diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-12#1895610 -> fwiw the thing is..still running given the full set of loops
a111: Logged on 2019-02-12 23:41 mircea_popescu: i'm still waiting for diana_coman to return.
diana_coman: I think a gradual approach (i.e. run it & record results gradually increasing the number of loops) might be useful meanwhile
diana_coman: so I'll post the testing code with full set of loops in a bit and then go and set up another run too
diana_coman: basic test including serpent + test project with full set of loops : ossasepia.com/available_resources/ljmp_test.tar
asciilifeform: diana_coman: day+ ?! is this just 1 shot of benchmark, or many ?
asciilifeform: imho whole day is a bit of overkill if for ~one~ shot..
diana_coman: asciilifeform, one! and look here at times: 1 loop -> 0.000168893 s ; 2 loops -> 0.007213758 s ; 3 loops -> 0.351611073 s ; 4 loops -> 17.74 s ; 5 loops-> 879.95 s
diana_coman: hence my original only 3 loops really; but mircea_popescu asked for the full set of 23 loops so there it is, still running
diana_coman: for completeness: the set of data above is from a different machine hence a bit faster than those of yest
diana_coman: 5 loops is already 15 minutes and ftr 6 loops is still running on that machine as we speak - by the looks of it, it'll be more than 1 hour
diana_coman: it's of course not exactly surprising, given that one goes from 50 serpent executions to 50mn rather quickly
mircea_popescu: diana_coman darn, i utterly miscalculated it. does

mircea_popescu: i might be the weakest person in the world for basic arithmetics.
diana_coman: ah; why 10 mod 4 and not ..hm, 6?
diana_coman: uhm, 2
mircea_popescu: diana_coman idea was to go twice per loop, rather than 1nce. 2 will go in too many times still
diana_coman: ah, so if a mod 4 = 0 you mean
diana_coman: right
mircea_popescu: yeah
diana_coman: from 1 to 10; if mod 4; got it
mircea_popescu is very sorry about wasting a day. coulda done 30 seconds of figuring numbers BEFORE just as well.
diana_coman: a to j aka 10 loops from 1 to 10 only and then with if mod 4 -> 0.000855 s (no long jmp)

mircea_popescu: diana_coman seems it stabilizes after 3 loops or so, if you look, it's within a few % with .007s and pretty much there at 0.35s
mircea_popescu: diana_coman try whole 23 loops, same 1 to 10 mod 4 plox ?
diana_coman will try
mircea_popescu: turns out a serpent takes about 2.8 microseconds.
diana_coman: 1.259 s
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think her work above provides us with some useful data : it turns out it is reasonable to expect timings converge for measured intervals of at least 1/3 of a second, on the basis of the above.

lobbesbot: mircea_popescu: 3.00168991089e-07
mircea_popescu: there's something amiss here.
diana_coman: because the clock thing is not very precise; on 4 runs of same thing I got: 1.25, 1.27, 1.29, 1.28
mircea_popescu: diana_coman the problem is this : on the basis of this last run, we're estimating serpent to take 0.3 microseconds.
mircea_popescu: on the basis of the previous timings you reported, we estimated it ~2.8 microseconds
mircea_popescu: this is degree of magnitude off, somehow. wanna walk through the math with me ?
diana_coman: and both of them are likely to be more due to measurement error
diana_coman: wait, what?
diana_coman: 0.3 vs 2.8? ugh
mircea_popescu: except the other set converged, look : 3.37786e-06 2.8855032e-06 2.812888584e-06 2.8384e-06 2.81584e-06
mircea_popescu: for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 loops respectively as reported in http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-13#1895666
a111: Logged on 2019-02-13 14:24 diana_coman: asciilifeform, one! and look here at times: 1 loop -> 0.000168893 s ; 2 loops -> 0.007213758 s ; 3 loops -> 0.351611073 s ; 4 loops -> 17.74 s ; 5 loops-> 879.95 s
mircea_popescu: is this faux convergence then ?
diana_coman: can't quite tell tbh
mircea_popescu: ok, but indulge me :
diana_coman will need to leave for about 1 hr in ~5min time but will read
mircea_popescu: we are currently entering the loop twice, and we enter a total of 22 loops. therefore the number of times serpent is run is 2 ^ 22.
mircea_popescu: a ok.
diana_coman: that much sounds good

asciilifeform tried to unravel wtf was found here
asciilifeform: *tries
asciilifeform: diana_coman, mircea_popescu : all of above is still just the baseline (no longjmpism) case ?
mircea_popescu: yes.
asciilifeform: based only on above, i suspect a case of http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-10#1886261
a111: Logged on 2019-01-10 14:08 asciilifeform: aaand to round off : it vanished on the test box also. culprit appears to have been a running raid-verify job...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform basically, we found i can't math ; that aside, we found that in one context serpent takes ~3us, and in another ~0.3us.
asciilifeform: diana_coman , when come back, plox to briefly describe the box
mircea_popescu: do me a favour first and let's nail the numbers down. so, for 1 to 100 if mod 2 results in the loop being run 50 times ? or 49 ?
mircea_popescu: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/YaMpS/?raw=true << code snippet.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 50
asciilifeform: how else
asciilifeform: there are 50 even #s b/w 1 and 100 incl.
mircea_popescu: alright. and if there's 22 for loops, this means the correct count of "how many times serpent is run" is 50 ^ 22 then ?
asciilifeform: in the pasted snippet, each outer loop multiplies the shots of inner by 50
asciilifeform: so yes if you make 22, then 50 ^ 22
mircea_popescu: so then what the fuck.
asciilifeform: that's quite a few, even if you had nuffin in the middle of it
mircea_popescu: right. point being, she did 1 to 5 loop sets of that, and the values converged.
mircea_popescu: then they suddenly diverged by order of magnitude.
asciilifeform: i'ma guess box ground to a halt during the 5-loops run, for a spell
asciilifeform: ( why -- cannot say until diana_coman returns with brief description of the irons )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally and unrelatedly, since i'm fixing this other article : do you happen to recall the trilema piece where "middle age crisis" ie, dood getting rid of older wife hooking up with younger girl is explained in terms of "well, she won't be as fucking annoying" ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: possibly was 'the peak of insanity'
asciilifeform doesn't like benchmarks where 1 shot takes moar than coupla min, for the reason that unix box is a shitfest, liable to decide 'hey nao is the time to munge the fs' etc. and suddenly eat cpu for multiple min, whenever
asciilifeform: if yer proggy takes >=12h, this is certain to happen, it'll run up against cron
asciilifeform: ( depending on what you got in there )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform note that a set of up to 200s converged, and then a 1 1/4 s item diverged.
mircea_popescu: http://trilema.com/2011/barbati-si-copile/ << found it ; was ro which is why it had "disappeared"
asciilifeform: ha
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is why i like 'run 9000 shots, and discard outliers' (granted this only applies when the item is expected to go in constant time, goes without saying)
asciilifeform brb,teatime
mircea_popescu: anyway, she'll be back momentarily and we'll dig into it smore.
mircea_popescu: did i ever link the obvious http://trilema.com/2018/post-malone/#selection-79.0-205.38 answer to the obvious if commonplace http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-03#1884205 idiocy ? i think not, and it'd be a waste.
a111: Logged on 2019-01-03 19:24 stratum: Right now, for the billions, I think it is probably better than nothing, just like easily popped household locks.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in unrelated lulz, http://trilema.com/2014/website-thou-art-lol/#selection-423.92-423.100 (believe it or not, "affirmed" is a term of art in the context, that's how cuntmagic works, by "affirmation".)

diana_coman: mircea_popescu, I think it was a mis-communication really
diana_coman: I got stuck here in traffic earlier too, hence my being late, sorry;
diana_coman: anyways, back to it: for one thing you were comparing there numbers from different machines and I get the impression you got the "4 runs" in the 2nd report to mean different loops while they were not (it was same thing, repeated)
diana_coman goes to write this down properly alreayd
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, I found the key misunderstanding there (in addition to comparing different machines and all that): the 1.25value is when serpent is fully optimised for time i.e. it goes from ~8s to 1.25 for full 22 loops 1..10, mod 4; sorry for the confusion there, I was still in exploration mode.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: plox clarify what means 'fully optimized for time' here
diana_coman: Serpent has pragma Optimize(Time)
diana_coman: gprbuild accepts levels of optimization via -O flag
asciilifeform: aaa
diana_coman: with no optimization (or -O0 iirc) it's ~8s; with -O3 it's 1.25s
asciilifeform: i assumed you used same flags for all shots
asciilifeform: ( ftr all 'canonical' ffa tests are built with o2 : http://btcbase.org/patches/ffa_ch16_miller_rabin.kv/tree/ffa/libffa/ffa.gpr#L56 )
diana_coman: at that specific shot I was exploring esp given the previous issue of "too long time"
diana_coman: anyways, I'll compile the dataset and publish it in a bit
asciilifeform: historically i found that o3 is moar or less unusable for benchmarking anyffin, it risks to 'optimize away' unexpected pieces ( for instance, quite possibly your loop-and-mod-2 )
diana_coman: bc exploring I went http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-13#1895742 and I was getting confused too but anyways

diana_coman: t shows that it is looking for them in the wrong place and more specifically in the place where they were on the previous system where the working gnat was built! so hm, where and why does it store that path and how do I point it correctly?
diana_coman: I'm trying to rebuild it because current build doesn't have sjlj

BingoBoingo: More to be done on the website, but ready to move on to writing that email to the dissidents for asciilifeform
asciilifeform: diana_coman: this is quite puzzling, esp. since i've built ave1's gnat on 1 box, and since copied to handful of others, on each into an entirely diff dir
asciilifeform: ( and all run )
diana_coman: the script to rebuild ran?
asciilifeform: this, not tested except on orig
diana_coman: or gnat itself? because gnat itself runs /ran perfectly fine, yes
asciilifeform: aa hrm.
diana_coman: hence only now I ran into this puzzler

asciilifeform: diana_coman: this may even be the culprit behind ( still unresolved afaik ) http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-03#1820460

asciilifeform: ( asciilifeform was not able to build a working x64 gnat from the arm64 gnat )
diana_coman: I guess until now I always built ave1's gnat on a machine that had adacore's gnat installed with all the paths to libs like that quite standard so possibly that's why it never failed
asciilifeform: defo sounds like 1 or moar of his built bins aint static
diana_coman: it seems to me that it's just a path/configure that remains /is carried over from where the gnat was built
diana_coman: specifically, here's an example (with the path marked by me for clarity): build/build-bootstrap/gcc-4.9.adacore2016/build1/mpc/src/libmpc.la:dependency_libs=' OLD_PATH/lib/libgmp.la NEW_PATH_CORRECT/lib/libgmp.la'

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: after mircea_popescu nitpicks, perhaps this oughta be used as a template for others
diana_coman needs some sleep
asciilifeform: aa its sleep time in diana_comanistan aint it
diana_coman: at least there are no more surprises of huge differences in timings; but I'd still test also with some exception handling since that's supposed to slow sjlj down
asciilifeform: as i understand that's the 1 thing that's expected to slow
diana_coman: asciilifeform, it's been a bit of a long day too, sorry; strictly speaking you are in fact right there: that line compares them yes,if only to stress that "ofc they are different"
asciilifeform: diana_coman: sleep, and i expect the output will come out before you wake up. meanwhile i'ma see if i can figure out wtf re the paths.
diana_coman: the output?
asciilifeform: of the remaining runs
asciilifeform: ( or are these on hold pending gnat rebuild ? )
diana_coman: on hold atm since a. for sjlj on smg.test yes, need gnat rebuild b. for the rest it's unclear if it's worth to run or which ones so rather pending mircea_popescu feedback
asciilifeform: aaa ok
diana_coman: re paths I suppose a simple grep -r "libmpc" would show perhaps duplicates if nothing else?
diana_coman: i.e. where/if the trouble is not somehow just on my machine (though I got it on 2 machines...)
asciilifeform: the only hit is x86_64-linux-musl/share/info/mpc.info -- a readme

mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/BoTML/?raw=true << Ok, so after installing Cuntoo, I did what I said I'd do, which was test editing the append section and throwing a UUID in there instead of 'root=/dev/sda3'. It didn't work, I did get a kern dump.
mod6: I think that I might be on the right track here though, and I did try a few other things after reading some documentation. For instance, after the above, I changed /etc/fstab to use only UUIDs instead of '/dev/sda{1,2,3}', and then tried that. Same problem essentialy. I also found about 'PARTUUID', which is supposed to help in certain circumstances. Nothing has worked yet...
asciilifeform: mod6: does it boot if /dev/sdb3 ?
mod6: No Sir.
asciilifeform: same type of barf ?
mod6: Then I got on the track that perhaps i do need to have an initramfs.
mod6: Yes.
mircea_popescu: mod6 is the disk hanging off internal port or usb port ?
mircea_popescu: ie, sata or usb ?
mod6: So I went to build one, but that was barfing on me. Which lead me to find this kernel option 'CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL=y'. Which would help me complete the build of the initramfs. http://www.mod6.net/cuntoo-blog-1/genkern/genkern.jpg
mod6: But I keep getting failures that say "Failed to compile the "all" target. No matter what I do it seems.
mod6: mircea_popescu: It's SATA.
mod6: my disk is a WD 250Gb SSD SATA
mod6: So perhaps im kindof on the right track - use UUIDs where I can, and build an initramfs... however, haven't had a lot of success with building the initramfs yet. I may have to fight through that. But that's the latest update.
mircea_popescu: from what i gather actually setting the correct path (ie, /sda3 or w/e it actually is) should really do it. i don't expect you can just unilaterally set uuids, gotta make them work from the other end too first.
mod6: Oh, i totally felt the same way.
mod6: The days leading up to the blog post, i used nothing but names: /dev/sda{1,2,3} and eschewed UUIDs totally.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it'll do it , supposing that kernel actually sees the disk ( whether it does, is not obv, observe that it dun come up in the kernel barfola )
mod6: But since that was an utter failure, I'm just trying something different because of /dev/disk/by-uuid/ or whatever it is.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform right.
asciilifeform: mod6: seems like you may have build a kernel that dun see your sata chipset.
asciilifeform: mod6: bring up a working barbarian linux on that box and lsmod -v
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it'd be a lot more possible if the same kernel on same machine didn't boot before.
asciilifeform: see what it wants
asciilifeform: waitasec is it actually test with old kernel ??
mircea_popescu: i thought so ?
mod6: certainly possible. seems totally wacky to me that the same kernel config would boot gentoo perfectly, but not cuntoo. note in the wotpaste above that I copied in my /usr/src/linux/.config from gentoo directly and build that config.
asciilifeform: observe that 'old config' != 'old kernel' if the src tree were swapped
mircea_popescu: hm
mod6: Right, well, cuntoo expands all of those things and build it, you just feed it a config. So if there is something that is "off" about my config with some other slightly different source version, then that might be a part of it.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo "In light of the outlaw status being forced upon your organization, it is advisable to begin to operate accordingly." << too bulky contentless. that's supposed to be the closer neh.
asciilifeform: mod6: if you were to take this exact thing, and stick it onto a usb , and then it boots when '/dev/sda3' -- then you will know that the above is it
asciilifeform: ( and you'll then need to find what yer sata is hanging off, and rebuild with it baked in )
mod6: Ok, so you're saying: Do all of the above steps, but instead of using a SATA SSD, inflate cuntoo onto a USB stick?
asciilifeform: supposing, that is, you didn't also manage to produce a kernel that dun see yer usb chip
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: ty, will try lightening up the payload copy for mass distribution
mod6: I did look through the makemenuconfig, there are a lot of added in USB drivers. however, there was one option that I noticed that I should look hard at (all when trying to do the genkernel for different reasons), which is the Intel USB Drivers.
mod6: So, if I take this route, I'll have to make sure those options are turned on for sure.
asciilifeform: all i can see from the paste is that the thing dun see any disks at all.
mod6: I know right!
mod6: It's wild.
mod6: Totally is blowing my hair back.
asciilifeform: mod6: where didja get the kernel srcs for this build ?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo gotta have a great hook.
mod6: Which is why, in the first place, I thought I had a bad SSD. Which is why I ended up buying a second one just to be sure.
mod6: asciilifeform: everything comes with trinque's cuntoo afaik
mod6: His thing has the stage3 in there iirc.
asciilifeform: it's entirely conceivable that his are moar recent than mod6's older, working tree, and breaks support for mod6's card
mod6: Could be, a solid way to try to prove that is the USB Stick route. Because, I'm not super well versed in SATA kernel drivers.
asciilifeform: ( linux is notorious for 'oh hey we added a new required flag and ha even tho you set x, y, z, device d no longer gets its module because fuckyou ' )
mod6: yup, liqshit.
mod6: it's like, fuck this, I want a "GIVE_ME_EVERYTHING_YOUVE_GOT_WHORE" flag that build every driver known.
asciilifeform: for so long as we're under 'iron babel' and errybody has 9000 types of unique machine, we're stuck with this horror
mircea_popescu: i guess. honestly, i'd expect to see logs reflecting failure to init sata if that were the case.
asciilifeform: mod6: you get a 500MB kernel then, lol
mod6: Shit, 500Mb no problem.
mod6: at least I could figure out wtf and try to pair it down later.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: failure to init caused by 'i have nfi what is this chip' is silent on linux.
mod6: instead of 6900 reboots
asciilifeform: ~why~ is q to ask torvalds when you nail him to the cross, not me
mircea_popescu: i thought some peripherals whined.
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: only if 'vendor id' etc ~matched~ and still no dice when init.
mircea_popescu: hm
asciilifeform: this is how it behaved, from the 1st published kernel and to present day
asciilifeform: silently ignores 'unknown' irons
mircea_popescu: yes, but what i mean, if it manages to build with no sata/no ide it says ; similarily if no netcard ; and i dun recall what else.
mircea_popescu: possibly nokbd ?
asciilifeform: it dun give a damn
asciilifeform: simply barfs like depicted in mod6's paste -- 'where the fuck is / ? halted'
mircea_popescu: my vague memories not fresh enough to pursue this line.
asciilifeform: mine unfortunately quite fresh.
asciilifeform: bsd etc. behave similarly.
asciilifeform: 'unix philosophy'(tm)(r) !!
mod6: The funny part is, it could jsut be this one really obnoxious setting that I'm missing; I feel like it was that way back when I did gentoo in '15.
asciilifeform: fail silently and set house on fire.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-13#1895868 << we don't so much care, seeing how we don't intend to have exceptions but exceptionally. if the thing crashes ever, your problems will be in excess of 99, but none of them that "it took one half milisecond extra for burning relic to make it back to earth"
a111: Logged on 2019-02-13 21:59 diana_coman: at least there are no more surprises of huge differences in timings; but I'd still test also with some exception handling since that's supposed to slow sjlj down
mircea_popescu: mod6 it seems rather likely.
mod6: *nod* it's something dumb as fuck
asciilifeform: it comes, in this particular case, from the people who actually do http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-14#1896130 -- e.g. shituntu -- whose boot log would be 9000km long if ~every~ device that was simply not found, produced an eggog
a111: Logged on 2019-02-14 01:56 mod6: it's like, fuck this, I want a "GIVE_ME_EVERYTHING_YOUVE_GOT_WHORE" flag that build every driver known.
mod6: i just have no idea what.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not every device lol.
asciilifeform: erry module that doesn't find its device, i meant
mircea_popescu: a. hm.
mircea_popescu: well it couldn't come from THEM, linux existed long before they.
asciilifeform: was always built like this, tho. module that doesn't find its device, in some cases reports (e.g. in mod6's log, the raid) but usually says nuffin.
mircea_popescu: right ; but i expect the sata is like the raid, not like the soundblaster.
mircea_popescu: that's all really.
mircea_popescu: ie, from a cursory look at his published logs, my impression was that the kernel has sata just fine, but the disk's not plugged in the config-set hole or somesuch.
mircea_popescu: now, ianae, so.
asciilifeform: here, have a line from a working box : [ 3.129745] sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0
asciilifeform: ^ when finds a sata .
asciilifeform: notice there aint one in his.
mod6: fair enough
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i see 0.971934] SCSI subsystem initialized ?
asciilifeform: all he's got, is a [ 0.971934] SCSI subsystem initialized , which happens when kernel brought up regardless of whether any module matches up to working disk hanger
mircea_popescu: ah. well ok then.
mircea_popescu: this is a good point ; basically i misread that line.
mod6: So next mission is to use a clean USB drive, and inflate cuntoo onto that, and then try?
mod6: See, I kinda thought the SCSI subsystem thing meant that SATA was ready.
asciilifeform: mod6: quickest way to learn wtf, i suspect, is to dump the thing bitwise onto a usb, and boot that, then lsmod -v and diff with your known working set's lsmod -v output.
asciilifeform: mod6: nope , that line gets printed if kernel compiled with scsi option set, regardless of whether any card.
mod6: so, `dd` the entire cuntoo ssd disk onto a usb, then attempt to boot the USB, and then do the lsmod diff between the USB cuntoo and the SSD cuntoo?
asciilifeform: correct
mod6: alrighty then.
asciilifeform: i expect you'll need a root=/dev/sda3 in the kernel cmdline and similar in fstab.
mod6: Might take a bit, but I'll begin work on that tomorrow-ish. Should have something to look at hopefully by Friday evening-ish. I'll inflate an entirely fresh cuntoo.
asciilifeform brb,meatsystems
mod6: I want it ~clean~ and not munged up by whatever other attemps and genkernel fuckery.
mod6: Ok, thank you gentlemen. I appreciate the insight & help.
mod6 f00d
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-14#1896084 << what is the reasoning behind this?
a111: Logged on 2019-02-14 01:41 mod6: Then I got on the track that perhaps i do need to have an initramfs.
trinque: there's all this metaphoric content without rooting to anything, which makes it hard to track where your head's at to have what with to help
trinque: initramfs is used when the kernel can't mount the root fs without using a program to do something complicated first, i.e. loading firmware, unpacking a squashfs in an embedded device, etc
trinque: the only reason initramfs is used on personal machines is that the users have been lost to sloth and "can't be expected" to build own kernel
trinque: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-14#1896088 << this is precisely backwards; doing that is the right answer to ^ and ~obviates~ the need for an initramfs for the firmware purpose
a111: Logged on 2019-02-14 01:42 mod6: So I went to build one, but that was barfing on me. Which lead me to find this kernel option 'CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL=y'. Which would help me complete the build of the initramfs. http://www.mod6.net/cuntoo-blog-1/genkern/genkern.jpg
trinque: this is precisely what I do, and I load all manner of "liquishit" hardware (like amd GPUs) without initramfs
trinque: I highly encourage you to not accidentally haul in an artifact of "user can't be expected to" into cuntoo
trinque: very glad to see your experiments with using the UUID labels btw; I'm soon to haul that into the script. I do want to remind that this won't change the genesis that is produced by the bootstrapper.
trinque: I still want to know whether your genesis.vpatch matches mine, and this is at least as important as whether it produced a bootable drive
mod6: So the thinking behind initramfs: 1. I have one on the working gentoo on that box, 2. from what I've read that can help with various kernel related problems
mod6: I'm not a "kernel hacker guy", so I've been down these roads based on trying to emulate what I see working in my other machines, and various online posts in teh gentoo forums and others.
trinque: so "because I have this amulet" I'm not interested in what trinque is trying to teach me about what the amulet is?
mod6: You have to understand, that I'm not trying to piss you off here. I don't even look at it on this level.
mod6: I'm just a guy, trying to boot the thing so I can test something totally not related to kernel mods.
mod6: If going through all the motions to try to figure out what the actual hardware problem is, and it'll get me across the finish line, great. I'll do that, but I think you're acting as if I'm somehow trying to violate you.
trinque: my telling you that you're doing so incorrectly is not an emotion
trinque: nor would "mod6 now knows about initramfs and what they're for" do anything but set you up to understand later tools I have for the republic that actually use the things properly
mod6: trinque: I have little clue of what I'm doing. I'm just trying to solve it, in the only ways that I can.
trinque: do you recall how to interact with the logs? I responded to some lines of yours there. what of them?
mod6: Sometimes that means taking a shot in the dark, even if it's misguided from the point of view of someone who knows better.
mod6: Trying to make an educated guess, or educated experiment I suppose. Are you disappointed that I tried to make the initramfs? If so, why does this bother you so?
mod6: I'm the fool here, not you.
trinque: eh dude, explaining to you what's an initramfs is not calling you a fool.
trinque: this is the entirety of the problem
mod6: Maybe we're talking past eachother a bit here. Anyway, I don't know much about these things. I'm kinda learning bit by bit as I go... it all certainly doesn't "fit in head" or whatever yet.
trinque: lemme come at it another way. suppose your result here, absent my help, appears to be "this hardware only boots with initramfs"
trinque: what is the consequence of that?
mod6: well, that's a win for me, the only thing that sucks is you don't get to make your improvements from my own experience.
mod6: But not matter what happens, I'll be sure to provide you with any information that I can provide. Who knows, maybe this is a shit system or some such.
trinque: so your goal is to have a computer for mod6 on the back of my work, and if it incidentally helps get the cuntoo thing done, w/e
trinque: since I have a fetish for futility, lemme press on
trinque: so now you need an initramfs; what are you going to use to build it?
trinque: genkernel? dracut? ... ?
mod6: I don't quite see it that way, I'm just trying to do Foundation work, that does overlap with the Cuntoo work.
trinque: what's the dependency chain of what you chose? how much additional weight do you bring into the genesis.vpatch for portage?
mod6: So if you can glean soemthing off of my exp. that's great. I just didn't view the problems with my pos box to be super helpful to you.
mod6: Maybe it is, maybe misjudged.
trinque: and by the way, note how easily "I did not read this thing; I just want to use" bloats the holy tree of meaning is illustrated here
mod6: I posted a jpg of the beginning of my genkernel. Basically there is another similar command to make the initramfs. Both end in failure that I spoke about above.
trinque: so then. a core claim I'm making is *this is all I have ever needed to boot a sane linux on commodity hardware for years*
mod6: But alf helped me to realize that there is a way we can still try to diagnose this issue by trying to boot off of USB stick, so I'm going to attempt that first before any more initramfs stuff.
mod6: I'm not sure that I get your meaning.
mod6: Are you saying that your claim is that is what I'm saying, or is that what you are saying?
trinque: I'm saying this is the aim in my building this item.
mod6: Anyway, do you agree with what alf has asked me to try next?
trinque: that we have something to muntz further, and I'll strongly oppose any argument to ADD to it without hard justification
trinque: recall the work with trb, and how much better a patch that removes is than one that adds.
mod6: Ok, I see this as distinctly differnt.
mod6: I'm not asking you to add my posbox foibles into your config. trb/ada/musl that I want to test on there doesn't care what kernel modules are loaded.
trinque: I don't even think your box is a piece of shit.
trinque: any more than my amd zenwhatever thing with 30 firmware to load before GPU will work properly
mod6: Ok, even if its not. I'm just saying I'd never expect anyone to follow the initramfs thing or any other thing. You know way more about what is kosher in gentoo/cuntoo than I do.
trinque: I very much want you on an actual cuntoo because one of the immediate needs is a trb ebuild.
mod6: Cool, yeah, that too.
mod6: no worries, we'll get there.
mod6: I'll try to do this the way that #t sees fit. but, on my own, left to my own decision making (as I don't know much about these things) might be a bit askew.
mod6: Like I said, didn't mean to offend in any sort of manner. I just got excited, thinking I was on the right track, and tried to get the thing up and running. I mean, shit, it's been like 13 or 14 days now of reboots, inflations, etc.
trinque: 0% offended man, I'll ask you to stop guessing at my state.
mod6: Anything that even remotely looks like the finish line seems like a win -- even if it's not.
trinque: even willing to look at your box with you sometime
mod6: lol, not trying to guess your state. your language seems strong, so I sense irritation.
mircea_popescu: he's from texas, they just talk in an accent there.
trinque: the accent is yelling!
mod6: lol. I'm gonna have to do that when reading trinque. Just add accent.
mod6: i suspect that if we did have a beer irl, some of this would be cleared up.
mod6: anyway, im here for you baby.
mod6: and if alf's way seems like a sane thing to try, that's what I'm working on now. otherwise, I'm all ears and can adjust as you see fit.
trinque: word
trinque: proposal is that you investigate what initramfs is, which will lead to an answer on why one worked on the box you had before, which will lead to why you don't need one
mod6: ok, but it is understood that we're talking about the same box though, right?
trinque: yeah, comparing a boot with initramfs to one without would be a fine thing; even better would be for you to bake your own initramfs sometime with say busybox, and have the init script drop to a shell so you can see what it is
trinque: larger context here is I'm not eating a linux distribution by myself
trinque: RECRUITS NEEDED
mod6: ok.
mod6: *nod*
mod6: you know, at one point i did actually handroll an initramfs on cuntoo, at which point I updated the /etc/lilo.conf and when I booted, and it panic'd, it did drop me into a shell.
mod6: but I didn't really know what do with it.
mod6: so i just wiped the disk again and moved on.
mod6: but, I just followed some steps, I didn't know too much about what it was doing, or myself.
mod6: you know? I think learning about it is a fine thing, probably would make me understand the errors of my ways.
trinque is quite familiar with the impulse to torch the thing when it misbehaves, but it's not going to get us a distro we own.
mod6: I suppose there's some good wisdom in that. I wouldn't want mircea_popescu torch his trb if it does weird shit on a 'getinfo' either.
trinque: ftr there are loads of interesting uses for initramfsen; we will have tooling to make them, but it has to come absent the sin of the load-all-modules thing and "lemme go automatically mount whatever root I can find" and miles else
trinque: righto
mircea_popescu: initramfs seems the logical intermediate step to romware.
mircea_popescu: but a lot of this before we care about that.
trinque nods
mod6: Ok, starting small, I got you. I dunno where the fire is either -- I don't know why I'm in any sort of rush here.
mircea_popescu: in any case, on a sane system that's stable there's ~0 reason to have the CODE on disk.
mircea_popescu has been playing the same heroes 2 for 20 years now. if it were on chip it'd have hurt nothing.
mircea_popescu: not like i rebuild it every other week or w/e.
trinque: very little justification for writable root. I've fiddled with the CD burning too.
mircea_popescu: right. but for now, that'll lie as it fell.
