Just removed the entire root partition this time, extracted the tar onto the clean partition, actually finished the upgrade this time and bam - finally back on my fresh, up-to-date OS with no reinstalling of the OS or programs. What a ride, but at least I know that my backups work now... πŸ˜… (2/2)

Just recovered from a bricked install for the first time... Accidentally broke it a few days ago when I made the mistake of only partially upgrading some packages.

Used a tar backup to overwrite my root partition, but that caused a lot of conflicting packages errors. Eventually fixed all of them and tried doing a full system upgrade when a power outage hit and bricked the install again. (1/2)

I don't think it's how any of us hoped it would work out, but there's an argument to be made that this is true.

Just finished setting up my dotfiles repository to use chezmoi. Now, I'm managing different configs for my home machine, laptop, home server and school computer all using the same branch. Neat!

Outfitted my Thinkpad with a black skin and a few stickers. :archlinux: :vim: :bash:

Put a Bash sticker on even though I use Fish, a superior shell. 😏

Much better than the last one, this time they really make it seem easy and don't try to intimidate anyone with super hard and irrelevant terminal wizardry. They go out of their way to suggest easy ways to get started with gaming on Linux. Kudos to LMG for doing it right this time!
