fresh new (wanna be) user

Hello All

I'm doing Blender, currently on macPro,
I'm also using on Ubuntu machine for terminal rendering purpose.
The linux machine has i7 with 6Gb ram, Nvidia card and 2x 2Tb Hdd.

First question, can blender run on Crunchbang ?

for the last few ours, i'm trying to install Crunchbang but installation freezes after the language/country windows.
I noticed that the 64bit file i've downloaded got AMD at his name, is this a problem ?
(crunchbang-10-20120207-amd64)

Live version is running good, problem just while trying to install.
I really want to check Crunchbang, any ideas ?

Thanx
Erez

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

Blender will work in #!. If you want the most recent version you should use Waldorf. Wally will maybe work better with your machine too. It is not the recommended version yet by corenominal et al, but as more knowledgeable others than me suggest, once Wheezy is frozen there is no point in using Statler. Waldorf is amaaazing.

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

Hi banger

I'm as new as the winter here, until now i used ubuntu just for terminal render, i even don't know how to install the new blender.

i'll read Debian links you sent, but boy, so many linux systems, how do you choose ?

Thanx

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

You've made the right choice already. If you want the newest blender use Waldorf.

To install Blender:

sudo apt-get install blender

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

You need to use Waldorf, or track Statler apt sources to backports to get the most recent. Already said it twice.

I'd just forget backports though and go straight to Waldorf. Statler is dying.

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

I'm by no means a 3D guy, not even 2D ... hehe ... but you just made the right choice in terms of performance (both, CPU and GPU) as #! does not flock around with useless eye-candy. This is where you get your machines's performance down to the knitty gritty. Me say: this distro is fast!

P.S.: and yes, this is Debain Linux with an attitude - of course it runs Blender! wink

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

thanx, VastOne,
no doubt it is the most interesting os i bumped into, it is challenging, nothing is expected.
and i have to ask:
I tried to install #! on my pc and it didn't worked out, none of the versions.
installation freezes after the language/country windows. so for now it runs on virtualBox on my mac.
Any ideas how to check my pc for #! installation ? [i7, 6Gb, Nvidia]

Thanx

Re: fresh new (wanna be) user

hi Erezb1,
welcome to the community! smile

to (re-)partition/format your HDD, once you boot into the live cd, just right click on the empty desktop to bring up the openbox menu then select System->GParted...it is a GUI tools. Before doing anything on your hard disk, read some guide, for example this, GParted manual and, why not, others guides you may find...

for troubleshooting your problem with the install, when it hangs, hit Ctrl+Alt+F4, it will drop you to a console of which you can take a picture to be posted here...I am no expert but someone else might see something useful to guide you...

[edit]usually this section of the forum is just for introduction and greetings of newcomers, there is a dedicated section for asking help for problems, generally one thread per issue...it is up to the mods to decide if it is the case to split move this thread...[/edit]
