tilmanvektori, aon: i think one of you wrote me a perl script to patch the fglrx binary driver. who was it, and do you still have that script?03:30
tilmanvektori, aon: maybe because you cannot resist the urge to collect things ;))03:30

*** raw__ has joined #crux03:32
raw__is there a legacy release of in the ports? anything <= 7.1?03:33
tilmannope, sorry03:33
tilmanraw__: would intel pre-2.0 make you happy, too?03:34
raw__I noticed it's not only intel203:34
raw__the whole xorg server is blasted03:34
tilmandid you try with xf86-video-i810 1.7.whatever?03:35
raw__no, becuase this here is a ati box03:35
tilmancan you describe the issue in more detail? :)03:35
raw__but I've virtually the same problems as on my intel (apart from the fact that xorg freezes the box a lot more often)03:36
raw__well, the display is blurry03:36
raw__speak of eyecancer03:36
raw__and dri just screws the box03:37
raw__so i've turned that off for good now03:37
tilmanyou could try the bleeding edge ati driver03:38
tilmanit supports randr1203:38
tilmanmaybe it can help?03:38
raw__isnt 1.3 rather bleeding edge? but I could, yes03:38
tilmanif it doesn't work with ati's randr 1.2, the ati developers might be able to help03:38
tilmanif keithp doesn't03:38
tilmanalex deucher is a *very* helpful guy03:38
raw__I was asking in #xorg and on the mailing list but without a respond so far03:39
tilmanwant me to make a tarball of the current ati-randr12?03:40
raw__I'm open to everything now03:40
pitilloanyone experience problems updating mesa3d and xorg-server in a updated CRUX 2.2?03:42
tilmando you use the xorg repo pitillo?03:42
tilmanwell, i guess you do03:42
pitillotilman, yes I do.03:43
tilmanwhat kind of problems are you talking about?03:44
tilmanbuild failure, segfaults, hard lockups, ...?03:44
pitillotilman, sorry my bad explanation. Building problems on both cases. I think it is related to mach64 driver and dri, but libdri was built fine.03:45
tilmanplease pastebin the error03:45
pitillotilman, did you see the msg at ML about ob? junk files and man stored in /usr/share/man (--mandir is needed at configure)03:47
pitillotilman, ok, one minute please.03:47
tilmani'm not subscribed to the lists atm, because of email fuckage03:48
tilmanseems they are right though03:49
tilmanpitillo: thanks for the pointer03:49
pitillotilman, no problem, thanks for your job man.03:49
*** ssimon has joined #crux03:49
raw__hi ssimon03:50
tilmanhello ssimon :P03:50
pitillotilman, here is the mesa3d problem.
pitillohello ssimon03:51
pitillo(only the last part, I think isn't needed all, but I can paste if it's necesary)03:52
tilmanpitillo: grep DRM_VBLANK_SECONDARY /usr/include/drm/*03:52

pitillotilman, here is the xorg-server problem.03:55
raw__tilman: I've found something interesting: Xorg seems to assume that my monitor is on "Port2" and that I've 2 monitors connected.03:56
tilmanshit, i forgot your tarball03:56
pitillotilman, I don't want to bore. I will read more and look for an answer at google. (yesterday I was looking and rebuilding deps but no way to solve it) I don't know what I am missing/doing bad.03:56
tilmani was sidetracked by ssimon by pitillo ;)03:56
tilmanpitillo: hang on03:56
tilmanraw__: try that with the randr 1.2 magic. if it fails, follow-up to your own thread and tell them that you have the same problem with latest ati randr-1.2 branch as of today03:58
pitillotilman, about ob with a rm PKG/usr/share/doc/{AUTHORS,COPYING,README} ,solves the junk files noticed by prtverify.03:59
tilmani will fix the junk files bug later04:00
tilmanthose XBM files shouldn't be in doc at all04:00
tilmanthey should be in /usr/share/openbox/themes/common or something04:01
pitillotilman, ok, it's not important. Thank you.04:03
tilmani don't understand the mesa problem04:04
tilmandrm has that macro, but with a leading underscore (_)04:04
tilmani don't know how it can work o_O04:04
pitillotilman, I don't understand it too (with my low knowledge it's normal)... but there were lot of problems with match64 chipset...04:07
tilmanyou have libdrm 2.3.0-1, right?04:07
tilmanto be honest, i don't want to spend much time trying to solve this04:08
tilman2.2 is ancient! :)04:08
pitillotilman, ok, thank you for your time :)04:09

tilmanaon: can you please convert to perl?04:33
tilmanaon: actually, let me try sed again04:33
*** raw__ has quit IRC04:34
sepentilman, this is the patch that you told me?04:35
tilmanit's a program to make ati's look for the dri driver in /usr/lib/dri04:35
tilmansepen: i will try to do the same with sed now04:35
sepenI can try it also04:36
tilmanokay, you do it then04:36
tilmanyou can use my ruby program to generate a reference "fixed" libGL.so04:36
sepentilman, padpadpadpadpa  what's meaning of?04:40
tilmanthe new string must be of the same size as the old string04:40

rawwow, yhafri has 1999 ports ;)04:50
pitilloquantity or quality? :)04:52
mike_kyes, there are few people having really huge amount of ports, overlaping most core/opt... but why to ignore contrib?04:55
rawbecause building firefox from source sucks ;)04:56
mike_kah, crucify it!04:58
rawbut firefox is in an unusable state, anyway04:59
rximike_k: because people want/need their own versions of different ports04:59
rawyhafri has some applications packaged that I need05:01
rawso, why go over the wuss of building your own package when you can just checkout yhafri?05:01

pitilloI don't know if this can be usefull for someone, but if you have some minutes, take a look to it. This is a report of a sepen's script wich uses prtverify and one tweak more to get info about ports.
pitilloif you think this isn't usefull ignore it and sorry :)08:04
*** onestep has quit IRC08:06
pitillocomments, sugestions and opinions are welcome08:06
pitilloI think missing dependencies isn't working properly... Tries to look under core/opt/contrib and didn't find some that are there (first problem)08:10
rawand X is gone again *sigh*08:10
tilmanpitillo: yeah, you should include the xorg repo08:10
pitillotilman, nice point... Thank you :)08:10
pitilloare FAQ and Makefiles (lot of sources at some ports) junk files too? I grep them and there are some. May be adding to prtverify can be a clue to remove not necesary files if they are junk files.08:21
aontilman: are usr/share/doc/openbox/{AUTHORS,COPYING,CHANGELOG,COMPLIANCE,README} absolutely necessary?08:37
aonand, uh08:37
aonany of that share/doc stuff, actually08:37
sepenaon, sounds that he missed it08:41
rawwhy does gimp depends on cups?08:45

pitillotilman, one question about that game... do you have a port? (or isn't needed to install that kind of games wich provides a installer?)10:26
pitillo(sorry but I don't understand, the installer add not needed stuff and I don't understand if the unistaller will remove all well, and it is not ported...)10:29

pitillotilman, ok, I was thinking that when looking for ports and didn't find anyone. Thank you for your confirmation :)10:43
sepentilman, what driver are you using now¿?10:57

pedjaWhat would it take to public/media realize difference between hackers and (crackers|script-kiddiez)?Or is anything that is not black/white too complex to comprehend?11:58
teK_public == more than 10% of interested people I guess; in general to most people computer means dark voodoo11:59

tilmanmostly because of alyssa milano12:59
tilmanpedja: mmh. is wicca == witchery?13:00
tilmani thought it was some kind of voodoo13:00
pedjaBook of shadows is actual wiccan...Bible, for a lack of a better word.13:01
pedjaIIRC, wicca 'religion' is a combination of witchcraft/new age.13:02
pedjaYou know, (crystal,aroma}therapy, dancing naked in the woods etc.13:03
tilmanseems you're right13:03
surroundernothing wrong with gorgeous girls dancing naked in the woods o//13:04

namenloshi, today i installed crux from scratch. when i make a prt-get sysup, it fails while updating pkgutils. the error log is here: . could anyone please tell me where the problem is?17:53
jaegerinstall libarchive17:54
namenlosman... i just began to search the .footprint files. thanks (this time my fingers where faster, than my brain, again...)17:55
namenlosso libarchive is not in core on the install disk... is this on purpose?17:57
*** Sprinky has joined #crux17:57
jaegerpkgutils wasn't built with libarchive until after the release17:57
namenlosah, now i remember, i think it changed in 5.30, or something, like that...17:57
*** Octal__ has joined #crux18:09
tilmanmy timing sucked on that release18:10
Octal__i have a quick question on crux.18:10
tilmanbut i didn't want to delay 5.30 till the next crux release18:10
tilmanhello Octal__18:10
jaegerperhaps we should make a new ISO18:10
Octal__what window managers does crux come with?18:10
Octal__if any18:10
tilmanthe install iso has blackbox only iirc18:11
jaegerthe ISO contains blackbox only; there are plenty of others available in the ports tree after installation18:11
tilmanbut we have most of the good stuff in ports18:11
Octal__blackbox is basicaly fluxbox if i'm not mistaken?18:11
jaegerit is similar18:11
tilmanfluxbox is based on blackbox18:11
tilmanbb is less fancy18:12

SprinkyMake sure to read the guide :)18:14
SprinkyThere's me, surrounder, and who?18:14
SprinkyWell, I met surrounder on #fvwm18:15

SprinkyI love making my own Pkgfiles in Crux18:40
SprinkyI wish Crux has a larger userbase though18:41
SprinkySo that more programs can be available without having to make Pkgfiles18:41
tilmanporting stuff can be annoying sometimes18:43
tilmanespecially if the program is from 95 and doesn't have a sane build system18:43
SprinkyI love Gentoo, though Crux is blazingly fast18:49
SprinkyGentoo has a huge userbase, and Portage contains tens of thousands of programs ready to be installed18:49
SprinkyBut I love BSD, and Crux to me is just like FreeBSD but with a Linux kernel18:50
SprinkyI tried Arch for some time, but not long enough to get Xorg running18:51
Sprinkyprt-get > pacman :P18:51
SprinkyA mix of Portage's massive amount of programs/customizeability and prt-get's simplicity would make the greatest package manager known to earth18:58

Octal__hello again21:30
Octal__i'll probaly be visting here often for questions on crux21:31
Octal__so i'll go straight to my question21:31
Octal__when I need to edit the /etc/rc.conf file, what services should I load in by defualt?21:31
Octal__this computer isn't going to be a server21:32
Octal__but i'm mainly going to be doing some coding/basic networking/other basic uses21:32
jdolancron needs sendmail, and then net.21:35
jdolanthose are the basics.21:35
jdolani would recommend running sshd (perhaps after locking it down a bit) just to get at your own stuff remotely.21:35
Octal__i'll look into locking sshd down21:36
Octal__another quick question:21:37
Octal__in the handbook, it says for SERVICES in /etc/rc.conf, that I should use "start" and "stop"21:37
Octal__can someone please elaborate?21:37
jdolan/etc/rc, the main boot script, sources the rc.conf file and iterates over what you define as $SERVICES.21:38
jdolanit calls start for each of them on boot.21:38
jdolaneach entry in $SERVICES is the name of a script file in /etc/rc.d21:39
jdolanin other words, service names are just shell scripts.21:39
Octal__so let me see if i got this correctly21:40
Octal__if i put SERVICES=(sendmail)21:40
jdolanso if you define SERVICES=(cron sendmail net sshd), /etc/rc will execute /etc/rc.d/cron, /etc/rc.d/sendmail, and so on at boot.21:40
jdolanit's much simpler than full sysv init, where you have all of those symlink directories..21:41
jdolan/etc/rc.d/rc5.d and so on..21:41
Octal__so then where does start and stop fall into this?21:41
jdolaneach service script should handle 2 (3) actions: start and stop.21:41
jdolanthey are called as $scriptname start or $scriptname stop.21:41
jdolan(restart is perhaps unofficially supported as well)21:42
Octal__thanks once again21:42
jdolancheck out /etc/rc.d/net, you need to edit it anyway.21:42
jdolanit will give you a good idea of what a typical init script should look like.21:42
Octal__yes, I have another question21:52
Octal__i curently run Ubuntu (which sucks by the way), and the /etc/rc.d/net file doesn't exist21:53
Octal__so I can't look at an example for this on my own system21:53
Octal__and this is on a laptop21:54
Octal__how diffrent, if at all, would the /etc/rc.d/net file be compared to the example file given in the handbook?21:55
Octal__i beleive that was a stupid question21:55
Octal__the /etc/rc.d/net file sets up the eth0, eth1, and such network devices in use21:56
Octal__which I can configure with iwconfig21:56
Octal__correct me if i'm wrong21:57
jaegeriwconfig for wireless, but yeah22:03
jaegeryou put the commands you want to run to configure whatever networking device you want into that script22:03

Octal___it just updated22:20
Octal___my biggest concern is installing a new kernel23:01
Octal___i have done it before23:02
Octal___it's my second biggest concern23:03
Octal___i think i should be able to install the kernel fine23:03
Octal___but more of if my wireless card is supported23:03
Octal___it wasn't when I ran slackware, and after installing a 2.6 kernel, i needed to install drivers which I can't find anymore23:04
