tilmanRomster: is it necessary to make contrib/tidy use cvs? :/01:30
Romsterhmm let me check.01:32
Romsterthey don't release updated archives, so the only other method is if i take a snapshot of it and then have the snapshot in the tidy port.01:34
Romsteri've not hd luck with cvs like i have with svn for tags...01:34
Romsterif you have a sugestion i'm all ears01:34
*** mrks_ has joined #crux01:43
tilmanRomster: for example, you could create a snapshot tarball every now and then (when they added a much-needed feature or something) and have the port use that01:44
Romsteryeah i'll do that.01:45
Romsterseems ppl really hate having to have cvs on there system01:45
*** deus_ex has joined #crux01:45
tilmanthe point is that cvs/svn ports suck01:47
*** rxi has joined #crux01:47
Romsterthats another pont too.01:48

treachyou gotta love linus. :P07:38
jjpkWhat did linus say/do this time?07:50
treachanother spat with the gnomers. :P07:50
jjpkI have a feeling this has potential to become an epic...07:53
jjpkI will put it this way, i don't hate gnome but I don't like their implementation.07:55
treachapparently a trait you (and I) share with linus. :)07:55
jjpkYes it does make the transition easier to WUS people, but the engineering is too complex imo.07:55
treachAlso, I find their attitudes extremely annoying.07:56
treachlike that Schaller guy.07:56
*** DaViruz_ has joined #crux08:01
jjpktreach: have a link? I can't find anything apart from the december 2005 spat.08:04
jjpklooks like Linus understands spanish :D08:13
treachor at least knows someone who does.08:13
treachBut I guess he does.08:13
jjpkMarcos is saying "I too am an idiot. I don't know how to configure the majority of the desktop options, but I can use linux because gnome helped me"08:15
*** DaViruz_ has quit IRC08:15
treachtalk about not getting the issue.08:15
treachI guess that means he's right. :P08:16
jjpkAlthough it has been a long time since I used ubuntu, it felt very much like how Linus described the situation.08:17
jjpkNice and fancy to start out, but you are afraid to touch any settings.08:18
treachI think our current successes go a long way towards proving our position and08:20
treachability to execute when it comes to usability and design08:20
treach.... jeff waugh, an alternative spelling for "I've got my head up my ass".08:20
tilmanhe's got a dark helmet quote in his sig though08:22
tilmanthat makes him cool08:22
jjpkI'm reading the original post to which Linus replied, talk about harsh comments :D08:23
*** funky has joined #crux08:23
treachjjpk: link? =)08:23
jjpk"you can't expect every user to be a super programmer, many people just need it for simple tasks"08:23
jjpk(it's in Spanish, though)08:23
funkynice language08:23
funkybonito lenguaje :)08:24
jjpkGreat way to end the post. "Linus, you can't read Spanish, LETS SEE IF YOU WILL BE AN IDIOT AS WELL"08:24
treachheh, well, I don't know spanish, but given enough time I could probably decipher it. På samma vis som tilman läser svenska. :p08:25
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC08:26
jjpkLucky him this is not the Vatican, I doubt they tolerate blasphemy nearly as much as the OSS community :D :D08:26
tilmanspanish is a different kind of fish though :D08:27
tilmanbut now that i stared at the mail for 15 minutes, i think i've figured out what "IDIOTA" means :P08:27
treachwell, weren't you a latin student?08:28
treachthat should be of some help.08:28
tilmani cheated in latin (the whole class did)08:28
tilmanbut i took a spanish course once08:28
tilmanso, yes08:28
*** aon has quit IRC08:29
treachheh, all I have to go with are the "friends" you find in various european languages. :)08:30
treachactually you can understand a lot that way.08:30
treachit's a bit tedious though.08:31
jjpkMany words usually do resemble English but they are pronounced differently.08:31
tilmanyeah, and then there's all these backwards exclamation- and question marks08:31
*** aon has joined #crux08:32
treachI guess you just have to watch out for "false friends". :/08:32
* tilman ponders spamming the spanish dude for calling linus a nazi08:34
treachGNOME ES BUENO porque -> Gnome is good pork? :P08:35
tilmanporque -> "why" resp "because of"08:35
tilmandepending on the context obviously ;)08:35
treachI was just kidding, hinting at what I said above about "false friends".08:36
treachfalse friends is what makes you think you know what I say when I use words like "invalid", "prick" and (you'll love this) "fart".08:37
tilmanyes, i know what false friends are08:38
tilmani picked up your example anyway to show off my l33t skillz08:38
*** bisco has quit IRC08:38
*** DaViruz_ has joined #crux08:39
treachah. I didn't know the name "false friends" were that common.08:39
tilmanthey haunted me in english class for years in school ;))08:40
tilmanReally, I'm not kidding. It's either "Grandma", "Mum" or a discussion08:40
tilmanabout nipples and tits.08:40
tilman<3 linus <308:40
treachIn fact I didn't know the name of those pesky words until pretty recently, since everyone laughs at them but nobody has given them a name that I heard.08:40
tilman# Here's a damn big clue: the reason I find gnome limiting is BECAUSE IT IS.08:41
treachright on.08:42

RedShiftdeus_ex: I always use pre-made cables... saves alot of headaches ;-)13:47
jjpkProbably much cheaper in the end to buy cable and make it yourself.13:51
RedShiftjah for home sure13:52
deus_exRedShift: That depends on where you's much easier/cheaper/flexible to buy the tools, cable and all, and to make a cable.14:00
deus_expremade cables are hard to find here.14:00
RedShiftpremade cables are common here14:00
tilmani once turned a normal TP cable into a crossover cable14:01
RedShiftand when you've got a business to run that extra euro doesn't really matter if it saves you three days of headaches :-P14:01
tilmanmanually, without proper tools (crimp thing)14:01
tilmanjeeeez, that was fun14:01
tilmanbut it has been working reliably for 5 years now or so14:01
tilmani modified it twice14:01
tilmanturned it into a xover cable, then reverted it a year ago14:01
guaquai actually used an existing phone cable to run ethernet14:02
deus_exRedShift: There is an added bonus:when cable doesn't work, I get to kick one who made it ;)14:03
guaquaand had to extend the damn thing from the middle cos it didn't have enough wires inside14:03
tilmandoesn't that raise issues with shielding or something?14:03
guaquait works alright. it's got 6 wires inside...14:03
guaqua2 are used by the telephone and 4 by the ethernet14:03
tilmani thought TP was 10 o_O14:04
guaquano problemo at all :D14:04
tilmanor 8?14:04
tilmanor 7? :P14:04
guaquathis is just like 20 year old phone cable14:04
guaquatp has 8 wires14:04
RedShiftI bet gigabit works fine on that...14:04
tilmanguaqua: so you used two phone cables?14:04
guaquaup to 100 mbit ethernet uses only 4 wires14:04
RedShiftI use gigabit wherever I can14:05
guaquafrom the wall i used normal utp14:05
RedShiftand I always use FTP cable14:05
guaquathen i switched to using the 4 unused wires from an existing phone cable14:05
guaquaand then back to utp14:05
guaquaso there's like 6 meter fragment of normal phone cable14:06
guaquanever had any problems with the cable14:06
guaquaor the connection14:06
guaquaethernet cables are not rocket science :)14:08
RedShiftyes they are14:08
guaquai'd rather install ethernet wiring myself and do it right than let someone else do the same thing or cope with some half-ass solution14:09
jjpkIt's gratifying and usually much cheaper ;)14:15
guaquathose true too14:16

tilmanis there a small and fancy app that i can use to switch between keyboard layouts in x?16:13
tilmani think there's a gnome applet with flags and stuff, but i don't use gnome16:13
tilmandamn german umlauts don't work well on qwerty :/16:14
aonuse qwertz :)16:14
tilmanyes, but running 'setxkbmap' 100 times isn't fun16:15
tilmani can't properly type with qwertz16:15
aonit takes like a week to learn :)16:16
aon...then you get home and de-learn it for another week :/16:16
tilmanno way i'd switch back to qwertz for a longer time16:16
tilman {} and [] are VERY painful with qwertz16:17
tilmanand / and ;16:17
aonyeah, they're about as painful on fi-qwerty too16:17
jaegertilman: I use this to get easy umlauts with qwerty -
aonin fact when i was delearning qwertz i thought of switching to it althogether, i only need å like once a year :)16:18
tilmanbut you need ä and ö no?16:18
tilmanjaeger: i'm after an app to do the switching16:19
aonwhich you have..16:19
tilmanyes, but i don't need them often16:19
tilmandoing umlauts is easy in latex (eg "o for ö)16:19
aonor then you can have some stuff in the beginning to enable them16:20
tilmanhow would you insert them then?16:21
aonjust put ös and äs in the text16:21
tilmanbut i can't type them in qwerty ;)16:21
tilmanand i want to use qwerty16:21
aoni know :)16:22
* tilman slaps together some crappy slides for a "talk"16:22
jaegertilman: would it be a problem to be enabled all the time?16:22
tilmani want to enable it, type an umlaut, disable it :D16:23
jaegeron your own, then, heh16:23
jaegerI just leave mine enabled all the time16:23
aonisn't there some way to do that from xorg.conf?16:23
aonwith some key combo16:23
aonwtf is wrong with my firefox16:24
aonit's started doing 'i'm feeling lucky' instead of properly searching16:24
aonit just gives some random annoying pages directly :)16:24
* tilman fills his bash_history with setxkbmap calls16:26
aon    Option     "XkbLayout"  "us,ru"16:26
aon    Option     "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps,grp:shift_toggle"16:26
aonwould toggle with shift+shift16:26
aonapparently there's also caps_toggle16:26
tilmanwow, thanks16:27
tilmanreminds me of windows xp16:27
jaegerwell, you could always USE windows xp :)16:27
