rmullI prefer to set PKGMK_IGNORE_NEW="yes" in /etc/pkgmk.conf02:44
rmullAnd reinstall02:44
jaegeryou can also just pkgadd it. It built at that point, just has extra stuff it wasn't expecting02:44
jaegerin this case, looks like SDL support02:44
rmullOr prt-get -if02:45
][_R_][Ah, that works thanks02:49
][_R_][It'd have been nice if prt-get defaulted to asking me if that was alright...02:50
][_R_][Also it restarted the compile each time I reran it02:50
rmullpkgadd can be run on the file that the first compile produced02:54
rmullTo avoid a recompile02:55

crash_is there a program to easy add httup and rsync repos the list under ports i mean :)09:27
*** Naeil has quit IRC09:31
frinnst2wget? or not sure I follow09:41
*** onodera has joined #crux09:41
*** Naeil has joined #crux09:43
crash_well i'm trying to understand how to add httup repos mostly, do i need to put them in prt-get as well or just in /usr/ports09:44
frinnst2if you want to use prt-get you need to specify what directories it should look in for ports09:45
crash_ok so it can find them09:46
crash_mpup is something for 3rd-party repos?09:47
frinnst2yeah it allows you to subscribe to a specific port from a repository. all subscribed ports appear in a "meta" repository locally for you09:48
crash_that could be handy maybe09:49
frinnst2i have this line in my mpup.lst file: httpup sync samba09:49
frinnst2for example09:49
crash_so if you do prt-get depinst samba it will grab samba from there?09:51
frinnst2yeah because i specified /usr/ports/meta first in my prt-get.conf09:51
frinnst2the repository order in prt-get.conf specifies priorities for duplicate ports09:52
crash_i see09:52

piecesofquiethello guys, switched back to CRUX after Void started giving me the shits. Do need some help with setting up pulse though, if anyone's available please10:40
Romsterpulse isn't required to use crux, infact the majority of us don't use pulse.10:50
Romsteri'm not sure what is required to use pulse in crux other than prt-get depinst pulseaudio10:50

crash_have a problem on a laptop installing crux with uefi, i have a partion 512MB efi-system and fat16 formatted and mounted to boot/efi but when i run grub-install i get Could not prepare Boot variable: no such file22:31
jaegerwhat command line did you use for grub-install?22:33
jaegerAnd are your efi vars working? either with the efivars module or efivarfs22:34
crash_i used grub-install /boot/efi and nothing else as the wiki stated :)22:36
jaegerNever seen that particular error, myself. Is secure boot disabled?22:37
crash_have never seen this error before either22:38
crash_the same command works fine on my other crux laptop22:38
crash_i used a updated-crux3.2 iso and on the other laptop i used the release22:40
crash_not sure if that has something todo with it22:41
jaegerhrmm, it's possible. I'll have to do some testing22:42
crash_yeah maybe it's just a bug with efivar or something22:42
*** vsteve has joined #crux23:32
vsteveah there you are, I've made progress with the r9 nano23:33
abenzdo tell23:33
vsteveI've written a gigantic awful script that "unDebians" the amdgpu-pro package23:33
vsteveit's like 330+ lines23:33
abenzoh dear23:33
abenzthat sounds an awful lot of work23:34
vstevebut as far as I can tell it does it's job, my hard part now is that I need to get xorg to load the right driver23:34
vsteveand I don't know if the right driver is amdgpu or amdgpu-pro  or something else23:34
abenzundebian? so gpu-pro is targeted at ubuntu family only?23:34
abenzI thought it was meant for any linux dist23:34
vstevefor now, yes23:34
vstevein the future they slate it for all linux's23:34
vstevei'm just impatient23:35
vstevesome amd dev told me I could "pick the ubuntu driver apart" so...I did23:35
vsteveand it's a big hideous mess23:35
abenzso this is to get extra functionality (opencl?), the basic stuff is all in the upstreamed driver right23:35
abenzamdgpu that is (-pro)23:35
abenzI see23:36
vstevealso the theory is that amdgpu-pro should perform a bit better in opengl23:36
vstevesince amdgpu's opengl performance is sad at best23:36
abenzwell that surely removed a lot of the enchantment with the nano23:36
vsteveit will improve with time, I'm sure23:36
vstevethere's just a mountain to climb, and once I'm done climbing it I'll carefully document every step23:36
abenzthat'd be great :)23:37
vsteveso far my script does a huge assload of the work for you, including installation23:37
vstevethough I must caution you I didn't write a package or..uninstaller of any kind, it just merges into your root file system23:37
abenzis it available for review?23:37
vsteveit is, I' sorry for what you're about to see23:38
abenzACTION puts on goggles 23:38
vsteveyou might see if that link works23:38
abenzneed to login23:38
vsteveI can email it to you if you're interested23:38
abenzpls do23:39
vstevegod speed23:40
abenzits just copying/moving stuff around23:41
abenzyou scared me23:41
*** onodera has quit IRC23:42
*** onodera has joined #crux23:42
vsteveit is, on a large scale23:42
vstevethey did some WEIRD stuff inside that package, made it a real pain to work with23:42
vstevebut that script boils it all down, conveniently to /etc /lib and /usr23:42
cruxbot[opt.git/3.2]: efibootmgr: 13 -> 1423:42
vstevesomething that should work in any distro...I think23:42
abenzI was thinking dissecting firmware, padding md5s and the like heh23:43
vsteveoh no, it's just hideous code23:43
abenzhow's performance now?23:43
vsteveI'll try and make it more efficient, I was just 100% focused on making it work23:43
abenzworth it in the end I hope?23:43
vstevewell..I imagine it will be, but that's yet to be seen23:43
vsteveI still need to fix xorg23:44
vsteveand figure out what driver to point it to and god knows what else23:44
vstevebut that script is my first big stab in the right direction23:44
abenzi see23:44
vsteveand hopefully it can be used to make the whole amdgpu-pro available to all distros23:45
vsteveAMD seems like a company of big ideas and few they start to drag on some projects23:45
vstevelike Open64 for instance, which was going strong for a few years and then they just stopped updating it23:46
vsteveand AMD and ATI have always been of the mindset that optimizations should be made over-time in the drivers23:46
vsteveand historically that's worked really well, I had a 12-pipeline ati x800 that outperformed an nvidia 16-pipeline 6800gt with the latest ati drivers23:47
abenzI noticed that too. OpenGL is being phased out to vulkan.. which is basically AMD mantle23:47
vsteveonce they figure out how to get something working well - it tends to work pretty damn well23:48
vsteveyeah, so it's a matter of time, but it'll have great results23:48
vsteveI'm just hoping to speed things along for early adopters23:48
abenzhowever I think they play the good guy (ie release opensource stuff like freesync and the like) because people wouldn't bother otherwise23:48
vsteveoh they absolutely do that because they have to23:49
vsteveyou can't be the "lesser than" choice and still be a company as evil and intel or nvidia23:49
abenzin their glory days, with the dual-CPU enthusiast platforms, they charged I don't remember how much but huge amounts of cash23:49
vstevebut I imagine the first dual cpu wafers had terrible bin rates23:50
abenzI meant dual-CPU, not dual-Core23:50
abenzthey had an enthusiast "FX" line23:50
vsteveoh yeah, this tech was modifed and put to use in Cray XT5s23:51
abenztheir "coherent fabric" ?23:52
abenzlol those names23:52
vstevesomething like that23:52
vstevethey managed to have 8 cpus to a node in the XT523:52
abenzI see23:53
vstevebut anyway, I'm going to keep trying to figure out this xorg issue23:53
vsteveyou have my email address now, so if you come up with any bright ideas, please send them my way if you feel so inclined23:54
abenzI wonder if the performance you're seeing is comparable to radeon (on a comparable gpu)23:54
vstevemaybe but..what comprable gpu is there?23:54
abenzor if amdgpu is very different that performance is greatly affected without the blobs23:54
vstevethe fiji is so weird23:54
vsteveit's their only card with 4x 512-bit memory busses23:55
abenzsay a highend gpu that works with radeon driver not amdgpu23:55
abenzI mean it on driver level not hardware23:55
abenzthe other day I tried some 3d games23:55
vsteveI'm not as familiar with their products as I should be23:55
abenzon my very cheap radeon, and it wasn't bad..23:56
vstevecheap and old or just cheap?23:56
abenzso I wonder when you say "sad 3d performance", how much are we talking ?23:56
vsteveso in glxgears I saw 5000 fps23:56
vstevemy x800 pro from 2004 can do that23:56
abenz01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Caicos [Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450 / R5 230 OEM]23:56
abenzglxgears is hardly any measurement23:57
vstevewell...fair point23:57
abenzisn't that ancient anyway23:57
vstevebut it should be blasting away at far higher than 5k23:57
vstevemy mobile nvidia 335m can hit around 7300 fps23:58
vsteveat minimum the fiji has a higher operating frequency and a big fat heap of memory busses23:58
vstevethat should count for something, i'd think23:59
vsteveI should have opened Quake 3 to get a better sense23:59
abenzbut still, I think a proper way of measurement should be used23:59
vsteveI agree23:59
abenzglxgears is just ... too raw23:59
vsteveand I'll do more complete testing when I get there23:59
