like seriously, where is this light coming from? there is no light underneath the save point when RTX is disabled...
and the build is unbroken
there are a few other things we can do that cannot be done so easily in alpine/abuild, because melange was explicitly designed to do them. i'll probably drop a technical writeup next week on the $dayjob blog.
welp that's the end of the patch 6.1 content
sooo much bloooooooom
but seriously, the bloom and lens flare is ridiculous
anyway, the real lesson here is that libapk was a mistake
when you use GNOME software and click "upgrade all", instead of creating and running a transaction that upgrades all packages at once, it upgrades the individual packages in alphabetical order.
this is highly dangerous, as packages may not get upgraded in the correct order.
well i got to the bottom of this mystery about apk "not checking transactional consistency" and the actual answer is that GNOME software's apk integration is just hopelessly broken.
how can somebody be this wrong and able to maintain packages?
apk also does not "check transactional consistency" even though the whole point of apk is that it solves for the entire system dependency set before committing any transaction 🙃
