adventures in blogging

Just a short trip through my strange computer based quests.

Still seeking alternatives

July 29, 2019 — Sifr Nihilum

I tried crux linux, in case you're curious. It took me a day to figure out why GRUB wouldn't boot into the install. I still don't know why it wouldn't. I gave up and switched to using EFISTUB, which worked like a dream. Got it up and running, copied my dotfiles over, and enjoyed it for a bit before running into multiple issues with things not installing 'cos they had dependency issues, and the dependencies not installing 'cos they had issues with dependencies, and then eventually down on the very bottom of the stack, something that just would not install.

Reminded me of the good old days. So I went back to arch.
