pitilloRomster, using for images working with mount point. Need to remake the auto-locate .iso. Take a look to the end, added some comments and can help you to umount your system.01:20
pitillocopwork, goodmorning01:20
*** maro has joined #crux01:22
copworki was shrinking my system and now missed some files01:23
copworkmissing the default font and the locale de01:23
copworkany guess where I have to look ?01:23
copworkhaha, /usr/share/kbd01:26
copworkso stupid01:26
copworkus keyboard layout renders me useless01:27
maroremoving random files is a pretty stupid way to "shrink" your system :(01:58
Romsteryeah when you can use the "prt-get remove" tool01:59
pitilloRomster, made more changes... updated at web.02:03
Romsterpitillo, can't the site view it instead of insisting me to download it.02:03
Romsteri still got a funky problem here...02:03
Romsterbash-3.1# chroot /var/tmp/crux-2.2 /bin/sh02:04
Romsterchroot: cannot run command `/bin/sh': No such file or directory02:04
Romsterany ideas and yes the file exists and my system runs normally otherwise.02:05
pitilloRomster, the fast way to do that is changing the extension instead of reconfigure the server, I think.02:07
copworkmaro, i didnt try to randomly shrink them02:08
copworkwant to make a small usb bootable version02:08
copworkperhaps wrong permissions on /var/tmp/crux-2.2/bin/sh02:09
pitilloRomster, for me is working well. Didn´t try the system option, but added the copy of own repo to chrooted enviroment. Added the own repo like a new argument.02:09
Romstercopwork, doubt it02:11
Romster-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 679348 Oct 26 21:33 /var/tmp/crux-2.2/bin/bash02:11
copworkits a symlink then ?02:12
Romsteryes sh is a symlink to bash02:12
copworkperhaps the symlink is b0rken after the chroot02:12
Romsterlrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Oct 27 16:43 /var/tmp/crux-2.2/bin/sh -> bash02:12
copworkmhm, k02:12
Romsteri've tryed it with bash too.02:12

Romsterso my bash isn't missing any librarys, and yet it still refuses to work with chroot03:08
Romstermeh, i'm taking a break03:13
pitilloRomster, did you try to chroot in without parm /bin/bash? (chroot dir only)03:24
Romsteryes and it did the same thing03:39
pitilloand what about chrooting under other dir instead of /tmp?03:42
Romstertryed that too and i got the same error03:42
pitillodon´t know about, I can´t help sorry03:43
Romstertell me about it... i'm pissed off at this computer, i just had a shower and gonna cook dinner.03:43

pitillodo you have a secure way to install packages? I refer if are you using pkgmk user (or other) to build them.03:45
Romsternar i don't bother with that i do it as root03:56
pitillowell, if you had a secured way to do that... thing need to be changed too... in my case, need to be copied passwd and sudoers too.03:59

pitilloRomster, need to add another option to make a difference between non-secured/secured way for building ports.05:00

*** the-ruediger has quit IRC06:37
pitillohey I forgot too, got the same /bin/bash error and it was because wasn´t mounted cleanly the chroot enviroment... reloading udev solves it06:38

sdahi, is someone familiar with evdev?10:55
*** the-ruediger has joined #crux10:57
sdawho do I get it to work?11:00
sdado i have to recompile x11 with evdev support???11:01
bd21. enable it in kernel (plus input devices which you want to make work) 2. afaik, Xorg 7 have ability to auto detect evdev devices (without udev/hal/e.t.c.)11:02
sdawell i have to use x11r6.9 because of the ati driver11:03
bd2sda, nope. But really I haven't tried it, except that I've plugged USB mouse and keyboards and it "just start working" without even X11 restart11:03
bd2sda, I'm using x11r6.9 too11:03
bd2just make sure that you have /dev/input/* files appeard after you plug device.11:06
sdawhich mousedriver do you use in /etc/X11/xorg.conf  ?11:06
bd2you can also cat them to make sure11:06
sdafiles in /dev/input/ are present - my mouse works - but not with evdev11:07
bd2sda, none. :-) my x11 just autodetects it :-)11:07
bd2sda, /dev/input/mouseN device exist?11:08
bd2hm.. should work then. I recommend you to stay tuned, and ask tilman, X11 guru.11:09
treach"Grumpy X11 guru" lately ;-)11:09
sdai just get a black screen when i set the mouse driver to "evdev"  in xorg.conf11:10
tilmani recommend to ask #xorg11:10
tilmanor send me $$$ or chocolate or coffee11:10
bd2sda, have you Load "extmod" in xorg.conf?11:12
bd2it's only one that I don't know about, thus maybe it'll help :-)11:12
RyoStilman: or beer11:14
sdai think so11:14
tilmani don't know anything about evdev btw11:15

*** Cheikh has joined #crux14:26
Cheikhafter installing a new kernel i get " kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)14:28
treachcompile the support for your root fs *into* the kernel, not as a module.14:31
HanCompile all the stuff you need into the kernel. modules are good for distro-kernels14:35
treachyeah. but you only *need* the drivers needed for booting compiled in.14:36
treachotherwise you get caught in a chicken-egg situation.14:36
HanUnless you use an imagerd14:37
Cheikhno i dont14:38
treachwell. You still need the drivers to read the imagerd..14:38
HanNo you don't. How else could lilo read the kernel?14:39
copworkgood evening14:39
HanAnyway. make a static kernel. They're much nicer.14:39
treachuh? I was of the notion that lilo read about where the kernel was by reading the mbr, but ofc I might be wrong about that. I haven't had to worry about that for years.14:41
Cheikhok another question why is it after booting my grub directory disappears14:55
rehabdollright, prepare to bite my head off: "could not open default font 'fixed'" :D15:20

prologicI must be on /ignore mode with Han :)18:41
prologicno seriously :)18:42
prologicH mentioned a missing dep with the inkscape port days ago18:42
prologic*sigh* :)18:42
jaegerguesses on how many are on his ignore list?18:43
prologicyou know what would be really good18:43
prologicif changes could be made to ports in contrib, and the changes filtered back to the maintainers automatically18:43
prologicsome system to do this be nice18:43
prologicthen they can either (A)ccept (R)eject the changes18:44
treachjaeger: I think the question might be better if you reversed it. :P18:44
jaegeremail a patch, might be easier18:44
prologiche ignores my emails too18:44
prologicbeen there tried that18:44
* prologic updates myth ports18:44
prologicI really should rebuild before committing huh :)18:46
jaegerprobably not a bad idea :)18:46
prologicI mean I can prolly trust that this guy did compile/test before sending me a patch!18:46
prologicbut ya never know18:46
treachand check for "residues".. ;-)18:46
prologichmm, thoughts ? I'm gonna leave the 0.19 diff files in there18:47
*** seekwill has quit IRC18:47
prologicin case anyone still is wanting to use 0.1918:47
Cheikhkernel panic unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)18:47
prologicfs support missing ?18:47
prologic99% the case :)18:48
treachHopefully not, I've alredy told him about that.18:48
* treach just don't get what's so hot about grub.18:48
Cheikhi have done that treach or maybe i enable something else18:48
prologichmm hey jaeger .... this guy removed the qt3 with mysql support bit out of my README18:48
*** bender02 has joined #crux18:48
prologicwhy would he do that :P ?18:48
prologicseems odd to me (I'm putting it back in)18:49
jaegerthat is a bit odd18:49
prologickinda important18:49
prologicbiggest thing that screwed my over trying to get mythtv working18:49
prologicI kinda wished they used the libmysqlclient library18:50
treachhmm.. If you're not certain if you enabled support for your root fs or if you did something else.. maybe ubuntu would be a better fit..18:50
jaegerCheikh: can you paste your kernel config somewhere?18:50
jaegerone of the pastebin sites, for example18:51
Cheikhit is gonna take a while but i can18:51
treachCheikh: did you read the readme file in the grub port?18:51
jaegerthe filesystems section would be enough18:51
jaegercan't think grub would be the problem, myself, since the kernel is loaded at this point18:52
treachtrue dat, my bad. :>18:52
Cheikhyes i did18:54
Cheikhbut i cant get lilo to work on my laptop18:54
treachok. Sometimes I get the feeling *nobody* reads those readme files..18:55
treachnot even the maintainers. :P18:55
prologicsome of us do :)18:56
treachwell, sometimes it happens that the port gets updated, and thus antiquidates the readme..18:57
*** knoppix has joined #crux18:58
treachbut maintaining readme's isn't as fun as maintaining ports, I guess. :)18:58
prologicwhat bts are we using on ?19:05
nipuLi always read the readmes, they were oviously put there for a reason19:09
jaegerprologic: Flyspray19:09
prologichmm yeah19:09
knoppixjaeger this is my config file baically unchange from original
jaegerwell, looks like everything's builtin. what's your partition layout?19:11
Cheikhmy root is /dev/hda319:11
jaegerok, I see part of the problem :)19:11
jaegerwhat's your / line in /etc/fstab look like?19:11
knoppixok one sec19:12
knoppixthis is my /etc/fstab
jaegerok, are you running grub or lilo on that machine?19:15
jaegerpaste that config, too, if you can19:15
jaegerok, try this for me19:17
jaegerreplace your kernel line with:19:17
jaegerkernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda319:17
knoppixi had that before but it does not help19:18
jaegerhrmm, ok19:18
jaegerwhat do you get if you run rootdev on the kernel image?19:18
jaegeror maybe it's rdev19:18
knoppixit says Root device 0x030319:19
jaegerhrmm... that should be correct19:19
knoppixbut the way it kernel2.6.18.119:20
jaegershouldn't matter, really19:20
jaegernot sure what the problem is :(19:21
jaegerwhen you boot that kernel, does it see your drive and the partition table correctly?19:22
knoppixi believe so it starts booting then says kernel panic19:22
knoppixbut i have declare in fstab /dev/hda1 as boot partition but my vmlinux is under /19:23
jaegerdoesn't really matter where you put it as long as you remember where19:24
jaegerI use a little different format but it shouldn't matter19:27
jaegerinstead of specifying the root separately I bundle it into the kernel declaration19:27
knoppixi can try that too i wanted to use this kernel because it supports my wireless card the bcm43xx19:29
jaegerwell, if you want to try it, here's an example:19:30
jaegertitle CRUX GNU/Linux 2.2 kernel (hd0,1)/vmlinuz-2.6.18 root=/dev/sda3 vga=0x30519:30
jaegerI don't expect it to help, though, hehe19:30
knoppixwill try it anyway19:31
jaegersorry for the lame paste. 2 lines, title and kernel19:32
knoppixyea i get it19:32
