I got good influence on computers around me. They sometimes magically fix themselves to avoid my wrath 😆
@TeddyDD Trying to avoid percussive maintenance haha
@TeddyDD That's rare. Many people have the opposite aura.
How can I make Arch fear me enough that it stops refusing to even install lol
(for real though nvm, when I ditch old slow Debian I'll probably just switch to Ubuntu, don't have time for manual configuration any more)
@hubret @faun @TeddyDD
I spent the better part of February configuring Manjaro, realized it was Openbox I liked instead of Arch, went for AVLinux (Custom Debian, unmaintained as of last year), found a well-configured algorave environment, and making do with XFCE until I can configure an Openbox session.
Being able to install downloaded Debian packages is way better than building something like Praxis Live, which turns out to be an IDE sitting on top of an IDE...
@hubret @faun @gpsych @TeddyDD
I've been eyeing Crunchbang's successor, Bunsenlabs, which is also Debian-based.
I haven't had success with switching out xfwm4 with Openbox, and difficulty making a new session work on my install, but doing things is more important than looking nice. And it's time to start doing things.
Yeah I get that feeling about rolling release: If the most recent configuration of packagespace is broken well you just have to go on the forum and see if anyone has a fix yet
Still.. It's kind of better than having everything years out of date always (and *still* having package conflicts occasionally)
and Nix's "installations of different versions don't interfere with each other" may be perfect
@faun heck If I know 😆 Those sentient assholes realize I won't let go so they might as well work properly lol
Ubuntu is pretty nice when you need things to „just works”. I use Void as daily driver, but I'v got Ubuntu as backup and for gaming.
