pitillomaro, me too, thanks :)03:51
pitillonice, but I thougth you were using xgl, are you using it?03:53
maropitillo: I am when I'm in gnome03:53
pitillomaro, I cant see a quality image by vnc. I asked because didnt see the tranparents windows :) but with the cube... I see the xgl effect03:55
* treach fails to see the point with vnc. :P03:56
maropitillo: the first shot was xfce03:57
marojust gnomified the panel layout03:58
pitillomaro, :O It seems gnome.. I thought it was gnome.03:58
treach"gnomified" as in using the gnome stuff with xfce, or as in themeing?03:58
marothe cube thing is gnome, but not the first one03:58
marotreach: just as in moving the applets around03:59
* pitillo saving bandwitch :D03:59
treachok, I guess they changed the look of the panel then.03:59
treachIMO the old xfce panel was really ugly looking.04:00
maroI also resized it and added an additional one04:00
maroit still has the cde-like layout by default04:00
rxipekwm + fbpanel ftw04:00
treachcool. :-)04:00
treachpitillo: saving bandwith compared to what?04:00
pitillotreach, I?ll take a shot of the older panel of xfce.. seems nice to me with a black theme04:01
treachI never liked xfce enough to try theming to my liking.04:02
pitillotreach, saving my bandwidth :)... I prefer velocity than quality04:02
marooh, I also use tango icons04:02
marothey still have the ugly rodent theme by default :(04:02
pitillo(ummmm dont know so much about nx)04:03
*** richi_aut has joined #crux04:03
treachpitillo: I don't think you got that right. I meant "compared to what alternative technology, that you consider more wastefull with bandwidth."04:03
treachmaro: just be happy it doesn't look like xfce 3x anymore. :)04:04
maroI am, I am... :)04:04
pitillotreach, well I dont know how many alternatives I have and I dont know so much about nx too. And for me is more confortable to use vnc because I dont need to read about another alternatives04:06
pitilloworking with vnc and 256 colors I get all I need :). I?ll try to read about another alternatives04:08
treachif you are using windows rdp is pretty good. and with X on linux I've always had pretty good luck with ssh -X -Y -C.04:08
treachof course, if you are on a modem, things might look a bit different, but then again, vnc over modem is no joy imo..04:09
pitillotreach, Im in windows at work,connected by vnc to home. I?ll take a look to rdp too. 16Kb of upload at home, sufficient bandwidth, imo.04:19
treachok. rdp is used when your server is windows.04:19
treachI've never used ssh tunneling X apps on 16Kb, but with enough encryption it might work.04:21
treachdoh.. multitasking isn't my strong point.. *COMPRESSION* I mean, not encryption, dammit.04:24
rxianyone tried matchbox recently?\04:38
*** mike_k has quit IRC04:48
*** mike_k has joined #crux04:49
pitillowell, Im using a tunnel ssh to conect with vnc, by this way I got encription with vnc but lost a bit of bandwidth too. I think this is the best solution by now, but continue reading to see if there is another way. :)04:57
treachsure, just forward your x apps.04:57
treach(and get an X server for your windows system)04:58
pitillowell, but Im working in windows... is that posible? I tried putty and there is no way to get it working04:58
treachpitillo: this one has worked pretty well for me, when I've had the need for it.
treachjust start it, connect with ssh and make *sure* X accepts to forward your apps, then just start them from the prompt.05:00
rxicould i use qemu to emulate x86 so i can run opera?05:03
treachbochs might help though.05:03
treachvektori: afaik anyway..05:04
rxihas to be able to run on hppa05:04
vektoriWhy not?05:04
treachvektori: Iafaik qemu isn't a hardware emulator.05:05
vektoriIt's primarily a hardware emulator.05:05
tilmanof course it is05:05
vektoriKQEMU, the virtualizer is just an afterthought.05:05
treachoh, ok. I always thought it was more like vmware than bochs..05:05
tilmanno hppa in host cpu though05:05
tilmanso you cannot emulate x86 on hppa ;)05:06
rxidamn :(05:06
rxii dont wanna use firefox *crys*05:06
pitillotreach, well, it seems a nice alternative but I cant see my desktop. With vnc Im working directly with my desktop. But sure I?ll try it. Thanks for the info :)05:06
treachpitillo: depends on what you are after, your apps or your desktop?05:06
treachbesides, there is really nothing that stops you from running the entire desktop-session that way if you want to iirc, but IMO that's a bit excessive.05:07
treachrxi: maybe you should try dillo then. :P05:08
treachat least it's not firefox ;-)05:09
rxithat just uses mozilla doesnt it?05:09
treachhehe, no.05:09
maronope, but forget about css etc.05:09
rxiits a toss up between dillo and firefox :)05:10
pitillotreach, this is the point... well, Im running my desktop to use some apps and the most important, see the router?s logs. By this way I can see all with less quality(256colors) but runs well. I think that is a nice alternative in front of vnc if the number of apps were less. (irc+im+mail for example)05:10
treachthere is nothing that stops you from running several apps this way.....05:11
treachapp1 &05:12
treachapp2 &05:12
treachbut of course, use whatever you feel comfortable with. :-)05:12
pitillotreach, true... but... another point is that I should?t start a session, because the apps grown by 2. In my session and in the connection.05:14
treachsorry I can't make sense of that.05:14
pitillotreach, yes, but its nice to talk with other people about. Another opinions always can get a bit of knowledge.05:15
pitillotreach, sorry, my english level is too poor. I refer that if I start the session at home I start all apps and if I connect from work fowarding X apps I need to run another time them. The solution is, not to start the session at home to save cpu and mem, and launch all apps by the forward app05:17
treachah... I see.05:17
treachYou should use console apps, then you could use screen ;-)05:18
pitillojajaaajaja terminal apps.. but only one by connection :D05:20
treachnono.. screen can run a lots of apps.. :-)05:21
treachyikes. I'm getting "infected".05:21
treachbah, I'd better get back to battling with samba.. :-(05:22
treach"lol"? Schadenfreude is the one and only true joy, apparently.05:26
rxiif i knew what that was i might agree05:28
pitillo:? need to read more about screen, dont understand how launching a terminal app  can be in another screen. Learning all days... :D05:28
treachscreen is really cool.05:29
vektoriI couldn't live without screen. It's probably the first thing I install when setting up a system. :)05:31
rxiive never used it05:31
rxiive used minicom plenty05:32
vektoriThat's like saying you've never eaten an apple but you still play golf.05:33
rxiim just reading the screen page on gnu.org05:33
rxicall me dumb but i dont see the diff between screen and xterm05:38
tilmanhit "ctrl-a c" in screen05:38
tilmanwow, a new terminal opens05:38
tilmanxterm = 1 terminal05:38
tilmanscreen = n terminals05:38
tilmanthat's why it's called a "terminal multiplexer"05:38
rxilol .. just type xterm and get a new term?05:39
treachhit c-a d and detatch from your session..?05:39
vektorirxi: Oh, and open a new ssh connection when you want to two things simultaneously?05:39
tilmanare you drunk?05:39
rxiright .... /me goes over here now05:39
treachrxi: and login type "xterm -r" and get all your stuff up again as they were? ;-)05:40
*** aeolus has joined #crux05:40
*** aeolus has left #crux05:40
rximan i should have just kept my mouth shut .. its like gentoo fanboy club in here :P05:41
vektoriYou hurt my feelings. :(05:41
treachnot really, but comparing screen to xterm is *really*, *really* ignorant..05:42
rxitreach: hence why i said "20:38 < rxi> call me dumb..."05:42
treachwell, I guess we did. :-)05:42
rxiwell ill emerge screen and see what happens05:45
vektoriDidn't you give up on Gentoo?05:46
rxiyeah i did but i gave up one netbsd when the iso wouldnt boot05:46
vektoriIt's hard to argue with that.05:46
rxiim not sure if it even works with my cpu05:46
vektoriIf NetBSD doesn't work, I don't think anything will. :P05:47
rxilol .. freebsd and openbsd will but meh05:47
rxidont like openbsd and freebsd actually doesnt support it looking at their website05:48
rxigentoo is like windows .. the only reason im using it cos its the only feasible choice05:48
rxithey both shit me equally05:49
pitillowell, nice the  "terminal multiplexer" term. I?ll go to read. It sounds like what vektori said, it seems a lot usefull. I need more time :D05:50
rxiie: i install screen and it says: Some dangerous key bindings have been removed or changed....05:51
rxii think id prefer it use mrxvt or a tabbed terminal. i dont really have any need to remote screen either05:56

vektoriOh my god! Something must be done!08:09
treachCrux is dying, distrowatch confirms it.08:09
treachwe are doomed.08:09
scriptdevili am an arch user wanting to take up crux08:10
scriptdevilbecause of ports08:10
scriptdevilwhy not08:10
scriptdevilJukka Heino> u r not doomes08:11
treachah.. but vektori that's encouraging isn't it?08:11
*** frobnik has joined #crux08:12
vektoriYeah. :P08:12
treachit'd be worse if you were told you *are* doomed. :P08:12

treachbye! happy journey.08:13
treachbah, that one was easy..08:14

treachheya cptn, long time no C. ;-)08:15
scriptdevili want a solid base i can build on and compile software unless i want dont want to08:15
Hanscriptdevil, then crux is not for you08:16
treachwell, if you don't want to compile stuff crux isn't for you.08:16
scriptdevili want the libs installed in the default places08:16
scriptdevilI want to compile08:16
treachyou can get away with binaries for firefox, ooo but for the rest...08:16
scriptdevili will use ports for jdk etc which is not open08:16
treachoh, well, opera is binaries too.08:16
scriptdevili compiled firefox on LFS08:16
* scriptdevil is talking about closed source stuff like jre08:17
treachyou don't need crux for jre/jdk.08:17
scriptdevilwhich i cant compile08:17
scriptdevili will compile everything in source tarball08:18
scriptdevili want ports for the closed stuff like jre, can u get me a tarball dor jre by the way08:18
scriptdevilu cant08:18
scriptdevilso i need ports for that08:19
treachno. but a selfextracting binary isn't that difficult..08:19
scriptdevilAlso i used bsd for a long time08:19

rxigood riddence to bad rubbish08:19
treach"this isn't the distro you are looking for..."08:19
rxii dont know i understood what he was really after08:19
treachI'm not sure he knew that either.08:20
rxihehe sounded like it08:20
rehabdoll#crux is somehow short for "newbie friendly"08:22
treachwell, there *are* limits.08:23
rxisome plese bold and under and change the fold size of "experienced" to 7 on the website:)08:23
rxicptn: how did you go with that guy about crux/sparc08:24
treachrxi: actually in some cases I think even <blink> could have it's use.. :P08:25
cptnrxi: I actually answered him before contacting you... he basically asked whether I would look at the error message, and I agreed08:25
marothe "crux isn't for you" attitude is what I love most about crux :)08:25
cptnrxi: haven't heard from him though08:25
maropretty much every other distro has been spoiled because they want to satishfy everybody08:26
treachNobody in their right mind should accuse us of envangilicism.08:26
rehabdollby the way, im curious if there is a specific reason why bash 3.1 is not in core08:28
rehabdolland dont hold back if anyone thinks its a stupid question, just let me have it08:28
rehabdolli get turned on by irc-abuse08:29
treachbash is evil and considered legacy. It's being phased out by better shells. ;)08:29
treach(sorry, I just got pissed of wrt debian attitude towards mp3.)08:30
rxior so treach and a few unamed people think :)08:30
*** hulahub has quit IRC08:30
treachrxi: no, but I think I'll include the <sarcasm></sarcasm> tags the next time..08:31
jjpkzomg! crux is dying because the ratings are falling on distrowatch. What will become of this?!?! :D :D08:31
jjpkThat made my day.08:31
treachwe'll add another similarity with *BSD then I guess.08:32
jjpkRatings are overrated.08:32
rxiits a good thing for us if our rating drops08:32
treach"Crux, successfully dying since 1999" or something.08:32

jdolanlol.. ah fuck it.08:51
jdolanhi everyone, btw.08:52
rxihehe hey jay08:52
jjpkJust the daily dose of elitism.08:53
treachI liked how he was about to compile everything. In a tar file. :-)08:53
*** fathom has joined #crux08:53
treachprobably more of a linguistic screw-up than a declaration of actual intent. But.. :D08:54
treachjjpk: btw, if you think it was elitistic, do you volonteer to do the handholding these people would need for quite some time? ;-)08:56
jjpkOf course not. ;)08:56
rxii try to laugh and make things worse08:57
treachjjpk: then it's not elitism, it's pragmatism. :-)08:57
jjpkIf you say so. :p09:02
treachI guess it's depends on your view, but IMO it's better to tell people they are in too deep, than that they get a frustrating experience and blame the distro.09:06
