pedjatilman: gtk-2.16.5 is out, it is not listed at the front page of :)12:07
pedjai stumbled on it when I googled one of the FF warnings...12:07
pedjaand fullscreen flash crashes FF yet again...12:08
tilmanpedja: thanks. i didn't run ck4up in a while :p12:13
pedjanp.Is Crux-2.6 anywhere near release? :)12:16
pedjaI know, 'when it's ready'.12:17
tilmanactually, it is getting closer12:17
tilmanwe have a test1 pre-release, but unfortunately you won't be able to use it to update from 2.512:17
pedjathat xorg-related thingie, xcb, so full rebuild is needed?iirc...12:18
tilmanah, true12:19
pedjaso, 2.6 will be fresh install only?12:19
pedjaor I misunderstood?12:19
tilmanoh, sorry, misunderstanding12:20
tilmantest1 has another bug that will prevent an update12:20
tilmanthe 'xz' package isn't automatically installed on update12:20
tilmanit's not related to xcb12:20
pedjaxz is new archiver that packages use?12:21
pedjafoo.xz instead of foo.tar.gz?12:21
tilmanxz us the successo to lzma12:21
tilmanxz is the successor to lzma12:22
pedjaI got it the first time ;)12:22
tilmanthough i think there's only two ports who have dist files zipped with xz :D12:22
pedjaso, what is the idea behind it?smaller packages on the iso, or...?12:23
tilmanoh, xz is used by upstream to zip their source tarballs12:23
tilmancrux packages are still packed with gzip12:23
pedjai never heard of xz before.12:24
pedjai'd like to see how xz compares to 7z, my archiver of choice for rarely used files/backup archives.12:33
tilman7z == lzma12:34
tilmanholy shit.12:36
pedja"It looks like hell just froze over." :)12:38
pedjacould it be that MS is willing to play nice with other children?12:39
