frinnstthere are some more fixes:
frinnstReported: 2011-01-26 09:45 PST18:36
*** ulughbegh has quit IRC18:37
entehow does prt-get determine the location of a package it installs?18:43
thrice`repos listed higher up in prt-get.conf  get priority18:43
entethe package, not the port18:44
enteor does it just tell pkgmk to install it afterwards?18:44
thrice`pkgadd :-)18:44
ente(I need to know which one I need to debug :P)18:45
entepkgadd doesn't figure out where the built packages are stored after build18:45
entesome people leave them in the ports dir, some people move them elsewhere18:45
thrice`I think there is a bug about package dir being separate from the port-dir, where prt-get will always build it, even if packages are available in the package dir18:45
enteI am hitting that bug18:45
enteand I think it's a pkgmk bug, hence my question18:46
thrice`hm, really?18:46
entebecause prt-get.conf contains no reference to the package dir18:47
thrice`to me, prt-get should never call pkgmk, since the package is already there18:47
entethere is no reliable way to parse a shellscript, aside from running it18:47
enteand pkgmk.conf is a shellscript18:47
enteI didn't export mine18:48
enteI have a strange setup to split them by ports collection18:49

Romsterente, i split them by $name or $group in my setup and it works fine though i've patched pkgmk to do this.20:36
entetoo tired to do anything about it right now :)20:37
Romsteri could give you the code bloc for that.20:37
Romsterthat's how i get all the files separate in
enteI plan on making an All subdir and hardlinking them all20:39
entebut I'll need to patch pkgmk20:39
enteI don't want to do that right now20:39
Romstereasily done with find and -exec ln20:39
enteI'd prefer to make it with pkgmk20:39
Romsteri don't see much point in doing that.20:40
entenot for the distfiles, for the packages20:40
entedepending on find is an additional step, but I'm too tired to explain why I don't like it, sorry :)20:41
Romsterwell it is interesting but explain the reason behind it when your not tired.20:42
Romsteralso i have a ton of C64 stuff including a datacassette and i've transfered files to my pc ages ago from a 5 1/4 and datacassete20:42
Romsterthough i haven't played any on the real thing or emulator in some time.20:43
enteC64 was before my time :(20:45
enteI sometimes get nostalgic feelings when I unpack my DOS stuff, but even DOS was actually before my time20:45
entethe first OS I ever used was Win 9520:46
Romsteri even have a apple ][e here and a mac classic II, C128D and two Vic 20's20:52
Romsterms-dos 3.3 was when i played with.20:53
Romsteroh and some old tandy computers and amstrads.20:53
Romsterbut i never owned any of those.20:53
Romsterthough they were out before i was.20:54
Romsterbut i liked exotic hardware.20:54
Romsterand i have a passion for dos games and c64 games and the awesome sid chip.20:54
entemy dad has a VC20 (they didn't call it VIC over here to avoid being called names)20:54
Romsteroh wonder what they called it there.20:55
Romsteri ahev soem of the older style C64 breadbox and about 4 of the newer style ones, only tested one as fully working though.20:56
entea friend of mine has a breadbox, he said he fished it out of a garbage can after a storm night, there was dirt and sticks stuck in it, he cleaned it out and it worked like new20:57
enteit's the one I'm going to borrow :P20:57
entehe screwed up the RF modulator though, it sends a strange frequency now20:59
enteI don't have a TV though21:00
ulughbeghi love c64 ;)21:08
Romsteri used to be on lemon64.com21:10
Romsterbefore the site was great gina sisters21:11
ulughbeghlately, thanks to youtube and other streaming sites, it is fun to watch, current demos,21:16
ulughbeghi used to use emulators for that, but emulators usually sucks.21:17
Romsterthere not too bad.21:17
ulughbeghi know but not hundred percent same as real c6421:23
Romstercan never get the sid sound exactly right though21:27
enteyou can get it right21:33
enteby using a real c64 :)21:33
enteor even better: more than one, because every SID sounds different they say :P21:33
Romsteri thought about a catwesel card.21:35
ulughbeghwhat is it for?21:38
ulughbeghit is like hardsid?21:39
Romsterit's for reading images off 5 1/4 and 3 /12 inch disks and has provision for a sid chip21:47
Romsternot jsut c64 but a bunch of formats that the usual ibm controller can't decode.21:48
ulughbeghhmm, i got it, do you have old floppies as archive ?21:49
joacimsome peopel always get butthurt mad at me when i say i prefer the real hardware over emulation :/21:49

enteI agree21:56
entereal hardware rocks :P21:56
enteI hope this makes you feel better :)21:57
joacimit does indeed =)21:57
Romsteri like real hardware but it's nice to be able to fire up a emulator instead of setting up something that's been boxed up.22:00
joacimi can agree with that22:02
joacimplayed some games in a NES emulator just a few weeks ago, but I prefer real hardware when I have the device already hooked up and ready to go.22:06
ulughbeghi agree that too ;)22:07
enteyeah, sure22:12
enteit's just that I prefer real hardware, if I can get my hands on it :)22:13
Romsteror if you lack the hardware.22:16
Romsterlike i have no nes22:16
entethe guy I told you about, who fished that c64 out of the garbage has a NES :P22:17
enteand a SNES, and a dreamcast and some other funny stuff22:18
*** ulughbegh has quit IRC22:18
joacimI'd get NES myself, but people want an arm and a leg for theirs.22:18
enteI buy another gameboy advance, I broke mine and they are dirt cheap22:19
enteactually, the gameboy is fine, but the LCD isn't22:20
joacim170 euro for a used PAL region NES with 3 games22:20
joacimin norway22:20
joacimi'm sure i can get one for free, if i keep my eyes out22:21
Romsterfunny that, they must be very popular.22:21
entemaybe try your local flea market22:22
joacimyeah. that or ebay22:23
enteebay is likely to be more expensive22:24
joacimcheaper than my norwegian options actually22:30
joacimbut a flea market or a dumpster would still be better22:30
*** ulughbegh has joined #crux22:30
* ente nods22:31
enteor US ebay22:31
entemaybe it's still cheaper with additional $30 shipping :)22:32
entealthough then it'll be NTSC22:32
joacimthats my thinking too22:32
joacimthe internet tells me that PAL releases from that period tend to be horrible, so ntsc is prefered22:34
jaegerI've still got a NES around here somewhere22:35
*** ulughbegh has quit IRC22:47
entejoacim: still up or up again?22:59
joacimi'm still up22:59
enteso am I :)23:00
entegood morning23:00
joacimcouldnt sleep23:00
enteI can. I'm awfully tired...23:01
joacimi'm getting there.23:01
*** ulughbegh has joined #crux23:01
joacimshould close my laptop and try to sleep again, but...23:02
