prologicRomster:  how exactly?02:38
Romsterwell there built packages of 32bit only off jues work.02:39
Romsteri just fired up the chroot to bump the versions again but it'll be some time got 20 mins before i head back to work.02:39

elsphincaudacious complains MISSING madplug?03:38
elsphincactually audacious-plugins03:38
nogagplzin the .footprint or while configuring03:39
elsphincwhile configuring just after the ERROR: footprint mismatch03:40
nogagplzdoes not compute, it builds fine but then errors at the end?03:41
elsphincnope ends with that error building from rehabdoll repository03:42
nogagplzit just sounds like whoever did the footprint built it with madplug, and you're building it without causing the mismatch, correct me if I'm wrong03:44
nogagplzso I guess either try rebuilding it after madplug is installed ot update the footprint and live without madplug03:44
elsphincok so can i just comment out the madplug line in audacious-plugins .footprint and rebuild03:47
nogagplzor add -uf onto the prt-get command03:47
nogagplzor pkgmk whichever you're using03:47
elsphincok the -uf worked. thanks03:49
nogagplzdon't make a habit of blindly doing that though, sometimes MISSING can indicate you're actually missing something important03:50
nogagplzbut yeah, no worries03:50
elsphincsure makes sense i read a bit about that03:50

elsphincno decoder found for mp3 i just need lame installed no?04:08
jaegerprologic: depends on the metadata and partition type. you can do it without initrd for some configurations04:11
prologicit would be nice if it could be done without an initrd04:11
jaegerwell, it's even easier if it's not the boot partition04:12
jaegerraid0 or raid1 booting can be done without initrd and lilo and grub both support it04:12
jaegerset the partition type to 'fd' and use mdadm metadata version 0.904:12
prologicdo you have to have  separate boot parition?04:13
prologicthat isn't raid0/104:13
nogagplzelsphinc maybe read what configure says it finds/doesn/t find while it's doing the ./configure bit04:14
jaegerno, no need for a separate partition for a simple config like that04:16
jaegerif you want to do raid5 or raid10 or something then it gets more complicated but for 0 and 1 you can use the kernel autoconfig magic to do it04:16
jaegermake sure you compile the kernel with the appropriate auto-assembly option. can't remember what it's called but it should be easy to find04:16
prologicso in theory I should be able to do a simple raid1 + lioo + supporting kernel04:17
prologicwith 0.9 metadata04:17
prologicawesome :)04:17
prologicis 0.9 metadata special?04:17
prologicor is it 0.9+ (latest mdadm metadata?)04:18
jaegerIt's the old unspecial version, actually, but it's what's required for the kernel auto-assembly to work04:18
jaegerIt isn't the default anymore for mdadm assemble so be careful when you create the md04:19
prologicahh k04:19
prologicand later kernel versions don't support later versions of the metadata?04:19
jaegerNot for auto-assembly, no04:20
jaegerI guess they just don't feel like it needs to be updated04:20
jaegeror they assume everyone uses initrd now, perhaps04:20
prologicI'd think the later - yeah04:20
prologicon the other hand04:20
jaegerIf you went that route the metadata version wouldn't matter and your raid config could be as complicated as you wanted04:20
jaegerI tested it with a raid10 for grins once04:21
prologicperhaps I won't worry about a raid1 desktop to replace my dead desktop04:21
prologicraid != backups anyway04:21
jaegernot as good as backups but can't hurt to have both to save time04:21
prologicI'd rather save the money04:21
prologicand buy a half decent NAS nayway04:21
prologicso I dunno yet04:21
jaegerI assumed you asked because you had the drives around but I suppose there's no reason I should assume that :)04:21
jaegerI used to run 2 2TB drives in my desktop in raid1 for my big stuff, media, etc.04:22
prologicI'm thinking of replacing my sea desktop with:
jaegerjust recently moved those drives into a NAS VM and bought a third, it's a ZFS raidz now04:22
*** elsphinc has quit IRC04:24
jaegerIf that's gonna be a main desktop I'd recommend a 120GB SSD instead of 60/64GB just for performance reasons04:24
jaeger <-- this one specifically based on what they list they have04:25
jaegerObviously it's more expensive but it'll perform better; there's a sort of performance wall below 120/128GB sizes04:27
jaegera gross oversimplification of it would be to think of the 120 sort of like 2 60s in raid0, speed-wise04:27
jaegerAnyway, going to get some sleep, good night04:28

diverseretard: what did redhat do this time?10:56
retarddiverse: they employ the maintainer of util-linux, who has disabled ddate by default so that RHEL wouldn't have to deviate from upstream10:57
retardmeaning ddate is now a flag that has to be enabled, meaning it's disappearing10:58
retardmeaning i'm feeling sad10:58

diverseI called this the "systemd-effect" where features are removed/altered and forced on the user's without their accord.11:06
diverseretard: it looks like you are not alone on this, as google shows others complaining about this change.11:10
retardit is frustrating, and you're right, it reminds me a lot of the systemd-effect11:12
retardparticularly the most insidious thing, which is how it'll spread everywhere and supplant a lot of cool/better stuff, simply by being present everywhere11:12

nogagplzdreamweaver was a real piece of shit too13:42
Romsteryeah that wasn't any better.13:43
jaegerIt was *FAR* better than frontpage13:43
jaegerIf you ever looked at the code they both generated13:43
jaegernetobjects fusion did way nastier shit than either of those, though13:43
Romstertrue it was better but still not the best13:43
Romsterman the code frontpage generated.....13:44
Romsternever seen netobjects fusion13:44
nogagplzseen it but never used13:44
Romsterprobably a good thing.13:44
jaegerapparently it's still around but I only saw the results of the 1996-1998 versions13:44
nogagplzhigh octane nightmare fuel?13:45
nogagplzto tvtropes13:46
jaegerIt generated pixel-perfect web pages even back in 1996.... by embedding EVERYTHING in tables13:46
jaegerevery single thing13:46
nogagplzlol wtf13:46
jaegerSo the page looked exactly the same in the GUI as a browser but it was completely unusable over dialup13:46
Romsterand dialup was big back then13:46
Romstermost browsers today render the same
Romsterback then i was pulling hair out due to div layers all behaving different on margins.13:53
nogagplzway to marginalise the problem13:57
Romsterway to make a pun of it13:57

frinnstI tried that, didnt notice any difference (yes i know it changes it in small increments)17:02
jaegerYou're not supposed to notice it, really :)17:02
jaegerIn my case it goes from 6500K to 3700K in about 10 seconds17:03
frinnstyeah but i specified some extreme values just to see if it worked17:03
jaegerso it's very noticeable and broken17:03
jaegerperhaps it didn't work with your driver17:03

Amnesiafrinnst: hm, I got a kernelpanic when trying to do the same:)20:02
Amnesiacouldn't be bothered to look further at it20:02
frinnstwhat, installing on usb?20:03
frinnstyou probably only need to append rootdelay=N to the kernel. since usb is slow to initialize20:03
Amnesianope, that didn't do the job20:04
frinnstpartition it with gpt so you can use uuid to mount it20:04
frinnstI have crux installed on a usb-stick in one of my hp microservers20:05

Amnesiahm, openelec is working fine over here20:12
Amnesiadunno whether there've been any improvements on omxplayer lately though20:13
jaegerI use openelec but haven't tried raspbmc, that's why I'm curious20:13
teK_I have had no reason to look for alternative solutions20:14

teK_how do you control openelec?20:17
teK_mouse and keyboard?20:17
jaegerI do, yeah, though I think it supports CEC if you have HDMI that does that20:18
AmnesiateK_: check out libcec20:18
teK_I used yatse for android20:19

teK_hm nice. looks really neat. As my TV just turns on when the pi is powered up.. can I reverse control it via the TV and this keyboard?20:22
frinnstyou need to use gpt for it to work without an initrd20:22
jaegerI have a nexus 7, I should try an xbmc remote for it20:23
AmnesiateK_: your tv's remote control should be sufficient20:23
teK_i have a toshiba with regza which is supposed to be exactly that.. hmmmm20:23
