Comments: #! 8.10.1 runs smooth. Atheros wireless works as expected with madwifi. To my surprise webcam runs snappy in cheese! Sound works out of the box. I am having troubles with the volume wheel disabling my keyboard. Seems to be a bug with the new keyboard drivers in Intrepid. I have not tested the card reader. All in all feels like a new computer.

Pretty much everything worked right away. Ran the following tweaks from the Ubuntu Community Documentation.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Aspir … SSD%20Wear
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Aspir … L#Video/3D
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne110L#WLan

Didn't bother with the fan fix (rather let the BIOS deal with it), nor did I worry about the card readers.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Hi all,

After long and thorough negotiations I got a permission to install crunchbang linux to my son's
laptop (my old one) Compaq Presario 2100 too. We compressed the old OS's Win...what was the name or
what it is, hard drive space, so that #! got app. 5 GB free partition for #!8.10.01rc1 "Lite Edition"! smile
Anyway, installation went normally. Wireless card's (D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650+) light was on but
I was not able to get it work until after uninstallation of network-manger. Through network-admin
card started to work with acx finally.

Our second machine:
Name: Compaq Presario 2100
CPU: Mobile Intel Celeron 1.60GHz, L2 cache 245KB
RAM: 512 MB
HDD: Toshiba MK2018GA, 20 GB
GRAPHIC CARD: ATI Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M
SOUND: ALi M5451
NETWORK: D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650+, ethernet DP83815
OTHER: 2 x USB 1.1, CD-R optical drive

Thanks for nice wallpapers. Long live The CrunchBang Linux!

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

Works perfectly on my Dell Inspiron 1520:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 @ 1800MHz
RAM: 1024MB
Gfx: nVidia GeForce 8400M GS
Screen: 15.4" 1280x800
HDD: 80GB
Optical Drive: Some DvD/CD Burner thing
Sound: Intel 82801H onboard
wLAN: Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g - I had to manually install the B43 Firmware
LAN: Broadcom BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX

All the peripherals, function keys, inbuilt webcam, etc work straight off...

On a side note, when I plug my HTC Kaiser phone into it, it's automatically detected as a modem via rndis drivers... On the previous kernel I had to hack it up a bit...

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

The latest iteration of Projekt Kraptop ran Crunchbang very well.  Although I am not happy with the 800x600 screen resolution on this machine, so I may be upgrading already (it's only been 3 days since I procured this one).

Name:  Compaq Armada 110
Processor:  Intel Celeron 700mhz
Screen:  12" something
RAM:  512mb
HDD:  10gb
Optical Drive:  CD
Graphics:  Savage
Sound:  ?
Network:  None yet, but I know my D-link card will work


Comments: Everything works pretty much as it should. Took me a minute to get the onboard mic to work, but that was just a matter of messing with the Volume Controls. 

The idea behind Projekt Kraptop is to keep a crappy lappy on hand at all times so I have something I can use to carry with me to places and not care if it gets dropped, spilled on or even stolen.  I keep my data on my keychain and just run the OS and apps from the machine.  Discovering Openbox last summer kind of spoiled me.  I can take a small step up in specs on Kraptop and really gain a TON of performance.  I am eyeing a piii 1ghz right now...

Comment: Everything worked. No extra configuration required, save for my digital camera. I needed to download gtkam to get my Kodak LS743 to play nicely with Crunchbang which took a matter of seconds. I also needed to install Envy24control to get my m-audio card up and running but that was an equally trivial affair.

You might consider CRUX linux if you want to squeeze extra CPU cycles from your Krappy Lappy. I have an old Toshiba Tecra 8100 which sports a P3 500Mgz CPU and only 256Meg of RAM and I managed to have Openbox load up with only 30Megs of RAM being used. CRUX is a source-based distro so you have to compile absolutely everything including your kernel, however the documentation and the folks in the CRUX IRC channel are very helpful if ever you get stuck.

Source-based distros are far less convenient than something like Crunchbang with plenty of pre-compiled binaries available via APT, but if you're trying to squeeze as much performance out of old hardware as possible, there really is no better way.

Re: Your CrunchBang Linux system

I tried #! Live 8.10.01 from usb stick on my work laptop, Compaq nc6320. All started to work out of the box. Wlan was detected, sounds are working, volume keys are fuctioning properly etc. Only bluetooth I didn't test.

My work machine, Compaq ncc6320:
CPU: Intel T2500 2,0 GHz, L2 cache 2048 KB
RAM: 512 MB
HDD: 120 GB
Screen: 15.4" normal
Video: Intel Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML integrated
Sound: Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family)
Network:  Ethernet Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5788, Wlan: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
4 x USB 2.0, 1 x Fire, Bluetooth

Last year I tested quite many linux distros on this laptop in order to have usb linux while I'm travelling abroad. Many distros have been worked well but for now on I will absolutely use #!.
