piecesofquietreinstalled last night after being away for a few months, any tips on improving font rendering?06:33
frinnstpiecesofquiet: there are lots of configuration tips out there. unfortunately what looks good on one computer looks terrible on another07:08
frinnstbut play whit the shipped configurations: /etc/fonts/conf.avail/*.conf - symlink or copy to /etc/fonts/conf.d/ to enable07:11

pedjaSiFuh, I watched a couple of episodes of S1, I'll pick it up again at some point11:15
pedjait is an excellent show, but I need the subtitles for one of the characters :)11:16
pedjahe has a rather thick, I think Scottish, accent11:17
pedjapiecesofquiet, the best advice I can give you is to use a quality font :)11:20
pedjaI use SourcePro/Sans, but there are others11:21
pedjaI also patch freetype to enable subpixel rendering, but that's more of a habit11:23
frinnstdo you still really need that?11:40
pedjaprobably not, but I am yet to try if I can see the difference without it.11:48
pedjait's low on my TODO list :)11:48
frinnst2.7 enabled it by default iirc11:54
pedjabut, iirc, fonts in Xfce on my netbook running Tumbleweed do look a bit fuzzier11:54
frinnstfonts are a pita11:55
pedjait enabled hinting, subpixel rendering is still covered with MS patents11:56
pedjauntil 2019/2020, something like that11:56
pedjasome say there is a prior art, so that patents are invalid, but who has pockets deep enough to take MS to court :)11:58
frinnsti think its not trivial to prove that either11:58
frinnstdo you have a freetype port handy? Would be cool to test side by side11:59
frinnstor actually, forget it11:59
frinnstlast time i messed with fonts i only made stuff worse and couldnt get it back to how I like it :D11:59
pedjaI set them once a while back and don't sucking touch them anymore :)12:00
joacimright now it looks fine on my current crux setups12:01
joacimand i dare not touch anything in fear of ruining it12:01
joacimfonts are black magic as far as i'm conserned12:01
joacim"If I had to live with children, and I couldn't hit them"12:06
pedjaI streamlined my fonts.conf, now it contains only 'replace Helvetica with Source Pro', that kind of stuff12:06
joacimgood thing level1techs isn't in charge of raising children =)12:06
pedjaah, you are watching that, too?12:07
joacimdont like the "WOW BUILDING ANOTHER LGA1151 BUILD NOW!" guys12:08
pedjaI'll watch Wendell's IOMMU/virtualisation on TR video later tonight12:08
pedjait's almost 3 hours :)12:08
joacimtried doign that on my ryzen system12:09
joacimbut the performance was horrible12:09
pedjagpu passthrough?12:09
joacimstuff like gta5 was not as playable as it was without passthrough12:09
joacimi assume i did something wrong somewhere12:09
pedjaits fiddly12:10
joacimi just booted my old windows 7 install12:10
pedjaif it is on the separate ssd, you can boot that directly, iirc12:11
joacimi dont want to dualboot12:11
joacimi might just go back to the old setup of using two computers12:11
joacimones just a games console with steam12:11
pedjano, use physical disk instead of virtual12:12
joacimoh right12:12
joacimyeah thats what i did12:12
pedjathere is a video about it on Level1Linux, but I guess you watched it :)12:12
joacimim not able to take much information from videos tbh12:13
joacimbeen reading articles about it tho12:13
joacimincluding theirs12:13
pedjafrinnst once said that the added benefit of dual booting is that he can ignore our sorry asses while he is in Windows :)12:16
joacimwe are worse than windows?12:16
joacimway rude12:17
joacimeven worse than clippy12:18
pedjaClippy is still a thing?12:19
pedjahaven't used MS Office in years12:19
joacimi think he is background art it the banner of a certain program12:20
joacimi dont remember where it is12:20
pedjareplaced by Cortana(?) in Win10. yay progress12:21
joacimfrinnst: which one is literally clippy12:54

abenzhi frinnst13:50
abenzsorry to say the segfault issue seems to be hardware13:51
abenzAMD replaced CPUs that were RMA'd13:51
abenzthreadripper and epyc cpus are not affected13:51
abenzryzen batches later than a specific date are not affected either13:51
abenzjust in case you didn't know.. bug doesn't seem to be reproducible on windows! So just a specific group who do heavy compiles (mostly gentoo users on AMD forums) are affected13:53
abenzjaeger ^13:53
frinnstoh really13:56
frinnstyeah I didnt know13:56
frinnstgot any docs on that? Doubt my retailer I bought it from are aware13:56
abenzwalls upon walls, go to last pages, you'll see users reporting on their RMAs13:58
abenzcontact AMD they seem to be responsive13:59
frinnstthats not how we do it in sweden - i'll talk to the shop i bought it from first :-)13:59
frinnstDo you have any references for earliest fixed batch etc?14:00
abenzthe batch is printed on the CPU itself only14:03
joacimtypically when you contact the manufacturer in norway, you're told to contact the retailer14:04
joacimi assume sweden is the same14:04
abenzmost reliable if you need to present "proof", is the AMD forum, where amd employees interact with affected customers..14:04
joacimkind regards. clippy14:04
abenz"Performance Marginality Performance" issue, is what AMD calls the bug14:05
abenzI meant "Ryzen Marg...."14:05
joacimi've had some crashes on mine14:11
joacimbut ill check the build date before i start any RMA process14:11
frinnstmine hasnt been *that* unstable.. i can do a system rebuild and maybe need to manually retry 2-3 packages14:18
frinnstjaegers seems a lot worse than mine14:19
*** parlos has joined #crux14:34

frinnstwohoo, 32gb used - 50%!17:18
pedjawhat are you building? chromium?17:19
frinnst2 versions of firefox and rust17:22
abenzare you trying to trigger the segfault? there's a script that can do it17:26
frinnstno, just trying to get shit done (tm)17:28
SiFuhpedja the Irish Vampire?17:29
pedjaSiFuh, yup :)17:29
SiFuhhis accent isn't that thick17:30
SiFuhbut yeah i understand17:30
pedjaI understand maybe 1/3 of what he says17:30
SiFuhhaha I should start writing subtitles then17:30
SiFuhMy favorite comedian is Rhod Gilbert. Many of my friends don't understand his English either17:31
pedjahe is Welsh, right?17:31
SiFuhAnd I never knew about the Marvels The Defenders Series17:32
pedjaI watched him host NMTB a few times.17:32
SiFuhWIll watch soon17:33
pedjaI have, by far, most problems understanding John Bishop :)17:36
SiFuhHmm  i didn't think him to be funny17:37
SiFuhtypical australia/british twat whom tinks he is funny17:37
pedjahe was quite good a few times I watched him on Graham Norton show17:38

SiFuh" they always laghing at mine "17:44
frinnstanyone using the bfq block scheduler?17:44
pedjaI do17:45
SiFuhpedja: the part where once you get the started they don't shut up?17:45
frinnstthought i'd give it a go, but for some reason I cant select it as the default scheduler17:45
pedjafrinnst, the developer removed that option :)17:46
pedjaI use the udev rule to set it up17:46
pedjamq-deadline is default if you don't set any17:47
pedjathe logic behind removal is that kernel will, at some point, automagically set the 'appropriate' scheduler for the device, iirc17:48
pedja'none' for SSD, kyber for spinning rust17:49
pedjaSiFuh, yes. Jack D is brilliant17:51
*** parlos has quit IRC17:51
pedjawhen you watch MtW, you can see that most of the female comedians struggle to keep up17:52
pedjaSandi Toksvig is good as QI host, in part because she lets the guests actually say something :)17:55

*** andrei-n has joined #crux18:14

SiFuhpedja: you insulted me about my kernel being a dinosaur18:14
SiFuhyou really think my VirtualBox is any newer?18:14

pedjaSiFuh, Serbia is 2nd in the world in guns per capita :)18:20
SiFuhmy house is pretty close18:21
SiFuhi should become your next door neighbour18:22
pedjasince he is the world class shithead, I could use the change :)18:24
SiFuhi think we should all move to Russia18:24
cruxbot[core.git/3.3]: e2fsprogs: updated to 1.43.618:24
SiFuhthanks cruxbot :-) you just destroyed my comment18:25
pedjano, thank you, I already have Putin-wannabe as a president.18:26
SiFuhPutin is great18:26
pedja(for any FSB agents out there) yes, yes he is...18:27
SiFuhand the Serbian Presidnet looks like a Bill Gates on Estrogen.18:28

SiFuhBosnia like a ducks foot18:35
SiFuhkosovo isn't recognized18:35
pedjaSerbia has its issues, sure, but it's still the best I got18:36
SiFuhoh kosovo is recognized by 111 states18:36
SiFuhyes pedja: you still my brother18:36
pedjamost of the issues here stem from the fact that the government is exploiting mercifully the notion of the 'good old days'18:40
pedjathey are doing just fine, richer than they ever hoped to be.18:41
pedjameanwhile, most of the regular folks are struggling, some more than others18:42
SiFuhsounds like USA and Australia18:43
pedjaI talked to many people that left, to EU or USA.18:44
pedjamost of them say it's not (just) about the money, they just want to live in a country that is somewhat stable18:46

pedjaor at least not robbing them blind :)18:53
pedjabut enough with the off-topic stuff, this is a technical channel, not therapy session18:56
pedjait's hilarious that mono, made by Microsoft, has saner build system then Rust, made by Mozilla, open source champions19:37
onoderarust is *absolutly* terrible19:47
onoderaI can't get cargo to build on crux, since cargo depends on rustc and rustc on cargo, and they don't have a nice bootstrap or something19:48
pedjaRomster has rust and cargo ports19:59
just_funfrinnst too20:00
onoderaah nice, I didn't know20:00
pedjago is slightly saner :)20:02

frinnstTrash$ du -sh20:19
frinnstjust by luck that I found it20:19
frinnstnah, some qt app that you might use to download large amounts of data :-)20:23
pedjaTrash is freedesktop thing, I think20:23
