fakerootSorry for pasting here.02:22
fakerootOK, another stupid question: if I have 32-bit system and set -march=native, it compiles 32-bit apps or 64-bit?02:30
tilmanrephrase question please02:31
tilmani guess the missing bit of info is 'my cpu is 64 bit'02:31
tilmanand the answer is: it will generate 32 bit code02:31
fakerootYes, Core2Quad Q9300, but 2GB ram.02:31
tilmansince your compiler knows it's running on a 32 bit system02:31
fakerootAh, ok.02:32
tilmanamount of ram doesn't matter at all wrt this :)02:32
Rotwangwlasnie o to mi chodzilo02:32
tilmanwould be crazy shit:02:32
tilmanhave 1 gig of ram -> compiler generates 32 bit code02:32
tilmanplug in another 4 gig -> compiler suddenly generates 64 bit code02:32
fakerootRotwang: Why do you piszesz po polsku :D02:33

Rotwangthat I didn't notice at first06:04
Rotwangso the rat escaped, but now I covered the hole so hopefuly no more rats for me06:05

joe6i have the primary boot partition on raid-1. will the raid-1 device work, if I remove the kernel auto-detect raid option?09:44
joe6the manpage of mdadm says that the kernel option is not recommended, hence, am thinking about removing it.09:45
joe6mdadm does not recognise my device with the name i give it, it recognises it with a different name:
jaegerIt is needed unless you build an initrd/initramfs09:45
joe6oh, ok. i am with lilo and vmlinuz09:46
joe6btw, the reason I am mucking around with it is that I cannot get mdadm to name the mdX to the name(/dev/md2) I provide it with in the mdadm.conf09:47
joe6it comes up with a name /dev/md126 oslt.09:47
joe6this is what it has in /var/log/kernel:
joe6i am not sure if anyone has noticed this, but on my m/c the uuid's that mdadm is showing do not match up with the /dev/disk/by-uuid09:56
joe6 9f920a15-40a4-4358-a125-22befe38f331 -> ../../md12609:56

conbot123occasionally i may counter troll though12:36
conbot123is rhel any good?12:36
frinnstdepends on what you want, but sure12:37
conbot123personal use12:39
frinnstquite expensive for personal use12:40
frinnsttry scientific linux or centos instead12:40
conbot123i downloaded rhel desktop 4 free12:40
conbot123centos sucked up y 1G mem12:40
frinnstyeah, but you need to subscribe (pay) to get updates12:40
joe6i make changes using "crontab -e", but the changes are not getting saved. crontab -l shows me the initial file12:40
conbot123i dont care about updates12:40
conbot123i just recompile and install12:41
conbot123the old fashion way\12:41
joe6echo $EDITOR=vim, may was the issue. let me try with vi12:42

*** cinolt has joined #crux17:35
cinoltI'm experimenting with trying to create a bootable LiveUSB, and I've been looking particularly at how CRUX does it. Is one of the CRUX dev's here that is willing to briefly break down the structure of it?17:36
cinoltI know that the ISO image and usbdisk image contains the same data, but just in different formats17:37
cinoltFrom what I know, the BIOS will look into the bootable USB's MBR, which points to a bootable partition and from there somehow invokes syslinux.bin, which invokes the kernel and initramfs, loads the appropriate kernel modules, then how does it know to unsquash squashfs-root?17:39
Rotwangthe unsquashing happens in initramfs17:41
cinoltOk but what file in initramfs tells it to do that?17:42
RotwangI think init script17:43
Rotwangfile named init17:43
cinoltOk. Well let's say I did not want to use initramfs, does the kernel always look for the script named /init and always run that? Or how can I tell it to?17:46
Rotwangon the kernel command line17:47
Rotwangbut the file must be on already mounted filesystem17:47
cinoltWill the kernel mount the filesystem automatically, if it has the drivers built-in?17:50
RotwangI guess so17:51
cinoltSigh, I want to experiment things in practice, but has been down for weeks17:52
Rotwangkernel source is available on github17:53
cinoltI tried that, but it doesn't seem to have syslinux which I need17:53
Rotwangisn't syslinux a separate project?17:54
cinoltI guess, but appears to host it17:54
cinoltThe port on CRUX downloads it from there too, as well as on freshmeat17:55
cinoltDo you think a bootable USB can be made with LILO?18:09
Rotwangdoubt it18:13
Rotwangbut it's my guess18:13
Rotwangjust never seen one with lilo18:13

cinoltSo most distros use syslinux for their installation images?18:41
joe6need some help getting sound/alsa to work on crux.18:43
joe6alsactl init18:44
joe6alsactl: parse:1655: Unable to open file '/usr/share/alsa/init/00main': No such file or directory18:44
cinoltDid you enable it in the kernel config?18:44
joe6yes, I did. built them all. i can see the device listed.18:44
cinoltI get the same error but ALSA works fine.18:46
cinoltDid you try alsaconf?18:46
laenAlsaconf is deprecated.18:47
joe6"alsa start" --does not start any processes. alsaconf does not find my card.18:48
joe6, my settings in /proc18:49
joe6the only thing different in my case is that i built the modules into the kernel, instead of as modules. but, I see the device being recognised.18:49
joe6so, i guess that is not the issue.18:49
cinoltDid you unmute the channels in alsamixer?18:50
joe6amixer settings:
joe6i think it is at 100% and unmuted.18:50
joe6, all alsa packages installed.18:52
joe6should there be a alsa daemon or something like that?18:52
cinoltI believe the alsa daemon only saves/restores the mixer levels :o18:52
cinoltin /etc/rc.d/alsa18:53
joe6oh, ok. that is pretty much unhelpful then, I guess.18:53
cinoltAre you sure the sound hardware itself even works?18:53
joe6The hardware card level is good, The kernel module level (imho) is good: boot:
joe6The /proc/asound kernel interface, (imho) is good.18:55
joe6 /dev/snd interface18:55
joe6so, that leaves the alsa library as the only thing i am not sure of.18:56
joe6is there a way to doublecheck that.18:56
joe6the sound worked from debian.18:56
joe6same machine.18:56
joe6the only difference that I can think of is putting the modules in the kernel and the crux libraries.18:57
joe6nothing fancy, just want the headphones to work.18:57
joe6should there be any other processes that should be working?18:58
cinoltNot sure, maybe the people are #alsa are more knowledgeable on the subject18:58
cinoltI personally would try copying same kernel in Debian and use it on CRUX18:59
cinoltMaybe you missed a kernel config option by accident or something18:59
joe6ok, thanks.19:01

Romsteroh boy that conbot123 fella is starting to become a pest.22:15
Romsterjoe6, also raid autodetect only works with older mdadm metadata 0.90 the right way now is a initramfs with the /sbin/init script with mdadm command to assemble it and not use raid autodetect anymore.22:16
joe6ok, thanks. I will have to get to that at some point. I have a few more things to sort out before. such as sound, etc.22:17
