plutonashello, i'm looking for an alternative to archlinux, as it's packaging annoys me a bit. i have 2 questions06:25
plutonas1. is there somewhere a list of the differences between arch and crux?06:25
plutonas2. how well does crux support lisp (are there enough packages etc)06:26
tilmandoesn't seem too popular :|06:30
plutonashm, not much of a support, just clisp06:30
plutonashm, i change my second question then, how easy is it to manage compilations from source06:31
plutonaswould all the files get arranged somehow seperately by stuff installed by the system and/or packages?06:31
tilmanthat's the build instructions for that clisp port06:32
tilmanit's more complex than most packages ;)06:32
plutonashm, i am not thinking of giving build instructions and producing packages for crux06:32
plutonasnot at this point at least06:32
plutonasif i just download the source and compile according to the README file06:33
tilmanah, i misunderstood06:33
tilmanif you build stuff manually, you should put it in /usr/local06:33
plutonashow easy would it be for me to deinstall etc06:33
tilmansince /usr is "owned" by the packages06:33
tilmanin that respect crux is no different from other distros though06:33
plutonasit wouldn't be many packages i'd install that way, but i like to keep things clean06:33
plutonassure but other distro's might have packages, or provide some seperate space for self-compilations06:34
plutonasanyways, what about the first questions?06:34
tilmanimo it's preferable to create ports for stuff that you need06:37
tilmanmakes it easier to update/remove/whatever06:38
tilmandunno about a list of differences between arch and crux06:38
plutonashm, i want to change a distribution, but i'm trying to keep the learning new things task as small as possible at this point06:38
plutonasit want be my main OS anyways, as i use freebsd for that06:38
tilmancrux is somewhat close to the bsds in spirit06:39
tilmanbsd-like init, ports system06:39
plutonaswhy do you believe archlinux which is a crux port became much more popular than crux?06:41
tilmani thought arch'ers care much about the fact that arch is _not_ a crux derivative :>06:41
nipuLbinary packages06:42
plutonashm, crux doesn't have binary packages?06:42
rehabdollon the iso only06:42
nipuLother than that, arch is a pos06:42
plutonasa pos?06:42
plutonasi'm sorry i think i want a binary distro so crux is not for me, my mistake... but what is a pos?06:43
rehabdollpiece of shite?06:43
plutonashaha, ok06:43
rehabdolldunno, nipul is an aussie :)06:43

jaegerhrmm... evdial doesn't want to build for me in the 2.6 tree. an error about "invalid conversion from 'int (*)(const dirent**, const dirent**)' to 'int (*)(const void*, const void*)'10:29
jaegerwvdial, even10:30
tilmanah, it's c++10:34
tilmani was wondering why gcc would give that error :D10:34
estersHe does not like you10:37
tilmanjaeger: works for me though. gcc 4.4.0, right?10:37
jaeger4.3.3 at the moment, perhaps I need to update the build environment to the 2.6 packages10:40
* tilman tries with gcc 4.3.3 on x86_6410:41
tilmanokay, it's dying with an x86_64 specific error10:45
tilmanjaeger: maybe wvdial's svn repository has a fix?10:45
jaegerperhaps, but trying gcc 4.4 first10:45
jaegerlooks like gcc was the fix10:46
