Are you considering getting rid of systemd?  If so, I am just curious why.  I don't have enough knowledge of the architecture, advantages, and disadvantages of SysV init, Upstart, and systemd to have an educated opinion either way.

it's not fully ready. It's enough for a minimal system but before I make the switch all packages that have services must be converted to runit.

I was just going to ask for help setting up Java because I'm trying to learn Clojure (which requires the JDK) and my kids play Minecraft.  But "xbps-query -s java" found it, so thanks!  I'm pretty sure it wasn't available a few months ago.

This was added 2 months ago by Gottox. We should really switch someday to openj{dk,re}... because distribution is not permitted... but hey, we aren't making any harm :-)

Et vu l'ancienneté du code, et les instructions de compilations longue comme le bras, mieux vaut ne pas s'attendre à des miracles :D

Mais tu m'as donné envie de m'y replonger :D

One minor problem...
I have a problem with lxappearance and icons.

If I install an icon set from VOID, awoken-icons-dark, for example, then the icons are installed and available no problem.
If I try to install any other icon theme then they install but are not available. The icon set does not appear correctly in lxappearance preview.
I have tried using the command;
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/DarkFuture (for example)
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/gtk-update-icon-cache.html
but this command gives an invalid icon cache message...

Any ideas on this minor issue would be appreciated.

Thanks for the info.
Still no go on a couple of icon themes but most are working after your advice above.

Grub VOID 'unknown Linux distribution'???
I have VOID 32bit installed on ssd number1 and Void is listed correctly as 'Void GNU/Linux'.
I have VOID 64bit installed on ssd number 2 and Void is listed as;
'unknown Linux distribution'
Grub is installed to sda ie.my 32 bit ssd number1

Why does this happen?

Because I can't see what's wrong with my patch... it should work :-)

How do you set up dual boot?  I have Microsoft Windows on one drive on my personal desktop.  I would like to replace my previous Linux installation with Void (instead of running Void in a virtual machine), but I need to be able to boot Windows.  Is there any easy way to set that up?

Correction, os-prober does have some probes for EFI actually.

I'm so sorry guys... you can use your favourite fork instead.
