z3bra
yup
retard
oh man blind installs are fun
is void linux cool?
i kind of want a rolling release distribution
z3bra
I found the build recipes retarded
you might like it
their "bootstrapable" build environment is really odd to use
stateless
z3bra, there is another way
if you have a good link somewhere (1g+ up) then you can dd from /dev/zero into a file, then install your system to it, then gzip it and pipe it through ssh and dd to /dev/sda on the server
z3bra
mmmh
that's a good idea
I've never done this before
stateless
how big is your disk on the sc?
z3bra
500G
stateless
ok
z3bra
my VM install failed :(
can mount root, eh
stateless
z3bra, it should take about 1 and half hours to push at 110MB/s
easily done if you are on the same network as online.net (from my server)
z3bra
and I can just use any file as a disk?
like dd a zeroed file
stateless
yes install it there
z3bra
and then fdisk myfile
stateless
mount it etc.
z3bra
sure
stateless
install ur system
then boot it in qemu
z3bra
cool, didn't know that
stateless
you might have to associate a loopback device with it
z3bra
I'll try it home, thanks for the hint
stateless
or whatever crap linux needs
z3bra
mmh, yeah
stateless
you can do a normal installation with qemu
set -hda to /dev/loop0 or whatever
make sure you get the image size right
or if in doubt leave 1-2GB off for swap
z3bra
fu*k swap
stateless
it is nice to dd to zero because gzip will compress well afterwards
z3bra
true
stateless
even ssh compress will work well without gzipping
but better to gzip
z3bra
initramfs upon local alpine install
the same might happenat online
stateless
I've always hated that
z3bra
# ls /dev/sd*
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2
# mkdir /newroot && mount /dev/sda2 /newroot
failed: no such file or directory
I hate initramfs..
stateless
haha
z3bra
going for lunch
see you in a minute
stateless
ok ;)
FRIGN, can you also have a look at some point at quinq's patches for ls?
FRIGN
stateless: sure, I already looked at them
but they are heavy
it'll take a while
have you taken a look at them?
stateless
FRIGN, yes but I think it is post 0.1 material
some tools will have bugs in 0.1
FRIGN
:OOO
:P
stateless
I will have another look at the patches since it has been a while
if there's anything we can extract from the patches for the current bugs, we can do that
FRIGN
kk
stateless
andrewch suckless sbase and ubase just owns busybox so hard
andrewch I feel compelled to replace buildroot with it
andrewch I don't think my work will allow it :P
FRIGN, ^ :)

FRIGN

FRIGN
