The first part of my series on using the OpenRC init system! In this video, we go over the basics of what OpenRC is, and how to use it to do things like start, stop, and restart daemons.

In this video, I show my process for manually upgrading the Linux kernel to a new version on Gentoo. This can be a pretty daunting task to a newcomer, but don't worry, it isn't scary at all!NOTE: I recorded this video some time ago, but only recently finished it off and decided to upload it. Therefor, the version of the kernel that I am upgrading to is outdated by this point. The advice and directions remains the same, however!

In this video (potentially the first in a series?), I go over a weird relic I found while exploring the main Gentoo package repository: dog, which claims in its man page to be better than cat. Can this fairly aged terminal program live up to its own hype?

Spoiler alert: no. But dog has some fairly cool ideas that I felt were at least worth a quick explanatory video!

PLEASE WATCH THE PREVIOUS VIDEO ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQwPOC1tT7Q ) BEFORE WATCHING THIS ONE, AS THESE TUTORIALS BUILD ON EACH OTHER!

How to use Python to make scripts for the Krita drawing application! This video is the fifth in a series of tutorials on using Python to extend Krita. In this video (the last, for now), I cover creating manuals and customizable keyboard shortcuts for your Python plugins.

To follow along, make sure Krita is updated to the latest version (at least 4.0).

NOTE: This is NOT a general introduction to the Python programming language! That would be outside of the scope of this tutorial. If you would like to learn Python, there are plenty of excellent resources on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet. A good example is the official Python documentation: https://docs.python.org/3/

(For those of you who are more interested in my Gentoo Linux material, don't fear! I will continue to produce Gentoo videos along with other things like this.)

[Another delayed upload. Apologies!]

You can run scripts after an emerge --sync (or emaint-sync) using the built-in features of portage, namely the /etc/portage directories postsync.d and repo.postsync.d. This video addresses the important points of these locations and shows you how to use them.

[Apologies to my BitChute viewers. This video was uploaded to YouTube last week, but for some reason it was never automatically mirrored over here. I was hesitant to upload it myself until now, since I didn't want the mirroring to "kick in" and put a second copy of the video on my channel. The mirroring seems to be working again, as my newest Krita+Python video ( https://www.bitchute.com/video/BCpubcifIfI/ ) has appeared on BitChute just fine. Not sure what went wrong with this one! I have chosen manually uploaded it now.]

The ebuild command is a low-level interface to portage, Gentoo's package manager. Its main use is as a debug aid when writing custom ebuilds. In this video, I cover the basics of using this very important Gentoo command.

On a quest to make installing Gentoo (and actually using it) less of a meme.

I do lots of research and try very hard to be accurate in my videos. If I say something that is incorrect or misleading, please tell me and I will either correct it in the video or in the description/comments. This stuff is hard enough to learn without me spreading misinformation around, after all!
