diana_coman: spyked, but it doesn't see even 1 side fully

mod6: i never eat pancakes
phf: like i said couple of days ago i'm going to forward merge that whole right side, right now the only advise is to delete the right hand side because none of the extant V's can resolve that graph, obviously a suboptimal suggestion. i'm working on a better grapher, but until then..
phf: *advice
asciilifeform: phf: didja try it with my ancient v99 ? how does it die ?
phf: let me retest it, but as far as i recall it was producing a patch order that doesn't press
asciilifeform: interesting
asciilifeform: cyclical graph ?
phf: asciilifeform: nope, another form that as of now doesn't have a name
asciilifeform: canhaz rough topological sketch ?
phf: asciilifeform: i need to upload it into my brain first, let me get back to you on that one
asciilifeform: aite
asciilifeform: the http://btcbase.org/patches?patchset=vtools picture suggests that it's the classic mistake of spuriously bifurcated tree, the kind of thing that had trinque & mircea_popescu raging in the old days and prompted manifest.txt etc
asciilifeform: it should still press tho ( into a broken proggy, but this is the fault of whoever forgot to unify the tree )
phf: asciilifeform: well, i'm not sure what "spuriously bifurcated tree" means in this case, the goal was stated in the one of the posts, that i'm explicitly maintain two separate branches, that hinge on two separate manifest paths. this is the kind of stuff v is designed for neh? press to vdiff_sha_static to get one thing, press to vtools_vpatch_newline to get the other
asciilifeform: oh hm
phf: there is a manifest in this version of vtools
asciilifeform: so if the 2 are genuinely separate items, why would it break on press
asciilifeform bbl,tea
phf: ah see the graph is misleading, because btcbase base grapher culls it. we've ran into similar issue back in the heavy experimental trb days, so one of the very first things that the btcbase distinguished itself on is producing a graph of possible presses, rather than pure antecedent/descendent. this was discussed and documented in the logs, in before "why you do that!1"
phf: in order to produce a graph there's a walk to root phase, the walk keeps track of press state at each node and dismisses connections edges that result in an invalid state. now WHY this is needed is because each individual vpatch doesn't keep track of the entire state, but only about its particular subset of state that changed.
phf: if you want to reduce the problem to a "don't do this" policy, then it stems from repeated hunks across multiple vpatches, i.e. if you have two or more vpatches that have identical state transitions. something like that is bound to happen when you're attempting to port a feature between branches, as is the case with vtools. (i.e. you patched foo.c in one file "remove broken behavior", you now want to also introduce same fix to the other branch)
phf: so policy wise, like you say "no cyclical graphs" you can say "no identical changes in more than one v patch"
phf: manifest doesn't solve this problem, because manifest doesn't get any kind of priority treatment. if you hinged your press purely on a manifest descendent/antecedent chain then everything else will just work™
asciilifeform: phf: right, i grasped this, hence why i wrote a demo impl of trinqueian algo ( http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2018-April/000296.html ) which actually does solve it
phf: right
asciilifeform: but so far nobody seems to see it as dire enuff problem to actually resort to this
phf: yeah, obviously total state eliminates all the "multiple state transitions in a single vpatch" related problems
asciilifeform: i was the loudest whine against the trinqueian algo, but then grasped the wisdom of it meself and actually wrote a working proggy for it
asciilifeform brb,meat
phf: well, i kind of dig the emergent v graph behaviors, so i don't mind it either way, though btcbase doesn't press cleanly either (^ "all extant V's"). nothing keeping one from tacking on additional state to a crystalized vpatch either, and then you're stuck with another "though shall not, because reasons"
phf: (btcbase doesn't choke on circular graphs, though in a general case it bails. if the circle is in the descendants order is determined by walk's order of entry, a circle back to genesis though can still be broken by explicitly designated something as "genesis", etc.)
phf: http://btcbase.org/graph.svg?patchset=vtools&type=transition vs. http://btcbase.org/graph.svg?patchset=vtools&type=ad
phf: also http://btcbase.org/graph.svg?patchset=stable&type=transition vs http://btcbase.org/graph.svg?patchset=stable&type=ad
mircea_popescu: in other lulz from the slutfields, "thepantiechrist"
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-10#1833125 << something the manifest should actually fix ; if it's included why doesn't it fix it ?☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-10 14:43 phf: so policy wise, like you say "no cyclical graphs" you can say "no identical changes in more than one v patch"
mircea_popescu: moreover, how can "more than one" vpatch be ~identical~ ? items of the same name and contents are the only items that have the same hash, which is the only basis for identity.
mircea_popescu: how are you distinguishing those more than one patches of the same content by the same name ?
phf: mircea_popescu: i didn't say more than one vpatch are identical, i said that they shouldn't contain identical changes. a single vpatch can contain changes for several files. if two vpatches have a same subset of changes to individual files you have a problem.
mircea_popescu: why ?
mircea_popescu: i don't understand this, you mean patch A having changes a, b, d, e (ie, 4 different patch sections) and B having c, d, e, f ?
phf: yes
mircea_popescu: why would this be a problem ?
mircea_popescu: let me ask you this : is your visualizer essentially a by-file processor ? because this'd be wrong, the concept of "file" is meaningless, entirely just like "new line". text administration flows by viewport and so on.
phf: i don't know what a by file processor is
phf: actually, i think i have a memory of that, and no btcbase is entirely hash first
mircea_popescu: the only reason i can imagine someone'd have the problem you describe is if they built their thing around the primitive "file" rather than around the primitive "patch"
mircea_popescu: so if it's built around patches and the patches are different what difference does it make that two different patches might apply the same tranforms to the same files ?
phf: mircea_popescu: the problem i describe exists in every single V implementation, hence none of them can press a particular graph
mircea_popescu: this may well be. i just don't get why.
phf: well, i'm having hard time thinking about it, yet alone articulating it. like i told ascii (before we continued talking about it anyway), i need some time to reupload the problem, because i haven't thought about it in a while.
mircea_popescu: not very much though.
phf: i haven't thought about it very much?
mircea_popescu: there isn't very much time!
mircea_popescu: however much time you might need to think, there isn't very much time altogether, because we can't sit around with an unresolved dilemma of both "this is the grapher use it" and "don't use it, doesn't work".
phf: ah ah
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the headache is from the fact of notion of 'file' having been baked quite firmly into unix patch util. the only 'final solution' presently known to asciilifeform for the entire class of topological ugh, is the trinquian cut.
asciilifeform: i suppose there is also the other variant, where manifest.txt actually gets speshul treatment. but imho that's ugly.
asciilifeform: ( in trinquian algo, it is impossible to create multiple paths to the same state without creating a cycle, and the latter are detected by the cycle finder )
mircea_popescu: in my own notes phf had written a replacement!
mircea_popescu: recall, the huge discussion re patch / vpatch ?
asciilifeform: iirc his replacement still follows the ancient algo.
asciilifeform has not eaten phf's proggy yet
mircea_popescu: that's why i asked!
phf: originally my replacement was for diffing and patching exclusively, not the graph resolution problems. i was tasked with a replacement around the time when my food work got heavy, and i'm only now revisiting it. the problem wasn't even verbalized until closer the the end of vtools development, because particular choice of vtools delivery demonstrated the problem to begin with
mircea_popescu: right.
phf: btcbase (being a sprawling common lisp beast) has one of the possible solutions actually implemented and working. i'm wrestling the essence of it out, enough to add some kind of graph sorter to vtools
mircea_popescu: i'm not proposing you should be hung or anything.
phf: i figured that's not the case, i'm just reiterating the logs for the logs, because the evil twin of not reading the logs is apparently forgetting what was read in the logs
asciilifeform: imho dispensing with 'files as a unit' is The Right Thing, rather than complicated graph walkers. but i'ma not replay the trinque thread.
mircea_popescu: and the smalle third brother is reference-by-memory, where i say dumb shit like "that @@ discussion" instead of putting in a link.
mircea_popescu: then ten years later memory's faded and nobody alive can untangle the yarn anymore.
phf: personally-advantageous-obfuscation by reference-by-memory, we're reinventing the empire here
asciilifeform: lol
mircea_popescu: ikr.
mircea_popescu: fwiw, memory never was anything other than "personally advantageous". them wetram cells gotta pay the glucose bills.

mircea_popescu: maybe if we keep going in this vein we can get the un to sponsor trilema.
BingoBoingo: Sometimes the implied threat works better making the technology behave
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> maybe if we keep going in this vein we can get the un to sponsor trilema. << Phf hasn't turned the chromebook into ladypants yet
phf: BingoBoingo: i think it's about the right mindset though, can have all the tools in the world, and you're still going to look like a jerk off. nah, i think i just need to get my head game straight
mircea_popescu: your what ?
BingoBoingo: His headgame, the series of puzzles he presents to size up strangers.
phf: it's the lingo cool kids use these days
mircea_popescu: apparently http://btcbase.org/log/2013-08-22#251228☝︎

BingoBoingo: !!up Scwepp
deedbot: Scwepp voiced for 30 minutes.
Scwepp: Did men create everything in this world?
diana_coman: Scwepp, did you solve all the other, more close to home problems and that's the only trouble you have left?
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-06#1832349 << yes, I am interested in trying this☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-07-06 17:24 trinque: maybe PeterL or danielpbarron want to give it a try too
mircea_popescu: ave1 ^ btw ( the article, not the retard)
diana_coman: huh, no stamina even, where are the retards d'antan
mircea_popescu: i was just thinking, it's so rare for one to take a hint.
diana_coman: there were at least 2 pointy hints this time!
asciilifeform: wtf is a scwepp anyway
diana_coman: the sound made in the void between the ears?
mircea_popescu: speaking of pointy things, got any shiny rock ?
diana_coman: ahaha, I just dug up some q67
mircea_popescu: yay!
PeterL: so I have been looking at v. (specifically asciilifeform's python version) it seems to me that there should be a "pruning" step after the flow is laid out to remove any patches that are not ancestors of the desired leaf, so that you would not have to manually remove patches.
asciilifeform: PeterL: read again the algo. at no point will it attempt to press a patch that is not an ancestor of the selected leaf.
PeterL: but then why are people having trouble with the two branches of vtools?
asciilifeform: i'm still waiting to hear what, specifically, happens on v99 re subj ( currently hands full, haven't tested personally )
PeterL: it seems like with branches a-b-c and a-b-d it ends up making a flow a-b-c-d ?
diana_coman: fwiw it's not a matter of pressing weird stuff - v.pl doesn't even report some patches in the flow at all if ALL patches in both branches are present
asciilifeform brb,meat
diana_coman: the actual pressing as far as v reports the flow works as expected
mircea_popescu: PeterL you know there are limits to this hobbyist approach.
PeterL: yes, I know
mircea_popescu: solving any problem consists of carefully loading very finely defined borders of issues in one's head. the hobbyst approach relies on a sort of "generally speaking", consisting of "people" and "having trouble" and "in the general area". as you might imagine, the mismatch is deeply irritating to the first set.
PeterL: alright, I will try to refine my language
diana_coman: did anyone actually press the re-grind of mp-wp genesis ? (this: http://thewhet.net/2018/06/mp-wp-genesis-regrind/ )?
mircea_popescu: presumably, hanbot. why, it dies ?
diana_coman: today is clearly not my day for working stuff; it's the weirdest thing I've seen: v.pl dies at *different files* at each run complaining that sha sum doesn't match
diana_coman: and on one hand the file complained about has only *one* entry in the genesis vpatch i.e. just created so wtf
diana_coman: and on the other hand sure enough the hash calculated on whatever it spew of it is the one it reports and ofc it doesn't match what is in the vpatch
mircea_popescu: epic.
mircea_popescu: encoding issue ? did some magic utshits make it in maybe ?
diana_coman: so I'm asking here as honestly I had quite enough of software for today
diana_coman: no idea but fwiw I was playing with it on the rockchip; as far as I can tell both lobbes and esthlos used some previous versions; (btw esthlos can you maybe show the date of the post somewhere convenient? it's really weird to have to guess it/search for it)
diana_coman: ah, um, nv esthlos ; found it at the bottom, lol
mircea_popescu: ftr date should be at top, in the byline, with the author's name under the title~!
diana_coman: that's where I was looking for it!
mircea_popescu: "it’s not a stop game in itself" -> "it's not in itself a game stopper"
diana_coman: right
mircea_popescu: english is practically speaking sorted the other way.
diana_coman: fixed, thanks
PeterL: trinque: from http://trinque.org/2018/07/06/cuntoo-bootstrapper-preview/ "You must supply the script with a working kernel config for your target hardware." << is there a reference on how to get a config?
ben_vulpes: PeterL: i started from the output of 'make menuconfig' and pruned it over time
ben_vulpes: (from /usr/src/linux on a gentoo)
asciilifeform: PeterL: if it's a 'common' iron, e.g. x60, or pizarro opteron, or rockchip -- then can base it off a asciilifeform
asciilifeform: -config
asciilifeform: otherwise yer on your own
PeterL: I was thinking of trying to repurpose an old macbookpro I had lying around
asciilifeform: PeterL: iirc phf had some recipe for these
asciilifeform: btw, phf, dollars to doughnuts you have a loose battery connector. the whine and reset unixtime is dead giveaway
asciilifeform: ( turn on from the wall with entirely removed battery, you get the whine 24/7, the inductors were sized for batt charge + run load )
