namenlosis the plain swfdec package able to run as a plugin for firefox?04:22
RomsterFlash isn?t really a showstopper, but it would be nice to be able to see all the funny video clips people are refering to. None of the free flash plugins seems to work (swfdec, libfalsh-mozplugin), but youtube-dl and mplayer do the job.04:26
Romsterfound that doing a search04:26
Romsterswfdec would be sued to decode not run in firefox without a wrapper i'd imagine.04:27
Romsteri could be wrong though04:27
Romstergnash might worth a look at too.04:27
namenloswhy can't they unify their work/experience?04:30
namenlosthere are: swfdec-mozilla, gnash, mplayerplug-in...04:32
namenloshm, mplayerplug-in doesn't seem to play flash files04:35

sepenteK, np, many thanks for your notes06:37
teKno problem but you should do one commit per port06:37
sepenalso I think I should do a full review of syslinux and all contained files on it06:37
sepenyeah 1 per commit06:37
teKnot port1: ... || port2:  ...06:38

Romsterwhere is predatorfreak when ya need him...08:52
Romsterhe made a booboo in firefox port.08:53
Romsteractually he should be on soonish it's nearly 8am there.08:53
RyoSjaeger: aaaah sorry didnt ment to querry ._.08:54
jaegerno worries08:55
jaegerhaven't pushed it yet but I may today, it'08:55
jaegerit's built fine on 3 of my machines so far08:55
RyoShehe alright08:56
RyoSwould be great :)08:56
Romstercan anyone build pinentry with current gtk, i thnk there is a problem allso libpth wouldn't install untill i added -j1 to make install09:02
thrice`there's a bug in flyspray about pinentry09:02
tilmani just hit that, too09:04
RyoSdoesnt build here09:04
tilmani just assigned the bug to viper09:05
tilmanthat should increase the chance that he sees it09:06
thrice`I think he pointed to a patch, too09:06
Romsterbut will tell predatorfreak when he comes on.09:07
thrice`I didn't try updating FF yet09:07
thrice`then again, I use mozilla's binary o.O09:08
Romsterhe named the firefox-2.0-add-ldflags.patch in the build as patch -p0 -i $SRC/ldflags.patch09:09
Romsteri'm on firefox3 on this box but the other desktop pc has firefox209:09
Romsterthrice`, slack to not compile it yourself <<09:10
thrice`no, just don't see the benefit09:11
thrice`and, my poor athlon 2600 doesn't like doing it :-)09:12
treachit's just lazy. "Move those electrons!"09:14
Romsterpfft i compile on this old 1.4GHz box09:16
Romsteryou have no excuse <<09:17
treachwho needs an excuse?09:17
jesse_Some users want it all customized while some just want it to work without an extra hassle.09:19
thrice`agreed.  the binary port is about 5 lines long, and takes about 10 seconds to complete :)09:20
jesse_That is probably the single most influential reason in my case as well.09:22
Romsterguess some all want binary ports of everything then.09:22
treachYes. Without doubt.09:22
treachThose who run arch, for example.09:23
jesse_If that is the case, why would I even be running crux?09:23
treachor other random $BINARY_DISTRIBUTION09:23
jesse_Some software is not worth spending the time compiling, especially when you have aging hardware.09:24
treachand some isn't, even if you don't. :>09:25
jesse_Which should not imply you should ONLY run a binary distribution.09:25
Romsteronly thing i'd agree to there is openoffice09:26
Romsteras that is insane.09:26
thrice`I disagree.  in my case, firefox takes about 45 minutes to complete.  That doesn't make sense to me, either09:27
treachffs, even ff isn't sane either if you have, let's say a P2@ 233MHz09:27
treachwhich is technically supported by crux09:27
*** racer has joined #crux09:28
Romsteractually i got a 266MHz P2 here butit arn't pluged in. and i've donea tool chain compile on it too.09:28
Romsterbig deal09:28
jesse_That is a very narrow and polarized POV to think you are polluting your crux installation with zomg, binaries! :p09:28
Romsterthen why don't we all use binarys for everything..09:28
treachstupid question, which you already know the answer to.09:29
thrice`Romster: have you actually *looked* at the differences between mozilla's FF build, and the one you do from source?09:29
Romsteri don't bother with the offical build.09:29
thrice`I woudln't immediately declare it as "inferior"09:30
Romsterwhy would i need too.09:30
* thrice` doesn't see the discussion going anywhere, and gives up09:30
treachwhy would you bother with building it yourself?09:30
Romsteri do't mind compiling the source one so why would i compare and i never did say it was inferiour, again with puting the words in my mouth09:30
joacimwhy do you care if he bothers or not?09:30
treachwhat's the point in doing something other than the standard?09:30
jesse_crux has the benefit that the user is in charge, instead of a very comprehensive design objective.09:31
Romsterseems builinding source files when we can all get binarys for some stuff.09:31
treachyeah, but *why* are we building it from source?09:32
thrice`I don't see how the point is now *complete* binary distros, versus 1 package09:32
treachAre we ricers?09:32
Romsterand maybe they made a back door in the binary version too who knows.09:32
jesse_It is not as simple as that. Most system apps are light and most computers will gladly churn a binary from source.09:32
treachis it -fomg-optimize that is the point?09:32
Romsteri don't know..09:32
jesse_For others, it is not worth the wait.09:32
jesse_openoffice as you said, firefox is sitting on the border.09:32
Romsterstart shit off goto bed done when you wake up09:32
treachmost people turn off their computer when they aren't sitting at it.09:33
thrice`I turn my PC off at night :)09:33
jesse_Not everyone has that type of luxury. what if you need it much faster than overnight?09:33
treachsurprise, surprise.09:33
Romstermine is on 24/709:33
jesse_thrice`: that too09:33
treachso? You aren't everyone, and everyone isn't like you09:33
Romsterjesse_, then stick to the blody old verison until you have time..09:33
thrice`I turn mine off while sleeping and at work.  that's 18 hours of electricity :)09:33
Romsterever heard of standby/powersaving.09:34
jesse_Those still consume power09:34
treachand how well does things compile while the computer is in powesave mode?09:34
Romsterless of09:34
Romsterafter it's done you moron09:34
RyoSget a hold of yourselves gentlemen09:35
thrice`alright, now I quit09:35
Romsterbah you lot are all pointless *goes todo something better*09:35
RyoSwhats the problem now again?09:35
treachI wonder who's the moron.09:35

tilmanpredatorfreak: in any case, you should ask simone to do pf->privileges++ on flyspray, it says you're a lowly reporter13:22

tilmanyou should be 'developer'13:23
predatorfreakWoo, I'm a developer!13:23
* predatorfreak queue's DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS13:23
tilmanpredatorfreak: so opt/firefox does the new ziomg-optimized build, right?13:24
predatorfreaktilman: Basically, yeah.13:24
predatorfreakI wouldn't call it zomg optimised, just improved.13:24
tilmanwill try it tomorrow13:24
predatorfreakzomg optimised will come with 3.0 and my xulrunner change.13:24
tilmanthrice` reported some build issues, but i don't know the details13:24
predatorfreakWell the exact same changes were tested by I don't know how many folks on the ML13:25
predatorfreakand I fixed the core problems that got reported there...13:25
tilmanyes, thrice`'s problem might be entirely unrelated13:25
tilmanjust figured i'd hilight him so he has a chance to talk to you if need be13:26
predatorfreakthrice`: Start bitching before I get bored with firefox and move onto fucking up other things :D13:27
thrice`sorry, back.  it was not me who had build problems, since I use binary (though that's another long story :-) )  I just noticed the bug on flyspray13:34
tilmanoops, i misunderstood then13:35
thrice`I mentioned that I just use moz's binary, and romster got upset and recommended switching to a binary-only distro13:35
thrice`long story :013:36
thrice`the only FF build issue I have is that it's slow, and my processor sucks (though I think the two are related ;)13:37
thrice`dunno what romster's issue was o.O13:39
predatorfreakthrice`: Go switch to a binary distro you lazy bum!13:39
thrice`treach too13:39
atealthaI just discovered that prt-get uses the ports you specify and not some central repo, kudos on that13:39
tilmanatealtha: i'll forward the kudos to cptn when he's here the next time ;)13:40
predatorfreakTreach builds firefox 3.13:40
predatorfreakLast I checked.13:40
tilmanenough with that already13:40
tilmanromster just lost it13:40
tilmanand started insulting people because they used binary packages13:41
thrice`no, wasn't trying to start anything.  just clearing up that I have no issues with firefox, as suggested13:41
tilmanyeah, i got it :)13:41
predatorfreakI'm only playing anyway.13:41
thrice`actually, out of curiosity, isn't mozilla's binary compiled more agressively than our standard flags?13:44
predatorfreakNot really.13:44
predatorfreakThey basically just build it -Os.13:44
predatorfreakdo about:buildconfig13:44
predatorfreakMy firefox 3 fancy stuff reports my xulrunner build options and flags, as it should, but Mozilla don't build like that.13:45
predatorfreakSo you should basically get the fancy mozilla upstream Firefox build shit.13:46

treachhurray, ooo2.4 is here. :p14:21
sepenatealtha, yes, try to ask better14:22
treachapparently you've got some local problem.14:22
atealthahmm lynx wouldn't even go directly to it14:26
treachdoes *ANY* networking er... work?14:27
treachfrom that host?14:27
tilmanmaybe just blame the crappy sourceforge mirror?14:27
atealthaI downloaded it manually with lynx and navigating the site14:27
atealthaI was able to use the exact same url with wget on a different machine14:27
tilmanyou can force your system to use a specific sf mirror by editing /etc/hosts14:27
treachatealtha: that doesn't gurantee *anything*14:28
atealthait was
sepenatealtha, i.e; $ grep dl /etc/hosts14:28
sepen193.1.193.66 dl.sourceforge.net14:28
treach1. Networking on the system you fail to get it from might be broken.14:28
treach2. sourceforge is a round-robin thing, so even if the url is the same you might hit a broken mirror14:28
atealthaI'll probably add a line to the hosts file14:29
treach...(and one frequently does so)14:29
treachSometimes I wonder what percentage of sf mirrors actually works..14:30
treachCan't be significant.14:30
sepenI should use heanet14:30
sepenalso I've my own script for check which is the best mirror for me14:33

cruxbot[contrib.git]: ndiswrapper: 1.51 -> 1.5216:08
predatorfreakRomster: Yeah, I need to stop changing patch names in my personal repo16:13
Romsterwel you could but you gotta change both <<16:16
predatorfreakRomster: I'm just a fruit who likes renaming patches.16:20
sepentilman, which is the minimal tree ports for using startx only? xorg-libx11?16:20
predatorfreakIsn't basically the xorg port just that?16:21
predatorfreakI guess if you wanted total smallness just use xorg-server...16:21
Romsterpredatorfreak, yeah while you rename the patch $SRC/... bit but not the part in the source=() array..16:21
sepenpredatorfreak, I need a minimal (space) installation for a embeeded system16:21
tilmansepen: xorg-xinit and xorg-libx1116:22
tilmanxorg-libx11 is client stuff only -- xorg-xinit pulls in the server :)16:22
predatorfreaktilman: With no server how the shit will xorg-init be useful?16:22

predatorfreaktilman: Screw you! We don't all type so fast :(16:22
sepenvga-server i.e?16:23
tilmanpredatorfreak: it's okay ;)16:23
predatorfreakRomster: I renamed both in my personal port.16:23
predatorfreakI forgot about the patch -p1 -i BLAH shit16:23
tilmansepen: the server is the thing which talks to your graphics card16:23
sepenyep, so I need it16:23
tilmanyou'll need xorg-xf86-video-vga, or xorg-xf86-video-vesa or something that was actually written for the chip you're using16:24
Romsterpredatorfreak, hmm k, i find it easy to cp my/port/.. /opt/port/16:24
sepenok many thanks tilman16:24
Romsterand overwrite the existing Pkgfile that way you don't mess that up.16:24
predatorfreakRomster: That would be "wrong".16:24
predatorfreakBecause I'd have changed the patch name16:24
predatorfreakfor no apparent reason.16:25
sepenIm going to eat something and return inmediately for trying it16:25
Romsterproviding you copy everything over and git mv the other patch files then copy the new version over if required.16:25
Romsterother than consistancy <<16:25
predatorfreakThe patch didn't change an inch.16:25
predatorfreakI just had it as ldflags from previous hacking on firefox before the same patch entered into opt.16:26
RedShiftThy shalt not steal... because the government hates competition16:27
Romsterthen why not git mv it.. oh well..16:27
Romsteri fail to understand some actions.16:27
predatorfreakRomster: firefox-2.0-ldflags.patch is a more proper name.16:28
predatorfreakldflags.patch is kind-of vague.16:28
predatorfreakFine for a personal repo, not so for opt.16:28
Romsterbut it is in the /firefox/ directory gasp..16:28
predatorfreakRomster: The unspoken policy is most patches should at least be $pkgname-BLAH.patch/diff16:29
RedShifttreach: damn :(16:29
predatorfreakPreferably $pkgname-$version-BLAH.patch if it's tied to a specific version.16:29
Romsterpredatorfreak, hmm k i didn't see it listed in the requirments but i'll take your word for it.16:30
Romsteryeah i do that for a spefic version.16:30
predatorfreakRomster: Look at all the ports in opt/core.16:30
predatorfreakGenerally, they use that naming format.16:30
predatorfreakRomster: That's what I meant by unspoken policy ;)16:32

sepenare really required libdrm and mesa3d for running xorg-video-vesa?17:15
predatorfreaksepen: I would say it's more likely that the xorg server requires them17:18
predatorfreakand not the video driver.17:18
tilmangreater good for the common case17:18
tilmansue me :P17:18
*** errdil has joined #crux17:18
tilmansepen: opengl will run SLOWLY on -vesa, as there's no hardware support17:19
tilmanthe drm dep is bogus in that case17:19
Romstersometiems wonder if i even need mesa3d when i got nvidia binary.17:20
Romsterbut i leave it there anyways.17:20
tilmanUse Free Drivers Or Die17:21
Romsteri would if they provided 3d acceleration.17:22
sepenhandbook says ....avoiding cluttering the filesystem with files you'll never us....  Im thinking in the case I never will use opengl17:22
Romsterxorg-video-nvidia is only good for 2d17:22
predatorfreak-nvidia +nv17:23
predatorfreakand it's 2D acceleration is gimped too.17:23
Romsteroh yeah nv/nvidia17:23
predatorfreakIt's slower than the binary drivers.17:23
Romsteryeah it's only got some 2D17:23
predatorfreakThe saving grace is that it has XV support <_<17:23
tilmansepen: yesyes, it's a compromise i made17:23
predatorfreakBut honestly, I'd just install the nvidia driver.17:24
Romsterjust wish it would improve.17:24
predatorfreakUnless it was some horribly old chipset that they dropped.17:24
predatorfreakIn which case, yeah, to avoid the annoyance of the legacy driver, I'd use the nv driver.17:24
sepentilman, so in this case, are there a lot of 'common case' deps for building a minimal x oriented desktop and minimal?17:24
Romsteri'm on the nvidia binary driver works fine so tilman as soon as xorg-video-nv supports 3D i'll change to it.17:25
predatorfreaksepen: 99% of people running CRUX would want OpenGL.17:25
tilmanxorg-video-nv will probably never support 3d or anything sane17:25
predatorfreakRomster: nv probably won't ever support it.17:25
sepenpredatorfreak, Im not disaccording with this17:25
tilmannvidia cripples it for a reason ;)17:25
Romstercrap :/17:25
tilmannouveau is what you want to put your money on17:25
predatorfreakAFAIK, Nouveau are the only ones working on it.17:25
predatorfreakBut they're still a LONG ways off from anything usable on all hardware.17:25
predatorfreak6*00 series works pretty well, but everything else is in varying states of usefulness.17:26
Romsterhmm haven't seen Nouveau before googled it.17:26
predatorfreak"Currently, there is 2D-support, and a very limited 3D support for extremely lucky developers. Yes, this statement has not changed for a long time, and yes, it is still valid."17:27
Romsteri'd go and get a ATI card right nwo if it had full 3D support on opensource drivers <<17:27
sepentilman, so after install xorg-libx11 which is the next port if I don't want to install all 'common case' ports but I want to run startx?17:27
tilmanxorg-xinit contains startx17:27
Romstersepen, try it if it complains of a missing lib install it.17:27
* tilman heads off to bed17:27
predatorfreakRomster: I wouldn't, I use my card for games.17:27
sepen$ prt-get deptree xorg-xinit | grep libdrm17:27
sepen[i]       libdrm17:27
Romsterg'night tilman17:27
tilmansepen: yes, because xorg-xinit depends on xorg-server17:28
tilmanxorg-server depends on drm atm17:28
Romsterpredatorfreak, i do sometimes game too.17:28
tilmanbecause xorg-server really wants to build DRI support17:28
predatorfreakSo I need a decent card and the best ones at the current prices of hardware are NVIDIA.17:28
predatorfreakAll around.17:28
sepenwell thank at all and night17:28
tilmanalso note that soon the drm will contain mode setting code17:28
predatorfreak9600GT and 8800GT are fucking awesome cards.17:28
tilmanso drm will soon not only be used for direct rendering and fast exa acceleration stuffs17:28
Romsterpredatorfreak, that's why this card i have now is a nvidia.17:28
tilmanand really... virtually noone uses -vesa or -vga17:29
tilmani bet it's < 10 crux users :P17:29
Romsterso drm will take over.17:29
sepentilman, thanks for your patience today17:29
Romsteri dunno if it's jsut me but libdrm gives me chills of the DRM encryption everytime i see it..17:30
Romsterinfact anything that says 'drm' does.17:30
predatorfreakRomster: I should change my nick to "drmfreak"17:31
predatorfreakThen I can be like "What? Direct Rendering Manager."17:31
