Romsterprologic, i just got home. i'll have a go after i eat06:58
prologiccool :)07:37
prologicwant some incentive?07:37
Romsterwell when this is all done i can get hosting sorted with crux.07:38
*** SiFuh has joined #crux07:39
Romsterpacstrap i guess i could use the iso source todo that bit07:40
prologicwell I was gonna say07:41
prologicget it done by tonight07:41
prologicI'll throw you 0.01 BTC :)07:41
prologicI *could* do it myself ofc following all the documenation on docker.io07:41
prologicand several examples Iv'e found07:41
prologicbut gotta look after my daughter tonight :)07:41 <-- Good article about Microsofts secret war with tor07:43
Romsteri can probably manage this but i can't test it.07:44
prologicI can :)07:48
prologicjust build a base crux 3.0 image07:48
prologici.e: just core07:48
prologicand throw it my way to test07:48
prologicI believe you need to write a Dockerfile07:48
prologicand build a rootfs07:48
prologicfrom reading the docs07:49
prologicbut yeah more than happy to test07:49
prologicI can even throw you some free hosting on my already existing (Ubuntu+Docker) if you like :)07:49
prologicat least until it out gorws your needs07:49
Romstercould do that.07:49
prologicthe host itself is only the $5/month host 512MB RAM, 20GB Storage and 1TB Traffic07:50
prologicso there you go :)07:50
prologicit's logged07:50
prologic0.01 BTC and "some limited" free hosting :)07:50

prologicwho's running a later kernel than what 3.0 shipped with?09:14
frinnstprobably everyone09:15
frinnstyou should atleast run 3.10.x09:16
frinnsti usually run the latest stable/rc or from btrfs-next git09:18
prologiclatest stable09:19
prologicokie dokie :)09:19
prologicanyone use any tool(s) to help manage kernel updates/builds?09:20
frinnstI do it manually. monitor via rss and mailing list announcements09:21
prologicme too09:21
prologickk :)09:21
prologicI planned on upgrading my desktop kernel anyway09:21
prologicwant to play with docker on the desktop more09:21
frinnst <- looks quite lovely09:23
joacimno wasteful pci slots. i like it =)09:25
frinnstpricey, but that's to be expected09:26
prologicnice board09:31
prologicwhat would you use that for?09:31
*** cryptorchild has quit IRC09:31
prologic7x PCIe seems a lot of expandsion slots :)09:31
frinnstyeah i dont need it, but i *want* it09:32
prologicyes but why?09:32
prologicwhat *would* you use it for?09:32
prologicand the 7x PCIe?09:32
frinnstthey would mostly be empty09:33
prologicwhat a waste :)09:33
frinnstbut xeon and ecc + 8 dimms09:33
frinnstI WANT IT DAMNIT09:33
prologicI do like the 8x DDR dimms though09:33
prologicahh yeah09:33
prologicthat would be nice09:33
prologicbut I wouldn't need the 7x PCIe09:33

Romsterprologic, i'm not making much progress tonight. i was super tired i ended up napping and i had one of them days that i was that busy my mind pretty much said that's enough information. i can't concentrate on this tonight. i see i can do a core lot of ports for crux but after that the docker scripts/alterations i'm not so sure about. and i can't focus to do that this evening. I can have a go at it tomorrow.13:26
prologicnps :)13:31
prologicQ: Does make menuconfig normally pickup the old running config?13:31
prologicAnd bring it in?13:31
prologicI hate make oldconfig (and tbh have never used it)13:31
prologicI believe it really doesn't matter13:36
prologicmake listnewconfig is good :)13:36
prologicbut I always use make menuconfig13:36
prologicI think I hardly ever care about new options :)13:36
Romstermake oldmenuconfig does a configure with a older .config13:36
Romstermake menuconfig will ask for the changes13:37
Romsteri always do a zcat /proc/config.gz > ./.config ; make menuconfig13:37
Romsterthis has been a unproductive evening.13:38
*** DaViruz has joined #crux13:40
*** jdolan has quit IRC13:41
prologicthere's a make oldmenuconfig?13:42
prologicare you sure :)13:42
Romsteroldconfig sorry or use silentoldconfig13:44
Romsteroldconfig  - Update current config utilising a provided .config as base13:44
Romstersilentoldconfig - Same as oldconfig, but quietly, additionally update deps13:44
Romstermake help13:44
Romsterwill list all the stuff in the kernel directory13:45
Romsternow that i napped i do not know how long i'll be to get tired to sleep before work again.13:46
Romsteralso headache...13:46
prologicI'm recompiling a new kernel on my desktop :)13:46
prologicshould have a working docker environment soon I hope13:46
Romsteryou could just grab the necessary tarballs out of core for now13:47
Romsteroff the iso13:47
Romsteruse jaegers updated iso13:47
Romsterwish i could help.13:48
Romsterand it's only monday not like the end of the week yet...13:48
*** jdolan has joined #crux14:02
frinnstgod my body is falling apart14:18
frinnstshoulder still hurt from a pinched nerve and my wisdomteeth decided to start growing again14:18
prologicnot good :/14:22
prologicI'm starting to get RSI in my wrist14:22
prologicbtw http://docker.io14:22
prologicin case you missed the cool stuff :)14:22
prologicI'm building a port for it14:22
prologicwith instructions for how to get CRUX+Docker (full environment) working nicely14:23
just_rexhi guys. @frinnst: i know how bad wisdom teeth can get, my sympathy -_-14:24
Romsterwould you like my rsi in my wrist and a headache and on occasion a pinched nerve in my same wrist on that.14:24
Romsterheadache only happened tonight though14:24
Romsteri had wisdom teeth pain once never again14:25
Romsterworst pain ever could not sleep could not concentrate on anything i wanted to yank the buggers out.14:25
Romsterbut the pain went away and i still have them.14:25
frinnstthe tooth itself doesnt hurt, but im having trouble closing my jaw :)14:26
Romsterif they give me more grief i might have to get them out.14:26
frinnstits growing straight into the other tooth, pushing everything forward14:26
Romstermine have not fully emerged from my gum14:27
frinnstmine just did a year or so ago14:27
Romsterand i'm 36 now so i dunno if they ever will14:27
Romstergood idea14:28
just_rexfrinnst, that's an impacted wisdom tooth, i've had one but didn't make any problems, anyway remove it as soon as possible, it can get nasty :/14:29
Romstermine just don't know what todo14:31
Romsterso far only one major tooth ache and then they have not bothered me so i guess i'll leave them for now.14:31
Plazmawow. i've not used crux since 2.8 when it wasn't official multilib.. nice to see folks in here keeping it alive :D14:32
Romsterwe try too14:32
Plazmaso crux is straight multilib now right? it runs on 32-bit and 64-bit?14:41
jaegermore correct to say it requires 64-bit hardware and can run 32-bit applications14:42
Plazmaso it will not run on 32-bit hardware then..14:42
jaegermultilib dists won't run on pure 32-bit hardware14:42
Plazmaor at least 3.014:42
Plazmaok understood14:42
Plazmai was confused on that whole concept14:42
Plazmaand wrong , apparently14:42
jaegerUnderstandable, it isn't clear at first14:42
Plazmai was using 2.8 and i recall the multilib stuff was kinda of a tack on , and i think i ran into some issues with getting some of my stuff to work.. that's when i kinda left it alone for a whlie.. i forgot though what it was all about.. and 3.0 was right on the frindge of being released14:43
jaegerIt was an unofficial side-project at the time, pretty much14:46
jaegermultilib, I mean14:46
Plazmayea that's right14:46
Plazmawell, might as well put it on a vm and see what happens14:47
just_rexjaeger, how can I disable the multilib support completely? I know I can do this in the kernel config, and I did, but I do not need any 32-bit compatibility or libraries. should I recompile gcc with --without-multilib? what about /lib32?14:51
*** DaViruz has quit IRC14:51
*** BitPuffin has joined #crux14:55
frinnstif you want it gone completely you will need to rebuild the toolchain14:56
frinnstits probably not worth the effort14:56
frinnstthe current solution is a nice compromise14:57
Romsterwe decided that a multilib gcc is little gain to making it pure for those that do not need 32bit14:57
frinnstbut if you really want to i'd suggest you check out the x86_64 2.8 git repos14:57
Romsterthe only difference is the inclusion of glibc-3214:57
Romsterand the one extra option to kernel config14:57
*** Kruppt has joined #crux14:58
jaegerthey've pretty much summed it up... I'd recommend not going to that much effort but if you absolutely want to, rebuilding the toolchain is what you need14:59
Romsterthe majority of the work is in compat-32 repository15:02
Romsterwhich oyu only install if you have a need for them15:03
jaegerIf you go with the simplest solution of not installing/using 32-bit software just keep in mind that glibc-32 needs to be left installed or the toolchain breaks15:03
just_rexI won't touch it for now, thank you all for the clarifications. I can live with /lib32 for now.15:05
Romsterreally it's bugger all space consumed.15:05
Romsterand having a lib32 will only be a pain to those with OCD15:06
*** RageRiot has joined #crux15:07
joacimmesses up tab completion =)15:07
Romsterthat bad15:08
just_rex@joacim, yes it does, it annoys but I've learned to live with typing the slash by myself :D15:14
Romsteroh that bit ya15:14
Romsteri jsut type the slash never gave it another thought15:14
joacimfound this some time ago and thought it was interesting15:16
Plazmago kernel compile go15:19
Romsteri think i have stumbled upon that along time ago15:19

Plazmacp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz  .. should this be arch/x86_64 ?15:27
Romsterit's a symlink15:28
Romsteri do prefer to use arch/x86_86/boot/bzImage15:28
Romsteri do prefer to use arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage15:29
Plazmahandbook says x86 so15:29
Romsterdon't forget System.map15:29
Plazmajust FYI in case that was intentional15:29
prologicI don't think it cares really15:29
prologicmine's just /boot/vmlinux15:29
prologicI just "make install"15:29
Romsteri have multiple kernels installed.15:29
prologicwhat for?15:29
prologicit's not like you can run two at once :)15:30
Romstervmlinux-$verson and$version15:30
Romsterbecause i can15:30
prologicdo you ever switch to other kernel versions?15:30
jaegerI keep my previous "known working" config just in case15:30
Romsterand if i happen to mess up i can boot a older kernel15:30
prologicI almost have never done so15:30
prologicI norrmalyl keep the old version15:30
prologiclike jeager15:30
Romsteri can just tab at boot up pick older kernel15:30
prologicso you just keep the previous version15:31
Romsterif i have issues15:31
prologiclike most of us do :)15:31
prologicman it's late15:31
prologicTue Jan 21 01:31:24 EST 201415:31
prologicstill haven't finished docker on crux yet15:31
Romsteryeahi'm about to pass out15:31
prologicgot to build the aufs file system15:31
Romsteri'd help but i'm not in a good state tonight.15:32
Plazmaso since crux seems to be very BSD like . why not just use a BSD ?15:32
Plazmaalways curious on that to you lot15:32
Romsteri'm pretty sure BSD has less hardware support but i couldbe wrong15:33
prologicPlazma, because CRUX != BSD15:34
prologicwhen we say BSD-like15:34
prologicwe have BSD-style init scripts15:34
prologicand a BSD-style ports system15:34
prologicI don't think anything else is similar15:34
prologicit was the original Per Liden design15:34
Plazmathat's what i'm implying as well, i realize it's not a BSD15:34
prologicand it's stuck with us15:34
prologicand quice frankly we all like it :)15:34
just_rexyes, Crux uses the Linux kernel, not the BSD kernels15:34
prologicbut we are branching out I guess15:35
prologicor at least someo of us15:35
prologicCRUX ARM, CRUX PPC (old?)15:35
Plazmabut yea, just curious the whole "if it walks like a duck.." type of deal.. worked hard to make a linux kernel/os function like a bSD one .. somewhat15:35
prologicI believe some are running CRUX on others kernels too afaik15:35
just_rexboth BSD and Linux are UNIX-like, but are not UNIX and are not the same15:35
prologicthe BSD-ish has nothing to do with LInux15:35
prologicit's more of a design/style thing15:35
Plazmayea i'm aware15:35
prologicjust_rex, actually that's wrong :)15:36
prologicBSD and LInux are both kernels15:36
Plazmathe BSD philosophy has many things + the kernel from the ground up so it's one useable system.. linux is just a kernel with that stuff 'tacked' on .. if you will15:36
prologicyou're referring to the userland experience15:36
prologicit's confusing :)15:36
prologicFreeBSD the kernel is also FreeBSD the userland OS15:36
prologicwhilst Linux - not so much15:36
prologicLinux + Debian/Ubuntu/CRUX/Arch/blah balh blah15:36
Plazmathat's what i attempted to say but failed15:36
just_rexyes, I meant to say that too :D15:37
prologicI came across minix3 yesterday15:37
prologiclooks quite nice15:37
Plazmai need to toy with minix15:37
prologicbut obviously very lacking in hw support15:37
prologicit's not worth my time I'm afraid15:37
prologicperhaps as a kvm guest maybe15:37
prologicbut the lack of spport is well just not worth it15:38
just_rexI've tried a lot of distros, I used Debian a lot, then Arch, but I am very dissatisfied with systemd so I switched all my computers to CRUX and I am happy now :)15:38
prologicit needs the kind of hacking and support Linux/BSD has received15:38
*** doomicide has quit IRC15:38
Plazmawell i think that's always been the thing.. linux kernel tends to have better hardware support for newer devices as you have more people hacking around on it usually...but often BSD has better drivers.. that tkae a bit longer to get into the main distrobutions15:38
prologicor BSD forks e.g: Darwin15:38
just_rexI keep an eye on FreeBSD, seems interesting, now the 10th version is released15:38
Plazmaand many linux drivers are taken from freebsd15:38
prologicI've said it before and I'll say it again15:38
prologicsystemd is an abomination15:39
just_rexsystemd is the worst. period.15:39
Plazmaprologic: we've met before but i don't remember where15:39
Romsteryou do realise you can use runit form that AUR in arch15:39
Plazmaprologic: were you the python circuits guy?15:39
prologicI am15:39
Plazmaprologic: ahh15:39
prologicstill going strong15:39
Plazmaprologic: bitchin man.. not sure if you remember me, we didn't talk much15:40
Plazmabut through rebel_kid i think15:40
prologic10th year of dev this year15:40
just_rexI've tried that on Arch but I prefer the CRUX way :D15:40
Plazmanow he left and came back and left again because he's a chode :)15:40
prologicI still plan to try our runit15:40
prologiciirc it's compatible with rc-style init scripts15:40
Plazmai just have major ADD with the linux vs bsd stuff as well as everything else in my life .. i can never decide and when i do i never stay with it for long lol15:40
Romsteri used to run runit on crux ages ago was good15:41
prologicPlazma, there's medication fo r that :)15:41
Plazmai'm starting to think i need it, honestly15:41
Plazmai can't decide between editors, os's , toilet paper brands even :P15:41
Plazmawell not that far15:41
Plazmabut you get the idea15:41
Romsterlol oh dear15:42
Plazmaneedless to say i waste a lot of time :P15:42
joacimI just get whatever looks normal and doesnt have any stupid branding15:42
joacimproblem is, most things doesnt look all that normal and most things have some kind of stupid branding15:43
joacimlike army grade motherboards and  whatever15:43
Romsterand value vs quality for money15:43
Plazmaoh dear15:43
Plazmalooks like i messed up the grub install15:44
Plazmaran the script and made grub.cfg .. assumed it configuredit all for me but looks like i tdidn't15:44
Plazmaguess ill have to chroot15:44
Romsterdone that plenty of times15:44
Romsteri'm so getting to bed before i mess myself up for work later.15:44

Plazmabut must have typoed something.. got a grub display at least15:52
Amnesiasystemd's fucking awesome!15:57
Plazmahmm, not liking that.. not sure why.. got /dev/sda1 as /boot and /dev/sda3 as / .. i've copied the default line from the menuentry in the handbook and it's still failing16:03
Plazmaensured root was /dev/sda316:03
Plazmafor grub16:03

jaegerPlazma: pastebin your grub.cfg somewhere if you want another eye on it16:15
Plazmaone sec16:16
*** BitPuffin has quit IRC16:28
Plazmajaeger: menuentry "CRUX 3.0" { linux (hd0,msdos2)/boot/vmlinuz-3.5.4 root=/dev/sda2 quiet16:30
jaegeryou said /dev/sda1 was /boot? try (hd0,msdos1)16:30
Plazmaah ok16:31
Plazmai was trying to find the reference to that syntax but i could not on grub's page16:31
Plazmaso i must have overlooked it16:31
jaegerthe hd numbering is 0-origin, the partition numbering is not16:31
jaegerstrange choice on grub's part16:32
Plazmano go .. /boot/vmlinuz not found16:34
Plazmashould have just had one single slice .. prob be easier.. but i like having /boot on it's own16:35
Plazmaoh wait hang on16:36
jaegeryou can also use some tab completion in the grub shell to find files16:37
jaegerthings like ls (hd0,<tab>16:37
jaegeralso search --file16:37
Plazmahad linux (hd0,msdos1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 .. now tried linux (hd0,msdos1)/boot/vmlinuz root=dev/sda316:38
Plazmamight have to d just that with a grub shell16:38
Plazmai should have used lilo .. way easier16:39
jaegergrub's fine once you get used to the differences... but if you prefer lilo, definitely use it16:39
Plazmai should learn grub better really so it's a good exercise16:39
Plazmaso it looks like have hd0,msdos1 and hd0,msdos3 .. msdos1 i believe is my 100M /boot partition16:40
Plazmaand msdos3 is my /16:40
jaegertry ls (hd0,msdos1)/ and see if you can see the files in /boot16:41
Plazmaah yes you said that, sorry16:41
Plazmayep sure do16:41
Plazmaoh i bet i know the problem then16:42
jaegerso linux (hd0,msdos1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda3 is likely what you want16:42
Plazmathat's what ihad before and it failed16:42
jaegerWith what error/output?16:42
Plazmacoudln't find /boot/vmlinuz .. but i think i know the problem now16:43
Plazmaill report back in a sec16:43
jaegerah, sorry, if should be (hd0,msdos1)/vmlinuz16:43
jaegermeant to fix that but I'm working on 6 things at work, heh16:43
Plazmahaha, that's what i just tried16:45
Plazmaand it failed again but it was reporting something different so16:45
Plazmai may not have saved it16:45
Plazmajaeger: so did you specify why you prefer a bsd-ish linux to bsd itself? i can't recall if you did above16:46
jaegerwell, (hd0,msdos1)/vmlinuz makes more sense because it corresponds to /dev/sda1 which you mount as /boot... so vmlinuz exists in there, not in /boot/boot/vmlinuz16:46
jaegerunless you do some symlink inception or something16:46
jaegerno reason to do that, though16:46
jaegerI don't have a strong preference concerning bsd-ish. I use crux because it's an interesting hobby16:46
Plazmabam di it16:48
*** BitPuffin has joined #crux16:48
Plazmai used grub-mkconfig and it put a whole bunch of garbage up front16:48
Plazmajust removed it and made a tiny manual grub.cfg file and it worked16:48
linXeagood answer jaeger .. same reason I use what I use.16:48
Plazmaaaaand it failed on somethin gelse now, damnit16:48
jaegerI usually configure it manually as well16:48
jaegerthough I've tried to make sure grub-mkconfig works16:48
Plazmacannot open device sda3 .. unknow block.. i wonder if i screwed up fstab16:49
*** cryptorchild_ has joined #crux16:49
jaegerit might require versioning, like vmlinuz-3.12.8 or something16:49
jaegerif you specified root=/dev/sda3 in your grub.cfg it'll mount that before it gets to the fstab processing. more likely either your filesystem or controller support is missing from the kernel16:49
Plazmahmm.. maybe16:49
Plazmai didn't do much configuring with the kernel16:49
Plazmait's a vmware guest so16:50
jaegerdid you use the 3.0 ISO?16:51
linXeaguess you need to add "Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA" support for vmware to work.16:52
jaegerdepends on the controller used, vmware supports several16:52
linXeathat's true.. but those are the most commonly used afaik.16:53
Plazmaah yea.. 3.0 ISO16:56
jaegerthe defconfig on the ISO supports ATA_PIIX but it doesn't support all the options vmware supports if I remember right. And if you made your own config instead of using that, it wouldn't matter :)16:56

Plazmayea the intel stuff seems to be already selected for my kernel17:00
jaegerYou might check with 'lspci -k' which controller is in use17:01
Plazmathe only other thing i could do is try copying from x86 vs x86_64 the and kernel17:01
jaegerIf you mean from the x86 or x86_64 subdirectory in arch/ they're the same17:02
jaegerwell, ok, that's not really true... but the bzImage file is a symlink17:02
Plazmajust throwingit out there though17:03
jaegercheck lspci for ATA,IDE,SATA,SCSI, that will tell you which one you need17:03

PlazmaPIIX4 it looks like17:11
Plazmahaving them built as module vs into the kernel shouldn't matter should it?17:12
tilmanhow would the kernel load a module from disk, if it cannot access the disk b/c the driver is missing? :P17:15
tilman(it matters for slch elementary stuff!)17:15
tilman(crux doesnt use initrd)17:16

Plazmaaso PIIX4 is definitely there yet it's still failing.. any suggestions ? rebuilding the kernel again18:15
frinnstdat backlog18:23
frinnstwhat are you installing on?18:23
Plazmai recall with 2.8 over a year and a half ago i had very similar isseus and i fixed it, but i forgot what i did18:24
frinnstvmware? Feigr did that today, you need fusion mpt support for your scsi controller18:24
Plazmaand it was some driver thing in the kernel i'm sure18:24
Plazmahmm alright , that under scsi drivers?18:25
frinnst [*] Fusion MPT device support  --->18:25
frinnstno, directly under drivers18:25
Plazmaahh awesome18:25
Plazmalet's see if it works18:25
Plazmaso i know crux is minimal but.. i assume that when you install a package eitehr through ports or pre-built .. they come with manpags?18:26
frinnstports create "prebuilt" so its not separate like in freebsd18:27
Plazmaahh right18:28
*** Kruppt has quit IRC18:32

Plazmaoh hm.. sr0 driver: sr .. unable to mount root fs18:34
jaegernwe: was it you talking about Intel NUCs a couple weeks back?18:42
jaegerPlazma: did you verify which controller is needed with lspci?18:43
Plazmayea PIIX 4 it says18:43
Plazmait'sin there too18:44
Plazma82371AB PIIX418:44
jaegersomething that might throw it off is that it could be using PIIX for the cdrom but not for the disk controller18:44
Plazmawell sr0 seems to indicate a cdrom driver later in the error debugs18:44
Plazmaafter the VFS stuff18:44
jaegercan you pastebin the lspci output?18:44
Plazmauhh.. possibly18:44
jaegerif not, just list the modules shown by 'lspci -k | grep "in use"'18:45
Plazmai don't know if i can pastebin it but i might be able to screenshot18:46
Plazmawell hmm - agpgart-intel ata-piix mptspi pcieport (repeated a bunch of times) uhci_hcd e1000 ehci_hcd18:47
jaegerata-piix and mptspi are the important ones here18:47
jaegerata-piix you already have in18:47
Plazmawell i just enabled fusion mpt in my kernel18:48
Plazmawhen i did the most rebuilt18:48
Plazmai do have an older version of vmware player too so maybe that's partly to blame18:48
jaegerIn the fusion MPT menu do you have "Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI" enabled?18:49
Plazmai don't think i saw the option but i'm looking now18:49
jaegerMPT covers SPI, FC, and SAS devices18:50
Plazmaoh it appears i did not.. hmm18:51
*** Rotwang has joined #crux18:52
Plazmaforgot it had options to it.. let's rebuild and see!18:52
jaegerI'm not very familiar with vmware player but at least in vsphere it's not uncommon for an IDE/ATA device to be configured for the optical drive and an SPI/SAS device for the hard disk18:54
jaegerseems like it might be the case for player as well18:54
*** BitPuffin has quit IRC18:55
Plazmai wonder if i got a cheap netbook how well crux would work and support the wireless..etc18:57
jaegerYou could always search around for "linux on X" where X is the model you want... if linux works well on it, crux will18:58
Plazmait's an odd feeling.. it's a pain in the ass to go through all o fthis but at the same time it's not that bad and it'skinda fun19:01
Plazmai have no idea why this annoying tedious task is fun for me19:01
Plazmai guess that is one thing to your point jaeger .. if linux runs well on it, then any distro likely will run, at least19:03
jaegerYeah... there are obviously out-of-the-box differences but the linux kernel is still the foundation19:04
Plazmawell i got past that issue, but now i have another :/19:06
Plazmaand it scrolls so fast i can't read it well19:06
Plazmabut asking me for root passwrod for maintenance.. fdisk -l yields nothing19:06

rmullPlazma: Sorry, I came in late - do you have any livecd or something that you know works? Maybe you could snoop on someone else's kernel config.19:21
Plazmarmull: oddly enough i'm considering that19:22
jaegerPlazma: can you manually mount /dev/sda3 in the maintenance mode?19:23
Plazmadon't think so.. fdisk -l doesn't even list it19:23
Plazmayea, ext4 support is built in too so that's not the issue19:24
Plazmaonce i get this working i'm going to upload the kernel config file to your guyss wiki or something :)19:24
jaegerIf fdisk can't even see it that kinda sounds like disk controller again19:24
Plazmayea :/19:24
Plazmaahh, fb1024 is much nicer19:26
nwePlazma: when you booting up with crux installer have you run lspci -k |less19:27
nweand then check after your SATA controller? to see which kernel driver it using?19:27

Plazmajaeger: just kinda bothers me beause i don't know what i did wrong.. but i did a diff on our configs and you had way more21:23
jaegerhow odd21:23
jaegerI wonder if the config got truncated or corrupted in some way21:23
Plazmaok so this is probably stupid but.. pkgutils like pkgadd .. they are used mostly when you download packages manually yes?21:29
Plazmaprt-get seems to get packages from ports.. ?21:29
Plazmaor am i confusing things..21:29
jaegerpkgadd installs packages that are created by pkgmk from ports Pkgfiles21:29
jaegerprt-get wraps them all with some nice functions21:29
Plazmaahh ok21:29
Plazmaso packages are all gotten from ports then21:30
Plazmaits just their binary21:30
jaegersometimes people have binary packages around but mostly you build from source21:30
rexichafaics, [core], [opt], and [xorg] come compiled on the CRUX disk, you just compile the rest from the other ports; when you update the ports, you actually rsync the changes to the Pkgbuild and patch files host->local machine21:32
Plazmai guess when i hear packages i think binary21:35
rexichif you need a binary package but you are offline, or you are too lazy to build it (firefox for example), you can pkgadd it from the ISO/CD21:36
rexichbut be careful, dependencies, lib versions etc.21:36
Plazmai was just hoping there would be some repository of binary packages or something i could do for large things such as that21:36
Plazmaor libreoffice21:37
rexichinterestingly, from what I've noticed from its Pkgfile, LibreOffice isn't compiled at all, just repackaged for CRUX21:37
jaegerI think libreoffice is generally regarded as not worth the effort to compile over using the binary distribution21:39
prologic"packages" are just tar balls of built software21:40
prologicwe provide all the "right" tools to help build, pacakge and manage your system(s)21:41
prologicpkgutls + prt-get and/or pkg-get21:41
prologicnot many use pkg-get - and I suspect it's because modern hardware is quite fast and compile times low21:41
prologicat least that's true on a Core i7 :)21:42

jaegerwe don't have an updated gnome repo as far as I'm aware21:47
prologicI'd be a contrib maintainer myself21:47
joacimI thought about getting the Q6600 or something, but I figured it would be a better idea to go for the E7600. better single thread performance, and my power supply is already being strained by a GTX 260. which is also top of the line cutting edge technology21:47

jaegerThere are trades as always... a less complicated packaging system has fewer features21:57
prologicjoacim: those are not for use other than for an install media21:57
prologici.e: install from usb/cd21:57
prologicthere's an entire build process that builds all the core/opt/xorg ports and packages up the installer (a bash script) onto the iso21:57

prologicCRUX is simple because we make it and keep it that way21:58
rexichthat's just so cool :D21:58

prologici.e: we don't implement features that are complex with heavy requirements21:58

Plazmathat's interesting..22:11
Plazmaalso.. i wonder why it's not pulling the 64bit one22:12
rmullWhat repo is it in?22:13
Plazmaoh no that was for fpc22:16
Plazmai didn't lookfor joe, that was easy enough to compile on it's own22:16
rmullthe port is out of date22:16
rmullcontact the maintainer22:16
rmullRomster: ping22:16
Plazmaold version too22:17
Plazmahow come the port though isn't using the x86_64 package22:17
rmullProbably because it hasn't been updated since crux switched to 64-bit22:17
rmulljust guessing though, check the commit log for clues22:18
*** blueness has joined #crux22:25
Plazmawe.. 2.6.2 fpc was released about a year ago now22:26
Plazmaand the port is 2.622:26
Plazmaso it's probably a good guess :D22:27
Plazmawell i got it installed via source anyway.. not suing a port22:30
Plazmathe latest so22:30
Plazmais ther a fancy option in prt-get to display the rough estimate of how much disk space a port + dependencies will take?22:31
rexichPlazma: as far as I know, nope :(22:32
Plazmabeen having some fun and now have 4.8/8G of this VM full22:32
Plazmajust installing random shit to see if it works22:32
rmullYou could build the package and check the size of teh package before installing it, but nothing ahead of time afaik22:32
Plazmahmm.. like prt-get build or something?22:33
rexichnope, there is no such command :/22:40
rexichI usually estimate it from the info about the packaged tarball22:41
rexichi.e the package's unpacked size22:41
rexichbut from one package to hand22:41
rmullYou can use pkgmk to build without installing22:41
prologicthis is how package area built22:43
Plazmayea thats what i was thinking with pkgmk22:43
prologicpgmk does not install22:43
prologicpkgadd does22:43
Plazmafor a minimal linux distro that doesn't cater to newbies, you guys are pretty friendly22:44
prologicyes yes we are :)22:44
prologicand we like to keep it that way22:44
prologicnot catering to Linux novices/n00bs does not imply we will not help you22:44
prologicin fact most of us are more than willing :)22:44
prologiceven about non-CRUX issues like kernels, drivers, software, suggestsions22:45
prologiceven the occasional off-topic discussion :)22:45
*** jdolan has joined #crux22:54
Plazmaso i thought when you did make menuconfig .. it tried to detect your hardware and select kernel options for you?22:54
Plazmamaybe i'm wrong22:54
jaegermenuconfig doesn't.... you might be thinking of localyesconfig or localmodconfig22:54
rexichPlazma: nope, if you do not have a .config file already in the folder it will create a default one22:55
Plazmaahh maybe22:56
prologicthis is a myth22:56
prologicthe kernel config never detects your hwared22:56
prologicit never has and probably never will22:56
prologicyou _have_ to identify your hardware yourself22:56
jaegerlocalyesconfig and localmodconfig are probably the closest to it22:56
prologicit's a bit of a pain spot for me too22:56
prologicbut it's not that big of a deal22:56
prologicI probably wouldn't recommend it though :)22:57
prologicyou'd be building the entire kernel!22:57
prologicit'd be quite large :)22:57
prologicour/my recommendation is to "learn the kernel"22:57
prologicit's valuable to do so22:57
jaegerI think we're talking about different things here, heh22:57
prologicstart with the cd/iso's kernel22:57
prologicand tweak22:57
prologicwhat am I getting confide about? :)22:58
jaegerlocalyesconfig and localmodconfig don't build the "entire kernel"22:58
prologicokay not strictly speaking22:58
jaegerthey make a config based on what's currently loaded22:58
prologicbut localyesconfig would select everytig right?22:58
prologicoh really?22:58
jaegerthat's allyesconfig22:58
prologicooh I see22:58
prologiclocal yes config22:58
prologicnever used that hehe :)22:58
prologicgood one!22:58
prologicI +1 that22:58
jaegerlocal*config guess based on the current config and loaded modules so it's a bit of a combo22:58
prologicboot the iso cd, install, install the kernel it ships with22:59
jaegernot quite hardware detection but as close as you'll get without another tool22:59
prologicand make localyesconfig22:59
prologicgood idea :)22:59
prologicat least it gets you started22:59
prologicit'll work fine22:59
prologicbecause we ship a decent kernel and config on the CD/ISO22:59
prologicwith enough modules/builtins for most hardware22:59
rexichinteresting :) I build the kernel with make menuconfig, always, I know my systems from inside out22:59
prologicright? :)23:00
jaegerregarding the config targets I wonder how many times you'd have to build a randconfig to get a working one, statistically23:00
rexichguys, does anyone still use SCSI today?23:00
RotwangSCSI as a protocol probably most of us [;23:01
prologicdunno :)23:01
prologicmaybe someone should test this23:01
prologicwith kvm and a bit of Python/Fabric :)23:01
rexichthe CRUX kernel from the CD has SCSI support, according to the Handbook23:01
prologicYes SCSI is still used everywhere23:02
prologicmostly for USB for consumer stuff afaik23:02
rexichwell, I don't have such hardware, only SATA, AHCI and IDE23:02
prologicYou will need it for USB Mass Storage afaik23:02
prologicor irrc23:02
jaegerIt's rare to find some of the older SCSI hardware such as centronics connectors around but the protocols are still quite common23:02
rexichprologic: is it something like a USB to SCSI bridge?23:02
prologicnot sure :)23:02
prologicI don't compile kernels every day :)23:02
prologicpretty sure I _have_ to have the scsi sub system enabled for usb devices23:03
jaegerfor mass storage, yes23:03
jaegerfor HID/PID, no23:03
jaegerif you're using SATA, SPI, SAS, or USB mass storage, it's SCSI underneath23:03
jaegerprobably others as well but that's the general idea23:04
prologicthere you go :)23:04
prologicthanks meager :)23:04
prologicf'n auto correct23:04
rexichthank you jaeger meister :D23:04
prologicSCSI is still widely used and certainly not dead23:04
prologicit's used a lot in the commercial/enterprise market23:04
prologice.g: iSCSI23:04
prologicIHMO I don't think it'll go away any time soon23:05
rexichI see. maybe the protocol won't, but the connectors yes. I haven't seen SCSI around since...I can't remember :)23:05
jaegermostly SAS these days23:05
rexichyes, SAS23:06
prologicyes I suspect you're right23:06

*** BitPuffin has joined #crux23:07
rexichI have a SAS disk, but I don't have such an interface, I've got it as a gift and it sits in the pantry, gathering dust...maybe it's it a connector a little bigger than SATA?23:07
rexichbut smaller than SCSI?23:08
jaegerThere are actually about 10 different SAS connectors but mostly they're similar to SATA, yes23:08
jaegerSFF-8482 connectors are compatible with SATA drives. You can even run SATA drives on SAS controllers but not the other way around23:09
rexichactually, now when I see it, it's not SAS, it's only one connector, there is no power connector on this hard drive...strange!23:10
rexichit's the one above
rexichis that SCSI?23:11
jaegerThat looks like Ultra32023:12
jaegerolder SCSI, yeah23:12
jaeger68- or 80-pin SCA or SCA223:13
*** Rotwang has quit IRC23:13
rexichinteresting :) thank you jaeger23:13
jaegerI might have a controller that can run that in a box if you need one :)23:14
rexichI'm not sure the drive is worth the effort, I think it's broken :(23:15
jaegerat this point it wouldn't be too surprising23:16
jaegerI think I might have one or two of thsoe around in the 9GB range :D something like that23:18
rexichmy dad brought it to me, he told me his friend threw it away, so if I can I should try formatting it, checking it if it's okay and then use it for whatever I wish, but I don't have that kind of a controller, so the drive is a mystery :D23:18
rexichand it's 80 GB, so...idk23:18
jaegerIf you were really curious I bet you could find a controller for it on ebay or at a local computer shop but it's probably not worth the effort23:19
rexichwell, we don't have eBay here :)23:19
jaegernothing similar?23:19
rexichnope. paypal doesn't allow transactions with my country. I can buy online directly from a debit card, but the taxes and fees are kinda too much23:20
rexichand the shipping, the customs...expensive. especially if it's 50+ EUR23:21
frinnstwhy dont they allow it? is your country a member of the "axis of evil" or something? :D23:26
frinnstmacedonia, right?23:26
rexichaxis of evil? whaaat? hahaha23:28
rexichto be honest, I don't care if I can't use ebay, most of the stuff I need can be found here or in Serbia, so I can travel and get it there23:28
rexichor order it there and they can send me the stuff here23:29
frinnstyeah, but still wierd23:30
rexichit's disrespectful, but it's their problem, not mine. less money for them!23:32
frinnstoops, late23:33
rexichbye frinnst23:33
