more crunchbang (fixed!)

October 22, 2009

it’s working well on my hp dv2000 but I have icons in the tray area which just disappear after a while/sometimes. The wireless one stays but sometimes the battery/charge and loudspeaker ones appear and stay for a while¬† nd then disappear again.

Anyone got a clue?

it seems that gnome-power-manager was set to display icon only when charging or discharging…!

8 screens of death!

so far so good. I only get the ‘8 screens of death’ when it shuts down and is about to power off! I have set conky up to monitor temps and everything seems to hover at the 50 ish mark.

HP laptop with CB

October 10, 2009

now trying CB on a HP DV2500 laptop which Iwas given to sort a problem where it overheats running Vista and the screen goes to 8 ‘mini’ screens totally at random. Word from the net appears to say this model has this problem shortly after warranty expires. Splatted Vista with CB to see if a less hungry OS will cope with it.
