<epronk>I also tried the installation image. It recommends a 5Gb image file for qemu. Then the first system it uses as an example is desktop.scm. After 4 hours download packages it ran out of diskspace.
<epronk>lfam: I'll have a close look at that chapter. Thanks.
<lfam>Which section recommends 5 GB? That's not great advice
<lfam>You can pass a very large value to --image-size but by default QEMU will only use the space it needs
<reepca>OriansJ: I think it might be more useful if EXECUTE took a pointer to a pointer to the assembly instead of a pointer to the assembly. That way R12 can be set prior to jumping, which will let colon definitions be EXECUTEd as well as primitives. It also provides some nice consistency since the same pointers can be compiled into a definition or executed directly.
