prologicFatal: geo_query_dev HDIO_GETGEO (dev 0x0800): Bad file descriptor02:28
prologicAnyone seen this from lilo before?02:28
prologicThis is a statically built lilo 24.2 (latest?)02:28
prologicopen("/dev/hda", O_RDWR)                = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)03:09
prologicI cannot understand why lilo is trying to open /dev/hda when its told to write to /dev/sda ?03:09
prologicThen it ties to do an ioctl on it03:09
prologicioctl(7, HDIO_GETGEO, 0x7ffe600353c0)   = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)03:09
prologicand naturally fails03:09
prologicit doesn't exist you stupid pos :)03:10

prologichttps://gist.github.com/prologic/7bafe10db44f6ebddf3d8f4e9a0a842305:12
SiFuhThat error is Lilo having trouble getting disk geometry05:14
prologicI know that05:14
prologicbut its tryint to get disk geomery of a disk that doesn't exit05:14
prologicexist*05:14
SiFuhYou running lilo in chroot?05:14
prologicalso if you tell lilo to install to /dev/sda why da fuq is it trying to scan /dev/hda ?05:15
prologicwhich again doesn't actually exist in /dev05:15
prologic :)05:15
prologiclilo in chroot yes?05:15
prologicI mean yes :)05:15
prologicFWIW it fails outside the chroot too05:23
SiFuhWell that's a certainty05:23
SiFuhWell, from what I read of you error, is that lilo is accessing sr0/sda and then can't find the partition sda105:24
prologicwait what05:25
SiFuhI also find it interesting that your disk has an id of 0 'id=00000000'05:26

prologicwell this happens in VirtualBox too05:33
SiFuhI have several CRUX installs in Virtualbox and I have never seen an error like that05:34
prologicthis isn't CRUX :)05:34
SiFuhOnly one uses lilo05:34
prologicits something very custom I'm making05:35
SiFuhOh, what is it?05:35
SiFuhCool05:35
prologicyou don't happen to know how to install the syslinux bootloader by hand do you? :)05:35
prologici.e: with a shell script05:35
SiFuhI do05:35
prologico'really?05:36
prologicshoe mw :)05:36
SiFuhI wrote a short wiki05:36
prologicthat might just solve my boot from hdd problems05:36
prologicwithout using the C extlinux tool right?05:36
SiFuhhttps://sifuh.github.io/Documentation/CRUX-Syslinux.html05:36
SiFuhif you are going to use syslinux and not extlinux  your boot partition should be fat05:37
prologicoh?05:37
prologicI can make that happen05:37
prologicbasically I'm trying to write a setup shell script to partition, format and setup /dev/sda05:38
prologicthis part of your wiki05:38
prologic> Now we install the syslinux bootloader on the boot partition. You can use the command syslinux for FAT systems or extlinux for ext2/ext3/ext4 or FAT systems. We will be using extlinux even though our partition is FAT.05:39
prologicYOu still use extlinux to do the job05:39
SiFuhI wrote a virus back in the 90s that use to do that ;-)05:39
prologicwhich I _think_ is doing some magic on the partitions VBR05:39
prologicso thats the part I get stuck on with syslinux05:39
prologicI can't compile syslinux here at all :/05:39
SiFuhI installed syslinux I think in slackware, and I haven't touched it since. The machine is running CRUX now, with the same slackware syslinux install05:40
SiFuhthe part most people seem to miss is actually writing the mbr with dd05:41
prologicmy understanding is that extlinux puts ldlinux.sys somewhere on the VBR05:41
prologicno I never missed that part :)05:41
prologicbut the mbr isn't enough alone05:42
SiFuhNow I am curious about something. BRB going to do a test05:49
prologicyaeh so I just ran a few tests myself05:50
prologicif I use extlinux --install /boot05:51
prologicit does more than just copying a few things which I can do with cp05:51
prologicit installs the syslinux bootloader somewhere05:51
prologicyou still ned the mbr.bin dd'd as well05:51
prologicI wonder if its as simple as dd'ing ./bios/core/ldlinux.bss to /dev/sda1 ?05:52
SiFuhIt's what I am looking at05:54
SiFuhSee with my current system, I never touched /boot or the mbr. I left it like that after slackware or what ever distro was on the disk before I turned it into crux. I messed around with the other partitions. When I installed crux I didn't bother even installing syslinux. I just edited the syslinux.cfg in /boot only05:55
SiFuhOnce it is installed you never have to touch it again. If you change anything, it is just the config. No need to run special commands or such05:56
prologicnope05:56
prologicthat ruined the bootup05:56
prologicOH I agree05:57
prologicthats one of the reasons I want ot use syslinux05:57
prologicyou only need to install it once on a disk05:57
prologicbut thats the tricky part :) how without using extlinux itself05:57
SiFuhare all the partitions going to be the same automatically or is a user going to specify different sizes ?05:59
prologicnope this is all automatic06:10
prologicsetup /dev/sda06:10
prologicand it just does everything06:10
prologicisngle primary partition, full disk06:10
prologicext2 fs06:10
prologicdd ldlinux.bss to /dev/sda1 doesn't work06:25
prologicit looks like it should fit on a sector06:25
SiFuhno06:25
SiFuhbut I think dd could work06:25
prologicit has to :)06:26
prologicextlinux can't be that magical :)06:27
SiFuhwhat I did is dump a small section of /dev/sda1   then installed extlinux and dumped again  and compared the two dumps06:27
prologicthat's what I was going to do next :)06:31
SiFuh2175 differnt bytes06:31
prologicand what have you found?06:31
SiFuhhttp://dpaste.com/3EVKMP006:32
SiFuhthat's all new    syslinux.cfg is /boot/syslinux  and the filesystem is ext406:32
SiFuhthe boot and root /dev/sda106:32
SiFuhand it looks nothing like ldlinux.sys06:34
prologicno06:38
prologicbut id does look very much like ldlinux.bss06:38
prologicwhich is 512 bytes06:38
prologicSiFuh LMK if you discover a way to install the syslinux bootloader with regular shell and dd07:03
prologicI'll bbl07:03
SiFuhwill do07:08

deep42thoughtHi, the openldap source times out - does anyone have a mirror of that?07:09

SiFuhI sent it yesterday07:12

cruxbot[contrib.git/3.5]: sccache: 0.2.12 -> 0.2.1308:28
prologicSiFuh I'm having another go at this08:30
prologicdd the ldlinux.bss to /dev/sda108:30
prologicdd the mbr.bin to /dev/sda08:30
prologiccopy ldlinux.{sys.c32}08:30
prologicwe'll see08:30
SiFuhYeah I found a problem08:32
SiFuhThis takes a boot sector and merges in the syslinux fields, then patches the boot sector and ldlinux.sys based on a sector map08:33
SiFuhEach install is unique. I tried building 2 identical systems and failed using dd08:33
SiFuhThen I read the syslinux.h and saw that at the bottom.08:34
SiFuhinside the program binary extlinux is the mbr it inserts into the declared partition for boot08:34
prologicI see08:37
SiFuh511 bytes08:40
prologicthe main problem I have with syslinix is I can't compile it08:41
prologicwhich is the primary reason I'm exploring installing the bootloader with some shell + dd or something08:42

SiFuhprologic: it looks you will only need extlinux 'gptmbr.bin/mbr.bin' ldlinux.c32 ldlinux.sys12:25
SiFuhunless you plan on using UEFI systems as well then everything changes12:26
prologicforget UEFI for now :)12:28
prologicseparate problem entirely12:28
SiFuhI show you what I did with package file12:29
prologic*nods* still building; had a few troubles with your patch but hopefully ok now12:29
SiFuhhttp://dpaste.com/1Z5GSDW12:29
prologicoh you have a 4th patch12:30
SiFuhonly when I was moving  files around12:30

*** onodera has joined #crux12:51
prologicfixed the patches12:54
prologicneeded util-linux-dev on the host12:55
SiFuhI was going to find a way to compile extlinux only without having to compile all of syslinux but then I got preoccupied with something else :-P12:58
prologichttps://www.slax.org/blog/18931-Static-extlinux.html12:59
prologichah12:59
SiFuhcool13:06
prologicits a quick and fast way to validate the setup script13:07
prologicit'll be nice to modify the compilation of extlinux though to just build extlinux only13:07
prologicif you like once this works I'll publish the Git repo if you feel like helping and tinkering with improvements :)13:07
john_cephalopodaStrange blog format. Comments are more prominent than the actual blog entry.13:22
john_cephalopodaHm, the libreoffice-bin package seems to be a bit buggy. Is it just that release or is libreoffice from source just as buggy?13:27
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: I myself don't use it as it was compiled with kde or something13:28
john_cephalopodaAh, the source version finally compiled.13:31
SiFuhrequires 188 packages ;-)13:32
SiFuhi built it on clean CRUX core  install lastnight13:33
john_cephalopodaThe UI looks better in the source one, the document is a bit broken though.13:35
john_cephalopoda*sigh*13:36
john_cephalopodaThe choice between Pest and Cholera.13:37

SiFuhI wouldn't know, I have a lot of fonts installed due to my need for multi lingual support13:51
john_cephalopodaHa, it works.13:52
john_cephalopodaApparently it lacked the MS core fonts, but it didn't tell anything.13:52
SiFuhheh bugreport ;-) ?13:53
john_cephalopodaWell, maybe it logged something in the console.13:54
john_cephalopodaBut wow, the compiled version is so smooth and responsive.13:54
SiFuhYes, probably because it has not KDE crap ;-)13:58
john_cephalopodaI don't think that KDE could slow down my computer like that.14:01
SiFuhKDE is evil14:02
prologicSiFuh it works14:08

prologichave you heard of this thing called static-get/14:51
prologichttp://javier.io/blog/en/2015/06/23/static-get.html14:52

john_cephalopodaRe. static linking: I had more server downtime because I deleted glibc and nothing was linked statically than from any attacks driven against my server ;)15:57

SiFuhOff-line CPU(s) list: 4-717:02
SiFuhwondering why my machine was heating up and using only 4 cores for everything17:04
SiFuhstenur: you around?17:58
stenurhmhm17:58
SiFuhyesterday you mentioned that you temp never gets that high17:59
stenur'thought you had SMT off when looking at yestedays snapshot17:59
SiFuhAm I probably missing something in the kernel?17:59
stenurI also use powersave scheduler17:59
SiFuhI too17:59
SiFuhI was looking at governers18:00
stenurthat i meant. do not ask me no questions.18:00
SiFuh:-P18:01
stenurAlso i have no drivers for a lot of things like cameras, my backlight is at 6% at the moment.18:01
SiFuhI had one option enabled but the rest were not.18:01
SiFuhbacklight 50% here18:02
SiFuhI will mess around with some kernel options.18:02
stenurhuh. That Lenovo display is strange. It hurts the eyes when i increase this when its dark. The Apple displays were really a lot better in that respect.18:03
SiFuhstenur: agree actually. Some of those Chinese screens are like staring into the sun when the brightness is set to Supernova18:04
stenurI used to use "echo med_power_with_dipm > $f" where $f is "f in /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/link_power_management_policy", but that no more with NVME.18:04
stenurSiFuh: that is a nice description.18:04
stenurThen there is "sysctl vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs vm.stat_interval", and i had "#command -v hdparm && hdparm -B 10 /dev/sda", but also no more.18:05
stenurOf course "echo max_performance > $f" with ac_adapter present and "hdparm -B 128 /dev/sda" then18:06
SiFuhI use dirty_background_ratio dirty_ratio dirty_bytes for vm because lots of USB drive file transfers and I'd like to know the actually speed18:07
SiFuhif not it's transfer in a few seconds, but I may wait a long time for it to sync to the USB drive18:08
john_cephalopodaMy backlight is at 27.066667%.18:08
stenurWill look those up18:08
SiFuhxbacklight -set 5018:09
john_cephalopodaI have actually mapped the multimedia buttons to control backlight.18:09
SiFuhstenur: http://dpaste.com/26P0ZMY18:10
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: yeah mapping is cool, did it wil my OpenBSD gigabyte slate (It's dead now, so sad)18:10
stenur'just had to decrease to 5%. Won't get any lower, otherwise it is much too dark ;). I do all that via acpid: "Mar 14 19:09:22 kent root/acpid[16828]: 4: video/brightnessdown BRTDN 00000087 00000000"18:11
SiFuhI had the screen rotate and keyboard on and off18:11
john_cephalopodaSiFuh: I am using i3wm, you can simply set stuff like bindsym XF86MonBrightnessUp   exec --no-startup-id "xbacklight -inc 5"18:11
stenurthis /root/acpid than then call /root/backlight and that does ". /root/${HOSTNAME}/backlight" and then acts accordingly.18:12
SiFuhstenur: same club as me. Even my phone is set to the lowest. It wasn't for hurting my eyes, it was because I didn't need it so bright.18:12
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: fluxbox   ~/.fluxbox/keys      control F12 :Exec setxkbmap us18:12
SiFuh:-P18:12
stenurSiFuh: have that, check it later.  -- With the Apple displays it was really very different, i do not really remember, but it was more like john_cephalopoda's number18:13
SiFuhstenur: I hate Apple, but they do have beautiful screen displays.18:13
john_cephalopodaI got my setxkbmap in the .xinitrc :þ18:13
john_cephalopodaThat's what I use in i3 to set volume and backlight with multimedia keys: https://bpaste.net/573Q18:14
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: yeah but i only pasted one key18:14
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: at the bottome http://dpaste.com/25AXDQB18:15
stenurMe too. But the other things via ~/.cwmrc: "bind-key XF86MonBrightnessDown "/usr/local/bin/adjust-xf86-mediahooks.sh XF86MonBrightnessDown", and that just calls xmessage -center -timeout 1 "${msg}" where msg=/tmp/.acpid_brightness.  Poof.18:15
stenurOh, keymap adjustment via keypress.18:16
SiFuhand I disabled then   ctrl space because I use that for fcitx to change to chinese18:16
john_cephalopodaUnrelated: Is there any pretty Windows-style DE/WM that just works out-of-the-box and doesn't require much configuration?18:17
SiFuhalso have the keymap change in menu as an extra18:17
john_cephalopodaI need something for my parents but KDE/Gnome is a bit big and the rest just looks ugly unless heavily modded.18:17
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: yes.. fluxbox, you just copy your old config :-P18:17
stenurMy volume and brightness adjustments are more progressive. 1% wise in the lower/upper 15-20%, much higher otherwise.18:17
stenurDepends on the display, though. I have an old notebook which just knows about 15 different display brightnesses.18:18
stenurNot that i know of. 20 years ago there was a fvwm like one which looked like Windows 95, at least buttons and such.18:19
SiFuhi have never changed my brightness or needed too. It is why I never made a short cut key for it..  But I do like john_cephalopoda's idea. The volume, I have a menu option to mute and unmute but it is cool idea to since I have those keys  unmapped on my keyboard.18:19
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: I might work on this tomorrow or Monday. I have osd_cat so I could probably do an onscreen display also with the short cut key presses18:21
john_cephalopodaSiFuh: I barely use those keys. I usually adjust brightness with the xbacklight command manually and I adjust volume by opening a terminal, entering "am" (alias for alsamixer) and setting it there.18:23
john_cephalopodaMaybe I should try xfce. It was my first DE.18:27
SiFuhHoly crap  thanks john_cephalopoda18:28
SiFuhI added        232 :Exec xbacklight -dec 518:28
SiFuhand now fn + f8 works :-)18:28
john_cephalopodaNice!18:28
SiFuhyeah18:29
SiFuhi did     xev | grep --line-buffered keysym    because fn keys are hardware but in combo they produce a number. The number is all fluxbox needs18:29
SiFuh121 :Exec pactl set-sink-mute 0 toggle   toggle mute ;-)18:31
SiFuh122 :Exec pactl -- set-sink-volume 0 -1%   volume down 1%18:34
john_cephalopodaI wish my keyboard had actual buttons for multimedia instead of those Fn-combinations. Hitting "Meta-Shift-Return 'a' 'm' Return" and pressing up and down to adjust volume works just better than holding down Fn with my thumb and trying to hit the right button (F5 or F6).18:35
SiFuhflight mode has no key function18:35
SiFuhyeah understood18:35
SiFuhthanks for the path you directed me john_cephalopoda   it was something I was too lazy to look into18:37
SiFuhBut now I have functioning volume and brightness keys18:37
john_cephalopodaHeh, np18:37
stenurmy UEFI BIOS has options to change that; i am _so_ happy i can turn that shit off and _do_ need to press Fn in addition! I NEED MY FUNCTION KEYS.18:38
SiFuhI use fn f2 to off lcd and mod4 f2 to lock screen     the fn f2 function was the only one detected18:39
john_cephalopodaMy laptop has the fun function that pressing fn+1 toggles full-power fan action.18:40
stenurthat lenovo has acpi or X driver issues; i cannot use some of those keys at least under X, i.e., "the other function", like flight mode, and some more. luckily brightness and volume stuff works.18:40
john_cephalopodaSince Meta is directly next to Fn and Meta+1 chooses Workspace 1, I mistyped a few times and wondered why my fan suddenly spun up to max and wouldn't stop :þ18:41
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: same18:42
john_cephalopodaI only realized what the problem was after talking to a guy who works at the laptop company and he asked me what happens when pressing Fn+1.18:42
SiFuhjohn_cephalopoda: haha  I use alt+F{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0} to change desktops18:43

SiFuhYou all port bearers are assholes ;-)   making a new cd because your kernel sucks.. but oh it errors out because .footprints and .signatures don't match... Yeah thanks20:28
SiFuhhaha  going to recompile again....  but honestly it is the truth. How many times we compile a port but the .signature/.md5sum or the .footprint is wrong?.20:29
SiFuhwould be cool if there was an actual way to verifiy all these before added to repo20:30
TimB_SiFuh: what are you shouting about specifically?20:33
SiFuhI didn't use capital letters20:34
SiFuhTimB_: actually your ports are very well done20:35
TimB_ty, doesn't answer my question though :p20:35
SiFuhI can't because i started the recompile again20:35
SiFuhi was following the old   making a crux iso20:36
SiFuhhttps://crux.nu/Wiki/BuildingISO20:36
SiFuhand after waiting for quite some time in silence... it finaly failed and the results were .sginature and .footprint mismatch20:36
SiFuhThe next machine I wish to rape and pillage doesn't use sda it uses mmc20:39
SiFuhsupport in the kernel is very very poor20:40
SiFuhIn fact, I don't even know why mmc is even added to the kernel in CRUX since it doesn't even support anything mmc ;-)20:41
SiFuhSo naturally/of course I will have to build a crux iso with a modified kernel, and it fails due to mismatches including 'signature' which shouldn't even be an issue!20:44
jaeger-If you have hardware that needs to be added to the default kernel config, feel free to make suggestions20:54
SiFuhjaeger-: mmc is non standard sorry20:55
SiFuhI am just pissed off because after attempting exactly as the webpage says and failing, I cannot even open an xterm20:56
SiFuhxterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory20:56
SiFuhReason: get_pty: not enough ptys20:56
SiFuhI get that now and I didn't even touch my main system20:57
SiFuhand to add to it the signature fail20:57

frinnstnot sure, should do21:54
prologicwe'll see21:54
prologicI'm curious what I *have* to build/install into this OS to fully bootstrap gcc/glibc if one wants to21:54
frinnstwhat are you building on?21:54
prologicThe Host OS tha tbuilds this OS or the OS itself?22:00
frinnstboth22:01
frinnstthe backlog is too long to read through :-)22:01
prologicHost OS is an Alpine 3.11 container22:02
