What do you prefer to selfhost?
  • I don't have experience with them. I have been using linode for a few years now and love it!

  • A bunch of people recommend dozzle in this thread.. I've been using Dockge. I wonder how they compare. I'll have to check that out later.

  • wifi Temperature gauges?
  • SMLIGHT SLZB-06/M/P7

    I've tried a few other ZigBee Coordinators and this is the only one I can really suggest. Home Assistant even has their own that used to be called Sky Connect. I was having things randomly drop off my network with Sky Connect.

    Get the one that has experimental Matter-over-thread support for future-proofing. You can even get it with POE support if that's helpful for you.

  • Homelab Organization
  • I use obsidian for my notes/wiki. I use the git plugin to backup/sync my notes. I self-host forgejo as my gut server. Works great!

    Caddy is my favorite reverse-proxy. The setup is just a config file.

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Sounds like a guide to me ☺️

    The registry is one of the reasons I was thinking I would need separate prefixes that I can copy. But, I also understand that games that actually use the registry are few and far between. If I actually come across one that needs registry edits I can just pack that differently.

  • You have been beyond helpful. Thank you so much!

  • Does it install winetricks and wine? Or is it up to you to install that? I believe the steam comes with it pre-installed though, so it''s probably not necessary.

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Wow. You wrote a guide on it. I'll try to find time to read it tonight! I do have a question, what if a game makes use of the windows registry? Would that change the prefix?

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Very informative thanks! Do you have a specific article that you'd suggest on bottles? Or does it have a decent wiki?

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • I wonder if it would then be easy to backup the drm-free games to copy elsewhere..?

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Not at all what I was asking. But, okay.

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Cool, thank you! A lot of games on ProtonDB list specific versions of proton that work best for different games. That's why I asked. But, I could just add a file in the root of the prefix with the version that worked (for troubleshooting purposes).

    Do you have any preference for Lutris, bottles, vanilla proton?

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • Makes sense. I wouldn't want to have all of my games in one wine prefix. I would like to keep them separate like steam/proton does. From looking it up, it seems the issue is that there is a lot of duplicate data that would need to be deduplicated. Steam supposedly does symlinks to solve this. But, if the symlinks points to /home/user/ as the base then that would break on /home/deck.

    If you have any experience with Lutris/bottles. Do they do separate wine prefixes? If so, how do they handle it?

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.
  • What about graphics drivers? What if the desktop has an Nvidia GPU and the steam deck is AMD. Would that even matter?

  • Custom Linux Distribution just for Gaming
  • Ah. Different builds for different versions. Makes sense

  • How can I transfer non-steam games between Linux devices.

    I have a desktop and a steam deck. I would like to setup some old games I have on disc on the desktop. Then compress them and decompress on my Steam Deck without doing the full install again. I understand that with wine/proton prefixes they should be installed to a "fake c:/ windows hierarchy" can I just compress that and copy to a different Linux machine? Does it save which proton version was used? If I use something like Lutris or bottles can I import into them?

    dockge | self-hosted docker compose.yaml stack-oriented manager

    GitHub - louislam/dockge: A fancy, easy-to-use and reactive self-hosted docker compose.yaml stack-oriented manager

    I just found this last night and installed it for testing. It's just a web-gui to help manage compose.yml files. It's not fully featured yet, but I believe it's got some real potential to be a regular stay for me.

    What would you use to remotely support a computer with "LAN" access?

    I have a few family members that I help support. For instance, I installed Linux Mint on my grandmother's PC. She doesn't know any different and my young cousin doesn't understand it so he finally stopped giving it viruses. I used to use TeamViewer to take over her PC when she needed support but I got my account banned because they believed I was using it commercially. Oh well!

    I have Tailscale installed on the computers. This gives me SSH access. What would you suggest? RDP? Something else?

    Matthew Croughan - Use flake.nix, not Dockerfile - MCH2022

    I agree that dockerfile's are not very reproducible. But honestly, that's not how most people use it. I believe most people just pull the already built image which is very reproducible. Anyways, I found this video interesting and thought I'd share it and get your guys thoughts.

    NixOS Gaming Setup and Comparison

    I hope I am not coming across as spamming as this is my third post to this community today. I won't do another today but I just thought this was interesting. I watch most of CTT's videos and this was one from a live stream where he went into gaming on NixOS.

    NixOS | For Gaming?

    I was looking up gaming on NixOS and I came across this video. I have never seen this creator before but the video was interesting. So, I thought I'd share.

    Is there a place that people share their configs?

    I know you can go github and just do a file search. I am just wondering if there is a place where people share and give descriptions. I would like to see what is out there in terms of "gaming configurations". But, I also would love to just read some random configs that can help me learn new concepts of what can be done in the config.
