00:03:08 <elliott> loadlin can't load initramfses, right? :p
00:03:17 <elliott> Actually, does the bootloader have to be able to, if you embed it into the kernel?

00:12:21 -!- FireFly has quit (Quit: swatted to death).
00:17:56 <pikhq> The initramfs loading is identical to initrd loading from a bootloader point of view.
00:18:16 <elliott> pikhq: Right. But you can embed a .cpio directly into the kernel.
00:18:17 <pikhq> Also, if it's embedded in the kernel, the bootloader can be completely ignorant of it.
00:18:20 <elliott> Right.
00:18:43 <pikhq> The .cpio gets transformed into a .o with a symbol pointing to the .cpio.
00:19:01 <elliott> pikhq: How small can you get an ancient DOS floppy if you don't care whether it's usable at the command-line, just to run a program in autoexec?
00:19:09 <elliott> Because I'm thinking that http://busybox.net/~vda/linld/README.txt + DOS might be smaller than lilo.
00:20:07 <elliott> [ ] LINLD.COM 13-Sep-2004 13:11 5.7K
00:20:17 <elliott> So depending on how small I can get DOS...
00:20:19 <pikhq> Uh, IO.SYS + MSDOS.SYS + CONFIG.SYS (can be empty) + COMMAND.COM + AUTOEXEC.BAT (can be empty) is the minimal MS-DOS system.
00:20:43 <elliott> pikhq: AUTOEXEC.BAT would be "linld cl=blah" :P
00:21:00 <pikhq> IO.SYS is the DOS BIOS, MSDOS.SYS is the DOS kernel, and CONFIG.SYS is, of course, a config file.
00:21:01 <elliott> How big are IO.SYS + MSDOS.SYS + COMMAND.COM, roughly? Assume an old, smaller DOS.
00:21:07 <pikhq> Uh, *tiny*.
00:21:19 <elliott> pikhq: <100K?
00:21:58 <elliott> pikhq: Or, more concretely: Minimal DOS + 5.7K <=> minimal lilo installation?
00:22:24 <elliott> LILO appears to require a /boot partition.
00:22:32 <elliott> Whereas linld could just run from a DOS floppy.
00:23:01 <elliott> pikhq: (BTW, this is for a single-floppy Linux like you were trying to do.)
00:23:03 <pikhq> That might be true of modern DOS, even.
00:23:18 <elliott> "System is 480 kB" --Linux make
00:23:22 <elliott> It lacks some things though.
00:23:24 <elliott> Like VTs.
00:23:27 <elliott> Or block device support.
00:25:28 <elliott> pikhq: Another question: If I have kernel compression enabled, disable "Support initial ramdisks compressed using [blah]", and embed an initramfs... Will that initramfs get compressed?
00:25:33 <pikhq> Uh, FreeDOS, done minimally, is 112K...
00:25:53 <pikhq> You could probably get that down way smaller by removing some useless features.
00:25:59 <pikhq> (FAT32, LFN, tab completion)
00:26:01 <elliott> FreeDOS is pretty big :P
00:26:10 <elliott> <elliott> pikhq: Another question: If I have kernel compression enabled, disable "Support initial ramdisks compressed using [blah]", and embed an initramfs... Will that initramfs get compressed?
00:26:19 <pikhq> elliott: Yes.
00:26:30 <elliott> pikhq: Awesome.
00:26:34 <pikhq> elliott: The initramfs is just another object file in the kernel if it's embedded.

00:28:13 <elliott> WHERE IS ALL THE CODE
00:28:26 <pikhq> (a minimal FreeDOS, BTW, is: command.com, kernel.sys)
00:29:33 <pikhq> AHAHAH. Easy way to get that FreeDOS system down in size.
00:29:44 <pikhq> upx supports DOS executables.
00:30:02 <pikhq> Oh, BTW: you may want to leave that kernel uncompressed, and upx the kernel.

00:31:39 <pikhq> elliott: Yeah, asmutils is awesome.
00:32:08 <pikhq> No, *motherfucking awesome*.
00:32:13 <elliott> wget doesn't seem to work here :P But whatever!
00:32:31 <elliott> pikhq: Wait... if I have an initramfs, you won't be able to see the kernel, will you? X-D
00:33:01 <pikhq> elliott: ?
00:33:38 <elliott> pikhq: Because the kernel will be on the floppy.
00:33:41 <elliott> And there's no block device support.

00:35:31 <pikhq> Totally awesome.
00:36:06 <elliott> Oops, I forgot to put init in /sbin. Ehh... I can just say init=/bin/init.
00:36:30 <elliott> pikhq: I have all kernel printing disabled, so time to wait for a minute and hope I get a shell :P
00:37:09 <elliott> DIN'T WORK LOL... or I'm too impatient.
00:37:13 <elliott> I'll rebuild with printk so I can see shit.
00:38:19 <elliott> pikhq: Hmm... does init= actually affect the initramfs?
00:38:30 <elliott> Isn't that for the real root's init path?
00:40:47 <pikhq> With initramfs, init= gets passed to /init.
00:41:43 <elliott> Ah.
00:41:53 <elliott> pikhq: ...Maybe I should omit /bin, and just put everything in /. :D

16:49:27 <ais523> hi elliott
16:49:46 <ais523> also, do you really need support for more than one terminal?
16:49:53 <elliott> ais523: no, but xvi uses termcap
16:49:56 <elliott> so I have to have the library
16:50:00 <ais523> patch it so it doesn't
16:50:02 <elliott> and I figure the real termcap is smaller than terminfo's emulation of it

16:52:37 <nooga> elliott: i just wanted to say that you should try levee
16:53:05 <elliott> nooga: I'd already thought of levee, being the official David Parsons Stalker.
16:53:06 <ais523> elliott: most of the old DOS editors were smaller than 64KiB
16:53:11 <ais523> so they fit in a .COM file
16:53:16 <elliott> ais523: they ran on DOS, though
16:53:18 <elliott> not quite the same thing as linux :)
16:53:25 <elliott> sheesh, if I can't get a really tiny editor I'll write my own... in asm!
16:53:30 <elliott> maybe asmutils will accept it
16:53:50 <ais523> what features would you want?
16:54:17 <ais523> for me, the minimum for a usable editor is inserting letters, cursor movement, deleting letters via delete and backspace, and preserving indentation from one line to the next
16:54:26 <ais523> (I don't consider Notepad a usable editor as it lacks the last feature there)
16:55:01 <nooga> elliott: e3 ?
16:55:11 <elliott> ais523: the latter is useless bloat as far as flinix as concerned; you'll be editing, what, config files at the most
16:55:20 <elliott> ais523: I am not sure Flinix actually has a *use* :)
16:55:30 <elliott> ais523: but, uh, features I'd want:
16:55:38 <elliott> the basic : commands like w, o, q
16:55:48 <elliott> insert mode
16:55:49 <ais523> oh, I forgot about saving and quitting
16:55:50 <nooga> http://freshmeat.net/projects/virus/
16:55:57 <ais523> you could quit via SIGINT, but there should be a way to save
16:56:07 <ais523> and I said "inserting letters", overwriting them would be bloat
16:56:07 <elliott> the commands "x", "d", "^", "$", "a", "i"
16:56:15 <elliott> the latter two entering insert mode
16:56:19 <elliott> and finally, the command "c" for overwrite
16:56:25 <elliott> plus the vi-style numerical prefixes of those
16:56:34 <elliott> well, numerical and direction
16:56:40 <nooga> ad y and p
16:56:45 <ais523> elliott: I was trying to stay general, not assuming vi-like
16:56:47 <elliott> nooga: sure, sure, if you wanna be bloaty
16:56:51 <elliott> ais523: well, I want a vi-like editor :)
16:56:53 <elliott> ais523: posix specifies it!
16:56:57 <elliott> nooga: aha
16:57:14 <elliott> I'll try that after levee
16:57:31 <ais523> elliott: what about this for an idea: you can move the movement commands to arrow keys and home/end/etc
16:57:38 <ais523> that way, you wouldn't have the overhead of entering and leaving insert mode
16:57:48 <elliott> ais523: congratulations, you just invented emacs
16:57:56 <elliott> ais523: (and how do you do :? oh wait, I know, Alt+X!)
16:58:02 <elliott> genius! and we can put Lisp in it, too
16:58:07 <elliott> (fun fact: original ex had lisp)
16:58:21 <ais523> elliott: I'm aware of the irony :)
16:58:43 <elliott> ais523: I actually think insert mode is less code overhead
16:58:50 <elliott> ais523: because arrow keys etc. come as multiple characters
16:58:53 <elliott> so you have to maintain state /anyway/
16:59:19 <ais523> to be fair, Emacs and vim aren't that different; in vim you press esc and i to switch between modes, in Emacs you hold and release control
16:59:55 <elliott> ugh, you stupid configure script
17:00:26 <ais523> but I'm not a configure script!
17:00:40 <elliott> ais523: i'm referring to levee's
17:01:00 <elliott> which only takes $CC as a path, so I can't say "diet -Os pcc", and first tries CC without CFLAGS, so I can't say CC="diet" CFLAGS="-Os pcc"
17:01:07 <elliott> solution: wrapper script! dietpcc!
17:01:16 <elliott> just like pcc, but with fewer calories!
17:02:47 <Gregor> Why can't you say CC="diet -Os pcc"?
17:03:11 <Gregor> Oh
17:03:14 <Gregor> Only takes CC as a path.
17:03:17 <nooga> elliott: bundle hedgehog lisp in flinix
17:03:21 <Gregor> That's pretty bizarre.

17:23:09 <Vorpal> elliott, things that may be of use: console_ioctl(4) and termios(3) (the latter I doubt you mean but who knows)
17:23:23 <elliott> Vorpal: yes, it's doing what termios does
17:23:27 <elliott> but termios is ~big
17:23:34 <elliott> so i'm going to do it with ioctls
17:23:38 <elliott> ah look, some nice code I can rip off!
17:24:04 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, so wait, Kitten is minimalistic now?
17:24:14 <Vorpal> elliott, hm. termios big?
17:24:24 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: THIS IS FLINIX NOT KITTEN I TOLD YOU THAT
17:24:34 <Phantom_Hoover_> Ah.
17:24:40 <Vorpal> elliott, but why? the code is only in one copy on the disk?
17:24:57 <Phantom_Hoover_> I did disconnect just after asking, so I didn't know...
17:25:00 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: ah
17:25:04 <elliott> Vorpal: because, like every abstraction, it uses more code than doing it directly
17:25:19 <elliott> <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: No way! This is The Insane Flinix.
17:25:20 <elliott> <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: A compleat (well, for some definition of compleat) Linux distribution, with networking, X11 and an IRC client, in one 1.44 meg floppy.
17:25:27 <Vorpal> elliott, but since there is bound to be some app that needs it anyway it will still exist in exactly one copy on the system
17:25:54 <Vorpal> elliott, after all, aren't you using a deduplicating filesystem?
17:26:16 <elliott> <Vorpal> elliott, but since there is bound to be some app that needs it anyway it will still exist in exactly one copy on the system
17:26:19 <elliott> you realise this is flinix?
17:26:22 <elliott> no, there will not be any other app that uses it
17:26:27 <elliott> because there is not enough space on a floppy for that.
17:26:34 <Vorpal> elliott, flinix?
17:26:36 <Vorpal> what is that
17:26:44 <elliott> Vorpal:
17:26:45 <elliott> <elliott> <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: No way! This is The Insane Flinix.

17:26:54 <elliott> >_<
17:27:03 <Vorpal> why
17:27:10 <Vorpal> (as in why make that distro)
17:27:11 <elliott> why what
17:27:14 <elliott> because i want to.
17:27:24 <elliott> Vorpal: why did you make cfunge
17:27:56 <Vorpal> elliott, because I wanted to code something and was bored, and it looked like an interesting thing to code.
17:28:25 <elliott> Vorpal: so, in short: "because i wanted to."
17:28:31 <Vorpal> elliott, indeed
17:28:41 <Vorpal> elliott, but I though you were busy with kitten?
17:29:54 <elliott> Vorpal: pending on coreutils
17:31:17 <Vorpal> elliott, ah, you took a pause from writing that?
17:31:40 <Vorpal> elliott, also which X will you fit on that floppy
17:31:48 <Vorpal> not xorg I presume
17:32:59 <elliott> Vorpal: smallX
17:33:09 <elliott> and yes, this is my way of avoiding the infinite tedium of writing a coreutils
17:33:26 <elliott> Vorpal: smallX is this server that ran on 386s with 4 megs of ram as part of Small Linux
17:33:28 <elliott> libc5 based
17:33:35 <elliott> I just need to find a tarball on an ftp server that still exists :)
17:33:51 <elliott> it has two servers, mono (for Hercules mono cards and the like) and 16-colour VGA
17:33:55 <elliott> and its own tiny Xlib
17:34:05 <elliott> should suffice to run a very small terminal program at least

17:38:42 <nooga> good luck with writing that
17:39:04 <Vorpal> elliott, can't you reuse code for some tools from heirloom?
17:39:17 <elliott> Vorpal: i looked at heirloom code; it may be Olde Tymes but it sure isn't lean
17:39:27 <elliott> Vorpal: in fact i'd say it's about as ugly as BSD core utils. maybe more
17:39:36 <elliott> cat has like 5 flags :)
17:39:44 <elliott> also i don't /think/ it has mount, not sure
17:39:52 <nooga> elliott: http://hedgehog.oliotalo.fi/ bundle this

17:40:03 <elliott> nooga: what lang is it implemented in? C?
17:40:06 <Vorpal> ie. your goals are somewhat conflicting
17:40:11 <elliott> Vorpal: I do do that
17:40:22 <elliott> Vorpal: anyway it's more interface bloat i care about, it's just for fun, the size thing
17:40:29 <elliott> Vorpal: asmutils whoop me thoroughly in the ass as far as size goes
17:40:32 <elliott> (and i'm using them in flinix)
17:40:46 <nooga> elliott: who cares, it compiles to 20kB
17:41:13 <Vorpal> elliott, why not use busybox or asmutils then?
17:41:30 <nooga> elliott: and yes, it's in C
17:41:33 <elliott> Vorpal: busybox is huge
17:41:39 <elliott> nooga: 20K? pah, I can get it less
17:42:01 <elliott> nooga: what is the shared secret for :p
17:42:43 <nooga> but it's featureful
17:43:06 <nooga> and proveides a damn small scripting language for flinix
17:44:06 <elliott> nooga: unfortunately, flinix is too useless to need one
17:44:10 <elliott> nooga: what executable is 20K for you?

17:49:13 <Vorpal> elliott, yes the one I used on the rcx. That was libc in the "This isn't hosted so fuck you" meaning though
17:49:54 <elliott> nooga: dude, i'm well aware of dietlibc
17:49:58 <elliott> seeing as I've patched it
17:50:00 <elliott> it's still pretty big
17:50:07 <elliott> like one meg libc.a or so with stuff enabled
17:50:11 <elliott> maybe a few hundred K with stuff disabled
17:50:20 <elliott> I'm looking for 40K, 50K or so
17:50:23 <elliott> the one in asmutils is 20K
17:50:25 <elliott> or less, I forget
17:50:28 <Vorpal> elliott, after all, the whole OS and any programs have to fit into a 16-bit address space. Together with a rather large ROM.
17:50:29 <elliott> but i have a feeling it does not implement much :)

17:51:22 <Vorpal> elliott, wrong OS :P
17:52:06 <nooga> when will be the first release?
17:52:49 <Vorpal> elliott, why not drop printf. It tends to take a lot of space. You can have snprintf that does %s and %x, that is enough for anyone
17:52:50 <Vorpal> ;P
17:52:54 <Vorpal> bbl an hour or so

17:53:16 <elliott> nooga: as soon as I get X working
17:53:29 <elliott> ...somehow, my loop supporting any int is smaller than a conditional just supporting one digit
17:53:37 <elliott> Vorpal: (even in my real programs)
17:53:46 <elliott> wait, no it isn't, it's quite a bit bigger like that
17:56:28 <nooga> then what do you use instead of printf() ?
17:57:20 <elliott> nooga: write
17:57:27 <elliott> usually
17:58:23 <nooga> then how to you print numbers?
17:59:42 <elliott> nooga: i have an ltostr routine i carry around :p if I was less silly, I'd just use libowfat, which has formatted printing using write

19:08:06 <elliott> Vorpal: That was my retyping.
19:08:08 <Vorpal> ah
19:08:23 <Vorpal> elliott, you could add /proc to fstab
19:08:28 <Vorpal> but I guess that would waste space
19:08:32 <elliott> Vorpal: I don't do mount -a at boot.
19:08:34 <Vorpal> elliott, are you using a compressed fs?
19:08:49 <elliott> Vorpal: Yes and no. It's an initramfs compiled into the kernel, and the kernel is LZMA'd.
19:08:54 <Vorpal> ah
19:08:56 <elliott> So yes on floppy, no in RAM.
19:09:01 <elliott> It's like 70K anyway :P
19:09:03 <Vorpal> elliott, how does it compare to squashfs?
19:09:11 <Vorpal> or does squashfs has too much overhead?
19:09:15 <elliott> Vorpal: How does LZMA compare to anything --> LZMA beats it.
19:09:18 <elliott> Vorpal: Squashfs probably requires the block layer.
19:09:26 <Vorpal> haha
19:09:36 <elliott> Vorpal: And I would have to have floppy support since you can't embed normal filesystems into the kernel.
19:09:47 <elliott> Vorpal: Remember, initramfs is literally just a .cpio that gets unpacked into a ramfs in memory :P
19:10:12 <elliott> Guh, why isn't /proc mounting.
19:10:24 <elliott> (Also TODO: Figure out how the fuck to use asmutils less :P)
19:10:26 <Vorpal> elliott, I suspect squashfs does better at larger images since it is somewhat "smart" with how it represents the FS before it goes to the compression bit.
19:10:42 <elliott> Vorpal: "smart"er than cpio?
19:10:53 <Vorpal> elliott, does cpio do block deduplication?
19:11:05 <elliott> Vorpal: LZMA does all the deduplication you need :P
19:11:07 <Vorpal> sure it isn't useful at small sizes since then the compressing will take care of that
19:11:27 <Vorpal> elliott, afaik lzma has a window like most other compression algorithms
19:11:48 <elliott> Vorpal: Anyway, with squashfs I'd need it to be able to read the floppy to read it.
19:11:48 <Vorpal> elliott, which means it won't help if those files end up far from each other in a large (few hundred MB or so) image
19:11:51 <elliott> And the floppy would need formatting.
19:11:55 <Vorpal> elliott, ah
19:11:57 <elliott> At which point I could just use any filesystem on the floppy and mount it as /.
19:12:12 <elliott> Vorpal: To have it actually useful, I'd have to have a bloated bootloader which can read filesystems :P
19:12:23 <elliott> Vorpal: My bootloader = The very core of FreeDOS + LINLD in AUTOEXEC.BAT.
19:12:26 <Vorpal> elliott, or why not place it inside the initramfs ;)
19:12:29 <elliott> (Well, my bootloader will-be.)
19:12:34 <elliott> Vorpal: Then I don't need an FS :P
19:12:47 <Vorpal> elliott, what, that is a waste. Why not just a hand written boot sector
19:13:21 <Vorpal> elliott, surely that will be less wasteful
19:13:28 <elliott> Vorpal: You try loading Linux in 512 bytes :P
19:13:33 <elliott> It'll be smaller than lilo, probably.
19:13:56 <Vorpal> elliott, well you could use another sector or two. Still smaller than DOS + linld probably
19:14:25 <Vorpal> elliott, just place the kernel starting in the sector after the bootloader
19:14:36 <Vorpal> (and adjust offsets as needed)
19:14:40 <elliott> Vorpal: Patches welcome.
19:14:55 <Vorpal> elliott, well it would not need a patch against linux. Just a hand written boot loader
19:15:15 <Vorpal> elliott, what does linux need to load? the kernel image at a specific memory address. Anything else?
19:15:19 <elliott> Vorpal: Boot sectors welcome.
19:15:34 <Vorpal> elliott, I'm not insane enough to write real mode code
19:15:42 <oerjan> Vorpal: i suspect Q is for "quotient" (or whatever the german equivalent is)
19:15:49 <elliott> quiet_cmd_lzma = LZMA $@
19:15:49 <elliott> cmd_lzma = (cat $(filter-out FORCE,$^) | \
19:15:49 <elliott> lzma -9 && $(call size_append, $(filter-out FORCE,$^))) > $@ || \
19:15:49 <elliott> (rm -f $@ ; false)
19:15:52 <elliott> I THINK I CAN DO BETTER THAN -9
19:15:57 <Vorpal> I have never done so. IIRC you have. Thus you are more likely to succeed at that
19:16:05 <Vorpal> hey didn't you write a boot sector some time ago?
19:16:11 <elliott> WHY DOES LZMA NOT HAVE A --CRAZY
19:16:16 <elliott> Vorpal: Yes, but it wouldn't load Linux ...
19:16:20 <Vorpal> elliott, -9 isn't always best iirc
19:16:28 <Vorpal> elliott, for small files especially
19:16:40 <Gregor> I'll bet elliott mounts a case-insensitive filesystem just so he can scream his commands.
19:16:42 <Vorpal> try 1-9 both with and without -e
19:16:44 <elliott> Vorpal: This is lzma not xz fwiw.
19:16:46 <elliott> Gregor: I DO
19:16:49 <Vorpal> elliott, see which one wins
19:16:55 <Vorpal> elliott, oh, then that might make a difference
19:17:00 <elliott> lzma: invalid option -- 'e'
19:17:13 <Vorpal> elliott, yeah I don't remember if lzma had the same recommendation
19:17:23 <elliott> I'll try "xz --format=lzma -9 -e".
19:17:32 <elliott> System is 536 kB
19:17:34 <elliott> to beat.
19:18:11 <Vorpal> elliott, I wonder what the file system structure of an initramfs looks like in memory. Is it just the cpio loaded as is
19:18:12 <elliott> System is 670 kB
19:18:16 <elliott> xz: ultimate failure.
19:18:19 <Vorpal> or does it translate it somehow?
19:18:19 -!- cheater99 has joined.
19:18:33 <Vorpal> elliott, -9 isn't best with xz for small files iirc
19:18:52 <elliott> Vorpal: It loads it into a shmfs or a ramfs if it doesn't have tha-- oh, look, my kernel grew anyway, it isn't xz's fault.
19:19:32 <Vorpal> elliott, also when it comes to 1.0 I doubt it has initramfs, Maaaaaaybe initrd but I would be somewhat surprised at that too
19:20:08 <elliott> Wow, old Linux config was hateful. It doesn't let you pipe yes to it.
19:20:18 <elliott> HATEFUL

19:21:35 <Vorpal> elliott, presumably they didn't care if employees worked on such small hobby projects back then. I mean, they weren't really any threat back then
19:21:38 <Vorpal> elliott, who is that
19:21:40 <elliott> It's someone called Raymond Chen and it MIGHT JUST BE THAT RAYMOND CHEN.
19:21:49 <elliott> Vorpal: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/
19:22:03 <elliott> Famous blogger on the awful reasons why Windows is so awful.
19:22:19 <Vorpal> elliott, at msdn?
19:22:22 <Vorpal> err
19:22:29 <elliott> Vorpal: Well, he doesn't consider it awful :P

19:25:08 <Vorpal> elliott, augh at the top post of http://notch.tumblr.com/
19:26:18 <elliott> Vorpal: Will the endless bugs in Minecraft ever be fixed instead of terrible puns being posted to the blog? Notch-ance!
19:26:22 <elliott> Notch-ance at all.
19:27:52 <elliott> as86 -0 -a -o boot/bootsect.o boot/bootsect.s
19:27:53 <elliott> make: as86: Command not found
19:27:57 <elliott> HATEFUL KERNEL
19:28:01 <Vorpal> elliott, I believe the blog host was down for a few hours yesterday or so. It was down with a database error message when I tried at one point
19:28:07 <elliott> Oh joy, it doesn't look like gas syntax.
19:28:26 <Vorpal> elliott, does it look like intel? If so I'm sad. It should use an exotic third option
19:28:35 <elliott> It looks like AT&T but different :P
19:28:41 <Vorpal> elliott, oh yay
19:28:53 <Vorpal> elliott, different how?
19:29:06 * Vorpal invents a screwy asm syntax
19:29:12 <Vorpal> infix asm!
19:29:16 <elliott> Description: 16-bit x86 assembler and loader
19:29:16 <elliott> This is the as86 and ld86 distribution written by Bruce Evans. It's a complete 8086 assembler and loader which can make 32-bit code for the 386+ processors.
19:29:18 <elliott> thar we go
19:29:23 <elliott> Vorpal: Numbers start with # :P
19:29:27 <Vorpal> elliott, "target mov source" or "source mov target"
19:29:30 <Vorpal> which is best
19:29:38 <elliott> Vorpal: target := source
19:29:39 <elliott> or
19:29:41 <elliott> source -> target
19:29:44 <Vorpal> elliott, it should use mov
19:29:44 <elliott> or
19:29:53 <elliott> sou mov(target) rce
19:29:55 <Vorpal> elliott, I want infix asm
19:30:00 <elliott> consider
19:30:08 <elliott> e mov(ebx) ax
19:30:14 <elliott> see how the prefix is neatly separated from the base register
19:30:17 <Vorpal> elliott, seriously this is intended to be screwy, obscure and confusing :P
19:30:22 <Vorpal> it is not intended to be sane
19:30:25 <Vorpal> true
19:30:28 <Vorpal> hm
19:30:29 <elliott> <elliott> e mov(ebx) ax
19:30:30 <elliott> that's the same as
19:30:32 <elliott> mov eax, ebx
19:30:33 <elliott> in intel
19:30:37 <elliott> or
19:30:38 <elliott> mov ebx, eax
19:30:40 <elliott> pick whichever :P
19:30:41 <Vorpal> hah
19:30:47 <elliott> in 16-bit mode you'd do
19:30:51 <elliott> a mov(bx) x
19:31:04 <elliott> as -c -o boot/head.o boot/head.s
19:31:04 <elliott> as: unrecognized option '-c'
19:31:05 <Vorpal> elliott, it should use different register names
19:31:05 <elliott> INFERNAL MACHINE
19:31:06 <Vorpal> hm
19:31:25 <elliott> boot/head.S: Assembler messages:
19:31:25 <elliott> boot/head.S:64: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `push'
19:31:26 <elliott> boot/head.S:65: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `popf'
19:31:26 <elliott> boot/head.S:99: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `pushf'
19:31:27 <elliott> DIE DIE DIE
19:31:49 <elliott> Oh, fuck this shit, I'll try Linux 2.0.
19:32:12 <Vorpal> (a,b) mov ex
19:32:15 <Vorpal> elliott, what about that
19:32:24 <Vorpal> for eax to ebx
19:32:37 <elliott> Vorpal: Yes, except not ex; have an infix operand size modifier.
19:32:48 <elliott> (a,b) [32] mov
19:32:50 <Vorpal> hm
19:33:02 <Vorpal> elliott, lets rename the registers
19:33:06 <elliott> Vorpal: And also have blocks of commands, so that instead of "bits 32", you do:
19:33:10 <elliott> [32] { ... }
19:33:26 <Vorpal> (1,2) [5] mov
19:33:28 <elliott> OK, Linux 2.0.1, if you're bloated I'll fuck your shit up.
19:33:34 <Vorpal> elliott, since 2^5 = 32
19:33:39 <elliott> Your shit... will be maximally fucked up.
19:33:54 <elliott> Vorpal: But that's not what the operation does! Instead, that should be
19:33:54 <Vorpal> elliott, you aren't persistent enoigh
19:33:57 <elliott> (1,2) mov
19:33:57 <Vorpal> enough*
19:34:02 <elliott> Vorpal: But "mov ax, bx" would be
19:34:12 <elliott> (1,2) mov &1111111111111111
19:34:19 <elliott> Vorpal: Because it modifies only the lower 16 bits.
19:34:22 <Vorpal> elliott, :D
19:34:28 <Vorpal> elliott, why the &?
19:34:33 <Vorpal> what does it signify
19:34:35 <elliott> Vorpal: Because it's like bitwise and if you squint.
19:35:03 <elliott> Vorpal: WAIT
19:35:05 <Vorpal> ah hm
19:35:09 <elliott> Vorpal: All numbers should be trinary.
19:35:34 <elliott> Vorpal: (1,2) mov &10022220020
19:35:35 <Vorpal> elliott, there is a fine line between "screwy" and "malbolge86"
19:35:39 <Vorpal> I think you just crossed it
19:35:41 <elliott> Vorpal: Yes. Let's cross it!
19:35:44 <oerjan> PLuggable ASsembler MAcros
19:35:59 <Vorpal> elliott, so what about base pointer and indexing?
19:36:14 <elliott> Vorpal: Those are done as virtual instructions.
19:36:18 <Vorpal> elliott, also they should be balanced ternary gray code
19:36:22 <Vorpal> for maximum screwiness
19:36:27 <elliott> Vorpal: For instance, what is, in Intel, "mov [ebx], [eax+2]"
19:36:32 <elliott> would be, in this, let me think...
19:36:33 <elliott> Ah yes.
19:36:47 <elliott> (1,2) incv
19:36:49 <elliott> (2,1) mov
19:36:54 <elliott> That is:
19:36:58 <olsner> you can't have two memory operands in an instruction like that
19:37:07 <elliott> olsner: Okay, okay, okay, fine.
19:37:10 <elliott> Vorpal: Okay, this:
19:37:12 <elliott> mov ebx, [eax+2]
19:37:14 <elliott> would look like this:
19:37:23 <elliott> (2,1) incv
19:37:27 <elliott> (1) deaddrv
19:37:27 <Vorpal> elliott, did you just increment eax by two first?
19:37:28 <Vorpal> hm
19:37:29 <elliott> (2,1) mov
19:37:32 <elliott> Vorpal: VIRTUALLY.
19:37:41 <Vorpal> elliott, deaddrv?
19:37:47 <elliott> Vorpal: "Increment, virtually, register 1, by 2. Deaddress, virtually, register 1. Move register 1 to register 2."
19:37:54 <Vorpal> ah
19:37:55 <elliott> It's (2,1) incv because we do everything in the most illogical order.
19:37:59 <Vorpal> elliott, what about: mov eax, [eax+2]
19:38:00 <elliott> ("incv 2, eax")
19:38:03 <Vorpal> (not sure that is valid even)
19:38:12 <elliott> Vorpal: Easy!
19:38:14 <nooga> elliott: which kernel version do you have now?
19:38:25 <elliott> (-1,1) movv
19:38:28 <elliott> (2,1) incv
19:38:36 <elliott> wait wait
19:38:36 <Vorpal> elliott, whaat?
19:38:42 <elliott> Vorpal: Let me try that again, all on one line.
19:38:57 <olsner> Vorpal: of course you can load into a register you use for the address
19:39:01 <elliott> (-1,1) movv; (2,-1) incv; (-1) deaddrv; (1,-1) mov
19:39:15 <Vorpal> olsner, oh damn intel
19:39:16 <elliott> Vorpal: Registers not part of the architecture work in virtual instructions, since virtual instructions don't actually translate to instructions!
19:39:18 <Vorpal> I meant the other way around
19:39:27 <oerjan> SOurce Language Independent Disassembler
19:39:31 <elliott> Vorpal: So the virtual mapping ends up being:
19:39:32 <Vorpal> move eax -> eax+2
19:39:35 <Vorpal> is what I meant
19:39:40 <elliott> Vorpal: Oh.
19:39:49 <elliott> Vorpal: Well, no, you can't :P
19:39:51 <elliott> <elliott> (-1,1) movv; (2,-1) incv; (-1) deaddrv; (1,-1) mov
19:39:53 <elliott> Dissecting this:
19:39:59 <Vorpal> elliott, can you in normal asm?
19:40:00 <elliott> The movv creates the map {-1 => 1}.
19:40:06 <elliott> i.e., virtual register -1 is real register 1.
19:40:13 <elliott> Then the invc turns it into {-1 => 1+2}.
19:40:19 <elliott> Then the deaddrv turns it into {-1 => [1+2]}.
19:40:26 <elliott> Then the mov substitutes [1+2] for -1.
19:40:29 <Vorpal> heh
19:40:32 <elliott> Vorpal: no, you can't
19:40:38 <elliott> but I translated what your snippet means in Intel correctly :P
19:40:39 <elliott> hmm
19:40:40 <Vorpal> elliott, what a pity
19:40:42 <elliott> "v" is so normal
19:40:46 <elliott> I have a better idea
19:40:53 <elliott> virtual instructions use [] instead of ()
19:41:00 <elliott> BUT!
19:41:04 <elliott> Only on the side that's virtual.
19:41:16 <Vorpal> elliott, what about rotating the bits of the register numbers one step for each instruction?
19:41:17 <elliott> [-1,1) mov; (2,-1] inc; [-1] deaddr; (1,-1] mov
19:41:20 <olsner> wtf does "virtual" mean?
19:41:28 <elliott> olsner: simple: the calculation is done by the assembler
19:41:42 <elliott> olsner: so in this case, it has this idea of an imaginary register, which is first the value of 1, and which it then imaginarily increments
19:41:47 <Vorpal> wait
19:41:48 <Vorpal> even better
19:41:49 <elliott> olsner: and it then imaginarily deaddresses it
19:41:57 <elliott> olsner: so when you use -1, it replaces it with [eax+2]
19:41:57 <oerjan> Language Independent QUerying and Interactive Debugger
19:41:58 <Vorpal> rotate it by the hash for the instruction in big endian
19:42:01 <Vorpal> or middle endian
19:42:01 <elliott> Vorpal: no :P
19:42:14 <Vorpal> elliott, hey malbolge86
19:42:18 <Vorpal> elliott, it would be fitting
19:42:37 <elliott> oerjan: Creatively Retarded & Addled Computing Kompiler

19:43:03 <elliott> Gregor: SHUT UP
19:43:03 <Gregor> *computing ...
19:43:24 <elliott> YES! LINUX 2.0 HAS MENUCONFIG!
19:43:35 <oerjan> elliott: hey you're not keeping to the theme.
19:43:49 <Vorpal> oerjan, what theme?
19:43:51 <elliott> oerjan: crack is the fourth form of matta
19:43:56 <oerjan> elliott: O KAY
19:44:02 <Gregor> elliott: The best way to handle make config is yes '' | make config :P
19:44:04 <Vorpal> elliott, I read that as "crack is the forth form of matta"
19:44:08 <elliott> Gregor: It read from /dev/tty.

19:44:43 <olsner> elliott: make /dev/tty a symlink to /dev/fd/0 or something :)
19:44:47 <elliott> Gregor: I approve! (I just hacked the shell script.)
19:44:48 <Vorpal> elliott, yes and I read "matta" in Swedish
19:44:52 <Vorpal> elliott, since it is a valid Swedish word

19:46:17 <HackEgo> <olsner> Vorpal: From carpet to crack in three steps!
19:46:19 <Gregor> oerjan: Apparently it isn't :P
19:46:21 <Vorpal> elliott, "spricka" = "crack in the sense crack in the wall"
19:46:22 <Gregor> Oh, there we go.
19:46:29 <Vorpal> elliott, not crack in the sense "drug"
19:46:30 <Gregor> Google wasn't happy with me or something :P
19:46:36 <elliott> Vorpal: Blame Google

19:56:02 <Vorpal> elliott, he wrote äöå. Listing a series of letters of the alphabet you normally do in alphabetic order. Out of habit and convenience I guess.
19:56:05 <Vorpal> elliott, he didn't :P

20:13:40 <Vorpal> (writing on dialect is always fun)
20:13:45 <Vorpal> (it confuses google translate)
20:13:58 <Gregor> ... I just accidentally typed www.redchina.com while trying to type www.foxnews.com (<-- to test a crashbug)
20:14:08 <elliott> Gregor: Why would you ever type www.foxnews.com.
20:14:10 <elliott> But X-D
20:14:17 <ais523> elliott: to test a crashbug
20:14:29 <elliott> ais523: a crashbug on foxnews.com is known as a feature
20:14:30 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, how much lightstone do you have stockpiled?
20:14:46 <olsner> elliott: *crashfeature
20:14:51 <ais523> not really, no input should crash a browser, whether malicious /or/ incompetent
20:14:59 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, one left. That is all unless I have some I somewhere I forgot.
20:15:01 <Phantom_Hoover_> I'm afraid I mistook the one in the throne room for dirt and broke it.
20:15:11 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, you fix that. Somehow
20:15:19 <Phantom_Hoover_> I'd repay you, but you're much richer than me anyway.
20:15:29 <Phantom_Hoover_> How about preferential defence by the ROU?
20:15:31 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, get one from the admin. And even if it was dirt why would you break it in my place
20:15:39 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, should I go around breaking stuff at your place
20:15:58 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, I accept nothing but a lightstone as repayment
20:16:08 <ais523> I take it lightstones are rare?
20:16:10 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, you have to get one from the admin
20:16:22 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, for now, I have replaced it with a block of dirt.
20:16:27 <Vorpal> ais523, you can't get them in the normal way in multi-player
20:16:29 <Phantom_Hoover_> I hope the difference is not too apparent.
20:16:40 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, it is very. I use painterly and they are hugely different
20:16:54 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, so as soon as you see the server admin. Get him to give you one block and replace it
20:17:05 <elliott> Wow, an ISA kernel is much smaller!
20:17:08 <Vorpal> ais523, basically missing feature in multiplayer (no "nether" dimension)
20:17:16 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, I use painterly!
20:17:23 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, custom painterly?
20:17:23 <Phantom_Hoover_> That's why I confused them!
20:17:27 <Phantom_Hoover_> Yes.
20:17:32 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, not the same custom as me
20:17:36 <Vorpal> obviously
20:17:43 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, or maybe you use a monochrome monitor
20:17:55 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, anyway, why did you break it at all. Seriously
20:18:06 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, even if it HAD been dirt that would be rather rude
20:18:26 <Phantom_Hoover_> It's dirt!
20:18:33 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, and?
20:18:38 <Phantom_Hoover_> It's what, the second most common block type!
20:18:44 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, I'll go to your place and remove all dirt then?
20:18:47 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, no?
20:18:48 <elliott> Most common. imo.
20:18:55 <elliott> 1 dirt != 1,000,000,000,000 dirt
20:18:56 <Vorpal> elliott, stone is far more common
20:18:56 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, cobble.
20:19:04 <elliott> maaaybe
20:19:49 <Vorpal> elliott, also what about removing one dirt placed in a clearly highly ornamental place. Like in the middle of a stone wall with 4 torches around in a pattern? Except it was lightstone
20:20:25 <elliott> how does one list the types of NIC qemu will emulate?
20:20:29 <elliott> i don't have all the ones in the manpage
20:20:30 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, anyway I expect you fix this. The place is ruined without a lightstone there.
20:22:08 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, also if you insist on go about digging in other people's places I guess I could either do that at your place too: "but in my texture pack the glass looked like dirt", eh?
20:22:23 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, or I could just brick it all up and make a maze of tunnels
20:22:34 <Vorpal> (that don't actually connect anywhere
20:22:35 <Vorpal> )
20:22:39 <Phantom_Hoover_> Jesus, I apologised.
20:22:57 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, right, I realise you can't get a replacement right away. But as soon as you see the server I expect you to get one
20:23:31 <elliott> What if serv says no.
20:23:38 <elliott> Just throwin' that out there.
20:24:14 <Vorpal> elliott, I'll decide if that happens
20:24:23 <elliott> Decide... what?
20:24:47 <Vorpal> probably going to request a gold block replacement instead or such then. Which will not look very good. Since it doesn't give off light it wouldn't really work
20:25:05 <Vorpal> elliott, besides he said before he was willing to give lightstone if you asked and had an use for it
20:25:15 <Vorpal> and making a sun-like symbol is definitely a use
20:25:38 <Vorpal> (I would have made a bigger one if i had more lightstone)
20:28:19 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, just logged in to check. 1) very different colour. 2) dirt isn't an acceptable replacement. A gold block would be until you can get a lightstone (you would get the gold block back)

21:10:21 <elliott> Gregor: I need libX11 and that's all. (Advantage of smallX: it has its own, tiny Xlib.)
21:10:28 <Gregor> Mmm
21:10:32 <elliott> Gregor: Also, I need *some* kind of room left to put rxvt or whatever in :P
21:11:21 <Vorpal> elliott, couldn't you format the floppy as higher capacity than it really is?
21:11:32 <Vorpal> I seem to remember this being possible (but really really stupid)
21:11:35 <elliott> Vorpal: (1) Not reliably. (2) I refuse to.
21:12:02 <Vorpal> elliott, I wonder where you could find a 2.whatever MB floppy
21:12:09 <olsner> I formatted a floppy at a lower capacity once, unfortunately my special floppy-massage program didn't support the higher original capacity :/
21:12:20 <Gregor> elliott: Heh, so kdrive has enough requirements that that'd probably not work :P
21:12:27 <Vorpal> olsner, "floppy-massage"?
21:12:30 <olsner> IBM used to ship their operating systems on 2.88MB disks
21:12:32 <elliott> Gregor: Oh, and building KDrive has the distinct disadvantage that what the fuck modularised X's build system it is insane and horrible.
21:12:39 <olsner> Vorpal: *formatting then
21:12:45 <Gregor> <3 modular X build system
21:12:48 <Vorpal> olsner, ah
21:12:58 <xvedejas> what window managers do you all use?
21:13:05 <xvedejas> right now I'm on AwesomeWM
21:13:16 <elliott> I use metacity because Kitten isn't done yet. :p
21:13:18 <Vorpal> uh, metacity atm.
21:13:22 <elliott> <Gregor> <3 modular X build system
21:13:25 <elliott> Have you ever used it?
21:13:27 <elliott> It is awful :P
21:13:30 <Gregor> elliott: Extensively.
21:13:31 <olsner> it's autocrap, isn't it?
21:13:36 <Gregor> elliott: I've also used what came before.
21:13:36 <elliott> olsner: No, worse.
21:13:38 <Gregor> Extensively.
21:13:43 <Vorpal> Gregor, *imake*?
21:13:44 <Gregor> olsner: Yes, it's autotools, which is why it's so good.
21:13:45 <Vorpal> oh the horror
21:13:51 <olsner> Gregor: lol
21:14:00 <Vorpal> Gregor, imake was one of the worst ones I ever seen
21:14:10 <elliott> Gregor: autotools is great if you never want to CONFIGURE anything.
21:14:28 <Gregor> Vorpal: Yeah, imake was ... bad. I've built X11R6 (as in, the real X11R6) on HP-UX. Autotooled X = godsend.
21:14:51 <Vorpal> elliott, autotools actually get the shit done. And works when you need to do something a bit unusual. What is your suggestion instead? cmake? scons? Plain makefile doesn
21:14:57 <Vorpal> doesn't* cut it for more complex stuff
21:15:02 <olsner> is imake the one that preprocesses makefiles using cpp?
21:15:19 <Vorpal> Gregor, yes for such a platform I imagine it would be
21:15:20 <elliott> Vorpal: No, seriously, autotools breaks down and fucks itself the minute you step out of a few rigidly-defined GNU-type systems.
21:15:28 <elliott> It works for you because you use GNU/Linux/Typical.
21:15:45 <Gregor> elliott: ... no.
21:15:46 <Vorpal> elliott, not my experience at all. Only thing it doesn't work well on seems to be cygwin
21:15:48 <Gregor> elliott: So much no.
21:16:01 <Gregor> elliott: You realize that for years I worked for Intel doing builds of F/OSS software on like six architectures?
21:16:13 <Gregor> elliott: With every new package, we PRAYED that it was autotools. Because autotools WORK.
21:16:15 <Vorpal> elliott, it works fine on *BSD, it works fine on some more esoteric platforms such as opensolaris. I haven't tried HP-UX though so can't answer for that
21:16:29 <Vorpal> it even worked fine on an old sunos box
21:16:43 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, OpenSolaris is not esoteric.
21:16:57 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, did I claim it was?
21:17:03 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Whatever you want to believe :P
21:17:09 <elliott> "it works fine on some more esoteric platforms such as opensolaris"
21:17:14 <Vorpal> but yes it is in some aspects
21:17:25 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, esoteric <-> interesting.
21:17:27 <Vorpal> elliott, oh not in the "on topic sense"
21:18:06 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Esoteric == only known to a small, select group. An unsupported OS that barely managed to get off the ground and is now being squelched is the definition of esoteric.
21:18:55 <Phantom_Hoover_> It should also do something new, or at least defy common practices.
21:19:44 <Vorpal> Gregor, indeed
21:20:31 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, this is entirely my own definition.
21:20:53 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, so why would you expect other people to use it?
21:21:39 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, Gregor's definition makes things like the Seltzer & Friedberg Appreciation Society esoteric.
21:22:02 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, I never heard of that so I don't know
21:22:12 <Vorpal> it is however an indication that could be the case
21:22:56 <Gregor> elliott: I notice you haven't actually made any further comments about autotools, since autotools are a cross-platform build maintainer's dream, whereas cmake, scons, plain Makefiles and whatever else you're going to list have exactly the problems you mentioned as being problems of autotools.
21:23:21 <elliott> Gregor: I'm not going to list any because every one sucks, I've just been bitten by autotols constantly.
21:23:23 <elliott> *autotools.
21:23:24 -!- xiaoy has joined.
21:23:49 <Vorpal> Gregor, why did you build them at intel btw?
21:23:59 <Gregor> Vorpal: ... because that was my job?
21:24:07 <Vorpal> Gregor, yes but for what? their linux distro?
21:24:13 <Gregor> Vorpal: Internal use.
21:24:32 <elliott> Vorpal: To maim the babies.
21:24:33 <Vorpal> Gregor, oh heh. They had their own linux distro internally or what?
21:24:46 <elliott> Gregor: ...
21:24:52 <elliott> Gregor: Let's not bother trying to make Vorpal understand things!
21:25:09 <Gregor> No, they just had a distro of commonly-used F/OSS tools that were all at the same versions across some six arch/OS combinations.
21:25:15 <Vorpal> Gregor, ah
21:25:30 <elliott> Gregor: please tell me windows was one of them
21:25:41 <Gregor> elliott: Good LORD no.
21:25:46 <elliott> Gregor: awww :D
21:25:56 <elliott> "
21:25:56 <elliott> If Linux doesn't have the solution, you have the wrong problem." -- stupid Linux forum signature
21:26:00 <elliott> what does that even mean
21:26:07 <elliott> medical equipment that needs hard real-time is WRONG!
21:26:18 <Vorpal> Gregor, hm, intel would use x86, x86-64, IA-64 and ARM right
21:26:35 <Vorpal> probably not ARM for this
21:26:38 <Gregor> elliott: <jsBot> Gregor: ... If eval() is the answer, chances are you're asking the wrong question
21:26:45 <Gregor> elliott: That makes me grind my teeth every time :P
21:26:58 <Gregor> Vorpal: And SPARC, PA-RISC :P
21:27:14 <Vorpal> Gregor, they use SPARC and PA-RISC? So weird.
21:27:28 <elliott> Gregor: This philosophy is exemplified in #python, where their motto is "You're here for help? Hahahaha. Tell us your entire application architecture and we will rip it apart without trying to understand it."
21:27:37 <elliott> Gregor: (the "wrong question" philosophy)
21:28:42 <Vorpal> elliott, it DOES happen that people ask the wrong question though. Like in #bash, trying to make echo do something weird when it is trivially straightforward with printf.
21:28:49 <elliott> Seriously, I will PAY someone to find a smallX tarball to me.
21:28:59 <elliott> Vorpal: Yes, but with Python it's not "do it this other way", it's "don't do that" at a very high level.
21:29:12 <elliott> I want to hook up X to Y. Don't do that, use Z instead. But I can't use Z. Well fuck you then.
21:29:31 <Vorpal> elliott, tried http://www.superant.com/smalllinux/tinyX01.html ?
21:29:37 <Phantom_Hoover_> What about when the thing they're trying is genuinely dumb?
21:29:46 <elliott> Vorpal: Go on, try clicking one of those tarball links.
21:29:55 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: if that was the case i wouldn't criticise as much.
21:30:00 <Vorpal> elliott, ouch
21:30:03 -!- xiaoy has left (?).
21:30:11 <Vorpal> elliott, try the email there?
21:30:18 <elliott> Vorpal: I've found the HTTP interface to tux.org FTP and their smalllinux/smallX pages are 404'd.
21:30:21 <olsner> "genuinely dumb"? you seem to be implying something not-dumb is even possible in python :)
21:30:30 <elliott> Vorpal: I will if I can't find the .tgz.
21:30:34 <elliott> But I'd like to find it rather than bug him...
21:31:01 <Vorpal> elliott, well hopefully that will mean he will update the link to something that works
21:31:12 <elliott> Vorpal: Who knows if he has it?
21:31:26 <elliott> [["Here's some interesting news: KOffice, as a brand name, no longer exists. And with that change, I can't help but wonder if we are soon going to be looking at the end of the KDE name, as well.
21:31:26 <elliott> "It seems that the KDE community has decided to rename the KOffice project to the Calligra Suite project, as well as all the names of the individual applications within KOffice. So, KWord becomes Words, KSpread becomes Tables, and so forth. There's a table on the Calligra suite announcement that lists all of the changes.]]
21:31:27 <elliott> LOLKDE
21:31:35 <Vorpal> elliott, who knows. Who knows if he died from a freak volcano? (Okay that is less probable, but still!)
21:31:38 <elliott> Words, it's like Microsoft Word but there's more of 'em.
21:31:44 <Phantom_Hoover_> olsner, come now, using a particular language doesn't actually make a program stupid.
21:32:04 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: PHP
21:32:14 <Phantom_Hoover_> But programming languages can themselves be stupid ideas, and they can be designed and pitched in such a way that only idiots use them.
21:32:24 <elliott> To see the newest version of these wiki notes go to [[http://www.superant.com/sadrupal/]] ----> 404
21:33:01 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, I am sure that somewhere, at some time, someone will have written a sensible program in PHP.
21:33:08 <olsner> Phantom_Hoover_: I'm saying Python is (also) one of those languages
21:33:18 <Vorpal> elliott, "sadrupal"? I thought drupal was a CMS and not a wiki. So weird name
21:33:26 <Phantom_Hoover_> That are stupid ideas or attract stupid people?
21:33:29 <Phantom_Hoover_> Or both?
21:33:38 <pikhq> elliott: I don't think you realise how awful imake is.
21:33:52 <Vorpal> olsner, you have to admit python is better than php at least?
21:33:54 <pikhq> elliott: It's C preprocessor on Makefiles.
21:34:16 <olsner> Vorpal: definitely
21:34:36 <elliott> pikhq: i never said it wasn't awful
21:34:39 <Vorpal> pikhq, and since when did not knowing about something stop elliott having extremely strong opinions about it?
21:34:41 <elliott> Vorpal: drupal is na everything
21:34:49 <elliott> I KNOW IT WAS HORRIBLE
21:34:50 <Vorpal> elliott, oaky true
21:34:54 <elliott> *an
21:34:55 <Vorpal> okay*
21:34:58 <Vorpal> wrt drupal that is
21:35:16 <Phantom_Hoover_> Can someone actually send me a précis of why PHP sucks?
21:35:18 <Vorpal> elliott, autotools is an improvement. In fact autotools is the best option there is currently
21:35:33 <Phantom_Hoover_> I've never learnt it, and it's always just been implicitly true.
21:35:37 <elliott> [Removed chvt, deallocvt because they didn't work.]
21:35:46 <nooga> faeg
21:35:46 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: Far too many reasons.
21:35:46 -!- xvedejas has quit (Quit: Leaving).
21:35:58 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, hence "précis".
21:36:24 <nooga> norwegians say "precis" all the time
21:36:34 <Vorpal> nooga, that is a different "precis" I think
21:36:34 <olsner> swedes too
21:36:42 <Vorpal> olsner, precis!
21:36:47 <pikhq> I had never seen "précis" before.
21:36:55 <Vorpal> pikhq, I had to google it
21:37:04 <Vorpal> pikhq, also I'm surprised. It is something you would use
21:37:08 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: Man who admits he hates programming invents programming language that's like Perl except everything is in one big print statement and to get out of print and have code you need to write <?php ... ?>. Then he puts all functions, with inconsistent argument order and naming, into one gigantic namespace, make ?x=y in the URL set $x = y, and makes ' and \ in strings automatically get backslash-escaped so that you can put them into a M
21:37:09 <elliott> ySQL DB directly (seriously).
21:37:10 <olsner> but "a précis" is basically a summary, right?
21:37:22 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: Follow natural evolution path towards amazingly crap.
21:37:25 <elliott> *evolutionary
21:37:33 <pikhq> Vorpal: Yes, yes I would.
21:37:51 <elliott> CC arch/x86/kernel/cpu/vmware.o
21:37:52 <elliott> CC arch/x86/kernel/cpu/hypervisor.o
21:37:54 <elliott> Can one disable these:
21:38:02 <Vorpal> elliott, which kernel version
21:38:03 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, OK.
21:38:10 <elliott> Vorpal:
21:38:10 <Vorpal> elliott, if it recent I think you should be able to
21:38:13 <elliott> VMware options are *not* enabled.
21:38:31 <Vorpal> elliott, wait, there. That you probably need to enable embedded to remove cpuid strings
21:38:31 <elliott> And nor are any hypervisor options.
21:38:32 <Vorpal> or such
21:38:42 <elliott> Vorpal: I have enabled embedded.
21:38:46 <Vorpal> elliott, hm
21:38:56 <Vorpal> elliott, okay then check if they just contain #ifdef SOMETHINGTHATENABLESME
21:38:59 <Vorpal> elliott, I seen that
21:39:07 <Vorpal> elliott, basically empty object files is what I suspect
21:39:17 <elliott> Nope,
21:39:19 <elliott> EXPORT_SYMBOL(x86_hyper_vmware);
21:39:21 <elliott> and no ifdef
21:39:27 <elliott> I don't know if it's actually linked in, mind.
21:39:35 <elliott> -rw-r--r-- 1 elliott elliott 1720 Dec 7 20:57 arch/x86/kernel/cpu/vmware.o
21:39:37 <elliott> maybe it is empty, then
21:39:39 <Vorpal> elliott, since I saw altivec.o compile on x86_64. I got so confused about that, that I opened the C file and found it just ifdefed out
21:39:46 <elliott> hypervisor is slightly smaller
21:39:54 <elliott> and isn't ifdeffed out either
21:40:05 <Vorpal> elliott, just export symbol? Nothing else?
21:40:10 <elliott> Vorpal: no, other things too
21:40:14 <Vorpal> huh
21:40:15 <elliott> static functions and the like
21:40:16 <elliott> CC arch/x86/boot/video-vga.o
21:40:16 <elliott> CC arch/x86/boot/video-vesa.o
21:40:21 <elliott> ugh, i hope you can disable the latter
21:40:43 <Vorpal> elliott, why aren't you using an older kernel (assuming it is the floppy one still)
21:40:58 <elliott> Vorpal: cba
21:41:02 <elliott> even 2.4 was a bitch
21:41:10 <Vorpal> elliott, 2.4 didn't build?
21:41:18 <Vorpal> elliott, if so: what, it is recent enough
21:41:18 <elliott> i don't recall
21:41:32 <Vorpal> elliott, make xconfig is the sanest option for 2.4 iirc
21:41:44 <Vorpal> elliott, (have fun with Tk)
21:41:53 <elliott> i tried it
21:41:55 <elliott> with menuconfig
21:41:57 <elliott> whatever, anyway

21:42:03 <elliott> │ │ (0x1000000) Alignment value to which kernel should be aligned │ │
21:42:07 <elliott> wonder if reducing them will shrink kernel :)
21:42:18 <Vorpal> elliott, no it won't I think
21:42:30 <Vorpal> elliott, also if you change that I *think* you need to change the bootloader too
21:42:41 <elliott> prolly
21:43:03 * elliott disables mice for now
21:43:17 <elliott> System is 608 kB
21:43:18 <elliott> fuckin' a
21:43:35 <elliott> what where did my ethernet go
21:43:53 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, so wait, where are you going to get software for this?
21:44:03 <Phantom_Hoover_> Are you going to install a libc?
21:44:09 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: um there's barely enough space for software
21:44:16 <elliott> libc is unlikely, they're big and i can statically-link stuff
21:44:21 <Vorpal> elliott, I'm sure 2.4 will be smaller. 2.0 even smaller
21:44:26 <elliott> i tried 2.0.
21:44:29 <elliott> didn't build
21:44:39 <elliott> all i really want at this point is... X, a tiny window manager, and a tiny terminal
21:44:46 <elliott> maybe one day i can squeeze links2 in.
21:44:51 <Vorpal> elliott, "I tried foo, didn't work, I gave up". Okay I won't hold that against you.
21:44:53 <Phantom_Hoover_> Ah, I get it.
21:45:02 <elliott> Vorpal: good :P
21:45:12 <elliott> ok let's see where my ethernet went
21:45:27 <elliott> 11690 e3
21:45:36 <Vorpal> elliott, because it doesn't change anything. I already knew that you weren't very persistent in any endeavour
21:45:36 <elliott> i wonder if i could disable all the non-vi modes of e3
21:45:49 <elliott> Vorpal: sure i am, just not in pointless endeavours.
21:45:54 <elliott> and this is definitely pointless.
21:46:11 <Vorpal> elliott, so procrastinating?
21:46:20 <elliott> nope, just messing around
21:46:20 <Vorpal> so,
21:46:21 <Vorpal> *
21:46:25 <Vorpal> okay
21:46:28 <elliott> and because pikhq wanted to do it
21:46:32 <elliott> so i'd better do it better first!
21:46:34 <Vorpal> hah
21:47:39 <Vorpal> nooga, oh btw in case you didn't know. sv:precis = en:exactly.
21:47:53 <Vorpal> (also en:exact, depends on context)
21:49:56 <elliott> 1622 finger

21:49:58 <elliott> Biggest utilities :P
21:50:23 <Vorpal> elliott, you don't need finger?
21:50:27 <Vorpal> elliott, or?
21:50:43 <elliott> Vorpal: sure I don't, but why not
21:51:05 <Vorpal> elliott, well sure, if you have space left over
21:51:40 <elliott> Vorpal: it's 1622 bytes :P
21:52:08 <Vorpal> elliott, which makes the space you can spend on X 1622 bytes smaller
21:55:56 <Gregor> "And why should a [video game] character conform to and reinforce gender stereotypes? Birdo might have given some transgender kid hope."
21:56:21 <Phantom_Hoover_> :D
21:56:50 <Vorpal> Gregor, I'm not sure how that connection works
21:56:50 <elliott> "One day I can be just like Birdo."
21:57:08 <Gregor> Vorpal: Birdo is the only semi-major transgender videogame character :P
21:57:21 <Vorpal> Gregor, oh, officially?
21:57:22 <Vorpal> huh
21:57:30 <Gregor> Vorpal: Not REALLY officially, but pseudo-officially X-P
21:57:45 <Gregor> In that Birdo was officially a gender-confused male, but in later things was officially female.
21:58:20 <Vorpal> Gregor, how did that happen to begin with
21:58:53 <olsner> when talking about post-op transsexuals in past-tense, do you need to keep track of the time the transition was made to get the right pronoun?
21:58:59 <Gregor> Vorpal: In the SMB2 manual, Birdo was labeled as a "boy who thinks he's a girl". In later things I guess they just decided that she's female. But the implications of that are clear, since both are canonical :P
21:59:12 <Gregor> olsner: Pronouns suck :P
21:59:28 <Vorpal> olsner, I'm not sure anybody has a good answer to that
22:00:04 -!- Mathnerd314 has joined.
22:01:50 <olsner> Vorpal: probably not
22:02:16 <Vorpal> olsner, spivak for everyone?
22:02:20 <elliott> <olsner> when talking about post-op transsexuals in past-tense, do you need to keep track of the time the transition was made to get the right pronoun?
22:02:20 <Gregor> "Yoshi is supposedly a male, but lays eggs like a female. Birdo is supposedly a female, but was originally called a male. And now the two of them are a romantic couple? They were both sexually chaotic as individuals -- this new pairing just made your head hurt thinking about it."
22:02:27 <elliott> olsner: um you're always meant to use the post-transition pronoun...
22:02:29 <elliott> olsner: even pre-op
22:02:31 <Gregor> Yoshi + Birdo = the single greatest video game couple in history :P
22:02:56 <elliott> olsner: you don't think about whether someone has a penis or not before choosing a pronoun :P
22:02:58 <Vorpal> Gregor, blame Japan
22:03:06 <olsner> elliott: right, pre/post-*op* is definitely wrong since the operation is independent of changing gender identity
22:03:10 -!- gon|away has changed nick to goneriku.
22:03:18 <elliott> olsner: "when talking about post-op transsexuals in past-tense" --you
22:03:34 <Vorpal> elliott, "to" != "about"
22:03:45 <elliott> Vorpal: um olsner knows what i mean, you don't
22:03:48 <olsner> elliott: bah, I'll just change that sentence to something else then!
22:03:49 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, what about before they had any conception of their gender identity differing from the norm?
22:04:18 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: it's very rare that people feel 100% comfortable with their identity and then decide to transition...
22:04:27 <elliott> i've never heard of it
22:04:30 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, what about when they were 2 or something?
22:04:38 <Phantom_Hoover_> Before they even had any conception of gender?
22:05:13 <olsner> spivak nouns until sexual maturity!
22:05:14 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: I can guarantee you that no transperson wants to be referred to as what they used to think their gender was no matter what tense :P
22:05:17 <elliott> (OK, I won't actually guarantee that.)
22:05:20 <elliott> olsner: sex != gender
22:05:25 <elliott> so that's a silly thing to say
22:05:50 * Gregor takes a bow.
22:05:50 <Phantom_Hoover_> Spivak nouns until they express a preference!
22:06:01 <Gregor> ... and shoots a tranny with it OH SEE HOW I MADE THAT AMBIGUOUS
22:06:02 <elliott> Gregor: JESUS WAS A GIRL IN A GIRL'S BODY
22:06:14 <olsner> elliott: make that what phantom hoover said instead
22:06:15 <elliott> Gregor: Are you sure it was a bow you shot that tranny with? :|
22:06:21 <Vorpal> Gregor, so what about those cases of ambiguous sex?
22:06:22 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, but what's God's view of the LINGUISTICS of the matter?
22:06:34 <Gregor> elliott: Yes. I put a bow in another bow, and fired the first bow with the second.
22:06:35 <elliott> olsner: Phantom_Hoover_: How about SPIVAK PRONOUNS FOREVER because gendered pronouns are moronic
22:06:41 <elliott> Gregor: Nice [0010].
22:06:44 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, good luck with that.
22:06:49 <Vorpal> Gregor, or the rare condition of having XY but being insensitive to testosterone
22:06:50 <elliott> Is that an [0010] in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
22:06:58 <olsner> hmm, spivak nouns are just ... ugly
22:07:00 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: You think your solution is getting adopted either? :P
22:07:03 <elliott> olsner: ENGLISH IS UGLY :P
22:07:05 <Gregor> Vorpal: GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.
22:07:23 <Phantom_Hoover_> For instance, Jesus' Y chromosome was clearly GOD'S.
22:07:24 <Gregor> elliott: ENGLISH WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.
22:07:26 -!- Sasha has joined.
22:07:27 <elliott> i agree with Gregor a magic man did it
22:07:42 <elliott> Gregor: i shouldn't complain about english. good enough for jesus, good enough for me
22:07:45 <Gregor> `addquote <Phantom_Hoover> For instance, Jesus' Y chromosome was clearly GOD'S.
22:07:49 * Phantom_Hoover_ wonders what genes are on God's Y chromosome.
22:07:53 <HackEgo> 237) <Phantom_Hoover> For instance, Jesus' Y chromosome was clearly GOD'S.
22:08:01 <elliott> this is also why I sleep on a cross every night
22:08:09 <elliott> Gregor: That is not even remotely permanently quotable :P
22:08:20 <Gregor> elliott: YESH IT ISH
22:08:34 <Vorpal> elliott, I agree with Gregor on this one.
22:08:54 <Phantom_Hoover_> Shut up! I'm pondering theogenetics!
22:08:55 <Vorpal> it can be read in another way without the context
22:08:59 <Vorpal> still funny
22:10:04 <elliott> robots
22:10:15 <Vorpal> elliott, any way to quickly get all permutations of a list in python? Quickly as in "easy to write" not "executes fast"
22:10:32 <Vorpal> I feel it should be trivial in a high level language
22:10:59 <Vorpal> like taking the list times itself or such.
22:11:38 <elliott> Vorpal: there is a way but i forget :D
22:11:44 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, what's your opinion on singular "they"?
22:11:45 <Vorpal> elliott, ouch :(
22:11:54 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: Perfectly cromulent.
22:12:01 <Phantom_Hoover_> elliott, I agree.
22:12:06 <elliott> Vorpal: itertools has permutations
22:12:08 <Vorpal> ah
22:12:25 <fizzie> >>> from itertools import permutations
22:12:26 <Phantom_Hoover_> I also think that, logically, the first person pronoun should be made universally "we".
22:12:28 <fizzie> >>> list(permutations([1,2,3]))
22:12:31 <fizzie> [(1, 2, 3), (1, 3, 2), (2, 1, 3), (2, 3, 1), (3, 1, 2), (3, 2, 1)]
22:12:32 <fizzie> Too slow am I.
22:12:38 <fizzie> I blame the phone.
22:12:40 <elliott> System is 827 kB
22:12:42 <elliott> Wheew.
22:12:52 <Phantom_Hoover_> Thus removing all singular/plural distinction in the English pronoun system.
22:12:53 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: We are amused.
22:13:04 <olsner> fizzie: "Too slow am I. The phone I blame."
22:13:15 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: Also, there IS singular/plural distinction.
22:13:19 <elliott> you/y'all
22:13:50 <elliott> WHY IS NETWORK BROKE
22:13:52 <Phantom_Hoover_> I'd go for "youse", personally.
22:14:08 <Vorpal> it gave me a list of tuples. Why...
22:14:10 <fizzie> "Is it true that the plural of 'y'all' is 'all y'all'?", I saw asked somewhere.
22:14:24 <Vorpal> (as in, why tuples)
22:14:28 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, BECAUSE YOU ARE HEADCRAB ZOMBIE!
22:14:41 <fizzie> Well, they're known-length sequences.
22:14:49 <Vorpal> fizzie, ah right, makes sense
22:15:13 <Vorpal> fizzie, I'll just process the result with sed anyway XD
22:15:17 <fizzie> Since it's from itertools, it probably also gives you a generator, not a list.
22:15:30 <Phantom_Hoover_> http://qntm.org/dna
22:15:33 * Phantom_Hoover_ ponders this.
22:15:33 <Vorpal> fizzie, yes indeed I passed it to list
22:15:36 <Vorpal> since I needed a list
22:15:43 <Phantom_Hoover_> [[# (50 - X)% of Yancy's genes are eternal genes with no origin, inherited from Fry, who originally inherited them from his mother.]]
22:16:04 <Phantom_Hoover_> But they're regular genes, not eternal ones.
22:16:19 <Phantom_Hoover_> Hmm, perhaps not...
22:16:32 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: They're eternal in the sense that if you trace their history, it is an infinite loop.
22:16:40 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, no, that's the thing.
22:16:54 <Phantom_Hoover_> They're from Fry's mother, whose genes are entirely normal.
22:17:29 <Phantom_Hoover_> I feel an infinite geometric series coming on...
22:17:33 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Isn't Fry's mother's side the side that Fry is on?
22:17:39 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, no.
22:17:56 <Phantom_Hoover_> Fry is his own paternal grandfather.
22:17:57 <elliott> What kernel module implements qemu's default network card?
22:18:14 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Oh, then that's a weird statement.
22:18:38 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, but I can see a justification through the haze of my ape brain.
22:18:47 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Where did you get that quote from?
22:18:51 <Phantom_Hoover_> It's just proving hard to pin down.
22:18:55 <Phantom_Hoover_> I just linked to it.
22:19:02 <Phantom_Hoover_> http://qntm.org/dna
22:19:41 * Phantom_Hoover_ decides to reduce it to a toy model.
22:19:50 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Ohhh, I was thinking about Yancy JR
22:20:16 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Which made the whole thing kinda nonsense :P
22:20:32 <Phantom_Hoover_> OK, let's reduce the human genome to 4 chromosomes, in 2 homologous pairs.
22:20:49 <elliott> `addquote <Phantom_Hoover> OK, let's reduce the human genome to 4 chromosomes, in 2 homologous pairs.
22:20:49 <HackEgo> 238) <Phantom_Hoover> OK, let's reduce the human genome to 4 chromosomes, in 2 homologous pairs.
22:21:17 <Phantom_Hoover_> (This ignores a few things, most interestingly that Fry's Y chromosome is completely eternal.)
22:22:04 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: Hm, yeah, those are definitely not eternal, they just happen to go backwards and forwards in time before being discarded.
22:25:54 * Phantom_Hoover_ starts smearing dye on a piece of dead tree.
22:26:15 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: I just call that "Saturday".
22:26:49 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover_: don't forget chromosomal crossover
22:27:05 <Phantom_Hoover_> oerjan, LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU
22:27:12 <oerjan> :D
22:28:27 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: "Depending on what X is (see above), this is either disgustingly incestuous (for X ≅ 5) or entirely inoffensive and legal (for X = 50)." This statement is kinda silly too since all humans have some 99.99% of their genes in common with each other :P
22:28:58 <elliott> I JUST WANT A SMALLX TARBALL
22:29:10 <Phantom_Hoover_> Gregor, yes, but 45% is effectively identical to incest genetically.
22:29:15 <elliott> <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover_: "Depending on what X is (see above), this is either disgustingly incestuous (for X ≅ 5) or entirely inoffensive and legal (for X = 50)." This statement is kinda silly too since all humans have some 99.99% of their genes in common with each other :P
22:29:19 <elliott> There's a reason they call it wincest!
22:29:34 <Phantom_Hoover_> Sorry, *sibling incest.
22:29:41 <elliott> [[In my on-going research for alternatives to the X.org full server, I ran across references to a “TinyX” which led me to SmallX, AKA Kdrive. Aside from one, very obsolete reference written for mere mortal users, the whole thing is buried in code-jockey talk.]]
22:29:43 <Phantom_Hoover_> Parental incest is... the same, actually.
22:29:44 <elliott> If you're not a code-jockey
22:29:48 <elliott> why are you trying to replace X.Org.
22:30:48 <elliott> Seriously. Anyone. SmallX. Please.
22:30:59 <Phantom_Hoover_> I *think* this might come down to a fixed point...
22:31:23 <Gregor> elliott: ftp://ftp.mayn.de/pub/really_old_stuff/unix/x11/tinyx/XVGA16.tar.gz
22:31:42 <elliott> Gregor: I love you. How did you find that?
22:31:52 <Gregor> elliott: I googled for the tarball name. It was REALLY difficult.
22:31:59 <elliott> Gregor: That's what I did, so fuck you :P
22:32:06 <Gregor> elliott: I googled it harder.
22:32:13 <elliott> ...OK, googling for XVGA16.tar.gz works WAY better than "smallX tinyX"
22:32:24 <Gregor> "tarball name" :P
22:32:38 <elliott> Gregor: Oh for fuck's sake, it looks like it's just XFree86 TinyX.
22:32:55 <Phantom_Hoover_> OK, I think I have a vague grasp on the thing about the maternal eternal genes.
22:32:58 <elliott> Xtinylib.tar.gz BETTER have some real code.
22:33:13 <Gregor> elliott: I'm betting ... no.
22:33:42 <elliott> Gregor: lolso, teach me how to use the modular X build system.
22:33:56 <elliott> All I want is a single KDrive and Xlib with EVERYTHING DISABLED :P
22:34:02 <Phantom_Hoover_> Probabilistically, 25% of Yancy's genes are inherited from his wife.
22:34:08 <Phantom_Hoover_> At least.
22:35:36 <Gregor> elliott: http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Xserver/InstallGuide <-- although slightly out-of-date, this does show the list of modules you have to build before building xserver kdrive. You'll need to provide the --enable-kdrive option nowadays, and ignore the shitload of stuff it builds AFTER the xserver, but otherwise there ya go.
22:35:53 <elliott> "ignore the shitload of stuff it builds AFTER the xserver"
22:35:55 <elliott> how disable :|
22:36:08 <Gregor> elliott: That's a list of packages essentially, just don't do them.
22:36:26 <elliott> Gregor: Anyway, last I checked the only way to build was (1) 10000000 tarballs or (2) git repository.
22:36:27 <Gregor> elliott: (And note that it shows CVS since that's hyper-old instructions, and everything is in git now, and you should just get the packages anyway, just follow the package names :P )
22:36:43 <Gregor> elliott: For kdrive, I'd estimate 10 tarballs.
22:36:43 -!- MigoMipo_ has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
22:36:51 <elliott> Gregor: over-modular more like
22:37:03 <Gregor> elliott: Yes, it is over-modular, but I'll still take it over imake any day :P

22:48:54 <Vorpal> sure you don't see a remote file created straight away (on the client side)
22:49:05 <Vorpal> but you should see the files you just wrote surely
22:51:06 <elliott> Gregor: Sooo, is there a simpler way than fetching those manually?
22:51:18 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, I know this will sound suspicious, but where's the throne room gone?
22:52:01 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, what throne room?
22:52:21 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, oh. You're playing this game.
22:52:26 <Phantom_Hoover_> Rather childish.
22:52:29 <elliott> Vorpal: You know, the throne room.
22:52:37 <elliott> It's the room with the throne.
22:52:43 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, I'm not playing any game. I'm printing a report
22:53:03 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover_: What do you mean where has it gone?
22:53:14 <Vorpal> elliott, oh. That. It's in Buckingham Palace.
22:53:26 <Vorpal> (or its or whatever)
22:53:28 <Phantom_Hoover_> There's just a bare room where the lobby used to be.
22:53:34 * Phantom_Hoover_ → sleep
22:53:39 -!- Phantom_Hoover_ has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:53:56 <Vorpal> well I could tell you. If you were here
22:57:40 <Vorpal> not sure I would. I seriously didn't have time for MC today, yet I had to clean up his mess
22:58:47 <Vorpal> I should just make the pit deep enough to kill on falling. About twice the current depth iirc. Nothing below it. Should be doable. A pain with the obsidian though.
22:58:48 <Vorpal> oh well
23:00:51 <Vorpal> elliott, I realised while .xz is cool it isn't really usable yet if you want to make sure that everyone can open it.
23:01:02 <Vorpal> (note, windows compat is not an issue in this case)
23:01:07 <Vorpal> (if it was, it would mean zip)
23:01:20 <Vorpal> so tar.bz2 still has it's uses
23:08:14 <pikhq> Vorpal: If you want to make sure everyone can open it, you should use compress.
23:08:31 <pikhq> If you actually want something that *sane distros* can open, use xz.
23:08:40 <Vorpal> pikhq, no, because that would confuse people. Thus they couldn't open it.
23:08:58 <pikhq> Vorpal: Okay, y'know what?
23:09:01 <pikhq> Vorpal: Sharballs.
23:09:04 <pikhq> Vorpal: You may only use shar.
23:09:05 <Vorpal> pikhq, in this case I want a teacher at university to be able to open a lab assignment. I know he use linux. I don't know if he has xz.
23:09:16 <Vorpal> thus best bet: tar.bz2
23:09:20 <Vorpal> or tar.gz
23:09:32 <Vorpal> but the tar.gz is too large for the email system.
23:09:38 <pikhq> Vorpal: Is his distro more than 3 years old? If not, xz is fine. If it is, I suggest you root that box.
23:09:41 <Vorpal> (lots of data files included)
23:09:44 <Vorpal> pikhq, I have no idea
23:09:44 <ineiros> Ended up installing hMod.
23:09:56 <Vorpal> ineiros, oh, interesting
23:10:11 <Vorpal> ineiros, any user guide to it?
23:10:31 <fizzie> There's a wiki.
23:10:50 <Vorpal> ah
23:11:02 <Vorpal> fizzie, is it so complex that a single page isn't enough?
23:11:34 <fizzie> http://wiki.hey0.net/index.php/Main_Page
23:11:44 <Vorpal> oh my... what a long commands page
23:12:01 <fizzie> It's got those, and lots of plugins.
23:12:14 <Vorpal> " * Command: /help --- Shows a list of commands (7 per page). "
23:12:21 <Vorpal> mhm
23:12:39 <Vorpal> ineiros, any kits defined?
23:13:05 <ineiros> Pretty much default configuration, didn't yet check anything else.
23:13:24 <Vorpal> fizzie, also inconsistent. It has /kit without parameters to list kits, but /listwrap instead of /wrap without parameters
23:13:32 <Vorpal> err
23:13:34 <Vorpal> warp*
23:13:37 <Vorpal> (in both cases)
23:13:50 <Vorpal> and why /lighter
23:13:56 <Vorpal> I mean, shouldn't that be a kit :P
23:14:17 <Vorpal> /getpos looks useful. I had a lot of issues trying to work out offsets when building that trap
23:14:41 <elliott> xz sucks because of cpu usage
23:15:07 <Vorpal> elliott, sometimes, such as when preparing a release tarball, that is not an issue
23:15:07 <elliott> ineiros: disabled health?
23:15:10 <fizzie> I think /lighter is not a kit because t was ported from some other thing.
23:15:17 <elliott> Vorpal: but unpacking it still uses cpu.
23:15:37 <Vorpal> elliott, technically so does everything unless you have a separate accelerator chip for that algorithm
23:15:46 <Vorpal> which uses DMA
23:15:58 <elliott> Vorpal: more cpu than gzip though
23:16:00 <elliott> or bzip
23:16:07 <Vorpal> elliott, gzip is very cpu-friendly
23:16:08 <elliott> or azip :)
23:16:17 <Vorpal> and bzip2 uses a lot more cpu for unpacking
23:16:21 <Vorpal> I'm pretty sure about that
23:16:25 <Vorpal> not sure about bzip
23:16:30 <elliott> prolly true
23:16:31 <Vorpal> but no one uses that any more
23:16:45 <elliott> i've never cared that much about ultra small compression in common usage
23:16:53 <elliott> networks aren't so slow that wasting minutes compressing a tarball is worthwhile
23:17:22 <Vorpal> elliott, depends on what you plan to do with it. Download it over 3G? EDGE? Pack it on an install cd?
23:17:23 <pikhq> elliott: xz decompression is actually more CPU friendly than bzip2.
23:17:42 <pikhq> Unless you're using xz -9 or something.
23:17:42 <elliott> edge is not that bad.
23:17:44 <pikhq> But that's crazy.
23:17:48 <elliott> pikhq: Vorpal prolly does
23:17:48 <elliott> :p
23:18:06 <Vorpal> elliott, I used it for testing if it was worthwhile. It wasn't.
23:18:17 <pikhq> It gets you, like, bytes of benefit.
23:18:18 <Vorpal> but no I haven't used -9 beyond some basic testing of xz
23:18:24 <pikhq> And adds hours.
23:18:26 <Vorpal> pikhq, -9 -e ! ;P
23:18:45 <Vorpal> pikhq, note: I only did that as a test. And it saved like 1 MB on an ISO
23:18:53 <Vorpal> took 10-15 minutes to compress
23:18:58 <elliott> I wish lzma(1) had -10 --super-mega-brutish. For Flinix :)
23:19:13 <elliott> Vorpal: Pah! ESO distributed the ICFP ISO COMPLETELY UNCOMPRESSED in... 2009? 2010?
23:19:23 <elliott> And used up our entire bandwidth for the month I might add (100 gigs)

23:20:00 <elliott> Vorpal: heh?

23:28:33 <Gregor> GREGOR GREGOR GREGOR Gregor IS the best idea ever.
23:28:42 <elliott> Gregor: You know how much you love SysV?
23:28:56 <Gregor> I lurve it with a spatula.
23:29:16 <elliott> How hard can it be! SysV was like the most portable OS ever! And old Research Unixes had stupidly simple kernels!
23:29:19 <Gregor> System V ran on 386 :P
23:29:20 <elliott> And it would be AWESOME.
23:29:25 <elliott> Gregor: ...oh.
23:29:27 <elliott> Gregor: well
23:29:29 <elliott> Gregor: RESEARCH UNIX
23:29:29 <Gregor> System V ONLY ran on 386.
23:29:40 <Gregor> We should port it to x86_64 though :P
23:29:46 <Gregor> (Except the source to System V is of course not available)
23:29:46 <elliott> System V ran on the DEC VAX and PDP-11 machines. It also added support for inter-process communication using messages, semaphores, and shared memory.

23:29:51 <elliott> Gregor: ha ha faggot
23:30:12 <elliott> The primary platforms for SVR4 were Intel x86 and SPARC; the SPARC version, called Solaris 2 (or, internally, SunOS 5.x), was developed by Sun
23:30:19 <elliott> what i'm saying is: fag
23:30:25 <Gregor> Oh yeah, R4 and later >_>
23:30:31 <Gregor> SysVR<=3 sucked anyway :P
23:30:32 <Gregor> R4 = ELF
23:30:48 <elliott> Gregor: OK then. Unix Nth Edition (for low N. Like say fourth edition because previous versions were written in assembly.)
23:30:57 <elliott> 1st edition code is available at least :p
23:31:43 <elliott> /nick Leenyos_Torovoltos
23:31:47 <Gregor> elliott: And let's write it in JavaScript!
23:31:48 <Gregor> elliott: And call it JSMIPS!
23:31:59 <elliott> Gregor: Brilliant!
23:32:52 <elliott> Gregor: Seriously though, research Unix on 386, how cool would that be (answer: mega cool)
23:33:58 <Gregor> I HAS KITTY
23:34:21 <elliott> Gregor: (VERSION 7 CAME OUT IN 1979 :P)
23:34:34 <elliott> [[V7 was the first readily portable version of Unix. As this was the era of minicomputers, with their many architectural variations, and also the dawning of the market for 16-bit microprocessors, many ports were completed within the first few years of its release. The first Sun workstations (then based on the Motorola 68010) ran a V7 port by UniSoft; the first version of Xenix for the Intel 8086 was derived from V7]]
23:34:37 <elliott> WHY DO YOU RUIN OUR FUN
23:34:43 <elliott> An x86 port is under active development by Nordier & Associates. The current version is 0.8a. The project has produced a bootable CD image with an installer script.[2]
23:34:44 <elliott> what
23:34:49 <elliott> how is anyone as crazy as us
23:34:59 <elliott> Gregor: Dood http://www.nordier.com/v7x86/index.html :P
23:35:09 <Gregor> elliott: WE LOSE
23:35:12 <Gregor> elliott: How 'bout Unix 32v?
23:35:24 <elliott> There are presently a few supplementary V7/x86-specific documents available:
23:35:25 <elliott> v7x86asref.pdf V7/x86 Assembler Reference Manual
23:35:25 <elliott> v7x86intro.pdf Using V7/x86: A Brief Introduction
23:35:43 <elliott> Gregor: But Unix 32v is Seventh Edition ported to VAX :P
23:35:47 <elliott> Gregor: So it's the same thing.
23:36:09 <Gregor> elliott: I was already typing that before you mentioned v7x86, I was just suggesting it because at least it's already 32-bit :P
23:36:20 <elliott> Gregor: HOWEVER I bet 4th edition would be easy.
23:36:22 <elliott> 4th Edition Nov. 1973 First Unix written in C. It also introduced groups. Number of installations was listed as "above 20". The manual was formatted with troff for the first time.
23:36:29 <elliott> V5 is listed as "Introduced the sticky bit", what a release :P
23:36:44 <elliott> 6th is when people started PORTING it and we want to be the fisrt people to do anything.
23:36:51 <elliott> [[xv6 is a modern reimplementation of Sixth Edition Unix in ANSI C for multiprocessor x86 systems.]]
23:36:55 <elliott> [[It is used for pedagogical purposes in MIT's Operating Systems Engineering (6.828) course.]]
23:37:07 <elliott> Gregor: 4th Edition LET'S DO THIS OKAY
23:37:11 <Gregor> elliott: FAILZ
23:37:40 <Gregor> elliott: Instead let's set up a publicly-available free shell service on v7x86
23:37:40 <elliott> [[The fourth edition of Unix was the first version to have a kernel written in a high level language, C, along with some of the commands. A full and complete copy of Fourth Edition no longer exists.]]
23:38:15 <elliott> Gregor: Not xv6? :p
23:38:33 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
23:38:46 <elliott> "V7 Unix introduced the first version of the modern "Standard I/O" library stdio as part of the system library."
23:39:01 <elliott> [[For many years, MIT had no operating systems course. In the fall of 2002, Frans Kaashoek, Josh Cates, and Emil Sit created a new, experimental course (6.097) to teach operating systems engineering. In the course lectures, the class worked through Sixth Edition Unix (aka V6) using John Lions's famous commentary.]]
23:39:16 <elliott> MIT: Making 2002 feel just like 1975.
23:39:25 <Gregor> <elliott> "V7 Unix introduced the first version of the modern "Standard I/O" library stdio as part of the system library." <-- kinda important X-P
23:39:39 <elliott> Gregor: Whoa, Russ Cox was involved in xv6 X-D
23:39:46 <elliott> Gregor: Also, hey, I swear off stdio and you should too. :p
23:40:01 <coppro> /win/win 48
23:40:09 <Gregor> I lurve stdio.
23:40:22 <elliott> Gregor: But it's terrible!
23:40:51 <elliott> olsner: hmm, you know my microkernel design?
23:42:42 <elliott> I think I just managed to invent an attokernel :P
23:44:15 <elliott> Gregor: OK, I've figured it out.
23:44:27 <elliott> Gregor: We should port the System V kernel as a HURD server.
23:45:26 <Gregor> System V kernel source isn't available.
23:45:39 <Gregor> Except in some enormously derivative form in OpenSolaris.
23:46:34 <elliott> [[ "The network software for Unix was developed on a PDP-11/50, with memory management, two RK05 disk packs, two nine track magtape drives, four dectape drives, 32k words of core, and three terminals. Presently this has been expanded to encompass a DH11 terminal multiplexor, an RP03 moving head disk, a twin platter RF11 fixed head disk, floating point, and 48k of core. User files are stored on the RP03. the RF11 is used as a swap disk and for
23:46:34 <elliott> temporary file storage; one RK05 platter contains the system files, and the second contains login and accounting information. In the near future, the system will be expanded to 128k words of core memory with 10 dial in and 10 hard wired terminal lines"
23:46:34 <elliott> "The base operating system occupies 24.5k words of memory. this system includes a large number of device drivers, and enjoys a generous amount of space for I/O buffers and system tables. A minimal system would require 40k words of hardware memory. It should be noted that Unix also requires the memory management"]]

23:47:40 <Gregor> elliott: I can't make v7x86 boot after installing :(
23:48:11 <elliott> Gregor: Probably it requires a bootloader?
23:48:15 <elliott> http://www.nordier.com/v7x86/install.html
23:48:19 <elliott> Note that the install program expects to install to an existing V7/x86 hard disk partition. This can be created with any fdisk compatible utility that allows the partition type to be specified. The V7/x86 partition type is 0x72 (114 decimal).
23:48:43 <Gregor> elliott: Yeah, I did that. I wonder how you think I installed without that.
23:48:51 <elliott> Gregor: Sparkly magic?

23:50:02 <elliott> The first CPU?
23:50:04 <elliott> Does it do SMP?
23:50:06 <elliott> In an OS course?
23:50:13 <elliott> An introductory OS course?
23:50:13 <elliott> Fuck MIT is hardcore.

23:54:25 <Gregor> :P

23:56:28 <pikhq> elliott: s/is/was/, I'm sure.
23:56:32 <elliott> Gregor: Don't you mean "awesome"?
23:56:34 <elliott> pikhq: wut?
23:56:35 <Gregor> At present, binaries are available for FreeBSD. Source code should be available at a future date. D'AWW BOO
23:56:42 <elliott> pikhq: xv6 is V6 unix reimpl. for modern hardware
23:57:04 <pikhq> elliott: They no longer use SICP for the intro CS course; I'd imagine the rest of it has been dumbed down similarly.
23:57:11 <elliott> pikhq: No, vx6 is a new thing.
23:57:13 <elliott> 2006.
23:57:15 <elliott> Russ Cox was involved.
23:57:28 <elliott> And no, all that was changed is 6.001 or whatever it's called :P
23:57:48 <elliott> Gregor: What I would like to see is a ring 0-only OS implementing my syscall inlining idea but it pretty much requires a HLL-based OS...
23:58:00 <elliott> BCPL Compiler
23:58:01 <elliott> This is a port to V7/x86 of an old BCPL compiler from Martin Richards and the Tripos Research Group at Cambridge University. The port includes both an interpreter and an x86 native code generator. The original software dates from around 1979.
23:58:01 <elliott> ACK
23:58:01 <elliott> The Amsterdam Compiler Kit (ACK) was originally developed at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, and had its heyday during the 1980s. Several years ago, it was released under a Berkeley-style license. This port adds support for Solaris x86 and for V7/x86.
23:58:34 <pikhq> elliott: SMP in an intro OS course? Fuck MIT is hardcore.
23:58:50 <elliott> pikhq: I TOLD YOU
23:58:55 <elliott> I'm not sure it is though.
23:59:11 <elliott> <elliott> Gregor: What I would like to see is a ring 0-only OS implementing my syscall inlining idea but it pretty much requires a HLL-based OS...
23:59:15 <elliott> anyone have any idea how to do this
23:59:18 <elliott> without writing a new compiler?
23:59:18 <elliott> :p
23:59:32 <elliott> Or, well, without writing a *complicated* new compiler.
23:59:44 <elliott> (for safety, that is; you can easily do this if you let processes do whatever they want)
