Det er slemt å tvinge emotakter på folk.
Fra et debattinnlegg på GS’ fora, september 2013.
There are enemies out there and they’ve made us so paranoid that we’re willing to risk making enemies of our allies.
If you’re curious to find out how all your installed ports depend upon each other, you might want to run this neat, little script saving its output to a file, and install
graphics/graphviz. Continue reading Using GraphViz to visualize the runtime dependencies of the installed ports
Make sure to request additional wrapping, if possible, when ordering books from Amazon. If not, your books might attack each other in transit. The result can sometimes be devastating.
Amazon US failed miserably when shipping four books last month, while their UK counterparts, around the same time, managed to wrap each of the two books I ordered, without me asking for it to happen.
BTW, I welcome Amazon’s initiative to establish local offices throughout the Nordic countries.
Update 2014-08-07: r363978, dated Mon Aug 4 09:11:25 2014 UTC, solves the parallel build bug once and for all, and there’s no need for the
Makefile.local as shown below.
I’ve been scratching my head over why
mail/thunderbirddoesn’t build in parallel when
MAKE_JOBS_SAFE was removed last August, in r324744. I can’t find a specific reason other than guessing parallel build was considered broken in FreeBSD.
So far, I’ve added a
Makefile.local file in the
/usr/ports/mail/thunderbird directory. The time spent compiling
mail/thunderbird went from roughly 2.5 hours to merely 38 minutes on a 4 core Intel Core i7-960 running at 3.2 GHz. YMMV. Continue reading Parallel build of
mail/thunderbird in FreeBSD?
