<davexunit>ArneBab: a long time ago you gave me some Gentoo instructions for guile-2ds file. The patch didn't apply correctly at the time so I set it aside and forgot about it. I finally remembered it today and integrated the changes.
<ArneBab>davexunit: Cool!
<ArneBab>I updated the bibtex for guile:
<ArneBab>are older versions of the manual also available from there?
<ArneBab>the "urldate" field looks pretty handy!
<ZombieChicken>Anyone here compiled 2.0.11 yet?
*davexunit raises hand
<ZombieChicken>Did it compile cleanly?
<davexunit>do you mean without error?
<davexunit>yes, I'm using it now.
<ZombieChicken>I'm trying to compile it and keep getting an ld error
<ZombieChicken>and just want to know if it is working somewhere
<ZombieChicken>./.libs/ undefined reference to `GC_unregister_my_thread'
<ZombieChicken>./.libs/ undefined reference to `GC_pthread_create'
<ZombieChicken>./.libs/ undefined reference to `GC_register_my_thread'
<ZombieChicken>./.libs/ undefined reference to `GC_pthread_detach'
<davexunit>so we have a threading problem.
<davexunit>I have not seen these error messages.
<ZombieChicken>not sure what the problem would be. Can you give me a list of the linked libs?
<davexunit>how exactly do I get a list of that?
<ZombieChicken>ldd /path/to/guile
<ZombieChicken>can you find out where linux-vdso comes from?
<ZombieChicken>davexunit: thanks for the data. That helped some
<davexunit>I don't know where to look for that.
<davexunit>I rgrep'd just to take a stab in the dark but came up with nothing
<ZombieChicken>boeh-gc needed a flag change
<ZombieChicken>I found the dep list in the README finally
<davexunit>oh you compiled libgc from source?
<ZombieChicken>I run funtoo
<ZombieChicken>so everything is compiled
<ZombieChicken>looks like it is working just fine
<davexunit>oh I see.
<ZombieChicken>looks like it is working this time around
<davexunit>i've heard of funtoo but haven't used it.
<ZombieChicken>Gotta love the 'SNARF' messaged during compile
<ZombieChicken>When working with guile, is there a SLIME implementation for emacs?
<ijp>geiser, not slime
<ZombieChicken>I thought that might be the case
<ZombieChicken>geiser come with emacs?
<ft>no, but elpa
<civodul>Hello Guilers!
<ArneBab>ZombieChicken: yes, it did compile
<ArneBab>ZombieChicken: I run Gentoo, and I just renamed the ebuild
<ArneBab>I use the lisp overlay
<ZombieChicken>yeah. I managed to get it to work
<ZombieChicken>had to clean up the lisp overlay ebuild some
<ZombieChicken>and moved it into my local overlay
<ZombieChicken>now I'm trying to figure out why emacs running evil and geiser spazzes out when I hit tab more than one
<ArneBab>could you send the cleaned up ebuild to the lisp-herds email list?
<ZombieChicken>I did little more than bump the build, delete the files dir, and drop the requirement of eselect-guile
<ZombieChicken>if I do anything with it, I'll probably push it into the funtoo tree
*davexunit just live-coded himself a crude 2048 clone.
<davexunit>for those not familiar with 2048, it's a simple html5 game that has been going around that everyone and their mother is writing their own version of.
<mark_weaver>ah, one of my best friends was kind of addicted to that one for a while :)
<davexunit>once you start playing it's next to impossible to put down.
<davexunit>it's a productivity destroyer, even more so than other casual games I've played.
<zacts>davexunit: at least it's better than candy crush
<zacts>I'm trying to get a friend off of their addiction to candy crush, this might be the game.
<davexunit>zacts: 2048 is better in many ways. it's free software and doesn't require an iphone.
<muep>I quite do not get why the game is so popular, except that some of the silly variations are fun
<zacts>davexunit: indeed
<zacts>davexunit: and it doesn't require facebook
<davexunit>wow, it's worse than I thought.
<mark_weaver>candy crush requires both an iphone _and_ facebook? wow
<zacts>mark_weaver: yeah, it's the most terrible non-free software program ever envisioned.
<zacts>not only does it spy on you, it forces you to use facebook if you want extra lives.
<mark_weaver>heh, well, surely there are more terrible programs, but indeed that sounds quite bad.
<davexunit>here's a screenshot of guile-2048
<civodul>davexunit: nice!
<civodul>i just learned about this game from my partner
<civodul>so now i can say: "look, Guile is this great"
<davexunit>civodul: :)
