*** aspetos has quit IRC07:29

rxi_oh the joys of building non open source apps08:31
treachhaha, you mean as opposed to the joys of getting proprietary crap running..?08:32
Romsteryes | someapp08:33
rxi_no no that comes later once the port is finished :)08:33
rxi_its not too bad .. atleast they have tech support i guess08:34
treachrxi_: oh, sorry, I'm not fully awake, I missed the "non". :p *oops*08:34
Romsterhmm for a daemon that hasn't got a shutdown option sending sigterm is the safest approch?08:36
Romsteror sigquit?08:36
Romsteror some other one..08:36
tilmanstart with SIGTERM08:37
tilmanif that doesn't help, SIGKILL08:37
tilmanmaybe you should add a short delay (1s or so) before using SIGKILL08:37
tilmanin case the clean shutdown stuff in the daemon takes some time08:38

jaegerthat's encouraging08:49
tilmanpatch for what?08:49
jaegerread the "note that due to a mistake on my part" part of the release message08:49

aJaxsi added -ignoreABI to /usr/bin/starts's defaultserverargs. nvidia works fine, but now kdm doesnt start on boot. i have to invoke startx on user. any ideas ?14:13
tilmantry that
tilmanmessing with xinit scripts seems popular, i have no idea why14:14
rehabdollIgnoreABI should go in serverflags, right? if so it still didnt work for me14:15
jaegerI never got it to work in serverflags14:15
tilmanserverflags should be correct14:15
tilmansepen: can you update contrib/ati? :D14:16

jaegerbeen a long time, heh20:02

aJaxsjaeger, you suggested adding -ignoreABI to kdmrc, cant find kdmrc. Also adding -ignoreABI to /usr/bin/startx does the job but just cant initialise the kdm daemon. would adding -ignoreABI to kdmrc make a difference ?22:00
jaegerkdm starts with its own X command line, so theoretically22:01

*** prologic has joined #crux22:25
prologicX won't start :/22:25
prologicsomething about ABI not supported, and to use -ignoreABI22:25
prologicI put: Option "IgnoreABI" "1" in the ServerFlags section but it still complains22:25
aJaxsprologic, that only works for some people22:26
aJaxstry adding it to /usr/bin/startx22:26
predatorfreakaJaxs: or.22:26
predatorfreakDo startx -- -ignoreABI22:27
predatorfreakWhich is the proper bloody way to do that.22:27
predatorfreakHacking /usr/bin/startx is wrong.22:27
prologicit's slim I need to add the option to in this case22:27
prologicapparently I need to rebuild my nvidia driver though22:27
predatorfreakprologic: Huh?22:28
prologicand re-set the glx drivers22:28
predatorfreakYeah, you do.22:28
predatorfreakAlso, apparently, gl-select needs to be extended to now.22:28
predatorfreakOtherwise you've got conflicts there.22:28
predatorfreakTBH, I just reverted xorg-server to 1.3.BLAH and decided to stick with it for now.22:29
*** aJaxs has quit IRC22:29
prologicI'm getting all sorts of errors22:30
prologicmouse driver not found22:30
prologic"null" is not a valid keyboard driver22:30
prologicand with startx -- -ignoreABI, it still complains about my video driver not being ABI spported22:31
predatorfreakmouse driver needs to be rebuilt.22:32
predatorfreakkeyboard driver needs to be updated, blah blah.22:32
prologicI'm just gonna rebuild all of xorg down22:32
