Nothing wrong with me that a million dollars or two wouldn’t fix.

You can get this with a Pinephone and a USB-C dock. Both experiences leave a lot to be desired, but it’s there.

Yah, that’s one of the drawbacks yet.

Was there some question about the quality of that leadership beforehand?

recommendations for lightweight window managers for an old netbook

Hi, I’ve got an old netbook from Samsung that has an old Intel Atom CPU (Intel Atom N455 1.66 GHz). I installed Arch on it and am now thinking of a suitable window manager. I tried Hyprland (kinda expecting it to not work really) whick didn’t start at all. Before I had Debian with Gnome, which technically worked, but...

Follow the blogs for Year of the Voice initiative from Home Assistant. There will be lots of pointers for the journey they’ve taken this year getting TTS and STT working for HA.

Also, you can control the variables of the system it’s running on.

Of course, it means when you fuck up, it affects everyone at once.

Hell, nVidia was actively working against having a working opensource driver reverse engineered by Nouveau. Linux is a thorn in their side and the only reason they somewhat support it today is that GPU compute works so much better on Linux.

Oh, absolutely. I can’t believe we deployed web apps on IIS for instance. What a shitshow that was. If you can run the important bits on something predictable like linux with all the serverside tools that gives you, why wouldn’t you.

A BSOD that gave you a clue about why it happened would be a welcome change.

Maybe it can be the “brown screen of death”. To indicate that it shit itself.

Interesting concept, I like the design, but the workflow is rather odd and would take some getting used to. Also, things like the UI need some work on scrolling, like the Sudo connect window scrolling the password out of sight if you fail the password entry.

Is there not issues with filling up the NVRAM with efi entries, even if you’re deleting old ones? I’ve bricked a computer by distrohopping so many times it couldn’t write new entries.

I have almost a dozen installs of it in the wild for a few years now, with friends and relatives that aren’t very computer literate. It has been virtually maintenance free. This is on wildly disparate hardware as well, and it’s always installed nicely and with little messing around after to get things working.

People like to hate on it; it’s been by far the most reliable distro I’ve used, far better than "just works^TM " distros like Fedora and Ubuntu. I’d ignore the naysayers and use if it works for you.

Turns out there’s a different nvidia driver for each kernel version

That is literally every version of Linux out there. IDK what you think was different about Manjaro in that respect. Nvidia hates linux and it’s a tough thing to keep it running, especially on a rolling release. Use the DKMS driver if you’re going to update kernels a lot. At least manjaro seperates the kernel installs from the general updates to minimize this disruption.

if your use the AUR with Manjaro, your system will break

Oh, bullshit.

Ban smoking if you’re going to ban it. If it’s unhealthy and stupid (it is) then don’t just do it for the non-voters. Take a stand.

Oh, fuck off with your attitude. You don’t understand people as well as you seem to think.

After years of Manjaro (and I still use it on most of my computers), I’m trying out Nobara KDE to see how it keeps up for gaming. It has a number of optimizations that Glorious Eggroll has compiled and seems pretty fast compared to Manjaro on the same hardware. I imagine I could do all the changes on Manjaro, but I also wanted to see how Fedora runs these days, it’s been a long time since I used it on the daily.

So far, so good.

Are there any of these cheapshit 7" tablets that will take something like LineageOS? Because that’s the first thing I’d do before I put a spyware laden thing like that on my network.

Same here, I used to use Arch but just got tired of constantly tracking down conflicts during upgrades. Manjaro may be hacky but their hacks seem to get things to work smoothly 99% of the time. I install it on computer illiterate relatives and friends because I know it’s not going to create a support nightmare for me, and I still get all the software one could want via the AUR.

Hell, I have one cousin that’s convinced that he has a Macbook because I set up KDE to look like MacOS. I haven’t had to fix anything on that laptop (except printers) since I installed it for him 5 years ago. He just does his updates via Octopi and carries on.

I’d probably double that menu to include coffee.

No cream.

No sugar.

Take your coffee and grilled cheese sandwich and fuck off over thereabouts

I run my own Piped server, works great and have a few friends that use it exclusively now because the YT algo was getting too be too much for them, besides the ads.

I think the public ones are just hammered too hard.

Antiperspirants create their own issues. They’re not something I want cloggingvup my pores, giving me boils, and messing with my body chemistry. Its like eating Tums, once you start you’ve fucked up your stomach acid and have to keep using them.

Take a shower once a day, and you won’t have any issues.

FB or instagram aren’t going to be useful job hunting. If you’re in IT, perhaps LinkedIn would be expected, but a Github account with a commit history would probably be more useful in reality.

I wouldn’t sweat it, just start applying and see what comes. Obviously an email address will be necessary. You can access internet at the library if you don’t have other sources.

But he talked to them! That was going to fix everything, I heard.
