dinx /join #winehq03:59
jesse_backups. do you has it? :p04:08
Romsterchkdsk TheDriveLetter: /r04:10
Romsterbut you need to be in native windows to do that or maybe in a VM04:11
Romstertilman, or it maybe time to break out
rxitilman: if chkdsk cant fix it nothing much can from experience04:35
rxinormally format and start again04:35
*** rxi has quit IRC04:38
Romsteryou can recover most files but with the tools.04:39
Romsterbest to backup data in the first place. and how did you manage to mess the MFT up04:40

jtnlhi, all06:25
akinDoes anyone use mpd here? If so, did you make a rc.d script for it?07:03
Romsterhi just copy one of the existing ones if it has none.07:05
*** dinx has quit IRC07:08
akinmaybe it's in the share folder that gets removed in the Pkgfile build script07:09
*** sirmacik has joined #crux07:26
Romsteri guess you could start it in /etc/rc.local if you wanted to do it quickly.07:28
Romsterno idea why there is on /etc/rc.d scrip as i said you could make one, copy another file name it as that edit to suit07:28
*** pitill0 has joined #crux07:33
cptnakin: well, typically you don't want to run mpd as root, right?07:34
cptnso or is there a dedicated users for it?07:34
cptnmaybe you can just start it with your x session for example07:35
Romsternew openoffice is out seems they are holding off saying so till monday for there birthday07:42
*** thrice` has joined #crux07:45
jesse_I wonder if they've added yet another fancy layer of slowness and bloat \o/07:48
*** sirmacik has quit IRC07:50
*** Phil-san has quit IRC08:07
akincptn: guess so08:08
thrice`akin: you can make one for mpd, but be sure to change it to run from user, and root (in /etc/mpd.conf)08:20
thrice`i don't have mine anymore, but arch linux uses this approach.  I think I stole their rc.d script and mods to the Pkgfile :)08:22
akinthrice`: yes, I've seen it, looks good08:32
akinbut it doesn't have that simple cruxy feeling about it08:32
akin# If started as root, MPD will drop root privileges and run as08:35
akin# this user instead08:35
akinfrom the mpd.conf file08:35
akinso I guess I can make a rc script for it anyway08:35
akinwhat if I started mpd as the first daemon? Then I could be hearing music during bootup! hahah :D08:42

Romstermusic during bootup... never thought about that08:48
teKsome Mainboards kann play WAV(?) files during P.O.S.T.08:48
Romsteri like my booting to go fast so it don't need splash or sound08:49
Romsteri've never seen one yet teK08:49
Romsterheard about08:49
akinbut it worked, if I can start mpd as early as possible, I will have music all the way!08:49
*** cptn has quit IRC08:50
akinbecause mpd can start playing where I stopped playing last time08:50
teKI was told by a guy who uses small weights to optimize his game play for counter strike so I bet it's onlly in very expensive boards08:50
teK*putting the weights in his mouse, of course08:50
akineh, not beacuse. Oh well, have a nice day08:51
Romsterwhat is he like piclo that trains with weights and then uses a mouse with no weight for fast games?08:51
teKlol, no. I don't know much about this insanity.08:51
teKHe has a mouse bungee, too08:52
teKsome of use used duct tape to fixate the mouse cable, he had the bungee. *sigh*08:52
teKhe's not using TFT Screens due to their reaction time08:52
*** cruxbot has quit IRC08:52
Romstersounds like a nut case.08:52
teKhe's a funny guy08:53
teKlast thing I heard was that he's on university but playing CS as a pro and his girlfriend started, too08:53
Romsternext mouse will sport a pogostick or something.08:53
Rotwangfuck x|08:53
RotwangI commited as root ;D08:54

Rotwangdamn wine09:08
*** akin_ has joined #crux09:26
RomsterRotwang, what's up with wine?09:33

Rotwangit turns my screen into "mosaic"09:37
RotwangI cant really see anything09:37
Rotwangunfortunatelly I cant show you because screen made by scrot looks ok :O09:37

akin_Can anyone start mrxvt when giving it a X display name? "mrxvt -display hello" ?09:39
Romsterand wine version and video drivers. whould help09:39
RotwangRomster: I tried game legacy of kain09:40
Rotwangsome other games like spore in the past too09:40
Rotwangi use ati catalyst xorg-server 1.409:41
Rotwangkernel 2.6.2609:41
Romsterwould of thought mrxvt -display :1 would work...09:41
Rotwangwine and ati has current version from repos09:41
Romsterati isn't the best for that so that i would be suspecting.09:41
Rotwangyeah :{09:42
Romstertry without the dri module in xorg. i know it'll remove 3d acceleration but it might give clues if it's the cause or not09:42
Romsterthis is why i stuck with nvidia09:42
Rotwangk, i'll try09:44
akin_Romster: doesn't work09:44
akin_my plan is to make a mrxvt -display parent, and put other mrxvt into it, by mrxvt -into parent09:48
Romsterhmm no idea on that akin_09:49
Romsteri use sakura09:50
akin_does it have tabs?09:50
akin_cool, sakura chan09:50
Romsterit's in my private ports09:50
akin_hehe I've seen naruto :P09:50
Romstersince i started using that i don't even use xterm anymore.09:51
akin_Romster: have you tried mrxvt?09:51
Romsterdidn't liek it for some reason09:52

teKassumed ATi drivers / NV  were working..10:22

akinRomster left?10:53
akinah, you're still here, how come I'm downloading your ports so slowly?10:53
Romstershould go faster soon paused stuff. maybe my QoS doesn't set enough aside.10:56
akinI guess I don't need to sync the entire thing, I could just download the Pkgfile for sakura alone10:56
Romstermight as well get the lot since you already started10:58
Romsterbut yeah you could of just got that one.10:58
Romsteri got a few other goodies in my repo10:58
Romsterok why did it stop i got nothing using my bandwidth.10:59
akinhehe I aborted it, I figured out I only need one Pkgfile,10:59
akinbut I thought I was downloading that stuff from crux's official server11:00
jesse_This depends quite a bit on what you are downloading.11:01
jesse_User contributed ports reside just about anywhere, while the source distfiles tend to come from
Romsterno i said it's my private one crux is a port database to everyones ports.11:03
akinwow sakura is great, but I facny mrxvt's crap tabs, but I'll use sakura instead, more user friendly11:05
Romsteri quite like sakura now, i've tried a few terms and i've managed to stay to this one.11:10
Romsteri did like kterm but i don't use anything that needs kdelibs anymore.11:10
rehabdollurxvt \o/11:11
akinurxvt doesn't have any tabs11:13
akinmaybe I should get a window manager with tab support11:14
akinthen I can use urxvt11:14
rehabdollfluxbox \o/11:14
Romsterpekwm has gui grouping too.11:14
akinI don't like fluxbox, it's overdone11:16
akinblackbox is great11:16
rehabdollhow so?11:22
akinjust a feeling11:24
jesse_Fluxbox overdone? if anything, it is a more integrated package than bb.11:31
jesse_To some it might be an improvement. Each to their own.11:31
akinok I have to give it another try, brb11:33
*** akin_ has joined #crux11:37
