Finally built my own
« on: September 23, 2011, 12:35 »
After using Linux Mint Debian Edition for the last year, I have recently become somewhat frustrated by fglrx problems that (as best as I could determine) were only found in LMDE x64. So, clonezilla work done backing up / and /home, I took the plunge and installed a Debian base system (no desktop, no utilities etc), and went to work with apt-get.

Now I have a system that does everything that LMDE did, and looks just as pretty, but without the bloat, and everything works. As an example of how even Linux distros can get bloated:

LMDE / partition (used) 32Gb
Debian / partition (used) 7.6Gb

This for the same functionality :) And I get to cherry pick what I do and don't want.  :thumbs:
Phenom II X4 965, overclocked
Radeon HD4670 (1Gb)
8Gb RAM
1.25 Tb HD
Arch Linux (Custom build with custom kernel)
