Raspberry Pi 3 images are in testing now on voidbuilds.xyz. Please test if you have a Pi 3 and the time. I added XFCE and some basic utilities to the build and will put it in the official line up once everyone is satisfied. Thanks to everyone who has donated to the project and allowed me to get more server storage. If you need help, feel free to join the telegram group and ask.

I saw the first version of this project several years ago but did not think the creator would continue to iterate and go all in on the project in 2020. Here we are though: The Zero Terminal v3,

A friend of mine just published her yearly Arizona Monsoon video, "Nonsoon". This woman can make magic with a camera. It's a weather video that truly shows off some of the majesty or Arizona. I highly suggest giving it a viewing.

I have been enjoying with app on Android and on desktop. Im considering getting some friends on it. Would love to hear your experiences with XMPP on iOS before i start suggesting it to people.

I installed Fedora on this machine when version 30 released about a year ago. Every upgrade has worked flawlessly and I have been very happy so I am crossing my fingers that the same happens with version 32. High fives to the team for the hard work they do to ensure that we all have a fantastic and reliable system!

For years I have been running i2p for fun just because I think it is neat. Is there anyone else using i2p? I wonder if someone uses it for a purpose other than fun, such as censorship.

I've gotten used to using i3, and not having my arm sore from constantly using a mouse is such a nice feeling. Just wish I knew of a nice LTS distro with i3 as the default. I'd give it a shot.

(No, no RR distros. I've had them break on me far too many times.)

Does anyone know of a multiplatform productivity tool that is FOSS, has a self hosted or paid server, and would work well for grocery lists? I want the wife to be able to write the list on a laptop, sync it, and then I pull it up on Android. Tried Joplin, tried Notable.

The closest I got was EteSync but it is not very intuitive for her. Am I going to have to get to writing my own tool? Thanks in advance everyone. Hope you are well!

So, I have a handful of Raspberry Pi devices but nothing past the first gen Pi 3. I have run just about every OS and use case on the Pi but a lightweight (although LAMP stack driven) Social Networking service is not something I thought existed. Today I found this and I am going to try it later after I wake up.

Oh man, this is totally unnecessary but I want one. Retro computer styled pixel art Bluetooth speaker that can play Tetris and snake among a lot of other things. divoom.com/product/ditoo.html

Thanks everyone for all the posix and bash tips as well as the links and advice. I still have yet to get through all of it but wanted to let you all know I am still thinking about how thankful I am for your kindness.

@kungtotte funny you mention nim because that's the language I started studying a month ago.

@Steinar @mdrights @mollusk shellcheck will crap out on things that aren't strictly POSIX, and bash will run anything that is strictly POSIX, so why not write something that will run literally everywhere instead of almost everywhere?

I really need to stop using bash and start using something that is actually POSIX compliant. I just spent the last hour trying to figure out why my build scripts were not working properly even though nothing was noticeably different in code. One script kept working so I copied from that and pasted into the other scripts. Everything works now....fml

Nightly builds on my voidbuilds.xyz server have been experiencing issues lately. Apparently having the nonfree repo enabled causes an error because a file that xorg is trying to install, already exists because of catalyst-libs! catalyst-libs is not even a package in the list for any of my builds. Working on fixing it now, sorry to those who have been looking for new builds.

Hello from @fosstodon! I've moved Mastodon instances, so if you've been following me for and updates, here's the place.

Has anyone has issues with RX 580 cards and current Xorg versions lately? All of a sudden now when I resume from suspend, my resolution changes to 640x480 and all other options no longer appear until after a reboot. This happens on all rolling distros for me at the moment and also newer release cycle distros.
