Romsterthis week the other IT guy is taking this week off and it was quiet every other week but monday i got a ton of jobs in.08:22
Romstermight go quiet for the rest of the week though.08:22
Romsterother than my odd sleeping hours due to less caffeine in my system, i'm fine.08:23
rmullcutting back on coffee?08:23
Romsteri stopped, now i just have a cup every few days or so. went a week without a cup after i started having some.08:24
frinnstdude, that *cant* be healthy08:24
Romsternot addicted to it anymore or get any nasty withdraw symptom's.08:24
Romsterwhat cut back on caffeine intake?08:24
rmullThat's good. How much were you drinking at your peak?08:24
Romsterat my peak which was years ago over 10 easily a day08:25
Romsteri drank it practically like drinking water.08:25
frinnstget an espressomachine instead. you will cut back on the amount08:25
rmullAlways a good feeling to remove a dependency08:26
frinnstbut still get that sweet sweet coffee08:26
Romsterfrinnst, i'm pretty sur emy body is still adjusting with sleep less caffeine not keeping my stimulated when my mind should be recuperating08:26
frinnsti cant sleep unless i've had coffee08:26
Romsteri was like that frinnst08:27
Romstersee if you can stop for over 3 weeks then see how you sleep more solidly.08:27
Romsterif you crave coffee and get headaches you know your addicted.08:27
frinnstyeah, and loving every second of it!08:27
Romsterat least i don't smoke, was just coffee and alcohol from time to time.08:28
Romsteri don't intend to stop just cut back on caffeine for some occasions.08:28
Romsterlast coffee made me feel jittery when it usually has no effect.08:29
Romsterdrinking coffee all the time = 30% less oxygen to your entire body including your brain.08:29
Romsterrestricts blood vessels08:30

jaegershit like "ujelly" or "u mad bro?", fucking idiotic13:15
v33its troll speak...thats what happens when you spend too much time on 4chan13:16

*** Rotwang has joined #crux13:23
jaegerI don't actually respond to people who send me text messages or emails like that13:30
jaegerI'm talking about it here to make a point but I need to just shut up because I know in my heart that 99% of the world doesn't give a rat's ass about pride in speech or writing13:31
v33personally, i believe there is a time and place for it all. i probably hate illerate morons as much as you do, but not every instance requires formal speaking13:33
thrice`i believe there is no place at all for 'ujelly'13:36
v33perhaps, but then again, there shouldn't be a place for lol, lmao, and all its counterparts13:38
v33you guys would enjoy this video, especially you jaeger13:40

v33there are linuxs that boot in 5 seconds O.O16:14
joe9v33, which are?16:15
v33though it doesn't really show the bios load out16:16
*** Evil_Bob has quit IRC16:20
rmullMy eeepc is crazy fast boot too16:21
rmullThe BIOS screen is really quick16:21
rmulland the SSD is small and shitty, but works well enough16:22
rmullI boot to CLI though16:22
v33im limiting myself to a 10 second boot for crux on my new laptop16:22
rmullwhat init system are you going to use?16:24
v33i have no clue. :P what would you suggest?16:24
rmullI would just start with the default and worry about it if it's too slow :P16:25
v33hm. maybe i should play with fgetty or agetty16:26
v33wait, agetty is the default i think haha16:28
joacimi wish they had shown it really going from "Naught to Sixty"16:35
v33shame they didn't :/16:35
joacimthink my motherboards second sata controller adds about 15 seconds to the boot16:38
joacimbooting time16:38
v33hoping the ssd still helps me through the 10 second hump16:41
joe9wondering if there are any articles that can guide/help me in migrating from lilo to grub with initrd.16:41
*** vaddi has quit IRC16:43
v33any particular reason you're moving away from lilo?16:45
joe9i am stuck with using metadata of 0.90 with lilo.16:46
joe9I use raid-1 and have it compiled in the kernel.16:46
joe9v33: it appears that lilo is the past and that grub is the future, from what I could garner from this irc.16:46
v33i like lilo's simplicity, but yes, more people are starting to swap to grub16:47
joe9I like lilo too. no problems and I have the workflow ironed out.16:47
joe9but, I am afraid that I will not be able to get things working sometime soon.16:48
joe9if I install the latest mdadm, system does not even boot up.16:48
joe9some issue with an invalid C library.16:48
v33sorry i cant be of help :/16:48
joe9with grub + crux, initrd or initramfs?16:51
*** v33 has quit IRC17:02
joe9anyone using initramfs on crux?17:10
jaegerthe install ISO does17:11
joe9jaeger, I am moving from lilo to grub with initramfs for a root file system on raid-1. Any words of advice?17:17
joe9I am reading up on initramfs here17:17
jaegerI haven't done it myself but I imagine it won't be too complicated17:17
joe9is there a mkinitramfs for crux?17:17
jaegerthe initramfs needs to be able to load the appropriate modules for your hardware and mdadm and do the mdadm assembly, then pass control to the system, basically17:17
jaegermaybe in the portdb, not sure17:18
joe9should I first get initramfs working and then migrate from lilo to grub. is that a good idea?17:18
joe9jaeger: thanks, found it.17:18
joe9I mean the mkinitramfs package in the portsdb17:18
joe9romster has it in his collection.17:19
jaegerpersonally I'd get the initramfs working first, yeah17:22
jaegerone thing at a time is easier to troubleshoot17:22
joe9jaeger, thanks.17:22
joe9jaeger: is the initial ram disk file with initramfs named initrd... too? Isn't it better to name it something else, such as, initramfs.., oslt?17:34
jaegerthe name doesn't particularly matter17:36

joe9anyone got mkinitramfs working?
joe9it complains about missing udevcontrol, which supposedly has been replaced with "udevadm --reload-rules"..18:31
jaegeris mkinitramfs kept current?18:38
*** nthwyatt has quit IRC18:38
*** nthwyatt has joined #crux18:38
joe9It does not appear so. I think the package is good, but, the mkinitramfas itself is not being updated, imho..18:44
joe9there does not seem to be a port for busybox in portsdb. anyone noticed/using this?18:52
joe9I found this link to make an initramfs image manually. but, the busybox in there is outdated. crux does not have a busybox port.19:01
jaegersorry, was on the phone... have you looked at the source for the CRUX ISO? It could be helpful, though it's a more manual process than mkinitrd/mkinitramfs19:08
jaegerIt uses busybox but it's all built in the Makefile, no port used for that19:09
joe9jaeger: thanks, will check the crux iso.19:17
*** joe9 has quit IRC19:34
*** v33 has joined #crux19:52
Romsterwork safe but they may think your gay watching this19:54
Romsterjoe9, i have a busybox package in hvl i just updated it and added it to my romster repo.19:56
Romsterjaeger, mkinitramfs seems dead upstream, probably a better tool out there i don't know about.19:57
Romsteror do it manually.19:58

joe9the latest release of mdadm, 3.2.3, segfaults on my machine with this message: [    4.992551] mdadm[206]: segfault at 0 ip b76197a1 sp bff0e364 error 4 in[b75a6000+155000]19:58

joe9not sure if this was posted or not. Hence, posting it again.19:59
joe9the latest release of mdadm, 3.2.3, segfaults on my machine (crux distro) with this message: [    4.992551] mdadm[206]: segfault at 0 ip b76197a1 sp bff0e364 error 4 in[b75a6000+155000]19:59

Romsterjoe9, i have a busybox package in hvl i just updated it and added it to my romster repo.19:59
joe9cool, will take it.20:00
Romstermdadm 3.2.3-1 is working fine for me.20:00
Romstercustom CFLAGS?20:00
joe9but, the whole manual process with the mkinitramfs is scary'ish.20:00
joe9atleast to me.20:00
joe9romster, good one. will check the CFLAGS20:00
Romstermkinitramfs is pretty old i wouldn't use that method anymore.20:00
Romsterit's not alot too it.20:01
joe9so, do you use initrd or initramfs?20:01
Romsterdid in the past not currently.20:01
joe9cool, do you use lilo or grub?20:02
Romstermay help20:04
joe9romster, can you please check if this is the same build log you had with mdadm? if you do not mind:
joe9romster, thanks will check that stuff on initramfs.20:05
Romsterbasicly you need busybox static mdadm binary kernel with initramfs support and a /sbin/init file that will assemble the raid etc.20:05
Romster for a example /sbin/init file.20:06
Romsteri gotta get back to work later.20:08
