I tried to cipher what they produce or offer with no luck. Website offers infinite corporate speak with no meaning. Anyone familiar?


Xbps <3

Did musl for a while, got tired of incompatibilities, have been running glibc for years now :)


How has been your runit experience in comparison? s6 looks interesting

It’s dumb, rather silly in comparison and it does nothing other than keeping services going - on Void Linux you symlink your services from /etc/sv/{service-name} to /var/services/ and there it goes off doing its thing.

https://docs.voidlinux.org/config/services/index.html#basic-usage

Systemd could probably provide some fancy features on my system but it’s a simple procrastination-station and so far I’ve not come up with anything I’m missing. Very happy camper.

(Lemmy is acting up for me)



Usage.

Been a while since I last messed with it and my Linux skills (damn that sounds corny) have improved over the years. But when I used to drive a systemd distro there would be some service that would stall and I just could not make it work as intended, remembering my frustrations.


To me it’s not about systemd being bad, just a case of it being hella complicated if compared to something like runit. Its reach is so huge it’s overwhelming for my poor brain to grasp.

It’s not you, it’s me kind of a deal haha



;)

I haven’t measured it before. Guessing around -10,-7C somewhere due to residual heat from our living room and the glasseed balcony being wind resistant.

Apple tree, pear, cherry are all cold resistant but obviously unfit for a grow bag on the balcony. I’ve heard there are are types of grapvine that can do swell in hardiness zone 5ish, not sure which kind yet conflicting info on the webz.


Stockholm so, freezing winters. And these days insane tropic summers apparently.

Passion fruit eeeey? That sounds lovely, I’ll check out if there are kinds that can withstand temperatures of ~-15C


Alrighty then, maybe my friend just needs to get over the nginx ddns SSL cert hump faster rather than having multiple accounts.

I’ll tell shim to get yee thumb out of hir arse.


Transfer account to another instance?
Is this a thing that's possible? Asking for an imperialist *friend* who want to hop over to beehaw from lemmy.ml until *friend* has grasped nginx and figured out *friends* own instance on their rpi.

What should I plant in this 50L grow bag? Zone 7a, south facing glassed balcony
Some hardy grapevine? Perennial preferred. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/dde10c2d-3b19-4d63-bc3d-61a0dbf3dc84.jpeg)

The other day I was saying to my wife “There should be trams for large stuff - wide door openings.”.

This tho, I want to know more!


This is the thing I can’t blindly sign up for. It’s disgusting.



And now modern living depends so much upon them that it’s an enormous endeavor to wind this back :S

I’d say it’s an enormous discomfort and an opportunity to create a meaningful living for all - somewhat along the lines of what “antiwork” represents.


I posted a reply but it sort of went nowhere for some reason. Retype, sigh…:

Tell these people that the US needs 300.000.000 EVs among a shit ton of other stuff before the end of 2050, I’m sure they’ll love it. Everyone loves digging for common and rare earth minerals.

Nothing beautiful about data that represents some of the most grueling, back breaking capital-slavery in modern history. Where the motive is to make a single nation somewhat less disgusting emissions-wise. Instead of focusing those trillions of dollars on reductionist approaches.

Don’t trust the salesman.



What's your climate and civilization prediction?
I'll go first: The situation is really dire for keeping the global rise in temperature under 1,5C, not gonna happen as no nation on earth is even close to meeting their own goals let alone those set during COP. From my part of the world, Sweden I'm seeing less green forces being voted for than 10 years ago. Instead, fascists are being given more and more power globally. Governments are touting investments and commitment yet in the grand scheme of things jack all is happening. Eight billion mid-size mammals and counting are competing for comfort and security under various levels of despair under class rule. I'm predicting the charade of investments and commitment as well as the greenwashy non-solutions being held up will soon be turned upside down (~2028) by fascists whom have taken power (~2032) through the fears of people and we'll have a bleak future not unlike [*The Road*](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0898367/) by the end of this century (~2080-2100) as food and water supplies will have destabilized (~2056) due to the unpredictable nature of the climate. ____ Edit: To clarify, I'm not happy about it -.-

Aren’t biofuels just another variant touching the same grand issue? From what I’ve gathered the growing, harvesting and refining biofuels differ wildly but all have in common an rather sizable amount of destructive land use - be it through deforestation, palm oli cultivation or the monoculture aspect of growing crops for fuel. Most of the biofuels are from palm, rapeseed oil or corn and it’s some gosh darn dirty business. The old saying *“can’t eat the cake and keep it” rings true for the climate crisis - going backwards towards some type of neo-classical future, keeping modern knowledge on how to fuck things up while mixing in tried and true concepts like no-til gardening, food conservation, sailing, coppicing and what not would probably be a more sane and doable route for humanity.

I’m 110% certain that the ultimate source of infinite energy, fusion, would be the absolute quickest way to destroy all the remaining living ecosystems on earth.



Near the router. Connected via wifi - usually in the livingroom it’s somewhere round 160mb down.

Love librespeed.org, thanks for sharing :)


So, like what’s your use case? Professional work or just faffing about with stuff at home, procrastinating?

I have no idea why someone like me, a non-professional, would turn to a corporate distribution with a “stable” release model and have it be a Canonical product or similar.

I got into linux for mainly three reasons: I could install the applications in a single neat command using the terminal (that shit was amazing coming from XP); It was not some big tech dictating and changing up my workflow on a whim; Lastly I had a moment of ethical reconing around 2016 and the ethics of FLOSS is superior.

Canonical keep doing things, trying out what sticks on a live audience and it’s generally not liked by people. To me it seems like a very unstable experience. It had its innovative days in the 00’s and it’s all appreciated but since long gone.

Often the critique aimed at Canonical and the Ubuntu team is disregared with “That’s a loud minority” – yes and no. Of the grand total of Ubuntu users there are a huge amounts of casuals and worker bees (tech folk given Ubuntu with little reason to stir up shit at their employment) who are not interested. Then there are those who are very interested in the tech behind the product, the enthusiasts - if you take into account the grand total, sure then there is a loud minority, but why would you take into account a large swath of uninterested people’s non-existing-opinions?

Sorry, went on a semi rant in order to say: if you choose a corporate distro you are going to have a corporate experience. There are independent enthusiast distributions out there that run their ship through enthusiasm and not corporate intentions.

Sure you know all this but I felt like expressing myself this morning haha…


Cool, I pay for sourcehut in order to get Gemini hosting and my shabby scripts hosted somewhere accessible. Nice to see a project like pmos consider Sourcehut.

Not a coder in any shape or form, just a hobbyist with sPeCiAl computer needs :)



Well worth the money being asked for the album!

Helloa! I poped open a community for all things Ukulele, come join if small lute-derived instruments with a funny vibe interests you :)

Idea: Lower the impact for down votes
I made a post on r/ukulele where I seek help finding vegan friendly ukuleles. Instant-down-vote because of the V-word hindering it being discovered by those interested. It's not offensive, I specifically ask to keep discussions on veganism out of it and I stayed polite about the topic - [I think?](https://www.reddit.com/r/ukulele/comments/nmrfse/vegan_friendly_ukuleles/gzqcqsu/?context=3) Mind you this is not the worst case of instant-down-vote of non-controversial or non-offensive honest posts on Reddit. It's the hive-mind-tribe thing of Reddit doing it's thing as usual. What if down votes had reduced "power" or impact/value. Up-votes are a full point and down-votes are .5 or .75 of a point in order to prevent instant-reptile-brain-knee-jerk down-voting because of a small difference in opinion or world view. So that there have to be two people down-voting for one integer point to count. What do you folks think?

Where is Shotwell ratings stored and general photo library management strategies?
I have a system for sorting my photos using the ratings feature. It came about me trying to sort out the insane mess created by phone photography and automagic camera uploads have on your photo library. I needed a quick way to go through marking photos in order to sort out what has value or not. Within Shotwell there are hotkeys for star ratings that are simply the number row with no modifier needed, which alleviates the cramping risk if say you would need to hold ```ctrl+[num]``` while judging 5000+ photos. - 0 is no star rating - 1-5 corresponding amount of stars - 9 rejected I then setup a few *"Saved Searches"* in order to give the ratings meaning. A *Saved Search* takes a number of criteria for what it includes and displays. Other software would probably call these *"Smart Searches". I got seven searches that corresponds to the ratings hotkeys: 0 = Pending judgement 1 = Memorable 2 = Food 3 = Photo notes (scribbles on paper, backside of router..) 4 = Printed 5 = To be printed 9 = Rejects This system has been highly effective in sorting out and continued upkeep of my photo library - however! I did at one point early on after applying this technique nuke my drive for some probably meaningless reason (photos and other files synced up to Mega (a dropbox type thing)). After getting things setup and files synced with Mega as it were before the nuking, I discovered the star ratings were not written as metadata or kept within my Pictures directory. Luckily it was only a ~thousandish photos that had been marked with a rating when this happened which was not a huge loss. ### **TL;DR: I'm wondering where is the star rating information stored so I can sync this information and keep this alongside my photos?** I've recently gotten into KDE and Plasma which has opened up a bunch of software to me which I knew existed but I weren't very interested in checking out due to *dependarexia* and an aversion to mixing GTK and Qt applications on my machine. During my exploration of this new and exciting Qt-world I fired up digiKam which turned out to read all the ratings I had set in Shotwell! So the star ratings must be stored somewhere common - but where? Anyhow - grateful for any information on the topic or perhaps a rundown of your strategies for dealing with photo-bloat and unruly libraries :)

Reorganizing $HOME
I'm looking to restructure my home folder. Have for a long time used the standard XDG user directory structure (```$HOME/{Desktop,Documents,Downloads...}```) and it has become a mess. Also the capitalized directory names are inconvenient for a multitude of reasons. I'll have to set the XDG user variables accordingly. Anyone gone through a process of reorganizing their home directory structure beyond the standard XDG user directory structure. Did you note any oddities refraining from mentioned standards? Here's my initial idea: $HOME ├── desktop ├── documents │   ├── public │   └── templates ├── downloads ├── media │   ├── audio │   │   ├── bleeps │   │   └── music │   ├── e-books │   ├── graphics │   │   ├── 3d │   │   ├── raster │   │   │   ├── palettes │   │   │   └── wallpapers │   │   ├── screenshots │   │   └── vector │   ├── photos │   └── videos ├── sites └── software ├── bin ├── games │   └── roms └── git

Server distro project for super-easy deployment? Help me find it [Solved]
**Edit: distrowatch <3 searching anything "Linux server" in any search engine is a futile action, thanks distrowatch: ** https://yunohost.org/ Found it Yunohost - I think it's real interesting :) once clicked myself to some Linux server distro project that seemed to aim for people like me; that's familiar with Linux on the desktop want to run a few services locally on a server but have less interest in or end up in paralysis every time docker (CE, compose) or Proxmox is mentioned as well as networking. Yoko, yoso, Jolo, something I seem to think I remember it being called, but not hits when searching. Think it was more or less - check the boxes for the things you want to run and it takes care of deployment for you. It had a rather spiffy website. Anyone know what distro I'm thinking of? I want to play around with it :)
