Re: www.archbang.org

I am using both #! and arch (both 64bit )at the moment on my Sony Vaio TZ11

I did not make any tests to measure speed ...
But  #! feels almost as fast as arch
I run pekwm with arch and openbox with #!

Boot time is also similar ... about 30s to login-manager
#! 33s and arch 28s

For me the more interesting part is the learning experience of building up my own
system from CLI + rolling release with arch:)

... but #! is so elegant right out of the box ...!!... and I use more or less the same apps
on both systems.

So setting up arch for me is more just for the fun of doing it and
takes quite some time!
+ Fn Keys and a few other things are not easy to get working correctly for me.

Enjoy

Re: www.archbang.org

When I get that screen I believe I only selected sudo.

Also since you were installing in VirtualBox, there wasn't any real risk anyways...

Re: www.archbang.org

This afternoon I'll do it on my real laptop (got everything backed up already on an external Hard Drive) big_smile
My laptop's a HP dv6904ca w/ an NVIDIA graphic card.
I'll follow your path anonymous and select base & sudo. My only fear now is for my wireless to work properly. I have a WEP protected wireless network named Gintama w/ a 64 bit ASCII passphrase. With the base set of packages & sudo only, will I be able to use my wifi like charm? smile

Re: www.archbang.org

Well you would need to select netcfg, wireless_tools, and the driver for for your wireless adapter (if there is one).

I don't have experience with laptops or wireless so Im afraid I can't really help more.

Re: www.archbang.org

I am using Arch at the moment on my Dell Mini 10v with Xfce instead of Openbox. I have found it slightly faster than Crunchbang but it is using full Xfce so I wasn't really expecting it to be much faster. The idea of building my own distro was what drew me to Arch and the AUR is an excellent idea.


Running Crunchbang on eee pc 701 and Dell Mini 10v.

Re: www.archbang.org

Good job willxtreme. And BTW you don't need libgl if your going to use a proprietary video driver (like nvidia).

Also I would change exec openbox-session to exec ck-launch-session openbox-session. It launches consolekit and fixes some mounting issues.

Re: www.archbang.org

On Crunchbang I had to launch firefox like this env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 firefox to make fullscreen flash work properly
Under Arch it's working flawlessly without doing anything I'm speechless

Re: www.archbang.org

does pam work from console login ?
i ask because the standard slim build doesn't work with pam, so i would assume its a non standard thing.

anyway wicd will remember your password, try that.

Re: www.archbang.org

netcfg is interessing big_smile but it's the same as autostarting a customized script I've made called
wireless.sh:
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid "Gintama" key s:hanzo
dhcpcd wlan0
