One of the main purposes of this server is to provide a Minecraft server to my friends and me. There are quite a few mods active to enhance gameplay and performance. The server itself is PaperMC – the next generation Minecraft server offering massively improved performance while staying compatible with Bukkit & Spigot plugins. The list of active mods includes (click for info):
As Chaotic-AUR is the repository (kind of an appstore for Linux distributions) of Garuda Linux and one of the user repositories with the most (and most useful) packages out there I decided to provide another mirror for it. Especially a massive increase of web traffic on the main server made this necessary! The repo can be accessed at chaotic.dr460nf1r3.me and can be found in the chaotic-mirrorlist package as well.
Chaotic-AUR provides everyday applications such as Spotify, GitHub Desktop, Visual Studio Code Insiders, a variety of Linux-tkg kernels and lots of other software which is not available in the official Arch repositories. The recent loss of the 380GB RAM main cluster made changes necessary – thats how our Garuda builder became one of three clusters to build individual packages for Chaotic-AUR. About 800 of the previous over 4000 packages have been recovered until now and building packages is automated again! 🙂
People gaming together need a platform to chat on with each other – this is why this Teamspeak server was setup. Even though I would have loved to use Mumble (its open source, low latency & provides high quality audio!) Teamspeak was chosen as that is what most of my friends used already in the past. Setting it up is easy and just “works” for this purpose.
As there are 32 users allowed to use the server simultaneously in the non-paid version there is obviously still a lot of space available 😀
