I finally got around to setting up the e-mails correctly for my instance ( and noticed that the e-mail deliver-ability is awful, as I get heavily penalized by spam filters for having an .xyz domain. I would not be surprised if search engines penalize this too. It is not a simple task to change a domain name for an instance without breaking federation, so once you have a federating instance you are are stuck with that domain name. I would not recommend picking an .xyz domain for your instances unless you intend it to be a private instance forever. If possible, try to go for a .com, or some other more standard TLD!

Split Linux 6.1.4 released!
`26bd661e10921fd2b9d17a7a8da1571067948424f985c08922e53559c5609566` See [**Release history**]( for details. *From now onwards, releases are versioned to the kernel version they ship.*

Atomic swaps between BTC and XMR have been one of the most discussed and anticipated developments in the field for quite some time. While Farcaster is still working on the implementation of their protocol, the COMIT team has already delivered an MVP. Trustless cross-chain swaps are becoming a tangible reality. However, for atomic swaps to gain widespread and adopted, the user experience needs to be drastically improved. People shouldn't have to manually type commands into a terminal or understand the protocol at a technical level to participate. That's the problem this project aims to solve. *Make atomic swaps accessible to all!*

Mankind is being enslaved by non-human forces who are technologically, psychically, and dimensionally superior to us (but not necessarily spiritually, and therein lies our freedom). They consist of multiple factions, spanning multiple dimensions and locations in spacetime, all here to take a slice of the human pie. Their ultimate goal is to assimilate us into their fascist empire and parasitically exploit us for our biological, etheric, and physical resources. Through covert manipulation and hyperdimensional tricks that employ time travel, they have secretly manipulated and exploited humanity in every way conceivable since the birth of our race, and even our origins are suspect and bear the signs of genetic engineering. We are now seeing their plans overtly manifest with the abduction and hybrid breeding program, and their imminent portrayal as saviors to a human race gone mad with world conflict. If the world accepts them as saviors, individual freedom as we know it will become snuffed like a blown candle, leaving only darkness.

This is a summary of the book [Gnosis: Alchemy, Grail, Ark, and the Demiurge]( The book goes much deeper with 365 pages, numerous excerpts, 60 illustrations, and a 12 page index. But this summary gives you the critical take-aways. 1. Corruption of the Demiurge 2. The Philosopher’s Stone 3. The Holy Grail 4. Ark of the Covenant 5. Mosaic Abuse of Demiurgic Technology 6. Nordic Aliens and the Grail Race 7. Dawn of a New Cosmic Day 8. Polar Mythology 9. The End

Few hosting companies offer Void Linux on their Virtual Private Servers. Apart from being handy for general bare-metal installations, the playbooks should simplify the switch from other pre-installed Linux distributions. I created them in an effort to prepare moving Split Linux away from Big Tech infrastructure and services. Middle to long-term plans and considerations are: * Community communication on individual Fediverse instance * Protect users who visit and download Split Linux from generalized monitoring * Simplify setup of [Homemade VPN]('s * Create Split Linux identities (containers) from Void Linux ROOTFS (playbook LXC variant)

Our update to Monero 0.18 has been [accepted](, meaning that Void and Split Linux users alike can again rely on their package manager to obtain the version compatible with the current Monero network. Split's default environment, _The Beast Desktop_, comes with Monero CLI pre-installed. Additionally, in Split Linux only, the miner package has been updated. Users locking their screens with `Shift+Pause` will have their machine mine Monero, helping safeguard the network, no additional steps required. Details in the handbook: <>

How does this login thing work?
*(OP u/Barp_the_Wire)* I run Void on all my machines and love its simplicity and ease of use. Today I discovered Split and I must say I am very impressed by all the work you have put into it. Wanting to learn how it works I mounted the ISO file locally and dug through create_void_container but could not find where the magic happens that makes a user who logs in to land inside a container rather than the host machine. Does just copying the content of /etc/shadow do some magic here? Any hint would be very welcome, thanks in advance.

What is Beast?
I added a bit of history about Beast and the motivation and intention behind creating it. The section shall help understand why it is designed the way it is and that it is the way it should be. You can read it on the official website on the page titled [The Beast Desktop Environment](

DistroWatch reviewed Split Linux and Beast
Jesse Smith dove into Split Linux to create this excellent DistroWatch feature story. It manages to explain the concept of the decoy OS in a simple manner and even has some screenshots of the Beast desktop environment which was recently added to our repositories as an optional package for Void Linux containers. Articles like this are great motivation to move forward and provide valuable feedback. Scripting the initial hard drive setup and moving the Tor service output away from tty0 can easily be implemented and will greatly improve user experience. Thanks to the suggestions both will now be made a priority. Thank you Jesse.

Referred here from VOID linux wondering about this. What type of threat is this going to mitigate? What is the purpose of the decoy OS? Hoping someone can shed some light on the
*(OP u/Regular_Ride2342)* Currently trying to determine best way to secure VOID on a machine for accessing the internet as well as having windows functionality offline for media creation.

Hello! Hoping for information about this distro!
*(OP u/the-new-guy176)* I’m somewhat of a Linux novice (used it for year and a half) and this distro seems very interesting. I was hoping to get some more information on it, your website is nice, but not exactly containing the info I was looking for.
