One can install siduction kernels semi-automatically with smxi, too. Question is, how does siduction kernel differ from liquorix?
Thank you everyone for this thread. I've just spent one month away from Crunchbang in an effort to find out why
my system kept locking up. I have a brand new Lenova I7.
As soon as I got this new laptop, I loaded Crunchbang on it, "Waldorf' edition and noticed these lockups.
There were NO system messages in /var/log files indicating the problem.
I too assumed it was video related so I started using other distributions. I tried just straight WHEEZY using Debian's
beta install disks. The PC still locked up. Then I put on a copy of Mint 13 for a few days and there was no problem
Next I tried Open Suse 12.2 and there were no problems. Finally, I tried Slackware 14 and it's 3.2.29 kernel and there were problems
as I was locking up for no reason. I decided to compile a 3.4.20 kernel for Slackware and it was still locking up.
Finally, I did the 3.6.9 and that solved the problem. You need a 3.5 development or 3.6 kernel installed to use this processor.
And this upset me much as just about all the new laptops use these processors, a significant number do...
And these people are going to be trying Debian and failing.... What's sadder is by say summer or maybe fall of next year,
the debian people will be backporting a 3.4 kernel I will just bet, and it still won't solve the problem. It's hard to believe
we could have to wait for perhaps 4 years before debian releases a 3.6 kernel to solve this crisis....
And with this fact established, I think Phillip should do some thinking about offering a 3.6 kernel in his Crunchbang repos.
I will tell you that the 3.6.9 kernel is much faster than what we have...
Again, thanks everyone for the extremely useful information. It will help many people. The word need to get out about this.
Write debian as I have and let them know. Thousands of new users will end up going to Ubuntu because of this simple fact
and they will judge Linux based on what they find there. And that is something to think about if you care for the debian community and quality software...
Since, I first installed #!Waldorf in mid-Oct. 2012, (Thinkpad X1 laptop) - I have only had one 'freeze' - today!!
I just installed the Liquorix 3.6.0-9_amd64 Kernel on my #!Waldorf 20121015 install.
Following instructions from the Liquorix Project website.
We'll see how it goes . . .
