Pinned toot

Hi, I'm a long time Mastodon user who is moving away from mastodon dot social because it's too crowded. The main things I am interested in are:

i'm trying to use algo ( ) on nixos but i get stuck at the setting up virtualenv stage. here's the error i'm getting:

anyone got any idea how i could fix this?

ok so when did firefox for linux add touchpad scroll coasting support? this is great!

why does nixos-rebuild switch --upgrade want to download literally _every single package_ i have again? even if there is no version upgrade???

this sort of stuff makes me want to just give up and install ubuntu...

i have a friend who would like to use xmpp for communication. has anyone got recommendations for servers i should suggest to them?

i update my device to the latest version of lineageos (manually, the updater app doesnt work)

it gets stuck in a bootloop, so i wipe system and reinstall lineage, gapps (i need push notifications and microg is still imperfect) and magisk

it boots

i get hit with a seemingly endless stream of popups telling me that "carrier services has stopped"

i eventually get through all of them

everything serms well, apart from one thing

the fingerprint sensor doesnt work any more


does gitea not build for armv7l or am i doing something wrong?

generating dh parameters on a raspberry pi

> This is going to take a long time

it sure is...

the only thing stopping me is that i am really bad at naming things

give me a valid domain name that is cheaper than 拢20/year and ill host some stuff on it

Stop hating on server software!

nginx is ESSENTIAL
apache is ENTERPRISE
postgres is RELIABLE
ssh is SECURE

created my first pull request for an open source project o.o

installed nixos

i think the distro hopping is over for now

the install process for nixos was much easier than that for void or alpine, particularly the luks on lvm part (although i did have to look up a guide online)

anyway i like how nix/nixos works and will probably stay on it for a while


does anyone here use alpine linux on a desktop/laptop? if so what is your experience?

(im distrohopping again)

update: there is a flatpak available for discord on flathub & since flatpak allows glibc software to be run on a musl system, that means i can use the discord flatpak on void musl

is there any way to separate the volume level of speakers and headphones in alsa or would i have to use pulseaudio to do that?


anyone know if its possible to get discord working on void musl?

could be a 3rd party client, i dont mind but the official binary is glibc i think so i cant run it :/

(btw pls dont ask why im using discord i know its "bad"... i dont really want to use it but i kinda have to)

thanks :)
