prologicHow would I run an X app on a remote box but display it here ?05:30
prologicssh -X root@leo /usr/bin/mythtv-setup <-- from my desktop ?05:31
co|workssh -X should have exported the display05:32
cptn_if_ the ssh server is configured that way05:32
co|workexport DISPLAY=IP:Xport05:32
prologicok hang on05:32
co|workthen you just have to allow connections from your Xserver locally05:32
prologicdoes leo's sshd need to be configured to allow X11 forwarding ?05:33
co|workecho $DISPLAY should have set the values05:33
cptnprologic: yes05:33
cptnprologic: #X11Forwarding no05:33
prologicone at a time :)05:33
cptnthat's the default05:33
prologicta cptn05:33
prologicDISPLAY (on my desktop) is :0.005:34
cptnyou don't need to fiddle with DISPLAY or xhost if you're using ssh05:34
prologick good05:34
prologicok this is weird, I already have X11Forwarding enabled on leo05:35
prologicWarning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.05:35
prologicXlib: connection to "localhost:10.0" refused by server05:35
prologicXlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key05:35
prologicmythtv-setup: cannot connect to X server localhost:10.005:35
co|workif you echo the DISPLAY variable05:36
cptnah, xauth05:36
prologicI thought it was as simple as this (obviously not)05:36
cptnprologic: are you ssh'ing with the same user who is logged in to X?05:37
prologicX isn't even running atm05:37
cptnso you're trying to run an X app without X?05:38
prologicseems silly huh :)05:38
* prologic walks downstairs05:38
cptnwell, it doesn't have to run on the server05:38
cptnbut on the client05:38
prologicwell I do have X running here obviously05:39
prologicdoesn't matter, I'll start X downstairs05:39
prologicit is a media box afterall, just tinkering with the remote the last few days05:40
prologicthink my ir reciever circuit is too simple for some remotes ;?05:40
cptnsony remote?05:41
prologicno hand built05:41
prologicbout 6 components05:41
prologicvery simple serial ir reciever05:41
co|worki did that yesterday ...05:43
cptnwell, it's probably just an rc5 decoder...05:44
cptnthe tsop's05:44
prologicI still can't get this app to display here but run on leo05:44
rxiprologic: building a htpc box?05:45
prologichtpc ?05:45
rxihome theatre pc05:45
prologicalready built, just fine-tuning a nice remote05:46
rxicool .. freevo or something else?05:46
prologicprolly need to get a better ir reciever05:46
prologicmythtv :)05:46
cptnprologic: there are two sides to the story:05:47
*** _ASK has joined #crux05:47
rxiahh  .. i was considering that .. also thought about using a tablet pc  and vnc into into the box wirelessly for use as a remote05:48
*** deus_ex has joined #crux05:48
prologicrxi: mpd+gnump3d+mythtv+mythweb and lirc+nice remote :)05:50
prologicalso 6.1 speakers and to top it off, a projector05:50
rxinice .. ive only got a crappy sony 66cm widescreen crt tv05:51
prologicwe only have a crappy 34cm crt tv screen atm too05:51
prologicprojector to come :)05:51
rxinice .. im too poor for that atm :P05:51
cptnprologic: sorry, gotta go05:52
cptnprologic: ttyl05:52
rxibtw did you move to vic?05:52
prologicheh nps :)05:52
prologicme ?05:52
prologicno I'm still in brisbane05:52
co|workdid you solder the receiver or use an exisiting one ?05:56
co|worki am considering using crux for my epia experiment, too05:56
cptnprologic: the localhost:10.0 means that the ssh fake display is set up on the remote machine05:57
cptnand that it went through ssh05:57
prologicit was soldered together05:57
cptnbut you don't allow the user executing the ssh command to connect to your real X server05:57
co|workyep yu should have auth errors in your local logs05:57
prologicsomeone in #xorg said I might bave to xhost +leo /05:57
cptnI think more of xhost +localhost05:58
cptnsince ssh will move it from leo to localhost05:58
co|workxhost +05:58
co|workto make sure enable world05:58
prologicxhost +loclahost (here ?) or on leo ?05:58
cptnit's an Xauth issue though, which should be solvable05:58
prologicworks now :)05:58
prologicso simple huh!05:59
prologicxhost +localhost && ssh -X r2d2@leo /usr/bin/mythtv-setup05:59
prologicthanks for helping cptn :)06:00
cptnno problem :-)06:01
prologichmm wow06:01
prologicthink I locked up leo's sshd :)06:01

maroHan: why?09:59
maro(mksh > dash)09:59
*** _ASK has quit IRC10:01
Hanbecause dash is a minimal as possible hack, and mksh is as correct as possible.10:04
HanI ran into lots of trouble with dash while mksh works splendid10:04
prologicanyone know what mime type rvfb is ?10:07
prologicrmvb rather10:07
maroprologic: real media video broadcasting or something?10:07
prologicahh yeah10:08
prologicand I want to add it to /etc/gnump3d/mime.types10:08
maroHan: uhm, dash is just a linux port of the netbsd ash10:08
prologicx-realvideo-broadcasting do ?10:08
maroshit I'm good10:09
cptnaccording to the first hit for "rmvb mime-type"10:09
prologicta cptn :)10:09
Hanmaro, you really convinced me. I'll reinstall dash again.10:09
maroI'm not trying to convince you of anything, just asking why you think mksh is a better /bin/sh than dash10:11
marosince dash is pretty damn posix-y10:12
Hanmaro, do whatever like, but don't ask me for advise and then tell me I'm wrong.10:12
maroyou mean "don't ask for a rationale"10:14
HanI know what I mean.10:15
HanAnyway, don't bother me again about dash.  You obviously want to run into trouble.10:16
Hansuit yourself10:16

cptnexport PS1="\$ "10:49
prologicI can't type on any terminal :/10:49

cptnwithout any changes to that system?10:50
prologicI ran xscreensaver &10:50
prologicthen it started doing that to all my terminals :)10:50
prologicobviosuly other apps still work (just not xterm)10:51
prologicreally weird and I have no other terminals installed atm (I prefer xterm neways)10:51
prologiconly way to get it back to normal is to restart my x session10:52

Roomsteri had a weried event where if i run certain programs it'll make all my ascii text all mumbled up11:01
Roomsterex, looks like the old dos extended ascii chars thrown in random order with the keyboard map11:01
Roomsterand i exited xorg and even my bash prompy was garbled like that but i was able to type the shutdown command still, despite hardly able to read it11:02
Roomsteri dunno what causes it, but its strange11:03
Roomsterseems like a rot13 or some other ascii map transposistion11:03
*** DaViruz has quit IRC11:05
tilmanit's your x driver messing up the framebuffer11:06
tilmanor it's not switching to text mode correctly. or something like that.11:06
prologictilman, I believe I actually have the same problem and hardware as you regarding ctrl+alt+plus/minus not working to switch video modes under xorg11:08
prologicI have an ATI Radeon 9200 Pro here11:08

*** seekwill has joined #crux11:34
seekwillUsually when I run crontab -e, and exit, it says that the cronjobs have been updated. But it doesn't do that anymore. Is that normal?11:34
prologicI never noticed it say that before11:35
