thorpeHey guys, just wanted to get a bit of a feel for how active this distro might be. Its hard to tell from yoursite, are things alive and well?02:19
pitillothorpe: check the development section and you will have an idea about how active it is02:24
thorpeYeah, im just looking at the core timeline now.02:26
thorpeI'm kinda looking for a nice small freindly distro where I might actually be able to eventually help out.02:26
thorpeI guess all I can really do is install, start working and see how I go.02:27
thorpeI'm a bit over Debian and Gentoo.02:28

prologicjaeger, thank you :)10:18
prologicI almost called a freenode staff member in :)10:18
ente <- damn, I wanted to recommend ubuntu as a distribution which is open to gay users10:18
prologicdo you have edit access on the channel acl ?10:18
jsea "homosexual linux user" yet not gay. I'm confused now.10:28
prologicjaeger, might I suggest adding the mask *!*@freenode/staff/* to the channel acl via chanserv ?10:29
jseGotta love the persistence of mernil.10:34
prologiche's a fool10:34
prologicsomething definitely wrong with him10:34
jseThe online equivalent of a class clown.10:35
jseUnfortunately it's so bad, calling him a troll would demean the artform :D10:37
prologicindeed I agree10:37
jaegerprologic: I don't have that level of access, sorry10:48
*** Rotwang has joined #crux10:48
prologicjaeger, who does ?11:01
* prologic might look that up later when he stops thinking about code11:03
jaegerpli, looks like. we'll probably have to get staff to change that11:04
prologiche's the only one ?11:05
prologicdefinitely get staff to fix that :)11:05
jaegernot sure yet, reading the access flags11:05
prologicafaik either A or hmm11:05
prologiccan't remember11:06
jaegerooh, looks like several of us have that flag after all11:06
prologicf and F11:06
prologicf is needed to change the channel access list11:06
jaegeryeah, found it already11:06
prologicI'm not able to view the list myself11:07
prologicdo you have +f ?11:07
prologicadd the freenode staff mask above :)11:07
jaegerwith that said, what does adding freenode/staff to the acl get you?11:07
prologicif you guys are away/afk11:08
prologicfreenode staff can do something :)11:08
prologicthey normally don't unless the channel has the staff mask added11:08
prologicI'd give them enough priveleges to kick/ban/op at least11:08
jaegerwill give it some thought, would probably be useful11:09
prologicor you could give me some privelges :) haha11:09
prologicmaybe auto op on join :)11:09

entegajim gets the name of my distribution right14:48
prologicwhat's gajim ?14:49
enteI have no /etc/lsb_release, no lsb* in $PATH, uname -a does not contain CRUX and now I'm wondering where that information is saved14:49
enteprologic: GTK XMPP client14:49
teK_ente: gcc? :)14:49
enteteK_: how so?14:50

enteit says "CRUX version 2.6"14:51
prologicwhat's wrong with pidgin btw ? :)14:51

prologicwhat's so great about gajim anyway ?14:53
entewhy is there a /usr/bin/crux? o.O14:53
prologicdoes it support msn and icq ?14:53
enteprologic: it supports wide parts of XMPP14:53
thrice`ente, why not? :)14:53
prologicente, it's our way of identifying our os :)14:53
enteand no, it doesn't... or well... indirectly. over transports14:53
thrice`everyone else went to /etc, we try to be different :>14:53
tadzikgtkabber has lua scripting!14:53
prologicoh big deal :)14:54
entegajim has python scripting14:54
tadzikno it doesn't :)14:54
prologicpidgin has python plugin support (and perl and whatever else) :)14:54
enteand yes, gajim also sucks... but pidgin sucks balls14:54
prologicoh bite me :)14:54
enteprologic: read the pidgin source and/or ever tried doing anything with libpurple?14:54
enteit's not threadsafe and the code is complete garbage14:54
prologicente, no and I dn't care to14:54
prologicit works (tm) :)14:54
thrice`hm, i've not tried gajim14:55
prologicI have no use for libpurple other than it's used by pidgin14:55
teK_at least if there are no stupid security bug_s_ wwrt Smileys...14:55
entedamn, that's many ops here now :D14:55
prologicwe're kepign the pesky idiots out :)14:55
entewhat qualifies a person as op? contrib maintainer?14:55
prologicthe homosexual non-gay linux trolls :)14:56
thrice`merlin was coming back :>14:56
prologicwe're special :P14:56
teK_ente: being awesome?14:56
entethrice`: I know, I tried to tell tilman but he wasn't there :P14:56
ente <- non-gay homosexual linux14:56
teK_new gimp release14:57
enteoh no14:57
entefunny... I don't have dbus running14:57
enteCRUX is the first distribution that does not require me to have dbus running to be able to use a graphical system14:57
entegajim whines a bit, and gimp only works if I start it, but everything else runs fine14:57
teK_no I'm fast.14:58
teK_aaah non-fast forward git tree14:58
cruxbot[opt.git/2.6]: gimp: 2.6.8 -> 2.6.914:59

luxhevening friendly cruxers14:59
teK_hello luxh14:59
enteOMG gajim distro detection code is madness14:59
teK_nothing special.14:59
*** Rotwang1 has joined #crux15:00
prologicente, yeah I don't think dbus is a strict requirement by most things15:00
enteprologic: gimp.15:00
*** [1]pocket_rocket has joined #crux15:01
enteand too many things depend on it15:01
teK_wicd iirc15:01
enteI don't run gnome or so.. fortunately15:01
enteyeah, wicd15:01
teK_and wicd is quite nice15:01
prologicI don't run gnome either15:01
tadzikno, there's just nothing better15:01
entealthough... if I was a gnome user, I'd be a dbus fan and I'd want it in the kernel15:01
enteso I guess I'm happy that I don't use gnome15:01
enteunfortunately, people who don't like dbus are a minority and the number of GNOMists is raising15:02
entewhat do you think of dbus? I think, it's not a good way to do IPC15:03
*** pocket_rocket has quit IRC15:03
*** [1]pocket_rocket is now known as pocket_rocket15:03
enteand it's not very UNIXy (KISS) to send XML over sockets15:03
tadzikblah blah blah15:03
entemy coreutils can't cat on sockets and parse XML15:03
tadzikit's not about coreutlis15:03
tadzikit's a high level way to pass stuff, period15:04
tadziknothing coreutils close, nothing UNIXy15:04
tadzikwant simple Unixy crap, go Plan915:04
enteyes... I'd like plan9ish ipc in *NIX15:04
prologicit is useful in it's own right - even if you don't like it15:04
tadzikwith the web browser advice "don't browse the web and actually get the job done"15:04
enteprologic: how so?15:05
tadzikPlan9 or DBus?15:05
prologicit provides a common ipc mechanism for desktop apps15:06
prologicno one said you have to use it :)15:06
prologicexcept for apps that "require" it15:06
enteactually, I thought about patching the dbus dependency out of wicd15:07
*** Rotwang1 has quit IRC15:07
tadzikI thought about writing my own network manager daemon from scratch15:07
tadzikthat would kick out dbus also15:08
entealso good idea. (how) can I help you?15:08
tadzikknow some Perl?15:08
prologicdo it in python and you'll have a 3rd (me) :)15:08
tadzikor better: lots of stuff abou wifis and wpa_supplicant?15:08
entea little bit15:08
prologicI know much about wifi15:09
tadzikI'll handle the Perl part, I'm just short in knowledge about wifis15:09
enteprologic: wicd is python...15:09
tadzikwell, python is one of the main reason I don't want wicd :)15:09
tadzikalthough I'm not sure python is really the reason for wicd to be such a resource hog15:09
entedepends how you define "know about wifis" and "know about networks", and what level the knowledge you need is15:09
*** Rotwang1 has joined #crux15:09
entewicd is still better than nm15:10
entenm is utter garbage I never got to work15:10
tadziknm has some distro-dependant crap, no?15:10
entemight be... probably only works on ubuntu15:10
tadzikente: well, methinks the hardest part is analysing iwlist scan output and generating wpa_s configs15:10
Rotwang1nm is crap15:11
tadzikso, are we writing stuff?15:11
tadzikalso, about the things wicd is missing -- wifi networks priorities15:12
enteanalysing iwlist sounds like "write 3 lines of perl regexp" which does not sound like "hard part"15:12
tadzikwell, parsing is not the problem15:12
tadzik(oh god, I just realised how awesome it'd be with Perl6 grammars)15:12
tadzikthe problem is generating an appropriate wpa_s config for the network15:13
enteI know nothing about Perl6 and very little about Perl 5 although a friend of mine wanted to convince me to learn it... (and I wrote a little bit)15:13
entetadzik: really? I don't think that's too hard either15:13
tadzikente: if it's not too hard for you, we can probably work something out15:14
tadzikI know very little about these stuff15:14
tadzikso, are we writing something?15:15
entenot now, I'm supposed to code java™ for my university15:16
tadziknot now, I'm supposed to be learning for my exams now15:16
