cruxbot[opt.git/2.7]: [notify] apache: update to 2.2.2003:41
cruxbot[opt.git/2.7]: jre: update to 1.7.003:41
frinnstwell, firefox 6.0.1, but no nss :>04:00
frinnstmaybe dump nspr/nss completely? they are NEVER in sync with firefox-releases04:00
frinnstor build from the firefox-tarball, but thats gay04:01
Romsteri'm at the idea of dropping firefox it's getting more retarded everyday04:10
juehmm, 3 other ports are depending on nss04:11
Romstercan't ya just let firefox use it's nss and leave the other nss on the system?04:11
entewas nss even changed?04:14
*** aarchvile has joined #crux04:16
frinnstyeah, i wouldnt remove nss.. even i have a port that depends on it! :)04:24
frinnstmozilla is such a fucking mess04:24
teK_firefox' gonna lose quite some market share to chrom(e|ium) I bet04:25
frinnsti cant stand chromium04:25
teK_I like it very much04:26
frinnstits ui is more retarded than all mozilla-issues combined :)04:26
teK_conversion took < 3 days after some 7-8 years of FF usage :)04:26
teK_anyone else getting a hp touchpad?04:27
frinnstnot I04:29
Romsteri'd jump out of firefox but i use some of the plugins and they don't work in other browsers.04:32
Romsterit's a shame they can't be stand alone modules that can work in other browsers though some common API04:33
frinnstmost browsers support netscape plugins?04:35
Romsteronly some.04:35
Romsterbut firefox plugins?04:36
frinnstextensions? ah04:36
teK_I miss AdBlock+ and a better Cookie management04:36
Romsteryes those.04:36
Romsteradblock would go good as some iptables module for blocking ads04:36
frinnstwell they have introduced a api in newer firefox versions apparently, so they wont break with every fucking release they do04:36
teK_it's quite natural that chromium lacks a real abp :P04:36
Romsteror to squid or something.04:36
frinnstteK_: heh, yeah04:37
teK_same goes for cookie management04:37
Romsterthere is a few extensions that haven't been updated since the 4.x series.04:37
frinnstnice, spotifys payment thingy has been broken the entire week04:38
Romsterforcastbar was nice.. noworkie anymore.04:38
Romstertagsifter and then tagsieve was one of my most used now useless.04:40
frinnstgestures and adblock and im good to go04:40
frinnstplaintext links and context search are also pretty nice04:41
Romsterthe only gesture i got for firefox right now is middle finger.04:51
Romsterbut i can't stop using it as my primary browser.04:51
jseBack to gopher it is.04:53

cruxbot[opt-x86_64.git/2.7]: [notify] firefox: updated to 6.0.1. Removed support for external nss and nspr libs.09:12
cruxbot[opt-x86_64.git/2.7]: jre: updated to 1.709:12

cruxbot[opt.git/2.7]: firefox: removed obsolete dependency.09:13
frinnstwhy do they bother with 6.0.1? why not just call it 6.1?09:17
Romsteror 709:18
frinnstnow now, this is just a trivial security update09:18
Romsterthey could just go to the numbers like udev does...09:19
Romsterit'll be a while before they get over nine thousand though.09:19
frinnstwell, they are on their way09:19
jaegerI think they should start using the md5sum of the tarball as its version number09:19
Romsternice nice09:20
jaegerAh, shit, I renamed the source dir and now its md5sum is different!09:20
frinnst"fuck, it happened again"09:20
* jaeger opens a bug09:21
slashbeastwhy there are two firefox ports, in opt and opt-x86_64 when both looks the same?09:21
frinnsta tiiiiiiiiny little .footprint missmatch09:21
slashbeastlib64 vs lib?09:21
frinnstusr/include/firefox/Nativei386.h and usr/include/firefox/NativeX64.h09:22
Romsteryou could just rm that one file and let pkgmk say it's a new file and use the ignore new files option in prt-get.conf09:23
Romsterout of the .footprint09:23
frinnstyeah, but not everyone uses that feature09:23
frinnstits a bit annoying09:24
frinnstand there are other ports with similar issues that i've not bothered with09:24
frinnstlike mesa3d09:24
Romsterso is maintaining another pkgfile and it's only got 1 file difference.09:24
Romsteredit pkgmk to use .footprint64 ?09:25
Romsteron a 64bit system?09:25
frinnstyeah, patching pkgutils is one option09:25
Romstereh may not work still need to clone all the ports in the 64bit git tree.09:26
Romsteri thought of a build64() in the same Pkgfile for 64bit but i never implemented it in my forked pkguitils.09:27
Romstermight prove to be a pain when there is different sources for 32 and 64bit.09:27
frinnstyep, like java and other bin ports09:27
Romsterso many things but then so many gotchas09:28
Romsterthe only simple way is to clone and edit :/09:28
Romsterbut effort.09:28
frinnsti think slackware just uses something like a 64bit()09:28
frinnstin their buildscripts09:28
Romsterbut then a source64 and source.... *shrugs*09:29
frinnstyeah, its a pain no matter what you do09:29
frinnstonly upstream can solve it09:29
Romsterno one would accept that and then there is the dependencies and when you want the 32 and 64bit or just 32bit or just 64bit.09:30
frinnstlets hope ia32 dies out completely before the year is over then :)09:31
jaegerif only09:34
Romsteri got some x86 boxes but the 3 main ones i got running now are 64bit shame i haven't installed 64bit linux on them yet though09:47
frinnstyeah, go sit in the corner!09:48

jkramerI used tilmans and updated it to use the latest source tarball, but it doesn't seem to get the file permissions right11:46
tilmantelnet nethack.alt.org11:47
tilmanprbolem solved ;)11:47
jkramerNah, I need my local nethack so I can cheat :)11:48
jkramerThat is, make backups of my savegames :D11:48
tilmanthat's so wrong11:49
tilmani only do that in dwarf fortress ;)11:49
jkramerI cheat so I can keep playing. If I had to start over every time I die I'd be to frustrated to try again after a few times. :)11:52

jkramerThe worst thing that keeps happening to me all the time is that I shot a force bolt at some monster and hit a watchman waaaaay behind it.11:55
jkramerDoes guys get really angry11:56
jkramerI also regularly shoot a force bolt to destroy a boulder and kill my cat behind it :(11:57
jkramerOr I destroy things in a shop while fighting a mimic, shopkeepers are tough guys11:57
Rotwangwhich class is good to start with during first play?11:58
Rotwanga Caveman sounds interesting11:59
jkramerI usually play rogue or wizard12:00
jkramerWizard is pretty easy I guess, just you only need to remember Z -> zap spell :)12:01

tgp1994Hi everyone. I just installed vsftpd, and I have it configured how I want it, although for some reason, it doesn't want to start listening. At all. strace hasn't really been any help, the last thing before exit_group(0) is a clone() command, and before that, what looks like vsftpd trying to parse the config file. Nothing in its log file, and nothing helpful in mesg/the messages log. When I run it in CLI, it just returns to the prompt right away. Can14:43
jaegerI don't use vsftpd and that doesn't sound crux-specific, but does it have a debug command line option? that might help14:51
thrice`does it need access in /etc/hosts.allow ?  not used it myself, either14:54
teK_it does use hosts.allow14:56
teK_at least if vsftpd contains tcp_wrappers=YES14:57
teK_which is default for CRUX14:57
teK_I can paste my (working) vsftpd.conf if you like, tgp199414:58
slashbeastftp is evil.15:00
slashbeastif you have to use it, then something went wrong.15:00
teK_vsftp is awesome15:01
slashbeaststill it is ftp15:01
frinnstftp is a great idea15:01
frinnstthe protocol is pretty aweful though15:01
slashbeastunless you do use virtual ftp users, ftp is useless15:03
slashbeastscp/sftp ftw15:03
frinnstwell, yeah15:03

tgp1994Sorry about that teK_, I had some chores to attend to. I would greatly appreciate it if you pasted your conf file :)16:49
*** jkramer has left #crux16:50
tgp1994teK_: Thank you. The only significant difference I can see in our conf. files is that you have the users chrooted to their home directories. I have mine (theoretically) set so that the one user that can access ftp (me, over my LAN) will just have access to the root drive. I had that set with local_root=/, although even after commenting that out now, vsftpd still doesn't seem to be listening on port 21. (I've been killall-ing, then starting it up with16:56
teK_that's odd16:56
tgp1994I did recently update quite a few of the packages on this system, a few of which I believe were related to firewalls/networking, can you think of any configs that I may need to change since then? I just checked in with hosts.allow, and I added vsftpd: ALL, although that didn't do it.16:58
teK_VSFTPD: ALL16:59
teK_is ive got16:59
tgp1994I'll try caps-ing it to see if that may help.17:00
teK_dont think so17:01
tgp1994You're right, it didn't :\17:02
teK_switching pc17:04
teK_I'm back ;)17:38
teK_will you get a vsftpd process running by calling the start script?17:43
tgp1994teK_: Sorry about that, I don't get any notifications if my name isn't mentioned :( Start script?17:47
tgp1994Oh, right, in rc.d17:47
tgp1994I'll try it.17:47
tgp1994teK_: Well, I did get some sort of feedback using the start script. It said an SSL certificate was created, then it returned me back to the prompt. I'm still unable to connect.17:48
teK_ps aux | grep ftp17:49
tgp1994root    487   0.0   0.0   4104   448    ?    Ss   22:47   0:00   /usr/sbin/vsftpd17:50
tgp1994Yeah :\17:50
teK_better than the other round ;)17:50
teK_i.e. if it would not start up at all17:51
teK_nestat -lt17:51
tgp1994teK_: Oh :P17:51
tgp1994For ftp:   tcp   0   0   *:ftp    *:*    LISTEN17:51
teK_iptables -L17:51
tgp1994I'd pastebin it for you, although I don't have an easy way of getting it there, crux has been having trouble recognizing my usb sticks. Just glancing at it though, I see nothing for ftp.17:53
teK_is this machine publicly available?17:54
tgp1994Like not firewalled? No, it's behind an Openwrt router, which is firewalled.17:55
teK_is there a /var/log/vsftpd.log fle?17:56
tgp1994Yes, although it's empty.17:56
tgp1994Hah, I'll be darned. I just added a rule for it in the iptables INPUT chain, and it's all good now :P17:59
teK_oh well :P17:59
tgp1994Thanks for helping, teK_ :)18:00
teK_no problem18:00
teK_I really like vsftpd. :-)18:00
