(Yes I have not acquired my first star yet IM WORKING ON IT)

installing nixos on a usb external hdd is taking longer than i anticipated...

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
