New to crunch bang , install comments

Hello all
Just installed #! for the first time. Like what I see so far. But have only been using it for half an hour so far.

Was a little confused at first with the post install script. It says to have admin password ready but I had not set one up. Then I read the screen again and saw the word (sudo) in the sentence and away I went. Problem and confusion were at my end.

As for the rest of the script  it is great. A distro that asks if I want an office program set up , or printer etc. Wow you have done something that is missing from every other distro I have tried.

And the sym link for htdocs when setting up lamp , another winning idea.

Just wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work.

Will be lurking in back ground for a while to try and get a feel for the forum. May not post much as doctors tell me I have some form of early onset brain problem and some days just cannot get a sentence together.

Re: New to crunch bang , install comments

This seems to be a place for us old people. I'm old, but I don't aspire to the high calling of geek. Anyway, I installed #! yesterday and was very pleased to be given a choice not to install a bootloader. I have several Linux distros on two hard drives (one computer), and I would rather add this one to the bootloader rather than having to scramble around to get those others on (one is a frugal installation). I'm happily motoring along now, with no unsolvable proglems. Thanks for a stable and enjoyable OS.

I use the term geek to show way of thinking, not to imply any skill level.
You have several distos installed, know what a bootloader is and are posting to this forum. Sounds like you have a strong geek streak if you want it or not ! :D

Keep exploring and having fun.

Old is all perception..... If I said I saw the original Star Wars, Rocky, and Grease in the theatre; would I classify as old?

Re: New to crunch bang , install comments

I'd like to share my first impressions after installing #! on my new laptop.

The install was quick and, after rebooting, everything worked: wlan, audio/video, printer, etc. As I wrote while introducing myself, I was very impressed with the speed and the clean look of #!.

Question: Why are do newly installed apps NOT appear in the menu after installation? Sure, I could open them by launching and running separately, but it seems strange that they aren't integrated in the menu.

Major Problem: The system froze numerous time while copy files from my external HD to the internal drive; it also froze while multitasking--e.g., two browser open at the same time, checking e-mail, etc.  Looking at the forums, I noticed that another user also experienced system freezes that apparently were linked to the touchpad, but since my System76 (Pangolin Performance) laptop was designed and built for Linux (albeit Ubuntu), I'd be surprised that the touchpad was the cause of the freezes. Unfortunately, this was a deal breaker for me since I expected #! to be stable and reliable. sad

Meanwhile, I've returned to Mint--which always works for me--but will continue to run #! in VM. That said, I really like #! and look forward to when it will be my #1 distro.  smile

Re: New to crunch bang , install comments

OK, here's an update. I re-installed #! to my laptop HDD today, but this time I used a DVD instead of a USB flash drive (not sure if that had anything to do with the freezing problems I experienced with the first install). Anyway, the install was quick and -- knock on wood -- I've had no problems whatsoever this time and EVERYTHING worked out of the box.  I love #! -- it's the best ! smile
