[10:43] <blindcoder> and I'm still unsure what to do with the menu creation
[10:43] <daja77> yeah just saw that stf rediffed one of mine
[10:43] <blindcoder> I know that it works flawlessly with at least KDE and icewm
[10:43] <blindcoder> but I don't know if clifford would apply it anyway
[10:45] <daja77> well if it does not interfere with other changes and does not create a maintainance mess i guess it will
[10:45] <blindcoder> well, define maintenance mess
[10:46] <blindcoder> the name of binaries rarely chagne
[10:46] <blindcoder> so it's mostly create-and-forget
[10:46] <daja77> good
[10:46] <blindcoder> KDE automatically searches /usr/share/applications/

[10:47] <blindcoder> (the menu format hasn't changed since I started using icewm years ago)

[10:55] <blindcoder> netrunner:  There are 4 types of desktop entries: Application, Link, FSDevice  and Directory.
[10:55] <daja77> hi netrunner

[11:57] <netrunner> blindcoder: yes. or does something like Coworker/Observe exist? ;)

[11:59] <blindcoder> I see that it depends on X but I can't see if it's console or not
[12:00] <netrunner> blindcoder: it is X. it reads the http traffic, greps image urls and displays the images in a window.

[12:01] <blindcoder> yes :)

[20:42] <blindcoder> gal
[20:42] <SerWou> i've got an error againnn ;)
[20:43] <SerWou> mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9.img 2.6.9
[20:43] <SerWou>     Can't open /lib/modules//boot/initrd-2.6.9.img: No such directory.
[20:43] <SerWou>     Usage: /sbin/mkinitrd [ kernel-version ]
[20:43] <blindcoder> that error is obvious and left as an excercise for the reader
[20:43] <th> must be trunk ;)
[20:43] <th> so user can be expected to be experienced enough
[20:44] <blindcoder> th: sorry to dump it on you, but it's also in stable :D
[20:44] <th> blindcoder: there is no 2.6.9 in stable ;-p
[20:44] <blindcoder> SerWou: just use mkinitrd 2.6.9-rock
[20:44] <blindcoder> th: damn
[20:45] <SerWou> only that blindcoder
[20:45] <blindcoder> SerWou: or mkinitrd `uname -r`
[20:45] <SerWou> 2.6.9 in my case
[20:48] <SerWou> other questio
[20:48] <SerWou> what is the booloader, it's not grub, i have to edit the boot loader to tell him i want to boot on the second kernel to see if it work
[20:49] <blindcoder> can only be lilo then
[20:49] <SerWou> in /boot i can see only grub
[20:49] <blindcoder> then it must be grub
[20:49] <SerWou> but no grub.conf file
[20:50] <blindcoder> wouldn't that be /boot/grub/menu.lst
[20:50] <SerWou> ho yes
[20:50] <SerWou> got it
[20:50] <SerWou> thanks
[20:50] <SerWou> why it's different on rock ?
[20:50] <blindcoder> I've never seen it different
[20:50] <th> SerWou: it isn't
[20:50] <th> SerWou: it's different on other distros
[20:50] <blindcoder> hehe :)
[20:51] <th> SerWou: menu.lst is the "grub" default
[20:51] <SerWou> ho ok
[20:51] <SerWou> i'm a Linux AND rock newbie ;)
[20:51] <netrunner> there are green coloured dists that have a global config file on some place ...
[20:51] <blindcoder> netrunner: don't remind me of bad memories
[20:51] <SerWou> hehe
[20:51] <SerWou> what is that ?
[20:51] <blindcoder> that file was scary
[20:52] <th> SerWou: he is trying to forget about...
[20:52] <th> ...

[20:54] <th> ...soap... you named it
[20:57] <SerWou> i don't know that
[20:57] <SerWou> i bet i will never know it
[20:58] <SerWou> vi and vim are doing a mess when i'm editing a file, when i move arrows, it inserts characters, i can't delete characters, etc.. what's happend ?
[20:59] <blindcoder> SerWou: a) only invoke vim
[20:59] <SerWou> nano works fine
[20:59] <blindcoder> SerWou: b) echo -e "set nocompatible\nsyntax on\nset backspace=2" >>~/.vimrc
[20:59] <blindcoder> SerWou: c) use vim again :-)
[21:00] <SerWou> what is this command ?
[21:00] <blindcoder> SerWou: it is creating a basic usable vimrc for you
[21:00] <SerWou> can you explain to me the error and the solution
[21:00] <SerWou> Oh ok
[21:00] <blindcoder> the error is that vi doesn't know about arrow keys
[21:00] <SerWou> ha ok
[21:00] <blindcoder> the solution is to only invoke vim (with the m) and create a usable vimrc
[21:01] <th> u can even use evim
[21:01] mnemoc_ (~amery@ left irc: Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)

[21:05] <blindcoder> no
[21:06] <th> it's a one-time command-mode from insert mode
[21:06] <th> blindcoder: so you can save with "C-o :w"

[21:06] <blindcoder> that's really strange
[21:10] <SerWou> eterm

[21:17] <SerWou> how can i fix that
[21:17] <SerWou> i made a mistake, i know ;)

[21:28] <SerWou> fs... i don't know, the default one, devfs i guess ?
[21:28] <netrunner> SerWou: you are repeating the error. look at it.
[21:28] <SerWou> initrd.img ?
[21:28] <blindcoder> SerWou: ehm, no. I doubt that :)

[21:29] <SerWou> little SerWou is fighting against Big Linux
[21:29] <SerWou> ext3
[21:29] <blindcoder> netrunner: I doubt that's the problem. I think he missed his filesystem in the new kernel
[21:29] <netrunner> SerWou: comment the initrd out, you won't need it probably.
[21:30] <netrunner> blindcoder: I doubt that. if he is using standard kernel, it has all fs enabled.
[21:30] <blindcoder> 2.6.9 is not rock standard kernel, now is it?
[21:30] <netrunner> SerWou: the rock kernels name is vmlinuz-2.6.9-rock iirc
[21:31] <SerWou> vmlinuz-2.6.9 for me, is it important to have -rock ?
[21:31] <netrunner> SerWou:  do you have a file named /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9 ?
[21:31] <SerWou> yes
[21:31] <SerWou> and initrd-2.6.9.img
[21:31] <SerWou> gonna fix that too
[21:32] <blindcoder> netrunner: stop confoosing him :)
[21:32] <SerWou> Rocklinux 2.4.25 works fine
[21:32] <blindcoder> netrunner: 2.6.9 isn't even in trunk yet
[21:32] <netrunner> blindcoder: why? chaos is the first step to enlightenment.
[21:32] <blindcoder> netrunner: oh, right
[21:32] <SerWou> hehe
[21:33] <netrunner> (not e-17, that's still unstable)
[21:33] <blindcoder> netrunner: hehe
[21:33] <SerWou> 2.6.9 is not supported by rock ?
[21:34] <blindcoder> SerWou: sure is
[21:34] <blindcoder> SerWou: just not yet :)
[21:34] <SerWou> haaaaaaaaa
[21:34] <SerWou> i don't know what to do
[21:34] <SerWou> i'm lossssssst
[21:34] <SerWou> i don't want to install Windauze
[21:34] <netrunner> SerWou: tell us the error you get while booting. 
[21:34] <SerWou> ok
[21:34] <SerWou> give me a sec
[21:35] Action: netrunner now stopping the wild guessing here.
[21:35] <blindcoder> netrunner: dakara! he doesn't have ext? in his kernel
[21:35] <SMP> SerWou: huh? 2.6.9 works just fine for running a Rock. just not for the kernel-headers during build
[21:35] <netrunner> blindcoder: so why doesn't he compile it in now?
[21:36] <blindcoder> netrunner: because you're confusing him about filenames
[21:36] <netrunner> SMP: don't confuse him with advanced theories like headers
[21:36] Action: blindcoder is great in putting the blame on someone, don't forget that :)
[21:36] <netrunner> blindcoder: you could have told him.
[21:36] Action: netrunner blaming back. *blam*
[21:36] <blindcoder> netrunner: I tried but you flooded my super-special and mega-accurate information away :P
[21:36] <SMP> netrunner: tell blindcoder not to scare people away by saying "doesn't work" ;>
[21:37] <blindcoder> SMP: I never said that! *cry*
[21:37] <netrunner> blindcoder: stop scaring people away by saying "doesn't work"
[21:37] <SerWou> tssssssssssssss tsssssssss tssssssss
[21:37] <blindcoder> netrunner: I never said that! *cry*3~
[21:37] <netrunner> SerWou: you started a civil war here.
[21:37] <netrunner> blindcoder: yes you did !!elf!
[21:38] <blindcoder> netrunner: no I didn't!!!one!!!!eleven!
[21:38] <netrunner> SerWou: so, what's the message? :)
[21:38] <netrunner> SerWou: we already found out that we already found your problem. at least blindy complains he has.
[21:39] Action: blindcoder goes sulking in a corner
[21:40] <SerWou> give me a sec
[21:40] <SerWou> do not move away plz ;)
[21:40] <netrunner> SerWou: you compiled that kernel yourself?
[21:41] <SerWou> infortunatly yes ;)
[21:41] <SerWou> but i've got a working model
[21:41] <netrunner> SerWou: ok. open the menuconfig again, select the ext2 filesystem to be compiled into the kernel.
[21:41] Action: netrunner pretending he's the one who found it.
[21:42] <blindcoder> Ah. AAH! AAAAAHHHHH!
[21:42] <blindcoder> not fair!
[21:42] <SerWou> VFS : cannot open root device "ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 or unknow-block(0,0)    please, append a correct "root=" boot option
[21:43] <SerWou> kernel Panic - not syncing, VFS unable to mount root fs on unknowblock
[21:43] <netrunner> SerWou: you read what I told you? (and what blindy told you before?)
[21:44] <SerWou> yes
[21:44] <SerWou> recompile the kernel with the ext2 support
[21:44] <netrunner> SerWou: have you done that?
[21:44] <SerWou> not yet
[21:45] <SerWou> 2sec please
[21:45] <netrunner> tic tac tic tac
[21:45] <blindcoder> I want a machine that recompiles a kernel in 2 secs, too!
[21:45] <netrunner> blindcoder: didn't you learn not to make clean?
[21:46] <blindcoder> not... you mean... just do...
[21:46] Action: blindcoder looking dumb into the channel
[21:47] <SerWou> ok, i actived the ext2, gonna recompile it
[21:47] <blindcoder> SerWou: you may also want ext3 and reiserfs
[21:48] <SerWou> xfs yes
[21:48] <blindcoder> ext3 is the first possible selection during the installation
[21:48] <daja77> blindcoder: you can drop that qemu desktop file ...
[21:48] <blindcoder> daja77: why? doesn't it have a gui?
[21:49] <daja77> it has, but just starting qemu doesn't do anything at all, you need params like -hda and stuff
[21:49] <blindcoder> sucks
[21:49] <daja77> it just doesn't know what to start ;)
[21:50] <blindcoder> a vmware-like gui, of course :P
[21:50] <SerWou> compilation in progress
[21:51] <daja77> well knoppix has a bochs entry in kde menu, which is not working too ;)
[21:51] <blindcoder> daja77: bah crappix
[21:51] <daja77> hehe ack
[21:54] <netrunner> blindcoder: dsniff stuff is not x iirc
[21:54] <blindcoder> well, it needs x{free86,org}
[21:54] <daja77> ok tested it running qemu without arguments prints -h stuff
[21:54] <blindcoder> feel free to post incremental patches :D
[21:54] <daja77> perhaps starting it in konsole would be an option
[21:55] <blindcoder> daja77: if it only prints -h then it's not a big help
[21:55] <SerWou> by the way, where to grab konsole and install it on rock ? ;)
[21:56] <blindcoder> SerWou: on scavenger.homeip.net/ROCK/sonar/search.pl you can search the contents of packages
[21:56] <blindcoder> try searching for bin/konsole there
[21:56] <daja77> konsole is a kde program
[21:56] <SerWou> ok
[21:56] <SerWou> thanks
[21:56] <SerWou> yes
[21:57] <daja77> guess kdebase
[22:00] <SerWou> the link is Out Of Order
[22:02] <blindcoder> hoeh?
[22:02] <blindcoder> works fine here
[22:03] <SerWou> yes, now it's ok
[22:03] <blindcoder> well, it's just a lousy perl script on a slow 500MHz machine with almost-dead hard disks
[22:03] <blindcoder> so it will take a bit :)
[22:07] <netrunner> blindcoder: you are advertising a high-end dbk with your lousy hardware? ;)
[22:08] <blindcoder> netrunner: well, it runs stable on it :)
[22:09] <daja77> netrunner: any news regarding saturday, just reminding it is this saturday ;)
[22:09] <netrunner> daja77: tomorrow I can tell you if I get a car.
[22:10] <netrunner> daja77: anybody else planning to come?
[22:10] <daja77> no idea, fake pinged me while i was on the road, but have no mail or sth
[22:11] Action: netrunner has feature freeze for his bachelor thesis on sunday.
[22:11] <daja77> ic
[22:11] <netrunner> but that's not the main problem, I expect I could write a bit there.
[22:12] <daja77> i hope so
[22:12] <daja77> i should prepare my talk ...
[22:12] <netrunner> hm, where was it again? leipzig?
[22:12] <netrunner> ah dresden
[22:12] <daja77> yep
[22:13] <daja77> I'll be there from 8, at least i hope so
[22:13] <SerWou> netrunner
[22:13] <SerWou> same error
[22:13] <netrunner> SerWou
[22:13] <netrunner> SerWou: what does mount | grep part1 tell you?
[22:14] <blindcoder> SerWou: do you have devfs and automount devfs on boot activated?
[22:14] <netrunner> blindcoder: good point
[22:14] <blindcoder> netrunner: of course, it's from me :D
[22:14] <SerWou> certainly a bad configuration in my kernel options
[22:14] <netrunner> SerWou: listen to the blindcoder.

[22:15] <SerWou> how i can check that blindcoder ?
[22:15] <blindcoder> SerWou: it's in filesystems, too
[22:15] <netrunner> SerWou: grep DEVFS .config 
[22:16] <netrunner> SerWou: in your kernel source dir
[22:16] <blindcoder> netrunner: advanced kernel theories again?
[22:16] <netrunner> blindcoder: I try to obfuscate it.
[22:16] <blindcoder> I see I see
[22:16] <netrunner> oh, dresden has a 0 prefixed plz
[22:16] <SerWou> # CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is not set
[22:16] <blindcoder> anyway, me and my wisdom now want to rest
[22:16] <blindcoder> good night!
[22:16] <netrunner> SerWou: congratz
[22:17] <SerWou> good night blindcoder and thanks
[22:17] <netrunner> SerWou: echo "CONFIG_DEVFS_FS=y \nCONFIG_DEVFS_MOUNT=y" >>.config
[22:17] <netrunner> SerWou: or go to the menuconfig and look for the devfs options. they are under filesystems somewhere.
[22:18] <netrunner> oh, echo -e that is
[22:20] <SerWou> kernel automounter support ?
[22:21] <netrunner> SerWou: devfs yes, and mount devfs automatically yes. that's the first you change please.
[22:21] <netrunner> SerWou: the automounter is not neccessary.
[22:21] <SerWou> already checked
[22:22] <SerWou> damned
[22:22] <SerWou> i think i will never able to compile a kernel alone
[22:23] <netrunner> SerWou: that comes with the time.
[22:26] <SerWou> i'm fucked up
