mircea_popescu: but looky : the fact that some later schmuck had better/different materials
mircea_popescu: does not per se say anything about the earlier one.
mircea_popescu: this is "my girlfriend was a virgin when i met her because her previous boyfriend had a shitty job"
asciilifeform: earlier schmuck, supposedly had 'everything'
mircea_popescu: not so.
asciilifeform: or everything he could fit on his bag of disks

mircea_popescu: and at the time at least they still thought "we" don't have the list
BingoBoingo: Nothing interesting was ever conveyed by powerpoint
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, that was actually a rather lulzy forced humiliation.
mircea_popescu: they couldn't even let the ips through, because that badly set up.

asciilifeform: hanbot: it means that the stator has to be set up in the same way as for classic stator - there is a 'distfiles' dir, the one with MANIFEST, that needs to have the tarballs placed therein
BingoBoingo: Who knows, head may feel better afterwards, would take offer.
asciilifeform: hanbot: you will have a dir, outermost, named what you like - e.g., 'rotor', and then rotor/toolchain and rotor/buildroot-xxx and rotor/stator, inside the latter - quite the same thing as in normal stator, other than the musl patch and the script (replacing the old
asciilifeform: hanbot: the basic idea of 'rotor' is that you have quite the same stator as before, but it is built with a toolchain (gcc and binutils) that were built for the occasion, and use musl

mod6: i ran into the the same problem as trinque with mine. and you told him 'get a computer'

mod6: wont really revisit until after the 1st.

mod6: ascii_field: ya

ascii_field: i too have been busy with other things, and lost track.

phf: is rotor intended for general distribution, that is non-specialist should be able to download and do an independent turnkey build?

ascii_field: 'rotor' is the result.

phf: i remember, musl is pretty cool, it's part of the whole suckless movement
ascii_field: mod6: unfortunately there is not enough info in this paste to go on
ascii_field: phf: the other purpose of 'rotor' is to have a 100% deterministic build
ascii_field: the only way to have this is for everyone to also build the compiler

mircea_popescu: come to argentina start a black market dollar trading empire.
mircea_popescu: the locals are broadly speaking too retarded to qualify as frogs.
williamdunne: I lack capital, but conceptualized a service that could handle such things
williamdunne: (Friend is working on something similar for India/Brazil)
mircea_popescu: forget "service" dood. stop trying to abstract your ass from the fucking, that's not how it works.
mircea_popescu: go on the street, it's where life happens.
mircea_popescu: that's what the local derps are daydreaming too, "services" and "platforms" and their mother's wide cunts.
phf: hypothetically speaking how does a black market dollar trading works? bring cash past border control, sell to locals at margin?
mircea_popescu: phf buy and sell from locals, organise couriers to keep bringing bills in to help me bring down the fucktarded slow motion socialism they call "peroniosm" here
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: how does bringing green pieces of paper from up north help bring down anyone ?
mircea_popescu: whole shebang's got maaaaaybe a coupla years left of "podremos vivir mejor" and "victoria es tener un trabajo y non necesitar un secundo" left in it.

ascii_field: am i thick or what
williamdunne: What is the primary method of getting Argentinian toilet paper back into dollars?
mircea_popescu: you wait for a coupla years, then buy the pick of the crop of the current 12 yo women and sell them to brunei.
mircea_popescu: by then they'll just be startin' the bleedin'.
ascii_field: i mean, when i visited i traded mircea_popescu a bit of usd for coin. how did he use them to put a small hole in 'peronism' ?
mircea_popescu: ascii_field the less control over the currency the soi-dissant state enjoys, the closer it gets to its pissant destiny.
punkman: mircea_popescu: how much USD can one bring when entering .ar ?
mircea_popescu: and ~currency~ means something specific. the ~current~ medium of exchange.
mircea_popescu: punkman usual 10k or whatever you feel like stashing.
ascii_field: 10k is the traditional legal limit usa-side
punkman: around 10k euros around europe too
mircea_popescu: some people bring half mil to a mil, but then you run the risk of having to maybe shoot the dummies.
punkman: are there euros in .ar black market?
mircea_popescu: some people prefer to not bother. either way.
mircea_popescu: sort-of, yeah.
ascii_field: if the $mil fits in your pocket, you probably won't have to shoot anyone
mircea_popescu: ascii_field the half mil fits in a large travel bag.

ascii_field: probably safer to have this bad outside, vs inside of usa!

mod6: i get the same thing on mine -- the (bitcoin-v0_5_4-TEST1.tar.gz has a script that pulls that one via curl command):
mod6: boost=""
mod6: curl -L "$boost/1.52.0/boost_1_52_0.tar.bz2" -s -o distfiles/boost_1_52_0.tar.bz2
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 24299 @ 0.00051492 = 12.512 BTC [-]
mod6: and this is what all of my older v0.5.3.1 builds have pulled down for the .tar.gz:
mod6: 8de651beb9a48f91f8a797f44966b8f25c3351d6893c1d79969aeb2ded3adeaf8fc14aa9b8a4410081dde9ef155330b41a4982a62b55adde40bb73f0066c74a2 distfiles/boost_1_52_0.tar.gz
punkman: mod6: above curl command doesn't work for me
mod6: did you enter the line above it first?
mod6: i put this in the script. it pulls them down, have tried on 3 different environments of my own, and independantly verified 2x otherwise.
mod6: anyway, this is all gonna change.
mod6: punkman: did you try the line above it first? the first line: boost="" << sets a environment variable. is required for the second part to work: curl -L "$boost/1.52.0/boost_1_52_0.tar.bz2" -s -o distfiles/boost_1_52_0.tar.bz2
mod6: anyway, that has nothing to do with anything
punkman: mod6, yeah it worked now, but got html more than once
mod6: because alf's original stator doens't have that in there.
mod6: he expects everyone to pull down their own bundles.
mod6: The Foundation isn't going to ship these builds scripts any more. We're just going to ship source code for bitcoin.
mod6: How one builds the source is entire up to the user. There may be preferred way so of doing this, such as 'rotor' and so forth. And we'll participate in creating cookbooks and guides on how to do this. But we no longer are going to fight through these environment problems.
punkman: just host the dependencis on
mod6: No no.
mod6: Only in some sort of catestrophic circumstance will we do such a thing.
mod6: Like sourceforge goes away, or OpenSSL gets a million pound shit dropped on its head.
trinque: mod6: I think that's wise, actually.
trinque: it's a neverending mess
mod6: Trying to create a one-size-fits-all script for everyone to use to build this thing is not going to work. And how does one bundle up something such as 'rotor' and end up not maintaining buildroot and everything else? That's a game that I'm not interested in playing. And it's dangerous for us to go that direction.
mod6: We're gonna do what we do, deliver bitcoin source code.
mod6: The rest is all secondary.
mod6: And truly none of our business.
mod6: If asciilifeform needs a fully deterministic static bitcoind for his use, then sure, he can use whatever means he needs to achieve that.
mod6: And if someone wants to run a dynamically linked version? Who are we to tell them 'no'?
mod6: That all being said, I'm super glad that 'rotor' is out there now, and I hope to learn and use it one day myself. Maybe even this week! But that shouldn't be something that we deliver.
mod6: That should be something that you use for what we deliver.

mircea_popescu: more's the point here, i get the impression you're chaffing under too much workload.
mircea_popescu: !up mitzip
mod6: we need something that people can utilize to make it work. i totally agree with that. and scripts and other widgets to make it work could even be a separate bundle.
mod6: well, i've been pushin pretty hard as far as work load -- what scares me is taking on buildroot and trying to bundle/test the entire thing.
mircea_popescu: ok but listen, deep breath time.
mod6: and besides, we haven't exactly had great luck with our own build scripts to date.
mircea_popescu: useful work is useful work. taking responsibility for the whole world is a different story.
mircea_popescu: why mix the two.
trinque: mod6: I've already been testing some of your stuff; if nobody else wants to manage the build script, I'm fine with it
mircea_popescu: sure, not to date. but we're not going by the criteria of what is easy, so we don't really care. if we won't have success for the next decade we'll be here trying it in 2026.

mod6: i think he's as tired of our build script problems as I am.
mod6: which is why he said he wrote that in the first place.
mod6: but mircea_popescu makes sense.
trinque: yeah, I mean the thing needs a derpinstaller
trinque: there aren't enough smart people in the world
trinque: even among the smart people... :p
mircea_popescu: mod6 just don't go to this dark place where "omg it's the 29th and i must have a working final version of bitcoind to announce
mircea_popescu: "
mircea_popescu: you don't belong there, and moreover that's just not our company style.
mod6: oh no. i wasn't planning on that at all this month anyway.
mod6: not even for a few months -- even before rotor came out.
mod6: the idea was; put out this test bundle and see if we're on the right track and if anyone hits any problems with any of the patches.
mircea_popescu: that said, obviously the effort to make anything work on the stack of shit we inherited from our retarded ancestors is nothing short of immense. but, chipping away at it is going to deliver, and confronting it is definitely going to show us a few useful things.
mircea_popescu: mod6 so far 90%+ of the problems have been with installation, from what i've seen
mod6: yeah totally agree. and i can't help but wonder if it's simply because of things that each persons different host has not installed by default. but it's hard to account for all of that.
mod6: hard, not impossible.
mircea_popescu: yeah. still, it's valuable to try, because if you help people they'll help you.
mircea_popescu: later on.
mircea_popescu: otherwise struggling with installers etc is a horrid trudge, but it is also an investment in human capital.
mod6: so i guess there is still a bit of a fork in the road; even if we do all of the hard work of ensuring peoples host dependantcies are installed before any compiling is even attempted, do we even want that to be a thing, as stan said, this is now obsolete. And do we now maintain a lot of other things for buildroot?
mircea_popescu: we will have to at the very least maintain packages we want to use, in the basic sense of, archival for download.
mircea_popescu: this sounds patently insane, i agree, but i just recently discovered in unrelated proejct that it's unavoidable.
mircea_popescu: sourceforge goes down, there goes youre entire project, seriously ?
mircea_popescu: can't even afford this for eulora, let alone for bitcoin.
mod6: yeah I saw that about the eulora thing.
mircea_popescu: and do not buy into the illusion that it was an isolated incident.
mircea_popescu: it could happenb to sf, it can and definitely will happen to github etc.
mod6: so should we still create scripts for people to build without buildroot (i.e. and then host packages for the ability to construct a buildroot with a drop-in of the foundation source?

mircea_popescu: mod6 i'm not entirely sure how the specifics should work out. bit of an open question atm
mircea_popescu: but i'm pretty sure can't simply abandon the entire userland question, it'd be a major strategic mistake.
mod6: i agree. i'm just being careful not to create more work for myself/others than necessary.
mircea_popescu: i can appreciate that.
mircea_popescu: decimation that's what makes it suspicious. 20mn slashdot, 2bn github. because... reasons.

mircea_popescu: anyway, you should prolly take a bit of time away from the hands on work you love and do some management stuff.
mircea_popescu: at the very least draw a schema of what and how needs done so people's offers to help can be plugged in
punkman: trinque, sure set it up with your choice of OS and I'll write one for you
trinque: punkman: bitchin'
decimation: well, it's all theoretical valuation
trinque: it already has a basic gentoo install
decimation: nobody has offered to buy the thing for $2b as far as I know
mod6: mircea_popescu: ok sure. can do.
mircea_popescu: decimation you kiddin' me, it could buy out all the russia!
mircea_popescu: o wait, wrong one huh. nm.
decimation: lul
assbot: · nixxquality/WebMConverter@c1ac0ba · GitHub ... ( )
decimation: apparently github has turned into fark
mircea_popescu: lol
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 73335 @ 0.00051302 = 37.6223 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: no but just for my curiosity, what's github to do with a quarter bil ?
mircea_popescu: buy each employee ten dumptrucks full of pens ?
decimation: buy sourceforge and scam?
decimation: I donno
decimation: it's kinda the same question as "what's apple gonna do with $60b"
decimation: one guess: hire a full-time staff of indians to vigilantly search committed code for perceived slights
trinque: god knows why, america is drunk on QE
decimation: maybe they can get into the space business too
decimation: lol 'rotor' immediately fails on osx 10.10 with "You need at least one UTF8 locale to build a toolchain supporting locales"
decimation: I'm sure the homos at apple support utf8, but apparently it doesn't work with whatever buildroot wants
decimation: !up julmac
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 17436 @ 0.00053317 = 9.2964 BTC [+]
decimation: lol the problem was that buildroot was grepping 'locale -a' for utf8, while apple uses 'utf-8'
trinque: << even their bullshit graph is on the descent
assbot: - Bitcoin XT Nodes ... ( )
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23400 @ 0.000535 = 12.519 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: trinque you don't understand how "consensus" works
trinque: they're building it?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 50916 @ 0.00052796 = 26.8816 BTC [-] {3}
mircea_popescu: the funny thing will be that this schmuck will still be going around pretending like he actually exists and so forth even after this idiocy goes the way of neobee and "bitcoin security experts group"
mircea_popescu: just like phantomcircuit still goes around, an aethero waiting to happen.
mircea_popescu: somewhat related, chain jiggling.
assbot: ... ( )
mircea_popescu: decimation check it out, they need a metalocale. hopefully implemented as multibyte too!
lobbesbot: New post: Phuctored RSA Modulus, GCD=3 (randomnoize (Tor relay operator) ; randomnoize (Tor relay operator) ; ) <>
assbot: ... ( )
mircea_popescu: p=3. hm.
decimation: heh yeah. apple makes up standards as they go
mircea_popescu: (ftr, intrigeri is something crazy with the bug reports, may be all-internet record holder)
mircea_popescu: yup, that's the only time so far 3 appears alone as a factor.
decimation: interesting
decimation: seems like someone trolling maybe?
decimation: sigh a few more moles whacked and now this (on osx): xattr-at.c:36:20: error: too few arguments to function 'setxattr'
decimation: seems as though linux and osx and bsd use different 'attr' functions
decimation: on the other hand, surely 'tar' builds on osx. perhaps another night
asciilifeform: << very much, this
assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 01:39:10; mircea_popescu: << doesn't have to be a one size fits all. but if your software can't be built, your software doesn't exist. and it is still upon you to explain how you expect users to use your thing - nobody is going to go do the guesswork of "what the author might have meant", and ESPECIALLY no sane person should ever guess what "obvious" means for anyone else
asciilifeform: << bitcoin is - necessarily an operating system. sad but true. you lot ought to be thankful that it is not just as necessarily a ~device~.
assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 01:39:49; mircea_popescu: this "pure code" approach is no different from every other "pure research" proposition - sure, you're purely able to pursue pure goals now, but the cost is any conceivable relevancy.
asciilifeform: << we vivisected drepper here on several occasions. he is ~the~ most accomplished publicly-known gavin thus far.
assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 01:50:12; mircea_popescu: "Note, this is pretty much contrary to what Ulrich Drepper reckons about static linking." << everywhere a gavin!
asciilifeform: responsible, iirc, for ~all~ of the known bash exploits
asciilifeform: and the 'locales' bullshit
asciilifeform: and libnss, etc
asciilifeform: << if i have to ship a bootable linux iso, buildrooted for the purpose of building a) self b) bitcoin - i will. in fact, yes, i have this up my sleeve, BUT PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO USE IT instead of retarduntu etc
assbot: Logged on 30-07-2015 02:34:07; mircea_popescu: sure, not to date. but we're not going by the criteria of what is easy, so we don't really care. if we won't have success for the next decade we'll be here trying it in 2026.
