Another visitor from CB...
« on: April 29, 2013, 06:54:45 PM »
The VastOne was kind enough to ask to use a background image I made, so I thought I'd pop over here from crunchbang to see whatsappenin'. Download and install went well, and I've been playing with the distro for a few weeks - nice one. Not QUITE as user-friendly as #!, but then I didn't expect it to be ;)

Glad to see familiar faces here, and the atmosphere is nice and friendly!

I can't help much with the nuts-and-bolts problems, but I can do the decorating :D

Welcome damo!  It is great to see a familiar face and thank you for joining and testing VSIDO

How can we make it as user-friendly as #! or for that matter, does it need to be?  ;)

I am looking forward to your creations!

@VastOne

Thanks :)

Wireless didn't work on my laptop (broadcom issues of course) so I couldn't install, and I haven't made the effort to rectify it yet. And there are some glitches with Blender, which I run as a standalone, not the (old!) version in the repos, so that may be a python thing?

And no - I don't suppose it does need to be "user-friendly" in the sense that a complete noob probably shouldn't be messing with experimental software :) The VSIDO user-base probably knows their way around a lot of the configuration , and anyway this is the place to ask I guess!

The only experimental is grub2 and Iceweasel (from mozilla's experimental to get the very latest release of Aurora)

Most anything pulled from experimental now is only there due to the debian freeze... once that is lifted, debian can finally move packages from Experimental that have been ready for a long time

grub2 and Xfce 4.10 are great examples of this

Everything else is SID based

Thanks for the offer. I used to have to do it regularly pre-Statler, so I'll dig out my old how-to sometime. If it's still no go I'll post for help in the appropriate place. In the meantime VSIDO is running fine on my main machine, and my little lappy is running out of space so I'm not too bothered!

Welcome damo.
Looking forward to seeing some more of your eye-candy work with blender.
Very nice indeed.
