Running atom on wsl
Don’t use atom on WSL, it is way too laggy.
Original post on 2018-9-6:
When I tried to run atom on WSL, I get the following error:
/usr/sbin/atom: line 57: 67 Aborted (core dumped) nohup "$ATOM_PATH" --executed-from="$(pwd)" --pid=$$ "$@" > "$ATOM_HOME/nohup.out" 2>&1 FATAL: error reading `/proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled' in libgcrypt: Invalid argument
The problem here is that WSL has no
/proc/sys/crypto directory. So we need to disable fips manually, using:
echo 0 > /etc/gcrypt/fips_enabled
