Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

^ it's not exactly unreachable, but I get a security warning. Normally I do not give a wet cough about what my browser thinks is "trusted", but this time it looks worse:

linuxbbq.org uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is only valid for the following names: hostingraja.in, cpanel.hostingraja.in, mail.hostingraja.in, webdisk.hostingraja.in, webmail.hostingraja.in, www.hostingraja.in

hostingraja?

it also won't let me connect at all.

i can still 'ping linuxbbq.org' though.

trying to connect with dillo, it redirects to some "Adbuzz" page.

https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=linuxbbq.org

It must have been dead since before the New Year. The domain was registered in December by namebright.com, which itself is a domain registry service. Also, it's registered from Kartanaka, India, but Julius, who ran the BBQ, lived in China. hostingraja.in is a major Indian web hosting company.

Aha! Thank you slob. I was a little bit gutted at the thought that the bbq had gone bellyup.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

@beaks & notinen
I actually wouldn't have found out had I not mistakenly entered .com while browsing on someone else's tablet. Honestly thought it died after the old .org domain lapsed and got squatted on. Thing is, I think I'm one of the few who made that fortunate mistake, and most of the past members still probably think it's gone for good. I don't think wux and the rest of the admins had much motivation to inform members (via email), since, with regards to releases/spins, the project's essentially dead now. Shame, since the banter was quite good over there back in the heyday.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Those guys could really shave RAM off of a desktop, I'll give them that.

-edit- Lol, I remember when we finally released hydrogen, the comments were things like "1700 packages? This is what you get when you design something 'by committee'." monkey Jules was very fair, he pointed to our summary and said that we were true to what we were claiming to be, and that we deserved a chance...

BunsenLabs Linux is a distribution offering a light-weight and easily customizable Openbox desktop. The project is a community continuation of CrunchBang Linux.

Defining features

The distribution consists of configuration and resource packages installed on top of Debian. There are no changes to the way the Debian base system is administrated.

    Pre-configured Openbox window manager with tint2 panel and conky system monitor
    Assortment of harmonising GTK2/3 themes, wallpapers and conky configurations
    Various configuration and application utilities to maintain this system
    Additional desktop-, multimedia- and hardware-related packages come pre-installed to offer a better “out-of-the-box” experience.

Kudos to @twoion for creating that summary, it has served us well.

Hi,

Your work is really fantastic, really wonderful. I have installed it (Alpha 4) on my two personal laptops and I am quite happy with it.

The only downside about the experience is that on my second installation, I used cfdisk to reduce the partition in where BunsenLabs was installed (to get some free space to install dwmX), and... well... it seems that cfdisk reduced the partition but not the filesystem, so I lost the partition (not mounting, not bootable anymore). I have backups of all important things, so no problem. But something to be aware of in future installations. In the first installation I used gparted and the original partition is OK.

Anyway, thanks a lot for this amazing piece of work. Love i3, love openbox and now also love dmw. I was expecting the new final release of Debian Stable to upgrade my systems (pure Debian in one machine, BL in the other)... but now I expecting not only this, but your final product, even if the Alpha4 I use is totally stable. I apt-upgraded yesterday with no problem.

Salut,

One suggestion: I'd put all suckless code in one single folder (suckless/dwm, suckless dmenu, suckless/st...) and not everything in the /home. But it's a question of tastes.

Thank you for your feedback. So pleased you are enjoying dwmX.

Not sure what happened above. Perhaps there are some cfdisk experts that might know more....

dwmX is in feature freeze so what you see now will be '+/-' what is in the final release in line with Debian 10/10.1.
I am hoping to release RC1 soon.

Your points have been noted all feedback is welcome.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

One question to anybody using dwm ...

I can't make multimonitor working. At home there is no problem because I have on single monitor, but at work I have two (laptop + external 22inch).

I use at start the system:

xrandr --output HDMI2 --off --output HDMI1 --off --output DP1 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output eDP1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1920x0 --rotate normal

or simplyfing:

xrandr --output DP1 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output eDP1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1920x0 --rotate normal


but then dwm not detect two different monitors to display tags, but one big extended area. gnome, i3, qtile and bspwm gets the correct behavior and "understand" that there are two monitors. But not dwm.

Any thoughts?

thx in advance !


---

And doing this (after cancelling one monitor):

xrandr --output DP1 --mode 1920x1080   --output eDP1 --mode 1366x768

I get a mirror between the two. No the desired behavior.

sad


------------------

I have debian jessie, and using dwm6.1.

I commented those lines:

# Xinerama, comment if you don't want it
# XINERAMALIBS  = -lXinerama
# XINERAMAFLAGS = -DXINERAMA

in config.mk because, if not, I get this error when "make":



dwm build options:
CFLAGS   = -std=c99 -pedantic -Wall -Wno-deprecated-declarations -Os -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/freetype2 -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=2 -DVERSION="6.1" -DXINERAMA

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

It’s xinerama which gives multiple monitor support.

Have you installed libxinerama-dev?

Some new intel graphics drivers dont support xinerama, so might have to look for xrandr patch.

Yeah, worked with libxinerama-dev. Now it's time to test dwm with two monitors.

Thx a lot, malm !!!!!
