(dont roast me on how bad my computer in general is... i really only use it for school, development & low spec games hah)



Is there anyway i can use void's init system instead of systemd?
My trouble is, when i use void under bedrock i don't have wifi.
(This is because i need my drivers installed, rtl8821ce.)
(Problem is, i can't seem to install them, as when i try to use threading via mobile phone and usb it just doesn't work.)
(I have been able to get rtl8821ce running on the 5.7.0 linux kernel.)


Is this a well explained post? Please let me know.
Ask for anything else & i will provide, i'd love to get this happening. <3

What network hardware do you have?

Code:
lspci -k
You want arch or manjaro without systemd. You can use another init system. But you'll have to build a lot of your software yourself, after you modify it.

I saw you poke your head in the IRC room, but you kept leaving before anyone could respond.

Sure, install a Void Linux stratum (e.g. `brl fetch void`). If it doesn't come with an init, install one with its package manager. Reboot. At Bedrock's init selection menu, select Void's init. Assuming that goes well, you can set it as the default init in /bedrock/etc/bedrock.conf's [init] section.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by Void under Bedrock.

Are you saying you can get wifi working on a normal Void install, but when you hijack it you lose wifi?

Did you hijack a distro that successfully provided you internet access? If so, just use its components - its kernel, its init, etc - to get internet going again. Once you're there, do whatever setup you need to do to get rtl8821ce running against whatever component you're swapping out.

Then go ahead and use that kernel.

I'm not sure I properly understood you, but hopefully you'll see where I'm misunderstanding things from my response and be able to clarify things.
