and`how do I give users the access to an alsa sound device?06:30
treachand`: add them to the appropriate group, obviously.06:32
treachand`: if you haven't read the handbook/faq yet, they are highly recommended.06:33
and`I have06:33
treachyou've got an "audio" group?06:33
and`how do I give members of the group audio access to an alsa sound device?06:34
treachadd it, and make your user a member of it, relogin, and you should be fine.06:35
and`actually calling the group audio does the trick?06:35
treachthe alsa devices should be owned by root:audio by default.06:35
treachyou need to create an audio group, and make your user member of it.06:36
and`k I found, I found a group audio now06:36
and`I was looking in the passwd file and it wasnt there06:36
mike_kand`: you can "grep audio /etc/udev/rules.d/25-lfs.rules" for details06:38
treachand`: presumeably because it's in "group". :)06:38
and`I found out06:39
mike_kanyone having trouble buliding parts of kde, particulary kdebindings?

tilmannew x stuff for the crux masses!09:18
tilmanit's not very w00t09:21
tilmanrandr 1.2 for the free nv driver09:22
tilmanbut i guess nobody uses that one anyway09:22
*** treach has joined #crux09:25
* raw downgraded to 6.9 anyway09:26
tilman23:38 *** raw notes that he has no linux installation at home anymore09:27
rawthat too!09:28
tilmanraw: x wise, you're out of my scope of interest :D09:28
rawI know, sorry :/09:28
tilmandon't be09:28
rawThing is, xorg 7.x can't use the bundled vga/digital port that comes with most laptops anymore.09:29
rawwich renders external lcds rather useless09:29
tilmancan't really comment on that09:31
tilmandon't have a laptop :o09:31
rawI use it as my laptop as my main workstation, because it doesn't sound like an aeroplane taking up.09:32
jaegeryou're saying xorg 7.x can't use an external display at all?09:32
treachadd more sense next time your shopping..?09:32
tilmani pondered buying one of dell's ubuntu laptops09:32
tilmanbut they don't even offer those in europe o_O09:33
rawjaeger: if it's widescreen, yes09:33
rawjaeger: usually the vga & digitalport a bundled, so the output on the widescreen lcd is not blurred09:33
treachtilman: thinkpads are pretty compatible, or at least used to be. :)09:33
jaegerhrmm... seems like a pretty important feature to be left out09:33
rawjaeger: however, xorg 7.2 somehow disregards the digital input wich in turn renders the display blurry09:34
rawjaeger: and this is not driver specific, I've tested with i810 and vesa09:34
tilmantreach: i heard some stories that they wen't down the drain since lenovo took over09:34
tilmanraw: did you make a ruckus about this?09:35
rawtilman: on the mailinglists?09:35
rawtilman: no09:35
tilmanyou could open a bug for this09:35
tilmanand yell in #xorg09:35
* raw goes yelling09:35
tilmanif that doesn't help, yell in #xorg-devel, too09:36
tilmanyou could change your nick first, and be a real ass09:36
rawwell, no. most of them know me as an ass there anyway09:37
rawno need for that09:37
rawI yell in freebsd on a regular basis, too09:37
tilmanis it just me or is patch-2.6.21.bz2 huge?09:37
rawit's you, getting older09:37
treachwait until you see the one for .22 :p09:37
tilmanok, .20.bz2 was 3.8 mb, too09:38
tilman(.21.bz2 is 4.4 mb)09:38
*** Romster has quit IRC09:38
rawtreach: this is an thinkpad09:38
rawtreach: I doubt there is additional sense to be spend09:39
treachtilman: it says 5.5 here.. .22 is 5.9MB..09:39
treachraw: ok, what model?09:39
treachah, ok, it's newer than mine.09:39
jaegerI'll play with it on my sager if I get a chance09:40
rawtreach: most laptops have bundeled vga/digital out09:40
tilmanraw: you should mention your driver + version in the channel09:40
treachMine is just vga out, didn't have any problems when I tried it.09:41
treachbut that was a a year ago or so.09:41
*** Romster has joined #crux09:41
rawtreach: widescreen?09:43
rawtreach: It's crucial to distinguish here, widescreen LCDs go nuts if the input signal is not of a certain quality09:44
rawvga is not enough to have a resonable viewing pleasure on a widescreen lcd09:44
treachok, as I said, my thinkpad is significantly older than yours, so I don't think my experiences applies. :/09:45
treach(pm 1.3 R40)09:45
tilman"URandR, a UI to RandR"09:47
jaegerguess I won't test it, then, since I only have vga-out09:47
tilmanworst app name ever09:47
jaegermight not even be stout enough to drive 1920x1200 AND 1920x1080 at the same time09:47
rawjaeger: depends on your laptop, I've a bundled vga/digital out wich looks like vga09:48
tilmanthat's a combined vga/dvi-d (or dvi-i) connector?09:49
rawdon't know what they're called but yes09:49
tilmansounds crazy09:49
*** patroclo7 has joined #crux09:50
rawit is crazy, but that's laptop manufacturing for you09:51
rawand it works well with xorg 6.9 (and openbsds version of 7.2)09:51
jaegerso it's not really a limitation of xorg 7.2?09:55
jaegeror have they patched it?09:55
*** RedShift has quit IRC10:01

treachjaeger: btw, for the next updated iso, maybe you could consider adding elilo?15:45
treachI don't know enough about macs to know if it would be pointless, just thinking about it since there was a guy asking for it a few days ago.15:46
treachyou don't feel well?15:47
tilmanvektori doesn't like elilo15:47
treachwell, how do you boot an intel mac without it...?15:47
treach(with a real os, that is. :P )15:47
*** thrice` has joined #crux15:47
tilmantreach: i have no idea, i was guessing/kidding ;D15:53
treachmmh, could be that he's a mac zealot as well. :o)15:54
tilmanoh please god no15:54
treachI guess not, since he'd have gone ballistic by now otherwise at the idea of replacing osx with crux. :D15:55
treachthat said.. a mini with crux would be nice. :)15:56
jaegeryou can use refit instead16:09
jaegerbut I've got nothing against adding elilo if there's a need16:09
tilmanneed someone to maintain a port for it first, i guess :D16:10
jaegerIf I had an intel mac I'd be happy to16:10
treachI see. Well, I was mostly thinking of the poor mac users out there left out in the cold. :)16:12
* tilman shakes16:12
jaegerI'd be surprised if any of the mac users feel like they're left in the cold but I see what you mean :)16:12
