tilmanhint: using the clock in irssi to check whether your pc's time is correct is a dumb idea if you run irssi on a remote system08:05

estersXorg is killing me :(13:04
klickHmm, give me alot of information in /proc/acpi (most importantly battery). does not give nearly as much (most importantly battery missing). Backlight up/down doesn't in either. Same .config used for both.13:04
estersklick: /proc/acpi is depreaced13:05
estersLook into /sys13:06
klickI will, just gonna reboot into .27.713:06
klickAlso, I made a quick test kernel the other day. When I booted that one Fn-F6 and Fn-F7 worked fine to adjust the backlight, these do not work now. Unfortunately I don't have the .config so I cannot compare them.13:07
klickI have included everything under ACPI...13:07

estersI'm pretty pissed13:14
Rotwangesters: why? :{13:14
estersI was trying to get Xorg running13:15
esterstilman told me what command should I use because of my problem13:15
estersIt didn't work13:15
estersThen I checked kmandla's blog13:15
thrice`what's tyour problem ?13:15
estersX starts, but none of the input devices work13:16
estersKeyboard, name it13:16
thrice`ok, that's an easy fix13:16
estersOne line in xorg.conf13:16
estersBut still it doesn't work13:16
estersWell it works partially :<13:16
thrice`Option   "AllowEmptyInput"   "false"13:16
thrice`add it under "Section  "ServerLayout"13:17
estersAnd the second issue would be that kernel ignores the vga=xxx option13:17
Rotwangthrice`: told him the same yesterday13:17
Rotwangesters: you didnt compile framebuffer support?13:18
thrice`esters: otherwise, pastebin your xorg.conf so we can take a look :)13:18
thrice`the second issue is with your kernel13:18
estersI'll paste my .config13:18
estersOh and I think what is the problem about xorg13:20
estersKeyboard works fine13:20

*** pomysl has joined #crux13:22
jaegerit's technically meant for the "ServerFlags" section13:22
jaegerbut it works in both13:22
jaegerI have an odd issue in 2.5 where both evilwm and openbox will run but don't seem to decorate windows13:24
jaegerand I can't move them with the mouse13:24
klickDoes ACPI require some tedious configurations to work nice? I have it and I chosen "powersaving" where ever I could find it... yet my laptop runs hotter under Linux in just a few minutes. In XP it can be on for hours without getting this warm.13:24
jaegercan focus them with alt-tab, though13:24
jaegeropenbox will decorate some of them13:24
jaegerstill can't move13:24
*** sqiurid has quit IRC13:25
*** DaViruz has joined #crux13:25
thrice`jaeger: very strange.  new configs too ?13:25
*** esters has quit IRC13:33

estersNow I'm a happy crux user :)14:53
estersAnd it's blazing fast :)15:00
estersCompared to Arch15:00
ahmrahtcheerin my experience, CRUX is not only faster than Arch, it's also faster than damnsmalllinux and puppy linux, when they're running from ramdisk15:02
estersRly ?15:03
estersI've never tried nor puppy nor dsl15:03
estersBut I use Arch daily15:03
ahmrahtcheerCRUX is the fastest running OS i've tried15:04
estersThat's nice :)15:07
ahmrahtcheeri'm going to be installing it on this laptop as soon as my new dvd/cdburner arrives15:08
ahmrahtcheerand my new motherboard, too.15:09
estersHmm, I guess multiple repositories is a bad thing15:10
estersBecause there are many duplicates15:10
tilmandamn, does anyone have treach's repository httpup file?15:12
thrice`mm, rebuild xorg with hal :)15:14
*** mrks has quit IRC15:14
estersI guess the majority here runs software from both official + unofficial repositories15:15
estersWithout issues ?15:15
tilmanwithout major issues ;D15:16
Rotwangwatch out for yhafris repo15:17
estersThat is a no no for me :)15:17
*** mike_k has quit IRC15:19
estersIs it because of the lack of manpower ?15:20
*** dmoerner has joined #crux15:24
thrice`hm, xorg locked up twice, but starts OK now :)15:34
*** sqiurid has quit IRC15:34
estersThat's good15:35
tilmanlocked up how?15:36
thrice`dropped down to a black screen on tty4 (where xorg was) and would not accept input15:36
estersJust like I had15:37
thrice`but, it seems OK after a reboot.  I removed input-{keyboard,mouse} too :)15:37

estersWell not much, but than can be fixed15:51
estersSimilar to slack :)15:51
