IRC Logs for #crux-devel Saturday, 2013-04-13

Romsterregarding webkit i must use icu i tried to disable it and i can not. so i really do need harfbuzz with icu support.09:58
teK_hey folks.. I'm currently packaging lxc and it requires some docbookXYZ package for building the man pages.. I'm not willing to include that as a build dependency but instead want to provide the man pages (ripped off of ubuntu) on crux.nu10:46
Romsterwhy not generate it from the tarball then include that on the source?10:49
teK_I hate providing whole orts on (like mplayer)10:49
teK_the docs are 120KB gzip'd10:50
teK_so putting them into our port tree is not an option either, IMHO10:50
Romsterso put them on the crux site and include the path in source.10:50
teK_I'll have to die in a way at the end :p10:51
teK_at least that's what we say in Germany10:51
teK_-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 343K [2013/02/27] uptimed/uptimed-0.3.16.patch*10:52
teK_ok :P10:52
Romsterdoesn't make much sense to a english man.10:52
teK_if there's a problem you have to chose one solution if it's bad, too ;)10:53
Romsterpersonally i don't mind the xml manual page generation. can make man doc html pdf out of the same file.10:54
Romsterbut everyone else seems to disagree.10:54
teK_I thinkit sucks huge time  :)10:54
teK_no ... even from a developer's perspective10:54
teK_just include the damned man page in the tarball10:55
teK_it has always been that way and it worked just fine10:55
Romsterdo you expect to maintain a ton of different files and keeping them in sync or just 1 file?10:55
teK_no need forinfo pages or documentation in pdf files (SRSLY, WTF)10:55
Romsteri really don't understand the hostility or logic.10:55
teK_logic is to keep dependencies down (or if it has to be sgml or smth. on the side of _one_ developer, not _all_ source-compiling users)10:56
Romsteri do tink info is dumb thugh but html man pdf i see no issues with them formats10:56
Romsterthey dont change much they take little space or timeto compile, compared to the huge chromium... if anything is a disease it's webkit chromium xine firefox nto the documentation system. though i must confress texlive is crazy.10:58
teK_that may be true, BUT:10:59
Romsterbut anyways i'm gonna end up moving any manual generation ports i maintain out of contrib/opt because i'm sick of this shit period.10:59
teK_I'm getting angry if I see things like that:10:59
teK_% ./configure > /dev/null && echo $?10:59
teK_/usr/bin/perl -c -w db2x_manxml11:00
teK_Can't locate XML/SAX/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16/linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16 /usr/lib/perl5/5.16/linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.16 .) at db2x_manxml line 2413.11:00
teK_that's for docbook2X-0.8.8 that's needed for the lxc manual pages11:00
teK_configure is supposed to detect that and now I ended up wasting my time with this. Using ubuntu's man pages on crux. period, too. :P11:00
Romsterwhat ever just do it. i wont have to hear about it again.11:01
teK_don't be mad :]11:01
Romsterdon't complain when someone says they found some edit in the man pages referring to ubuntu that isn't in crux -_-.11:01
teK_I won't. :)11:02
Romsteri'm not so much mad as more frustrated.11:02
teK_don't be frustrated either, your work is appreciated11:02
Romstermaybe my work but my company is another thing. a friendly environment. lately i haven't been that friendly, sorry.11:03
Romsteri just have a strong opinion.11:03
teK_can't see an error in that -^11:03
Romsteri'm also cutting back on ports jsut too much effort anymore. so i'm pruning out what i don't use anymore or deem useless. if anyone wants to pick those up they can.11:04
teK_you can skip lxc :)11:05
Romsteri don't maintain that afaik -_-11:05
teK_except you insist on building the docs on build time;)11:05
teK_portdb says so but your version is rather outdated11:05
Romsteri haven't had lots of time to look at crux.11:06
Romstermy private repo only sees a couple of ports bumped.11:06
Romsterbut that's besides the point opt contrib should all work. my personal stuff can be sorted out later on.11:07
Romsterthis is going off topic.11:07
Romsteri should take another holiday off work when i can got tons of time saved up.11:08
teK_I had that problem, too.. focus. It's better for you :)11:08
Romsteri'll fix up uptimed. that's a pretty big file for git.11:08
teK_you won't have to do that for me.. I just ran a search for the top ten biggest file in {core,opt,contrib}11:09
teK_didn't even know you maintained it :)11:09
Romsteri'm too snappy from pressure stress, i so need to get away from technology and enjoy life a little more.11:09
teK_I'm fine if you leave it11:09
Romsternew version 1711:09
teK_play some ping pong11:09
Romsteri do that every tuesday night and darts monday nights. and it's table tennis -_-11:10
teK_don't you have some poisonous spider or snake to farm? *stereotypes*11:11
teK_btw.. what are you doing for aliving?11:11
Romsteroh please next you'll say i'm down under... :D11:11
Romsteri disagree the world is a speare in space there is no up or down side.11:12
RomsterIT work fixing computers, photocopiers mostly11:12
Romsteri even do some electronics stuff too, since i'm qualified in that too.11:13
Romsterand weekends sound mixing light operating setup packup sound gear.11:13
Romsternot getting much money out of it all. paying stuff off. i feel as if i'd have far more time and enjoyment in life if i wasn't working at that IT shop and i just did my backyard repairs and was on the dole.11:14
Romstersince our rent was rebated before i got full time work and everything else i used to get a discount on.11:14
Romsterso really i'm working harder not making much more after bills.11:15
Romsterand more stressed.11:15
Romsterand less time todo other things.11:15
Romsterbut finding work is hard here.11:15
Romsteri guess a job is a job good and bad and all that.11:15
teK_it doesn't have to be that way11:16
Romsterabout the only thing realxing anymore is crux, music, movies, and  sports. and the sound work i do.11:17
Romsteri'll probably work here a few more years then think about moving to another area. and other work.11:18
teK_if that's better foryou11:18
Romsterdepends what sort of work i can get. i guess most of it is always stressful.11:18
teK_it's a question of attitude, too11:19
Romsterit dosn't help that i do most if nto all the work in the workshop while the others go out and do other out of the shop jobs.11:19
teK_you seem to take things even more seriously than I do :)11:19
Romsterperfectionist does not help11:19
Romsteri take pride in what i do. and i do it right the first time.11:20
teK_at leastyou could try to reduce that11:20
Romstereven if it takes longer.11:20
teK_haha unlike me with the spice ports :D11:20
Romsteri think frinnest has made more mess with glib man pages and pkg-config breaking stuff.11:21
Romsterbut i've broken stuff not realizing it too.11:21
teK_yet the world did not stop spinning11:21
Romstermore users use those than spice.11:21
teK_sure it's not good etc. but.. nobody's perfect11:21
Romsterno one ever is.11:22
teK_spice? Two users: me and frinnst. I suppose ;)11:22
