nubbins`: and it's BANANAS TOWN that it's popping up here
ascii_modem: here's a perverse idea
nubbins`: dynamically link all the things?
ascii_modem: openwatcom/linux.
nubbins`: eeeeh
ascii_modem: it exists. beloved classic compiler used by almost all msdos games outfits in '90s
ascii_modem: opensourced about a decade ago
ascii_modem: mostly frozen in time.
ascii_modem: betcha it staticlinks...
nubbins`: /home/nubs/dev/bitcoin-v0_5_3_1/ourlibs/lib/libcrypto.a(dso_dlfcn.o): undefined reference to symbol 'dlerror'
ascii_modem: and before mircea_popescu asks - no i dont have rigorous proof of equivalence of watcom to gcc
ascii_modem: Or! of his gcc to mine to yours to ... rms's !
nubbins`: rmscc

nubbins`: "He did post it. Not only was he banned from this forum that day (he unbanned himself with an exploit), but ALL of the videos on his youtube were reported and removed for copyright infringement, including the ones showing detail work because there was music playing on the radio in the background. In short he already went out of his way to prove his innocence to a bunch of stalker idiots here just to have his accounts shut down and was tired
nubbins`: of playing games. Use your own eyeballs/brain instead of listening to the mob of neckbeards who harassed/negged him. "
nubbins`: he unbanned himself with an exploit :0
nubbins`: i think there's something in the forum's water supply
nubbins`: this is the $10mn/year master carver he's talking about, that's using 0day exploits to unban himself from the forum
nubbins`: so that he may deliver his piece de resistance: a 500btc scavenger hunt that can only be solved by purchasing all of his old laser-engraved coins from the various sock accounts that "bought" them
nubbins`: it's like the usms thing but on the forum
ascii_modem: as someone who only ever knew about it from #b-a links - i thought it was a kinda nature preserve just for folks like woodman
nubbins`: oh, sorry, 5000 btc.
ascii_modem: why not 50000?
nubbins`: not sure.
nubbins`: he says he buried it in a capsule somewhere
ascii_modem: how do these folks decide how many zeroes
nubbins`: oh, wait, it was a thousand "bronze bitcoins" or smth with 5btc on each
nubbins`: i think they have zero dice
nubbins`: roll a few, count the naughts

nubbins`: "Not only was he banned from this forum that day (he unbanned himself with an exploit)"
nubbins`: ah, goodness
ascii_modem: did anyone ever actually buy from this nitwit ?
decimation: ascii_modem: I thought we went over the libdl/openssl thing
nubbins`: from what i can figure, he buys accounts
nubbins`: and uses the bought accounts to "buy" his coins
nubbins`: with the exception of one or two rubes

decimation: I thought he put that in the script
ascii_modem: did anyone try this? i forget
decimation: I did, on my own
ascii_modem: works?
nubbins`: sorry
decimation: well, it compiled anyway

nubbins`: glengarry glen spam
nubbins`: the shouting is starting to get really good now
decimation: ascii_modem: did you see the earlier note about glibc compiled statically
ascii_modem: decimation: ?
decimation: well, redhat provides a static libc
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15319 @ 0.00027266 = 4.1769 BTC [+]
decimation: the libnss symbols are present therein
nubbins`: !up AusBitBank
ascii_modem: if i can't replicate it with my existing toolchain - it doesnt exist
decimation: ah you are using uclibc for pogo
nubbins`: i am
nubbins`: go small or go to the mall
decimation: well, the redhat glibc static build is pretty much just building glibc with -static
nubbins`: ok, so the libdl/DSO thing is gone
decimation: ok from uclibc docs/Glibc_vs_uClibc_Differences.txt
decimation: 6) uClibc does not support NSS (/lib/libnss_*), which allows glibc to easily support various methods of authentication and DNS resolution. uClibc only supports flat password files and shadow password files for storing authentication information. If you need something more complex than this, you can compile and install pam.
decimation: so this is not an issue for pogo anyway
ascii_modem: this invites the question of why should we ever use conventional libc again.
decimation: indeed
decimation: all the more reason to use embedded buildroot/minimal distro
decimation: the amount of bloat in glibc is quite shocking
decimation: I mostly blame redhat
decimation: they want to turn linux into winblows
nubbins`: who doesn't
nubbins`: meanwhile windows wants to turn itself into a bunch of sheets of coloured construction paper laid out on a blue tarp
decimation: < ""We never ever go into a customer and say, 'There's an application that's not supported on RHEL," Cormier said. "If it's supported on Windows, it's supported on RHEL.""
assbot: How Red Hat killed its core product—and became a billion-dollar business | Ars Technica ... ( )
decimation: ^ what he means, specifically, is that you can enslave your rhel machine to a winblows 'kerberos/ldap' server
decimation: which gives us glibc turdlets
Adlai never understood why nobody wrote a tree-shaking compiler
decimation: ascii_modem: suddenly talk about lisp machines seems cool
ascii_modem: one reason is that it is damnably hard for c/cpp
assbot: CompCert ... ( )
Adlai: sure, but it's not like this is the first time people have wanted to use minimal functionality from existing libraries
decimation: ^ I tried to use it once, immediately puked when it encountered system libraries
ascii_modem: safety-critical c, l0l!!
decimation: don't laugh ascii, it's apparently industry standard
ascii_modem: the car-with-stuck-accelerator industry?
decimation: aye that's what I'm thinking of
ascii_modem: or the plane-falls-like-brick one
decimation: it's in the logs somewhere. point is, there's a whole cottage industry around trying to 'support' C for missions that matter
assbot: Toyota's killer firmware: Bad design and its consequences | EDN ... ( )
decimation: Barr's ultimate conclusions were that: Toyota’s electronic throttle control system (ETCS) source code is of unreasonable quality. Toyota’s source code is defective and contains bugs, including bugs that can cause unintended acceleration (UA). Code-quality metrics predict presence of additional bugs. Toyota’s fail safes are defective and inadequate (referring to them as a “house of cards” safety architecture).
decimation: Misbehaviors of Toyota’s ETCS are a cause of UA. "
decimation: "Although the investigation focused almost entirely on software, there is at least one HW factor: Toyota claimed the 2005 Camry's main CPU had error detecting and correcting (EDAC) RAM. It didn't. EDAC, or at least parity RAM, is relatively easy and low-cost insurance for safety-critical systems."
decimation: one wonders how much of our lives depend directly on such hard and soft turdware
decimation: !up ascii_modem
ascii_modem: as much as we let.
decimation: rms was right about this kind of stuff
decimation: if 'we' let vendors hide their software, they will produce turds
ascii_modem: it will happen until hammurabic punishment is reintroduced.
Adlai: something like compcert doesn't help when the libraries have mounds of garbage code, even if it "works," you just get mounds of garbage object code
decimation: Adlai: yeah I don't think it will even let you link with any modern open source standard libraries
ascii_modem: fits-in-head is the only answer. though it goes well with a balanced diet of public impalements for wreckerz
ascii_modem: fitted non-ecc ram in a car? enjoy being used as living crash dummy in next test
decimation: at least toyota got to pocket $0.50!
ascii_modem: some berkshire 'wriggleys' is laughing all the way to the bank
ascii_modem: but it is important to remember -why-
ascii_modem: it is -not!- because the non-ecc chip is cheaper
ascii_modem: but because the unreflective imbecile who signed off on it is.
decimation: ^ should be sat upon stake
ascii_modem: cheaper than that endangered animal, the actual engineer...
decimation: somewhere there was a sweatshop where some asian person was committing code to this device
decimation: and that person either *knew* what he was doing or was pathologically ignorant
ascii_modem: quite possibly did not even know, for toyota or toy car
ascii_modem: but someone -decided- to use the idiot coolie
decimation: true. it's also possible that the code was acquired from elsewhere, written for some other purpose, and was 'merit-washed' into the ecm module
ascii_modem: ^ not uncommon
decimation: not uncommon at all - for instance, openssl

ben_vulpes: (live cd connects through virtualization layer just happily

mircea_popescu: "someone could solve this"
mircea_popescu: sure, someone could. the moment someone does you get ubuntu - two years of unusable, six months of barely usable and then insta-poettering.
mircea_popescu: ubuntu is practically 10.04
trinque: hm, how do you resolve it?
trinque: either it's easy to install and becomes the shit-smeared playground, or it's pulling teeth and marginally less shit-smeared, it seems
mircea_popescu: how. spiked club in one hand, plank-with-nail in another hand.
mircea_popescu: stepping on transvestite cocks and hispster beards, in a swamp of hurt feelings.
trinque: haha, the plank with nail is unstoppable
trinque: sounds like a hell of a fun time

mats: quoth the spender: "the problem i set out to solve with UDEREF was that many kernel bugs can be exploited (at all or more reliably) due to the fact that on i386 most OSs don't separate the userland virtual address space from that of the kernel. this in turn means that whenever userland can make the kernel (unexpectedly) dereference a userland controlled
mats: pointer, userland can control the data (and sometimes, control) flow of the kernel by virtue of providing the attack data in its own userland address range as it's fully visible in the kernel's virtual address space as well"
