    Project mention: Toolship: A (More) Secure Workstation | | 2023-09-20

    I'm running silverblue but running my containers through distrobox. Both toolbox and distrobox are running on podman under the hood, so it's the same technology as far as I understand. However, distrobox has some interesting features relevant to this idea of development isolation. One is that it has an assemble feature[1] built-in. Where you can feed it a recipe file and it will build or rebuild containers accordingly. The other is that it allows setting a custom home directory for the container, among other host/container isolating options[2].

    Perfomance wise my containers take a couple MiB of rams and no perceptible CPU usage when not in use. At least as far as I can tell.

    Project mention: Some web pages are not loading properly | /r/india | 2023-05-07

    I am using arch linux. For me github is loading very slow and sometimes web pages are not loading properly. For ex this github repo - keeps on loading and even after loading some images (like the drop down images) doesn't load properly. Only facing this problem with github and no other websites. Tried to go to github on my mobile (jio) and facing the same problem. Anyone having the same problem ?

    Project mention: WiFi and Ethernet disconnecting on Asus X670E-E (AX210 / I225-V) | /r/archcraft | 2023-07-05

    I did try other kernels and what worked with me is to basically create a custom arch install. There seems to be a specific kernel/driver combination that works well with the WiFi/Ethernet drivers on my board and I can't just force some wifi drivers on the current kernel (I think 81.ucode is the latest one for the wifi but its using a version lower than that which I've already tested by force loading). For now I'm very much thankful that you can basically study and copy Archcraft's code/packages/configs (and my backups as well) and set it up on my custom arch install though it did take a few hours but I probably managed to restore 90% of my previous setup as everything is already on github. As a bonus, I did use u/adi1090x polybar-themes as well ( and study to integrate that pywal effect and basically add and integrate that on top of the default themes. But its just too cumbersome to edit one by one rather than having an already available distro so I'm still hoping for a permanent fix if any of you guys have an idea.

  • winesapOS

    winesapOS - Game with Linux anywhere, no installation required!

    Project mention: 5 years ago Valve released Proton forever changing Linux gaming | | 2023-08-21

    I run winesapOS[0] which is based on SteamOS and was able to repurpose an old Toshiba notebook for my kids, running Freddy Fish* and other games. Windows 10 doesn't run smoothly (even though it came with Windows 10) and I'm not going to run anything older than that.

    * Yes, ScummVM is available for Linux but the Steam Linux distribution included an old ScummVM which wasn't able to load some libraries. Running the Windows version through an compatibility layer was easier than modifying shell files to run the latest ScummVM through flatpak.
