kinda glad i didn't go with gentoo; compiling just arctic fox took 11 minutes, and i have a reasonably powered machine lol. granted, that's a web browser, and i remember from the good old days of running freebsd on my grandparents' computer as a teen that compiling ports = time for a tea break, i've just grown too comfortable with speed.
i can fix this
using mate, this is a very pleasant experience
debian just booted like no problem. no black screen with amdgpu. i know they were trying to fix that with 11 (i tested 11.0, no beans) but it looks like they've actually done it now (11.3). beautiful.
i do plan on investing in a few more ssds so that i can install whatever the fuck i want and slowly work on getting them all up to speed at my own pace, tuned just how i like them, while always having something to fall back on in case i need the amenities of another OS. but that's a lot of money i don't have atm.
ngl the lack of documentation is kinda killing dragonfly for me. i just need a graphics card that doesn't rely on amdgpu. radeon gpus are a dime a dozen and work great. but i like having dp 1.4 (as i run 3440x1440@144hz). i like to put myself in predicaments huh. well, i did just get an email about an ms teams interview, so i either gotta set up my windows drive or just switch to debi-- [breaks down sobbing as the cycle continues and i fail to commit to anything]
i gave up on linux because it's bad, now i'm on dragonfly with xfce and it's good. only problem is the desktop is very slow; i think i'll need to tweak/handcraft some xorg.conf stuff to play nice with my gpu, which was never my speciality. i tried adding the modesetting stuff as per https://lists.dragonflybsd.org/pipermail/users/2022-January/404934.html but no beans. or rather, xorg thinks there's no screen, which i think means i actually have to make the rest of the xorg.conf stuff. but i presume it's fixable. also ran into two bugs with netsurf, so i should probably mention something about those. my main goal is to get a pale moon-esque browser onto here eventually. i don't like having to use firefox.
Imagine if YouTube was shut down.
It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.
"That would never happen!" some believe.
But it already has.
Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.
Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.
