Ovim-ObscurumHello everyone.07:51
Ovim-ObscurumDoes anybody of you know, in which package pccardmgr is included?07:51
Ovim-ObscurumI installed CRUX 2.4 on my THinkpad 760 and now I'm missing that tool to configure my ethernet card07:51
nipuLprt-get fsearch pccardmgr07:51
Ovim-ObscurumGot no internet on that machine ;)07:51
Ovim-ObscurumBecause of missing that tool07:52
Ovim-ObscurumI guess its included in pcmciautils07:52
Ovim-ObscurumBut why is that package missing in the actual CRUX?07:52
thrice`c'mon... no guesses?07:53
Ovim-ObscurumWhat do you mean, thrice` ? :)07:53
nipuLbecause CRUX is a "modern" distro07:53
nipuL"modern" noteboks have onboard NICs07:54
Ovim-ObscurumSo I'm installing the pcmciautils from CRUX 2.2 ;)07:54
Ovim-ObscurumShould work.07:54
*** rxi1 has left #crux07:57
roliveiraOvim-Obscurum: Pentium MMX - 166 MHz + 32MB ram? Cool!07:58
Ovim-ObscurumNo, roliveira :D07:59
Ovim-ObscurumPentium 90 Mhz and 24 MB RAM07:59
Ovim-ObscurumIt runs good with CRUX, had CRUX 2.2 i586 on it with X. :)07:59
Ovim-ObscurumNow I upgraded to CRUX 2.407:59
Ovim-ObscurumI'm using it for surfing and chatting.08:00
roliveira24MB is enough for that?08:00
RedShiftyou mean peddling and "damn a phone converstation is faster than this"?08:00
Ovim-Obscurumlol RedShift08:00
Ovim-Obscurumroliveira: It works, yeah.08:00
Ovim-ObscurumI'm only using xterm and w3m links, irssi and finch, but it works. ;)08:01
Ovim-ObscurumIt was much of work, it's weird, that that thing works with an modern linux distro :D08:01
RedShiftyeah its pretty awesome what you can still do with old machines08:03
Ovim-ObscurumThats it, yeah. I even got dual boot on that machine.08:03
roliveiraLenovo/IBM should buy that machine for their museum08:03
Ovim-ObscurumWindows 95B for powerpoint and CRUX08:03
Ovim-ObscurumLOL roliveira08:03
RedShiftpowerpoint works fine using wine08:04
roliveiraI would send an email to them proposing it08:04
RedShiftbut you'll probably want to compile wine on another machine...08:04
Ovim-ObscurumRedShift: But not on 90 Mhz, even the original windows is quite slow08:04
roliveirathey should give you a new one in return08:04
Ovim-Obscurumroliveira: Haha, nice idea. Maybe I will do that.08:04
RedShiftI have a 500 mhz machine to test out stuff08:05
RedShiftbut 90 & 24 mb of RAM... damn08:05
RedShiftI've worked on such machines before, they were running NT408:05
roliveiraa recently heard about a guy that had a mercedes taxi with more then 1 Million Km, Mercedes heard about it and kept it giving him a new one!08:05
roliveiratrue story!!08:05
RedShiftpeople are complaining their computers are slow now, they had no idea back then...08:06
Ovim-ObscurumI got that machine for 10 euros and thought "Hey, what shall I do with it? RUn windows on it mainly? No.."08:06
Ovim-Obscurumhaha roliveira :D08:06
latitude_they forgot08:06
RedShifttoo bad those old cars cost a fortune to keep driving them08:06
RedShiftmy car uses like 8 to 14 liters per 100 km :(08:07
Ovim-ObscurumSo, the Thinkpad runs in the internet now :D08:07
Ovim-ObscurumWhat car do you have, RedShift ?08:07
RedShiftbmw 318i from 1999 IIRC08:07
RedShiftor was it 200108:07
RedShiftI don't remember I'd have to check08:07
RedShiftI love the car but compared to current car it's has very low milage...08:08
Ovim-ObscurumBMW is quite nice :D08:08
Ovim-ObscurumI got a VW GOlf II08:09
RedShiftbest car I've ever had, it'll be a pain to sell it...08:09

RedShifttoo bad its not a 686 machine08:22
Ovim-ObscurumYeah, or a 760 and not a 760.08:23
roliveirait bet the price was >4000€ at the time08:23
RedShiftOvim-Obscurum: no I mean the architecture08:23
Ovim-ObscurumThe 760 has 133 Mhz. :D08:23
RedShiftthe pentium is 586 class08:23
Ovim-ObscurumRedShift: I meant the architecture, too :D08:23
Ovim-Obscurumi586 is really bad for compiling.08:23
Ovim-Obscurumi686 is okay :D08:23
RedShiftOvim-Obscurum: I was confused by "[14:23] <Ovim-Obscurum> Yeah, or a 760 and not a 760."08:24
Ovim-ObscurumAh, okay. My bad english :P08:25
Ovim-ObscurumFirst, when I bought that notebook I was a bit sad, because I would prefered a IBM 600X, but when I gut linux running on it, I loved it. :)08:25

Ovim-ObscurumI bought a T42 on eBay last week08:35
ahmrahtcheerthat's a P4, right?08:35
Ovim-Obscurumjaeger: Nice! :D08:35

Ovim-ObscurumIt costed 199 EUR, that 250 $08:36
*** fetid has quit IRC08:36
ahmrahtcheeri paid $81 for mine08:36
Ovim-ObscurumThats a good price :)08:36
ahmrahtcheerit's mostly going to be an internet surfing, xchatting computer, but i'll play around with which (non M$) operating system i want to put on it.08:38
Ovim-ObscurumI use my T42 for school and home, programming, web developing. Works good.08:38
Ovim-ObscurumEven apache2 and mysql runs quickly on that machine. :)08:39

Ovim-ObscurumMe too. Intel E6600, 2 GB RAM, 320 GB SATA and 640 MB of graphics ;)08:41
ahmrahtcheeri don't play games, so i opted out of the high dollar graphics08:43
ahmrahtcheerand i'm slowly assembling it, a new part every month or so08:44
Ovim-ObscurumMe, too - I play a few hours per year. Maybe 10, or 20. Not more.08:44
