hanbot: diana_coman the regrind presses here without errors with phf's vpatch. i didn't try pressing with v.pl, possibly they're incompatible...?
hanbot: esthlos it doesn't. footnotes source & instructions are in http://thewhet.net/2017/10/a-compendium-of-possibly-helpful-stuffs-for-erecting-mircea-popescus-wordpress-with-nearly-free-speech-hosting/ , and i've never actually taken on the selection jazz. i can tuck em both into next patch tho.
ben_vulpes: ah, thanks trinque, figured i was s.o.l.
phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-11#1833362 << oh i see, your flow command outputs an impossible ordering, but press-path gives a correct press order, so i was wrong, sorry about the fud

diana_coman: hanbot, right, it's keccak hashes so ofc v.pl barfs although it's weird that it first presses so much of it and only then randomly throws up; at any rate, on different arch, phf's vpatch pressed the mp-wp genesis so at least the genesis itself seems all right
diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-05#1831973 -> asciilifeform any eta/status/update/something on this?
a111: Logged on 2018-07-05 17:59 diana_coman: asciilifeform, I get it: clone of dulap is pointless because it requires rotor-style which can be equally done on existing server; but we are talking of having a box with trinque's musltronic proto-cuntoo
asciilifeform: diana_coman: it's in the pipeline for this week. hopefully trinque's beta cuntoo actually worx.
diana_coman: right, good to know
asciilifeform: as i understand this will be the first field test outside of his bench.
mircea_popescu: afaik v.pl is no longer maintained
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: hmm, last i knew, mod6 was still supporting it
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, it's not a v.pl problem really at any rate; it wasn't directly clear keccak hashes and yest was a long day here
a111: Logged on 2018-05-20 18:42 mod6: When you see it in the flow, then you should be good. Then you'll have to do : ./v.pl p v mpwp mp-wp_genesis.vpatch pd mpwp sd .mpwp-seals
diana_coman: I thought that was the old one?
mircea_popescu: tbh, i tihnk what happened here was : original mpwp was sha, then hanbot reground it
diana_coman: yes; I suppose it would have helped to have in the list there the move form sha to keccak
trinque: asciilifeform: pretty high degree of confidence in the build. oughta be exact same deps on your end as what I had on the workbench
trinque: most of "will it boot" sits with the kernel config anyway
diana_coman: <asciilifeform> as i understand this will be the first field test outside of his bench. <- smg is an ice breaker of all sorts, what can I tell you
asciilifeform: trinque: i'ma revv it up with my current dulap kernel, customer can reconfig as desired

ben_vulpes: !!up hobotrinque
deedbot: hobotrinque voiced for 30 minutes.
hobotrinque: removing swap is totally fine by me. musl gcc-4 would not build on gcc-6
asciilifeform: hobotrinque: so theoretically this should be fixable when we bolt on ave1's gcc as the initial binary, aha ?
asciilifeform: for nao, i'ma go with what trinque gave.

hobotrinque: cool deal. bye for now
asciilifeform: ty hobotrinque .
ben_vulpes: !!down hobotrinque
asciilifeform: there's a coupla things obviously missing from the alpha cuntoo, e.g. my anti-poetteringolade ban mask, make flags for actually using the 32 cpus of the box, possibly other things. but i'ma let diana_coman add these at her leisure, box will be delivered with what is as close as possible to trinque's original item ( i'ma config the nic and that's it )
asciilifeform: it will also need ave1's gcc/gnat
asciilifeform: if diana_coman wants any of these things prior to delivery, plz to let asciilifeform know today !

phf: asciilifeform: do you use freetype on your boxes?
asciilifeform: phf: the ones with xorg -- yes
phf: what about poppler?
asciilifeform: afaik nowhere
asciilifeform: possibly on the oldest boxen, i'ma have to look
asciilifeform: phf: why ?
phf: just curious, i'm trying to figure out where to draw the line on hairshirts. postscript pulls poppler for its pdf backend (so does latex, etc. but i'm not even going there)
phf: *ghostscript rather
phf: i think we might've discussed how all these utility libraries (particularly freedesktop ones) are the holes through which the darkness comes. poppler is one of them, a fork of venerable xpdf it is now everywhere where pdf manipulation is done, naturally with no way to turn of said manipulation when need be
asciilifeform: phf: afaik there does not currently exist anything like a hygienic latex or ghostscript recipe
asciilifeform: ( neither belongs on server, so i've not put much attention in it as of yet )
phf: i'm unconvinced there can be such a thing as hygienic latex, possibly there can be ghostscript if you pull out the pdf support (?)
diana_coman: asciilifeform, the ban mask and flags for using the 32 cpus of the box seem to me absolutely needed as a minimum; mind adding them ?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ban mask seems to already be in trinque's recipe ( i'ma add the missing flag ) ; make -j32 i will add.
diana_coman: and then I read next line, lol
asciilifeform: thing is still building various proggies , but oughta be ready later today.
asciilifeform: ( prolly wouldn't hurt to put a '# of cpus' param in trinque's script itself, in the chroot-making step, would speed up the actual bringup of cuntoo boxen considerably )
asciilifeform: (as it is, it is happening ~32x slower than could)
asciilifeform: aaaand grrrrrr asciilifeform realizes that he neglected to remove trinque's 'console to serial port only' thing.
mircea_popescu: from experience, girl-girl relationships have two states : miffed, or muffed.
asciilifeform: box is 1) wedged on boot , at 'booting kernel' or some unknowable later point 2) i cannot reset it from here , will need interactive help from BingoBoingo , and not once but several times ( if permitted to boot into trinque's cuntoo, and no worky, needs reset )

asciilifeform: phf also documented some other corruptions of latex in recent decade, but the details currently escape me, iirc in the log somewhere
mircea_popescu: breaking latex out of the evil linux clutches may actually be a worthy thing.
mircea_popescu: also, ABOLISH BETTER!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: conceivably latex can be cured. iirc phf has a slow-burning march in that direction.
asciilifeform: at the very minimum, would need some way to actually use ( display, print ? ) the thing that it outputs.
asciilifeform: the obvious headache being , that there does not currently exist anything resembling a sane format that it could shit.
mircea_popescu: yes well.
mircea_popescu: the sooner i don't have to hear pdf anymore the better.
mircea_popescu: fucktarded format possibly only paralleled in sheer idiocy by "youtube video"
mircea_popescu: contents, too, but that's a different discussion.
asciilifeform: in the '80s, sony (yes) tried to make a latex that natively writes to a screen. ('sony news' workstation). i dunno how well it worked, they got out of comp biznis..
mircea_popescu: inb4 phf misreads "pdf"
asciilifeform: subj is perennially fascinating to asciilifeform , how all of the folx with actually promising ideas re comp, withered away and died in '80s, leaving crapple & microshit.
asciilifeform: the schoolboy explanation, 'money went with ibm/microshit', dun hold water, xerox had ~infinite moneys, ditto texas instruments ( 1 of the largest semiconductor houses of its time ) , made 0 diff
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: does there actually exist a 'youtube video format' or do they use the 'html5' horror ?
mircea_popescu: in practical terms, "youtube video" is an url, like p.bvulpes.com/paste/<code>.
asciilifeform: right, but there's also a layer of obscene hacks to make the actual compressed frames ride somehow atop http etc.
mircea_popescu: that's the whole fuckign thing. and it was a primary driver in the mind breakage of the 00s, and deeply related to practical issues such as http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-10#1833240

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i wouldn't dignify that shitshow with a mention, from the engineering pov. everyone involved i know of is deeply ashamed of their participation.
asciilifeform: it is worse than mircea_popescu likely fathoms; asciilifeform suspects that the bandwidth for lolcat watchers to watch the lolcats is 100% bezzle-powered, there does not exist anything like a +ev model for pushing video to all-comers

asciilifeform: currently i am not able to make use of trinque's builder ( even though i fed it my kernel config verbatim ) as it does not handle the building and installation of the ramdisk where modules live ( dulap kernel is not presently cleansed of modulism )
asciilifeform: however the box is online at 184.108.40.206 & ready for cuntoo userland's alpha testing . ( 1st thing you will want to do is prolly to install ave1's gnat . )
asciilifeform: diana_coman ( or mircea_popescu ) plox to gpggram a ssh pubkey
asciilifeform: * trinque's ~kernel~ builder << to be specific
asciilifeform brb in ~10min
asciilifeform: all in all this was quite a bit! closer to an automatic process than asciilifeform expected ! nifty piece of work, trinque . ( yes it had typo , and a few minor uglies i'll comment on later, but overall -- worx , ~unmodified, or at least would if i had a fully demodularized kernel )
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo : tomorrow morning , plox to visit the cellar and carefully remove the ipkvm from the box, and cut mains to the ipkvm; also remove the usb stick from said box.
asciilifeform: ( if diana_coman indicates today that she wants to play with kernels, naturally leave kvm in )
asciilifeform: i'ma bbl in about 1hr.
mod6: Gentlemen, nice work!
BingoBoingo: Fuck "todo bien"
BingoBoingo: It's not human language, it's fucking birdsong
mod6: Lords and Ladies of The Most Serene Republic, my personal node is again fully sync'd and chugging along. I have re-added it to the list of advertised republican nodes.
asciilifeform: congrats mod6
asciilifeform: ty for the arms- and leg-work BingoBoingo
asciilifeform: mod6: given the hour, i suspect that our customer is asleep , so s.mg-on-cuntoo will prolly happen tomorrow.
mod6: werd, thanks for the hard-work & update tho asciilifeform
asciilifeform: hey BingoBoingo , does this box have FG ? i dun see a /dev/ttyUSB0
asciilifeform: this is problem; customer ordered FG.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: disregard earlier req to pull kvm & stick.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: and when you wake up, plox to check the connections.
asciilifeform: aaaactually nm... 1s
asciilifeform copies over /lib/modules/*
mod6: that fix it?
asciilifeform: oughta, 1s
mod6: np, take your time.
asciilifeform: ok worx !!
mod6: :] nice work Sir!
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: let's still hold on pulling kvm & stick until customer blesses the box.
asciilifeform: mod6: when she does, plox to invoice diana_coman & co for subscription.
mod6: my pleasure.
mod6: one question that I was thinking about today... I know we've been over this a few times before... but did Pizarro ever put in a formal order for say, 100 more FGs?
mod6: perhaps I just need to do some log searching. feel free to tell me just to hit the logs.
asciilifeform: mod6: there are not currently any moar FGs to be had .
asciilifeform: aside from danielpbarron's
mod6: right, but I had thought that perhaps s.nsa was gonna have smore baked, if there was a formal order for moarar.
asciilifeform: mod6: there is a design for lyso crystal next-gen FG, but not yet baked.
asciilifeform: ( oughta be good for 1MB/s+ )
asciilifeform: and, conceivably we might bake moar classic FG.
asciilifeform: i'd really rather not, tho, they are extremely labour-intensive to test, on acct of the very modest speed of entropy generation.
asciilifeform: i'd also like to be rid of xilinx sooner rather than later.
mod6: sure. 1MB/s would be amazing considering we're currently running ~7k/s
mod6: fair enough then.
asciilifeform: currently pizarro has substantially moar FG than it has machines.
mod6: I think we've got enough to get us by for the time being. but if we do a rockchip order of 96 or whatever, then we're gonna be short by something like 60. (given each rc customer would take like 1 fg eac)
asciilifeform: incidentally, BingoBoingo , ben_vulpes , what's the status of the usb2ttl cable crate ?
asciilifeform: that was the bottleneck earlier
asciilifeform: meanwhile i'ma take a bit of break, will check back 1ce moar before sleep.
mod6: np, have a good night.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: sitting in customs with the ssds
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> hey BingoBoingo , does this box have FG ? i dun see a /dev/ttyUSB0 << I installed 2
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> ty for the arms- and leg-work BingoBoingo << No problem
