Romstertorrent isn't even downloading O_o06:38
HanRomster, heh, yes06:42
Romsterwell is now but mighty slow, and i already gotit from another site.06:47
Handuh... I should build ports with my sleepy head! =)07:06
bd2Han, hey. What is your prefered ftp client? I guess it's yafc, or your are only maintaining it?07:09

hackedheadrxi_: prt-get info feh08:10
nipuLi took them with my camera phone08:11
rxi_hackedhead: ta08:11
hackedhead=] feh + == happy root window08:13
_mavrick61Hi all... I'm back from my lon vacation..08:35
nipuLyou were gone?08:38
maromike_k: I don't use kde :/09:35
marothanks for the thumbs up though :)09:35
marobd2: try contrib/tnftp09:36
maroit's ftp with tab-completion but without the bloat ;)09:36
maroit's netbsd's ftp, formerly known as lukemftp09:37
Hanyafc is even smaller =)09:39
bd2maro, thanks, will try. Indeed, I'm searching less bloated ftp client than lftp. Yafc seems good09:39
qidhackedhead: eh, that site sucks for themes, try or deviantart09:42
hackedheadthemes, yes, wallpapers no09:42
marotnftp doesn't need a config ;-)09:42
hackedheadno one writes themes for my wm anyway =P09:43
Hantnftp can't be customized?09:44
qid861 wallpapers vs. custo's 10707, I think custo wins09:44
maroHan: it can use .netrc, but that's about it09:44
bd2Han, yep, thanks. I'm made similar config by yafc -D :-)09:45
mike_kmaro: me neither, I thought you loved it09:45
Hanbd2, that's what mine comes from, but I made a lot of changes.09:46
bd2the only problem I have with yafc is that it do not try to login anonymously by default. I'm solved that by alias yafc="yafc -a", though09:47
hackedheadqid: on quantity, sure,a dn devart dwarfs both no doubt, but i find i like the ones on interfacelift more, i dont have the hunt through the chaff as much... suit yourself09:48
Hanbd2, there is a config option for that.09:48
bd2Han, which one? I have autologin on09:49
HanI though autologin indeed, anyway it doesn't request a pass when I login to which is not in my bookmarks.09:51
cptn# set password used for anonymous logins09:52
cptnanon_password ""09:52
cptnmaybe because of that?09:52
bd2that is strange. I'm testing on ftp.gnu.org09:52
bd2I have uncommented09:52
HanYeah I get anonymous login automatically at ftp.gnu.org09:52
bd2ah.. great, thanks!09:54
Hangoogle rocks ;-)09:54
bd2I just don't wanted to bother google, because of minor problem :-))09:55
Hanfinaly I got rid of that stupid buzzing fly!09:55
mike_kHan: tasty one?09:56

hackedheadmeh. it'll bother me more when there's solid proof for macro-evolution16:02

Plazmaanyone here?20:40
Plazmabasically im an intermediat linux user.. been testing many distrso off an on for years.. found a few i liked, but also like getting other users opinions.. and i was wonder why any of you all chose crux as your main distro? If your going to respond preferable more than one reason, but doesn't have to be a fillabuster either20:53
Plazmai have used crux and i do enjoy it.. just curious as to why others enjoy it20:53
blizzit's frickin simple as hell20:53
Plazmablizz , i agree, being a fan of BSD's ports system, i like the fact it doesn't go out of its way to make a specialized "binary" type package.. it uses ap ackage system, but their the same packages everyone knows and loves/hates20:54
blizzwe got really lots of ports right now. and nice new rsync repos. very fast now20:55
Plazmarsync is great20:55
Plazmai was a fan of gentoo because of portage, but i dont like waiting for a day for my full system to be ready to use20:55
blizzlol. well you can do the same with crux, altough the base ports arent as much as a default gentoo system20:56
Plazmayea.. i am not much for ubuntu or debian .deb's20:57
Plazmathough ill admit their the onlye binary based packages in linux that don't have too much dependeancy hell20:57
Plazmai used to use slackware for a year or better.. i loved the speed myself, lacked package management at the time.. now has slapt-get but i hear its not the best20:58
blizzyeah. prt-get pretty much rocks the house. :-P20:58
Plazmaill drink to that one20:58
Plazmai do like the fact the init scripts are standard and simple20:59
Plazmaand the whole distro is "bsd" style to the point one may think it is BSD21:00
Plazmawhich if i werent a gamer or a linux gamer i would be on BSD in a heartbeat but21:00
Plazmalinux has much better gaming support21:00
blizzwell, crux made me think twice21:00
blizzi would choose netbsd, but it's *rather* complex21:00
blizzi think i will be a linux fanboy for ever. ;-)21:01
Plazmanetbsd is nice to tniker with.. openbsd is great for routers..21:01
Plazmafreebsd is good for workstations and servers21:01
Plazmahell their all good21:01
Plazmacept mandriva21:01
Plazmaand red hack21:01
Hanopinions are boring21:01
Plazmaim feeling inquisitve today i guess21:02
Plazmamaybe its the beer talking21:03
prologicCRUX website a bit slow ?21:04
prologicoh wait21:05
prologic <-- not working :/21:05
Plazmablizz , i thank you much for your opinion21:07
blizznevermind, it's boring anyway *scnr*21:07
*** nymacro has joined #crux21:07
blizznevermind ;-)21:09
Plazmawell anyway blizz i thank ye21:09
Plazmaill buy you a virtual beer and email it to you21:09
prologichmm I love being ignored :)21:10
prologichi blizz, Plazma21:10
blizzsorry prologic :-)21:10
Plazmahey prologic21:10
Plazmaprologic , read wht i posted above, give me your insight.. itll keep ya from being bored21:10
blizzhum, works fine for me. isnt the server out of order for a long time by now?21:10
prologicPlazma, I've since cleared my screen, wasn't following :/21:11
prologicsummary ? :)21:11
prologicblizz, perhaps so, but the logos, art and anything else on it would need to be moved over21:11
prologicI was trying to show my flatemate some of the other logos21:11
Plazmaprologic , long story short, why do you like crux as your main distro? more than one reason, but not a big fillabuster21:11
prologicbecause it's simple and easy to use and very flexible. Getting under the hood isn't a steep learning curve unlike many other complex distros.21:12
prologicAlso is does everything I need (including desktop env, and servers)21:12
Plazmaprologic , yea i agree.. blizz and i had a great convo about ports21:13
prologicoh ic21:13
prologicwell I love the ports system :)21:13
Plazmaprologic , i love bsd and so forth.. but it lacks a lot of features for gaming etc.. which linux now has21:13
Plazmaoh yea.. me too21:13
Plazmai was a gentoo guy souly because of portage, but waiting a day for my systme to be ready is annoying21:13
Plazmathen to find your install failed and you have to start all over again21:14
prologicI usually get desktop systems up in under 15mins21:14
Plazmaheh.. i like the init scripts at startup.. i can just edit it to suit my needs and its like magic21:14
Plazmait pay sto know some bash i guess21:14
blizzare they bin/sh by now in default 2.2?21:15
Plazmathats right.. sh21:15
Plazmakorn shell baby w00t21:15
blizzi think i remember a sh replacement for init scripts in your repository21:15
Hanthats not a korn shell derative21:16
Plazmaany of you guys do any gaming on crux?21:16
Hana survey?21:16
blizzmost likely21:16
blizzyes, i do. and there are lot's of game ports ;-)21:16
Plazmablizz , games like ut2k4?21:17
* Plazma would love to do some q3 linux21:17
blizzPlazma, exactly that game21:17
blizzbut NO port for that one21:17
Plazmahehe i wonder why21:17
Plazmaso how does it run? it ran great on other distros ive tried21:17
prologicyeah I do gaminig21:17
Plazmamy current video card blows.. i need a nice nvidia agp card21:17
prologicbut not heavy high-end games21:17
blizzi think it doesnt matter which distro you have when it comes to specific tasks like gaming21:18
Plazmaanyone got any to sell21:18
Plazmablizz , yea thats true..21:18
prologicnope :)21:18
Plazmai overcompliate everything all the time21:18
prologicunless you wanna buy copies of freely available oss games :)21:18
blizzit's usually a binary vendor driver + maybe custom libsdl ;-)21:18
Plazmanot games.. video cards21:18
Plazmaneed a nvidia agp card.. 5200 or above21:18
prologichmm I have an ATI Rage 128M here21:19
prologicoh don't have any of those21:19
Plazmai have a 9200se.. i dislike ati21:19
Plazmai had a 9800 pro.. but i think the fan died21:20
Plazmaso it artifacted terribly21:20
Plazmathough was interesting in bf1942 i was able to see through walls due to glitches in the card21:20
blizzi had a 6600gt, but cracked the gpu21:20
blizzwhile installing an.. incompatible.. cooler21:20
Plazmahow on earth did you do that21:20
Plazmai was going to bid on a 6600 gt.. but i lost21:21
Plazmai eventually want to build a new system.. intel core 2 duo system or an opteron venus system21:21
blizz6600gt sucks. design flaw.21:21
blizzwth is opteron venus?21:22
Plazma144 i think21:22
Plazmamaybe 14621:22
Plazmaget that with an asus delux 939 board21:22
blizzjust another stupid codename.21:22
blizzasus boards suck. i prefer DFI by now21:22
Plazmaim not a big DFI fan.. i prefer ABIT21:22
blizzcheap, nforce 4 ultra chipset (im also an nvidia fanboy!)21:22
Plazmayea.. im nvidia all the way21:22
blizzthe worst board i ever had was MSI21:22
PlazmaMSI used to be good.. til they sold their soul to hp21:23
Plazmamost HP's/compaq's ive worked on at the shop have had msi boards21:23
Plazmaive had great luck with asus and abit21:23
Plazmawell its past my beditme.. i gotta work tomorrow at hell21:24
