Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Cool. Might reinstall it then. Thanks for the link. Since I reallocated Grub to CrunchBang, after Ubuntu took it over, the Vaio fan (or whatever it is that causes that whine, it may not be the fan) is going nuts in Ubuntu - and it was fine after initially installing catalyst after the install.

What is the significance of installing Grub in the MBR and how do I tell if it's installed there? CrunchBang is on separate / and /home partitions along with the swap partition inside the extended partition. Ubuntu sits just outside on a primary partition but shares the swap with CrunchBang.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

boot into Umbongo and run

sudo grub-install /dev/sdx
sudo update-grub

x being its root partition. Then reboot into #! and run sudo update-grub

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

You can actually make the tiles hide, which clears up space on the desktop although I seem to remember it doesn't work well on VirtualBolux.

In any case, I'm not here to advocate on behalf of Ubuntu :-)

Will experiment with Grub and partitioning. Think I once picked the don't install grub option on Debian and had to reinstall grub using boot repair disk even for the OS that was already there.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Yeah, try new Linux users first with Ubuntu. Then if they don't like that at all, try them with Mint.

Make the way clear for them to discover CrunchBang (raising awareness etc.) but don't force it upon them. It probably doesn't have the vocation of replacing Ubuntu as the public face of Linux.

...or plan B: lock them in a cellar with:

- a large candle
- a box of matches
- a PC with no operating system on it
- an Arch USB
- a print out of the Arch wiki

Then tell them you'll unlock the door just as soon as they send you an e-mail.

Flaw in plan B;
If you actually print out the Arch wiki, there'll be no room left in the cellar for the other stuff...  big_smile

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

So the main reason one would grow to like Arch is Stockholm syndrome?
Sounds about right, actually.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

You have a point. Ok, skip the wiki. We could just leave little riddles, for example:

Perhaps it's time to mount a drive

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

I`m not sure I could escape that cellar myself. I suppose we could give them the wifi-password, but then it wouldn`t be as fun:D

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

@fog
I am sure you will not be disappointed with Livarp 0.3.9.
This release has a really sexy cool Awesome wm session (thanks to Aphelion configs)
Arpinux puts a lot of thought into making Livarp usable but lightweight.
