Yes! I've won. Now I have sound in my #crux. The long story short: I recompiled the kernel, installed vlc and 3 times rebuilt firefox just to realize that I had sound all the time just ff was built without pulseaudio support
Now I'm going to rebuild the kernel to remove the modules I don't need and get rid of initrd
I've spent several days to figure out why I can't boot #crux on my old Roverbook. Even tried to install Gentoo but somehow they fucked up all the portages. Then I installed serveral *bsd systems: BIOS with FreeBSD (I used it for several years on this laptop though) and OpenBSD memstick plugged don't run, NetBSD works but is kinda weird. And you know what? RTFM. It appears that the kernel with default settings just don't see an ssd. Made localmodconfig + initrd and it did the trick
#vk (Russian Facebook) continue to go down. I've been using it since it was a small local social network, nice and comfy. Everything changed when its founder left the company. Today it's owned by Mail.ru - the bigest piece of shit company in Russia. They increased amount of ads, implemented tons of useless features from fb and insta and so on. Today they've shown me ad with sex doll from aliexpress. It was the last drop of my patience
Have you ever turned your tv on after #midnight and saw one of those pathetic shows for adults? You know, about sex and women things. Usually I don't watch tv but that time I was sad and bored so I turned on a random channel. It was a classic music channel. And know what? In the adult time they broadcast #jazz concerts. I think I'm getting old because I liked it.
#crux makes pretty good impression. I like that simplicity, it feels like freebsd in many ways. But sysup lasts forever. As far as I understand the guys are preparing the next release so it's not a big problem. There is only one thing that should be better: prt-get and pkgmk don't check dev dependencies. I've spent all day to figure out why I cannot compile libjpeg-turbo (old llvm and cmake)
The third day I'm trying to build x11. I've already defeated mesa but now errors become even more weird. #linuxfromscratch
I think I've made it. Now #mesa is being compiled properly. All I had to do is to take a look at blfs docs about compiling #llvm and set a flag to build libLLVM.so. That's it. Than I've had another short adventure trying to disable wayland support (-Dplatforms=x11,drm) in an x11 build script. If everything goes well I'll have a basic desktop environment soon. #linuxfromscratch
Friendly reminder: RTFM before you try to compile anything. #linuxfromscratch
Well, at least now it's the same error as when I try to build mesa separately
I continue playing with #linuxfromscratch. Today I've configured bash, found out how to install vboxguestadditions and now preparing to build x11
Here we go! Now I'm officially a #linuxfromscratch user. ID: 28429.
Next I'm going to make some customization, install zsh, x11 and desktop env, probably #icewm, etc. But first I have to briefly take a look at BLFS. An then maybe I'll pack my vm and upload it to a cloud so everyone watching me invading the linuxfromscratch tag could understand what an asshole I really am.
