Cool it sounds like some of the Parabola guys are involved with Hyperbola, and it's Arch with LTS non-rolling releases. Sounds interesting let us know how it goes.

Meh, this distro is the worst fuckin pile to ever touch the internet. Idk what to do now, first budgie breaks as I'm configuring it, so I go thru the hassle of irc support trying to figure out what happened.

I tried removing sddm and just setting the system to load budgie upon login, that didn't work. I reinstalled sddm, removed budgie and replaced it with mate, as I'm configuring things, I install git and a few other things so I can install a dkms driver for a realtek WiFi adapter. I get that installed and then mate breaks.

So I installed cinnamon with everything it needs. Tried to login with that, and I can't even get it to load a de now.

So this officially ends my hyperbola venture.

Dang bummer wave. Maybe Parabola with Open RC would be a good fit?

I was thinking about it, then I found this distro called alfheim Linux. The devs just released the first full version of the distro 2 months ago.

It uses openrc and sysvinit. Its a combination of arch, artix and sparky, it uses a unique fast install script you can modify for your system. Its got a pretty neat package management GUI that updates from the official repos and the aur.

It comes with openbox and comes with a cool Nordic wallpaper set. I think this distro will last a long time.

Yea, its a much more stable distro, especially for being a very new distro.

It also has quite a large screensaver collection

Screensavers full of pagan symbols? The nordic stuff sounds good. This looks way too bleeding edge for me, but I really like the diversity this guy is trying to bring to linux. Maybe I'll try it on a secondary machine.
