tony__Problem: I added a repository with the p7zip package, but when I prt-get search p7zip I come up with nothing. I already ports -u12:31
jaegerdid you add that repo to /etc/prt-get.conf?12:34
tony__Well I used the httpup command12:36
tony__I added a text file to the /etc/ports12:36
jaegerprt-get only knows about what it can find via prtdir entries in its config file12:36
tony__Ok, I thought that httpup program would fix that. Ill have a look at that file12:37
AkiraYukibut the crux kernel is already setup?12:38
tony__Well, I managed to set up the system, and I have WindowMaker running.12:38
tony__I am trying to get my stuff back now, connecting an USB harddrive and 7zip so I can get my documents back,12:39
*** sepen has joined #crux12:41
rehabdolljaeger: somethings up with the rsync repo? the latest commits wont download with ports -u12:44

RyoSwhat points about crux should definately be in a wikipedia article?13:30
RyoSabout crux of course.. :)13:30
*** TheDux has quit IRC13:30
j^2it's up there isnt it?13:30
RyoSi mentioned ports system, prt-get13:30
RyoSj^2: german wikipedia13:30
RyoSthey deleted old article which only briefly stated what crux is about and gave a timeline of versions13:31
sepenalso I can include some lines on wiki-es13:39
Romsteri'm on to yhafri he added egenix-mx-base to hes repo and changed the Packager line! he could at least keep who made the port, and possability email me about alterations :/13:42
sepena lot of ports = a lot of bugs13:44
Romstertrue i keep to what i find useful and what i use..13:45
Romsterthe point is altering the Packager line13:45
Romsternot notyifying me of a improvment either.13:45
sepene.g.: openexr: packager=sepen mantainer=romster13:46
sepenthat's ok for me13:47
Romsteri fi use someone else port i keep the origional packager or the current maintainer gets the packager if its missing a packager, oviously yhafri is dishonest and claims all the ports as he's13:47
*** TheDux has joined #crux13:47
sepenyeah XD13:47
Romsterwell most the majority has him as the packager13:47
Romstersepen, yes i keep the origional packager and if the origional packager wants to take over maintaining they can.13:48
Romsterits principal that yhafri isn't maintaining, ok he may have overlooked checking that port but the majority of hes ports are hes, yeah right.13:49
sepenyeah, yhafri seems to work ont their own yhafri_crux xDD13:49
Romsterseems to be13:50
sepenis he a contrib user?13:50
* sepen wrong english xD13:51
Romsternot sure13:51
TheDuxcan any of you point me in the right directon to installing my network cards? :o13:52
TheDuxlike website wise :o13:52
guaquaplug it in, turn on the computer13:52
guaquaas for which kernel modules you have to13:53
guaquacompile in...13:53
guaquathat's another case13:53
RomsterTheDux, find the chipset then find the kernel module and enable it then add it to /etc/rc.modules13:53
guaquasee the chipset on the nic and decide from that13:53
Romsterand modprobe it13:53
TheDuxthx :o13:54
TheDux<--- was babied from debian :)13:54
Romsterdon't learn as much when ya use debian :P13:56
TheDux:P thats why I am trying to switch to something new (ie crux)13:57
Romsterwell crux is the way to go other than LFS13:57
Romstereasy to turn crux into any system you need.13:58
TheDuxheh :) never could finish lfs becuase someone always rebooted my computer13:58

blueCommandanyhow, I have a Pkgfile (.foot and .md5 too) for faad 2.5 (now it's 2.0). Is there anything special that needs to be done for it to be accepted?14:33

j^2tilman: old school man14:34
tilmanaon: no14:34
tilmanaon: i got it installed already14:35
tilmanaon: but the maintainer/lead coder said he'd be interested in spreading it to distros14:35
prologicis it any good ?14:35
aonyou installed it without a port? :o14:35
prologicI'll maintain it if it's worth my doing so :)14:35
tilmanaon: i'm hacking the code anyway14:35
aonah, right14:35
aonmakes sense :)14:36
tilmanprologic: it's stable. no sound support yet (i'm implementing that right now)14:36
tilmanit's not as much fun without sun14:36
prologicahh k14:36

prologicjava is orrible anyway :)16:24
guaquain so many ways *rolleyes*16:25
guaquait has it's good points though...16:25
prologicunbeliable how hard it is to do simple things in java16:25
prologiccompared to C or python16:25
prologicactually I'm all for stripped down OO languages without the extra complexities that language develoeprs love throwing in16:26
prologicie: interfaces, abstract classes, private/publib, static stuff, etc16:26
* treach never groked OO.16:26
guaquamost horrible thing about java is that it's inside structures can be seen in docs16:26
guaquawhen you see something like
guaquayou start to think16:27
prologicworst thing about java is it's library dependancies16:27
prologicit's a mess :)16:27
prologicand yeah16:27
prologicit's namespace structure is horrible :)16:27
guaquait's pure sun corporate hell16:27
prologicpure java without the libraries is probably not so bad16:28

prologicno way :)16:30
guaquajava as a language is okay, in my opinion16:30
aonno, qbasic :)16:30
prologicall the other students did it in C with yacc16:30
aonor even gw-basic16:30
guaquabut the whole superstructure around it :/16:31
prologicI wrote it all by hand16:31
prologiccompiler in gw-basic16:31
prologicnow that's a challenege :)16:31
guaquacompiler in brainfuck16:31
prologicguaqua, yeah like I said, plain ol java is probably okay16:31
prologicjust another C-class language ihmo16:31
prologicslightly better than C++ :/16:31
guaquahaven't had much experience with c++16:32

treachdammit, I've forgotten.16:33
prologicit's quite cool how far we've come with programming today16:34
aondamn, i should nuke my firefox profile16:34
aonperhaps search would start working again, then16:34
prologicrm -rf $HOME/.firefox ?16:34
treachprologic: c++ is as obfuscated, or non-obfuscated you make it. You don't *have* to make a mess of it just because you can. :P16:36
aonmore or less16:36
prologictreach, this is true16:37
prologicbut I find by default it's rather hard to get your head around16:37
prologicespecially the std:: stuff, namespaces, etc16:37
prologicit's a bit like java in that sense16:37
jaegerperl, on the other hand, you have to make a mess of. it's a moral imperative16:37

guaquai'm there to piss zoffix off :D16:59
knightHaving just installed php5-cgi from jaeger's repository I find that I can't get php to return anything but the following:16:59
knight/usr/bin/php: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file17:00
guaquawhich pretty childish, but still, gives great pleasure17:00
knightFor almost all arguments, including basic 'php -i' -- any ideas?17:00
treachbah, that idiot seems to have a very limited vocabulary.17:00
delinquenttreach: the drivers i downloaded  was installed as easily as documented, but ..17:00
guaquaknight: it's cgi17:01
treachdelinquent: but?17:01
guaquaso you need to output the charset...or something17:01
delinquentwhat i dont ynderstand is that the setting is Device URI: canon_usb:/dev/usb/lp017:02
*** destruct has joined #Crux17:02
delinquentand the error message while printing a test page was: "Unable to open USB port device file: No such file or directory"17:03
treachdoes it exist?17:03
delinquentthere is a /dev/usb/lp0 on my laptop17:03
delinquentany difference?17:04
treachok, and is that the computer you're trying to use?17:04
treachok, so IOW, it does exist?17:04
delinquentmy previous interaction with printers on  linux shows that the Device URI goes something like usb:/dev/usb/lp017:06
treachsounds reasonable.17:06
treachbut what I'm asking is if the device actually exists, as in "have you loaded the appropriate driver?"17:07
treachstill no good answer to that.17:07
delinquentif you mean: do i have all the drivers in /usr/lib? the answers is yes17:08
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC17:08
delinquentarent they supposed to be loaded by cups?17:08
treachbut are they *loaded*? Does the lp0 device show up in dev?17:08
treachnot the drivers for the usb port etc.17:08
treachcups deals with the printing stuff. not your usb ports.17:09
delinquentthere is a lp0 device under /dev/usb17:10
guaquatreach: gotta admire your long threshold17:10
guaquaor high that is17:11
delinquentand "cat /proc/devices" shows that lp is recognized17:11
treachthanks, I'm trying to improve. :)17:11
*** knight has quit IRC17:12
treachdelinquent: well, then if cups can't open it, and paths are correct, permissions would be the next stop, right?17:12
*** morlenxus has quit IRC17:13
treach(I'm a bit handicapped here, no printing on this box.)17:13
delinquentboth, root and my user login, are members of lp group17:13
*** blueCommand has quit IRC17:14
delinquentand 'ls -l /dev/usb' shows: crw-rw---- 1 root lp 180, 0 Feb 27 04:20 lp017:14
treachhm, I'm too tired to come up with any more good ideas why it doesn't work. Sorry.17:16
treachmy own printer is connected to a debian box, all I had to do there was run the setup script. Working printer 1 second later. :)17:17
