Hi

Thought I would give Archbang a spin. Currently running arch+xfce on a 2005 celeron laptop, busy downloading the archbang iso now.

Re: Hi

Thanks,

I recognise your nick & Mr Green's, probably from way back on the Arch forums or something like that (you might even have been on ubuntuforums yonks ago if I'm not mistaken).

Up and running here but find the dynamic menu very slow to start up at times (I've already removed the menu icons so it's a bit snappier) so I will probably end up switching to a static menu soon.

Keen to try out Springlinux once you guys have an iso available wink

Re: Hi

Hi mips,

Welcome mate smile)

Running Archbang since 2 years now and nearly never having problems (just with this Wlan broadcom).  Replace it with an Intel one and never got problems back.


Happy to run Archbang.

Springlinux project is stopped by Mr Green because Void dev Juan doesn't trust him/us and Mr Green can't live with that.

That's a shame. If it's an open source project surely they don't have much say in what others do with it?

Re: Hi

Hi mipsmips, I have Archbang on an old laptop and sometimes I find menu a bit slow too, killing compton gave it a big boost.

I fully agree, but Mr Green felt different about this.

Yes that's true. I always disable compton.

Some times when you right click the menu it could take 1-3 seconds to popup and you can see the hdd led flicker, I reckon this is part of the dynamic menu updating itself. It's just one of those things, nothing new and the reason I prefer static menus as they are lightning fast, ob's xml config files give me a headache though so I tend not to mess with them.
