thrice`rehabdoll: have you built any 2.6 goodies (eg, toolchain) ?10:14
rehabdollyes10:14
rehabdollbtw, what provides the blkid stuff?10:14
jaegere2fsprogs10:15
thrice`http://crux.nu/Wiki/TODO26  jue put it under the util-linux-ng stuff10:15
thrice`I think the goal in 2.6 is to use it from util-linux-ng10:16
rehabdollboth util-linux-ng and e2fsprogs whines about it during configure10:16
rehabdoll:>10:16
thrice`so, udev now rids of vol_id in 142, and apps (like hal) use blkid instead of vol_id10:16
rehabdolloh, silly me10:17
jaegeroh, maybe I'm mistaken, sorry10:17
rehabdollprt-get uses my x86_64 port :>10:17
thrice`judging from the footprints, it seems e2fsprogs still provides it.  I guess the switch hasn't been made yet10:18

*** spaceninja has joined #crux11:22
spaceninjais the default route the gw in /etc/rc.d/net ?11:27
tilmanyes11:27
spaceninjaok, but where do I specify the netmask and dns?11:28
shimshamyou do with ifconfig11:28
shimshamand dns is in /etc/resolv.conf11:28
tilmanoyoy.11:28
spaceninjaoh ok thanks11:29
tilmanthe netmask is given as the number of set bits11:29
tilmaneg: 192.168.0.1/2411:29
tilman-> 24 bits set in the netmask11:29
tilman= 255.255.255.011:29
tilmansince 255 is 11111111 in binary ;)11:30
strawCIDR +1!11:31
spaceninjaok11:32
spaceninjabut I need this 255.255.255.19211:32
tilmanwell, i told you 255 equates to 8 in that magic number11:33
tilmanso you got 3 * 8 = 24 (duh)11:33
spaceninjaok11:33
shimshamwho cares about netmasks11:33
tilmantranslate 192 to binary11:33
shimshamits like windoze, you can configure it imporperly and it'll probably work11:33
tilmanand count the number of set bits :P11:33
tilman192 = 128 - 64 => 2 bits11:34
tilman-> 24 + 2 = 2611:34
tilmanwhy am i so helpful?11:34
shimshamyou are teh man11:34
tilmanusually i don't help with shit like this :>11:34
spaceninjashimsham: I'm going to colocate a server and they send me some configs that I need11:35
shimshamyeah i run a colo company too11:36
spaceninjamaybe they got a dhcpc server11:36
shimshamdoubtful11:36
spaceninjaso I need to hard config these stuff?11:36
shimshamif someone asked me to setup a dhpcd server cause they coudlnt configure thier ips11:36
shimshamid say they dont need a colo11:36
spaceninja:)11:37
shimshamid suggest some managed services11:37
shimshamlike a dedicated server or virtual private server11:37
spaceninjabut none of them got crux11:37
shimshamwith mgmt11:37
shimshami offer CRUX11:37
shimshami run a CRUX mirror too11:37
shimshamthis isnt the place for sales tho11:37

*** mrks- has joined #crux12:48
shimshamwell12:50
shimshamhow do you mean12:50
shimshamjust create a /boot partition with each seperate kernel12:50
dllsI have CRUX installed on /dev/sda712:51
shimshamthen do something like this12:51
shimshamlba3212:51
shimshamboot = /dev/cciss/c0d012:51
shimshamdelay = 5012:51
shimshamimage = /boot/bzImage12:51
shimsham        root = /dev/cciss/c0d0p112:51
dllsand Arch on /dev/sda112:52
shimsham        label = CRUX12:52
shimsham        read-only # read-only for checking12:52
shimshamimage = /boot/bzImage12:52
shimsham        root = /dev/cciss/c0d1p112:52
shimsham        label = ArchLinux12:52
shimsham        read-only # read-only for checking12:52
shimshamchange teh roots12:52
shimshamto whatever yours are12:52
shimshamthen run lil12:52
shimshamo12:52
shimshamyou know technically you should be able to run the same kernel for each12:52
shimshamyou can use the same kernel, same swap space, same /home12:52
dllsso I have to copy the kernel from /dev/sda1/boot /dev/sda7/boot ?12:52
shimshamno12:52
dllshmm12:53
shimshamkeep both distrso kernel12:53
shimshamin /boot12:53
shimshamcopy the kernel from arch linux to /boot, name it archlinux-kernel-v2.612:53
shimshamthen copy the CRUX kernel to /boot, name it crux-kernel-v2.612:53
dllsaha12:53
thrice`doesn't arch use an initrd though?12:53
shimshamhrm12:53
shimshamarch linux would.12:54
dllsI don't know I hope it will work12:54
shimshammaybe12:54
shimshami dunno12:54
shimshamall you need to do is setup different options for each kernel12:54
shimshamchange the /roots12:54
shimshamits the same for all bootloaders12:54
shimshamuse GRUB if you need to12:54
shimshamive used lilo forever12:54
dllsI'll copy the kernel from /dev/sda1/boot to the CRUX partition wich is /dev/sda7/boot12:54
shimshamyou can leave them on the same boot12:55
dllsok12:55
shimshamthrice`: help me am i not explaining clearly?12:55
dllslet's see what will happen12:55
dllsthanks12:55
dllsI am going to reboot now12:55

dllswhy?14:31
shimshamit just does14:31

dllsbut it can load my DNS14:32
shimshamyour /etc/resolv.conf format should be14:32
dllsI can ping IPs14:32
shimshamsearch domain.com14:32
shimshamnameserver 4.2.2.114:32
dllsI have added only nameserver <IP>14:33
dllswhat is this search about14:33
jaegerif you do something like "ping wtf" and wtf is really wtf.domain.com, you need search domain.com14:34
shimshamdlls14:35
shimshamare you sure your nameserver works14:35
shimshamtry using 4.2.2.214:35
shimshamor 4.2.2.114:35
tilmanthose search directives are optional anyway14:35
tilmanso that's not your problem14:35
dllsI am wondering if arch really loads resolv.conf14:35
shimshamdlls: you can ping your namesrver?14:36
dllssorry about my english14:36
tilmanresolv.conf certainly isn't a crux thing14:36

dllsjust because of that I've installed Arch14:38
shimshamwoo i have successfully setup google adwords14:39
shimshamsplended14:39
dllsfor example I need OpenOffice now but don't want to compile it from source I CRUX-like14:39
dllsI will need a lot of time14:39
dlls:)14:39
treachoo.o is a binary package14:39
shimshamyou dont need to compile it14:39
dllsit's easier in Arch14:39
shimshamthey distribute binary packages14:40
dllswho? crux?14:40
shimshamno, openoffice14:40
dllsreally? where?14:40

straw*was he thinking16:06
tilmanjesus you're ignorant16:06
treachindeed16:06
shimshambecause i dont enjoy to use a text editor?16:06
thrice`tilman: hm, resume worked this time WRT brightness :|16:06
treachshimsham: old terminals didn't have arrow keys, that's why hjkl is used.16:06
treachalso it happens to be on the home row16:06
shimshaminteresting16:07
treachso you don't have to move your hands16:07
tilmanthrice`: oh, you said *resume*. sorry, i was thinking of booting16:07
shimshambut keyboards do have arrows now16:07
shimshamwhen was hte last time you used a terminal with no arrow keys?16:07
tilman<    treach> also it happens to be on the home row16:07
tilman<    treach> so you don't have to move your hands16:07
straw:>16:07
thrice`nah.  booting actually worked (with KMS :D ), but when I did a suspend/resume, it came back at 016:07
shimshamyou have to move your hands anyways16:07
treachno16:07
tilmanthrice`: weird. might be a bug then. until now i thought it was a (power saving?) feature16:08
tilmanthrice`: you've got an i965, right?16:08
thrice`heh.  sure, "turning the screen black will make battery last longer!!) ;_16:09
thrice`yes, i96516:09
treachat least vim uses saner keys than old "escape meta alt control shift" :>16:09
tilmanit does16:09
thrice`X3100 iirc16:09
tilmanbacklight is a major factor on power consumption (at least on my laptop)16:09
strawit wasn't working for me the last tiem I tried to use KMS (also i965/X3100)16:09
tilmanyes, 2.6.29 didn't work with i956s16:10
thrice`tilman: oh yes, I agree, but that would be a silly thing for them to assume I want it set to 0 at boot (or resume)16:10
strawoh? I didn't know that16:10
strawbut didn't really did into it either back then16:10
straw*dig16:10
tilmanthrice`: yeah. usually when you poke the hardware, you want to use it in the very near future :D16:11
thrice`I also noticed that my wifi signal on 2.6.30 is much higher than 2.6.29.  It used to sit around 80%, and now is pretty steady between 98-10016:11
strawyup, same here :)16:11
thrice`perhaps power is diverted from my backlight to the wifi card :D16:12

bombasttilman: It's still activity and work, and that's a good thing. (TM)16:21
juethrice`: btw, why do you think that the blkid switch hasn't been done yet?16:22
thrice`I just saw blkid listed in core-2.6's .footprint for e2fsprogs16:24
juebombast: you're right, at all it's a lot of work16:24
bombast:)16:25
bombastGood to see it happening, though.16:25
tilmanright16:25
juethrice`: look again, please ;)16:28
thrice`oh, sorry; you are very right.  I see a 2.5 in my URL16:29
tilmani need to patch pkgutils wrt the xz stuff16:33
tilmanatm, libarchive is initialized with support for all archive formats and all compression algorithms16:33
tilman-> if libarchive knows about xz, i need to statically link pkgadd to liblzma16:33
tilman(a)16:34
thrice`pkgutils6?16:34
tilmanor (b), only tell libarchive to use tar and gzip16:34
tilmanno, this applies to the current stuff as well16:34
thrice`oh, I thought libarchive knowing of xz-utils would be plenty to pass to pkgadd16:34
tilmanerr?16:35
tilmani didn't get that16:35
thrice`oh, wait.  I thought you were saying you need to patch pkgutils for xz-support16:37
tilmanthat is what i'm saying16:37
tilmanpkgadd is linked staatically16:37
tilmanso every library that libarchive uses needs to show up in pkgutils' Makefile16:38
tilmanatm: LDFLAGS += -static -larchive -lz -lbz216:38
thrice`oooh, I see now16:38
tilmantwo choices:16:38
tilmana) make it possible to use tar.xz files with pkgadd/pkginfo and blow up pkgadd16:38
tilmanb) don't. :D16:38
tilmanmaybe i should bring this up on crux-devel16:39
juetilman: why do we need bz2/xz support for pkgadd?16:39
thrice`does b) still allow package#*pkg.tar.xz  distribution?16:39
tilmanthrice`: nein!16:39
tilmanjue: if we decide we want to have xz-compressed tarballs on the iso instead of gz... :)16:40
tilman_if_16:40
jueyeah, only if16:40
tilmanmy point is:16:40
tilmanwe need to make up our minds. pkgutils will need a patch one way or another16:40
tilmanthe question is just how the patch looks like :)16:41
*** andrea91 has joined #crux16:41
andrea91hi all16:41
thrice`and the details of "blow up" (or don't I want to know?) :)16:41
juebut anyway, we don't need the bz216:41
andrea91I would want to use a 64-bit of crux16:41
andrea91I've already seen this:16:41
andrea91http://ecarux.de/crux86_64/16:41
tilmanandrea91: obra.se/c6416:41
andrea91ok, differences between the two ports?16:42
thrice`one seems to work better than the other ;)16:42
jaegerno idea if ecarux is maintained16:42
andrea91(and, at that point, are there others ports? xD)16:42
jaegerthere's a multilib one as well but no ISO for it16:42
tilmanandrea91: nipuL is working on a multilib crux16:42
jaegeryou can install the pure64 one and update it to multilib, though16:43
tilmanheh, i was just going to ask about that16:43
thrice`jaeger: do you plan to try an iso ?  I might be interested :)16:43
andrea91I don't need multilib16:43
jaegerthrice`: yeah, I plan to make one16:43
jaegerI'll look into it monday since that install is my work desktop16:43
tilmanandrea91: a few of us use rehabdoll's iso (obra.se), it's working nicely16:43
andrea91only 2.5 branch?16:43
jesse_2.6 is not released yet.16:44
bombast^16:44
jaegerI believe it is at the moment16:44
andrea91well, it is not released, but a 32-bit crux can be upgraded to it :P16:44
juetilman: at all I'm a bit questionable because of the additional work for the having-xz-packages-only-for-the-iso stuff16:44
thrice`jaeger: awesome; I thought I had read you might try, but couldn't remember16:44
tilmanjue: me too. also the fact that it will probably raise the minimum ram required to install crux16:45
tilmanand it's not like iso size is a _problem_16:45
andrea91tilman, where is that rehabdoll's iso?16:45
tilmanandrea91: obra.se/c6416:45
jueyeah, I'd suggest to limit it for now to pkgmk16:46
treachtilman: think of all the poor people on dial up! ;)16:46
andrea91ah, the one you linked me16:46
andrea91ok16:46
tilmanjue: you mean gz?16:46
jueno, xz support16:46
andrea91ok, downloading it, thanks16:46
tilman"I'd suggest to limit it for now to pkgmk"16:47
tilmanjue: i'm not getting that :D16:47
tilmanjue: you're saying, limit pkgutils to tar/gz?16:47
juepkgmk should support *.xz tarballs ;)16:47
tilmanalright16:48
tilmanwait.16:48
tilmanyou mean source tarballs/distfiles, right?16:48
jueyeah16:48
tilmanok16:48
andrea91excuse me, I'm not on Linux now and I can't use rsync: what's the version of openoffice in the contrib ports?16:50
tilman3.0.016:50
treachrotwang is busy and hasn't had time to build a new version. (I'm kidding)16:51
Rotwanghahaha16:52
Rotwangit's teh last port from contrib that needs update16:52
Rotwangmy port16:52
Rotwangand awesome16:52
*** mike_k has joined #crux16:52
andrea91"build"... I think it's just changing a number in the Pkgfile. I hope I'll not have problems doing it16:53
jaegerI should get rid of my old openoffice port16:53
Rotwangandrea91: no16:54
treachandrea91:Now, I'm joking, but seriously that guy at least for a time maintained a source based port for it. :>16:54
andrea91the port in contrib points to a precompiled package?16:54
treachyeah16:54
tilmanthe official one16:55
andrea91there is a source-based port somewhere?16:55
Rotwangmaybe ecarux has one16:55
Rotwangbuilding OOo from source is really REALLY painful16:56
andrea91I know it, I used to do it on Gentoo >_>16:56
thrice`are there really advantages from source?16:57
andrea91the fact that I'm no more using gentoo should tell you the answer xD16:57
thrice`oh, you seemed to want an OOo from source ;)16:57
* jaeger prunes the hell out of his repo16:57
treachthrice`: yeah, it gives you the oppertunity to test if your computer is really well cooled. :>16:58
andrea91I only want the latest version :D16:58
thrice`you will need to change 3.0.0 in version, and also the basis link from 3.0 to 3.116:58
andrea91no problem, I can do that :)16:58
thrice`"ln -sf basis3.0 basis-link"  to basis3.1 basis-link16:59
andrea91thank you16:59
Rotwangandrea91: yeah, building is one thing and maintaining source OOo port is another ;]17:00

andrea91no shimsham, what you want to use17:35

bombast;P17:36

shimshamatleast its not Ruby17:36
andrea91I even used pkgutils from CRUX within a LFS build17:36
shimsham:)17:36
vektoriAnd because there's a gazillion files in their package tree...17:36
bombastmostly the fact its python17:36
shimshamvektori, that aside17:36
shimshamits slow17:36
bombastbecause the C++ portage is a lot faster17:36
shimshamif that was written in C17:36
shimshamit would scream17:37
shimshami hate C++ too :(17:37

shimshamjust like most linux distro developers17:37

bombastHonestly I think the gentoo developers are idiots.17:41
andrea91honestly, I can no more find a distro I like17:41
andrea91(I still have to try Crux :P)17:41
bombasti landed on crux and stuck17:42
shimshambombast: me too17:42
shimshama WHILE back17:42
andrea91well, I hope so17:42
shimshamthe only thing that kept me away back then17:42
shimshamit was VERY new17:42
shimshamnot many packages17:42
shimshamas of now theres pretty much anything youd need17:42
andrea91I would use LFS but I don't have enough time now17:42
bombastandrea91: you could always install crux with JUST core and delete the rsync for opt/ ancd contrib/17:43
bombastthen do all your own ports17:43
bombastthat'd be like a mini lfs17:43
andrea91I was doing the contrary17:43
andrea91building LFS17:43
andrea91and using pkgutils17:43
andrea91as package manager17:43
shimshami think you should just use CRUX17:43
andrea91writing my own ports17:43
bombasti would just install crux with core/17:43
bombastand do my own17:43
shimshamits got the best simple install17:43
shimshamever17:44
andrea91yeah, in fact I'm doing so17:44
andrea91now17:44
shimshamcrux install is so awesome that you could probably get thru it without reading docs17:44
thrice`use an updated iso for crux, though :)17:44
bombastive thought about doing that17:44
andrea91but at the time I thought there weren't x86-64 ports17:44
shimshami used one of the 64bit CRUX's17:44
andrea91it was the reason because I was using LFS + pkgutils17:45
shimshamapparently i picked the 'bad' one17:45
treachwell, there's a reason 64bit isn't official yet17:45
shimshammm infact its time for an update17:45
shimshamtreach, yeah true, but i used the ecarux version17:46
shimshamthe one that is never going to be official17:46
treachindeed not.17:46

andrea91uhm... I want to do a lot of things, but I've to finish my thesis for the maturità (dunno how do you call it in english... in italy there is an exam at the and of the secondary school)18:21
andrea91that's the reason because I wanted the latest version of openoffice :P18:21
treachwrite your text in an editor, and use scribus to fix the layout. :p18:22
lennartuse LaTeX, if it's an important document18:23
andrea91I'm not very good with LaTeX18:23
andrea91and I have 14 days left :P18:23
treachlatex is fine, but it takes a bit of learning.18:23
treachI wish I had discovered scribus a lot earlier.18:24
andrea91ok, i'm burning crux 64's iso18:24
treachIt looks like crap, but it's a lot easier than trying to create a "layout" in writer/word. :/18:24
andrea91well, me too. It's too late for learning anything :P18:24
shimsham<treach> latex is fine, but it takes a bit of learning.18:24
shimshamdude18:24
lennartnever tried scribus18:24
shimshamLyX FTW18:24
shimsham!18:24
shimshamlyx is fucking great.18:25
treachlennart: think a bit like indesign or maybe quark, but a lot more limited.18:25
lennartnever heard of those either ;)18:25
treachok, can't help you then. :P18:25
lennartbit i think it's an FOSS variant of publisher ?18:26
shimshamlyx is a latext front end18:26

shimshamif you need to write a resume.. i have a great lyx template18:26

andrea91anyway, my thesis is on artificial intelligence18:26
shimshammine was on wireless sensors18:27

andrea91I know18:34
andrea91not a good sign, anyway xD18:34
jaegerIt's been fixed on the 32-bit ISO but there's not an updated 64-bit one yet18:34
jaegerIt bothers me, considering I wrote that :) but still18:35

andrea91a lot of errors about a shared library, libgmp, while it is installing packages18:48

andrea91yes. it's not the first time I'm installing CRUX (even if it is the first time I want to use it seriously)19:01
andrea91Once I've tried the i586 version of it into a Pentium 166mhz laptop ^_^19:02
andrea91hours and hours in order to compile the kernel xD19:02
treachbeen there done that. not fun, but it works.19:02
andrea91a bit slow... xD19:03
treachwell, at least it works when you're done.19:04
andrea91yes, absolutely19:04
treachprecompiled distros was unbearable on the one I had, since they pulled in too much crap, and it only had 32MB ram.19:05

jaegerah, heh19:50
andrew91:P19:50
jaegerI mean that you don't have to use that package, you can build the regular port19:51
andrew91I don't think so... at least, on gentoo it required either grub-static or grub + a lot of 32 bit libraries19:51
thrice`(just use lilo) :>19:51
andrew91no no, I'll use grub, I've already installed the package that comes with the iso :)19:52

andrew91yeah, some19:52

jaegerI forgot you said you didn't want multilib, never mind19:53
