asciilifeform warned loong ago that the days of lin. kernel being buildable on sane gcc are numbered
verisimilitude: What's insane about the newer GCC versions again?
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: see logs.
signpost has a kernel preserved in amber that builds on 4.9.4
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: see e.g.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2017-06-02 asciilifeform: on top of this, gcc5 happily removes , e.g., memset
dulapbot: (trilema) 2019-01-19 asciilifeform: the gcc5+ gnomes, occupy selves with cranking out 'mandatory' kludges for intelism; removing backend support for vintage, marginally-sane archs (alpha, hitachi, etc); gluing-with-broken-glass various incompatibilities to prevent coad developed under 5+ from building under 4.x; inserting 'optimizations' that snake around naive cprogrammer attempts at bounds-constraint; and so forth.
asciilifeform: not to mention various additional boobytraps against static linking
verisimilitude: I don't see how the snaking around is bad.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: do you understand how 'redundant' memset is used ?
verisimilitude: I referred to ``inserting 'optimizations' that snake around naive cprogrammer attempts at bounds-constraint''.
verisimilitude: I see so many C language programmers boast about their magic spells, but then they cry when they didn't actually know what they were doing.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: gcc5 will arbitrarily decide that bounds checks against exploitable overflow, memset to wipe secrets from process memory, etc. 'redundant' and silently remove.
asciilifeform: all of this not least bit 'accidental', but from nsa marching orders given to the muppets.
asciilifeform: there's an identifiable transition point in all of these opensores monstrosities where went from simply shoddy to actively wrecker-engineered. for gcc, that point was v. 5.
signpost: verisimilitude: resist the urge to convince yourself you're very smart for memorizing solutions to increasingly elaborate submission games imposed upon you by your owners. before you know it, you'll be chanting BTFD like mats here.
signpost: "buy the fucking dip"
verisimilitude: I already have, signpost.
asciilifeform: whatever happrnd to the ancient wisdom of 'dun play any numbers game you haven't rigged yerself'.
verisimilitude: I'm aware of the memset issues, the ``no really, do the fucking memset'' version of memset, and others, but this is just from casual reading.
verisimilitude: I also enjoy mocking C language programmers, so this is from where most of the anti-knowledge came.
verisimilitude: This is also why I don't go to the same lengths as others here; I don't want to bother with a clean GNU/Linux, just a new system entirely; I'll aim for an ideal, or get nothing.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: the telltale leper's bell of nsa-hijacked opensores is 'glued with broken glass', where deliberate booby such that you cannot easily remove the 'misfeature', cuz 'errything depends on it', and where impossible to write against old & new version compatibly, anyffin that works with the 'new' automagically chokes the old
verisimilitude: SystemD is exemplary.
signpost: verisimilitude: no such thing as a clean linux; better to think of it as keeping the old pickup truck running.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: the sad fact is that unless one takes efforts to preserve a working 2000s unixlike, soon enuff there won't be ~on what~ to even write 'ideal new system. you'll be sitting in front of an ipad or equiv
verisimilitude: I just use GuixSD, which broke, and another machine uses OpenBSD.
verisimilitude: I should purchase an ice40 and start playing with it already; I was thinking about an ideal system, and realized my thinking on it had grown a tad fuzzy.
asciilifeform found yrs ago that openbsd -- colonized by fungus and abandoned all attempts to salvage

verisimilitude: I have pieces of an ideal system, but the whole keeps walking further away.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: there's an unsexy, boring, but vital chore -- to keep the entire fucking concept of a computer from similarly 'walking away'
verisimilitude: Just build Emacs from source, then.

verisimilitude: Say, asciilifeform, while Pest's Direct Text provides a whitelist operation, there's not a corresponding blacklist mode. I'll make an example.
verisimilitude: Let's say I want to discuss a piece of media, and ``spoil'' something, and so I announce this first.
verisimilitude: One or two users don't want to read it.
verisimilitude: Sending a private message to everyone else would be a bother.
verisimilitude: The one or two users could disconnect and reconnect. There's no such Pest operation, however.
verisimilitude: A blacklist could be built out of Direct Text, but it may be worth considering a command for such things.
verisimilitude: The primary issue is the unbounded nature of a blacklist in comparison.
verisimilitude: One could imagine, say, ``Don't send my next message with hash checksum of ??? to the name payload of this message.'', as one solution.

dulapbot: (trilema) 2015-08-09 asciilifeform: one notable attempt at 'fits in book but usable' was minix. a failed attempt.
asciilifeform: ( and see also e.g. )
dulapbot: (trilema) 2015-03-11 ascii_field: trinque: but before you can even have this line of thought, find a stock chipset to which you can even port 'minix' without -any- blobs or -any- detectable dysfunction
verisimilitude: So it's a driver issue?
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: not only. (the 'driver issue' is that if one in fact adds in errything req'd to make tolerably current irons run, get ~at least~ same mass as current linux)
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: rly is a cmachine issue.
asciilifeform: minix ( or even better example, 'sysv for pc' ) is acorn of same shit-oak as erry other x86 cliquishit os.

verisimilitude: I'll do that, regarding the buffers.
verisimilitude: I've already thought of one reduction.
