I did it!

I had to edit the #u-boot thing, write my own module for #dracut, google all of the interwebz and bang my head against the table for four hours straight, but finally it's working :)

Unfortunately dracut diesn't show any output before I enter the password as of yet... But that is a minor issue, really.

Successfully compiled and booted my own kernel for the @mntmn reform 2 :)

Next step: Boot using an initramfs. I'm afraid that might be a lot harder though :D

this week was very intense in terms of putting together the new version of the system image for the SD card that ships with MNT Reform. once again i had to work on many parts of the stack to ensure an adequate user experience. i think it was worth it.

hey we're finally launching a community forum around our products:

signup is currently moderated, because i don't yet have a feeling for how much spam to expect. if you have experience with this aspect of running a discourse, please get in touch!

windowmaker on top of cage (single app wayland compositor) on MNT Reform. oddly pleasant

what’s the nicest non-php forum software? suitable for community support

i was able to solve the GNOME Xwayland graphics glitches on MNT Reform today.

the solution is: gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['kms-modifiers']"

at some point i will just have a mental breakdown over this stuff. Xwayland surfaces are not correctly sampled on GNOME/Mutter. works fine on sway. also works fine on my old system on GNOME. but no idea why. (this is glxgears)

ah, is gnome-shell (gnome-session?) using libmutter?

how exactly are gnome-session, gnome-shell and mutter integrated? when i launch a wayland-based gnome session, i don't see any "mutter" process.

we have started assembling production MNT Reforms

to answer my own question, this worked: quilt push --fuzz 10 --refresh

i have a patch for some sources in a debian package. the patch needs some fuzz (3) to apply. quilt doesn't want to accept patches with fuzz. what's the best course of action?

RISC OS coming to iMX8M (and thus MNT Reform) thanks to work by Michael Grunditz.

RISC OS was originally developed by Acorn Computers in Cambridge (UK). ARM was originally the “Acorn RISC Machine”.

how to use Xorg window managers without Xorg

(well, Xorg is still in there, it is just not running directly on the metal)

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.
