pitill0giovanni: read the handbook carefully, and take a look to the introduction in the official webpage, may be CRUX isn't a good distro for you10:13

kmandlaSo, I missed a step somewhere, and all my X desktops are locking up on me.17:29
kmandlaIs there some new package or something between the default 2.4 install and a fresh system upgrade that keeps this from happening?17:29
* kmandla scratches head, trying to remember.17:30
thrice`are you sure it's locked up?17:30
thrice`xorg-server has a new "feature" that disables mouse and keyboard by default17:30
kmandlaI don't know if that was a joke or not, but I'm giggling. ... Disabling the "feature" requires ... ?17:31
thrice`:>  moment17:32
thrice`try setting "AllowEmptyInput"    "false"   in the server section of xorg.conf17:32
thrice`  is the mail from tilman17:33
kmandlaAh, thank you very much.17:34
kmandlaI was concerned that I was missing a package somewhere between the 2.4 and the current xorg versions.17:34
kmandlaThat might be the issue.17:34
kmandlaI'll give it a try.17:34
thrice`you can check with "prt-get depends xorg"  and see if anything is missing17:34
thrice`odds are it would have failed to build :)17:34
kmandlaI thought so, but will prt-get install a new dependency in a sysup? I was under the impression prt-get only refreshed installed packages, not brought in new ones. I might be wrong though.17:38
thrice`you are correct - in it's current form, it won't pull in new dependnecies (though that might be being worked on)17:39
thrice`I think it would be a neat feature, personally :)17:39
treachI don't think it'll ever do that.17:39
thrice`why not?  a simple on/off flag ?17:40
thrice`--install-missing-crap  or so17:40
treachFrom what I've seen the talk has been about telling about new deps, not pulling them in.17:40
treachsince you might have intentionally left crap out17:40
kmandlaprt-get quickdeps xorg | xargs prt-get update -fr ... maybe?17:40
treachkmandla: that's one way.17:41
treachnot necessarily a good one, but a way no less. :>17:42
kmandlaMy solutions are usually the worst possible. :)17:42

treachmeh, plasma crashma. :/17:48
thrice`still on kde4? :(17:49
treachit doesn't like the nvidia drivers. :/17:49
treachor maybe I should say it the other way around.17:50
*** lennart has quit IRC17:53
thrice`i tried kde4 in virtualbox, and wasn't too impressed17:54
treachit depends on what you're using. opensuse's 4.1.3 is far ahead of the pack.17:54
thrice`that's what I tried17:55
treachwell, since you ran it in a vm it's not too surprising it didn't work too well, right. :>17:55
thrice`plus, rpm sucks :)17:56
treachsince AFAIK, you don't get any gpu acceleration at all in that case, and that's kind of essential. >17:56
treachI have to admit though what impresses me the most is the rate of improvement. 4.0 was... 6 months ago? And it was about as bad as gnome 2.0. Now we're somwhere in the range of 2.10 or so, and I have high expectations for 4.2.17:59
thrice`well, port it to crux and drop suse already :)18:00
treachthat said, I'm still not sure I need all that jazz, so I'm thinking of reverting to wmaker or something like that. :D18:00
* ahmrahtcheer <3 windowmaker18:01
treachthrice`: that's such a pain when those guys already have done all the tedious work :p18:01

treachsepen got too many noodles? :>19:11
kmandlaThe Openbox port tries to install; as far as I can tell that hasn't been released yet and the download always fails. Unless there's another point I'm missing (there are always many), I thought I should put a teeny bug report up for that.19:13
thrice`kmandla: yeah; there was a on their server for awhile, and it got removed yesterday or today :)  must have changed their imind19:14
*** RyoS has quit IRC19:15
kmandlathrice`: That's fine. I can manually edit the port, or use --ignore=openbox19:21
