|bb|hcb: old Queenslander house converted to 7 units. we have shared WiFi supplied by the landlady. So currently I'm using whatever the WiFi router is using. I no longer have the admin password for it, since they switched up to FTTC, so I can't probe deeper. I'm currently building my Chimaera installing script, I'll switch back to my own DNS.
|Though the point was that there was buggy behavior, and I have now put in a work around, since it's not MY buggy behavior.
|Sounds like it is the WiFi router's DNS and that it is broken... Should be easy to avoid it
|Debian still having trouble with merged /usr : https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/890219/79e54e3aab20bd87/
|We are still un-merged, right?
|they're expecting to complete the transition with debian 13 (trixie) after bookworm.
|IMO usr-merged is loss of valuable resources and introducing self created problems for no gain
|BTW. one of my laptops was installed with bullseye and immediately converted to chimaera, so I have a usr-merged Devuan chimaera and that didn't byte me yet ;) but still I see no point behind this change - it is useless work, generating extra heat and contributing to the global warming :P
|The impact for Devuan is that there is no choice but to follow Debian with that change, the alternative would mean forking and/or rebuilding everything
|The $PATH does not care if /bin | /sbin | /lib is symlink or not
