@JB iirc yaourt effectively wraps pacman, so you can use it everywhere you would use pacman and it'll get official packages when they exist.
As far as installing everything from the AUR, it's not vetted like the official repositories so it's kind of like sideloading an untrusted app store onto your phone. Realistically you probably won't run into any issues, but theoretically code from the AUR can't be trusted.
@JB Nice! Arch was always my favorite. The wiki is one of the best Linux resources out there, even if you're not running Arch.
@JB Let me know if you need any help! Been a minute since I've run with a window manager but I can assist with command line stuff.
100% agree, but having a hard time comparing to email, which doesn't offer this and still got along fine
@mastohost Is the bug tracked somewhere on the Mastodon project? If the maintainer(s) know about it, maybe they could help with a fix for 2.4.x boxes.
Even if the fix is to auto-reject requests from old instances that could cause this bug, at least then you wouldn't have to manually keep checking if they've upgraded yet.
@mastohost No prob at all!
@mastohost Okay great, thanks for explaining :D
@mastohost Sorry not nameserver, server.
@mastohost Okay, done! Will the disadvantage of having just one be that if that nameserver goes down, there's no backup?
