Abdullahhello frinnst or jaeger, one of you had HDMI problems before. I think we have to enable it in kernel config first.06:01

Thom1I see crux contains only stable version of software, at least in official repo. Does "contrib" repo also contain only stable version ?08:15
*** leetspete has quit IRC08:15
Thom1ACTION don' speak english very well08:15
TimB_Thom1: I would suspect so, that or outdated ones08:22
Thom1for example I see nginx is available with 1.17.0 version which is the current development version, not the stable08:23
Thom1but it doesn't matter, I don't know crux so I have many questions :)08:25
TimB_nginx maybe offers newer features that are desired, but I have no idea08:25

Thom1I don't really understand if crux is a rolling-release or not. I just started a "prt-get sysup" and many core tools are update like sysvinit, shadow, util-linux. I install crux-3.5 only yesterday13:03
Anselmowhen you install, you install the packages from the ISO disk, which may be out of date already13:10
Anselmoand particularly recently things have been getting a lot of updates it seems13:11
Thom1I thought the core packages only get security fixes until the next crux release13:12
Thom1so I understand crux is a rolling release13:12
AnselmoI'm not involved in the development really so I dont quite know what's going on, I've usually regarded the versions as being a way to stage major updates that might be a pain for people to manage :P13:14
Thom1so you say some people upgrade packages only when a new crux is released ? English is not my first language so I can understand wrong13:19
AnselmoI was more reffering to packages that might break lots of things to upgrade them individually.13:23
AnselmoI'm not sure the actual criteria that are used to decide when a new version is reached for crux though, and probably shouldnt be talking about it :P13:24
Thom1ok, if I always stays up to date with "prt-get sysup", I'll never need to upgrade to the next crux release, correct ?13:24
Anselmoyou'll need to update the entries in /etc/ports, to point to the next versions,13:26
Thom1right, I didn't see13:26
Thom1thanks Anselmo :)13:28
Anselmoof course :313:28
dbrookeIt's recommended to update to a new release using the setup option on the iso because otherwise you may encounter library incompatibilities which break the toolchain13:38
dbrookesee "Incompatible changes" in
Thom1ok so I guess we can say crux is a rolling release13:40
Thom1thanks dbrooke :)13:40
dbrookeI would say so in most cases. The release version change is mainly to handle the incompatibilities mentioned.13:45

pedjaCrux is sort of the hybrid. stable-ish core packages (toolchain, mostly) and other packages updated fairly often (when they don't break stuff :) )14:42
juesort off ... :)14:44
jue note that we don't update our tool-chain (binutils, gcc, glibc) to new major versions during a release cycle, only at release bounderies.14:45
jue these tool-chain should be definitely bootstrapped, to use the packages from the ISO is the easiest method to get a propper one14:46
Thom1thanks for clarification :)14:46
*** leetspete has joined #crux14:46
pedjaweird segfaults when something is partially broken are fun :)14:47
pedjaor python C extensions thingies14:48
pedja(the fact that I used pip to install some stuff doesn't help, either)14:52
pedjait's a bit of the mess. then again, so am I14:53
pedjayay, new qt5 release. I am not looking forward to building that, tbh14:56

pedjaryzen 3000 cpu's are sure nice15:00
jaegeryeah, they're looking promising. I'll probably replace my skylake with one15:26
pedja8c one?15:30
pedjaone of those is 'the sweet spot', apparently15:32
jaegeryeah, probably the 3700x15:32
jaeger8c/16t with 65W TDP and 4.4GHz turbo clock15:33
pedjaare the m/b bios updates out yet?15:33
pedjaor are you getting x570 m/b too?15:34
jaegerI will have to buy a new MB, the intel one won't work... so might as well get X57015:48

pedjaah, sorry, I misunderstood :) (slower then usual I am today)17:15
pedjabuildzoid has an interesting video on 'do you really need x570 m/b'17:18
pedjatl;dw is 'you might not need it, but, if the price is right, you might as well get one'17:20
pedjam/b vendors seem to take Ryzen/Zen seriously this time around17:23
joacimshame about the tiny fan most motherboards has18:13
joacimbeen avoiding motherboards with fans ever since i had my abit nf7-s v2.018:13
joacimdidnt take long for that fan to fail and start making this horrible noise18:14
dlcusatek__ or anyone else, while rebuilding my 3.5 packages, gexiv2 got into a tight loop (  Anyone else encountered this?19:06
dlcusaOh, no "www." in the URL--try instead.19:08
jaegerthat looks like a vala problem. you could try disabling vala or use the updated version of vala from the MATE repo until tek updates the contrib one19:19
dlcusaThanks for the idea, jaeger.19:54

dlcusajaeger and others, replacing contrib/vala with mate/vala didn't change the build's behavior. :-(  I'll be back in several hours.22:39
jaegerAh, bummer. I ran into similar things that were caused by vala22:40
