Your WTFs and frustrations in Void


#117

Don’t worry, I’m pretty bad at that too, despite how long I’ve been using Linux-based distributions :slight_smile:

It should be inserted somewhere between the installation of the required packages to the desired path and actual chroot’ing.

So, let’s say, after mount -t devpts pts /mnt/dev/pts and before cd /mnt.

Done! :slight_smile:

@deepdark

Please can you let me know how you solved your print to pdf issues ? I am not sure what 3rd party software you installed to get this going.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

Mudra

woops, don’t log in here much @Mudra but you can try xbps-query -Rs cups


#121

My frustration is scrolling to the end of long Discourse threads on Void forum.

drag the slider on the right hand side :slight_smile:

@nixit drag the timeline up and down with your mouse, much easier.


#124

Type any command in your terminal, for example:

$ date
Sat Jul 22 18:22:22 CEST 2017

Now if you type !! , it will repeat the previous command:

$ !!
date
Sat Jul 22 18:22:24 CEST 2017

WTF?? :clown_face:
I was not aware of this command.


(Xlaits Xavier) #125

It’s the very last color tag in the program going that.


#126

You can also use sudo !! to run the previous command with sudo, useful if you forgot to type it


(Masato the Empty) #127

let’s see…

[bang] [bang] [enter] vs [up_arrow] [enter] or [ctrl-p] [enter] - bit of a tossup (it’s all pinky fingers either way unless yo move your hand to hit the arrow keys) ctrl-p might have an edge if you’re used to it.

[ctrl-p] [ctrl-a] sudo [space] [enter] vs sudo [bang] [bang] enter - I guess @keepbotting has the edge.

(still won’t make a bash user of me again… anyone ever use r in ksh? :stuck_out_tongue:)


#128

Thank you for this one, very useful !! :grinning:


(oliver) #129

Only when I have to use the ancient Solaris boxes at work.


(M. Dietrich) #130

i did not complain about shipping but on dependency of the base-system package.


#131

Unfortunately not having an updated web browser is a real deal breaker.
Chromium is now two full releases behind.
I assume it’s a lot of work to keep it updated with glibc and musl version but for the end user, he’s still using an outdated browser, which is a no-go.
I’ll keep Void on my notebook to play around with it and learn some things about writing templates myself and hopefully I can contribute in the future but for now I have to migrate my desktop back to OpenBSD or Gentoo.


#132

I frustrated because of the latest update with boost, break some package… I recently updating my system, not weekly.
What this happened in the last time with python3.6… and much more later resolved my problem. (with Gentoo, I rebuild the prefer version and working.)
What is the cycle when I update safely my system? weekly, monthly?
I don’t want miss the Voidlinux, but some thing working wrong.


(Erin) #133

Please post further detail of what was broken and some error messages would help.


#134

I already reported this issue #7807

Boost is being rebuilt. Should be fixed soon.


(Jacob Moen) #135

When something breaks, usually it is fixed in a matter of hours.

I would recommend updating at a daily basis.


(Jacob Moen) #136

I just updated; it should be good now! :slight_smile:
