rmulljaeger: Btw, the gentoo handbook still recommends the /usr/src/linux symlink13:06
rmullMaybe it's different for them in that their glibc is compiled against their packaged kernel sources13:08
rmullWhich (if I'm understanding correctly) is the remaining purpose of /usr/src/linux13:09
rmullBut that would imply that every time they release a new gentoo-sources they also release a new glibc13:12
rmullwhich I don't recall noticing13:12
rmullI am now moving mine into my home dir and cleaning out /usr/src. Will report if anything goes screwy.13:15

john_cephalopodaIs there some way to find out the size of a package?15:10
Wildefyrjohn_cephalopoda : try du -h $(cat .footprint)15:12
Wildefyrbasic but you can esily expand15:12
john_cephalopodaI plan to use crux for streaming (using gstreamer) and knowing the disk space requirements would be helpful.15:13
Wildefyrbut we just got rid of gstreamer from firefox!15:14
Wildefyri'd take a look at obs tbh15:14
Wildefyropensource and works on linux now15:15
john_cephalopodaAh, I'm not streaming video, only audio.15:15
john_cephalopodaStudio-Transmitter-Link for the student radio.15:15
Wildefyrah okay15:30
john_cephalopodaHmm, crux3.2 doesn't seem to have a working nano in the installer.15:38
john_cephalopodaWill an updated version ever be uploaded?15:38
john_cephalopodaIt's a bit annoying when I have to mess around with vim, which never really works.15:39
john_cephalopodaIn virtualbox, the vim output is completely unreadable and corrupted.15:39
jaegerwhat do you mean by corrupted?15:41
john_cephalopodaParts of the curses UI are drawn over each other15:46
john_cephalopodaIt's a bit like xterm -t :P15:47
john_cephalopodaBut with ncurses15:47
jaegerhrmm... how would I duplicate that? not seeing it in virtualbox15:49
john_cephalopodaTry to write something and press :q a few times. Or :q! and then start vim again.15:52
john_cephalopodaAlso try to behave like somebody who has no clue how vim works, so press escape a few times, write ":wqnfdsafdfdsfd" and stuff.15:52
john_cephalopodaIdk how I did that, I have no clue how vim works :P15:53
john_cephalopodaAaaa, computers are so annoying15:59
john_cephalopodaWhy does one need an OS with an entire network stack to load the bootloader?16:00
jaegerhrmm, I can't make it break here16:04
jaegervirtualbox 5.0.10 on a windows host if that matters16:04
john_cephalopoda5.0.12 on linux16:05
*** onodera has quit IRC16:06
*** onodera has joined #crux16:06
john_cephalopodaMaybe I pressed some key combination that disturbed the text flow16:06
john_cephalopodaHuh, it seems that GPT only works properly together with UEFI16:09
groovy2shoesnot surprising16:12
groovy2shoesjaeger, unfortunately I haven't been able to reproduce that issue with docbook-xml... it happened the first time I installed it, but any time I install it now, it's fine16:13
groovy2shoesjaeger, I did notice that on Slackware, those entries added to /etc/xml/docbook-xml are also added to /etc/xml/catalog, so I wonder if there's different software that relies on one or the other16:14
jaegerThey should probably be merged into catalog... with that said, I've not experienced any failures to write either file16:14
groovy2shoesit didn't seem like a failure to write the file to me, it seemed like xmlcatalog was overwriting the previous entries on every add for some reason... maybe it's a bug with xmlcatalog, but like I said, I can't reproduce it16:15
groovy2shoeslike, the docbook-xml catalog was there, but it contained only the results of the last `xmlcatalog --add`, and not the results of all of them16:16
groovy2shoesI'd also argue that the writes to the catalog ought to be a post-install script, like in docbook-xsl16:19
jaegerthey weren't a post-install in docbook-xml because that's what package owns and creates catalog16:20
jaegerthen docbook-xsl was just supposed to add to it16:21
groovy2shoeswhat about other packages that need to update the catalog?16:21
jaegerthey should use post-installs16:21
jaegerAlso, I don't know/remember why /etc/xml/docbook-xml got created instead of catalog16:22
groovy2shoeswell, for what it's worth, Slackware has both, with more-or-less identical contents16:22
groovy2shoessorry if you're tired of hearing about docbook-xml lol16:29
groovy2shoesit's just such a pain in the ass16:29

onoderaI'm trying to compile audacity: and it fails with a ./configure: 15: ./configure: Bad substitution16:55
onoderathis file, line 15, does anyone know what goes wrong16:55
groovy2shoesonodera, I think that's a bashism17:01
groovy2shoestry changing #!/bin/sh at the top to #!/bin/bash17:01
*** BitPuffin has joined #crux17:02
jaegeror try CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash ./configure17:02
*** james has joined #crux17:03
groovy2shoesonodera, if you don't have bash installed and don't want it, it looks like mksh from contrib supports that form of variable substitution as well17:05
john_cephalopodaonodera: Had the same error. I just unlinked /bin/sh and replaced it with a symlink to /bin/bash17:09
john_cephalopodaThough that's kinda the brutefoorce way to do it17:10

Wildefyrtbh onodera we could do with getting audacity in the 6c37 repos17:17

onoderajaeger: thanks17:18
onoderaI tried SHELL= and bash ./configure before, both didn't work17:18
groovy2shoesI love this channel17:19
groovy2shoesI'm always learning new shit17:19
Wildefyryeah man the ops in this channel are gods amongst mortals17:21
groovy2shoesand conversation generally stays on-topic, too, which you can't say about a lot of channels anymore :/17:22
*** BitPuffin has quit IRC17:23
onoderaI don't really like channels like #arch-linux for example17:29
onoderaso many people, and really hard to follow a convo17:29
groovy2shoes##slackware is usually just a lot of off-topic talk about politics or armchair economics or just random topics, really, and it bothers me quite a bit17:30
Wildefyrit's hard to find relevant channels17:30
WildefyrI quite like #mpv right now17:30
groovy2shoes#lua used to be really good, and now it's like there's an in-group that just constantly banters17:30
Wildefyrone of the devs is always around17:30

skrzypI thought deps are just in header19:15
john_cephalopodaskrzyp: No, you got me wrong - I am creating a package myself, so I have to find out the deps I need for that. That's why they aren't in the header.19:16

john_cephalopodapedja: What exactly does it do?20:04
pedjaswitches between qt versions20:05
pedjaqt4 is the default.when you want to build against qt5, just add 'export QT_SELECT=qt5' and 'export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/share/qt5', if the port uses cmake build system20:07
