This week in KISS (#3)
Another quiet week.
I spent time working on my password manager pash rewriting it in POSIX shell.
I’ve also started work on a fork of iwd (called eiwd) which works without
dbus. You can read more about it below.
A big thank you to everyone using and contributing to KISS!
- EIWD version 0.1.0 released
- Rust and Firefox now build on powerpc64le
- Qt5 is now in testing
- Official Repositories
EIWD version 0.1.0 released
This is the first release of my fork of
iwd with the
dbus dependency removed.
So far, all
dbus code has been removed from the daemon and it is functional solely through its network configuration files.
A simple utility has been added to aid in the creation of the network config files called
iwd_passphrase. This works similarly to
wpa_passphrase, automating the process.
The next steps are to write a client utilizing a different IPC mechanism. I haven’t yet decided what kind of IPC I’ll implement, any suggestions are welcome.
Until then, I’m really enjoying
iwd. I’m using it additionally as my DHCP client and it connects to networks a lot faster than
For KISS users,
eiwd is available in the repositories and its current usage is similar to that of
Rust and Firefox now build on powerpc64le
Rust and Firefox now build on powerpc64le leaving only a small handful of packages with issues.
This is thanks to the continued work by jdavies-dev!
Qt5 is now in testing
qt5 base has been added to the testing repository.
I hope to soon tackle the beast that is
qtwebengine and open up the possibilities for additional browsers (other than Firefox) on KISS.
