I still have it around.
But, wait a sec, I see a weird 'pulseaudio' thingy in there. What about our poor, lovely alsa? Don't you forget about alsa, for audio's sake! ;)

Haha that's the point ;)

No, ALSA is of course still there, it just connects to the Pulseaudio system. Skype depends on it, and Skype is my only way to keep contact with my family (per phone). Hope you understand *blush*

Oh yes, but it's totally your fault! Your color scheme goes with every wallpaper I set, I rarely extract colors for the term nowadays. ;)

I "found" those colors on #!. I added a credit to muzieca in my Xresources on git.

I know, it looks like the one I posted above.
But, a month ago latest Arch updates screwed X on this old Acer 1304XC. Couldn't start X so I left it there, almost forgetting about it.
Today I booted it again, upgraded it and voilà: magic happened.

Ok, I know, sounds like a newbie story. But I love this lappy too much, maybe because it is the one where my journey in Linux-land with Slackware began ages ago.

One of the CRUX devs made a 32-bit iso, and shared it here. So of course I had to try it, and move it to busybox init and mdev in the process.

CRUX 3.3 on the Phenom. This is a weird machine; AMD processor, NVIDIA graphics, ethernet, and (Realtek) audio. It works well enough.

Another trip to the museum. I've posted about this machine before (just above this post in fact) -- it's an HP Pavilion with an AMD Phenom X4. It was my first four-core machine and the most expensive machine I have ($115 from ebay). It has nvidia graphics and ethernet, and has both IDE and SATA hard-drive ports. Right now it has an IDE drive in it because I have a pile of them, and it's fairly slow (15 minutes to build a kernel compared to 3 minutes on my four-core i5 with an SSD). I don't use it much because I have better machines now.

I upgraded CRUX from 3.3 to 3.4 and left mcwm on it. It also has Debian on it and I upgraded that from Wheezy to Stretch.

My HP Pavilion died a couple of months ago. Didn't even boot with a new hard disk. It had stayed with me for 12 years. A great machine.

Sorry -- I realize I sound like one of those machine snobs (I hate those guys), calling my Phenom "slow" -- I used to run Gentoo on a 32-bit Celeron; that's slow. The Pavilion is a fine machine.

Gekko, my e-machines Sempron box died a few weeks ago -- it beeps like a memory problem, but I've replaced the memory in several different configurations, tried a different power supply, hard drive -- nothing. Could be a random capacitor or just about anything. I will probably pull out all the usable parts and save the case but recycle the motherboard. Kind of sad, but shit happens.
