New website design

I re-designed the website design, and imho this now looks more professional and organized than before. Check this out:

I think that people who are using social media are perhaps more used to working with,  recognizing  icons.
Still I find it strange that you choose text for some elements and icons  for other equal important content elements.

Everything locally is up to date. If I put iso image onto a usb drive it works fine. Might simply be a driver issue with virtualbox

Raspberry Pi 2

This video shows off how fast void boots on the rpi2, as well as it is running Kodi 14.1 smoothly.

The rpi2 rootfs tarballs and images with void will soon be available for everybody.

Enjoy

I like the RPi as a miscellaneous network controller. Its energy consumption is low enough that I can leave it on 24/7 without a second thought and have it run cron jobs. I have it running lighttpd and use it as a web-interface for controling my media center in the living room.

One of these days I'll get the RPi2. Hopefully it's powerful enough to run 1080p on a larger screen without stuttering like the ones I've had in the past.

libressl 2.1.3 rebuild

libssl soname has been bumped to 30 in that version, until all packages are rebuilt against libssl30 (see build.voidlinux.eu), please install manually libssl29.

Thanks

I think installation of the libssl29 package is more or less needed, even if you updated after the transition period. Otherwise the old libssl29.so will not be associated with any package and thus will never be removed.

So after I upgraded network manager from a fresh install to current, Network manager goes into a loop of connecting and disconnecting to my wifi. I had this issue before and proceeded to removed void linux, install a different distro and come back to void. This time when I installed I made sure to get gnome-keyring for wifi password prompt and all worked fine. I was able to connect with no issues to my wpa protected ssid.

As said before, as soon as I ran a system upgrade and rebooted, Now I can't connect. Just a loop. If anyone has ideas as to how to fix this issue, I would be very pleased as I would like to keep Void Linux on this laptop.


Oh and also, network manager was able to connect to the same ssid with the same encryption without a problem. Maybe I am missing a package?

Recently discovered Void Linux. Installed on my main box and I am excited to start delving into xbps and runit in my free time. I've been looking for a simplistic and minimal distribution - one resembling Arch Linux prior to its adoption of systemd. Void Linux seems to fit the bill. My thanks to the development team.

Are there any plans for proper forums?  Using this is obnoxious, but I understand using it for the time being due to the low numbers.

Anyway, on to my point.  It would just be nice to have a better place to reference information.  I read all the github messages.  People trying to become packagers could greatly benefit from a lot of the information I've seen passed back and forth.

The greatest benefit would be to the project leaders, freeing them from having to say the same thing every time a new contributor shows up.

(long ramble, there's a tl;dr at the end)

One last thing, what can I do to help Void?  Currently I maintain a few packages, but I want to do more.  Voidlinux is the first project I've contributed to beyond some minor programming with friends.

I believe Void Linux is the best Linux distribution for the user who is not afraid of the terminal.

 Before void, I believed that honor to belong to ArchLinux.  While the AUR is amazing, I find void to be faster and more stable than Arch.  Also I love runnit over systemd.

tl;dr
I love Void Linux and want it to flourish.  Therefore, I would like to know more ways I can contribute.

I use zotero for reference management with libreoffice. One of its extensions needs gloobus-preview. I searched for gloobus preview on the git repo and found none. When I try to run ./configure in the extracted directory of the file downloaded from launchpad, I get this error:

Any suggestions how to install Void without installing the bootloader too?

Should be nice to add this choice to the installer.

Having an issue with building a custom package (wmii) with xbps-src. I have installed all the -devel dependencies in the chroot but I'm still getting compile time errors.

"/usr/bin/ld: wmii/xext.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XRenderQueryExtension'
/usr/lib//libXrender.so.1: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line"

libXrender and the -devel headers are installed along with libXext and its devel package.  Include paths are correct also.

Strange since it builds fine on the host system but not with xbps-src's chroot.

Any ideas?

Yup, that worked. I was putting -lXrender in the LD statement of the config.mk that came in the wmii source and it wasn't working. Your solution fixed it. Thank you.

Am having quite a few problems running Void linux under Virtualbox. Could not run i686 iso unless PAE was enabled. Once installed it booted fine. Then I ran xbps-install -Su and then if froze on tzdata. Powering off did not help and virtual system is now broken. Have heard from other users having issues with running isos under Virtualbox. Have found that on a real usb device isos work fine.

Is there a way to build i686 iso under x86_64, certainly would make life a little easier?

Built i686 this morning without any real problems. Iso name included x86_64 that was an easy fix ( used  ${BASE_ARCH}).

Would it be possible to add a package for Timidity++ for MIDI playback in Deadbeef? There don't appear to be any players in the repos for MIDI files and Fluidsynth+Jack doesn't seem to work. Even with the right permissions, it will output no audio.

GNOME 3.14

GNOME 3.14 is now available in Void... suspend/hibernate buttons don't work without systemd and there's still one issue with gnome-settings-daemon and NetworkManager-1.0 that needs to be fixed, but it works for daily usage.
