    In two weeks, I'm gonna have to uninstall snapd again

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      I'm running the beta on a spare Thinkpad atm and giving snaps a try.

      They feel much improved since last I tried it years ago. Much faster startup times on everything. Proper theme support also. And a lot of software is available on the app center (still no flatpaks tho).

      jewbuntu, make sure you shop at Amazon goy

      Get with the times, grandpa. That was over 10 years ago.

        Startup times were not why I uninstalled snapd.

          What is your reasoning for not using snaps and even going as far as using Ubuntu but uninstalling snapd altogether?

          Genuinely curious.

            snaps:
            >are pigfat
            >use too much RAM
            >were silently replacing traditional apt packages
            >Auto update functionality is not controllable by user
            >Only canonical could host / build them (walled garden)
            I'm sure there were other reasons, it's been a while. Maybe they changed some things, but the initial approach turned me off on them.
            Just didn't see the need for them and since I haven't had any issues after uninstalling, just don't see the need to re-enable them.
            >use ubuntu but not snaps
            Nobody installs ubuntu because it has snapd.
            I've been using ubuntu from before snaps existed, it's stable and comfy, and I'm not going to change my OS just because the vendor is pushing a product I don't find useful.

            It was at one point true, which is why I stopped using it. That they've fixed it isn't a point in its favor, it's simply neutral.

            Didn't they delay the beta for a week _because_ of xz?

            Good points. However, aren't vendors in favor of using snaps and pushing their software as snaps (vs deb/flatpak)? Like Firefox, and now Thunderbird also

            No idea, if I need a semi-sandboxed application like that I use docker.
            If I wanted a truly sandboxed, separated application, then VM.
            snaps just aren't solving a problem I have.

            Snaps do not integrate well with Kubuntu and Lubuntu. They don't have a graphical snap updater, you have to update using the terminal or let the daemon do it automatically which can take several hours, which is a problem especially when you have a fresh install with a very outdated Firefox. Developers don't care about addressing it.

            That sucks. Isn't there a standalone snap store people can install where you can manage your snaps?

        Last I checked the only applications that anyone is actually going to use that are snapped are web browsers, which do actually benefit from the sandboxing. Anyway using the Mozilla-provided Firefox apt is explicitly supported by Canonical.

            Flatpaks is only for gui apps. Snaps is for gui apps, cli apps, parts of the base system (eg gnome), docker itself, complete build environments like dotnet, and possibly much more.

            DGMW flatpaks are nice, but snaps do so much more.

      Why is IQfy posting so much about Ubuntu recently? It was dead to IQfy from like 2019 to 2023.

      Ubuntu still remains one of the (if not the) most popular LInux distro's out there. It's tech therefore it's relevant for tech discussions, no matter how much people memehate on it.

      Say what you want about Canonical but they got a big piece of the market. Plus a lot of derivative distros are based off Ubuntu.

          I see some thread occasionally. But you're right it's mostly /fat/. Perhaps this is the result of it being a normie OS, and not for tech authusiasts like us? Same with /fwt/

    The beta works great for me so far. I've tried both 22.04 LTS and 23.10, but after install they consistently kept giving the "oops something went wrong" error popups because some service crashed.

    24.04 LTS Beta doesn't have that issue for me. Win.

    I had troubles getting Docker Desktop for Linux to work tho, despite Docker providing 24.04 support. AppArmor was being a b***h. And once that was fixed virtiofs refused to work. I just canned it and installed the Engine instead, which works like a charm.

        Upgrades from an existing system are available after the first point release (ie once 24.04.1 is out) with `do-release-upgrade`. And only from LTS to LTS and non-LTS to non-LTS.

        So you can't I think, unless you install the beta iso from scratch.

          Too much hassle. I only recently nearly recovered from dependency hell when I (don't ask why) tried to install Intel graphics drivers using an outdated guide on Intel's official website. I'll just wait, 22.04 is not that bad actually. I have the feeling everything runs much better with every new version. My first Linux was an old Fedora, can't remember which, it was 2004 or something. Then Ubuntu 5.10, they even shipped me 10 CDs for free to fricking Serbia) which I gave away to friends.

            Yeah fair. 22.04 is LTS and gets support for a few more years. More so if you enable Pro.

            Extended security and live kernel updates for 5 devices (running LTS) for free? Sign me the frick up. If you have a company and you throw some money against it you get 24/7 phone support also, among other things.

            Sure it phones home occasionally to check your license, but you shouldn't be using Ubuntu in the first place if you're worried about that stuff.

            Yeah, I even filed some bugs with their Android version (something about the sync not working when switching mobile data -> wifi).
