< emilengler> Is Bitcoin Core installing to /usr/local by default? Or does it install to /usr/bin if /usr/local does not exists
< emilengler> Or does make install puts the bins somewhere else? Does it depend on the machine?
< sipa> emilengler: "install" ?
< sipa> oh, make install!
< emilengler> sipa: Yes make install
< fanquake> Much left to do before a 0.18.1rc1 tag?
< bitcoin-git> [bitcoin] ariard opened pull request #16426: Remove Chain::Lock interface (master...2019-07-remove-more-locking-chain) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/16426
< aj> wumpus: "bitcoin-cli getblockchaininfo: invalid response" -- did you resolve that? it looks like that's a "couldn't parse the response as json" error, maybe bitcoind is still starting up?
< wumpus> aj: yes, I've solved the issue, it was due to a freebsd package upgrade invalidating the boost shared libraries while invoking bitcoin-cli, so it was trying to parse the wrong thing :-)
< wumpus> aj: 'Shared object "libboost_system.so.1.69.0" not found, required by "bitcoin-cli"' doesn't look like a getblockchaininfo response
< wumpus> anyhow, sorry for the false alarm
< fanquake> wumpus were you planning on tagging an rc1 this weekend? Or are we waiting for #16414?
< gribble> https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/16414 | 0.18: wallet: Fix -maxtxfee check by moving it to CWallet::CreateTransaction by promag ยท Pull Request #16414 ยท bitcoin/bitcoin ยท GitHub
< wumpus> fanquake: I think evrything is ready if we want to do rc1 now
< fanquake> wumpus sure
< fanquake> I think we've waited long enough to be getting this out.
< wumpus> agree, also, we could always include 16414 in rc2, if rc2 turns out to be necessary
< fanquake> ๐Ÿ‘
< bitcoin-git> [bitcoin] laanwj pushed tag v0.18.1rc1: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/compare/v0.18.1rc1
< wumpus> ^^
< fanquake> wumpus: thanks. Am gitian building
< fanquake> however am stuck on a horribly slow connection, and need to re-download a few things ๐Ÿ™„
< wumpus> fanquake: even with a slow connection, I doubt the downloading is a significant part of the total build time
< fanquake> wumpus: yes. Still annoying being stuck on <~1mbp/s hah
< wumpus> oh wow yes i can imagine
< wumpus> looks like the ppc64 linux build for rc1 is failing
< fanquake> wumpus: in what way?
< wumpus> i'm re-running the linux build right now to rule out a fluke, will make an issue with the build log if it persists
< fanquake> my linux builds seem to have completed ok
< wumpus> ok!
< achow101> when will we switch off gitian to guix?
< kallewoof> I am considering volunteering to help out the bitcoin/bips repository. It has 108 open PRs, dating back to 2015. Who besides Luke is maintaining that?
< fanquake> Don't know about a full switch, but I'm hoping there will be Guix binaries produced alongside gitian for 0.19.0. Even if just for linux (but I'm sure we'll get macOS & Windows sorted).
< wumpus> fanquake: i was using the descriptors from the wrong tree
< harding> kallewoof: AFAIK, luke-jr is the only one. However, I'd check with him to see if the backlog is because he's low on time or because he's waiting for ACKs on PRs from the various BIP authors as he usually doesn't merge anything besides trivial typo fixes unless one of the authors approves the change.
< luke-jr> most of them are lacking relevant ACKs
< luke-jr> even trivial typo fixes still need such an ACK :/
