On the positive side though, so far the new disk works flawlessly :)
Turns out Dirt Rally 2 contains a 9GB data file, so there goes the idea of just using a single large FAT32 partition. 🙄 (Leaving its 109GB total on the main drive is not really an option)
The spares have arrived and two SSDs are now installed 😎 Moving on to reassembly, testing and partitioning / making space on the main SSD.
The good news: I found my box of computer screws. The bad news: There's no ridiculously tiny NVMe screw in it. 🙄
Time to order spares. 🙁
Turns out the screw to fix the NVMe drive in place is missing. If only I knew where I put those screws two years ago 🙈
Patient is ready for surgery 🔧
Sooo... Time to add one of these to my computer 😎
By the way, I haven't introduced myself yet 😱
Hello Fediverse! 👋 My name is Lucas and I'm a student of computer science at HTW Dresden.
My main interests are software engineering, music and photography, about which I may toot here from time to time.
I'm also a volunteer contributor at @codeberg where I'm mainly working on the new documentation site at the moment.
After experimenting with JACK and zynaddsubfx yesterday, I was curious about music production on #linux using commercial DAWs. So today I tried to install #bitwig and I'm very delighted to say that it worked flawlessly. I didn't even have to configure JACK or set up my MIDI keyboard. It "just works" and I'm very happy with this!
And that concludes the #weekendcodingchallenge.
The result of effectively about 10 hours of work is a very basic, unpolished game with pretty terrible code quality and likely full of bugs. But that doesn't really matter - what matters is that is was a fun and challenging way to spend the weekend, way out of my neatly unit-tested clean-code comfort zone :)
After modifying the audio initialization to use larger buffers it now more or less works on the Pi, although I was only able to test it under the experimental GL driver. It's even barely playable. 😜
It took some time, but updates and toolchain are now installed, the game is compiled and i3wm is running. Next up is trying to run the game now - fingers crossed! 🤞
Computer Science student and creative thinker.
I enjoy doing photography, making music and contributing to Free and Open Source Software.
Mainly working with Rust and Vue.js
