Regarding my previous post some witty people may have figured that this was a joke: The last post before that one was the long delayed February one and I wrote that I simply couldn't post the next one (as I cannot stand the new WP editor). That could make said previous post the April one. … Continue reading Neunix: Eerie transitioning to Geminispace
Dear readers, the time has come for some fundamental re-organization of my EerieLinux blog. The impact of this year's pandemic as well as family matters (a new family member that demands quite a bit of care!) have forced me to post-pone many of my posts that I usually published at least monthly. Right when I … Continue reading Retreat… and reboot! Is there life outside of the Web?
Another year of blogging comes to an end. It has been quite full of *BSD stuff so that I'd even say: Regarding this blog it has been a BSD year. This was not actually planned but isn't a real surprise, either. I've not given up on Linux (which I use on a daily basis as … Continue reading Top things that I missed in 2015
Happy Easter, everyone! Guess it's about time I admit that my previous post was just an april fools, right? It's been 20 days already after all! Well, there are reasons why I couldn't do it. Two actually, if you disregard obstacles due to real life! Keyboard issues The first one is that I'm currently trying … Continue reading Eerie Linux and Musl libc
Those of you who follow the development of Linux for embedded devices (or simply older hardware) will probably have noticed, that eglibc is effectively dead. According to their website "EGLIBC is no longer developed and such goals are now being addressed directly in GLIBC."! E5 and eglibc Arch:E5 was built to be a bit lighter … Continue reading Arch:E5 ditches eglibc and goes for musl libc!
Finally I found some time to update and expand E5 a bit. The biggest news is surely the release of the e5-x11, e5-gtk and e5-fltk repositories. On the top of that packages have been updated and more than 80 new ones added (mostly to extra). This update also fixes a few issues that E5 had … Continue reading Arch:E5 update and more repos (x11, gtk, fltk)
Today more e5 repositories have been made available to the public. Most notably: e5-default, e5-devel and e5-extra. Also the linux-libre-lts kernel in e5-skel has been updated from minor version 27 to 29. New to E5? You may want to read this and this post first! An experimental Arch system While a minimal working E5 system … Continue reading More e5 repositories available (default, devel, extra)
The first public Arch:e5 repository is available now! If you have no idea what E5 is, you may want to take a look at the post Announcing Arch:E5! first. About one month passed and I just made the skel (or "skeleton") repository available. It can be used to pacstrap a fairly minimal Arch:e5 installation. I'll … Continue reading First public Arch:e5 repository published
Happy new year 2014 everybody! For me the second blogging year has passed and the third one stands at the door. A good opportunity to look back at what 2013 brought! Last year went by quickly from my perspective. This was due to huge and time-consuming changes in my life. Still I managed to publish … Continue reading New year – looking back at 2013
Merry Christmas, everybody! I've been very busy the last couple of weeks. Time to reveal what I've been silently cooking up during that period of time: Welcome to "Arch Linux Epoch 5" or - in short - Arch:E5. What is it? It's basically a handful of repositories which allow pacstrapping a clean Arch:E5 system or … Continue reading Announcing Arch:E5!
