<mark_weaver>The new MIPS N32 bootstrap is going well. I've built make-boot0, diffutils, findutils, binutils-cross-boot0, gcc-cross-boot0, perl, linux-libre-headers, glibc-intermediate, gcc-cross-boot0-wrapped, and bash-light. Now working on the final glibc.
<mark_weaver>I've built make-boot0, diffutils, findutils, binutils-cross-boot0, gcc-cross-boot0, perl, linux-libre-headers, glibc-intermediate, gcc-cross-boot0-wrapped, bash-light, and almost done building the real glibc (currently in the strip phase).
<gzg>viric: I doubt RMS renders Emacs via GTK in a framebuffer though. It'd be interesting to see if someone writes a compositor for Emacs in Wayland, if RMS would use graphical Emacs on a regular basis though, I think.
<mark_weaver>gzg: On my Wheezy box, I compiled and installed libgc-7.2d and guile-2.0.9 from source before installing Guix, but iirc it should work well enough with the guile-2.0.5 that comes with wheezy.
<mark_weaver>I guess I should admit that I don't really know whether YeeLoong has a hardware text mode. but I *do* know that I've never seen it used.
<civodul>viric: yeah, unfortunately these trendy distros are not concerned with user freedom
<viric>civodul: it's only about running all software available
<gzg>viric: It's P2P, encrypted, and GPLv3 -- that's three really big sellers for me. It's still in alpha, from what I can tell; But it looks like it's going to keep the steam to develop a solid protocol and client on-top of it.
<mark_weaver>viric: afaict, upstream binutils doesn't have --enable-fix-loongson2f-nop.. 'gas' supports -mfix-loongson2f-nop (and -jump, needed for the kernel), but they must be passed to 'gas' each time its run.
<mark_weaver>--enable-fix-loongson2f-nop sounds vaguely familiar as something I might have come up with for gNewSense a couple of years ago, but I don't remember clearly.
<Guest2985>Does anybody know an interesting and simple qt application? I would like to package something easy to exercise my qt libraries. Just because they compile and pass their tests does not mean they actually work...
<mark_weaver>I'm only part way through the bootstrap myself. I don't know for sure that all the problems are fixed....
<viric>civodul: did you already write the nix expression to install guix, in the guix repository?
<Guest2985>Instead of your last modification to bootstrap.scm, I think one could also just put the tarballs into the store using "guix download file:binutils-..." etc., and then add the hash in a new "(match system" clause. This should also make the first part of your patch obsolete.
