cptnI have no /udev07:30
brointhemixrihjt, it's /dev07:30
cptnbut yeah, /dev is indeed07:30
brointhemixso i't ok then?07:31
brointhemixwith the permissions07:31
brointhemixthanks cptn07:32
cptnit doesn't look right to me07:32
cptnalthough it won't fail, users could potentially screw up their /dev07:32
cptnthey can only add dummy files there07:33
*** _ASK has joined #crux07:33
cptnwhich isn't exactly nice, but doesn't hurt much either07:33
*** lasso has joined #crux07:33
cptnbrointhemix: let's wait for jaeger to comment on that07:33
brointhemixi just noticed the thing07:34
mike_koops, same thing here07:34
brointhemixmike_k: you too have udev 096?07:35
cptnbrointhemix: are you sure it was different before the 096 update?07:35
mike_kudev 096-107:35
brointhemixi have coloured ls and it wasn't like that before07:35
brointhemixi mean i noticed it thanks to coloured ls07:36
cptnhow are those two related?07:36
cptnah, you mean the color changed07:37
brointhemixyea yea :)07:37
mike_kcptn:  I am on the way installing CRUX to one more machine, and I'll check /dev permissions before and after udev update07:38
brointhemixcould you check your /dev permissions cptn?07:38
cptnmike_k: good07:38
cptnbrointhemix: again?07:38
brointhemixmike_k: 2.2's /dev in't world readable07:38
brointhemixcptn: ;)07:39
brointhemixcptn: which udev you have?07:39
brointhemixand your perms aren't like mine07:39
brointhemixer.. ours07:39
cptnbrointhemix: they are07:40
cptn(the same)07:40
brointhemixweird thing07:41
brointhemixhmmm, when i come to think of it...07:41
cptnit's a tmpfs thing:07:41
cptn# ls -ld /mnt/07:42
cptndrwxr-xr-x 2 root root 48 Jul 17 14:37 /mnt/07:42
cptn# /bin/mount -n -t tmpfs tmpfs /mnt07:42
brointhemixi removed hoplug package yesterday evening and today i the morning i restarted my box07:42
cptn# ls -ld /mnt/07:42
cptndrwxrwxrwt 2 root root 40 Aug  9 14:43 /mnt/07:42
cptnso we might want to consider addint a mode= flag for that mount call07:42
brointhemixand only now i've noticed the change in /dev yet i often do ls /07:42
cptn(from start_udev)07:42
cptntesting now07:43

cptndrwxr-xr-x 8 root root 2580 Aug  9 13:50 /dev/07:45
cptnthere we go07:45
brointhemixwhat would you suggest then? leave it be or change it?07:46
cptnI'll tell jaeger once he shows up07:47
cptnand we'll then upgrade the udev port07:47

* nipuL jumps into the mirror debate11:17
tilmanlife's too short to waste more than 5 minutes on the goddamn mirror non-issue11:18
tilman1. Many crux users have the problem when downloading sources, it is11:19
tilmanendless discussion on irc. I11:19
cptnI haven't heard a single complaint since we've introduced the source checking11:20
nipuLi think crux should be rebranded as a "framework" rather than a distribution11:20
*** Romster has joined #crux11:20
cptntilman: but maybe he refers to another IRC channel11:20
tilmanthey got a russian channel on some rogue ukraine network, right?11:21
cptnthe funny thing is, _we_ list a pkgutils port in portdb which does this11:21
cptnso the feature is just a pkgmk -u away11:21
aontilman: what if it's a ukrainian channel? :)11:22
tilmansame same11:22
* treach notes that crux is a ".NET Distribution" :)11:28
jaegerHan: noted11:35
guaquawhat does udevd actually do? :)11:36
Hanread the manpage11:37
Hanrather important to start it at boottime I'd say.11:38
jaegerit does get started at boot time, just not by an rc script at the moment11:39
*** brointhemix has quit IRC11:39
*** _ASK has joined #crux11:39
treachhmm "The old hotplug helper /sbin/hotplug should be disabled on bootup," - that doesn't sound like "hotplug isn't needed anymore."11:41
*** brointhemix has joined #crux11:41
treachit sounds like "you shouldn't use hotplug anymore".11:41
treachOr am I misunderstanding?11:41
Hanhotplug loads modules IIRC, udevd creates devices.11:42
*** Brzi has quit IRC11:42
HanBut since I got a static kernel it's really not necessary to run hotplug11:42
brointhemixwhat's the meaning o IIRC?11:43
treachIntensive IRC.11:43
tilmanignorant IRC11:43
treachah, right.11:43
brointhemixwhat does it refer to? a person? a thing?11:43
treachgoogle, without doubt.11:44
Hanbrointhemix, seen that docu I pasted?11:45
tilmanbrointhemix: IIRC means "if i remember correctly"11:45
brointhemixHan: no11:45
cptntreach: udev handles module loading for usb and pci hotplug events11:45
brointhemixthanx tilman11:45
HanToo afraid to be called nut? ;-)11:45
brointhemixi had problems to get working11:45
brointhemixmy connection is veery busy atm :)11:45
cptntreach: so with recent kernel versions (> 2.6.14), hotplug is optional11:45
brointhemixHan: me? no. i hear it all the time ;P11:46
treachok, I can see a third interpretation. :)11:46
HanAh right, you can download the file as well from the same location.11:46
cptntreach: you can control the hotplug handler via /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug11:46
cptntreach: contains the details :-)11:47
treachok, I'll have a look at that. :)11:47

bd2"<cptn> the funny thing is, _we_ list a pkgutils port in portdb which does this", yep I know it. I'm really waiting for public wiki, to write something like "hacks around crux", maybe that way users who need depots will use it without asking at mailinglist.13:04

cptnbd2: why is this a "hack around crux"?16:24
cptnbd2: it's installing one other port16:24
cptnbd2: how much can you expect from a distro with crux' target audience?16:24
cptnit's rather that crux easily offers this functionality16:24
cptnit's there, no one's keeping your from doing it, so why don't you just enjoy it?16:25
marore the graphics discussion we had last night: :)16:27
cptntoo bad they're not making agp/pcie cards...16:28
maroif that means I'll have to get a intel cpu/mobo as well, then be it16:28
maromy next box is probably going to be a laptop anyway16:28
marowe sold 6 hp laptops for $800 each last week, hard to resist :)16:29
marothey went in 5 minutes16:30
maropeople were standing outside the store when we opened ;)16:30
cptnI had an HP once16:31
cptnunfortunately, its components were rather weakly supported under linux16:31
cptnplus it was a p4m model, noisy as hell16:32
marothese babies were intel16:32
maro(p-m and graphics)16:32
maroand the nic obviously16:32
marocptn: yeah, those suck :)16:33
