sepentilman, cruxbot reports that when use git cherry-pick04:27
sepens/when use/if I use/04:28
sepenits not the common case, but just a curiousity04:28
tilmanwhy would you use cherry-pick with the crux repos? O_O04:34
fraghi everybody04:34
fragi'm a bit in trouble to install xfce04:34
fragadded prtdir in prt-get.conf04:35
fragand made a ports 'u04:35
fragports -u04:35
fragbut when i try to prt-get install xfce04:35
fragit returns that cannot access to ports xfce04:35
fragthe package xfce could not be found04:37
sepenxfce4 maybe?04:49
sepenI suggest you to $ prt-get readme xfce4 before install it04:50
sepentilman, I forgot to branch 2.4 from the origin, so I commited to master and then cherry-pick to 2.4 to solve it04:51
tilmanwhat the fuck04:51
*** rxi has joined #crux04:55
sepenpff no idea how revert this changeset04:55
sepentilman, maybe you know a trick for reset the HEAD?04:58
sepen$ cat .git/refs/heads/master04:59
sepenit shoulds point when master was created right?05:01
nipuLcan we start using master as the development branch already05:01
*** frag has quit IRC05:01
nipuLthat or start breaking fingers05:01
* tilman votes for breaking fingers05:01
sepenI can't see any problem on lost my last changesets and redo it05:02
tilmansepen: i'll fix it later05:03
sepenjust we lost 2 commits atm05:03
sepentilman, sorry05:03
sepenbut why people has commit-to-master access? its a common feature?05:04
sepentilman, thats the correct head -> d5d6fa111bdc11329470de5f304fce25ef0d1c8c05:13

tilmanwhat i really don't understand06:05
jorngthank you Rotwang06:05
tilmanwhy the fuck do you people push crap even though i always tell you to run 'git log' before pushign?06:05
sepentilman, please sorry the inconveniences omt06:05
jorngRotwang: is it possible to view the packages of 2.4?06:06
sepentilman, I run git log, but I didn't have any branch06:06
Rotwangjorng: core/opt/xorg/contrib/xfce packages are usually up to date06:06
sepenso my problem was not branch 2.4 origin/2.406:06
jornghow about openbox?06:06
tilmanopenbox is in opt06:07
tilmansepen: yes, it's okay06:07
jorngtilman: but is it updated from the last general release?06:07

*** sepen has quit IRC06:08
jorngwhen i use 2.4, i can update to 2.5 easily when it comes out?06:08
jorngoke, one more question, dont know if you guys can answer06:10
jorngwhat is the diffrents between gentoo and crux?06:10
tilmancrux doesn't hold your hand as much as gentoo does06:11
tilmansimpler ports system06:11
tilmansimpler everything06:11
jorngcan i mention prt-get is similair to emergE?06:11
tilmanyes, i guess06:13
tilmani haven't used gentoo myself, so i'm not the best person to talk to :D06:13
jornghehe oke, but thanks06:14
Rotwangjorng: prt-get is a frontend to pkgutils, please dont compare those two distros as they are completely different06:14
tilmanRotwang: that's a great answer, i'll remember that one :D06:14
jorngsorry sorry =)06:14
jorngbut for depedencies it is a good tool i gues06:15
jornginstalling all packages by hand must be very time consuming06:16
tilmanyes, usually you just prt-get06:16
jornghmm oke, put prt-get will install a package from source06:17
jorngis there a tool for deps with the binary packages?06:18
Rotwangbinary packages?06:19
Rotwangthere is something06:19
Rotwangpkg-get iirc06:19
jorngahy oke06:19
jorngbut you guys do a install and right after that use prt-get?06:20
Rotwangbut we dont have binary packages06:20
*** vaddi_ has joined #crux06:20
Rotwangjorng: well, yes, why not?06:20
jorngsection 4.1 of the handbook is for binary's i thought06:21
Rotwangjorng: you build package via pkgmk and then install it via pkgadd06:22

fragis there someone?10:51
Rotwangyes, i think so10:52
fraghi Rotwang10:52
fragsorry but i think to have followed all written in the handbook10:52
fragand trying to install xfce10:52
fragso added in prt-get.conf the correct port10:53
fragand typed a  ports -u10:53
Rotwangyou need to add whole repository10:53
fragwhole repository?10:53
Rotwangyes :\10:53
fragwhat do u mean?10:53
Rotwangdl the xfce.rsync file10:53
fragand where i'll find it?10:54
fragoh gosh... so for each stuff i've to install i've to copy the rep in /usr/ports?10:55
Rotwangit depends what you want to do10:55 ok this one10:56
fragi've to add this where?10:56
Rotwangyou add the xfce.rsync to /etc/ports10:57
fragok and inside the rsync file there would be that address10:58
fragis that correct?10:59
Rotwang# cd /etc/ports && wget && ports -u11:00
pitill0remember to check prt-get.conf before -u11:01
fragprtdir ...xfce11:01
fragisn't it?11:01
Rotwangsed '/contrib/aprtdir /usr/ports/xfce' /etc/prt-get.conf11:01
Rotwangsed -i*11:01
pitill0frag, good explanation11:04
Rotwangi must say from /gnome/kde/xfce repos11:05
Rotwangxfce is most reliable imo11:05
fragit updates the collection xfce11:12
fragbut still cannot install11:12
fragno idea...11:12
fragthe package xfce4 could not be found11:12
thrice` /usr/ports/xfce  is in prt-get.conf ?11:12
fragof course11:13
thrice`and you *have* a /usr/ports/xfce ?11:13
fragu mean the dir?11:13
fragno.... doesn't it create automatically?11:13
thrice`ports -u xfce11:14
thrice`prt-get uses /usr/ports/ to install packages11:14
fragthe collection is created but nothing in the xfce dir11:14
thrice`do you have an /etc/ports/xfce.rsync ?11:15
fragin usr-ports11:15
thrice` xfce.rsync needs to be in /etc/ports11:16
fragit is11:16
fragports -u xfce terminates correctly with finished successfully11:16
thrice`then /usr/ports/xfce/ contains more stuff?11:17
fragjust nothing11:17
fragif i didn't create the dir neither that11:17
pitill0frag, can you check xfce.rsync file contents11:17
fragit's the same from the website11:18
thrice`it needs to have 3 lines11:22
pitill0cat /etc/ports/xfce.rsync|wgetpaste11:25
fragit's exactly the 3 lines11:25
pitill0and the prt-get.conf file is well too?11:27
fragi think so11:27
fragi added prtdir11:27
fragthat's it11:27
Rotwangpitill0: its not prt-gets fault if ports does not fetch xfce tree11:27
thrice`should be "prtdir   /usr/ports/xfce"11:27
Rotwangfrag: run /etc/ports/drivers/rsync /etc/ports/xfce.rsync11:28
pitill0I dont know, sorry11:28
Rotwangfrag: maybe your net configuration restricst you from rsync?11:29
fragit returns finished successfully11:29
fragi really have no idea....11:30
thrice`no, because he has core and opt OK11:30
Rotwangah yes11:30

Rotwangto avoid such situations in the future13:56
tilmanhe committed to the master branch13:56
tilmanand then cherry-picked the commit to the 2.4 branch13:56
mike_ktilman: I've also got "error: failed to push some refs to 'crux:/home/crux/scm/ports/contrib.git'" on the last commit13:56
mike_kI am afraid to ask... should I just do a regular git fetch, chekout, rebase now?13:57
