raywtfthat may be screwing me00:35
rxiprobably the only place you will get cruxppc related answers00:35
raywtfwhen i partition00:35
raywtfand i use one of my drives00:36
j^2rxi: that forum is ok...but not 100%00:36
raywtfit doesnt automatically assign the main partition as "/"00:36
raywtfit just says00:36
raywtf"dont use this partition"00:36
raywtfthats... wrong.. isnt it ?00:36
rxij^2: yeah but better than what you;d get from here :)00:36
raywtfperphaps debianppc or ppclinux00:36
raywtfbut no one's in those chans00:37
j^2dont use this partition?00:37
raywtfone sec00:37
raywtfi'm in it now00:37
raywtfi have freaking 4 macs in this room00:37
raywtfall from different generations00:37
rxiraywtf: you are trying to install cruxppc right?00:38
raywtfdebian actually00:38
raywtfbut that's not my problem00:38
rxiwell i dont see how we could help you00:39
raywtfcause it's a bootloader problem00:40
raywtfi figured it'd be general00:40
raywtfand the site on the bootloader told me to come here00:40
j^2openfirmware is evil00:40
raywtfyea, rather, damn cat00:41
raywtfi dunno00:41
raywtfit's better than BIOS00:41
raywtfcorrection tho, BROKEN openfirmware, like on the oldworld powermacs is evil00:41
raywtfthe newer versions are much more flexible than BIOS00:42
raywtfthat's why everyone's moving over to EFI eventually00:42
raywtfEFI will basically be like an evolution of BIOS and openfirmware00:42
raywtffrom what i understand00:42
j^2sorry man, i wish i'd could help you more, but when ever i've installed debian on a ppc, (a couple times) it's always hand held me the whole way00:43
j^2never really had to debug it00:43
raywtflucky basterd00:44
raywtfthats part of the reason i was using debain ironically00:44
j^2try ubuntu00:46
j^2or redhat00:46
j^2or hell, *bsd00:46
raywtfit's the damn bootloader00:46

clarehi folks, where can I find out about USB audio - thinking about speakers for laptop (Logitech V20, need drivers?)01:45 doesnt have any info on them?01:46
claredidn't think to try that, tried kernel drivers. but I did read that :Standard USB audio driver should work, but couldn;t find that.01:47
rxiahh .. would probably help if you could find the chipset01:49
Hanugh usb audio01:53
HanI tried it, and it's too easy to fail under load01:54
rxiits a good idea in theory tho01:54
clarerxi;  realtekALC202, with standard intel AC'97, also I have now found that xmms has a lugin to convert output to S/PDIF.01:54
clareI started thinking to try to get an S/PDIF speaker because I have that as an output from the sound sytem. But on furhther looking01:55
clarenot only is it hard to get any sort of speaker for that except big boxes with "BASS", but the doc on the chip seems to say the frequency reponse01:56
clareis not as good as ordinary analog. Its main purpose seems to be to simplify the connections for a home theatre.01:57
HanI tried improving my sound-setup and ended up with sticking with my old emu10k1 card01:57
clarethe usb has the advantage that no extra power supply is needed - more portable.01:57
rxiprobably just as easy to go with some good unpowered philips01:58
clareHan; thanks, but this is a laptop, and a mini at that.01:58
clarerxi: can the laptop drive an unpowered speaker? THat never occurred to me.01:59
HanI'd use a second system for the audio then.01:59
rxiclare: yeah .. they arent really loud tho01:59
clarehan; You are making a lot of sense. I could easily set up another machine and buy it a good soundcard.02:00
claremy collection of boxes all have very bad onboard sound.02:00
rxiholy shit thats a long url sorry02:00
HanNow try get your hands on a emu10k1 card. :-\02:01
rxiHan: plenty of audigy 2's out there for next to nothing02:01
clarerxi; yes :) I  tried it but it only went as far ias Consumer products selelct your language. I will go after what I think it is saying.02:04
rxithere last model range was like $7002:05
clarerxi: it then went to a cute pair of sort of half balls about 50 mm diameter, 8 ohm; I will see if that will match.02:06
rxiyeah thats the one i tried to link to02:06
mike_kanyone saw segfolting "strip --strip-debug some.a" ?02:12
clareI find that the realtek ALC202 can drive 8 ohm with 60 mW,  It is *many* years since I knew what RMS power ratings mean.02:12
clareHan; thanks I will probably do that anyway, but keep looking for something a bit more portable. I use this laptop a lot.02:14
Hansure, just brainstorming along02:14
