And one little detail I forgot to mention.

- Immutable root directory except for the directories enabled in the overlay (using OverlayFS, of course)

How does the root directory of *my* Linux looks like

- Human readable structure for the top-level directories
- Simple structure for the znx directory (STORE); OS as a single file
- System AppImages in /Applications; the only authentic way (😋)

Also, other things I haven't shown in a clip.

- /bin/sh is mksh
- sudo is a symlink to doas
- I use OpenRC (obviously.)

How *I* update my

- No package manager is involved
- No internet is needed
- Takes approx. one minute
- Reboot to an already updated system; no need to reboot, then update, then reboot again
- Backup of prev. version

🤷‍♂️ People saw this as heresy in Linux distributions.

Also:

- Only thing updated was (quite literally) a single file
- Boot to prev. Version if required from the bootloader (thanks to znx)

Ah, yes, because I'm using znx.

Huh, Bauh is available as an . Cool, now I have a GUI for Flatpak that's not Discover.

😋

PSA: We're looking into what has caused the Software Center not to load content from AppImageHub.com

DwarFS can produce read-only file systems that is 1/10 of what SquashFS can produce. Decompression is faster too.

Should we switch to DwarFS for AppImages?

Continuing with this tutorial series about service files, today, we’ll look at a simple and comparable way to make “user services” available in Nitrux.

In Nitrux, we utilize OpenRC as the init-system; it differs from the more widely used systemd software suite.

In today’s tutorial, we’ll check how to create service files (scripts) for use with OpenRC.

Wayland and PipeWire are poised to be the future of Linux display and audio servers, respectively. Today’s tutorial will check how to use Wayland and PipeWire in Nitrux.

PSA: We're removing all available kernels from our repository due to the increase in the cost of bandwidth to serve these packages. Instead, kernel updates for the default kernel we use in the distribution (XanMod) will come from a repository by its developer(s). The Liquorix kernel will also be available from a repository by its developer(s).
