current status: questioning everything i was raised to believe, feeling extremely unnerved

@rabcyr @velartrill And then there’s the thing where we both have a low tolerance for stress and end up staying at home for days without getting anything done, which is problematic because processing of the residence permit may take a long time.

@rabcyr @velartrill The worrying part about marrying in Germany is not the marriage itself but getting a residence permit afterwards.

German government is (rightfully) very skeptical of such couples because this is a common pattern for fake marriages. In addition to all the required documentation, there may be individual questioning where they may not issue a permit if our answers differ too much or we know too little about each other and our families, etc.

Also, while US citizens are not required to get a non-Schengen visa before entering the country, it’s entirely possible that such an attempt gets rejected.

So, basically the same shit as in the US, except slightly less bureaucratic, intimidating and costly.

If I marry here in the US, however, all we’re going to need is our marriage certificate + apostille + translation by a sworn translator (the latter can be done in Germany for a small fee).

@kaniini Ah, right, that distro has always been very… I don’t actually have euphemisms for their packaging practices, but let’s leave it at “literally worse than Debian”.

@kaniini RPM scriptlets are typically shell scripts (I have never seen any written in Lua) and may run at the earliest opportunity OR at the end of a transaction. For instance, openSUSE uses this to rebuild kernel modules and initramfs at the end of a transaction.

@velartrill @kaniini Yeah alsamixer settings you get depend on what the driver/chip exposes in terms of controls.

A lot of consumer chips lack the “stereo mix” option for copyright reasons, afaik…

@kaniini Can you explain how? I don’t know how they work in apk — and RPM has different types of triggers (package and file/directory triggers).

@kaniini Though RPM-based distros have been using triggers for a very long time (at least since 2002, probably longer ago).
