Clean install Void on uEFI -



Not too bad. The installer barfed the first time around, but went to completion.

^Very nice PackRat!

So it turns out it isn't the Kernel using up the cpu, and causing temps to run high.  Tis the subwoofer.py script I'm running to get my 5.1 DynAudio sound system on the laptop working.  Totally worth it...

Had a hard time installing any distro on that T400 didn't you? Thinkpads seem to be problematic.

Back on topic -

Surprisingly no!  I did however have to beef up my wifi skills using stuff like netctl, wpa_supplicant, and dhcpcd command line tools.  I've had less than pleasurable experiences over there at the forum, and almost equivalent when it comes to installing arch.  This time was different though for some reason.  It actually did go pretty simple.  I even put it on a partition on the newer MSI.  Was able to get wifi up with virtually no problems...



Back down to the 4.12 Kernel, which seems to run much cooler.  That is however without the subwoofer.py file running that kicks in the DynAudio subwoofer built into the bottom of the lappy. :'(

This one is a 17" so quite big and heavy.  A true beast...  :)

Nice to see you lwfitz!  8) Looking good!

Back to my goto VSIDO.  Played with Arch for a couple weeks...

Clean VSIDO, with Fluxbox of course...  mof, I don't even have another window manager installed on my goto, which never changes!  ???

Also thought I'd mention that this is my typical package count with my regular stuff installed and a good base VSIDO going.

All roads lead back to fluxbox.  ;D



spam the screenshot thread today - fluxbox and matching tint2 theme (tint2 theme needs monochrome icons, or maybe ACYL):

Photographing dragonflies has definitely been the meme for this summer; good year for them.

Some nice Halloween pennants out today. Also some huge red saddlebags out as well, but they wouldn't land.
