aoncould someone please shoot people who announce dates for important issues as a week number?10:40
* aon is installing gcal to make some sense out of them10:41

*** _Progress_ has joined #crux14:32
_Progress_hi, can i install package without download all port?14:33
sepenyou mean the pkg.tar.gz directly?14:33
_Progress_i want to install phpmyadmin without all port of mike14:34
_Progress_just phpmyadmin14:35
sepenjust grab the Pkgfile and all sources in a local directory and run fakeroot pkgmk -d14:35
Rotwangwithout his repository14:35
Rotwang_Progress_: you've got a command on portdb how to do it14:36
Rotwangsepen: btw. have you seen my new pkgmk patch? ;]14:36
sepenwhere is it?14:36
_Progress_Rotwang: yes. But it download the Pkg and checksum14:36
RotwangI opened new ticket at FS14:36
sepenok I'll see14:36
Rotwang_Progress_: whats wrong with it?14:36
sepenRotwang, did you try prt-get install -if ?14:38
sepenI think it does the same14:38
Rotwangsepen: no14:38
Rotwangif you ignore footprint the all you get is a message Footprint ignored14:39
sepenimho default option should be check the footprint14:39
Rotwangwith this patch it shows you whats wrong but doesnt fail14:39
sepenjust it is as Per designed14:39
Rotwangyeah i made it as an option14:39
_Progress_sepen: tnx a lot :)14:40
sepenyou're welcome14:40
sepenRotwang, and did you tried with pkgmk -uf ?14:40
sepenhmmm *err14:41
sepenRotwang, well I think I should study more the idea14:41
Rotwangidea is simple14:42
sepenyeah, but I'll do at least some tests14:42
Rotwangif you have disabled footprint check this option shows you exact files if mismatch occurs14:42
sepensorry, I think I don't understand  you initially14:42
sepenyeah I get the idea14:42
Rotwangfootprint mismatches occurs too often imo14:43
Rotwangso i disabled checking it in config14:43
sepenfootprint mismatches shouldn't occur imho14:43
Rotwangit depends what you have installed14:44
sepene.g: I don't like those missmatches for a production server box14:44
Rotwangbut its almost impossible sometimes to control that especially in bigger programs14:44
sepenRotwang, for example I report a missmatch problem with subversion when apache is installed14:44
sepenand just they created a new port -> mod_svn14:45
sepenI think split some ports are also pretty nice14:45
Rotwangyes, i get it14:45
sepenbut I need also time for wordering about your patch14:45
sepenIll try, sure14:45
Rotwangbut still its almost impossible to control14:46
sepenyep, but crux is that-> DIY14:46
sepenwell now I need to prepare some food14:46

VileYou suppose correctly, treach. I compiled mplayer and everything is working great. :)16:06
rehabdollvlc is one big pile of turd16:07
VileThat's funny, rehabdoll, I downloaded your Pkgfile. :D16:08
*** VileTimes has quit IRC16:08
teKthere's a good (did not test it myself) GUI for mplayer, it's called smplayer.. i planned creating a port for it, darned16:08
pablo__how can i browse the compilation script of a probram?16:09
teKdo you mean the Pkgfile?16:09
teKOr what is a compilation script?16:09
pablo__yeah, dont know how they are called16:10
VileThanks, teK. I'll look into that.16:10
pablo__yeah the pkgfile16:10
*** Vile has quit IRC16:10
teKpablo__: via the portdb on
rehabdollCompiling smplayer should be easy. It only depends on Qt.16:10
*** VileTimes has joined #crux16:10
teKqt? *shiver*16:11
teK[ ] create a port for smplayer16:11
pablo__teK: it doesnt appear
*** VileTimes has quit IRC16:11
teKyeah because it's available via rsync only16:12

VileTimesWas ist ein shones frontend mit keinen QT scheiss?16:35
VileTimesIt does if I'm going to impress people into thinking linux is user friendly.16:35
treachyou know, you're supposed to watch the movie, not mplayer, right? :p16:36
teKtreach: but those shortcuts are so hartd to rembember :>>16:36
teKVileTimes: ich weiss es nicht, ich benutze mplayer ohne Frontend16:36
treachif you want to impress people with "ease of use" crux just MIGHT be the wrong starting point. :p16:37
VileTimesOk, to hell with this wienerschnitzel. I'll impress the ladies my l33t command-line movie playing skillz. :)16:37
teK"look, prt-get depinst foo installs automagically foo, is this not great?"16:38

VileTimesHey, is there any reason why the byte code interpretor is off by default in the Freetype crux port?16:40
VileTimesIt really does make fonts more bearable to look at.16:41
treachit's not needed anymore afaik16:41
*** RedShift has joined #crux16:42
*** thrice` has joined #crux16:42
VileTimesI've been going through a bunch of sites trying to make fonts look less crappy. The bytecode thing helped a bit. Still nothing as smoothe as on other distros though.16:43
VileTimesTicklestix' vistafonts port is nice, but it could be smoother.16:44
*** pablo__ has left #crux16:45
treachantialiasing on and medium hinting is good enough for me with bitstream vera and terminus16:46
VileTimesThat's the next step: playing around with various settings for specific fonts, but I'll save that for another day. I'm sick of fonts for now,16:50

VileTimesKDE4 is starting to look quite nice, but it's still a resource hog. I'm more than happy with fluxbox.17:07
treachfreight train vs VW beetle17:08
*** VileTimes has quit IRC17:08
*** VileTimes has joined #crux17:09
VileTimesHey, if you're going to waste resources, go nuts. KDE4 has it right.17:09
*** joacim__ has joined #crux17:10
treachbah, compared to vista it's positively skinny. :>17:10
VileTimesThis is true. KDE4 clocks in at slightly higher than a clean XP install.17:11
treachand it will probably get ligther as time goes on, when all the code is in place, rather than having huge parts still being in the "wip" category17:11
VileTimesI tried KDE4 for a while and might go back to it if ever I buy some ridiculously high-end machine. Right now, booting into a ~30meg desktop is very fun. :)17:13
*** joacim_ has quit IRC17:13
treachwell, nothing wrong with that, different capabilities.17:13
treachwindow managers are light, but you have to do a lot more stuff manually.17:14
*** faggot has left #crux17:15
VileTimesSure, that's a trade-off, but most people who would sacrifice eye candy for performance have no trouble learning things to get what they want.17:15
treachwell, it's not all abput eye candy. stuff like phonon is a really good idea.17:16
treachlots of integration and stuff going on in the background, dismissing the whole thing as "eyecandy" is a huge mistake.17:18
VileTimesWow ... just read up on phonon. That *is* a very good idea.17:19
VileTimesEither way, it still doesn't change the fact that KDE4 is similar in size to Windows XP.17:19
treachtrue, but it does a *lot* more.17:19
VileTimes(I'm talking about system RAM, not disk space)17:20
treachyou get nothing for nothing, you know. :)17:20
treachyeah, got that17:20
VileTimesThat it does. I look forward to when it finally comes together. I'll install it on a separate hard drive and see how it flies.17:21
treachbut I always use to challenge people with that "kde is bloated" attitude to load up their "lightweight" wm with compareable applications, and compare it to kde.17:21
treachalmost invariably, they will use MORE ram than kde.17:21
rehabdollshared libs..17:22
treachwhich is why it's not bloated, it just has more functionality.17:22
rehabdollbut that does no good if you only use 10% of all the stuff kde loads17:22
VileTimesOh, I'm not disputing that. I'm the only person that uses my machines and I don't mind command-line tools, so light WMs are the way to go.17:22
treachthat's entirely true, and thats why I'm not propagating everyone should use it, just stop bagging it out of ignorance.17:23
treach(that does not indicate that anyone present does so.)17:23
VileTimesIf you need to have a computer that makes Granny happy, your wife, your son, your daughter, and that idiot uncle Freddy, Crux & Fluxbox probably isn't the way to go. :)17:24
treachno, I'd advice a pure framebuffer installation in that case. :p17:24
*** joacim has quit IRC17:24
VileTimesWhy be mean to that idiot Uncle Freddy? He might never want to use your machine if you are.17:25
treachI'd be generous and give the idiot uncle /bin/false as shell. ;)17:26
VileTimesEither way, most people want to buy a computer that the whole family will use... sort of like a toilet.17:27
treachwell, computer illiteracy is not really an obstacle to using a wm, really. all it takes is that someone sets it up properly.17:28
treachI've had such users running fluxbox, and they were pretty happy, once they figured out how to get the menu out. :p17:29
VileTimesOf course. I've setup a Linux system once for a complete techno-phobe. She wanted email and a web browser, and that is really all she got along with huge icons to click on that she can't possibly miss.17:30
VileTimesYay, Fluxbox!17:30
VileTimes... and idesk.17:31
treachyou could have installed the email plugin and set her shell to firefox. ;)17:31
VileTimesNot unless I fancied doing something other than spending nights at a woman's place who is almost twice my age.17:32

_Progress_treach: is it something wrong in ?18:04
treachnot that I can see.18:05
treachand if just simply rebooting helps, then there's presumeably no problem with the scripts.18:05
treachVile: if you don't belive what I said you can always ask google. I know a user here had such problems with one of his machines.18:06
_Progress_if i change ip with ifconfig in /etc/rc.d/net will there some diference?18:07
treachnot other than that you get another adress..18:07
VileWhat a very odd network card. You wouldn't happen to have remembered the brand/model?18:08
treachno. I think it was some gigabit adapter18:08
VileEither way, linux users should only ever buy Atheros based cards.18:09
treachintel works well enough for me. :>18:09
teKso did 3com, realtek and marvell18:10
_Progress_one more thing. How can i set domainname?18:10
VileAtheros chipsets might be in any of those brands.18:10
treachgood old 3c509 <318:11
Vilecheck /etc/rc.conf18:11
treach_Progress_: depends on what you mean.18:11
treach /etc/rc.conf, /etc/hosts and maybe some place else I've forgotten about18:12
_Progress_Vile: i try it with DOMAINNAME=18:12
_Progress_but it is still18:12
_Progress_bash-3.2$ domainname18:12
_Progress_i edit hosts file too18:12
VileAh! You want to change your bash prompt.18:13
VileCheck out /etc/profile and modify the PS1 and PS2 variables.18:13
treachbut he needs to have a name first. ;)18:13
_Progress_i can chage prompt from ~/.bashrc18:14
VileYou might also want to add the line "export SHELL=/bin/bash" so it'll use your.bashrc file.18:14
teKsepen: found a fix..18:14
sepenIm reading around that  SUBDIRS += bldprogs libs VBox recompiler18:15
sepen ifneq ($(wildcard apps),)18:15
VileThat line will help xterms and urxvts know what to do.18:16
sepenteK, sounds reasonable, apparently they need the makefile template too18:16
sepenone per source-subdir18:17
teKto me, the reason for this patch working is not obvious..18:17
treach"usermod -s /bin/bash"18:17
teKto be honest18:17
treachecho "/bin/bash" >> /etc/shells18:18
sepenteK, also why don't use the kernel tun device ?18:18
sepenI need more knownledgement, reading it ...18:18
teKThis year at OSCON it seemed that you couldn't throw a stone without hitting someone from Microsoft (and in fact, I'm sure several people did).18:18
treach_Progress_: unless you've already set those things. ^18:19
teKsepen: do this, I will try this fix (STILL compiling)18:19
sepenme too18:19
_Progress_treach: in profile i just export LC18:20
treachthat's not necessarily related, but you should really have those things set as above, or you can run into problems.18:21
_Progress_you mean this: export SHELL=/bin/bash ??18:22
treachNo, I meant what I said.18:22
teKfinished without errors (for me)18:22
Viletreach is right. You should make sure to do as he said.18:22
* sepen still compiling18:23
* treach spends a second pitying sepens computer. :p18:23
_Progress_treach: would you repeat. i read here man iptables and...i miss something18:23
teKdid I mention, I really bought me a Core 2 Quad with 12megs of L2 cache? ..18:23
Rotwanghmm, is there some app to manage root window?18:24
treach_Progress_: [01:18] <treach> echo "/bin/bash" >> /etc/shells18:24
Rotwangie i want some icons and stuff on my root window18:24
_Progress_i have it there18:24
treach_Progress_:  [01:17] <treach> "usermod -s /bin/bash"18:24
Rotwangmy wm doesnt manage that18:24
_Progress_these too18:25
VileThen you should be all set.18:25
treachLOTS of people just run useradd and never bother with the -s switch.18:25
treachthen things mysteriously fail. ;>18:25
_Progress_i do that18:26
_Progress_but my terminal on xfce doesnt start :D18:26
* treach blames xfce without blinking. ;)18:26
sepenteK, and this other
sepen_Progress_, doesn't start?18:27
_Progress_well it start but i was cant to write nothing..,18:27
sepentreach, I blame you too18:28
treach<- evil mastermind stealing peoples keypresses. >:)18:28
Rotwangso such app doesnt exist?18:29
Rotwangor you dont know one? ;]18:29
sepenhmm 0 results here
treachRotwang: what?18:30
Rotwangtreach:  is there some app to manage root window? ie i want some icons and stuff on my root window, my wm doesnt manage that18:30
treachfor example18:30
* Rotwang googling18:31
treachdoesn't manage your root window, X does that.. but it puts icons on it18:31
Vile.. or the most bodacious wbar!18:32
Rotwangmeh wbar is only app launcher18:32
treachFvwmButtons ftw. :p18:32
Vilewbar is obviously inferior to idesk.18:33
Rotwangyes wbar is nice18:34
Rotwangdamn shniggies port is borken x|18:35
treachI'd say if you *really* want stuff like that, fvwm is a good choice. "..anything you want, you've got it..".18:35
treachMight take a while though. ;)18:35
Rotwangim used to awesome18:35

Rotwangeverybody should be happy18:49
sepenusers can't write to /usr/share18:49
*** pablo has quit IRC18:49
Rotwangso whats the solution?18:49
sepeninstead they should be have ~/app or something similar18:50
sepenI've also a port with the same problem, but in my own repository, not in contrib18:50
RotwangI cant modify sources and it seems to be hardcoded18:50
Rotwanghmm, maybe I should remove phun .18:51
RotwangI mailed once author of phun about that issue but no answer so far18:51
sepenI'll be happy with a clean contrib repo, I really like contrib18:51
* Rotwang kisses treach18:51

VileSo many options ...19:03
VileI hate choices.19:03
treachyou should probably use a mac. :>19:03
sepenor keygrab for your mouse19:04
treachno, wait. gnome. mac usually provides with ONE way to do things, while gnome usually provides NO way. And since less is more... :>19:05
VileHey, don't laugh. If they weren't so ridiculously overpriced, I'd have bought one... just so I can tinker with it to the point where it screams for Big Daddy Jobs to come save its sorry ass.19:05
Viletreach, Macs "just work", ok?19:06
treachI'm not conviced.19:06
treachI've seen too many instances of it beeing just too damned confusing.19:07
VileHonestly, I don't think I'm ready for a Mac. I have yet to cultivate a taste for either jazz or world beat music.19:07
* treach updates 96 packages on his opensuse 11, and wonders what will break. 19:07
VileSuse is the one distribution I have never ever tried.19:08
treachif you want a good kde dist it's probably the best.19:09
treachotherwise there's not much point, I guess19:09
VileI'll keep that in mind for when KDE4 is ready.19:09
treachmmh. 11.1 should be good.19:10
sepenxfce4 just rocks!19:10
treachkde 4.2 and a lot more applications that currently aren't done will be done by then19:10
VileI don't know what the heck possessed the folks at ubuntu to go with gnome. KDE was always a step ahead.19:11
*** pablo has quit IRC19:11
treachsepen: I'm sorry but xfce just don't play in the same leage.19:11
treachVile: agreed.19:11
sepenyeah -qt419:11
Vilesepen: Either go budget (fluxbox, openbox, fvwm, etc.) or go big ... *really* big.19:12
*** Ammon0 has joined #crux19:12
VileAnything else is a waste of time.19:12
treachand sun is almost comical. gnome + openoffice must have been among the biggest mistakes in recent history.19:12
sepenI've no problem with desktops environments or wmanagers19:12
sepenI like bbox too19:12
sepenbut atm xfce4 is lightweight and has enough features compared to fluxbox and the others19:13
treachsepen: I didn't mean that xfce was inferior or so, just that they are not compareable.19:14
sepen + goodies?19:14
treachas I said before, it's like comparing a freight train and a vw beetle.19:14
sepentreach, I get the point that gnome Vs kde is the typical questin19:14
treachbut it's a irrelevant one IMO.19:15
VilePersonally, I've always felt that it was KDE or a super-paired down wm. The in-betweens are a waste of time and resources.19:15
treachsince there really isn't much to discuss, from a techincal point of view it's a KO for KDE19:15
treachVile: yeah, from my pov, gnome isn't really a desktop ENVIRONMENT. it's a filemanager, a window manager and a panel and a few kidnapped gtk applications.19:17
treachthere is very little in the form of integration, so it's not much of an environment. :)19:17
treachintegration between various applications, and between various applications and the "DE", that is.19:18
VileAgreed, treach. It's like that discussion we had a few weeks ago about distros. How can anything call itself a "distribution" if the developers themselves claim that it is unsupportable?19:19
treachgood question.19:19
VileIs it a mere hodge-podge of packages or is it a distribution?19:20
*** racer has joined #crux19:20
treachDon't ask me, I've never gotten along with gentoo. :D19:20
VileMe neither, although I do enjoy many of their Howtos ... and their distfiles.19:21
go|dfishgentoo used to be brilliant.19:21
go|dfishUntil they ruined emerge/portage , and drove all the decent devs away.19:21
Rotwanggentoo is fugly ;]19:22
VileArch and Gentoo howtos have helped me tons so far using crux so far, so you know.19:23
Vile... so far19:23
treachwell, they have tons more users so that's hardly surprising.19:23
treach5-6 years ago, you'd have found tons of help in the slackware/redhat section instead19:24
VileI did back then. :)19:24
RotwangI like how crux keeps lazy n00bs away ;]19:24
treachfor crux? :D19:24
VileNo, for Slackware.19:24
treachok ;)19:24
treachwe should have a poll for ex slackware users. :>19:25
* treach raises hand19:25
Rotwangquick poll for ex archers19:25
* Rotwang raises hand19:25
VileMy point isn't about "size of userbase = good distro". What I'm trying to say is that gentoo and arch's howto sections are far more useful to a crux user than say debian or ubuntu forums.19:25
treachof course19:26
joacimdoes using slackware for a whole day count?19:26
treachdebian and ubuntu is at the other end of the spectra19:26
VileSlackware simply isn't worth using these days.19:26
treachlots of automagic things that screws you over unless you watch out19:26
treachno, I came to that conclusion too a few years back19:27
VileEither go for the hold-your hand distros, or go source-based. Anything in the middle (like Slackware right now) fails.19:28
Vile42 seconds from the moment I hit my "on" button to a desktop ... :S19:36
VileI've heard rumors of 16 second boot-to-desktop times. I have a feeling that this is a beast that I shall never see.19:37
