niklasweokey.. It looks very nice :)01:56
pitillovery similar to nagios01:58
niklaswepitillo: yeah it´s a "fork" of nagios01:58
niklaswebut the have recreate the gui i think..01:58
pitilloa cleanest gui (which can be done in nagios chagint the theme). It's compatible with all nagios core/plugins, then it seems to be a fork/development from perl to python02:02
niklaswehmm would be nice if I could start my ws from lan...02:15

niklaswefrinnst: please give me :)07:33
frinnstyum.. fresh pot07:35
teK_pot as in public offtopic (forum)? :>07:35
niklasweI really hate ilo and orca right now...07:37
niklasweI push esc+8 when it initziling the array.. But I didnt jumped in to the configuration utility..07:38
niklasweeverything else working..07:39
Romsteri didn't know a white weekend meant no alcohol that's what i call a dry weekend.07:39
jaegerniklaswe: I both love and hate the Sun ILOMs we have at work08:09

frinnstRomster: yeah.. maybe a translation issue on my part :)08:39
lowefrinnst: oh.. coffee. i can haz need.08:39
treachfrinnst: apparently the expression exist, but mainly carrys annother connotation08:40
lowe ? ;D08:41
treachfrinnst: like the swedish guy who went to denmark, asked the cab driver to take him to a "rolig" place and to his big surprise found himselv in the cementary. :>08:42
loweHeh, "pula" in norwegian carries a quite different meaning than in swedish too..08:43
niklaswejaeger: exactly... right now it drive me to insane..08:43
niklaswejaeger: I will  configure my hp array... via ilo then i should press esc+8 but nothing happens when i do that08:44
jaegerDoes it have alternative keypresses? Ours can use, for example, F8 or Ctrl+P for the boot popup, that sort of thing08:45
niklaswejaeger: when im  physical in the serverhall then i should press F8, via ilo esc+808:49
jaegerThat's how ours are supposed to be as well but I found both keys work via ILO08:49
jaegerMaybe only on the sun stuff but worth a try08:50
niklasweyou mean i should give it a try and use F8 instead of esc+8 ?08:50
jaegeryeah, what could it hurt?08:52
niklaswenope :P08:52
niklasweI will give it a try08:52

*** Rotwang has joined #crux11:15
*** tilman changes topic to "CRUX 2.7.1 | Homepage | Ports | Paste | xorg mouse/keyboard problems?"11:52
Rotwangtilman: why 2.7.1?11:54
Rotwangok, I just opened mail11:55
jaegerhrmm, perhaps I should have used the word 'release' a bit less11:57
jaegeroh well, it does the job11:57
*** augustao has joined #crux12:04
augustaoi'm having trouble remembering if xorg needs hal and dbus to work12:04
augustaodoes it?12:04
augustaowhen i start X, my mouse and keyboard don't work12:05
augustaoi remember fixing this at some point by starting hal12:05
augustaobut i forget now if that was all i did12:05
augustaodo you know what it could be12:05
RotwangI had similar problem recently, don't remember what the fix was12:08
tilmanaugustao: try removing your xorg.conf12:09
tilmanand letting x figure out all of it itself12:09
RotwangI remember12:09
augustaofound it @ logs12:09
RotwangEVDEVsomething kernel option12:10
augustaohotpluggin is on, disabling all devices using kdb, mouse or vmmouse12:10
Rotwangzgrep EVDEV /proc/config.gz12:10
jaegeryou can also put 'Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"' in the ServerFlags section of xorg.conf12:10
augustaois that an X thing or a kernel thing?12:10
Rotwangaugustao: ^12:10
augustaojaeger: what does that do?12:11
augustaoRotwang: will try it12:11
jaegerI don't actually know what it does, in terms of xorg low level, but it works in some cases12:11
augustaocompiling new colonel12:12
augustaoalso, it's been a few years since i've used crux, so this might be a silly question: how does it handle upgrades?12:13
augustaoi see 2.7.1 has been released12:13
augustaoi have 2.712:13
jaegerWe don't do rolling release style upgrades like some other distros do, just periodically release new versions12:14
augustaoi'll admit to not having read the handbook extensively12:14
jaeger2.7.1 is an exception to the norm, you don't need it if your 2.7 install is already updated12:14
augustaokeyboard worked12:15
augustaowith the EVDEV thing @ colonel12:16
augustaolet's see what's making the mouse not work12:16
Rotwangis it plugged in?12:16
augustaomaybe it needs a reboot12:17
augustaoi just loaded the module12:17
augustaoi think i forgot something @ kernel config12:27
augustaoi tried cat'ing everything @ /dev/input and moving my mouse12:27
augustaonow the touchpad works12:31
augustaobut the usb mouse doesn't12:31
pitillohave you tried unplugin and plugin it again augustao?12:32
Rotwangwhat is in the logs?12:32
augustaopitillo: yeah12:33
augustaoRotwang: nothing, really12:33
augustaobut the problem is not X anymore12:33
augustaothe usb mouse doesn't exist in /dev/input12:34
augustaoi had forgotten to enable support for HID12:46
augustaothanks bros12:46
augustaoi shall enjoy CRUX now12:46
*** amarc has joined #crux13:00
amarcis there something like use flags for crux ?13:09
amarcuse flags as in gentoo..13:09
amarcie. I want to build php with CGI , apache with mpm-worker etc..13:09
amarcso how do you do such things on crux ? editing pkgfile ?13:11
jaegernope, though you are free to make your own ports dir, copy the ports you want to edit into them, and use them over the default ones13:11
jaegerthat was worded badly but the idea is you create your own ports "overlay" of sorts13:11
amarcwell it's not about choice then.. : )13:13
jseSure it is.13:14
jseCrux simply does not hold the user's hand.13:14
teK_that would not be holding the user's hand imho but adding more complexity13:17
augustaoanyone using kernel >= 3?13:22
jaegerI've not messed with it yet13:23

niklaswenow have they done so the "free"  is like you have a limit on songs.. you can listen on it X times..15:38

Romsteraugustao, make sure your kernel has evdev support and you rcompile the xorg-xf86-input-evdev17:19
tilmanniklaswe: kommer du fran sverige?17:22
Romsteri was wondering about that thanksgiving it's it a bit early?17:24

teK_it's ok17:56
teK_had a P III Mobile 1,2GHz before17:56
teK_and I got it for free17:56
augustaoRomster: i fixed it by adding support for evdev and HID @ kernel17:56
teK_so no probleme there17:56
Romsteraugustao, remember if you ever update xorg-server or any other major parts in future always recompile input and video xorg ports after.17:57
augustaoty for the tip17:58
Romsteryou could probably remove mouse and keyboard ports off your system too i have since i use evdev exclusively.17:59

Romsteriptables isn't hard it's tc that is.21:46
RomsterHTB can do a fine job of bandwidth but HFSC also controls latency and adds about 100x more confusion to set it up.21:47
