xsachahmm i have an issue with usb mouse07:42
xsachait works fine with live cd, but with this compiled kernel my usb mouse isnt getting power :( i have usb support turned on and HDI devices enabled07:42
xsachaany ideas?07:43
jjpkand there goes the wrong window. :p07:45
xsachawhile you're here.. :)07:45
jjpkxsacha: you could always check what modules the live cd loads, then find them from the usb section of the kernel.07:46
xsachai dont use modules, all built in07:46
xsachacould that be a problem?07:46
jjpkThe point is to find the proper drivers, it does not matter whether they are built in or modules.07:47
xsachai think i have the right usb modules, it's just my mouse doesnt get power? or should it give it power when it is detected?07:48
xsachathe lights on my mouse are on in BIOS but as soon as kernel loads they turn off07:49
*** MrX has joined #crux07:52
pitilloxsacha, may be you can take a look to laptops guides at and this is a little guide I made. Check the kernel usb support and Xserver configuration07:55
xsachakk im not using a laptop, kernel usb support is enabled and problem is before xserver :S as soon as kernel loads, mouse power turns off07:57
xsachai'll have a look at that .config though07:58
xsachaCONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD and CONFIG_USB_UHCI_HCD i didnt have these two enabled.. think they could be it?08:03
pitilloxsacha, take a look to your motherboard`s usb controllers. You`ll need to enable wich you have.08:05
xsachayeah mine is via.. which is UHCI i think08:05
pitilloxsacha, lspci can help you to be sure...08:06
xsachaYES :)08:11
xsachastrange thing.. my kernel loads and then everything turns off, resolution changes to 1280x1024 and then kernel loads again08:12
xsachanice big resolution for console :D cant complain, just curious why it loads twice08:12
copworkits the framebuffer console that is being active08:18
xsachaah k08:18
copworkafter the framebuffer initializes on your gpu08:18
copworkyou activated it in the kernel :-P08:19
copworkused for bootsplashes08:20

xSachathis port system is great :D22:22
xSachainstalling KDE and about 100 dependancies from source with one short command, hah22:23
xSachaone thing -- i was wondering, how can i specify which mirror to use? for eg. when it downloads from sourceforge it uses the default mirror and sometimes that default mirror doesnt have the package22:24
xSachai manually edited the pkgfiles to point to optusnet mirror but i am wondering if there is a way to just do it broadly?22:24
xSachaor should i just write a scrip that goes through each directory in ports, finds the pkgfile and replaces dl.sourceforge with optusnet.dl.sourceforge?22:26
thrice`xSacha: sure, in /etc/hosts22:27
xSachaah ok just redirect it to optusnet in hosts22:27
xSachathanks :D i get 1MB/s off optusnet and only 10KB/s off default mirror :S so that's a big help22:28
thrice`sure thing22:33
