You know you poor when it's canned chilli and tortillas for dinner 😅

If you ever get a stuttering issue with feh and picom conflicting, use the --glx-no-stencil option

picom --backend glx --vsync --glx-no-stencil --sw-opti -f -b

Anybody on here have
there own FOSS programs/apps for me to port to OpenBSD? Looking for cool projects or scripts!

Learned something new. Dealing with a bug in Chromium where all right click menus and program menus fail to load. If you type chrome://restart in the url bar it does a restart, and brings all the same tabs back and menus work again, until they break 😅

@rootbsd why not just SSH into the machine from the linux machine then just capture the output with OBS?
That's what i did with this livestream

Nuts to the poll, I'm installing Gentoo on livestream with @10leej within the coming weeks. I'll keep you guys posted!

@rootbsd too many arch fan boys here, install Gentoo and watch the compiler porn.

I know this came from something completely unrelated but the right one seems quite similar to how antis operate

Yesteday I finally received my Raspberry Pi 4 microcomputer. I expected something small, but this is much smaller than what I imagined it. Let's hope that my horrible fine motor motion won't be an issue setting my first project, a smart TV up.

On Pi 4 basically you have to make a compromise between 32-bit distro and old packages but with proper GPU driver on one side and 64-bit distros with missing packages and incomplete GPU driver on the other side. And don't think about multiarch on Ubuntu 64-bit and the Beta Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit... It creates a lot of conflicts in both but if you can tolerate them then good for you. Also the widevine drm only works on 32-bit Rpi OS so no Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, etc on 64-bit distros.

@derek in his video about Raspberry Pi 4 said that it cannot play SuperTux Kart and 0ad. Well the situation is like this on Manjaro Arm64 both games are missing. On Ubuntu Arm64 SuperTux Kart does not work properly and 0ad is missing but you can install 0ad from a PPA and it works. Both games work the best only on the 32-bit Raspberry Pi OS the officially supported distro. Yeah it's a big mess but both games work for sure but only on the officially supported 32-bit distro.

Pi4 can play 720p and 1080p 30fps with only CPU with few or no frames dropped but it cannot play 1080p with 60 fps without GPU acceleration and it pretty much struggles playing that and proper GPU drivers are only available on 32-bit distros. So the best choice is Raspberry Pi OS 32-bit. You more or less have to make a compromise between either to use 32-bit distros and 64-bit distros

The GPU drivers themselves on Raspberry Pi are nothing but a shared memory and they transfer the instructions to the Broadcom binary blob in the firmware. Broadcom does not open source the GPU firmware.
