The Return of The Saturday Night Milanga

A freezing Saturday night (actually, more like Sunday at dawn) the mighty milanesas came back.
And with oven cooked potatoes and sweet potatoes

Devuan on The Thinkpad T60p

Installed Devuan (via the Net Installer) on Friday, the idea is to see if a systemd free OS has a lighter push on the old T60p.
In the end everything went A Ok, as opposed as using the Minimal Live ISO, I've tried and tried with that ones, but everything failed using that image...
Baffled, but moved on, so, d'loaded the Net Install ISO, always 32 bits, since this is the T60, and onto the install I jumped.
The install was a piece of cake, using an encrypted LVM.


Chose XFCE (what else, right?) and nothing is new.
The install, once is done, uses around 3 GB of HDD (I have to delete the Games, BTW) and RAM usage, right upon booting, is around 166 MB.
Suspend (and Un-Suspend) works Ok, WiFi and sound too.

Movies During The Weekend



Only two movies past weekend... It was a hellish weekend, full of shopping activity with the GF.
Both of the movies selected by the GF herself!

Love, Simon:
Cool one, but not as cool as Call Me, By Your Name.
Sort of like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but with gayness.

The Strangers Prey At Night:
Nice, entertaining on its own way, we were both sure this one it was going to be worst than the first one, but it turned out exactly the same.

Void Linux + Thinkpad T60p: Sort of Fail


Installed Void Linux today, this time on the T60p, everything went A Ok with the installation, even encrypting the whole disk, on a LVM, like I said, the whole thing reminds me a lot to the FreeBSD/ OpenBSD installer, the "hardest" part is the partitioning.
Anyways, after the base install is done, mandatory reboot, login, even with encryption, everything kosher.
So, boot and on we go to the updates!
After a xbps-install -Suv and downloading some 500 MB of updates, another reboot, and now things went to hell...

Booting passes the encryption, and the login manager pops up A Ok... Login works; but...
After that X dies on me, with an error message like this:

nm-dispatcher: req:1 'hostname' : new request (0 scripts)
nm-dispatcher: req:1 'hostname' : completed: no scripts

Tried re-booting using different kernels, killing Network Manager from a Virtual Console, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace, etc...
Nothing, the whole thing just dies right there.
A real bummer... No more time right now to see what a fuck is wrong with this.
