* Romster partitons ssd and formats it.01:33
vee_im jelly of your ssd :P01:34
Romsterhmm guess i'll do 30 for ccache 16 for swap rest for root.01:35
Romsterthat way if i max the ram out later (got 8GB now) i can still use suspend when i ever set that up01:35
* prologic has an SSD in his mythtv backend/frontend :)01:40
Romsterthis time i wont forget the boot flag :D01:40
vee_i have a hybrid drive ;/01:42
vee_part ssd at least01:42
Romsteri thought of using bcache but it's not mature yet01:43
Romstermight do that later on still but keep root on ssd01:43
Romsterargh need to redo my kernel with ext4 support -_-01:47
Romsterdunno if them hybrid drives live up to there hype01:48
vee_they dont, its a noticeable difference, but not all too great01:49

Romsterno experience configuring grub2 got a skeleton template for me?05:29
nogagplzgrub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg05:30
angry_vincentwhy not syslinux? my favorite05:31
angry_vincentit can do uuid05:31
nogagplzlets battle royale over which bootloader is best05:31
nogagplzthen afaik installing grub is like grub-install --target=i386-pc --recheck --debug /dev/sda for mbr05:31
Romsterif i was going to do that prologic i would of used lvm on my SSD too. but i decided not too.05:32
prologicburg looks nice05:35
* Romster tries grub205:36

tilmanjust read that firefox 17 has been released09:35
tilmanon this seldomly-used laptop i'm running ... 3.6.1309:35
frinnstwell tbh. 3.6.13 was just released a couple of months ago :D09:38
Kaishiff4 was over a year ago09:47
Kaishiff4 wasMarch 22, 201109:47
Kaishiso that's a year and a half.09:48
Kaishiand mozilla simply changed version numbering, as I recall.09:49
joacim"The preferred abbreviation is "Fx" or "fx"."09:50
joacimsince we are correcting =)09:50
KaishiI'm using the abbreviation used by all the coding communities in which I participate, because the preference isn't respected by them apparently.09:52
KaishiI just wanted to point out that 3.6 is a really old branch and probably due for replacement09:52
joacimmy correction was only in jest, tho something being common or popular doesn't mean that it is correct.09:54
Kaishiright on09:55
systemd_suxXany howto installing crux onto GPT parted harddisks? >2TB forcing GPT...09:59
jaegersystemd_suxX: nothing too complicated there, just use parted instead of fdisk and make sure you have the right partition table options in the kernel config10:00
jaegerCONFIG_EFI_PARTITION=y in this case10:00
systemd_suxXbut can it boot? default is lilo lilo cannot handle uefi, and gpt...10:00
krueUEFI boot is not required for a GPT partition table10:02
krueI couldn't get UEFI boot to work on my motherboard, so I use syslinux.10:02
jaegerkrue is correct, UEFI is not required. the partition option is badly named10:03
jaegergrub2 can handle gpt, I'm sure there are others as well10:03
krueSyslinux is handy in that it boots from a FAT filesystem, which UEFI (soft of) requires10:06
krueIt makes it easier to try to get UEFI boot working later (which I haven't attempted yet, but maybe someday :)10:06
jaegerI had UEFI boots setup on my desktop and laptop for a while, removed it from the desktop because it didn't give me any big benefit that I needed10:11
*** horrorSt1uck has joined #crux10:18
systemd_suxXsyslinux supports both GPT and UEFI?10:20
*** horrorStruck has quit IRC10:21
jaegerI use grub2, can't answer that, myself10:21
horrorSt1ucksystemd_suxX: GPT for sure, UEFI I don't thing so10:27
*** horrorStruck has joined #crux10:31
systemd_suxXhorrorSr1uck, I'd prefer syslinux over grub210:33
*** horrorSt1uck has quit IRC10:34
systemd_suxXkrue, anything special to configure in syslinux to make it booting from GPT?10:40
systemd_suxXkrue, just create GPT partition and then installing syslinux will work, or do I need specific syslinux cfg or flags to make it GPT aware?10:41
jaegeryou probably need to make the gpt label, then make a FAT partition for syslinux10:41
jaegerother partitions as you like them10:41
jaeger(just a guess, have not tested)10:41
systemd_suxXjaeger I would prefer ext2 partition which syslinux/extlinux should be support, will that work?10:41
jaegertry it and find out, I guess :)10:42
systemd_suxXthose GPT UEFI stuff is driving me mad, there is no good solution and any firmware implementation is somehow broken...10:43
jaegerUEFI is a moving target... GPT is pretty stable10:43
krueI'm at work right now, but I can check for sure this evening. I seem to remember that there was a different mbr to use for gpt support.10:50
krueIn /usr/share/syslinux I think10:50
horrorStrucksystemd_suxX: no need for fat and yes you need to set some attributes10:51
systemd_suxXhorrorStruck attributes in the cfg or when creating the GPT partition?10:52
horrorStruckwhen setting up syslinux10:52
horrorStruckbefore you reboot at least :P10:52
systemd_suxXhorrorStruck saw that but that is not syslinux related but more howto create the GPT partition, I wonder if syslinux must be told that the partition is GPT rather than MBR?10:56
jaegerI doubt you have to explicitly tell it that, it probably probes automatically10:57
systemd_suxXjaeger, well cool10:57
*** systemd_suxX has quit IRC10:58
horrorStrucksystemd_suxX: well you need to install the gptmbr10:58

vee_however, connecting to my home network has no issues18:56
vee_schools computers have no wifi password18:56
nogagplzdoes your school use some sort of proxy you need to account for19:00
