hi, a console colorizing utility:




Also, take a look at my Tabata Protocol soundtrack generator for Tabata'esque/ HIIT workouts here.

comment Is there a system to install multiple releases of all default linux applications for a given linux distro release series?
Forgive my ignorance, but would it be possible to install the NixOS package manager on a different distro?

Great idea. It will take me a long time to verify/accept this, but this is a good idea.

Unfortunately, that is correct. I would like to have access to each of these releases from one single system. I realize that 100% backwards compatibility is likely impossible, but I'm wondering if people are having some reasonable level of backwards compatibility without resorting to manual, recursive tarball madness.

I'm aware of ldd as well as what dlopen does, but this is a class of tool that cuts the gordian knot of dependency hell by simply including all the included shared objectsin a container and then chroot'ing so that the binary finds all the libraries underneath that directory. There are two implementations of this tool but the name escapes my memory. It is like creating a psuedo-static binary after the binary has already been created. It can make a binary portable between distros where LD_LIBRARY_PATH is different.
