jaegerthey're numbered so that they're easy to see which goes where (top to bottom, then left to right)10:11
thrice`there is montage out of imagemagick.  otherwise, google turned up hugin - haven't tried either, but the latter looks ok10:11
*** Rotwang has joined #crux10:12
jaegerI'll give those a try, or maybe autostitch can do it10:12
jaegermontage sounds like it might be perfect, just gotta install it and try10:15
thrice`yeah, imagemagick has some neat tools10:17
jaegerI've only used the least of its features in the past, things like convert, display, and mogrify10:18

blokkieJust installed crux with 2.4 iso12:23
blokkieall working nice !  (this on a lenovo 3000 n100 laptop)12:23
jaegerglad to hear it12:23
blokkieit's the first time I try crux after 2 years . Glad the system has not changed a lot. The install procedure is still one of the best and straight forward installs I've come across12:24
blokkiejaeger:  is there a particular reason it comes by default with lilo and not grub ?12:25
*** lasso has joined #crux12:26
jaegerblokkie: both are available, actually. install whichever you like12:28
thrice`i think lilo is in core, and grub is in opt, but both on the iso12:29
blokkieok , I'm gonna try grub . I tend to forget to run lilo after editing /etc/lilo.conf12:29
blokkiethx for the hint!12:30
blokkiegoing to reboot now . Brb12:31
*** Man0l0 has joined #crux12:35

* blokkie waves to RedShift 12:36
RedShiftwell well12:36
jaegerI don't actually use grub-install but I would guess that's correct12:37
RedShiftwho we have here :-D12:37
RedShiftblokkie: how did you end up here?12:37
jaegerI use the shell, then "root (hd0,2)"; "setup (hd0)" or whatever my drives are12:37
blokkiejaeger:  yeah, so I think . The hd is going crazy but I'm gonna let it finish12:37
blokkieRedShift:  well .. I'm on a quest for a distro that I can _control_ more12:38
blokkiejaeger:  besides those 2 commands , anything I should add after that ?12:39
jaegercheck the grub readme, it has lots of information :)12:40
RedShiftblokkie: crux is pretty fine distro if you like compiling stuff yourself12:40
* blokkie nods and should have not asked.12:40
blokkieRedShift:  well yeah , I've used it for a while 2 years ago and I liked it. But then I did not have a lot of time to deal with the os.12:41
RedShiftI hate compiling stuff myself that's why I use archlinux12:42
Man0l0blokkie, user grub-install --recheck /dev/hda12:42
blokkieWell .. grub is working nice . I did a reboot ; all ok12:43
RedShift /mr burns12:44

RedShifthttpup sync fluxbox12:48
RedShiftI don't know how up to date these ports are12:48
RedShiftrehabdoll: you still working on those fluxbox ports?12:48
thrice`we need a fluxbox port in contrib :(12:49
*** sepen_ has joined #crux12:49
RedShiftblokkie: add that repo to your prt-get.conf and you should be able to prt-get fluxbox12:51
* RedShift points at the respective manpages on how to do that12:51
blokkieRedShift:  ok12:53
