As much as I would like to love #Rust it sometimes fires back to me the hard way... today I just tried to update my Shortwave app from AUR and it stopped short... even though the repo mentions Rust 1.48+ and I’ve had 1.50 from the Manjaro repos some of its dependencies no longer compiles successfully... upgrading to 1.51 (released just 2 weeks ago) solved the build issues... beside that the release build took AGES... (for a small tool such as this one)... actually it was more than 20 mins... 1/2
Proud to share the first screenshot of the upcoming 21.02 release of the #Sway profile of @ManjaroARM... btw: we have automated image builds now 🥰 (https://github.com/manjaro-arm-community/sway-images)
Using the #pinebookpro as my dev device let me look into some low-level programming languages again. Also got some refreshing insights into recent C standards and the correlation to the UNIX/POSIX system. BTW: can highly recommend both books!
The new 20.08 release of #ManjaroARM is out and I’m glad to see the #SwayWM edition being offered across the board of supported ARM devices by the core team now… https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-arm-20-08-released/1516
Today starts with fighting my fear of spiders as this little big boy is sitting next to my doorway...
I was able to introduce initial theme support to my #SwayWM profile - starting with two themes out of the box: matcha-green and matcha-blue... New OS images are being created for #PinebookPro, #Pinebook and #RaspberryPi4 and should be on the OSDN later today: https://osdn.net/projects/manjaro-arm-sway/storage/.
On a side note: got DRM protected content working on the #PinebookPro by using a systemd container based on Debian armhf, Chromium and Widevine… finally able to watch my fav Netflix series again. More infos here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9680&pid=72044#pid72044
Got more space for more experiments… finally found the time to put an Intel p660 M2 SSD with 512GB into my #PinebookPro. Now running some setup steps to make it my boot device (https://forum.manjaro.org/t/pinebook-pro-manjaro-20-0-4-nvme/147801/3)
First time for exercising #archery this year. Already quite late thanks to COVID-19... it was a real pleasure and a very welcomed breakout from the current lockdown situation.
