Pinned toot

@dotpk @solene @jrx It is very sad that an electronic device like this, which demands huge environmental and social burdens to create, can only last for such a relatively short period of time even if the vendor tries very hard to work around this issue.

Porting Alpine Linux to RISC-V

"I’m working on making this hardware available to builds.sr.ht users in the next few months, where I intend to use it to automate the remainder of the Alpine Linux port and make it available to any other operating systems (including non-Linux) and userspace software which are interested in working on a RISC-V port. [...] this will be the first time hardware-backed RISC-V cycles are being made available to the public."

"Artemis, [...] finds the best implementation class (e.g. ArrayList, LinkedList...) for your specific use case." [...] "Artemis finds the places in your code where you are using an ADT, and explores the possible concrete instantiation space for those ADTs using your test suite as a guide to performance. Then it outputs the transformed source"
