surrounderah nevermind, read it on jaeger's site :)08:21
*** Viper_ has joined #crux08:23
rehabdolltreach: where did you read that openbsd thing?08:29
tilmantheo's reply rocks08:38
treachit's stupid, and childish.08:39
treachI somehow get the feeling copyright isn't important unless it says Theo de Radt©08:39
tilman"So next time, talk to the specific people, so you don't come off08:40
tilmanas being mean, ok?"08:40
tilmanfunny, i thought michael buesch's original mail was pretty nicely written08:40
treachLook who's talking..08:40
treachthat's all I have to say on the subject. :>08:40
tilmanmh, yeah08:41
tilman> Maintaining whitespace and variable names.08:43
tilmanCopyrighted whitespaces and variable names, you mean, right?08:43
aonthe surname has two a's08:44
tilmanIt's too late.  He has given up, because of your first mail.08:45
tilmanHe has already deleted his work from our tree.08:45
tilman("He" being the openbsd person who stole the code)08:46
tilmanoh my08:46
aonppl should stop using gpl so problems like this wouldn't arise08:46
prologicwhat's the big deal anyway ? it's gpl'd code ?08:47
prologicI only read the original mail from Michael :)08:47
tilmanmaybe you missed the first sentence08:48
tilmanman, i could quote from theo's mails all day08:48
treachprologic: the big deal is that you don't relicense other peoples work.08:51
treachwhereas theo's point seems to be, "don't tell anyone, now, look you made the poor guy cry!"08:52
Romsteryo prologic08:52
treachand then he proceeds to call the copyrightholders all kinds of names.08:53
treachI guess he's in love with the code-thief.08:53
aonlesson learned: don't commit if you initially use badly licensed code08:53
prologicdon't know why they just didn't keep the origianl license08:54
aonbecause it's bsd08:54
treachyou can't go that way.08:54
aonstuffing gpl'd code into the kernel is a disaster08:54
* Romster laughts08:55
aonNo definitions were found for laught.08:55
aonSuggestions: - Make sure all words are spelled correctly.08:55
* tilman chuckles08:56
tilman> That is a complete lie.  You called him a thief, and PRESUMED that he08:56
tilman> did it on purpose.08:56
treachof course he did.08:56
tilmanoops, did i just copy GPLs source code? i had NO IDEA!08:56
aonagreed tho, theo is taking it completely wrong :)08:56
tilmanwas there a COPYING file? oops!08:57
tilmanall this talk about human beings08:57
aoni woudln't be surprised if there even wasn't one08:57
aonah, there is08:59
aongood for them, then :)08:59
tilman> You are a very poor example of humankind.09:00
rxiwell i know your easily entertained :P09:01
tilmanhe's right09:02
rxiwho theo?09:02
tilmanjeff garzik09:02
*** jaeger has joined #crux09:03
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o jaeger09:03
tilmanthis whole thread is so great09:04
tilmanwhy did gpl-persons ask bsd-persons to relicense their bsd-code?09:05
tilmanthey could just have taken it :P09:06
tilmanlegally, too, etc09:06

tilmanmmh, or do they use the bsd license w/ the advertising clause?09:08
jaegerI wonder occasionally if openbsd isn't around solely so theo can fight with someone for the rest of his life09:09
jaegernever seems to matter which side is right :P09:09
tilmanhow can ANYONE be THAT fucking retarded?09:10
tilmanit just doesn't seem POSSIBLE09:10
aonjaeger: openbsd is a lot better in some ways, tho :>09:10
jaegerthat may be, my point was that he seems to *always* be fighting with someone09:12
rximaybe he has half of canada stuck up his arse09:12
treachaccusations about copyright being based on white space, variable09:12
treachgah, is he an idiot, or just pretending?09:12
jaegerI imagine that'd be painful09:12
aondunno, there's a lot of code merging going on, though09:13
treachaon: was that related to the whitespace stuff?09:14
aonno, it was related to *always* fighting with someone09:14
treachah, *phew* :)09:14
aonalthough perhaps that just means that they're not *always* fighting with the same people09:14
jaegerit amazes me that they would actually delete code instead of work out some petty bullshit09:15
tilmanwell, if i had been threatened to death like that...!!09:15
tilmanoh wait09:15
tilmanit was a mistake! :'(09:15
treachcry me a river.09:16
aonyeah, doesn't make a lot of sense09:16
aonperhaps it'll come back someday :)09:16
jaegerI'd be surprised to learn the author doesn't have a copy of it somewhere09:16
treachwhat amazes me the most is that theo apparently doesn't understand how much damage he's doing to the project by defending this guy.09:16
treachit's perfect fud ammo for ms etc.09:17
rxi yeah doesnt paint a pretty picture of a "community"09:17
treach"aah, you know, those obsd guys, they aren't very concerned with copyright, are they?"09:17
treach"It would be a petty if your servers turned out to be running illigal code, wouldn't it?"09:17
treach"sure you'd not like a $699 license?"09:18
aonnow for something more serious:
* tilman glimpses over it09:20
tilmanseems to be bullshit as well09:20
tilmanmy desire to read bullshit is fullfilled for today09:20
tilmani don't think you meant to link *that*09:23
tilmanright-click the node in the tree to copy the real link09:23
tilmanjavascript fun ftw09:23
treachgha. sorry.09:23
tilmanyeah, that one's nice09:24
rxigod can you guys flog that dead horse any longer? :P09:25
aoni bet at least until 1900EEST09:25
tilmanrxi: are you an openbsd fan/user/lover, too? ;)09:26
Romsteryeah i'm just sitting here reading all  this bullshit :p09:26
rxitilman: lol no09:26
rxii dont mind netbsd09:26
Romsterwhy not do something constructive... oh wait i'm reading crap and not doing anyhting constructive too09:26
Romsterflame war :P09:27
aonwhy not go port some drivers :)09:27
jaegerit seems like the biggest reason NOT to use any OS is its users and developers :P09:27
*** rxi_ has joined #crux09:27
*** rxi has quit IRC09:28
tilmanjaeger: mmh, i'm not sure i wanted to advertise an os that theo leads ;)09:28

*** the-ruediger has joined #crux11:26
rehabdolldid you report it upstream?11:29
deus_exrehabdoll: It's a known problem, advice is 'use zip then.'11:33
rehabdolllol, nice workaround11:35
rehabdollresponsible devs :)11:35
deus_exYup. :)11:37
rehabdollthat openbsd-thread rocks11:40
rehabdollit just lacks jörg schilling for a spectacular flamefest11:41
treachgod damned morons. I never thought those guys would piss all over the foundation of their and others work.11:42
rehabdolli actually really like theo, but i think this is a bit ridiculous :)11:46
rehabdollstill, a fun read!11:46
deus_exFor  little rpm vs deb fun, read this
rehabdollwell esr is just retarded11:47
treachrehabdoll: it's not as much that he's redicolous as he's totally boneheadedly wrong, and just down right stupid.11:49
treachapparent *everything* is the problem, except that someone distributed gpl code in an illegal way..11:49
rehabdollyeah, hes a *bit* over-defensive11:50
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC11:51
treachhe's handing out fud on a plate, as I said before. *groan*11:51
tilmanis that alan cox?11:52
rehabdollyeah :D11:52
tilmannever seen a picture of him without the red hat11:52
rehabdollinstead. This message from ESR really rubs it in. I've always used11:52
rehabdolldeb systems and was only recently totally, I mean totally, blown away that11:52
rehabdollis was not possible to upgrade a CentOS 3 something system to the latest11:52
rehabdolli really need to stop marking the text i read11:52
tilman"I'm sure they will be delighted to have you"11:59
tilman --ac11:59
tilman        "That was said by Eric Raymond who belongs to another movement"11:59
tilman                        - Richard Stallman11:59
tilman!! <311:59
deus_exI give up.Either faad2 is too broken, or I'm too stupid to build it( or both).I'll try something easier, like...updating qt3... :)12:01
tilmanthat reminds me of the qt debug build adventure12:01
deus_exqt3 or qt4?12:02
*** the-ruediger has joined #crux12:02
deus_exIt didn't go well, I presume ? :)12:03
deus_exI used cptn's qt4 port, and it built fine (not on 2.3, and not debug version, though).12:06
deus_exFew apps that I wan't to play with require qt4 (Sound Visualizer, for example).Building qt4 is on my TODO list, but not just yet.12:10
