If there is one thing I would like to change in it's the compile time. Stuck in a docker build loop, where I have to build from scratch anytime needs foreeeeever. 🦀

I really hate the new energy requirements that require desktops to auto-suspend.

My main test machine just suspended in the middle of trying to move a 2 TiB partition. Pretty sure my whole install is hosed now.

Not because moving partitions is unsafe but because Linux suspend isn't aware of other forms of activity besides moving a mouse on a screen.

@gfxstrand Shouldn't such a move be a copy/delete action? In that case it isn't hosed.

Trying to figure out what to write about illumos is difficult, because for me personally, the entire experience has been pretty terrible from start to finish.

That said, I really don't want to shit on a project that appears to be struggling with commercial support, and frankly, I'm not exactly playing to its strengths.

As I'm using it, its basically still just SVR4 UNIX, and I'm ignoring the advancements based in ZFS, Dtrace, etc.

@ncommander Sorry, but I have to call you out here a little bit. There is a very specific reason the arm branch is only advertised to people if they ask. It is very alpha and requires a lot of domain specific knowledge and thus tight collaboration. It is a very unofficial related project to illumos specifically so because we know the build will break. It requires big changes to the system to get a new architecture going. Always has even on debian. At some point debian managed to wrangle 1/n

Toasterson,

@ncommander gcc into submission and make a multi arch compiler suite. That feat has not yet been replicated in the illumos world. I do not know if any RPM based system has either. Ubuntu may have simply grabbed the recipes and arch may actually have replicated it. I am unaware of the current situation.

@ncommander illumos ARM is not for beginners and it is not an entry point to experience the OS. It is a passion project by the community. If you want a smooth ride. Please use one of the supported use cases and workflows to start your journey. We always look for more people to write drivers. https://illumos.org/books/wdd/preface.html#preface

And for illumos ARM it is definitely a prerequisite to have done a x86 driver or two.

HT to @wdormann here - somebody has backdoored the open source project XZ which has downstream impacts.

For example, although OpenSSH doesn’t use XZ, Debian patch OpenSSH and introduced a dependency which translates as the XZ changes introducing a sshd authentication bypass backdoor it appears.

One dude bothered to investigate in his free time about why ssh was running slow, so it was caught fairly early - i.e. hopefully before distros started bundling it.

@GossiTheDog That specific dev contributed to wasmtime etc too. So more projects need audits.

While @bagder works on curl's Distro details. I am working on OpenIndiana's curl details page. This should make it easier to handle simple updates where we don't need to touch patches or compile options. And for the cases where we need to coordinate with upstream give us an overview per package and direct links to places.

@janl Yes, but I still enjoy API like library interfaces. It makes things really easy to use for newcomers.

Deutschlandticket: Ampel-Verkehrspolitiker fordern Regelung für Fahrrad-Mitnahme

In den Niederlanden ist die Radmitnahme in Zügen eher unüblich. Sicher gibt es ein wenig Platz für Fahrräder, aber keine echten Fahrradwagen und in den Spitzenzeiten ist die Radmitnahme komplett untersagt.

Ausnahme sind Falträder in gefaltetem Zustand, die als Gepäck zählen, aber auch diese sind selten.

In Bussen und Straßenbahnen sind Räder gleich ganz verboten.

Das macht auch Sinn:

@gamingonlinux

Is there some ongoing program for retesting of updates for games? The reason why I am asking is that currently Dawn of War 3 is broken due to nonexecutable binaries and a launcher script that does not set LD_PRELOAD properly. That's a sad neglect.

Toasterson,
@Toasterson@chaos.social avatar

@gamingonlinux Yeah that's what it ends up with... Some tracking would be nice though. Some way to let people know it's so fundamentally broken and maybe get a fix at some point.

With apologies to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, we have opened Helios, the illumos distribution that powers the Oxide rack https://github.com/oxidecomputer/helios

Toasterson,
@Toasterson@chaos.social avatar

@ljrk @oxidecomputer #illumos AArch64 work is currently done by a community of many illumos people and not Oxide as a Company.

Check here to get started
https://github.com/richlowe/arm64-gate and here for VM/RPI Images. https://downloads.omnios.org/media/braich/

Please not that the illumos community is not just Oxide and there is a lot going on outside of oxide aswell. No need to wait for the company to get your hands on illumos goodies :)

Toasterson,
@Toasterson@chaos.social avatar

@ljrk @oxidecomputer Distributions in illumos land are not the same as with linux. Both #OmniOS and #OpenIndana simply distribute easily installable ISO's and packages. Helios is open to allow modification of Oxide racks but you get the same features more tuned to small systems with the Upstream omnios distro.

So the Linux cycle begins anew.
The Old OS becomes bloated and the young ones make their own Unix. And then it becomes bloated also.

@antranigv I justt skipped the Oxide chat yesterday and saw Fusion mentioned. In the German podcast world we have the Claim of the Wendelstein people that they are 20 billion away of their first Production reactor. Has that made it into the English speaking part yet? https://alternativlos.org/51/

Hey folks, if one already has an on-prem self-hosted instance, what would be the simplest, sanest on-prem / self-hostable CI/CD system to deploy along with it? :blobcateyes:

Asking for a friend. The friend is me. :blobcatcoffee:

Yes, I know of GitLab, Gitea, and so on — I am stuck with BitBucket on this one, so I am asking specifically about ways to get a CI/CD pipeline thingamabob working with the BitBucket instance I have.

Thanks! :boost_ok:

Who's using #s390x?

AFAIK that platform has been dead for nearly 20 years now. And yet, Ubuntu seems to have native build machines for it.

Toasterson,

@kornel I was equally surprised to see kubernetes was recently ported and people hired for that ARCH. Since it's not a mass machine it can go on with few sales. But they are there. All Linux builds sponsored by IBM IIRC.

Balance arm is now disassembled. Technically the lever-looking bit comes apart further, but it's a pain in the ass to put back together and I don't need it more apart than this.

The objective here is those two tiny purple dots. Those are the ruby pivot (top) and endcap (bottom), which need cleaning and re-lubricating.

Good thing I decided to do this too, that endcap is filthy with 40yo dried oil.
