tired890gadgets like that are needed with the phones (phablets?) getting bigger00:00
tired890IMHO the "best size" is one that can be operated with one hand00:00
tired890case in point:
tired890had that phone until it died.. was using it till 2014 IIRC. Haven't had a phone since that felt so "right" in hand.. size wise00:02
tired890at least apple is going back to sane sizes, has a 4inch phone set for a march release: iphone 5se:
joacimyou say that as if it was already announced00:12
cruxbot[opt.git/3.2]: [notify] flash-player-plugin: updated to
cruxbot[opt.git/3.2]: qt4: added missing dep on xorg-libsm00:13
cruxbot[opt.git/3.2]: jdk: updated to 1.8.0_7400:13
joacimfrinnst: 3 days is considered good these days?00:14
joacimi could use my old symbian s60 phone for 2 weeks before i had to charge it00:15
joacimthis nexus 5 i have to charge ever 2 or 3 days00:15

groovy2shoesfrom the OpenBSD Porter's Handbook:  "if a port is using DocBook, checking mandoc compatibility will likely turn out to be a waste of time."03:50
groovy2shoesoh, DocBook03:50
groovy2shoesa pain in everyone's arse03:50
groovy2shoes"For the time being, do not report problems related to DocBook. We know source code generated by DocBook is extremely crappy even when DocBook works as intended, and on top of that, DocBook tends to be more buggy than average software."03:51

aixHi there22:28
aixI'm trying to get wifi working, but I'm only getting sit and lo devices22:28
aixI've compiled a kernel with all default options since the last *custom* one I made didn't work too well22:29
groovy2shoesaix, you might need linux-firmware22:30
groovy2shoesdo a `dmesg |grep -i firmware` to see if it's trying to load something22:32
aixi got nothing22:36
*** aix has quit IRC22:40
tired890you will need to compile a kernel with support for your particular card22:40
tired890just copy over your current .config22:41
tired890make menuconfig and add support for your card22:41

frinnsthm, i wonder if there are any good kernel building guides out there23:08
frinnstmigth be useful to have a link handy whenever people ask about it23:08
frinnstall guides / examples i've found are pretty crappy23:08
groovy2shoesI said "to hell with it" and copied Slackware's .config lol23:08
frinnst might be useful23:13
john_cephalopodaHmm, "Kernel Configuration Recipes" seems to be the only part that migth interest me.23:15
john_cephalopodafrinnst: The problem is, that the kernel EVOLVES extremely fast.23:16
frinnstyep, lots of new stuff with each release. but the most fundamental stuff is usually pretty stable for years on end23:16
john_cephalopodaThe upgrade from 4.3 to 4.4 took me a long time because I had to re-find all the options. They changed places, they disappeared, new options appeared.23:16
frinnstI just usually copy the .config file to the new kernel source and run "make oldconfig"23:17
tired890why didnt u just copy the config23:17
john_cephalopodaAlso in every release, a few modules that were once split out can be built into the kernel.23:17
john_cephalopodaMmh, it's better to know what options were selected than to trust into some oldconfig that might mess all up and make more trouble than it helps.23:18
frinnsti have never had issues with oldconfig during the past 10 years i think23:19
tired890the locations might be different but the actual options inside the file are the same23:19
john_cephalopodaI don't know how it handles modules, that can be compiled into the kernel, for example.23:19
john_cephalopodaI want as little external modules as possible.23:19
frinnstso disable module support and make everyting builtin23:19
cruxbot[contrib.git/3.2]: libreoffice: 5.0.4 -> 5.1.023:19
john_cephalopodaSo when I update, I have to look through all the modules and select the ones that I want built into the kernel anyway.23:19
frinnstthats always doable - but not everything can be a module23:20
john_cephalopodafrinnst: Not everything works as builtin23:20
frinnsteh, yeah they do23:20
frinnstunless you need firmware - then you need to bundle the firmware in the kernel image23:20
john_cephalopodaAt least there was no option to do that in earlier kernels.23:20
john_cephalopodaEither modules or compiled in.23:20
john_cephalopoda*Either modules or nothing.23:20
frinnstif you dont have that option its because you have selected a dependency as a module23:20
frinnstif you build dri as a module you cant build something dependent such as intel / amd gpus as builtin23:21
john_cephalopodaWell, I am configuring all my kernels the same and I am choosing builtin everywhere where it is possible.23:21
john_cephalopodaSo it can't be that.23:22
tired890whats the advantage of having everything built in anyways?23:22
frinnstthen you probably missed something or came across something in the wrong order23:22
frinnstjust sed your .config :-)23:22
john_cephalopodatired890: I suspect that it might be faster. Also might reduce problems in loading modules.23:22
john_cephalopodaAnyway, it's late and I got to get up early.23:22
tired890nighty night23:23
