<marusich>Also, what I said earlier about vfat being an extension of fat32 may not be true; reading a little more closely I guess maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, vfat is there for mounting, probably, if you want to try it.
<marusich>Given that I just created an MSDOS partition table with a single partition of random type "Golden Bow" (id 56) on a USB stick and then created an ext4 file system on that partition and am able to mount it...I don't think I was wrong.
<notadrop>"Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its areas of application include high energy, nuclear and accelerator physics, as well as studies in medical and space science." cool!
<ifur>monte carlo is a simulation method (comes from the casino actually, since you are "gambling") there is youtube videos of how to calculate pi using shot guns and monte carlo
<OriansJ>Also, I should get the preserve source feature of the assembler complete before the end of the weekend.
<nee`>I have installed ghc 7.10.2 in a foreign distro and it always fails to link any program with the message '/usr/bin/ld: cannot find crt1.o: No such file or directory'. Is there anything special I have to do apart from setting the PATH and GHC_PACKAGE_PATH variables?
<OriansJ>Early draft of the preserve source feature of the assembler is now up on github. The assembler still has some rough edges but now it spits out commented hex that preserves not only the assembly source but also any comments it might have had. Now we don't need to trust the assembler binary :D
<janneke>back, on 4.6.1 now!...but still no synclient/synaptics_drv.so loaded in xorg
<marusich>Some software, like wicd, might store secrets outside of your home partition, so you need to be aware of that, but for me having my home wifi password on the root partition unencrypted is not a big deal, since that password is unrelated to any of my important passwords, and if somebody has physical access to my hardware, they probably can do a lot worse than hack my wifi, anyway.
