Nevermind, turns out it's just a stats reporting error on 5.4 kernels :/
I just wanted some rice :(
It just sucks finding an interesting program and realizing it uses WebKit or Blink somewhere, because to build them you need to have Ruby installed on your system, which I have no use for at all.
And, since Gentoo doesn't have any pre-compiled binaries for those dependencies, I just can't do anything but not install the program.
The last thing it rendered was actually me testing it out on my current rig to make sure it still worked, a couple months to half a year ago.
(Probably still works unless static electricity or dust killed it)
I tried changing the directory I stored the temporary files in, thinking "maybe they have some special handling for /tmp"
NOPE. still doesn't want to work.
also, it's definitely totally random which pages it decides to kill, as it changed yet again.
I should move this over to my own CI, screw GH
Now it's up to two pages not working, and it seems like it doesn't write (or removes??) some temporary files required
This is mostly so I don't forget after reformatting, but if there's anyone here who has a Logitech M560 and wants their thumb buttons to work on browsers in Linux, this is the command you need:
xinput set-button-map "Logitech Wireless Mouse M560" 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 10 11 8 9
(The numbers are intentional)
update: IT BOOTS with F2FS
gonna try encrypting now, I don't really see any reason why it won't work, but that's what I said the last time too
"let's just add some system apps before testing it what can possibly ever go wrong"
update: IT BOOTS
i was just absolutely stupid and didn't read up on the Android makefile stuff, which didn't rename some files in a way I wanted.
The problem? This was an error on my own additions, and not on the base LOS system
update: FINALLY GOT A LOGCAT
now let's see what the actual issue is
last update of the day: backup successfully restored. it boots and unlocks, i assume most other functionality work as well, but it's temporary, still
i'll deal with 17.1 tomorrow
update: I decided to call it quits for today. Cleaned out the LOS output directory and am currently building from scratch.
while that's happening, i'm trying to restore a system image backup, which will hopefully get me a semi-useable phone for the time being
update: it rebooted into recovery??????
