Fedora 15 + Openbox = computing dream come true! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Openbox gets a major up for being able to handle multiple X screens correctly. I wish KDE had better support for it. I'm using kwin on the first X screen and openbox on the 2 others. Still getting some minor glitches, but, after some tweaking, it doesn't crash anymore.

well... lxde is basically a pimped out openbox... more to it than that, but yeah....

and if you get the dvd install, you can tell it to JUST install openbox if you wish its in the package selection part of the install, for your GUI go into window managers and check openbox and the openbox stuff to go with it
Kinda meh now...

(Note that I have installed Arch Linux multiple times. I use Archbang to save time, not because I don't know how to properly install Arch. I highly recommend installing Arch Linux manually for science when you have the time)
I tried doing an ArchBang install to save me time on one machine and found it was definitely not a way to save any time. ArchBang has tons of generic drivers etc... to try to make it work on any computer you decide to boot it on. Once I realized how much garbage was installed, I just grabbed an old Arch disc and did the install from scratch. After trying that, I'm pretty much convinced that ArchBang would be great for USB-persistent installs, but maybe not saving time (if you're picky like me)
