pitillohi Romster, do you have a link to your script?02:42
*** rxi has joined #crux02:43
Romsternot yet i had a sleep and now messing with it again, i'll pastebin it, it works so if you know basic bash you'll be ok02:45
Romsterpaste.lisp.org can not be found ???02:47
pitillouse another... pastebin.ca for example02:48
Romsteryeah i'em but the fact that its not there...02:50
Romsterhttp://pastebin.ca/22061702:54
pitillointeresting the option != system, using the cdrom. I made the sript for that, but remade it manually because it didn´t work correctly. I prefer to use the cd iso to test own ports deps.02:59
pitilloI will eat something and think a bit later. :)03:00
Romsterheh03:03
Romsterpitillo, idea is to use the current updated system but it'll be clean.03:04
Romsteras the core is from the cd + updates03:04
Romsterit needs more work done to it but it works.03:04
*** GSF has quit IRC03:17
pitillotrue, understand the meaning and is usefull that. Need to read it better and then test it. With mine, I have problems with db. When installing my ports the scripts see all my ports of my current system, instead of see only core/opt .03:33
*** rxi has quit IRC03:44
*** rxi has joined #crux03:44
pitillowhat is the meaning of this? cd='/home/*/crux-2.2'03:44
Romsterwell it'll look for the cd image in /home/*/crux-2.2.iso :)03:51
Romsterwhich could be /home/pitillo/crux-2.2.iso or /home/romster/crux-2.2.iso03:52
Romsterits a half baked part of the bash script03:52
Romsterwhich will get improved apon.03:52
pitillobut isn´t used at the moment, no?03:53
Romsterno03:53
Romsterbecasue its set to 'system'03:53
pitillowell, understand it. :)03:53
Romsterits a work in progress :)03:54
pitillo:)03:54
Romsteri only spent a few hours on it yesterday03:54
Romsterand i'm no bash expert yet.03:55
pitillowell, I´m not too. But can be interesting to remake it, IMO. Mine made yesterday was very poor compared with your script.03:56
Romster:/03:59
pitilloand what about the last soft links? (distfiles and packages) are you copying from your current system to the chrooted enviromet?03:59
Romsteri'm working on it more now, so its useable to test ports with03:59
Romsteryes atm i'em03:59
Romsteralthough i'm not sure on packages04:00
Romsteras some should be rebuilt in the clean chroot04:00
Romsterthats another area i need to work on04:01
Romstersure beats the old copy i was using that took forever04:01
Romsterwith a few GB of files04:01
pitillonot sure about that. I prefer to use the ports/pakages from cd by now to test my ports over a "fresh install" and make sure the dependencies are "well"04:04
Romsterpitillo, hence why i'm making the scrpt with options, system or cd :)04:05
Romsters/scrpt/script04:05
pitilloyeah, but the last part of script will affect both.04:06
Romsterhmm, good point04:07
Romsterso it should copy files from the cd not the system in that case04:07
pitilloyes04:07
Romsteri'll make functions and fix that without duplicationg code04:08
Romsterpitillo, wanna work on this with me?04:08
Romstersince your interesed jsut as much as i'em04:08
pitillosure, but mmy knowledge is limited like i said04:09
Romsterso is mine :)04:09
Romsterany ideas etc is good enougth04:09
pitillotrue04:09
Romsterso far its working good on my pc but its not very portable yet.04:11
pitilloI need a break at work to test it at home04:11
Romsteri need to make it more generic example use settings for paths out of pkgmk.conf04:12
Romsterpitillo, you may need to edit it a bt in its current state04:13
*** rxi has quit IRC04:13
*** rxi has joined #crux04:13
richi_authi, could you tell me, why libstdc++-compat is needed (i couldn't find it in lfs)?04:14
Romsterits old librarys to allow old binary programs to run04:14
Romsterafaik04:14
Romstercompatability for older gcc compiled binarys04:14
richi_autahh, ok, thanks04:15
Romsterif i'm worng soemone will correct me04:15
richi_autand the linux-headers mentioned in lfs don't show up in crux. do you know the reason?04:15
Romsterafaik we use headers from fedoria or wahtever that distro is named,04:16
Romsterwe don't use the ones in the kernel yet04:17
Romsteri wouldn't mind testing them out actually04:17
richi_autbut it seems that they are for 2.6.12, or something like that (i read one post where someone reported, that they would work for newer kernels, too)04:18
Romsterhmmz04:19
Romsterprobbly that old04:19
Romsterrichi_aut, crux is a small distro too, mainly just core ports then you add on top of that04:20
Romsterif you really want to be brave you can also remove some core ports too04:20
richi_autmaybe i'll try (got a long weekend ;) )04:21
Romsterheh i gotta work this weekend.04:25
Romsteri've never tryed to generate kernel headers04:25
pitillowell, added a header to use functions... http://lokalix.dyndns.org/tmp/test (not tested, anly writed a bit)04:46
pitillos/anly/only ...04:47
*** GSF has joined #crux04:53
Romsteryeah simaler to that04:58
Romsteri hate this "Too many levels of symbolic links" error grrz04:58
* Romster gets a coffee04:59
pitilloredo it removing install_type and checking mount point. Do you know how to be in true that if $2 isn´t used shows help? $2 refer to the second parameter when using the image option.05:03
pitillos/that if/ when05:04
pitilloI need to read more bash scripts examples, sorry.05:05
pitilloummm what about this?  if [ i = i ]; then... can be removed by now. I can suppose that is thinked to install all ports instead of $toolchains´s ports05:14
Romsteryeah i gotta fix that05:32
Romsterand i can do the prams part i got that covered.05:32
*** predatorfreak has quit IRC05:45
pitilloRomster, if [ $p != `grep -o $p "$toolchain"` ]; then06:14
pitilloNeed to be added -o option to match only the port I think06:14
pitillouploaded the changes...06:17
pitillonot tested, sorry.06:18

Romsterpitillo, still about?08:20
RomsterHan, its git now.08:21
Romsterrantolo, don't you want to use rsync?08:21
Romsterouch infinity loop08:22
tilmanjaeger \o/08:24
jaegerRomster: what are you trying to accomplish with your script? If it's a clean set of packages you're after you could use the official makefile08:24
tilmanrantolo: maybe it's on the crux ml? i don't know.08:24
Romsterjaeger, nearly got it sorted its a chroot script, which will either use a iso or the current ports system thats installed.08:25
jaegertilman: yay, shark!08:25
jaegerRomster: have any project in mind for it? Or just sandboxing?08:26
Romsterjust sandboxing atm, but i think i'll make it as a program i've given it arguments now.08:29
Romstertesting ports is the intended pourpose, but it could be useful for other things like tool chain building etc.08:30
jaegerdefinitely08:31
jaegerI use a chroot to build updated livecds08:31
Romsterjaeger, http://pastebin.ca/22101208:37
Romsterthis is what i have so far08:37
*** richi_aut has quit IRC08:37
jaegerlooks interesting08:41
Romsteryeah figuring what to add etc is the problem and i hate the too many nested symlinks problem i got too08:42
Romsteri need to use paths out of pkgmk.conf yet too08:42
Romsteri'm also thinking it can be setup todo a automatic rebuild of ports apon system changes (ex new core port versions) to see if nothing is broken.08:44
Romsterand this be easy to find all the dependencys for a given port too.08:45
Romsterif you got any ideas let me know.08:45
jaegerno ideas but I'll keep it in mind08:52

Romsterah another bug fixed, slowly getting there.08:59
Romsterunderstand it so far pitillo?09:03
Romsterhow do i get around this i've done 'umount .../dev09:14
Romsterrm: cannot remove directory `/crux-2.2//dev/pts': Device or resource busy09:14

Romsterumount: /crux-2.2/dev/pts: not mounted09:17
jaegertry lsof, find out what's being used in there and what's using it09:18
Romsteri got a feeling i've moved my main one from /dev/pts to /crux-2.2/dev/pts09:18
Romsterhmm haven't got lsof installed. doing that now09:19
Romsteri have nothing in /dev/pts/ nor /crux-2.2/dev/pts/09:23
tilmanmounting devpts might be a good idea09:23
Romsteryeah i think so09:24
Romstersudo mount --bind /dev /09:24
Romsterand still nothing09:24
* Romster scratches my head09:24
Romsteri'm only just understanding the inter workings09:24
Romsters/inter/iner09:24
jaegermount -t devpts devpts /dev/pts09:24
Romsterah09:25
Romsterah thats better09:25

Romsterrm: cannot remove directory `/crux-2.2//dev/pts': Device or resource busy09:27
Romsteri don't get it and lsof isn't saying anything.09:27
jaegerany process running in the chroot that might use it?09:27
Romsterarg09:29
Romsternow i can't get any ptys...09:29
Romsterand i closed konsole, how lovely09:29
Romsterbugered if i know, there shouldn't be09:30

Romsterarg no mouse now lol09:31
Romsteri did udevtriger too09:32
Romsteri can't do anything but reboot now switched to pty2 and i can't even login09:32

RyoSanyone ever had the problem that /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.dir was an empty file?14:14
j^2RyoS, do you have fontconfig installled?14:15
j^2i think that happened to me once because of thath14:15
tilmanmisc/ doesn't contain TTFs14:15
tilmanfontconfig only cares about TTFs14:15
j^2oh14:15
j^2hmm14:15
j^2it was *font* something14:15
tilman:D14:15
RyoSwell, fonts.dir is created by mkfontdir right? which is from xorg14:16
tilmanyes14:16
RyoSand its supposed to be empty?14:16
tilmanno14:16
RyoSso why is it empty for me <.<14:16
RyoSit makes me want to break my broom and eat it14:16
tilmanif it was supposed to be empty, i wouldn't have set up /usr/ports/x11r7/xorg-font-misc-misc/post-install the way i did14:17
tilman;p14:17
RyoSyep14:17
RyoSwell it creates empty files for me14:17
RyoSit does that too for 75dpi and 100dpi fonts14:17
RyoSis there some way i can generate that file by hand..?14:19

*** muerto has joined #crux15:12

RyoSwhat could cause that..?15:14

tilmanfind out why it doesn't want to open pcf files15:26
RyoSalright, thanks15:26
tilmani should probably fix mkfontscale to give a meaningful error in that case15:27

_mavrick61Any one else who can't install/download screen pkg? I have been so for 2 days now.18:05
jaegerjust have to get the source from another mirror18:06
_mavrick61I can't find a mirror. Checked through freshmeat.18:07
jaegergoogle for the filename, usually comes up with a few18:08
_mavrick61I'll try that too again.. No success before.. All pointing to the borken FTP site..18:09
_mavrick61Make this search.. screen-4.0.3.tar.gz Bad luck...18:12
_mavrick61Noramlly there is a lot of nirrors... But in this case it seem to be big problem...18:13
jaegerstill too new, perhaps18:15
*** seekwill has joined #crux18:27
seekwillWow, we have 1.1 and 1.3 workstations around...18:27
_mavrick61It might be soo...18:29
_mavrick61By the way.. I just come home from Stockholm, it seem we will get lest 100 Mbs to our system. So we can soon move everything to the Crux server.18:30
jaegernice18:30
_mavrick61Internel backbone is now on Gigabit...18:30

seekwillI need to setup a RAID1 on IDE/ATA drives. Is it better to use something like one of those external IDE controllers with RAID (I think Promise makes one) or have Linux do it?19:29
jaegergenerally better to let hardware do the raid if you can19:30
jaegerthey have nice features like battery-backed cache, etc.19:30
jaegerand linux sees it only as a regular disc and doesn't have to do extra work19:31
jaegermore or less19:31
treach...provided that you don't use those cheap integrated "raid" controllers featured on a lot of mainboards these days..19:32
seekwillThat's what I figured, but it's only mirroring. Should be 'easy' for Linux to do... I've never used the cheap integrated "RAID" controllers, nor ATA RAIDs.19:32
treachgood deal :-)19:33
seekwillIt's to mirror a backup drive. Storing backup files there before we burn to DVD.19:33
jaegerprobably fine19:33
copworkI once had a promise fastrak onboard controller19:35
seekwillDid it work welL?19:35
* treach has a SiI3112A :-(19:36
copworkno, I basically had to use a software raid19:36
* nipuL uses gvinum19:36
copworkyou were right with stay away from onboard shit19:36
treachyeah, I just use it as a normal controller.19:37
seekwillSo I'm better off going software RAID huh?19:37
treachtoo bad most OS's can't make decent use of it anyway. :-(19:37
treachprobably.19:37
copworkif you find a nice priced hardware solution19:37
copworkthat has linux support go for it19:38
nipuLimho hardare is overkill unless your system is enterprise19:38
treachsw raid doesn't use that much cpu, and you won't be tied to any specific hw.19:38
copworkbut the ram and battery that jaeger mentioned19:38
copworkmakes those cards expensive19:38
treachindeed.19:38
copworknipuL is right19:38
copworkdepends on what you use it for19:38
copworka software raid for mirroring purposes is good19:39
copworki had to install the os on the software raid19:39
seekwillBasically, at night, this computer uses backup2L to make diff backups. Then in the morning I burn to CD or DVD. So trying not to spend too much as long as if it works.19:39
treachsounds like hw would be a bit over the top.19:41
copworkgo software19:42
jaegertoo expensive in this case19:43
seekwillWell, those IDE RAID cards are pretty cheap hehe. But yeah, thanks.20:00

seekwillnipuL: It's a Celeron366. I have WAY too much CPU cycles. It's only doing DHCP serving, DNS caching, some light PHP/MySQL work, backups of 4GB nightly, some ImageMagick magic, etc. It all fits in 96MB of RAM too.22:15

Romsterfirefox 2.0 fails to compile http://pastebin.ca/22221722:37
jaegerhaven't seen that one before22:38
seekwillAt what point does fstab get read? I like to init the raid, so fstab can mount it. Or maybe that's not a good idea...22:42
jaegerhave a look in /etc/rc, you can see the order of things there22:43
seekwillAh, interesting.22:46
seekwillThanks. Have to do it before the -o22:47
*** j^2 has joined #crux22:49
Romsteralso whats up with mplayer files the md5sums are on the site but not the archives22:49
jaegernot sure what they did22:49
*** j^2 has quit IRC22:49
jaegerit's annoying, though22:49
Romsterdefently22:50
Romsteri got a previous version but, geez thats anoying..22:50
Romsterthey must of stuffed up something.22:50
jaegerlooks like it's on some of the other mirrors, just got removed from www322:51
Romsterhmm i'm gonna have ago at compiling firefox using the system stuff.22:51
jaegertry www122:51
Romsterah22:51
Romsterand guess where the Pkgfile points to :P22:51
jaegerI know where the Pkgfile points, I wrote it22:52
thrice`heh22:52
jaegerAnd it worked, at the time :)22:52
Romsterthats better.22:53
Romsterdidn't know they had more mirrors22:53
Romstermust implment that mirror idea for pkgmk22:53
seekwilljaeger: Perfect! Thanks!22:54
jaegerthey manage to keep about 6 running most times but they're bad at syncing up their contents22:54
Romsterseekwill, just before mount -o ? in rc22:54
seekwillRomster: Yeah.22:54
Romsteryeah i see that, this is the first sync problem i've seen though22:55
jaegerseekwill: good deal22:55
Romstersourceforge is bad for mirrors keeping sync22:55
jaegerRomster: if we still had the cvs logs you could see how many times I had to commit a retarded mplayer mirror change22:55
jaegerit was a bunch22:55
Romsterseekwill, software or hardware, i'm interested in a raid later on, a howto be nice22:55
seekwillRomster: Software for RAID1. It's so easy!22:56
seekwillI used http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/linux/2002/12/05/RAID.html?page=122:56
Romsterjaeger, hence more reason to add a mirrors=() string to Pkgfiles and edit pkgmk.in :P22:56
jaegerI'm running software raid1 on a server at work, been very solid so far22:56
Romsteri have a idea i want to try out22:56
seekwillRomster: But make sure you enable RAID support in the kernel! (I forgot and was stuck on that for a while heh)22:56
Romsterneat, what app?22:57
Romsterseekwill, lol22:57
Romsterits normally on by default22:57
seekwillIt is?22:57
Romsteri disabled it as i have no need for it atm22:57
seekwillMine wasn't.22:57
Romsteryes22:57
Romsterthats odd22:58
Romsterjaeger, any idea on that missing file in firefox?22:58
jaegerRomster: haven't run into that one, myself. have the file, too. /usr/include/firefox/system_wrappers/new.h22:59
Romsterwhy don't you have ./configure --prefix=/usr ?22:59
Romster./work/src/mozilla/build/wince/shunt/include/new.h23:01
Romsterwho the hell does firefox ever install on other distros with the way the Pkgfile is.23:02
