The Install Gentoo wiki is more or less dead. I have become the primary contributor to it. (I am https://wiki.installgentoo.com/wiki/User:Se7en1) As the new primary contributor, I contacted bannanafish in an attempt to get admin status but he has not responded.

Anyway, we have an official wiki and none of you are taking part in it. I implore you all to begin editing it again to ensure accurate information.

https://wiki.installgentoo.com/wiki/Main_Page

 No.1048670

I contributed a fair bit in the past but gave up when I realized nobody cares, including the maintainers. Also last I checked, it was a 4chan /g/ wiki and /tech/ was only tolerated.


 No.1048672

>>1048670

When you think about it, if everyone gave up we can make it a /tech/ wiki. I exclusively use /tech/ and like I said I am the only person actively contributing besides one or two edits by lurker accounts.


 No.1048673

>>1048672

Same for me, but I don't like the idea of squatting someone else's property, even if benevolent. It's a ticking time bomb. The admin could come back anytime, decide he's not benevolent anymore, and fuck your shit up.

Instead we should make our own wiki, mediawiki is not hard to host. Would be nice if we could make it a Tor wiki.


 No.1048674

This is our own wiki. It's even in the /tech/ sticky, dude. Sure, it previously was made for /g/, and it had less /tech/-related content in years past, but this is OUR wiki already, dude

 No.1048679

>>1048678

What? Bananafish was a cool dude, and the Install Gentoo Wiki was not the only service run by Install Gentoo. He has full accountability, his last edit was replying to a talk in December 2018. He's just gone quiet on the wiki.

Thanks, that explains it. I recommend you read up on it, it's really not hard at all.

>>1048684

It would be trivial if you don't care about history. Even with history it would be easy. Would be nice to switch to a Markdown wiki with IP hashes instead of usernames while you're at it.

I did not start this thread to say we need a new wiki. I completely disagree with that notion. I think we need to begin actively editing it again.


 No.1048693

I understand why you started the thread. You need to understand why people stopped editing in the first place. A wiki is a good idea, but not this one (though its content should be reused).


 No.1048695

>>1048693

People stopped editing because of an active spam problem caused the admin to resort to closing all accounts. The issue has since been resolved


 No.1048696

>>1048693

>You need to understand why people stopped editing in the first place.

No one, or very few people, go to the install gentoo wiki, plan on editing, then decide not to because they would need to use a pseudonym. Still very few people will be turned off by having to learn a new formatting language while being handheld, or use a visual editor. If people aren't contributing, it's because they don't see it as a valuable resource, or because they don't think they have anything to contribute.


 No.1048697

>>1048696

>>1048695

Alright, let me put it like this: I used to contribute, and stopped because of the need for a pseudonym and lack of explicit assurance from admins. If someone from /tech/ created a wiki, copied content from installgentoo, actively administered it and ideally solved the pseudonym problem, I would contribute again.

Sounds like you think you understand users of that wiki better than me, so I'll let you heed or disregard that as you will. Maybe some lurkers will chime in to agree/disagree.


 No.1048703

I read the installgentoo wiki from time to time. I think it's qt. I don't think """we""", whoever that is, need a new wiki. That's silly! The admin(s) of installgentoo have _proven_ themselves faithful to host it and respect the hard work of faithful /tech/nicians and /g/entlemen alike. I think the fact it's /g/'s wiki with /tech/ tacked on is because a few years ago the /tech/ of today was /g/, and the /g/ of today was like some disptopian nightmere. I, for one, look forward to contributing new content and breathing some life into this wiki.

I especially always loved the moves section. I think I've watched them all (couldn't make it thru videodrone) and have some ideas of what to contribute in that area.

What if you take submitions to the wiki through posts here in /tech/ and maybe /g/? You could have anonymous submitions and some users/mods who take them and add them to the wiki, thus filtering spam and intentional missinformation.

How to recover a single text file you accidentally rm'd


If you have accidentally deleted or otherwise damaged your valuable and irreplaceable data and have no previous experience with data recovery, turn off your computer immediately (Just press and hold the off button or pull the plug; do not use the system shutdown function) and seek professional help. It is quite possible and even probable that, if you follow any of the steps described below without fully understanding them, you will worsen your situation.

How to improve programming productivity


Programming is highly demanding on the brain therefore you must ensure optimal blood flow and brain activity. One simple exercise can be very helpful for this. Perform these steps at the beginning of your programming session, and take breaks to repeat as needed: First, stretch by standing upright and bending down at the waist. Aim to touch your toes or grip the backs of your knees. Next, sit down and bend again slowly. As you adjust to the bent down position begin to slowly lean forward more and more. You will need to stimulate the high circulation organ - after you have become an experienced programmer the organ will become conditioned to become stimulated on its own as you begin this exercise, but if you are new you may need to warm it up a little with your fingers or tongue. Once the organ is fully stimulated, proceed to insert into your mouth and suck vigorously. You should imagine yourself slurping on a very thick milkshake through a straw. Continue until you feel the spike in brain activity, which also tends to trigger a salty taste sensation in the mouth. Happy programming!

No, you should not "install gentoo." You should install a real operating system like Mezzano or save up until you can afford a Symbolics machine. Go outside, cut some wood, go on the usenet (if you weenies can even figure that out) and talk with some real programmers.

with gentoo you compile your whole (or most) of your system utilities and programs to match what you want. Do you want to compile with language localization, with certain cpu flags, compile programs with certain attributes (include qt5 but not gtk)? then you use gentoo.

Of course compiling everything is not fun (especially if you have low spec) so some guy made CloverOS and shills it on half and infinity chan.

I was hard-core into gentoo when I first started getting into linux and programming and it probably set me back two years with all its bullshit.

Now that I'm a bit older I seriously believe its the most brain-dead operating system ever invented.

Its essentially a distro based on GNU autotools, which is similiaraly effected by this mind virus.

The intention of its developers is to add as much unecessary complexity with no rationale other than to be meta as possible and account for ever possible permutation of a broken modern unix system.

gentoo makes me realize how much I hate GNU/linux compared to BSD or even plan 9.

Have you ever realized how many fucking regex engines are there? like, anything more complex than basic regex should be handled by the super-language (perl, python, c, sed, etc.) but instead every language and editor uses their own braindead engine while ignoring the libc version.

Oh, but I can set my preference for widget toolkits for the three programms that support QT, GTK2, and GTK3.

And what if I want to manually specify options to ./configure that aren't available through USE FLAGS?

I only want to customize a handful of applications, not every single package in the linux ecosystem.

gentoo basically makes you into a distro developer/maintainer without actually realizing it or having to make well informed decisions.

its a mircale that any gentoo system works and thinking about modifying one gives me nightmares (like, installing an alternative GCC/glibc).

slackware devs were honest enough to realize linux is boiling shit but tolerable if you don't stir the pot.

plan 9 I can compile the entire system in about 10 minutes, it takes me 20 minutes just to go through menuconfig for linux (ps. I never get it right the first time).

I'm not against source packaging, BSD does it much better even if it still uses autotools.

I felt like giving it a try again last night, installed it in about two hours then I realized how much it felt like I was working for the computer so I deleted it.

I didn't feel like I was learning anything about operating system, unix, linux, or system administration, but rather to deal with the pedantic overbearing configuration requirements.

Most people who install gentoo the first time will copy the wiki verbatim, why not include half that shit in the stage-3 and just make installation a matter of extracting the tarball, run a script, copy the installer's kernel, then install boot loader.

I realize I haven't made a coherent argument against gentoo, but rather a collection of gripes, but thats what gentoo is -- a collection of horseshit that only masochistic and naive people put themselves through and endlessly try to find justifications for.

The microseconds you gain from making binaries slightly smaller is way offset by the hours you waste trying to find ways to trim the "fat".

I have the cure for this. Install LFS once, all the way to getting X working.

I guarantee you will never be tempted again.

Some people lay around watching television or spend all their evenings at parties talking to people about nothing. As far as hobbies go, system improvement isn't the worst one to have. Once you realize that every shortcut you take still leaves you miles ahead of the major distros, you can get a system up and running very quickly.

>Some people lay around watching television

Yes but they don't recommend you to solve every problem by watching more TV and they don't berate you for not watching more TV. If you're going to claim gentoo is your hobby, then be prepared to accept that it's basically a waste of time and you are mainly doing it for your own subjective enjoyment.

>>1051101

Fair complaints but so what? Windows and OS X are botnet. Every other OS doesn't have basic software. Linux is the best option, shit as it is.

>Most people who install gentoo the first time will copy the wiki verbatim, why not include half that shit in the stage-3 and just make installation a matter of extracting the tarball, run a script, copy the installer's kernel, then install boot loader.

It's trying to teach you how to do it so that maybe next time you won't copy/paste and will be able to do things the wiki or installscript couldn't have covered.

Do we have a wiki yet? I want to write an article about clean code.


The ideal number of arguments for a function is zero.

>>1051368

>The ideal number of arguments for a function is zero.

that is not a function.

unless you're implied implied arguments on a global structure, which is not clean code.


 No.1051372

>>1051369

durr what are class variables not counting as arguments because of syntax?


 No.1051380

>>1051368

>The ideal number of arguments for a function is zero.

That's a procedure retard. A function is a relation between an input and an output in which each input has a unique output. If there is no input, it's not a function.

>>1051354

You can use gentoo as a non-hobby. Just like you can use television to get the news, or go to social events to try and find a better job. When used for tinkering, then of course gentoo wastes your time, that was the goal. When used in a get-shit-done way, it is unironically the most productive OS.


 No.1051406

>>1051389

But your greentext said the opposite. According to that guy, it is not productive because you spend hours to save microseconds.

>>1051380

"Procedure" is just ad hoc terminology. If you want to be really anal about it, all argument-free functions f()=U are (mathematically) in fact functions of one argument f(x)=ax+U where a=0. Same logic can be applied to programming functions as well.

>>1051368

How will you pass them input, then? Are you just shilling class methods like >>1051372 claims?


 No.1051456

>>1051406

>is just ad hoc terminology

No, procedure or subroutine is the correct terminology.

>in fact functions of one argument f(x)=ax+U where a=0

Now you want to define addition with numbers for every data type in your language? What a mess. What's next? Are you going to start saying that variables are now functions too?


 No.1051482

>oy vey that's not clean code

See this is why we need a wiki. In order to educate these people out of their coder echo chambers. Read a book you plebs.

 One input argument is the next best thing to no arguments. 
SetupTeardownIncluder.render(pageData) is pretty easy to understand.

>>1051456

>Now you want to define addition with numbers for every data type in your language?

Are you perhaps retarded? I was just pointing that mathematically, "procedures" are just a special case of functions. Because you said

>If there is no input, it's not a function.

which is wrong.

>Are you going to start saying that variables are now functions too?

This is what variables are in functional languages. There's no actual difference.

Is Portage as easy to use as APT or YUM?

>>1050714

I'm not joking. I've been an Ubuntu / Debian user since I started. I've only occasionally used OpenSUSE, Fedora, etc.

Fuck it I'm going to try out Gentoo. Can't fucking hurt.


 No.1052864

>>1051101

Gentoo is indeed the meta distribution, of course it's going to be more complex. If you're okay with others choosing what init or libc you must use (this includes the BSDs), fine, but don't go all "muh oldfag cred" over us. The advantages I listed are real, but the two real reasons are: I can escape the freedesktop braincancer "easily" and it's simply less worse than other GNU/Linux distros.

>BSDs

Every BSD has major turnoffs:

>Free

SJWland and has no clear vision except "we want to be like GNU/Linux!" with the same bloat.

>Open

Python tier about ignoring performance issues and its port tree makes Debian stable look bleeding edge. Other issues like GPL kiddie hatred and lack of FS at least as good as XFS.

>Net

Nice but lacks a modern FS.

>Dragonfly

Currently very WIP (aarch64, hammer2, ravenports, etc...) and lacks µarch support, but very promising.

Honestly, I'm looking at the last two more and more, but it's hard to justify leaving Linux and its generally higher performance level. Especially since only Dfly's synth and soon ravenports look like a worthy Portage replacement.

>Plan 9

Come on, mate. Like everyone here, I think it should have replaced UNIX, as it was supposed to, but it's dead and buried now. Don't cling to some tranny loving shitposter club for you OS needs.
