Romsterglibc: file: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory04:17
Romsterfrom revdep04:17
rehabdollb0rked zlib  installation?04:19
Romsterlooking into it.04:21
Romsteri got zlib i rebuilt it just in case and i'll run revdep again.04:22
Romsterrehabdoll, or anyone can you confirm this
Romsternot sure if that is normal04:29
Romsteri did run ldconfig too.04:32 lives in /lib, not /usr/lib04:33
rehabdollso your output seems normal04:36
Romsterah i should of realised that.04:36
Romsterfor rights libz should be in /lib as it's a core package?04:36
rehabdollnah, the footprint of zlib puts everything in /usr/lib04:37
rehabdollbut glibc needs to be accessible even if /usr is not mounted, or you're screwed :)04:38
Romsterbut if /usr was on another partiton and not mounted then ya screwedwith zlib too.04:39
rehabdolltrue it would cause some problems.. but its not _that_ critical, right?04:40
rehabdollbut glibc is required for mount etc.. and everything else for that matter04:41
Romsterjust wonder what else would happen if /user got unmounted.04:44
Romstermaybe zlib isn't critical but there could be something else that is.04:44

*** grml has joined #crux06:54
grmlhello (again). did anyone report any problem with the new isos since yesterday? i downloaded and burned 3 different isos from 3 different locations.i get the same behaviour with all of them06:55
grmlwhen the iso boots and after boot: i get some lines of weird characters06:56
tilmani guess you verified the md5sum of the iso?06:56
grmland more are generated after i press enter06:56
grmlyes ofc06:56
grmlall 3 times it was correct06:57
tilmancan you take a photo? i'm not sure what to make out of 'weird characters'06:57
tilmangrml: it's an i686 compatible box, right?06:57
grmlhmm, let me see if i can get qemu on slack06:57
*** sepen has quit IRC06:59
tilmangrml: can you try on another computer? :x07:03
grmlyes that will be faster prolly too. didnt try til now cause i want to install on this one07:04
grmlit seems to be ok on another computer07:06
grmli fail to see why it behaves like that on this one though07:07
RomsterRyoS, prt-get update -fr -if --install-scripts `prt-get quickdep xorg`07:07
Romsterand then restart xorg and see if it does it then.07:08
Romsterand force rebuild any remaining xorg packages you got installed.07:08
grmlany ideas why?07:10
Romstergrml, did you md5 the cd after it was burned?07:18
grmlno...but as proven it works ok another computer07:19
*** Viper_ has joined #crux07:21
RyoSRomster: did that already yesterday07:22
Romstergrml, then what hardware are you trying it on?07:22
RomsterRyoS, known bugs on xorg bug tracker?07:22
grmlLinux dark #2 SMP Tue Jun 19 14:58:11 CDT 2007 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux07:22
Romsterjust a althon.07:23
Romstergrml, so something on the install kernel isn't configured right07:23
Romsterwhat's the exact output you get on the screen when you boot up the disc07:23
grmlthe one i tried it and works is a PIII07:23
grmlill try to get a screenshot from qemu. might take a while07:25
grmlthe 2.3 installation worked on the same pc btw07:26
Romsterso someting changed from 2.3 to 2.4 that isn't compatable with that hardware.07:37
grmllet me try something bbl07:40
*** grml has quit IRC07:40
*** tri has joined #crux07:42
triping rho07:42
Romsterhi tri07:42
trisome crux'ers at 24c3 ?07:42
Romsteris it me or are we seeing new users in here.07:43
*** grml has joined #crux07:43
grmlthe error is could not find kernel image.07:44
triromster: i'm searching for the /ports/rho creator - if is you - can you update the iwlwifi packages ? :-)07:45
grmleven tho i still get a bunch of C's with a line on bottom, like an underlined C , a char that has three parallel lines and a lot of x's^n. plus some square ones07:45
Romstergrml, you sure you burned the iso as a cd image and not too fast say 12x?07:47
tri24c3 ->
Romstertri look in the Pkgfile for the Maintaienr07:47
triah sorry sure...07:47
triping Rouven Schuerch :-)07:48
Romstergrml, and that cd/dvd drive might be iffy07:48
Romstertri, email the person, unless you know they be on irc like myself.07:48
Romsterand my packages have my irc name in them.07:49
grmlwell it worked for all others i tried. and last time i burned it with 8x just in case but no luck :/07:49
triRomster: thx :-)07:49
Romstertri, or you could take that package and edit it yourself and add your own repo to the portsdb07:50
Romsterthat's the other option07:50
triyes, but i read the guide for new repos and there was this "first contact the maintainer..." sentence :-)07:51
Romstergrml, check the cd that you burned
Romsterand maybe that brand of disc you used dosn't work well in that drive on that spefic computer?07:52
Romsterso maybe try another brand of disc07:52
Romstertri, yeah07:52
Romstergrml, could do what i did since i got a sata dvd drive nwo and my motherboard hasn't got sata so i got a add on sata pci card, so i can't boot of the cds so i booted normally, su to root07:54
Romsterinit 107:54
Romsterlog back in goto root mount the crux-2.4 cd goto the /mnt/cdrom/crux/core07:54
Romsterthen, for p in *; do pkgadd -u $p; done07:55
Romsteryou'll haev to remove some packages before you do that and then run that command without the -u07:55
Romsterto add anything that's new that's not a update.07:56
Romsterrebuild the kernel reboot07:56
*** grml has quit IRC07:56

roliveira_merry christmas everyone09:02
tilmanthanks, same to you09:07
tree42hi all, i get an "switch_root: bat init '/sbin/init'" Kernel panic with the new 2.4 iso - 2.3 iso was booting fine on an intel core duo with p5b mobo (JMicron). any idea?09:09
Romsternot much of an idea but maybe the kernel on the new 2.4 dosn't have your driver enabled for your ide/sata on the cd kernel.09:16
tree42ok, is there a way to upgrade from 2.3 over ports?09:17
RyoSRomster: nothing to rejmerge09:17
Romstertree42, boot up as normal switch to init 109:19
Romstercd to the core ports on the cd and do a for p in *; pkgadd -u; done09:20
Romsterthen run it without -u09:20
Romsterbut there is a a few ports you need to remove first.09:20
Romsterthen rebuild the kernel09:20
tree42thx will try that09:21
Romsterreboot and do the rest of the stuff.09:21
Romsterthat's how i did mine since i cant' boot off a sata dvd drive09:21
Romsteri'd give the hardware report and if you can a screen shot of the error to the crux devs so they are aware of the problem09:23
Romsteryou might wanna check out the iso.git tree and build your own and see if you can fix the problem.09:23
tree42ok will try that later on09:24
Romsterand do a patch -pruN of the orig to the modifyed version.09:25
Romsterbut yeah do that method i said and don't forget rejmerge.09:25
tree42u mean after bulid?09:26
Romsterand to run lilo <<09:26
Romsterafter runing the pkgadd command when your done run rejmerge09:26
Romsterand review the changes.09:26
Romsterman rejmerge if you haven't read about it yet09:26
Romsteryou can lose your etc/* settings if you don't be careful.09:27
tree42is upgradeing that way tested and save?09:27
Romsterwell i've done it and i'm here09:27
tree42:/ oh09:27

limpiohi, is there a way during partitioning to use cfdisk instead of fdisk?10:48
trihm type cfdisk ?10:55
Romsteryeah jsut type cfdisk instead i think it's on the cd.11:04
Romsterls the directory if not sure.11:04
* Romster prefers fdisk11:05
Romsteri could never get the hang of cfdisk11:05
limpiodoes it give an option for dhcp?11:09
Romstercdfidsk is to partiton dhcp has nothing todo with cfdisk.11:09
Romsterand the cd has dhcp on it.11:09

jjpkYay for unorthodox update methods. \o/15:59
jjpkThe other day I noticed my desktop's burner is dying after 3 failed burn attempts.16:00
jjpkMounted the 2.4 iso in loopback, copied the packages, updated them, rebuilt the kernel and rebooted.16:01
jjpkNow to check everything is working.16:01
Romsterah i did a crazy way to update myself.16:02
rehabdolli think ive installed with the crux-cd once16:03
jjpkRomster: what you described earlier is not too different from what I did.16:03
rehabdolland this is with 2 machines, one starting with 2.1 wich is now running 2.4 and the other one with 2.2 :)16:03
tilmannobody else has strange XKB related errors?16:04
tilmanor are you all using the us layout?16:04
*** mantono has joined #crux16:04
jjpkI have not updated the xorg files from 2.4 just yet.16:04
jjpkChecking core/opt first with revdep.16:05
Romsteri'm using the us layout too bad there is no aus one?16:06
Romster2.4 xorg is fine.16:07
RyoSstill not wroking for me, but i could not be working on it today16:07
RyoSxorgs what i am talking about16:07
* Romster slaps RyoS with a grammar book <<16:08
Romsterrelaly have no idea since i don't use other keymaps.16:08
tilmandamnit romster16:09
jjpkIt would be redundant to have separate keymaps. US and AU both use English. ;)16:10
aona bit like sv is redundant when we have fi16:10
jjpkcp sv fi. done :D16:10
RyoSRomster: i am drunk ok? :P16:11
RyoShave mercy16:11
jjpkThe finnish keymap is the same as the swedish. Politics ftw...16:11
tilmanhaha, nice16:11
aonno, the swedish keymap is the same as the finnish16:12
RyoSvi or emacs? :S16:12
*** DeSm0N has quit IRC16:13
jjpkvim has the upperhand in here. I think han was the only one to admit using emacs.16:14
aonand me16:14
aonalthough not atm16:14
jjpkcptn might have also.16:14
aoncptn uses xemacs16:14
aoni seem to maintain {x,}emacs at the moment16:14
* jjpk kicks tetex.16:20
jjpkrevdep is nicely stalled on this pkg.16:20
tilmanrevdep opens every single file in the package and checks whether it's an executable16:25
tilmani dunno how many gazillion files tetex contains16:25
