Haven’t written for a while…

just came across Crunchbang (or #!) and am impressed. Was getting fed up with Kubuntu and Kde, as they are becoming a bit too unwieldy and bloaty! So I looked around for another ‘debian’ distro (I like apt-get too much to try anything else!) and this fitted the bill.

Had my usual DWL520 wireless problem but decided to sort it properly as Canonical (or Debian) won’t. I have to install without the card, reboot and blacklist the driver, shutdown, install the card and the set up ndiswrapper – works a treat now!

Anyway it’s all good now and I will report back with an update soon.
