koefzDamned foreign expressions and sayings.03:41
koefzIt really sucks not knowing all the nuances of other languages.03:41
koefzWhat different meanings can "on the nickel" have, primary in american english?03:41
koefzWhere are all you americans?03:42
jjpkProbably sleeping.03:42
koefzNah, he's only 9 hours ahead or so, isn't he?03:42
jjpkYou mean behind.03:43
koefzUhm, yeah.03:43
koefzHaven't had my coffee yet, sorry about that.03:43
jjpkHehe, it happens. :p03:43
Romsterhow do i use a not or ! on a if [ grep -i "username" /etc/shadow ];03:49
Romsterkoefz i can find out for you later when my friend usa friend is awake if you like.03:50
koefzCan't you wake him now instead?03:52
koefzAnycase I'd be grateful. Been googling for hours with nil reasults.03:52
Romstershould be up in an hour if you can wait that long03:53
koefzYeah, I can wait.03:54
Romsteryou wouldn't know how todo a if not for my bit of code there^ or do i have to use something like else code there fi ?03:54
koefzNo idea.03:55
koefzAnd it probably won't be better even with caffeine in the blood stream.03:56
Romsteri don't see a not or ! on the conditionals, meh i'll throw a else in there that'll fix that03:56
Romsterah figured it out04:04
Romsterif [ ! `grep -i "username" /etc/shadow` ]; then  echo "done"; fi04:04
Romsteri forgot the back tics04:04
Romsterif i get a linux maching saying hda: dma not ready, that means either the hdd, cable or controler is faulty right?04:13
Romsteri can't think of any other problems that would cause that, except maybe corupt bios04:14
koefzYour kernel can probably be fscked or misconfigured also.04:14
Romsterah maybe, i never thoght of that one04:14
Romsteri'm on i'll try 1904:15
Romsteri might have to go back a bit maybe04:16
Hanif ! grep -qi username /etc/shadow;04:20
Romsteri edned up using if [ ! `grep -i "_tor" /etc/shadow` ]; then04:22
Romsterso the [ ] arn't really required?04:22
Hanls /bin/[04:23
Romsterah i should use -q for silent04:24
Romsterhrmm i see04:28
Romsterwhy thend oes everyone use square brackets then i don't know, *really eneds a bash scripting book*04:28
rximan bash :)04:29
Romsterlol gawd *slaps self*04:29
Romsteri so arn't thinking this evening04:29
*** etherego has joined #crux04:30
Han[] == test; test returns 0 on succes and 1 on failure;04:31
HanYou tested if grep returns valid output or not, turn that into a string and then you let test return 0 or 104:32
HanI simply get the return code from grep.04:32
Romsterah so i only need that if i do if [ comamnd args ] == "string";04:32
Romsterif i get it now :/04:33
Romstermeh i'll read the man page sometime oviously i haven't got it yet04:33
Romsteroh right its not a comparsion it assigns [ command args ] == text; echo text04:34
*** deus_ex has joined #crux04:34

rxinymacro: you need either a matrox or voodoo to run the graphics05:42
rxior if it comes with a v/c with a evc connector you'd need an evc to vga adapter05:43
rxibeward any hp graphics cards dont support anythiong over 8bit color depth with linux driverrs05:44
nymacroi would be able to put another PCI graphics crad in it though, it uses standard PCI?05:45

rxiso you need either matrox or voodoo05:45

hermitHas anyone here been able to build ogle on Crux-2.2?12:22
