Just name the movies you think everyone should have seen at least once in their lifetime. Go!

What's going on in Belarus?

Hello, sorry to bother again but I have a question. Do you think adding a M.2 card with six SATA3 connectors to a Lenovo ThinkCentre M910q would work? I found a M910q for 50 bucks, quite cheap I'd say and the expansion card is around 30 bucks.

Thank you very much! I read about those. Maybe it's time to try out GNOME again, I don't want to use a too early version of an OS. Altough I fell in love with KDE, especially KRunner!

Yes I already use the Fedora KDE Spin right now, it's awesome!

I didn't know that it uses X11 because Fedora uses Wayland already for a few major releases.

I think I found a solution for your problem recently. Are you familiar with distrobox? AFAIK you can use it on top of your OS, in this case Tumbleweed, and install another OS in a container, like Arch, and then export the programs installed from AUR or whatever to your host OS.

But nonetheless thank you, I think I should just try it out in a virtual machine or something.

Thank you.

In the MicroOS portal it is described like this:

Rolling Release: Every new openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshot also automatically produces a new openSUSE MicroOS release.

So it should get the latest software pretty fast too, right?

Can you elaborate? I think I didn't understand your point.

I recently came across openSUSE again and decided to give it a try this time. I am daily driving Fedora 40 right now and before coming across openSUSE I wanted to switch to Fedora Kinoite or uBlue Aurora (i.e., immutable / atomic). That's why MicroOS piqued my interest but I had a hard time find information if MicroOS is suitable for daily driving as a atomic desktop or mainly used for a container host on a server.

If someone has personal experience with openSUSE or could link me to a nice write up comparing the two I would be very thankful!


Edit:

I thought MicroOS is like Fedora Silverblue and an atomic desktop?

I recently stumbled upon OpenSuse again and want to try it out but can't decide if I should use Tumbleweed or MicroOS. Did you ever try MicroOS?

There's also Netbird as an open source alternative to Tailscale. @[email protected]

 

How is it possible, that Signal still only provides a .deb package and no .rpm, or even better AppImage or Flatpak? There is an unofficial Flatpak but is it secure?

I dived into the selfhosting rabbit hole once again and again I am stuck at the hardware part. I'd like to start small-ish to make it realisable. I thought about a NAS (Openmediavault probably). First I wanted to do it on a Raspberry Pi with an external hard-drive but then I read USB connected drives are unreliable and so on. Mini PCs are too small to house internal drives so should I go with a (refurbished) business PC from ebay and add some drives to it?But they usually come with Windows 10, which I wouldn't need but makes them more expensive. I also have at least one old PC case laying around but no mainboard or CPU for it, if that info might be important. Thank you in advance for helping a noob out!

Edit: What I want to achieve: I would like a NAS and (separated) a server with some small services (pi-hole or adguard, syncthing, jellyfin (getting the data from the NAS), and so on). I thought about running the small services with docker on a RPi 4 and the NAS on a refurbished business PC with SATA drives in the case (I checked ebay and there are mainboards with 4 SATA III connectors and PCI so I could even add more SATA connectors). In a second moment a backup server (maybe with borg) would be a good idea but I could also do manual backups with an external USB HDD for the time being.

 

Why not buy one decent pen "shell" and then just buy the plastic tube with the tip and the ink afterwards?

I know many companies use pens for marketing but still, they could apply this too and also stand up for the environment while still do marketing.

 

Or do I need to save all the interesting posts I want to be able to find again? Because Reddit has this feature iirc.
