fraghi all03:50
f1yHi there.03:50
fragsame problem still... Xorg is a mess after a sysup03:51
fragwith vesa it blocks03:51
fragwth intel it doesn t find screens03:51
fraghow to purge everything?03:51
f1yYeah, but this is rather Xorg release problem I guess, friends of other distros are whining too.03:52
fragi mean remove *all* xorg and reinstall rebuilt it again?03:52
fragfly and now how to solve this?03:52
f1yDunno... yet.03:52
fragso i canno work until Xorg decides to fix this?03:53
fragwhat about installing xfree86?03:53
fragand how to remove the damn xorg for now?03:54
*** prologic has joined #crux03:55
nipuLa quick (and dangerous) way would be 'prt-get remove `prt-get quickdep xorg`'03:55
fragmay i use prt to remove everything or just do it by hand?03:55
fragnipuL: ok why dangerous?03:55
nipuLfor example such a command would probably remvoe libxml203:56
fragi see03:56
sepenfrag, but where is the problem with xorG?03:56
f1yI suggest using it with --test first.03:56
fragsepen: after a sysup is a mess03:56
fragcannot find drivers and devices03:57
sepenfrom what version to what version of what package?03:57
nipuLperhaps something like, for port in `prt-get quickdep xorg`; do if [ -z "`prt-get dependent $port`" ]; then prt-get remove $port; fi; done03:57
sepenfrag, did you know about the EmptyInput issue?03:57
nipuLbut that might not work either03:59
nipuLif you could reverse the quickdep order it probably would03:59
*** frag_ has joined #crux04:07
frag_nipuL: with that command xorg is still alive04:09
f1yHow to upgrade CRUX to 2.5-rc1? Changing 2.4 to 2.5 in /etc/ports would be enough?04:11
frag_what's the alternative to xorg... i mean is xfree installable by prt-get?04:12
*** frag has quit IRC04:14
*** frag_ is now known as frag04:14
fragreinstalling xorg would not solve the problem?04:15
frag...core, opt and xorg are the three primary collections of CRUX. They're maintained by the CRUX development team which ensures that they're consistent and working well together....04:16
nipuLf1y: download the iso, it should include an upgrade option04:19
nipuLyou can upgrade via ports but it can be more difficult04:19
nipuLas a CRUX release generally comes with a toolchain upgrade04:20
fragcool from the iso would be easy... is that a critical upgrade?04:23
*** dinx has quit IRC04:25
*** dinx has joined #crux04:32
fragmy god nothing changed after removing and reinstalling again...04:33
fraghey i think there's more than a problem in the ports04:33
fragupgrading to 2.5 would solve the problem?04:37
fragby iso04:37
f1yI guess it has nothing to it. It is just a system update, xorg is independent from it imo.04:39
*** DarkNekros has joined #crux04:39
*** dinx has quit IRC04:42
fragfly so u're saying that i've to format everything... ?04:45
fragis that possible there are NO ways to restore a working system?04:45
fragalso from the cd04:45
fragthe 2.4 iso04:45
f1yWhy format?04:51
fragi mean it's impossible to have a working xorg... what i've to do??04:51
fragi have the 2.4 iso04:52
fragmay i use it for that?04:52
fragif yes04:52
f1yYou might try to install xorg from this cd without formatting.04:52
f1yAnd then trying to run that xorg.04:53
f1yThere are packages compiled already.04:53
fragok burning the iso wait... fly pls can support me during it?04:54
fragi really need this machine to work today04:54
f1yTry to uninstall xorg with prt-get remove `prt-get quickdep xorg`, but run this with --test at the end to see, what will be removed exactly.04:55
f1yAnd after, just mount Your cd/dvd and run a command like this:04:55
fragit will remove perl and python and libxml2 but who cares if i can reinstall them again...04:56
f1y# for i in `ls -la /mnt/dvd/crux/xorg/ | tail -215 | awk '{print $8}' | xargs`; do pkgadd -u ${i}; done04:58
f1yAnd check Your path to cd/dvd ofc (this /mnt/dvd line)04:59
f1yfrag: What graphic card do You have? I've forgotten...04:59
fragDisplay controller: Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express Integrated Graphics Controller05:02
fragfly i've probl with libncurses05:02
fragcannot exec ports or prt anympre05:02
fragorts -l05:02
frag/bin/bash: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory05:02
fragit was ports -l05:03
fragprt-get remove xorg05:03
frag/bin/sh: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory05:03
frag-- Packages where removal failed05:03
f1yOk. try to install ncurses from Your cd/dvd drive. (pkgadd /path_to_cd/core/ncurses/)05:04
f1yBut what ports want from ncurses...05:05
*** dinx has joined #crux05:06
fragok fly05:06
f1yOk, now try to install xorg from cd/dvd with that command above ^05:07
fragare u sure is correct?05:08
f1yYes, for 2.4 iso it works fine.05:08
fragpkgadd: could not determine name and/or version of 2007: Invalid package name05:09
fragfor each package05:09
fragmaybe ls -a05:10
fragwithout l flag for ls command05:10
fragisn t?05:10
f1yNo, ls -la puts packages in longlist to make sure awk gets proper column from listing.05:11
fragthis command returns me pkgadd: could not determine name and/or version of 2007: Invalid package name05:11
f1yfrag: Try to install one (nevermind which) package with pkgadd.05:12
fragit works05:12
fragpkgadd xorg-xtrans#1.0.4-1.pkg.tar.gz05:13
f1yfrag: What says "ls -la | wc -l" in Your dvd/xorg dir?05:13
fragpff so weird...05:16
fragthe problem is in this05:18
fragls -la /cdrom/crux/xorg/ | tail -215 | awk '{print $8}' | xargs05:18
fragprints a lot of 200705:18
fragprint $9 seems ok05:18
fragno is not05:19

klickHave you tried prt-get depinst xorg?05:23
fragklick: that made the mess05:23
klickI just did that the other day, worked fine.05:23
klickRemove all xorg- packages and re-run "prt-get depinst xorg". That's what I did.05:24
fragremove the whole /usr/ports/xorg ?05:25
klickNo, uninstall them.05:25
fragdone thousands of time05:25
klickprt-get listinst | grep -i '^xorg.*' | while read line; pkgrm $line; done05:26
klickprt-get depinst xorg05:26
klickShould fix it.05:26
fragbash: syntax error near unexpected token `done'05:27
klicksorry, while read line; do pkgrm....05:27
klickI forgot the "do" :)05:27
fragcannot remove non empty dirs.. is that ok?05:27
klickYour system seems to be screwed... anyways, when it's done. run the depinst command05:28
klickprt-get depinst xorg05:31
fragand now05:31
klickdepinst xorg can't possibly finish that fast? What kind of machine do you have 100THz?05:32
*** spaceninja has joined #crux05:32
fragmaybe something was already compiled and not removed05:32
fragi've a 2.66ghz05:33
klickYou're setup seems to be really fucked.05:33
fragthat is what i m saying for 3 days05:33
spaceninjaCRUX 2.5 RC1 = crux-2.5-test3.iso ?05:33
klickI got a tip from another guy about depinst.05:33
klickfrag: Rename the /usr/ports/xorg dir to something else xorg.old for instance.05:34
klickfrag: run ports -u and the re-run the two commands I gave you. To make sure it does not install something which is already compiled and borked.05:34
fragprt-get listinst | grep -i '^xorg.*' | while read line; do pkgrm $line; done this one returns that could not remove /usr/lib/X11/fonts/... cos not empty05:36
fragis that ok in any case?05:36
fragklick: going on with prt-get depinst xorg05:37
klickI would remove /usr/lib/X1105:37
klickSince it will be re-installed.05:37
fragcrossing fingers...05:40
fragdepinst should work for a while05:40
spaceninjayou might also need -use-install something05:40
spaceninjaI don't remeber what the option is, I'm currently on windows05:41
klickfrag: Now it should be compiling lots of stuff.05:43
klickWhich I assume it didn't do before.05:43
spaceninjaDoes anyone know the answer to my question? Is the crux-2.5-test3.iso the  CRUX 2.5 RC1 release?05:44
fragklick indeed05:45

*** DarkNekros has quit IRC18:00
rehabdollawesome :D18:02
pitill0but doesn't help too much18:04
rehabdolldo you have dmesg output?18:06
pitill0rehabdoll: yes I can pick it, 1 min18:07
pitill0I tried what I found related to hardware (another powersupply, changed power and data cables too), moved the HD from 1 to 4 sata ports too, I tried disabling acpi/apic, and always the same. I asked to know if someone had this problem and verified it's related to hardware (sata controller)18:11
ahmrahtcheersounds like a firmware problem to me18:12
pitill0ahmrahtcheer: yestarday I upgraded MB bios18:13
pitill0I am not sure if you mean that firmware (the HD is working fine in another MB)18:14
ahmrahtcheerif you still have one floating around, hook up an ide drive.  if it works, then i'd start suspecting the sata hdd's bios18:14
ahmrahtcheerman, you got me18:15
pitill0ahmrahtcheer: atm 2.5rc1 is on a ide disk working fine and with the sata HD near, but getting the same output when mounting18:15
ahmrahtcheerhmmm...i'm afraid i won't be of much help, since the last time i had multiple hdd's in a single computer was in the early '90s18:16
pitill0I have been playing around before asking here, this isn't directly related to CRUX, but may be someone could gave me a hint (if he had experience with this problem)18:16
ahmrahtcheerand they were mfm and scsi18:16
pitill0ahmrahtcheer: no problem, thank you btw :)18:17
ahmrahtcheersorry i couldn't help more18:17
rehabdolllooks like a hardware problem atleast. ive had similar issues with both broken drives and controllers18:18
pitill0ummmm then it's directly related to MB's sata controller (sata disk is working fine in other MB)18:19
rehabdollit wakes up at udma/33 atleast?18:19
pitill0rehabdoll: thank you for your time and answers18:19
ahmrahtcheeryeah, that sounds like a problem with the mobo's sata controller18:19
pitill0ummmm the sata HD directly doesn't wake up, nothing to do when I mount a partition18:20
pitill0it begins with that error a doesn't stop18:20
rehabdollWarning only 896MB will be used.18:21
rehabdollUse a HIGHMEM enabled kernel.18:21
pitill0ummmmm good point18:22

KMandlaGreetings, programs.20:23
KMandlaAny suggestions?20:29
KMandlaI can't seem to get any kernel to compile off 2.5 rc120:29
KMandlaOtherwise, installation goes fine.20:29
thrice`using a config from scratch ?20:29
KMandlaBoth an old one and  a pure and clean menuconfig20:30
KMandlaShould I try to set a default first?20:31
KMandlalike make defconf or whatever it is?20:31
thrice`did you use "oldconfig" with your old one?20:31
KMandlaYes, and same kernel. But copied into a new system on the same machine, I get that error.20:31
KMandlaI checked my md5sums and there aren't any disc errors. ...20:33
KMandlaDid I miss a step?20:33
thrice`i've never seen anything like it :(20:34
thrice`i think the toolchain is OK, as I've built 3 kernels so far on it without issues20:34
thrice`I was going to guess a bad config option from an older config20:35
KMandlaI'll try a few more things.20:35
KMandlaMaybe I've got a bad CD or something.20:36
KMandlaHmm. make clean works, but make defconfig gives the same error20:37
thrice`strange :|20:38
thrice`you could try to download the iso again, mount it, and update all core packages20:38
KMandlaThat's an idea.20:38
KMandlaGive me a few minutes ...20:38
thrice`mount -o loop blah.iso /mnt/tmp20:39
thrice`and something like "for i in $( pkginfo -i | cut -d ' ' -f 1 ); do pkgadd -f -u $i*pkg.tar.gz; done20:40
thrice`from core/ :)20:40
KMandlaRight. ETA on new ISO is 3.5 minutes20:42
KMandlamd5sum matches.20:44
*** f1y has quit IRC20:48
KMandlaUpdates ended without an error. Let's see what happens. ...20:49
KMandlaNope. Same error. This is weird.20:49
thrice`with a make distclean first ?20:50
KMandlamake clean20:50
KMandlaBut let me try that too20:50
