Day 1 to 7 of #LFS - Attempt 2.5
My previous attempt to LFS went for 12 days. I was going for a 32Bit build, built on a true 32bit Intel CPU. Laptop I was using is from 2007. I had many issues with files probably caused by file corruption, after all it has a ~11 years old HDD. Let it die in peace.
I started building LFS from scratch for 64bit using my daily driver laptop. This week is spent doing the same thing (building toolchain) for a 64bit AMD CPU.
Started #linuxfromscratch on 1st June 2019
Day 1 of #linuxfromscratch
1. Got a laptop (Pentium CPU + 1GiB RAM)
2. Installed Manjaro Xfce 32bit to use as Host OS (that thing is using around 240MiB RAM at idle)
3. UPDATE & UPGRADE
4. Download LFS 8.4 Stable book.
5. Get necessary development packages on Host OS
6. Setting up environment variables
Stopped at page 16 - Chapter 2.6
Spent around 3 hours
I just read your post on why Zoho mail is better than Gmail. I have been using ProtonMail since its early days andnever upgraded to paid tier (I am a student). Now that @ProtonCalendar is in beta, do you think encrypted ProtonCalendar (which probably has its own proprietary protocol due to encryption) will be any better than Zoho Mail, aside from encryption?

We need privacy by design. Can't be an afterthought.
TIL that mobile networks gets so congested during new year celebrations that toots go few minutes late
Do you know any methods to send notification to your phone from a server you are running?
I found https://gotify.net which looks great (self-hosted and FOSS!) but I wanted to ask in case you know of anything else I should look into.
Last day of the decade, looking back to 2010 (and 2009) I wonder how fast it passed. I graduated in 2009 and started working right away, watched the rise of smartphones, rising concern about privacy, the transition to more env. friendly thinking. A lot has changed.
I went from employee to business owner and from windows to mac and finally to linux, still miss the wobbly windows..,
All in all pretty good, wonder what the next 10 years will bring
All the best to you all!
My friend is fine when using a computer with Windows OS (i guess). But thanks to his prejudice towards Linux, he seems to forget where Start menu is, how to type "browser" or "internet", how to move pointer to Firefox icon and click on it. He also don't know that Google works on Linux too.
Am I being evil by sitting there to watch him torture himself?
Oh wow, was not expecting this! Something else to consider using that gift money on.
