pitillohi good morning, tilman here I put the Xconf file and Xlog, Do not know what am I missing or what did bad. I think it is not fontpàth configuration but may be I am in error. Hope you can see something bad.02:14
pitilloI have problems updating contrib ports, anyone experience the same?02:24

slakmagikROX-Filer exposes the help directory and manual through its interface, but those files are deleted, which results in a broken button. It can be removed from the bar, but I still consider that a bug in the Pkgfile even if I didn't consider the whole doc policy a bug.05:01
slakmagikand, incidentally, what's the rationale for /usr/ROX? I usually just stick it in /usr/lib like mozilla, with the launcher in /usr/bin. Well, /usr/local/{lib,bin}, but y'know.05:04
*** copworker has quit IRC05:14
pitillonot sure about this, but considering the doc policy a bug is to consider the keep minimal policy of CRUX a bug. About locar dir... /usr is used, no local. May be can be used /usr/share, but not /usr/local...05:21
slakmagikI know that. My point was that /usr/ROX makes no sense and that /usr/lib would be better. I was only clarifying that, on other systems, I use /usr/local.05:23
pitilloumm thinking in /usr/lib to use with libs. Why not /usr/share/rox instead?05:24
slakmagikAs far as the 'minimal' policy - chopping out a few K of vim README.txt's doesn't make my system feel much lighter, but I've had that argument with the Arch people and I don't want to have it again.05:24
slakmagikBecause it's not platform-independent.05:24
slakmagikROX contains binaries, iow.05:24
slakmagikAlso, the generated shell scripts use CHOICESPATH which is deprecated in favor of XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and all the XDG* vars.05:25
prologicQ: What would cause the /dev/input/mouse0 device not to show up anymore ?06:08
rxidevice isnt being detected?06:10
prologicreally weird06:27

rugekHan: is there any reason why you use a space instead of a comma as separator in the 'depends on' listing in some of your ports?10:03
*** richi_aut has left #crux10:41
Hanyes, it's easier to parse by shell-scripts.11:02
Hanrugek, a nicer way to ask the same question is to say `why do you prefer...'11:03
rugekHan: thanks, for advise11:04
rugekaccording to this guide comma is prefered11:06
HanI don't see where it is mentioned specifically, just that the example uses commas11:08
Hans/, either / either/11:09
Hansed -i '/# Depends on:/s|,||' $(grep -l 'Depends on:.*,' */Pkgfile )11:11
Hansed -i '/# Depends on:/s|,||g' $(grep -l 'Depends on:.*,' */Pkgfile )11:11

tilmancan you post it again?11:25
tilmandidn't see it11:25
pitillosure, there are 2 files, Xconf and Xlog11:25
tilmanFontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc"11:26
pitillotilman, did it, and the same effects, can not load that fonts too. running the postinstall script under that directory too.11:27
pitillotomorrow I will add it and try again to verify that.11:28
pitillotilman, thanks for your help. :)11:28
tilmanbut you have xorg-font-misc-misc, right?11:29
pitilloyes, and verified the installation of alias too.11:31
pitilloand added the bitstream75dpi (to test it) and works too11:31
pitillobut, no way when trying to load the fixed fonts. Reread the aliases, the post-isntall scripts, and can not find nothing. Sure I'm missing something11:32

Romsterjust thinking tilman, your dma problem for cd/dvd burners, in your kernel do you have "Enable DMA only for disks (IDEDMA_ONLYDISK)" on? if so you'd be wise to turn that off :P12:19
Auge^hehe. i made that mistake in my current config =)12:19
tilmanRyoS: let me check :)12:20
tilman# CONFIG_IDEDMA_ONLYDISK is not set12:20
RyoSyou meant Romster :p12:24
tilmanRomster: ^^^^^^12:24

Romsteroh well, i'll try it out later.12:30
Romsteryeah i know tilman i'm very suprised too.12:31
Romsteri got a geforce 4 video card so i tryed the nvidiafb driver and apon really going thopugh the kernel finely, i see thats for tnt or newer cards _only_12:32
Romsterthe one i want is just under that...12:32
Romsterbeen lazy to go though the kernel proper, disabled alot of scsi stuff i don't need too.12:33
Romsteri'll see later if i borked anything :P12:34
Romsterluckly i got my older kernal images if i need them :P12:34
Romsterhmm whats ya fav window manager i want to try some others out :)12:35
tilmanwon't tell12:35
tilmantreach might be reading this later12:36
Romsternevermind trench :P12:36
Romsternot that rdate bug thing O_o12:36
Romstererm treach, not trench, rofl12:37
Romsterhmm must get some crux logo coffee mugs one of these days :P12:38
* Romster makes a coffee12:38
jjpkMake that a double espresso with spellcheck ;)12:45
Romsterlol, yeah half is crappy typing other 2 quarters is lazy to look a word up, and don't know the corect spelling, so i try to spell it phenoitcly , like that lol.12:49
Romsterjjpk, least ya didn't say 'java' :P12:49
tilmanjjpk: hahaha13:19
tilmanjjpk: new amon amarth!13:20
*** treach has joined #crux13:30
tilmantreach: new amon amarth!13:30
treach"who's afraid of the big bad wolf, big bad wolf, big bad wolf? di-da-di-da!" :p13:31
* tilman thinks around corners to try to get it13:32
treachhm, not really our standard musical viking issue. :p13:32
tilmani didn't know you knew them13:33
tilmanjust told you cause jjpk wouldn't answer13:33
treachI didn't. but google did. :D13:33
tilmancause he's lame13:33
tilmantreach: - is there any reason to omit the apostrophe from "loke's"? track 413:35
tilmanthey have this typo everywhere, and it's annoying me :]13:35
treachmaybe it's because they are musicians, not linguists. :>13:36
tilmanit doesn't seem to make sense, right?13:36
treachwell, I think it does, in a way.13:37
treachiirc you don't use the apostrophe that way in swedish.13:37
tilmanit's the same grammatical figure for Hermod and Loke, no?13:38
tilmanwhy would they go with the correct english way for the first, and with (whacko) swedish for the 2nd?13:38
treachNo idea, honestly, I never was much into the nordic mythologi13:38
treachbut that "genitive s" is pretty confusing, so maybe the poor person who wrote it got neurotic and couldn't make up his mind. :D13:39
tilmani'm tempted to just go ahead and fix it in musicbrainz13:41
tilmanbut some idiot will probably revert the change etc :(13:41
treachmm. the tribe of idiots is large and powerful. :-/13:41
tilmanmaybe i should mail their label13:43
tilmanbut they are probably going to not take me serious ;)13:43
treach"Hello, I got these mp3's of the Internet, and I'm seriously distrubed by the grammatical inconsistencies."13:44
tilmani bought it13:44
treachI was just kidding. :P13:45
treachI bet it's just a typo nobody caught.13:45
aon"We are evil heavy metal dudes! Now let us decapitate some bats and work on our grammar."13:46
tilmanpretty stilly, considering how many people must have seen it during (pre)production etc13:46
treachyeah. :)13:46
tilmanCommon Danish, Swedish and Norwegian form: Loke13:48
tilmanidiots again13:48
treachyes, the gods name was loke, but its his treachery they are talking about13:48
tilmani was just wondering why they spell it with an 'e'13:49
tilman(they usually use the english names)13:49
treachoh, he has an international alias..? :p13:49
tilmanexcept that they always spell 'oden' with an 'e' too13:49
tilman hehe13:50
treachheh, presumeably a dish that makes you wise? Or that is smartly served?13:51
* treach takes cover13:51
treach"Balder" seems to be a guy with a name that works internationally though.. even if I can imagine a few smiles in english and german speaking countries. :-)13:53
jjpkFirst time I see it has been written as "oden"13:54
jjpkUsually it has been written "odin"13:54
treachyou guys aren't nordic ;-)13:54

j^2hell the IT director now based everything off win2k3 small business server.... the first thing any MCSE et al is taught is _NOT_ to use it14:36
treachbah, I bet it's better than win95. :D14:37
treach(I have actually seen win95 been used as "servers"..)14:38
* Romster grumbles14:38
tektreach: automatic re-start job every night? :)14:38
Romsterwhat would cause this error message on a once working program...14:38
