kerframil
mattmatteh: well, try harder
mattmatteh
it works :P
BitOBear
KVM switches (other than the barrel/knob versions) are electronic, they do things like recognize bouncing the shift keys and high end ones will even draw a menu on the screen. Most will also "dummy up" the non-active computers so that they think the keyboard is still there, and they will lock states for caps lock etc. They are way more than simple mechanical devices.
freejack
Quick question...what package do I have to emerge to get libjpeg?
kerframil
freejack: jpeg
mattmatteh
freejack: eix -sc jpeg
freejack: do you specifically need that package ? or are you trying to manage dependencies your self ?
freejack
Heh. That's it. Thought it was hidden away in some package somewhere.
Skunky
freejack: welcome to gentoo.
Azerthoth
mattmatteh, -s is redundant with -c
freejack
Rebuilding this system by hand.
mattmatteh
Azerthoth: thanks :)
freejack: you dont want to emerge dependencies, if you need to use -1 or --oneshot
freejack
(Action) nods
Gotcha
The base system is up and running fine. That part of the tree is sane again.
Now fixing Xorg.
E_Myers
has anyone here had a problem where a gentoo install cant remount a drive in read-write during boot?
mattmatteh
E_Myers: need more info
shiznix
anyone got compiz working using the ebuilds in the portage tree ?
freejack
Grrr....Weird. libX11 fails with "gs: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory "
shiznix
i keep getting 'libyes.so' not found and window decorations disappear, when running 'compiz --replace'
E_Myers
after a fresh install, it starts booting, it mounts the root drive readonly, then it goes to mount it readwrite and fails
shiznix
same problem other users have here -> http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5875694.html
though they solved it by downgrading to 0.8.2 (no longer in the tree)
mattmatteh
E_Myers: umm, i havent see that
E_Myers
mattmatteh; ill play with it more tomorrow... i just wanted to see if it was something simple
Ezro
Yo mattmatteh, should I use default/linux/x86/10.0/server or selinux/2007.0/x86/hardened?
Skunky
Ezro: neither.
Ezro
Hm, why not?
TravisB
Is there any way I can have a VNC server work with my already-running X session, or are they all going to create a new X-session?
Skunky
TravisB: x11vnc is what you need
TravisB
Skunky: Thank you! I'll go and emerge that.
I heard about that, but I wasn't sure if that'd require X to be running on the client end.
Skunky
TravisB: nope, just vncviewer
TravisB
That's great. Thanks. I was looking for a solution for my Android phone; perfect!
latenite
Hi folks, I use xinit -- 1: to get me a second X so I can use kde and gnome both. But what I realy want is: to start gdm on the second X? How can I do that?
jaime
Skunky: clock is fine after reboot. it's quite confusing though that 'hwclock -r' and 'hwclock -r -u' both display local time %) Within the bios it see proper UTC... whatever. it works(tm)
TravisB
Skunky: Works great. Thank you.
Orion_Z
Getting closer now
kernel finished compiling and it went well
hicham
Orion_Z, first gentoo install ?
Orion_Z
hicham, yes
hicham, trying not to fu*k it up
mattmatteh
Orion_Z: language please
hicham
Orion_Z, you won't, just follow the handbook
Orion_Z
fair enough
Ezro
Would anyone be able to help me setup something like dropbox on gentoo, please?
I'm assuming it would be VPN or something along those lines
Not vpn
I'm stupid
SVN
hicham
i don't recommend dropbox on gentoo
Ezro
hicham: I don't mean dropbox, I mean something like dropbox
Where my server holds all my files and stuff
So when I save on my laptop, it automatically saves on my server
E_Myers
like a network share?
Ezro
Not sure what that is.
Ah, I know what you mean
Ya.
E_Myers
so, yor thinking something like an auto-syncing net share?
Ezro
Ya
Slade-
guessed right on the first try!
E_Myers
Slade-: who? me?
Ezro: are all your computers running linux?
Ezro
Nope.
E_Myers
Erzo: you're gonna need samba
coi
?
mattmatteh
Ezro: is this on a trusted network ?
Ezro
No.
mattmatteh
Ezro: or untrusted, like one you dont manage or over the internet
Ezro
Ya, it's over the internet.
mattmatteh
Ezro: you need a vpn
E_Myers
vpn and samba... oh fun
Ezro
Is that what dropbox does?
mattmatteh
Ezro: if the server is linux or unix, you might use nfs. else there is samba, but last time i used that it was a huge pain mounting as user with the passwd
i have not set up a vpn, all i know is you will need one
Ezro
So I would need to setup both VPN and Samba
To have a dropbox like feeling on linux
shiznix
aha...nvm, just had to tick a few boxes in ccsm :D
E_Myers
Ezro: I think so
Ezro
Alright, I'll check those out then
Can only root reboot on linux?
Or did I just not add permissions in or something
david38
there was a howto for that...
Ezro
Ah, I should probably read through the actual Gentoo wiki lol
david38
theres a wide selection of howtos on gentoo.org :) that last question was certainly answered
Ezro
Ah, ty :)
freejack
Shouldn't libX11 be linking against libjpeg.so.8?
The ebuild is looking for libjpeg.so.62
ccherrett
how do I check if my swap is enabled?
nqs
ccherrett: swapon -s or free -mt
ccherrett
nqs: hmm I have no swap enabled
nqs
ccherrett: do you have swap avadiable? check 'fdisk -l' to see
ccherrett
nqs: /dev/sda2 10 507 4000185 82 Linux swap / Solaris
nqs
ccherrett: that work?
ccherrett
nqs: I think I have swap in a raid so I will have to mess with it
swapon fails
nqs
ccherrett: being in raid doesn't matter. can you please pastebin the error?
ccherrett
nqs: swapon: /dev/sda2: swapon failed: Invalid argument
nqs
ccherrett: huh. um... stupid question, do you have paging disabled in the kernel?
ccherrett
nqs: hmm not sure
xemacs4321
mkswap ?
nqs
do 'grep -i swap /usr/scr/linux/.config' and report result
xemacs4321: I thought that too, but wouldnt it swow as the partition being bad, not the command?
xemacs4321
not sure
cant hurt
ccherrett
CONFIG_SWAP=y
david38
unless thats his windows partition with wrong type set :P
xemacs4321
ccherrett, mkswap /dev/sd?, swapon /dev/sd?
ccherrett
xemacs4321: tried that
mkswap reports device busy
nqs
ccherrett: waht about grepping for swap in kernel? what did that show
xemacs4321
wgetpaste /etc/fstab
ccherrett
CONFIG_SWAP=y
Orion_Z
and I have returned...had to restart thanks to a nonsense app problem on XP =/
nqs
ccherrett: wait. pastebin 'swapon -s' and 'free -mt' for us
dark
i can't find my video card driver at make menuconfig (it's i915), what might it be? (i'm using ck-sources-2.6.34)
lsmod shows i915, and also http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/
i found only i810fb
ccherrett
/dev/md1 partition 4000056 0 -1
it was /dev/md1
nqs: xemacs4321: it seems to be up now
thanks guys
xemacs4321
;)
nqs
ccherrett: ok, have fun
dark
also Intel LE80578 (Vermilion) but this seems wrong
ccherrett
will do :)
nqs
(Action) goes back to lurk mode
xemacs4321
ccherrett, md can take a while to mount
ccherrett, cat /proc/mdstat
dark
ah, it's at /dev/agpgart
Ezro
Samba requires X server?
mattmatteh
Ezro: no
Ezro
It says it's going to emerge a bunch of x11 stuff though
mattmatteh
Ezro: mask the x11 lib or xorg-server if you dont want it
Ezro
How do I go about doing that?
mattmatteh
Ezro: /etc/portage/package.mask x11-libs/libX11
then try to emerge again, portage wil fail and whine that it can not have it and tell you what thinks it needs it
Ezro: most likely some use flag somewhere
Ezro
I see..
So I should just install the x11 files
lol
mattmatteh
what ?
why ?
huh
Ezro
Because I don't know how to do that stuff
mattmatteh
you dont know how to edit a text file ?
Ezro
I don't have a package.mask file lol
mattmatteh
when you save the text file you will have it
Ezro
Ah.
I see.
freejack
Alright, fixed it.
Ezro
mattmatteh: I blocked x11, but now it won't let me merge lol
And now I don't know what to do lol
freejack
Alright, how do I set my ethernet card to ignore ARP requests from outside my LAN?
phantomcircuit
damn
portato is sexy
(Action) needs to get out more
freejack
I swear, the ARP requests are killing me in latency.
TJNII
freejack: You should not be receiving ARPs from outside your lan. ARP doesn't route.
akibako
Hi all. Anyone have experience setting up a MoinMoin wiki?
freejack
Hrrmmm. How do I block all ARPs except the ones explicitly from the router/modem?
akibako
I'm getting Apache errors, and my Google-fu is not strong today.
david38
freejack you routers setup might be... exotic, arp from outside doesnt make sense in any network
TJNII
freejack: You can probably do it at the firewall level, but you really don't want to.
arosen
Hello, i'm having this python issue. When I'm using python2.6 I can get this one thing to build but when i use python2.5 the configure tells me that twisted is not installed. Does anyone know whats going on here?
ns5
Building gcc always fails, how can I tell emerge to update world without installing new slot of gcc?
freejack
Using an ATT Uverse cable modem here.
I think what I'm getting are requests from the local switch.
TJNII
Are you actually recieving ARPs from outside your lan? Have you verified the IP ranges with wireshark?
mattmatteh
Ezro: pastebin
freejack
Hrrrrmmm. Checking...just a sec...
Ezro
mattmatteh: http://dpaste.com/201657/
mattmatteh
freejack: you are not behind a nat
?
ns5: what do you mean ?
TJNII
mattmatteh: Let's have him wireshark and get back to us. I think he's trying to hose his network by solving a non-existant problem.
mattmatteh
ns5: that is not setting the new gcc as default is it ?
freejack
Hah. Got it. It's the cable box that's doing it.
Some kinda IPtv crap I think.
ns5
mattmatteh: when I do emerge -DutNav world, emerge always want to install NS gcc-4.4.3-r2, and building it always fails.
freejack
(Action) is using "tcpdump | grep arp"
ns5
mattmatteh: So I want to install other updates without installing new version of gcc.
Lupu
ns5: Then you'd want to mask that version of gcc.
arosen
freejack: I doublt that the arps are really causig you any real problem. ARP requests happen a lot in a network so the clients know who is who when they want to talk. The arp tables get cleared a lot
freejack
Got it. I think, gotta reset my interface.
TJNII
freejack: pastebin the output
mattmatteh
TJNII: yeah, but if he/she were behind a nat, that would really mean something is goofy, else i suppose its possible, maybe dumb
freejack
Be right back.
ns5
Lupu: how to mask it?
TJNII
mattmatteh: Hence why I asked him to verify with a packet sniffer.
mattmatteh
ns5: not sure, that is unstable gcc ?
TJNII
mattmatteh: I wasn't discounting it, just highly doubting it.
ns5
mattmatteh: no, it is stable now. I don't have ~amd64 in my make.conf.
mattmatteh
TJNII: yeah. i havent had to do that in a long time, and forgot how :P
ns5: oh, cant check right now, booted to freebsd
Lupu
ns5: as root 'echo =sys-devel/gcc-4.4.3-r2 >> /etc/portage/package.mask'
mattmatteh
Ezro: emerge samba wants X ?
