Can I still try Crunchbang?

Hello! I'm sorry for maybe a stupid question, but can I still try and use Crunchbang if the project has ended? And for how long I will be able to use it? I'm not a beginner Linux use, rather something in between, but, please, don't be harsh on me if I didn't see some thread that answers my question.

Thanks you smile

Re: Can I still try Crunchbang?

The "Download" link still works so yes, you can.

The CrunchBang Waldorf repositories were never updated anyway (I still use the DVD I burned in late 2013) but the Debian wheezy repositories are still being updated with security & bug fixes so you should be fine for a while yet (probably a few years as wheezy will transfer to Debian OldStable).

Just make sure you update your system every week or so:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

@ksiencha:  You could also give Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall a try until Bunsen Labs BunsenLabs is ready.

Re: Can I still try Crunchbang?

I just installed Waldorf but before I did my first update with the first-use script I changed my repos to jessie. The old wheezy repos wouldn't let my computer work properly.


Windows free since Crunchbang 8.10!

If that turned out well for you, then nothing is better than that. I would have anticipated a few issues if you didn't take precautions. But if everytrhing went well, superduper smile

Yeah, supposedly there is a tint file that isn't used under Jessie that can cause issues.  I don't know from experience, I'm just repeating something I read here in the forums.

Good work sir!

I was reading it thinking "what pretentious moron posted this twaddle?" for a moment before I realised it was a copy of my post...

Re: Can I still try Crunchbang?

To anyone not feeling up to do the upgrade themselves, here is a a upgraded and updated snapshot of CrunchBang Waldorf 64 bit, fixed to be compatible with Jessie and Systemd, and with the original Waldorf theme and icons...
https://sourceforge.net/projects/waldorfsnapshots/


Prepare by creating the partitions you want to use, or find some existing ones to reuse. The Live Installer will not let you create new partitions, but it will format existing partitions if you choose to use them. Root (/) is mandatory. Separate Home and Swap is optional. GParted is included in the live system if you need it.

When  you have your partitions ready, fire up the installation-media that you have created, boot into the live session. Don't enter anything at the login prompt. Be patient, you will be automatically logged in. Wait for the desktop to fully load. Then right-click the desktop, and hit the install option in the menu.... It should be straight forward from that part. If you get confused by the the keyboard, console and locales setup-screens, don't worry about it. If you get something wrong there, you can always change it post-install.

Important: Only write the grub to MBR if you want this install to take charge of the boot of your computer. Otherwise, choose to write the grub to the root-partition, and run update-grub in the distro that handles grub for you, in order to detect and add a entry for  this new install.

Re: Can I still try Crunchbang?

Any estimate of when BunsenLabs will have a full release?
