IRC Logs for #crux Thursday, 2007-03-01

prologicdoes anyone check these httpup repos for errors, broken links, timed out issues and the like ?00:00
Romsterbd2, private repos with no revivion control... some use cms00:00
prologicbecause quite a few of them are broken00:00
prologicyes I'm download them all00:00
Romsteri'm going over mine atm00:00
Romsterwith prtverify00:00
thrice`i thought there was a script that did it00:00
prologicnot that00:00
prologicthere are quite a few httpup repos that are broken and contain errors00:01
prologicand some with bogus files00:01
prologicthrice`, not for 3rd-party httup repos afaik00:01
prologicthat script only checks opt/core for broken links to source=() entiries00:01
thrice`ooh, ok00:01
prologicI'll email the list with a list of broken httpup repos00:01
Romsteri've found a few broken ones an some anoying web servers think Pkgfiles and httpup files are binary bah00:02
Romsterand can't view them only download...00:02
prologicviewing == download00:03
Romsterand wget the *.httpup downloads some crap and says in the file could not download or osmething i forget.00:03
Romsteryes but binary when its a text file can't view it in the browser00:03
Romsterit insists you save it to disk first00:03
Romsterbecause of stupid wrong mime type00:04
prologicwould normally be an issue with your browser's understanding of mime-types00:04
Romsterwell not all are bad most work00:04
Romsterand this is firefox
prologicyeah is it any good :) ?00:04
prologicthey prolly don't have zooming support yet00:04
prologicstill only text size zooming I guess00:05
Romsterno zoom maybe with a extension?00:06
Romsterif oyu find the name i'll try it out00:06
prologicjust inall oper00:06
prologicand hit ctrl+plus00:06
prologicff doesn't have that00:06
Romsterheh but a extension for firefox may00:06
prologicI submitted a feature request a year ago00:06
prologicthey're still apparently working on it00:06
Romsterctrl plus does text only00:07
prologicI still get emails from bugzilla00:07
*** pitillo has joined #crux00:07
prologicin opera ctrl + plus does both text and image00:07
prologicit zooms in the whole page rather nicely00:07
thrice`doesn't opera depend on qt though?00:07
Romsterctrl +/- is size of text, 0 is normal size00:07
prologic# ports -l | sort -u | wc -l00:07
prologicall working httup and core/opt/contrib/kde/gnome/xorg/xfce repos00:07
Romsteras for lack of contrib ports why don't we contact the personal repos and askt hem if they would like to join contrib?00:08
prologicCollections: 7000:14
prologicPorts:       635200:14
Romsterprologic, This extensin is built on the Firefox's Gecko engine which currently does not support real pagezoom. Full pagezoom is scheduled to be implemented in Firefox 3 with Gecko 1.9, which will be out in 2007 or later. Look forward to it for those who want the pagezoom like Opera or IE7 has.00:18
Romsterhope it supports CSS300:19
Romsteralot of new featuers i wanna use but no browser supports them yet.00:19
Romsteri had a very good idea for ports editing but i don't think anyone here be intersted as its not really KISS in code but in funcitionality00:21
Romsterthe idea being a distributed ports editor, that each can keep there own changes to the ports that are already in the repos, but heres the intersting part the majority of the edits is keept and the minority have to just keep there version diff's00:22
Romsterso if alot want a certain feature added or removed it'll migrate to the main port in the supported repo00:23
Romstershould hopefully reduce duplicates.00:23
Romster@seen drijen00:26
clbRomster: drijen was last seen in #crux 1 day, 18 hours, 32 minutes, and 14 seconds ago: <drijen> i just feel that a centralised repo is a good idea - if it can be managed00:26

tilmanthanks for the spamming12:26
xraiderthanks for calling me spammer12:26
xraiderjust wanted to know if sombody else knows what to do - since i dont think such a basic package is "broken"...12:28
tilmanwhat version of crux and util-linux?12:29
xraiderutil-linux is 2.12.r from core12:30
tilman2.2 or 2.3 test/rc?12:31
xraider2.2 but i did some ports -u and prt-get update12:31
*** destruct has quit IRC12:33
tilmani'm having a look12:34
xraiderthanks. and sorry if its no good style to just past my pb to the channel...12:35
tilmandid you mess with your kernel headers?12:38
pitilloxraider, next time take a look to topic and try to paste there.12:39
xraidermay be: /usr/include/linux softlinks to /usr/src/linux12:41
xraiderpitillo, ok. got it.12:42
tilmanjjpk: quick, we need your link!12:42
*** Viper_ has joined #crux12:42
tilmanxraider: yes, that counts as "messed with"12:42
tilman"fucked up"12:42
tilmandid you create that symlink manually?12:43
tilmanor who/what did?12:43
xraidertilman, please explain. wont tell you who linked otherwise...12:43
tilmanit's not that i really need to know anyway ;)12:44
xraiderok,... maybe you explain anyway ?12:46
tilmanthe rule "/usr/include/linux should point to /usr/src/linux" hasn't been true for ages12:47
xraiderhow do we do it today - if i may ask...12:47
tilmanreally, wtf12:48
tilmanyou removed /usr/include/linux?12:48
xraideri was installing a new kernel12:48
xraiderwith new headers12:49
tilmando NOT install kernel headers manually12:49
xraideri was reading before i did12:49
tilman /usr/include/linux contains the kernel headers that your glibc was compiled with12:49
guaqua/usr/src/linux includes linux kernel sources12:50
tilmannot necessarily12:50
tilmanbut it's still commonly found there, yeah12:51
tilmanxraider: rm /usr/include/linux && pkgadd -u glibc#whatever.pkg.tar.gz12:52
guaquatilman: if it doesn't, i've been really sloppy :)12:54
tilmandoesn't what?12:54
xraidertilman, i dont have the package anymore. i need to recompile. may that work as well?12:55
tilmanxraider: it's on the crux iso, too12:55
tilmanxraider: better not recompile glibc12:55
tilmanit would use your new kernel headers, which could theoretically screw up your system even more12:55
*** jkr has joined #crux12:55
jkrHas anyone successfully compiled the ATI drivers on CRUX?12:56
jkrI'm getting tons of compile errors, I guess my kernel is missing something12:56
jaegerjkr: might be of some help12:57
jkrIs this the sames the Pkgfile from the contrib repo?12:58
jaegerno idea, sec12:58
jaegerlooks like it is12:58
jkrBecause the Pkgfile from contrib doesn't work :)12:58
jaegerpastebin your errors somewhere?12:58
jaegerthere's one in the topic12:58
jkrHmm, where is my stupid nopaste-script..? :)12:59
jkrHehe, +1000 lines of errors :)13:04
jaegerI'd suggest asking sepen when he's around13:06
*** onestep has joined #crux13:07
jkrHmm, I found something13:07
jkrIt looks vor version-*.h, but there's only version.h13:07
onestepare you talking 'bout ati drivers?13:07
jkrGot the same problem? :)13:08
onestepsome time ago :)13:08
onestepseems like you've not done make modules_install13:08
onesteptry to remove /lib/modules/<kernel_version>, than make modules_install13:08
jkrSure I have13:08
jkrI'm here because of ipw2100.ko, ieee80211.ko and acerhk.ko :)13:09
jkrI also did headers_install because I thought there were header files missing13:10
jkrBut still doesn't work13:10
onestepati installer cannot guess that you run 2.6 kernel series13:10
jkrIt does13:11
onestepno, 'cause in that case it wouldn't search for version-*.h ;)13:11
jkrIt uses /usr/src/linux-2.6.20 if I understand the logs correctly13:11
jkrWhat can I do about this? Just rename version.h? :)13:12
onestepno, that's incorrect. I've solved this with reinstalling /lib/modules/...13:13
jkrAnd it says "assuming foo bar ... since we do have kernel 2.6.x..."13:13
onestepand, btw, what's your kernel version?13:13
onestepati don't like this :)13:13
onestepwait a sec13:13
jkrArgh :)13:14
jkrI had an older kernel before, but the IPW2100 didn't like it :)13:14
onestep(maybe I needed to paste this link to pastebin... :D )13:15
jkrNo problem, I got screen :)13:15
jkrHow do I apply that patch? patch it against the
onestepnope. first unpack package contents, then go to directory with unpacked files and issue "patch -p1 < ../kernel-2.6.20.patch"13:18
pitilloonestep, nice... I think sepen was working on that. (another problem similar with 2.6.19)13:18
onestepbut this is not related to Makefile, hmm...13:18
onestepthat's Arch PKGBUILD, somewhat similar to Pkgfile's13:20
jkrArgh, I guess I'm just too stupid to patch that13:21
jkrIt keeps asking me which file to patch13:21
onestepI can make a quick and dirty Pkgfile, if you want :)13:22
pitilloonestep, make a diff of it and send it to sepen13:22
jkrI think I patched it, but the installer still fails13:24
jkrBut a Pkgfile would be great, I'm not sure if I patched it correctly13:24
onestepokay, so I'll be afk for some time...13:25
jkrThank you :)13:25
pitilloonestep, thanks :D13:26
jkrI'll reboot in the meanwhile :) brb13:28
jkrYeah, Terminus looks really good in framebuffer :)13:31
*** sepen has joined #crux13:48
*** treach has joined #crux13:48
jkrHmm, looks like the URLs of the lilo and shadow Pkgfiles are broken13:49
treachthat's what the email adress in the Pkgfile is for. Or flyspray.13:49
onestepjkr: try this to build a module -
onestepsorry, I can't test, so if you experience errors - please notify ;)13:55
jkrSure, thank you :)13:55
onestepI'll do complete Pkgfile in a couple of mins.13:57
jkronestep: s/pkgver/version/ ;)14:00
onestepoops :)14:00
jkrAnd the link to the patch is missing in the URL list :)14:01
jkrHey, it worked! :D14:01
jkrSome warnings though, but that's normal for ATI ;)14:01
onestepnice :)14:02
jkrDamn, now I still have to make Xorg use the driver :(14:06
jkrHmm, now gl-select says ati isn't install14:08
sepenjkr, onestep, from contrib/ati Pkgfile see:14:13
sepen# required for use opt/gl-select14:13
sepenmv $PKG/usr/X11R6/lib/ $PKG/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL_so_1_2_ati14:13
sepenplease read the ati port and gl-select before14:14
jkrI removed the "exit 1" from checkInstall in =gl-select for now :)14:15
jkrBut fglrxinfo complains about a missing lib14:15
sepenI am not liable for any damages incured as a result of using your modificatons under the opt/contrib ports14:16
jkrIt wasn't in the port14:16
sepenI think your action could not be reversible14:16
jkrThat's also why it didn't find the ati package - I installed with onesteps Pkgfile14:17
sepenjkr, contrib/ati14:17
onestepsepen: gl-select not works for xorg 7, I've modified it for my machine14:18
sepenonly for crux 2.2 (kernel-2.6.15 + x11-6.9)14:18
onestepyeah, yeah, yeah...14:19
sepenonestep, is on 2.2 branch14:19
jkrsepen: That port doesn't work14:19
onestep2.6.20 fails14:19
sepenwith kernel based on crux 2.214:19
sepenis 2.6.20 available under crux 2.2?14:19
onestepwhy not?14:19
onestepI use 2.214:19
onestep2.6.20, xorg 7 and so on :)14:19
prologicCRUX isn't tied to any kernel ver14:20
prologicyou build whatever you want14:20
sepenplease if you find a bug paste it to the mantainer14:20
onestepjkr: btw, what xorg version do you use? :)14:20
jkronestep: The current one from the official ports, I think it's 7.9 or something14:21
onestep7.2 afair14:21
jkr6.9 :)14:21
prologic7.1 actually14:21
prologic7.2 will be shipped with 2.314:21
prologic7.2 is in ports now14:21
jkrprt-get info x11 says 6.9.0 release 514:22
onestepI use the version from ports... :)14:22
jkrSo do I :)14:22
onestepjkr: you'd better upgrade to xorg 7.x :)14:22
prologicthen you're ports are out of date14:23

jkrIt _is_ xorg :)14:26
jkrAt least I configured it with xorgconfig14:26
treachprologic: stop talking so much with romster. :P14:26
onesteptreach: :)14:27
treach(he's having a bad influence, apparently. ;) )14:27
onestepi have half of libs from xorg 7.x, but I like apps from 6.9, so I left it installed...14:27
onestepand wonder why it works :)14:28
prologictreach, eh why ? :)14:28
ningoso you're running 6.9 apps on a half 7.2 system?14:28
prologicwhat's he done now ;P14:28
ningowhat the fuck, is it even possible to be more broken?14:28
treachprologic: if you scroll back and read what you've written, you'll see. :)14:29
onestepningo: works perfectly, even with proprietary nvidia driver, installed not by ports... :D14:29
* onestep is kinda original :))14:29

treachprologic: ->  "wow what I morning" " ou guys"14:31
jkr(without installing new x11 versions)14:31
tilmanwhat are you mourning about?14:31
sepenonestep, you need an environment chrooted crux to test ports before installing them on your system (imo)14:32
onestepjkr: okay, so I need to change this Pkgfile14:32
jjpkx11 is xorg, the xorg repository is just the modular branch. There have been some changes from 6.9 to 7.2 but still, they remain quite the same.14:32
jjpkI think you will run into problems further down the line :D14:33
sepenjkr, we are using now on crux opt the 6.9 port of it, ati port must be run on it14:33
onestepsepen: I have two versions of crux on my machine: original 2.2 and current, with xorg 7.x14:33
*** the-ruediger has joined #crux14:33
sepenwell the best practice14:34
onestepand I'm unable to test ati driver on my nvidia card :)14:34
jkrWell, the current ati port doesn't work since it needs the 2.6.20 patch (which onestep applies in his Pkgfile)14:34
jkronestep: I'd be happy testing it for you :)14:35
sepenjkr, I need your contribution14:35
onestepI just use Radeon X550 at work... ;)14:35
sepenplease send me all you want to my mail14:35
onestepjkr: okay, wait for a couple of mins, the next revision will be ready soon :)14:35
jkrsepen: What I want? A working driver :) I could mail it if I had it14:36
sepen<onestep> sepen: I have two versions of crux on my machine: original 2.2 and current, with xorg 7.x14:36
sepenat work?14:36
sepenjkr, Im planning to use svn for depelop my ports, then I need some time to run at 100%14:37
sepenin the next days surely I'll try to run ati on 2.6.20 kernels14:38
jkrsepen: Want a repository? :)14:38
onestepsepen: at home14:38
onestepbut at work too14:39
sepenonly for development, my repo is using httpup driver14:39
jkrI think we're missing each other right now :)14:40
jkrDo you need a svn repository for development?14:40
sepennot only for crux14:40
jkrFor the ports14:40
sepenand my scripts, my personal projects and more14:41
sepenI think that a control version system is needed if you are developing something14:42
jkrSure :)14:42
onestepjkr: try this, plz -
jkronestep: Seems to work, but you should either rename that port to "ati" or patch gl-select, or gl-select won't work14:45
onestepokay, I'll rename it and make it compliant with gl-select14:46
jkrI patched gl-select, but it still says:14:46
jkrlibglx cp: cannot stat `/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/': No such file or directory14:46
jkrlibGLcore cp: cannot stat `/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/': No such file or directory14:47
onestepok, wait :)14:48
sepenonestep, jkr, the first gl-select modification for use it with ati port was made for this ati port, could be interesting if you find a solution for another driver14:49
jkrsepen: All I did was removing the "exit 1" ;)14:49
jkrDon't think that'll help others14:49
sepenI think you need to compare with some diffs the .footprint of your ati mod and the .footprint of your x11 port14:50
jkrHe, good idea14:51
sepenthat the task you need to do before nothing14:51
xraiderdoes someone know if its possible to compiler linux-2.6.20 with glibc 2.3.6? I just get a bunch of errors when im trying to make my bzImage14:51
onestepxraider: it's possible, I use glibc 2.3.6 and kernel 2.6.20 as well14:52
jkr<-- too14:52
jjpkLinux / glibc 2.3.6 here14:52
sepenxraider,  #kernel channel is also a good place for ask this14:53
xraiderthanks. im still new here...14:53
sepenyou can stay in both places at time xD14:54
jkronestep: Wouldn't it be better to just take the Pkgfile of contrib/ati and add the 2.6.20 patch?14:54

jkrAnd every key I press15:18
treach"Wireless TV"?15:19
aontreach: there are also cable tv's..15:19
treachsure, but still..15:19
jkrI have no tv port in this room, so I got this wlan-scart-expander (don't know how it's calld)15:19
aoni doubt it uses wlan15:20
aonor does it?15:20
jkrIt doesn't really, but the frequences seem to overlap15:20
treachhardly surprising.15:20
aondunno, my laptop causes all sorts of radio interference15:20
treachthat's probably due to poor {shielding,filtering}15:21
jkrWell, I can also see it on tv when someone stands between the two radio stations :)15:21
aontreach: yeah..15:21
jkrOr someone uses the microwave two floors downstairs15:22
aonheh, on high frequencies you need quite a straight contact15:22
jkrThe distance between the station is only about 10 meters15:22
treachproblem is that you get all kinds of other frequencies as well. :/15:22
aon(and low powers, presumably, too)15:22
jkrAnd my laptop is _not_ in this line :)15:22
jkrI should try another fequency for my wlan I guess15:23
treachharmonic frequencies -> bloody annoying.15:24
jkrI'm still waiting for the TV companies to make some good channls available via dvb-t15:25
jkrATM there are only public channels available, and they really suck15:25
aonyou think that tv thing would operate on such high frequencies15:25
aonlike 4.8 or 7.2GHz...15:26
jkrI don't know the frequency15:26
aonjkr: where do they do that?15:26
jkrDo what?15:26
aonhave only public channels on dvb-t15:27
jkrIn germany :)15:27
jkrThey keep promising that DVB-T will be expanded soon, but 'till now there are only about 10 shitty channels15:28
jkrSo nobody really uses DVB-T here, and therefore they don't see a reason to make more channels available via DVB-T, so less people use DVB-T ...15:29
aonwhen are they going to shut down analog tv there?15:29
jkrAnalog TV?15:29
aonwhatever you have besides dvb15:29
aonthe old transmitters15:29
jkrCable? Satellite?15:29
aoncable, probably15:30
jkrProbably never :)15:30
aon(satellites are largely dvb, too..)15:30
aonwe'll get rid of analog cable and terrestrial transmissions in october, iirc15:30
jkrMost people use cable atm, satellite is very popular too15:31
treachthat digital tv thingy is another reason not to bother with the crap.15:31
aon22 channels here15:31
aon4 on analog15:31
treachhuge hassle, no discenable gain, and much more expensive.15:31
aoni wonder why they didn't take dvb-s as the new standard15:31
aonwould've presumably been a lot easier to deploy15:32
treachwow. 22 channels of pure crap as opposed to four. "a winner is us"..?15:32
aonprovider-wise, at least15:32
jkrI don't really know anything about tv technology, I just bought that dvb-t usb dongle so I can get rid of that shitty wireless tv :(15:32
aona few of those require decryption, though15:33
aonoh, and there are two channels i've yet to see broadcast anything15:33
jkrHmm, I think encryption is another reason for them not too support dvb-t so "early"15:34
aonabout 12 are somewhat useful15:34
jkrI heard rumors that they want to encrypt all channels (even free-tv) so you have to register to receive it15:34
aonthere's one channel that shows still pictures and plays schlager15:34

onestepit's very complex, as I can see... :)16:16
jkrNot really - you can do almost everything with a small subset of the perl syntax, but that makes your script a lot more readable and bigger16:17

prologicnipuL, what's the difference between a /etc/ports/drivers/git and a gitup ? wtf is a *up ? :)18:49
prologicthrice`, git is pretty damn fast :)18:49
thrice`he means like httpup18:49
thrice`I'm guessing18:49
prologicbut since it _does_ deal with trees18:49
prologicit may not be as fast as rsync that just deals with remote files18:50
prologicwell all I'm doing is writing a driver very similar to httpup18:50
prologicbut I'm not writing a httpup script ath does things like httpup sync, etc18:50
