Finally got here - thanks to Zill ( fellow Solydx'r ). Was able to download an iso from linux freedom http://crunchbang.linuxfreedom.com/ and MD5 matched up. Yaah !
Two questions now that I have #! installed.
When navigating this forum there is an irritating white flash between page loads - feels like a slight delay while the new page downloads . This only happens on forward navigation and on this site because of the grey background . Didn't notice this problem on other distros using Iceweasel / straight Firefox
When first booting Crunchbang and after logging in, background and conky load quickly but there is a distinct delay while tint2 panels load - is this normal ?. I have left tint2 configuration at default other than moving it from top to bottom of the screen. My PC is 64bit pentium class with 2G RAM.
Usually you'd open a new thread for those questions...
1. I know Chrome used to have that problem. Don't know on Firefox.
2. Yes, it's intentional (to keep things "in order")
Sorry about not starting a new thread. ops You are of course right and I did wonder at the time of my post if I should do so. Not sure how I can now get moderators attention but if you are reading this Moderator perhaps you would split from post #16 out into a new thread
Just to clarify this behaviour is with Iceweasel
Moved posts above to a new thread ( from http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 10#p395210) as suggested by Alad.
As a follow up to the "white flash problem" I tried on a few different PC's today and it seems the problem must be related to the forum background colour ( at least on my PC's). On windows IE and Firefox I was experiencing the same problem to greater or lesser degrees - only on Chrome (Windows) and Midori (Manjaro Live CD) was there no problem. I am back on #! partition and the problem seems quite pronounced using Iceweasel ( which is essentially Firefox anyway). Unfortunately for me it makes the forum almost unusable. 8) 8) 8.( Wonder if anybody else is having the same problem ?
