[11:54] <blindcoder> stf^rocklinux, th: there seems to be something wrong with the 7663 livecd

[20:25] <brian|lfs> hey can I use rocklinux to make my own linux distro?
[20:25] <blindcoder> that's exactly the purpose of ROCK
[20:25] <brian|lfs> I was jsut checking
[20:25] <brian|lfs> I'm downlaoding the rock distro crystal binary right now
[20:26] <brian|lfs> is it any good it says expermential
[20:27] <blindcoder> we're about to feature freeze for a release
[20:27] <blindcoder> that's why it's labeled experimental
[20:27] <brian|lfs> cool whats freeze do
[20:27] <brian|lfs> is crystal a code name for freeze or soemthing?
[20:27] <blindcoder> so no, it's not any good, it crashes on boot, won't install, make your cat pregnant and annoy your neighbour :)
[20:27] <blindcoder> say, you did read www.rocklinux.org, now did you?
[20:29] <brian|lfs> it jsut says its a distribution that can be used for a server or desktop
[20:29] <brian|lfs> and solve one problem
[20:29] <blindcoder> so there you have it, crystal is a distribution
[20:29] <brian|lfs> not sure what the wrong problem is lol
[20:30] <brian|lfs> could be anything
[20:30] <blindcoder> what's so funny?
[20:30] <brian|lfs> whats the one problem its trying to solve
[20:30] <blindcoder> it's not "a problem" it's trying to solve
[20:31] <blindcoder> it brings one solution per problem
[20:31] <brian|lfs> oh
[20:31] <blindcoder> that means: one desktop environment, one database, one webserver, etc.
[20:31] <blindcoder> as stated on the site
[20:31] <brian|lfs> ever use LFS?
[20:32] <blindcoder> no
[20:32] <brian|lfs> its pretty good
[20:32] <blindcoder> without doubt
[20:32] <brian|lfs> it would be a job to make it a distro that you can distribute easyily to the world
[20:33] <th> rock is pretty much doing this/
[20:33] <blindcoder> as I see it that's also not the job lfs is trying to do
[20:33] <brian|lfs> no it isn't really
[20:33] <brian|lfs> they do have a clfs to help with that but not sure how much it would help
[20:34] <brian|lfs> is crystal a distro made from rock?
[20:35] <blindcoder> yes
[20:36] <brian|lfs> ok probably not a bad palce to start install crystal and see what I like and don't like about it
[20:37] <blindcoder> just remember that crystal is not the product we "sell" here
[20:37] <brian|lfs> ya I understand what your saying
[20:38] <brian|lfs> your selling rock to build stuff like crystal
[20:38] <brian|lfs> will your not sellign anything its free
[20:39] <blindcoder> yes, just trying to clear it up
[20:39] <blindcoder> because I've learned from experience that many people don't really get it
[20:39] <brian|lfs> I wouldn't doubt that one bit
[20:40] <brian|lfs> you all should call it rocknetframework lol
[20:40] <esden> blindcoder: ... how is the current policy in submitting a new package to rock?
[20:40] <esden> s/how/what/
[20:41] <blindcoder> esden: submit it to your repository and you're fine
[20:42] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: the naming thing has been discussed ad infinitum and ad absurdum
[20:42] <esden> blindcoder: through submaster ... right?
[20:42] <blindcoder> esden: yes
[20:42] <esden> blindcoder: urgh ... *sigh* ... well ... ok ;)
[20:42] <blindcoder> esden: http://www.shellscripts.org/project/rockcommitpatch
[20:43] <blindcoder> esden: and stop complaining. we haven't officially gotten rid of clifford yet :)
[20:43] <brian|lfs> how many distros have been made from rock?
[20:43] <esden> blindcoder: ROFL!
[20:43] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: public ones, two
[20:43] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: non-public: several
[20:43] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: I myself have one non-public
[20:44] <brian|lfs> I want mine to be public after my feinds and IO work the kinks out
[20:45] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: that'd be fine, we might even host it in the rock trunk, though that'll be seen at the time
[20:45] <brian|lfs> its only day 2 last night my friend and I were talking about making our own distro
[20:45] <esden> ok ... I jump home finally ... and try to add sbcl to rock ... 
[20:46] <blindcoder> esden: good luck :)
[20:46] <blindcoder> brian|lfs: you really should sit down and discuss what kind of distribution you want to make first
[20:46] <esden> that will be a nice bootstrap problem ;)
[20:46] <brian|lfs> I agree with you there
[20:46] <brian|lfs> he is apperanly busy my friend right now
[20:48] <stf^rocklinux> brian|lfs: hi! btw. I've incorporated bugfix patches from lfs into ROCK at least once or twice.
[20:48] <stf^rocklinux> lfs is one of my primary sources when I look for bugfixes.
[20:49] <brian|lfs> that makes sense LFS is source
[20:49] <brian|lfs> code
[20:49] <stf^rocklinux> and instructions on how to build it :)
[20:49] <brian|lfs> hmm his not afk right now but hes not ansering either myf riend lol
[20:49] <brian|lfs> exactly
[20:50] <brian|lfs> took me like 5 tries to build lfs but after I built in nce I built it twice with no prob
[20:50] <brian|lfs> Ran it as a server for months
[20:51] <brian|lfs> had a bumass friend change the root password to 123456 and it got hacked pretty good lol
[20:51] <brian|lfs> and that hard drive that held the os started dieing at the same time
[20:52] <brian|lfs> so I reformated it and installed Lineox and it worked good so then I got a new hard drive and copied it to the new drive and its still running

[20:56] <brian|lfs> hey how you doing man
[20:56] <Symph0ny> hey brian
[20:56] <stf^rocklinux> hi
[20:56] <brian|lfs> this is my friend everyone
[20:56] <Symph0ny> hehe, yeah
[20:56] <brian|lfs> we were both talking last night about makin g our own distro
[20:56] <brian|lfs> wow if I could type today
[20:56] <brian|lfs> ouch
[20:57] <brian|lfs> Like I was telling you Symph0ny I just download crystal rock
[20:57] <brian|lfs> and am going to burn it
[20:57] <stf^rocklinux> well, I've never really tried building an fls system myself, only read about it, but afaics some concepts are quite similar, e.g. the staged builds and using a chroot environment.
[20:58] <brian|lfs> I've tried to get Symph0ny to try lfs in the past lol
[20:58] <Symph0ny> lol
[20:58] <brian|lfs> he hasn't gotten around to it lol
[20:59] <brian|lfs> no point if were going to make our own distro lol
[20:59] <stf^rocklinux> put another way, I think understanding lfs helps to understand how ROCK does things
[21:00] <brian|lfs> ya understanding it definitly will help out I agree
[21:01] <brian|lfs> you need to know what order to compile things in or are gogoing to ahve probs
[21:01] <Symph0ny> what distro should I use to have a simple base?
[21:02] <Symph0ny> I need to build a root partition for my server that I picked up... it already boots linux 2.4, but I dont know the root password on the base system, and I can't boot from anything but the hd
[21:04] <brian|lfs> that could be a prob
[21:05] <Symph0ny> you know how you can specify a root partition at a lilo prompt though?
[21:05] <Symph0ny> you can pass the root partition as a boot parameter, so I could potentially use a root partition from another drive
[21:05] <blindcoder> or just specify init=/bin/bash rw
[21:05] <blindcoder> then set a root password
[21:05] <blindcoder> reboot, and you're done
[21:06] <brian|lfs> wow thats secure
[21:06] <Symph0ny> cool, I'll try that
[21:06] <Symph0ny> lol
[21:06] <brian|lfs> damm
[21:07] <stf^rocklinux> Symph0ny: there's the Crystal distro, which is a complete desktop distro with KDE, and build-bootstrap (bbs) which only includes tools needed to build your own distro with ROCK.

[21:48] <th> :w for saving

[21:51] <brian|lfs> what does dG do
[21:51] <mnemoc> deletes until the end of the file
[21:51] <brian|lfs> cool
[21:51] <stf^rocklinux> dd deletes a single line
[21:52] <brian|lfs> how do I get a list of commands when in vi
[21:52] <brian|lfs> if I forget all this
[21:52] <mnemoc> man vi ?
[21:52] <mnemoc> :h ?
[21:52] <stf^rocklinux> in vi, use :h
[21:52] <brian|lfs> ok
[21:52] <stf^rocklinux> and :q to exit help
[21:53] <brian|lfs> I was very confused how crystal pic up my drvies
[21:53] <brian|lfs> it had them in a weird from that grub don't recognize
[21:53] <brian|lfs> it had it in a long path with part3 at the end
[21:56] <stf^rocklinux> you mean something like /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 ?
[21:58] <stf^rocklinux> as long as the installer does recognize your drives, it doesn't matter whether it accesses them via /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 or e.g. /dev/hda3, it's all the same...
[21:59] <brian|lfs> hmm wil it nevr isntalled grub it failed and said unrecognized
[22:00] <brian|lfs> ya I mean something like /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3
[22:02] <brian|lfs> wierd the : stuff don't work in the windows vi
[22:02] <stf^rocklinux> hm, please give the exact error message, if possible, this way it's easier to figure out what went wrong.
[22:04] <stf^rocklinux> btw. which iso are you using? crystal-th20060624.iso?
[22:04] <brian|lfs> ya that one
[22:06] <stf^rocklinux> maybe you can also check if the appropriate modules for your hard disk are loaded, and if it is properly detected when booting from CD.
[22:06] <brian|lfs> ya I'm going to try the isntall again
[22:07] <stf^rocklinux> e.g. on my hardware I get the kernel boot message:
[22:07] <stf^rocklinux> Probing IDE interface ide1...

[22:07] <brian|lfs> why isn't the : stuff workign I"m looking tin the windows vi manual and it shows those commands
[22:08] <stf^rocklinux> no idea.. does anything happen when you type e.g. :w
[22:08] <stf^rocklinux> ?
[22:09] <brian|lfs> just tried it on a linux box it worked
[22:09] <brian|lfs> nope

[23:48] <stf^rocklinux> no, con is a "device file" in dos (and windows) it's somewhat of the equivalent of /dev/console
[23:48] <stf^rocklinux> and apparently even in win xp, no regular files named con* must exist rofl
[23:49] ringo (n=info@ip51cf58c9.direct-adsl.nl) joined #rocklinux.
[23:49] <stf^rocklinux> hence svn cannot create a file named con.patch on an win partition.
[23:50] <stf^rocklinux> (under windows, that is)
[23:55] <esden> that is hilarous ... I have heard about that behaviour some time ago ... I think there is something similar with files named "lpt"?
[23:55] <esden> or similar?
[23:55] <stf^rocklinux> I even sent a patch to SubMaster so that I could checkout ROCK trunk under windows...
[23:55] <stf^rocklinux> yeah, iirc lpt refers to the printer device
[23:57] <stf^rocklinux> I wonder what the ones working at tech support tell people when they try to create con.* files ^^
