Hey. Hi. You look fab! Great hair...
« on: February 07, 2013, 04:11:49 AM »
For anybody who doesn't already know me for the CrunchBang forums, I'm Jim.

Whenever I feel like I know what I'm doing, I try a new distro, and immediately getting lost, find my ego deflated down to a manageable size again. Such is the case with VSIDO.

Clean, fast install. No problems with the Windows Ocho partition (gotta have it for work) or dual-booting - but no Secure Boot EUFI on this machine either. Runs like a greyhound after a rabbit! Any application I want is found with a quick search on Debian and a short apt-get install later, it's there...

Aside from thanking @VastOne [very nice of you to put this out there... appreciate it], much thanks to @Sector11 for the lesson on how to use wget! http://jims2011.blogspot.com/2013/02/vsido-it-continues.html Bloody Hell! Always so much more to learn, and only so much coffee to facilitate the learning...

The only two drawbacks I've found? 64-bit only. I've got a netbook and a laptop that are 32-bit, and won't accept anything higher. Naught to be done about that, but the second? My wifi-N chipset won't recognize under Wicd (or network-manager-gnome which I replaced wick with... this usually fixes things). Have it research on my own a bit further, but hey, as long as I have a text-editor, root access, and the command-line, it's fixable.

So: see you-all when I'm running on all cylinders!

-jim

Welcome merelyjim.. Nice to see you here.

VastOne did a fine job with VSIDO.
Hope that you get the wifi issue sorted out.

Hinto stole my line.  And you are welcome.

Lets see: 1 32bit netbook + 1 32bit laptop = a 64bit nettop doesn't it?  Or would that be a lapbook?  ???

Anyway, welcome to VSIDO!

Thanks, everyone! Got the wifi working, and all is well. Transferring all the stuff of an external hard-drive is all that's needed to make the process complete.

@Sector11; tried duct-taping the laptop and netbook together to make a 64-bit. Result was an epic fail. Maybe try again with a different color tape?

Thank you merelyjim and welcome to VSIDO...

It is easier to say VSIDO when you realize it is said as VSIDO...  ::)  :P  :-*  :-\

Would you mind sharing what you did with wifi to get it working in another post, or perhaps a How To?

That would be great!

@ jst_joe

Oh you're bad bad bad ... I just caught movement out of the corner of my eye ... and realized you eye looks around, blinks and ... Stephen King could write a book on that avatar!

Well done!

For some reason I seem to be able to keep track of stuff like that ;)
