@claudiom this is why I love Slackware man... no dependency management! There's a `--nodeps` option for `rpm` but idk if that'll leave `dnf` in a broken state (kinda like how it is now apparently)
@claudiom dumb question... did you try just downloading the RPMs and installing them manually with `rpm`?
@claudiom I had issues with `yum` in RHEL 8 (basically `dnf` from Fedora 28), it would spit out errors about a dependency... I had the dependency (I believe it was containerd for docker-ce) installed but it was an older version than was required. The newer version was available tho in the repo but dnf just wouldn't install it first so I manually did `yum install <pkg name & version>` to get it to install the new version then I was able to install docker-ce finally
@JoYo divide & conquer
@russsaidwords Thanks! Might look into the DigitalOcean one-click install... By day I work largely with customers who use cloud platforms like AWS or Azure but never actually used it myself (been using a home server for everything)
@fireglow Honestly I don't know if I'd have time, I still have to reinstall OpenBSD on my firewall (going to switch to SSDs and check out FFS2) and upgrade my home server along with other things I've been neglecting
@devrandom There's also bpduguard
@JoYo I would normally say if it's a solitary activity outdoors and you mask up then it's reasonable risk but this wasn't Reston, VA... Guidance for NYC seems pretty clear that it's "stay home" based on a web search I just did. Rules is rules
@JoYo I thought the birdwatcher showed an impressive amount of patience and restraint, I read this quote from him and re-watched the video and he really just stands by silently for a lot of it: “I didn’t want to kowtow to that, I didn’t want to give it any power,” he added. “I am pretty adamant about not being a participant in my own dehumanization.” I found it stoic, I don't think I could keep my cool like (while also standing one's ground)
@russsaidwords i get emails from Comcast Xfinity (already a Comcast Business customer) but everytime i try the unsubscribe link i get an error page returned. I suspect this is broken on purpose just to drive me to madness
I like networks, Unix, open-source and cats
