Hjodyhello all, i have set up a CRUX install through usb, but on boot it complains about not being able to find initramfs03:25
Hjodyinitramfs exists in /boot/03:25
Hjodyi have also tried setting parameter as initrd=/boot/initramfs03:25
gcovit just happened the same here03:27
pitilloHjody: hello, have you used sepen's script to build the usb stick? wich CRUX version have you used? (with 2.5 worked like a charm here, not tested 2.6rc yet)03:28
*** eintopf_ has quit IRC03:28
Hjodypitillo: yes. used 2.503:29
gcovuhm Hjody, did you run the make_usbdisk on a 64bit host?03:29
Hjodygcov: 32bit03:29
pitilloHjody: and spen's script to build it?03:29
Hjodypitillo: yep03:29
Hjodybuilt fine03:29
Hjodynot sure why it wont boot03:30
Hjodywell find the initrd03:30
gcovi was guessing that my problem was due to the 64bit host used to build the image03:30
pitilloHjody: using it with 2.5 worked fine here03:31
Hjodypitillo: yea i follwed that guide03:32
gcovit stops to boot saying that the initramfs isn't valid03:32
Hjodyhmm ill re-format usb and try once more03:32
pitillostrange, I haven't noticed that here, the only problem I had is when I used dd with a partition instead of a device (in the guide there is a tip about this)03:34
gcovi'm going to retry03:35
gcovnow it says that it couldn't find the ramdisk image03:35
Hjodygcov: yea thats the error i get aswell03:37
gcovi'll try booting with a parted magic and then doing the install in chroot03:39

Hjodysepen: /media/disk/boot/initramfs: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)06:01
Hjodysepen: do i  need to name usb "usbdisk"06:01
Hjodyhmm i guess thats irrelevant seeing as it boots06:02
spaceninjadoes anyone know what's causing firefox to crash when I maximize a flash video? I thought that it was the nvidia driver, but it's been updated now. If it was the driver, it should of been fixed, anyone?06:02
sepenHjody, strange but I'm trying to reproduce it06:04
Hjodysepen: thanks06:07

*** Hjdoy has joined #crux06:14
sepenHjdoy, did you tried with more than one pendrive?06:17
Hjdoysepen: i havent06:18
Hjdoyonly got on drive with me atm06:18
sependid you tried to boot another usb-live distro with it?06:18
Hjdoysepen: gcov was getting the same error06:18
Hjdoysepen: yea boots fine with ubuntu/opensuse06:19
sepenin the same box?06:19
gcovHjdoy, on which distro did you made the usb image?06:19
Hjdoyusing ubuntu06:19
Hjdoyill try reformat usb using gparted06:20
pitillogcov: and you? from crux?06:21
sepenyou don't need partitions on the usb drive06:21
pitillointeresting, here I only tested on a crux host06:21
pitillogcov: do you have a chrooted crux?06:21
pitillogcov: ok, it's hard to test on another distro here06:23
gcovi think that a good idea is to publish a working image06:24
gcovindeed dd should work the same on every distro06:24
pitillothat sounds good too06:24
Hjdoyhmm maybe try dd with fs=51206:24
*** tnut1 has quit IRC06:24
sepengcov, ^^06:24
gcovright sepen06:25
sepenwith I prefer to build my own images to save bandwith usage on crux.nu06:25
gcovdownloading very slowly06:25
gcovdowloading fine now06:25
sepenbut note that you shouldn't use a normal partition with the stick, just use /dev/sda, /dev/sdb, etc. instead of /dev/sda1, ...06:26
gcovyes i've readed it06:27
Hjdoysepen: what would happen if i mapped dd of= to physical hard drive06:27
gcovoh fine my netbook has just built his kernel in 27 minutes06:27
sepenHjdoy, ? you want to damage your hard drive?06:28
Hjdoygcov: 27 min ?06:28
Hjdoyis this on an Atom ?06:28
gcovatom n27006:28
Hjdoytakes about a minute on mine06:30
Hjdoysame CPU06:30
gcovit's impossible06:31
gcovi can guess that you have never built a kernel06:32
Hjdoyeh sorry06:32
dru1dOne minut?06:33
Hjdoymis read your question06:33
Hjdoytakes about 3hours to build the default ubuntu image06:33
dru1dsepen: Your script works with 2.6 iso?06:33

Rotwangthis one is shopped much better14:47
RotwangDaViruz: new address bar is very useful but it causes my hard drive to spin like crazy14:48
Rotwangand it freezes ff14:49
pablohow does prt-get handles dependencies, they arent added to the pkgfile?14:52
Rotwangpablo: dependencies are listen in the Pkgfile header14:53
Rotwang# Depends on:14:53
pabloRotwang: oh, is that interpreted or only a comment?14:55

Rotwangfor pkgmk it's only a comment14:56

tilmanDaViruz: ditto... i hated the craptasticbar in the beginning, but i like it now :P15:04
Rotwangok let me ask you all15:05
Rotwangdoes your disk spin very quickly when you type into adress bar?15:06
Rotwangit looks like firefox reads data cached on disk15:06
Rotwangand it slows down firefox for time being15:06
tilmantry that15:07
Rotwangyeah, now firefox seems to perform better15:13
