sudaraka_hello everyone, is this the correct place to ask a Q about crux-i586 ?07:29
*** zetsu has joined #crux07:38
teK_sudaraka_: give it a try07:41
sudaraka_ok, so I'm installing crux on a Xcore86 device which has an i586 compatible processor. Everything goes fine until the last step where I try to install grub, using grub-install it just waits for a long time (maybe forever)07:44
sudaraka_it doesn't freeze the system, I can get back to the shell with ^C, but grub doesn't install07:45
frinnstthe iso will not run on a i58608:19
frinnstall binaries are built for i68608:20
frinnstthere is an i586 iso available08:20
jaegerniklaswe: I had CRUX on a WRAP for a while, the predecessor to the ALIX. There wasn't anything complicated about it, just had to build everything for i486 for that. The ALIX at least does i586.08:23
Romsteri might of kept the i586 build going but my k6-II 450MHz sucks so badly i have left it collecting dust.08:32
sudaraka_frinnst: yes, I'm using the i586 iso08:38
sepensudaraka_: what about to try with a different bootloader like lilo or syslinux?08:39
jaegerIf you didn't already, also try grub --no-floppy08:40
sepenI've a norhtec microclient device at office but never used it or played with it08:40
sudaraka_sepen: yah, I will try those, I'm kind of hooked on grub, but this doesn't seem to go anywhere08:42
sudaraka_jaeger: same with --no-floppy08:42
jaegerHrmm, odd. Might not have a choice but to go with another boot loader08:46

niklaswejaeger: okey, How did you boot up the installation on it?..10:28
jaegerniklaswe: not sure exactly what you're asking for, it wasn't anything too unusual... you need a boot loader and serial console setup unless yours has a VGA port or something10:30
niklaswejaeger: hehe okey :) What i wondering is this.. When I installed OpenBSD on it I used tftpd-boot and when it load the image I set set tty com0 and I can continue with the installation.. but now I want to install crux on it instead.. and wondering who I will do with the installation Media.. and also get so it using serial console as default..10:33
jaegerI installed the packages onto the CF card from another linux machine with a CF reader, built a kernel with serial console support, and passed the serial console options via the boot loader, like "console=ttyS0,38400"10:37

rmullCrux doesn't have a "mirror" infrastructure, right?13:48
rmullBy that I mean we can't volunteer to host crux files for faster download13:48
jaegerNot currently13:49
jaegerI'm actually working on a distfile mirroring setup today, coincidentally13:49
rmullOh, neat13:49
