tilmanneed more testers of that util-linux-ng port (crux-devel)08:37
Romsteris it stable?08:42
pitillomay be that Q can be an answer about the needed of testers, to see if it's stable08:44
sepentilman, from that port I'll test bin/* and sbin/* tools at night08:47
Romsteri mean stable enough that it hasn't crashed /yet/08:47
treach"I need testers"08:48
treach"is it stable?"08:48
treachtilman: got a port for it somewhere?08:50
Romsteryeah no package of util-linux-ng08:50
Romsteri jsut found08:50
Romstertreach, nevermind i'm being dumb...08:50
Romsteri should think before typing08:51
pitilloI think Jue added a file at ML... but not sure if it's a port (util-linux-ng- May be he uses this to name ports08:52
Romsterguess i'll throw a port together08:53
treachdude. there IS a port.08:53
treachit's on the ml, I just missed it.08:53
pitilloI think it's abit hard to see, because he didn't mention it a his mail. (but the port was attached)08:54
jaegerit's working fine for me so far, just wanted to give it a bit before I responded to the ML post08:56
*** DarkNekros has joined #crux-devel08:57
DarkNekrosmorning you all ;)08:57
tilmanyes, juergen posted his port to the crux-devel mailing list08:59
j^2hey guys09:17
Romsterpitillo, oh ah well i made my own.09:26
Romsteri'll evently have all the ports i use in my own repo.09:28
Romsteri should eb able to wipe my system but keep /etc and /home stuff and be able to reinstall everything from my repo09:28
Romsterwithout having to mess with anythng.09:28
Romsterunlike some maintainers i email and they don't do anything (some do some don't, i won't name who) i decided to keep my own copys.09:30
Romsteri'll edit them if anyone points out mistakes or improvments.09:31
sepenwhy you don't just use ML or mail directly to mantainer?09:32
Romsteri can still send patches and stuff but if they don't change it it's there loss.09:32
Romsteri email directly to maintianer09:32
pitillobut do you mean core/opt/contrib maintainers? or private ports maintainers?09:32
RomsterML is useless to me.09:32
Romsteropt/contrib hmm might of been a few core too can't remember09:33
Romstersome changes went though some where minor things i don't mind if they don't go though but major things. like wine not listing a dependency i found... and i emailed..09:33
pitillothe ml may be isn the best way to report a port problem... I think it has is use09:34
Romsteri send to the maintainer.09:35
pitillo*isn't *its09:35
Romsteror i put it on the bug tracker.09:35
RomsterML isn't ment for port reporting in my books.09:35
pitilloyes, I forgot that :)09:35
Romsterunless it affects everyone in some way.09:35
pitilloyes, that was the fact I tried to wirte in my last sentence...09:36
Romsterlike a port rename that has dependencys.09:36
Romstereven though no on in Australia can use the ML09:36
Romsterand it's been like thiat since the host change.09:36
Romster1995 i found a old post of mine in a archive09:37
Romstersince the clc.. to change or something like that no more ML09:37
Romsteranyways the ML is mostly full of spam thesedays..09:38
pitilloat least you can see it at web and send mails from another way (gmail...)09:38
Romsterif i could be bothered.09:38
pitillohere I am testing util-linux-ng in a 2.3 and I can't see anything strange atm (only a few tries)09:40
jaegerit's full of spam?09:41
Romstersome of it well ok a few posts...09:42
pitillothere are some spam messages... but not full09:42
Romsteri read it and only get some good stuff from the ML i much prefer irc.09:42
Romsteryeah that's one such spam.09:52

sepenok sounds nice for me11:11
Romsterwarsow is'nt gonan be easy plus its a huge file like 90MB approx.11:13
Romsterok my typing is really shitty...11:13
jaegerthat's nothing, the old nwn port downloaded about 1.2G if I remember right11:15
*** Romster has quit IRC11:23
*** Roomster has joined #crux-devel11:23
Roomster1.2G yikes11:24
Roomsterand yay gotta love when DSL decides to reconnect for no reason.11:24
jaegernwn was the reason I added large file support to pkgutils11:24
Roomsterah thats the one i saw a id ea to add a new file patch like the nostrip one works for extracting archives like i had a port i didn't want to extract a zip file..11:30
Roomsterso you could add "/.zip" to say .noextract11:31
Roomsterand pkgutils would leave that alone.11:31
Roomsterand jsut copy it across to $SRC11:31
Roomsterwould save all that hacking around.11:32
Roomsterand that port would so benefit from lzma.11:33
Roomsterit's like wtf using .gz on such huge files instead of bzip2, but now lzma is better than bzip211:34
Roomsterin size and decompression speed.11:34
Roomstercompression is slow at the -9 rate though.11:34
Roomsteri've been messing with it and i like it.11:34
jaegerwell, back at the start of pkgutils those big files weren't a concern, I imagine11:37
Roomsteri guess11:38
sepenwell, 19:00 Im going to home11:55
