It's awful when you go from something that was stable and finished to something that's obviously not. You'd think OS-class code would be, you know, good.

  • Ubuntu 22.04 updates and restarts... - Erik_, Wed Oct 12 2022 4:01pm
    This has been starting to bug me a little bit. I've been using Linux for almost 20 years now and ever since upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04 the amount of times I've had to restart my computer due to an update has been more than I'm used to. I only really remember full system reboots for updates required... more

Which is nice because building from sources only seems to go two ways: Easy 1-2-3 or a long process of installing dependencies and trying to figure out what broke and where. I never tried Rasbian... more
            • Don't Debian and Ubuntu share the same package - Puckdropper, Sun Nov 27 2022 1:25am
              system? I'm always surprised when I get an easy 1-2-3 that's not a package. It's so weird. Usually I've found a guide and I'm following it telling me exactly what to type.
