armornickhey guys, I heard some rumors, if you will, that gnome is very hard to install in crux07:05
armornickany comments? ;)07:05
aonthere's a howto on the wiki07:06
aonwtf, gnome is at 2.2607:08
aonthe last version i used was 2.4 or something :D07:08
*** jtnl has joined #crux07:10
armornickI'm really wondering whether Crux is a distro for me07:10
armornickI've already moved way past Ubuntu and the likes, and I really like distros like Arch but the packages are a little too new for me07:11
mike_k_well, if you like Arch, but the art of package management and building is frightening - you'd rather avoid CRUX for now =)07:21
armornickthat's not what I mean07:22
armornickI'm talking about the fact that slackware, for example, uses older but stabler packages07:22
armornickand I heard that Crux can do that since you choose what versions to install07:23
aonwell yeah, but that means that you'll deviate from the main distro and there will be even less handholding :)07:23
armornickperhaps I'll better stick to Debian, but then I loose BSD-init-style07:26
thrice`using a crux with a heavy desktop environment seems difficult to me, but some do it07:48
thrice`I have used the crux gnome ports in the past, and they are very well done and easy to install, though.  just time consuming07:51
*** deus_ex has joined #crux07:53
armornickwell, I don't think crux is for me, since the command makefs scares me :D07:53
*** pedja has quit IRC07:56
armornickseems I'll be going with either arch or slackware (zenwalk)07:56
thrice`slackware doesn't have gnome, fwiw07:57
armornickall de's do the same thing, but don't tell the developers ;)07:58
aonexcept gnome doesn't do anything :)08:00

thrice`anyone have a good (acpid?) solution to auto-dim screen brightness if it drops to battery power ?  in xfce, I use xfce4-power-manager, but something for openbox would be slick10:36
*** esters has joined #crux10:36
thrice`ah, i found /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness11:10
tilmanmy i915's vbios used to do that11:25

aonme neither, i think11:52

teKpciutils creates /usr/share/pci.ids with permissions: 600 and root:root.. this seems a little bit to  harsh to me. Maybe it should be set to 64414:09
thrice`-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 590309 May  3 07:51 /usr/share/pci.ids14:10
thrice`seems OK here14:11
teKwtf :)14:12
