snakeware - a new Linux distro with a fully Python userspace, inspired by the Commodore 64

https://github.com/joshiemoore/snakeware/

Our distro boots directly into a Python environment, where you can then do whatever you want. We do not use X11 or systemd or anything like that, our window manager draws directly to /dev/fb0. It's fun to build a window manager around pygame, it would not be fun to write a new X11 window manager.

I'd love to hear thoughts on this, especially if anybody gets a chance to try it out. It's still in early stages, but I'm going to continue developing it and I would welcome contributors.

Hey I'd love to try this, but I'm wondering if you could release an .iso rather than just a .img? I've no idea if that's a tall task or not, just would be more convenient to install in my particular hypervisor, otherwise I have to mess with dd and ZFS block device conversion, yuck.

Looks like a cool project, nice job.
>>
>>76129189
I like the idea of the project and that would be nice but IMO pip would need to be improved a lot for that. apt does a much better job at managing my Python packages than pip could at the moment.

How about a force curve and sound tests? Box navy, speed navy, crystal navy all have tactile events that go up to about 100g. Nothing more needs to be said there but I can explain why that's undesirable if you're feeling particularly dumb today. Your fingers can't tell the difference because you're slamming 100 gram keys at 90 wpm. Never suggest navies again. >>76114462 Spend the$5 or whatever on 10 navies if you must
you'll only have to actuate it once before you toss it in the garbage
It's worse than typing on those membranes that feel sluggish because it's even heavier.
The only people that like navy cannot type.
Here is an example of what will typically happen when you go from a reasonable weight of 60 grams to literally 100 grams.
Look at the speed of his fingers after getting part way through the typing test.
The massive and visible reduction in CPM is just navy nevermind speed navy which is arguably one of the worst and most unusable switches ever made. Every keystroke becomes heavier at under 2mm than bottoming out a Cherry Clear before slamming into the plate.

You would do something like this
createpotentialPrime(int *potentialPrime, int val){int multipleSix = 0;potentialPrime[0] = multipleSix - 1;potentialPrime[1] = multipleSix + 1;}

Then check if it's a prime by doing divisions.
it's one of those problems you have to brute force, but you can brute force in more efficient ways then others.

Morons don't realise that at some point you have to generate a prime table, it doesn't just appear from no where.
>>
>>76130006
oops I missed a line.

createpotentialPrime(int *potentialPrime, int val){int multipleSix = 0;multipleSix = val * 6;potentialPrime[0] = multipleSix - 1;potentialPrime[1] = multipleSix + 1;}
>>
>>76123978
Sieve of Eratosthenes has a lot of divisions involved and is quote slow to compute.
There are plenty of interesting prime patterns, some better than others.
Some will give you a prime through a brute force method, others MAY give you a prime but are much faster to compute. It all entirely depends on what you want to do with your primes.
The method I used was multiples of 6 + or - 1. on either side will be a prime, but you're not really sure which side.
>>
>>76125921
>because the specific code being refactored was for primes under 100
Talking about efficiency for primes below 100 is just silly so I ignored that.

>i wonder if there is really a log(n) prime test
I may have misremembered. Miller-Rabin is O(log(n)**3)
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller%E2%80%93Rabin_primality_test
and
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baillie%E2%80%93PSW_primality_test
makes no mention of running time though I suspect it should be faster.

>i have no idea what the probabilities look like
They can easily be brought below the "a lightning might strike the computer while doing the calculation" threshold.
So it's not something to worry about. Also, you wouldn't be the first to look for counterexamples and if you know in which range you're in you can often have confidence with what choice of parameters you are already safe.

It would be pretty cool if they do, since this will ultimately force all devs to develop for Linux, but I honestly doubt they would.

Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread, rms edition.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS. (They suck though.)
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.
