cptngood morning01:25
pitillohello cptn, good morning01:30
cptnhi pitillo, long time no see! how are things around here?01:31
pitillotrue, it's a pleasure to see you again here. Things are going fine, people is working hard to get the new release working01:32
pitillothere are a lot of good talks from devs and users, seems that there is more people who met CRUX this lasts months01:33
cptncool, good to hear01:33
pitillohow are you? are all things fine there?01:33
cptnyeah, things are good :-)01:34
pitillogreat, glad to hear that :)01:34
cptnlacking time to do all I'd like to, but I guess that happens to everyone :-)01:34
cptnjust took the git user's survey earlier
cptnand it said "unless one uses source-based distribution like Gentoo, CRUX, or SourceMage [...]"01:35
cptnso I though "hey, you should hang out in #crux today" :-)01:35
pitillotrue, I think that the hard part of this is the time... work, studies, family... but people try to mix and make a little time hole for CRUX01:39
pitillonice, seems that people start knowing a bit more about CRUX... giving time to time will be good to let them know a bit more (and keeping a good work like people here is doing, it will be better), without being a focus for this distribution01:42
cptnyeah, seems so01:43
cptnwell, in any case CRUX' user base has always been quite stable01:43
cptnalthough small01:43
cptnwhen was it someone predicted it's dying?01:44
pitilloummmm user base and server base with a good admin behind too (IMHO)01:44
pitillodoes someone predicted that?01:44
pitillomay be CRUX was dying for him...01:44
pitilloI would like to see the topic in this channel which I saw the first day I came here... I don't know who wrote it, but he wrote the truth... ("Welcome to the temple of knowledge...")01:45
pitillogood thread... xD01:46
pitillosomething like a "CRUX policy" discussion... but really far to ensure that a distro is dying...01:48
cptnheh, yeah01:50
cptnwow, I don't know how much time I wasted in discussions like this01:50
pitillogood told... wasted time. It's a personal decision, just use it or don't use it, but tell it's dying... a bit surprising01:53
mhiHmm. Why would I get only 88 colors, although I compiled urxvt with 256 colors and set TERM to rxvt-256colors?01:59
cptnaccording to you'll need to create your own terminfo file02:01
cptnnot sure if that's still relevant, but worth a try02:01
mhiargs, X11 primary selection isn't working :> (just installed CRUX yesterday)02:02
mhibut thanks for the pointer!02:02
mhiHmm. It shouldn't be needed, since core/ncurses already provides the right terminfo file. (compared the blog entry with: infocmp -L rxvt-256color)02:28
*** cippp has joined #crux03:02
mhicptn: Args. The patch wasn't updating the configure script and thus I missed a compile option.03:08
cptnoh :-/03:08
cptnso is it working now?03:08
mhiyup :)03:09
mhiMaybe you could take a short look at and tell me if it's ok that way.03:10
cptnlooks good to me03:12
cptnbut I'm probably not the best person to judge this these days :-)03:12
mhi:) Thanks nevertheless!03:13
mhiBTW, what's the best way to clean /usr/ports from downloaded stuff? A little script using 'pkgmk -c' in each port dir?03:26
pitillomhi: using pkgmk vars to put sources and packages in other location. To clean up the ports directory when you don't split those vars in other location can be done with find, looking for packages and sources03:28
cptnprtsweep / prtwash from prtutils can do that too03:29
pitillogood to know, I never used them (taking a look now)03:30
ente :>03:30
mhiAh, thanks :)03:31
enteusrports reads like us-airports03:33
mhiWhen I had my personal httpup repo in the past.. I used a script to HTMLify my /usr/ports/local directory. What was the name of it? :>03:33
* ente never had a httpup repo03:34
entedoes httpup have any advantages over rsync?03:34
cptnmhi: portspage did that03:34
mhiente: Well, I like it when I can check the Pkgfile online03:34
cptnente: it only requires an http server03:34
mhicptn: ah, thanks!03:34
cptnor maybe portpage03:34
enteah, yeah03:35
cptnente: rsync is more efficient, but not everyone runs an rsyncd03:35
mhiah, it's even on the PrtUtils wiki page.. shame on me :]03:35
entecptn: I meant, other than that :D03:37
enteI can host someone's rsync ports if they want03:37
enteI love rsyncd03:38
enteit's so easy to set up compared to ftpds03:38
cptnalso, historically there was only cvsup and httpup support originally03:39
cptnand hardly anyone ran an cvsupd :-)03:39
cptnwow, now I'm feeling old :-)03:39
entewe ain't freebsd? :p03:39
tilmanomg it's cptn03:42
tilmancptn: hi :)03:42
cptnhi tilman!03:42
enteahoi cptn! :D03:42
cptntilman: how are things?03:42
enteah, you're Johannes :D03:43
enteI didn't even know your IRC nick03:43
entenice to meet you03:43
cptnente: yeah, there's still the quickdep issue open...03:45
cptnI'm sorry, time just flies :-(03:45
enteno need to be sorry, it's not really urgent03:46
tilmancptn: pretty good03:48
tilmancptn: you're not working on slim anymore, are you? :p03:51
cptnbut I might still have commit access :-)03:51
cptnno, I was removed from the list of developers03:52
cptnapparently it's used in Chromium OS :-)03:53
tilmanhah, cool03:54

littleomarjse: Thanks mate. Do you happen to know if it works "well"?05:56
jseCan't say anything else about it, sorry.05:56
jseHaven't used it personally since I don't have 64-bit hardware yet. :P05:57
jseI'm quite sure some have used it and said it generally works.05:58
