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... 😅 (2/2)

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!
Live, love and most importantly, #linux.
