Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

He did a review of rc1 too, didn't he?

What a remarkably concise and attentive review (great looking site, bonus!) I didn't see a comment section, I would have recommended jessie-backports as a possible fix for his kernel issues.

One thing wrong with that article:

BunsenLabs Linux has emerged as the legitimate successor to CrunchBang, having won out over many candidates such as CrunchBang++ and CrunchBang Monara.

The community, as a whole, rallied around our search for a new name (in respect for Philip's wish for a clean break).  The other two so-called candidates were created by outsiders (though we and Philip wish them nothing but well). #LoveAndTolerate

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

That reminds me, OSboxes.org hosts ready to run virtual os images that you can download. They are still offering #! as a choice on their site as one of the available distros. I was thinking someone should let them know it's no longer in development and maybe mention BL as a suitable replacement.

Manjaro JWM vs BunsenLabs as Lightweight OS (April, 2016)

Dang, I really like that Manjaro theme. I'm glad we have some similar theme options. I wish our default conky looked more like that, though.

The fact that their own repository doesn’t seem to work

What? There hasn't been any downtime since February on pkg.bunsenlabs.org (minus a couple of seconds when I restarted the web server). Nothing useful I can act upon here, just vague statements. Anyway, this guy's internet connection seems to suck anyways judging from all the trouble with the regular Debian repos he's been getting...

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

I wasn't happy at all to read:

none of the installation scripts actually install the programs they are supposed to… (and the BL-Welcome which replaces CB-Welcome startup script is equally useless)...

As twoion points out, there's been nothing wrong with our repos that we know of, and no-one else has reported any problems with the pipemenu installs or bl-welcome. question.gif

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

^ Well, if the guy is so far behind the curve that he doesn't know about the httpredir mirror service... roll  I suppose even that might have problems with his crap internet service though, if twoion is right.

Again,  roll .  Ever since Squeeze, Debian has been the working distro for me (compared to *buntu derivatives).

@johnraff:  From everything I've read here on the forums (and I give just about everything here at least a cursory skim) there ain't a Bi*b*r thing wrong with the scripts or pipemenus in the release ISO.

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

Here another thing from that write up:

The lack of Ubuntu-esque software centers, etc costs this variant a lot but doesn’t prevent me from considering it a spiritual successor.

I know what he can do with that, and I'll help him do it!  This is not Ubuntu!

My personal thought is "The lack of Ubuntu-esque software centers is a huge plus!"

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

^ "Lack of" is too negative a term.  "Freedom from" is better.

I feel I should reiterate that I'm not a *buntu-basher; my first serious steps into Linux were with a Dell-rebranded Hardy Heron.  Ubuntu is a nice introductory distro and automagically takes care of the non-free stuff for you; Debian reminds you when you're drinking "free beer".

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

I'm not an Ubuntu basher either but I feel it is being rammed down peoples throats.  Hit a search engine with "Debian {something to search for}" and the number of 'Ubuntu' stuff one gets is staggering.  And like you I started my Linux journey with Ubuntu - Feisty Fawn 7.04 and I like it.

So today I use "Debian {something to search for} -ubuntu"

As a relative newbie I don't understand the reference to Debian either. I have found it reasonably straightforward to install and it is not a major job to enable the contrib and non-free repos if required. I prefer to stay close to the "mother distro" rather than the derivative. I suppose I may eventually even get to Arch smile

I don't have BL installed at the minute but when I did (RC1) I had no problems with scripts - on the contrary I found them to be excellent.

Re: BunsenLabs Reviews

The Linux Action Show featured an installation of BL on today's show. I caught the livestream this afternoon, but the show should post later tonight on YouTube. Chris Fisher did a segment on installing Linux on 10-year-old hardware and decided to use BL for his test. He seemed duly impressed, although he kept referring to the distro as "BusinessLabs." :-)
