paru-git was working with it, but the regular version got updated really fast after pacman 6’s release, I was in the matrix chat with the AUR package maintainer at the time

same, I’ll just wait a while longer to update so paru and other AUR helpers work with it

this, people had to create an entire community just to report scams some users tried a couple of weeks back, a report feature is definitely needed

Thanks to a new, low overhead extension in Mesa, OpenGL and Vulkan applications can now talk to each other, bringing more flexibility to application developers while easing the transition path between the industry-standard Khronos® APIs…

kind of same, at least with some of his views, still agree with his movement tho

I’ve always been left-leaning when it came to the types of policies I found to be acceptable, but always tried to be the enlightened cetrist, but ater Bolsonaro’s election I started to become more annoyed at this idea and started to embrace the leftist in me. The pandemic just blew it up to 11 and radicalized me to my core.

Same, I never got the appeal of IRC myself, but maybe thats 'cause I’m a millennial who grew used to Skype

It’s already on the staging repos for a couple of days, but considering how important it is to be completely stable it should be taking a week or two before it comes to core.

Open Source Calculator - Helping to convince employers to switch to FOSS programs

This website lets companies calculate whether it is worth it to switch to Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) solutions. …

Yeah, I should probably change the title of the post, I just used the title of the article for it.

Chrome, at least in its experimental Canary version on Android (and only for users in the U.S.) […] will soon see a “Follow” feature for sites that support RSS and the browser’s New Tab page will get what is essentially a (very) basic RSS reader — I guess you could almost call it a “Google Reader…

Let me give you an example:

Imagine you’re going to update a lot of packages in your system. With TotalDownload, instead of having it show the dowloaded percentage of each package to the right of the progress bar, it will show the percentage of the entire update, so you have a better idea of how long it will take for you to download the entire update.

also having TotalDownload as the default is great

Yeah, it just works now. The only thing I wish they would do is give an option to hide the rooms you have in a Space on the “All rooms” area.

Considering it went from WhatsApp/Signal/Telegram competitor to that AND a potential Discord competitor in such a short time, we can at least hope its development goes even further.

I mean, for one to be able to hotjoin voice channels it would be pretty much a necessity to group servers first. Imagine have a mix of your chat rooms and voice rooms in the same space on the “rooms” tab, specially if you group them by activity.

Element is now getting closer and closer to be a 100% viable Discord alternative. Now, as a beta feature you can group your rooms and conversations in a public, private or personal, way, which means you can have something similar to Discord channels with various rooms for certain topics. …

yay is pretty good, but my choice in the end is paru, strictly because it prompts you to check the PKGBUILD out of the box, it’s a habit that I needed to build and it helped me with that

and I also use light themes to help my eyes

Oh, that’s interesting, I use darker themes for the same reason, specially at night light theme feel like burning my eyes, which is the reason I had to change my wallpaper, even though I love it so much.

For me it’s the opposite, I really enjoy the hard definition between the top bar and the rest of the system, specially with the curved edges (with these being probably one of the main reasons I don’t use other shell themes). It doesn’t look that good on screenshots with two monitors or more, but in real life it looks stunning.

I absolutely love them, look really good!

This is a minor bugfix release to address some issues solved shortly after the last release. …

Vulkan 1.2.177 Released To Help Graphics Translation Layers

Besides the usual internal and public bug fixes, the main addition to Vulkan 1.2.177 is the VK_EXT_provoking_vertex extension. VK_EXT_provoking_vertex is for changing the provoking vertex convention from the default of the first vertex to instead the last vertex. This change is to match the OpenGL…

Highlights include: …

So they were being either extremely stupid or extremely rotten by keeping giving the kernel devs more work debugging bad code?

Credits and references

Most of this guide formatting I took from this, but it wasn’t a properly guide for the newbie, so I tried improving it: https://nerdstuff.org/posts/2020/2020-004_arch_linux_luks_btrfs_systemd-boot/

What it lacks I took from this tutorial (give his channel some love if you can): https://odysee.com/@EF-TechMadeSimple:3/arch-linux-install-january-2021-iso-2:a

And the rest I pretty much found by myself and/or the Arch Wiki.

Had to post this part here since the guide reached the character limit for posts here, even had to rush a bit in the end, but any doubts or issues I can try to help.
