#1 Re: Off-topic » USA Foods » 2024-02-19 21:27:25

My uncle who lived in USA for 20 years, say that meat from Türkiye tastes superior to the ones in USA. He says it's because of CAFO feeding operation. Cows in USA don't eat and forage naturally like Türkiye's. So naturally we have better tasting meat, we don't have that much CAFO operations as of now.

Wayland is buggy as hell since release, with some minor tweaks firefox works, kind of. Do the devs not care about wayland at all? If it's not a goal, that's alright. Just wanna know for sure.

It gives some dbus error. The name xorg xfce panel was not provided by any .service files

#4 Installation » SSH asks for passphrase on XFCE, but not on GNOME please help » 2024-01-28 22:33:11

Replies: 0

I am pulling my hair over this stupid thing here. On debian there is no such problem like this. ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa works, but I don't want to do it every time I log in. It's nuts. There are various "fixes" all around the internet, none of them work.
Simply put I want ssh-agent to add ssh thing to the thing at startup, and not ask me passphrase every time. Is this so hard, I don't get it.

#5 Installation » No sound on XFCE until I do xfce4-panel -r » 2024-01-28 19:06:16

It didn't even work at start. Until I used this guide:
But that only works partially, without xfce4-panel -r manually, I still don't have sound. How to do this?

As I say I recently installed KDE. I watched movies from my local FTP server. On XFCE with MPV it worked. With KDE it doesn't work.

I liked it better. Also blue light bad, but that crimson red was cool. Also please can someone make dark mode out of that?

#9 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] I use pipewire and sound doesnt work in XFCE unti I do xfce4-panel -r » 2023-10-30 00:33:22

That worked. Thanks. Although this is just a temporary fix. It might get borked in the future releases.

#10 Installation » [SOLVED] I use pipewire and sound doesnt work in XFCE unti I do xfce4-panel -r » 2023-10-29 19:15:19

I used this guide to install pipewire:

I checked, it actually works but xfce4-panel is late to update that. So there is an sound icon with x on it, meaning like it doesn't work. Then I do xfce4-panel -r then it works again.

How to make it so I don't have to type xfce4-panel -r everytime?

#11 Desktop and Multimedia » SSH won't ask to save my password for later in terminal(XFCE) » 2023-10-27 10:45:21

Replies: 1

In debian there comes a window asks me "this PC wants to unlock this passphrase" there is a tick that says, save this password. I don't have it. I use ssh passphrases btw and they are not empty. Let me tell you this function works in debian. Prolly not related to systemd either. How to do this?

And no I don't wanna use empty passphrases, I didn't use empty in debian so why should I use on devuan?

#12 Documentation » EFISTUB works perfectly on devuan with official debian wiki instructio » 2023-10-26 10:02:56

This guide also applies to devuan. I used manual method. It works.
But why do this? Let's say you have 2 linux distros installed. One kernel updates, the other one doesn't update unless you log in to that and update it's grub too. This prevents this. The kernel changes are applied immediately. It boots under 7 seconds for me in SATA SSD btw.

Only one thing, if you use say like xanmod kernel, don't use the /vmlinuz and /initrd file. They are for stock kernel. That will just boot into the stock kernel. Instead do this for your kernel versions. Change the version numbers appropriately:
sudo mv /boot/initrd.img-6.5.8-x64v3-xanmod1 /boot/efi/EFI/Devuan/initrd.img
sudo mv /boot/vmlinuz-6.5.8-x64v3-xanmod1 /boot/efi/EFI/Devuan/vmlinuz

grrr screw their developers really. Way to blow a good software like this.. Just tie it to systemd. It's not even related to systemd in any way. Why do this? I don't get it...

It was called gummiboot before. I don't know why they added it to the systemd. Anyway, is it possible to install that?

#15 Re: Installation » Can't install wine-stable on devuan 5, dependency hell » 2023-10-05 20:18:47

It's the winehq version of wine for debian. I had wine installed already but devuan's wine has problems. Doesn't work properly. So I install winehq version.

#17 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Nvidia and Chimaera - driver 535? » 2023-09-10 02:04:44

Nvidia 535 too much problems yet. Even for windows. Too much problems on latest games. Better go for 525 for a while.

#18 Re: Installation » Devuan 5 daedalus gnome wayland doesn't work with nvidia » 2023-09-10 02:03:51

Interesting that is, KDE Wayland works with nvidia. With small tinkering. But gnome still doesn't work. In gnome, also inxi -F doesn't work in terminal properly. It just stops. Very weird behaviour.

#19 Re: Installation » suspend on straight Wayland setup » 2023-09-07 21:48:27

How do you even run wayland? No apps work on me on wayland, no firefox, chromium, brave. Even neofetch or inxi on terminal doesn't work.

#20 Re: Devuan » Devuan is much faster on older hardware than debian(celeron n3050) » 2023-09-07 15:39:51

I actually have 4GB RAM only. But I don't use RAM that much, I think it's that systemd uses more CPU rather than RAM. I have half the RAM empty most of the time.

#22 Devuan » Devuan is much faster on older hardware than debian(celeron n3050) » 2023-08-30 16:15:04

Replies: 4

I have this celeron n3050. Technically it's statistically harder to say on newer hardware if devuan is better or not. Because margins are smaller. Let's say i7 gen, it's already too fast CPU. Devuan would only be faster like 30miliseconds and you can't know it.

But since this CPU is crappy, I can say devuan is much much faster. This CPU is even worse than core 2 duo laptops from 2008. Mind you it works terribly slow even on debian. For example, scrolling on reddit, on something like ebay? Terribly slow. But with devuan this laptop rocks. Much much faster. Linux mint is shit compared to this. Devuan shines on older hardware I can say that with confidence. I mean ebay is much faster what else can I ask for?

#23 Re: Installation » Trying to install wine32 results in deleting all gnome and xfce » 2023-08-29 22:38:42

I have plenty of space, only gdm3 doesn't work. I reinstalled slim, then logged in succesfully. Tried gdm3 again, still can't login. Something wrong with GDM3. Slim works even with gnome.

I've read in archlinux subreddit that it has solved archlinux's many problems. That's why they adopted it. In the most upvoted answer here: … e_systemd/

So is it like better of the two devils situation here? I actually like sysvinit better, but let's not call a spade a spade, is systemd that bad?
