gnome-disk from a live-usb system sees the partition and its size, but cannot recognize the contents, filesystem type, or UUID.

Last thing I did on this machine was to do a test-run of the graphical installer. I cancelled the install process once I reached the partitioning stage, and assumed it had not written anything to disk.

Some way to recover the partition table without erasing?

Oh no:

error: attempt to read or write outside of partition.
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>

It will list the root directory of my main partition, but same error if I try to list contents of any subdirectories. :/

I'm wondering if this RISC-V dev board from SiFive would be a nice target for porting:

Another Emerald Ash Borer casualty in my neighborhood this morning. RIP 1920-2020.

It'll live on a bit longer: I spoke with the person doing the work, and they said they'll be planking it (according to local law to prevent spread) at their sawmill.

Playing around with via the demo server a bit tonight. I've wanted this for so long. I'm glad we finally have it!

And it's improving. Please help if you can!

I just updated the "tomb" package in to version 2.8. Fixes CVE-2020-28638

The online #Guix Day #conference will take place on Sunday, November 22, and you can now watch the pre-recorded talks.


Or when you have time, until the 21. We will not have a dedicated time to watch them together on Sunday, instead we will have an extended Q&A of 25 (!) minutes for each subject.

I shared my voting experience with Stand Up America today. It only takes a few moments to do and it’ll have a big impact on increasing access to the ballot box for all Americans:

covid, masks 

CDC now acknowledges that mask wearing doesn't just protect everyone else, it protects the mask wearer as well

A number of studies have come out saying this for a while. I keep hearing people saying "it doesn't protect the wearer" though. How did that become such a definitive statement, when it was only ever "we don't know if it protects the wearer, we know it protects others"?

A reminder to US voters (and spectators) that counting the surge of mail-in ballots will take time in certain states and we are unlikely to have election results tonight.

I'm just thankful that the weather was nice today so I could spend most of it outside.

You had a very good run, Sir Sean. Thank you for everything.

Running on my EeePC, sometimes when there are substitutes missing I let it build away so it can feel that sense of accomplishment. :)

Just upgraded my YunoHost box! The migration was fairly smooth, just 2 issues that were solved within about 15 minutes:
1) postgres migration got hung up somehow, had to manually delete new "11" cluster before rerunning postgres migration; and
2) matrix-synapse got stuck in a fail-to-start state, which was solved by doing an app upgrade from master.

If you're interested in setting up a #Mobilizon instance, #Yunohost has an application for this !

Package with version 1.0.0 is currently in testing (we're trying to find a way to properly run our test suite ...!)

Thought I had my patch all ready to go, with test and everything. Turns out the test doesn't recreate the failure case like I thought it did. 🙄

Need to look a little more closely at how the `load` procedure searches for files.

whoa somehow I hadn't seen the "RIAA getting GitHub to do a takedown of youtube-dl" bit
