cptngood morning03:51
predatorfreakcptn: Morning.03:53
cptnRomster: congrats on the qt4 update, however... are you aware that it's also in opt?03:55
predatorfreakcptn: Sip is kinda lacking on time, I think.03:55
cptnyeah, that's for sure03:56
predatorfreakcptn: and Romster has been maintaining qt4 for a lot longer... I don't even know WHY it's in opt.03:56
predatorfreakNothing in opt requires qt4.03:56
Romsterand out of date and never informed and i had my version in contrib before sip threw one in opt.03:56
Romsteroh and the one in opt is a copy of qt3 and i've altered a few things for qt4 to use cflags and stuff again that's altered slightly.03:56
Romsterbut if you want it out i'll put it in my private repo.03:57
cptnthose are all good arguments03:57
predatorfreakTBH, I think qt4 should be dropped from opt.03:57
Romsterjust the same as all the sdl_* ports got droped no warning and i depend on them.03:57
predatorfreakAs nothing uses it.03:57
cptnI was more hoping that there could be a solution to avoid the duplication03:57
cptnsince the contrib rules are pretty clear03:58
predatorfreakThe only ports using it are in contrib.03:58
cptnand if sip a) doesn't have time, and b) nothing in opt needs it maybe it could be dropped from opt03:58
Romsteri'd like a solution either the opt port gets updated and fixed with the changes i've found or opt qt4 be droped.03:58
predatorfreakSomeone should really contact sip over this stuff.03:58
cptnbut I saw no request in FS, so I asked03:58
Romsterah didn't i make a ticket for qt4 in opt.03:59
predatorfreakahh I lied03:59
predatorfreaklyx/Pkgfile:# Depends on: tetex, qt4, imagemagick03:59
cptnheh, I guess I'm to blame for that one :-)03:59
predatorfreakHowever, one application could easily be moved to contrib.03:59
predatorfreakNot to mention tetex needs to be replaced with texlive03:59
cptnif there's a voluteer to package texlive...03:59
Romsterhmm i'd gladly give qt4 away it's a huge arse long compile as predatorfreak knows when i said i started and ended.03:59
predatorfreakRomster: Like four hours? :D04:00
Romsteryeah something like that.04:00
Romsterthat contrib/qt4 sits with qt3 i'm gonna also try qt4 with qt3 compatability without qt3 port installed and see how that behaves with programs that use qt3.04:01
predatorfreakRomster: Breaks KDE.04:01
predatorfreakKDE needs "real qt3"04:01
Romsterhmm damn04:01
Romsternot kde4...04:01
predatorfreakKDE4 isn't adopted on CRUX yet.04:01
Romsterkde3 has it's own copy in there of kde3 anysays.04:01
predatorfreakHence the need to still provide qt3.04:01
Romsterso i can't stop qt4 from being along side qt3 yet.04:02
predatorfreakhmm what by the looks of it.04:03
predatorfreak4.3.X fixed the problems remaining with KDE3.04:03
Romsteri have a semi working kde4 not running but i've built nearly all the packages.04:03
predatorfreakAs Gentoo use it as their default.04:03
predatorfreakand they're still on KDE3.04:04
predatorfreakSo, presumably, that problem is solved now.04:04
*** jue has joined #crux04:04
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o jue04:04
cptnhey jue04:04
Romsterhi jue04:04
cptnRomster: I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass here04:04
Romsteri know.04:05
Romsteryour just helping.04:05
Romsteri'm here to help also.04:05
cptnI'm just observing at the moment :-)04:05
jueoh, just read that a discussion about is going on04:05
Romstersip steped over me not asked me just did that.04:05
jueI've created a FS ticket04:05
cptnjue: maybe one of you guys could pull in the update for opt?04:05
Romsterto what resolution?04:06
jueIMHO qt4 should be an opt port04:06
Romsterwell the opt port should be updated.04:06
predatorfreakjue: For what?04:06
predatorfreakEverything else even outright DISABLES qt4 support in opt.04:06
juebecause it's a basic lib like gtk04:06
cptnmmm, also a KDE4 repo might not want to depend on contrib04:07
Romsterand stop it being a add on to qt3 now. but i'm gonna test a straight qt4 without qt3 installed and see if  anything breaks, as qt4 has qt3 compatibility. as i said not too long ago.04:07
predatorfreakjue: Unless qt4 is emulating qt3, we have qt3 in opt for the things requiring only qt.04:07
predatorfreakWhich are few-and-far between...04:07
juesorry, but I don't see the problem, what's wrong with opt/qt4?04:07
predatorfreakIf there's no depends, there's no reason to keep a library in the repo.04:07
predatorfreakjue: It's in there for one port and the current maintainer seems strapped for time.04:08
Romster messy and incomplete but i've made some progress.04:08
predatorfreakRomster: You need to enable qt3 compat BTW.04:08
Romsterqt4 has a qt3 compatability mode.04:08
predatorfreak-qt3support switch or someshit.04:08
cptnjue, predatorfreak: the point is that if one maintainer thinks it's worth to have it and opt, then it's his call04:08
cptnso if there's no one to maintain it right now, contrib might be fine04:09
Romsteryeah if i'm not installing it with qt3 on the system and moved directorys.04:09
cptnif someone can update it, there's no real reason to mive it04:09
predatorfreakcptn: Well, I have nothing against sip maintaining it.04:09
predatorfreakBut, he does seem to be a bit preoccupied of late.04:09
Romstersip didn't even update it when a minor revision came out.04:09
predatorfreakThis isn't the first port of his that's gotten a tad out of date.04:09
Romsterviper and sip both need to go other there ports.04:09
predatorfreakOne of us should take the time to contact sip over this though.04:10
cptnmaybe there could be a system that one opt maintainer creates an updated port and send it to crux-devel for review04:10
cptnand if another maintainers signs it off, the update can be performed04:11
predatorfreakcptn: and what about people like Romster who aren't opt maintainers?04:11
predatorfreakPersonally, I do not have the time nor need to fiddle with qt4.04:11
predatorfreakand I'm not sure about the others...04:12
cptnwell, the submitted doesn't have to be an opt maintainer of course04:12
predatorfreakcptn: Well, I might suggest a separate list than crux-devel.04:12
predatorfreakcrux-bumps or something like that.04:12
*** treach has joined #crux04:12
predatorfreaktreach: o/04:13
Romstermore like a contrib member can bump a opt port and submit it for review for those opt members that are getting out of date?04:13
Romsterhi treach04:13
predatorfreaktreach: is /o/ a running man version now? :D04:13
treachnot that I know04:14
predatorfreaktreach: Well it looks like a guy running with his hands in the air :P04:14
Romsterhay like that it looks like a star wars fighter ship04:14
predatorfreaktreach: You're attacking me with a Tai Fighter, aren't you!04:15
treachpredatorfreak: actually it was more corporate04:15
treachit was called "Tie-fighter" :>04:15
predatorfreakRomster: Tie Fighter.04:15
predatorfreaktreach: Whatever :D04:15
treachthe "Thai-fighter" model could have been more interesting though :S04:16
treachstep out and beat the shit out of your opponent :D04:16
cptnRomster: back to qt4 and why I brought it up:04:19
cptnsomeone here recently complained about contrib not being accepted as a 1st class ports collection04:20
cptnI think it's issues like this that help users get this impression04:20
predatorfreakWasn't that sepen? o.O04:20
cptnor pitillo04:20
cptnsorry guys, I tend to forget which one says what :-)04:20
predatorfreakOne of those two :D04:20
cptnso maybe we'll have to look for better ways to resolve this in the future04:21
cptnI can see that assigning a bug to sip/mailing him might not have helped here04:21
cptnso maybe a new approach is needed04:21
cptnin the end, this might be more satisfying both for you and the dev guys04:21
predatorfreakcptn: Personally, I think we need both a new approach and to let Romster handle some ports in opt.04:22
predatorfreakHe's proved himself a solid, reliable maintainer.04:22
cptnpredatorfreak: well, you're in opt, I'm not04:22
predatorfreakHell he's probably better than me <<04:22
cptnbut he has a record of doing things differently04:23
cptnwhich IMHO don't work for opt04:23
cptnlook at contrib/gcj stuff for example, which mimiks use flags04:23
predatorfreakcptn: I have a record of wanting to do things differently myself at this point <<04:23
Romsteri've had qt4 for longer in contrib then sip added a copy in opt later if you look at the git logs for both you'll see the commit dates, and since no one at all said a thing not even sip!04:23
Romstertilman said something but did not contact me about it04:23
cptnRomster: look, it's certainly not your fault alone04:24
predatorfreakcptn: What mimics USE flags there?04:24
Romsteri might be to blame for not removing it later but opt is older.04:24
cptnRomster: but if I see this correctly both your port and sips are adapted from mine04:24
predatorfreakI see some stuff that should probably be moved to a post-install script04:24
predatorfreakBut that's about it.04:24
cptnpredatorfreak: build() behaves differently depending on the set of installed ports04:25
predatorfreakcptn: That's what I mean by stuff that should be moved :D04:25
predatorfreakcptn: That's hardly USE flags though ;)04:25
predatorfreakI should know, I've messed with Gentoo in the past on a multitude of levels.04:25
cptnpredatorfreak: or check the distcc detection in contrib/qt404:25
Romsteri've adapted qt4 from qt3 but if you look at my qt4 and sips qt4 there are differences i've spent hours perfecting it sip banged his to gather from qt3 and didn't do any fine tuning and testing.04:26
cptnpredatorfreak: yes your're right04:26
predatorfreakcptn: The distcc stuff in qt4 is because distcc outright breaks qt4.04:26
predatorfreakSo it makes sense, to a certain extent.04:26
Romsterif the user has no distcc no action is taken.04:27
Romsterthat's how i've designed it.04:27
Romsterif the person has distcc it disables it.04:27
juepredatorfreak: it would make sense if all CRUX ports are designed to work with distcc04:28
cptnyeah, I guess that's the point04:28
predatorfreakcptn: Sometimes, I'll admit, Romster is a bit zealous in adopting what he thinks is "right".04:28
cptnRomster added lots of features to his ports04:28
Romsterjue, I totally agree and that's what i have been aiming for.04:28
cptnwithout ever publishing or discussion it04:28
predatorfreakcptn: But on the whole, he's a good maintainer.04:28
Romsterand some i've had to remove from being bitched at.04:28
cptnthat's fine for private ports, probably bad for the reputation of contrib, and certainly no recommendation to join a team04:29
predatorfreakThe only reason people don't bitch too much about me is because I try to get my changes through the "official" way.04:29
cptnpredatorfreak: that's the criterion for "contrib"04:29
Romsteri like to test new ideas and theory's and i don't put half baked ports in the public view only in my private repo.04:29
cptnpredatorfreak: the one for opt used to be "can work in a team too"04:29
predatorfreakWhich takes a bloody lifetime and more than one of my things has been shot down.04:29
predatorfreakNone of which pleases me much, but I do it anyway <<04:30
Romsteri do things the wrong way so it seems.04:30
Romsterso i get marked as bad or something.04:30
cptnRomster: you're just a fan of new features04:30
Romsterand the feeling i get is that i'm only accepted as i maintain a lot and i do a decent job of it.04:31
Romstermaybe so.04:31
treachand sometimes a bit too argumentative, maybe.04:31
cptneach may be simple on its own, and the sum would turn CRUX into something non-simple04:31
Romsterbut are they insane features or practical?04:31
cptnyou know, they make a Pkgfile insanely hard to read04:32
predatorfreakcptn: Trust me.04:32
Romstertreach, i'm trying to tone myself down and try and fit in better.04:32
predatorfreakEven the worst Pkgfile I have seen is NOTHING compared to an ebuild...04:32
treachRomster: yes, I've noticed.04:32
cptnto me, it seems you're working towards ports which automatically tweak themselves04:32
Romsteri admit i got a out of had with my moods but i'm dealing with them.04:32
cptnso the user newer has to touch them again04:33
predatorfreakcptn: Look at Gentoo's mplayer ebuild and compare it to the absolute most giant Pkgfile ever.04:33
cptnpredatorfreak: gentoo is made for that04:33
cptnpredatorfreak: so it's at least easier to understand04:33
predatorfreakcptn: ... not on your life.04:33
Romsteri don't want anyone afraid to even ask me a question in fear i'd bite at them.04:33
treachRomster: from where I'm sitting you seem to have improved quite a bit, and I don't think it's fair to hold past transgressions agains someone forever either.04:33
predatorfreakReading the mplayer ebuild is like reading a foreign language <<04:33
predatorfreakIt's HUGE and fucking confusing.04:33
cptnRomster: originally, we said "let's make the Pkgfiles simple so users can modify them easily"04:34
Romsterpredatorfreak, look at rotwangs openoffice that's the worse Pkgfile i've ever seen.04:34
cptnthis implies that you sometimes _have_ to modify them04:34
cptnbut that was the whole point04:34
Romsterhmm maybe i've gone somewhat mad on the Pkgfiles..04:34
predatorfreakcptn: Honestly, I could still modify Romster's qt4/gcj Pkgfiles.04:35
predatorfreakcptn: Given the core CRUX audience, with a few comments, understanding those is nothing.04:35
cptnpredatorfreak: where does simplicity end?04:35
Romsteri try to keep my ports clean.04:35
cptnI mean, adding random features is okay, where do you draw the boundary?04:35
Romsterthis is for experienced users not newbies too, anyone that can compile stuff shouldn't have issues.04:36
predatorfreakcptn: When it isn't absolutely necessary.04:36
predatorfreakSomething which could be put in a README file or a post-install script.04:36
Romstercptn, when they become annoying and not worth the effort to do.04:36
treachwell. disable distcc could go into a readme04:36
Romsterpoint out what i should change but this is also ment to be about qt4 no?04:37
predatorfreakcptn: As I said, I think Romster's gcj distcc/ccache bits should be moved to a post-install script.04:37
Romsternever really thought of that.04:37
predatorfreakThey're not required to build and will function fine in a post-install script.04:37
predatorfreakAccomplishing the same thing.04:37
jueRomster: for me your distcc/ccache stuff is just annoying04:37
Romsterwell email me improvements i don't see anyone giving me feed back04:38
cptnjue: that's maybe a bit of a harsh way to say it, isn't it?04:38
tilmansit in the sun and drink coffee or read another close-to-flamefest on #crux04:38
predatorfreakjue: Some of us actually use ccache/distcc you know..04:38
* tilman ponders04:38
Romsterand i've been using it for a long time and it works.04:38
predatorfreaktilman: s/coffee/tea/04:38
jueno, it's my personal thought about that but not meannt to be an personal attack04:39
predatorfreakLet's get a REAL flamefest going.04:39
Romsteri'm being tame and i'm gonna make a coffee too so brb.04:39
Romsterjue, email me a diff or comments on ports, that goes with the rest of you give me feed back i'm always open to improvements.04:39
Romsternow brb04:40
predatorfreakRomster: It's not my job to pick apart your ports! :D04:40
Romsteroh and i spend hours if not days doing all this too...04:40
jueRomster: you know what I mean04:40
Romsterjue, not exactly, what part of it is anoying?04:41
Romsternow brb for real.04:41
jueas I said, the distcc/ccache tweaks04:41
predatorfreakjue: on an unrelated note, I would like to know what you have against SHA256 in pkgmk.04:44
Romsterok i'll move them symlink files to a post-install file.04:44
*** kamikazze has joined #crux04:44
Romsterfor distcc/ccache04:44
predatorfreakRomster: Don't forget a post-remove as well.04:44
Romsterthat works for me.04:44
juepredatorfreak: nothing04:44
Romsteryes i'm well aware for post-remove too.04:45
predatorfreakjue: You're the one who went up against my sha256 patch, so I'd assume you have some reason to do so.04:45
Romsterthat would solve that issue for everyone if someone said this sooner i would of done this sooner.04:45
juethe question is how and when we implement it04:45
predatorfreakjue: I've already offered to do any implementation required for CRUX.04:46
predatorfreakjue: and I believe it can't go in fast enough.04:46
Romsteri'd really like pgp and sh256sum as a fall back and depreciate md5sum04:46
predatorfreakThe sooner md5 is obsoleted, the better.04:46
predatorfreakRomster: I've also agreed with tilman that I'm willing to do a gpg implementation should the desire arise.04:47
juepredatorfreak: I don't see any time pressure here.04:47
kamikazzeHello, atm i|m trying to install wlan(ath) on my crux, madwifi installed, now i tryed to set the countrycode via modprobe but, modprobe doesnt find ath_pci. Needs ath_pci to be activated somewhere?04:47
tilmanRomster: i find it unbelievable that you put qt4 in contrib, too. you've around long enough to know that contrib IS NOT SUPPOSED to have duplicates04:47
predatorfreaktilman: He had it in contrib before it was in opt.04:48
tilmanso what04:48
treachkamikazze: did you reboot, or run depmod?04:48
predatorfreakIt was sip who put it in opt without confirming with romster about removing it from contrib.04:48
predatorfreakjue: I do, MD5 is defeated and broken.04:48
Romstertilman, excuse me look up the damn dates of the commit when i added qt4 and when sip put in qt4 in opt before accusing me.04:48
kamikazzeoh, damn. thank you :p04:49
Romsterdepmod -a04:49
Romstermodprobe ...04:49
Romsterand add that module to /etc/rc.modules for the next time you reboot.04:49
predatorfreakkamikazze: BTW, you kinda caught us in the middle of a flamewar, so, dawn your flame retardant suit :D04:50
tilmanRomster: you didn't remove it in between?04:50
cptnRomster: what's confusing me though, you mentioned that sip's port is not optimized at all04:50
cptnRomster: how do you know that if you weren't aware of the opt port?04:50
Romsterno one told me anything so i felt it was my right to not remove it since sip was in the wrong and the fact sip has got slack on updates but the major point was i was mad at not being informed and the fact sip's qt4 port is lacking some changes to use system CFLAGS where i spent hours compiling qt4 and perfecting it.04:51
Romsterdoes that mean nothing around here.04:52
Romsterwaste my time and have someone else step over me and not inform me...04:52
Romsterthen i get accused.04:52
cptn# No duplicates: resolve conflicts with other maintainers. Note that this includes duplicates of ports in contrib as well as in the other official CRUX repositories.04:52
Romsteri would never add a port knowingly knowing it's in opt or core.04:53
treachcptn: wait a moment, if sip added his port post the one in contrib, it's not fair to go after romster04:53
Romsterwhere is sip so this can be resolved.04:53
predatorfreakcptn: As far as I'm concerned, we should add an OptRules page.04:53
cptntreach: well, if he kept it after he realized it was in opt04:53
Romsterlook at the dates i had my port in contrib before sip added his in opt.04:53
predatorfreakcptn: I.E. not taking of ports from contrib/etc without confirmation.04:53
cptntreach: and made improvements which he kept in his port, since "sip was at fault", that's silly04:54
treachwell. I still think sip could have contacted him or something.04:54
tilmanyeah, he should04:54
Romsterwhich sip never did04:54
cptnpredatorfreak: he didn't take it from contrib, but from my httpup04:54
cptnwell, here's another timeline:04:54
predatorfreakcptn: Close enough.04:54
cptnapril 2007: qt4 is in contrib and in my repo04:54
Romsterand on top if it sip later dropped or was it before i can't remember but anyways sip dropped the sdl_* ports that i depend on with no warning also.04:54
cptnthe one in contrib is from sepen04:54
predatorfreakIf it exists in contrib and there's a good maintainer there, someone should confirm it.04:55
cptnI discuss with sepen, and he agrees to drop the contrib port04:55
cptnthen, I ask sip to update lyx which depends on qt404:55
cptnhe pulls in my qt4 port04:55
cptnapparently without checking contrib04:55
cptnthat was in august 200704:55
cptnapparently, Romster added his qt4 port between sepen removed his and sip added his to opt04:56
cptnbut that was certainly no ill will from sip04:56
predatorfreakcptn: Again, I personally think that qt4 and lyx should be moved to contrib.04:57
treachwell, just bulldozering anything in contrib isn't that great either, ill will or not. I don't think Romster's keeping qt4 in contrib could be described as malicious either..04:57
cptn2007-10-24 qt4: new port04:57
Romsteri got anoyed so i kept the port...04:57
predatorfreakOne app does not mean we should have qt4 in opt, nor does lyx technically need qt4.04:58
predatorfreakThere's other interfaces04:58
Romsteras i spent a lot of time i didn't just copy qt3 and not edit it properly like sip did.04:58
cptnoh, sip only imported it in 200804:58
Romsteri went though the source.04:58
treachRomster: lesson, don't get passive-agressive if you see something. you could have dropped sip a mail or something when you noticed.04:58
tilmanwho knows who uses qt4 for his own projects that aren't in ports04:58
tilmanhaving both popular toolkits in opt sounds great to me04:58
Romstertreach, all that was well before sip did his stuff.04:59
Romsteri had no piror warning or i wouldn't of bothered.04:59
cptnRomster: do you say you didn't look at any other qt4 port?04:59
tilmanRomster: if something like this happens again, please either email the other party asking for clarification or bitch at me04:59
predatorfreaktilman: By the same extension they can have in their own personal repo or contrib.04:59
Romstermine looked like qt3 before i edit it.04:59
Romsterfrom opt04:59
Romsterand spent countless hours fine tuning it.05:00
Romsterthat bitch takes ages to build.05:00
treachRomster: just calm down, and read what I and tilman said.05:00
cptnthe initial README of your port is exactly like my qt4's README05:00
Romsteri'm fine i just want a resolution but it might be i keep my work in my personal repo because sip can't keep his stuff upto date.05:00
treachthis whole discussion could have been avoided if you had just mailed sip and said something like "Hey, I already have a better port for qt4 in contrib, what's the great idea?"05:01
tilmanpredatorfreak: "everyone" has easy access to opt ports. contrib is a little bit harder. opt is trusted more. so if somebody wants to put a port in opt that's potentially quite useful to the puyblic, then it should go in opt05:01
Romsterhmmz... so the blame is on me again..05:01
predatorfreaktilman: Irk, but my thing is.05:01
treachNO, sip could have looked in contrib and contacted you, but he didn't, so that's not an option05:01
predatorfreakqt4 is freaking large, takes forever to build and is a bitch to maintain.05:01
cptnpredatorfreak: now that's something I can agree with05:02
tilmanpredatorfreak: yes, that's why it's cool to share it05:02
predatorfreakIf ONLY one application in opt uses it and it's plain obvious to me sip is strapped for time.05:02
tilmani once ported qt3 (or was it even qt4?)05:02
predatorfreakWhy can't it be handed off to Romster?05:02
treachRomster: I'm not trying to assign blame, I'm just telling you how things could have worked out a lot better.05:02
tilmanto fix an xorg bug05:02
predatorfreakand lyx either sip can move to contrib or someone else can pick up in contrib.05:02
cptnpredatorfreak: look, that's just not how crux works05:03
predatorfreakPlus we should still replace tetex with texline.05:03
cptnpredatorfreak: if a maintainer decides that a port belongs to opt, it can go there05:03
cptnit's a moot point ot discuss really05:03
predatorfreakBlarg, why don't we just merge opt and contrib then <<05:03
tilmananyone who wants to port texlive is very welcome to do it05:04
Romsterhi tilman05:04
treachtilman: you're on everyones ignorelist right now, just chill. :D05:04
tilmanno argument there05:04
predatorfreakThey serve the same function with different maintainers.05:04
cptnpredatorfreak: opt = team player, contrib = good maintainers05:04
Romstertilman, i've been thinking not sure how hard it would be being so large.05:04
tilmanand yes, i would put texlive in opt05:04
predatorfreaktilman: Give me five minutes or so and I'll port texlive even though I don't use tetex <<05:04
tilmanbecause i think having latex in opt is important05:04
tilmanpredatorfreak: LBAHBLAHBLAH, 5 minutes my ass05:04
predatorfreaktilman: texlive is just a continuation of tetex.05:05
Romsterso if i made texlive i would have to get opt access then <<05:05
predatorfreakIt should be a fast hackjob of the tetex port.05:05
cptngo ahead05:05
tilmanRomster: no?05:05
Romsterpredatorfreak, had that thought.05:05
Romsterfigures see hostile.05:05
tilman(12:04) <@     cptn> predatorfreak: opt = team player, contrib = good  maintainers05:05
tilmani can paste that again if necessary :D05:05
Romsteryour loss not mine.05:06
predatorfreaktilman: At this rate I'm not even going to be able to maintain stuff for CRUX and maintain my sanity <<05:06
Romsternow if this discussion is not gonna go any were i have better things to be doing.05:06
tilmanpredatorfreak: yeah, me neither05:07
predatorfreakoh what the hell.05:09
treachRomster: unless anyone else objects, I think you should really think over what I and tilman said.05:09
predatorfreaktexlive distributes their shit as a god-damn ISO.05:09
treachRomster: that way you might get something positive out of it.05:09
tilmanpredatorfreak: my point, it's not that easy :)05:09
tilmanpredatorfreak: but seriously, anyone who ports texlive will be loved for at least a month ;p05:10
predatorfreaktilman: Who the fuck distributes shit as a god-damn ISO...05:10
jesse_predatorfreak: tex, duh.05:10
Romsterso what is the resolution i be t it's me to drop qt4 and fuck all my hard work for sips out of date rarely updated port sure...05:10
sepencptn, is this link (or ideas contained inside) available from another location?
jesse_tetex was not a piece of cake, but it at least was not a complete mess as texlive has become.05:10
treachRomster: no, that's not at all what we said.05:11
jesse_Which probably is one big reason as to why it has not been ported.05:11
treachRomster: you should stop take everything like everyone is out to get you. we are not.05:11
Romsteri've even been trying to get my moods under control as you can see but this is pushing it.05:12
sepencptn, many thanks, I found those links very interesting05:12
cptnsepen: it was a different time though, so keep this in mind :-)05:12
cptnsepen: I remember I didn't like sip at all back then05:12
Romsterwant em to drop it i will want me to put it in opt i can't tilman wont have a bar of soap with it.05:13
cptnsepen: but that changed, obviously :-)05:13
predatorfreakoh my god there's like fifty different packages for texlive in SUSE <<05:13
tilmanRomster: what?05:13
Romsterif sip wants to give the opt version away maybe.. since sip doesn't have time to update it.05:13
Romstertilman, it's a phrase.05:13
Romster"wouldn't have a bar of soap" = would not do that if that was the last thing in the world.05:14
predatorfreakLet's see what Fedora have for texlive ports...05:14
treachRomster: I strongly suggest you fire off a _friendly_ mail to sip, and try to work things out. I think he honestly just missed your port in contrib, and wasn't trying to deliberatly bulldozer you.05:14
Romstercontact sip see what sip says...05:14
predatorfreakwell, SRPMs, whatever05:15
predatorfreakMY GOD IT'S SANELY PACKAGED O.O05:15

jesse_It is very surprising that (la)tex has more or less been tossed aside and put into a very unusual distribution system. :/05:33
predatorfreaktilman: My only question would be "Is there anything particularly wrong with just using tetex?" :D05:34
predatorfreakBesides the fact it's unmaintained05:34
tilmanerr, oops05:34
tilmanthere's some security issues05:34

treachit's umaintained, remember? And everyone else seems to be jumping for texlive05:35
jesse_treach: didn't you mention debian had released a few security patches for tetex?05:35
predatorfreakYou'd be amazed the fucking crazy shit in those things.05:35
jesse_Several months earlier.05:35
treachjesse_: not that I remember, maybe they did,05:35
Romsternot as crazy as you predatorfreak <<05:36
predatorfreakRomster: True, but still crazy05:36

*** destruct1 is now known as destruct05:37

predatorfreakI'm actually pissed by the fact Reiser4 will go downhill now.05:43
predatorfreakAlso, the texlive texmf bit is 230MB...05:43
Romsterwould like to see BtrFS listed there once it's stable.05:44
treachit will probably be. but I would like to see it *used* :p05:44
Romsterpredatorfreak, unless someone else forks it or something maybe han can work on a laptop in the prison?05:44

treachthat would be to allow him do something productive.05:45
Romsterpredatorfreak, hehe05:45

predatorfreakIt's impossible...05:46
predatorfreakThey CLEARLY don't intend for humans to package it.05:46

aonwell basically it just gets the tarballs, extracts them and lets you merge etc11:05
jsI hate it not having tcp46, I hate updating the base system to update ports, I hate the kernel bugs (mostly I/O-related)11:05
aontcp46 (if it is what i think it is) is evil crap11:06
jsit's not if deployed correctly11:06
aonhow can it be so hard to bind two sockets11:06
jstheo never understood why it is bad, he just said so because itojun said that11:06
jsaon: the problem is that you can't bind the same port to v4 and v6 under certain circumstances11:07
aoninteresting, never seen that happen as of yet11:07
jshappens when you have interface with a dynamic IP11:07
jsand want to bind it v4 and v611:08
jsit was a PITA, so I just disabled v6 back then11:08
jsand since even the OpenBSD guys didn't have a solution to the problem...11:09
aoni have v4 from dhcp and static v6 on one box, and dhcp+rtsol on the others, never had binds failing11:09
jsmy machine is faster now that it runs netbsd, has no more I/O problems with the network card and no more needs the base system to be updated to update a port11:09
aonwell i tried to run netbsd on this box but couldn't11:09
jsand I also recompiled everything with -fstack-protector-all -fwrapv ;)11:09

eschew_obfuscatnI remember CRUX-Evolution coming out a few releases ago, and I was wondering if something like "CRUX-Evolution 2.4" would be of any interest?21:32
Romsteris Evolution a different arch?21:32
Romsteri'm not aware of CRUX-Evolution21:32
eschew_obfuscatnNo, it was a CRUX release that included a more complete desktop environment.21:32
Romsteri've been with crux since CRUX-2.1 came out.21:32
eschew_obfuscatn"CRUX-Evolution 2.0.1"21:33
eschew_obfuscatnQuote from the README:21:33
eschew_obfuscatn"CRUX-Evolution offers you a complete desktop system: it has gnome and kde, all is needed to use the printer, the alsa packages, and"21:34
RomsterGiuseppe Coviello hmm no idea who he is.21:34
Romsterit would be best to contact that person.21:34
Romsteryou can install kde or gnome as it is with crux.21:34
eschew_obfuscatnWell, that person has not done anything release-wise before or since.21:34
eschew_obfuscatnHere's the thing.21:34
eschew_obfuscatnI'm already building tons of packages from scratch against 2.421:35
eschew_obfuscatnand I'd rather share my extensive efforts than just build them and be stingy.21:35 found a email.21:35
eschew_obfuscatnSo I was thinking that I could contribute a "CRUX-Evolution" of sorts.21:35
Romsteranother words you want more prebuilt21:36
Romsterand a even bigger iso..21:36 domain has expired21:36
eschew_obfuscatnNo, I'm building it already for myself.21:36
Romstergoogle his name might find him elsewhere.21:36
eschew_obfuscatnI figured that it would save some others the trouble down the line.21:36
Romsteryou can get the iso.git and edit away at that.21:36
eschew_obfuscatnI'm already going to master such a CD for my own purposes.21:36
Romstermaybe but i compile everything i use and i maintain so it wouldn't be of any use to me maybe to others..21:37
Romstercrux is source based though.21:37
eschew_obfuscatnI know that.21:37
Romsteryou can make a custom iso with more packages though.21:37
eschew_obfuscatnThat's what I mean.21:37
eschew_obfuscatnI mean, it couldn't hurt to contribute such a thing, could it?21:37
Romsterthat would save time include gnome kde repos.21:37
Romsternah wouldn't hurt.21:37
eschew_obfuscatnIntegrating HAL, D-BUS, GNOME, KDE, etc. is such a pain21:38
eschew_obfuscatnmy efforts could be used to avoid duplication for people who want a desktop built from CRUX21:38
Romstersome might like it to save time jaeger has a updated iso but not gnome or kde or xfce4 on it, xorg is on the iso though.21:38
eschew_obfuscatnxorg is on the official 2.421:38
Romsterusually people pick one or the other not both.21:38
Romsteryeah xorg is on the iso21:38
eschew_obfuscatnI got sick of Slamd64 misbehaving so I reinstalled 2.4 yesterday and have been compiling ever since.21:39
eschew_obfuscatnAnd I like to be helpful from time to time :)21:39
Romsterif you have a few boxes you can setup distcc.21:40
Romsterand if you setup a ramfs for port building it'll be faster too.21:40
eschew_obfuscatnThat's not a bad idea, but I haven't tried it before.21:40
eschew_obfuscatnI don't use ports.21:40
eschew_obfuscatnI don't use pkgmk either.21:41
Romsteryou have to be to be compiling Pkgfiles.21:41
Romsteryou doing it by hand?21:41
eschew_obfuscatn./configure - make - make DESTDIR=/pkg install - cd /pkg - tar -c * | gzip > /crux/package#1.2.3-1.pkg.tar.gz21:41
eschew_obfuscatnfor every package.21:41
eschew_obfuscatnpkgadd seems to like 'em.21:42
Romsteryou could use pkgmk....21:42
eschew_obfuscatnWould it be any faster?21:42
Romsterthat's the whole idea of pkgutils and crux.21:42
Romsteryes most stuff is done for you.21:43
Romstergo and read the handbook on the package manager.21:43
Romsterwhat your doing is more linux from scratch.21:43
* eschew_obfuscatn is masochistic.21:43
Romstercurx is basicly like LFS with a package manager.21:43
eschew_obfuscatnThat's kind of why I like it.21:43
RomsterPkgfiles are dead simple.21:43
eschew_obfuscatnLFS is too much trouble.21:43
Romsterprt-get depinst --instal-scripts kde21:44
eschew_obfuscatnWell I will read up on this, then.21:44
Romsteronce you add in the prtdir to /etc/prt.get.con and got the ports file in /etc/ports/21:44
Romsteryou are so doing it the hard way.21:44
eschew_obfuscatnI've been known to be rather difficult at times...21:45
Romsterbasicly there is commands and the Pkgfile for each port contain instructions on how to compile.21:46
eschew_obfuscatnSo basically Pkgfile is just a script that does what I do by hand anyway?21:46
Romstercd to /usr/ports/....21:47
Romstertype pkgmk21:47
Romsterand there is pkgadd21:47
Romsterman pkgutils or read that url i pasted.21:47
Romsterand prt-get is a front end to handle dependencys.21:48
Romsterprt-get depinst port21:48
eschew_obfuscatnYet for some strange reason I still think that the hard way is better.21:48
* Romster facepams21:49
eschew_obfuscatnFor example, HAL depends on a user and group haldaemon that's not defined by default in CRUX, and the package tools don't make that change automatically.21:49
Romsterdo it your way but everyone here is gonna think your strange, well i will.21:49
Romsterthere is pre and post install scripts to handle that.21:49
eschew_obfuscatnI didn't know that pkgadd even used such things.21:50
Romsterprt-get depinst --install-scripts hal21:50
Romsteror edit the install scripts option in /etc/prt-get.conf21:50
Romsteryou didn't read the hand book that's why.21:50
eschew_obfuscatnYes, I'm strange, forgive me my faults.21:51
Romsteryour forgiven it doesn't bother me just your doing it the hard way IMO when there is tools to handle this already.21:52
Romsterif you wanna go your way I'd recommend LFS21:52
eschew_obfuscatnWell, either way, if I can offer up a CRUX CD with all my work already done for others to use, do you think that would be acceptable?21:53
Romstermake it and offer it.21:53
Romstercontribute and ask it be listed on the site.21:54
eschew_obfuscatnOne last question, then: what do I do to offer it up?21:54
Romsterask a crux member. there is a group listed on the wiki on the site.21:54
Romsteremail or them irc21:55
eschew_obfuscatnOK, well, when the time comes I will do just that.21:55
Romsteryou could clone the ports tree and edit from that and put them in a seperate repo.21:55
eschew_obfuscatnI don't know anything at all about ports.21:56
Romsterthen read the manual...21:56
eschew_obfuscatnAnd I already have all the sources for everything locally.21:56
Romsteredit /etc/pkgmk21:56
Romstersomething like that and throw all the sources in there.21:57
Romsterthe package manager can use them then if they are what pkgmk is after for the Pkgfile21:57
eschew_obfuscatnI'll look into it some more.21:58
eschew_obfuscatnAnyway, thanks for the help.21:58
eschew_obfuscatnI've got to go for now.21:58
Romsterno problemo.21:58
eschew_obfuscatnI'm going to set up a distcc cluster.21:58
