smxi Makes Setting Up Debian a Breeze

in linux on (#3KB)
Typically, the install process doesn't stop with the installation of the base OS. You've still got to install and configure a lot of programs and drivers, for example: VirtualBox, Flash, LibreOffice, Java, and NVIDIA drivers, to name but a few. That takes time and energy.

Recently I needed a hard drive upgrade, and after trying out Xubuntu 14.04, I decided to stick with Crunchbang 11 . With a fresh installation, I needed to quickly get the applications that weren't an apt-get away. Enter smxi , a handy collection of scripts created to solve the frequent, repetitive support questions that often appear on IRC channels. Here's a guide showing how to set up smxi in Crunchbang.

How do you complete your config and install? What other tools and scripts are out there to ease the pain, particularly for multiple machines?

I've been using it for years to help make Sid/Sidux/Aptosid/Siduction more stable and friendly. It's there and it works. I don't know why distro's aren't "officially" adopting it. (I believe it started as a semi-offical part of Sidux, then became independent when they decided not to "support" it).
