Rotwang1R: sepen: have you looked at that patch?apropos srati05:58
sepensrati? you mean ati sources right?06:03
Rotwang1srati misspelling of ati06:03
Rotwang1which means shitty ati in english06:03
*** maxus has quit IRC06:07
*** Rotwang has quit IRC06:07
Rotwang1anyway, it applies cleanly on 8-7 and makes ati to build on 2.6.2606:08
Rotwang1and god knows when they are going to release 2.6.26 compatibile version of ati06:08
Rotwang1maybe next month maybe not06:09
namenlosanyone knows problems with 2.6.26 and the nvidia driver?06:12
sepenRotwang1, but the patch is applied to your kernel (outside the port tree I think)06:13
Rotwang1sepen: patch is applied on ati06:14
Rotwang1fire_something.c and .h06:14
sepenfiregl isn't on the ati port06:14
jwsnamenlos: speaking the new drivers (173.14.09) have support for 2.6.26 kernel so shouldnt have any problems with that06:15
jwswell hopefully06:15
namenlosjws, thx06:16
Rotwang1firegl_public.c and firegl_public.h from ati sources is patched so it builds with 2.6.26 :p06:16
sepenhmmm common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.h06:17
sepenso yesterday afternoon I was too busy06:18
sepenI'll try newly06:18
sepenRotwang1, excuse me, I was wrong :)06:19

cptn"The OSS v4 is better than ALSA"07:13
cptnnot that's a statement07:13
*** fetid has joined #crux07:17
augustaoi tried OSS 4 a couple of months ago07:29
augustaoi don't really see the reason why someone would prefer it over alsa07:29
aoncptn: well it's not worse either07:31
cptnaon: depends on the point of view I guess07:34
cptnit's not integrated in the kernel, and there's no port available from portdb07:34
cptnin this sense, alsa's better IMO07:34
*** jdolan has joined #crux07:38
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o jdolan07:38
jwsThanks for settleing that one up cptn was getting sick of the thread :)07:38

treachheh, swiss army knives are better than a real saw, screwdriver, knife, etc. :>08:27
Rotwangbut awesomeness of swiss knives are balanced by swis guards appereance ;]08:27
treachafaik, they have pistols nowadays. iirc they used halberds before. not swiss army knives. :p08:29
Rotwangbut they are still wearing pajamas and funny hats08:31

*** lennart has quit IRC10:36
Rotwanggo|dfish: soooo?10:36
Rotwangwhat was the problem?10:36
go|dfishThere may be an issue with my SATA controller.10:37
go|dfishWhich is causing my hard-disk to perform poorly... ugh *cry*10:38
go|dfishiwlwifi is also acting up on me.10:38
go|dfishI'm really annoyed, lots of things going wrong, on this newer kernel my system is idling at a higher temp and higher wattage usage than before.10:40
go|dfishBut yes, my disk seems to be the issue for the slowness.10:41
tilmango|dfish: 2.6.26?10:48
go|dfishI was, yeah. Currently booted into
tilman2.6.26 sucks performance-wise for me, too10:50
tilmani also went back10:50
go|dfishyeah :/10:51
go|dfishAll this tickless stuff, I'm wondering if it's worth it10:52
tilmansure it is10:53
tilmanat least with modern cpus, right?10:53
*** fetid has quit IRC10:54
*** sepen has quit IRC10:59
go|dfishmmm modern11:12
racergo|dfish: are you called "goldfish" for the same reason we call people goldfish around here?11:13
racergo|dfish: "Goldfish, because every lap around the bowl is like a new experience"11:13
go|dfishIf you want.11:14
spaceninjahow will I install crux on a eee pc 900 without a cdrom?11:34
*** lennart has joined #crux11:41
go|dfishI guess you wont?11:46
spaceninjathe eeepc is a hard buy, it's so neat, but at the same time it feels like a waste of money11:48
augustaospaceninja: there's some docs on how to install crux over nfs in the wiki11:51
*** joacim has joined #crux11:51
augustaoand i guess you could also boot it with PXE11:52
spaceninjawhat's that?11:57
spaceninjaor maybe I get the msi wind11:57
go|dfishMy dad has one, i find it too annoying to use.11:59

*** namenlos has joined #crux13:34
treachtilman: it makes you smell like an ashtray, it annoys your neighbours and it can cost you a lot of money if/when you move out of your apartment. That is, if it doesn't kill you first. :>13:35
treachSurely that's signs of greatness.13:36
Rotwangyeah, living on the edge13:36
tilmanRotwang: are you a smoker?13:36
Rotwangtilman: yes13:36

tilmanwell, they were expensive 10 years ago, and by now they are more than twice as expensive i think :D13:38
Rotwang~1,6 euro for pack13:38
treachah. But I don't think it's as expensive as being sued for the cost of sanitizing the flat after you move out. :>13:39
sepenRotwang, nice! I think so I should commit13:39
tilmancogito ergo committere13:40
treachbeing a non smoker I don't really know, but I think a pack here is like 4+ E.13:40
cruxbot[contrib.git]: ati: Updated 8.6 -> 8.7. Fixed issue with 2.6.26.x kernels. (Thanks to Rotwang)13:41
tilmantreach: yes. and they went down from 25 a pack to 21 or so ;>13:41
