I'm hesitant to respond; however, I'm doing so.

As human beings, we tend to put up with more from family members than we do with those outside of our family.

I have a son, daughter, nieces, and nephews who do things that I don't agree with. Yet, I love them and extend grace unto them; whereas, I wouldn't put up with the same behavior from others.

Is that right? I don't know. I'm not a psychologist or therapist.

However, I am a father. I have a family. I'm a husband, a father, and an uncle. As such, I will love my family, defend them, and extol their virtues despite anything else.

Would you not do the same for your family?

I can understand what you're saying, but would you not do the same for one of your own family members?

I will bow out of this conversation now.

Take care.

I have long admired the contributions of cynwulf, and I thank you for that.

Ralph or golinux,

If you feel that this thread should be deleted, please do so. blackhole could easily email me (if he wishes) in order to rectify things between us.

I apologize for the things that I've done/said/posted that bring reproach upon the Devuan project. That was never my intention. Please forgive me.

I will soon be offline. I look forward to seeing your answer in order to try and make things right with you. However, I may not see your response for a while. If that's the case, please forgive me.

#6 Re: Off-topic » Out of respect... » 2023-02-11 00:09:52


Can you tell me exactly what I did, said, or posted that offended you?

Great that you made this thread!

And you can, as apparently you have a special licence for this, as proclaimed by the admins here...  and this is now even more apparent to the observer. You're more than just a twat, you're one of the numerous minor embarasssments to this project - thought rest assured your free reign will continue.

Anyone else posting such quality of content would have been quickly censured, but by golinux' own admission you may freely troll this site, due to the significance of your contributions to whatever it is you contribute to... so go ahead my man, knock yourself out.  Let's see what you're all about...

I don't think blackhole is coming back. They think you are a right-wing lunatic. Is that the case? I presumed you were making a joke in the other thread but was I in fact mistaken?


I was joking around in the other witnessed by the multiple "LOLs, Hahahas, Tee Hees" and the various emojis that I included in my posts.

I may have taken it too far with saying that the waiteress made me want to puke, but he did. It was a windy day, and all I could think about was that dude had so much gnarly hair, I was afraid one of his hairs would get in my food.

You better know that I was inspectin' that shite after he delivered it!!! big_smile and I differ in our social and political views; however, I can honestly say this...

I have the utmost respect for you. I consider you as a friend, and I can truthfully say that I hold you in my mind and heart with nothing less than honor, dignity, and respect.

You and I both know that I like to poke at you at times, and you have always handled it with a grain of salt. For that, I thank you.

However, I took things a little too far lately. For that, I apologize.

I honestly thought that you would be the one who responded to my "Disney Waiteress" post and asked me why it made me want to puke (which I answered above).

My bad.

HoaS, thank you for letting me joke around with you. Take care my friend.

Out of respect to blackhole (who is well-known in the Debian community for his myriad of multiplicatiousness of favorable contributions...and despite his lack of proper English construction on this site tongue ), and despite my previous post; in which, I asked to be identified as something else...I now identify myself as a twat. From this point forward, please only refer to me as Sir Twatsalot.

Tee Hee...


Edit: because of stuff n'such. Sorry if that upsets you blackhole. Just be a man and get over it. tongue

Imagine my surprise when my family went to Disney World...

...and we were hungry.

So...we went to an eatery in the Magic Kingdom.

The Waiteress that took our order was obviously a guy, but he was wearing a dress and a bonnet. The dude hadn't even shaved his face or his stinkin' lanky legs. Freaking hair everywhere....made me wanna puke.

Yeah....that's right wing.

Please stop this nonsense, it has totally derailed this topic.

As far as Disney, I can speak with authority since both my wife and I have worked for them.

As of now...and as it has been for years, there is nothing about the Disney company that leans "right". They are by far to the "left". Whether the change in their current structure will change things remains to be seen.

...but I'm just some guy on the internet, so don't take my word for it.

#13 Re: Off-topic » Idle chatter nonsense » 2023-02-04 04:11:03


Just be satisfied with what you believe.

It doesn't matter if others agree with you or not. As long as you're convinced, that's all that matters in your life.

I could get all in a hissy-fit over things that I read on here, but it does me no good.

So, I look at things that I don't agree with openly. It expands my thinking.

...and then I throw that shit out with the garbage...

Hahahahaha!  tongue

Does that answer your inquisition, or would you like me to answer your inquisitoriousness more inquisitorornessly?



#15 Re: Off-topic » Idle chatter nonsense » 2023-02-03 23:21:01

If I were Google, I'd have a stinkin' crook in my back from leaning to the left so much...


#16 Re: Off-topic » Idle chatter nonsense » 2023-02-03 23:12:03

Forgot to say that I saw your post that you asked me to notify you after I read the post. tongue

I can safely say say that Google leans more...uncomfortably...with their tongue hanging the left.

They like rainbows n'stuff.

...but that's just me. I'm just some guy on the internet who can't be trusted. smile

#21 Re: Other Issues » can't run Thunar as user: segmentation fault » 2023-02-01 20:35:41


The majority of it is Debian. Moreover, it's ftp.

When I used ftp sources on Debian...back when I used Debian...the ftp gave me several issues and made me have a nervous-jerkdown and commit I switched to the deb repo, and life was like a butterfly fluttering across a field of wildflowers on a cool Spring morning while songbirds resonated their tunes in my ear.

However,  that was many years ago, and the Debiansters may have changed stuff n'such by now.

I'll gracefully bow out now.  tongue

#22 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware » 2023-02-01 16:40:18

Yes (No??? tongue ), it doesn't work on my chimaera installation. The OP referenced Debian unstable, so it probably hasn't worked its way down yet. If it does work its way down.

Unfortunately, I don't have a daedalus installation to try it on, but it does work on ceres.

#23 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware » 2023-02-01 11:46:01

deb ceres main contrib non-free non-free-firmware

#24 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware » 2023-02-01 11:44:38


I just added that to my ceres ... unstable sources.list.

After doing so, I had 8 updates to items that would normally be upgraded without that item in the sources.list. yikes

So, on my end, it appears that it should be added to the sources.list.

Debian apparently now recommends users who already have non-free and/or contrib in their sources to add the non-free-firmware entry to ensure that future access to non-free software continues:

deb unstable main contrib non-free non-free-firmware

Do I have to do the same for the Devuan-sources-list?

deb ceres main contrib non-free

Devuan recommends using the actual release names rather than the generic release names.
