trinque wonders if douchebag realizes what useful work it'd be, to know how easily trb nodes can be popped, given that the wallet will of course have to be sitting right there, with same permissions, on same box, and etc
trinque: (and obviously, ~I do not use the trb wallet~)
ave1: asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-05#1793119, with this script http://ave1.org/2018/building-gnat-on-musl-now-with-a-signature/ it is possible to build a cross compiler for aarch64, I will try to use this cross-compiler to then create a native compiler.
a111: Logged on 2018-04-05 03:17 asciilifeform: but annoying that nobody seems to have ever published one or mentioned the existence.
asciilifeform: ave1: i did one for mips ( never properly tested tho ) a few yrs back
asciilifeform: ave1: the surprising bit is the total absence of any mention of a working gnat for arm64 ( despite it being a quite common chip for several yrs )
asciilifeform: trinque: theoretically 'every private has a marshal's baton in his knapsack', but realistically it is not esp. likely that 'popping trb' had to wait for this 1 d00d to turn 19 or what he was.

trinque: we stopped on a perfect copy of openssl did we?
asciilifeform: 'not remotely poppable' != 'perfect'
asciilifeform: fwiw it dun hurt to try. ftr, asciilifeform's orig interest in reading the src, long before even running into mircea_popescu et al , was precisely this.

diana_coman_away: thanks! slowly eating logs here

asciilifeform: ave1: it went into /var/log/messages
asciilifeform: or do i misunderstand the q
asciilifeform: ave1: we had just the other day a thread re 'gnat pro'. it's interesting, in principle, but i sure as fucking daylight ain't ever signing nonredistribution oaths for a compiler
ave1: aha, I was wondering weather you noticed some led blinking, but log would do it
ave1: yes, me neither
asciilifeform: ave1: nah , no led. log noise. and documented, apparently, issue , with some brands of sd, going back years
asciilifeform: appears to be harmless, the retry-read always succeeds
asciilifeform: at any rate, rockchip pilot-plant boxen will boot from sd and mount usb3 stick for root partition.
asciilifeform: ave1: unrelatedly, iirc you're the one who was lucky winner of 1 phree FG ? didja get it yet ?
ave1: yes I was! and no nothing arrived yet...
asciilifeform: went out on mar. the 22.
ave1: well shipping from US has taken anything from 1 to 4 weeks in the past
asciilifeform: ave1: then too soon to say that it was magicked away
trinque: asciilifeform: in general you're probably right, though in general not most are persistent enough to join the republic.
trinque: gotta give the guy worthwhile targets to see
trinque: ftr if the report is "trb's deps are not susceptible to any known RCE" that'd be a fine thing to see written up too
ben_vulpes: today's marvelous self-licking ice-cream-cone: surgeon general suggests that everyone near to folks at risk for overdosing on fentanyl and friends carry naxalone. i for one can't wait to see what the new equilibrium intake rate is without mortality risk looming.
trinque: and obviously that wouldn't be reason to develop a false sense of security either.
ben_vulpes: "audits can only show presence of holes, never the absence" or how did it go
trinque: rce isn't the only thing that'd be interesting, even cpu bog-down or mem usage DoS would be relevant to staying at the front of the chain.
asciilifeform: it is a little bit funny to talk of bogdown and dos 'vulnerability' in a proggy that happily does o(n) operations at the request of allcomers
asciilifeform: not to mention lets any and all-comers hog sockets for as long as they can come up with fresh ip
asciilifeform: happily does ~by design~
trinque: AIDS patient doesn't ignore fungus because AIDS, but on the contrary
trinque: its also homework.
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, trinque , ever looked into purging sslism from gentoo ? in particular the existence of /etc/ca-certificates.conf and its contents as a ~mandatory package, i find quite irritating
asciilifeform: ( or at the very least, if not purged, every proggy that attempts to lean on usg.pki-ism should generate a log event )
trinque: just gotta mask it and weep, and kiss whatever wanted it goodbye
trinque is on a box currently that's musl + libressl, but I don't know that it's much better
asciilifeform: whole pkiism concept is deeply offensive from a republican pov.
trinque: indeed it is
trinque: -ssl hits some, other ebuilds (and this happens more by the day, on various) don't implement the use flag. "what, of course you want that!"
asciilifeform: i can see an argument for retaining an ability to emulate a sslistic client, for http-fetching heathenware when absolutely must . but beyond this -- it Must Die
trinque has considered using the portage profile feature for this
asciilifeform: in particular this thought in asciilifeform's head sprung from noticing a CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK='/etc/gentoo-release /etc/sandbox.d /etc/terminfo /etc/ca-certificates.conf' in the default environment
trinque: have a fascist profile that ideally becomes the only one, and perhaps another profile that's more lax, used for porting over things or w/e.
asciilifeform: i.e. sslism is treated as 'special' and 'precious' evidently in >1 place
trinque: but, if already saying we'll be curating ebuilds I don't see much of a point of the latter
asciilifeform: ultimately ideal would be fully vtronic replacement for portage.
trinque: and we have to eat all of portage, or we'll be in the position I was in when I handed current cuntoo script to diana_coman
trinque: "oh sorry, outside world moved while we held still. build is now broke as a joke."
trinque: this is the primary item on my workbench atm
asciilifeform: well, not 'all of', but the closure-over-the-set of actually-used things
trinque: "be responsible for everything considered republican portage"
trinque: yes not eat all existing ebuilds
asciilifeform: seems like maybe ~150 packages are in practice needed for a Troo Workstation
trinque: own distfiles server, etc
asciilifeform: and the number can probably be reduced considerably
trinque has a busybox userland-golf experiment on the workbench
asciilifeform: good chunk of the installed packages on typical gentoo box is really liquishit
trinque: though dunno if busybox counts, just giant wad of many utils.
trinque: the appeal there is one upstream dependency vs various
asciilifeform: i find busybox to be useful on ancient routers , pogo , & similar , but quite unusable as a unixutils substitute on actual workstation
asciilifeform: it is not even remotely 100% compatible with classical bash etc
trinque: the embedded constraint would, I'd wager, place a constraint on amount of shitgnomaticism to creep in.
trinque: but probably yes, not compatible strictly with latest bash
asciilifeform: imho the long-term answer is '3rd way' , i.e. all the crud i wrote in bash, python, etc over the years really oughta be in the hypothetical little-lisp-in-ada from old thread.
asciilifeform: ( and at future date then readily transposable to a sane, nonunixoid os )
trinque: busybox default doesn't preclude there being a bash ebuild neh?
trinque is taking "smallest possible bootable userland"
asciilifeform: sure. but a default that nobody uses in battlefield, is not much to brag about.
trinque: fair point.
trinque: I admittedly *don't* use bash in battlefield, but privately on the workbench
asciilifeform: iirc we even have somebody who lives in ksh.
asciilifeform: ( or maybe i dreamed this. )
asciilifeform: in other lulz, sbcl apparently mildly broken on arm64: builds 100% but then ' can't find core file at /usr/lib/sbcl//sbcl.core '

mircea_popescu: seinfeld's superman comics and cereal eating habits meet the yudkowski "oh, on the basis of the behaviours of the three goats we have back at camp, women like dweebs" and the "lalala i can't hear you, us army bb gun is very efficient when fired at gelatin 5 feet away and the fact that you'll never get that close nor ever have to fight large blobs irl IS NOT IN MY FIELD OF VISION"
mircea_popescu: then they believe (pretend to "think critically", but do no such thing, simply believe) rank nonsense like "global warming" because... THE MODEL!!! the model reminds them of the simplified characters in the manga they loved as children and the general deus-ex-machina atmosphere fits well with their only formative experiences.
mircea_popescu: and so pantsuit science emerges naturally, out of a certain kind of child abuse ; it no longer needs agency for explaining its existence.

mircea_popescu: basically this wikipedian wankster thing seems to be a major-ish neet subculture. evidently under the whole chems thing, or guns, or "baptist"ism / most other first echelon things. but perhaps large enough to make 2nd tier, with post-punk, petaism, and so forth. a sort of mirror-knitting subculture, i guess.
asciilifeform: dunno that 'subculture' is the word. sorta like calling syphilis a subculture
mircea_popescu: syphilis very much was a subculture.
asciilifeform: then this also
mircea_popescu: diseases are in fact the best framework for conceptualizing subcultures -- that's what they are, broken people. broken how is relatively uninteresting.
mircea_popescu: but the girl who genuinely believes her little village is everything and being a dairy maid is the be all (great little novel about this, with nobleman who married dairy maid, ended up making the dutchess a... dairy) is not substantially different from the guy who thinks mercury salts will right him.
