Hi everyone,
I wanted to use Voidlinux since a year or something as a home http server on a BeagleBone Black. Unfortunately the installation description never worked for me - nothing boots, the connected screen remains black, only a single diode is turned on on the board which means it's in a failed state. I cannot debug the problem because I don't have any serial cable which would let me see the boot procedure output from the board. I checked again today: now it's even worse - the procedure from the wiki seems incorrect - the required rootfs image is missing. I'd like to finally understand what am I doing wrong and make it work. Can you help me?

This is what I used for reference: https://wiki.voidlinux.eu/Beaglebone
The void-beaglebone-rootfs-<date>.tar.xz is missing from current.
I also tried to use void-beaglebone-musl-20171007.img.xz and just xzcat it to a SD card - doesn't work with the same result as above - single diode on.

Is there an unofficial repository for Void like AUR in Archlinux?
Where can I find more packages?

Hello, everybody.
I got into Void Linux a while ago and I really liked it. I made some experiments and now I have installed it as my main working Linux notebook and it's going fine.
I use build with musl library.
I got into building from sources, from void-packages and discovered there were some problems, coming from updated gperf  3.1. I patched the packages affected and ran a small repo for my patches here:
https://github.com/IronBug/voidlinux-musl-patches
Now it builds without problems.

I also patched and built some utils for Void with musl for my needs and I plan to packet them into xbps, as soon as I get into xbps. I work as a C/C++ programmer for over 15 years and it is not a big deal for me, but maybe my patches could be useful for somebody else. So I just put it here.

Hi !
After the last update(4.8.8 ), Void cant boot (start booting and get shutdown before login ) ....a try to boot from previous kernels /recovery mode dosnt help...

its was update with the warning of :
"Attention: if your sh is not dash (xbps-alternatives -l -g sh): before your next system update reset it to dash: xbps-alternatives -s dash"

but I made checking dash before ....

any clue ?

I have 2 niggles with voidlinux 1st the lack of gutenprint
The 2nd this may be me i have searched for a solution but not found it
I have the latest download 64bt it immediately updates to the latest kernel when I update but just gives kernel panic on reboot the tool for removing kernels says its not installed, the search says it is installed, so am I missing something that needs to be done after it is installed. I did try another Kernel but the same message. kernel panic and bad block.

Anyone else has packages set to automatic- instead of manually installed for whatever reason?
If I try to remove orphans with 'xbps-remove -o' it lists me many packages which have been explicitly installed, like xorg-fonts, xorg-input-drivers, grub and even i3-gaps/i3blocks.
I can change the mode of packages with 'xbps-pkgdb -m manual pkg'. Reinstalling them somehow fixes it aswell, but it's quite an annoyance.

1/after an update to one of 4.7.xx kernels my broadcom wifi dosnt work (no adapter found) ...the reinstalling of "wl" package dosnt help...
2/btw , I had removed all old kernels before ....
during the reinstalling of "wl" package, installer looks for old dkms of removed kernels and I dont understand why?
any clue ? (sorry for bad English)

Despite everything i've tried i always end up getting thia error when trying to compile Android on Void Linux.
I've switched to openjdk1.7.0-u80, i've installed about every package that remotely sounded like anything needed for ubuntu and arch.
I copied over ld.gold from ubuntu to symlink to ld in android's source (workaround on Arch)
Still, it always fails with that exact error, i'm running out of ideas what to do.. i really don't want to install another distro solely for the purpose of compiling (again).

error: http://pastebin.com/vBTcPkn1

I hope i'm just missing a package there, but tbh i don't know, as nobody else seems to have encountered that exact error.

Void Puppy linux  - is it possible ??
