Yeah, I’m now trying out Tumblr client for Android.
Yup. Just got bitten by this nasty inconvenience.
I upgraded my firewall to sys-kernel/hardened-sources-2.6.39-r13, and after rebooting … all hell broke loose.
My (yet to be released) WallMator (firewall automator) script failed, and thus I lost all connectivity to the outside world. Can’t even ping the next hop gateway!
Finally! After 2 whole days lost, I managed to emerge gcc-4.5.1-r1!
Apparently, emerge-ing gcc needs a quite-hefty hardware requirement:
I was so happy yesterday that I’ve successfully figured out what was needed to upgrade gcc on my Gentoo system.
Boy, was I in for an unpleasant surprise.
Gentoo graybeards (you know who you are) are undoubtedly familiar with the
mirrorselect utility. This simple program (script, actually) attempts to determine which Gentoo mirror is the fastest for you. By specifying a
-D option, it will even try to download a 100 KB file to measure the throughput.
The problem is: It’s not 100% reliable.
Virtuoso guitar performance !!! Brava !!! Brava !!!

I <3 this song :-)
And the visualizations are very beautiful.
Short dispatch, this:
Yesterday I tried to upgrade
gcc on a fresh Gentoo installation. In fact, it was a raw installation, not yet fresh (e.g., extract stage3, extract portage, sync, update portage, upgrade gcc).
I had used a 4 GB virtual hard disk. Guess what? I ran out of space in the midst of
emerge -avuN gcc) >.<
Oh well. Now I’m trying to upgrade gcc using a 5 GB virtual hard disk. If this fails again, I’ll use a 6 GB vhd, and so on.
(Yeah, trying to find out how much space I actually need to upgrade gcc).
I’ll update you with the results.
In the meantime, keep strong!
Update: It works! Apparently, if you want to upgrade
gcc, you need to use a 5 GB vHD (free space approximately 4.6 GB).
