Romsterrebuilds ant package that's got broken library links01:08

tilmanis this type of perl footprint mismatch expected: ?05:49
tilmani mean the location of Error.pm05:49
tilmanit was moved out of site_perl05:50
*** aubic has quit IRC06:05
jueindeed, looks wrong for me06:14
juetilman: strange, works for me without the footprint mismatch06:21
juetilman: is your perl up-to-date, might it be that you are using 5.12.1?06:25
tilmanright, that's possible06:28
tilmanjue: that's probably it. thanks06:28

ThePubhmm, mouse/kb don't work in xorg using wmii but they do in the supplied openbox.  using evdev already by default, so according to the message in topic it should be OK.06:56
tilmanif they work in one wm but not in another, it's ziomg-likely a problem with the wm06:56
ThePubI would believe that as well :)  Just never seen such an issue in wmii, it's probably one of the simplest things out there.06:58
tilmanFalcon|: are you the owner of the falcony ports repo?07:00

Falcon|tilman: nope07:24
* Rotwang considers switching switching to tiling wm07:27
Rotwangbut it would have to be also good with graphical apps07:28
ThePubI've been using wmii on debian for years and love it.  There are corner cases where it doesn't work well, but usually there are ways around that if you're willing to work with it.07:28
jueI'd say the most sophisticated is xmonad, but it's haskell ...07:33
tilmanyay haskell :)07:35
jueif you like how it's work, you might be happy with scrotwm, it mimics basic xmonad, meaning same layout/keybindings etc.07:35
cruxbot[opt.git/2.7]: git: updated to
juebut you need some endurance to get used with a tiling wm ;)07:37
Rotwangjue: I used awesome some time ago07:39
tadzik  I'm happy with awesome07:39
Rotwangbut got annoyed afrer constant changes in config files07:44
Rotwangevery new release introduced something new that broken compatibility with earlier config versions07:45
jueI looked at it once, but it has far to deps for me07:45
*** lasso has quit IRC07:47
*** lasso has joined #crux07:48
*** tmcb has joined #crux08:09
tmcbhi there08:10
tmcbjust a question08:10
tmcbis someone able to change the default shell via chsh?08:10
tmcbi'm receiving the message: "you may not change the shell for '<username>'"08:11
tilmantmcb: seems busted indeed08:12
tmcbi changed thru root08:12
tmcbnow it seems to work with zsh08:13
thrice`   (oldie?) :)08:18
juetmcb: works for me, as a normal user you can only change your own shell, but not the one for other users08:20
tilmanjue: i'm running zsh. 'chsh -s /bin/bash tilman' fails for me, too. /bin/bash is in /etc/shells of course08:22
tilmanand /usr/bin/chsh is setuid root08:22
joacimsudo -s08:23
*** tmcb has quit IRC08:23
juehmm, works with bash08:23
*** Rotwang has quit IRC08:25
*** Ovim|afk_nA is now known as Ovim-Obscurum08:29
*** lasso has quit IRC08:34
*** tmcb has joined #crux08:46
entethrice`: hahaha08:46
tmcbjue: i tried to change my own shell, indeed08:47
tmcbbut it was not working, it worked misteriously only after i changed my default shell to zsh08:48
tmcbnow i tested here and it began to work after i added zsh to /etc/shells08:50
tmcbbut it is still strange...08:50
tmcbis chsh intelligent to the point that if there's not a shell that's not sh or bash, it does not allow you to change the shell? i don't think so08:51
tadziknope. I've changed my shell to zsh via chsh08:51
tadzikbut it was so long ago I don't even remember whether it was from root or what ;)08:52
tmcbbut zsh was already on /etc/shells?08:52
tadzikI have no idea08:52
tadzikI think it should be, no?08:52
tadzikit's there now08:53
tmcbi'll put the relevant info in a pastebin, just a moment08:53
*** ThePub has quit IRC09:00
tadzikso what's the problem?09:02
*** mike_k has joined #crux09:04
*** mike_k_ has quit IRC09:07
tmcbtake a look there, when zsh is commented out chsh refuses to work even before knowing which shell i'm going to choose09:11
enteseems weird09:14
tmcbthat makes me assume that (i.e. i'm too lazy so look the source code so i think) chsh is intelligent and knows that choosing sh or bash makes no difference since sh is a symlink to bash09:15
juewell, looks like that chsh fails if the shell your are using currently is not in /etc/shells09:16
entetmcb: I think bash behaves differently when called as sh09:17
*** oddjoker has joined #crux09:17
tmcbjue: that happened even before i changed my shell09:17
tmcbi.e. when i was using sh09:18
tmcbthat is in /etc/shells by default09:19
jueat least it's reproducible for me that chsh fail if the shell you are using is not in /etc/shells09:24
tmcbsomeone that uses the default shell could try to reproduce it just for curiosity :)09:27
tmcbente: i really dunno09:28
juethere's another condition:09:28
jueor your shell in /etc/passwd is not in /etc/shells09:29
jueat least all of it makes perfect sense ;)09:30
tmcbwell, i'll change my shell back, try to reproduce what happened before and put the info available if i succeed to reproduce09:30
tmcbwell, i was not able to reproduce09:33
tmcbit should be tested in a default install09:33
tmcbjust to confirm09:34
tmcbor maybe with a new user09:34
tmcbjust a moment, i'll try that09:34
pedjahow serious is vertical banding on a crt monitor?09:37
pedjanice, wavy, vertical lines09:37

thosch97i have a problem with crux 2.7, running in virtualbox 409:45
thosch97when i boot, i get a kernel panic09:45
thosch97a friend of me told me that the module for the controller is not compiled into the kernel09:46
Zabadoes your kernel start screaming and running away from you?09:46
Zababe more specific about what the panic is, please.09:46
thosch97i already asked in lq:
thosch97see the thread in lq09:46
thosch97i made a screenshot09:46
Zabacould be a missing controller driver, yes09:47
Zabait can't find 'sda'09:47
thosch97but i dont find it in the make menuconfig menu09:47
Zabavbox supports several different IDE controllers, which one are you using?09:47
thosch97it's nothing special, just virtualbox09:48
thosch97there is nothing else to choose, just ahci09:48
