"The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels."

Can anyone recommend me a libre compatible Wifi-card for my desktop computer? Preferably PCI and support for Bluetooth.

Can anyone recommend me a Linux friendly Bluetooth adapter for my computer? I'm moving my computer and I would like to be able to use my Bluetooth headphones with my computer now when my stereo is too far away.

I like how verbose emerge in Gentoo is. Here's an example message it left me when I recently updated Cronie:

>* Messages for package sys-process/cronie-1.5.5:

>* You should restart cronie daemon or else you might experience segfaults
>* or cronie not working reliably anymore.

It looks like I won't be able to use my desktop computer with my TV anymore. I'm thinking of buying a Raspberry Pi for it. What model would be good enough to play videos mostly from YouTube via mpv and youtube-dl? Is 4k playback possible? My minimum is 1080p at 60 FPS though.

I made a few extra decals just in case I end up with a new computer.

And in case you missed the first decal, this is where I installed it: hunden.linuxkompis.se/2020/03/

"Portage 3.0.0 released, with up to 50-60% faster dependency resolution (and dropping Python 2.7 support)"
