thimbronion: asciilifeform: is this still a good guide for building a gentoo system?
asciilifeform: thimbronion: mno. will ~not~ result in a working gentoo, as it features 'emerge --sync' from now-dead repos.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: this + asciilifeform's retrogentoo mirror, however, will.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-08-20 17:50:24 asciilifeform: Aerthean: if you use this gentoo, you will probably also want to use my packages repo . in /etc/portage/make.conf , GENTOO_MIRRORS="" .
asciilifeform: thimbronion: lemme know if yer setting up such a box and get stuck somewhere. i have a dozen of these going.
verisimilitude: Too few understand what a compiler is, which is a representation transformer.
asciilifeform: dpb: and don't hesitate to ask if you get stuck.
verisimilitude: Thus, the (likely) only sensible way to write a compiler is as a term rewriting system.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: while not untrue, it is rather like to say 'the only sensible way to build a garbage truck is as a gas-expansion system'. i.e. not usefully specific.
verisimilitude: Very few aspects of typical compilers couldn't be expressed as static rulesets. Seeing a compiler express them procedurally in code is an obscenity.
verisimilitude: GCC probably has more files than lines of code I've ever written.
verisimilitude: Back to the original point, few even understand this.
verisimilitude: Too many use the idiocy ``transpiler'' in ignorance.
verisimilitude: Well, now I'm just remembering a tiny compiler I wrote which was rather procedural in nature, unfortunately.

asciilifeform: wb cgra !
cgra: trinque: i've been playing with your item some more, specifically seems like i've managed to build an arm64 equivalent. but wanted to ask: did you find out yet why does gnat build get ill if using multiple build jobs?
snsabot: Logged on 2020-09-07 19:30:13 trinque: asciilifeform and shinohai, find instructions to build the musltron here
cgra: asciilifeform: hi!
cgra: trinque: also, got a handful of related notes to perhaps share, or do you already have a significantly different, new item on your table?
asciilifeform: cgra: re your finds from before btw
snsabot: Logged on 2020-12-04 15:22:55 asciilifeform: "Finite Field Arithmetic." Chapter 21A-Ter: Fix for a False Alarm in Ch.14; "Litmus" Errata. << cgra et al.
cgra: asciilifeform: i went to explore the (originally mostly unknown to me) arm64 land after realizing amd64 opcode encoding is hideously complex... in the hopes of finding a better place to study binary auditability
shinohai: <<< "Stop being mean to us!!!"
asciilifeform: cgra: indeed hideous. worst aspects of x86.
cgra: << yeah, sorry i didn't ack! i read the article and found as previously discussed

asciilifeform: a++
asciilifeform: shinohai: recurrent lulzmine
asciilifeform: shinohai: rather like e.g. systemd, is a peculiarly persistent effort to backport microshit dysfunction to linux
shinohai: Oh yeah, I remembered all the lulzy discussion re: Wayland in #t ... RIP phf
asciilifeform: (i.e. abandons the ~one and only~ mega-win from x11 -- ability to run proggies on remote machine and have'em vector-draw on arbitrary local display exactly as if they were local)
shinohai: In other turdware news this morn:
asciilifeform: shinohai: afaik dun affect 1.4.x. see whether you can unearth the actual patch tho, might be interesting
asciilifeform: theoretically oughta nail folx using 2.x tho
shinohai: Just saw it come across feed, was planning to go spelunking later to see if could locate.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in solzhenitsyn's axe: fresh usg lulz
snsabot: (trilema) 2016-03-30 asciilifeform: solzhenitsyn's thing with 'if every man hit the arresting kgb agent with an axe' is not wholly mistaken, but consider, individual bee sting does not kill a bear. ~hive~ stings.
