predatorfreakRomster: Con Kolivas' invention :D01:03
*** namenlos has joined #crux01:03
pitillodidn't know about that abreviation01:03
RomsterContest lol..01:04
predatorfreakRomster: Me and another friend have this thing where whenever the kernel is being an ass.01:05
predatorfreakWe go "CON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"01:05
predatorfreakimmediately followed by "God-damn it Ingo."01:05
pitilloummm predatorfreak one question related to kernel, do you know why can I get (randomly) a softlockup error at kernel? I tried to fix that reviewing shared irq's and disabling which I don't use (it's a laptop running some services)01:07
pitillomay be you have a clue about this. I tried to fix upgrading/downgrading kernel too, but I got the same. Seems something related to the bg3 net module, but I can't fix that01:08
predatorfreaksoft lock as in stalls?01:09
pitilloummm what does "in stalls" means?01:09
tilman"as in"01:09
pitillono, the computer is responsive, but no way to get the net up again01:09
predatorfreakpitillo: System temporarily locks up, but resumes later.01:10
pitillopredatorfreak, it works, but  seems to be locked the net only01:10
predatorfreakI'd investigate your network card drivers XD01:11
predatorfreakWell, I don't own one of those01:12
predatorfreakSo I can't test out the drivers here.01:12
pitilloummm I am not sure if it's a good or bad network device, it cames with the laptop01:12
tilmanyou could try an external ethernet thingy01:12
Romsterand google and see if anyone has issues with that device.01:13
pitilloummmmmm I think it will be hard, no such external devices here01:13
pitilloRomster, I googled, to look for this kind of issue related to this network and looked for other kernel problems related to other devices01:13
pitilloI readed about kernel upgrade (wich didn't work here) and about reviewing shared irq (then I disabled the ones I don't use)01:14
*** aon has joined #crux01:15
pitillothese are the 2 solutions I found. I continue looking for some info to try to fix it01:15
Romsterdid you look at plug n play in the bios?01:16
Romsterresources controled by OS01:16
Romsterand PCI access mode in the kernel.01:16
pitilloRomster, ummm yes to the first, and the second I don't remember (I will take a look)01:17
pitillopci access is setup to any (I can't read too much info at kernel help about this)01:19
Romstermaybe apic and or acpi issue too.01:25
Romsternot really sure but thngs to try.01:25
pitilloI start the kernel with the noacpi option01:25

cptnso: Good (UGT) Morning, Everyone!01:46
pitilloryuo, kernel softlockups related to tigon3 network device (tweaking abit the kernel atm)01:46
pitillocptn, same for you :)01:46
ryuo version?01:46
pitilloryuo, tried now with 2.6.24-201:46
ryuoshouldnt you try
ryuounless its some wierd non-vanilla kernel01:47
tilmangood (real) morning cptn :p01:47
* tilman runs01:47
pitillotested in 2.6.23.{9-14} and 2.6.24.{2}01:47
pitilloryuo, not tested on it, I will take a look01:48
ryuolatest is
ryuo2.6.24.4 changelog mention some wireless updates01:48
pitilloummm I will read the changelogs (tigon3 isn't a wireless card). Thank you for that comment01:49

treachstory is in the log. :)02:42
Romsteryeah pick on me day so it seems no wait it's every day, all because i assumed kill did SIGKILL by default...02:49
Romsternow drop it already sick of hearing it.02:49

treachwanna bet? ;)02:56
ryuoi see this HP laptop but its rather vague about the specifications02:57
ryuoit doesn't even tell you what wireless chipset is in it...02:57
* ryuo grumbles.02:57

cruxbot[contrib.git]: di: Updated 4.11 -> 4.1204:18
*** muskot has joined #crux04:21
muskotneed some help with making myth tv find qtstring.h when building04:21
cptnis QTDIR exported?04:22
muskoti dont know i typed export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt04:22
muskotis it correct_04:22
cptnalthough, never heard of a qtstring.h before04:23
cptnQt's string header are called qstring.h04:24
muskotyeah i figure04:24
muskoti added the export line to my mythtv Pkgfile04:25
muskotcan that make inte err04:25
cptncan you log the complete build and upload that?04:25
muskotprt-get install mythtv | cat > myth.log04:26
muskotdoes that work_04:26
cptndon't think so04:26
cptnprt-get install mythtv > myth.log; cat myth.log should04:27
schniggieprt-get install mythtv | tee myth.log04:27
cptnyou can omit the cat of course to get a silent build04:27
cptnah right :-)04:27
cptnmuskot: prt-get also has a built-in logging feature BTW...04:27
schniggieah right :D04:28
muskotcptn, i didnt know04:28
cptnmuskot: are you using mythtv from contrib or from 'rho'?04:28
muskotsome thing wrong with the contrib version04:32
cptnno, don't think so04:32
cptnit's probably a bit older, but should build anyway04:32
cptnI just wanted to have a look at the Pkgfile, and realized I had two here04:33
*** errdil has quit IRC04:33
cptnwell, except that the version in contrib is kinda old04:37
cptnfrom september 2006...04:37
cptn@seen prologic04:38
clbcptn: prologic was last seen in #crux 5 weeks, 6 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes, and 30 seconds ago: <prologic> but tek is welcome to take over some or all of my ports04:38
treachhe quit04:38
treachand nobody adopted it apparently04:39
cptnor threw them out04:39
teKI could pick up mythtv04:39
teKif it's popular / used04:39
muskothow can i easy upload i file to a ftp server from the console04:42
tilmanlftp is a nice client04:43
muskotcptn, the compile output04:59
muskothope it helps05:01
treachdet gör det säkert, men han är nog upptagen05:02
muskothoppas han far lite tid till det >P05:03
Romstercptn, i plan to throw them out except ones that other ports depend on i'll contact them to see if they want to take it over.05:08
Romsterguess i'll do that tonight since it has been long enough05:09
treachI think there are a few people using myth though05:09
treachat least muskot here is trying to. :P05:09
Romsteri noticed.05:10
treachI'd never guess. :>05:10
mwansaRomster, err cant seem to be able to pull libdvdnav off shortcircuit ?05:12
Romsterit's not on shortcircuit anymore ports -u contrib05:12
treachprologic strikes again05:12
mwansaRomster, ah ya thought so. cheers05:12
*** maxus has quit IRC05:13
Romstermuskot, gftp in opt05:15
Romsteror mess with curl05:15
muskoti am thinking about tryning to use freevo instead of mythtv05:16
mwansaRomster, still is trying to pull of shrtcircuit. maybe have a look at the Pkgfile once you got a sec :P05:16
tilmanwasn't viper supposed to fix pinentry? ._o05:17
Romsteri've updatedit make sure your on contrib 2.4 branch05:18
Romsterrm -r /usr/ports/contrib/libdvdnav && ports -u contrib05:19
Romster;a=blob;f=libdvdnav/Pkgfile;h=c5b6a7a4ac05699a0a5c7d35c7424ef57eef98fc;hb=2.4 does not say shortcircuit in the soruce url hence why isaid it's been updated.05:20
mwansaRomster, fuck sorry forgot i was still on 2,305:20
Romsterfigures that's what i gathered and asked that earlier ^05:21
Romsterhmmz should we be updating contrib-2.3?'05:21
mwansayeah i guess im getting slower05:21
Romsterso how many are on 2.3 contrib still...05:21
mwansai dont think they would be much point updating 2.3 ports as most ppl probb have moved onto 2.405:22
Romsterexcept for those that don't realise a rejmerge doesn't touch /etc/ports/contrib.rsync as it's named contrib.rsync.inactive05:25

pitillochanging Preemption Model in kernel seems to give me a bit more stability (around 3h without seeing the softlock) Let's see how many time it can be up without problems. Thank you all for your comments.05:38

tilmanpredatorfreak: vala 0.2.0 is out. and the # description in your port sucks11:44
predatorfreaktilman: Well, I don't even use vala, so, as far as I'm concerned, it is just some fancy GNOME programming thingie :D11:45
tilmanblabla, please fix it11:46
tilmanjust steal their description thing11:46
predatorfreakI should probably just nuke it, I have no use for Vala, personally, nor do I even have it installed.11:47

racerdox: lo11:55
doxi just installed crux. when lilo is loading crux i get the following error: "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount roots fs on unknown-block(3,0)11:55
j^2dox: id you edit fstab?11:55
doxi have 4 partitions on /dev/hda: hda1 = /, hda2 = boot, hda3 = swap & hda4 = home11:55
treachmore mundane than that probably.11:56
tilmanyour kernel doesn't have supported for your root filesystem, or for your sata or ide hardware11:56
treach"support" :p11:56
tilmanle sigh11:56
doxhda1(/) is reiser the rest are ext311:56
doxand it's not sada hd, then it would be /dev/sda, right?11:56
thrice`reiser will needs to be compiled in statically, then11:57
treachyeah, but do you have support for that compiled into your kernel?11:57
*** maxus has joined #crux11:57
treachie, "*" not "m"11:57
doxfor reiser and ext3 ? i think they were already checked when i ran through the kernel menuconfig11:57
doxin my lilo.conf i have: boot=/dev/hda2 and root=/dev/hda111:58
*** predatorfreak has quit IRC11:58
j^2did you make your boot bootable via fdisk?11:58
tilmanboot=/dev/hda2? does that make sense? :p11:59
treachbefore worrying about that, make sure you've got the proper support for things.11:59
treachdon't "think".11:59 do i make the partition bootable using fdisk ?11:59
treachtilman: where's captain picard when you need him...?11:59
tilmanthe bootable flag is only read by DOS, isn't it?12:00
j^2dox: it's "a"12:00
j^2tilman: really? i've always had to do it12:00
tilmanNOW it's time for captain picard12:01
*** predatorfreak has joined #crux12:01
j^2tilman: op me ;)12:01
tilmandox: so, first thing to do is verify that your kernel supports reiser12:01
Romstersorry other way around boot=/dev/hda and boot=/dev/hda112:01

tilmandox: boot the system that you used to build the kernel12:13
Romsterand you lot jsut make me worse12:13

racerso... anyone have a quick howto on getting rsync set up so I can emulate ports -u on a closed network?22:59
racerI know I just need to do a ports -u, then set up the /usr/ports directory in rsyncd, then modify the configuration files in /etc/ports/ on the clients, but I keep getting a connection refused when I try to connect to rsync23:00
