Romstergood evening.04:56
otari got an error building kdebase05:34
cptncan you upload the error somewhere?05:35
otaris there a log file i can check?05:38
cptnprobably not if you ask this way05:39
cptndid you use prt-get or pkgmk?05:39
cptnif you use pkgmk, just run 'pkgmk  &> log'05:40
cptnprt-get has a --log option05:41
pitilloummm a build can be setup to put a log file in /var/log/pkgbuild by changing /etc/prt-get.conf (think it is a lot usefull but not sure if in this case, didn?t give a try to kde)05:42
cptnyou don't have to change anything in prt-get.conf unless you want to log everything05:42
cptnthe --log switch will enable it05:43
otarthen i dont have the log file cause i didnt change05:43
pitillolike cptn said, it isn?t needed by default. Check the log option and sorry if I confuse with my answer.05:44
cptnotar: you can always just run the command again, appending --log05:45
cptnor you can just copy the error message from the terminal05:45
otarok i will try again05:47
pitillocptn, did you read the answer about maintain a port? where can I know how to do it, the mechanism used or some info related... Sorry for repeat it again.05:50
cptnpitillo: I have to admit I don't really understand, but it's basically the following:05:51
cptn1. pick up a port05:51
cptn2. put it in a repository05:51
cptn3. check for updates from upstream, update the port, test it, and upload it to the repository05:51
cptnthat's about it05:51
pitilloummm understood it. But what is the mechanism to sync them? Is the .sync file located at maintained ports?05:52
cptnwell, that's contrib specific05:52
pitilloI mean, if it?s in contrib for example, use this mechanism?05:52
cptnusually, you don't need those05:53
pitilloonly for contrib? core for example, you need to sync all when updates appears05:53
cptnfor contrib, the maintainer places them in his repo05:53
cptncore is maintained in subversion05:54
cptnso whatever a maintainer commits is exported via the ports tree05:54
pitilloummm nice... another method then. Need to read about them.05:54
Romsterhow can i add + into a sed i tryed to escape it with \+ but that dosn't work either.05:55
pitillowhat a nice job... yes , I was reading this morning a bit05:55
cptnnote that only crux developers can commit05:55
pitillosure. But only want to know how are you working. :) And didnt understand or was confusing some terms. Thanks :)05:56
cptnactually, there is a sync step05:57
cptnsince subversion is synced to rsync every five minutes05:57
cptnsince rsync is a lot faster05:57
cptnRomster: you should really start to try a bit harder05:57
Romsteri think i got a grasp on the simpler regulaer expressions, but the + char is like anoying i can't escape it like with other chars.05:59
cptnecho "+"|sed -e 's|+|Karma--|g'05:59
Romsterpattern contains regex metacharacters (such as '*' or perhaps '+' or '?'), remember to quote them with backslashes. < and i tryed that.06:01
Romstersed -e 's|\([a-zA-z0-9_-\+]*\).*|\1|g'06:02
Romsterdamn thing thats it i'm looking up a tutorial. i'm oviously missing something06:04
Romsterman pages arn't helping06:05
cptndo you get an error if you run my command from above?06:05
cptnand if no, does it replace the '+' character?06:06
Romsterno it dosn't even alter the 'Karma--' string.06:09
Romsteroh it does it replaces + with that06:09
Romsterok i had some sucess doing [a-zA-Z0-9_-]*[+]* but it dosn't catch it al now.06:10
Romsteri don't get it inside [] metachars loose thre specal meaning..06:10
Romsterif i put the + in the first [] set it complains06:11
Romsterah fixed it i put it as [+a-zA-Z0-9_-]06:11
Romstersomehow it must of been trying to match it as a range.06:12
RomsterOne of them gotcha's i just learned about.06:13
Romstersorry for wasting ya time..06:13
Romsteroh i should of realised that \ also loses its meaning in squrare brackets too *slaps myself*06:15
Romsteri have alot to learn :/06:15

cptnyeah, sounds good09:19
jjpkEnrico is back in action on the mailinglists.09:29
aoni wonder if gmail blocked it :O09:30
jjpkNo, this is on crux-devel.09:30
aonah, ok09:30
jjpkAlthough with that kind of signature used, I would not be surprised if it were blocked.09:31
aonhehe :)09:31
jjpkSubtle does not belong in his vocabulary. ;)09:33
cptnthat's an interesting contribution from him :-)09:36
treachhmm, a tinyurl candidate? :p09:37
treachthanks. :)09:37
treachyay, ronny in disguise? :P09:38
jjpkProbably not, but probably from the same tree.09:38
mike_kcptn: I wonder what is the crux way... In case of package which requires so-called drivers (lirc, network ups tools) if contrib port should have them all enabled or only one of them?09:39
treachComforting isn't it? As long as there is an Internet, there will always be a twit on a ML near you.09:40
treachOh, wait, it isn't...09:40
jjpkDepends how you see the situation. Perfect candidate to start a flame war with, but that is not very "cruxy". ;)09:41
*** Brzi has joined #crux09:41
jjpkIt has been a few months since the last post by Ronny.09:43

treachhehe, hopefully he lost interest. :-)09:45
jjpkaon: :D09:45
jjpktypos ftw! <309:46
cptnmike_k: good question09:46
cptnmike_k: in case of lirc, it seems best (to me) to have all enabled, also in the footprint09:47
cptnmike_k: but to allow everrid09:47
cptnoverriding it like in alsa-driver09:47
aonjjpk: but that could be some new degree to meet the demand of the dynamic web industry, "doctorate of PHP"09:47
treach"PHPd, hacking away at a server near you." :-)09:48
aon"You have been PHP'd"09:48
mike_kcptn: ok, I've used such triks, but sounds to gentooish (although I never used it)09:49
cptnyeah, I agree09:49
cptnit's better than building just one specific driver though09:50
jjpkaon: hehe, you might as well contact a few universities about that then. ;)09:50
otarcptn >>> (complete log)09:52
cptnotar: that's a simple footprint missmatch...09:52
cptnit means that in the package (which was created just fine), there are four additional files09:53
otarbut i can`t start kde09:53
cptnit didn't _install_ the package09:53
jjpkThe package is not installed otar.09:53
otar=======> ERROR: Building '/usr/ports/opt/kdebase/kdebase#3.5.3-1.pkg.tar.gz' failed09:53
cptnthere are two ways to install it:09:53
jjpkpkgadd it manually.09:53
cptnpkgadd /usr/ports/opt/kdebase/kdebase#3.5.3-1.pkg.tar.gz09:53
cptnor prt-get install kdebase -uf09:54
otarbut what does that error mean? and why wasn`t the package installed?09:54
cptn[16:53] <cptn> it means that in the package (which was created just fine),  there are four additional files09:54
treachMh, maybe that errormessage should be changed. The buildprocess didn't *fail* exactly, it just didn't provide the expected results..09:55
cptnevery port has a .foootprint file09:55
cptnerr, .footprint09:55
cptnwhich is the expected build result09:55
cptnif you have additional dependencies the packager didn't have installed while building, you sometimes have more files09:55
cptnor less09:55
cptnin your case kdebase was probably build without openldap being installed09:56
cptnto pkgmk (via prt-get) tells you that there's been a missmatch09:56
otarhumm i see09:56
cptnand you can then decide whether it's a harmless missmatch09:56
cptnor not09:56
cptnin general, if there are only "NEW" files, it's usually harmless09:56
otarso, when this happens the tar.gz is not installed?09:58
cptnit was build09:58
cptnbut not installed09:58
*** Romster has quit IRC09:59
cptnyou can disable them globally in pkgmk.conf, or per command using -if switches09:59
cptnbut it's not recommended, since it hides information09:59
otarwell i was mislead but that message (build failled)10:00
otarby that message10:00
otarok i ve installed it manually but now i get an error with starkde10:01
* treach gets crystal ball.10:02

otarkpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server10:02
cptndid you configure X?10:02
otari tried with xorgconfig but with no sucess10:03
otarstartx blackbox works...10:03
cptnthat's a sign ;-)10:03
otarhow do i configure ?10:03
treachX -configure10:04
treachedit the config file to match your keyboard etc.10:04
otarok, but why doesn`t xorgconfig work?10:04
treach*shrugs* I dunno, I didn't write it and I don't use it..10:05
cptnI thought we didn't even include xorgconfig...10:05
cptnoh yes, we did10:05
cptndon't you have to add startkde to .xinitrc10:06
otari configured it but after i did startx the x was broken so i had to remove xorg.conf10:06
cptnand run startx?10:06
cptnI don't know a lot about KDE anymore10:06
otaralready did that10:06
cptn"exec startkde" probably10:06
otarX -configure resulted in black screen10:06
treachGraphics adapter not supported?10:07
cptnwell, blackbox apparently works10:07
treachthat doesn't add up.10:08
otari am running it with vmware dont even now the graphics adapter it uses or not10:09
*** mike_k has quit IRC10:09
treachvmware uses it's own drivers iirc.10:09
otarblackbox does not work anymore10:09
otari now it does10:10
treach"Now you see me, and now you don't." <- afk10:10
otaryes :D10:10
otari will try with my hard drive install..10:12
otarthat X -configure tip is nice10:12
otari thought crux had no such thing10:12
pitillootar, take a look to the configuration file and try to understand the differents sections in it and review the servers logs to find problems.10:18
otarwhat file is that, since it isn`t xorg.conf (or at least i haven`t found it10:19
pitillootar, /etc/X11/xorg.conf10:20

otar/dev/input/mice it is --- thanks vektori11:45
otari have always used /dev/mouse but it is different with crux11:45
treachno it isn't11:46
otarit is because is doesn`t work11:46
treachit's all about how *you* set stuff up, as oposed to how some distibuton maintainer does.11:46
otarif i setup xorg with /dev/mouse it wont work11:47
treachyes? And whos fault is that?11:47
treachA) Crux B) vektori or C) You own.11:48
treachs You/your11:48
otarwhat i meant is that i normally setup xorg with /dev/mouse and it works11:48
cptndefine normally11:48
cptnit's a normal udev we run11:48
treachyes. And that *still* doesn't have anything with crux to do.11:48

* treach looks around for gnomes in the system15:13
tilmanlordalbert: -> documentation -> gnome guide15:13
treachsry, can't find any.15:13
lordalbertin distrowatch i saw that there isn't gnome... :(15:14
treachheard of ubuntu? I recon there are lots of gnome in it.15:14
tilmantreach: don't mock him just because his enlish sucks15:15
treachtilman: you're misunderstanding.15:15
tilmanorly? :D15:15
treachAt least I wasn't trying. :D15:16
treachI just don't really get the point with putting gnome on crux.. jaeger's excuse is that he just can't help himself I guess, but for the rest of the punters.. Why bother when ubuntu is actually making a much better job of it?15:24
tilmanare you saying the same about kde and, say, suse?15:26
treachnot really..15:26
tilmans/saying/thinking/ perhaps15:26
tilmanwhy not?15:26
treachSUSE is a buch of bloat.15:26
treachit doesn't compare to ubuntu.15:26
treachs buch/bunch15:27
tilmanmmh. okay.15:27
tilmandidn't have a close look at ubuntu yet (and prolly won't ;D)15:27
cptnI have to admit I fail to see a relation between crux with gnome and ubuntu15:28
jjpkToo much of an adjustment because it does too much on your behalf.15:28
cptnthose are completely different systems15:28
treachvektori:  mmh, that's more like it, but kubuntu has some customizations and it also doesn't have nearly as much polish as the other distros15:28
jjpkEspecially when you are accustomed to crux.15:28
vektoritreach: Oh, okay. I'm not very familiar with it.15:28
treachcptn: the relation is as follows...15:28
j^2sooo tired15:29
treachcptn: If you set up a gnome system, I'd say it's fair game to assume you are interested in a system that is as integrated and polished as possible, right?15:29
cptnbut if you wanted, ubuntu would certainly be better suited15:30
treachok. If you feel like that way, I can't help you. :)15:30
treachif you don't want polish and integration, wtf would you want an DE?15:30
treachIntegration is kind of the POINT with it..15:31
cptnyeah, agreed15:31
cptnbut you get that on crux as well, right?15:31
treachwith gnome?15:31
cptnyeah, or KDE15:31
cptnwell, I guess there's no need to reach an agreement here anyway :-)15:32
treachHonestly, matt is doing a great job, but he can't possibly get things as smooth as the bigger distros do.15:32
cptnI don't think that someone who want gnome necessarily wants ubuntu's init, packages in general, or custimizations beyond upstream15:32
cptnso it's a compromise either way15:32
treachwell, there is always debian then. :p15:32
treachbut IMO, it's probably easier to clean up ubuntu/debian than it is to put enough shine on gnome to approach the bigger distros.15:34
cptnit'll be very hard to replace dpkg15:35
cptnwell, I haven't tried...15:35
treachheh, I said "clean up" not "make a cardial transplant". :p15:35

Hanln -sv ../../lib/ $PKG/usr/lib/blah.so22:18
HanThough I don't see the point. /lib is in the librarypath22:20
MukundaHan: that was the first thing I tried, didn't work, my friend said something about cd'ing deeping in to the package to make the link relative or something....22:21
MukundaJust checking his scripts, he said he had one that did it.22:22
HanYou should try to understand what is really happening, instead of C&P'ing a workaround.22:22
Hanread man ldconfig22:22
MukundaOkay, thanks.22:24
