Rotwangi'll make fbgrab port later03:03
teKyay! :)03:04
RomsterSiFuh, there is wgetpaste03:05
Romsterbut not a screen shot maybe there is some frambuffer program (thought)03:05
Romstercheck up on sourceforge freshmeat etc.03:05
Romsterwhat are you trying to take a picture of?03:05
Romsterand fbgrab hmm..03:06
RotwangRomster: fbgrab or snapscreenshot seems ok03:06
*** luxh has joined #crux03:15
SiFuhnot me,03:16
SiFuhthere use to be a program for reading bios under linux, but not modifying bios.. anyone remember the name of it?03:16
Romsterah i ment Rotwang i read the wrong line i saw your hmm...03:16
Romsterno idea..03:17
Romsteri think there is a kernel option to read the bios memory under /proc03:17
Romsterand even write to the few bits that arn't used so i'm guessing you could write to any bios memory bit.03:18
Romsterand really screw it up if not careful.03:18
SiFuhlike installing an OpenBSD kernel into Bios03:18
Romsterlol yeah <<03:19
SiFuhactually having a bios these days seems pretty useless03:19
Romsterone day i wanna use a linux bios.03:19
Romsterwhen it's more ready.03:20
SiFuhoneday i will get a sparc book03:20
mike_kSiFuh: got one?03:29
mike_koh, dreaming... me too03:29
SiFuhno i have wanted one for about 7 years but i dont have 10,000 US to spend03:30
mike_k10K just for fun03:31
teKhow about a leapforg? ;)03:32
mike_kand that is a little bit outdated hardware, I guess03:32
SiFuhfor 10K you could buy Alienware, Voodoo Books, or another high end gaming book.03:32
SiFuhmike_k: they have other models.03:33
mike_kAFAIK, I saw the very same models two years ago on their website03:33
SiFuhoutdated but I am sure, their status as living fossils would still be of value in comparisson to a 2 year old intel box. :-P03:33
SiFuh2 years? hehe no hurry to spend 10K then :-P03:34
*** onestep has joined #crux03:35
SiFuhit is a pity most notebooks use a clover leaf style plug, instead of a standard IEC/M03:36
SiFuhas AC IEC cords are far more common and cheaper03:36

*** Rotwang has left #crux03:41
mike_kcommon, but very unreliable... very easy to pull off03:41
SiFuhi guess, but notebooks run on batteries also03:43
SiFuhso if it pulls out, who will cry?03:43
Romsterthat clover leaf is bull crap if you ask me.03:43
Romsterwhat better is a 240v cannon conecter thsoe you can't pull out with the clip you gotta push down on.03:44
Romsterbut that's for professional gear03:44
SiFuh couldn't find one of these  in Australia03:45
Romsteryeah the cloverleaf plug?03:47
Romstershould be able to get them from a computer store.03:47
SiFuhthat actual plug03:47
Romsteryou want the plug alone so you can fit to a cable?03:48
Romsterthat IEC socket you can get nearly anywhere.03:48
SiFuhi decided to get that in the end03:48
SiFuhit was easier to find03:49
*** sepen_ has joined #crux03:49
SiFuhi made one of those already03:50
SiFuhbut using it for UPS03:50
Romsterya can buy them.03:51
Romsterbut tis' jsut as easy to make ya own.03:51
SiFuhyes i made my own last time because shop was out of stock03:53
SiFuhthis time they are out of stock for the parts, but i noticed that they had the complete leads in stock. :-)03:53

SiFuhnothing just cursing some chinese stories.. one of my friends tells me that her parents were born in the time where they did not know what love is.. and married because of making family, not making love.04:21
Romstermike_k, i keep seeing references of cloverleaf as a IEC C5 dunno where you got 14 and 15 from.04:22
mike_kI meant PC-like power cords.04:23
SiFuh IEC 14 is an entire cord04:23
SiFuhRomster: i came it accross it on a single site.. did not see any reference to it after though04:24
SiFuhlol  Romster   google search   "IEC C14"04:26
Romsteryeah your after a C14 to a C5 lead04:32
*** onestep has quit IRC04:38
*** onestep has joined #crux04:40
SiFuhor just buy those, and then i have no problems :-P04:42
Romsterthought you were after one of these
SiFuhbasically, IEC cables are as common as anything overseas04:48
SiFuhcan pick them up real easy, and real cheap. Plus my friends places, have piles of them laying around.04:48
*** onestep has quit IRC04:49
SiFuhI will take my notebook with me, so i have several options. I decided to aim for the IEC as it means less wires to carry around as they are common everywhere..04:49
*** onestep has joined #crux04:49
SiFuhjust got to watch out when i am in argentina04:50
SiFuhas the Neutral and live are switched around04:50
*** Man0l0 has joined #crux04:52
SiFuhall 220v-240v 50hz countries should use the same socket!04:53
rehabdollall countries should use the same voltage too04:53
SiFuhyeah, but small problem :-P04:54
SiFuhall countries would need to replace the power supply unit for ALL their electrical appliances04:54
rehabdollso what, everyone would have to change to 220-230. no skin off my back! :)04:55
SiFuhsince most countries use 220/240-60 i guess it would take presedence04:55
SiFuhwhat's up with madagascar?04:56
Romsteramerica are stupid they use black as active and white can be active too but is genearly netual, there split 120-120 system..04:56
Romsterand ehre black is netril and red is active but then they had to change other power cords to brown and blue grr04:57
rehabdollheh, well madagascar is a genetic freakshow so no surprise there :D04:57
SiFuhi'd have thought madagascar with all those monkeys and bicycles would be able to produce more power than that..04:57
Romsterruning wheels with generators <<04:58
RedShift230v/50Hz FTW04:59
Romsteroh and 3 phase uses white as an active too...04:59
SiFuhi did not know Romster was in Au04:59

mike_krehabdoll: /j #crux6407:49
rehabdolloh :D07:49
*** boe has quit IRC07:54
RedShiftrehabdoll: that's because your kernel doesn't have support for executing 32 bit binaries07:55
RedShiftyou have to explicitly configure it to allow that07:55
pitilloand anyone know if is there a channel for crux-arm?07:56
*** jdolan_ has joined #crux07:58
RomsterRedShift, does is have a -m32 on it instead of a -m6407:59
Romsterargh rehabdoll07:59
rehabdollno RedShift, it does have that. but i am running a pure64bit system08:01
rehabdollie no 32bit libs08:01
RedShiftthen you need the 32 bit libs too, if you want to run 32 bit binaries08:01
rehabdollseemed the binary was a bit fux0red, tried looking in lib64 instead of lib08:02
RedShiftI recommend using a chroot, that way everything is nicely seperated08:02
rehabdollthe binary in question was a 64bit one08:02
rehabdollstupid non-free software08:03
RedShiftnvidia works fine here08:03

concorrhi Man0l008:28
RedShiftMan0l0: nothing, just something we use here08:28
Man0l0hi concorr08:29
DarkNekrosRedShift, it is not polite to not bring Man0l0 the translation to that Shizzle xDD08:36
RedShiftDarkNekros: it has no translation08:37
DarkNekrosit's an expression?08:37
*** acrux_ is now known as mafarka08:37
RedShiftit's something like "Product X is the shit", or "Product X is the bomb"08:38
DarkNekrosRedShift, I know that "The real Shizzle" is slang language and I know also that has to have a meaning (good or bad, but a meaning)08:38
jaegerit's not really a word, just a slang thing08:38
RedShiftwe use "Product X is the shizzle"08:38
DarkNekrosok RedShift ;)08:38
pitilloRedShift, is there a reason to take that conclusion?08:39
RedShiftit works great08:39
Man0l0RedShift, what do you refer as a shizzle, cacti or my port of cacti ?08:39
RedShiftcacti in general08:39
RedShiftyou wrote a cacti port or something?08:40
RedShiftwell actually cacti + plugin architecture08:40
Man0l0yes, I wrote a crux port for cacti and the plugin architecture08:41
RedShiftwell I use cacti to monitor all my servers08:42
RedShiftit works great08:42
RedShiftI've recently added those plugins, so I can cut costs on external monitoring services08:44
RedShift(which is quite expensive for what it does)08:44
Man0l0I'm using it too08:45
RedShiftusing threshold, discover and monitor plugins08:46
DarkNekrosRedShift, I just wonder how you can know if "product X is the shizzle" has a good meaning or a bad one :)08:46
RedShiftDarkNekros: usually good, but depending on the context08:47
DarkNekrosok, thank you RedShift ;)08:47
RedShiftone could say "man what bad shizzle" meaning that's really really bad stuff08:47
DarkNekrosI'm improving my slang english xD08:47
Man0l0me too :)08:48
DarkNekroscool Man0l0 :D08:48
Man0l0RedShift, are you using catci alone or integrated with nagios ?08:50
RedShiftusing cacti alone08:50
RedShiftnagios seems like a big PITA, haven't come near it08:50
Man0l0I know PITA now :D, more slang08:52
RedShiftMan0l0: are you using nagios?08:52
RedShifthow much of your hair have you lost?08:52
RedShiftI knew it. I'm not coming near nagios anytime :X08:53
Man0l0It does its job very well08:54
Man0l0I know it is a bit painfull08:54
pitillopaintfull? ummm letting a bit of time checking config files isn´t hard to setup (the more computers the more time... but with oganization and patterns can be done easily)08:55
RedShiftbesides, nagios is ugly08:56
RedShiftcacti is much easier on the eyes08:56
Man0l0but is a question of efficiency not of beauty08:57
pitilloRedShift, I found both very usefull. Checking availability for nagios and check performance with cacti.08:57
RedShiftthat should be able to check availability of services but it is far from finished (trust me, I just tried - it doesn't even install correctly)08:58
pitilloI am using cacti  only to check servers and nagios to monitor status (ping and some snmpd to get info of some devices)08:58
Man0l0pitillo, I'm using that configuration too08:58
pitilloyeah, I think it´s the propper way to use both, but we are free to use them like we want :)08:59
Man0l0RedShift, how many server are you monitoring with cacti ?09:01
RedShiftMan0l0: 7 servers, 1 switch and a bunch of routers09:01
RedShiftMan0l0: you?09:03
Man0l0RedShift, I'm monitoring with nagios more than 1000 devices, server, routers, switches, print server, ups, airconditioned system09:03
sepenI think Man0l0 has more than that09:03
Man0l0and now I'm trying to monitored the coffe machine too :)09:04
RedShiftwhich company?09:04
sepenMan0l0, monitor me! please!09:04
RedShiftMan0l0: which company?09:06
pitillohere with nagios 64 devices (printers, switches and 8 servers) with cacti 10 servers. Far from you Man0l0... xD09:06
RedShiftholy crap big motha' of a traceroute09:08
RedShiftwell I know which ISP in spain to avoid :D09:09
Man0l0yes, you are right, try to avoid telefonica as much as posible09:10
RedShiftlooks like they are trying to save on transit traffic09:11
RedShiftnot the first time I've heard their uplinks are overloaded09:11

sepenRotwang, are you using mlnetd daemon?09:58
Rotwangsepen: no09:59
sepenI wrote this service script to use my /var/mlnet/incoming/files as the path where store downloads10:00
sepenits running fine here!10:00
Rotwangsepen: i use mldonkey rarely, and earlier i was using mldonkeygtkui10:02
sepenI also ported 'sancho-gui' for it10:02
*** onestep has joined #crux10:02
Rotwangill look at it10:03

Romsteris wise to make it local.10:05

Romsteralthough i dont see any conflicts happening.10:05

Romsteryeah all vars inside build (most) are set to local10:06
Romsterso no chance of conflicting.10:06

rpeterHello, yesterday I would have liked to know why I don't have sound with mplayer, and now here is the output after running mplayer: "Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound. Audio: no sound" And once again I have video.11:43
rpeterAt the same time I could play mp3 files with sound.11:44
rpeterWith the mpg32111:45
*** c0merr has quit IRC11:45
rpeterDo you have any idea?11:45
thrice`that better not be all the iphone shit11:46
thrice`oops, wrong one :)11:46
jaegerrpeter: the "could not open/initialize audio device" sounds to me like it's either a permissions issue or the audio device isn't created11:46
thrice`(getting mad at keynote :)11:46
jaegerif other apps have sound then the device is created11:47
tilmanmaybe mpg321 uses alsa, and mplayer wants to use oss11:47
tilmanmplayer -ao help11:47
tilmanshould list the audio plugins that mplayer knows about i think11:47
rpeterjaeger:I have a member of audio group11:47
jaegerit does, yes11:47
jaegertried both -ao alsa and -ao oss with mplayer?11:49
rpeterOk in the list of "mplayer -ao help" is not alsa there.11:49
jaegerdo you have alsa-lib installed?11:49
*** discomaxus has quit IRC11:49
rpeterof course I have alsa-lib installed11:50
jaegerdid you install it after mplayer?11:50
rpeterI don't know it11:50
jaegertry ldd /usr/bin/mplayer | grep -i asound11:51
rpeterno output11:53
rpetershould I reinstall mplayer?11:55
thrice`alsa-lib was installed after mplayer :)11:55
jaegerwhat you want to see is this: => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c6b000)11:55
rpeteri have this: /usr/lib/ ->
jaegerI mean when you ran ldd on /usr/bin/mplayer that line should have shown up11:57
jaegerif you rebuild mplayer now (with alsa-lib installed) it should do the right thing (tm)11:57
rpeterShould I run ldd as root?11:58
tilmanldd just needs to be able to _read_ the so files11:59
tilmanso no11:59
rpeterthen there is no libasound in the output11:59
rpeterthen rebuild?12:00
jaegerbut there will be when you rebuild mplayer :)12:00
rpetermany thanks12:00
jaegerit looks like you built mplayer first, then alsa-lib, so mplayer didn't have alsa-lib available at the time it was installed12:00
*** sepen has quit IRC12:04

rpeterinteresting that I have to rm mplayer package from the ports dir, or else it will reinstall the same bad package12:05
*** mike_k has joined #crux12:05
jaegerthat's a bit more in-depth discussion but the short version is that since the Pkgfile hasn't changed the ports tools think it's unnecessary to rebuild12:07
Romsterdepends what order you have of directorys in prt-get.. and bad mplayer?12:07

rpeterCompiling mplayer accomplished.. I am deeply indebted to you for your help.12:26
rpeterThere is sound :)12:27
rpeterMay I ask a not Crux related question here?12:28
rpeterIt is about ArkLinux and ArkLive12:29
rpeterI have a Ralink wireless card for internet connection12:29
rpeterThe problem, that on the Live system, that works only on CD I could connect to tne net, but not on the installed Ark12:31
rpeterI find, that ra0 (the device name) can not found in /sys/class/net dir on Ark, but it is on the Live system12:32
tilmanno idea on that12:32
jaegertry and found out exactly which driver the live system is using and duplicate it on the installed version12:33
rpeterthe driver exists on both system12:33
jaegerthere has to be something different, though, or it would work12:34
jaegerperhaps missing firmware or a different driver version12:34
rpeterthe driver is built-in in Ark12:35
rpeterOtherwise ra0 is not in output of command "ip link show"12:39
rpeterWhat may the reason, if a dev is not in ip output?12:40
rpeterMaybe I should do an "ip link set ra0 up"?12:41
jaegeryou can also check if "ifconfig -a" sees it12:43
rpeterI think not12:43
rpeterand not eth012:43
jaegerthe driver may not be loaded12:44
jaegerif it's a module you could load it yourself12:44
*** boe has joined #crux12:45
rpeterI loaded the driver with modprobe12:45
jaegercheck the output of "dmesg", too, see if it looks like the module did something useful12:46
rpeterBut I'm going to try command "ip link set ra0 up"12:48
jaegerdon't think it'll help much if ra0 didn't show up in the "ifconfig -a" output12:48
RedShiftdoesn't ra need firmware to work?12:49
*** drijen has joined #crux12:50
rpeterwhat kind of firmware?12:53
rpeterbut maybe I will tray a manual compilation, it's not difficult, altough the Live and not Live release are the same version12:54
pitillorpeter, do you have the module loaded?12:55
jaegeryou could also take a look in /lib/firmware on the live system12:55
rpeterNow I watch the /var/log/messages as mentioned, and there are weird thing:  "Unknown hotplug event: module"12:57
rpeterand " Unknown hotplug event: drivers"12:57
rpeterand below " DEVPATH=/bus/pci/drivers/rt2500"12:58
jaegerno idea on that one12:58
Romsterudev rule for it?13:00
RedShiftrpeter: what do you mean what kind of firmware?13:00
*** Man0l0 has quit IRC13:00
RedShiftthere's only one kind of firmware and it's called firmware13:00
rpeterrt2500 1.1.0 CVS CVS Release http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com13:01
tilmanthere's old firmware, new firmware, buggy firmware, free firmware, proprietary firmware, ....13:01
*** sepen has joined #crux13:02
rpeterOk on Crux I downloaded rt2500-cvs.tar.gz, and compiled, then was no problem with it13:02
rpeterThen "iwconfig ra0" with parameters, then "dhcpcd ra0" and I had net13:03
sepenrpeter, you can easily make a port for it and publish the Pkgfile for others13:04
rpeterPerhaps if needed "modprobe rt2500", but not needed13:04
sepenwith this comments on a README file too13:04
rpeterI'm not handy in this thing yet13:05
rpeterI will see some docs, but my problem was always, that this card is not too common13:06
rpeterTherefore I had to compile myself13:07
rpeterShall I try to reinstall the system?13:08
rpeterBut it doesn't seem to be broken13:08
rpeterThe weird thing is for me, that net can be connected on LiveCD, but not on the not Live, and both are the same version13:11
RedShifttilman: I'm guessing OLD|BUGGY|PROPRIETARY13:11
*** tri has left #crux13:14
rpeterAnyway I don't understand this firmware; it is a program for instance to CD drives, isn't it?13:16
rpeterAnyway I had problems with compiling sorce of rt2500, but then a newer cvs was a help13:18

rpeterThere is nothing from ra0 there14:48
rpeterIs there an easy method, if I want to install a full repo to my machine, for instance kde?14:53
treachnot really. there is a kde repo but it means pretty extensive compiling.14:55
*** tri has joined #crux15:07
RedShiftpeople are fscking stupid15:12
RedShiftsome guy on a forum asks what the difference is between myisam and innodb15:12
RedShiftI explain to him that innodb supports transactions and myisam doesn't, and supply him with a few links about innodb and myisam + a comparison15:13
RedShifthe still doesn't know which storage engine to use15:13
RedShiftthe articles explain the differences and he's asking for what reason you'd use either myisam or innodb15:13
treachheh, looks like it doesn't matter to him. :P15:14
RedShiftapparently he's also using mysql with a load balancer in front and master/master replication15:15
RedShiftso I'm pretty sure he hasn't got a clue what he's talking about15:15
treachmmh, if you don't know the differences between myisam/innodb, the odds of knowing head from tail about load balancing seems pretty bad.15:16
