thrice`you have to tell it to compile, yes ;)13:21
westcubegeekyou mean ./configure && make && make install13:22
tilmanmore like "prt-get install foobar"13:22
thrice`no, it uses ports13:22
RedShiftwestcubegeek: ofcourse, if you're installing software you always need to intervene, the computer can't read your thoughs13:22

nipuLhmm, i wonder if i can use qemu + axp cdrom to chdsk this hard drive18:05
nipuLs/axp/a XP/18:05
nipuLit worked, yay18:29
nipuLanother step closer to a windows free workshop18:29
RedShiftnipuL: well that's not true, you still used windows to chkdsk18:30
RedShiftyou could have just as well inserted the wintendo XP cdrom and booted from that18:30
nipuLyeah, but i didn't have to reboot my workstation18:31
nipuLjust plugged the drive into my usb adaptor18:31
nipuLbut then a technician in a windows free environment wouldn't have much work to do18:33
nipuLif it wasn't for spyware and unstable operating systems, i'd be out of a job ;)18:33
RedShifttrue that18:35
RedShiftyou should how much money we made out of that business18:35
RedShiftbut I wouldn't return to that business without a big fat wage18:36
RedShiftone more than one occasion I pulled my hair out18:36
RedShiftmostly because of the computer intellect of the customers18:36
RedShiftif you say type this in the address bar and start typing in the google search box, you know where you're at18:36
RedShiftthen when you say you want them to type in the address bar, "where's the address bar?"18:37
nipuLi had one case where i had to spend 5 minutes explaining that "right click" meant18:38
RedShiftthe telephone is just hell18:38
RedShiftyou can't get anything done and the phone keeps on ringing18:39
nipuLor one lady tried to convince me it was IMPOSSIBLE to read a had drive formatted for mac without a mac computer18:39
nipuLso i made a bet with her, i would "try" and if i couldn't i would pay her, and if i could she would pay me double18:39
RedShiftdid she pay up?18:40

*** treach has quit IRC22:22
Romsterraid 5 will be a bit slower for reading/writing and more chance of a sigle drive failing, but raid 1 will be slow for writing too.22:25
Romsteri recken raid 5 if you asked me.22:25
drijen_raid 5IMO22:25
drijen_stripes one, leave the rest22:25
drijen_problem is, if you lose the card, you lose the drives too22:25
