the preference pinning. Backup important data and prepare3 for breakage...

I got stuck on some errors and keyring stuff so decided to be less ambitious...

I'll try upgrading Firefox once I get Janice working.

Re: I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

Wow I fell waaay down the rabbit hole and ended up with a blank blue-gray screen of death.

I thought that was it, toasted machine.

Control-Alt-1 got me to a command prompt LOL.  (Learned something new.)

Then I tried dozens of commands, rebooting rebooting rebooting, hardware beep beep beep every time!

This is 4am *crunch* *bang*

What was I thinking?  Anyway, nothing was working and I kept hearing about "Sid" so I did this...

## CRUNCHBANG

deb http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main
#deb-src http://packages.crunchbang.org/janice janice main

# DEBIAN

#deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian jessie main contrib non-free

# DEBIAN SECURITY
#deb http://security.debian.org/ sid/updates main
#deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main

and

Package: *
Pin: release n=waldorf
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release n=sid
Pin-Priority: 500

Still blue screen of death, no openbox.  Everything I tried said "no display".

Then I did "apt-cache search crunchbang" and figured OK I'll just start installing crunchbang stuff till I get some kind of GUI I can work with.  Then I did "apt-get upgrade cb-metapackage" which switched me to "slim" and I said Yes Yes Yes please overwrite my broken Debian junk with gray Crunchbang-ness.  Rebooted and here I am, woohoo at least Openbox i working.

Re: I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

Personally, I've found it much easier to do a minimal install of whatever release of Deb I want and then move over the #! stuff I like.  Upgrading CB to testing or unstable often ends up a steaming pile of OS.

Re: I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

Hi there pjbrunet smile

I'm running sid, and have done so for about four months. My way of doing an upgrade is pretty simple. I start out with a fresh install of #! and don't run the cb-welcome upgrade script. Then in the sources.list I just keep one line (changed to sid):

deb http://http.debian.net/debian sid main contrib non-free

Delete the /etc/apt/preferences file.
Then:

sudo apt-get purge tint2 tint2conf slimconf

Then:

sudo service slim stop

Login and:

sudo su

Then:

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

Then:

apt-get install tint2

Restart your computer:

reboot

Now you are running sid smile

I did something similar to that.  Initially I had no preferences files (as other people said, and no mention of CB in sources.list) but only added it back because after the dist-upgrade (which seemed to go smoothly) I had no GUI just a blue-gray blank screen. 

(Speaking of uninstalling Tint2, yes I had to uninstall some things to get the dist-upgrade to work.  Like PHP5 for example.)

Now I'm wondering if I can get my openbox/autostart.sh working again...

Quoting pjbrunet: "hardware beep beep beep every time!"

Right after starting the computer, how many beeps do you hear before the BIOS screen appears?

Re: I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

Since Janice is not official yet, couldn't users wanting to experience it just track Testing and then change the repos when Janice is officially released?

Re: I'm downloading Janice, what should my sources.list look like?

I don't know if Janice is a 1:1 upgrade of Waldorf (as in: let's keep the build configs and run them again in Jessie). There are quite a lot of changes that have happened recently (in the last 2 years), so there are changes that a simple apt-get upgrade won't pull in without problems. The stuff I am thinking of is wrt to gtk3, the new systemd integration, filesystem changes in the kernels >3.18 * (if we assume the Jessie kernels will ship with this), the absence of hal, the broken cb-exit script. So you would have a 'borked' Waldorf until Janice comes. And even then, it's no guarantee that an upgraded Waldorf is equal to Janice. I strongly doubt it.

* right now, it's impossible to build a Debian with the Live scripts if the kernel is the metapackaged linux-image-[ARCH]

Adding the Waldorf source stopped the beeps.  Straight Debian I would even get a hardware beep if I backspaced too far on the CLI (very loud at 4am)

From what I remember, one beep upon reboot and another upon startup (booting) I think the startup beep was lower frequency.
