This is gonna take a little longer than anticipated!
Removing systemd reminds me of removing viruses & spyware from windows 20 years ago. Computing has come a loooong way.. 😂🤣

This is frustrating. Systemd is so embedded it's a real pain to remove.
With runit: xorg crashed
with openrc: kernel panic
I'll have a break for couple of days and try again...

virtio: add non-legacy virtio 1.0 drivers for disk and ethernet

ircrc: freenode -> oftc

POLL: When do you get out of bed

When deciding on a NAS which would you consider and why?
(Research for a possible kickstarter/project - thank you)

I've installed #freebsd 13 on my ageing #ThinkPad r61. Two small annoyances:
1. Booting from grub is inconsistent (grub problem!)
2. Xfce desktop freezes, mouse cursor moves & that's all. Have to hard reboot.
Anyone any ideas before I deep dive..

on similar note, if anyone in #Brussels needs (or know somebody that needs) a graphic designer/web designer/amateur programmer/bike mechanic/??? then I'm in the market for a job 👀

One more to go, then on to the moto G9!

ADB doesn't like usb3!

Are there any #guix users here?
Got a slight problem. With "guix pull/upgrade" I'm getting "run out of space on device" error. There is plenty of space.

Any solutions?
Thank you.
