Services from lunar-linux.org may be disrupted
(original message by Auke (sofar) on the maillinglist)
as some of you know our current hosting solution will no longer be available to us in the future. We’re working on a temporary solution to prevent most services from becoming unavailable altogether, but we can’t foresee any issues with migration. So, please be prepared for any [...]
new 32bit chroot image
Just updated and uploaded a new image for use as a 32bit chroot – This is especially for those interesting, who want to use Lunar Linux in 64bit and need to run 32bit apps as well. Lunar Linux is not multilib and will, as it looks like, never be multilib (but never say never, so). [...]
Future use of MAINTAINER= in DETAILS

Systemd & Connman
I wrote about a possible switch of the init-system in Lunar Linux some time ago. Today I’ll show you how to replace your init-system with systemd and connman in Lunar Linux.
Updating old lunar installations: Getting rid of hal
As hal is deprecated now, most new-installations don’t have it anymore. My netbook still has it, so how do I get rid of it easily? Read on, if you want to know..
cache database for moonbase
We’ve had a few talks regarding the use of a database to speed up some processing/end-user-tools. Let’s say “lvu search”, the module searching when issuing “lunar renew” (which should be module_expired() and run_details()). Also things like “lvu depends”. However. Lunar’s package management is as good as it is, because it’s easy. All you need to [...]
