I had this weird thing happening to me. My macbook was starting to crash in a most sensational way. Like it would hang, and then there would be no readable filesystem on reboot.
So I installed GNU/Linux on my macbook, used the memmap option on the kernel, and things work great
I'm still not completely satisfied, there is so much tuning needed on a laptop for linux
i imagine so, but it's been awhile since i considered running linux on mac hardware
2-3 years ago when i last investigated seriously i was pleasantly surprised by how much documentation they had around doing it
yeah, but the problem is that you never know what release the doc you found and read is applying to
i have been doing a lot of docker things and i think ubuntu is the distro to be on... most comprehensive stackoverflow answers anyway, afaict
the signing fails, but since only a NullPointerException is thrown, I don't know where to look
@danielsz: Arch Linux is a great distro if you are happy to get ‘under the covers’ a bit more
the recommended setup is to delete the master key pair after having generated a signing subkey
Yes, exactly, you need the id of the signing key. But I have an idea for redesigning the whole thing.
The way I envision it, you don't need the keyring unless you are not using the default
OK, so we need an environment variable that will enable users to point to an alternate secring, for everybody else, we go for the default
I'm just saying that you didn't need in the signatures of sign-jar, or in the gpg.edn
we can simplify everything by removing the options in the API signatures, and create two ENV variables
it doesn' matter really, the boot-environ taks has been accepted in the mother project, environ, but I still keep a separate repo.
In my repo there is an additonal option that James didn't want, but the base implementation is the same
Regarding the PGP thing, out of the top of your head, what tasks besides the push task call sign-jar?
Will you be interested in a pull request? I think I know how to redesign the whole thing. But I wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes, and I also would need a little bit of guidance, probably.
i think as long as we maintain semantic versioning as much as possible we can make major releases without causing much strife
boot-environ reads from the environment or from properties files and puts everything in a map on the application-level. This introduces an abstraction layer and the advantages/disadvantages associated with it.
also the env file is nice because there are some situations where you can't set env vars at all
my x250 has a not entirely huge trackpad, but i still need to disable it or i touch it while i'm typing
it's not you, I mean nobody complains on Mac OS X. It makes you appreciate their efforts in refining the human machine interface
haha, yeah I hadn't seen that aspect of it, now you're mentioning I won't be able to forget it
also if you want to add gpg encrypt/decrypt support to boot.pgp that would be awesome too 😉
it would be interesting to be able to have encrypted resources in jars that boot would decrypt for you, perhaps
@danielsz, re: trackpad I remember good reports about this solution: http://askubuntu.com/questions/503843/tweak-macbook-pro-touchpad-on-ubuntu
np. Ironically I came to the Mac from Linux because I couldn’t stop myself messing around with this stuff and wanted something that just works 😉
there is also Arch’s excellent documentation (even if you use Ubuntu etc.): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook
Yeah, it is ironical. I would switch back in a heartbeat as well. I'll try to make the most of this turn of events. Maybe I should give StumpMW a try. I've always fancied the idea of having a Lisp runtime managing windows, with all the REPL goodness that comes with it. We'll see how that works out.
have you tried tiling window managers (xmonad, i3 etc.?) If you can get used to them they rock.
i3 took about 30 minutes to set up and a day or so to get used to, i'm syncing my configs across linux boxes now.
I started with XMonad, spent a bunch of time getting it working for floating windows (skype etc.), never quite managed it, installed i3 and 10 minutes later I was flying.
I even tried to live with the emacs www browser , terminal PDF reader etc. It wasn’t great
you can go crazy with this stuff, particularly if you then throw in screen or tmux - talk about yak shaving. I do still see the occasional Youtube video of some school kid who has optimised the heck out of their environment and feel a bit jealous. But then I embrace the mouse and get on with real work. Too old for this stuff now
the other thing I did find though was that moving to the macbook pro with the touchpad was far more efficient than a traditional mouse. I would be lost without my three finger swiping between spaces etc.
(I think we have hijacked this discussion in boot - let’s continue in #C03RZGPG1/#off-topic)
Do you have it as an alternate windows manager? Do you run it exclusively or next to a mainstream one, like Gnome or Unity?
Note still quite sure if I even want the p model, it might be 600g heavier than t450s. But quad-core would be nice.
