<mark_weaver>nowadays, I think the more relevant limiter of initrd size is the amount of RAM in the machine.
<jxself>What?! Oracle won the 2013 America's Cup? How disappointing.
<jxself>And yes, RAM is the biggest thing. Back in the day I had a hard disk with a 30MB capacity. I remember getting a computer later on with more than that for RAM and being amazed and how it would have been able to hold my entire hard disk in RAM.
<youlysses>Also, I don't know if this is just me, but cmake doesn't seem to build properly when I install it. Test 59 fails while it's preforming some-factor of a check and it causes the whole package to not build.
<civodul>jxself: do you have superpower to fix that? :-)
<jxself>I don't. It lives in a VM I don't have access to.
<civodul>youlysses: CMake fails to build on x86_64 IIRC, Steap?
*civodul runs "guix package --upgrade" to enter the glibc 2.18 realm
<youlysses>Well that's a bummer, is there any sort of easy way around this? That's going to prevent me from building a fair amount of packages; Namely and more-or-less of the more important packages, wpa_supplicant. :^P
<youlysses>civodul: Ah, it looks like Gentoo just does/did their package really weird, that somehow makes cmake a circular dependency.... but by no means, does this seem to be a depend via Debian or Arch.
