lack of systemd prevents me from using it on anything other than single board computers like raspberry pis. The developer is a smart guy and xbps is great to use but I just can't take it seriously if it doesn't have things like systemd and selinux/apparmor.

>>
>>63735122
are you this >>63734247 guy? if yes, you are retarded calling void snowflake while using gentoo, and the argument was not 'void vs gentoo'.

I cannot give you 3 reasons to use void over gentoo, in fact, I have been wanting to try to install gentoo for a while, and I respect the meme, however void is not a snowflake distro.

It is as easy to install as debian, you literally don't need to enter 1 command the whole install, it is very lightweight, comes with very few packages, it is rolling release for those who need it, no systemd for those who don't want it. It is pretty much an un-autistic arch.

Void really is a meme, and I fell for it. It nearly forces you to use GRUB (which doesn't work because I don't use "muh UEFI") and provides no support for installing other bootloaders.

As if that bullshit wasn't bad enough, Even after spending several days, I couldn't get ALSA nor PulseAudio to work correctly on Void. I was stuck with half-working audio. I abandoned it for Gentoo, and audio literally worked flawlessly out of the box after I emerged ALSA. I also got actual instructions for installing a bootloader that worked with system. Don't fall for the Void meme, install Gentoo, it just werks.

>>63732212
You only consider it the best distro because few people use it. Be careful, with this rate of shilling you may be forced to find a less mainstream distro soon.

I actually have Void installed on my Raspberry Pi 2; it had rock solid stability and it's probably the only distro worth using on it. Probably great as a server OS but I can't see any reason to use it on desktop/laptop.

I really want to use Void and I did for a while (loved it too) but I switched to Ubuntu because I want an actual OS with good graphical configuration and OOTB DE from the bottom up. I use i3 but i3 alone for a modern multimedia tower is too bare, I want to boot up GNOME when my bluetooth stops working and use an actual bluetooth settings panel instead of the fuck-up that is blueman.

just install it manually like arch and use other bootloader

works for me, propably your fault

>I want to boot up GNOME when my bluetooth stops working and use an actual bluetooth settings panel instead of the fuck-up that is blueman.
Not trying to be condescending when I say this, but you can use any program from a DE outside that DE as long as it is still installed. For example, it's somewhat common to use xfce4-screenshooter on openbox and i3. Here's what you do:
>start gnome
>open the program(s) you want to be able to find on i3
>run 'xprop | grep -i class' in a terminal
>click on the program
>it should output the name of the program
brad@kazuki:~/ > xprop | grep -i class
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "urxvt", "URxvt"
brad@kazuki:~/ > xprop | grep -i class
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "gl", "mpv"

Here's an example of the output. I clicked on urxvt and then mpv. You probably just want something like gnome-settings or something, but best to find out the exact name. From there, you can just launch it with dmenu/rofi/any terminal emulator.

Getting used to something like i3 is basically learning which specific actual programs you need and use so you can launch them without digging through menus.
>>
>>63745223
It's what Arch should've been. It's minimal, has no systemd, uses libressl instead of openssl (you'd normally have to compile all relevant programs to have libressl, but all void binaries have been compiled that way for you), has its own really good package manager, and it's surprisingly stable. I'm not one to perpetuate the Arch instability meme, but I don't even really have anything to nitpick with Void in regards to stability.
>>
>>63746385
I learned of both from the same person. I would say Void is much more usable.
