DC
Just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a netboot cd for slackware
i know there is one i've used it before but i cant rmemeber where i found it
hcfd
Hmm. I'm looking on the ftp myself and I found the etherboot images but I don't think that's it
DC
i've definatly had one before
i just cant think where i found it
alienBOB
Netboot CD?
DC
yup
alienBOB
NEtboot does not need a CD.. it needs a PXE server
You mean "netinstall"?
cteg
he is thinking of it like those debian netboot cd's. just a few base packages
yeah netinstall. thats it
DC
indeed

cteg
you have scripts for everything, don't you
:)
hcfd
alienBOB, nice work sir.
cteg
even iso's, wow
DC
well done bob thanks :)
hcfd
Strong.
DC
cteg we have moved from the 90's ;)
cteg
i meant alienBOB and his scripts especially ;)
john_dee
alienBOB: hey. is there any progress with slackware live cd? or it's no on top of the priority list?
cteg
was just thinking about multilib...need wine
hcfd
alienBOB, I just found your USB installer. That is particularly nice. Wow :)
cteg
hrm this is not exactly a netinstaller, or what i expect as a netinstaller. its an installer without any packages
or do i miss something
i thought of it as very small mix of /a and /l to set up a connection, have a little editor, and grab packages from mirrors
this should be easy to do anyway from a slackware tree

anyone know a way to simulate a mouse wheel with a keyboard? I don't use the num pad
(I want to scroll in vim without changing the cursor position)
mohaa ^^

rg31: hahaha, I had completely forgotten about that, thanks ^^
I'm used to my laptop with the touchpad right beneath the keyboard but I bought a new keyboard and now the mouse or touchpad are much less accessible :-)
merry_Xmas
hey Camarade_Tux
ça va gros ?
Camarade_Tux
ouais, et toi ma poule ?
heaumer
haha, ça parle français même ici §
Camarade_Tux
heaumer: :-)
hmmmm, kimsufi :-)
heaumer: what are you using your kimsufi box for btw?
         

heaumer
Camarade_Tux: hm, many little things (git|hg, mail, web, irc) etc.
Camarade_Tux
heaumer: wouldn't a shared web hosting with ssh access have been enough? or do you use lots of resources?
nachox
morning everyone
NaCl
morning
heaumer
not that much, but, it's hard to find something that let you do anything you want
BP{k}
linode ;-)
heaumer
for instance, finding php offers is pretty easy, but, if you want to do web with perl or lisp :-'
Camarade_Tux
BP{k}: linode's not in france ;-)
heaumer: yeah, I'd like to try a webserver in ocaml =/
and it can't be used with cgi yet
BP{k}
Camarade_Tux: meh. it's in the UK :)
Camarade_Tux
he, they've been accessible for two weeks :P
BP{k}: what have you been using linode for?
BP{k}
Camarade_Tux: nothing as much as hosting some files, some friends have user accounts there for irc/shells etc. Gonna overhaul it when I sober up in the new year and do somestuff with it, like git, mail
Camarade_Tux: was your cgi comment regarding linode or 'webserver in ocaml'?
Camarade_Tux
webserver in ocaml
but ocaml is very good for server: you basically can't have a segfault in ocaml, it prevents a lot of programming mistakes too, plus it doesn't leak memory
heaumer
furthermore, it's french
:p
Camarade_Tux
hehe :P
heaumer: know ocaml?
heaumer
yes
but I don't use it pretty often (I'd rather use haskell)
Camarade_Tux
die die die! :P
:-)
heaumer
no you! :)
Camarade_Tux
hahaha :P
(Action) puts a side-effect into heaumer's haskell code

hi, I am getting this: configure: error: Install tetex before enabling latex thumbnailing when trying to install thunar-thumbnailers-0.4.1 in XFCE. Any idea why? tetex is installed.
heaumer
(Action) invoke some dark Monad
+s
alreadygone
everything from slackware/t directory is installed
i'm using Slackware 13 x86
Camarade_Tux
alreadygone: pastebin your config.log (it's created by configure)
alreadygone
ok
Camarade_Tux
(Action) throws a functor at heaumer
heaumer
:D
Camarade_Tux
and I'm being nice, I could use the 'o' in "ocaml" ;p
alreadygone
Camarade_Tux, http://pastebin.com/d43374158
Camarade_Tux
alreadygone: when have you installed latex? right now or did you have it before?
alreadygone
after I received the error
Camarade_Tux
alreadygone: ok, log out, then log in again and try again, something needs to be updated
alreadygone
just log out or restart?
Camarade_Tux
log out, actually, you can also, just log in again and try there
alreadygone
i can restart
thanks let me try
Camarade_Tux, same error!
Camarade_Tux
alreadygone: if you type "latex" in your shell, does it work?
alreadygone
nope
installpkg's 2nd last line is:
checking for latex... no
last line:
configure: error: Install tetex before enabling latex thumbnailing
Camarade_Tux
do you have this file: /etc/profile.d/tetex.sh ?
alreadygone
yes
Camarade_Tux
does your $PATH contain /usr/share/texmf/bin?
NaCl
alreadygone: check config.log
Oh.
BP{k}
alreadygone: how did you switch to the root account? using "su"/"su -" or ?
thrice`
try: "source /etc/profile.d/tetex.sh" and try again
alreadygone
su
just su
NaCl
(Action) sees that Camarade_Tux already found it
Camarade_Tux
:D
BP{k}
alreadygone: log out and use "su -", that's your problem.
alreadygone
:) let me try
it's working now!
thanks a lot guys.
Camarade_Tux
\o/
alreadygone
\o/ but point me to a page or tell me what search string should I use to read about this su - thing
su - and su
BP{k}
alreadygone: su(1)
alreadygone
ok :)
"su -" gives you root's environment also---just as if you had logged in as root. so I should always install things using su -
right
monstro
Is it possible to pass a blank username with lynx. The authentication i am looking to do is to a linksys router with now username and only a password.
Camarade_Tux

The-Croupier

alreadygone
greetings The-Croupier
The-Croupier
alreadygone: hi
hows things around here?
alreadygone
Camarade_Tux, when I logged in as su - I can see directories and files in colors. In normal user I don't see colors. How do I enable that?

Camarade_Tux

The-Croupier
Camarade_Tux: nice not bad.. slept for 13 hours straight...

Camarade_Tux
xterm :D
alreadygone: http://www.slackwiki.org/Login_Shell#XFCE_4.4_Terminal
alreadygone
thank you Camarade_Tux
NaCl
just add -ls to the shell command
The-Croupier
(Action) loves rxvt, xterm,aterm,eterm, ... any term
NaCl
I had to do that to get konsole to cooperate
Camarade_Tux: I had to modify wicd-curses to support the default settings in xterm. :/
Camarade_Tux
NaCl: Terminal and gnome's are different
NaCl
Camarade_Tux: I know.
Camarade_Tux
NaCl: bah, I switched to iwconfig + dhcpcd for my wireless ;p
NaCl
Whatever works for you. :P
Camarade_Tux
yup :è)

yey for having to go to work today!

(Action) has been slacking for almost a week
Pig_Pen
i hope things are back to normal in here
no more netsplits every few minutes, no more psychos DDosing
The-Croupier
Pig_Pen: have things ever been normal in here?!
Pig_Pen
never
The-Croupier
psychos DDosing?!
netsplits?!
Trolls?!
Camarade_Tux
The-Croupier: netsplits every few minutes for a week
icarus_
Is it the IRC connection itself ? 'Cause I'm somewhere else than usual and I was just wondering whether the connection is bust or what
agentc0re
Psychos, netsplits and trolls! OH MY!!
Pig_Pen
i have a feeling were not in Kansas anymore
The-Croupier
nope we are in slackware
;)
Pig_Pen
i sure like my SDR
The-Croupier
thats where all the fun is, thats where the news gets created, :p stay around and be part of the news. ;) be part of history ;)
Pig_Pen: sdr?!

The-Croupier
Pig_Pen: thanks
Pig_Pen
it is a tad bit noisy on HF but i think i can take care of that with either a passive preselector or a smaller antenna, i have a 66 foot long wire outside
icarus_
(Action) wonders who in the world would want a radio
The-Croupier
so you need a modem as well ;)
Pig_Pen: how far can you transmit with such a thing ?
Pig_Pen
no, this is an older model i bought on clearence for 2 hundred, it runs with a serial port, but the newer models are USB (some are firewire)
it is just a receiver, but Flex Radio has SDRs that are TX but they are about 5 to 10 thounsand bucks!
icarus_
Take Christmas as an example. Radios play all sorts of modern "artists" doing modern "interpretations" (which are crap, btw) of classics. Who can beat Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong etc ?
The-Croupier
icarus_ is that a rhetorical question?
i feel bad answering ....
Camarade_Tux
icarus_: Rage Against The Machine! ;p
icarus_
The-Croupier: If you represent the people I don't get and take a different view then no, it's not really meant to be rhetorical. Please do answer :P
Camarade_Tux
http://www.npr.org/blogs/monitormix/2009/12/rage_against_the_machine_ragea.html
The-Croupier
icarus_ so you are saying that i can answer only if i agree with you ... otherwise no ;)
icarus_
I'm not saying all modern music sucks. There's many groups making new songs which are great, sure. I just don't see the need to listen to radio stations as it feels as if they either play too much crap or cut the few good songs short so I can listen to some crappy commercial.
nachox
what do you guys use to clean laptop keyboards?
icarus_
The-Croupier: no, quite the opposite, really. I'd love to hear the opposite view ;)
The-Croupier
nachox: there are sprays sold in shops ;)
Pig_Pen
http://imagebin.org/76764
Camarade_Tux
nachox: I remove all keys and use my fingers and maybe a tissue
The-Croupier
icarus_: i do like old classics as well, there are a lot of things good in radio these days, on the other hand, radios are not only for music .. they are there to searve a purpose
icarus_
nachox: I've heard of people showering with their keyboards. But I have no idea whether that's a good idea ;) I guess the big difference in approach is based on whether you use a mechanical switch keyboard (read: you're awesome), or a membrane-based keyboard.
The-Croupier
imagine there are a lot of people who hate computers, even tv ;)
