jkramerHrm, any ideas how I can set different wallpapers on both screens?03:57
jkramerCan I address specific screens with the DISPLAY variable?03:57
pitillojkramer: doesn't that depend on your wm?04:00
jkramerI don't think so, I use a wallpaper setting in .xinitrc before the wm is started04:01
jkramerfeh --bg-scale to be precise04:02
teK_* suggests that compiz supports setting different Wallpapers04:05

*** lasso|qt has quit IRC04:18
jkramernitrogen works fine, but you have to use the git version, 1.3 and 1.4 (there's a port from romster for 1.3) don't compile with our crux' libpng04:19

abursukhello. i need help in installation CRUX x86_64. i could not compile my kerbel good, becuse during boot i recive kernel panic: could not mount my root fs. four day ago i start to install crux, and i try to decide my problem so many times, but it is hasno result. so, pls, can someone look at my config kernel..maybe i forget about some little option and have to f*ck my brain so many time useless...05:06
abursuksorry for my bad English, i'm from Ukraine )05:07
abursukand i cant copy my config to becuse it is very big05:08
tadzikdo you have proper fs support configured?05:10
tadzikusing ata/atapi driver or this scsi one?05:10
tadzikand are they built-in (not modules)?05:10
abursukfo all05:11
tadzikyou have both drivers built-in? atapi and scsi?05:12
abursukno atapi, sata, yes scsi and sata are both build-on05:12
tadzikso using sda or hda?05:12
tadzikcould you paste the exact error?05:13
abursukyes, wait a sec pls05:13
abursukKernel panic - Not Syncing VFS: Unable to mount root fs unknown-block(8,2). select right parameter for "root" option from list^ and many undiscrabeble symdols05:15
abursukVFS is built-on kernel too05:16
tadzikCould you show the grub/lilo config?05:16
tadzikand tell us what is the partition label (sdaX)05:17
abursukoh, i can show it, but i cant wtite basic parameter from my mind05:19
abursukand noapic, readonly etc05:20
tadzikis it grub or lilo?05:20
tadziklilo I guess05:20
abursukon my HD i have 3 partitions: sda1 - swap, sda2 - root(reiser), sda3 - /files(jfs)05:20
tadzikwell, I have no idea about it, but looks like the root=/ line is broken somehow05:21
tadzikthis worries me:  unknown-block(8,2)05:21
tadzikI mean, (0,2) ok, but 8? :F05:21
abursukyes, but yesterday i install archlinux, and grub, and try to make kernel, and have similar error05:22
abursukepic fail..05:22, if I may05:23
tadzikespecially epic05:23
tadzikwell, in grub it's hd(0,1) in this case, I don't know much about lilo05:24
abursukyes 0,105:24
tadzikI'm quite confused 'bout this (8,2)05:25 may be because i have flash drive and mp3 player in usb port?)05:26
abursukbut they are sdb and sdc..05:26
abursuknot sda05:26
tadzikI don't think that'd make any difference, but how about removing them for a while, just to be sure?05:27
abursukoke, i'll try that. sorry i've just finished to make my another one kernel, ant have to try boot)05:29

strawa catfish11:52
treachA crow, "Crax linux". (sorry, bad pun, probably takes a native to get..)11:52
tadzikCrox would be nic11:53
Rotwangstraw: noo11:53
tadzikand in the logo there will be a tux with gap between his teeth11:53
strawRotwang: not?11:53
strawtadzik: ;p11:53
Rotwangi thought abou crax as crux + slax livecd ;D11:54
tadzikalright, some laptop-making company which is nice. Or better – laptops you have which are nice. Anyone with a helpy hand?11:54
tadzikslax is horrible11:54
tadzikI've been using it for like few months every day, it's stability became legendar in my sorroundance11:55
treachRotwang: it's a really bad pun, in swedish ravens and crows are said to "kraxa" when they make noises.11:56

*** Zaba_ has joined #crux12:37
brndis it wrong to install 2.5, change the /etc/ports/<rep>.conf to point to 2.6 and do a prt-get sysup? :)12:37
*** tadzik has joined #crux12:38
treachbrnd: yes12:38
thrice`not wrong, but it sure is the long way12:38
treachwrong, as described12:39
tilmanand what the various inject_package/remove_package etc in
treachsomeone set him up the bomb?12:39
brndis there a howto anywhere? i don't know how to update my 2.5 to 2.6 "the clean" way.12:39
thrice`burn cd, boot cd, select "upgrade"  :)12:40
brndno local access for me :s12:40
thrice`(the handbook has an upgrade section)12:40
* Rotwang sent 2 job applications today \:D/12:40
brndyeah i know, but the upgrade section does not handle "remote boxes with old rescue discs" :s12:41
treachbrnd: there is a howto, someplace, for how to upgrade your toolchain via the ports. You should minimum read it before trying anything funny.12:41
*** tadzik has quit IRC12:41
brnddeal, will do. do you have an idea where i can find it? :)12:41
treachit's somewhere in the wiki irc, nick wrote it.12:41
jseGet the 2.6 release iso, then mount it as a loop and get the packages off it.12:42
brndit's not like i am all whining because it's not working. i am tossing around isos and rescue-requests for nearly a week now :<12:42
treachnobody is calling you a whiner faict.12:43
thrice`we're trying to help :)  the wiki is pretty small, though, and can be browsed in ~30 seconds12:43
brndyeah, i read that. but i can't mount all the stuff and chroot into, because my rescue-discs kernel is too old.12:43
thrice`there's not much you can do; 2.6 needs at least a 2.6.26 kernel (udev)12:44
*** tadzik has joined #crux12:44
thrice`so, if the host kernel is less than that, the upgrade will die12:44
jseThe point about mounting the iso through a loop is to access the packages. You can then upgrade them by issuing something like for i in *; do pkgadd -u $i; done12:45
brndthis is what i've done: installed 2.5 via rescue disc and got a new kernel ( this is what i can repeat all night long, the problem is to upgrade that to 2.6 without breaking it (again).12:45
jseIt's not a guaranteed way, although it has worked for me.12:45
brndupgrading the pkgs is enough?12:45
brndi have the packages unpacked in my /home12:46
jseThen you have to check for broken libs with revdep from prtutils and so forth.12:46
brndrevdep! its part of prtutils, k. now i know where to get that :D12:46
brndthanks! will try that tonight12:46
jseBefore revdep you should probably run rejmerge as well. There are some changes with files in /etc.12:47
brnduh yeah, rejmerge always complains about /etc/ is it save to upgrade that, since i can't look into it? :D12:49
jseI don't know for sure whether or not it's safe to blindly change.12:49
jseldconfig gets executed everytime you install or upgrade a port imho.12:50
*** cdewq has joined #crux12:50
brndalright, thank you. will setup 2.5 then tonight and try it that way you suggested.12:50
*** Zaba has quit IRC12:50

jseI probably would settle for a different distribution if I had to run a remote server that wasn't readily accessible.12:57
*** tadzik has quit IRC12:58
jseOf course crux is perfectly suitable for such use, however it is not exactly optimized from an installation perspective to such environments. :p12:58
treachwhat do you mean, isn't -fomg-optimize good enough for you? :p12:59
*** tadzik has joined #crux12:59
jsebut I want my USE flags! :(12:59
Rotwangi always update crux releases without dl'ing additional iso12:59

tilmanj^2: i do! :D14:00
peleczek___i would like to install crux for the first time. i'm not totally linux newbie but also not very good at it. is there an option of X automatic installation? or do i have to do it from console.14:00
j^2peleczek___: try linuxfromscratch, or ubuntu first14:01
j^2peleczek___: crux might be a little frustrating :(14:01
peleczek___i know ubuntu, debian14:01
tadzikpeleczek___: if you are afraid of console, then CRUX is not for you14:01
tilmani think he runs ubuntu right now ;)14:01
tadzikfurthermore - this is ubuntu livecd :>14:01
Rotwangpeleczek___: go for it!14:02
peleczek___i'm not afraid of console - i use dwm as my primary window manager14:02
Rotwangcrux is for you then114:02
tadzikso why are you afraid of X installation? ;]14:02
Rotwangdont worry, everything will be ok14:02
jaegerYou could try it in a VM first and see what you think14:02
tilmanreassuring Rotwang is reassuring14:03
j^2jaeger: you and your logic!14:03
jaegerI know, crazy talk14:03
j^2that's a sooner for you :P14:03
tilmanwhen i was your age, i had to walk 20 miles to run stuff in a vm!14:03
peleczek___tadzik it's the first time installing x from scratch. my printer is dead. i just don't want to reboot computer every 2-3 minutes to load livecd for web browser14:04
tilmanthe crux handbook is available on the CD14:04
tadzikwhy would you want web browser in X?14:04
tadziklinks is fine, and links -g in framebuffer even shows images14:04
tilmanthen again, the crux handbook doesn't explain how to setup X14:04
peleczek___links :)14:04
peleczek___i was going to tell that i don't like links :)14:05
tilmani think chances are quite good that x will run OOTB, aren't they?14:05
peleczek___i tried few console web browserr and it was very frustrating14:06
Rotwangive got exhaust leakage i think :c14:06
* Rotwang is happy to be alive14:06
peleczek___ok i will try it anyway14:06
Rotwangthe question is14:07
Rotwangwhat should i add to my fuel to enhance it with stronger smell or colour14:07
Rotwangim serious14:07
tadzikmaybe sugar? :>14:08
tadzikWhy would you want a better taste of fuel?14:08
tilmanRotwang: you think your exhaust pipe has a leak and it's leaking *in* your car?14:08
tilmanor wtf are you talking about?14:08
Rotwangtilman: ive got smoke comming from engine into drivers cabin]14:08
tadzikor smell or colour, whatever14:09
Rotwangguys in ##cars told me it may be exhaust leakage14:09
tilmansounds dangerous14:09
Rotwangso i need to be sure wheather it is exhaust or not14:09
Rotwangtilman: but i look incredibly badass with smoke coming uot of windows ;D14:09
*** peleczek___ has quit IRC14:10
Rotwangbut srsly, i need to know how to change smell or colour of exhaustion gases14:10
tilman##cars probably knows better than #crux14:11
Rotwangtheyve told me to use seafoam14:11
Rotwangill try with it i guess :\14:12
*** peleczek__ has joined #crux14:13
thrice`seafoam into your throttle body?14:13
thrice`seafoam is a product that burns carbon debris, I don't think it'll help much14:14
Rotwangthrice`: it produces a lot of white smoke14:15
Rotwangso if it comes into my cabin, i know it is exhaust leak14:15
thrice`if you inject it directly into the throttle body while the engine is running, it will.  this is always a dangerous thing :)14:15
Rotwangthrice`: do you know any better solution?14:16
thrice`that process can damage your oxygen sensors, and also ruin your spark plugs14:16
Rotwangive got old diesel, what do i care? :c14:16
thrice`aah.  well, older cars will be more likely to have their O2 sensors killed in the process14:17
thrice`seafoam rips carbon from the intake, and as it's getting burned / flushed out, the O2 sensors can get destroyed if there is enough carbon14:17
thrice`eg, the car is much older14:17
tilmanRotwang: what kind of car? how old?14:18
Rotwangtilman: vw jetta 2, i think its about my age, 2314:19
thrice`I did "the seafoam treatment" just a couple months ago :)14:19
Rotwangthrice`: ohh ;]14:19
tilmanholy crap :D14:19
thrice`you remove the air intake-hose from your throttle-body, and dump sea-foam in while the engine is running.  you have to go extremely slow, or you'll hydro-lock the enginer :)14:19
thrice`though, as it burns, away, it does produce extremely white smoke for about 2 minutes14:20
strawI have a little problem. My C program filled up my /. No quotas set of course. 20b left. My program created a 540 MiB file which fills up the memory. It should on be like some bytes. Anyway.. what could I do without killing Xorg?14:21

jaegerI've got 3 VMs running right now on this machine, 2 CRUX and 1 Ubuntu14:56
thrice`2 crux!  awesome14:57
jaegerone for building ISOs and one for building gnome :)14:57
clarejaeger: Hmm, I may have not pressed the right buttons to get them installed.How will I know they are in?14:57
jaegerclare: when you press the button that says something like "install guest additions" what it does is mount the guest additions ISO to the VM, so from there you'd have to install them like an app14:57
jaegerwith a windows guest I imagine it'll pop up an autorun14:58
jaegerwith a linux guest you run something like VBoxAdditions-Linux-amd64.bin (this isn't the exact name, from memory)14:58
jaegerthrice`: also have a pfSense VM but it's off right now :)14:59
clarejaeger: thank you, It is not here but at work. However I have just got a machine big enough to do it here so will try here15:00
jaegernp, hope it helps :)15:01
jaegerIf you're configuring a linux guest, you'll need to edit or recreate your xorg.conf so the video driver in use is "vboxvideo"15:01

clareThe only reason to want to upgrade was that this laptop would not make new windows in evilwm; (I cheated a bit, made lots and moved them around)15:29

*** tadzik has joined #crux15:32

treachwell, 50G is 50G no matter how you look at it, and it's still a useable amount of space17:04
jkramerBut software, movies, games, ... get bigger, so the use of the space decreases17:05
