ubuuuim new here. Just had a question07:12
ubuuuis there any guide on dual booting im not famaliar with partition making..07:13
timcowchipwhat other OS?07:16
timcowchipI'm guessing ubuntu07:17
ubuuuand slackware07:25
ubuuubut i failed installing slackware and accudently deleted my win7 partition07:25
timcowchipoh shit07:26
ubuuui know...i was so sad. but im not giving up07:26
ubuuuand i find crux the right linux distro for me07:26
ubuuujust wanted to know exactly what to do before actually doing it07:27
timcowchipso was windows booting everything else?07:27
ubuuuwhat you mean?07:28
ubuuui accidently deleted all the partitions.. so my computer came with an error "No operating system found"07:28
ubuuui did install slackware succesfully07:28
ubuuubut not the way i wanted it to be installed...07:28
timcowchipdid you install lilo with slackware?07:29
ubuuui dont think so since i dont know what lilo is?07:29
timcowchipdo you have anything on a usb or dvd to boot with?07:30
timcowchiplike crux?07:30
ubuuui know how to ISO and BIOS is just when you actually gotta configure the partitions so u can dual boot and stuff07:32
timcowchipgot gparted on a usb or cd?07:32
ubuuui find that very diffecult and scary07:32
timcowchiptheres's a readme on the crux iso07:33
ubuuudoes it contain a dualboot guide?07:33
timcowchipdo you have another device to browse the web?07:33
timcowchiptablet, phone?07:34
ubuuui have 2 laptops07:34
ubuuu1 phone07:34
ubuuu2 tablets07:34
ubuuuand my main pc07:34
ubuuui will try to install on my windows pc07:34
ubuuuand might try on my macbook pro07:34
timcowchipgo to with one device and follow the instructions while installing crux on another07:35
ubuuubut is the installation dualboot or linux as main OS?07:36
ubuuubecause i wanna dualboot alongside with win807:37
timcowchipif you don't install grub to the mbr and leave win8 on it, it might find crux07:38
timcowchipI haven't used windows for a while07:39
ubuuui don't understand the crux installation part..07:40
timcowchipwhich part?07:40
timcowchipare you reading ?07:41
ubuuuyes i am07:41
ubuuuthe "Mount" part07:41
timcowchipafter booting from the usb, mount the prtition you want to install crux on07:42
timcowchipmount /dev/sda3 /mnt for example07:43
ubuuuso i need to make space before booting from the USB07:43
ubuuusince win8 is taking all the space...07:43
ubuuui kinda understand07:43
ubuuubut what about the "swap" what is that used for?07:43
timcowchipwhat about the pc you just put slackware on?07:44
timcowchipis slackware taking all the space?07:44
timcowchipor is there space where win7 was?07:44
timcowchipor did you wipe win7 to install slackware?07:45
ubuuuyes i did that by accident07:45
timcowchipand it won't boot07:46
timcowchipyou could put crux on that machine07:46
ubuuui fixed it07:49
timcowchipyou will have to create (if necessary) and format the partition(s) you want CRUX to be installed on07:49
ubuuui have win8 on there now07:49
timcowchipok have fun with windows07:49
timcowchipgotta go07:57

reephi guys. I have commented out some prt-get.conf lines but when I run ports -u ports contacts all the ports repository even those of the commented out lines so new and updated ports are downloaded even the ones I do not want to (as I have commented out the prt-get.conf lines)12:29
reepI will give to examples of lines I have commented out #prtdir /usr/ports/xfce12:39
reep#prtdir /usr/ports/core12:39
reep when I run $sudo ports -u  these commented out line do not prevent downloading new and updated ports...12:39
Romsterno but they will prevent prt-get from seeing them12:45
Romsterwhy would you comment out core?12:45
Romsteras for xfce you could rm /etc/ports/xfce4.rsync12:45
Romsterif you don't use that12:46
frinnstprtdir in prt-get.conf only controls prt-get12:46
frinnstif you want to remove those repos you need to delete them from /etc/ports12:46
prologicor just rename/move them out12:46
Romster.inactive is common12:50
reepromster in fact I did not comment core that was just an example to make my post clearer13:03
*** pal_bth has quit IRC13:04
reepin fact I commented out some  individual collectiions from crux users but I avoided to mention which ones so I referred to core as an example13:05
reepthanks you all. solved.13:10
Romsterthere is also mpup port that can pull exact ports than an entire collection too.13:17

rmullAny one of you crux dudes want to take care of it if convenient?14:19
joacimi think it is automatic14:46
joacimwhen your repo disappears, it is also automatically deregistered14:46
rmullOh, okay14:47
*** sdfgsdfg has quit IRC14:49
jaegerrmull: I can disable it if you like, it will be automatically removed from the list14:52
rmullYes, please disable it. I've lost control of the machine that was hosting it.14:57
rmullIt's complicated.14:58
jaegerdoh, sorry14:59
jaegerok, done, it'll be removed next time the cacher runs14:59
rmullThanks very much15:00

*** ubuuu has joined #crux16:25
ubuuuHi guys16:25
ubuuui need help with "setup-chroot"16:26
ubuuui typed the command and now im as "bash-4.3#"16:26
ubuuuwhat to do?16:26
jawbonow you're are inside your installed system. now you configure services, hostname, locales, any networking needs, compile kernel16:27
jawboit's in the handbook!16:28
*** Kruppt has joined #crux16:30
jawboi think just https://crux.nu16:31

*** tsaop has joined #crux17:22
tsaopI sort of completed the first set of KF5 ports (frameworks + plasma + some of the ported applications)17:23
tsaophow do I proceed from there? Should I set up a GitHub account or something?17:23
timcowchipthe "old way" is to ask to publish your ports17:28
ubuuui dropped it17:31
ubuuufuck it17:31
timcowchipfuck you :)17:31
ubuuui go on the #crux irc channel nobody answers17:35
ubuuuhow am i supposed to know what to do when no support17:36
tsaoptimcowchip: how would I push updates to these ports? I don't have any own webspace available17:37
timcowchipdo you have a github account?17:37
rmullubuuu: You asked "what do I do after I chroot" and jawbo told you to look in the handbook, which describes everything in great detail.
ubuuu>in great detail.17:38
rmullDo you have a question other than "what do I do next?" What you do next is pretty clear in the handbook. Edit /etc/fstab.17:38
jawboif you're not willing to do some work yourself, you're not going to enjoy crux17:39
ubuuui spend 2 hours bro on it17:39
ubuuuand i made it to the "lilo" part17:39
ubuuuand i just gave up17:39
ubuuubecause it didnt work17:39
rmullSo you configured a kernel?17:41
rmullwhat didn't work about lilo?17:42
ubuuuthe GUI but there wasnt really anything in there to change17:43
ubuuui didnt know what to type in the "boot" and "root" in the lilo.conf17:43
rmullboot=/dev/sda where sda is the drive name of your boot disk17:44
ubuuu i only made a primary and a swap17:45
rmullroot I don't use. Instead I use append="root=/dev/sda2" where sda2 is the name of your boot partition17:45
rmullIMHO the example lilo.conf should change17:45
ubuuuim just gonna install slackware17:46
rmullOkay, see ya17:46
ubuuusee ya? im always here17:46
timcowchiphe told me he was going back to win817:47
ubuuuwhen did i ever tell you that?17:47
timcowchiplast night17:48
ubuuumight be true17:48
ubuuucant remember17:48
timcowchip"ubuuui have win8 on there now"17:49
timcowchipif I can install crux, so can you......17:50
ubuuui can...17:50
ubuuui might try again tommorow17:50
ubuuuif someone would like to guide me through the problems i have17:50
tsaopinstall LFS instead17:50
tsaoptimcowchip: I don't have a github account, but can make one if needed17:51
ubuuutsaop: why would i do that???17:51
tsaopfor the learning experience17:52
ubuuui cant even install crux17:52
ubuuuand u want me to give lfs a try17:52
timcowchiptry grub this time
tsaopand in winter, to warm up your room if your heating is broken17:52
ubuuutimcowchip: okey <3317:52
rmullubuuu: There is a right way and a wrong way to ask for help17:52
ubuuuteach me!17:52
rmullYou're not going to find very much help from a group of advanced users if you act entitled to their time17:52
tsaopdo you have the will to learn?17:53
ubuuuyes ofc that is why i am here17:53
ubuuui just think i will install slackware for now17:55
timcowchipslackware sucks17:55
tsaopslackware is great too for learning17:55
tsaopalso installing xorg starting from xorg-server without dependency management17:56
tsaopbased ldd17:56
ubuuuslackware doesnt suck17:56
ubuuucrux install and Documentation sucks17:57
jaegerubuuu: many different timezones and work schedules in IRC, have patience17:57
tsaopmeh, I find the docs are straight to the point17:57
tsaopyou might want to read other documentation on the same subject from another distro17:58
tsaopeg. Gentoo or the Archwiki17:58
tsaopshould give you a more comprehensive understanding of a subject17:58
ubuuu>tfw crux doesnt give you keyboard selection from the beginning17:59
jaegerIf there's a specific part of the documentation that you feel is lacking, explain why - if it's general linux knowledge, on the other hand, it most likely won't be in the crux handbook17:59
tsaopubuuu: loadkeys keymap_code17:59
ubuuutsaop: how am i supposed to know that?18:00
tsaopthrough reading and sheer luck18:00
retardmostly reading18:00
retardubuuu if you want to click through menus for everything crux might not be the distro for you18:00
tsaoplet's say you're reading an article and you end up learning something useful not strictly related to it18:00
rmullubuuu: I searched the handbook for "keymap" and it had everything you need to know18:01
tsaoprmull: it is indeed in a table describing configuration variables in /etc/rc.conf, now that I am looking at it18:02
tsaopsee section 6.1.318:02
rmullloadkeys is standard linux stuff that isn't specific to crux, so the assumption is that you can at least google for "linux console keyboard layout" and click the first result18:03

deep42thoughtHi, what's the official way to rebuild all ports, which are installed as dependencies of a certain port?18:37
tsaopdeep42thought: try with prt-get depends <port_name>18:39
tsaopthough I'm afraid that list would be a bit too comprehensive18:39
rmullprt-get -fr update $(prt-get depends <port_name>) to be specific18:50
deep42thoughtyes, thanks18:50
*** leetspete1 has quit IRC18:51
deep42thoughtI did it a little different (although that's not exactly what I asked for): just rebuild the port which is broken and look for the conflict and rebuild that port.18:52
deep42thoughtto be specific, it's cryptsetup. However, it looks like it would like a static device-mapper link, which it can't get (
deep42thoughtbtw: it's prt-get -fr update $(prt-get quickdep <port_name>)19:01
rmulloops, thanks for the correction19:07
rmullSo is your cryptsetup still broken?19:08
deep42thoughtit looks like a libdevmapper-update broke it19:08
deep42thoughtbut to be sure, I try to rebuild all dependencies ...19:09
rmullI have the same failure, fwiw.19:09
rmullI had all deps installed from before19:09
dlcusaromster, ever seen liblrdf fail in automake with " error: required file './' not found"?19:10

*** leetspete1 has joined #crux19:14
deep42thoughtrmull: cryptsetup is still broken19:14
rmullYes, confirmed19:15
*** timcowchip has quit IRC19:16
deep42thoughtmight it be that: "Fix shared library generation to stop exporting internal functions." (though I didn't find the corresponding code yet)19:27
rmullThis stuff's a little beyond my skill set19:31
rmullfor example, objdump -T on the library file shows dm_task_set_uuid is in the dynamic symbol table19:32
rmullbut I don't know the significance of that19:32
