I've been so busy with my dissertation that I haven't read anything since mid-April, and that's when I read They Both Die at the End and then I DNF'd a LitRPG and Exhalation by Ted Chiang.

I think I'll read Exhalation eventually but LitRPGs might not be for me. "Oh Great! I was Reincarnated as a Farmer" was just super boring. Maybe someone out there knows a better LitRPG to read?

I wonder if there's a way to get the #aur working on #fedora. It's possible to install #pacman & #paru using #dnf and #cargo respectively, and after doing

pacman-key --init
pacman-key --populate archlinux

it's possible to get it to start installing.

The problem you run into is dependencies. Pacman can't use dnf pkgs as deps & tries to doubly install things, conflicting with the files of dnf pkgs.

I wonder if there's a way around that. Would be cool to play around with.

Actualitzado mi estación de trabajo #linux @fedora #linux #37 a #38 por consola con #dnf y el resultado es espectacular!

I’m normally a very “forgiving” reader of sci-fi. Handwave away whatever you want, I don’t care, I’m there for the ride.

But the story I’m reading has a giant mech, like Gundam or Battletech, explicitly used to fight the alien invaders, and the AI scientist just explained that it is powered by cold fusion (cool) and… solar panels on every outside surface.

Because solar panels are notoriously as efficient as FUSION(!) and also tough enough to withstand rockets and bullets.

I figured out what was wrong with the #mongodb service on my #redhat.

One day, an automatic upgrade of the package broke the service, and it wouldn't start anymore.

Turns out, they changed the service from type forking to simple, and they deleted the fork and pidfile settings from mongod.conf.

But because I had modified the file (of course), these changes were not applied. So mongod was still forking and trying to use PIDFile when systemd thought it was a simple daemon and kept killing its orphan when it forked and died (after manually creating the pid folder that systemd wasnt creating anymore)

This is an example of why end-user customizations should be applied with separate files that aren't part of the package. There should be an /etc/mongo.d/ directory where you put your own mongod.conf to override the package maintainer's one.

Otherwise, you'll have to manually merge the distribution's updates. And I don't even know if #dnf prompts the user for that, I don't remember seeing that, and this happened with an automatic update. I know #debian will prompt though

while it is somewhat less relevant now that I use Fedora Silverblue instead of Workstation, one thing that always drew me to Fedora is DNF

not for any underlying technical reason per se, but because the output is so much nicer than what you get with APT

#Fedora #Silverblue #distrobox #DNF #APT

Two terminal windows side-by-side. On the left is the output of installing a set of packages with the DNF package manager. It is a 5-column layout, with packages and relevant information listed line-by-line. Package names are also colored a light green.

On the right-side terminal is the output of installing the same packages, but with the APT package manager. Packages are listed in alphabetical order with no visual formatting applied.

A @opensuse pots utilitzar #dnf com gestor de paquets per defecte en substitució de zypper. Simplement:

zypper install dnf libdnf-repo-config-zypp

Així et pots beneficiar de les opcions de #history que te #dnf.

Crec que #openSUSE és una de les distribucions més infravalorades que hi ha.

I started reading Catch-22 some weeks ago. I get that there is a lot of unpleasant things going on in the world, but I don't find a place for witty cynicism in my life. I'll keep my energy for the good fights.

In 2023, I'll dump books I don't want to read. Thank you Catch-22 for being the first one!

I have a bipolar reaction to the poetry of Dylan Thomas - it is either brilliant or incomprehensible

I'm familiar with the introduction to #UnderMilkWood (=brilliant) and so was looking forward to reading the whole thing.

It is a play. Supposedly

But I now have to add a third category for DT - meh.
As a "play", it fails utterly on plot, message, and metaphor. Very disappointing. #DNF

=> Shelve; try again later. Maybe.

What did I miss?

I think I'm going to #dnf this next book, as well. It's not terrible, but it's just weirdly boring and awkward.

There's a massive power imbalance between the two leads that's mostly unaddressed.

One is adding a Chanukah event at his work (a resort) without knowing what sorts of foods are correct and without researching first.

AND he's doing this with less than a week to plan and advertise the new event. Even if everyone else was on-board, that's not enough time. Ugh.

Not entirely loving it. It bounces around storylines and timelines and has yet to converge but also doesn't seem likely that they will converge.

All the memery aside it's actually pretty nice that switching from #zypper to #dnf is so easy on #opensuse :)

Though the code above is not enough, you'll need the package 'rpm-repos-openSUSE-Tumbleweed' too.

Agree. The key phrase is "too many of them". The big Cable TV shows do this too. You start enjoying something ('How To Get Away With Murder', for example), and end up feeling jerked around by the 'cleverness' of the writing. I now know when I should stop watching - and in a book, stop reading. #DNF

#Apt, as expected, is amazing. So many developers publish their software through it, so I was able to install many more programs than with #dnf.

I do miss how fast #Fedora feels. #PopOS is just a bit slower, not to the point of it being annoying. It's just in comparison that I notice the difference.

#Hibernation is amazing for my battery life. It's a bit annoying to have to wait for my RAM to be loaded up between sessions, but for now it's worth it. I prefer actually being mobile.

@chandanhegde @archlinux @fedora @gnome IMO you'll get a good #gnome experience in both #archlinux & #fedora -- in both cases, it'll be straight vanilla GNOME, just like its Devs created.

Tbh, IMO [again], in a case like your question, you might wish to choose based on your preference for #pacman vs #dnf, #aur vs #copr , #thearchway vs #anaconda etc.

Enjoy, best wishes!

My weekend projects have a tendency for feature creep. I wanted to experiment with #IPv6 and set up a #HurricaneElectric tunnel with a /48 net to my home lab. Now I’m rebuilding my VLANs and #KVM bridges, and reading up on #Kea as a replacement for my old #ISC #DHCP Server that’s apparently going EOL pretty much now. While I’m at it I might switch to #Fedora for some of my servers just to get some practice with #DNF and #SELinux based management for work.

#DNF The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. All the exposition was taking its toll. And I felt it just wasn't very well written.

I like my stories to move me forward but this just didn't. You could cut chunks out of it and you'd still understand it.

And the similes were hilarious.

Windows Update: Something is broken. Is it Tuesday?

Apt: Rebuilding initramfs automatically on Ubuntu. Troubling on production systems after installing trivial utilities.

Dnf: 2.2gb of updates after installing a 1.2gb version upgrade on Fedora. Flatpak unaware.

KDE Discover: Flatpak aware. Will sometimes pickup bad links for regular updates Groundhog Daying the error until it is fixed using dnf.

@rwlowry Mostly because there are no simple, fast, no-bullshit options that vaguely resemble #RHEL.

It's something I've really missed at work where certain colleagues insist on staying at least somewhat compatible with RHEL. Besides, I like how #DNF handles transactions and history even if the spec files are written in a terrible DSL.

I don't particularly condone VMware's business practices but #tdnf is one of their simpler, more open projects.

#AlpineLinux and #musl also, in my opinion, can focus a bit too much on correctness to the point where it impacts usability, compability and freedom of choice.

Who said #Fedora's update tool #DNF is slow? With some tweaking it is pretty much flying!

#max_parallel_downloads=20 (because why not?)
#defaultyes=True (old habits ¯⁠\⁠_⁠(⁠ツ⁠)⁠_⁠/⁠¯ )

Now that I can jump between distros on the command-line in a breath using Distrobox, it’s amazing to see how fast pacman (Arch) is compared to dnf (Fedora) and apt (Debianish).

Of course, if you’re a human being – not a robot – make sure you alias the most common two commands to something human.

e.g., in Fish shell:

abbr --add --global pacman-install 'sudo pacman -S'
abbr --add --global pacman-search 'pacman -Ss'

#dnf search with Harmony's first bot, Barista!

a user called janet using a bot by sending "dnf search -d fedora foliate" into chat, which the bot responds to with search results for foliate in fedora's package repositories.

I really appreciate the fact that RHEL/Fedora based containers don't require to run an analogue to `apt-get update` prior to installing something via `dnf install`.

I have discovered a bugbear with #Fedora34. With #KDE, it uses the #discover #updater and for some bizarre reason, that requires the system to restart even for #software that doesn’t need a system restart. That seems very wasteful of time. I think I’ll just use #dnf on the #CommandLine in future.
