The thread is for W7 but I guess the procedure will generally be the same. You will most likely need to think on it and change things a bit. Others might give better ideas...

Looking good in VM.  Will try it on the Dell Latitude E6520... most ISO's do not boot on it.  Crossing fingers!

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

installed Waldorf to my eeepc, from usb, no problems whatsoever,  the welcome script worked smooth as always, changed gnome mplayer in the multimedia menu to vlc, wireless ok, sound ok etc...this means that it is bye bye with Statler, so thank you very much for being my trusted companion for more than two years, and a very  big welcome hug to you dear Waldorf, i am sure we will get a long, you look extremely well, will give you a couple of very minor personal tweaks, and yet another thank you corenominal  smile

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

The only fault I am able to see with this release is the same I already experienced with Statler: the desktop is so beautiful-minimal by default that I won't do much configuring.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

A question for papanominal:

Since the existing #!Waldorf is based on Debian 7 'Testing' release, once Wheezy is released as 'stable' - are you going to change/switch the #!Waldorf repros to 'Stable+backports' as you have in the past?

Or stick with the 'Testing' Repros for the New Debian 8, for a newer #!Waldorf?

Of course, which repros 'we' choose to use is up to each individual.

This question may have been addressed before - but I did not find any reference to it.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

@vrkalak:  I'm sure that, within days of Wheezy's release as Stable, Dr. Xaos will post an update to the "install latest kernel from Backports" thread.  To my knowledge, I think you're the first to mention this, but I'm sure you and I aren't the only ones who have been thinking about it.

Sorry for not making a separate topic for this.
In the meantime I figured it out that this waldorf image is not uefi-ready. I put wheezy beta 4 on a usb flash, and at boot, at the select boot device menu it displayed the device as "EFI:", it installed without problems, made an entry in the efi boot menu, and booted with success.
I thought this updated image is on par with wheezy beta 4, but as @corenominal pointed out explicitly in the first post: "other changes have been kept to an absolute minimum". Silly me.

I noticed the grub-efi-amd64 packages in the #! repo. I'm glad you're making an effort to have #!11 be UEFI ready. Even if it's not 100% hitch free, thanks for the hard work!

Not saying that the above is necessarily sarcasm, but in the off-chance that it is:  Search the forum for {wheezy testing stable sources.list}.

The latest update substituted vlc for gnome-player, but not VLC for GNOME MPlayer. The commands were updated, but not the item labels.

Very pleased with and thankful for Waldorf, as always. Just want to say I prefer to see the package list for the various meta packages offered in cb-welcome.

Either that, or remove the -y switch from the apt-get commands, so we can review what packages are pulled in by the meta and say "nah" if we don't like 'em. wink

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

What a great release!
The post install script has the option of setting up printer support and I have always taken advantage of doing so.
However, I have always had issues setting up the shared network printer in my samba workgroup with the menu item located in the "System" submenu.
No big deal I just use my browser to go to localhost:631 and set everything up there.
BUT...
Although the lpadmin group has been created by the post install script, "user" has not been added to either the lp or lpadmin groups and one cannot login to the CUPs server.
Easy enough for me to just adduser to both groups and finish the printer install sucessfully.
It would be nice if the lpadmin group was added to the default group install  along with making the "user" by default a member of those groups.
Also...during the install when setting up the partitions  for your installation and swap, wouldn't it be nice to have the option to use an existing swap?  Each time I install crunch I have to re-do the fstab swap identification on the other installations I have on my other partitions.  Maybe I am missing something here.  If so please enlighten me. roll

Not much to say other than awesome work! I finally took the plunge and upgraded from Statler to Waldorf. Very impressed.

Thanks for all the work! I'll be sure to try and help out with a donation or two when I can.

About to install in virtualbox. I'm hopefully getting a new machine soon so I'll hold off on a full re-install till then. Liking the fact VLC is back!

Updated Waldorf images are available now...
Anyhow, the new images contain some fixes to the installer that affected installations performed using DVD media. Personally, I tend to install via a USB stick (the recommended method), so I had not come across the bug myself, until somebody else mentioned it. The bug appeared as an error message just before the GRUB install screen, where it asked the user to insert an additional disk. To fix this, I have applied some patches to the apt-setup component of the Debian Installer. I have tested the fixes on a couple of machines and they appear to work, however, it would be good to have them tested by others...

I can confirm that I have now installed a new Waldorf system on my aged IBM Netvista 6339 from a DVD as this cannot boot from USB.

I did have some difficulty starting the installer as I just got some flashing blocks of text near the bottom of the screen.  This seems to be due to the  Debian installer bug #604101 mentioned in thread http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 98#p281798.  By adding the boot options "vga=normal fb=false" as advised in the thread, installation resumed normally.

The installation then completed OK apart from a functional but mysteriously blue, rather than grey, screen which was present with both the live and the installed version.  However, a quick change of wallpaper brought back the normal #! colours.  I have put this down to the low-spec onboard Intel 810 graphics.  Similarly, although Iceweasel runs fine generally, the failure to show any flash content will also be down to the graphics chip.

I have removed Network Manager and dependencies as this desktop/server PC uses an ethernet connection and so uses /etc/network/interfaces.  With the installation of a few server packages such as NFS and ssh the PC is now nicely integrated into my home LAN and is now also working as a backup server.  #! Waldorf is a very impressive distro that needs very little tweaking.

I generally work with (relatively!) "stable" distros but considered Waldorf is now stable enough to meet my requirements and, so far, it has not disappointed me!  My sincere thanks go to corenominal for bringing us such a great distro.  smile

I'd like to reverse my "honeymoon's over" position; I've had Waldorf installed on my internal HD for over a week with no loss of wifi.  I believe this release is now, indeed, Realtek-ready!
