I can’t add the repo to swupd, the error :
curl -download failed: response (503) ‘https://clearfraction.herokuapp.com/update/version/format30/latest

Fixed✌️
500 hours per month isn’t enough now to keep the repository up, added more fuel.

I got this error

Searching for bundle vscodium in the 3rd-party repositories...
Error: Failed to verify certificate: certificate has expired
Error: Unable to validate the certificate /opt/3rd-party/bundles/clearfraction/usr/share/clear/update-ca/Swupd_Root.pem

The certificate expired and manual update required.

-n should work as temporal workaround, for example swupd 3rd-party bundle-add -n vscodium.

but not working with flufychat.

sudo swupd 3rd-party bundle-add fluffychat -n

Works for me.

sudo swupd 3rd-party bundle-add fluffychat -n

Wrong, should be

bundle-add -n fluffychat

is there an alternative to OBS? I can’t record videos using gnome screenshot, and OBS got a core dumped error.

and OBS got a core dumped error

Open the bugreport.

alternative to OBS?

sudo ffmpeg -device /dev/dri/card0 -f kmsgrab -i - -vf 'hwmap=derive_device=vaapi,scale_vaapi=w=1920:h=1080:format=nv12' -c:v h264_vaapi -qp 24 output.mp4

This ffmpeg docs example works, tested several months ago.

To OBS’s Github or Clear Linux’s Github?

I’ve tried before, but can’t record the mouse pointer.

Both if you’re not sure. Will be great to test the issue on another distribution too.
