Yo! My name is Chris.
I’m a writer, podcaster, and doggo daddy exploring my mental health right now. I made a salary shooting and editing videos and commercials for a marketing agency, but that was not living, as I’ve learned. Yup, I met a woman and moved to CAN to be with her. I’m very lucky to have her support as I try to heal myself.
I’ve used linux for certain tasks for over 10 years. WAP server for my Motorola candybar phone back in the day, music server for the various places I’ve lived, and other dabblings. A few years ago, I installed CrunchBang on a n old laptop my father-in-law gave me. I thought I might take a serious stab at linux as a daily driver, but the laptop was chained to its power supply. Regardless, I loved openbox!
Now, my ancient Macbook Pro is lagging. So, I decided to dual boot to linux and make another attempt. I wanted to use Bunsenlabs, but these Macs with their dual graphics cards seemed to make any install I tried do nothing but give me a black screen. I found Archlabs and I have come full circle. When I found CrunchBang, it was after a failed attempt installing Arch!
Hi! I look forward to picking your brains and learning more linux. I used ReFind to get the install started and grub over wrote it. I can go back to MacOS by holding the option key, surely. Then, I could probably run the ReFind script again to fix it, but forget that! I want to use AL!
