namenlosdoes anyone here know how to make menues in css?02:24
namenlos i want to remove the 1 pixel space from the top of the first submenu...02:25
namenlosjust hover over top1...02:25
Romsteri do CSS02:37
* Romster looks02:37
Romsternamenlos, you don't even need the .nav on it,  take a look to my new layout i'm working on and the css for the menu
*** sepen has joined #crux02:48
Romsterhi sepen02:53
namenlosRomster: i might be wrong, but i couldn't find anything expanding, when i was hovering over it...02:57
Romsteron my menu?02:58
namenlosRomster: yes.02:58
namenloshave you done it with javascript?02:59
Romsterit's static that's why..02:59
Romsterbut it'll be generated from some code when it's done.02:59
Romsterpure html/css02:59
*** luxh_ has joined #crux02:59
Romsteronly java script i got on that page is to make the menu dividers aline up to the content div03:00
Romsterand one to change the colour theme.03:00
namenlosRomster: on my test file, simply hover over top1 and then over top203:01
Romsterstill working on one java script to expand the content over the top of the menus too.03:01
Romsterah i hadn't had javascript on..03:01
namenlosyou don't need javascript03:01
namenloslook at the source code.03:01
namenlosthe only thing, wich is annoying me, is the one pixel space above the submenu...03:02
*** boe has joined #crux03:14
*** luxh has quit IRC03:16
*** luxh_ is now known as luxh03:16
Romsteri told you to look at my css code for the menu you most likely don't have it set correctly or do i have to edit it myself and pastebin the changes.03:22
Romsteri gave you a example to go by.03:22
namenlosnevermind. i think we are talking about 2 different things.03:47

pitillonamenlos, ul.nav li ul {.. top: -1; ...}04:13
pitilloor check the source if I didn´t explained it well:
Romsterlook at margin and padding you most likely haven't aplied it to the right tag.04:15
pitillowith that trick the menu appears well :)04:16
pitilloI don´t know if namenlos means that04:19
namenlospitillo: yes, it works, but i wonder, why the right list appears one pixel down.04:19
namenlospitillo: i mean that.04:19
pitillobecause you are using tha px for the margin04:19
namenlospitillo: the margin of the nested ul?04:24
pitillonamenlos, I think so04:25
*** discomaxus has joined #crux04:25
namenlosi got to read more about this. i have now set both padding and margin to 0, but it somehow still positions the element not how i want it (except with top: -1px)04:30
teKnamenlos: you may want to try out firebug (if you use firefox)04:31
namenlosteK: ok, i will give it a try04:36
*** c0merr has joined #crux04:40
teKyou're welcome. it's *really* useful04:45
Romsternamenlos, did you take into account the 1px border?04:53
Romstermargin + border + padding=04:54
namenlosRomster: thanks for the tip. i think i got it. we got to calculate the absolute position from the inner li elements, since they are the outer absolute elements...04:59
*** boe has joined #crux05:02
namenlosso stupid... Romster, you where right, it where the right, it was the border...05:04
Romsteri got on that one ages ago too.05:05
Romsterand figured it out.05:05
*** concorr_ has joined #crux05:05
Romsterwhen it's relative it's the containing container you need to work it from, position:absolute; is always from the body05:06
Romsterit is fun, that's why it's always wise to use a background to test div's and not borders.05:07
Romsteras the border can mess the layout up.05:07
teKfirebug can display the box model active for a chosen element, too05:18

SiFuhthis weather sucks bad for putting coats of varnish on furniture06:05
Romsterwhat is the weather like too cold ?06:05
SiFuhtoo wet06:05
SiFuhrain rain rain all the time06:06
Romsterah would make it go milky.06:06
SiFuhi will give you a hint about how bad it is06:06
SiFuhyou leave a piece of bread on the couter at 600am and by 1300pm it is covered in mould06:06
Romsterpeople in boats goingdown the street <<06:06
SiFuhyes, it is so bad that everything i own is not in a cupboard anymore but layed accross the floor06:07
SiFuhto stop the clothes from going mouldy06:08
SiFuhand the furniture (that's not varnished)06:08
Romsterbe like a tropical rain forest like that.06:08
SiFuhwe do have a dehumidifier and fans going all day..   I went to get sandpaper today.. every sheet in every place is soaking wet from the air alone.06:08
SiFuhi like it.. i just don't like the heat/mould mixed in with it.06:09
Romsteryeah that part would suck..06:10
Romsterwell put it this way wet and dry sandpaper will still work <<06:10
*** vertah has quit IRC06:10
SiFuhmaybe but, i don't think the dry part is of any use :-P06:11

concorrok Romster, I was translating into Google xP08:08
concorrRomster: can you helpme with this footprint error?
concorri dont know what is the error08:11
Romsterlooks like your missing gpgme08:12
concorrok, thx08:13
concorrRomster: As you saw what was wrong?08:13
Romsteri'd say it'll work without it if oyu do a -uf08:14
Romsterjust you'll lose functuinality of gpg signing keys.08:14
Romstertook a wild guess.08:15
concorrbut ok, thx08:15
Romstergenearly missing files will just mean, some optional package or a missing dependency isn't on the system.08:17
Romsterfootprints don't always match up.08:17
Romsterthere handy to see if there is a problem or can be ignored.08:18
*** pedja has quit IRC08:18
pitilloRomster, what do you think in this case? must the packager update that footprint to a newer without that ports installed?08:18
pitillo(in this case gpgme and clamav aren´t really deps)08:18
Romsterfor rights gpgme should be listed as a dependency or that footprint should be cleaned out of them files.08:18
Romsternot required but add optional functionality.08:19
concorrno gpgme as depend08:19
*** Rotwang has quit IRC08:19
Romsteri'd say add gpgme as a dependency as that would be the most handy one to have. clamav isn't really needed in linux.08:20
Romsterconcorr, the maintainer of that port has gpgme on there system but not listed in that port.08:20
concorrok, i now install gpgme, but pinentry download error08:21
*** Rotwang has joined #crux08:21
concorrhi Rotwang08:22
Rotwangconcorr: dzien dobry08:23
pitilloimo both must be added like nice to have or in a readme file, updating the footprint, and let the user check if he wants or not both.08:24
namenlosconcorr: prt-get edit pinentry Pkgfile and change ftp:// to http://08:25
namenlosconcorr: afaik something like that should help.08:26
concorrnamenlos: yes, but broken link in ftp, i dont find for download08:26

concorri write http://ftp... lol ;)08:28

Husiomldonkey supports ed2k ?10:15
namenlosRomster: first he wants to open a view files (where he couldn't tell me the type of), and then he asked me, whether i got spare time (no, i don't have) next weekend to remove vista and install xp (because it is so funny)10:15
Husioso, why won't you use mldonkey?10:16
concorrnamenlos: xP10:16
concorrHusio: for know other options10:16
namenlosthe problem is, that if people know someone, they could ask, they stop thinking...10:17
namenloslets say: most of the people..10:18
Romstersadly xp support will drop and there be either vista or goto linux.10:19
Romsterwonder what other montrosity microsoft brings out for there next version..10:27
namenlossomehow, it seems, that people don't realize, that in short term it is as expensive to switch to vista, as it is to linux.10:29
namenlosin long term i think linux will be cheaper.10:29
Romsterthe expense will be in learning time.10:34

rpeterHello, yesterday I asked why I don't managed to connect to net on Arklinux via my Ralink wireless card. Now it works. I write it if by accident somebody interested in it14:43
rpeterifconfig eth0 up; iwconfig ra0 and parameters; dhclient ra014:44
rpeterand the modul was automatically loaded after the first command14:44
rpeteryes ark14:44
rpeteron crux iwconfig ra0 and parameters and dhcpcd ra0 are the nesessary commands14:48
*** Viper_ has quit IRC14:49
Romsterand you put them in /etc/rc.d/net14:55
Romsterisn't that documented in the handbook.14:55
rpeterwhat should I do?14:56
Romsterdhcpcd is listed so ip dosn't handle wifi cards? ip replaces ifconfig.14:58
rpeteryes I have now 2.4 installed, and there I put iwconfig in /etc/rc.d/net, but the password in an other file14:58
Romsterrpeter, if it works i guess leave it as it is.14:58
rpeterI saw yesterday a txt file here14:59
rpeteran attachment14:59
*** boe has joined #crux15:06
rpeterRomster, I think iwconfig handles wifi cards, not ip or ifconfig15:10
rpeterbut "ip link set ra0 up" does something15:11
Romsteryeah replaces 'ifconfig eth0 up'15:12
pitillorpeter, it makes the net device became up15:12
Romsterifconfig is a old tool ip is the new one.15:12
Romsterit's still on the cd but i'm guesing it'll be removed in the next release.15:13
rpeterpitillo, yes15:13
Romsterdhcpd is in the handbook listing so that just leaves iwconfig for wifi cards.15:13
Romsterwtf is it me or the hadbook makes no reference to iwconfig for wifi cards..15:15
pitilloiwconfig it's only used to manage wifireless parameters15:15
Romsteri could of swore it used too *looks at the 2.3 one*15:15
pitilloI don't understand the last sentence15:16
Romsterpitillo, i know but i'm wondering why i can't see a reference in the handbook to for iwconfig for wifi15:16
pitilloRomster, ummm I think it isn't related to crux directly, you can always use google for that point but if you find interesting, can be added easily15:16
pitillobut man iwconfig does the trick, imo (I think the objective of that handbook's section it's top explain the aim of the /etc/rc.d/net file)15:18
Romsteryes but it's related to network setup15:18
pitilloI don't know if you see my point15:18
Romsterthat's jsut plane stupid to not state or even have a commented out line for iwconfig15:18
Romsteryeah if they know it is iwconfig there looking for...15:18
pitilloI think the user using a wifi card can read documentation provided by the driver... or ask google directly15:19
Romsterthere should be a line in the handbook that says "Use iwconfig for wifi cards"15:19
pitilloI think that isn't needed...15:19
Romsterwhats the point of a handbook if it arnt complete oh wtf ever15:19
pitilloI see that section wich tries to explain the aim of the rc.d/net file, not the options you can use there15:20
*** concorr has joined #crux15:20
Romsteri could of swore the old 2.3 documtation said to replace ipconfig with iwconfig for wifi cards15:21
pitilloit's quite easy to add that, but I belive it isn't the point of that section (that is only my opinion Romster, don't take it bad)15:21
rpeterdoes anybody here wireless connection?15:21
jaegeryou can still use ifconfig for wireless cards15:21
jaegeriwconfig and ifconfig are meant to achieve different things15:21
pitillorpeter, this last weeked I made a setup for a rt250015:22
*** Man0l0 has quit IRC15:22
pitilloand it's working perfect there15:22
jaeger"replace ifconfig with iwconfig" isn't meaningful as they don't have the same purpose or options15:22
pitillojaeger, that is the point, iwconfig to setup wifi parameters15:22
clickonceiwconfig makes sense for Wireless but ipconfig does not really relate to "cable". "iwconfig" and "icconfig" would be nice. :)15:22
rpeterit works15:22
rpeterpitillo, it is perfect for me15:23
pitillothen you need to setup the wifi inteface with ifconfig15:23
pitillorpeter, for me too :)15:23
Romsterip replaces ifconfig...15:23
