  • Distro for a few years old cheap laptop
    I think Arch-based distros like arch, arcolinux, archcraft or instantos are suite for your laptop. More over you can use void or gentoo if you are experienced user.
  • gns3 failing to start
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-09-11
    That is my fault. Well, my fault that it isn't fixed yet. I'm the maintainer of the gns3-server and gns3-gui packages. A while back the python3-distro package was updated without updating the gns3 packages so the requirements file is out of sync with what's available in void-packages. I am working on a PR that upgrades GNS3 and updates the dependencies to match what is available in void-packages. Here is the PR: https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/pull/32737.

    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-09-10
    If you're intent on using the latest Julia, why not edit the Julia template and rebuild it with (xbps-src)[https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/]?
  • Fixed 😊 (sorry for posting this twice, the first one made it look like a repost of someone else’s meme)
    void is void

    You will have to create template, refer to the manual!
  • Problems using NitroKey Pro
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-09-02
    I installed these packages (gnupg2-scdaemon, pcsc-ccid and libnitrokey) although I am not sure if I need all of them. NitroKey is recognized by dmesg and with root everything looks good, so I assume that maybe a group is missing for my own user?
  • Creating packages for local repo
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-08-29
    You can use git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages.git to clone the repository without history. This is significantly faster.

    So basically void linux plus trinity (TDE) or mate for the continuation of kde 3 or gnome 2.

    There is an issue to package TDE for void and it apparantly can be built.
