Personal Blog...


Hi Guys,

I would like to open a blog speaking about my personal misadventure with my Computer...

I would like to use a platform which is open, free and gratis... I found that Frama Site has already all these feature but I would like to ask if you know also other services like that one.

Thanks in advance!

It says:

Publish to the fediverse

Reach outside your own site with federation via ActivityPub. WriteFreely lets anyone on Mastodon, Pleroma, or any ActivityPub-enabled service follow your blog, bookmark your posts, and share them with their followers. See how it works.


Not sure how it works though, but there is a video...

@Daniel looks like it works like RSS - one can subscribe to WF blogs so their postings will appear in the feed and can be bookmarked, reshared and discussed with other contacts - but again no interactivity with the author.

Although I suppose if the author wants it they can subscribe to their own blog and then reshare postings from it :)



 

Distro personal crisys (an open letter to myself... )


tl;dr I think this is something that happens from time to time but I think I need to change distro for a while. And I just realized this long post is for me, because I have to deal with my ideals and I am not really happy to do that, but I am not having fun with Debian recently and I need to solve it.


After ten years of #Debian I see Debian changing in something that I don't recognize or I don't feel comfortable with it. Many years ago Debian was also synonymous of innovations, on every fields, today what happens in Debian is, along to slow, behind the scene, like the Risc-V port but for the Desktop area there is nothing exciting and since the #systemd debate I had the feelings that Debian simply refused to lead in favor on just following the events. I mean I am really prone to think if tomorrow Ubuntu is shipped with Just snaps that Debian will follow the same, honestly... show more

@Debacle

Thanks for sharing that video, it was very interesting.

@Daniel Glad you like it!



 

Misadventure in GUIX #2


Last time I tried GuixSD, I was unable to install it on Virtual Box, but with the latest build I was able to install it as any other distro...

This is already a big success and then I tried to explore a bit how it works... The main goal for now is to install the "guest addition" in order to have better performance on the VM.

The first limit I found is the documentation, actually I always have been finding the Linux man pages uneasy to understand, somehow cryptic, with improbably examples. Anyway, First thing I tried to understand if there were collections that can help to get all the packages I needed for the build from source but I didn't find any. I found some packages that download with them a lot of others packages, so basically I had should be ready.

Then I inserted the virtual cd but there wasn't any virtual cd. I checked the setting of the DE, I installed XFCE4, and everything was already properly set up then I thought maybe was a matter of permits and groups. Actually I wasn't in cdrom group so I tried to add my user but there wasn't the package, then I... show more

Thank you very much for mentoring me, actually I was unable to find or create the configuration system file.

So until I don't understand how where it is or how to create it, I'll be likely unable to achieve anything.

Just another question but if gdm is not installed but just "linked" to my profile how can I remove it? Manually?

Thanks... 🍺

If you used the graphical installer, the system declaration file is probably /mnt/etc/config.scm.

I'm not sure to understand your question, however. "installed" really means "associated to your profile" so GDM cannot be "associated" but not "installed".
