Heya! I'm paskariu and I occasionally draw stuff (mostly fanart). And I can't think of more to say

who needs arms anyways...

aka a doodle to try out a new shading style. Really like how it looks on the hair and clothes.

Anyone else find it cool that she still refers to the player as summoner (or even talks to us period)?


ok I'm pretty sure I lost the motivation for inktober. Oh well might fuck around and still complete some or just over the rest of the year idk

"Minecraft Steve and Sans Undertale are friends" is not the headcanon I was expecting to encounter in 2020, but I am all for it.


Inktober 2020: 4-Radio

I may have completely forgotten that inktober started but have the first belated piece aka a Sackboy with a radio head.

making a new post because I'm starting to feel bad for cluttering up dashboards with this monster of a thread

anyways I shot the root partition :(

back to basically square one (just that I still have the liveUSB). But now I know what NOT to do with a root partition. At least the swap and boot partition are fine

this took MUCH less time this time around. I’m already at the point where I can try to reboot into the proper environment fingers crossed

IT BOOTS

anyways grub2 still doesn’t find windows 10 but it can still boot when I change the boot priority order to the actuall windows boot manager at the top. So basically dual boot with extra steps until I get that figured out. So I decided to boot windows because I’m still stuck in console mode in linux. AND THE WINDOWS SET UP MENU STARTS. I skipped it just because I wanted to see what had happened. I didn’t mount any windows partitions with the exeption of the efi boot one but that one doesn’t contain the os so that didn’t break it. Turns out windows is completely fine and exactly as I left it.

jesus christ windows way to give me a heart attack

since I once again have no clue about what I'm doing I'll just start semi liveblogging my misadventures of trying to dual boot a laptop with windows 10 and gentoo linux:

Stuff that has already happened:

  • gotta start with the wonderful pleasure that is the factory installed Windows 10

  • deinstall everything I don't want/need/have a licence for

  • had to shrink the windows C: partition to make space for linux, windows said that it NEEDS at least half of the available space on the hard drive

  • found a tutorial to avoid that, turns out it only needed a 31gb minimum instead of the ~500gb it wanted

  • decided to be nice and assign windows 200gb, somehow turned into 240gb total

  • shrank that down to assigning 150gb (total 170someting gb) because I'm petty like that and because windows insisted on starting edge (which I had already blocked)

  • proceed down the handbook and attempt to make a liveCD

  • imagine my face when I realised that the laptop cannot run any disks

  • aight this is what USBs are for I guess, liveUSB it is!


paskariu -
  • the image is downloaded and verified and everything lets go!

  • liveUSB attempt #1: didn't boot, back to the handbook

  • tried a different command in the terminal: beeping sounds and slew of symbols the poor laptop I'm abusing for the cause of a liveUSB can't show. control c'd that pretty fast

  • wait what dev/sdc node is this thing on??? aka time to guess and hope nothing important breaks (aka I'm currently using the family laptop and if this thing breaks my brother will kill me and won't ever let me live this down) (quick side note: the family laptop is not the one I'm trying to instal linux on)

  • lost the coinflip but luckily nothing seems broken, time to start with what HAS to be the right one

  • liveUSB attempt #2: still didn't boot :(

  • lost the coin flip again: coin landed in the well. I wish for a working liveUSB

  • checked USB stick: it somehow still has all of it's original data on it (from when my dad used it last year)? where and on what did I copy and burn the stuff on o.O

  • maybe I should just ask my dad to burn one for me at this point but what little pride and confidence I have depends on this now. I'm invested

  • dev/sdc can't be found anymore... that doesn't sound too good. I guess I'll take a break for now


paskariu -
  • downloaded rufus to try to burn the liveUSB with windows
  • meanwhile my dad was checking what I did yesterday: couldn’t find any obvious
  • mistakes, amased that I went through the trouble of verifying the image
  • burned liveUSB#3 using rufus
  • liveUSB attempt#3: STILL DOESN’T BOOT, however it boots on the family laptop for some reason???
  • dad recommended to burn a system rescue cd instead, said it would be easier to set up (minimal cd only for “hard men”)
  • burning #4 with the sys rescue instead
  • google if windows 10 is being a little bitch about booting from USBs
  • windows is in fact a lil bitch (yes I’m getting kinda fed up with this)
  • changed boot priority order to have usb cd first -> didn’t work
  • changed network boot to usb cd -> didn’t work
  • changed network boot to usb hdd -> didn’t work
  • manually selected the usb drive -> DIDN’T WORK
  • I’ll take a break and eat lunch
  • alright lunch is over
  • my dad somehow walked in the moment I tried out the liveUSB again spoilers it still didn’t work
  • he starts messing around with the BIOS menu, no progress because he did exactly what I have been doing for the last 2 days
  • FINALLY FOUND THE FIX WE NEEDED TO TURN OFF SECURE BOOT (because a sys rescue cd isn’t safe apparently)
  • long story short I am now typing this from the booted sys rescue that includes firefox I’d type a smiley or more like a thousand here but that would require me to find out what the American keybinds of my German keyboard are and I just now realised how different they are aka the reason I’m not typing out many symbols
    time to find out which steps of the handbook I still need to follow because everything is pretty much set up for installation
  • step 4 of the installation it is
  • time to find a way to create the partitions without deleting the windows 10 ones

paskariu -
  • wait what do you mean I have to wipe the entire harddrive!? I can’t do that AND dual boot (because if you install windows second it will fuck up every previously installed os with its parasidic ways)
  • please dual boot tutorial help me where the handbook failed
  • what do you mean creating a key wtf are you on tutorial???
  • screw that thing back to the handbook we go
  • fuck step one Imma skip it and follow the handbook without wiping the drive first
  • do I or do I not need a seperate BIOS partition?
  • the answer is no but it’s recommended to do so anyways
  • nice EFI partition already exists because windows needs it too
  • create the BIOS, swap, and root partitions with gparted
  • can’t mount the root partition………. no mount point apparently
  • delete all new partitions, repeat creation of new partitions; maybe I made a stupid error?
  • nope still not mounting
  • no clue what I did wrong
  • take a break
  • dad recommended a logical volume system for the partitions
  • ok I already don’t really know which partitions I need/ don’t need this is gonna be fun
  • get stuck; nothing’s working
  • alright we got this this
  • create a Boot partition(1GB) and a LVM physical volume (rest of the disk)
  • create a volume group called vol1 that uses the physical volume
  • create a logical volume for swap space (1GB) and root (half of physical volume)
  • attempt to mount dev/vol1/root -> still not mounting
  • gentoo forum it is
  • THANK YOU RANDOM CITIZEN THAT HAD THE SAME PROBLEM 18 YEARS AGO
  • create a mount point -> root mounts now!
  • onwards to the next step! PROGRESS FINALLY
  • installed multilib stage 3 (the handbook even said that the no-multilib one scares their developers staying FAR away from that)
  • partially optimised make.conf to the point where it’s usable; mental note to complete it later once everything is somewhat set up
  • tried to use a mirror filesystem -> command not found; alright the step was optional anyways so I don’t really care
  • mounted necessary filesystems aka copied the commands in the handbook
  • synced the portage
  • selected a profile
  • chroot
  • currently updating the laptop so the new profile can work (currently at 133 out of 280) while my atheist behind prays that it works because I already shot the family laptop once due to messing up the update. if this fails I’ll likely have to start over
  • IT SHUT DOWN FOR NO REASON AFTER UPDATING FOR 2 HOURS WHAT IS THIS
  • had to repeat every step since mounting the root volume luckily they didn’t take long since it’s just copy and pasting commands for the most part, fingers crossed

paskariu -
  • IT WORKED ONWARDS IT IS
    set language -> everything EXCEPT the keyboard’s keybinds is in German now
  • FeelsBadMan
  • try to configure kernel
  • need genkernel-next due to the LVM but it is bugged out and thus not available anymore (deletion in 30 days)
  • ask my dad for alternatives: genkernel-next is actually not necessary and the handbook portion for systemd outdated nice
  • build kernel more like genkernel all
  • try to update the profile now that everything should be there -> not working deja vu
  • google the error message in search for a fix and found a forum article from 2019 with the same error. The verdict? It’s a bug. Comment by developer that the bug is fixed…….. OK NO YOU DIDN’T FIX SHIT YOU DID
  • spent the entirety of friday and saturday trouble shooting
  • meanwhile solved a problem which blocked the systemd ebuild
  • also about the bug from a few days ago: apparently removing all but the 2 default use flags fixed it???? maybe I inserted the others wrong….
  • run into 2 other problems tho which are apparently known but others weren’t able to replicate them ergo closed ergo I am really good at either a) configuring my stuff wrong or b) finding bugs

alrighty a lot happened once the ball got rolling

  • I caved and asked my dad for help -> turns out that rebuilding the system aka reinstalling everything via one command fixed it. It took a few hours but those hours were just the compiling for the most part. Again only one command was all it took.
  • time to write /ect/fstab so it knows where to find the necessary partitions (not sure if I used the correct names for the logical volumes tho)
  • attempt to configure the network
  • set the host name; skipped network name because I don’t need that
  • netifrc is only for openrc onwards to the systemd article
  • emerge networkmanager
  • the commands don’t work because the chroot is in openrc oof
  • resolv.conf is gone???? aka no internet for this boy
  • I’m pretty sure one of the commands for the networkmanager didn’t fail and is causing this but I don’t know how to undo it
    can’t emerge shit or even sync this is bad
  • got my dad again: in my attempts to get the networkmanager to run I made resolv.conf a link to a file of said manager only that the manager didn’t run which turned resolv.conf into an empty link. He deleted the link then wrote resolv.conf manually which still didn’t fix the issue
  • we named it resolf.conf we’re stupid
  • with the correct name it actually worked. plus he told me not to worry about network stuff too much because we still have lan should wlan not work
  • set root password
  • installed grub2 as bootloader
  • installed the other stuff to help it find windows 10
  • the moment of truth is upon us
  • unmounted everything
  • attempt reboot into the new system
  • grub2 is starting
  • selected gentoo
  • and it can’t find the root or swap partition :(
  • forced shutdown and rebooted via the liveUSB
  • reenter the chroot environment
  • turns out yes the names in fstab were wrong because the mount point wasn’t /dev/mapper/vol1-root as the tutorial would have you believe but actually /dev/vol1/root
  • saved edits, unmount everything
  • reboot #2: IT LIVES HALELUJA
  • but it’s currently in console mode so still have to figure that one out + for some reason windows 10 doesn’t show up in the boot menu
  • finally completed the network now that it is booted in the systemd environment
  • set timezone to Europe/Berlin because I accidentally set the one for the sys rescue earier oops
  • also created a user so I don’t have to do everything as root once everything is done because you can do some serious damage by accident otherwise (& set the password + groups for the user)
  • now I can finally shut it down and not have to worry about the battery running out or the battery getting damaged by constantly charging

Anyone wanna update a laptop for me by chance? It won't let me reinstal the desktop. It's fine rn because everything is already loaded but should this thing shut down I'm in huge trouble. Doesn't help that my father is like: "You should do it yourself. Making mistakes along the way is how you learn" but I seriously don't wanna break this thing.

Nothing I do is working because it feels like every program is blocking everything and nothing has all the dependencies it needs but like I literally can't do anything because everything is blocking everything. Help

I FOUND THE MISTAKE

so turns out the advice I got that if x is blocking y(the thing you want to install/update) deinstall x and reinstall it later, doesn't always apply.

Anyway, I deleted the ebuild of the fucking library
