Void Linux is one of my go to distros, but it’s another OS that doesn’t get as much love as it deserves, and I feel that many Linux users could be missing out on a great experience.
In this video I run through a basic installation using the XFCE desktop and then move on to discuss package management, with a particular focus on using the Void packages source tree.
I demonstrate a few simple examples including patching libXft for colour emojis using Void packages.
I really hope you enjoy using this distro as much as me and at least give it a spin to see for yourself why I’m so impressed.
I hope you enjoy the video 🙂
