Re: The end.

First of all, this is the only distro I ever threw money at.

This project taught me to love Debian. In turn, it taught me to utilize Debian in the way "it ought to be done" through net-install and learning how to reduce the package experience not through "pruning", but breeding on my own accord.

Over time, the project, indeed, become a redundant concept. Honestly, I loved to keep up with the project not to install new variants of #!, but to see what programs and configurations the low-overhead populace on here liked to use to keep things tidy and minimal.

Thank you so much, Phil, for bringing me into this world. Your hobbyism became the means to my true Linux education.

Re: The end.

Oh poo end sad  ... #! is so solid that I rarely venture onto the forum ... imagine my horror at catching up with this thread  8.(

I noted a post by pvsage on the first page ... is this a goer? I don't want/can't to let go of the only Linux distro I've stuck with, financially supported and loved enough to share with my nearest and dearest.

Thank you Philip ... I'll always remember the little thank you video the first time I donated to #! ... It meant a lot to see the effort you put into #! AND how appreciative you've been of the support over the years ... I think over 600 posts in this thread is a testament to that. All the best with whatever you move forward to... I'm sure it'll be amazing... unless you're planning on collecting old newspapers and hoarding cats ...

Has anyone successfully upgraded Crunchbang Waldorf to Jessie yet?  Is there an easy way?

Lots and lots, and it isn't too difficult smile

There is a forum search icon at the top right of the page which should get you some info. There isn't a nice prominent sticky HowTo unfortunately, but for starters you can change from waldorf to wheezy using: this method.

If that goes OK, then change your sources from wheezy to stable (now = jessie), and upgrade again.


Hey, I finally got around to trying this and it worked like a charm!  Thanks again!!

Re: The end.

Pity, but now I have to look for alternative distro.. Could you, plz, suggest me one? No DE, minimal but good for beginner+. Gotta get used to cli also. Currently I'm using LM 17, and I wonder, if I install openbox and tint, will it be as fast as #!? The only reason I'm not on #! is that it doesn't support EFI boot and cruncbang repo is down/ I would gladly return to it, if there was a simple solution to these.

Re: The end.

You've come to the right place - BunsenLabs - have a look around it's in pre-alpha test mode as we speak.

Re: The end.

I hate registration procedures. Providing another unique user name. Handing out your email address. Retrieving the mail with just another password to remember. Thus, I usually stay out of such procedures whenever I can. Today, however, I have registered just to write a single post.

To me the above announcement is really sad news, yet I understand and deeply respect this decision, as much as I respect the awesome work you have done.

Within the last five years, commercial as well as non-commercial software seems to have rapidly lost quality. While software gets more and more overloaded with features, in many cases it does not even reliably provide the core functionality as advertised. Trying to find the suitable software solution for a given task is getting increasingly harder, as the software that initially seemed to offer the solution frequently turns out to be just another "Could not proceed because an unknown error occurred"-case.

Crunchbang was different. It was rock stable, and despite its low resource usage it was a highly usable modern operating system of an efficiency other linux systems can barely dream of.

I will miss it.

Yet I am looking forward to the outcomes of whatever project you're gonna get involved in next. wink

Thank you for your awesome work. Best wishes

Re: The end.

I learned a lot from this community, so apart from hugely thanking Philip for all his great work & Becky for supporting him, I'd like to thank the moderators and all forum members for helping me out so many times.
I know in my case it sometimes it took a lot of patience from your end, so love to you all!

Re: The end.

Awwww...  shame, but fair enough.

Like many others here, I dabbled with various distros for years, learning very slowly and looking for something useable day-to-day as well as empowering.
   CrunchBang was it!
Everything you need or want but nothing else to clutter and waste your time. As soon as I got the chance I installed at work and I'm sure I was more productive as well as happy for a couple of years because of it. In my new job I need a Mac most of the time but keep #! on VirtualBox for a few essentials. I guess I'll carry on until it refuses to update, but I've learned so much through using #! that I'm far more confident I could brew my own when the time comes.

THANKYOU enormously, and may your future be bright.

Re: The end.

This makes me a sad panda. #! was the first distro I ever tried with Linux (straight from Windows, I might add), and it's the reason I'm STILL with Linux, and also the reason I will never try vanilla Debian, or ANY Ubuntu flavour, or even Fedora. #! taught me to tinker, to play, and to try stuff. I'm almost sorry now that I never stayed with #! - I went to Arch a few years ago and will use it probably forever.

But the END of #! is heartbreaking. I'm going right now to haul out the first PC I ever installed #! on, my netbook, wipe Arch from it, throw #! back on it, and maintain it FOR-#$%&ING-EVER.

Corenomial, you have my infinite respect. As per handing the keys over to someone else, DO IT. DO IT. DO IT.

Re: The end.

Somewhat belatedly may I also offer Phillip and Becky best wishes for a happy, productive future. It would be fair to suggest your contribution to the world of tastefully-minimalist-functional-remixable-machine-logic is widely appreciated, spawned a host of helpers, imitators and derivatives, and involved a global community of creative "open-sourcerers". CrunchBang distilled what an open source community could and should be. A positive environment for sharing, learning and evolving. Long live Linux! wink

Re: The end.

I loved this distro (still do), and still run it on some older hardware. It has taught me to love Debian and completely break with Ubuntu. My main machine now runs Debian Jessie Stable, and I still find worthy info in the #! forums smile

Of course you will - we're moving to BunsenLabs - Debian Jessie with a #! flair!   wink

Re: The end.

I join to the vast majority of the thankful people. A huge thank you to you and your wife. I was worried about the future of the distro as I saw no changes in a long of time. But things have to keep moving on. I have learn a lot from #! and his community and #! has been my main distro for the last 4 years. I have had it installed at work (as a workstation) and home, and a laptop from where I am posting this.

Good luck with any project.

Kind Regards.

Re: The end.

@musashi:  Browse around a bit and you'll discover that members of the community are forking CrunchBang.  The new distro will be called BunsenLabs and the first release will be called Hydrogen.  You can actually install BunsenLabs right now if you're comfortable performing a Debian Netinstall; reference this thread to get started.

Re: The end.

Try Gobang, a well built minimal distro based upon Ubuntu, or Sparky Linux Base, based upon Debian Testing.  Both are basically fast Crunchbangs.  It seems to me there is a lot of crying over some spilt  Budweiser when the fridge is full of Coors, Heineken and Corona.

Re: The end.

Bummer Man!  sad  That said I havnt used crunchbang for quite a while, I turned to Semplice a fantastic crunchbang rip off.
It'll be sad to see the projest go.

Thanks for all your hard work, I have really enjoyed using crunchbang over the years and am still discovering other distro's inspired by it or that just rip it off. None of them will ever repalce the exsitment of the first few crunchbangs, man it was like a breath of fresh air amoungst the blout.
