Arch Linux, a lightweight and flexible Linux® distribution that tries to Keep It Simple

quote:

xorg-server 1.16 is now available

2014-07-28

The new version comes with the following changes:

X is now rootless with the help of systemd-logind, this also means that it must be launched from the same virtual terminal as was used to log in, redirecting stderr also breaks rootless login. The old root execution behavior can be restored through the Xorg.wrap config file (man xorg.wrap). Please note that launching X through a login-manager (gdm, kdm, ...) doesn't yet provide rootless access.

The default configuration files are now in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d, all host configurations are still taking place in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. Please note that files 10-evdev.conf and 10-quirks.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d could be renamed with .pacsave suffix, which could break your configuration, then just rename them and remove the .pacsave suffix.

tl;dr: here's the new xorg-server that was released five minutes ago. it's guaranteed to break every installation that uses xorg-server. it's broken because it defaults to a new configuration that nothing yet supports. to get it working again you have to create a new configuration file and fill it with new options and if you don't know what those are already, go read a manpage because gently caress you. we're also going to rename two of your configuration files for no good reason.

i downloaded arch linux once and the packaging system was broken out of the box. then i installed slackware because i wanted something that was more user-friendly.

this is a perfect execution of some classic humor, but it requires some knowledge on the part of the reader. u see a scenario is set up which is believable (pacman is broken) and then, THIS IS WHERRE THE MAGIC HAPPENS, he switches to something which has abysmal package management

I think Ubuntu is pretty cool. It's totally free, and did you know it means "peace" in African?

is there a distro that's as pleasant to janitor as arch but less of a frickin minefield every time theres a package update. my linux box is probably old enough to work with debian stable, maybe ill try that again
