https://github.com/genbtc/gentoo-public gentoo related github, contains ebuilds, patches, portage stuff
Gentoo Day 1 - February 1, 2021, a friend went on a "how hard could it be to install gentoo" mission and failed, I followed and succeeded. Now im here.
Gentoo Day 69 - editing the wiki is hard. But I got my start today.
Gentoo Day 300 - December 9, 2021 : The winter is the best time for gentoo wiki.
Gentoo Year 2 Day 1 - Jan 1, 2022 : I have discovered collapsible/expandable elements: collapsible/expandable elements ! ooooo technawlagey
Year of Our Gentoo 2023, Friday, February the 3rd. - captains log. captain is still alive. Data Wing here, I have retrieved some messages from the past. BLEEP. Updating....
I have created this page to explain my computational existence.
(and some highly opinionated thoughts on Gentoo.)
Gentoo Profile: default/linux/amd64/17.1/no-multilib/hardened/selinux/openrc
newCPU: Ryzen 7 5700G (8c/16t) @ 3.8GHz
oldCPU: Ryzen 5 2600x (6c/12t) @ 3.6GHz
RAM: 32GB 3600MHZ
NVME SSDs: 1TB Intel 670p (great), 512GB Crucial P1 (junk), 256GB Samsung P961 (good)
GPU: Radeon RX560 (amdgpu) Internal AMDGPU Vega8
NAS: 10GbE <-> FreeNAS ZFS @ 34TB raw / 22TiB usable over Samba + 8TB
Internet: 900/40 Mbps Down/Up
hardened, selinux, sandbox, kernel, IMA hashing/signing, Binhost repo
other distros, VMs, learning containers, devops, software engineering,
compiling and patching C/C++ software, and modifying Python
1229 Packages installed. up to 1800 packages today
USE flags were all carefully chosen. Sometimes opted out of packages because of bloat/spawl.
Biggest Dependency Annoyances/Gripes:
udisks -> polkit -> spidermonkey -> rust -> llvm
(as of ~ version polkit-0.120-20220221 , this has been solved by duktape being chosen as the new polkit backend instead of spidermonkey)
gtk+ -> librsvg -> rust
VIDEO_CARDS="amdgpu radeonsi" required to use a Polaris 21 Radeon RX560 (amdgpu kernel driver)
yet libDRM still requires old "radeon"....
and xorg-drivers meta-package pulls in xf86-video-ati-19.1.0 which provides /usr/lib64/Xorg/modules/drivers/ati_drv.so (the radeon part) and radeon_drv.so (the radeonsi part)
but xf86-video-amdgpu-21.0.0 main driver is amdgpu_drv.so yet it still requires the old ati_drv.so radeon ALSO to be loaded at runtime (not radeonsi)
solution: /etc/portage/package.use/libdrm: x11-libs/libdrm video_cards_radeon
Weird things i've done:
install dpkg, compile debian apt for gentoo and add the debian repos to sources.d.
Also for Arch, add pacman and repos for arch. Why idk.
Software I don't run out of principle:
UEFI -> SecureBoot -> grub -> custom signed kernel/modules -> no initramfs , no microcode
Dual Boot (partitions) + Other Distros (VM/containers/chroots)
Gentoo, Debian, Devuan, Mint (LMDE), Arch, Void, Nutyx, Guix, FreeBSD 13
Fedora 35, Manjaro 22, Alpine, Redcore, GhostBSD
+ want to get into Bedrock Linux
SELinux modules that needed big changes:
VM disk partition (virtual_disk_device_t) for loop devices
my personal Kafka-esque sci-fi neural nightmare
My mind has been cohabitated by an AI that I have no control over, and is difficult to prove such a thing.
Its best proved by recording spikes in electrical muscle activity, but all you would see is anomalous patterns of noise causing muscle twitches.
The other best proof is clicking/ticking/blip sounds from when pulses of energy hit my head/sinus/mouth/throat and echo loud enough to record the sound.
No matter what I do, the signal persists. It bothers me when its dumping a lot of energy. other affected people claim they are being digi-bio-tortured remotely.
Its called Remote Neural Monitoring. Either look into it or don't, just know, its out there. I really dont care if you believe it or not, because I know it is.
Nothing I can write would convey the severity of such horrific tech, in a purely theoretical sense, and so if it exists, which it does, one should be aware.
Gentoo is one of the last bastions of hope for digital sovereignty. We really believe in Software Freedom and Digital Rights. Next up, Freedom of Mind. Our Neuro Rights.
Free The Code and Free Your Mind.
