prologicIt was the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB05:17
prologicunfortunately the URL to PCCaseGear's website is returning a "Not Found" in their product listing anymore05:18
prologicjaeger:  I assume a 760 would work just as well?05:18
diverseI am using two GTX 560 Ti cards and they work fine, I don't see why the latest GTX 700 series wouldn't work.05:28
prologicI might take a walk up to my local IT shop on campus05:34
prologicand see if they have a 660 to later in that series05:34

blueskyHello Folks: Having been impressed with ArchLinux; I wanted to try CRUX. I need to compile Realtek8188SU WiFI drivers, does the base install have Kernel headers for driver compiling? Thanks09:21
Romsterbluesky, you compile the kernel manually and make modules_install so it'll have kernel headers.09:22
Romsterthe only part that's not handled by ports.09:22
Romster4TB hdd's are still too expensive... i can get two 3tb hdd's for the price of one 4tb hdd.09:24
blueskyRomster,  So CRux 3.0 iso will have driver source for Realtek 8188SU chipset?, I did download the drivers from realtek. I may have to copy that to HD  before kernel compilation?09:26
Romsterno it probably wount if it's got a kernel module though it'll work but you may need to grab the firmware if it has one.09:28
blueskyYes it does09:39

Romsteryeah right frinnst use a time machine to go forward a few years :D14:54
RomsterDigit, you'll be cursing the compiling unless you got a fast machine or got very few ports installed.14:54
Digiti'm a gentoo fanboi too.  i'm comfortable with compile times14:55
Romsterdoesn't bother me much14:56
Romsterand the fact i got a 5 node distcc setup now.14:56
Romsterbut jaeger ha sa what was it 24 core system though it's really only a 12 core with hyper threading to get another 10% or so out of it.14:58
jaegerI had 16 cores in the workstation but I "downgraded"14:59
jaeger8 cores @ 3.6GHz is more useful to me at work than 16 cores @ 2.26GHz now14:59
jaegerthe 24 core firefox build tests were done in a VMware cluster15:00
Romsteroh right.15:01
Romsteryeah not everything uses SMP that well.15:01
doomicideI compile on an amd dual-core system from ~200615:06
doomicideit's ok though, firefox doesn't get updates that often15:07
Romsterand even so it's not bad ot let it compile overnight.15:14
Digitas i compiled my kernel the other night, i actually had a moment where i craved a slower machine... so i could read more of it.  ^_^  i'm sure if i did have a slower machine though, that novelty wouldnt last long.15:18
Romsteryou can turn off all but 1 core of a multicore system and set it's speed to the lowest state15:19
Romsterso i can go as low as a single core 800MHz machine :D15:19
Romsterthan my usual 3.4GHz quad core.15:19
RomsterDigit, just pipe the output to a file.15:20
Digitheh, not /that/ interested.  ^_^   hrmm, could maybe pipe the output to a file/script ensemble that causes it to all scroll by on screen much slower, as if it were on a slower machine.  lol.  maybe even just adding a sleep 1 to every line would be enough.  ^_^15:30
Romsterreadline or something in a sleep loop.15:31
Romsterdon't worry i do some crazy ideas.15:33
Romstersleep time later.15:42
doomicideRomster, it takes 1,5-2h so it's ok15:44
*** ody has quit IRC15:46
niklaswehmm have someone get this problem? afppasswd: can't open /etc/afppasswd even when the file exists.17:13
tilmanpro tip:17:17
tilmanstrace -eopen -o/tmp/log YOURPROGRAM17:17
tilmanthen search /tmp/log for afppasswd17:17
tilman(blue pill kinda stuff)17:18
tilmanthe easy way would be to ls -l /etc/afppasswd17:18
niklaswetilman: but I have create the file :)17:18
tilmani don't see how that has anything to do with what i suggested ;>17:18
niklaswe 19:18 <@tilman> the easy way would be to ls -l /etc/afppasswd :)17:19
niklasweah forgot it :)17:19
tilmanso you decided to skip the pro tip part?17:19
niklaswenope, I have run it and I see premission denied17:19
tilmanso there you got your answer17:19
tilmanniklaswe: and ls -l does print the permissions of the file :-)17:20
niklaswetrue, but root owning the file :)17:21
