It's a fucking piece of shit. I booted into it to try Kerbal Space Program on it, because some have asaid it runs better there than on Windows (it's 64 bit, linux uses less resources).

I decided to try it instead of Debian for a while, just for fun. I hadn't booted into it for a while, so I figured, hey, I should update. Pacman -Syu. It'll be fine.

NOPE. It updated the kernal without updating the crypto package, so it thought everthing was curropot.

I fixed that, then it finished the update

Then it refused to boot.

Somehow it had removed Grub. Like, it was gone. I don't even know how that's possible, but Google reveals this has happened to others.

So I shoved a bootable USB into its fucking asshole and reinstalled Grub. 2. FML. I was holding out on GRUB 1 for so long, b/c grub 2 is fucking annoying. God forbid you want to add windows to it. custom_10 or some shit I don't remember.

Thankfully, past me had a brain, and was all, fuck yeah, you're gonna fuck up, so let's put windows 7 on one hard drive, and linux + XP on a SEPARATE drive. But make it so the linux drive is primary and is able to call the 7u drive. That way we haev 2 bootloaders. So since that linux install is fucked up beyond belief and is definitely getting replaced with good ol' Debian in the morning, I just yanked it out and the other drive works fina dn I'm back in 7 with no real loss.

I just wanetd to play KSP guys. Fuck you arch linux ....people who maintain compatiblity between packages. I even followed the rules - update the whol system at once. And it still fucking broke. Wtf. I also had to accept a pgp key from soem fuckig gmail account of one of the "trusted" maintainers. I bet it was hiiiiiiim that caused the permission fuck up.

God I should go to bed. Thaknyou for reading this essay by thyoph tohp toh tphotoh toph

During the Debian install, there is an option for installing "none" as your kernel. That's a ballsy move. I guess if you wanted to stick your own in and literally couldn't spare the drive space.

That's what you get for not simply using Windows.
