mircea_popescu: what's to say. the volume of shit you gotta preserve rapidly expands > the gb. the work your techs are required to do in order to accomplish this scales ~liniarily with the shithub "work" of the maggots.
asciilifeform: trinque: a finite # of these releases, existed... theoretically could try'em all
mircea_popescu: not a sane use of our limited resources.
asciilifeform: ( gentoo per se automates a good chunk of the work. iterate over xorgs until one builds with gcc4... )
mircea_popescu: in theory there's no difference between theory and practice.
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-06#1666252 << as was mentioned in logs before, portage doesn't contain sources. it downloads sources from elsewhere
a111: Logged on 2017-06-06 00:38 ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: could one pull down an older portage archive and run from that forever? although forsaking updates?
asciilifeform: phf: i assumed he meant 'the mirrors'
asciilifeform: and point out -- afaik there was never a 'whole world' mirror.
asciilifeform: ( one of the appeals of bsd is that something like it -- existed )
phf: i don't think bsd mirrors it either, it's not mandatory by design anyway
phf: afaiu the only distros that preserve the whole thing are debian and redhat
asciilifeform: rathead preserved sources?!
phf: yeah, i think they package them into srpms, but i'm not sure if they are mandatory step in the distribution process
asciilifeform: i'ma hazard a guess, that you will barf long before ever succeeding in actually tracking down 100% of the src that adds up to a given rathead install.
phf: yeah, cursory interneting reveals as much
asciilifeform: !!up gabriel_laddel_p
deedbot: gabriel_laddel_p voiced for 30 minutes.
gabriel_laddel_p: I don't have the disk space to back these up myself, but someone can start with: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-03#1552071
a111: Logged on 2016-10-03 21:36 gabriel_laddel: $$ later tell dina_corman gentoo distfile backups
gabriel_laddel_p: If you google for "funtoo distfiles mirror" and review all google results, should provide a decent start.
ben_vulpes: so xorg-drivers 1.18-r1 pulls in xorg-server-1.19.3, which pulls in xorg-drivers-1.19.3 which conflicts with the requested version
mircea_popescu: as i was saying, been there, done that, got no tshirt.
mircea_popescu: there's no problem with the provision of "decent starts".
asciilifeform: 'The use of Git and SSL/TLS sets a very high barrier for in-flight tampering. This is not the point of discussion.' lel
mircea_popescu: that's what this whole tower of idiot boy excrement consists of.
ben_vulpes rubs face
mircea_popescu: the idea is to have acceptable ends.
ben_vulpes: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/Ahc2R/?raw=true << this still pulls gcc 5 in, yes?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: it doesn't cure gcc5ism, no
asciilifeform: now you might try same recipe, cum a gcc5 ban
asciilifeform: see if it ends up pulling last-sane vers of various.
asciilifeform: before you say 'nowai' -- i was equally surprised that the poettering ban worked as well as it did
asciilifeform: (i.e. resulted in a very usable box, that i still use every day)
asciilifeform: the important bit is that it has to be done on a ~virginal~ gentoo
asciilifeform: that hasn't been shat in yet
trinque: if you put chromium on it, you're done
ben_vulpes: trinque: kinda what i'm looking at
asciilifeform: btw there is a dbus-remover patch for chromium, somewhere
asciilifeform: i have not tested it.
trinque: then somebody will get in via your unicode parser
trinque: or sound driver via malicious porn soundtrack
trinque: point being how does one not say to himself, "if connected to net, what you've got there is an NSA terminal, and that's it"
asciilifeform: trinque: in the multiGB tub of liquishit, there are million years' worth of 'surprise'
asciilifeform: it must die.
asciilifeform: all of it.
trinque: obviously what I said.
trinque: considering the million years worth of surprise, I'm inclined to believe that standardization on gentoo or whatever else is insane.
trinque: attacker will know exactly what surprises to apply to all.
asciilifeform: trinque: to the extent gentoo was interesting, it was because it enabled ~nonstandardization~.
asciilifeform: i.e. ~0 required programs.
asciilifeform: ( one weak point -- it did demand python )
trinque: could have, but nobody beat anyone when ebuilds decided to pull down deps out of band into /var/tmp or wherever
asciilifeform: i speak of gentoo in past tense. but it remains that every box i will ever, likely, live to use , will still be made from bricks of the ruins of gentoo, and not from anything else.
trinque: asciilifeform: no disagreement there either; here I sit on my own heirloom pistolchair
asciilifeform: because there isn't actually an alternative.
asciilifeform: not if you actually ~work~ with the comp.
asciilifeform: ( vs 'glorified ipad' )
mircea_popescu: trinque kinda my thinking. gentoo === ubuntu, and for that matter === windows. not really better, just "different".
trinque: I think phf is right in pointing to old debian cd sets as dep time capsules.
mircea_popescu: i don't. there's nothing to capsule. have some lulz-debian with their epic rngs capsuled ? noty.
trinque: true also.
mod6: yah, that shit is br0k3d
mircea_popescu: "oh, but we patch that". sure you do. and who's gonna feed the boy genius that manages all the patchcomplexity ?
mircea_popescu: it's "decent starts" all the way down.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-06#1666349 << spoken like a true 'my comp is ipad with keyboard' fella.
a111: Logged on 2017-06-06 01:23 mircea_popescu: trinque kinda my thinking. gentoo === ubuntu, and for that matter === windows. not really better, just "different".
mircea_popescu: dos is probably the last capsulable item. and it has no broadband.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform don't make me dig into what "work" is!11
trinque: asciilifeform: in other threads you're the one making the same claim.
trinque: "no different!!111!!!1!!!1" << moar recognizable?
asciilifeform: trinque: link?
trinque: you can't recall the "but intel nics" loop yourself?
mircea_popescu: tis a bitter pill this, "computing never actually worked. ever. period."
trinque: not as if I wouldn't like there to be recourse here.
trinque: one advantage of being one of the least educated guys here. "my life is wasted" happened ~decade ago.
asciilifeform: trinque: there was a thread, at one point, with philosophical puzzle -- if chained to wheelbarrow at butugychag, would you rather have one with spikes on handles, or not. or something to this effect.
asciilifeform: trinque: what'd it even mean for life 'not wasted' ? i gotta ask
trinque: to have one's life's work end up on the longest chain, and not discarded.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-06#1666358 << phunphakt: dos drivers (tsr!) exist for ~all recent nic chipsets. i don't even know why, but they do. they figure in my eternal 'reverse rtlink GB chip' thing.
a111: Logged on 2017-06-06 01:27 mircea_popescu: dos is probably the last capsulable item. and it has no broadband.
asciilifeform: ( reasonably compact )
trinque: ada sits down happily on DOS eh?
asciilifeform: trinque: on bare iron, too
asciilifeform: dun really need an os
asciilifeform: ( has own scheduler, for instance )
asciilifeform: dos per se is crippling in re sticking you into 16bit x86 idiot mode
asciilifeform: ( have fun with 640k and segments )
asciilifeform: but for some purposes 640k is 10x moar than you would ever even need,
asciilifeform: e.g. i fully intend a dos port of 'p'.
asciilifeform: ( would need a rs232 FUCKGOATS attached )
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-06#1666370 << this is quite fundamentally unknowable. e.g., europe was so very certain that it lives on longest chain... and then poof!!!
a111: Logged on 2017-06-06 01:35 trinque: to have one's life's work end up on the longest chain, and not discarded.
asciilifeform: one could ask for, i suppose, 'i dun want to consciously mine on orphan chain', but this is not up to you, and in the degenerate case it reduces to... asking to be stupider
asciilifeform: '...dun want to consciously...'
trinque: point being, someone will have to argue the merits of stacking blocks on linux, and all the other turds contained in the term.
asciilifeform: trinque: as soon as credible alternative -- poof, linux is bad memory
trinque: also, I said "no recourse" earlier and you balked
trinque: now you claim "no recourse"
trinque: so we agree.
asciilifeform: trinque: can take wheelbarrow with spikes, and anal waltz with lube; or without. matter of taste.
asciilifeform: fact: FG would not exist if i had to design and test it on a winblowz box.
mircea_popescu: it's a fortunate thing, then, that nobody's making you do anything.
asciilifeform: eh hey i got another room where i do things for pay, and there are all kinds of horrors there, even winblowz vm
asciilifeform: even crapples
asciilifeform: ( i haven't a nintendo yet, at least!111 )
mircea_popescu: in another castle, there's even an ipad!
asciilifeform: but indeed there exists this marvelous world of items folx made 'because were made to', 'use what you gotta', 'deadline', 'pays the rent', etc. these items are called, generally : shitware.
asciilifeform: it is how shitware reproduces.
asciilifeform: the next fella gets your thing and is ordered to 'make X run..' etc
asciilifeform: naggum described process 'perl accretion' but it applies in general case.
trinque: thus there is no republican linux.
asciilifeform: no republican comp, either
asciilifeform: ( the two, i maintain, are not unrelated )
asciilifeform: it was tricky enough to make 'republican rng', an item closer in order of complexity, to a knife or a fork, than to a comp
asciilifeform: but possibly asciilifeform is just thick
trinque: no, only the latter item is not made by single monk toiling alone
asciilifeform: we don't presently know of any other means of making worthwhile things, sadly.
asciilifeform: mass market --> nintendo.
asciilifeform: want good eats ? cook it. ( or someone close to you -- cooks )
asciilifeform: speakingg of which, brb
trinque: I've seen instances before where a guy made a tool, went around to a few folks showing them "the greatestest X" thinking "they're smart, will pick up my tool and use"
trinque: obviously it's better.
trinque: 0 did.
trinque has ever since made his money lifting makework out of incompetents with software, making tools for himself to do so.
trinque: works better in this environment, and I understand why the notion is revolting.
trinque: *makework out of incompetents' hands
