*** clb has joined #crux14:07
jaegerodd that sometimes even if the bot is running it won't reconnect14:07
predatorfreakjaeger: In my experience, vlc is a bitch.14:07
predatorfreakand mplayer is far superior :D14:07
jaegerI've never had trouble with it until 0.8.6c14:07
jaegerand mplayer blows at dvd navigation. otherwise I agree, it's great14:08
predatorfreakI don't need no DVD navigation :P14:08
jaegerI do, hence this effort14:08
treachxine has worked well enough for me.14:09
treachonly problem I had with it was .mkv files, iirc14:09
jaegerat least it built this time but it froze after playing about 2 seconds of mpeg2 video14:10
predatorfreakjaeger: Yay vlc?14:11
tilmanit's funny how mplayer has sucked at dvdnav since forever14:12
jaegeryou'd think by now someone would have fixed mplayer+dvdnav14:12
predatorfreakThey're too busy developing ffmpeg to care.14:13
predatorfreakSo long as they can watch the main track, most of the devs don't bother.14:13
tilmanseems so yeah :)14:13
treachseems like the correct priority to me. :)14:14
predatorfreaktilman: For the most part, that's all I do anyway.14:14
predatorfreakSo I don't need any fancy dvdnav.14:14

Rotwangha! I have something to do at the weekend!14:17
Rotwangmy life is going to be exciting!14:17
Rotwangsplashutils is the shit14:18
tilmansplashscreen stuff?14:18
predatorfreakRotwang: Fancy pretty boot logo stuff, yeah14:20
Rotwangyep ;]14:20
predatorfreakRotwang: you and your fancy pretty boot logo14:21
treach!KISS :>14:21
tilmanmy system boots so fast, i think a splashscreen would be pointless14:22
treachmore or less.14:22
tilmanthough i should get that login manager again14:22
tilmanthe one by cptn and sip14:22
* tilman disappers14:23
Rotwangyou can do more things than only bootsplash14:24
predatorfreakRotwang: FANCY PRETTY STUFF!14:25
Rotwangfbcondecor - It is a kernel patch that adds eye-candy by making it possible to display pictures in the background of system consoles14:25
predatorfreakRotwang: FANCY PRETTY STUFF!14:25
predatorfreakRotwang: FANCY PRETTY STUFF!14:25
Rotwangpredatorfreak: i love fancy pretty stuff14:25
* predatorfreak shows Rotwang the door to Ubuntu14:25
Rotwangespecially pretty girls14:25
* treach calls people in white coats, tells them to bring two jackets14:25
Rotwangbut they dont want me14:25
predatorfreakRotwang: Wrong distro.14:25
Rotwangpredatorfreak: i dont think so :\14:26
predatorfreaktreach: HAHAHA YOU'LL NEVER CATCH ME!14:26
treachoh, yeah?14:26
Rotwangcrux might contain fancy stuff14:26
predatorfreakOkay I'll stop being crazy now14:26
Rotwangso why gnoime ports ;]14:27
Rotwangor kde?14:27
Rotwangevery cruxer should use dwm or wmii or awesome14:27
jaegerjesus, everyone uses it their own way, get over it14:28
treachkde and gnome(i suppose) isn't about eyecandy, thus the comparision falls on it's face14:28
predatorfreaktreach: Yay sanity!14:28
predatorfreakBut whatever, Rotwang, if you like your fancy pretty crap.14:29
predatorfreakGo for it.14:29
* Rotwang likes fancy pretty crap14:30
Rotwangtreach: but gnome or kde are not KISS, are they?14:31
treachthe more I see people rant about prettyness and eyecandy, the more I long for CDE..14:32
treachRotwang: depends on how you define "simple" :>14:32
jaegerthey would only rant then about how ugly CDE is or something else14:32
treachjaeger: I guess it would give them something to whine about for real :P14:33
Rotwangtreach: ubuntu is KISS too in that case ;]14:34
treach"simple" isn't a simple word.14:34
predatorfreakPick a definition and stick with it :P14:36
treachtoo bad it changes with context. :D14:37
treacha tank is simple compared to a moonlander, an ak47 is simple compared to a tank, and a club is simple compared to the ak.14:38
predatorfreaktreach: I'd rather have a tank than a club ;)14:38
treachI'd say that depends pretty much on the terrain. :p14:39
predatorfreakFine, a Jet Fighter/14:39
predatorfreak-/ +.14:39
treachI can guarantee from personal experience that the club will work much better in a swamp14:39
predatorfreakFuck terrain, I'll bomb 'em from the air :D14:40
treachsorry that wasn't on the list14:40
predatorfreaktreach: Moonlander was.14:40
predatorfreakand Jet is the intermediary.14:40
predatorfreakYou just forgot one :P14:40
treachyour fancy jet will still be pretty useless quickly without extensive maintainence.14:40
predatorfreakSo will any gun,14:41
predatorfreak-, +.14:41
predatorfreakor any tank.14:41
treachbut not the club.14:41
predatorfreaktreach: But with the club14:41
predatorfreakyou have to close in, beat me to death14:41
treachpredatorfreak: ahe, you're discounting russian tanks..14:41
predatorfreakand hope I'm not stronger than you.14:41
treachbut it'll work. :)14:41
predatorfreakEven with a pistol, I stand a better chance against you than you do against me.14:41
Rotwangrussian tank dont need any maintenance14:41
predatorfreakExcept at point blank range.14:42
Rotwangthey just need fuel14:42
treachor, what's needed can be done with a sledgehammer14:42
Rotwangand someone inside to drive it14:42
predatorfreaktreach: or even simpler.14:42
predatorfreakA big rock.14:42
predatorfreakor, GASP, your fists!14:42
treachmight work too.14:42
predatorfreaktreach: Obviously though, in this day and age.14:43
predatorfreakYou wouldn't go to war wielding clubs ;)14:43
treachtrue. but one should never underestimate the necessity of field repairs.14:43
predatorfreaktreach: Yeah, of course you have to maintain equipment.14:44
predatorfreakBut, my point is, right tool for the job ;)14:44
treachsure. or do the right job with your tool.14:45
predatorfreakLinux is the same way, you might be able to get something done with only a really-bloody-complex command line program coded by a monkey.14:45
treachyou mean transcode? :>14:45
predatorfreakBut obviously, a superior tool is the better choice.14:45
predatorfreaktreach: Hence why I use mencoder.14:45
predatorfreakor when I need a fighter-jet for encoding, avisynth.14:45
treachor when torrenting, azureus. :x14:46
predatorfreakPfft, screw that bloated POS.14:46
predatorfreakI'll keep deluge, thank you very much14:46
jaegerargh, why does media playing have to be such a fucking mess?14:55
teKfits (into) the whole image14:55
predatorfreakjaeger: I'd ask the same question of media encoding on Linux..14:59
predatorfreakClosest solution to fixing the madly disjoint and scatter-shot bullcrap is gstreamer and there's like no decent encoding tools built around it.15:00
jaegerwell, I'm done fucking around with it, can't make it work in a satisfying way15:09
jaegerRotwang: if you want to mess with it, feel free:{ffmpeg,x264,vlc}-svn.prt.tar.gz15:09
Rotwangjaeger: thanks ;]15:12
Rotwangill mess with it as soon as ill finish messing with my fancy pretty crap15:13

RotwangI've saw your nick before16:06

drijensomeone tel jaeger i'll pay him $20 to update his iso :D16:06
treachthe gentleman finish is only two typos thick. :)16:06
ryuohey treach16:07
treachdrijen: you could tell him yourself, since he's here.16:07
ryuowhat tools do you guys use to make the CRUX cd?16:07
ryuois it like an automated process, to a certain extent?16:07
drijenjaeger, i'll pay you $20 to update the iso :D16:07
treachryuo:  I've actually never done it, but I think so.16:08
*** DarkNekros has joined #crux16:08
drijenryuo there are several ways to do it16:08
ryuowould be nice if you could use bzip2 or lzma to package ports16:08
drijenlive scripts, a dd way and one mre16:08
ryuoinstead of just gzip16:08
ryuowhat? gzip sucks for compression :/16:09
nipuLryuo: who said you couldn't?16:09
* drijen flings cheezits at ryuo 16:09
treachdoes it make any *real* difference?16:09
nipuLpkgutils is opensource fool16:09
drijenalso, you are compressing mostly text16:09
drijennto much to do there.16:09
treachalso, k, those files are smaller, but I'd wager the difference is just a few MB, which makes ROI rather doubtful.16:13
jjpkText compresses well, but binary does not.16:29
*** Rotwang has quit IRC16:29
jjpkA minimal increase in compression is not worth the change.16:31
*** RedShift has quit IRC16:40
*** discomaxus has quit IRC17:03

*** predatorfreak has quit IRC17:29
RomsterteK, i/m here now17:33
Romsterryuo, if you had read once tilman adds in lzma after the rewrite of lzma and becomes stabe (t6he rewrite) he'll add it to libarchive then pkgutils will work transparantly with lzma17:36
Romsteralso i notice man pages can work in bzip2 and lzma too.17:37
Romsterbut bzip2 decompressions is slow while lzma and gunzip is fast at decompression17:37

Romsterah k.18:38
Romsterthen others you jsut changed the maintainer line they didn't need updating?18:38
teKright. The ones I only changed the MT line are checked to be uptodate, though18:40
RomsterteK, can you refrmat the meta so you don't have crap like this "# Packager:            treach, treachster at gmail dot com"18:40
Romsterand there is a single space between : and text18:40
Romster# Packager: treach, treachster at gmail dot com18:40
teKI will remember it for future18:41
Romsterit's quite ugly how prologic has them.18:41
teKfuture commits will be more beautiful :>18:42
Romsterit's not a big thing i just like neatness and consistantant.18:42
Romsterand i use tabs for indentation, but not on the meta lines.18:43
teK'f course and it's no problem.18:43
teKbut NOW I will go to bed.18:43

sepenabout that18:47
Romstersepen, can do it with sed too.18:47
sepenwell night18:47
ryuoRomster: imagine how log the crux ISO can go if it was compressed with lzma18:49
ryuointernally that is18:49
ryuolzma: how low can your files go?18:50
Romsterya it'll happen if tilman adds support later on if the iso dosn't i'll package my own if i can be bothered too.18:50
Romsterryuo, also the xdelta thing i'm working on for source files to speed up changing versons.18:51
ryuolzma is pretty powerful18:52
ryuoi no nothing that can best the king of compression18:52
Romsterwell back in the day i used to use pkzip then rar lha and then the best tool then was jar same company that made jar18:53
*** drijen has quit IRC18:53
Romsterand then i found 2mgui to make floppys format bigger18:53
Romstersince then nothng bet jar18:54
ryuowhat about lzma?18:54
Romsterbut jar was stuck to dos.18:54
Romsterlzma wasn't around then.18:54
Romsteri should try a comparision between jar and lzma18:54
*** ryuo has quit IRC18:57
Romsterand he is off again...18:57
*** ryuo has joined #crux18:57
Romsteryou always keep going on me..18:57
ryuoit crashes while i'm on the console18:58
ryuothen xdm reboots18:58
Romsterno idea graphics driver?18:58
Romsteranyways look at ya logs.18:58
ryuoNVIDIA 169.1218:58
Romsteri'm still on 100.14.19 none of the 169.xx drivers including 12 worked for me right.18:59
Romsterxorg and messages logs.18:59
Romsterthat jar link is what i used years ago that bet everything else.18:59
Romsterspecaslly with lare chunks of memory for compression.19:00
ryuoall i found is an stdin error19:00
Romsterwhats it say?19:01
Romsteri'd sugest drop back to nvidia-100.14.19 and see if that stops your random xorg crashes.19:02
Romsteri got a port of that in
Romsterall just downgrade the version string.19:03
ryuomaybe its the way i initiate xorg19:03
ryuonot xdm19:04
Romstermy only thought the 169.xx is still considered unstable.19:04
ryuoi mean my .xsession19:04

ryuobecause everything pekwm restarts19:06
ryuoit gets run19:07
ryuoi only need to run these apps once19:07
Romsteri got pypanel in my ~/.pekwm/start19:07
ryuoi would end up with more than one panel19:07
Romsterhmm i see19:07
Romsterhasn't on pypanel.19:07
ryuoit doesnt do that19:07
ryuoit runs everytme u reset but19:07
ryuosince pypanel is present19:07
ryuoit doesnt run another one19:07

ryuobmpanel is fairly basic19:08
ryuodoesnt require python19:08
Romsterthat's not a problem as i have quite a few python dependencys now ruby is a bitch i only use it for ck4up19:08

nipuLbetter would be, . /etc/pkgmk.conf; if [ ! -e "$PKGMK_PACKAGE_DIR/$name#$version-$release.pkg.tar.gz" ]22:53
RomsternipuL, yes that's on my todo list.22:54
