CodeBlockby the way, how does CRUX live on 512mb /ram, with Xorg, and the usual multitasking, Firefox, thunderbird, a few terminals, xchat, etc... just say 5-6 apps.. I'm on arch right now, it's decent until I try to do something intensive, like Flash on Firefox... CRUX any better, RAM wise?02:13
CodeBlockright now, I have openbox, gnome-terminal (with 6 tabs), xchat (in about 25 channels), thunar, pidgin (1 IM convo), firefox (2 tabs), and Cisco Packet Tracer open, using 306mb of ram.02:15
*** acrux_ has quit IRC02:16
rehabdolldepends on what you run02:19
rehabdollCRUX wont magically extend the ram in your box02:19
rehabdollyou probably have more control over what your run with crux02:21
CodeBlockrehabdoll: hm02:26
CodeBlockI really need more RAM, whether I switch to CRUX or not... :S02:26
CodeBlockmy specs are decent, P4, 3.06ghz, but 512mb of ram02:26
rehabdollshould work just fine02:29
CodeBlockrehabdoll: thing is it's PC2100/2700 ram, and that's expensive...well, there's eBay but I still don't have money - that doesn't change things :P02:30
CodeBlockno, its PC3200, i think02:30
* CodeBlock looks02:31
CodeBlockyeah it's PC320002:31
CodeBlockwhich is even worse02:31
CodeBlockrehabdoll: but you think CRUX'd be fine on that, eh?02:32
* CodeBlock just needs to back up his stuff, then he'll try CRUX probably.02:32
rehabdollyeah. compiling stuff will perhaps suck a bit more02:32
rehabdollbut if you use openbox there shouldnt be that much trouble02:33

thrice`tilman: do you run 64-bit on anything, by chance?08:21
*** netos has joined #crux08:22
tilmannot atm08:40
thrice`hmph, ok08:43
thrice`some of the mesa intel stuff does not build on 64-bit by default, and curious if you had touched it at all.  specifically, some intel dri files08:45
thrice`they are also missing from the footprint, vs. the 32-bit counterpart08:47
thrice`well, I think my intel 3100 will use the i965_dri, which builds OK :)08:53
spacenin1ahow and where do I enable PAE?08:56
thrice`the spacebar, and in menuconfig08:56

thrice`rehabdoll: trying your latest iso, you symlink lib64 -> lib?12:36
thrice`interresting ... ;>12:37
tilman$proprietaryapp might look for libraries in lib6412:37
thrice`I suppose; sorry12:38
thrice`nevermind; I, for some reason, thought the link was lib -> lib64 at first.  this way makes sense12:41
rehabdollyeah, pretty much all $$$ apps look in lib6412:43
thrice`I think lib64 is actually proper from FSF standards, but not having to point each port at --libdir=/usr/lib64 is even nicer :)12:43
thrice`best of both worlds, I guess :>12:43
rehabdolleverything you compile work out of lib12:43
rehabdollremoving the symlink only breaks closed apps12:44

thrice`rehabdoll: hal and kbdil in the same way for me, with "expected-qualifier-list before '__u32'13:50
thrice`sorry, hal and kdb both fail in the same..*13:50
thrice`ever seen that one?13:51
*** acrux_ has joined #crux14:06
rehabdollyeah, the 2.6.28 headers are fucked :>14:19
*** acrux has quit IRC14:20
rehabdollill hunt down the fix14:23
thrice`ah, ok.  I was thinking it was glibc14:24
rehabdollwell the headers installed with glibc14:25
thrice`kbd I don't mind, but hal would be nice :)  i'll check gentoo, as I think their unstable is 2.6.28 + 2.9 too14:26
rehabdolladd "#include <linux/types.h>" to /usr/include/serial.h14:28
thrice` /usr/include/linux/serial.h ?  also, does location matter?14:30
rehabdollnah, somewhere in the beginning should do just nice14:31
rehabdollyeah /linux/ :>14:31
thrice`awesome; a little hack-ish, but it builds now :)14:32
rehabdollyeah ill fix it the future (tm)14:33
*** iam-near has joined #crux14:33
*** iam-near has left #crux14:34
thrice`it being hal, or glibc?14:34
rehabdollthe linux headers in glibxc14:34
rehabdollthere are other packages that are b0rked with those headers too14:34
thrice`glibc could be rebuilt with 2.6.27.x, perhaps14:35
thrice`I hate messing with toolchain stuff :|14:37
rehabdollits fun! :>14:37
tilmanrehabdoll: i think it would be a good idea if you kept toolchain versions in sync with whatever mainline crux uses :p14:38
tilmanless chance for mass confusion and all that14:38
thrice`downgrading glibc seems like it might set something on fire14:39
tilmanof course, that's definitely not what i'm suggesting :D14:39
rehabdollyeah ill try to build a new iso tomorrow or something14:39
thrice`no, I'm referring to my particular situation :)14:39
tilmanoh oops14:39
rehabdollyou could just edit the port and replace the header-url with this one:14:40
rehabdoll(glibc) that is14:41
thrice`and top it off, core-x86_64 is at glibc-2.7 :>14:43
tilmanno argument there. both core-x86_64 and xorg-x86_64 have fallen way behind14:48
tilmanwe should probably give rehabdoll write access to those two as well14:49
tilmanthrice`: ... or you? ;)14:49
* thrice` runs away14:49
rehabdollxorg-x86_64 seems kind of redundant at the moment since everything (i think) in xorg builds fine on 64bit14:50
tilmanwhat about mesa3d?14:51
rehabdollbuilds fine14:51
tilmanoh right14:51
tilmanin a previous versions the i686 one had some blurb about x8614:51
tilmanbut i think that was before i switched to using their configure script14:52
thrice`rehabdoll: some of those give me odd results14:54
thrice`from c64.rsync14:54
