#1 Installation » How to change kernal to an old one - 20 Oct 2022 » 2022-10-20 07:30:49

Replies: 4


How does a person go back in kernel editions with Devuan and Debian

Current 6.0.0-1
Old - 5.7 or 5.8

Interesting notes about 5.8

I would like to try Libre Kernel instead of the mainstream kernel also

Once back on 5.7 or 5.8 , how do I hard fix Devuan and Debian to NEVER 'upgrade' to a 'new' version
for at least two years


Reason to go back

AMD RX 580 + Steam + Proton = games Crash eg Metro Exodus and Insurency Sandstorm (proton exp)


* If it doesnt happen to you I dont care
- Just because your 1 percent or single case doesnt happen
does not mean the other 99% arnt effected and its not a trend

* No Im not buying NVIDIA

* No Im not buying a different AMD card


I ran steam today in the command line and in sandstorm it came up with a page fault error
Ive got a 8 gig swap partition AND 32gb of DDR4

See this forum thread for technical discussion around it :-

PSA for AMDGPU users: kernel 5.19 (and likely 6.0)
is affected by common page fault/fence timeout/gpu hang

I recommend using
* Built in repo (apt get/arch/etc)
* Portable tar.gz programs
* Appimage

Ive used LibreWolf appimage on multiple distros including ARCH and DEBIAN based and Dev1

I personally dont recommend CLOUD, DRM, Vendor Lockin , online appstores that 'require' login or internet


Download latest LibreWolf Appimage from
- mainpage -
- git server -

Current Appimage as of 26/Sept/2022

Bloody awesome , that is great !!!

Ive been using QasMixer and Volumeicon-alsa
I dont like ((( pulse audio )))  , ((( wayland ))) or ((( pipewire )))

Have you got it shared as an deb file so people with Debian and Debian distros can use it too ???

So people know
* Palemoon - works with ALSA
* LibreWolf - Works with ALSA
* Ungoogled Chromium - Works with ALSA
* Shortcut video editor - Works with ALSA
* Smplayer - Works with ALSA
* Simple Screen Recorder - Works with ALSA

I will be doing a video and blog about this topic soon

I wont comment more about this as

I recommend to avoid -


@charliebrownau . . . I recommend that you activate your "off" button when you feel inclined to blather on about your marginally related political agenda. You have been warned . . . Please waste those bytes elsewhere not on Devuan's dollar/euro whatever.



#10 Re: Installation » Any tutorial to bind Devuan to Mullvad? » 2022-08-04 11:44:05


Does OPENVPN offer a GUI Client via deb file ?

I dont trust wireguard

I recommend Mullvad VPN or IPVN or self host VPN
(problem with self hosting is you end up with 1 ip)

I also recommend home connections use DNS Watch ( Uncensored DNS)

and for privacy focused Domain Registering - Njalla -

#12 Re: Off-topic » OT nonsense » 2022-07-25 22:47:50

((( Mainstream ))) is full of lines, bullshit , incorrect , false axiums

Australia was always white
I don't believe that the Abos were in Australia for 60k years
Australia , like UK and USA has a lot of old world buildings showing that whites existed pre mudflood reset in the old world times


If you actually look at the truth behind " Colonization " and the "slave" trade
it wasnt 'right wing/pro white' group

It was World Jewish Power, Zionists, Kike, Freemasons behind that slave trade

Of course Blacks, Arabs and Chinese are never held to the same race guilt when they owned slaves in the past
yet it was right wing whitey that fought to free everyone on this realm
just for International Corporation Governance to become the new Modern slavery system via statism, taxation, usury, debt


Gender is another made up term
- Only two sex's exist, male and female
- Everything else is bad/faulty DNA or Mentally ill


Space, Gravity, Spinning Ball, Evolution , Dinosaurs and out of Africa are all recent made up lies by the ((( Mainstream)))
to hide our true history, our true reality and the extent of greatness that the realm wide White Empire used to be
before the Chosen parasite invaded the Earth Realm with its evilness, hate, green, subversion and satanic evil methods


I don't applogise for being white
or actions done by anyone else in the past that was of my race/species

In Fact

Its GREAT to be White
No White Shame
No White Guilt
No White Blame


Take a real look at who has pushed/done

* UN + WEF + Great Reset + Plandemic
* Abortion
* Feminism
* Diversity
* Race Mixing
* Porn Industry
* Hollywood
* Wars (ww1/ww2/vietnam/iraq)
* Sunk the titanic
* Creation of the central banks + Federal Reserve
* Bigphama + Jabs
* Abortion
* Forced Intergration
* Multi racialism
* the black slave trade

Its not right wing 'whitey'
Its the Jews


All this bullshit that whites should feel guilty (again only ever APLIED TO WHITEY)
is based on lies to cover up the true guilty ones

I don't believe that we are all EQUAL or all 'human'
It seems infact the reality is different human SPICES exist
and we didnt all come from africa or Adam/Eve


It seems Head on a stick is an International leftist and self hating white
which like most have been brainwashed by the ((( MAINSTREAM ))) 'education' and 'news' and 'facts' ((( system )))

((( WIKI )) was created by a chosen parasite
and its become an Anti White , International leftist strong hold of corrupt political bullshit


No pro white or pro nation person is in charge
*  170 nations all signed up too
*  Agenda 21 2030
*  World Depopulation
*  World Corporation governance
*  Artificial leg over to help china

Check out
Belt Road
Black Road
Agenda 21
Liberal World Order

By every measure society and nations are better off when its
1 race
1 society
1 value system

This multi cultural bullshit is just another weapon against goyim and whitey to allow the chosen parasite to subvert, ruin and corrupt our society


I don't support
* Left
* Right
* Neo cuckservitism
* Judeo Islam
* Judeo Christianity
* neo liberalism
* voting + mah demoracy
* statism
* Federation or commonwealth (centralised state power)
* Taxation + welfare state
* pussy pass
* forced integration (only whites to be forced to put up with everyone else against their own well-being and safety)


No government system is willing to hold everyone to the SAME EXACT Standard
because its all a weapon against us


The Plandemic and Bigphama Jab demands is just the latest con from the Chosen Parasite and Mainstream and state system
to demonize, demoralize and degrade us
along with an ((( LEGAL ))) method to ruin anyone's body with toxic poison into our bodies

its all poison and bad for human bodies


Check out Keto + Carnavore + Init Fasting

it turns out ANOTHER ((( MAINSTREAM ))) Like that we don't need 3 meals a day
Carbs , Wheat, Sugar , Plants is not good or healthy

Breakfast - Milk , Carbs, Processed Junk, Sugar, Wheat is ruining our bodies
(look who created the breakfast cereal industry in the last 250 years )

They poison
* The air
* The water
* Our food
* Our soil
* our minds
* our meat
* our soul


We don't need you

Its time for whitey to walk away

Self Separate
Self Segregate
Self Succeed
Self Governance

We don't need the ill-moral, evil, degraded , brainwashed , useless, mentally ill
You are parasites feeding off the host

Well the host can survive without you




*  Why should anyone on the 'right'
- live in the same area
- work with
- or be forced to associate with

*  Non Whites
*  International Statists
*  Commies/Marxists/feminists/etc

Its clear we dont agree on any axiums , concepts or society values anymore

Time to go our own way

You in the Big Smart Cities

Pro whitey in rural/outback/regional areas without
central banking
Anti white hate



#13 Re: Off-topic » OT nonsense » 2022-07-25 07:09:28


I reject your International Authoritarianism Statist approach to using weaponized words against White people

*  Racist
*  Sexist
*  Nazi
*  Bigot
*  Conspiracy Theory


All are artificial new words created in the last 25-55-255 years to the ((( MAINSTREAM ))) too

*  1 - Shut down honest open debate
*  2 - Demonize, demoralize and devalue White people, White Society, White Values, White Nations
*  3- Anyone that supports an ethnic homeland without
   - Central Banking Cartel, Usury , Internationalism (Anti nation) , UN Agenda 21 , Modern Neo Liberal Mah Democracy subversion
*   Freedom of Speech
*   Truth
*    History Revisionism (Exposing the lies and false history we were 'told to repeat and trust')

Japanese , Koreans , Whites and everyone on the Earth realm
is going thou the same attack by the Invading International Chosen Parasites
over the last 5-25-255-500 years since the "Modern World"

The International Chosen parasites hate anyone not part of their racial group
  and wish us the worse, genocide and depopulation on an entire realm wide scale


Most if not 99% of all Ethnic Nationalists and Race Nationalists support every single race having our own
*  Nation
*  Society
*  Culture
*  Value
*  System
*  Traditions
*  Knowledge
*  Customs

Without outside interference by any other group


I support

* White Power for Whites in White Nations
* Chinese Power for Chinese in China
* Japanese Power for Japan for Japanese
* Korean Power for Koreans in Japan
* Indian Power for Indians in India

No one has an Universal right to whitey or anyone else's homeland


or even ASK
if Whites wanted to become a hated majority , near coming to be a excluded minitory in our OWN HOMELAND which WE and our forefathers built

Whites ARE on track to be an official monitory in all white nations (West/EU) by 2030-2055
this is something the GOVERNMENT, the SYSTEM and the ((( MAINSTREAM ))) admits to happening


I reject
*   Anti Whites , Anti Whiteism
*  White Guilt , White Blame, White Shame
*  Statism , Taxation, Authoritarianism , state force
*  Central Banking Cartel +  Fiat Currency +  Usury + Debt based Economy
*  UN agenda 21 + Liberal World Order + International Corporation Governance + 2030 + Great Reset + Plandemic


If any self hating International Commie , Marxist, Socialist, Dugeonist,etc hates freedom, whites, truth
its pretty simple


Goto China
Goto Israel
Goto Africa

We don't want, need or value you in white nations


I put

Whites First
Australia First
Localism First
Small Business and Small Farmers First
Free Speech
Self Defense
Self Sufficiency
Self Reliance

Above anything that the International Parasite and Authoritarian plague offers to sheeple citizens

People like you

never the solution

Its parasites , subverts and leeches that have ruined everything in our society's

#15 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Audio interferences in vokoscreen » 2022-07-24 11:04:29


1 - You didnt list the make and model of webcam + Mic
2 - You didnt list software used in the recording process

3 - Are you using OBS or simple screen recorder
Audacity (sound) with GNVIew (webcam)


99% of 'webcams' are software based
thus it will use the CPU grunt for the processing


Hardware XLR audio interfaces with XLR mics
will be processed QUICKER
then software video streams from the webcam
thus you will need to artifcally make a delay in the audio for the video to be synced

I gave up on webcams and now use an

*  USB HDMI capture card - 20-30 bucks from Aliexpress

*  Presonus Audiobox USB audio interface

*  Action cam with Micro HDMI out, then with an Micro HDMI to HDMI adapter ,
connected to the Capture card
which then connects to PC via USB2



vokoscreenNG is sh1th0use software

1 - uses ((( github)))

2 - seens to use QT5 and openSSL , pulseaudio and libwayland

3 - no appimage or .deb file

Thus it sucks

Solution - Gitgud

Use OBS or Simple Screen Recorder

Im yet to find a really good solution to AMD video card settings and fans

Almost all the 'software' is farking sh1thouse

It seems always
made with electron, dotnet, j3wscript, or ((( python)))
of course 'requiring' dbus, soyd, pulseaudio,etc

Im looking into some pyshical addition and external hardware monitoring devices
instead of 'software' on my ryzen PC with Asrock RX 580


Also if anyone knows of some decent programmers I can hire to make decent software
let me know - charliebrownau @ proton mail

Id prefer to hire White or Japanese Men as the programmers

not j3ws , blacks , Indians or Chinese

I recommend using appimage if the repo stopped working
(you might need to hard delete it in the config file)


Error in your config file
it points to HOME not HTTP

Gday Welcome new person from gentoo

BTW I also use Devuan

I came from Artix + Endeavour OS

#19 Re: News & Announcements » Linux Pro Magazine revisits Devuan » 2022-06-24 00:09:23

Good to see ACTUAL positive press/reviews

Yet I would caution ANYONE to rely or trust

*   Government
*   Corporations
*   Mainstream
*  " News " / "media"
*  Central banks

#20 Re: Installation » Ansible role to migrate Debian to Devuan » 2022-06-17 22:43:57

Sounds Awesome

Thanks for your efforts

Does VPS/cohost box's need specialised drivers to work with Devuan
or would this work with most VPS providers ?

Might be a good idea to host based scripts not on ((( GITHUB )))
but something more self hosted/based/free speech supported

#21 Re: ARM Builds » Inquiriing, about router usage, » 2022-06-17 06:33:53


For an Router you could get

OpenWRT device
Linksys WRT54g

DIY Pfsense Router
DIY BSD router

I dont recommend ANYONE using a laptop or tabet
to share and route and do firewall stuff for a connection

I would love to see BSD and Devuan included in more networking, server stuff and router distros

ARM is still royality fee based and closed source

if you wanted a pro freedom device, check out RISC V

#22 Re: Devuan Derivatives » We are making progress » 2022-06-17 06:30:52

Great to see more distros willing to WALK AWAY from

* International Corporations
* Central Banking Cartels
* VC funding
* Anti Nation
* Anti Merit
* Anti Straight Males
* Soyd/Dbus/policykit
* Python + Dotnet + Javascript
* Censorship
* Pandering to International Authoritarianism/weak/emotional

Over to instead
* based distros,
* based communities
* people willing to put  experience, hard work, talent, drive and pride ins ones worth/effort/hard work

Instead of pandering to the
weak, always offended and those which pull down and subvert an community/group instead of aiding success
which are never happy until everyone is purged and they have completely taken over your thing/project/group/etc

I can see Linux spliter into 2 groups

Closed Source

Indie/Small/crowd/ground funded
No soyd,dbus, wayland,pulseaudio
Free Speech
Based Communties
hard work
Small business

#24 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » How reduce starting Xorg time? » 2022-06-14 03:50:34

Im amazed any system that old still works

I would replace
and replace thermal paste

Also check all FANS to be working

Replace Celey or i3 with an Xeon if you can source it from Aliexpress for that old socket type

Might be worth UPGRADING to an X58 or X79
instead of a system that old - Socket 478/771/775
