Bleachbit with VL light 6.0
« on: July 02, 2011, 12:58:07 am »

Using bleachbit to clean up stuff with VL light ? Good idea, bad idea ... people's thoughts on it ? Any other, better recommended way(s) of keeping a VL light install clean and tidy ?


Thanks.

Although am definitely impressed with what the devs have done with VL light. This forum represents one of the drawbacks of using a lesser known distro. Seems like the main activity here are spammers. Doesn't exactly help much in terms of figuring things out. When you run up against an issue with VL,

Still VL light is the lightest nix I've yet found and think it's great. Amazed how lil sys overhead it uses. While still being really feature packed. Guess it's worth doing some digging and experimentation to figure things out when someone needs support, shrugs. Though if I need some good generic viagra. Know right where to come to find some spammarized links to good erectile dysfunction meds ... The VL forums. :D

Sorry for the lack of response lately and it is either they are busying on the coming VL7 official release or busy preparing for the up coming 4th of July  ;D

BleachBit require below dependencies to work

Quote
    * Python version 2.5, 2.6, or 2.7
      However: Python version 2.4 and 3.0 are not supported
    * PyGTK version 2.14 or later

VL6 is currently using PyGTK-2.12 and it does not meet the minimum requirement. There is a bleachbit package for VL7 and VL7 is coming out soon you might want to try that. Currently VL7 is at RC2 stage and will soon to be announce stable.  8)

Thanks ... Think a great many people are waiting for VL light 7.0 to come out. Sure the full versions of VL are really good too. Understand normally people have to wait till the main release gets finished before the devs here get around to other stuff like the VL light version ? Thanks again for the info though appreciated.

You can try to build bleachbit for VL6 but you encounter a lot of outdated packages and need to manually update it. That why i recommend to try VL7 if you can :)

Bleachbit is available in the extra section of vl6 repo. I don't see any negative feedback on it. It seems like a safe and effective way to clean out crud.
