My first mistake was trying to install everything with UEFI still enabled. So, having to try that again! 🤦♂️
I suspect my pet peeve of having to download a firmware file to make my already installed Intel WiFi drivers work is going to recur, but thankfully this time I have a USB-C Ethernet adapter that seems to be working.
Success! Turns out I could fix Wi-fi by downloading & installing a deb package instead of spending an hour hunting down a file I need to put in a very specific location. I could enable the “non-free” repo to keep it updated, but ugh... effort.
As it’s nearly 9:30pm now I’m going to leave my completely vanilla installation until after I’ve had a good night’s sleep and have the enthusiasm to make everything work the way I want it to. ✨
It may have taken the whole weekend (and still isn't finished) but it taught me a huge amount about Glimpse's dependencies and how they're built.
Even if I'm the only one who ends up using the Vagrant/Ansible stuff, it'll help a lot when I finally spin up a Jenkins build server. So I'd call it a success 👍
Also next weekend I'm taking a break from this project 😂
This server runs Florence, a fork of the Mastodon project.
