acrux|ppcthere are but a great number use yellow dog01:11
acrux|ppc'cause is simple01:11
Romsterand any other distrubuted processsing stuff.01:11

*** kitii has joined #crux01:16
Romsterbut dosn't do what you want i expect.01:16
acrux|ppcis good cad01:17
acrux|ppcbut they compile binary only for x86 and rpm01:17
acrux|ppcthen.. if i'm obliged to use commercial binary on x8601:18
acrux|ppci prefer cad on win box01:18
acrux|ppcok, i go away01:18
Romsteri hate closed source stuff.01:18
* Romster goes to make coffee01:19
kitiihey im trying to setup a wireless networkn i can scan and apply iwconfig bt cant get dhcp working01:19
tilmankitii: maybe your firewall blocks the dhcp broadcast crap?01:22
kitiinah no firewall is set or any encryption.dhcp just says error eth1 timed out01:26
kitiinah no firewall, dhcp just says error eth1 timed out01:27
kitiiam i supposd to have eth0 aswell?01:29
tilmanit seems a bit funny that your first network device is eth101:29
*** kbf has joined #crux01:40
kbfat boot i get some assertion errors with the bcm43xx module, could that be a possibilie reason why dhcp fails01:45
Romsterthe first device should be eth0, sounds to me you got some lan card driver issue.01:49
Romsteryou sure you got the right driver and what kernel version are you on?01:50
tilmankbf: assertion falures indicate something goes very wrong. so it's not that surprising that it doesn't work correctly...01:50
tilmanmaybe there's a newer driver available than the one you're using?01:51
*** kbf has quit IRC01:55
Romsterhis issue is the lan driver i bet. not dhcp.01:57
Romstertilman, you got a quick howto on using oprofile?02:31
Romsteri read hwotodo the daemon but i forgot how to profile a spefic binary.02:31
tilmanopreport -l /path/to/binary/im/interested/in02:32
Romsterah thanks.02:34
Romsterso it'll filter out then.02:35

morlenxusxorg-server 1.4-305:13
morlenxusDoesn't this version contain the patch?05:13
*** mrks has joined #crux05:14
Romstermorlenxus, yes why don't you do prt-get cat xorg-server05:19
Romsterrebuild it05:19
Romsterprt-get -fr xorg-server05:19
morlenxusI did yesterday, but i do that again now.05:21
Romstermaybe runs ports -u first and make sure you ddi rejmerge and that you updated the xorg.rsync to the 2.4 branch05:26
morlenxusI did.05:27
morlenxusWell let's wait for that rebuild but im pretty sure it doesn't change something.05:27
Romsterand restart xorg after.05:31

*** kitii has quit IRC06:29
morlenxusRomster: Still not working.06:34
morlenxusMight reconfigure my xserver. Is xorgcfg in some port?06:34
thrice`morlenxus: there is currently no patch in xorg-server to fix the LED's07:03
thrice`you can bump it to, and that will fix the LED issue, or patch it yourself with the current version07:03
morlenxusOh ok.07:04
morlenxusRomster: There is a difference between xorgcfg and xorgconfig.07:04
Romstermeh... then use prt-get fsearch xorgcfg07:06
*** __Tin0__ has joined #crux07:06
Romsterto find what package it belongs too.07:06
Romsterhonestly your asking simple questions....07:06
morlenxusIt's ok.07:08
*** __Tin0__ has left #crux07:22
*** Viper_ has joined #crux07:32
dokpm0Actually, there was an xorg-server patch posted to the CRUX mailing list on 11/12 that will fix the LED problem.  I've tried it on my CRUX box and it seems to work as advertised.07:38
thrice`out of curiosity, is there a reason gpasswd is removed from shadow?07:40

tilmanstupid led issue07:55
tilmanstupid stupid stupid07:56
tilmani cannot do anything atm anyway07:56
tilmani'm stuffed :p07:56
thrice`bad tilman !07:57
tilmanin my family you're *supposed* to eat way too much around christmas ;)07:58
dokpm0A Google search for kbd-led.patch will lead one to where one can obtain the patch in question and an updated Pkgfile for xorg-server.  So, until it makes it's way into the official CRUX repo it is at least available to those who want it.08:06
thrice`tilman: perhaps sticking it in xorg-server/ but not bumping the version?08:07
tilmanif it's such a huge issues for everyone i'll apply the patch08:08
tilmandon't get why it's so important though08:08
thrice`me neither :)08:08
tilmanwho cares about numlock? and nobody uses caps lock anyway08:08
thrice`tilman: you're saying that you're still full from yesterday?08:09
tilmanjust came back from lunch08:09
thrice`ah, germans have bigger lunches than dinners, right?08:09
tilmani don't even know whether you can say that08:11
tilmanbut i think at least on holidays, big lunches are more usual than (big) dinners08:12
Romsterdokpm0, yeah i used that too but i've since updated to the newer version that has that patch in it.08:12
Romstermorlenxus, hmm i thought tilman applied that patch but he hasn't i was seeing my port of xorg-server in prt-get cat... d'oh08:25

RyoSdidnt change a thing today, barely sat at my computer at all11:00
*** lasso has joined #crux11:00
RyoSonly thing that keeps comming to my mind is that urxvt (or zsh maybe..?) became EXTREMELY slow after upgrading crux. opening a terminal takes aprox. 5-7 seconds and closing it takes another 3 seconds.. very unusual behavior11:04
*** Man0l0 has quit IRC11:06
tilmanRyoS: remind me that i do not try to fix x11 bugs when _you_ report them next time11:13
RyoSuhm, its obviously a bug..11:13
tilmanRyoS: try bash with urxvt, then zsh with xterm :P11:13
RyoStilman: yeah i will do that11:14
RyoSit seems to be an urxvt problem11:15
tilmanwhat version?11:15
RyoSjust upgraded it, it was 8.811:16
RyoSnow its 8.9, i will tell you if it solved after restarting X in some minutes11:16
*** roliveira is now known as roliveira_11:18
RyoStilman: restarted X - keymap problem came back~; yet, urxvtd and urxvtc seem to work normaly now11:20
RyoSafter loading de keymap i have the old problem - ctrl and alt dont work (and i didnt mention that cursor keys did never work too)11:21
RyoSxev at least tells me the same as xmodmap, the keys have the right function assigned but yet they dont work...11:21
RyoSjesus this is annoying :)11:23

Services__please help?12:52
Services__imnewbe )12:52
RyoSyou should join #alsa for sound questions, thats not crux related if you ask me12:52
RyoSyou need to compile the drivers as a package or in the kernel, and then you need to install alsa-lib and whatsoever12:53
RyoSanyhow, configuring the soundcard is described on the alsa page12:53

jaegerI don't use vmware, myself, but we put in the driver that mavrick said was the right one15:29
dokpm0Man010: VMware defaults to SCSI disks for Linux installs but several distros I've tried under recent versions of VMware(VMware Server 1.0.4 most recently) don't seem to like VMware's SCSI disks, especially the BusLogic ones.  I just create a "custom" VM and create IDE disks instead of SCSI disks.  I usually also have to choose LSI for the SCSI option, or some Linux distros have trouble starting even though the disks are IDE.15:29
jaegerthe one he requested we put in is for the LSI controller, didn't mess with the buslogic15:31
dokpm0I've gotten so used to switching to IDE under VMware that I didn't even try SCSI disks with CRUX.  LSI SCSI disks might work just fine.  I'll give them a try later this evening when I get home.15:35
Man0l0jager,  I think vmware lsilogic hd is FUSION_MPT not LSI SCSI Drivers15:39
*** tri has joined #crux15:45

*** onestep has quit IRC16:34
dokpm0I'm home now and have tried installing CRUX 2.4 under VMware(which is running on a CRUX box). The current version of VMware Server(1.0.4) appears to default to buslogic SCSI, which CRUX doesn't appear to work with.  CRUX appears to handle VMware's LSI SCSI emulated drives just fine.  I have a CRUX install running as I type.16:55
jaegerso it works, just not with the default option?17:07
dokpm0jaeger: right.  The default is buslogic.  It work with LSI.17:08
Man0l0dokpm0, I have created a vm with 3 hd, ide, bus & lsi and only ide is detected17:16
Man0l0I load BusLogic module but no hd is detected :(17:17
Man0l0I can see both devices with lspci17:19

jaegerare you using crux 2.4?17:22
Man0l0# crux17:22
Man0l0CRUX version 2.417:22
dokpm0Hummm, which host OS and VMware version are you using?  I have VMware Server 1.0.4 running under CRUX 2.417:22
Man0l0I'm playing with vmplayer 2.0.2 under ubuntu17:23
Man0l0tomorrow I will try with server 1.0.417:23
dokpm0I created a "custom" VM and went with all the default settings except switching to LSI SCSI.  Upon booting the 2.4 CRUX install ISO image my LSI SCSI drive was detected.17:24
dokpm0Maybe it's a player VS server difference.17:24
Man0l0maybe, but it would be the first time that I have problems with vmplayer running a vm17:27
Man0l0I will try it tomorrow at office with the server 1.0.4 and I will let you know the result17:28
