Re: Odd fonts?

Possibly this is caused by the "font-awesome" package, loaded (or not) by css? However, 'xbps-query -Rs font' lists nearly 200 font-related packages - obviously including some font manipulation packages - but 100+ of these are actual fonts.

Re: Void Linux

OK. This may not be a reasonable test (for some value of reasonable). Tried it on VBox - 1 processor, 4Gb RAM; 2GB more than my Void-MATE install. As Void regularly updates kernel and zfs is built as a dkms module I waited until a kernel update was signalled by my Void-MATE install. time xbps-instal...
