#openbsd 6.9 is out.
I've been using one as a router since 6.8 came out and gotta say it has worked beautifully.
It has been set up and forget despite I'm running it virtualized with kvm and pci passthrough .
using systemd-boot and systemd-networkd and systemd-resolved in arch. what next #systemd
So i made a matrix chat room for newb programmers like myself to ask questions and not feel like a complete moron of course also to talk about coding stuff in general. Feel free to join. :) #newbprogramming:matrix.org
People seem to prefer distros with newer packages for desktop and well battle tested and with older packages for servers.
I''m the opposite. I have run fedora servers and now a testing arch based vps and have yet to meet any problems.
On the desktop on other hand, bleeding edge distros give me headaches all the time.
what are you using as a xmpp client on #pinephone?
#debian gnome testing now says 11 in logon screen. also zfs on root still works nicely.
Installed #xmpp server. Now I have one contact there.
Does somebody actually use #openpgp in their emails?
I'm planning a blog series for #selfhosting where I start installing a linux server from scratch. This is meant for users not so familiar with the topic.
It is supposed to offer an alternative for most used big tech services like photos, messaging (whatsapp), calendar etc.
But I'm struggling with my first post on why to do this without sounding like a tinfoil hat guy which is not approachable to an average person at all.
Any ideas why a regular person would be interested in this topic?
Since this is a trending topic, I'm gonna keep ranting about this.
Despite me ranting often against them, I do think they are the best solution IF you or somebody you trust is willing to spent the necessary effort.
People who spent a lot of time with computers tend to often forget, this is far from easy for most.
If we now get a big surge on #signal users, I wonder how much server capacity they have. Is there going to be issues with this?
