    I even tried what u/ahesford suggested here, which is to install crun in place of runc.

    Oneshot services are done by pausing the service after the executable invoked. See alsa as an example.
  • Brave using xbps-src?
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-04-08
    git clone "https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages.git" cd void-packages Setup ./xbps-src for building packages: ./xbps-src binary-bootstrap I recommend using the xtools package to make things easier: xnew brave Then fill out the template with stuff like where to get the source, build_style, etc. ./xbps-src pkg brave Then xbps-install --repository=hostdir brave or point --repository to where the package got built. If the versioning is weird, add an update file with pattern= to check for updates and update the template and checksum.
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-04-08
    The `ripgrep` package doesn't use an update file. For an example, have a look at the jamulus package I made: https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/blob/master/srcpkgs/jamulus/update

    There is also the packages feed. Not hugely useful, but sometimes you wanna know if a new package came out.

  • Confused about xbps-src and xtools
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-04-03
    https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages#requirements -> In quick start it says I can use xtools to install software instead of xbps-src. I'm hella confused right now about this. Should I just use xtools or xbps-src? I thougt xbps-src is something like aur.
  • No jack-pipewire or similar package?
    reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2021-04-02
    However, I notice there's no pipewire-jack/jack-pipewire package like in other distros. Is it included in the general pipewire package? I looked in the template and I can't tell.
  • Gentoo, KDE Neon or Solus Plasma?
    I haven't installed Gentoo in ages, but I think Void is a good balance between Gentoo and something like Solus or KDE Neon. It's a binary-based distro, but the xbps-src component lets you compile things if you want. It also supports flatpaks.

    reddit.com/r/EeePC | 2021-03-31
    Nice clean example, especially for a white one! You can replace the operating system with something more modern and secure, like Q4OS Trinity or EXE Linux (which have the same look and feel as the original O/S) or maybe Void, antiX or Refracta. For speed, you might like Haiku OS.
