Every year, I make a point to see how various esoteric distros are doing such as this one, and I am not too surprised to see not much has changed here.
I had to use web archive to grab the necessary iso, because the link the website hosts was down.. thank goodness it was a recent version.
So then I tried to actually install it, only I couldn't, because it doesn't think the remote repos exist. So I tried again the next day and it worked, whew. Except..
NTP seems to be broken, portsnap is not working either. So I gave up, I found another machine to use that would work with one of the ISOs that was actually available for download and reinstalled it, same issues.
So then I tried to install nano... Only, it wants me to manually install a bazillion dependencies, which it wants me to install individually because mports install does not want to accept multipl epackages as arguments..
Now for x... which, was my understanding that midnight bsd came with a neat gnustep based DE. It does not, anyways, I installed x, dbus, hal and enabled them. But, X doesn't start. No devices found, all I can say is
What the fuck is this broken vaporware? WHY are people still working on this when it is still like this in the year of 2020
Scratching this off my list of operating systems to check on and evaluate yearly, I just cannot take this shit seriously at all. It is almost as big a joke as furybsd
