pedjajoacim, can't you make a tarball from yquake2 git snapshot and use that to update the port?10:27
pedjaI can host it at bitbucket, if you want10:28

pedjaVega VII(heh) is a compute beast, apparently. too bad 1.openCL is not that widespread as CUDA 2. rocm stack is still a PITA to set up on Linux10:53
pedja'vega 7 is a fail, not a gamers card, and now I am forced to buy rtx2080'. forced, really?10:57
john_cephalopodaI can easily play from two sources with the proper asoundrc.11:48
john_cephalopodaOh, I was scrolled up.11:50
john_cephalopodaI had the best experience with ALSA. I have to write a proper asound.conf, but once that's set up it works.11:52
john_cephalopodaAlso I added a line to my bashrc, which finds out if my synth is plugged in and plays out through that if it is.11:53

pedja39.1Gb dataset is listed as 'rather large'. yes, yes it is :)14:53
Anselmowait, is that really that large, or what are the other terms ?14:54
Anselmocause if 39.1Gb is rather large, I know people who deal with like,thoroughly incredile ones sometimes c_c14:55
pedjaAnselmo, 'very large' is 47Gb and 'extra large' 53Gb :)15:19
pedjait's this
pedja'pa_context_connect() failed: Connection refused' well, haven't seen that one in a while. wth15:33
pedjaxfce pulseaudio plugin, 23G VIRT. ffs15:53
pedjaand climbing15:53

john_cephalopodaWhen you mess with 3D point cloud processing (3d scanning environments), you end up with giant data sets, even with small areas.16:16
john_cephalopodaWhen will pulse and systemd finally go away...?16:17
joacimwhen someone make another replacement =)16:27
john_cephalopodaWhat doesn't work with ALSA and sysVinit?16:34
joacimbluetooth headphones i think16:53
joacimat least the configuration of them is more complicated16:54
joacimplain alsa do leave some thing to be desired, but i dont think pulse is the best solution either16:54
joacimi dont know why the latency in quakespasm is so fucked. it is fine in quakespasm16:55
joacim*fine in gzdoom16:55

john_cephalopodaLinux kinda makes hard tasks easier and easy tasks harder.17:22
john_cephalopodaChanging your MAC address? One command! Writing a text document? First install libreoffice by getting an rpm, unpacking it and installing it, then get error messages because it expects some Java stuff, which isn't there but not practically needed, then write your document, put it onto an other computer running the same libreoffice version but Windows - and it is garbled.17:24
john_cephalopodaSetting up kismet to sniff wireless networks? One command! Finding out what the SSID of the network you're connected is? Impossible!17:26
john_cephalopodaRouting audio through half a dozen plugins with jack? Simple! Getting firefox to recognize my microphone on Linux? Hah, you wish.17:27
*** pedja has joined #crux17:36
john_cephalopodaSane defaults, modular and clear designs, and simple tools that do one thing and do it well seem rare.17:39
pedjawell, that was fun.17:43
pedjaI hate when I 'solve' the issue using TheWindowsWay[tm], but can't debug it anyway, nothing in the logs17:45

joacimlooks like nvidia will support freesync officially now20:55
joacimabout time =)20:55
pedjawell, the monitors will be 'g-sync compatible', iirc, so not really :)21:01
joacimofc. it is good that they support freesync, but it is a bit of a wrong step in the right direction21:02
pedjarumor has it that they could do that years ago with a driver switch, but oh well21:03
pedjaand only 1000 and 2000 series gpu, afaik21:03
joacimyeah i hear some of those gsync laptops were really just freesync too21:04
pedjaputting extra hw into laptop panel is...tricky, I guess :)21:05
pedjafreesync, g-sync, adaptive-sync. ffs21:09
