What is your deal? Are you like, some kind of IT guy (master of *nixes) that slipped across the line of legality, and now on the run (Mexico) and bored out of your skull (playing with obscure operating systems)? I jest of course, just havin' a laugh, but seriously, if you're not making a boat load of money as an IT guy, you should be. You're doing some very interesting and amazing stuff, for which I wouldn't have the patience. :)

Glad you said "I jest", almost got me going,...over sensitive I guess,...

No,... not at all , not by a long shot.

On, why I am in Mexico, it is a long story, and Another Topic
So I am working on another topic.
The question kind of opened a "can of worms". But I can say, I am not "hiding"
, I travel back and forth from here to the U.S regularly and legally.

Apparently Garry has recently studied OpenBSD and Minix. By coincidence I've also recently isntalled FreeBSD and Minix. Maybe we could have a separate thread about experience about non-linux. (like other stuff than what your desktop looks like - mine always looks like I haven't tuned it at all... mostly because I rarely do)

You'll have to excuse my imagination, I'm a wannabe fiction writer that sees a story in everything. :mrgreen:

I was going to start another topic, on that, and did,...but then in the process
of also trying to explain about what and how I ended up in Mexico,...it got
all mixed up,..and went into things that happened back in the '60's,...
Actually, not all that recent, my first attempt with Minix was about 1 year ago,...
and yes we should start another topic,...
Another Off topic, Non Debian, non Linux

Ok well, then you might actually enjoy, what I wrote about, Mexico,etc,...but it got
so far off topic, it did not belong on this forum,... I will be putting it on my "personal"
site, later,....actually, some is all ready there,...but when I went to look for a
page, found the link is broken,...and now I do need to do my chores,.... later.
I enjoy writing as well.

Arch running bspwm & xfce4-panel:

This is a proof of concept: Google Chrome is running in a Debian jessie systemd-nspawn container, started with:
Code: Select all
systemd-nspawn --bind=/tmp/.X11-unix --bind-ro=$HOME/.Xauthority:/root/.Xauthority --bind=$HOME --setenv=DISPLAY=:0 --setenv=XAUTHORITY=$HOME/.Xauthority --directory /var/lib/machines/jessie --user=$USER google-chrome-stable

Hopefully, I can roll this out to my (pre-)production Debian stretch system -- if Flash is to be used then the more layers of isolation the better :evil:

It is possible to do this with LXC rather than systemd but it's a bit more complicated to set up:

My new Devuan 1.0 Beta2 install on the port 1 SSD, got rid of Ubuntu Xfce 14.04.x, too many schmatterings of a certain init hanging about, gave me the willies, lol. This is my book writing OS (hence the typewriter striker heads wallpaper), PCLOS on the port 0 SSD is my everyday farting around OS. Incidentally, my aging home DVD player loves DVDs made in Devuan with DeVeDe and burned with Xfburn at 8X, PCLOS has the newer DeVeDe, it makes a dog's breakfast, possibly during the transcoding. Between the two operating systems, there's nothing I can't do. Devuan's old HDD 'home' is now a dedicated torrent server drive.

Image

Style=Greybird (found in the murrine-themes/gtk2-engines-murrine packages)
Icons=GNOME-Noble (keep in step with Devuan's light purple colour scheme)
Window Manager Style=Shiki-Colors-Easy-Metacity (easier to mouse grab and resize, decent looking, found in the shiki-colors-xfwm-theme package, I try to stay away from Gnome and MATE themes to avoid making a 'mess' in Xfce)

O M eff G, was that a lot of work, this is why I hate reinstalling now, you wouldn't believe the amount of tweaks and customizations I have to perform after each install, now I work the paint off my keyboard's keys until my fingers bleed until I fix a current install. Nothing was broke to start all this, I just got sick of upstart-d Ubuntu occupying an SSD for nothing, and wanted to use the third HDD as a torrent server anyway, win win.

Here is the actual wallpaper in case anybody might want it.

Image

Edit: My apologies to PCLOS and DVDStyler, I FINALLY figured out how to keep the 4:3 aspect ratio and add black borders on a 720/16:9 output, funny thing though, if I burn with Brasero in PCLOS, my aging DVD player doesn't like it, but burning with Xfburn at 8x, no problem, strange. So now I can make TV show DVDs while qBittorent is running, I was getting tired of switching OSes for different tasks. One more note, if the original video file is in PAL, DeVeDe struggles with it, it takes forever to transcode. Don't get me wrong, Devuan is still great, I just don't have time to wait on DeVeDe, lol. :oops:

Very nice :) if you tweak a bit, you can go a lot more below 90MB

autoidentify
autostartx
WM: exec <openbox/dwm/spectrwm/herbstluftwm>
FM: spacefm/pcmanfm/ranger
Rar/unrar>cli
Img view: feh/sxiv
Multimedia: mpc/mpv
Web: links2/Pale Moon/Chromium
Console: xterm/urxvt/tmux

Debian/Devuan (netinst) are genius :)

That is a nice "modern looking" DE,
==============
This took me some time and a lot of attempts, but finally I got
"FVWM" working on Minix3 pretty well, I think, (still "testing")
several of my first attemtps kept crashing, with core dumps, and "lock ups",
I suppose the details would be better in another topic,...
Any way, here is what I have now:

You seriously crack me up, love the shades (on the Plan 9 bunny) and your 'location'. :lol:

But I do have a question, how do you get your screenshots to look so clean at scrot.moe? Do you resize them before uploading? Because I use shutter and the actual screenshot size is 1920x1080, which doesn't exactly fit when I view it in my browser (the side scroll bar causes screen real estate displacement), so it tends to blur it a bit when full sized. Or are you on a laptop will smaller dimensions than my screen/browser? Did I answer my own question?

Happy Holidays to all. :)
