nogagplzthere was some tool somebody made that does a relatively decent job of converting pkgbuilds to pkgfiles00:24
nogagplzthere's no denying that arch has a whole lot of decent crap floating around the aur and other places that crux lacks00:25
timcowchipsounds interesting00:25
diverseits easy to make that program, just parse each line and replace the bash vars with the appropriate configuration00:25

norxtxis the "openvpn" package of "contrib" available in the installation iso?04:20
teK_I don't think there are any contrib packages installed or available on the iso04:22
teK_where do you want to vpn to during an installation?04:22
teK_uni network? ;)04:22
norxtxteK_: exactly04:22
prologicAny of you guys in the US?04:23
teK_but why? is this a netinst?04:23
norxtxas i see i can do an offline installation but i need the vpn package afterwards to continue to install anything else04:24
teK_prepare the dep's sources on an usb stick before installation04:25
teK_it won't get any better ;)04:25
norxtxi'm forced on vpn completely, don't have any other connection :D04:25
teK_but you do at present, obviously04:25
norxtxteK_: i'll predownload the packages then04:25
norxtxteK_: i'll replace my vpn gateways distribution, so for now i still have a connection but i'll loose it as soon as i turn it off for installation ;)04:26
teK_so don't forget to download all required sources ;)04:27
norxtxi hope so :D04:29

Flynndid crux drop support for i686?07:58
diverseFlynn: no, its still getting support, but its preferred to use 3.008:03
Rotwangwell, to be honest, it did08:18
Flynnseems like everyone is08:19
Flynni'm trying to find a distro for my Pentium 3 Thinkpad08:19
*** vaddi has joined #crux08:19
FlynnAll the lightweight distros aren't even supporting legacy hardware08:20
FlynnI dont get it, that's where you need a lightweight distro the most08:20
joacimdunno about upgrading just yet. i still remember how i screwed up the last time :p08:24
joacimi forgot to rejmerge the new files in /etc/ports before i ran ports -u08:24
diverseI don't get why there are still pentium 3 users. You can get a cheap refurbished laptop/machine that will easily out perform.08:24
joacimthe early core duo laptops are techincally pentium 3 machines08:25
Flynneven an X61s Thinkpad can't match the T21's battery life08:25
joacimi think08:25
Flynnplus, a lot of *nix folks use cli most of the time08:25
diversejoacim: thats bull08:25
joacimis it08:26
diverseOk, you are confusing the fact that Core 2/i3/i5 chips which can have duo cores with the really old laptops used to have two pentium cpus to act as duo cores, so what?08:27
joacimam i08:28
Flynncore duo =/= core 208:28
joacimi said core duo08:28
joacimi meant core duo08:28
Flynnjoacim: * wikipedia states they are 48608:30
diverseFlynn: anyway, it wouldn't cost you much, unless you are really stranded for money to buy a really cheap laptop. Find one with a 9 cell battery for longer lasting charge.08:30
joacimi dont really see anything wrong in what i said. lacking of details maybe, but the early core cpus were based on the pentium m and pentium 3 herritage (P6)08:31
diversejoacim: it has NOTHING to do with what I am talking about. End of discussion.08:32
Flynnthis channel argues to much08:33
diverseNo not really.08:33
joacimit was a response to you not getting why there are pentium 3 users. those cpus shouldnt be too slow for those interested in them.08:34
fireglowstop arguing and convert to systemd08:34
diversejoacim: well thats his problem.08:34
diverseI was trying to be helpful08:35
joacimi think my old pentium 2 could do certain tasks well if i wanted it to. i'd use it as a server, but i think it is too unstable for that. the cpu and motherboard belongs in a recycling center.08:41
jaegerThere's a certain point where replacing the hardware is worth more than holding on to the old stuff because you still have it08:42
diverseThe point was to him, he can buy a new laptop with an equivalent of $300 or less which would support the x86-64 architecture and he wouldn't have to worry about Crux's inevitable dropping of 2.8.08:42
diversejaeger: i agree08:44
joaciman old 32-bit system could be a good freebie08:45
joacimbut i find 64-bit systems for free in my area too08:45

timcowchiphow do i start lm_sensors?12:54
timcowchiprc.conf? rc.local?12:55
teK_if there's no start script for it in /etc/rc.d, then you have to use rc.local12:57
timcowchipin slackware i added modprobe w83627hf12:59
timcowchipto /etc/rc.local13:00
timcowchipbut modprobe w83627hf doesn't work13:00
teK_even if run manually?13:00
timcowchipbash-4.2# modprobe w83627hf13:01
timcowchipmodprobe: FATAL: Module w83627hf not found.13:01
timcowchipalready did sensors-detect13:01
timcowchipis this something i should have built into the kernel during installation?13:02
timcowchipoh well, too late13:02
teK_you have to run modprobe -a if you want to use it after installation without reboot13:03
frinnstyou dont have to reinstall, just build a new kernel13:03
timcowchipboot from the crux.iso?13:03
frinnstcd into the kernel source (probably still in /usr/src/) enable the wanted module, build and install it13:03
teK_go to /usr/src/linux-* and reconfigure/rebuild from there13:04

vee_been reading on how to get crux on macs, and my god...why are macs so unecessarily complicated?13:44
vee_apparently, you can make the process easier, if you create the partition with gparted, and use it to write the mbr essentially. bahh13:50
vee_i have a question. if one has finished installing the system, and, chroots into it, can they start using prt-get to install elilo?13:55
*** n_y_c has joined #crux14:07
diversemacs are designed to be complicated while using proprietary hardware that would make it only suitable for its OS. Its marketing. They don't want to mess around.14:13
