pitillogood morning01:16
veeis there any way of getting xvideo adapters into vlc?01:31
Romsterthe only thing i'd be getting into vlc is a sledge hammer.01:43
veeso aggressive01:43
Romsterunless that pile of messy code has finally been cleaned up?01:43
Romsteri tried to use vlc years ago epic failure01:43
veesometimes, when i try to watch a video, all i get is static noise. im sure its probably because soemthign is missing, but still.01:46
Romstericewm#1.3.7-1.pkg.tar.gz' succeeded i don't have that mismatch with icewm in a chroot with only those depends on deps installed.01:48
Romsteri'd suggest to edit prt-get.conf01:48
Romstermakecommand pkgmk -in01:49
Romsterin my case i use makecommand      sudo -H -u pkgmk nice -n10 fakeroot pkgmk -in01:49
Romsteras the pkgmk user with fakeroot so i don't dirty my system incase i have a rouge Pkgfile that installs stuff outside of $PKG01:50
Romsterignore new footprint files01:50
Romsterman pkgmk01:50
teK_i did that, of course. Seems my local pkgmk is too old ;)01:50
Romsterupdate pkgutils ?01:51
teK_crux 2.5 on that bo01:51
Romsterlol no wonder..01:51
teK_sometimes I wish we had a no-downtime upgrade-route01:51
Romsterand that chat was for vee i seem to have jumped channels :D01:51
teK_because it's a server (ssh/httpd/kernel are up to date!)01:51
Romsterlvm make another root lv install to that swap over to other lv on reboot. i have thought about that.01:52
teK_my idea was to have some crux-update -from 2.5 -to 2.6 or something01:53
teK_but I know you're the lvm lover/expert :p01:53
Romsterwith servers you setup mor than one to load balance with the common data shared off some iscsi or something... then you can pull out one server off the load balancing firewall update it test it to see that it's all ok then swap over to that while you update the other server then add it back into the load balance.01:54
Romsteryou could do the same with multiple hard disks too.01:54
Romsteri've found there is no 10% foolproof way to sysup and not break something...01:55
teK_yeah but you have (for core) a known system state if the machine is uptodate for example on the 2.5 branch01:55
Romsterthe longer you don't update the more hurt it is when you do.01:55
teK_there are always some hickups lurking but its better than nothing and you could still reinstall/upgrade from the 2.6 ISO if something went wrong01:55
Romsteri find it easier to use the iso pkgadd all the iso core ports change the ports to use the later 2.7 ones... update sysup.01:56
Romsteri always expect something to break when i update.01:57
Romsteri'm off to table tennis to beat some ass laters.01:59
Romsternote i got a shelf of table tennis trophies :D01:59

teK_Romster: the probablity for errors if you update from a quite stable and known state should be minimal but reality may prove me wrong :>02:43

joacimall this time i thought it was eating too much and sitting around too much that made you fat13:03
teK_I always ghad the impression that fast food increased my weight more than normal food; maybe it's because more of this styrofoam fits into one's stomache :>13:05
treachteK_: I think you need to see a psychiatrist or maybe a dietist. :p13:06
teK_o really?13:08
teK_I do not eat fast food that often13:08
teK_psychiatrist: private issue, if at all. ;)13:09
*** teK_ has quit IRC13:11
treachI meant it could be an idea if you were consuming styrofoam, unless you happen to have a goat somewhere in your genealogical table. :P13:11

horrorStrucksup vee ? for your problem with vlc, rebuild liba52 without --enable-double, that should fix it18:44
*** Ovim-Obscurum has quit IRC18:44
veehorrorStruck: thanks, once my system update finishes, ill get on that xD18:44
*** Ovim-Obscurum has joined #crux18:46
veesorry horrorStruck, but how does one rebuild without the --enable-double?19:06
veeby rebuild, i assume you mean an update...19:07
Romsteredit the Pkgfile remove that option to configure19:30
Romsteri can't find a sane solution to enable double and keep the single around for just vlc.19:31
Romstervlc should fix there code.19:31
Romstereverything else works with liba52 jsut fine.19:31
veeyea i figured lol19:34
