: shinohai: I told n6 to just install OpenBSD
. Then he found a guide to set up a "desktop" which convinced him to edit fstab (treat as read only). Got him to reinstall and find a saner guide. Didn't check his hardware and because Nvidia his resolution is painful. Directed to keep reading man pages. ☟︎

is probably a much better n00b suggestion

: trinque: He's on OpenBSD
now and a six month hold order
: Just remember OpenBSD
still contains plenty of ways to hang yourself. On the plus side almost all of them are very well documented.
: BingoBoingo: you had a favourite book re: openbsd
i recall ?
: ;;later tell n6 Step 1: Just run OpenBSD
for now Step 2: transcribe and build "Lions' Commentary on UNIX 6th Edition, with Source Code" Step 3: Six monthe of logs should be up, then you may Gentoo
: then in 6-12mos we can talk about replacing the thing with OpenBSD
: I am open to offering options like the openbsd
installer for say X, other things
: Logged on 07-08-2015 18:44:44; gernika: General question - is there value in continuing to test stator, and future versions of it, on OpenBSD
? Or should I abandon that and just test on Gentoo from now on?
: Ah right. No problems building statically on OpenBSD
: Incidentally I spent about 1hr attempting to build rotor on OpenBSD
- got buried in tiny differences between bsd/linux.

: <n6> might try openBSD
after this.. << openbsd
, an os that doesn't take much fucking with where bitcoin might actually build with vs gentoo where its known to build but the os cannot be built by mortals.
: trinque: But for a build your first *nix Upgrading OpenBSd
to -stable seems best documented
: might try openBSD
: n6: Practice on different *nic first. Install OpenBSD
upgrade to stable. May have to patch bitcoind, but learn building from source in very documented way.
: I'm not sure rc is jsut the plan9 shell. On Openbsd
I see those two letter attached to all kinds of scripts and Openrc is apparently best Gentoo init.
thinks something like OpenBSD
uses for authenticating repository keys for anonCVS could work for important node connections
: I'll prolly just wait for Eulora emacs edition. There's no source package floating around for cg toolkit so it won't openBSD
unless I rip it out.
: With the rest of my stuff running atm I'm almose using 1/3 of my RAM for the first time since I've moved to OpenBSD
: if my suspect is true, this very neatly shows openbsd
as a superior os.
went from fairly stable 224-236 MB of ram usage to a very flat 986 MB the very flat makes me suspect OpenBSD
: Random turd. Could be OpenBSD
memory handling weird
: "One of the first things I did after installing OpenBSD
back in the day was set up a 6bone tunnel and ping6 all three other IPv6 sites out there. I was living in the future. Fifteen years later, and well... Fuck IPv6."
: Logged on 30-07-2015 00:02:16; phf: trinque: probably same reason openbsd
is not the blessed b-a target platform

: I'm curious why these guys don't seem to have considered using openbsd
as a basis
dead yet? I just grew to like it, so I'm sure it must be
decided it much prefers this, because the way to turn everything to shit is to surround everyone doing anything useful with a bunch of operational idiots.
: Logged on 24-07-2015 06:27:43; BingoBoingo: Personally I hope that OpenBSD
treats MicroShaft with the same Courtesy they did MP after the check clears

: phf: i have not personally tried openbsd
on them. but note that if you buy the 'apu' model, must also buy the metal tin. there are no screwholes for heat sink. it is pressed on by the board mounting upside-down in its native tin case.
: phf: You edit login.conf on openbsd
to free up ram, yes?
: asciilifeform: fwiw i've not tried pcengines yet, but i might get it for an additional openbsd
machine on your recommendation. compared to soekris though a lot of boards that i tried have dodgy reliability. i.e. random crashes. like BingoBoingo said though, this might just be a reputation impression
: re atom, it is 32bit only. i tried running stator on atom board with openbsd
, it overheats, deferring until i figure out a cooling solution
: <asciilifeform> wat << OpenBSD
doesn't maintain binary compatibility between releases. They do stuff like kill deterministic rand() between 5.6 and 5.7
: Logged on 23-07-2015 01:20:23; mod6: my one gentoo (all ascii's patches through verifyall x86-64/glibc) build got all the way up to where nsl is wedged. but my openbsd
one is crawling along on verify all also... so far: height=220047

: mod6 interesting that I ran into that on OpenBSD
once, but got around it on a second try, not using libressl.
: Anyone running OpenBSD
and radeon graphics. 5.7 seems to actually improve quite a bit over 5.6 in this front.
: not bad; I continue to see parallels between gentoo and openbsd
took advantage of this Qntra downtime to update OpenBSD
to 5.7 release and then compile/install 5.7 stable
has found the openbsd
manpages to be in a class of their own
: my openbsd
one is crawling along.
's upgrade process is surprisingly (and refreshingly) easy
: mod6: Was your OpenBSD
recipe made public somewhere?
: As far as testing, so far everything seems to be working ok -- i've fully sync'd 1 stator build, and i've got 2 more full sync's running curretly: one gentoo x86-64 w/glibc & one OpenBSD
: In other news, I noticed this blurb on the OpenBSD
octeon page today: "In June 2015 USB support was added which finally allowed installing to local disk on machines lacking a CF slot."
: asciilifeform: Build on OpenBSD
with flags I use and missing from 0.5.x atm like getpeerinfo
: Anyone as of yet spot my OpenBSD
0.7-ish build in the wild. Returns version 0.7.3.9 for the time being
was planning if acquired mac mini to install max ram, max sub $200 SSD, OpenBSD
5.6, Set up SSH keys, bitcoind sync, and ship
: My OpenBSD
bitcoind has stopped syncing: trying connection x.x.x.x:8333 lastseen=-371358.4hrs lasttry=-399136.2hrs | it had been syncing from the address in the qntra post.
: SO finally got 0.7.2 ish built on OpenBSD
5.6 again. Turns out the problem this whole week was pointing at the wrong BDB version
wonders how his 0.7.2 qt build ever worked on OpenBSD
: <+gernika> mod6 I've attempted syncing on OpenBSD
again and am now past block 168000 and have reached 185126. It's going very very slowly though. << good to hear though ☟︎

: <BingoBoingo> phf: No, not yet. On OpenBSD
I'm running an 0.7.2 derivative with LibreSSL 2.0 just to see how it behaves. << how's the libressl build going?
: mod6: which openbsd
package provides realpath?
: read your readme... so yeah, months and months ago I was able to build a dynamic bitcoind on openbsd
, but that was the exact issue after statically linked: seg fault.
: <mod6> phf: i built on 5.6 but I can't seem to get mine to be be statically built :( << First thing to understand about OpenBSD
is that it is a weird unix. Not as weird as Linux, but differently weird.
: phf: No, not yet. On OpenBSD
I'm running an 0.7.2 derivative with LibreSSL 2.0 just to see how it behaves.
: BingoBoingo: have you tried making static build on openbsd
? i seem to recall you were running a bunch of openbsd
finally trying to recreate my OpenBSD
0.7.2-ish qt build. Must have lost the original sources that worked somewhere down the line
: interesting. I didn't see any updates on openbsd
saying that the nfs turd was no longer needed
: running openbsd
. I thought ascii had been using netbs
: pete_dushenski: I thought that openbsd
didn't support the usb storage driver for edgerouter
: first you unplug the usb drive from inside the edgerouter, plug it into your computer, install openbsd
on it, unpack it, reinstall the drive in the edgerouter, establish a serial connection, and start talking.
: But last I read booting OpenBSD
required booting over the network, rather than install on the USB drive due to lack of a USB driver
: pete_dushenski: Didja find a way to boot OpenBSD
on the edgerouter from USB or are you using the nfs boot option?
: mircea_popescu: (this is compiling stator on openbsd
: mod6: had to run as root to get around openbsd
memory limits on normal user accounts. There are other ways.
