j^2do any of yall have a machine just dedicated to watching logs go buy?09:36
jaegernot at the moment... I've considered it09:38
j^2i'm starting to also, i have now 4 logs that continiously change that i need to keep an eye on, i'm just not 100% sure the best way to do it09:39
j^2just looking for input that's all09:39
prologic4 terminal windows ?09:40
j^2it seems fesable09:41
treach1 viritual desktop. :P09:41
j^2jesus i cant spell :P09:41
tilmani'd buy another machine09:41
tilman+ 4 displays09:41
prologicI used to use 4 terminal windows once09:41
prologicwhen I _could_ see09:41
j^2my only problem is the damn powersaver that x kicks in09:42
namenloshave you considered multitail?09:42
prologicturn off the screensaver09:42
prologicand the powersaver option in xorg09:42
treachj^2: "cat-of-nine-tails" :p09:43
prologicwell you can tail multiple files with just the regular tail anyway09:43
prologictail -f file1 file2 file3 | ccze09:43
namenlosprologic: thanks, didn't know that...09:43
prologicyou can :)09:43
j^2ah but they are on multiple machines :(09:43
namenlosbut are they mixed up?09:43
prologic$ sudo tail -f /var/log/messages /var/log/mail | ccze09:44
prologicj^2, sshfs mount their /var partitions to a local desktop space :)09:44
prologicthen tail them all :)09:44
j^2prologic: nice09:44

jaeger@seen thrice`09:55
clbjaeger: thrice` was last seen in #crux 11 hours and 24 seconds ago: <thrice`> told you he cheats :)09:55
tilmanis there a script that checks my PKGMK_SOURCE_DIR for old tarballs?10:01
tilmaneg i'm sure i have up to 5 old tarballs of x crap lieing around10:01
tilmanfinding the old ones will take too mcuh time :P10:01
treachI think so, not sure what it's called though.10:01
prologicI"m not aware of one10:04
namenlosi would use oldfiles...10:04
namenlosor i didn't get your question...10:05
jaegeroldfiles from prt-utils sounds like maybe what you want, yes10:06
tilmanah, i see10:07
tilmanit doesn't exactly do what i want, but it's good enough10:08
namenloswhy? oldfines | xargs rm deletes all old files10:09
namenlosif you want only the source dir, i would put a grep in between...10:10
tilmaneg that one isn't old10:10
tilmanit's NEWER than the one in ports10:10
* jaeger shakes his fist at ftp.gnu.org10:11
namenlosah, ok...10:11
tilmanjaeger: wassup with it?10:11
jaegerhaving trouble downloading from it, that's all. such a spotty mirror10:11
jaegerI've started keeping distfiles on another machine because of it and a few others10:11
tilmanjaeger: hope it gets better soon, i remember switching quite a few ports to some months ago o_O10:15
treachcool, but I'm not certain announcing stuff with the word "YOU ASS" is the best way..10:15

caraca1I keep seeing stuff like  xfmedia <defunct> & firefox <defunct> etc13:48
caraca1I even have xfrun4 still in memory and it hase been hours since i shut it down.13:49
tilmanso your kernel is being weird and not killing off zombies?13:49
caraca1I guess you could say that i am useing the default crux 2.2 kernel and the only changes i made were just enableing alsa for my sound card.13:51
tilman2.2 :D13:51
caraca1Yah Crux 2.2 kernel version
caraca1tilman are you a ruby programmer?13:53
tilmanoh, crux 2.2. i thought you meant linux 2.2 :)13:53
caraca1Do you ever use gnome-ruby13:54
tilmanonly the gtk part though13:54
caraca1Ahh i was going to say is it just me or does Ruby/GtkMozEmbed never work.13:55
caraca1Im going to just update my kernel and see if that solves the problem.13:57
caraca1Kernel seem's promising.13:58
caraca1tilman one last uestion do you think we will be seeing crux 2.3 any time soon?13:59
caraca1weeks or months?13:59
tilmancaraca1: i hear sip built the final iso already ;)14:00
caraca1I m surpised that crux isnt as popular as ubuntu i think crux's package manager and lay much much better14:01
caraca1Do you have any idea were i might be able to find that iso?14:02
jaegerit's not posted yet14:02
caraca1Im looking at your guys port. And i can tell that jaeger like beryl :)14:04

caraca1Doesnt matter i dont have anything anyone would want anyways and even if i did have a security breach good luck finding anything i tend to like to exspearament with my system and screw everything up untill i have to reinstall.14:10
caraca1Besides im hidden hehind 3 hardware firewalls and i have nothing running other than x14:11
caraca1But if anyone does get in just dont move anything around!!14:12
caraca1Brb im going to rebuild my kernel and login as a normal user so when i come into this room i want feel like a 27 year old newb that has been useing gnu/linux for 10 years and people will wont to chitchat.14:14

prologicisn't bootsplash not officially supported by hte kernel still ?15:56
jaegernever used it, myself15:56
JKnifeprologic: yeah =\15:57
prologicprobably a good idea why then15:57
prologicweren't you the one that wanted ports of the gtk patch to look more like MacOSX ?15:58
prologicwhy and why ? :)15:58
* JKnife shrugs15:59

jaegerthrice`: no funky files in / for me, by the way16:38
thrice`jaeger, really?  out of curiosity, I only added p5-xml-parser to deps, and added --disable-perl to configure, on a stock 2.3 install (rc2)16:39
thrice`the same files treach had in his .footprint16:39
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC16:40
treachthrice`, fixed now. :P16:40
thrice`did you just do Gaim* to /usr/lib/perl5/.. ?16:40
treachat first, yes.16:40
treachthen I just decided to disable everything I don't need in that port. :P16:41
thrice`ah, awesome - did you determine which one caused it ?16:41
jaegerthrice`: I'm just using the contrib port, which has --disable-perl in it16:41
treachI guess it's perl related, but I was way too tired to find out how things worked exactly.16:42
treachIt was like 4 or 5 AM here when I finally called quits on that particular project..16:42
thrice`jaeger, that's very strange, as the only difference is avahi then, I suppose16:42
