I'm pretty sure that when I build openjdk-8 using sbuild, it tries by default to use all my cores. Generally, I don't want to use all twelve threads on my laptop and squeeze me off to the side, so I try to pass the upper case "-J10" or something like that to the build command, which is a stronger command to limit it to ten threads.

For sbuild, the command is something like this:
Code: Select all
sbuild  --arch=amd64 -d buster --debbuildopt=-J10 --force-orig-source -s -A \
--extra-repository="deb [trusted=yes] buster wtf" \
--extra-repository="<some other repo you might want to tack onto Buster for the build>"

Note that I added the wtf repo there so you can get their openjdk-8 packages for your reinvention of the wheel.
That's all one command--I use backslashes to organize it better in my cheat sheets.

Mirbsd is using the same exact orig source tarball as Debian is, the only difference being in the debian folder's instructions on how to build the dang thing.

I was wrong I did not monitor properly that debuild was not running on all cores. The build tests at the end made it low slow.

I still don't know why the binary sizes differ so much. Probably due to build flags.

If I really wanted security, I probably would use the proprietary Oracle Java 8. I don't have the time to check how safe is this openjdk source, etc.
If I wanted security, I would make sure Java is skipped totally but I couldn't.

I probably would use linux form scratch to really check what I am running. ANd I would rely on how much "peer reviewed" is the stuff I install. And this openjdk8 would not pass the check.

But I moved on. I can now focus on "my life" like Torvalds likes to say. And my programming life consists now in computing a Fast fourrier transform on a mobile device recording sound, to ultimately analyze the justness of my music instrument.

The algorithms around LPCM are fantastic. The actual physical process of sound is transformed into a voltage signal, which is then digitalized at super with high sample rate (the frequency of sampling is higher than the earable modes frequencies). A wave file is so simple.
