Today being my Birthday pretty much started my day. Somehow I managed to accept a call at 00:12 (while I was asleep) but I don’t even remember taking it. Somehow my real live is getting better and better (as in finding some friends as I pretty much was a hermit for the last couple of years).
Also I found someone to share my toughts with, someone who understands it, how to really get to me (read it as a very good friend :P)
Gentoo stuff is living on. vserver-sources/linux-vserver is approaching it’s next stable release (hopefully in this week), openvz-sources finally on something newer than 184.108.40.206 (ok, they’re there quite a while) and baselayout-vserver finally working on both openvz and linux-vserver.
And my little experiment also continues (the WRAP experiment). I’m currently trying to get a minimal Gentoo running on that (well sort of). I’m currently trying to get some replacement for/a way to strip down GCC (I really don’t need a compiler on the WRAP, and since the whole GCC takes 79M it’s pretty much a candidate for removal).
solar yesterday mentioned something like this:
INSTALL_MASK_EXEMPT="*.so.*" INSTALL_MASK="*" emerge gcc
Well that would be a pretty nifty feature (and I already tried my
luck and wisdom *cough*), but hopefully we’ll se something like that pretty soon 🙂
It’s almost a year since I joined Gentoo and I have to admit that it was a pretty good time so far (well except some random things, like me screwing some releases).
One thought to “Birthday”
There should be an ebuild called “libgcc” or something, that after emerging will leave only run-time needed .so and friends – but, properly linked, etc. Maybe addition to Portage FEATURES flags like let’s say “runtime” that will work as filter for anything that is not neccecery in run-time only system is more than welcome… 🙂
