pedja'They Live' was ahead of its time13:53
pedjacult classic13:54
pedjaI pushed ncpamixer to contrib last night. ncurses based pulseaudio mixer13:55
jaegersaw that, looks neat14:22
pedjatook me a while to figure out the shortcuts :)14:30
pedjait never occurred to me to take a look at the conf file14:31
pedjaman page is just converted from the git repo14:32
abenzpedja publishing ports now too?14:32
abenzseems all guys went through the ritual14:33
abenzmy crux experience is incomplete14:33
pedjaabenz, I have a bunch of ports in local repos, I try not o push random crap to contrib ;)14:33
pedjaI wonder how big would my nvidia-cuda package be if pkgmk used zstd instead of gz14:35
ryuoor even xz.14:59
ryuoACTION coughs.14:59
ryuoThough I suppose xz is best for distributing packages whereas zstd may be better for building.14:59
jaegerIT can use whatever bsdtar/libarchive supports15:02
pedjabut we build libarchive without it, so :)15:03
tilmani thought we switched to xz for pkgmk. or was that a test only?15:03
pedjait's settable in pkgmk.conf, afaik15:04
tilmangood choice ;d15:05
pedjain my (highly unscientific) tests, zstd was as fast or faster then xz in compressing and faster in decompressing on my machine15:05
tilmanpedja: do you know about this?
frinnstzstd should be a lot faster than xz15:31
pedjatilman, yes. I might even used it sometimes15:32
pedja <--about 6x :)15:33
pedjasame compression levels15:33
pedjaabout 20% file size diff, which is not bad at all, imho15:34
*** groovy2shoes has quit IRC16:31
pedja tilman, if there was some clue in your mention of drop caches I sorely missed it :)16:54
pedjadid you mean I should drop caches between benchmark runs, perhaps?16:55
tilmanpedja: yep, so that cached i/o doesn't skew your results16:57
tilmanpedja: if you put your files in a tmpfs and you're not swapping you should be good too i think17:00
*** groovy2shoes has joined #crux17:01
pedjatilman, thanks :) now I am curious what would be the results be with all that. :added to TODO:17:06
pedjazstd was 4 and 6x faster then xz on spinning rust/dual core.17:08
tilmanring ring17:08
tilmanit's the 90s. they want their disks back pedja ;>17:09
pedjaif you want to donate me a SSD you no longer use, I wouldn't say no :)17:11
tilmani have one, but it's from 2010 and i'm not sure it's good anymore17:13
pedjaj/k :)17:14
