I managed to put together a package.yml that builds for lgogdownloader, a dependency for games nebula. Figure I may as well finish the job and do Nebula as well. I'll be submitting the patches for lgogdownloader and a couple dependencies after making sure it works.

Can you try removing the sddm workaround and installing the xrdb package. Looking at the code, we need that for it to work (and confirmed fonts changed when DPI was set to 120).

Shadow53 added a comment to T5701: Installing Nvidia Drivers causes black screen on Plasma Testing.

I've discovered that replacing sddm with lightdm (and lightdm-gtk-greeter - see T5712) and enabling the service causes the X session to actually load with the Nvidia drivers. There is an odd side effect of text seeming smaller than usual, but I'm going to call that a side effect of using LightDM instead of SDDM.

@Justin I have tested it certbot --help, which normally caused crashes due to missing dependencies, and at time of submission showed the help text. I have not used it to request and certificate and am running into issues with doing so - nothing to do with certbot, which is working fine so far, but rather GitLab pages isn't displaying the challenge text. I'm assuming certbot does its job, though, given how often it errored out before.

@iachopolo It's probably part of how it detects the Windows bootloader.

I personally doubt it's related to this issue, but others will know better than me.

The reason I had it here was because the error message was that python-requests required the package to be installed, while other times it would say that certbot required a certain package. My guess is that python-ndg-httpsclient is an optional dependency of python-requests. I will do as you suggest though and add the dependency to certbot instead.

Okay, well I have some patches to add for various dependencies for certbot.

I'm not sure I follow the logic: the network connection fails on some networks but not others, therefore the issue has nothing to do with the network? Surely if that were the case you would see the connection drop on all networks? I agree that it's likely a driver issue, but I think the network itself plays a role as well.

For my own personal use case, it would be to generate certificates for my websites on the shared server I pay for. They do not have integrated support for Let's Encrypt so I have to run the client from my personal machine and upload the generated certificate to the server. I could download the standalone version, but having it available as a system package means automatically getting updates - updates to Certbot seem to occur about once every two weeks.

I'm assuming @baimafeima is talking about certificate generation in particular, which I would also like to see. The official client is CertBot, but given that the Solus Devs like Go, there is also acmetool (these are also two of the tools mentioned in the above openSUSE article). Certbot is in multiple distributions' core repositories while acmetool has third party repos or build scripts available for multiple distros and is packaged in the Void Linux core repos.

Last time an issue like this happened for me (on another distro), I had done something to make my user's home directory inaccessible. This could be done by deleting the folder, a separate /home partition not being mounted, bad permissions settings, etc. Is it possible anything like that could be the problem?
