<damo22>Kernel page fault at address 0x0, eip = 0x0
<damo22>Kernel Page fault trap, eip 0x0, code 0, cr2 0
<damo22>hmm why is it trying to execute at 0

<damo22>so it tried to call a continuation that was actually the address of "regs"

<damo22>i think there is memory corruption with the static allocation in the gs area
<gnucode>hello hurd people!
<gnucode>I guess I am going to try to run i3 on the Hurd. We shall see how well it works.
<gnucode>I only have 1.5 GB of RAM on this machine.
<gnucode>well the Hurd failed to run X.
<gnucode>I think the mailing list talked about it being broken, and has not been fixed yet. I'm not complaining. Just reporting.
<gnucode>I am trying to startx as a regular user. It is possible that in the Hurd you have to start it as root, but I do not know for sure.
<youpi>as mentioned in readmes etc.,
<youpi>notably the dpkg-reconfigure x11-common xserver-xorg-legacy part
<gnucode>youpi you are probably getting really tired of telling people: please read the manual. Sorry...
<azert>Premise: I don’t want to set priorities to anyone, but I’ve seen that a few patches got lost on the mailing list and I was wondering if their authors just gave up. This one from damo22 :
<azert>And this and the next one of the serie by solid_black :
<gnucode>hello again friends!
<gnucode>hellos from the hurd on real hardware running X!
<gnucode>This is probably super insecure. I had to configure X such that anybody could start it...
<gnucode>for some reason telling X that only console users could start X did not work for me
<gnucode>and i3 works pretty well. It is noticeably slow, but seems to support my usecase pretty well.
<gnucode>great job Hurd team!
<gnucode>and I have to go help out a friend! I shall talk to ya'll later!
<gnucode>hello again friends!
<gnucode>this is super cool to run the hurd on X!
<nikolar>are you on debian hird
<gnucode>I am on debian hurd
<gnucode>running on a T43
<gnucode>oh yeah! it probably not super secure.
<gnucode>I had to configure X so that any user could startx
<nikolar>well as long as it works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
<nikolar>i assume it's not a production system of any kind
<gnucode>nikolar: nope. Though it would be cool to actually host a website with it!
<gnucode>nikolar: it's just something to play around with
<nikolar>Oh definitely
<nikolar>Just don't host anything sensitive
<gnucode>yeah, I'm definitely NOT storing my credit card infomation on this computer! :)
<gnucode>I am heading out to work again! See ya!
<azert>I think that at some point GNUMach/Hurd will require/support an iommu, for safety
<azert>I suspect that will be a major thing to develop
