Unfortunately, using Void is not for me (although I love the system), as base-system and linux are required packages and they both install proprietary drivers

Logan Nguyen

I'd use it if:
- There was a way to automatize port building/configuration like Gentoo (or at least like Dfly's synth)
- Or even USE flags. Flavors are shit and Free/Dragonfly handle this better.

Dragonfly seems pretty good right now (but I'm comfy on Gentoo).

I would prefer source based management as well, pkgsrc from netbsd seems really awesome, I wish it was in base. It already has support for OpenBSD too.
This is a general issue with BSDs, they don't share enough, they tend to fork and then never interact with one another again. I'd love to see OpenBSD devs work on Hammerfs as well for example.
ffmpeg doesn't follow release the version is just the date from when it's cloned from git and compiled.
zimg just doesn't have a port maintainer.

Void is broken as hell, nothing unusual about a new distro. The problem is their disinterest in fixing what's broken at all, see the freetype bug that still, after 6 months, hasn't been fixed. So I tossed it and installed gentoo instead. Not looking back at all

Freetype is still broken on some my hardware, not just electron but any program that uses freetype, a perfect example is chromium glitching out until resized. On other systems I had several other dealbreaking problems, like iommu being forced on through the kernel settings causing uncountable arbitrary issues (fixed by recompiling it), vfio freezing the entire system when unbinding hardware, cmake completely ignoring the configuration, fucking up the raspberry pi kernel on one update, the kernel completely ignoring grub flags, xbps-src installation being generally unwieldy, etc.
It works fine if you're gonna use it as a facebook machine, for everything else it's just too much of a pain.

On the other hand runit is a dream, and xbps is a great package manager, albeit the naming being sometimes painful (screenFetch) and the mantainers being blithering idiots.

iommu being forced on through the kernel settings causing uncountable arbitrary issues (fixed by recompiling it), vfio freezing the entire system when unbinding hardware, cmake completely ignoring the configuration
I can't help with those. Did you posted this issues on forum or asked on irc?
fucking up the raspberry pi kernel on one update
well, if it happens then there is an option in grub to boot older kernels
the kernel completely ignoring grub flags
should work. how did you change them?
xbps-src installation being generally unwieldy
github.com/chneukirchen/xtools
cd void-packages; xi package
xbps is a great package manager, albeit the naming being sometimes painful
package names are the same as in they source github.com/KittyKatt/screenFetch that's why they are case sensitive
but xbps-query is case insensitive, so it shouldn't be a problem

Why?
I'm using it right now and it's pretty awful. Runit is extremely fast and LibreSSL is a nice plus, but it doesn't have anywhere near as large a repo as Gentoo or Arch+Aur. Package descriptions are pretty bad too and I don't know if I'm getting w3m or w3m+img-w3m. Besides those two pros, I also don't know why I would use Void over another distro. The selling point is "Its package system allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection" which mosts distros can do out of the box (and have a decent selection of packages).

And when something goes wrong, it's pretty hard to diagnose. Atleast with OpenBSD you get a mail archive and some logs. I don't know what the fuck is going on with my system when urxvt decides to shit the bed. Installing was kind of fucky too. Grub can't work with f2fs, but the installer allowed you to do it anyway without any warnings or indication it was not going to work. Messed around with it a little bit before I found the grub error and researched what the fuck it meant. Otherwise, it was pretty quick.

Wiki is kind of lean. Some things are missing info like how to setup automatic wpa_supplicant (it's easy to do, but still). Other times, it looks like a paragraph was spliced out and the writing doesn't make sense. I almost feel bad for calling this distro shit, because it doesn't seem like it's getting any love and people are genuinely wasting away their lives and all that they could become on this hunk of trash. I'll just switch back to Windows on this machine.

update today
DM stops working but startx works fine
turns out dbus broke and can't be fixed regardless of what I try
runit/s6 forces dead stuff to restart immediately with no limit to failures which means the broken dm gets restarted in a loop and I have to boot into a live distro to fix this
Every single distro is a broken piece of garbage holy shit. I tried void because it was pretty much the last distro I hadn't tried. It's just as broken and unstable as everything else except runit is even worse than systemd at keeping a system usable.

Cameron Morris
Cameron Morris

Apparently if you set void to install from local source it will imitate the configuration of the live image. Neat!

Anyway lxde from the repo is somehow fucked, if you install it from a minimal install when it runs it just shows 3 white blocks that have what looks like a terminal prompt in each one and a shitty clock sprite in the top right corner.

You must've been doing something weird to nuke your distro. I think I only ever killed a distro once and that was fucking arch.

Luis Davis

I wholeheartedly recommend the man pages. The only reason I ever started using them, was because I jumped into OpenBSD headfirst and HAD to customize my setup or else my workflow would be neutered. If you're running X11, do
man Xorg and scroll down to the "See Also." Look through all the files that start with X.

Usually setup is as simple as changing .xsession to have:
exec windowmanager &
The Arch wiki also has some guides that work for Linux in general if you tweak them a bit.

Should work now or atleast give you enough to debug better. Couldn't for the life of me figure out dhcpcd hooks (wiki was shit) so I just put it in a startup file.

about wifi, it's really easy

there is also wifish package (pic rel) or wpa_cli

I don't much like OpenBSD's method of updating, but really that's not much of a reason to avoid it.
I did install Gentoo once before, but I've never had good luck with CLI networking, and I couldn't into it. All I want is an easy way to get into a network manager and DE and do everything from there.

No, it's a binary distro, so it's crazy to provide packages without dbus support or something like this, because it would fuck most of software and force normal users to waste their time adding basic stuff
Like i said, you can exclude whatever you don't like with xbps-src or just install cloveros

that will load in every possible command line browser.

PdaNet+ is the only tethering app I know of that hides tether usage from T-Mobile.

I would be doing what you're doing but I caught the reproducibility bug and am now stuck on NixOS, I will move to GuixSD if it ever gets out of beta.

I want NixOS mixed with IPFS mixed with docker mixed with a reproducible compiler. This would allow for totally reproducible systems deployable to any environment. At the moment none of those tools by themselves actually accomplish that very well. NixOS has repos that will go down eventually, IPFS has no package mechanism, docker is too dependent on a dynamic build environment (the internet) that will change.

Julian Lewis

NixOS doesn't need docker, NixOS and GuixSD deprecate docker.

The word "yea" in an archaic context is used to conjoin two separate sentences, oftentimes paired with a semicolon and is in no way similar to the word "yeah" in definition. The modern use of the word "yea" is a formal way of showing consent; e.g. "yea or nay?" In either form, the word "yea" is isn't even phonetically comparable to the word "yeah", as "yea" is pronounced like the word "yay", which is why people will oftentimes conflate "yea" with "yay" when confirming assent, o þe of little intellect.

All conventional pack managers are dependent on a collection of package servers. Trry updating an old version of Ubuntu, or NixOS, or Fedora. It won't work because the servers are down or the packages deleted. Obviously you could run a mirror for everything but who the fuck wants to do that.

Dominic Ramirez

You want to have reproducible builds of discontinued and unsupported versions of an entire OS without mirroring the repos, either the binaries or the source files, or building an image. Not even IPFS would keep mainstream availability of shit like Gimp 0.99, let alone whole fucking repos of useless, unpatched and obscure bitrotting retro software. If you really want to stay out of the loop for so long, you should ensure it yourself.

Obviously you could run a mirror for everything but who the fuck wants to do that.
People who really want reproducibility because they need it rather than because they like memeing on imageboards about it generally do that. NixOS was built with that in mind.

This is needed in so many cases, unironically yes.

People who really want reproducibility because they need it rather than because they like memeing on imageboards about it generally do that.
The fork github repos for libraries they use, no one ever does that for their OS repositories. And it would be 10x less labor if they did not HAVE to do that.

because i'm using arch linux

might try gentoo one day but Arch Linux is just workable for whatever. You can compile your own stuff if you want and their binaries are up to do date.

There's usually a way to build the stuff you need on it too, even if you do have to make a container etc

Installed it yesterday and noticing some stupity with it.
xbps-query, by default only brings up a list of currently installed packages, not those listed in the repo; so if I want to do say - $sudo xbps-query emacs it returns nothing unless you give it the -R switch to explicitly search the registered repo. Kinda silly behavior.
And I hate when a package maintainer just symlinks firefox to GNU icecat, which seems to be the case here as on Debian or Ubuntu. For instance, on the version of Icecat I have from the repo it allows playback of DRM content, something which I find appaling to be included at all; along with google search being the default, but the GNU icecat page says it uses DDG for the default.
Overall, not very impressed. Gonna try NixOS with GUIX next.
