I’m not sure if I’m missing a trick here with all the #systemd alternatives for init systems out there. I gave #Artix a shot and liked it with #openrc but is the worry that if something bad happens to systemd that people who run it won’t know how to fix it? And then openrc or other init scripts are easier to maintain?
I just signed docs today on our first house. It still doesn’t feel real. I suppose it won’t until we get the key. Honestly, I just want the whole thing to be over after having to wrangle corporate sellers (Zillow) into repairing what they said they would. I can’t recommend buying property from a corporation :(
I’m realizing that sharing a /home directory between six #Linux distributions is way more headache than it’s worth. Somehow my #Firefox profile broke on all systems but one. The same for my mail client. #KDE has its own config files but shares some things with the #Gnome ones. It might just be easiest to bind my pictures, music, etc to their own mount points and go from there.
Today marks the end of #PinePhone Community Editions.
Thank you to
@kde and @mobian for making it possible. And thank you to all of you who picked up a CE and supported the mobile Linux cause!
Grab a Glass, Wine 6.0 Has Been Released
Ubuntu 21.04 Release Date & Planned Features
Wow, #ventoy just blew my mind. I just point it at a USB, and then I can slap as many .iso files on there as it will hold and then it can boot all of them anytime!!! No more dd-ing live USBs for me!
Just installed #freebsd on an old dell latitude. Had to cut it short for tonight, but the install took all of 7 minutes without Internet. Not too shabby. Looking forward to putting #kde on it and goofing around with the file system. It’s the only laptop I have with a CDROM so maybe there’s handbrake or an equivalent in the BSD ports.
Devs watching QA test the product
Just spent the night making an unbloated Windows 10 ISO thanks to Chris Titus’s video on #LBRY. I stripped out quite a lot with the tool he recommends. Unfortunately, when rubber met the road the Windows setup assistant failed to flash the OS. I’ll try using Rufus to make the bootable usb instead of woeusb (for Linux). If that doesn’t work, guess I’ll have to keep some bloat if I want to make a custom ISO :-/
I'm trying to write a program in #python to catch new emails sent from Outlook and save them as .pdf files. Anyone know anything about manipulating the .ost file? Or should I be focusing my efforts on listening for the events or some such?
Linux makes me happy, Blender helps me art, and Solus solved a lot of my problems.
