sepenhmm I need some weeks too07:12
sepennah were changes related to iso, there is no hurryu07:13
RomsterhorrorStruck, did you enable gold and how not making it the default but just available for those ports that choose to use gold.07:13
Romsterand it'll work with a mixed bfd/gold ld?07:13

horrorStruckRomster: gold is enabled at buildtime. you can chose the default linker at build time too (cf. binutils Pkgfile). now that i'm starting to slightly understand what i'm doing, you can get all new-gen toolchain ports here: sha1 5514c1fef5b7ad9a6f43765a8091f1976bd12f40 binutils is a 2.22 snapsoht (.52) that makes gold builds fine. be careful if you have gcc built against ppl, latest ppl version (my port) has soname14:36
horrorStruckon a side note, don't you crux devs think it would nice to review Romster's xorg patches (no hurry, maybe 5/10 patches a day, I guess majority are just version bumps anyway). that would be great because 1/ one of our devs has put a lot of time in this (and still continues)  2/ to be honest, i think it may be rather frustrating to do this without getting feedback (and no one likes frustration :P) 3/ i hate my 3 pages ports -d14:55
rmullHmm, I've never tried ports -d before15:15
rmullI don't really understand part of its output15:15
rmullWhat is the "installed" collection?15:15
rmullI have firefox locked, FWIW15:15

frinnsthorrorStruck: romster's repo looks just fine. but it's probably not a great idea to just merge it into 2.716:37
frinnstbetter to do it for 2.816:37
Romsteragreed the effort it takes to merge it would make everyone have to pretty much rebuild there xorg and other ports that depend on xorg.17:27
RomsterhorrorStruck, i must admit i haven't looked at dropping obsolete ports yet and i would like to at some point rename the descriptions of every xorg port than the generic one it has now.17:28
Romsterfeedback on the ML about updated xorg seems slow.17:29
Romsterjaeger, jue teK_ frinnst deus_ex sepen I just thought, I could start a 2.8 branch on xorg git and add in my current work, and who wants to move to 2.8 before crux 2.8 is out could do so. or wait for crux 2.8 to include updated ports.17:31
*** deus_ex is now known as pedja17:32
Romsterthose that arn't here should see that in the log17:32
Romsterwhen they return.17:32
pedja(12:28:54 AM) Romster: feedback on the ML about updated xorg seems slow.<----that is a good thing, if anything is broken, it will be a public outcry :)17:35
teK_I _finally_ figured out the red border problem with chromium, if anyone cares <317:36
teK_frinnst maybe17:36
pedjaCrux spoiled us, everything just works[tm].17:36
Romsteryeah i wouldn't mind knowing.17:36
teK_it's about compile flags17:37
teK_funny thing because I don't do much there17:37
Romsterpedja, the thing is i haven't noticed anything broken yet, except if i bump them stubs that brakes a ton of stuff.17:37
teK_-match=native -mtune=native to be precise17:37
Romsteroh that causes it?17:37
teK_as it  seems17:37
Romsteri'm using amdfam10 here17:38
Romsterwhat cpu are you on?17:38
Romsterso i guess x86_64 or i686 works for you?17:38
teK_core i7 2600K pure 64bit17:39
Romsteri only just noticed i was not using ../conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf17:39
Romsterfor fontconfig17:39
teK_i thought it would be gdk-pixbuf but I have to recheck17:39
Romstersudo ln -s ../conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf17:39
pedjaRomster: is there a separate xorg repo with your updates, or do you have a branch in xorg.git?17:39
Romsterso it could be any port that chromium depends on?17:40
Romstercan't be many of those since chromium includes the kitchen sink17:40
teK_nono  I narrowed it downI think..17:40
Romsterpedja, so far it's separate i posted to the ML
Romsterand for those that use multilib
Romsterthat sits on top of xorg17:42
Romster hard work in there.17:42
teK_it's not compile flags17:48
teK_it's gdk-pixbuf built on my regular system vs. built in a clean chroot17:49
teK_works not vs. works17:49
Romsterhmm finddeps on gdk-pixbuf off the iso and off your system rebuild?17:52
Romsterpossibly do a md5sum over all the files in gdk-pixbuf and compare them before and after17:54
teK_not  today17:55
teK_its almost 1pm here17:55
Romster8.55am and 4.7C out side :D17:56
pedjaRomster: there is no question that you invested a lot of time and effort in xorg updates, but frinnst is right, merging your repo should wait until 2.8 development starts, imho.17:56
teK_4.7C? in Australia??17:56
