Added support for building/running alternate architectures using Qemu/binfmt today.
Replacing a shell script with a C program Show more
It's kind of cute how constructing calls with the GVariant and GDBus APIs in C is kind of more convenient than figuring out how to correctly call D-Bus methods using any of dbus-send, gdbus, and busctl.
On the other hand, command line option handling using GOptionContext to have “program [options] <command> [command-options]” in C is clumsy and painful.
C can be a neat language but string manipulation and undefined behaviour kill the joy of programming.
I thought Emacs opening image files like an image viewer was a bit of overkill... but it's just PERFECT for quickly going down Cairo's test results.
It's probably because I can leave windows in place and replace the images shown in them, much like a window manager that actually doesn't get in your way.
Don't @ me about tiling window managers please 🙉
Okay, so one test gets the Fuck It treatment and I force-regen its reference file; another one gets the XFAIL treatment since I don't know why it gets color fringing, and don't really want to find out right now.
There's no way this Cairo test could ever have worked. It fails if checked out at the commit when it was introduced. The dependencies haven't changed the relevant code.
I'm regenerating the test image the hard-ass way and calling Fuck It.
I can't bisect a problem in Cairo's test suite because I can't find an old revision that passes the test.
It *could* have been due to changes in pixman, but that code in pixman hasn't changed in the amount of time since the oldest revision in Cairo that I'm looking at.
Of course with plain pkg-config dependencies, there's no way to tie a git revision to the actual version of the dependency that it was tested with.
I.e. if there was Cargo.lock for C, this would be a lot easier.
Making more progress. You can push your app as a Flatpak to a device such as this tablet. Still needs more automation, but getting closer to something useful.
you know that saying that goes like
"be there or be square"?
i just realized why it's like that
it's cuz if you're not there, you're not around.
you're not a ROUND
A SQUARE IS NOT ROUND

Camilo Aguilar on the rsync algorithm
These days, mobile phones are packed with multi core CPUs and even GPUs. Despite these advances in hardware, internet connections in most parts of the world are still surprisingly slow and unreliable. This creates a challenge: how can files be efficiently transferred between computers over a low-bandwidth, high latency network connection?
