cruxbot[contrib.git/3.0]: harfbuzz-icu: fixes bug #98301:50
Romsterz3bra, don't use exotic CFLAGS on those ports it'l only break. typically -march=x64_64 -O2 is enough to work.01:52
Romsterthe rest of the ports should be fine with your custom CFLAGS01:53

z3brafine and you ? :)07:05
z3bracool :)07:07
nweso what are you doing man?07:07
z3braI woke up to a failed compilation of gcc07:07
z3bramy system just can't compile glibc-32 and gcc07:07
z3braeach time I fix an error, an other occur, that's silly :/07:08
z3brawhat about you ?07:10
nweoh :(  I just got to work, so I taking a coffee right now07:11
z3brajust drank mine :)07:14
nwehehe :)07:16
z3braI don't have sudo access anymore on my PC07:24
Romstertimcowchip firefox#27.0-3.pkg.tar.gz uploading minor fix for fixed broken icon link07:27
Romsterz3bra, i can upload them ports but they should compile for you07:29
Romsterwhat CFLAGS have you set z3bra ?07:29
z3brathe default ones07:29
z3bra-02 -march=x86_64 -pipe07:30
Romsterthat should work then07:30
z3brait does not.07:30
Romsterso is gcc currently working?07:30
z3braIt complains that it can execute some bootstrap07:30
z3bragcc works (the version installed, 4.7.2)07:30
z3braI'm rying to compile 4.7.3 (the ports version)07:30
Romsterrebuild binutils libmpfr libgmp libmpc then try gcc again07:31
Romsterprt-get update -fr  binutils libmpfr libgmp libmpc07:32
z3brayeah i've done taht :)07:32
Romsterhmm well i'll build it and upload it too
Romsterthen you can download and pkgadd -u it07:34
Romsterprobably broken tool chain but i don't know why.07:34
prologicRomster, please email me the process and/or script you use to build ports and upload them to -- I'd like to work with you to automate this for x86_64 and provide a service (at least for x86_64 and 3.0, later on x86_64 and 3.1)07:35
z3brathanks you again Romster. :) I'll now try to rebuild glibc-32, hope it'll work this time07:37
Romsterif gcc isn't gonna rebuild i doubt that will as well.07:38
z3braMaybe that with the newer version of gcc, and the rebuild I did...07:39
z3braLet's find out :)07:39
Romsterno harm in trying07:40
z3brasure ;)07:41
frinnstz3bra: you have support for 32bit binaries in your kernel?07:43
z3braNot at the moment07:43
z3braSomeone told me glibc-32 is "vital" to the toolchain07:44
z3brafurthermore, I plan to install wine, which require 32 libs07:44
Romstervital in the point that gcc will fail without it.07:46
Romsterto recompile nor will 32bit apps work or compile either.07:46
Romsterjaeger, and myself have done the 32bit libs, and i maintian wine yeah it's alot of 32bit ports but most of them are small.07:47
z3brathey're small, yeah. But I'll have to compile them anyway07:47
z3brahehe, compilation failed ^^07:50
z3bra/bin/sh: /home/z3bra/src/work/src/build/sunrpc/cross-rpcgen: cannot execute binary file07:50
z3brasame problem than with gcc07:50
Romsterload average: 20.05, 12.38, 7.0207:56
z3brahow's it not already on fire ?07:57
Romstermy firewall has been up awhile now07:57
Romster18:57:17 up 131 days,  5:36,  3 users,  load average: 0.04, 0.03, 0.0707:57
Romsternah it's got a massive heatsink on it07:57
z3brathat's a minimum :p07:58
Romster131 days is low i had higher but power outages.07:58
Romstereven with a UPS07:58
Romstersometimes don't last long enough07:58
z3braeh, yeah07:58
z3brahow long was the outage ?07:58
Romsterit's on -j20 but gcc uses one cpu than distcc to bootstrap.07:59
Romsterlong enough for the UPS battery to go flat over 15 minutes or so07:59
z3braeeh... that's a long outage08:00
Romsterit happens08:02
Romsteri got a generator now just in case and guess what since i got it i haven't had to use it yet -_-08:03
z3braIA32 emulation was disabled on my kernel08:04
Romsteroh geez i forgot that yeah that'll also kill your compile08:04
Romsterisn't that in the hand book08:04
z3brathank you, gentoo users :p08:04
z3bratheir forum is a goldmine when it comes to compilation problems08:04
z3braactually recompiling kernel08:05
Romsteri gotta head out i'll upload this when i get back after darts08:05
Romsterit'll probably compile after you fix your kernel though08:05
*** jaeger has joined #crux08:24
Romsterso much for that, was just a team noninaiton night thought i'd get to do some practicing.08:49
z3braRomster, that worked :)09:03
z3braMy system is now up to date \o/09:04
Romsterfigures i'm uploading stuff now lol09:04
Romsterh1 72 point font must enable CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION09:05
Romsterin the manual.09:05
z3brayeah ^^09:06
Romsterdamn it make me do extra work for nothing.09:09
z3brasorry :$09:09
Romsteris ok i should of asked if yo enabled that.09:09
tilmanIn order to crimp connectors onto a wire, a special tool is required. Note: Pliers are not crimpers! Neither are hammers, vises, needle nose pliers or flat rocks.09:10
frinnstI did09:10
Romsteri got crimpers yeah you can use other tools but nothing beats the real tool09:10
tilmani onced crimbed a cat5 cable using a hammer09:10
Romsterflat rocks that's new.09:11
tilmanit wasnt pretty09:11
Romsterdesperate times call for desperate measures.09:11
tilmancable has been working for 15 years though09:11
tilmanFUCK I'M OLD09:11
Romsteri once punched down telecom wires with a pocket knife09:11
Romsteron a krome block09:11

z3bracan someone explain me what is httpup meant for ?13:33
z3brais that to upload or download ?13:33
z3braand what, ports or builds ?13:33
dxtrz3bra: I'm guessing 'man httpup' will give you all your answers13:36
dxtrz3bra: I'm guessing 'man httpup' will give you answers to all your questions13:36
z3brayes and no in fact13:36
z3braI'm not sure to totally understand how it works13:36
z3bra"synchronize the local target directory with URL"13:37
z3brahow is it different from ports -u ?13:37
z3braIsn't httpup meant to UPload Pkgfile to a web interface ?13:38
z3bra(seams weird, it's http...)13:39
Romsterports uses drivers /etc/ports/13:40
*** jdolan has joined #crux13:40
Romsterhttpup and rsync are the two common ones.13:40
Romsterhttpup uses curl to download off http protocol13:41
Romsterby using a REPO file13:41
z3braokay! So httpup is just a meant to update ports tree via 'ports'13:41
Romsterany file that does not match the hash gets downloaded.13:42
Romsterpretty much13:42
z3brafine. At first, I tough it was meant to upload a local port tree to a remote url13:42
Romstercore.rsync romster.httpup13:42
z3bragot it13:42
Romsterrsync is a bit more effecent but httpup has a pretty index page.13:43
z3braindex page ?13:43
Romsterthough you can generate it for rsync but you usually don't see it unless it's offered as a http page as well.13:43
Romster ports page13:43
Romstermany of them about.13:44
z3braoh yeah nice13:44
Romsterthough you can get similer looking on ports database on crux.nu13:44
z3braMmmh.. so If I want to share my local ports through a remote server that does not run crux, I have to locally update the REPO file with httpup, and then, scp the whole directory to teh remote serv13:46
Romsterthere is a repo gen command for that.13:46
z3brayeah I saw that13:46
Romsterthat i run on a post-hook script in my git tree.13:46
Romsteri can offer space on that you can git push too if you like. or pick any of the other server out there.13:47
z3braI can probably host it by myself for now13:47
z3braThat's only a few text files so it's not a big deal :)13:48
z3braBut thanks for the offer13:48
Romsteryeah not much space so it's easy to manage.13:48
z3braSo you upload your port tree via git isn't it ?13:49
Romsteri'm only offering because not everyone knows how to set one up.13:49
Romsteror have anywhere todo so.13:49
z3braokay, faitr enough :)13:49
z3braI'll do that !13:49
Romsteryou cna use any tool but i use git crux uses git13:49
z3brayeah git is fine13:49
Romsterand a git post-hook for generating the REPO and index.html page.13:49
Romsterso it's done everytime i do a git push13:50
z3braI've never use post-hook before, but that's probably not hard to deal with :)13:50
Romsternah a few lines like a shell script13:50
Romsterjust be sure to make  it u+x13:51
z3braokay ;)13:51
Romsterportspage . > index.xhtml13:52
Romstersomething like that but you have to deal with the paths13:52
z3braI'll see that on time. First, I need to create the repo on my server13:53
Romstergit init13:54
Romsterthen edit the usual files.13:54
Romsteri'm usisng gitolite on my server13:55
z3brayeah I know that ^^ but that's a bit a mess with my server (I need to mount --bind the repo to /srv/http/, etc...13:55
Romsterdunno how you set yours up but it's not that messy.13:56
z3braall my repos are in /var/git/13:57
z3bra(I only have a single 'git' user)13:57
Romsterthough i got it as /home/git/13:57
z3braBut to make the port tree browsable via http, the repo must reside in /srv/http/webserver_root/13:58
z3braso I just mount --bind it13:58
z3braAh... I can't push to a non-bare repository ?14:00
Romsterwhy not symlink it and set the browser to follow symlinks?14:00
z3bramy browser can't follow symlink14:01
Romsterthat's what i do14:01
z3bra(thttpd is really, really dumb ^^)14:01
Romsterthen set it to do so?14:01
Romsterapache is probably overkill but it does the job.14:01
z3brayeah sure :)14:01
Romsterlighttpd might be a better choice14:02
z3braI ran lighty too14:02
z3braBut I wanted to try something even more simple14:02
z3bra-> thttpd14:02
z3bradoes only file serving and cgi14:02
Romsterand that's what happens no symlink support14:02
z3braconfiguration file is only 7 lines14:02
Romsterserver.follow-symlink="enable" don't work in thttpd?14:03
Romsterthen i guess mount --bind or cp -r everytime or rsync.14:03
Romsterbut that does use twice the space.14:03
Romsteryou'll have to figure something out.14:04
z3brain fact, thttpd can use symlinks14:05
z3braBut for security purpose, it does not go out of the web server root14:05
Romsterwell i set it per a directory.14:06
Romsteri guess mount --bind it is then14:06
z3braanother solution would be to create another user, with its own git repo within the webserv root14:07
z3branot orth it :p14:07
z3braI'll see if I can think of a clever way to do this14:07
z3braif not, mount --bind14:08
Romsterminimal meet configurable issues.14:08
*** jdolan has quit IRC14:11
z3braare you sure that mount --bind double the space used on filesystem ?14:12
Romsterno cp -r and rsync does.14:13
Romsterbind does not.14:13
z3braoh, okay14:13
z3braI was scared ^^'14:13
Romsterif oyu had heaps of space you could jsut copy the stuff over.14:13
Romsterto the http root14:13
z3braI could, but I'd have to ssh to my server, then cp from the git repo to the http root14:14
z3brasuch a pain :/14:14
z3braMmmh, there is another solution14:20
z3braI could clone the repo in my server root14:20
Romsternope do it in post-receive hook14:21
Romsterin git14:21
z3brahow so ?14:22
Romsterthats how i do it14:24
z3brai see14:24
z3brawhere is the post-receive loated ? in the server-side git repo ?14:25
Romsteryes in hooks/14:26
z3braI'll need to compile httpup on my server then14:29
z3braas well as port page14:29
Romsterthere in prt-utils14:30
z3braat least, the repo exists :)14:36
z3bradamn, arch is killing me :/14:50
z3bracd httpup; make -> works14:51
z3braput 'cd httpup; make' in PKGBUILD, then makepkg -> fails14:51
z3braHow can then pretend that PKGBUILDS are simple ?!14:51
frinnststill simpler than rpm :)14:52
z3brayeah probably ^^14:52

deus_exToo many grey hairs in my beard are caused by amd/ati to seriously consider switching from Intel/Nvidia combo.YMMV.19:01
