asciilifeform: next step of tech-evolution after soy etc
mircea_popescu: the procedure, transparently from empirical data as well as doubtless following their bayesian deductive logic would be, that since they no longer have the capacity to nuke anyone, it then follows they'll necessarily win a nuke war -- in the imagination.

bvt: after ffa I will have a look at other things (like ripping out kernel rng, having another look at gnat-arm64 internals, as it seems there is no ongoing work on this front atm). i expect to get something useful as a result, and maintain it in long term.

asciilifeform: i.e. connect to one, its state changes, and it sends message to others, which majoritate ? ☟︎
trinque: nope, but this is exactly the kind of thing that an actual compute substrate would do
trinque: upstack, it's not just a step around lack of static linking, but also deterministic reproduction of config state
asciilifeform: right
trinque: (of course, not actual determinism since no deterministic gcc)
asciilifeform: it's funny, imho, how heathens fucked the softs stack to the point where it actually makes sense to pass a whole-machine state around
asciilifeform: ( which afaik they do not do , 'because slow', cuz nobody can be arsed to asm iguess )

trinque: not to compliment that stack of chairs, but yes, they do this

trinque: I don't know of any minorityreportronic extension to the thing

trinque: Mocky: can I encourage you to produce an ebuild for your gns item when done?
trinque: speaking of which, if ave1 is not going to produce an ebuild for his gcc, I imagine that's next priority on my end.
mircea_popescu: bvt i don't think it's wasted either ; and for that matter came off too strong on the side of whatever my point was there.
mircea_popescu: trinque, is the idea to ebuild ~everything ?
trinque: yep, I think I need to demonstrate this a few times before it takes with others
mircea_popescu: but v already does dependency handling.
mircea_popescu: is the idea here "ebuild as an automake" ?
trinque: build process automation, recall what I wrote produces a v-tree of ebuilds sufficient to have a booting linux
trinque: would be entirely sensible to have the source v-trees grafted into the same tree.
mod6: trinque: Speaking of an ebuild for ave1's musltronic tools, I've got one that works. I've also got one for diana_coman's keccak V tools package.
mircea_popescu: traditionally most everyone uses autoconf/automake for build automation fwis. well, at least eulora does.
mod6: I still consider them "in-progress", but will forward what I have along to you here by Monday. (I wanted to get these ones built before the trb one - which I'm just starting on now.)
mod6: There will be a blog post I make about how I want through the ebuild process, but probably closer to month-end.
trinque: I don't see how v denotes "build A, then B, then C package"
trinque: mod6: oh hell yes
mircea_popescu: i don't think it permits the notion of "package". but it will press to your intended destination, all leaves up to it.
mircea_popescu: v notion of dependency isn't "package" based.
mircea_popescu: what's a package, even ?
trinque: I can see the continuous symbolic space mircea_popescu wants, but the cuntoo thing was exactly "capture these packages before they can't even be built anymore" plus a snapshot of a working build toolchain to do so.
mircea_popescu: this it was.
mircea_popescu: nothing wrong with it, it was so by agreement and deliberately not accidentally. now the problem of digestion, however...
mircea_popescu: if we wanted fucking portage we could have just imported portage. but i think we just as deliberately did NOT want it ; we wanted v.
mircea_popescu: and the reasons we wanted v were very much specifically and centrally "so such a thing as portage is can NOT be had, and such problems as it solves can not be solved"
asciilifeform: re autoconf, asciilifeform considers autoconfism an evil, and none of his productions ever used it or ever will
mircea_popescu: i am not even disputing that. i think large projects (ie, again, eulora) used it as a ... well, default evil. "gotta use something, wtf can do".

asciilifeform: nobody needs 10MB of #ifdef dec_vax ....
mircea_popescu: the fundamental problem remains, however, that a sufficiently large c/cpp code snippet will not build on any machine.

asciilifeform: sufficiently toejam-encrusted, indeed not
asciilifeform: but e.g. trb , pretty heavy, 0 autoconf (in the proggy per se, that is; there is some in the deps, however)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: re 'ebuilds', as i understand trinque's angle was/is to organically replace gentoo's ebuild duct tape with vtron
mircea_popescu: all this said, i don't believe if someone wrote an ebuilds for say ffa they'd thereby degrade ffa.
asciilifeform: it'd be a very trivial ebuild, lol. given as uses gprbuild, which actually worx correctly.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, the main problem here seems to be "what allowances to build system do we make in the fundamental"
asciilifeform: (sorta like a 'make' not written by tards)
mircea_popescu: and yes indeedy, i'd much rather mandate a "your project must buuld on gprbuild" than a "your project must include ebuild", if there's mandatin'.
asciilifeform: ftr ada's 'gprbuild' is the 1st 'make'-like automator asciilifeform ever used that he did not want to throw against the wall erryday
mircea_popescu: also dunno how well it works on cthings
trinque: and it'll go build e.g. ncurses if your thing needed it?
asciilifeform: worx at least on c/ada mixture, e.g. my udp lib
asciilifeform: i have not tried it with megafauna like trb
trinque: or is this "in six years time we'll have systems that work" ☟︎
mircea_popescu: he has a point there, in that at least portage will emerge a complete world, for whatever any other complaints one might harbor
asciilifeform: aha, it's moar or less lang-agnostic. but it also is an orc half-implementation of v (attempts to find dependencies, and to check sigs, but for some reason the latter is optional, and the former only quasi-worx)
mircea_popescu: trinque, do me a favour an' state the problem in yoru own words so as to see how synced we're here
mircea_popescu: ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, indeed.
mircea_popescu: not even that lang-agnostic, gotta have python.
asciilifeform: well yes, was speaking of the payloads strictly

mircea_popescu: if gotta-have-python anyway, why am i wasting spyked's time with hutch&hoot, might as well use python for scripting.
diana_coman: fwiw re gprbuild and legacy c/cpp-ism: cal3d lib builds with gprbuild absolutely fine; CS however not at all and it's not a trivial thing to port it either as far as I could tell at a quick look.
trinque: my intent here has been to stablize the workbench and then make a *hard* break with the whole stack ☟︎
mircea_popescu: diana_coman, nor will anything else made by idiots, which is to say 70% of the kernel and 95% of the userspace.
trinque: asciilifeform's mips-vm thing could be one candidate for the hard break ☟︎
diana_coman: I expect exactly that, yes.
mircea_popescu: trinque, i meant the problem from this other side.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: imho python is one of the cheapest heathenisms to perma-kill. if e.g. spyked's miniature lisp could be grown to adulthood, can dispense with python/perl/bash/etc
asciilifeform: the fundamental insight is circa '15 -- script lang dun need gc
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, not if gotta ebuild. if you ebuild, suddenly python lives forever.
asciilifeform: observe that v itself , orig asciilifeform wrote in python, on napkin, but since re-baked by many folx many times in other scriptrons
mircea_popescu: i personally doubt such a thing as a lisp portage can be made. but then again i have no coding experience.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: can't resist to ask, wai
mircea_popescu: i can't explain it. hence "personally"
asciilifeform: there is even a (sad, disused, esthlos went to bottom of sea) but last i saw -- working -- cl vtron
asciilifeform: pretty much 95% of a 'portage' right there
mircea_popescu: yes, 95%.

mircea_popescu: kinda what we're trying to figure out -- what we want and why we want it.
mircea_popescu: but yes, i wanna hear trinque

mircea_popescu: and your solution seems to me a bit of smoke and magic, because what will you use to manage "which v tree, dec or pc" ? a vortage ?

mircea_popescu: this part is fine.
asciilifeform: so i tell the fella with the vax, 'go and make this its own tree, give it to fellow vaxers to sign, not to me'.
trinque: possibly tangent, but imho there needs to be a distinction between the language of the gods (and the rules thereof) and handbook of suitable places to take a shit.
mircea_popescu: ok.
mircea_popescu: what'd the distinction be ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, suppose fellow wants ffa. how does he pick the one he needs ?

asciilifeform must go to a lengthy meat chore ; bbl
mircea_popescu: at the very rock bottom of this : the ~deal~ of portage is that it installs things for you without you necessarily understanding why. this is the pay-off, yes, "you don't have to be concerned with every little detail" or however it goes. and the cost for this is, that you don't get to understand how it installs things for you. because ultimately, you don't, whether you want to or not entirely immaterial, ungermane an' spur

trinque: this is a "forward-looking statement" eh? I don't disagree with it
trinque back in a few
mircea_popescu: i suppose the one true break here, is that portage system actually excepts to build and link by bits. "out of the codemass intended to be used, arbitrarily selected portion A is built and linked first, producing object files, then B is built and linked against those binaries"

mircea_popescu: whereas if we decide we dislike the "packages" abstraction (and not merely dislike it a little bit, but quite a lot, enough to justify a lot of rewriting) then the available solution's to just make one big v tree. coming with the obvious problem that if indeed the whole world's just one tree, then trying to play BOTH duke nukem AND warcraft 2 will result in two copies of the kernel compiled, like if we were idiots.

mircea_popescu: now, if you wish for your takeaway from this to be "hanbot is not cool enough to run cuntoo" that's your priviledge, but i tell you i don't see the wisdom. for the same money you could say you never read the damned scripts, and butress the claim on eg http://btcbase.org/log/2019-02-06#1893199 ☝︎

a111: Logged on 2019-06-22 18:09 trinque: and perhaps this is what's wanted, but the ubuntu-like installer that supports all hardware without anyone needing to learn to spin a linux kernel is a different kind of item
mircea_popescu: this isn't because "we're building housing for the sort of braindead morons who literally can not avoid walking into fire", but because "holy shit, spending life avoiding spurious pitfalls is such a sad way to go about things".
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-06-22#1919303 << this may work. my takeaway was that item could benefit from a little polish, a few choice one-liners added to documentation/comments, that sorta thing ☝︎

mircea_popescu to bed. but ima try to be on tomorro (tho prolly on the viaje nick) because it seems to me there's two different layers of unhapiness preventing cuntoo from making meaningful progress, neither of which properly gotten to the bottom of.
mircea_popescu: one somethong to do with trinque 's unhapiness with the cuntoo userbase ; the other something to do with wtf to do re v & portage/ebuilds.
