08:13 -!- rbr7vld [~email@example.com] has joined #mandrake
08:13 < rbr7vld> help me i need
08:13 < rbr7vld> gcc that will
08:13 < rbr7vld> work for linux
08:13 < rbr7vld> a .rpm
08:13 < traveller> rbr7vld: urpmi gcc ???
08:13 < rbr7vld> gcc
08:13 < rbr7vld> look
08:14 < stew_b> traveller: someapp &, last entry should be the window manager (ie startxfce4)
08:14 < fragspaz> whats the command for deleting a file
08:14 < traveller> may i ask what's the & for?
08:14 < stew_b> traveller: you can have as many someapps as you want
08:14 < traveller> fragspaz: rm filename
08:14 < fragspaz> thx
08:15 < stew_b> traveller: to background it, so the next line will run
08:15 < traveller> so if it doesn't background it will not advance to next line? nasty...
08:16 < rbr7vld> checking for gcc... no
08:16 < rbr7vld> checking for cc... no
08:16 < rbr7vld> checking for cc... no
08:16 < rbr7vld> checking for cl... no
08:16 < rbr7vld> configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
08:16 < stew_b> well, it will when that app exits, which is probably not what you want
08:16 < traveller> i see
08:16 < rbr7vld> can yall help me
08:17 < rbr7vld> ?
08:17 < traveller> ok this not really a mdk question, but does fluxbox support ctrl-c/x/v copy/cut/paste ??
08:17 < stew_b> rbr7vld: did you 'urpmi gcc' as suggested?
08:18 < rbr7vld> what you mean
08:18 < rbr7vld> ??
08:18 < Roobarb-AMD64> rbr7vld: as root do: urpmi gcc
08:18 < Roobarb-AMD64> then feed it cds
08:18 < traveller> rbr7vld: "urpmi gcc" installs the gcc (the c compiler)
08:22 < rbr7vld> urpmi gcc
08:22 < rbr7vld> linux:/home/rbr7vld # urpmi gcc
08:22 < rbr7vld> bash: urpmi: command not found
08:22 < rbr7vld> linux:/home/rbr7vld #
08:23 < traveller> uh....dazed me..
08:24 < rbr7vld> can anyone help
08:24 < stew_b> rbr7vld: try following the help given :P
08:25 < rbr7vld> i did
08:25 < stew_b> rbr7vld: is this a mandrake system?
08:26 < rbr7vld> nop
08:26 < rbr7vld> SuSe 9,1
08:26 < stew_b> doh!, then the help you'll get here won't be real useful :)
08:26 * traveller experiences enlightenment
08:26 < traveller> that's why no urpmi
08:26 < YankDownUnder> I don't think urpmi has been ported to SuSe yet...
08:27 < rbr7vld> mm
08:28 < _darren> http://freshmeat.net/projects/urpmi/
08:29 < stew_b> rbr7vld: you'd probably get more relevent answers in a suse channel
08:29 < _darren> course suse has yast to install the software for you
08:29 < rbr7vld> ok
NB: translation: A Moment of Chaos, a blonde moment, wait a minute wtf are all three of these guys retarded or what I mean really. PS: I hope traveller edits the
correct file instead of constantly typing out the command.
01:27 < swimingly> anyone know how to set up XWine, and Wine?
01:33 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Winehq.org or join #WineHQ
01:34 <@Hawkwind> the-erm: http://linuxfordummies.org/index.cgi/IRC_20Etiquette Read that URL for us please :)
01:34 < swimingly> ok thx
01:34 < dewey> hi Hawkwind
01:35 <@Hawkwind> Hey there dewey
01:35 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Also when you untar the source for wine, there is definately a README file you should read
01:35 < kreoxie_> isn't there always
01:35 < kreoxie_> heh
01:36 < swimingly> Hawkind I installed it with mandrake install tool...
01:36 < kreoxie_> i thought you were supposed to rm -rf the 'README'
01:36 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: That is going to cause problems
01:36 < swimingly> Hawkind its from official mandrake
01:36 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Wine is best installed from the tar.gz file. Using urpmi or an rpm of wine usually does NOT run very well
01:37 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Just a word of advice but you will more than likely have problems using wine installed that way.
01:37 < swimingly> ok, Ill remove it and install the other way, but how about Xwine should I remove that and install it with a tar as well?
01:38 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Are you referring to WineX ?
01:39 <@Hawkwind> I don't use any of them to be honest. I left/dropped windows for a reason and choose to not have anything to do with them at all anymore.
Xwine I'm not familiar with at all. Wine and WineX(you have to pay for, or there is a free cvs version) just seem to run best when
installed from a .tar.gz file
01:39 < swimingly> Hawkind it is called xwine in the mandrake packaage install utility
01:40 < swimingly> yeah I wouldnt use it either, but I just want to convert a wpd file...
01:40 <@Hawkwind> swimingly: Again, I don't use the mandrake package wizard either. I do all my stuff via a terminal using urpmi which is much more effective
NB: translation: So the ops don't even use their own distros tool because they know it sucks ass, hmm interesting oh yeah gotta love him pluggin his site.
Proof that mandrake is the piece of shit we all know it to be
18:12 -!- kevin_ [~firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #mandrake
18:12 < kevin_> hello
18:12 < kevin_> anyone home?
18:12 <@Hawkwind> We are either at home or at work :)
18:12 < kevin_> oic
18:13 < kevin_> cool, does anyone know where I could download installation disk 4
18:13 < kevin_> for mandrake 10
18:14 < kevin_> I guess you need installation disks to urpmi stuff?!?
18:14 < HauntedUnix> Morning Jillicious, again :P
18:14 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: you can use web sources for urpmi.
18:14 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: they're availble from http://www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi
18:14 < kevin_> I know, I set it up that way, but if I try to install libdvdnav0
18:14 < kevin_> it asks for disk 4
18:15 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: disk 4 is only avalible to club members, I suggest you urpmi.removemedia -a, and then use the avalible sources from
18:15 < kevin_> oic
18:16 < kevin_> apt was easier, but I'm giving urpmi an honest chance
18:16 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: it's the same, as long as you setup the urpmi sources.
18:16 < Woody> kevin_: easy is usually what you know/knew first or the best
18:16 < kevin_> just switched from debian, just to see
18:16 <@Hawkwind> apt was only easier because you were used to it. Once you get used to urpmi you will say the same. You will also see how it handles
dependencies better than apt does
18:16 < HauntedUnix> Urpmi should eventually prompt you to setup web sources on install.
18:17 < kevin_> true
HauntedUnix> www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi, setup contrib especially.
18:19 < kevin_> after removing the sources you just install new ones right?
18:19 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: yeah, just using easyurpmi's web sources.
18:19 < kevin_> ok
18:20 < kevin_> so don't add contrib?
18:21 < HauntedUnix> .. do add it.
18:21 < kevin_> ok
18:21 < HauntedUnix> add all four
18:21 < kevin_> and external and other sources?
18:22 < kevin_> this must sound dumb
18:22 < kevin_> just with deb everything was off the web
18:22 < HauntedUnix> kevin_: Main, contrib, updates, plf.
18:22 < kevin_> but not jpackage?
18:23 < HauntedUnix> What?
18:23 < kevin_> under other sources
18:23 < HauntedUnix> woah
18:23 < HauntedUnix> never seen that before
18:30 < kevin_> me thinks I'm going back to debian
18:30 < kevin_> none of these sources work
18:32 < kevin_> ...retrieving failed: curl: (9) Couldn't cd to pub
18:32 < kevin_> retrieval of source hdlist (or synthesis) failed
18:32 < kevin_> no hdlist file found for medium "plf"
18:32 < kevin_> examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.plf.cz]
18:32 < kevin_> problem reading synthesis file of medium "plf"
18:32 < kevin_> unable to update medium "plf"
18:32 < kevin_> and it's like that for all of them
18:32 <@breser> kevin_: Well PLF sources don't suprise me. The vast majority of stuff on PLF isn't entirely legal.
18:33 <@breser> So there are usually very few mirrors of the PLF stuff.
18:33 < kevin_> [root@u130n253 kevin]# urpmi.addmedia plf ftp://mandrakeusers.org/pub/PLF/mandrake/10.0 with hdlist.cz
18:34 <@breser> http://plf.zarb.org/packages.php
18:34 < kevin_> weird
18:34 <@breser> That's a list of PLF mirrors.
18:34 <@breser> Which incidentally still shows mandrakeusers.
18:34 < cannonball> kevin_: use a different mirror.
18:34 < kevin_> I'll try some different ones and see
18:35 < DoppelGanger> kevin_: don't use mandrake
18:35 < kevin_> don't use mandrake?
18:35 <@breser> kevin_: Mandrake has no control over the mirrors so sometimes they come and go and sometimes they are just messed up. But they're free too.
18:36 <@breser> There are also a lot of unadvertised mirrors.

19:24 <@Hawkwind> Works like freebsd ports ?
19:25 < LiquidAngle> well, the ports collection in freebsd
19:25 < LiquidAngle> you k now what i'm talking about
19:26 <@Hawkwind> Nope, I've never used Freebsd
19:26 <@Hawkwind> Heh
19:26 <@breser> I think LiquidAngle just means that you can just type a single command to install something.
19:27 < LiquidAngle> thats exactly what I mean
19:27 <@Hawkwind> Ah. With no experience in freebsd I was getting a bit confused
19:27 < LiquidAngle> Hawkwind: yeah, freebsd package systems works like debian's
