Matt|jdub, what about compiling a kernel and building things in, is that worth it?02:19
toyowheelinc-ya02:19
jdubMatt|: no02:19
Matt|jdub, how come?02:20
jdubbecause there's no point02:20
jdubit just means you're not using the distro-supported kernel, that you need to recompile every time you get new hardware, etc., etc.02:20
jdubyou have to manage your own security fixes02:20
Matt|speed?02:21
jdubokay, so02:21
jdubyou would do without all of those things02:21
jdubfor speed?02:21
azeemjdub: are you guys applying any extra low-latency-super-responsive patches to the kernel?02:21
jdubazeem: no02:21
Matt|depends on how much speed i guess jdub02:21
azeemone guy at debian-desktop believed that CDD should patch the kernel to make it desktop-ready02:22
jdubMatt|: seriously - you would forego all of those for 'speed'?02:22
azeemjdub: okie, so it's good enough for anybody else as well =)02:22

Matt|what do you mean by thinking about my computer02:23
PizbitHeh, I find it funny when people argue for speed when they're only gonna save a few seconds over a month or so:)02:24
azeemMatt|: the point is that all the miliseconds you save each time on startup will get eaten up once you need to recompile your kernel for whatever reason02:24
Matt|azeem, i appreciate that02:24
Matt|i was just asking02:24
Matt|i have just been used to recompiling my kernel and building things in02:25

Matt|azeem, are you talking to me?02:25

paulproteusblackdog: Set 'noauto'.02:25
paulproteusAnd then mount it as your Ubuntu user.02:26

Matt|azeem, i installed ubuntu for the first time last night02:26
paulproteusThere's one option for you.02:26

azeemMatt|: hmm, ok02:26
pocolocococoumask-002:26
Matt|i have no competence with computers02:26
paulproteusblackdog: The other option is to add this option to the options list: uid=100002:26
pocolocococodoh02:26
Matt|otherwise I wouldn't have been asking dumb questions02:26
azeemMatt|: in that case, I advise you to just use your system for a couple of days and then reevaluate whether you really need more speed02:27
pocolocococoumask=002:27
paulproteusuid=1000 will make the first user (user IDs start at 1000) own all the files.02:27
paulproteusumask=0 means any other you drop all security restrictions on the partition.  The "umask" parameter says what permissions to limit, so by setting it to zero you allow everyone everything.02:27
Matt|azeem, i had not made any evaluations. I repeat, i was simply curious02:28

bborkkWell, apt-get upgrade keeps warning me that I have duplicate entries, one of them being the ubuntu universe entry.  I tried updating, but that just warns me that it can't stat the source list for mentors.debian.org and doesn't fix the duplicate entry problem.06:31
cef_workmdz: there isn't a /proc/scsi as such. there is /proc/scsi/scsi, which lists the 3ware card, device-info (with nothing worthwhile in it), and a sata_sil direcrtory06:32

ficusplanetjustdave, If a package is installed, it will in Synaptic.  But if you want non-installed packages to show up, yes, you need a repository.08:19
jdubjustdave: the latter.08:19
justdavepackage in question is missing from universe, but the source is there.  has a co-dependency on one that is built in universe.  Installing either one without passing both of them to apt-get install at once will fail.08:20

justdavethere's a command-line option for apt-get to download a deb... where's it download to when you do that?  current directory?08:22

xfyeah, but debian's 2 year cycles makes it a rather changing target for colo'ed servers12:50
xfone second you've got reasonably up to date software, the next second you're backporting, the next you're swearing because things are so horribly outdated12:51

xfgpl'ed reincarnation of the cobalt boxes. new distro, new web interface, etc12:52
xfi've been hacking on it for god knows how long now, but one of the biggest reasons i've delayed releasing it is due to debian's policies12:52

xfyes, exactly12:54
xfi'm just curious what the focus is on ubuntu's packages12:54

whiprushcobalts are cool, wish I had one, sounds like fun.12:54
xfand i'm only at the scale of a few dozen of my own servers12:54
xfsee, i'd like to know i can upgrade to the latest ubuntu packages /without/ things breaking12:55
merriamazeem: nfs-user-server is one way to do it12:55
xfand if they do, things are kept to be very minimal, and they're predictable12:55
whiprushwell hard to tell, since it's only the first release, heh.12:55
Gmailxf: most of ubuntu's package are from testing(/sid?) of debian12:55
xfi.e. if version 4.56.32 comes out, other distros might instantly package it up and release it. that minor version upgrade might /slightly/ break some configs. when you're talkign web interfaces and users that don't know jack, that's a problem12:55

xf_i thought it ran in winex?02:03
danielsxf_: nope, any good?02:04
danielsmjr: you are venturing into uncertain territory here, I believe02:05
xf_daniels: it's brilliant. free shipping, comes with a mix cd02:05
danielsxf_: nice!02:05
xf_and the mix cd is arguably better then the dvd02:05
xf_dvd is most of warp's videos from when they first started02:05
xf_35 or so, i think02:05
mjrdaniels, well, I did do some (painful) searches from the dri pages and mail archives and ended up with an impression that it wasn't too uncertain02:06
danielsxf_: wow02:06
xf_what sort of fps do you get on your ati w/open sourced drivers in say, ut or quake3?02:06
xf_i'm assuming things like ut2004/doom3 don't work, or do they?02:07
Sensebendxf_, I use the closed source drivers, those are a bit weird to get working sometimes though02:08
xf_my previous experiences with them is that they're horribly unstable02:08
danielsxf_: unsure, sorry02:09
xf_and i've heard that things haven't really changed recently02:09
danielsxf_: ut2004 may work, but you'd need the s3tc patch02:09
SensebendThe old UT works :)02:09
Sensebendand that was the most fun of all of them02:09
xf_haven't played the old ut in ages, loved that game02:09
xf_heh, i sign up my otherwise unused gmail account to debian-amd6402:09
xf_post a few times02:10
xf_already have loads of spam02:10
mjrmy experience with radeon dri drivers so far is that they run NWN playably with in 800x600 with most of the frills disabled on my laptop's 7500, and crash every once in a while02:10
=== Sensebend wanders off to school
xf_yeah, see, for me, i'll still use windows for games02:11
xf_you can't multitask when you play games, so it's not a huge concern dual booting for me at the moment02:11
=== GuBA [Gustavo@208.19.66.238] has joined #ubuntu
xf_in the case of an application where i do multitask, it's far more important02:11
mjryou _can't_?02:11
mjror should I say02:12
mjr_you_ can't?02:12
mjr:)02:12
Sensebendlol02:12
xf_that's why i have multiple computers/monitors :-p02:12
hypn0can someone give a link to package directories, and updates plz02:12
mjryes, I have dual-head too ;)02:12
xf_i mean in the sense that when you run a game on a machine, you typically aren't doing anything else interactive with the machine at the same time02:12
mjrbut I'll just see how it goes with the 9250, I'm no big gamer so it's not critical for me02:12
xf_and if you are, you're sucking precious cpu cycles away from the game02:13
mjrirc doesn't suck too many cycles ;)02:13
xf_heh02:13
xf_that's why you play something like eq, where it's like irc anyway :-p02:13
jonoso with the ati driver, do you basically run a program that compiles a kernel module on the fly and insmods it?02:13

mjrwhen I want to play NWN, I do that on my gf's box, which has a whopping TNT2 ultra02:15

Gmailbob2: install xchat-text and you will see what i mean03:38
Hmmmwas wondering if someone had some good repositories for apt03:38
bob2Hmmm: what do you want that isn't in universe?03:38
StarScreamTheCan: you can get KDE for ubuntu? where from?03:38
Gmailanyone which used xchat-text in a channel wound apt-get remove it in like a few ms03:38
danielsGmail: i think the point bob's making is that this would force people using non-X machines to install xlibs if they wanted xchat-text03:38
TheCanStarScream, from universe?03:39
RiddellStarScream: from universe (KDE 3.2) or my pacakges (some 3.3)03:39
Gmaildaniels: no one want xchat-text03:39
danielsGmail: if the xchat developers improve xchat-text in future, you'll need to re-split it, which would suck03:39
bob2Gmail: so why don't you just disable the build?03:39
Gmaildaniels: the xchat devel made xhat-text werst03:39
danielsGmail: there's just no need to merge them into one package -- which is forcing it upon people who don't want it, like you -- as it also creates unnecessary derivation from debian03:39
danielswhich is harder to repair03:39
danielsGmail: what's to say that no-one will ever make it better?03:39

Gmaildaniels: goto #xchat and fight with them to contue xchat-tezt if you want it03:40
Hmmmthanks bob203:40
danielsGmail: no thanks, I'm not really interested.  but as far as I can tell, there's no reason to have them in the same package -- which forces *you* to have it installed, and creates unnecessary derivation from Debian -- only downsides03:41
bob2Gmail: it has nothing to do with xchat, I'm just wondering why you don't disable the build entirely if you don't want it03:41
TheCanso anyone else having the "ugly kde fonts" problem?03:41
Gmailits discontue as it own package for quite awhile and xchat-text 2 is even better than xchat-text 2.4 no really it a lot more user friendly i used both03:41
jindWhat's the newest kde packages for warthy?03:41
jindI find both kde 3.1 and kde 3.2?03:41
Gmailbob2: because xchat need xchat-text for some reason even thou it doesnt use it03:41
bob2Gmail: it doesn't use it? at all? are you sure?03:42
Gmailbob2: ask #xchat why does xchat-common enclude xchat-text03:42
bob2Gmail: erm, that has nothing to do with xchat's authors03:42
danielsdaniels@nanasawa:~/music/James Lavelle/Global Underground 26 - Romania/CD2 - The Beast% apt-cache show xchat-common | grep xchat-text03:43
danielsRecommends: xchat | xchat-text03:43
daniels xchat-gnome, or xchat-text.03:43
danielsok, so afaict it's saying that you really, really should have either xchat, or xchat-text installed; and xchat being preferred03:43
Gmailxchat-common encludes xchat-text so there is no need for 2 packages but the xchat-text includes a few thing like a binary in /usr/bin03:43
