Specifically tint2conf; post edited and emphasis added.  I'll add some more about fixing a tint2conf-broken install after I get caught up on recent posts. cool

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

Thank you for this How-to.
I am planning to upgrade to testing after a new install of #!
Can you also please clarify what has to be done after the Crunchbang Repos are back?

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

@neovoid:  If you have upgraded to Testing, it is probably best to leave the Waldorf repo behind.  If you're sticking with Waldorf/Wheezy stable (without or with backports), simply re-enabling Waldorf in your sources.list and running an update/dist-upgrade should be enough to bring your install back to a full Waldorf install.  Obviously, I haven't had a chance to test this yet; you may need to specify Waldorf as the target for a few packages like tint2. monkey

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

@bauwle:  I'm sure there is, but I haven't looked into it.  You should also be able to set the color scheme back to the CrunchBang-standard gray-on-black.

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

^ In short, yes. cool  To elaborate, since Waldorf is based on Wheezy, leaving it in your /etc/apt/sources.list (and /etc/apt/preferences) when migrating to Testing or Wheezy can cause package breakage as the few packages in Waldorf become older.

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

^ excellent smile But what's the point with purging this tint2conf package then?
I would not have done this when i wanted to upgrade to jessie some days ago...

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

I think that, with Waldorf pinned much higher than the Debian repos, the Waldorf version of Tint2 doesn't normally get upgraded to the one in Debian.  It's only a problem if the Waldorf repo is commented out/removed, which makes its pinning irrelevant.

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

Noobish question here. Commented out Waldorf from /etc/apt/sources.list, apt-get purged tint2conf, apt-get removed tint2. apt-get installed tint2, it installed the "previously selected" SVN package. This time apt-get purged tint2, attempted reinstall and got the same answer. What gives?

EDIT: *facepalm* Dear lord, forgot to update before reinstalling. Please excuse me.

EDIT 2: Well it keeps reinstalling the SVN version but everything seems fine after reboot. My bad everyone.

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

Strange.  Try `sudo apt-get install -t wheezy tint2`?

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

Many thanks for the howto, pvsage. Apt reported a problem with Tint2 but I survived a couple of days with this and didn't notice untoward.

I'm a bit sad not to see the Debian swirl anywhere, nothing has changed for me. The grub screen is taken up by Bodhi Linux, and it's drab to say the least, and the login screen is definitely #!crunchybangy :-)

In fact, in view of what has happened to the Waldorf repository, it could be a good thing to tell us what's in it. According to what you say, it seems we can do without it. Perhaps we'd missed some piped menus, and of course the welcome script which isn't essential. There must be other more important stuff.

I was planning to show a friend how to install #! instead of bloated Lubuntu, now that I've used it for a while and am going to keep it —since this very nice distro has gone back to Iceweasel—but perhaps I'd better wait until the Waldorf repository has moved to a safer place?

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

E: The value 'tint2' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

Re: How to update a fresh Waldorf install during DDoS

^ I don't understand the last part of this.  How is the current location unsafe?  It's been nearly a year since the DDoS, and as far as I know that was the only time the repo got hit.  The forum itself has taken a couple minor hits too, but those were very small things, most likely run through zombie PCs.  Whether any of these were random attacks or vengeance, and whether we were the intended target or collateral damage, has never been determined, but no site is completely "safe" from such attacks.

At any rate, Waldorf itself is less than a year away from being Oldstable, and as far as I know corenominal still plans to have the Janice repo at the same domain...
