tilmanfrinnst: indeed :|09:17
frinnstheh, It broke *everything* pretty much09:19
teK_frinnst: please know that it won't get any better with Fujitsu's Serverview (Installation Manager)09:30
teK_it took me four fucking days and countless tries to install 3 Windows Server VMs with this huge pile of stinking crap09:30
frinnstI had to fire up an old xp client to update the firmware09:30
frinnstbut alas, its now installing windows updates09:31
frinnstoh, and you need an "oracle" account to download old jre versions09:31
teK_windows updates through our squid proxy still won't work (even though there's no basic auth required to access these subdomains of
frinnstjre 6.17 should be safe enough09:31
*** sepen has joined #crux09:44
frinnstits aliiiive09:53
frinnstonly took ~2hrs09:53
*** sepen has quit IRC09:57
diversethe more I hear you guys rant about your administration jobs, the less I feel incline to get one.10:00
diverseor maybe getting a linux admin job is better?10:03
teK_on the other hand, frinnst does rant about me too. I am not that bad though.10:03
teK_Linux > *10:03
teK_but my impression is that there is a tendency (at leas in my environment) for shifting back to MS10:04
diverseand that tendency is because of idiotic project managers?10:04
teK_it's because of MS making 'attractive' licensing offers, staff availability (train a monkey to use a mouse) and 'ease of use'.10:05
teK_Don't forget that there are gold/silver/... partners bragging about their MS/Cisco/whatever suppor10:06
teK_I, myself, decided to go with 3x Windows instead of 2x Windows and 1x Linux because of the online-backup (through shadow pages) features of MSSQL coming for almost 0 extra-expense vs.  increased costs for an Oracle solution10:07
teK_the supporting consultant also preferred windows and my admin does not speak a word linux/unix. As I may quit the job for good in six months it was the right decision to make10:07
teK_(i.e. a non-political one)_10:08
teK_and still we payed MS more than 17k EUR for licenses :)10:09
teK_(almost exceeding the hardware costs for 2 Servers and a 2xFC storage system)10:10
diverseand was that spending worth it?10:11
diversestill sounds like stupid corporate managers just want to throw money at the problems without thinking10:14
teK_it sounds like Oracle OR MSSQL is supported by our vendor10:25
teK_and the spending was done last week so I can't tell10:25
teK_my job was to decide on the supplier, price and the product10:25
teK_I knew the price or supplier got and accepted a revenue rate of <3% was ok (he has live off of something, too)10:26
teK_so I set out to get my eomloyer a reasonable price and, imho, accomplished that10:26
teK_am I happy that we are switching from some siemens unix, solaris and linux  after about 20 years of use? Certainly not.10:27
teK_there are missing some gap words, sorry :P10:29
cruxbot[opt.git/3.1]: imagemagick: explicit build with lcms2, fix dependencies10:29
cruxbot[opt.git/3.1]: foomatic-filters: removed, replaced by cups-filters10:29

cruxbot[opt.git/3.1]: strace: 4.8 -> 4.910:42
cruxbot[contrib.git/3.1]: p5-net-dns: 0.77 -> 0.7810:43
cruxbot[contrib.git/3.1]: p5-netaddr-ip: update footprint for perl 5.1810:44
dxtrWouldn't it be neat to add a flag to prt-get that makes it run the (pre|post)-install script(s)?10:48
tilmangrep script /etc/prt-get.conf10:48
dxtrtilman: Sigh.. I suck10:49
dxtrNothing goes my way today :P10:50
NecrosporusHow am I meant to install xfce or something? it's not present in ports11:06
NecrosporusI need a DE or something11:07
Necrosporusicewm would work11:07
dxtrtilman: Where do I send patches if a port needs updating?11:09
diverseteK_: that's disappointing though11:11
diverseNecrosporus: you have to download the rsync/httpup driver from portsdb and add the ports directory where it downloads to in /etc/pkgmk.conf for prt-get11:12
NecrosporusI see there's rsync file for xfce11:15
Necrosporushow to use it to download xfce collection?11:15
tilmandxtr: see the Maintainer line in the-port/Pkgfile11:15
tilmandxtr: if they are in irc, just poke them in here =)11:16
diverseNecrosporus: yep, download from that link and put the file in /etc/ports11:16
diversethen run ports -u11:16
*** hotaronohanako has quit IRC11:22
Necrosporusdiverse, though there are no directories in pkgmk.conf11:23
Necrosporusanyway seems I have to reread the handbook11:23
diverseNecrosporus: whoop, my bad. I meant /etc/prt-get.conf11:25
diverseI'm pretty tired11:25
Necrosporuspkgmk -d -u -r will do the job too I guess11:27
Necrosporusin xfce directory11:27
Necrosporusis there any difference between using setup or someting like (cd /cdrom/packages/core && pkgadd *)?11:51
frinnstyeah, setup does some extra magic. removing obsolete packages adding new ones etc11:53
Necrosporusbut if it's new install, then it doesn't matter, does it?11:56
*** jdolan has joined #crux12:05
teK_diverse: it's business, nothing more and nothing less12:11
tilmanNecrosporus: don't remember. use the source. it's fairly readable12:21

teK_should be this one:;a=blob;f=kernel/linux-3.12.24.config16:16
teK_should be this one:;a=blob;f=kernel/linux-3.12.24.defconfig16:17
renovaatioteK_: what are the diferrences between the kernel's default configs and the crux ones?16:17
