Lo compile y empaquete para Debian 10 amd64
#lagrange #gemini #debian
a mi me funciona. hay que probarlo.
(actually those 30 days aren't consecutive at all...)
Basically I reached the point where Xorg, Lightdm, #XFCE4 (core) and Firefox were installed.
At this point the big surprise was that #Firefox comes along a long list of missing features... WOW! Totally unexpected.
Then the lack of the volume control makes me discovering the audio wasn't setup and the pulse-audio-plugin which replaces the previous Xfce plugin's panel is not shipped anymore with Xfce.
The setup the audio was been a bit convoluted but easy since is well explained in the handbook, and for the audio I installed the old good volumeicon applet...
Then I tested the audio with FF and YT but it looks like the laptop can handle 1080p video without acceleration hence I installed Chromium and the mesa VA and VDPAU packages, I am not really sure if the latter are related with Chromium and video acceleration, but Chromium does video acceleration with YT although the wifi card has some hiccups and it is a bit unstable.
Lastly I tried to install #Lagrange which is available only as ports but after 3 hours of compiling only half of the dependencies required I gave up; this induced me three depth thoughts:
- binary packages are extremely important!
- I had better to find a native Gemini client for FreeBSD.
- How do I clean up all the gazillion of the dependencies required?
This laptop has never been very powerful to hand any video and I used to have compositing disabled all the time, also it also got stuck with Lightdm and the log-on for some undiscovered issues, mostly related with systemd, anything of this happened with FreeBSD; thus so far, so good; but I think FreeBSD deserves more love from Mozilla. I hope to improve the streaming situation next time...
