Adjustments to the build advice in the readme to track the changes made to "bosi build". Leaf check-in: 218401a205 user: tangent tags: trunk
Added missing ;; in one of the case statements in bosi check-in: 247961207f user: tangent tags: trunk
Small tweaks to the release process doc. check-in: d28caab153 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged yet more changes for v20210214 in Leaf check-in: 73038fadf8 user: tangent tags: release, v20210214
Reworked the logic in the new "bosi build nls" code so it copies any missing images from UV, rather than blindly copy all of them only when the first one is missing. This lets you re-run the script later, relying on it to fill in the gaps before starting on the expensive parts of the build. check-in: 5ec88693ac user: tangent tags: trunk
Fixed a misplaced curly brace in previous check-in: 59e778933e user: tangent tags: trunk
Added the "nls" parameter to "bosi build" so the single-core build can share the images synced as unversioned content up to the public server rather than need to rebuild them. This also clones the images down as part of the repo for the first time, so the user has a more complete clone of the repo. check-in: 3d933f656d user: tangent tags: trunk
Moved the Python 3 library stuff back up in bosi from "build" to "init" step again after the "sudo make install" step failed, since that may need to run one of the class simh or class os8script Python programs that depend on one of these as root. Using platform binary packages rather than pip3 user packages. check-in: 3a02a9163b user: tangent tags: trunk
Moved the pip3 install command down from "bosi init" into "bosi build" so it's run as the pidp8i user, not as root. It does us no good to have the Python libraries installed for use by root! check-in: e4a27760c4 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged still more trunk tweaks in check-in: 280c662a13 user: tangent tags: release, v20210214
Moved the 8GB image size requirement up after reflecting on the prior change. check-in: 9cac6262d6 user: tangent tags: trunk
The "bosi shrink" process roached the SD card, and I can't be bothered to figure out why. It's a minor optimization, not worth spending the time on, given that you have to go out of your way to find something smaller than 8GB and end up paying about as much for it when you do find one. I'm therefore betting that almost no one is actually trying to use a 4GB card, the only thing smaller that could possibly work, since even with the shrink, the finished image wouldn't fit on a 2GB card. check-in: d79a842547 user: tangent tags: trunk
Swapped commands in "sudo time" constructs in bosi so we use the calling shell's builtin version instead of /usr/bin/time, since at least on macOS, the builtin's output is clearer. Tweaked the prior commands to ensure that we don't count the time taken while sudo is blocking waiting for a psssword input against the time taken by the elevated command. check-in: 1ef732c32c user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged more trunk tweaks in check-in: 50be8bd991 user: tangent tags: release, v20210214
Comment tweak check-in: 4a67ec5806 user: tangent tags: trunk
Documented need for prior commit's change in the release process doc. check-in: fba31778b0 user: tangent tags: trunk
Updated "stretch" to "buster" in tools/bosi check-in: f0461538d2 user: tangent tags: trunk
Had to reorder and update some of the steps in "bosi prepare" to make it work on the current Rasperry Pi OS version. check-in: aeac6fa347 user: tangent tags: trunk
More tweaks to the BOSI process. check-in: 356fc7e331 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged trunk tweaks in check-in: d6d2943cec user: tangent tags: release, v20210214
Upped minimum SD card requirement from 2GB to 8GB after "bosi init" failed with an out-of-space message on the "apt upgrade" step, even after removing the biggest disk hogs we can most do without. The Foundation recommends 8GB, so we now do, too. check-in: 0136f1193f user: tangent tags: trunk
URL fix check-in: be28caef24 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged trunk changes for v20210214 into release branch check-in: 1fa1be1425 user: tangent tags: release, v20210214
Released v20210214 check-in: fad938bcb7 user: tangent tags: trunk
Reworked the way the Python missing module detection stuff works so it generates the proper module names on Debian Buster. Dropped recommendation of easy_install (semi-obsolete) and rewrote the advice it emits to be a bit clearer. check-in: 76133aacd0 user: tangent tags: trunk
"file link" doesn't exist in Jim Tcl, so the new symlink recreation stuff doesn't work when configured without "real" tclsh available. check-in: 1eb3e88ec3 user: tangent tags: trunk
tools/autosetup-update now removes the contents of autosetup/* before doing its work so we track upstream deletions properly. This results in a lot of files being deleted, but it looks like it's a result of files being merged, rather than removal of functionality. The configure script appears to run still... check-in: 2dbb85383b user: tangent tags: trunk
Year fix in ChangeLog: it's 2021 now, really! check-in: 77a8cc35a2 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged SIMH updates down to trunk. check-in: 5dedd3ca5d user: tangent tags: trunk
Cherrypicked the last two changes on the bogus file-renaming branch down to trunk. check-in: 25d04173ec user: tangent tags: trunk
Redo of [e0af34dd55] atop fixed parent. check-in: a38bb07eca user: tangent tags: trunk
Retry commit [ccb4c54bb2], without the inadvertent reversion of the Advent filename case folding fixes. check-in: d02c0ede5a user: tangent tags: trunk
Removed the last remaining symlinks, being those for CC8's init.h and libc.h files, which CC8 always looks for in the CWD, yet which need to exist in 3 different places. Creating symlinks for the other two at configure time so we no longer need those making checkouts to "fossil set allow-symlnks 1" to avoid screwiness. Closed-Leaf check-in: 3fcbc85340 user: tangent tags: file-renaming
Added tools/ to INFILES in so clean builds and such work properly. (Probably harmless, but no point letting that list drift from the corresponding on in auto.def.) check-in: 8197e6123d user: tangent tags: file-renaming
Renamed the old .agignore files to .ignore. (This is why we couldn't commit them to the repo at the same time as previous: does Fossil remove before rename, or vice versa?) check-in: e0af34dd55 user: tangent tags: file-renaming
Removed the .ignore symlnks. (Purposefully separate from next step, so there isn't a naming conflict.) check-in: ccb4c54bb2 user: tangent tags: file-renaming
Merged trunk in Leaf check-in: d022dae222 user: tangent tags: simh-update
Re-lowercased src/advent/* (excepting check-in: 5bab882cd4 user: tangent tags: simh-update
Updated the Fossil instructions in the contribution guide to track recent upstream changes. check-in: a15213d710 user: tangent tags: trunk
Merged trunk changes in check-in: 0748329823 user: tangent tags: simh-update
Several cleanups to the "make clean" target: removing bin/*.rk05 generically rather than a long list of explicit names, so we always remove everything we built; removed several redundant TU56 entries since we were already removing bin/*.tu56 for the same reason; and removed a few generated files from the repo so they don't show up as MISSING after a "make clean". If these latter aren't being regenerated properly after being removed, that's a reconfig issue, not a reason to check the last generated version in. check-in: 44ace29ebe user: tangent tags: trunk
Lowercased all the file names in pspec/advent.pspec to match their new case in the repo. Without this, the build only succeeds on systems with case-insensitive filesystems like macOS, and then only with the default FS options. check-in: c425495e2c user: tangent tags: trunk
The simh-update tool could put diffs for non-managed files into the patch, which would complicate patch application. This is especially problematic in bisecting, since it increases the "footprint" of the patch needlessly, increasing the risk of bad merges on switching versions in place. check-in: 7e2e92698e user: tangent tags: simh-update
Merged trunk changes in so I can run simh-bisect on the branch. check-in: 98b3c85a50 user: tangent tags: simh-update
New tool: simh-bisect, a companion to simh-update for bisecting upstream SIMH changes against our local PiDP-8/I patches. check-in: 0a19e8889c user: tangent tags: trunk
Updated Autosetup to 0.7.0+ check-in: 5d15b9ec74 user: tangent tags: simh-update
Updated ChangeLog for the imminent release check-in: 600a9459a8 user: tangent tags: simh-update
New release policy: point at the release branch for released version file and directory links, using trunk only for the prerelease version notes. check-in: c5b5ced48b user: tangent tags: simh-update
Updated SIMH to GH commit 2f66e74c506420959d2591ffd1700a9b58d59f28. EDIT: Moved to the simh-update branch since it breaks clean builds. (Worked fine prior to commit due to preexisting RK05 and TU56 media that didn't get rebuilt as part of testing.) check-in: e3aba3706e user: tangent tags: simh-update
MIME type fix for previous check-in: efb452f916 user: tangent tags: trunk
