And I'm all like "Why the fuck is 'Base 31'?"
And then I was all like amateur math nerd for an hour and loved it.

Hell, I didn't need to have a study done to know this. Just look around you. This past four or so years in the U.S. have brought many Neanderthals to prominence in government, media, and elsewhere.
(actually those 30 days aren't consecutive at all...)
Basically I reached the point where Xorg, Lightdm, #XFCE4 (core) and Firefox were installed.
At this point the big surprise was that #Firefox comes along a long list of missing features... WOW! Totally unexpected.
Then the lack of the volume control makes me discovering the audio wasn't setup and the pulse-audio-plugin which replaces the previous Xfce plugin's panel is not shipped anymore with Xfce.
The setup the audio was been a bit convoluted but easy since is well explained in the handbook, and for the audio I installed the old good volumeicon applet...
Then I tested the audio with FF and YT but it looks like the laptop can handle 1080p video without acceleration hence I installed Chromium and the mesa VA and VDPAU packages, I am not really sure if the latter are related with Chromium and video acceleration, but Chromium does video acceleration with YT although the wifi card has some hiccups and it is a bit unstable.
Lastly I tried to install #Lagrange which is available only as ports but after 3 hours of compiling only half of the dependencies required I gave up; this induced me three depth thoughts:
- binary packages are extremely important!
- I had better to find a native Gemini client for FreeBSD.
- How do I clean up all the gazillion of the dependencies required?
This laptop has never been very powerful to hand any video and I used to have compositing disabled all the time, also it also got stuck with Lightdm and the log-on for some undiscovered issues, mostly related with systemd, anything of this happened with FreeBSD; thus so far, so good; but I think FreeBSD deserves more love from Mozilla. I hope to improve the streaming situation next time...
It’s interesting how breaking out of a routine that you’ve developed messes with you. It took a long time for my legs to wake up. Even then, I felt like I was walking in sand the whole time.
It will be easier tomorrow. #movement
I have been pretty tired about Linux since a while and I look forward to get rid off all the toxicity that every days poisoning the free software culture.
Looks like the BSD realm is cleaner, more resilient and more unix mindset oriented.
I look forward to a positive outcome and make the use of computer funny again!!!
