prologickori: we’ve been over this over and over again :)02:10
prologicsome of us (me) disagree on what a “rolling release” really means02:10
prologicif you want your install to be rolling by all means update your ports whenever/however you wish :)02:11
prologictypically however the core crux dev team releases an updated iso with updated binaries of core/opt/xorg about once per year02:11
koriit's because I saw how the releases work and the version numbers are mostly marks02:11
prologicwe (the contrib and core maintainers) update ports regularly when we see upstream releases (stable releases usually)02:11
prologicbut it’s generally up to “you” to update your own systems02:11
prologicin general however IHMO02:12
prologiccrux is the most up-to-date distro around02:12
prologicbut it is up to you the end user to ensure that :)02:12
prologicI have systems that are years old and cannot be easily updated anymore02:12
koriI'm not sure how updating works, as I installed crux a couple days ago02:12
prologicit’s simple02:13
prologicports -u02:13
prologicprt-get sysup02:13
prologicthat’s it in most cases02:13
prologicanything else is manual or by you (by hand) etc02:13
koriI actually decided against using prt-get02:13
korifor now, at least02:13
jaegerprt-get is well worth using02:14
koriI don't mind manual dependency solving too much but it seems like prt-get is the only easy way for a global system update02:15
*** mikel has quit IRC02:16
korialso, I thought crux used a custom init02:16
*** chris2 has joined #crux02:17
diversejaeger: is *always* well worth using ;)02:17
koriI wrote a simple wrapper script to make port management easier02:18
koriI used something similar on FreeBSD, so I just adapted it for crux02:18

cristtersHi, anyone use PyQt4?07:12
cristtersI try to install it via pip, but it seems impossible!07:13
Romsterhow so?07:13
Romsterpastebin if over 3 lines07:13
Romsterqt4 probable has no python support.07:17
Romsteror maybe no egg info file07:18
cristtersOk,I'll use someone's PyQt407:18
Romsterpackage it in a Pkgfile07:18
Romsterrsync -aqz pyqt407:19
Romstergrab that modify top remove kde stuff07:19
cristtersRomster: Thanks07:20
Romsteractually should just work as is07:21
Romsterbut versio=4.11.207:21
Romsterbut version=4.11.207:21
*** mhe has joined #crux07:37
*** phant0mas has quit IRC07:42
Romstermhe there is compat packages of gstreamer also you need to be in the audio group.07:43
Romsteri just use amixer07:43
Romsterm to unmute and number keys to jump volume or up and down arrow.07:44
mhemy sound worked after setting it umuted and I control volume through alsamixer, I use i3 altough on another machine I am using xfce4 but did not need sound on that machine yet (porn huh ;))07:45
mhethere seem to be more security fixes for glibc 2.19, I am using 4043, 0475, 5119, 6040 and hardening from
mheI follow macha's security thread at lq slackware07:57
Romsterstill need webkit-gtk2 i68607:58
*** hhhhhhhh has joined #crux07:58
Romsterah i see07:58
Romsteri got my chroot 3.1 i686 updated07:58
mhewell, I managed to compile firefox on my crux 2.8 and found out that the package I had built on my crux 3.1 i686 worked on my crux 2.8 as well so did not try any further with webkit :)07:59
mhebut if there is a fix, I am interested08:00
Romsteroh that was the reason to disable system nss/nspr08:00
mhein the end that did not help, it probably had to do with not using the overlay, because after applying that it worked (with nss slightly altered 3.17.2 from core instead of i686 because it was not yet updated at the time on the overlay08:02
mhemesa3d >9.2.5 also did not build before I used the overlay08:02
mhestill does not on glibc-2.20 but no more need for that with extra security patches on glibc-2.1908:03
Romstermesa needs llvm08:04
Romsterunless you disable gallium08:04
mheyes, I did install llvm and tried with disabling gallium, always the same build error08:08

frinnstThe Service Processor (SP) contains a memory resource leak affecting the IPMI software, eventually causing the SP to become unresponsive and possibly triggering a watchdog reset of Data ONTAP�. In order to trigger this reset, the SP must be running for approximately five hundred (500) days or longer.08:56

rmullfrinnst: The response from FTDI is absurd15:05
rmullI can't imagine that it would actually be good for their company15:06
frinnstThis is definitely not targeting end users - if you're unsure if15:07
frinnstICs are genuine then please don't use the drivers.15:07
frinnstand who the fuck would know that? its not like chinese electronics manufacturers ship with ftdi certificates or whatever15:08
rmullWow, here's another good lkml post15:08
joacimoh. another one about systemd.15:10
joacimif people spent their time maintaining systemd-free systems instead of writing on forums =)15:11
frinnstim so sick of the systemd debate15:12

*** Tahuri has joined #crux15:18
thetornainbowi am15:22
rmullI am considering using it. Do you like it?15:23
thetornainbowalthough just for personal budgeting, nothing big15:23
thetornainbowi love it. if you are familiar with double-entry accounting it's much better than a checkbook or spreadsheet for budgeting15:23
thetornainbowand you can add as many accounts as you'd like, generate reports and stores everything in plain text, so it's super easy to script things around it15:24
thetornainbowi've been thinking i need to publish my port of it for Crux15:25
rmullThere's one in jue's repo15:25
thetornainbowah, i didn'15:25
thetornainbowt know that15:25

jaegerAnyone know what causes this type of error?
nrxtxjaeger: was there any more output?22:31
jaegernot sure if any of it is useful but I'll paste the whole log, sec22:32
nrxtxdid you mess up your theme directory?22:34
jaegernot as far as I can tell but maybe I'm missing something. gnome theme stuff is a pain22:36
nrxtxthe more interesting part is path != null assertion22:37
nrxtxwhich finally results in the gtk_icon_info_load assertion failing22:38
teK_btw does anybody know if/how to resume the extraction of a .rar archive with unrar/rar/bsdtar?22:40

jaegermay have to, I guess. :/23:02
jaegerthanks for trying23:02
nrxtxuhm you did follow forks while tracing?23:04
jaegerI'll have to look into it more later, need to go for now. Thanks23:05
