rezzieis there any way to d/l crux 2.3 other than torrent?02:33
namenlosi don't think so (until someone offerst to host the iso...)02:34
tilmanwe'll have regular mirrors up shortly02:36

pitilloraw, it is announced at too02:44
rawyah, I'm reading02:45
rehabdollrape away D;02:46
rawrehabdoll: I'm using bittorrent02:46
rawI'm behind a WLAN right now, wouldn't be much of a 'rape' ;>02:47
rawUhm, there's something wrong with the torrent02:48
raw"Problem connecting to tracker - HTTP Error 404: No such domain"02:48
rehabdollcan you connect to ?02:49
rawworks now02:50
teKrehabdoll: yep02:51
teKit would be cool if the md5sum was included in the handbook (yes it *can* be dangerous)02:58
pitilloteK, do you mean a ref to the md5sum? at handbook's point number 3.2 there is a reference...03:00
teKI mean the actual MD5SUM03:01
pitilloteK, missunderstood it, sorry.03:02
rezziestill not ready tilman? i think i will use rehabdoll link instead...03:04
tilmanit will be at least some more hours:P03:06
teKI plan mirroring it as soon as I can monitor the consumed traffic ;p03:08
rawI'm seeding the iso03:08
*** sepen has joined #crux03:09
sepencongratulations cruxers!03:09
namenlosi would seed, too, but i don't think the firewalls of my company would allow me to ;)03:09
sepenthanks team to released!03:09
rehabdollCurrent bandwidth utilization 9.83 Mbit/s03:11
rezziei am one of them03:12

tilmanhui, late happy birthday03:41
*** sheva7 has joined #crux03:53
sepenthanks teK03:53
sepenthanks tilman03:53
teKhey, congrats :p03:54
sheva7Hi everybody. Congratulations with the 2.3 release. Just one thing. I think there is a mistake in the handbook. As fas as I know there is no more /dev/hd? devices in the 2.6.20. They are /dev/sd? now or I'm wrong?03:55
tilmanyes, you're wrong :P03:56
teKthere's a note about SCSI/S-ATA discs below this passage03:56
sheva7Ok I'll check it one more time. Thanks03:56
*** the-ruediger has joined #crux03:58
rehabdollif you use libata you'll get sd* devices for regular ide-drives04:02
teKsince .20?04:03
tilmanbut you also need to enable the new style drivers in the kernel for that, no?04:03
rehabdollbut most libata drivers are still unstable04:03
teKsounds _fun_ ...04:03
rehabdollheh, the SC1200 libata-driver seems stable.. marked with "(Raving Lunatic)" :D04:07

teKxorg was in opt, .. does this mean it is not officially supported? (as your disclaimer includes core and opt only)04:24
tilmanwhat disclaimer?04:24
teKDISCLAIMER: the ports not belonging to the core and opt collections are provided by contributors; there is no guarantee or support by the CRUX04:25
*** rxi has joined #crux04:26
treachwell. I'm not sure anyone but tilman is fully up to the task of supporting modular Xorg. :P04:27
tilmanteK: source?04:27
* rxi takes the plunge with 2.304:29
treachgotta say I'm surprised by the rate people keep pulling 2.3.04:30
rxino mirrors yet :(04:30
tilmanuploaded: 10 gb04:30
tilmani have a theory04:30
tilmanhalf the planet wants it because we have such a neat xorg environment04:30
treachI've put up 5,2 GB04:30
rxitilman: lol dont hurt your arm trying to pat yourself on your back :P04:31
rxihehe i guessed that04:32
rxioh yay 5.5k/s04:33
teKI pushed about 4MB/s via bittorrent for 2.204:33
teKrxi: your DL rate for the ISO?04:33
rxiim shaped tho04:34
rxidialup speeds ftw04:34
teKprivate messages forbidden for unregistered users darned04:34
*** sheva7 has joined #crux04:35
teKrxi: please give me your email address04:36
teK5.5k/s is a pain in the ass04:37
rxiwell thats the best im gunna get til 2am04:37
rxicos my internet connection is shaped04:38
rxigoing from 8mb to 64k sucks major wang04:38
teKwell here we have 2Mbit/s down and soemthing about 512kBit/s up for 40+ users04:41
teKand *all* E-Mailtraffic in and out for about 70 users goes via this line, too04:42
guaquawhat is the difference between rc2 and the final one?04:43
tilmanrc2 wasn't published anyway04:46
guaquai meant rc1 :F04:48
tilmanthe font issue has been fixed04:49
guaquaxorg related?04:53
guaquait's not even installed on my system, so i guess :)04:53

rehabdollcool hack though05:30
RomsterReactOS be good for the windoze ppl that want to use windoze programs that don't work on wine well.05:34

*** sepen has joined #crux05:53
namenlosningo: the 20070304 version is broken, too...05:54
namenlosthanks for the informaiton. but i think i'll wait for a new snapshot, instead of installing hg...05:55
ningonamenlos: hg is very stable and hasn't changed in the last 5 days05:58
ningothat's because 3.6 is around the corner05:58
*** rezzie has quit IRC05:59
jkrDoes upgrading to 2.3 need anything more than ports -u && prt-get sysup?06:02
jkrAnd updating the rsync-files before that of course06:04
sheva7I think that won't upgrade to the 2.3 since your ports in the /etc/ports are referring to the 2.2 branch06:06
jkrThat's why I said "updating rsync files" :)06:07
sheva7Oh, I see06:07
sheva7I beleive it will do the trick06:07
sheva7but some package replacements has to be done manually06:08
jkrFine :) *update*06:08
sheva7since the X11 replaced with set of the xorg packages06:08
sheva7and other replacements too06:08
jkrI don't have xorg installed :)06:08
ningoW00T 133706:08
jkrIt's a server06:09
sheva7look at the package replacements carefully in the changelog06:10
sheva7maybe it will work for you06:10
sheva7I didn't do the upgrade yet06:10
tilmani'd use the upgrade/setup script06:11
jkrWhere can I find that?06:12
tilmansetup on the iso ;)06:12
jkrI don't even have a CD drive06:12
treachthis is your opportunity then, to provide install floppies. :P06:14
jkrEven if I had a floppy drive, I couldn't use it since the server is located somewhere in Frankfurt :)06:15
rehabdolli upgraded my server with sysup06:15
rehabdollno issues06:15
jkrBut I could call the tech support in the data center there and make him sit in front of my server for hours, changing floppy disks :)06:15
Romsteri've done a box to crux 2.3 ages ago06:15
Romsternot much effort06:16
treachsince 2.3 was released just a few hours ago..06:16
Romsterchange to the 2.3 repu ports -u06:16
treachhow could it be "ages ago"?06:16
Romsteri got it from the repo06:16
Romsterwell month ago i changed it over06:17
rehabdolli've used the 2.3 tree for months too06:17
Romsteri built the new tool chain myself06:17
Romsterrecompiled the kernel recomiled all of core and removed old packages06:17
Romsterand installed ones that where missing. then updated all the aditional packages i had on the box06:17
treachI guess australian "ages" are short then.06:18
Romsterhow hard could that be..06:18
treachno wonder your clock is speeding.06:18
Romsterwell might of been 2 months ago or 3 i didn't set a time when.06:18
jkrAre there plans to host the source tarballs of core and opt ports on crux servers, so we don't depend on third party people?06:18
rehabdolljkr: no06:19
Romsterthe cd preaty much would do a update on built ports.06:19
rehabdollunless you can donate hardware and bandwidth :)06:19
Romsterwould be nice if it used bittorrent and everyone that used crux be a node.06:19
jkrHehe, I could host some smaller source packages, but I have only 500G traffic/month06:19
treachwould that be a problem?06:20
treachie. is there enough cruxers to cause 500GB/month traffic?06:20
tilmanas of 2.3, yes06:21
jkrI don't know :)06:21
unexistBet the problem is he don't want to use the whole traffic for Crux. ;)06:21
Romsterlol yeah06:21
treachunexist: true, but still.06:21
Romsteralot is downloading 2.306:21
Romsterjkr, you could setup a limit on that irectory06:21
treach"cause 500GB/month" doesn't mean all 500GB has to come from crux.06:21
rehabdolldo actually host the sources that are included in the cd? it would have to to actually comply with the gpl :)06:22
Romsterapache module or some other method06:22
rehabdolldoubt anybody cares though :)06:22
unexistSure, it was just a hint. ;)06:22
Romsterrehabdoll, hrmm it dosn't have to be on the cd but aviable iirc06:22
Romsterand the making of the iso is in the git repo.06:23
rehabdolli mean all the core/opt packages that are included as binary packages on the cd06:23
Romsteralong with the 2.3 ports tree and sources from the projects web sites.06:23
rehabdollthey need to be available from the distributor06:23
Romsterports tree06:23
Romsteralong with the downloads.06:23
rehabdollie: all the glibc, gcc, bash etc sources06:24
Romsteri don't see how it is as being wrong06:24
jkrA traffic limit wouldn't work, because when the limit is reached, all Pkgfiles with source URLs to my server would be broken06:24
Romsterjkr, i've had thoughts of either a mirror array in Pkgfiles or in pkgmk.conf or some sort of distrbuted sources and maybe binary packages too idea but never even bothered to do such an idea yet.06:25
Romsterround robbin dns for downloads like sourceforge do maybe *gags*06:26
Romsterthen when its over the set limit it just looks at another mirror06:26
jkrHehe, sourceforge is the reason why I asked for sources on a CRUX server :)06:26
Romsterbut thats prone to problems06:26
teKthe first step would be maintainers answering mail about broken mirrors/old versions06:26
Romsterjkr, i gathered that :D06:26
jkrteK: That would be cool, too06:27
RomsterteK, i'm always fixin anything thats wrong in my stuff if they report it on irc or mail.06:27
Romsterdunno about others.06:27
* Romster sees if my last email got anything done on a package i sent06:28
jkrIn 2.2, the URLs of shadow & lilo were broken, and I never got an answer *sniff*06:28
Romsterwas even kind enougth to make a patch for it :/06:28
* jkr is going outside smoking06:29
Romsterbad habbit :D06:30
rehabdolljust add the ip of your favourite sourceforge-mirror to your hosts file06:31
unexistActually it's a good habit to got outside.06:31
unexistrehabdoll, is there no mirror-select? Most of the SF-mirros just suck anyway.06:31
RomsterteK, with sourceforge they had fixed it so it trys another mirror but it tends to get jamed and a restart useally gets it to work.06:32
unexistAye right, it restarts and restarts and restarts..06:33
teKRomster: that's good but there are others, too.06:37
teKimho it's a) not up to crux to host the sources and b) unnecessary if the maintainers keep there Pkgfiles in sync06:38
Romsteryeah true, a mirror array in either the Pkgfile or in pkgmk.conf would be the best bet.06:38
bd2omg. people, just use gentoo distfiles. there are lots servers ;-)06:38
teKfor example, yes06:38
bd2depots patch for pkgmk is in mailing list, dated 2005, iirc06:38
Romsteri've used a bsd one b406:39
bd2yeah.. let me find it (once again ;-)06:40
Romsteron the ML?06:40
Romsterhmm is but 2005 sometime probbly hidden or not on my client now06:41
Romsterno ones updated firefox yet hmmz06:41
treachno one?06:42
tilman"no one has"06:43
*** ningo has quit IRC06:43
treachI know jaeger tested the beta stuff last night, as did I.06:43
Romsterjaeger then...06:43
treachI guess we don't count.06:43
treachRomster: ffs, it must have been announced the last few hours06:44
treachit was carrying some beta warning when I upgraded.06:44
treachA bit early to start going on about "no one updated" it.06:45
*** sheva7 has quit IRC06:45
Romsteroh i hadn't seen that i thoguht it was stable...06:46
Romstermeh fine i'll always look for myself...06:46
Romsterthan to trust others06:47
Romsterall i heard was was out.... no one said it was a beta and not stable...06:47
treachreread what I wrote above, please.06:47
Romsteryes a few hours ago it was mentained as a beta06:49
Romsteri've scriolled back and i have NOT spotted it yet06:50
Romstertoo much on my backlog..06:50
Romsterfuck looking for it, waste of effort since i know its a beta06:51
treachRomster: it's not.06:51
treachIt *was*, but now it isn't.06:51
*** raw has joined #crux06:52
Romsterbd2, hmm not a bad patch idea.06:54
Romsterbd2, i assume you keep your own version of this patch in your repo?06:55
* Romster looks for myself06:56
jkrUpgrade of expat broke elinks :(06:57
treachand a lot of other things.06:57
Romsterthen rebuild elinks?06:57
Romsterrevdep is handy06:58
treachprt-get update -fr $(prt-get depends expat)06:58
jkrI did, just wanted to get some charity06:58
prologictreach, that won't work06:58
treachI know06:58
prologicthat'll just update expat06:58
prologicbut even dependent won't work06:59
treachoh right,06:59
prologicI have noticed therae are core/opt ports and probably contirb ones too that don't list depdancices06:59
treachI forgot the awk part..06:59
prologicand just assume they're on the system06:59
prologicso it's hard to tell if something is linked to expat06:59
treachprologic: why wouldn't that work?07:00
prologicjkr, treach's suggestion will work for a small limited number of ports07:00
prologicjkr, the rest of the broken ones you'll have to find yourself :)07:00
treachprt-get dependent lists the depending ports in a nice little list..07:00
prologicyes I know07:00
prologicbut only if the port listed them07:00
Romsteri much prefer revdep07:00
Romsterand rebuilding whats broken07:00
treachah, right.07:00
prologicthere are _some_ ports that don't list _all_ their dependancies unfortunately07:00
prologicand just assume they're installed07:00
prologicI wish it weren't the case, but it is :/07:00
prologicmost likely because of the Per Liden's base ports that never had the "Depends on:" line in the Pkgfiles07:01
prologicand I think we still adopt this :/07:01
Romsteri actually think even core Pkgfiles should list dependencys and prt-get be intelagent to not list core ports07:01
jkrI have only opt and core ports installed, so I hope the dependencies are ok07:01
prologicactually it seems core ports are now starting to list dependancies, but unfortunately some of them are incomplete07:01
prologicRomster, they do now07:02
prologicjkr, if your box is fast enough, just rebuild everything :)07:02
Romsterin 2.3?07:02
prologic$ egrep "Depends on" */Pkgfile | wc -l07:02
jkrprologic: 700MHz :)07:02
jkrAnd I'm compiling gcc ATM07:03
prologicactually you could just scp the binaries for gcc glibc over07:03
prologicsave yourself some time07:03
prologicand just pkgadd them07:03
Romsterheh be about half a day for a tool chain...07:04
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC07:04
jkrWhere can I get the binary packages from (not the ISO please) :)07:05
treachwhat's wrong with the iso?07:05
prologictreach, 27% of core ports list their dependencies, 70% of opt ports list theirs07:05
prologicoh wait I think I'm wrong07:05
treach3% lists other ports deps?07:05
prologicit would seem there are inconsistencies in the Pkgfiles :)07:06
prologicsome people use slightly different variants of "Depends on:" :)07:06
prologicthough prt-get seems to be smart enough to match them perhaps07:06
bd2Romster, I'm not sure which repo you're talking about.. but there is no any (mine) repo, except pkgutils-c, in which yes, depots patch merged07:07
prologicjkr, mount -o loop /path/to/iso /path/to/iso/mount/point07:07
Romsterah its in the new pkgutils-c07:08
prologictreach, actually I"m right those figures are correct07:08
Romsterbd2, don't you have a repo of your own?07:08
prologicdid a egrep "depends" -i */Pkgfile | wc -l07:08
jkrI just hoped that I don't have to download the whole ISO, but the torrent seems to be very fast07:08
prologic28 for core, 324 for opt07:08
Romsterlooking ont he crux ports db and don't see it unless its under another name.07:08
Romstersoem of opt lsits core on the dependencys07:09
bd2Romster, nope.. I don't have httpup repo :-/07:09
namenlosningo: are you using wmii with rc ?07:09
Romsterbd2, oh why not? not bothered in having your own private repo?07:09
rawnamenlos: no07:09
prologic$ egrep "depends.*core" -i */Pkgfile | wc -l07:09
prologicRomster, no they don't07:10
bd2Romster, yup. I'm still dreaming about less restricted contrib repo. Should write motion, finally ;-)07:10
Romsterprologic, look again prt-get info libpng07:13
Romsterhas zlib is that not in core :/07:13
Romsteri'm sure there is others.07:13
Romsterbd2, heh07:13
Romstercontrib isn't that restriced now?07:14
Romsterwould be nice if more did pitch in to contrib imo07:14
Romsterprologic, your btpd port lists core ports, isn't that forbidden?07:17
jkrHas shadow been updated since release of 2.3?07:20
Romsterhrmm but not sure i hadn't used the iso07:21
jkrI did pkgadd -u on the shadow tarball on the ISO, but prt-get diff still shows shadow07:21
Romsteri'll use the iso on my desktop07:21
Romsterbut the other box is already on 2.307:22
Romsterjkr, a later version?07:22
jkrISO: shadow# | prt-get diff says: shadow     (installed) (available)07:23
Romsterand did a prt-get cache first b4 a diff07:23
jkrHmm, ok07:23
Romsternew revision07:23
Romsterto be expected they changed it since the cd.07:23
Romsteralthough rather quick.07:23
jkrERROR: Downloading '' failed.07:29
treachget it from a gentoo mirror instead.07:29
treachit's been broken a long time now.07:29
jkrBut why is the port updated and the URL left broken?07:30
treachjkr: maybe the maintainer doesn't know?07:30
treachhe might be using his local copy of the source.07:30
jkrThen someone should tell him :)07:31
rawdon't mind clicking any links, I tested them already.07:32
rawNone of them works...07:32

raw"I cannot see a characteristic feature compared with other linux distributions that would warrant an wikipedia article.08:40
teKGentoo's Services are not configured via a rc.conf, nor their network. IMHO this is just one of quite some examples that make CRUX outstanding..08:41
haaryteK: I would call crux's port system sort of unique08:41

Romstertilman, if it really bothers you just kill off what i've done and do a new branch to 2.3 off 2.209:25
Romsterif thats any easier but i gathered, notto touch other ppls ports, and not all will be needed in 2.3 anyways..09:26
jkrHehe, I'm seeding 500K/s and they're leeching ~440K/s from me09:26

Romsteri didn't branch it i made a empty 2.3 and then added some ports from 2.2 that are mine.09:29

treachwell, I guess there's not a lot of swedish speaking nigerians princes around..09:34
Romstertilman, i did ask them if i could jsut branch it then deleate whats not mine and the others can add it later but they said in #git that would be not a wise move. and i was talking to the ones that submit patches to git not the lower life of that channel i have logs if you wanna read them09:34

Romsteri was talking to jaeger alot actually...09:37
tilmanduplicating every port in each branch is dumb09:37

NineDNinei partitioned my hard drive so that hda1 is 1 gig, this is for the root, hda2 256megabites for the swap, and the 3rd partition is about 2gigs11:34
NineDNinewhen i boot the root will be read only, correct?11:35
NineDNinei mean hda1 will be11:35
treachonly if you set it that way.11:35
NineDNineis that the recomended thing to do?11:35
treachonly if you're paranoid.11:35
NineDNinelol, ok11:36
rehabdollyes, the root-fs gets remounted rw11:36
rehabdollits just as well11:36
NineDNinewhat dirs should i put on hda3, /home /var, any others?11:36
treachdon't ask how to partition, you'll get about 25 different answers. :)11:38
NineDNineok, i'll just use what i read on the web :)11:38
treachjust in general, using separate partitions for /tmp and /var is a good idea.11:39
treachsince filling / is a bad idea, which might happen if /tmp and /var is there.11:39
NineDNineok, thx11:39
rehabdolli only have /usr and /home on separate disks on my desktop11:40
rehabdollmy root uses 235mb11:40
pitilloI think that if you have some server running. (/tmp and /var can grow a lot)  but for desktop use... imo is not really necesary11:40
treachwell, if something goes wrong logfiles might grow *very* quickly.11:42
treachfor instance.11:42
pitillotreach, ummm never noticed that on a desktop. But that is true.11:43
rehabdollyeah i noticed that before i realized that SLiM logs _EVERYTHING_ :)11:43
pitilloumm nice point rehabdoll. This weekend I will take a look to slim's logs11:44

treachpitillo: My boss (back then) told me a story about a badly configured SCO server which managed to fill it's rootdisk (about 10GB) because of a broken printer cable.11:45
* jjpk <3 startx11:46
pitillotreach, SCO server... If it is a server, it is a good idea to make separated partitions11:47
pitillotreach, But I see your point too11:47
NineDNineis there any reason not to put /dev on hda3?11:47
rehabdolluhh /dev?11:47
NineDNinenever mind11:48
jjpkudev manages /dev dynamically, it has nothing to do with using a partition.11:48
* NineDNine slaps himself11:48
treachpitillo: the problem wasn't related to it being a server, it was related to the bad printer cable.11:51
pitillotreach, understanded. Thanks for that explanation.11:56
pitillo(taking note :)11:57
treachbasically it was like 9 GB of "My printer doesn't talk to me" :)11:57
pitillotreach, 9Gb is a lot of time without looking/notice that "strange" grown..11:58
treachnot if it grows as fast as the disk is capable of writing.11:58
pitillobut is a strong reason to keep it controlled under a fixed partition11:59

jjpkDepends how much bandwidth you allocate to BT.14:46
jjpkAlso depends on how many other seeds besides you are online.14:46

*** pitillo has joined #crux14:46

caraca1What i did not know was that my job was going to be to remove redhat from the servers and install xp on them15:29
caraca1Anyway my first day i arive and i see all of these unhappy csr's15:30
caraca1So im looking at these csr's terminals and i notice that everything is locked down everything no internet no nothing besides this gers system.15:32
caraca1Fast forward 5 month :) i took my time as i wasnt to sure about this downgrade from redhat to xp15:32
caraca1So xp is now on everything and all there databases ext are backed up and everthing is working fine15:33
caraca1I get paid and i am dismissed15:33
caraca12 weeks later i get a call15:34
caraca1They want me to uninstall xp and reinstall redhat15:34
caraca1Turns out that before everything was secure and locked out15:34
caraca1when they were useing redhat of course15:35
caraca1When i arive i find all of these csr's playing games surfing the net and looking at porn15:35
rawI wonder if true for CRUX as well;15:36
caraca1And half of the systems were down with viruses15:36
caraca1I tried to get them to let me install crux it was a no go they wanted there redhat 6 back15:36
caraca1So i did and that took me 5 more months and the whle exsperance cost them 47 new harddrives15:38
tilmancaraca1: what's CSR?15:38
caraca1Turns out the virus they got was some kind of hardware killer i could not figure it out the drives were totaly non responsive.15:38
caraca1Customer Service Rep15:39
jjpkTLA hell in the making :D15:39

jkrIt's "Rammstein"15:51
jjpkI was waiting for this to happen, someone always has to remind everyone about them.15:51
rawtilman: It differs from university to university and your field of study15:52
caraca1Waht ever happend to Per Liden and didnt he design the slackware pkg manager?15:52
caraca1Or was that pkgtools15:52
jjpkPer has nothing to do with slackware.15:52
rawtilman: In some cases you have almost 50/50 and in some other the faculty is like 'bah, we hate it but the government says so, let's change as minimal as possible' :)15:53
tilmancaraca1: are you an old school crux user?15:53
caraca1Wait it was the slackware installer i could of swore i seen his name in the copyright header.15:53

tilmanbusiness crap ftl, too15:54
guaquaso what does this BA mean? :)15:55
rawtilman: Heh15:56
caraca1I wasnt refering to crux being based on slackware if thats what anyone was thinking15:56
rawtilman: I was talking about 'Bachelor'15:56
tilmanwithout the hyphen really15:56
tilmanraw: :D15:56
tilmanraw: oh, hehe15:56
caraca1crux and slackware are way differant15:56
rawshitty abbreviations15:56
caraca1crux is much easyer to use and administer15:56
rawrehabdoll: ping15:57
rawrehabdoll: I need your wallpaper :)15:57
jjpkslack and crux are not really much different.15:57
caraca1I just remember a couple of years ago when i was digging threw the slackware installer i thought i seen Per Liden name15:57
jjpkI would say they have plenty in common, apart from slack using binary rather than source for software.15:57
treachcrux and *SuSE* is way different. :P15:58
rawrehabdoll: nevermind :)15:58
caraca1So does anyone know what ever happend to per and why he chose to stop working on crux?15:58
treachlack of time15:58
rawhe died tragically in a collision with an alien spaceship whilst r00ting their b0x0rz15:58
treachfull time kernel hacker at Ericsson, last I heard.15:58

rawthe mobil phone branch?15:59
treachno idea.15:59
caraca1Crux feels less bloated and cleaner15:59
caraca1to me15:59
caraca1So how was crux passed down did he just pickup and say see ya or was a leadership role passed down some how.16:01
treachraw: I doubt that.
tilmanthe clc people took over crux development16:01
treachunless you plan on making a cluster of all the S-E mobiles within range..16:01

jaeger <-- default optimizations16:06
treachtilman: it's only supposed to be used by myself, so why not?16:06
tilmantreach: i just replied to jkr's question :)16:06
tilmantreach: (i don't think setting march is -fomg-optimize in any way :)16:07
jkrjaeger: default ^= -march=i686 -pipe?16:07
jaegeras in the default CRUX flags16:07
jkrIs that "yes"? :)16:08
jaegertechnically, no, because the ones you listed are not default16:08
jaeger-O2 is included16:08
caraca1tilman i am working on a new pkgmanager & pkgfile sheme with ruby the package manager is exactly the same as pkgtools except that i added alot of new features like generateing not only crux pkg's but also slax like modules and a install sheild like gui for eather building from source or mounting pkg modules or installing binarys16:08
jkrjaeger: Ok, thanks16:09
jaegerfor reference, you can check them in /etc/pkgmk.conf16:09
caraca1I also added a bunch of new functions for pkgfile like pre up and downgrade and post up and downgrade16:10
jkrI changed -O2 to -Os, didn't remember the original flags16:11
caraca1etc ad i have been working on a crux system installer with hardware detection16:11
*** fuma has joined #crux16:12
caraca1Everything is going good except the kernel and xorg tend to disagree about what module certin devices use like my Ati rage 128 pro video card the kernel says "ati" and xorg says "r128" the correct module is r12816:13
tilman"ati" works too though16:14
tilmanthe xorg 'ati' driver is just a stupid wrapper16:14
*** raw__ has joined #crux16:14

fumausing radeon works on my notebook16:15
fumai have a thinkpad T30 with ati graphics16:16
caraca1It makes thing confusing16:17
caraca1I also modifyed  Ddcxinfo to output in yaml :) for use in monitor detection and setup16:19
caraca1When i am happy with the way things work ill submit everything as a port16:21
fumaare the KDE ports for 2.3 ready?16:22
treachthere are no kdeports for 2.316:22
treachI think you're supposed to use alans repo.16:22
fumaoh, i see16:22
caraca1Ohh i was wondering if anyone knows howto or knows were to find info on building kdrive? or tinx with modules? i think i seen something a long timago about building kdrive or tinyx with some basic drivers like r128, vesa i815 etc16:24
caraca1google is noooo help16:24
tilmani wouldn't bother with kdrive16:25
tilmanbut ./configure --enable-kdrive or somesuch should do the trick16:25
tilmani did build it once16:25
caraca1I was asking because i need to see if ruby and gtk will work with a minimal xserver for size if not then ill just strip xorg for the system installer i am building.16:27
fumaany particular reason for kdrive?16:27
*** thrice` has joined #crux16:28
caraca1No i just read about how you could include drivers for differant video card as i tried xvesa once but an intel i815 video card doesnt work with the vesa driver so i was wondering how many other onboard video cards will have this issue so i decided to research a minal xserver with optional drivers. See what im saying?16:30
caraca1But then again with crux 2.3 haveing xorg 7 im sure i could strip everything to a nice managble size16:31
caraca1Id like to keep an crux iso to under 300 megs16:32
*** jaeger has quit IRC16:41
*** pitillo has joined #crux16:42
caraca1So i have been toying with this idea for a hardware confi database were lets say and exsperance user has a nvidia quadro fx 5600 and this user builds a config sheme i guess you could call it with all they options that could possable be present for this nvidia card and uploads it to a server somewhere that holds these scripts or what ever. Now when another user wishes to install the binary driver for there same card they could download a gtk16:42
caraca1And when the user wishes to remove this driver they could run the same app and the driver will be uninstalled and the config options removed from there xorg file.16:44
caraca1Anyone have comments on this crazy idea any likes or dislikes?16:45
caraca1Am i just waisting my time or would the crux community like to see such a feature?16:45
tilmanit probably doesn't fit that well with crux' low-tech approach16:46
treachalso, not to rain on anyone's parade..16:47
treachbut every line of code written specifically for crux will need to be maintained etc.16:47
treachquestion is, is that a good idea.16:47
treachconsidering the project is already low on manpower etc.16:48
fumahow hard would it be to build crux with busybox as its base?16:48
caraca1Ahhh treach you mean these hardware config schemes would need to be maintained and updated by there creaters or someone with the same type of hardware.16:48
tilmanthe software, too16:49
treachcaraca1: no I speak in general terms.16:49
tilmancaraca1: btw, you didn't get through completely above16:50
treachas soon as anything fundamental changes there will probably be maintainence to do. Who will do that in the long run?16:50
caraca1Hmm i see you point16:50
tilman                     for there same card they could download a gtk16:50
caraca1same card they could download a gtk gui application that will parse this config scheme file and present the user with a walk threw that will download the nvidia binary driver and set there xorg config files based on the options that the user specifys.16:53
tilmanit really doesn't fit well with the crux philosophy ;D16:54
treachor mindset, or resources. :)16:55
caraca1I was under the impression that if i built some gui tools for crux then more people would use it and ubuntu would loose there distrowatch ranking.16:55
*** hp_tux has quit IRC16:55
jkrRemove all GUI apps from CRUX!16:55
guaquai have to put it blunt at this point. it's not a goal of crux.16:56
treachjkr: why? As long as we don't have to maintain them, I see no problem with gui apps.16:56
thrice`the reason most of us use cruxk in fact :)16:56
guaquathe crux of crux is keeping it simple16:56
treachwhat's that?16:56
guaqua"smart" scripts that do this, that and that are not keeping it simple, they are complicating and adding extra layers to the mix16:57
thrice`I wish I could pause bittorrent instead of quitting, to see how much of a file i've uploaded16:57
treachwhat are you using? Som mac-ified gui using version of rtorrent? :P16:57
thrice`:-)  bittorrent-curses, actually16:58
caraca1I was planing on building an allternative port like the  Contributed ISO images i didnt mean trying to merge these changes into the offical crux release lol :)16:58
thrice`(on crux)16:58
treachok :)16:58
treachcaraca1: If you decide to give it a try, there's nobody who neither will nor can stop you.16:59

fumawhat changes would I have to make in order to use a 2.4 kernel with CRUX 2.3?17:58
treachmess with glibc I imagine.17:58
thrice`glibc 2.5 doesn't allow 2.6, iirc17:58
*** pTr has joined #crux17:58
thrice`er, doesn't allow a 2.4 kernel17:58
treachthrice`: maybe you have to use windows, but most people really don't,17:59
fumaso would I be better off with CRUX 2.2?17:59
jjpk2.2 does not support a 2.4 kernel either.17:59
treachlike 90% of the people useing word are using it like some glorified typewriter.17:59
jjpkIts glibc is compiled with NPTL.17:59
thrice`I need windows for CAD software17:59
treachthrice`: CAD was created on UNIX iirc..18:00
jjpkYou have to downgrade glibc and make sure nptl is not enabled. Meaning you have to recompile everything ;)18:00
pTrSorry to bother you with such a question (but hey, I use CRUX :-) ): is there a system call to get the load of the system?18:00
treachpTr: top ?18:00
pTrthose are not really syscalls...18:00
fumajjpk, well this is for a class project so i was thinking about using uclibc to reduce size18:01
fumaor is the uclibc version of crux still online?18:01
treachpTr: ok, I thought the info was the important.18:01
caraca1I was wondering about solaris sun sent me a solaris 10 dvd and when i tried to test it i seen some boot messages and then it went into detecting and configureing my hardware and just froze up and that isstrange because evry peice of hardware i have is supported by the linux kernel.18:02
TachohpTr, sysinfo()?18:02
pTrTachoh: sysinfo()? Have to check...18:02
treachsolaris hw support is a joke.18:02
Tachohit will return load avgs and uptime iirc.18:02
Tachoh#include <sys/sysinfo.h>18:02
