blokkiehi all03:26
Romsterhi blokkie03:29
blokkieHi Romster  , how are you doing on this beautiful sunday ?03:29
Romstereating dinner right now <<03:30
blokkieI'm still strugling with the dma for my hd03:42
Romstermaybe use the generic driver and just set the dma on in hdpram then.. i have no other ideas,04:10
rehabdolltry other cables04:14
Romsterit's a laptop so i'm guessing it plugs straight in?04:20

DarkNekrosgood morning everyone ;)04:27
blokkieRomster:  via hdparm  it says  : no permission04:29
blokkiewhich indicates I don't have the good kernel04:29
blokkieso I cannot set it via grub or hdparm04:29
blokkienow I'm gonna try again with the arcchlinux .config  and  set  root=/dev/sda  instead of /dev/hda04:30
Romsterblokkie, as root?04:30
blokkiemorning DarkNekros04:30
blokkieRomster:  yes as roott04:30
* Romster shrugs 04:30
blokkieit's a known issue04:30
Romsteryou really need to read up on others with that ide model04:31
blokkieif the driver is not good .. hdparm can'tttttt set it as well04:31
Romsterdriver issue..04:31
blokkieI know the issue is known for kernel 2304:31
blokkiebut I'm trying , can't blame mmmme for that :)04:31
Romsterwell goto 22?04:33
Romster23 does have alot of changes so maybe 2.6.22.x will work for you.04:33

Rotwangim trying to compile with some patch06:04
tilmanRotwang: try "man 4 evdev", maybe the name of the option changed06:05
RotwangI hadnt found anything interesting there06:07
tilmanRotwang: you could also use xorg-xf86-input-mouse, no?06:08
Rotwangi tried but it loads evdev06:09
Romsterrehabdoll, ah yeah i never thought to ask blokkie if he was using the libata06:12

jkrIs there anything to be done to upgrade to 2.4 beside change 2-3 to 2.4 in the port files?07:08
blokkieRomster:  you here ?07:09
*** vico has joined #crux07:10
RyoSjkr: ahoy07:10
RyoSnope i guess not07:11
RyoSi just did that upgrade and seems to work fine for me07:11
Romsteryeah i'm here brb though.07:13
jkrAlright, thanks RyoS07:14
RyoSno problem07:14
tilmanjkr: boot from the 2.4 cd and select 'upgrade'07:14
jkrtilman: I'm upgrading a remote host07:15
jkrVia ssh07:15
tilmangot a rescue system or somesuch?07:15
*** Rotwang has joined #crux07:15
jkrUhm, will I need rescue..? ;)07:15
tilmanno idea whether upgrading via ports only is safe07:16
tilmanit's better to pkgadd -u the packages from the cd07:16
tilmanat least the core system07:16
jkrHmm, the updated ports don't look too critical to me07:16
tilmanglibc? gcc/07:16
rehabdolli had no issues on two out of two boxes for what its worth07:16
jkrI'll start with some non-critical ports and think about it while they're compiling :)07:18
*** boe has quit IRC07:19
Romsterjkr, you haev to throw on core recompile the kernel reboot recomple everything else.07:24
Romsteri've updated a box remotely not the safeist thing tobe doing.07:24
jkrSo first prt-get -fr update /usr/ports/core/*, then rebuild the kernel, reboot, then prt-get sysup?07:25
Romsterah no way07:26
Romsteryou'd have to rebuild the tool chain first if you were todo that07:26
Romsterswitch to the 2.4 branch ports -u, read the wiki on upgrading the tool chain. then fr the rest of core.07:27
jkrWhere can I find that wiki page?07:28
Romsterjust as easy to do a for p in core/*; do pkgadd -u $p; done off the cd and pkgadd without the -u for misisng packages and remove the old packages.07:28
Romsternot sure ware it is i'll upload my text file i got of it.07:28
jkrIs the reboot in step 3 safe?07:33
Romsteras the kernel onyl needs itself and glibc that's just a precaution to make sure it's using the new bintos/gcc you could skip the reboot.07:35
Romstergah i an't type...07:35
jkrIs step 4 neccessary? :)07:38
*** ickers has joined #crux07:41
ickersHello all. Does anyone know if a i586 port of CRUX 2.4 planned?07:43

tilmanmany people are using crux on their desktops09:15
sepenarvin_, yeah!09:16
mwansaRyoS, did ya get gnome-vol-man working..09:16
arvin_i use freebsd for instence09:17
RyoSmwansa: yes09:17
RyoSbut dont ask me how..09:17
Romsteryep using crux on my desktop just boring kde here.09:19
RyoSi recently banned qt* and everything depending on it from my crux install09:21
sepenjust use gnome, e17 or xfce09:21
RomsterRyoS, don't like the idea of QT?09:21
tilmanor no desktop environment at all09:22
tilmanopenbox ftw ffs09:22
sepentilman, or antiright09:22
Romstertilman, have you messed with new tk/tcl yet?09:22
RyoSRomster: i hate it09:22
RyoSopenbox++ ;)09:22
tilmanRomster: i've installed it09:22
sepentilman, antiright is based on gtkshell app09:23
Romstertilman, me too but not used it yet.09:23
tilmani'll have a look09:23
jkrZSH + 1280x1024-Framebuffer, sometimes Fluxbox :)09:24
sepentilman, antiright <- gtkshell <- libantiright09:24
mwansafluxbox ftw :)09:24
RyoSjkr: framebuffer wins :P09:25
jkrYup :)09:25
tilmanlol, those jpeg antiright screenshots are so fugly09:25
sepentilman, I ported some antiright deps but not sure if I really do fine this job x|09:26
sepenjaeger, ping09:29
jaegersepen: what's up?09:31
sepenjaeger, could you add libpanelapplet to gnome ports?09:31
jaegerwhat does it do?09:31
sepenjaeger, Im trying to port this
sepenbut it needs libgnomeapplet as dependency09:32
jaegerwould it not be better to put that into contrib, then? or the xfce repo? seems bloatish to have to download the gnome repo for that port09:33
sepenjaeger, I think we had this discussion some days ago09:34
jaegerwe might have, I don't recall09:34
sepenthere're some xfce ports that depends on gnome repo09:34
sepenintltool, vte, ... they aren't so specific for xfce or gnome imo09:35
sepenalso I think orbit2 its the same case09:36
sepenwhats the correct action to perform, all these ports on contrib? opt?09:36
jaegerperhaps that'd be proper but I wouldn't move them without a lot of testing, want to know exactly which ports are truly gnome-independent09:37
jaegerthe gnome ports used to be in contrib a long time ago and they were messy as hell... that's why they're in a separate repo now09:38
*** arvin_ has quit IRC09:40
jaegeris there a separate package for libpanelapplet? gnome-panel includes it09:42
sepenbut no idea what is the correct package from gnome to list as dependency09:45
sepen1 seg, Im doing a paste09:46
jaegergnome-panel, most likely09:46
sepeninstalling it09:47
sepen.... opencdk url with problems09:51
sepenjaeger, fixed after changing http to ftp in his source line09:51
sepentilman, colors rocks
*** mwansa has quit IRC10:10
*** dokpm0 has quit IRC10:16
Romstersepen, are they your colours or off a guide?10:22
thrice`Romster: were you the one with kde4rc2 ports ?10:23
Romsterthrice`, yes10:24
thrice`are they posted anywhere?10:24
Romsteri haven't tested yet other than built.10:24
Romsterwill be on tuseday or so when shortcircuit is back up10:24
Romsterthrice`, there still in testing stage.10:24
Romsterbut builds fine.10:24
Romsteri haven' ran it yet.10:24
thrice`that's OK.  I was going to do a fresh 2.4 install, but figured I could try breaking this one first :)10:24
Romsterif you like i'll tar it up for you and dcc you the packages?10:25
thrice`not if it's too much trouble.  I'd love to test, though :)10:26
Romsternot much trouble.10:26
*** tri has quit IRC10:26
thrice`Romster: thanks :-)10:28
Romsterhas kde3 stuff inthere too just ignore that, might be misisng some ports.10:28
Romsterand the man pages are in the wrong location.10:28
Romsterbut it all builds. if ya misisng a package let me know it most likely be in my private repo.10:29
Romsterthrice`, i wanna know how it goes <<10:29
thrice`of course :)  give it a few days, and i'll let you know10:30
Romsteri didn't port all the programs but it's not hard to add more.10:30
Romsterta :)10:30
Romstersome of that took me some time to sort out10:30
Romsterthrice`, you might wanna try also after if that all works is to edit qt3 so it installes to system and remove qt3 and install qt4 with qt3 support, been meaning to try that, actually i should mess with it in qemu.10:32
thrice`Romster: I get bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.10:32
thrice`does it untar for you?10:32
Romsteri did tar cjvf10:32
thrice`huh.  maybe just tar it, without bz2?10:32
thrice`wait, got it10:33
thrice`bad copy from my server to desktop10:33
Romsteryeah it works10:34
Romstertar xjf file..10:34
thrice`yeah, worked when I re-copied :-)10:34
thrice`so, just prt-get depinst kdebase, and go from there?10:35
Romsteri think there is --install-scripts10:35
thrice`sounds good - i'll let you know.  thanks alot10:35
Romsternot sure if i made any have a check10:35
thrice`yep, I have that by default10:35
thrice`although I heard cmake reduces the compile time down quite a bit10:36
Romsterif ya misisng something jsut let me know it'll be in my private repo.10:36
Romsterseems to help and is a lot neater.10:36
Romsteri'm dreading cmake not always having a set location for man files.10:41
Romsterleaves nearly everything upto the programmer.10:42
Romsterso if they don't want other paths set they don't set them.10:42
* Romster thinks i might have to use mv10:42
Partitionhm, have CRUX locale-gen?10:44
Partitionmust I recompile glibc for this?10:44
*** predatorfreak has joined #crux10:47
sepenPartition, did you read the handbook?10:48
PartitionI`am reading it now.10:49
Partitionbut I don`t see that.10:49
predatorfreakPartition: See what?10:50
Partitionhow can I make locale-gen.10:51
RomsterPartition, all the locales are there you need to set the locale in /etc/rc.conf10:51
sepenPartition, read about nls on crux10:52
predatorfreakRomster: rc doesn't set locale by default.10:52
predatorfreakYou'd need to hack it to do that.10:52
predatorfreakPartition: By default, CRUX just makes all locales during glibc build.10:53
predatorfreakand installs them all.10:53
*** dokpm0 has joined #crux10:53
predatorfreakAgain, you'd need a modified glibc port to change that.10:53
Romsterhmm might of been in /etc/profile then..10:53
predatorfreakRomster: Yes, /etc/profile is the proper place :)10:53
Romsterall Partition needs todo is set LC_ALL=...10:53
predatorfreakRomster: <Partition> how can I make locale-gen.10:54
Partitionpredatorfreak: thanks :)10:54
predatorfreakHe's asking how he can make locales on demand.10:54
predatorfreakI think.10:54
Romsteras i said there all made10:54
Romster[03:51:58] <Romster> Partition, all the locales are there you need to set the locale in /etc/rc.conf10:54
Romsterbut it's ment to be set in profile.10:54
predatorfreakRomster: Yes, I know, I'm saying you'd need a modified port like I have to generate them on-demand.10:54
Romsterwhy on-demand ?10:55
Romsternever had a need for other languages so i don't know the NLS stuff.10:55
predatorfreakRomster: I don't need a billion locales for countries I can't even find on a map! :P10:55
Romsterneather do i hmm10:56
predatorfreakI just need my en_US/en_US.UTF810:56
Romsteryou got a modifyed port..10:56
dokpm0I'm now running CRUX 2.4!!  This was my first CRUX upgrade and I only hit a couple of minor snags.  Did I misfire when running rejmerge or does the upgrade overwrite /etc/rc without warning?  I added a couple of lines to my /etc/rc script to scan for and activate LVM VGs.  Also, there doesn't appear to be a 2.4 xfce repo.10:56
sependokpm0, 163.Red-83-54-50.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net10:56
Romsterdokpm0, you most likely pressed 'u' to update than you should of pressed 'm' to merge changes.10:57
sepensorry the first line I paste you10:57
predatorfreakdokpm0: I mailed the list earlier, but one thing you might want to do is add SYSLOG=sysklogd to /etc/rc.conf.10:57
predatorfreakand I think the default is to not overwrite any differing files in /etc/10:57
predatorfreakI could be wrong though.10:57
sependokpm0, 2.4 for xfce its now available10:57
Romsterpredatorfreak, correct10:57
Romsterdokpm0, would have to of used update10:58
Romsterin rejmerge, use merge instead unless you want to lose your changes, or keep to keep your exisitng file and not merge in new changes.10:58
predatorfreakRomster: I love how when my patch got merged they noted that they'd need to update the handbook and add a note to the release notes about the new variable in /etc/rc.conf, but then they forgot when they finally released 2.4 :)10:58
Romsteroh man...10:59
*** RedShift has joined #crux10:59
predatorfreakRomster: That'd be a bad ideaer, the changes are minor, but you'd wind up starting sysklogd twice if you don't merge the new changes.10:59
predatorfreakIt's only like 3 lines though.10:59
predatorfreakDeleting the old shit that started sysklogd in /etc/rc.11:00
dokpm0Romster:  Ok, I figured I just misfired.  There were several files that I kept the existing copies on.  I just misfired with /etc/rc.  Oh well, it was easy enough to fix.  I only had to add two lines to the new one.11:00
Romsterdokpm0, i've contempated seting up hg in /etc/11:01
Romsterthen could do hg revert .11:01
predatorfreakRomster: Just use git you masochist! :P11:01
Romsterif you mess up.11:01
Romsterfor that tiny job no..11:01
Romsteri use hg for my private repo11:02
predatorfreakI use by-hand editing for my repo and git for my shell script projects :)11:02
sepensvn here11:03
Romsterused to use svn now it's all mercurial11:03
Romsteronly git i use is for contrib.11:03
Romsterand the ocasional other clone of a project.11:04
thrice`Romster: this is trying to build qt3 and that right ?11:06
thrice`Viper_: pinentry also has a bad url :-)11:07
predatorfreak <-- Aw, so Chuck Norris isn't God?11:08
*** onestep has quit IRC11:08
thrice`Romster: also, where is your private repo>?  I don't see it on portdb11:09
Romsterthrice`, it'll be up when shortcircuit is up11:09
Romsterit arn't dead. just dormant.11:09
Romstershould be tuesday but might be later in the week.11:09
Romsterdidn't think i had much useful stuff <<11:10
thrice`oh, ok.  this is reporting a couple missing packages (raptor and jasper11:10
sepenthis articles was translated to spanish too11:10
Romsteris that all i'll throw them in11:10
thrice`um, from kdebase, at least11:10
Romsterk kdebase is the main program.11:11
Romsterhang on a tic11:11
thrice`yep :)  that's all I started with11:11
thrice`hm, no way to skip qt3?11:12
Romsterif you edit qt4 and make it install i hadn't done that yet..11:13
*** teliti has joined #crux11:18
telitiHello! Just a question: My machine is an Athlon64 X2. Crux-2.4 is a i638 distribution. If I compile my kernel now, do I use "Athlon64" or "i386" as architecture?11:19
sepenteliti, the announcement says CRUX 2.4 ISO image for the i686 architecture.11:21
jaegerboth will work. athlon64 is probably the best bet11:21
jaegersepen: ok, I'll take a look at the deps11:22
sepenjaeger, Im using prt-get depinst11:22
telitithank you!11:22
Romsterteliti, i686 or althon11:22
telitibut athlon64 could make problems?11:22
jaegernot likely11:22
telitiahh thx!11:23
Romsterusing the later will be faster code on that cpu but not portable on other cpus11:23
jaegersetting that option will not suddenly give you a 64-bit system11:23
Romsteri686 is a generic11:23
jaegerif you for some reason plan to use that very same kernel on a bunch of different machines, generic is good. if not, athlon64 will be fine11:24
telitithank you11:24
Romsteri go by jaeger's word on that.11:24
Romsterthat's exactly how i knew it worked.11:24
Romstersame with the kernel when you turn on 'more genetic cpu optermisations'11:25
Romsterso the kernel is portable instead of stuck to the cpu type selected.11:25
Romsterthrice`, hmm i'd like to edit qt4 an nuke qt3, you up for editing that beast or you want me to do that?11:26
thrice`Romster: I've gotta run out in a few.  can look tomorrow, though :)11:26
Romsterand make sure you enable qt3 compatability kde4 requires that.11:27
thrice`Romster: I think jue has a good qt4 port too11:28
Romsteri made the qt4 to work along side qt311:29
Romsteri don't see it in portsdb11:30
thrice`jaeger: i'm getting that hal-info can't build, saying I need hal 0.5.10 installed (which is)11:32
Romsterstrage that's being a pain for everyone?11:32
Romsterbut myself.11:33
thrice`er, scratch that.  hal-info is trying to build WAY before hal11:33
jaegerthrice`: no idea on that, haven't run into that one yet... might rebuild hal11:33
Romsterall i did was install hal-info then build new hal11:33
thrice`on a prt-get depinst gnome11:33
Romsterdidn'y have any problems.11:33
thrice`er, why is hal-info a dep of hal, yet it won't build without it? o.O11:34
Romsterthrice`, you have recent udev installed?11:35
Romsteranother unrelated issue.11:35
Romsterbut messes with hal/hal-info11:35
thrice`yes, on a full 2.4 system11:35
Romsteruninstall hal and see if hal-info will build/11:35
thrice`hal actually wasn't installed.  it's trying to build hal-info before hal, which it can't do11:36
Romsterso maybe the dependencys should be the other way around and everyone should list hal-info instead of hal11:37
jaegerI may end up reversing the deps because people can't seem to work around them, even though that's what upstream wants11:37
Romsterjaeger, i never got any issues myself but seems odd.11:37
thrice`jaeger: can you build hal-info without hal installed?11:37
Romsteri'll test in a chroot.11:37
jaegerbut like I've said a few times, upstream intends it this way. I think it's stupid but there you have it11:37
Romsterseems to be a cicular dependency?11:38
thrice`aah, heh11:38
jaegernot circular, just backwards11:38
thrice`ok, worked manually :)11:38
Romsterforget how they do it and reverse it.11:38
thrice`sorry, was the first I had heard of it jaeger.  figured it was upstream instead of you :)11:38
Romsterupstream are doing something funky..11:39
*** morlenxus has quit IRC11:45
tilmanteliti: what cpu you use when compiling the kernel isn't related to what your glibc/rest of the system was compiled for11:45
thrice`jaeger: thanks, got it now.  so, theoretically, you compile hal for hal-info, remove it, and rebuild it against hal-info ?11:46
telititilman: thank you, I already thought it would be like you said, but wasn't sure11:47
jaegerit doesn't really build against, it's just additional stuff... you don't need to rebuild11:47
tilmanteliti: you can also use -march=athlon64 in CFLAGS, btw ;)11:47
tilmanpredatorfreak: thanks11:49
tilmanpredatorfreak: stop disappearing for weeksm damnit ;)11:49
tilmanrejmerge will take care of it11:50
telititilman: but does that change anything because the libs are 32bitish?11:50
*** Lukasz has joined #crux11:51
LukaszHi evryone11:51
tilmanteliti: it tells gcc to generate code that's tailored for the CPU. whether or not the libs are 32 bit or 64 bit doesn't matter11:51

predatorfreaktilman: See reply.12:12
LukaszIm glad I got ati :)12:14
tilmanme too12:14
LukaszI think evrery distro uses ati :)12:15
tilmanmost distros allow you to install any driver you want12:15
RomsterLukasz, maybe you'd want to try the 64 bit crux then12:16
Romsterbut things like flash won't work.12:16
LukaszI might try it12:16
Romstermight on the multilib crux6412:16
Romsterlinks section on the site.12:16
LukaszLinux is better the windows vista atm12:16
LukaszI got Windows Xp atm12:17
Lukaszoops thnx Romster12:17
LukaszIs it possible to use ntfs disk on Crux?12:17
bitwiseautomated teller machine?  i know they had xp point of sale machines...(POS)12:17
LukaszLike to read it12:17
Romsterprt-get info ntfs-3g12:18
tilmanLukasz: reading ntfs works these days12:18
tilman*writing* to it is more complicated12:18
bitwiseLukasz:  compile ntfs support in your kernel12:18
Romsterand writing12:18
predatorfreaktilman: Feel free to bitch at me any time if there's any other work that needs to be done, always happy to lend my spare time.12:18
tilmanno idea how the state of things is there12:18
tilmanLukasz: in general, there's not much that's crux _specific-12:18
predatorfreaktilman: ntfs-3g works perfectly in my experience.12:18
tilmanif you can write to ntfs using redhat, you can with crux, too12:18
tilmanpredatorfreak: i'll copy over your blurb on syslog now12:19
predatorfreakLukasz: Install ntfs-3g.12:19
LukaszIm don't got the disk yet12:19
predatorfreakMount the partition with ntfs-3g.12:19
*** jdolan has quit IRC12:19
LukaszIm getting for christmass12:19
predatorfreakand you've got full read/write.12:19
predatorfreakThat's probably how Red Hat do it.12:19
Romsterprt-get depinst ntfs-3g12:20
predatorfreakIn-kernel NTFS support is pretty bad.12:20
tilmanntfs-3g is the fuse one?12:20
Romstermost stuff will install fine like that.12:20
predatorfreaktilman: Yes.12:20
*** jdolan has joined #crux12:20
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o jdolan12:20
LukaszCause I got a big disk12:20
LukaszBut Im gonna uise a 2.5 exteran for crux12:20
Romstertilman, it's very good.12:20
Romsternuke  windows don't need it <<12:21
Romstersoudns to me you gonna dual boot vista and crux *quivers*12:21
LukaszIs it possible to install grub on external instead of internal?12:21
predatorfreakRomster: I think it's actually BETTER than Microsoft's NTFS driver in terms of performance :P12:21
Romsterpredatorfreak, lol..12:21
predatorfreakI hit higher speeds transferring in Linux than I do in Vista.12:21
tilmanLukasz: sure, the question is whether your BIOS can boot from usb devices12:22
Lukaszyes it can12:22
Romsteri saw it ages ago had a ntfs disk and went ooo i'll try this one.12:22
LukaszI had linux before :)12:22
Romsterall the other ones i've tryed sucked12:22
tilmanpredatorfreak: unposible! .oO(userspace vs kernel driver)12:22
predatorfreaktilman: I've address that load of FUD before.12:22
LukaszWell Im gonna jet ouata here for now12:22
Romsterits' 'inpossible' <<12:22
*** Lukasz is now known as Lukasz-away12:23
predatorfreakroliveira_: IMPOSSIBLE.12:23

predatorfreakIt's impossible.12:23
Romsterback to spelling class12:23
predatorfreakYes, bad Romster!12:23
Romsteri hate english <<12:23
predatorfreakRomster: So do I.12:23
predatorfreakSadly, it's the only language I know12:24
tilmanRomster: i was kidding. thought it was obvious12:24
Romsterand english is the only language i know too <<12:24
tilmanpredatorfreak: we have spanish lessons in #crux-es ;)12:24
Romstertilman, yeah i got the kidding part jsut felt like corecting anyways but i botched that up12:24
bitwisetilman: perhaps he misunderestimated you12:24
predatorfreakRomster: Well, perhaps not ONLY, but the only one I know enough to speak.12:24
tilmanbitwise: :D :D12:24
predatorfreakRomster: I've learnt enough Old Norse West to say "12:25
predatorfreakI'm going to kill you."12:25
tilmani'm sure that will become handy one day12:25
RyoStilman: i updated xorg today and now i cant get my normal xmodmap to work.. any suggestions what may have caused that? :S12:25
predatorfreaktilman: Already use it around family at Christmas parties and shit.12:25
RyoSi simply use the de.nodeadkeys12:25
predatorfreakThey'd take offence if I told them I was going to kill them to their face :)12:26
tilmanxmodmap or keyboard layout?12:26
tilmanwhut whut?12:26
RyoSuhm, keyboard layout12:26
predatorfreakBut I can say that and say it's Old Norse West for "Merry Christmas" :P12:26
tilmanRyoS: can you paste the relevant lines from xorg.conf somewhere?12:26
bitwisepredatorfreak: i bet that comes in handy;)12:26
predatorfreakbitwise: Like you wouldn't believe...12:27
predatorfreakWhen you're as annoyed at parties as I am, you honestly just want to tell them all to go fuck off.12:27
predatorfreakBut telling them that you're going to kill them is just as good :)12:27

Lukasznice documentation15:56
LukaszEr where is amd64 release of crux?15:56
thrice` says that it's a distro for 68615:58
LukaszThats good15:58
LukaszThnx thrice`15:58
thrice`I think there was a 64-bit port, but only 686 is done by crux devs (and, actually one of them contributes a 586 build)15:58
LukaszCrux is very small15:59
predatorfreakthrice`: Mostly me and others :P16:00
RyoSaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah GOT IT WORKING16:00
predatorfreakIn fact, only me and others.16:00
RyoSdamn... that was a pain16:00
Lukaszis it possible to change the login time to 12 hr not 24 hr?16:00
RyoSif everything fails - format c:\?¿16:00
LukaszCause when you change the clock time the login time should change to 12 hr as well I hope16:02
Lukaszhow do I change the login time to 12 hr?16:03
LukaszCause in some linuxes it displays time on login RyoS16:04
Lukaszlogin widnows on top time16:04
RyoSwhy do you ask me? :S16:04
RyoSask the channel16:04
RyoSi have no idea16:04
RyoStilman: prost, got it again ;)16:05
LukaszAnyone know about clock 12 hr on login time?16:05
Lukaszcause it is setup to 24 hr and id like to know how I can change it16:05
Lukaszsry for repeating myself16:06
jaegerwhat is "login time"?16:06
*** DarkNekros has quit IRC16:06
LukaszFor example you see your login window and there can be sometimes time on top of window16:06
LukaszBefore username and pass16:07
RyoSsnap... just installed xorg-xf86-input-evdev and got that problems AGAIN Oo16:07
jaegerwhich login window?16:07
Lukaszwhen you first startup crux16:07
Lukaszasks for password16:07
Lukaszlast linux I had it had time on top16:07
jjpkYou are sweating about minor details.16:07
jaegerno the console, you mean?16:07
Lukaszlogin username and password16:08
jaegerhave a look at the /etc/issue file and 'man agetty'16:08
jjpkcrux does not start X by default.16:08
jaegeryou can add it there16:08
LukaszIf the login time not there thats good16:08
LukaszI won't have to worry about it16:08
jaegerit's not by default16:08
Lukaszhow do you add it there anyways and remove it?16:10
jaegercheck the agetty man page and add it to /etc/issue if you want16:10
Lukaszok I will16:10
Lukaszis that for issues report jaeger?16:11
LukaszI know how to open the edit thing in console16:12
Lukasz$ prt-get edit /etc/issue16:13
LukaszIs that correct jaeger?16:13
thrice`prt-get is not an editor16:13
jaegertry nano, it's simpler. prt-get isn't meant for editing16:14
Lukasznano /etc/issue16:14
RyoSemacs or vi? lets do a christmas fight16:14
predatorfreakjaeger: Better yet, use vim! :P16:14
predatorfreakRyoS: Neither! Vim! :P16:14
jaegerI think vim is a bit too much in this case16:14
RyoSvim is my editor of choice too, but oh well16:14
RyoSthats a classic16:14
predatorfreakjaeger: vim is NEVER too much.16:14
Lukasz$ prt-get vim install is that correct?16:15
jaegerI disagree16:15
predatorfreakYou never know when you might need regex search-and-replace :)16:15
jaegerLukasz: you might also want to look at the prt-get man page16:15
Lukaszis that in doc?16:15
predatorfreakLukasz: Don't bother with vim if you don't ever do any serious programming or something.16:15
RyoSLukasz: can you read the manual maybe?16:15
RyoSwould it be too much to say use ubuntu? XD16:16
predatorfreakIt's overkill unless you're a zealot or a programmer/scripter :P16:16
predatorfreakRyoS: Bah! I say go for the total noob-extreme.16:16
predatorfreakUse Linspire.16:16
RyoSlinspire, bleh16:16
predatorfreakjaeger: Also, once one adapts to vim, using anything else feels.... weird.16:17
predatorfreakI honestly can't use nano or even NOTEPAD without doing :wq anymore.16:17
jaegerI've used vi/vim for 11 years now, I know how it is16:17
predatorfreakjaeger: Hehe, it's a gift and a curse :P16:18
tilmanRyoS: got what again? segfault?16:19
RyoSgot that like a 100 times :P but its working now, except that the problems still are their16:20
