Newbie: Hello world!

Hello Rocky people.

I’m new here migrating my main workstation from Manjaro (previously Debian, and before that CentOS and before that Mandrake haha) I primarily use it for Video Editing (Resolve Studio). I also like building Android and LineageOS on my workstation.

I enjoy breaking my OS by building packages from source occasionally when I cannot find them maintained on the repos and then never updating them / resulting in broken dependencies and broken package managers. It’s a lot of fun over the last 23-24 years for sure (o:

I will be asking some questions as I am having trouble getting a Qt5 app to build and unsure how to setup a build environment for android (Rocky 9 is like wtf is this apt-get nonsense? lol). I have some limited experience with yum from CentOS 4 days and a tiny bit from QubesOS (on my laptop mainly, although I did try it in the past on my desktop but it doesn’t hand-off android devices properly for android foolery, which stopped me). My point being I have been introduced to dnf and yum and have already added 3rd party repos for nvidia and steam to install.

I was going to jump on the CentOS train again a while back but needed the bleeding edge stuff for a while and wanted to see what all the hype was about with the AUR and pacman (2018 till now). I see that most people that want a working linux environment for resolve are moving to rocky, so here I am.

wave Hieeeeeeee!

Welcome! Hope you enjoy your time here and using the distribution of your choice. Good luck on your migration!

If you ever hace questions the general forums are good and our mattermost and IRC channels have many users who are around to help (wiki info).

thanks, do ya’ll have an informal matrix / synapse chat?

We do have a matrix space here (room ID) and here. There is very little activity, though.
