rastajamesthought you were implying that you no longer use google as the first place for information05:44
ahmrahtcheerand you'll see me use "fixin' to" which is a Texanism/Southernism meaning "getting ready to"05:45

ahmrahtcheeri liked Bush Jr better when he was our state governor....as far as i could tell he didn't do a damn thing, and generally speaking a politician that does nothing is infinitely preferable to a politician who does something.06:02

rehabdolldeath penalty.. its so 3rd world06:10
sepenahmrahtcheer, imho also the funniest was when Bush was coupled with Aznar06:15
ahmrahtcheery'all have to realize that i didn't vote for him, except when he was running for governor.  i'm a libertarian, so his views on most things are antithetical to mine.06:18
ahmrahtcheerer... are opposite to mine.06:18
ahmrahtcheeramerican libertarianism can be briefly explained thusly:  the government should a) deliver the mail, b) maintain the roads, c) defend the country against outside aggression, d) otherwise leave its citizens the hell alone.06:20

ahmrahtcheerhehe, i have a P2 ThinkPad that i'm going to fix up for my kids to use, and a P3 TP that i'm using right now.09:07
treachactually, it was my cat that tried to retire it.. and it took a long time for me to get the cable fixed again.09:07
ahmrahtcheerthe boys had a noname brand Pentium lappy that i installed linux on, but it died09:08
ahmrahtcheeri know about cats and computers...we have 8 cats09:08
aonmy cat is more against radios than computers09:09
treachthis one is a bit special. He chews cables like there's no tomorrow.09:09
treachhe cut the powercord to my tp between the brick and the computer. He's also chewed right through a cat5 cable, the type with solid leaders.09:10
aonhah09:10
ahmrahtcheerwe have 7 puppies right now who have to be kept away from the cables, else they're liable to sink those sharp little puppy teeth into a power cable which would result in a severely borked puppy09:10
treachahmrahtcheer: heh, the cat of one of my friends did that. Amazingly he made it, but he got zinged quite a bit. :D09:11

taariI use dhclient to get a local IP from my router which is connected to the internet. Now I could surf. But I also want to connect to a VPN from my uni, because some sites are only available from there. I connect to it (set the route) using pppd. (It's a Microsoft VPN implementation with MPPE voodoo.) Is it possible to use both at the same time with one NIC?10:10

rehabdollnah, i'll leave that to the experts10:34
ahmrahtcheeri'm interested in ext4, just not real sure how reliable it is, yet10:36
ahmrahtcheeri don't do windows, am entirely *nix and most of my serious work is done in linux, so losing a partition could be pretty catastrophic.10:37
treachthat's why you're supposed to keep backups. ;)10:37
ahmrahtcheer:P that's why i want to set up a RAID 110:38
tilmani'll probably try btrfs in raid1 mode10:38
tilmaneventually10:38
treachmeh, I think raid1 is a bit overrated.10:39
treachit doesn't protect you against silent corruption, which is one of the more common faults.10:39
ahmrahtcheerwhat would you recommend then, RAID-wise?  RAID 2?10:40
treachnot fun to discover that you not only have one disc full of crap, but *two*. :>10:40
ahmrahtcheer2 backups, 2 'striped'?10:41
treach5, 6 or 10, depending on budget/need. :p10:41
ahmrahtcheerwell there goes that idea...10:41

* ahmrahtcheer is on a tight budget10:41

Also try to put in any form of critizism against anyone criticizing israel immediately getting labled nazi and antisemite. :>13:54

jaegerATI hasn't put in the same effort nvidia has for their drivers14:31
klickDamn thing just dies when I ran an GL based xlock screensaver.14:31
RotwangATI == bunch of walruses14:32
klickAMD actually :)14:32
taariand although I like the efforts from NVidia, is questionable if they profited from it14:32
treachati is quite ok.14:32
RedShiftATI = fail, Nvidia = fail14:32
treachat least you're not left high and dry the day they decide they can get away with dropping support for your card.14:33
taariright, VESA 2.0 framebuffer is everything one could ever need :P14:33
* treach is currently on an ati 7500... :>14:33
klickThis is just fucking beautiful... after restarting X after the GL crash I get nothing on monitor 1 and 640x480 on monitor 2.... (it should be 1680x1050 on both)14:33
treachwith 3D! :D14:33
* klick runs Xorg using fbdev 1440x900 on his T6114:34
tilmanfbdev? why?14:34
jaegerfbdev at high resolutions sounds kinda annoying14:34
jaegerbut I haven't done that so maybe I'm wrong14:34
klickWorks just as fine as anyting else as long as you do not want acceleration.14:35
treachlol, glxgears -> ~690 fps14:35
jaegerwe certainly don't need another ati vs. nvidia war, that's been done to death :)14:35
taariI have an Intel X3100 in my Thinkpad.. it's supposed to be 3D-able too.. but I still use VESA14:35
klickfbdev can run in hight bitdepths as well.14:35
jaegerIs it fast enough to be useful?14:35
tilmanwhy would you want acceleration14:36
klickWell, I run xterm and fvwm so it is fast enough for me.14:36
tilmanokay, i fail at sarcasm14:36
jaegertilman: technically that wasn't even a question :)14:36
klickI sometimes run firefox but not that often since I have it running on my laptop instead.14:36
taari(yea, that's the reason I couldn't be arsed to use it until today ;-)14:36
treachtilman: faster scrolling text? ;)14:36
tilmanfaster everything?14:36
jaegerIt's been a long time since I used fbdev but I think even sluggishness moving windows around would drive me nuts14:37
jaegerthat's why I hated the original releases of mac os x14:37
klickThis shit just died completely... vesa here I come.14:37
klicktaari: Will VESA run at 1680x1050?14:37
taariI have a 12" notebook, 1024x768 is enough for me ;>14:38
Rotwangi doubt vesa will run at that resolution ;]14:38
taarioh, thought it was a rhetorical question14:39
Rotwangtrue :/14:40
treachklick: what chip do you have?14:41
taariDo I save a bit of energy when I only use VESA instead of my X3100? (I didn't even compile support for it into the kernel) Or does that make no difference?14:45
Rotwangdamn "in bruges" is pretty boring14:45
taariyes :>14:46

taaritilman: Sorry for the delay. Yes. (Called xserver-xorg-video-vesa here, still use Debian.) But yea.15:16
tilmanthat's insane15:17
taariHmm, although same question with VESA or Intel framebuffer.15:17
taariI know that possible differences can't be massive, but I'm just curious.15:17
tilmanESPECIALLY since the intel driver is pretty good15:17
tilmanwith intel's framebuffer compression, i bet using -vesa makes it draw more power15:18
taariOk, you already convinced me ;->15:18

klickI think Radeon fucked my computer...16:17
klickMy kernel refuses to boot, it freezes at "BIOS data check successful". You may ask if I have changed the kernel and the answer would be not. I have only screwed around with xorg.conf.16:18
RyoSfrickling with xorg.conf crashes your kernel to boot?16:24
klickNo the xorg.conf file directly but my radeon cards.16:24
klicks/No/Not/16:24
treachpresumeably, if he told his graphics card something bad enough it could hold it even over a powercycle.16:25
klickI told it to enter vesa/1024x768 mode...16:25
treachwhat radeon?16:25
klick7000/VE and 9200 Pro16:26
klickI do not want xinerama, but the shit dies if I don't use xinerama.16:27
klickIt does start, eventually, but when I try to restart my WM on one of the monitors everything crashes... not only xorg.16:27
treachmmh, xinerama.. isn't that kind of discouraged nowadays?16:28
treachanyway, multimonitor is a pain no matter which card you're using afaict.16:29
klickPerhaps, I don't care since I do not want it either way. :)16:29
klickI've used nVidia cards and I've never had any trouble with it then.16:29
treachlucky you.16:29
klickYeah, but then I've only used one card. Now I have 2x Radeon.16:30
treachI have an nvidia in my desktop box, and it's a pain to use with kde4, since the driver is really buggy.16:30
tilmantreach: tried nouveau?16:30
treachno, the card is too new for that16:31
klickYeah, I was told in another channel that nVidia has trouble with KDE4 specifically.16:31
tilmanaaw16:31
*** pitillo has quit IRC16:31
klickBut I don't use KDE.16:31
treachtilman: my thought exactly :P16:31
treachand I don't use multiple graphics cards, so I presume that makes us even.16:32
tilmanmultimonitor doesn't imply pain16:32
tilmanmultiple *cards* might be tricky16:33
tilmansince the bios will only post your primary card and the driver has to try to poke at the 2nd one16:33
klickWell, none of the cards have more than one DVI-out.16:33
klickBoth have 1x VGA and 1x DVI though. But the cards are so sucky I get shit via VGA.16:33
