[09:55] <blindcoder> should I install the machine with a Pentium3 optimised build or should I just stick to the Pentium-MMX one?
[09:57] Action: netrunner had bad experience with p4 opt, but p3 was fine iirc
[09:58] <blindcoder> yes, P4 is probably "experimental" :-)
[09:58] <blindcoder> the machine is a dual P3-Celeron anyway

[14:10] <netrunner> blindcoder: [ ] use loop-aes
[14:11] <netrunner> blindcoder: what's that for? I mean if I have loop-aes in my pkgconfig, I want it. otherwise not.
[14:19] <blindcoder> netrunner: so that people know it's there :)
[14:20] <netrunner> blindcoder: that makes the configure script unneccessary slow and the list of optioins unneccesarry long.
[14:20] <netrunner> blindcoder if wedo that for every pkg we have a list of >1k options there.
[14:21] <blindcoder> I seem to recall clifford volunteering (a long time ago) that he redoes the config thing in C
[14:38] <netrunner> blindcoder: that's not my point.
[14:41] <blindcoder> netrunner: well, while you're at it: please deactivate the printer system selection and mta selection when it's not necessary
[14:42] <blindcoder> netrunner: the problem is that the config system needs an overhaul
[14:42] <blindcoder> there are just too many things and not enough speeds
[14:42] <blindcoder> that doesn't boil down to loop-aes being the problem
[14:45] <netrunner> blindcoder: printing system selection is neccessary as you can have multiple installed and use one for the default links. same with mta.
[14:48] treo (~xfman@Daf19.d.pppool.de) joined #rocklinux.
[14:50] <blindcoder> netrunner: well, I have none installed so it only slows down the configuration process
[14:50] <blindcoder> and I said "when it's not necessary" not "because it's unnecessary"
[14:55] <netrunner> that would be a feature I'd vote pro on :)

[20:29] <owl> where to find it?
[20:31] <owl> ah. found it. hm. and something not rock-related?
[20:32] <daja77> tar ...
[20:33] <owl> aehm. package-manager... like in 'installpkg'
[20:34] <blindcoder> owl: so, you want a non-rock related package manager to install rock packages?
[20:35] <owl> blindcoder: no, i won't install rock-packages... 
[20:35] <blindcoder> owl: maybe we can better help you if you actually tell us what you want to do
[20:36] <th> owl: so you need something that "eats" tar.bz2's?
[20:36] <blindcoder> th: /dev/null might help :)
[20:36] <th> blindcoder: that was my thought.
[20:36] <owl> th: yeah. eating like in installing it... better
[20:36] <blindcoder> owl: _what_ do you want to install?
[20:37] <owl> blindcoder: generated  tar bz22 files... or so... 
[20:37] <blindcoder> owl: this might help you: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
[20:37] <blindcoder> owl: so, to my _guesswork_ you want to create .tar.bz2 files from installed packages?
[20:38] <th> owl: where are the tar.bz2's from?
[20:38] <owl> nope. i want to use rock - no, not exactly -rock - tfor creating t.bz2 instead of gem...  and i need something whic installes the files... 
[20:39] <owl> (instead of mien)
[20:39] <owl> mine
[20:39] <blindcoder> ah, new _guess_: you have a source tar.bz2 and want to create a binary tar.bz2 from it?
[20:39] <owl> blindcoder: nah. binary.
[20:39] <blindcoder> that's what I said, binary
[20:39] <th> owl: you can just use tar for it!
[20:40] <blindcoder> th: well, I _think_ she wants something like mkpkg and then use mine to create a binary tar.bz2
[20:40] <owl> th: hmm. it just doesnt have a nice interface... so - >no ... 
[20:40] <blindcoder> but I'd prefer her to ask questions that actually make sense and point to what she actually wants
[20:40] <blindcoder> *sigh*
[20:40] <th> owl: and mine has a nice interface?
[20:40] <blindcoder> okay, I'm out of this "discussion"
[20:41] <owl> th: it's better for a installing system than tar... 
[20:41] <th> owl: how about creating an alias: alias xyz="tar xfvIsp"
