Romsteroh for god sake it's a pain getting a config to work on vbox. do you have one handy jaeger ?00:26
veeyes he does, i borrow it all the time00:26
Romsterand i can't use more than 1 cpu i think i got BIOS settings to enable00:26
Romsterwhich means a reboot don't feel like doing that now.00:27
veehope you dont mind, jaeger.00:27
Romsterhe shouldn't if it's to prove if my system is broken or not.00:27
veejust being cautious is all :)00:27
Romsterargh how do i get it in there when the clipboard is not shared and i can't get the net to work...00:31
Romsterlspci -k is not suggesting what module to load hmm00:32
veeprobably totally not helpful, but, wget?00:33
veeeven though you say there is no network so...not sure what one can do about that00:33
Romsternto when the entwork isn't working in vbox and i can't paste it in there...00:34
Romstermodprobe e1000 i think.00:34
Romsterhmm no eth0 i'm searosuly lacking any vbok skills00:36
Romsternot sure if i should be using NAT or bridge i am reading the documentation but i'm still confused.  oh hang on that's another site not the official one.00:38
Romstermodprobe e1000 ; ping nothing at all in NAT mode...00:48
*** vee has quit IRC00:48
Romsterand there is no eth0 to find to use /etc/rc.d/net00:48
*** Rotwang has joined #crux00:57
Romsterdamn it that's why the VB NAT is DHCP only00:57

veeits times like these where i really hate myself. i've been trying to setup automount usb's, and i dont even have a /media folder. fml01:08
*** Rotwang has joined #crux01:16
Romstereppic failure01:19
Romstergiven up on vbox until later i don't understand how the f networking works on it.01:19
Romstermorning pitillo01:19
*** vee has quit IRC01:25
pitilloromster: nat on vbox is a net under its own dhcp server (10.0.0.x if I remember right), bridging is used when you want to publish the VM in your network01:30
Romster i have a static host setup behind a NAT router, no idea how to get vbox to jsut work with the net no port forwarding needed.01:31
pitilloRomster: you can use nat and use vbox dhcp server (with an ip in that segment 10.0.0.X or something similar) There is no hard setup needed really01:32
Romsterso how do i do that in the guest when i did modprobe e1000 and i still have no eth001:33
pitillostrange, if you have setup vbox to use that interface it should be listed when you modprobe the module01:34
Romster a howto guide would be helpful01:34
pitilloI don't know if there is a howto somewhere, but I remember that it's explained right in the vbox faq/help01:34
Romster82540EM Gigabit network card e1000 is the module01:34
pitillothat setup is the minimal/basic one, which isn't hard really. Bridging can confuse a bit more01:35
Romsteri've been looking though that.01:35
pitilloany error when you modprobe it?01:35
Romsternope none01:35
Romsteryet lspci -k doens't show the module being in use.01:35
Romsterguess i can try linux rescue cd and see if i can get the net to work with that first.01:36
Romsterjust wasting hours worth of scouring though documentation with no real idea what i'm doing.01:37
Romsterhmm another idea would be if someone has a virtualbox image already of crux 2.7.101:38
*** vee has joined #crux01:40
pitilloare you sure you have it right setup in vbox Romster?01:40
pitillofor me sounds that the device isn't enabled01:40
Romsterall i got set is NAT intel pro/1000 MT desktop the default settings it chose.01:40
Romsterand the enable network adapter box is marked.01:41
Romsteri'll just share a damn flder on my host so i can get this config in and recompile the kernel.01:42
Romsterif that even shows up as a mount point god damn it01:44
Romsterneed guest -additions01:45
Romsteri'm not getting anywhere and i'm too frustrated to mess with it now.01:46
pitilloummm it shouldn't be hard to use the standard net setup, quite strange01:47

* Rotwang needs some good cmake doc's10:22
tilmanSUCKS TO BE YOU10:37
tilmanTHERE ARE NONE10:37
Rotwangtilman: we are going to revrite our buildsystem, and the choice is going to be cmake10:37
tilmanagain: sucks to be you ;))10:38
Rotwangtilman: but indeed it seems that doing some thing is really really hard with cmake10:38
tilmanthere's a book about cmake written by the guys who develop cmake10:38
tilmannot sure what the title is10:39
tilmananyway, it's useless10:39
tilmanonce you got started, the cmake wiki has a few good points10:39
Rotwange.g. I have a tool that generates cpp files, and I don't know how they are going to be named10:39
RotwangI need to wildcard them10:39
Rotwangtilman: really\10:39
tilmanwell, there's probably a GLOB() function or somesuch in cmake10:39
Rotwangtilman: yeah, but it is evaluated before actual generation10:40
tilmanno idea then10:41

joe9cannot install tetex:
joe9tilman: Just wanted to check if there was any reason why you are not bumping zsh from 4.3.12 to 4.3.15?12:29
joe9tilman, I just installed it and it seems to install fine. Just bumped the version from .12 to .15 in the Pkgfile12:29
joe9 anyone knows if installing tetex will help with this issue?12:30
joe9and tetex does not want to install.12:32
jaegerRomster: If I remember correctly the virtualbox documentation online is good for networking help12:34
joe9romster, I cannot get to this:\#texinfo12:55
joe9has it changed.12:55
joe9got it, do not bother12:56

* thrice` either17:14
jaegerMore or less the well-priced version of alienware17:14
veehm...just did a quick cutom build...and its about a 200 dollar difference17:17
jaegerHrmm, they've either gone up or alienware has come down, then17:17
jaegerI bought one from them years ago that was about $900 cheaper than the alienware17:18
veejust noticed, its 200 dollars cheaper, but, has a 2 gb video card O.o17:19
veethe specs on the top end... fuck my 700 dollar budget! xD17:20
jaegerI still have my sager laptop, though it no longer boots17:22

veewoops, sorry guys20:23
veeoh jaeger, you were right, the laptop (considering all the crap i added) is faster than the alienware by a whole lot, and, was cheaper too. thanks!20:24
*** vaddi has quit IRC20:28
jaegervee: with those specs I imagine it was not in the $700 budget, though20:41
veenot quite, about oh..double xD20:41
jaegerNot too bad for those specs20:42
jaegerthough that SSD price is really high20:43
veei agree. especially for a 12820:44
jaeger120GB SSD sweet spot is about $1/1GB right now if you wait for a sale20:45
jaegerat least for the 320 series, I can't imagine the 510 is so much better that it commands double price20:45
veenow, im contemplating adding it. figured, if you spend over a 1500, you get a 100 off, and, im almost there on the stuff i already have so...20:46
veeits kind of a bummer they charge 160 bucks for a .2gh bump20:47
