mike_ksepen: are you around?09:42
sepenmike_k, I moved lm_sensors to opt09:42
sepenbut I'm not really interested on i2c-tools09:43
mike_ksepen: hmm, just wanted to ask you to do take over that =(09:43
sepenbut well, if you want I could maintain it, but imho in contrib09:43
sepenmike_k, hmm09:43
mike_kI do not need it directly too09:44
mike_kbut someone might want to have it... to drop or not to drop? that is the question09:44
sepenI listed it as nicetohave in lm_sensors09:44
sepenmike_k, before drop we should keep as unmaintained some time09:45
sepenor maybe another idea could be to write a mail to contrib ML09:45
mike_kok, so I'll leave it as is. Just thought it would be more natural for lm_sensors maintainer to watch for that...09:45
sepenmike_k, well I'll adopt in this case09:46
sepenbut no idea about it :-)09:46
mike_kafterall, I keep many ports that I am not using at all... so adopt it or leave it as is. I'll see your decision in commit log =)09:47
sepennah' I'll adopt in a couple of minutes09:48
mike_kI hate when others drop some ports, so I try to avoid that =)09:48
sepenjust when my contrib working copy will be uptodate09:48
sepenmike_k, I'm running a nice log reports for repositories every night, feel free to take a look if you want, it could be useful09:49
sepenyou have some ports still dependent on x1109:49
mike_kyep, I fix those only on update09:50
cruxbot[contrib.git/2.4]: i2c-tools: new maintainer09:52
mike_klooks nice, and it reminds me to drop synaptics touchpad driver, as it is in xorg now09:52
thrice`poor 2.5 repos never get any attention :(09:53
sepenalso note that ports not listed below their maintainer name could have a maintainer-line error09:54
sepenthrice`, why?09:54
cruxbot[contrib.git/2.4]: synaptics: removed from repository. Use xorg-xf86-input-synaptics instead.09:54
jaegerhrmm... I guess I should upload that updated 2.4 iso from 11/0609:55
sepenjaeger, did you read my gl-select mail?09:55
sepenI'll glad to know your opinion about that09:56
sepenalso from all people running nvidia*/ati and gl-select stuff, of course09:57
sepenbut no one answered me09:57
thrice`sorry, intel here :)09:58
sepenthanks thrice`, ;-) you helped me too much with ati09:59
sepenbut the fact is that I can't update the new ati catalyst without modifying the gl-select tool, and I tried to rewrite some parts for being better10:00
thrice`nipuL maintains it now?10:02
sepen$ grep Maintainer /usr/ports/opt/gl-select/Pkgfile10:02
sepen# Maintainer: Lucas Hazel, lucas at die dot net dot au10:02
sepenyep, but imho I should do it10:02
thrice`sorry, forced to use windows at work :(10:02
sepenthrice`, did you have cygwin?10:03
thrice`no, i've not needed linux tools at work10:03
thrice`I don't work in IT though10:03
sepenwell I work on R&D :-)10:04
thrice`are you an engineer?10:05
sepenI'm de developer part10:05
thrice`haha, ok :)10:06
sepennot really, i'm doing R, D and also support for the appliances which we are developing10:07

* jaeger starts a fresh gnome 2.24.1 build12:43
*** tek[1] has joined #crux13:02
tek[1]seems as if my xfs partition went nuts.. I can xfs_repair it (without any complaints about the superblock but other things) and after this mount still tells me it can't read the superblock. Any suggestions?13:03
jaegerxfs_repair is supposed to rebuild the primary superblock from secondaries... maybe it can't find any valid ones?13:06
jaegerif your partition got that badly messed up I don't know if you can recover it easily13:07
tek[1]then it should complain about it, right?13:07
jaegertheoretically... but I've never seen that problem so not sure13:07
tek[1]the full error message is: I/O error in filesystem ("hdd1") meta-data dev hdd1 block 0x1314ff7f ("xfs_read_buf") error 5 buf count 51213:08
tek[1]Goolge only spit drbd-related messages out ...13:08
jaegerno idea on that one, sorry13:08

thrice`wow, lots of opt-64 work :)17:10
*** sepen has quit IRC17:23
Momerath616I'm trying to install rc but I keep getting a weird error. It says that rc is up to date but then says 'pkgadd: empty package' and 'prt-get: error while install'17:24
thrice`what was pkginfo -i | grep rc  return ?17:25
thrice`2.21-1 ?17:25
Momerath616no mention of rc17:25
thrice`strange.  did you remove it by chance?17:27
Momerath616When I try to install it it tells me that rc#2.19-1 is up to date17:27
Momerath616I just tried removing it but nothing happens17:27
Momerath616It tells me that it's not installed17:27
thrice`if you cd /usr/ports/core/rc; pkgmk -d   it should build17:27
Momerath616it just says that the package is up to date when I run that thrice'17:28
thrice`can you remove it from that directory first?17:28
Momerath616Just delete the rc directory? or the files in it?17:28
Momerath616There we go. I deleted the rc directory and updated ports. Then it installed just fine.17:30
thrice`well, that works, i meant delete the /usr/ports/core/rc/rc#2.19-1.pkg.tar.gz  package17:31
Momerath616oh hehe17:31
thrice`if the package sits in there, it tries to save you the trouble of rebuilding :)17:31
Momerath616well it only took like 1 second to build so it's not that bad17:32
thrice`sounds the the original was bad or something17:32
thrice`so you switched from ubuntu ?17:37
Momerath616I've used lots of other distros though17:37
thrice`ah, ok17:38
Momerath616This one seems to be a lot like Gentoo. But the package management isn't as retarded.17:38
Momerath616Shouldn't say as...It ISNT retarded.17:39
thrice`yeah, sorta close.  the Pkgfiles in /usr/ports are much simpler also17:39
Momerath616looooooots of compiling17:40
thrice`i've found it tends to be much better at keeping up-to-date too17:40
Momerath616Gentoo always had issues with 'blocked' packages. That got really annoying.17:40
thrice`I disslike their having a stable and unstable for every package17:42
Momerath616yeah hehe17:42
Momerath616libao is giving me problems right now. I'm getting a Footprint mismatch error17:42
thrice`did it find something extra (new), or something missing ?17:43
Momerath616The last time this happened it was with dbus and I had to run a preinstall script. There is no preinstall script for this one that I can see17:43
thrice`sometimes you'll have another package that libao wil have picked up for support for17:44
thrice`one which isn't necessarily a dependency, but could add some functionality17:44
Momerath616well I tried prt-get depinst libao but it just install libao17:44
Momerath616How do I pipe the output of prt-get to a file so I can check what's going on?17:46
Momerath616I think I see the problem. I don't have alsa installed17:50
Momerath616I feel like this is one giant puzzle17:51
*** sepen has joined #crux18:11
Momerath616ok now i'm having issues with alsa18:17
Momerath616alsa-lib gives me another one of those damn footprint mismatch errors this with smixer-python18:17
sepenand whereis the problem?18:19
Momerath616I don't know how to fix it...setting pkgmk_ignore_footprint to yes in /etc/pkgmk.conf let it build though.18:21
sepenjust doing prt-get install/update -if18:23
Momerath616Heck yeah...console mp3 playin18:26
jaegera footprint mismatch isn't necessarily a fatal error, just means that your package built slightly differently than the maintainer's version did18:36
jaegerin the case of the smixer-python stuff, perhaps the maintainer doesn't have python installed18:37
