tilmanwhat's the point of using yasm?02:02
*** namenlos has joined #crux02:03
Romsteri don't really know if it's not doing much diference.02:05
Romsterseems to be like a 0.2% improvment from predatorfreaks stuff02:06
Romsterprofilling is another thing though, seen it never did try messing with that.02:07
cruxbot[core.git]: wget: updated to
tilmanmavrick61: okay, thanks for the heads-up02:15
Romstertilman, i've found them mknod 3 lines aren't needed with current udev rules but without the /dev/null there is 2 modules that fail to load that usally get sent to null so i left that one and removed the other two and things are still fine.02:19
Romsterand not sure why /dev/zero has write access. that's not needed is it?02:20
tilmanah, i've got an udev bump in the pipe as well02:20
Romsterah cool02:20
Romsterhaven't sorted out the video group i've made a mknod for /dev/nvidiactl since that dosn't seem to get recreated on udevtrigger02:22
Romsterit's a xorg.conf thing for video permissions i assume.02:22
tilmanhaha, arch uses libarchive, too?02:23
Romsterlzma... heh02:28
Romstergrr why is nearly every net stream glitchy. i arn't at my net speed limits.02:30
Romsterand it's more than one server.02:30

*** j^2 has quit IRC07:18

*** pebo_ has joined #crux11:08
*** Rotwan1 is now known as Rotwang11:10
pebo_what network profile software crux-users are using? archlinux has netcfg2 which was very useful for me.11:10
thrice`vim and /etc/rc.d/net :)11:11
Romster$EDITOR /etc/rc.d/net11:11
Romstersaves the big editor debate >>11:12
Rotwangsed -i 'blahblah' /etc/rc.d/net11:12
pebo_I understand but I still assume, there are times, where people would like to do a simple `netprofile school' in order to do multiple changes at the same time.11:13 order to `automate' things..11:14
thrice`I would make an /etc/rc.d/, do /etc/rc.d/net.home stop && /etc/rc.d/ start11:15
treachor expand the /etc/rc.d/net script11:15
pebo_ok, thanks. sounds simple.11:16
tilmani recommend dto do it like thrice` suggested11:18
tilmanis anyone using iwl3945 (as opposed to ipw3945) on crux/11:22
tilmanon my laptop, the driver complains that it cannot load the firmware11:22
*** jnengland77 has joined #crux11:23
jaegerpredatorfreak: for what it's worth, scsi target, generic, and cdrom support are not required for libata hard disk support11:23
predatorfreakjaeger: They're useful non the less.11:23
predatorfreakI don't want him coming back bitching OMG I HAVE NO CDROM DRIVE!!!11:23
predatorfreakand SCSI target support is.11:24
predatorfreakAs it's the basic everything-else option.11:24
jaegerthey're useful, yes, but not strictly required, just wanted to point out the difference11:24
predatorfreakjaeger: I know.11:24
jaegerI don't use target or generic on any of my machines except for one with a card reader11:24
predatorfreakBut I don't have five minutes to explain "you'll also want these if you want a usable system" :)11:24
*** pebo_ has left #crux11:25
predatorfreakmm, err yeah target is for generic support.11:25
predatorfreakgod-dang kernel options.11:25
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o tilman11:26
predatorfreakjaeger: I'm just lazy and didn't feel like typing out a couple paragraph e-mail after just waking up :P11:27
treachI don't know about others, but I've had quite a bit better luck with using /dev/sg for my cdrecorder.11:27
predatorfreaktreach: /dev/sr0 works fine for me, but it probably depends on the drive.11:28
treachprobably. Just trying to tell that it's a handy thing to have.11:28
thrice`hm, fedora claims to ship ff beta511:29
* thrice` digs for source11:29
predatorfreakthrice`: Lies!!11:29
predatorfreakIt's a snapshot.11:29
predatorfreakGuarantee it.11:30
tilmanRomster: what was your problem with udev again?11:32
predatorfreakI wanna say cdrom group or somestuff like that.11:33
predatorfreakI'm using his port atm, so I don't remember :P11:34
tilmaniirc it was something about mknod calls11:35
Romsternothing major, but mknod urandom, zero are redundent rules create them. null is needed if ya wanna keep the 2 modules that show up if null is missing untill it's created but that's nonfatal.11:35
tilmanand something about nvidia (*vomit*)11:35
jaegerpredatorfreak: didn't really mean that to be a slap on the wrist, just figured it might help for future reference11:35
Romstercdrom group, zero has write permissions, is that required?11:35
cruxbot[xorg.git]: xorg-xf86-video-amd: updated to
predatorfreakjaeger: I knew it already, I'm just lazy :D11:35
predatorfreakRomster: oh and you need those nods or you can't boot.11:36
predatorfreaknull, console and zero are needed until you fire up udev.11:36
predatorfreakOtherwise sh will fail outright.11:36
predatorfreakurandom probably is too.11:36
Romsterand yeah nvidia0 has global write and nvidiactl dosn't get recreated but thas a nvidia thing i'm guessing that can be fixed in permissions in xorg.conf and i've made a node for nvidiactl11:37
tilmani'll just assume it's okay that /dev/zero is writable11:37
Romsteri've pulled them out udev worked.11:37
Romsterso explain that one predatorfreak <<11:37
predatorfreakRomster: umount /dev11:37
predatorfreakls /dev11:37
* thrice` looks up the "if it isn't broke" clause11:37
predatorfreakObviously, not while you're in X or someshit :D11:38
*** pitillo has quit IRC11:38
Romsteroh so keeping redundent crap is more important.11:38
predatorfreakIf you don't have /dev/null, /dev/zero and /dev/console, sh won't start.11:38
predatorfreakI may be wrong on urandom.11:39
Romsterudev creates them from the udev rules.11:39
predatorfreakRomster: Read the init scripts.11:39
Romsteron the udevtrigger part.11:39
tilmani don't see urandom in udev/.footprint anyway?11:39
predatorfreakThey're written in good ol' shell script.11:39
predatorfreakWe start a shell BEFORE udev.11:39
Romstereh i have removed the zero and urandom and i've not expeareanced any issues.11:40
Romstereh i'll look at it more later right now i'm off to bed11:40
predatorfreakThat's 'cuz filesystem makes them <_<11:40
tilmanfilesystem only has /dev/console11:40
predatorfreakerr yeah.11:40
tilmani'd find it a bit strange if bash required /dev/{u,}random anyway ;)11:41
Romsterwell my box is proff it works but maybe i did something wrong and something else is covering my arse.11:41
predatorfreakSpeaking of that.11:41
predatorfreakmknod -m 600 $PKG/dev/console c 5 111:41
predatorfreakYou don't need to call chmod after making the console bit if you do that :D11:41
Romster /dev is not static.11:42
predatorfreakRomster: For filesystem.11:42
predatorfreakand do me a favour, delete all your device nods from /dev/ after umounting it and try to boot :D11:42
predatorfreakYou won't get to udev11:43
Romsterhmm we'll see i'll try that after i wake up.11:43
predatorfreakRecord yourself screaming "GOD DAMN IT PREDATORFREAK"11:45
predatorfreak(or Brett, whichever works)11:45

*** atealtha has joined #crux11:52
thrice`predatorfreak: sure enough - "firefox-3.0-0.47.cvs20080324.fc9.src.rpm"11:53
atealthacrux install gives me a kernel panic, something about USB, I think it might be my wacom. has this happened before11:54
RedShiftcrux doesn't give you kernel panics11:55
RedShiftyour kernel gives you kernel panics11:55
Rotwangkernel gives them ;]11:55
atealthawell the one loading during the install11:56
atealthanot one I compiled myself11:56
treachwell, that wacom is hardly needed for installation.11:57
treachunplug it, and fix things up, then plug it back in.11:57
treachif it works with other linux dists, it should work with crux.11:57
