*** Romster has quit IRC03:43
*** tilman has joined #crux04:04
nipuLRoomster: yep04:05
*** Roomster is now known as Romster04:08
Romsterthen i dunno some package was updated for DST changes.04:08
*** mxq has quit IRC04:11
nipuLi guess it's not that important, reboots don't occur that often04:11
pitillois correct that a core/opt port has missing files? (footprint missmatch)04:18
nipuLyeah i got a few footprint mismatches, but i just ignored them04:19
pitillonipuL, but is strange that core ports has missing files...04:21
pitillomay be mistmach footprint with new files... but with missing?04:21
namenlosyou mean the gettext package?04:26
nipuLif you build it with emacs installed you get some new files04:27
pitillonamenlos, yes04:28
namenlospitillo: had some archive files missing, too04:28
pitillonipuL, I got some missing files building gettext port.04:28
nipuLyeah i got that too04:29
pitillowell, then may be filling a bug must be the option.04:29
pitillocan someone verify if there are theses files?  usr/lib/libgettextlib.a , usr/lib/libgettextsrc.a I want to check that it isn't my fault04:33
namenlosiirc that are the files. but wait a minute, i will rebuild again.04:34
pitillonamenlos, ok04:35
namenlospitillo: usr/lib/libgettextlib.a and usr/lib/libgettextsrc.a04:40
namenloswe got the same04:41
namenlosmaybe the maintainer forgot to commit the .footprint file04:41
*** RedShift has joined #crux04:42
pitilloyes, or may be builded with some other package installed, but not sure. I will fill a bug to see if it can be checked. Thank you for your test too :)04:43
* namenlos is fighting with cvs2svn and svnadmin load...04:44
*** RedShift has quit IRC04:49
Romsterpitillo, i answered that *.a files way earlier05:11
Romster*.a is static library safe to ignore as long as *.so dynamic files are present. but the footprint should be fixed, or add --enable-static or remove --disable-static if it is there if you are concerned.05:12
pitilloyes Romster, I understood it but I filled the bug to correct it from the root. Thank you :)05:30

*** deus_ex_ has joined #crux09:56
namenlosafaik the ati driver is not released for 2.6.2309:56
*** pedja__ has quit IRC09:56
namenlosif you are using the propetiary drivers (nvidia and ati) you should be patient with upgrading xorg or the kernel.09:56
mxqnamenlos: you suggest to try with 2.6.22 kernel?09:57
sepencould be the problem, here with runs perfectly09:57
sepenbut ati sucks09:57
namenlosmxq: yes09:57
namenlossepen: nvidia got the same problems09:57
mxqok i will try09:57
sepenthanks namenlos for helpUS09:58
sepennamenlos, but I think nvidia drivers are better than the ati support09:58
namenloswe don't know whether this was the problem.09:58
*** mindshift has joined #crux09:58
sepenmore supported hardware for the same driver09:58
namenlossepen: hopefully it will get better now when they opensourced the drivers09:58
sepenyeah 100%09:59
namenlosbut a friend of mine (who is deeper int this thing) said, that there are still parts missing.09:59
namenlosbut i don't know for sure.09:59

*** Brian|lfs has joined #crux21:37
Brian|lfsdoes anyone know how to kill frozen virtual consoles in crux I don't see a process associated with them to kill them21:38
*** rxi has quit IRC21:42
nipuLhave you tried using lsof to find what's connected to the terminal?22:00
clickonceWtf, doesn't work... it puts wget in an endless loop22:01
nipuLyes, their round robin servers are a constant headache22:02
clickonceSo, in affect, ports doesn't work at all...22:02
nipuLno, sf doesnt work22:03
nipuLmost people just override the dns address in /etc/hosts22:03
nipuLeg: dl.sourceforge.net22:03
clickonceYeah, so I did.. that's when I end up in the loop22:03
nipuLwell turn it off then22:04
nipuLor try a different server22:04
Brian|lfshey sorry22:05
Brian|lfsI didn't see you anyone respond to me in the irc room22:05
Brian|lfsI tired lsof with no luck22:05
nipuLwhy do you need to kill the terminal?22:06
nipuLhow many users are there?22:06
Brian|lfsbecuase there froze22:07
Brian|lfsand I want ot keep my good uptime22:07
nipuLdo you _need_ them?22:07
Brian|lfsjust 122:07
Brian|lfsbe nice to have them22:07
Brian|lfsmore curosity22:07
Brian|lfsit would seem that crux doesn't use getty or agetty22:08
Brian|lfsso I'm confused not sure what its using22:08
Brian|lfsalso I have antoher question22:09
Brian|lfshow do I update all my ports22:09
clickonceports -u22:09
Brian|lfsI read the documentation and it says to use prt-get sysup which says there are no updates22:09
clickonceand crux is using agetty22:09
Brian|lfshow can that be if the system has been updated in a few months22:09
clickonceBrian|lfs: that's the system, not the ports22:09
Brian|lfsoh lol22:10
Brian|lfsahh lol22:10
clickonceprt-get sysup will recompile and update your system, not your ports tree22:10
Brian|lfsthat makes sense22:10
clickoncedo ports -u && prt-get sysup and it'll start working22:10
Brian|lfssorry for my ignorance I only did the install on the CD my firend did all the configureing and installing the programs remotely lol22:11
Brian|lfsshes installing away she will be going awhile lol22:16
clickoncemost likely :)22:17
nipuLit would cool if pkgmk would let you define multiple package sources, then i could plug in my package repository at home and let it fall back to my local one22:19
Brian|lfsmy friend and I are looking with lsof we don't see agetty at all22:19
nipuLis the fronzen terminal a tty or a pty?22:20
Brian|lfsit should be a tty its non X22:21
nipuLps aux | grep agetty22:21
nipuLcheck the status codes22:22
nipuLwhich tty is frozen?22:22
Brian|lfsno results22:23
nipuLwhat does /etc/inittab say?22:23
Brian|lfsthe one wihen you hit f1 f2 and f3 are22:23
Brian|lfsbut ps aux don't show22:23
nipuLthe contents of /etc/inittab22:24
clickoncetry "init q"22:24
nipuLyou should have something like c1:2:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux22:24
clickonceand then "init u"22:24
nipuLbut one for each tty22:25
Brian|lfsno I don't see that22:27
Brian|lfsjsut the one for running the grep command22:28
clickonceBrian|lfs: What does this command give you: "cat /etc/inittab | grep agetty"22:32
Brian|lfswe figured it out22:32
Brian|lfswe did /sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux &22:33
Brian|lfs and it restored the consoels we did it to22:33
clickoncejust reload init22:34
nipuLso where are your ttys in inittab?22:35
Brian|lfsit said permission denied when I did a grep on them22:36
Brian|lfsand I"m root22:36
nipuLls -l22:36
