How do I update?
Why can't I use pacman?
In v3, we phased out pacman (it's there, just shows an error about a read-only filesystem) in favor of
system. To install packages to the host, simply run
sudo system install <package>
What happens when I install the same package from multiple distributions? Would there be conflicts?
Can I use an app installed from a distribution on the base OS itself?
Indeed, any apps or CLI utils/binaries you install would be available instantaneously on the base OS itself, so for example, you could use a CLI tool installed in a container directly from the host's terminal, unlike other implementations such as Distrobox.
I installed blendOS on a VirtualBox VM. How do I install the Virtual Box Guest Additions?
You use the
sudo system install virtualbox-guest-utils
If you used a
v2 iso, install the Virtual Box Guest Additions with
sudo akshara set-custom-packages virtualbox-guest-utils.
If it's frozen on lockfile, run (in a new tab):
journalctl -xeu akshara -f to see progress.
I wanna dualboot!
Now you can! Just follow this guide (Appendix B).
