The DIY Edition section is quickly turning into random linux distro issues. Now maybe the DIY Edition really means the Linux Edition, but I don’t think that’s the intention. And anyway, it’s still disorganized.
So maybe we should have a Linux category, with subcategories for individual distros. We should also have a no-existing-subcategory subcategory, and we can move threads out of that later.
Most importantly, we need a subcategory for distro-independent questions. Or rather, there’s one category of questions that needs to be established & set apart from the the others, namely “Has anyone gotten $SYSTEM to work correctly on any linux distro?” There’s going to be a ton of issues along the lines of: the touchpad doesn’t work properly on Ubuntu Insipid Iguana, or whatever the new version is, which is really due to Ubuntu distributing the wrong version of libinput, or something along those lines.
If I install arch linux on my laptop and sleep doesn’t work properly, but I know that somebody else has sleep working properly on Fedora 34, I can fix it.
This isn’t necessarily urgent; god forbid the framework people should stop making sure orders get out so they can organize the forum better (and I’m definitely not volunteering to be a Community Leader), but it might be worth doing eventually.
Thanks, and please make the fan replaceable
