Rotwangsepen: I doubt if it fixes my error04:45
sependid you tried?04:46
sepenas I said yesterday, and also some weeks ago (when I decided to add qt4 as dep), vbox depends on how the QT environment is installed in your box, ATM vbox tries to detect if both (qt3 and qt4 packages) are installed
Rotwangsepen: but i got an error04:49
sepenI think I could patch the configure script. but I want to see your error (please paste) before nothing04:49
sepenRotwang, did you export the QTDIR from any other script or something before running pkgmk?04:50
sepenRotwang, /usr/share/qt3/bin/uic ???04:51
sepenRotwang, did you tried with my patch?04:51
RotwangIm doing it atm04:51
sepenplease do it04:51
Rotwangbut i have both qt3 and qt4 installed so i think it wont change much04:51
sepen$ pkginfo -i | grep ^qt04:53
sepenqt3 3.3.7-104:53
sepenqt4 4.4.1-104:53
sepenI can build vbox ok here04:53
cptnsepen: but you have QTDIR exported, right?04:53
cptnas this is what fixes it for Rotwang04:53
sepencptn, the qtdir is provided to the configure script as a switch04:53
sepen--with-qt-dir or --with-qt4-dir04:54
cptnwell, clearly that didn't work04:54
cptnas it was in the original port, which broke for Rotwand04:54
cptnerr, Rotwang, sorry04:54
cptnbut once QTDIR was set it built04:54
Rotwangsepen: you tried to build vbox on a clean env?04:55
sepenyep. on a fresh install04:55
cptnthe problem is this:04:55
sepenbut I can do it onemore time04:55
cptnsets QT3DIR04:55
cptnuses QTDIR04:55
cptnI would guess that this is where the /usr/share/qt3 path comes from...04:56
sepenwell I can't understand how I have 3 boxes with vbox installed without any kind of errors04:57
sepenill try on a fresh install newly04:57
cptnit's strange indeed05:01
sepencptn, ok I see     1241   for q in $QT3DIR; do ....05:01
cptnit's quite complicated...05:02
sependid you read that
cptnthe whole configure, I mean :-)05:02
sepenthat confused me05:02
sepenbut I like you guys, thanks!05:03
sepenIll try to find a solution05:04
cptnalso, maybe 2.0.2 is different than the trunk version05:04
sepenwell not as different as the 1.5.x and 1.6.x series05:04
sepenafter sun adquired innotek a lot of changes was made05:05
sepen*was made?05:05
cptnwere made05:06
sepenok, thanks05:07
*** kieselsteini has joined #crux05:08
cptnwell, =======> Building '/usr/ports/pkg/virtualbox#2.0.2-1.pkg.tar.gz' succeeded05:08
cptnwith both qt3 and qt405:09
cptnQTDIR is not set05:09
cptnso I guess configure can do the right thing :-)05:10

dinxin vm or something05:51
dinxthats if it even builds..05:51

Romstersepen, mtools requires -j1 at install time. else it fails saying file already exists.09:42
sepenit works forme09:45
sepenwell on uniprocessor boxes09:45
sepensomeone with the same results?09:45
sepenRotwang, I have a fix for vbox09:48
sepenRotwang, could you try it?
sepenRomster, could you paste me the error message?09:50
Rotwangsepen: I confirm Romsters error09:51
sepenok, so Ill add the line09:52
sepenthanks Romster and Rotwang09:52
Rotwangsepen: im going to check your fix in couple of minutes09:54
sepenok and thanks09:54
Rotwangsepen: btw, you dont need to do this much ;p09:54
Rotwang[ "$(pkginfo -i | grep '^qt3 ')" ]09:55
Rotwangpkginfo -i | grep '^qt3 &>/dev/null09:56
Rotwangin the if statement09:56
sepenRotwang, its only a beta test09:56
sepenif it does the trick I'll clean up the code09:56
Romstersepen, k09:56
cruxbot[contrib.git]: mtools: Added required -j1 (thanks Romster)09:57
sepenRomster, well it could be patched too09:59
Romsterah you bet me to it.09:59
Romstertrue but that's quicker and it's only the install stage.09:59
Romsternot gonna gain much in speed.09:59
Romsterup upstream should have it fixed10:00
sepenthat release has about 1 year10:00
Rotwangsepen: xerces link seems to be broken10:00
sepenI add a note to my todo, Ill try to contact with the mtools authors10:00
RomsterRotwang, no need to retest i tired with -j1 and it works.10:00
Romstersepen, cool :)10:01
sepennew xerces-c version -> 3.0.010:02
sepenwell more thing todo10:02
sepenguy you give a lot of work today10:02
sepenxDDDD thats nice!10:02
* Rotwang is looking for a job10:04
sepenRotwang, xDDD10:04
Rotwangfull time job10:04
sepenRotwang, please could you confirm the vbox patch?10:05
sepenhere builds without qt3 installed10:05
Rotwangsepen: im testing it atm10:05
Rotwangexport QTDIR works in my case only10:07
Rotwangbut if it happens on my box only i guess i 've got something missconfigured10:15
sepensomething like env QTDIR=/usr/share/qt4 fakeroot pkgmk ?10:17
sepenso weird10:18
sepenI think the problem was that I need to specified explicitely the --disable-qt3 or --disable-qt4 if not found10:18
thrice`so it works with only one or the other ?10:19
sepenafter that I test from various scenarios on a fresh install, so Im able of build with qt3 only and with qt4 only too10:19
sepenthrice`, yeah10:19
sepenthrice`, thats as appears in the slackbuild10:19
thrice`cool! :)10:20
sepenIll try the same when arrive to my home10:20
sepenplease tell me results if someone experienced some problems10:20
sepenfinally Ill commit the patch at night if all seems fine10:21

*** jmvr has joined #crux13:31
* spaceninja just saw something in the handbook13:33
RedShiftif you compile in the right modules I don't think so13:36
*** cruxbot has quit IRC13:38
spaceninjaI don't know how to make the iso bootable on a usb stick, I tried to dd the crux iso on both sda and sda1, none of them works13:38
spaceninjaI also tried to install lilo on MBR13:39
Romsteruse syslinux13:39
spaceninjaok13:40 s down13:40
sepenspaceninja, I've some info about that
sepenbut isn't a really crux 2.5 release :)13:41
sepenjust an image without ports inside them13:41
spaceninjacool, thanks alot!13:43
spaceninjaNow I can finally put crux on my eeepc13:43
sepenspaceninja, all you need is another usb mounted hardrive (or nfs) with the compiled packages you want to install13:44
*** DarkNekros has quit IRC13:50
*** DarkNekros has joined #crux13:52
sepenspaceninja, it boots fine for you?13:53
spaceninjaI'm currently downloading it13:54
sepenit tested on another eeepc90013:54
spaceninjaI got the 90013:54
rehabdollmm, a source-based distro on a eeepc :D13:54
jaegeryeah... I thought about putting crux on my 901 but decided it wasn't worth it13:55
sepenspaceninja, use at your own risk, is still in beta status and the setup scripts are not the official ones13:55
sepenjaeger, my image works fine on eeepc's13:56
treachwell, aren't we all using crux at our own peril already? :>13:56
sepenbut I repeat spaceninja, is still incomplete13:56
sepentreach, yeah, but mine isn't official13:56
treachI know. ;)13:56
sepenis just my own hack or plained ideas, and some part are still in development status13:56
jaegersepen: I'm sure it does but a source-based distro on SSD seems a bad idea to me13:57
thrice`sepen: i'll be happy to test when it gets ability to install packages :)13:57
treachjaeger: how about jdolan's old pkg-get stuff?13:57
sepenjaeger, just use a unionfs with another writable filesystem (usb, etc.)13:57
sepentreach, jdolan, or sip?13:57
treachmmh? sip had something like that?13:57
sepentreach, for what I known pkg-get downloads all packages before install something13:58
treachyes, that was kind of the point13:58
thrice`jaeger put on a net-setup onto the iso.  that could do it :)13:58
sepenIm use the openbsd style for installing packages using a PKG_PATH13:58
jaegerI've got a weird unionfs/squashfs setup on my 901 already13:58
sepenthrice`, yeah, sure, I'm also using jaeger's mirror for pre-compiled packages13:58
jaegerthe net-setup, incidentally, hasn't been updated in some time13:59
thrice`sadly :)  I loved that feature13:59
sepenthrice`, I performed an installation at office on some boxes using the jaeger mirror13:59
spaceninjajaeger: which os do you got on your 901?13:59
jaegerubuntu-eee at the moment13:59
sepenhmm better than xandros ?14:00
jaegerin my opinion, yes14:00
sepenhmm I think that a crux-based one would be better14:00
sepenall we need are some precompiled-optimized packages14:01
spaceninjabut it can't be that bad to compile stuff on a 900, I only need to install xfce and xorg one time14:02
spaceninjaor blackbox with pypanel14:02
jaegercompiling isn't the issue14:02
jaegerit's write life on the SSD14:03
jaegermy 901 has a 1.6GHz atom, it's plenty fast14:03
jaegerI just don't want to write too much to disk... I would use a ramdisk or usb drive or something14:03
sepen<jaeger> it's write life on the SSD14:03
jaegerbut I haven't really seen the point yet14:03
sepenjaeger, how about using unionfs14:03
sepenthe ssd as readonly branch14:03
sepenand /var mounted in another place - branch14:04
sepenthere are a lot of scenarios with unionfs14:04
jaegerthat's entirely doable, I've already got a couple partitions set up that way on my ubuntu-eee install... my point is I haven't seen a reason to switch to crux over it yet14:04
thrice`anyone used pm-utils recently on crux ?14:05
Romsterubuntu.... urge to kill.14:05
thrice`sepen: so, you used your usb image to install a 2.3 set of packages?14:05
thrice`oh wait, jaeger has 2.4 for the updated iso ?14:05
sepenthrice`, 2.4 from jaeger14:05
treachRomster: how come? it's not old enough to have molested you as a child.. ;)14:06
sepenthrice`, I suggest you to learn how my iso works if you are planning to use it14:06
thrice`sepen: ok, sorry (still at work and can't browse it yet)14:07
sepenplease. I've still some thing todo
spaceninjasepen: what did you do with the kernel, downloaded it from the official website?14:07
sepenthe kernel process I think is the same that the official iso14:07
sepenyou can compare both Makefiles14:07
thrice`a live / usb install image would be very nice for 2.5 :)14:08
sepeni.e: I'm adding ATM the *fsprogs: reiserfsprogs and e2fsprogs14:08
sepenso you can't format a hardrive ATM14:09
sepenthrice`, sure14:09
thrice`sepen: very nice work :)  looks great14:10

*** jtnl has joined #crux14:49
Rotwangoh, k14:51
Rotwangbut those [ $() ] are ugly, all it does is that oit tests the output14:52

Rotwangbut () is encouraged14:55
Romsterfrom what i read about shell programming.14:55
sepencptn, oooh yeah men! :()14:56
Romster`` predates $() and $(0 is preferred/encouraged14:56
Romsteri got told off using that check in Pkgfiles so no one else should use that method and should add it to or something.14:57
Rotwangthere is little difference between `` and $() though14:59
Rotwang  <- from man page14:59
*** jtnl has quit IRC14:59
