Did you say "don't cut"?

The right way to finish a stage.

It's hard to tell when your spectators are rectangular blocks, but i bet those are some pleased rally fans!

Enjoying Genshin Impact while it lasts.

Finally an update to No Man's Sky where the game doesn't crash. Started a new game and managed to play 40mins straight without crashing.



The screenshot below has a story to tell.

I'm currently *still* running Debian 9, reason is moving to a newer one (such as Debian 10) will require a lot of work due to the amount of customizations I've implemented and Debian 11 is just a few months away, that's when I'll upgrade (rolling distros are not an option for me). In the meantime I wanted to play this game again (compatibility with older distros broke with the latest update), so what could I do besides waiting? Enter the world of Chroot.

What I did:
Downloaded Ubuntu 20.10 ISO and have extracted the 'filesystem.squashfs' file. (This file contains the live environment).
Unpacked the squashfs file itself into a folder. (With this done I can now Chroot via terminal into the system).
In terminal I ran: xhost +local: (This will allow GUI software from the chroot environment to run on my real desktop).

Here's the tricky part:
mounted real "/dev/snd" to "my/chroot/dev/snd" (This gave sound access to the chroot)
mounted real "/dev/dri" to "my/chroot/dev/dri" (This partially gave GPU access to the chroot)
mounted real "/sys" to "my/chroot/sys" (This gave further access to the GPU inc. acceleration)

End Result:

EDIT: Tried the same method with Nvidia GPU and as expected didn't work, normal utilities such as calculator or even file manager works fine but nothing in the way of 3d acceleration (not even llvmpipe).

Most people won't need this but it goes to show the power and flexibility of Linux.
