Last weekend the two rack servers of my #basementrack where finally reinstalled with #Proxmox and now form a small cluster with shared storage from my NAS (via NFS). This means that I can freely move VMs between the two nodes. I'm still amazed how fast booting and working with VMs from NFS shares is.
It was a bit tricky to get Proxmox working with DHCP, because it's not supporting this out of the box. Pro tip: Pin the IPs for the interfaces first. Then you don't have to edit config files later.
This is the prime example for why you need to be able to at least open devices. With devices where everything is glue you can't even remove the dust. And oh boy was that necessary! #RightToRepair
This was the Chrombook of my mother. An ASUS CB5-311 with an ARM CPU. This thing is pretty fast and can be used for 12 hours straight on one charge. But Google decided to EOL it and not release updates anymore.
I'd like to not throw it away. What options are left? Chromium OS builds seem to be tricky, because of the ARM CPU. Is there a way to install a "normal" Linux? I mean a proper installation not chrooted with crouton.

Every wondered how broken RAM looks like? You are welcome!
This is Oscar. Oscar is a #ThinkPad t410 and part of my #basementrack setup. I’m mainly using it for SSH connections and to search for stuff on the internet. So no heavy workloads. Sadly Oscar became painfully slow with the latest releases, so I decided to replace the HDD with an SSD. Boy is that thing fast now. 🚀
And the best part: Replacing the HDD couldn't be simpler. There should be more laptops like the ThinkPad t series!
I'm I seeing anybody here at the openSUSE Conference this weekend in Nürnberg Germany?
