pitillothinking in change the server distro... from sarge to crux. What about that? Sarge offers stability and security, in front of performance and stability (not sure if the same security too). Any opinion about this? (server P166MMX+128Mb)01:20
aonyou'd probably want a second box to compile updates01:37

ajaycanyone there?07:01
ajayci downloaded the crux disc07:01
ajaycpopped it into the drive07:01
ajaycwhen booting ti said cannot mount kernel07:01
ajaycany idea?07:01
rxithats a problem07:02
cptnajayc: what did you use as root= option?07:02
ajaycwhat do i have to use?07:02
treachyay for reading skills...07:02
cptn"(you might have to adjust the root= parameter, depending on your hardware configuration)."07:02
cptn(from the handbook)07:03
cptnrxi: it would if there was such a thing as mounting the kernel07:04
treachiirc, the first screen after booting speaks about it as well.07:04
rxicptn: hehee yeah .. dumb questions get dumb answers :P07:04
treach"This isn't the distro you are looking for."07:06
aonnow remember, there are no stupid questions, there are just stupid people07:06
prologiclet's not be too harsh :)07:07
treachwell, lack of reading skills isn't an indication of stupidity.07:07
jdolani was under the impression that Flyspray logins were our wiki names..07:07
aontreach: well, they try to teach it quite effectively these days :)07:08
rxiaon: i gueess he slipped through the nets :)07:08
aonreading comprehension is a totally different thing :)07:08
treachthey are just trying to get kids though the school system with the minimum of effort. :-/07:08
treachthere is an amazing amount of kids these days that can't read or write properly.07:09
aonno wonder you were after us in that some quality of education test :)07:09
ajaycjust wait what i contribute to CRUX07:10
aonajayc: i'm not targeting anyone, just banging the keys :)07:10
ajaycme too :D07:10
treachthis is an elite club for litterate people, we don''t want illiterates, we just pass them along to gentoo. :P07:11
ajaycyeah and then they graduate as PhD from there :P07:11
treachor maybe arch. :D07:11
ajaycyeah arch sucks07:12
treach"I'm not a mouse-clicker, I'm a PhD student!"07:13
ajayc"If using linux is wrong, i dont wanna be right"07:14
aonPhD is a rather broad term :)07:14
treachaon, yeah. And unfortunately, even if you manage to get your PhD it doesn't really prove what a lot of people seem to think it does..07:15
*** ningo has quit IRC07:16
aonlike having a master of philosophy in russian literature doesn't make you any less of a mouse-clicker :)07:20
treachexactly. Or that anyone who doesn't have an PhD is intellectually inferior.07:21
prologicyou guys are crazy07:25
treachyou mean "Hey I've got a peice of paper that says I'm smart and thus you shall all bow to me" is the sane attitude?07:27
*** cjames has quit IRC07:28
ajayci am crazy07:28
ajaycthe lord of crazy's07:29

Romsterdeus_ex, you still around or someone that knowas about sshd hosts.allow has ALL: ALL, and hosts.deny has the bad ips added right, but its still not blocking the hosts.deny listed ips. hosts.allow over riding hosts.deny?11:15
j^2ALL:ALL is scary unless it's in hosts.deny11:16
jaegersshd: all might be better11:16
j^2then you have to open up sshd:ALL11:16
j^2in hosts.allow11:16
*** mayhan has joined #crux11:21

hermithaha yeah17:22
*** jdolan_ has quit IRC17:22
faxmulderand did you find a solution?17:25
hermiti said "oh yeah thats why I dont use gnome"17:32
hermitkde went on very cleanly, in comparison17:32
hermitthough i dont like either of them17:32
hermiti just use a slim wm typically17:32
hermiti just thought i would experiment with them17:32
faxmuldernow i'm using kde17:32
hermitbut if i had to choose one or the other, i would take kde17:32
hermitkde combines lots of shit into a few core packages to make life easier17:32
hermitand easier it is17:32
faxmulderi think i will remain with kde17:33
