thrice`hey, 5 mins is plenty of time for flash to crash FF ;)12:24
*** sqiurid has quit IRC12:24
rehabdollyeah but i filter most crap :>12:26
rehabdollatleast it works better than swfdec/gnash12:26
rehabdollsince it doesnt eat up 100% cpu like swfdec does12:26
thrice`i couldn't get gnash or swfdec to work at all last time I tried12:27
rehabdollgnash is a pain with deps. swfdec is a bit more lightweight12:31
thrice`mm, are there any 64-bit 2.5 isos floating about?12:32
rehabdolldont think so12:33
fragproblems to install python from ports13:01
fragtrying to install python2.5.2 from sources....13:05
fragi'm installing xfce with ports and cannot go ahead cos there something wrong in the python installation... didn't check the error13:05
Rotwangso give us the error13:11
fragfootprint mismatch13:15
Rotwangoh, its terrible error ;]13:15
rehabdollthe "error" part from footprint missmatches really needs to change to a warning..13:16
tilmantilman@brimstone [~] > grep error .todo research error->warning in footprint mismatches13:16
tilmantilman@brimstone [~] >13:16
tilman    <note priority="high" time="1186268872">13:16
tilman=> Sun Aug 05 01:07:52 +0200 200713:17
Rotwangi think its somewhat similar to my patch13:18
Rotwangbut noooo13:18
tilmanyour patch?13:19
Rotwangit shows footprint mismatch but does not fail13:20
tilmanas i said, IGNORE_FOOTPRINT is insane13:20
Rotwangbut if you want to warn on footprint mismatch13:20
thrice`I like the "warn on new files, fail on missing" idea13:21
fragglad to open a discussion... but... how can i solve this?13:22
fraginstalling by hand i guess?13:22
Rotwangwhy fail on missing?13:23
tilmani'm soo close to typing /leave13:23
tilmanhow about you paste the full error (but only the error) at or wherever13:23
rehabdollfrag: "prt-get -if" ignores footprints13:24

sepenbut seamonkey is a complete suite, what do you need from it?14:03
fragmail + browser of course14:08
fragu think that having crux as main OS for development is a good idea?14:09
fragtilman: hehe ok u play for your team ;)14:10
fragi mean objectively...14:10
tilmani wouldn't use crux if it didn't like it14:10
sepenfrag, then use firefox + thunderbird from the opt collection14:10
tilmanmaintaining a linux distro just to maintain a linux distro is stupid14:11
joacimwell.. I use gentoo even tho i hate it14:11
sepenalso I ported sunbird to contrib if you need a calendar for managing ical files14:11
sepentilman, crux for me is more than a linux distro ;-)14:11
fragi really like it ... just asking...14:12
fragwell ok... i'm really new to it but sounds very interesting14:12
sepenfrag, I suggest you to read the handbook and also documents in our wiki14:13
tilmanfrag: crux is a nice system if you're developing stuff because usually you get the latest stable packages14:14
tilmanthere's no distincation between devel packages and "normal" packages14:14
tilmanno autotools hell like on debian :D14:14
sepentilman, only a minor point, nls oriented developers14:14

tilmanhow come?14:22
fragcos i wanna have everything under my "control"14:27
fragand when i download THE kernel from i just want to compile it the traditional way14:27
tilmanwell, you can do that in debian, too :D14:28
* tilman playing devil's advocate14:28
aonwhen will people learn that .rtf is at least as obnoxious as .doc14:41
sepentilman, I mean about patching autotools for usr/man instead of usr/share/man, and someone said that wouldn't be nice to have a different autotools than other distros ...15:10
