cptndoes anyone have a non-crux installation where he could test something for me?04:14
pitillocptn, elive in a VM?04:19
cptnsounds great04:19
cptnelive is debian based, right?04:19
cptnI'd just like to know if 'su' gives you an error if you type a wrong password04:20
pitillooki, I can test it04:20
pitilloin crux doesn't give it04:21

pitilloI will check it there04:21
nipuL> su04:21
nipuLsu: Sorry04:21
nipuLcptn: return code is still 1 though04:21
cptnnipuL: thanks; what distro is that?04:22
sepencptn, centos-5.1 does the same 'su: incorrect password'04:23
cptnsince the debian folks removed the "Sorry" in recent shadow versions04:23
sepencptn, also fedora404:23
cptnsepen: just 'incorrect password', not 'incorrect password for <user>'?04:23
sepen$ env LANG=C su -04:24
sepensu: incorrect password04:24
cptnthat's coming from PAM then04:24
sepen$ su -04:24
sepenand this from a openbsd box04:24
cptnYeah, I'm used to getting at least some indication04:25
cptnbut for some reason, debian removed it; it appears that as long as one is using PAM, there's a message anyway04:25
cptnbut not on CRUX :-/04:26
cruxbot[core.git/2.5]: ports: update md5sum, bump revision04:27
sepenwell I've a recently installed debian stable box04:27
*** ahmrahtcheer has joined #crux04:27
sepencptn, I could do more test on it if you want04:27
cptnno, that's great, thanks a lot04:27
sepenbut I don't using PAM on my boxes04:29
cptnnot even on the centos one?04:30
sepenmaybe as default but not ATM04:30
cptnah, interesting04:30
sepenbut I've a debian box using it04:31
sepen$ env LANG=C su -04:31
sepensu: Authentication failure04:31

*** mrmike503 has joined #crux15:29
mrmike503Hey, I'm having trouble setting up my bootloader while installing crux via cd (2.4). I did a lot of research, but I keep getting a kernel panic error while trying to mount root. Can I get some assistance, perchance?15:31
thrice`mm, could be the kernel too15:32
treachdid you compile in your fs drivers?15:32
thrice`your kernel must have support for your root file system, and SATA / IDE stuff must be included too for your hardware15:32
treachi.e, modules, "m", won't work.15:33
jaegerwhen you say "setting up my bootloader" do you mean configuring grub/lilo or is this a problem with booting after configuring it?15:34
mrmike503I set up Lilo, I'm not exactly sure if it's right, though.15:34
jaegernm, I read your question more closely the second time, heh15:35
jaegercan you paste your lilo config on or one of those?15:35
mrmike503I'm a little new to playing a bit with the kernel, so bear with me a little. Umm... sure.15:36
mrmike503Oh, also, could the fstab have to do with it partially?15:38
thrice`it's probably the kernel or your config for lilo / grub15:39
mrmike503thats how it is set up right now.15:40
jaegersda1 is your / partition?15:40
jaegerok, then it probably is a missing filesystem or controller driver in the kernel15:41
mrmike503can i compile upgradeables online even though im running on the cd?15:42
jaegernot sure what you mean by that. you can certainly get new kernel sources and patches if needed, while booted with the CD, assuming your network hardware is supported15:42
treachonce you "chroot" you don't really run on the cd.15:42
mrmike503oh, ok.15:43
thrice`you would just need resolv.conf probably before chrooting, if you can get dhcpcd to run prior :)15:43
jaegerI usually load my network module, run dhcpcd, and copy /etc/resolv.conf into the chroot before chrooting15:43
treachI've never had to copy my resolv.conf. :>15:44
treachjust load the driver, run dhcpd, chroot. done. At least IME. :>15:44
thrice`I don't see how that would work o.O15:45
treachWould I lie to you? ;)15:45
thrice`no, it's just too late in the day/week to comprehend ;)15:45
mrmike503So do you suggest doing that, or something else?15:45
treachI'd suggest you get your system working first15:45
treachthen start the updating.15:45
jaegeryou shouldn't need a newer kernel to get it working, just a bit of revisiting the config15:46
mrmike503Do you need the actual error that I got?15:46
treachmrmike503: we've gotten this question a great number of times.15:46
jaegercouldn't hurt to have it but likely more useful would be a copy of your .config file and maybe lspci output pastebinned somewhere15:46
treachI'm pretty confident it's just that you've forgotten to compile in the ext3 drivers in your kernel.15:47
treach(provided that you used ext3, that is)15:47
mrmike503I feel bad for asking, but where do i find the .config and 1spci?15:48
treachdon't edit the .config file directly15:48
treachuse "make menuconfig"15:49
jaeger.config is created when you run make menuconfig or make config15:49
jaegerin the kernel source directory15:49
treachlspci is in /core/pciutils15:50
mrmike503i went with the default settings... do you guys suggest anything to be changed?15:50
treachmatch up with your actual hardware.15:50
mrmike503I think that's the first problem... oops.15:51
thrice`or at *least* use the cd-rom's .config :)  the default surely won't work15:52
thrice`hm, or is the cdrom copied to the source?15:52
treachjust match up with that you actually have. using the cdrom config file is a waste of time, IMO.15:53
mrmike503I'm not sure, I'll i remember is running k3b and doing a .iso burning to the cd... Notsure.15:53
treachI'm not even sure it would boot.15:53
mrmike503Ok, I'll report when I'm done or if I got any questions.15:53
treachgood luck then15:53
mrmike503Thank you. :)15:53
jaegerthe cdrom's config is fairly inclusive but most of it is built as modules, so not useful without modification in this case15:54
treachyeah, thats what I meant15:55
*** acrux_ has joined #crux15:55

mrmike503In the config, whats the difference between built-in and module?16:02

mrmike503I don't get it... I went through everything, but I still have that stupid kernel panic. Did I miss checking off something?16:29
treachhow would we know?16:30
treachdid you make a new kernel, copy it to the right locations and re-run lilo?16:30
mrmike503I didn't re-run lilo.16:31
mrmike503Thing is, Ext3 was already marked and everything.16:31
treachas "*"?16:31
treachweird. :/16:32
treachcontroller drivers too?16:32
mrmike503I believe so.16:33
treachfaith doesn't work on computers. :>16:33
mrmike503Any other ideas, or are you certain that it's something not set up right in the .config? I'm gonna go through it all again to see if I missed something.16:47
treachwell, usually it's missing fs/controller drivers. other than that, I can only imagine a misconfigured lilo.16:48
treachunless you're doing something *very* wrong, that is.16:48
mrmike503Maybe fstab? I wanna guess I messed up there somehow...16:49
aonwell, doesn't the root mount happen before reading fstab16:50
treachhmm.. first / is mounted ro, and then it's remounted rw when fstab is available? Or do I remember incorrectly?16:51
aonso if the first moutn fails, it probably isn't fstab16:52
treachI guess you're right16:52
treachmrmike503: for now my best suggestion is that you go back to the handbook, and make sure you didn't miss *anything*.16:54

jaegerit's a text file, no need to do anything special with it. look for .config in your kernel source dir17:44
mrmike503will do... silly config is taking a long time.17:45
mrmike503how am i to get this config file onto this computer?17:48
