RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

*** TOPIC CLOSED, Please download the latest ISOs instead! ***

BunsenLabs GNU/Linux 8.1 (Hydrogen)

based on Debian GNU/Linux 8.1 (jessie) and CrunchBang (waldorf)

A Live ISO, suitable for transferring to USB or DVD, using custom configurations and scripts to create an Openbox-based desktop environment.

BunsenLabs GNU/Linux could possibly make your computer go "Mee-mee-mee mee! MEEP!" Therefore BunsenLabs GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Some of the software installed...

  • iceweasel

  • nm-applet

  • leafpad

  • thunar

  • terminator

  • gmrun

  • dmenu

  • mpv

  • audacious

  • file-roller

  • htop

  • mirage

  • gparted

  • synaptic

  • gdebi

Known issues...

We have not finalized which packages will be installed by default. The right-click menu has many entries for packages we've not yet included in the ISO. There are a few menu entries and one keyboard shortcut that do nothing. Several menu entries trigger an error window. "Failed to execute "galculator", for instance." Well, I'm not sure you should be galculating anyway. Of course, edit the menu and/or install the missing packages as you see fit.

The 64 bit build should fit on a CD. The 32 bit build will not as it includes 2 kernels, 686-pae (for most computers) and 586 (for older machines). If you install the 32 bit ISO, it will install both kernels. For more info, see this post and the following one...
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 44#p434144



GET IT!

http://pkg.2ion.eu/torrents/ddl/

-edit- Torrents disabled until the next build as we will be switching to sponsored hosting, these are direct downloads.

If you want to logout of the Live session...

user: user
password: live

If you install Hydrogen to your computer, upgrade your system before proceeding with our Welcome script (bl-welcome)!

You can upgrade the Bunsen-specific packages in 2 ways now...

Via our new repository (easiest, recommended)...
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=39993

Via the Upgrade script (most up-to-date)...

You can automatically build, and upgrade to, the most recent packages with our upgrade script. Copy that content to a text file and save it as upgrade-bunsen-pkgs. Make it executable and place it in /usr/local/bin. You can now run it from the terminal...

upgrade-bunsen-pkgs -u

We haven't yet decided what to do about the fact that xfce4-power-manager in jessie has no system-tray icon. Some possible solutions can be found in this thread...
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=39987

I've named these ISOs "alpha2" out of caution but I believe they are rock-solid stable. Please feel free post your feedback and any issues you have here (we'll split support issues off to their own threads as necessary).

Many thanks to The BunsenLabs Team, the #! community and, of course, corenominal!

Please post if I've overlooked anything, and happy testing!

Excellent!
I am seeding the 32 bit. Not many takers though.

I'd be still asking for a new website and a new forum, otherwise BunsenLabs would fall away holding on to the now defunct Crunchbang.
(I put my 2 cents here post: #145)

If you guys don't like my idea, would you tell why?

Ok! :-)

No md5's/sha's this time, though?
Maybe add a text file with all of them, for both 32-bit and 64-bit, in it?

I've downloaded both .iso's, and am seeding now.

A few questions:

What about alpha1? Should we discard it?

How comes amd64 is smaller by 100MB compared to i386? What's missing?

The new 32 bit build should be identical to the alpha1 build except it uses updated Bunsen packages, primarily to fix the Welcome script. If you have updated alpha1 using the Upgrade script (thanks for reminding me, btw, I'll update the OP in a minute), there is no reason to install this build except for testing purposes.

And yes, the 32 bit build has both PAE and non-PAE kernels, hence it's larger.

I definitely don't think it's left out on purpose. :-)


(somewhat off topic)
Something I find weirder, and haven't bothered to find out where to complain, is that there are still no md5/sha for the multiarch Debian 8.1 + firmware (at least not for bt-cd and iso-cd, which are the ones I've checked). There are md5/sha's available for the separate amd64/ and i386/ .iso's, but having multiple computers I've found it neat to just have to download one set.
Those available for multiarch are all for the debian-edu-firmware-8.1.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso - and they're not mislabelled, or my download is severely botchered.  yikes

Yeah, I'll do them for the final release again (when we are able to offer both direct downloads and torrents, or so I hope). I created them with DDLs in mind in the first place; since torrents are basically a distributed transmission system around hashsums, they are unnecessary for torrent downloads since if the checksum doesn't check out, your client will show the file as broken/incomplete.

You are right though that this is not 100% interception proof. It'll be in the end. For the record the SHA-512 sums for the files:

For anybody similarily clueless, it's

There is a way to avoid it. Use linux-flavour 686-pae and remove the 586 kernel from the pool. Because the kernel will still be in the pool, even if linux-flavour is used. But of course, that's probably not a good idea, unless you are going to make a special image for old pc's. But I guess that one slightly bigger image is better than having three different iso's smile

Re: RELEASED: BunsenLabs 8.1 (Hydrogen) Live ISO 32 & 64 bit (alpha2)

This is just not a priority right now, getting the Live builds done was. Next will be finalizing the package list and matching the root menu to it. corenominal is allowing us to continue with this forum, so for now we will do just that.

I am going to say something really tough. I am doing so as I have already checked the alpha 1 thoroughly and the only problem I found was the lack of the battery icon, which was corrected by installing fdpowermon. That was enough for now, or otherwise one can install mate power manager and we’d have the icon. Other than that, everything is working well.

Now, the tough part. The two live distros are BunsenLabs, and not Crunchbang. The pipe-menus and the scripts may appear like the Crunchbang ones, but they are different. The idea of installing BunsenLabs through net-install and by a script is BunsenLabs, and not Crunchbang. The questions asked here are on BunsenLabs installs/live distros, and not on Crunchbang. And, even if there would be some questions on the old Waldorf, but that would end very quickly.

corenominal is allowing us to continue with this forum, so for now we will do just that.

Here again something very tough. You might not like it, but has to be heard.
Wheezy is still alive, that is, until May 2018 by Debian LTS Team. Somebody have to look after Waldorf until that happen, right?

So, would you guys go about creating BunsenLabs on Jessie, and later on Stretch, or go on babysitting a dead or dying distro?   

So, think about it?

It is a tough question; Would you create BunsenLabs--distro, website and a dedicated forum--or babysit a dead distro?
