<Apteryx>Thank for the suggestions. I'll visit those.
<Apteryx>Is it really useful to fill a new hard drive with random data prior to encrypt it with LUKS? I guess if it contains only zeros you could see which sectors have been written to. And it might allow you to guess with better chance about where the secret key might be written to?
<jmd>We should make a service so that this can be done in /etc/config.scm
<joshuaBPMan_>oh, I thought loadkeys had to load in a file that specified all of the keys. I didn't realize you could load a keymap file that only specified 1 or two keys.
<joshuaBPMan_>jmd: can you give me a general idea of what would need to be done to make this into a service? Have to specify a shepherd service, then config.scm would have a variable that specifies which keys to change. Then the service would change it.
<jmd>I don't think you would use shepherd for that.
<joshuaBPMan_>buenouanq: Yup. I can login into a virtual console as my non-root user.
<buenouanq>how did you install X? supported way is as a service in your os config
<efraim>Wikipedia says CentOS 7, trisquel 8 isn't out yet
<joshuaBPMan_>buenouanq: I dual boot guixSD and Parabola. Both distros share the same /home partition. Both have the same uid (I think it's what it's called). So both recognize that each directory under ~/home/joshua is owned by the user "joshua".
