timcowchipdo you have any ports?00:25
tuxhatnot yet00:25
tuxhati will do my own  repo soon00:25
tuxhati'm just trying to resolve issues with some apps00:25
timcowchipyou seem to be very knowledgable00:26
tuxhatwhat im doing now is i'm testing ... after i'm done building up my system and everythign is stable .. i will sort all the <DEP> and make my own Pkgfile for them and will contrib my repository00:26
tuxhatwhy thank u i guess i am00:27
timcowchipsounds good!00:27
tuxhatthats because computer is my life :)00:27
timcowchipI have to step out for awhile, bbl00:28
tuxhatrlight mate00:28
tuxhati'm thinking of doing a port of haskell platform
tuxhatso crux user can get cabal-install00:30
tuxhatits easier to get xmonad and xmobar from the haskell port system00:30
tuxhati notice they have the port for the lastest haskell but its not a platform base which the lastest platform base is 7.4.2. and its binary00:31
tuxhatu can do like cabal update00:31
tuxhatand cabal install xmobar xmonad and it puts it in /home/USER/.cabal/bin00:32
tuxhatso i think that would be cool to contrib to because its a nice source :)00:33

Dark_lightAre there plans to eventually port gnome3 ?09:23
nogagplzif somebody wants it so badly then somebody will do the pkgfiles for it09:29
frinnstI really dont see the point in running a fully blown DE on crux. yet some do :)09:44
teK_I suppose you don't just create a gnome3 Pkgfile .. it's a lot harder than that. Ask jaeger.10:40
frinnstyeah its never been easy. iirc slackware dropped gnome because it became unmanageble11:02
teK_I still don't get why it has to be/is that way11:04
frinnstbecause they use 2347823 libraries that are never used for anything else but gnome11:05
frinnstunlike kde11:05
teK_well that only explains why there are quite some ports in gnome/ but not why it's just a pain in the neck to glue all that together11:08
teK_maybe systemd could help :x11:08
frinnsti recall there being a project/script that built it for you?11:20
rmullIs there a way I can build gcc using ccache/distcc? It seems to be avoiding my cache and my distcc because during bootstrap it is running an 'xgcc' executable from within the work directory11:22
teK_frinnst: dunno.. there is :)11:23
rmullDoes arch package gnome3? Maybe you could adapt their build files11:24

*** pitillo has joined #crux12:22
jaegerI did port gnome3 at one time. I used it for a week or so and didn't really like it much, so I dropped it12:45
jaegerNobody else had expressed any interest in it at the time so I didn't publish or keep the ports12:45
jaegerThe one feature it has that I wish I could get in MATE (which windows 7 and 8 also have) is the ability to maximize an app to half the screen12:46
jaegerYou can approximate it with something like tmux or use a tiling WM or something so there are alternatives, but I do wish that every DE had that feature12:47
Romsterrmull, STAGE_CC_WRAPPER="$CC"13:37
Amnesiajaeger: are there any plans to use a stronger hashing algorithm with crux's pkgutils?14:39
teK_although there is an implementation allowing for sha256sums (by Romster?)14:40
Amnesiahm ok14:41
