IRC Logs for #crux Friday, 2007-06-01

prologichey guys00:02
prologicproblem installing 2.3 on an AMD box00:02
prologicI just get "L" when booting00:02
prologicany suggestions ?00:02
prologicI tried "lilo -mbr" and it just goes "LILO. Loading CRUX" and that's it00:03
teK_L: The first stage boot loader has been loaded. If LILO stops here, there were problems loading the second stage boot loader. This is usually accompanied by an error code. The common problems at this stage are media problems or incorrect disk parameters specified in your lilo.conf file.00:05
teK_not THAT helpful, I guess00:05
nipuLcheck your lilo.conf00:06
prologicthe lilo.conf is perfectly fine00:06
*** pitillo has joined #crux00:06
prologicI put root on hda200:06
prologicand there are no error codes displayed00:06
prologicit just stops at ":"00:06
prologic"L" rather00:06
prologicI highly suspect a bad disk here :/00:06
prologicalthough it's brand new :)00:06
nipuLwhat about image?00:45

nipuLi wish i hade made my squid cache it's own partition, this is taking forever to delete02:18
prologicanyone know of any decent inexpsneive dedicated hosting ?02:19
prologicflexible enough to install crux on02:19
nipuLi'm running crux on a vps02:19
nipuLvery cheaply02:19
rawdoes someone here know how I can adjust screen brightness in xorg?02:20
nipuLas long as customer service isn't a requirement their ok02:20
nipuLraw xgamma02:20
prologicurl ?02:21
rawnipuL: that's for gamma adjustment, isn't it?02:23
rawnipuL: gamma != brightness02:24
nipuLworks for me02:24
nipuLlets not get into semantics02:24
rawnipuL: no _IS_ a difference wether I tune gamma or brightness. That has nothing to do with semantics02:25
prologicnipuL, who you host with ?02:25
nipuLxgamma -g 1.5 , then tell me your screen's not brighter02:28
rawbecause I tuned the green component02:29
rawor all of themm02:29
rawanyway, tuning gamma isn't the same as tuning brightness02:29
mike__nipuL: what is the exact link on that vps hosting (alowing to install a distro of choice)?02:47
*** sepen has joined #crux02:56
sepenmorning all!02:58
sepenhmm jack-audio-connec.... fixed, thanks Romster03:00
Romsteri was messing with sed but yeah too much effort :/03:01
Romsterso needs to learn Makefiles more.03:01

pitilloRomster, did you read my message yesterday?03:36
Romsterpitillo, ah the one about you'll try the new port?03:39
Romsterwhat was the results of that?03:39
pitilloxD can not find logs from yesterday...03:43
pitilloRomster, works really well. Using gl-select-x11r7 (only changing the checkinstalled port and version) can be used too with your 71xx port and it did the libs changes well too.03:44
pitilloRomster, thank you for your job :)03:44
Romstergl-select-x11r7 is the old one its now gl-select03:47
Romsterand i need to edit that.03:47
Romsteronly changing the checkinstalled port and version < hmm03:47
pitillolooking to it (I dont remember wich I modified, I think you are in true and I changed gl-select from opt)03:48
pitillowhat is the meaning of hmm?03:48
Romsterhmm = thinking.03:48
Romsterits a sound. as in a virbal geasture03:49
pitillowell I explaint it a bit better: the function checkInstalled() did not find your port, changing the grep var works. And the NV_VER too... modified to pick the correct version 71xx03:50
prologicanyway to convert a pdf to an image ?03:50
pitilloah ok, sorry. I thought it can be some acronym. :)03:50
namenlosnew ati driver is out...03:50
pitilloprologic, does convert work? (I can not test it before asking you) convert file.pdf file.jpg03:51
pitilloprologic, only was an idea and it did not work here, sorry03:53
Romsterpitillo, ah i see, hmm i got a idea for a simple way to patch so it checks for all 3 versions.03:54
prologicconvert works03:55
pitilloRomster, that is the first I thougth but add a new one with nvidia fuction code duplicated is not a good way IMO. I think the best way is to modify the nvidia function to add support to legacy too (71xx and 91xx)03:56
Romsteryeah that's what i intended todo.03:56
pitilloprologic, true, here I am rebuilding imagemagick with the correct gnutls port. (it will work)03:56

prologicpkgutils has a bug in it05:48
prologiceither missing libarchive05:48
prologicor something05:48
treachprologic: are you kidding?05:48
prologicfresh 2.3 install and can't upgrade pkgutils to the latest version because of compile errorss05:48
prologicno I'm not05:48
prologicfresh crux 2.3 install via cd05:48
prologicports -u05:48
prologicand sysup05:48
prologicand it won't upgrade05:48
prologicI am manually installing libarchive now05:48
prologicthat fixed it05:49
prologicso it's missing that dep05:49
treachI had never expected you to make that error..05:49
treachno, it's not missing.05:49
treachprt-get depends pkgutils05:49
prologicthen why did the upgrade not work ?05:49
rxi_wasnt there something with sysup that misses it?05:49
treachprologic: because it's a NEW dep.05:50
prologiclibarchive should have been installed05:50
prologicand it wasn't05:50
prologicI installed _all_ of core form the cd05:50
jjpksysup does not install dependencies05:50
pitilloprologic, take a look to the ML, there is a good explanation/discussion there05:50
prologicno I reaqlize that05:50
prologictreach, said it just there05:50
prologic"it's a new dep"05:50
prologicI'm not even on te ml now :/05:50
prologicgot lazy with my subscription05:50
prologicand got kicked off :)05:50
pitilloarfarf xD05:51
prologicbut yeah I realize it's a new dep05:51
jjpkThe pkgutils shipped with 2.3 did not use libarchive.05:51
prologicand the cd is probably out of date :)05:51
jjpkIt came later on.05:51
pitilloprologic, you always have the choice of using the webML to at least review it.05:51
prologicwhich is why the sysup doesn't work05:51
prologichowever that's an inherent problem with sysup ihmo05:51
prologicsysup should be intelligent enough to work this out05:51
prologic*meh* :)05:51
jjpkNo it should not.05:51
treachit's an inherent problem with people who doesn't check the deps. :D05:52
prologicor check the mls05:52
prologicor get lazy with their subscription :)05:52
prologicI get too many emails05:52
prologicno time to read any of them :005:52
treacha classig boobietrap iow. :)05:52
prologicgawd I hate sf05:52
treachboobytrap, I mean. :]05:52
prologiceasily solved obviosuly :)05:53
prologicbah fuck'n :/05:53
* prologic kicks sf05:53
prologicwe should technically release a new cd05:53
prologic2.3.1 :005:53
jjpkOverkill for such a simple thing.05:54
prologicbut still05:54
prologicanyone have a working mirror list I can chuck in /etc/hosts ?05:54
prologicthis is stupid :/05:54
pitilloprologic, are you using the one provided at handbook?05:57
prologicdidn't know there was one05:58
treachprologic: works for me05:58
nipuLthat's the australian mirror05:58

prologicdownloaded it from a different mirror06:29
prologicsunsite's is broken06:30
ultra06:08 < prologic> pkgutils has a bug in it06:47
ultraI just had that yesterday06:47
ultrait looks like they added a new dependency on libarchive06:47
Romsteris it that hard to not realise it's libarchive?06:48
jjpkIt is not entirely obvious.06:48
Romsterif a Pkg failes look at the depends on line.. for one..06:49
Romstersometimes they alter between versions.06:49
Romsterpkgutils should bailout if libarchive isn't installed really. saying missing: libarchive06:50

cptnI guess he means pkgutils the software06:58
jjpkI realize that.06:58
*** thrice` has joined #crux06:58
jjpkBy the time the next release is done, the problem should be removed.06:59
jjpkRight now it is awkward for people who do not follow the mailing list.06:59
prologicor have no time to :/07:05
Romsteror don't look at the depends on line..07:06
prologicdont' be so harsh :/07:06
prologicI am 90% blind ya know07:06
Romstereasy thing todo a prt-get deptree pkgutils and see a dependencys not installed...07:06
prologicbesides I was merely making conversation earlier anyways - not really complaining or anything07:06
Romsteron a package that fails.07:06
Romsteri always do that as a first step unless i've made a package and go hunting for a dependency it needs.07:07
Romsterprologic, ya is ok, but i do see the trap for others.07:07
