Been away for too long! How is everyone?
After a long time testing some stuff and deciding which way to go, I'm back with Gentoo in the form of Redcore Linux, which I tried some time ago and found a bit glitchy. Now though it seems rock solid. One thing I've notices through is the kde dolphine doesn't use the AFP protocol! Installed Thunar and all is fine.
What are you using now, have you changed recently.

Is there a way, within mastodon, to filter out certain posts, like cats?

Installing on an old thinkpad (R61), needs some non-free drivers for WiFi.
Then onto the E595 which needs non-free? drivers (kernel) blobs for the amdgpu & WiFi.
Question: is libre software/distro yet runs all the hardware fine, why doesn't guixsd?

What's your go to bootloader?
I've had enough of grub. I have 5 linuxes installed & not one grub instance can boot all the other 4 without some kind of manual config intervention.
Suggestions on alternative & why, thanks

[RT @JulianMellentin]
Day 3, Cop26. A fleet of Mercedes (petrol & diesel, not electric, we checked) ferries delegates from city centre hotels. At just one hotel we counted 60 cars waiting. The journey can be accomplished in 15 mins by electric bus or train or 20 mins on foot. But cows are the problem.

@admin How do I apply for registration at your pleroma instance please. I found a registration page but it errors with a 400 code!

Today I'm starting a new Freedom Project.
Four projects under one roof.
First, a secure OS to run from USB for doing "internet stuff annonymusly".
Same OS to run on mobile phone - pinephone to start with.
A secure (as is possible) mobile NAS for the home/office
A mobile webserver.
And a maybe a fifth of a universal mesh network protocol for a private (as not in the hands of large corps) interent.
Exciting times.

What is it with the 5:14 (.14) doing studip things (different distros): not booting (black screen - goes to reboot), dim screen at login, suspend not working, battery charging limits ignored.
Has it got M$ code in it? 😜 😂
Kernel 5:10 far more reliable!
