janobonoHello I'm new CRUX user and I have some questions06:45
RyoSquestions that are explained in the handbook, or other questions? :P06:46
RyoSand hi :P06:46
janobonoIs there any way to download ports from windows OS because I don't have internet connection at home06:46
janobonoand at work I have to use Win06:46
RyoSthats gonna be a shitload of work i guess, no idea about the rsync repos though, should be possible06:47
RyoSyou need to fetch a) the ports trees you want to use, and b) the distfiles you will need06:47
janobonoI'm java programmer06:47
janobonobut we develop for win users only06:48
RyoSuncool :P *SCNR*06:48
janobonoat home I'm using linux about 3 years06:48
janobonoArch06:48
RyoSwell, like i said, you gotta fetch the port trees and distfiles06:48
janobonowas first06:48
janobonoand now after LFS I'd like to use CRUX but I dont want to build everithing from script06:49
RyoSwell then crux is not for you06:50
RyoSthere are no packages provided06:50
janobonoI don,t need packages06:50
janobonoonly ports but not through rsync06:51
janobonovia ftp maybe06:51
RyoScore/opt/contrib/xorg/.. are rsync only06:51
janobonoor via http06:51
janobonolast two weeks I spent with base CD ank Kernel .configure etc06:52
janobononow everithing run correct06:52
janobonoxorg was installed from CD06:53
janobonoOk so I have to take my PC somewhere where is internet connection ;o)06:56
RomsterToshi, 4 of 19 tests failed, oil_test_check_impl(): illegal instruction in mmxCombineAddU, all the time for me on this K7 :/06:57
RyoSyes06:57
*** maxus has quit IRC06:59
Romsterjanobono, tricky but if you can install virtualbox/qemu or vmware on windows and install from the 2.4 cd then a ports -u and cd /usr/ports/xorg; pkgmk -r -do. and do that for core opt xorg and any other repos you use, would work then save all the files onto cd the ports tree and sources.07:02
*** jue has joined #crux07:02
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o jue07:02
juejanobono: http://crux.nu/gitweb/?p=ports/core.git;a=snapshot;h=2.407:03
RomsterToshi, what cpu/flags do you have too.07:03
juejanobono: that's a snapshot of the core ports-tree, use opt/xorg/contrib.. to fetch the others07:04
Romsteranyone else willing to add in 'make check' and recompile liboil i'm hiting a bug and it's anoying me and wanting to know what's affected, i'm thinking all non sse instruction set cous are affected.07:04
Romsterjue, ah nice idea, he still needs some way to get all the distfiles too in windows.07:05
Romsterhmm my batch writing code shouldn't be too rusty to knock something up...07:06
jueyep, right07:06
Romsteri have xp instaled in virtualbox here.07:06
Romsterso i can test.07:06
Romsterand write a wiki page on it.07:06
Romsterthen again might be lucky to get all the files from here http://jaeger.morpheus.net/proxy/crux/srcfiles/07:11
janobonothanks I will try to download them07:15
Romsterno garrentee they are all there07:16
janobonono there isnt KDE port07:17
janobonobut its better than nothing07:17
Romsteroh you need the kde tree too.07:17
janobonono07:17
Romsterand files07:18
janobonognome is fine07:18
Romsterk07:18
Romsteri used to use kde but i now use pekwm07:18
thrice`hm, haven't tried pek07:18
Romsterit's simple and fast.07:19
Romsteri'm still not happy with pypanel though07:19
thrice`yeah, I use it in openbox.  couldn't find anything better07:19
Romsterbmpanel but i dunno if i wanna try that.07:20
thrice`I'll let you do the testing :D07:20
Romsterheh07:28
Romsterhmm so far so good git tree gzip for windows, rusty bash scripting with google and now to find a wget for windows.07:29

Romsteri'm trying to treck it down... we are all on i386 i mean cpu07:37
janobonoWget 1.5.3.107:38
Romsterand cat /proc/cpuinfo | egrep '^flags.*' | cut -d ' ' -f 2-07:38
Romsterjanobono, ya found tools now i need to work on my rusty batch coding and parse the Pkgfiles for the source=() string07:39
teKI thought you need a wget.exe ..07:39
Romsteryes ya do teK07:40
janobonoi have it07:40
janobonoafter wget -V version is 1.5.3.107:40
Romsterthat's one part of the equation need to be able to extract got gzip and looking for tar or some command line utility that i can use in a batch script07:41
RyoSwhich pci/ethernetcard is worth its money?07:42
janobonopeaZip is usefull to extract gzip07:43

ToshiRomster: just woke up09:13
Romsteri sware this is a stack alignment issue09:14
ToshiDo I run that command cat /proc/cpuinfo.. to get the flags?09:14
Romsterbut why does liboil use -msse when i don't have sse in my cpu flags.09:14
Romsteryeah09:14
Toshifpu vme de pse tsc msr mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 tm pbe bts est tm209:14
Romsterk so seems to be for systems that lack sse, like mine.09:15
Romsterand i tryed -mno-sse in my CFLAGS09:16
Romsterand mmx died at compile with yet another error.09:16
Romsteri find bug reports for liboil but no fix.09:16

thrice`tilman: gcc 4.2.3 runs well here (and builds fine)11:01
RyoShere too11:03
tilmanah, thanks11:03
* predatorfreak just got around to building it and is giving it a workout by building xulrunner11:04
predatorfreakLet's see if I can kill it.11:04
RyoSpredatorfreak: tried that :P works fine11:04
* tilman just bottet a kernel that was built with 4.2.311:04
predatorfreakAww, ruin my fun.11:05
thrice`tilman: can I ask how much power you have running to your AM2 + 4 gigs memory?11:05
RyoS:P11:06
tilmanthrice`: you mean what kind of power supply i use, or how much watts my system is actually sucking?11:06
thrice`watts :)11:06
tilmani don't know11:07
predatorfreakthrice`: Not many folks monitor that on desktops :P11:07
thrice`well, I'm looking to build a new desktop, and struggle with selecting PSU's11:07
thrice`my athlon 2600 is not getting any faster :)11:08
tilmani'm running with a 400W psu fwiw11:08
predatorfreakGo by how much power your system draws and get one with Active whatchamacallit.11:08
predatorfreakI always forget what it is.11:09
predatorfreakBut my box runs off (basically) a 380 watt PSU11:09
tilmanRyoS: why did you reply to my mail in english?11:09
tilmanRyoS: please tell me you do remember that i'm german ._.11:09
thrice`predatorfreak: which cpu?11:09
thrice`haha11:09
predatorfreakthrice`: Athlon64 X2 4400.11:09
predatorfreakIf you're building new though.11:09
predatorfreakGet an Core 2 Duo.11:09
thrice`that's the chip I was looking at, actually :)11:09
RyoStilman: i didnt ment to reply you personally but to the ml :s11:09
tilmanRyoS: okay then :)11:10
RyoSi know you are german ;D11:10
tilmanno, get an AMD11:10
tilman:D11:10
predatorfreakthrice`: Get a cheap Core 2 Duo and overclock it.11:10
thrice`too much work11:10
predatorfreakMore bang for your buck.11:10
predatorfreakNot really.11:10
thrice`um...AMD 4400 is $6911:10
predatorfreakMost decent motherboards have basic overclocking in them.11:10
predatorfreakthrice`: You can get an Allendale for 75-90 bucks, depending on where you buy it.11:11
predatorfreakand it outperforms an Athlon 64.11:11
thrice`hm...perhaps I have some more looking around to do11:11
thrice`that's not 64-bit, is it?11:11
predatorfreakAll C2D's are.11:12
thrice`oh, I thought allendale was Pentium11:12
predatorfreakNot that x86_64 has seen decent uptake.11:12
predatorfreakAllendale is a scaled back Conroe.11:12
predatorfreakThe chopped a bit of L2 cache off and underclocked them.11:12
predatorfreakWith just about any P35 board that's not meant for OEM's you can overclock those things easily.11:13
predatorfreakand get a lot of power out of them11:13
predatorfreakBy comparison, overclocking a 4400 for more power is hard, they're pretty highly clocked already.11:13
Romstermost new cpus are either 90-120watt, no idea what 4gigs of ram at say 800MHz would draw11:13
tilmanthe 4400 is definitely below 90 watt11:14
predatorfreakRomster: 64W on Intel's next batch.11:14
predatorfreak(Rated)11:14
tilmanand it will be idle most of the time anyway, so -> less11:14
predatorfreakActual draw is generally a lot better.11:14
thrice`yep11:14
predatorfreakand I use a tweaked setup with cpufreq :311:15
predatorfreakWhen my CPU isn't needed for demanding stuff, it runs at 1GHz.11:15
tilmantweaked what?11:15
predatorfreaktilman: powernowd.11:15
tilmanuse the ondemand scheduler, and be done with it11:16
Romsteronly 64watt...11:16
predatorfreaktilman: Not as tweakable.11:16
Romsteryeah at full load, new cpus shutdown parts and can underclock when not needed.11:16
tilmanyes, it just works11:16
predatorfreakand is sluggish to notice when I need power.11:16
predatorfreaktilman: My tweaked powernowd setup is indistinguishable from running at 2.2GHz constantly.11:17
predatorfreakComparatively, I could notice the difference between starting an intensive job and it actually ramping up the CPU.11:17
predatorfreakUsing ondemand.11:18
predatorfreakPlus I don't really loose anything besides the need to build a userspace daemon.11:18
predatorfreak(RAM usage, given the size of powernowd, is probably comparable)11:18

turnschuhi am new to crux, so i have installed crux on my hard disk and all works great, my compiled kernel is in /boot and all fine, but when i am trying to boot crux i get the following error: “VFS: Unable to mount root fs” kernel panic and restart .| . maybe sth. is missing in my kernel, but it looks good mhhh but i wanna try crux ;)11:34
jaegerpredatorfreak: mind updating dbus-glib to 0.74? :)11:35
predatorfreakjaeger: Sure.11:35
jaegerpredatorfreak: thanks11:35
predatorfreakBut first, let me help turnschuh :D11:35
jaegerno hurry at all11:35
thrice`new ff needs dbus?11:35
turnschuh:D thx11:35
predatorfreakturnschuh: What drivers are you using for your HD?11:35
jaegerturnschuh: did you make sure to build your HD controller and filesytem support in instead of modules?11:35
predatorfreakturnschuh: Damn it! My job :P11:36
predatorfreakerr11:36
predatorfreakjaeger*11:36
predatorfreakNow I'm confused :(11:36
jaegerhehe11:36
predatorfreakturnschuh: Besides what jaeger said.11:36
jaegerI'll pipe down and let you help, working on gnome anyway11:36
thrice`hm, wonder if I can get away with not using dbus if I try FF3.0 binary11:36
predatorfreakMake sure you have SCSI support built in.11:36
turnschuhokay i will look thx11:36
predatorfreakand basic generic disc support built in.11:36
predatorfreakAs the new SATA/IDE drivers require that.11:37
turnschuhah okay thats maybe11:37
predatorfreak(They should really note that somewhere or force-enable it...)11:37
jaegerwell, not required if you don't use the new libata drivers11:37
*** bjohan__ has joined #crux11:37
predatorfreakjaeger: I mean, if you enable the libata drivers.11:37
predatorfreakSince pretty much everyone does.11:38
predatorfreakThey should force-enable it.11:38
jaegeryeah, that would save a lot of headaches11:38
* predatorfreak should make such a force-enable thingie and put it in his patchset.11:39
predatorfreakThen once LKML stops being scary submit it for inclusion.11:39
jaeger:)11:39
predatorfreakBut first, dbus-glib.11:39
thrice`lkml; Mar, 2008: 7646 messages11:43
thrice`yikes, scary is right11:43
predatorfreakEek.11:45
predatorfreaksip somehow changed the origin/master bit of opt to be the 2.2 branch!11:45
turnschuhthere is 'Include IDE/ATA-2 DISK support' but i can't find 'Genereic disk support'11:45
predatorfreakor someone...11:45
predatorfreakturnschuh: Enable SCSI, go into SCSI.11:46
turnschuhahok11:46
predatorfreakIt's SCSI target support + SCSI disk support11:46
predatorfreakand SCSI generic support/SCSI CDRom support11:46
turnschuhyeah its a module ._.11:46
turnschuhthanks dudes11:46
predatorfreakNo problem11:47
turnschuhthe whole afternoon i am sitting in front of “VFS: Unable to mount root fs” D:11:47

predatorfreakI had to do git push --force to get it to accept a perfectly valid commit...11:48
Romsterhmmz11:50
tilmanugh, don't do that11:50
tilmando NOT use --force11:50
predatorfreaktilman: I didn't fuck up opt.11:50
tilmanwhatever, do NOT use --force11:51
tilman--force is for admin types11:51
predatorfreak... great now I did fuck up opt...11:52
Romster--force could break something even more IMO. but who broke it and the fix..11:52
predatorfreakWell there's some magical something going fucking wrong on opt..11:53
tilmanfucking hell11:54
*** bjohan_ has quit IRC11:54

predatorfreakRandomly having opt go fuckball isn't quite right either.11:55
predatorfreakBut yes, I fucked up.11:56
Romsterit refused for a reason..11:56
Romsterbut who messed up before was it sip?11:56
predatorfreakIt also can't do git rebase origin/master anymore because it thinks HEAD is the 2.2 branch11:56
predatorfreak(That happened before I did --force <_<)11:57
Romstergitweb says 2.411:57

william_hi, i'm trying to install crux on an external usb hd and i'm running into an error upon boot up. in fstab i am specifying everything using UUID instead of /dev/sdb*. Here is the error i'm getting: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)20:58
william_any pointers would be greatly appreciated20:58
*** william_ has quit IRC21:49
*** william_ has joined #crux21:49
william_anyone around?21:50
Romsterwould be that you don't have the right driver compiled in.21:50
Romsterand that's a general linux/kernel not distro spefic thing.21:51
william_ok21:55
Romsteri haven't used usb hdd but i'd suspect you need libata scsi subsystem usb support built in21:58
william_i made sure usb support and a bunch of other things were built in... i'll  go through again21:59
william_thanks21:59
Romsteryou can start off with the kernel config off the cd if you prefer doing that.21:59
Romsterlsusb may of of some help too.21:59
Romsterof be*22:00
Romsterkernels are always fun to mess with.22:00
william_usually i don't have this much trouble22:00
Romsterbecause there all done for you..22:02
william_well, i've used crux before :P22:02
Romsterhow long ago is before.22:02
Romsteri've ben on crux since 2.122:03
Romsterbeen822:03
william_i think i've been on crux atleast since 2.122:03
william_:P22:03
Romsterthen you shouldn't have kernel issues22:04
Romsterunless you forgot how to configure them.22:04
william_just because i've been using crux for a long while doesn't mean i know everything about kernel configuration :P22:04
Romsterk22:04
Romsterand why a usb hdd unit? dual booting where ever you move it too?22:05
william_actually this is for a company machine and we aren't supposed to wipe the hd :)22:05
Romsterah22:06
william_use crux at work :)22:06
Romstergood move22:06
william_we got bought by a bigger company with tons of regulations :/22:06
Romsterbet they have vista or xp thee22:06
william_used to be able to install whatever we want22:06
william_yup, xp22:06
Romsterthats a pain22:06
william_yea, and we don't need windows for development so i like using linux there22:09
Romsterlikewise i gave up winxp for my desktop ages ago, but i was messing with linux servers longer before that22:10
Romsterxp wasn't too bad but vista scared me being so slow and crappy that i decided to make the move.22:11
william_ah22:12
william_i've never even used vista22:12
william_nobody seems to like it so no one i work with uses it22:13
Romstermy brother has it slow as, i find it hard to find stuff as i'm not used to the layout. i try to not touch that pc at all if i can avoid having to clean a virus..22:16
joacimVista is alright, but disk access is very slow, and its a pain to navigate the new control panel22:17
joacimcopying or moving a file causes explorer to freeze until it finishes22:18
joacimit is pretty tho.. if you can get your hands on business or ultimate =)22:20
Romsteryeah doesn't seem to be multiphreaded22:20
Romsteri just avoided and went to linux much easier.22:21
joacimwindows has far too many skinned applications22:22
Romsteri'd of prefered if all programs used a common skining engine.22:23
Romsterso ya could done one theme and have everything look the same.22:24
joacimwhy i try to use as many gtk+ apps as possible22:24
joacimon linux22:24
Romsterwell firefox 3 is looking more gtkish now.22:24
Romsterthan version 2 did22:25
joacimonly use windows for games because everything seems to be using a different skin engine22:25
Romsterwine <<22:25
Romsterbut sadly it doesn't run everything yet.22:25
joacimEVE Online ran quite well until CCP released their new revelation patch22:26
Romsteroh then there is game updates that break in wine too.22:26
joacimNow i got the urge to activate my EVE Online account again  :-/22:32
joacimmmorpg's are dangerous  :p22:33
william_sigh22:33
william_i've been playing diablo 2 recently :P22:34
william_this kernel issue is annoying. still haven't figured it out :/22:34
joacimI've been playing neverwinter nights on a diablo server =)22:36
william_what does that mean?22:36
william_is there a diablo mod for that game?22:36

william__i can see now that it isn't seeing the usb hd22:54
william__during boot22:54
william__yea, i'm not worried about it... it is an old cpu22:55
william__if it breaks that just means i can upgrade... right? :P22:55
william__this is weird though22:56
william__because there is usb stuff going on before the kernel panic22:56
Romsterhmm whats the panic?22:59
