prologicyou asked Xorg or googled similar problems with Xorg and your particular hardware ?03:40
prologicit's unlikely anything to do with CRUX03:40
prologicCRUX is quite vanilla03:40
*** lennart has joined #crux03:50
tadzikyeah, I know that04:03
tadzikfor some reason it works after a reboot04:03
tadzikmay be hard to reproduce now04:03
prologicsorry dude, unless someone here has similar hardware we're not gonna be much help to you04:05
tadzikyeah, I know that :)04:05
prologicthere really isn't a great deal to CRUX - pkgutils, rc-style scripts, a kernel and ports04:05
tadzikI know, I'm not new here :)04:05
prologicI didn't think so :)04:06
prologicif you were, you'd be asking how to get the kernel configured correctly  :)04:06
tadzikI was just wondering if maybe some of you have experienced this, I know that some core/udev updates were sometimes... funny04:06
prologicI've never personally run CRUX on a laptop04:07
prologicso I'm not help to you04:07
prologicI've never owned a ltptop till a few months ago, and it's a macbook pro :)04:07
tadzikwell, I'm just gonna hope it never happens again :)04:09

ray1haha yeh, i dont need ssd10:05

prologicmine's actually the Core i7 model10:06
prologicvery nice processor10:06
ray1how much did that cost?10:06
prologiccapable of (apparently) being 4 cores when it wants to be10:06
prologiccost ? lol you don't wanna know10:06
ray1eh, im ok with a relatively low power machine10:07
prologicmount /tmp as a ram disk10:07
ray1as long as it can run firefox, i use consoles for gaming10:07
prologicsome parts of /var too that are written to often10:07
ray1keep costs lower that way10:07
ray1ahh good idea10:07
prologicmaybe move your home dir off the machine to a remote one10:07
prologicand mount to ram disk10:07
prologicanything to save wries10:07
ray1my home is nfs anyway10:07

jaegerI dual boot snow leopard and windows 7 on mine, currently10:15
prologicneeded to run a windows netinstaller that wouldn't work correctly under wine10:15

LukcYes, why not ? I know somebody who uses 4.6. :D14:18
Lukc /o\14:18
kreedI use 4.4.4 ;D14:18
tilman4.5.1 is for crux 2.714:18
tilmanno worries14:18
kreedMay be tommorow I switch to 2.7 ports branch14:19
kreedBecause time for updates is come14:19
tilmanupdating via ports only will probably fail14:20
tilmana bunch of packages broke their ABI14:20
tilmanuse the iso when 2.7 is out14:20
kreedoh, thanks. I don't know about this14:20
kreedBut I make backup today14:21
kreedI can try this :)14:21
Lukckreed, you can't just update safely core, in fact.14:21

telitiHi. Are there any up-to-date iso-images of crux?15:06
telitiOne more question: If I try to start the X server, my system freezes. I have an integrated intel-chip on my lenovo s10e. Could a framebuffer problem cause this?15:07
LukcThere are a lot of problems with Intel chipsets. :'(15:07
tadzikI ain't have one15:07
tadzikteliti: maybe X configuration issue?15:07
tadzikteliti: system freezes, or Xes freeze?15:07
telitiWell, on other distros its workign great, but ...15:08
tadzikdefine: other distros15:08
jaegerteliti: there might be something in /var/log/Xorg.0.log15:08
telitiXes freeze actually ... then I cannot kill it afterwords (since everything is frozen)15:08
tadzikteliti: how about magic sysrq?15:08
jaegerteliti: also,
telitidefine: mandriva, opensuse, *buntus, ...15:08
jaegerlatest is 26 june15:08
telitithx jaeger!15:09
tadzikteliti: they have everything configured by default, so everything does work initially. In CRUX, you have to put some effort into it15:09
telitiwhat is magic sysrq?15:09
tadzike.g. alt + sysrq + b will reboot your system15:09
telitiwell, I come from NetBSD, and I didnt had any problems with it15:09
tadzika + sysrq + k kills everything besides init, IIRC15:09
tilmanbecause netbsd just treats the graphics chip as a dumb frame buffer in vga mode?15:10
RyoShe comes from netbsd, but in peace15:10
telititadzik: your talking about Alt-STRG-DEL?15:10
telitiHey, at least netbsd is working :-)15:11
tadzikteliti: What's STRG?15:11
telitiCTRL in english if im not mistaken15:11
tilmansysrq is ... system request15:11
tilman"s-abf" on your keyboard15:11
tilmansame keycode as print15:11
telitiHmm, didnt know. Thx!15:12
jaegersysrq is also something you have to enable in the kernel15:12
tilmanit's also something that doesn't have commands to unwhack the intel gfx chips afaik :)15:12
jaegerbut it would reboot a whacked session :)15:13
tilmanteliti: what graphics chip does your notebook have?15:13
tilmandon't say "intel"15:13
*** lasso has joined #crux15:13
telitithx for the advice! Ill try again.15:13
telititilman: intel :-)15:13
jaegerthere are quite a few intel chips, though15:14
tilmani asked you not to say intel because we already knew that15:14
teliti*g* intel 945 if im not mistaken15:15
telitiit should be supported ny xf86-video-intel ...15:16
LukcYes and no.15:16
LukcI had a problem that forced me to downgrade the driver…15:17
Lukc(to 2.9.X instead of 2.12.0)15:17
telitithx guys, gotta go. have a nice time15:20

aubicwhat's the solution to the 404-s again?15:54
Rotwangmernilio: btw. your character encoding is wrong15:55
mernilioRotwang: ohh in what respect15:56
mernilioi blame that wireless router.. i dont need to write any scandi15:57
mernilioavian character15:57
Rotwangwhat does wireless router have to do with this?15:58
*** nekrodes has quit IRC15:58
jaegerthe wireless pipe isn't fat enough for extra encoding!15:58
mernilioRotwang: tell me about your life.. it  could be nice for me to know a little about your being!15:59
Rotwangi assert mernilio == mernil15:59
Rotwangif so you should be banned from the internets for life16:00
mernilioi know about that mernil .. i assure you, that is not me!16:00
merniliohaha..  banned from internet for liv16:01
mernilioWell.. he had some bad years.. but hi is coming along!16:02
mernilioRotwang: grr.. why did you say that :-|16:03
merniliowho sat up a birdsnest 1 hour ago... am i a bad person? I made it with love ffs16:04
Lukc“ffs” ?16:04
tadzikfor fsck's sake16:04
jaegerFocused Feasibility Study16:05
mernilioYeah.. go fuck a duck mothafuckers.. i did a birdsnest! :-)16:05
*** jaeger sets mode: +b *!*magnus@*.ornskoldsvik.com16:06
jaegernormally I wouldn't ban someone for random babbling but considering he's already got 4 or 5 other bans in here...16:07
LukcBans are for weak people.16:07
tadzikbans are what ops should be using instead of /ignore16:08
LukcOps should not use /ignore.16:08
LukcAnd bans are here for technical reasons. O:)16:08
jaegerLukc: weak in what way?16:09
*** mernilio was kicked by jaeger (mernilio)16:10
LukcNot physicaly, I mean. Intellectually. (are that the good words ?)16:10
tadzikI wouldn't say so16:11
tadzikban is like "you don't understand that we don't want you? Well, we'll have to force it then"16:11
jaegerin all the times he's visited #crux I don't recall him actually talking about crux. he spends a lot of time talking about random things in very disjointed sentences16:11
tadzikhe needs a hug16:12
LukcI don't understand why we couldn't speak about something else than Crux…16:13
tadzikwell, we can, and we do16:13
LukcAs long as nobody is speaking about Crux, I don't see why such restrictions.16:13
jaegerthat isn't the sole reason he's banned, that was just a comment from me16:13
tadzikbut I think the case is mernillo is just nagging everyone all the time16:13
jaegerhe also resorts to being an asshole when people don't respond to his random babble16:13
jsemernil has been a long-time rambler.16:13
LukcOh. :/16:14
LukcIf you say so…16:14
jseA repeat offender. :P16:14
jaegerthere are 8 bans in this channel. 5 of them I recognize as him. the others might be as well, I'm not sure16:14
jseLooks like 6 of them are due to his actions. :P16:15
jseQuite the honor considering how few bans there have been over the years.16:16
jaegerer, yeah, I see 6 that are definitely him16:16
jaegerindeed :)16:16
* Rotwang is looking for a good sip softphone16:17
Rotwangekiga is definately uot16:17
