Desktop's all set up. I'm a little disappointed with the performance of mechanical disks though

Oh, is so nice. I bought a cheap 802.11ax/BT5.0 card to put in my laptop, and the device is so new that I needed a Linux 5.1+ kernel for the module to I just dropped a `boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_5_1;` into my NixOS configs, and now I have a 5.1 kernel. How likely is Linux support? I really want to buy it, but if there's plans for a Linux port, or availability via Proton on Steam, I'd rather wait for that. I'm also bit hesitant to buy via Epic's store, since they seem unwilling to bring their launcher to Linux.

Once my desktop's set up I'll be able to stream more reliably, since it has a bit more power than my other machines. Hopefully the sound is also nice on laptop has a very weird mic hum

Okay. Over the past few days I installed (a distribution of ) on two X230 and two T430 laptops (one for @squeakypancakes), and set up on my T430 and backup X230. All that's left is NixOS on my desktop/NAS, and configuring various services across the four systems to be interlinked

Apparently I'm able to fix laptops by installing coreboot

So now that @rummik has updated my bios ethernet works, I have crtl and fn swapped and IME is removed.

@rummik Also when we reset the bios the computer thought it was June 6th 2077.

Looks like my t430 is getting some upgrades a 2nd HDD/SSD and @rummik ported the #Skulls #Coreboot distribution to the t430 for us to use.

In case it wasn't enough that is declaratively configured, you can also test your configuration in a virtual machine by doing a `nixos-rebuild build-vm`

...I think I ran out of extra ThinkPad power adapters.

Look, if Linux can run on a toaster, you can play the Imperial March on a toaster
