God morgen!

Good morning. Weather could go either way

I upgraded to 22.04 this morning and it is nothing but :poop:

thomas10:04:55

My Android emulator doesn't work anymore and when the screen locks I can't log back in again 😞

maleghast11:04:38

There's nothing worse than when a trusted environment / tool just fails and it's really not your fault.

maleghast11:04:46

I realise it's no use to you now, but I have had less of these kinds of things happen on Linux since I moved to Arch... You don't have to sacrifice convenience either with Manjaro there to be a friendly distro on top of Arch.

dharrigan11:04:40

arch is da'boss.

thomas11:04:20

I have heard about.. but not to keen on switching over at the moment

maleghast11:04:08

No, of course not, I totally get that @U052852ES 🙂 Just a suggestion for something to consider in calmer times in the future.

thomas11:04:48

even weirder though, I am running 21.10 now... and not 22.04 which was my intention to update to...

In my experience rolling release distros in general tend to be more stable than point release distros (especially when it comes to system upgrades), surprisingly. But even point release distros can vary. Fedora is supposed to be bleeding edge but it's been much less frustrating for me than Ubuntu LTS. Regardless, I strongly believe that the Nix/Guix model is the future :)

practicalli-johnny13:04:04

For Ubuntu LTS versions I always wait for the point release, as that is the recommended approach for production systems. There isnt much new in Ubuntu 22.04 if you're already running 20.10. Also if there is nvidia or AMD graphics hardware, you should always check that its supported in the new release. I discovered that AMD are really bad at updating their code and only support Ubuntu LTS versions, after they have been released.

practicalli-johnny13:04:27

I always run a stable Ubuntu and use PPA's or a local install if I need specific newer things... there is very little new stuff needed, although I do like using emacs-snapshot (Emacs 29.0.50) from the Ubuntu PPA, its noticably faster than 27.x

practicalli-johnny13:04:34

I did try out arch but there was a lot more work to set things up and once I had it working I rarely updated it anyway. I appreciate people need new updates for some things, but I rarely have that need now. I use Regolith Linux (Ubuntu +i3 nicely configured) as the tiling window manager fits my workflow perfectly (and I am too busy to set it all up manually). So now I only update every year or so. I had a desktop that was running Ubuntu 18.10 and I managed to update it to 21.10 without any problems, once I added the Ubuntu distro archive. Everything still worked (although a bit faster)

thomas13:04:34

yeah, it seems that the AMD GPU drivers are causing the problems...

mpenet11:04:42

everything works fine for me on 22.04

pez11:04:38

Morning!

lread13:04:04

Good morning!

otfrom13:04:14

for those who are interested: put your Mastodon handle in the thread here

practicalli-johnny13:04:09

[email protected] (sad that they dont allow - in user names)

vijaykiran13:04:02

Searching for people on mastodon is 🙀

otfrom14:04:28

it is a bit, thus the party here

schaueho07:04:51

I wonder why so many people are signing up with mastodon.social as there are quite a number of more dedicated instances. E.g., I'm on functional.cafe run by @U052TDWT7 which is attracting people which are interested in functional programming.

otfrom07:04:43

I'm on mastodon.social b/c I signed up a long time ago and I was lazy

schaueho07:04:11

I was more elduing to the rush of new joiners. I guess people are not aware what the benefits and the effect of a federated social network realy are.

javahippie07:04:00

That was the issue for me, to be honest. Mastodon tried to find a fitting instance for me, but they were small and it was hard to find out who was running it, so I joined the one the others were on.

mdallastella07:04:49

Morning. Currently functional.cafe is invite only, drop me a DM if you're interested to join. 👋:skin-tone-2:

Remy08:04:22

I'm on http://fosstodon.org @ but haven't used the account in a while (i.e. didn't know Clojure at the time) and sounds like functional.cafe would be a better fit nowadays... @U052TDWT7 if you wouldn't mind 🙏

mdallastella08:04:28

@UQEB56A4E of course not, just DM me your email address 🙂

mdallastella08:04:40

Let's do this, if you wanna join functional café, just follow this invitation link: https://functional.cafe/invite/TzYgPMev

otfrom13:04:40

thx for the invites and hosting @U052TDWT7

mdallastella13:04:12

You're welcome! 🙂

otfrom20:05:35

@U052TDWT7 I fear I may have broken functional.cafe with an overlong post about Star Trek. Sorry...

mdallastella06:05:14

Doesn't look broken... What happened?

otfrom07:05:33

seems to have recovered. Just tried posting something that failed (it ended up in my drafts) and then the server was unavailable for around 10 minutes

otfrom07:05:47

seems OK today (and my cut in 2 version seemed to post fine)

mdallastella07:05:53

:thinking_face: I'll made some tests with long toots, thanks.

Gonna help my dear old Pa file his taxes today, which me luck!

lread13:04:38

Ha! Love it!

practicalli-johnny13:04:59

Hmm, Mastodon is timing out when I try and follow anyone... I like the Mastodon getting angry at the computer when something is broken 😂

vijaykiran13:04:12

I can’t even load any profiles .. I already like how anti-social it is. Suites me

borkdude13:04:50

practicalli-johnny14:04:32

I've followed 3 people but no one has followed me back... I feel sad 😢

vijaykiran14:04:04

I’m trying to - but none of the profiles load for me

otfrom14:04:29

I think they'll be flooded with people joining as usually happens when Twitter gets spooked

maleghast14:04:09

What node / server and what's your id @U05254DQM? I'll follow you 🙂

otfrom14:04:47

hmmm... I think we may need a different node to pile into. Any suggestions?

maleghast14:04:09

I am kitty-town, but it's a bit small and requires quite strict adherence to Community Standards that I am fine with, but others may see as overly restricting.

maleghast15:04:29

Sorry kitty.town

practicalli-johnny15:04:35

I just signed up at the matodon.social website with practicalli_john but I have no idea about nodes or servers... sorry.

otfrom15:04:07

your node/server is mastodon.social then @U05254DQM which is the one that is straining atm as everyone is trying to sign up there rather than on other servers in the fediverse

🤯 2
practicalli-johnny15:04:44

Is there an emacs mode for it?

otfrom07:04:40

I'm now sad that @U05254DQM hasn't tooted at me in the fediverse

practicalli-johnny07:04:47

I am hoping someone does a mastodon 101 tutorial, because I am confused 😂

practicalli-johnny08:04:24

Thanks, I should send you a PDA: on mastodon 😜

otfrom08:04:36

always up for hugs, or chips

genRaiy19:04:41

Ok so I'm just catching up on Twitter agreeing to sell to musk. #fediverse
