Romsteri have a crazy problem i got used memory in /dev/shm i can't see anything in lsof and i can not umount it. kqemu filled it up...01:29
*** NicePics has joined #crux01:29
NicePicsWhere can I get the efika patchset for 2.6.24+ ? Is it just the sound patch?01:32
Romsteri don't know of it01:34
Romsterisn't even listed in ketchup file so it's not so popular maybe. guess google for it.01:35
Romstersince when is that crux related?01:35
NicePicsacrux|ppc: requesting latest efika patchset01:36
Romsterhe is marked away.01:41
Romsterbest to either idle and wait or email him.01:41
NicePicsok, thanks01:44
*** NicePics has quit IRC01:44
ryuo hey Romster01:57
ryuodid you give the theme i ported to pekwm a try?01:57
Romsterah no i should..01:58
Romsteri'm liking that theme.01:58
Romsteri can't release shm memory for some damn strange reason bloody kqemu module..01:59
ryuoi noticed :p02:00
ryuoeven afteri unloaded kqemu02:00
ryuoit wouldnt release the memory it used02:00
Romsterso smae issue..02:00
*** RedShift has joined #crux02:00
Romsteryeah that's jsut it and i can not umount it and lsof says nothing for shm02:01
Romsterso it arn't jsut me.02:01
Romsterryuo, you find a solution or just rebooted.02:01
ryuonope just had to reboot02:02
Romsterbah that sucks02:02
ryuoi'm considering just using virtualbxo02:02
Romsteri've not tryed that ever yet.02:02
Romsterkinda used to qemu02:03
ryuoit has soemthing useful that qemu doesnt02:03
ryuo"seamless integration"02:03
Romsterunless vbox works nearly the same.02:03
ryuoreminds me of wine02:03
Romsteri use wine to but it's no good for somethings yet02:03
ryuofor example, the titlebar fo windows'll show on top of your native one if you have one02:03
ryuoi tried it for awhile...02:04
ryuothe way its structured, its like a free open source version of vmware02:05
Romsteron another note i've changed my tmpfs defaults too noexec,nosuid,defaults02:07
Romsterread about root kits using tmp.02:07
Romstermight aswell goto the new kernel version while i'm at it. ont he reboot02:09
teKI just got a magazine from Fujitsu Siemens were Marc Shuttleworth is interviewd. There's a picture of himming sitting in front of his Library. There's a Book (by Richard Aellen) standing next to him titled 'CRUX'.02:10
ryuoheres a thought02:10
ryuohow can a root kit use /tmp to hijack a system it cant get root access to02:10
Romster /tmp can run anything as any user has has access to the system, mainly servers with php/apache etc exploits.02:11
ryuowhich is why its a good idea to chroot jail servers heh02:12
ryuoonly provide them with what they need ;)02:12
Romsterso if they screw up it's all in the chroot.02:12
ryuothat way if they get hacked, they only effect their jail02:12
ryuoa smart way to keep your whole system from suffering02:12
Romsterevery little bit helps though.02:13
ryuoonly server i would run that lets outsiders in is...02:13
ryuoat system level is sshd02:13
ryuoits a good idea to chroot jail external users who you dont know well02:14
Romsterso they can't leave /home/user02:14
ryuodo symlinks for binaries work in chroot?02:15
ryuoor do you have to copy the whole thing02:15
Romsterhard symlinks work.02:15
Romstersoft ones fail.02:15
ryuothat would be useful for...02:15
ryuolinking what you want them to be able to use without02:15
Romstersafe-build hardlinks some files02:15
ryuohaving to copy the whole binary02:16
Romstersaves space.02:16
ryuowhats the difference between soft and hard links?02:16
Romsteralthough i'm not over sure what editing a chrooted hardlink would do.02:16
Romstersoft just points to the other file.02:16
ryuoif you wanted to stop them from being able to02:17
Romsterhardlinke uses the file's node.02:17
ryuochange what it links to you could...02:17
ryuomake it root editable only02:17
ryuoin fact02:17
Romstersymlinks are the permission of the existing file.02:17
Romsterthat it points too.02:17
ryuothe only directory i've ever created with mode 777 is02:17
ryuothe /tmp02:17
ryuowho really needs execute priveleges in tmp?02:18
Romsterhmm does tmp even need executable access.02:18
ryuoonly time your noexec would cause problems is in02:18
Romsteryeah but i have a tmpfs in /usr/ports/work02:18
Romsterfor that02:18
Romsterset as pkgmk user.02:19
ryuoprobably a good idea to compile as a non-root user02:19
ryuoa malicious Pkgfile can fuck your system up02:19
ryuothough rare02:19
ryuoi noticed your not likely to find malicious software under linux vs windows02:20
ryuoyou know what i think is funny romster?02:22
ryuoI found an instance when bzip2 does worse than gzip02:22
ryuoi tried compressing my themes tar with gzip and bzip2, and bzip2 was larger02:22
ryuowish i knew how to remaster a crux iso, so i could lower its size with lzma compression02:30
ryuointeresting. arch now has regularly builds of e17 in community02:31
pitilloregulary builds?02:33
pitillo"stable" snapshots of a development wm?02:33
ryuoregular builds02:33
ryuosome guy builds cvs snapshots every 2-4 weeks i hear02:33
pitillowhat I said... "stable" snapshots of a development wm02:34
ryuopitillo, its been developement for 8 years02:34
pitilloryuo, yes?02:34
ryuoonly way to get e1702:34
ryuopersonally i wouldnt make any themes for it...02:34
ryuobecause in 1 month it could be too out of "date"02:35
pitillopersonally I don't use any theme wich isn't the default02:35
ryuoits starting to come along though02:35
pitilloI am waiting the new default theme, wich will be a nice one02:35
ryuoit has a file manager thats coming along02:35
ryuostill i dont like e17 much02:36
Romsterryuo, yeah i compile as pkgmk for packages now.02:36
ryuoit has no good clocks for the panel02:36
pitilloryuo, I don't share that opinion. But the best, like I said yesterday, is to have choices02:36
ryuodigital clock is way too small for me to read02:37
ryuoi dont like analog02:37
pitilloryuo, there are 2, the analog and the digital one, if you don't like them, you have the choice of making another one and share it with the comunity02:37
Romsterryuo, tilman said he would add in lzma support for libarchive so then things will work good for compression then.02:37
ryuo<-- i dont know how to code in linux, so shadda up <_<02:37
ryuoshut up02:38
pitillodo you mean I must shut up?02:39
ryuoRomster: would be nice, heh. crux is already small on the CD, just thought it could be shrunk even more02:40
ryuofor people who wish to download but have slow connection speeds02:40
ryuoevery piece you can shave off is good02:40
*** ryuo has quit IRC02:43
Romsterryuo, thats why i'm working on intergrating xdelta into pkgmk and wanting lzma02:43
RedShiftuh delta packaging is so useless03:02
RedShiftsomeone at archlinux tested it and the binary diff were nearly as large as the new packages, rendering delta packages useless03:02
RedShiftthey decided to implement it anyway - wtf03:02
Romsterbinary yes but i'm doing it at the distfile stage..03:04
Romsterdiff of old and new version of foo.tar03:04
Romstertake a look to the wesnoth xdelta files beteween versions 1-6MB approx compared to downloading over 100MB every file change.03:05
Romsterthat's what i'm talking about.03:05

cruxbotopt.git: imagemagick: updated to 6.3.9-004:00
Romsterhmm 6.3.9-0 is beta 6.3.8-11 is stable.04:02
Romsternow i have to really fix ports that break with that version.04:02
pitilloummm interesting, I don't know how but seems that nat isn't working with vbox now...04:03
pitillolet go giving a try rebuilding some deps...04:04

namenlosRomster: in your moc port it would be (imho) not a bad idea, to also install the keymap.exaple file to /usr/share/moc04:57
namenlosi had to extract the sources to find the file...04:58
namenlosonly a suggestion04:58
Romsterwould make it easier to use.04:59
*** RedShift has quit IRC04:59
Romsteri already install the config.example05:01
namenlosRomster: yes, but not the keymap.05:06
Romsterdone pushing it now.05:07
Romsterand done.05:08
*** jtnl has joined #crux05:20
*** ryuo has joined #crux05:36
ryuohey Romster05:36
Romsterya eh still haven't doing a sysup and rebuilding all my pythong stuff atm just uped my python to 2.5.205:36
ryuoRomster: feel like making a method for compiling a kernel that makes it easier for people to compile their own?05:37
Romstersomeone already have packaged the kernel.05:37
ryuofor crux of course05:37
Romsteris it too hard todo the kernel as it is?05:38
ryuosome people have difficulty with configuring it05:38
Romsterall we really need is a decent guide of what is absolutely requred and to use lspci and lsusb to find what device drivers a person needs.05:38
ryuoi noticed that hwd, some utility arch has in its repos, can identify lspci and what modules go with them, if any exist, usually05:39
ryuosometimes i just get tired of customizing kernels for a specific system...05:40
ryuotakes several hours of my time to go through all the options05:40
ryuomaybe we could write a set of scripts to help with the configuring of the kernel new crux users use...05:42
ryuobut this might be better left to05:42
Rotwangryuo: you may use kernel from differnt distro ;]05:43
ryuomake config05:43
ryuoa set of guidelines would probably be easier05:43
ryuoi wonder why the kernel still supports the ISA bus05:44
ryuothat thing is so deprecated its not even funny05:44
namenloswhy can't i use "§" as a key for moc?05:44
* Romster shrugs05:45
ryuo”able for 2 please.05:45
ryuocool alt+ codes work :d05:45
Romsterhow did you get alt+codes to work?05:45
ryuoi'm using them on my virtual console05:45
Romsteri miss that feature05:45
ryuoin irssi righ now05:45
ryuonot sure if they work in xorg05:46
Romsteralt+numpad was one thing i used to use alot.05:46
Romsteri doubt it i'd offound it if it did.05:46
ryuodoes not work in xorg05:46
Romsteri've thought of a hardware configuratior but the kernel changes so damn fast it would be a nightmare to keep up with05:46
ryuobut it works on the regular console05:46
Romsteri want it in xorg damn it.05:47
ryuoRomster, how about we write a blueprint for compiling a kernel?05:47
ryuoor guide05:47
ryuoor whatever05:47
Romstereh maybe i do have a lot of tigns todo as it is.05:47
ryuolike most important components05:47
ryuoetc, PATA/SATA controllers05:48
Romsterlibata hotplug can't really do FS05:48
Romsterother than defaults for new systems.05:48
ryuoi've never used SATA, etc, hotplug05:49
ryuoseems kinda stupid05:49
Romsterand not always want kernel video as they may want to use binary video drivers.05:49
ryuoi do use scsi hotplug for USB devices but thats it05:49
Romsteri've removed core/hotplug05:49
Romsteron all my systems05:49
ryuoI've even seen PCI hotplug05:49
ryuoand my question is "when would i ever use this?"05:50
Romsterthere is even cpu and memory hotplug *shrugs*05:50
ryuoi'm used to shutting down to do any hardware changes05:50
Romsterthat's even mor erare than finding pci.05:50
Romstermore rare*05:50
ryuothe only hotplug i find useful is for stuff like USB05:50
ryuowhere you have to have it05:50
ryuoor its kinda useless05:50
Romsterusb is hot plug by design05:50
ryuono duh =p05:51
Romsterwel defalts for ACPI etc would be nice for power saving.05:51
ryuoi streamlined an old version of windows to use for my virtual machine05:51
ryuowindows 200005:51
ryuoi streamlined all the hotfixes available onto it and removed IE/WMP05:52
Romsteri have win 3.11, win xp home xp pro, 98se, win me (worst ever)05:52
ryuowhen i tested it, the machine reported only05:52
ryuo~45 MB of ram being used05:52
Romsternot bad05:52
ryuowindows 2000 is light by design05:52
ryuounlike XP...05:52
Romsterif only this kqemu didn't steal my /dev/shm <<05:52
ryuodo you use the frame buffer at all?05:53
Romsterfscking thing.05:53
ryuoI've started using it for my virtual consoles05:53
Romsteri haven't actually i dunno how that works.05:53
ryuoset to 256  colors05:53
ryuoits most useful feature is you can change the resolution05:53
Romsterbut it's on the install cd so maybe i should mess with it sometime.05:53
Romsteri'm in xorg most times on my desktop pc.05:54
ryuoand it also opens up devices to output video to framebuffer instead of xorg05:54
ryuoi even heard xfce4 will run in  the framebuffer05:54
ryuoRomster, did you know theres pseudo "window managers" for text mode? XD05:55
Romsternot used any of though.05:55
ryuoi guess if you wanted an old style computer05:55
ryuoetc, DOS, you could use the framebuffer for your graphics needs05:56
ryuoand it'd be like DOS =p05:56
ryuobut really, how many people really prefer the framebuffer over xorg?05:56
ryuosome cross-platform apps will work in the framebuffer, but only because their based off sdl05:57
ryuoman i'd probably switch to using text mode exclusively if i could get all my apps to work in it :p05:58

ryuohey Romster06:54
ryuohad a chance to try the theme i ported?06:55
Romsterargh i'm messing witha  makefile guess i should try it before i forget...06:55
ryuoi found a new panel app06:55
ryuolooks pretty interesting06:55
*** errdil has joined #crux06:56
ryuoonly problem is it that it uses a few obscure libraries06:56
Romsterbah how do i escape $ in a Makefile...06:56
Romster\$ don't work.06:57
Romsterhmm if there arn't many just port them if it's any good.06:57
ryuoi'm trying to get it running first06:57
ryuorunning from a terminal in xorg gives me some errors06:58
ryuonothing i cant fix06:58
ryuolike missing fonts06:58
ryuostuff i dont even have installed06:58
ryuoit does use imlib2 though06:58
ryuonot as though imlib2 is bad...06:58
ryuojust seems redundant sometimes06:58
Romsterah crap i think i need to use $$06:59
ryuoi can count my fingers all the apps i've ever used that used imlib206:59
ryuoon my*06:59
ryuofeh, idesk, eterm, and now this terminal06:59
ryuooh and pypanel07:00
ryuoyou noticed how perl is a de facto standard on all linux boxes, and python is also one, but not always present?07:00
Romsteryay that got it.07:01
ryuohrm python 2.5 has an update07:01
Romsterfeh is nice07:01
ryuofeh is okay, but i dont like it much07:01
ryuoi would prefer a GUI image viewer over it07:01
ryuosome stuff i've grown used to using a GUI for07:01
Romsterffmpeg giblib libast pekwm07:02
Romsterthat i use imlib2 on.07:02
ryuopekwm doesnt use imlib2 actually07:02
ryuonot anymore07:02
ryuoit draw png and jpeg directly now07:02
Romsterthat needs tobe fixed then.07:02
ryuoas does the DL url07:03
Romsterthat got changed.07:03
ryuoi have a few different distros i use in different environments07:03
Romsterbut the entire pore looks ecky.07:03
ryuoonly 3 i really like any more07:03
ryuoarch, crux, and lunar07:03
ryuoon my future UMPC device, i might just stick to the framebuffer instead of xorg07:04
ryuoin some cases,  xorg is more of a burden than its worth07:05
Romsterhmm now to see how bad i borked safe-build this time, i've added a Makefile moved some stuff and added in a option to chose what crux version to use on the command line.07:06
ryuowhats safe-build07:07
Romsterxorg is good for a full blown desktop07:07
Romsterdon't need ti for smaller stuff.07:07
Romstermy chroot wrapper to build ports in.07:07
Romstermy little project07:07
ryuosadly, i know of no browser thats as good as firefox but will run in the framebuffer07:07
Romsterfirefox3 <<07:07
ryuofirefox3 runs in the framebuffer?07:07
*** errdil has quit IRC07:08
ryuoi'm sticking to 2 until 3 is stabilized07:08
Romsterdunno but ti's a step up from 207:08
Romstertrench has ported it.07:08
ryuoi'm waiting until mozilla officially replaces 2 with 307:08
*** treach has joined #crux07:08
Romsterlol don't hold your breath ryuo07:09
ryuoit'll probably be a good while07:09
ryuoa year at most hopefully07:09
ryuojust wish you guys had a seamonkey port =p07:09
ryuoits a nostalgic web browser for people who used to use mozilla/netscape =p07:10
Romsteri used to use mozilla07:10
Romstersomeone had a port i copyied it but didn't get to build it right.07:11
ryuomaybe you can try making a seamonkey por07:11
ryuothere isnt one really in all the crux ports07:11
treachiirc predatorfreak has/had a working port for it07:11
*** destruct_ has joined #Crux07:11
Romsteri haev a seamonkey port but it's unfinished.07:11
ryuoimho, flock is a wierd browser07:11
Romsterdunno where i copied it from.07:12
Romsterbut wen i went to compile it i lost a stack of files out of the .footprint07:12
ryuoi find web browsers a hastle to setup a pkgfile for07:12
Romsterdilo is a werid browser.07:12
ryuousually you have tons of patches to apply07:12
ryuoas well07:12
ryuonot to mention all the config options07:13
ryuobrowsers are one of the most complex internet apps to date07:13
Romsterother than tunderbird.07:13
ryuoeasy to use, but hard to deal with at the technical level07:13
ryuolooking at all the config options in firefox07:13
ryuomakes me feel like i'm looking through a windows registry07:14
ryuomost of the options make no sense07:14
Romsterhkey_hash stuff.07:14
ryuoi betcha configuring FVWM would be easier07:14
Romsterman i'm puting a pizza on i'm f'ing hungery now. <<07:15
ryuoi like pekwm pretty well07:15
ryuohas all the features i've come to expect in a window manager07:15
ryuoi setup my pekwm theme with all pngs07:15
ryuooptimized with optipng07:15
Romsterfor me that was in KDE then jumped into pekwm i've got used to most of pekwm07:15
thrice`have a good screenshot of your pekwm all setup?07:16
ryuoi dont have all my supplemental software but i can show you my current window decor, etc.07:16
ryuosupplemental, like panels.07:16
Romsteri still need to figure out transparancy07:16
ryuonice thing is, pekwm also has a harbour which works with dock apps07:16
ryuoRomster, i got transparency working =D07:17
*** Rotwang has quit IRC07:17
ryuoI use it in my window buttons07:17
Romsterhow does that stuff work?07:17
ryuoand rounded borders07:17
ryuoi set it up in gimp by adding the alpha channel07:17
ryuoand when the buttons are loaded by pekwm07:17
ryuothe alpha parts absorb the titlebars background07:18
ryuoalpha transparency is used in pixmaps to give windows rounded edges as well07:18
ryuoor to make them look transparent07:18
ryuounlike some window managers that can't handle transparency at all07:18
Romsterholly hell if i haven't broken anything in this safe-build verion i'll be suprised,
ryuothrice`: still want a snapshot?07:19
Romsterryuo, ah07:19
treachis that Holly Fucks bsm sister?07:19
Romsteri need a good read of seting transparancy stuff in xorg.07:19
ryuoRomster, i implement it in a basic form in my pixmaps07:20
ryuoit can be used by both xpms and pngs07:20
Romsteranyways now i'm gonna put a pizza in the oven.07:20
Romstertreach, good one..07:20
ryuoin russia, the oven puts the pizza in yo07:20

Romsterya i'm so gonna load that up after i get food <<07:29
Romsterdunno how you can handle the scroll bar on the left.07:29
ryuowhich one?07:29
ryuothe one in aterm?07:29
ryuoi havent configured it yet =p07:30
ryuoi like using optipng on a theme after i'm finished with it07:30
ryuoreduces the file size even more07:30
Romstersounds good07:31
ryuomain reason i like png over xpm07:31
ryuobetter compression07:31
ryuobut some WMs only accept xpm07:31
ryuoya know07:32
ryuoif xf86 hadnt gone insane07:32
ryuowe'd still be using it07:32
ryuopekwm reminds me of FVWM, its configuration can be defined to just abotu anything07:33
ryuoyou can name your stuff just about anything ;)07:33
ryuomaybe one day pekwm can set your background for you07:34
ryuoright now you have to use a 3rd party program to do that07:34
Romsteryeah i use feh for my background.07:36
Romsterwould be nice if i could have a diferent background for each desktop07:36
Romsteri think it's possable.07:37
ryuonever thought about that07:37
ryuomaybe if you could make each workspace a display?07:37
ryuoso you tried that theme yet? :o07:43
Romstereating right now07:55
Romsterthen i will07:55

treachnice.. google gets really confused with big numbers apparently. :D07:57
treach889 million Euros = 1.317498 billion U.S. dollars07:58
ryuoactually wouldnt it be07:58
ryuo~1.8 USD?07:58
treachryuo: well, I kind of doubt the exchange rate is *that* bad07:58
ryuotreach: its currently about 2x07:59
treachnote the use of million vs billion..07:59
ryuoi should know...07:59
treachwheras if you use 1 million it gets it right07:59
ryuoits funny08:00
ryuoaustralian money is worth even less than american :>08:00
treachnot that I'd mind if they had finded MS  1.317498 billion dollars. :p08:00
ryuoMS has over 40 billion it seems08:01
ryuoif you take MS's bid for yahoo seriously08:01
jjpkThe cost of doing business within the EU. ;)08:01
treachthey don't08:01
treachryuo: that deal would make them borrow money, for the first time ever in their history08:02

jjpkDesperate? I doubt that.08:02
treachyeah, when you're at the top, there's pretty much only one way to go08:02
ryuoi betcha the only reason the IE got upgraded is because firefox started to "steal" their browser market share.08:02
treachof course. there were no reason to care before08:03
jjpkThey are trying to find new niches to profit from, as their adventure in the EU are becoming increasingly more expensive.08:03
treachjjpk: I doubt they will leave us alone.. :/08:03
ryuoi wonder if microsoft is starting to feel the weight of trying to keep up on all their different business fronts08:03
jjpkThey can afford it for now, they'll do anything to delay opening up their specs to allow for "better" interoperability with rival products.08:03
ryuoi get the impression mozilla is winning against IE, but i could be wrong...08:04
treachI don't think so. This is a fight they can't win, and shareholders will not sit idle and watch them waste billions on childish tantrums08:04
jjpkI disagree.08:05
jjpk(about the mozilla winning market share from IE)08:05
treachjjpk: if they waste too much money on this the board members could get sued.08:05
ryuoi wouldnt be surprised if microsoft is starting to crumble, slowly but surely.08:06
jjpkMS has hit a roadblock, but it is very unlikely they will disappear.08:06

jjpkNot to mention the foreign interference aspect.09:05
treachjjpk: there are at *least* two other things that kills it as well.09:05
treach1. If you are to be convicted for assisting with a crime (sorry, don't know the proper english term) then *someone* has to be convicted for the original crime first.09:06
treachand so far nobody have.09:07
jjpkIt would be a shellshocking thought IF the swedish authorities are not appeasing the movie and recording industry lobbies.09:07
jjpkI think we will be seeing some sneaky maneuvering by the courts and the state because they are in trouble with this case.09:07
treachsecondly, "assistance" only applies if the original perpetrator commited a crime that resulted in a sentence consisting of minimum 2 years in prison.09:08
treachso far, nobody did.09:08
treachof course, I fully expect them to get convicted in the first instance, which constists largely by easily confused laymen.09:09
jjpkWonder if any last-minute law additions or changes will be thrown in to "help" the prosecution.09:09
treachdoesn't help09:09

predatorfreakjoacim: I debunked that shit once.14:22
joacimI did my own benchmark, Terminal was a bit faster, but i still prefer urxvt14:23
predatorfreakAll the scrolling speed tests actually wind up being more limited by X redraw rate.14:23
predatorfreakSome apps just have less shit in between them and X.14:23
predatorfreakSo they redraw faster14:23
predatorfreakor do less crap that slows them down.14:23
predatorfreakI remember someone said urxvt took like 1 min to scroll 10K lines of text14:24
joacimTerminal and gnome terminal has annoyances that prevents me from being comfortable with them14:24
joacimand konsole is just too hard to use14:24
predatorfreakand my box did it in ~4 seconds14:24
predatorfreakSo, I went "BULLSHIT!"14:24

predatorfreakand utilise a unicode terminal :)14:41
jjpkSeems not everyone is sold on utf-8 enabled filenames and capability.14:42
jjpkI think it's good because you just need one encoding for most character sets.14:42

jaegerwhat kind of effort is required to switch?14:46

jjpkjaeger: it was not very demanding.14:46
joacimsome people there still thinks iso is the "official" charset of efnet14:46

predatorfreakExcluding Konqueror.16:47
ryuoKonqueror kinda sucks16:47
predatorfreakBut fuck, I don't want KDE for a browser16:47
ryuoyou have to have gtk2 for any flash player to work16:47
treachjoacim: just set it to expert and forget about it. :>16:47
RyoSpredatorfreak: thats what bothers me with konqueror16:47
ryuoflash-plugin or even gnash16:47
joacimbut the ui gets too messy :p16:47
ryuomain reason i hate kde16:48
treachmmh, it's not mature as I said.16:48
predatorfreaktreach: Problem is you still need either Firefox or xulrunner16:48
predatorfreakBoth of which are still FUCKING HUGE16:48
joacimI just want the beginner toolbar and expert config tools =)16:48
ryuotheres flock and songbird16:48
ryuothose are more like special purpose web browsers than anything else16:48
predatorfreaksongbird isn't really a browser.16:48
predatorfreakFlock is a mod of firefox16:48
predatorfreakSame with lolifox.... creepy browser there too16:49

predatorfreakjoacim: Go back to #elementaryschool, you pedo.16:49
* ryuo cracks joaxim's nutz with his nutcracker.16:50
joacimmy last girlfriends father already did that to me16:52
treachpredatorfreak: did you check it out, or did you just have a kneejerk reaction?16:52
predatorfreaktreach: For what?16:52
treachyour pedo ranting16:52
predatorfreakOh, lolifox at one time had a straight link to 4chan's "lolicon" board.16:53
predatorfreakThen they removed it later16:53
joacimI wasnt on 4chan when they had a lolicon board16:55
joacimi found it some time after they removed it16:55
treachIt basically came across as a ff version for anime nuts.16:55
ryuoMS fined 1.337 billion16:55
joacimfound 4chan16:55
predatorfreaktreach: I thought they had some random extensions in it too.16:56
predatorfreakBut TBH, they could have split out the extensions16:56
predatorfreakand provided the artwork separate.16:56
treachmaybe, can't say I looked too hard at it. ;)16:56
predatorfreaktreach: I was only messing with joacim anyway.16:58
predatorfreakBut, side note, Industrial music is fucking addicting.16:58
rehabdollhaha /b/ = win16:59
jjpkAny names in particular?16:59
predatorfreakjjpk: For industrial? KMFDM, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Nine Inch Nails.17:00

Romsterthe big web browser chat again18:11
treachbig problems usually creates big (and useless) discussions. :P18:12
predatorfreakRomster: We keep coming back to it because all the browsers suck!18:15
treachisn't there IE4Lin or something like that? :p18:15
predatorfreaktreach: BURN!!!!!18:16
jaegerIE is not excluded from the "browsers that suck" list18:16
jaegernone of them are :P18:16
predatorfreakjaeger: In fact.18:16
predatorfreakIt's number 1 on that list!18:16
predatorfreak"All browsers suck, some just suck less."18:16
treachpredatorfreak: that won't help. I'm firewalled. :D18:16
* predatorfreak nukes treach's firewall18:17
joacimall email clients suck too18:18
joacimI've never been able to find one I liked18:18
predatorfreakjoacim: Everything sucks.18:18
predatorfreakSome just suck less.18:18
Romsterpredatorfreak, yeah not one does exactly what i want.18:19
treachwell, there are degrees even in hell wrt email clients.18:19
Romsteryeah that hardly works anymore18:19
Romsterunless you use a lokd wine version18:19
jaegeryou could try wine-doors, I think it's IE6 in that one18:20
Romsterie4linux has support for 5,5.5,6 and 718:20
treachas a kde user, I'm pretty happy with konqueror actually, I just wish it handled js better and that there was something similar to noscript. :/18:20
joacimI wish I could disable javascript18:21
joacimmost sites I visit break if i disable it18:21
treachyeah, sucks. :/18:21
Romsteryeah i hate sites that require JS18:22
Romsterit's ment to enhance but not be damn well required in my books18:22
treachkonqueror supports whitelisting, but that's rather backwards. Noscript is just much easier.18:22
*** j^2 has joined #crux18:25
Romsteryeah i like noscript18:26
Romsterpredatorfreak, nvidia-169.12 jsut came out.18:52
predatorfreakRomster: ports -u18:52
Romsterah.. lol18:52
jaegerhe updated it hours ago18:52
Romsterdamn it.18:52
predatorfreakNoticed during my Gentoo-forums-check-of-the-day18:53
predatorfreakRicers jump on every new release :P18:53
treachpredatorfreak: ck4up ftw. ;)18:55
Romsteryeah i use ck4up all the time.18:55
Romstersometimes it misses something and i gotta edit the conf18:55
predatorfreakI use it for tracking some things, nvidia just doesn't track well via ck4up.18:56
predatorfreakAlso, STUPID BASH!18:56
predatorfreakWhy can't it have a damn method of testing if something is numeric or not built in?!18:56
treachuse zsh instead then. :)18:56
predatorfreaktreach: It's a shell script I distribute.18:56
predatorfreakzsh isn't a viable option.18:56
treachheh, ok18:56
Romsteractually it would be nice to setup rss feeds on everything that has them18:57
Romsteruse sed -e 's/[0-9]*//', i guess.18:58
Romsterunless there is a better way maybe grep dunno.18:58
predatorfreak[[ `echo $num | sed 's/^[-+0-9][0-9]*//' | wc -c` -eq 1 ]]18:58
Romsterand test for output18:58
predatorfreakTHIS IS INSANITY18:58
predatorfreakEven perl has a test-if-number option18:58
Romsterwhat about decimal dot?18:59
predatorfreakI hate you bash.18:59
predatorfreakI hate you bash.18:59
Romsterthat should be sugested for the next realse..18:59
predatorfreaksed 's/^[-+0-9].[0-9]*//'19:00
predatorfreakBest I can come up with.19:00
Romsterecho 457.5762 | sed -e 's/^[-+0-9].[0-9]*//'19:02
Romsterah \.19:02
Romsteror the . is any char and not a actual period.19:02
predatorfreakdamn it.19:03
*** treach has left #crux19:03
*** treach has quit IRC19:03
Romsternot sure how good that is but it's a improvment.19:03
Romsterdon't really need the + ?19:04
*** mavrick61 has quit IRC19:04
*** Dudde has quit IRC19:04
Romsterpositive numbers don't have + on them19:04
*** mavrick61 has joined #crux19:05
Romsterand hmm 234.255.4 failes so if more than one period exists it's a invald number.19:05
predatorfreakI feel like naming this function "WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THIS BASH"19:05
*** Dudde has joined #crux19:05
predatorfreaksed 's/^[-0-9]*\.[0-9].*$//'19:06
predatorfreakI hate bash.19:06
predatorfreakI mean, for fucks sake, ZSH has this!19:06
predatorfreakHow hard is it to put in a simple bloody function to test if something is numeric or not...19:07
Romsterlimits - to the first char so - can't be 0-94.319:09
Romsterbut has to be -094.319:10
Romsteralthought the 0 is not needed just a example.19:10
predatorfreakRomster:  's/^[-0-9]*\.[0-9].*$//' works best19:10
Romsterand you can't do .*$ on the end or 123.456.789 gets though you need to error or return false if you see more than one period.19:11
predatorfreakRomster:  's/^[-0-9].*$//' works best19:11
predatorfreakThat even gets19:11
Romsterecho -547.445.252 | sed -e 's/^[-0-9].*$//'19:11
Romstermore than one period is nto a number though?19:12
Romsterunless you don't care about that.19:12
predatorfreakThe period isn't matching periods.19:12
predatorfreakIt's matching everything else.19:12
Romsterbah you took the \ off the \.19:12
predatorfreakThat's the point.19:12
Romsteri didn't notice till you said.19:12
Romsterso 123.456.789 is numic but invalid with the 2 dots.19:13
predatorfreakSo then we shouldn't match it? XD19:14
Romsterdunno what's it gonna be used for?19:15
Romsterhow critical does it have to be.19:15
predatorfreakMaking sure shit's actually a valid number?19:15
Romsterwill it see comas too? 123,456.719:15
Romsterk so that rules that out.19:23
Romsterso check for one dot if 2 error.19:23
Romsterlooking at a case finction.19:23
Romsterhmm i thought {1,3} matches 1-3 chars.19:24
Romsterbut eh you don't need a coma so thats not needed to check correct comma placement.19:25
Romsterecho 52 | sed -e 's/^[0-9]{1,3}$//'19:37
Romstermatch 1 to 3 chars that's 2 chars so it should return nothing.19:38
Romstermeh damn regualr expressions.19:38
Romsterjust messing around and ound that.19:38
Romsterhmm ok i had to escape the curly brackets strange.19:45
predatorfreak 's/^[-0-9]*\.[0-9]*$//' is "good enough"19:46
predatorfreakI don't have a billion years to rape regexes19:46
Romsterwhy is it i had to escape curly brackets yet on this site it dosn't.19:48
predatorfreakRomster: The proper thing would be for BASH TO NOT SUCK.19:48
Romstera C function to check isnum19:48
Romsterwould be ideal.19:49
Romsterif [ -isnum $1 ]19:49
Romstermaybe someone can hack bash and add ina  function then submit the patch to the bash devs19:49
Romsteralthough the rfc might not even have anything in it for such things then again bash has crap in it that's not standared in the rfc too.19:50
Romsteranother option would be to have a small executable to call.19:51
Romstermaybe bc might work dunno.19:52
predatorfreakRomster: Optionally, I could just convert to bloody perl.19:53
Romsterya if you like perl.19:54
predatorfreakRomster: Less annoying than Python..19:55
predatorfreakWell, matter of opinion.19:57
predatorfreakBut I prefer perl to python19:57
*** vico has quit IRC19:58
Romsterthen convert it to that then  guess.19:58
Romsterif you think it's worth it.19:58
Romsternote to self don't touch any more d-net eathernet switches. there carzy fucks that do stuupid things and don't restet properly on a short power intruption.20:03
Romsterhmm i shouuld add in a big capactor in that unit that would get around that.20:03
