mike_ksee 2.3 head of opt and core git tree02:55
_mavrick61I'm most concerned about "iproute2" and the "new" way to init IP (v4 and v6),  which replase ifconfig.02:57
mike_kdid you follow the flyspray at ?02:58
_mavrick61I just try to keep my self on tack now.. I have been so busy with several system installations..03:01
mike_ktalking about current 2.2: there is a little problem updating to latest iproute2. you need to update kernel-headers from 2.6.19 (.18 might work)03:03
_mavrick61Yes.. I and my colleague realized that.03:06

bd2hi all. is there any particular reason why pure gnu binutils used in crux, instead of linux-specific from
mike_kany problems on arm? as cptn has retired - flyspray is the best way to get attention.08:18
bd2no problems at all. I'm using binutils from privately, just curious why gnu binutils used by default08:19
bd2..probably it's because H.J. Lu calling them "beta", but in fact they are more like bugfix releases, as noticed from changelog08:21

DBAlexhello... what package management system does crux use??10:26
DBAlexand how will it perform on an AMD 64 300010:26
DBAlexis there even a 64 bit port?10:26
guaquapkgtools, or something like that. don't know the name. mostly the software is compiled10:31
guaquaso with that kind of a processor it should be a breeze10:31
DBAlexwhat about PPC... I have a mac mini laying about... Can I install Crux on that?10:31
guaquathere used to be a ppc port10:32 knows10:32
guaquabrowsing it for that info myself too10:32
DBAlexwhat hardware do you run Crux on?10:32
guaquai'm running it on grand ol10:33
guaqua' duron 1600 :)10:33
guaquaand also on my httpd, p2 45010:33
guaquai love the package management10:33
DBAlexmy main interest is amiga computers...10:33
DBAlexdont think Crux would like an install on that though ;)10:33
DBAlexDo you know/remember the amiga????????10:34
DBAlexawesome computer from the 80's/90's10:34
guaquawell...unless you are thinking of making a port by yourself i figure crux is a dead end :)10:34
DBAlexspecially as they have 68k processors10:34
guaquafor servers crux is handy. especially if you need to tinker with the compile options of the software10:35
guaquabut there's no 64-bit version so that might be a slight disadvantage10:35
guaquanow this is a bit old already, 2.0:
guaquaeta for 2.3 is somewhere on the 2007Q1 i guess10:36
