I just installed Void on a spare partition but run into a few problems so I’ll bundle all my questions here.
1 - The login doesn’t work. If I enter the username and user password I used during the install nothing happen. I tried to login with the same username and password in text mode and it seems the username wasn’t registered.
If I login as root, nothing happen unless I click on reboot (weird), then I get into xfce.
2 - If I login as root and configure the keyboard with xfce, still the arrow keys do not work properly in the shell.
3 - Since my laptop use broadband drivers for the wifi, I did the following:
A - Downloaded the broadband driver from Void repo and put it on a USB.
B - created the directory /opt/pak/broadcom-wl-dkms-18.104.22.1681_6.i686.xbps
C - #xbps-rindex -a /opt/pak/broadcom-wl-dkms-22.214.171.1241_6.i686.xbps
D - #xbps-install --repository=/opt/pak/broadcom-wl-dkms-126.96.36.1991_6.i686.xbps
Still I get message xpbs cannot find package in repository.
4 - I tried to configure the wifi manually but when I enter the command:
I get the message
#sh. command not found.
I have read the wiki but couldn’t find the answers to my doubt.
Void seems a cool distro, I just need to find my way around it.
