Just recently replaced an older Xubuntu 11.04 install, with #! Waldorf (w/XFCE), on a fairly new desktop PC. The performance gains are incredible, from startup to shutdown, and everything inbetween. Although I won't get into the specifics, unloading the *buntu middle man really makes a difference. Installer worked great and system working flawlessly.
Update:OK, here's what I've done - it seems to be working OK, but if anyone reads this and thinks that my system will die, then do please say so...I added the Waldorf repo to my sources.listIn my etc/apt/preferences file, I pinned Jessie at a priority of 1001 and Waldorf at a priority of -10.Hopefully this means that I'm essentially running Debian Jessie, and I can install any Waldo
Does anyone feel that any bugs have been found in Waldorf that would be reason enough not to install it as the primary OS on one's main computer rather than a "testing" machine?(aside from one of the comment lines in autostart saying "Statler" instead of "Waldorf" that is.)Would it be reasonable (not guaranteed, but reasonable) to think that up and coming updates
I'm running 64 bit Waldorf on an AMD64 machine.When visiting the crunchbang.org/forums page with Iceweasel I can click on "login" and enter my username and password, then click the login button. I get the message "you have succesfully logged in . . . " but then I get flipped back to the original forum page where it says "you are not logged in".
p = os.popen("fortune -s | sed 's/^[ \t]*//'|sed 's/[ \t]/ /'|sed 's/^A:/\\nA:/'|sed 's/^--/\\n--/'","r")In the snippet of code above from cb-fortune in the github repo for Waldorf, only short fortunes (flag -s) are piped to sed, and then sed does 3 different substitutions.
Hi, I`m a newbie at linux and definately at CB, but I love what I see. I successfully installed 64-bit waldorf a week ago, and everything has worked just perfect, so I thought I should install 32-bit waldorf on one of my older pc`s. I downloaded the newest image, and the install seems to go just fine until it`s almost finished.
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.
Simple, and maybe dumb, question, but here it is anyways. I was happy with Statler except for the age of the packages in a non-backported release, so when 12.04 was released I grabbed the Xubuntu variant and shoehorned XFCE 4.10 into it. I have to say I like the simpleness of it. Not as technical or simple as CrunchBang, but cozy. A little more fluffy.
