mike_kjaeger: any idea why not to have iputils on an installation iso?03:46
juemike_k: it is03:52
jueall core ports are part of the iso03:53
mike_kjue: correct me if I am wrong:;a=blob;f=Makefile;h=e33d1ef25c66815c6458ac3b2eddbab889c17296;hb=74156957bbadafe53849e0423030c33ee5b3d89d03:59
jueah, sorry I got that wrong04:01
mike_kI can't find one on the 2.5-rc1 iso either04:01
jueno, it's only as package on the iso04:02
mike_kit't pretty annoying to have no 'ping' on the running system. of course it is possible to extract one, but...04:03
mike_kI mean during a network setup on the iso itself04:03
juewell, seems that nobody missed it so far ;-)04:03
sepenhmmm is busybox compiled with netcat support in the iso? you could use it such as network test tool04:05
sepenI mean inside the initramfs>busybox04:06
mike_kanyway it can't handle ICMP04:06
mike_kas always: I can live without it, just thought it might be useful04:07
sepenjust use another static busybox binary04:07
sepeniirc the current one is provided by jaeger long time ago04:08
juemike_k: please add that as a feature request to our bug-tracker04:14
mike_kjue: yeah04:15
sepenbusybox (in the initramfs) has ping support04:16
juesepen: thanks04:23
sepenbut iirc you need to use init=/bin/sh instead of the defaults at the boot prompt04:25
sepenif not you will mount the squashfs after the initrafs finish04:25
mike_kiso's version has one builtin, but it is not available with default installation steps04:27
*** ahmrahtcheer has joined #crux04:27
sepenimho iputils should be added to ISO_PACKAGES too04:28
mike_kit seems, busybox is just not available during setup by default, right?04:28
sepenmike_k, yep04:28
sepenafter initramfs finish, the system pivot_root to the mounted squashfs which hasn't busybox04:29
sepenline 30204:32
juebtw, ;-)04:36
jueadding iputils make sense, even though I wouldn't delay 2.5 because of that04:42

thrice`on the 2.5 note, anyone have thoughts of shipping {xfce,gnome,kde}.rsync.inactive files?07:33
thrice`mm, maybe that's too bloat-ish :>07:35
nipuLi think we're trying to avoid de specific repos, not encourage them07:35
thrice`yeah, I just thought of that point also07:36
juethrice`: i agree with nipuL, seeing all that stuff in contrib might be a much better idea07:47
nipuLbut there are some ports that can be more minimal depending on the de07:53
nipuLmy vote is for mixed source repos07:53
nipuLa few people have written drivers for this idea07:54
thrice`you mean, a contrib that could pull from gnome/kde too ?07:55
juein a first step I'd like to see which ports are really affected07:55
nipuLthrice`: a repo where ports remember what remote repo they came from07:56
thrice`yeah, I think I follow.  I prefer the segregation of a /usr/ports/xfce, myself, but I can understand why others might not07:57
juethrice`: why?07:57
thrice`I guess it's just preference, and having things a little more organized07:59
thrice`but, merging them over would solve the confusion of having some DE repos depend on contrib ports07:59
nipuLhmm new dbus-glib ships with bash autocompletions, ditch or keep?08:02
nipuLah, soft dependency08:04
nipuLi really do need to set up a clean build environment one of these days08:04
mike_kjaeger: I am really stuck building a kernel suitable for virtualbox (without those troublesome modules). can you give some info on exactly which of them cause the abortion?08:10
cruxbot[opt.git/2.5]: dbus-glib: update to 0.7808:10
cruxbot[opt.git/2.5]: poppler: update to 0.10.208:10
jaegermike_k: ide-generic and piix08:14
jaegermike_k: if you use only the libata drivers you'll have no trouble. disable the older ATA stuff entirely08:15
sepenthrice`, +1 to segregation, I don't like to merge kde into contrib
jaegermike_k: in other words, "ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support" should be disabled08:16
juesepen: right, but these errors would be fixed than08:16
sepenif will be fixed:08:17
jueor not merged08:18
sepenbut ATM could be a hard task todo, also kde4 is out08:18
mike_kjaeger: thanks. is that ide-pci-generic.ko and piix.ko? I currently have them as modules, but it hangs early during boot, I believe before the modules get loaded.08:19
jueagree, if KDE than version08:19
sepenyep with qt408:19
sepenmike_k, you can use init=/bin/sh and then call manually to init after edit some parameters08:19
mike_kon iso they seems to get loaded just after the libata stuff with 'CRUX libata'. how it does not work with libata builtin? I must be screwing something.08:20
jaegermike_k: ide-generic is separate from ide-pci-generic08:23
jaegermike_k: if you boot with CRUX libata the IDE modules still get loaded, just after the SATA ones08:23
jaegermike_k: try CRUX libata noide08:24
*** DarkNekros has joined #crux08:24
mike_kjaeger: 'CRUX libata' on iso works. Then with custom kernel, which have libata stuff builtin and ide stuff as modules (I believe) it still hags. now trying with all ide things disabled.08:26
jaegerit hangs? mine crashed the guest window, for what that's worth08:28
mike_kcrashed the guest window08:29
jaegerI would guess that piix or ide-generic still got loaded, then08:29
mike_kthere was an option to slow down the print...08:30
