clarehi Folks, Happy New Year.  Question: is anyone working on WICD ?04:47
sepenfor crux? lol04:48
clareHave I said something funny?04:49
sepenwell, teorically people should configure manually their networks in crux04:50
clareOh, I am beginning to think that might be easier.04:51
sepensure, but edit /etc/rc.d/net is not easy?04:52
clareit is wpa-supplicant thatis my current problem. But maybe I will have todo that anyway as the wicd uses it.04:53
sepenhmm that sounds more interesting04:54
clarethe wicd is nice in that it mechanises the setting uo for a machine that travels around and has to change for each place.04:56
sepenactually I'm using that for wifi (wep)
clareI will start tomorrow to get wpa-supplicant going; - the problem is that wep is old. I have it at home becasue one of the users has an old WinXP04:57
dru1dmodifi net script to wpa_start04:58
dru1dwith interface secification04:58
dru1dend line like wpa_supplicant -D wext -i ath0 ....04:59
pitill0clare: are you using ecarux wicd port? (seems a bit outdated) btw, which is the problem with wicd?04:59
dru1din /rc.d/net You could specify static ip for wifi interface04:59
dru1dand after start wpa_start script04:59
dru1dI have something like this.04:59
claredruid: Hi, I am going to linux conf in Hobart next week. It would be nice to be able to use their wireless there is no choice.05:01
dru1duse script with ssid and psk declaration05:02
clareptillo: I tried it, it worked, sort of, version is now 1.5.8, difference not known. BUt some important stuff was missing.05:02
clarePtillo: in addiiton the wicd itself is unhelpful about required software, I am gradually getting enough bits together.05:03
dru1dOke last one try with atheros.05:03
pitill0clare: sorry I don't understand very well. I think wicd is only a gui to help with wifi setup, nothing more. I haven't tested it myself, but seems to do for you what you can do by hand. May be wicd is trying to look for something special (/etc/network/interfaces) which may be hasn't much sense with crux05:06
dru1dIs there something like iwlist scan + select by ssid?05:07
sepeniwlist $IFACE scanning05:07
dru1dAnd this maybe is a + ;]05:07
clareThank you all, I will have another look at it in view of what Ptillo said, I will start with wpa-supplicant. bye for now, clare05:09
sepenbye clare05:10

thrice`d'oh, i'm too late.  I had wicd working very well on my laptop.  it's a great tool :)07:51
luxhwhat's it for?07:51
thrice`it's a network manager.  point and click, basically07:52
thrice`just type in a password, and it creates the encryption templates and loads dhcpcd (or whichever)07:53
pitill0thrice`: are you using your own port?07:53
aonwhat's wrong with wpa_supplicant? :)07:53
thrice`well, it's not essential for a static laptop. but if you're movign around at all, it's a much nicer way of doing things (or am I just lazy? :)07:54
thrice`pitill0: I was, yes, but seem to have lost it.  It's very easy to create, hwoever07:54
pitill0thrice`: yep07:55
thrice`and it displays a pretty simple gtk window with all available networks, showing their encryption, and you just point + click to latch onto one07:55
treachthrice`: I think opensolaris have the record for convinence; I booted up my laptop with the live-cd a couple of days ago, and the first thing I saw when I got to the desktop was a friendly pop-up message that told me that I was connected to wireless network "belkin xyx" something.07:58
treachAnd I don't even HAVE a WLAN. :D07:59
treach(Woups.. :p )07:59
luxhgoddamn hackers!08:00
thrice`treach: how was opensolaris?08:04
treachDecent if you A) like gnome and B) have a beefy box.08:05
thrice`ah; the first is enough to keep away08:06
treachpower management isn't that great though, so if you - like I - have an athlon x2 you'll get to enjoy the sound of the cpu fan going at full blast all the time. :/08:07
treachI think there are packages for kde4 out there somewhere, and presumably the gnome ones are tossable.08:07
thrice`treach: I did finally get 4.2rc1 completed :)08:08
treachbut generally speaking, getting thirdparty stuff like media is much harder to get working, hardware in general is limited.08:08
thrice`it's working OK so far; though I'm not sure it's worth replacing openbox with a bunch of urxvt terminals :)08:09
treachkonsole doesn't work?08:10
thrice`oh, I meant in general08:10
treachI found out that I got addicted to a whole bunch of kde apps, so going back got too hard. :p08:11
thrice`konq. is pretty krappy, in my experience08:12
treachI guess that depends on what you're using it for.08:12
treachit's good enough for general browsing IMO, but javascripts sucks.08:13

pedjasepen: have you packaged xfce-4.6 yet?if you have, are ports available somewhere, I'd like to check them out.08:35
*** acrux has joined #crux08:35

sepenpedja, yep try the xfce46 repo from the portdb08:37
*** f1y has quit IRC08:37
pitill0pedja: take a look to the portdb, you will find it there08:37
sepenalso I'm using it at home for about two months08:37
sepenpedja, but note that still there are only a few ports08:38
sepeni.e: I'm still working on ristretto, etc.08:39
pedjaok, but base packages are there, right?08:40
pedjabarebone xfce, so to speak?08:40

clbjaeger: romster was last seen in #crux 2 weeks, 4 days, 2 hours, 57 minutes, and 57 seconds ago: <Romster> out of habbit.08:42
sepenpedja, nice, I'm glad to see you using it08:43
*** errdil has quit IRC08:44
pedjaI like xfce very much, it's lightweight, and I don't need level of integration that KDE/Gnome provide.08:44
sepenpedja, I'm waiting for beta3
thrice`sepen:  :)08:51

pitill0esters: sure :) there are a few manuals at web talking about crux on laptops10:13

estersthrice`: hey10:14
estersBTW thrice` you hang around slackware too ?10:15

dru1dmadwifi-hal 10 and rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.210:18
dru1detc/rc.d/net ;]10:19
treachesters: you could always try some live-cd for opensuse or ubuntu for instance.10:19
esterstreach: No thanks, I used ArchLinux on my laptop :>10:19
treachif it works there, it will probably work in crux too.10:19
dru1d+ wpa_supplicant10:19
treachesters: that wasn't the point.10:19
esterstreach: Yes I understood10:19
estersThe point is10:19
estersHow people manage network connections10:20
estersBecause on Arch there is network-profiles10:20
dru1dI wrote, You could wrote something like.10:20
dru1dnetcfg in ach10:20
treachwell, nothing stops you from having multiple network scripts.10:20
estersBut I know that CRUX doesn't have these distro-specific apps10:20
treachyou could have /etc/rc.d/wlan and /etc/rc.d/lan, for instance10:20
thrice`wicd is a good tool10:20
dru1dOr Autowifi.10:21
estersOk, thanks for the tip :)10:22
dru1dBack to fighting with amarok.10:23
estersCompiling ?10:25
dru1dMy wife use kde4 ;(10:25

*** sepen has quit IRC10:27
dru1dThe Deal?10:27

dru1dI need.10:28
esters"The real deal"10:28
dru1dWhen i saw at my wife desktop 4.1 ...10:28
dru1dNo comments.10:28
treachdru1d: you can't compare 4.2 to 4.110:29
estersYou could install GNOME :>10:29
dru1dBut, now I have 4.2 and this is nice.10:29
dru1dAt work I have only mac os ;]10:29
treachthe step between 4.1 and 4.0 is huge, and 4.1 to 4.2 is probably about as big10:29
dru1dI hate to moutch colors itp10:29
treachit's not like you can't fix that you know..10:30
estersOk, kernel compiled10:30
dru1dI know, but I use only xterm ;]10:30
estersNow for the russian roulette10:30
treachdru1d: it's ok, it's your loss ;)10:30
dru1dI have crux about 2 days..10:31
estersSame shit10:31
dru1dEarlier only fbsd.10:31
estersKernel Panic - Not Syncing CFS10:31
thrice`yeah, I've realized in kde4 that I only use konqueror and konsole 90% of the time.  not much of a reason to keep it around :)10:31
treachesters: you DID compile in the needed drivers, right?10:31
dru1desters: what hardware do You have?10:32

dru1dYou need kompile in ATA/ATAPI/MF.... Enhanced IDE/MFM/ ...10:42
estersDrivers for both ext2/3 are compiled10:42
treachINTO the kernel?10:42

estersI'm on Arch10:55
dru1dDo You ask about how to add services to boot?10:55
estersSo anyone could do prt-get fsearch /etc/services for me ? :>10:56
treachyou don't need internet for that search to work10:56
treachand it looks like it's iana-etc10:57
* thrice` doesn't understand the name iana :|10:57
thrice`also, you shouldn't omit anything from core/ (with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions)10:57
treachesters: just remember that you don't need a connction for stuff to work, unless it's for downloading things.10:58
estersOr searching10:58
thrice`well, you do to get your first ports tree :)10:58
treachah, right :p10:58
dru1dIf you forgot something to instal.10:59
