#slitaz 2014-06-23

[09:51] necrophcodr: Alriht everyone. Anyone know of a way to get a KVM switch working with SliTaz?
[09:52] necrophcodr: been searching around on google for a few hours, couldn't really get anything useful.
[11:02] Erkan_Yilmaz: Trixar_za I could compile the source finally :-) for the future: should the --enable-cxx flag be enabled in db? if so, where to file a report?
[11:02] Erkan_Yilmaz: working on the receipt, but didn't work yet
[11:44] Trixar_za: dcosnet: I know of an 11 year old that wrote a whole Window shell with his friends. It was in Delphi, but still impressive. I think this Sam kid is just overhyped
[11:45] dcosnet: agreed
[11:46] dcosnet: just a rich kid thats getting lucky
[11:47] dcosnet: necrophcodr: a physical kvm switch has nothing to do with an OS
[11:55] Trixar_za: Hell, at 12/13 I was writing programs myself and it was in batch script - I later learned Pascal since they didn't teach us python back then - except my teacher took away marks because I started using advanced functions that she didn't teach us yet - also why I ended up quiting that class. Man, I hate rich kids
[11:56] Trixar_za: Oh right, I also learned Qbasic back when I was 14 too - lol
[11:56] Erkan_Yilmaz: we learned Turbo Pascal 5/6 in class 11/12 here
[11:56] Erkan_Yilmaz: qbasic was on MS dos, I remember the snake game
[11:57] Trixar_za: Yeah, we learned Turbo Pascal 6 too
[11:57] Trixar_za: This was in... 2000/2001 I think
[11:57] Erkan_Yilmaz: those were the times when you typed from magazines code into the pc ;-)
[11:57] Trixar_za: Normally the case
[11:58] Erkan_Yilmaz: well, that's how I started learning "programming"
[11:58] Trixar_za: Did you know the author Anthony Piers is a dedicated Linux user? I found that awesome.
[11:59] Erkan_Yilmaz: didn't know, reads http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piers_Anthony
[12:00] Trixar_za: Oops, swapped his name around
[12:00] Trixar_za: lol
[12:01] Trixar_za: Ok, the google image is pretty funny
[12:01] Trixar_za: They switch over to stats whenever the boss walks by
[12:05] Trixar_za: Mind you, I only got my first PC at 9, started fixing them myself at 11 and only officially got the internet when I was 19 when I worked my way online using a cellphone.
[12:06] Trixar_za: So I wasn't as lucky as our rich kid Sam, but it did teach me to work with nothing and find my own solutions rather than depend on the solutions of others
[12:06] Trixar_za: I built a freaking aircon with no specs or blueprint because it was Hot too
[12:08] Erkan_Yilmaz: don't know this Sam guy
[12:08] Erkan_Yilmaz: I started with c-64, but didn't fix on the hardware much there, except buy additional hardware. first hardware building was for the 286:
[12:09] Erkan_Yilmaz: bought a 20MB hd for 250 German DM :-( fucking expensive back then
[12:11] Erkan_Yilmaz: and internet I got started with FIDE mailbox systems, acusticcoplers
[12:12] Erkan_Yilmaz: and later modems and when at university: inet was free
[12:12] Erkan_Yilmaz: I remember still making my first HTML webpage
[12:13] Trixar_za: Yeah, that must have been something. Even when I started with HTML, it was still pretty hard for me to do.
[12:14] Erkan_Yilmaz: well, one couldn't do much with html back then, some formatting of text and add a picture
[12:14] Erkan_Yilmaz: man, Netscape was a nice browser back then
[12:40] Trixar_za: Mozilla is Netscape's legacy
[12:40] Trixar_za: Not so sure Firefox is as great as it once was. More bloat now
[12:41] Erkan_Yilmaz: yeah, also their DRM inclusion is not nice (though it has to be enabled), they should stand against DRM
[12:43] Trixar_za: Yeah, and pointing it out as a bug only gets you ignored
[12:44] Trixar_za: Along with the whole warning thing they keep writing in for the flash plugin
[12:45] Erkan_Yilmaz: what other choices are there? I see slitaz has midori
[12:46] Trixar_za: Yeah, Midori isn't that great
[12:47] Trixar_za: Not that anything based on QtWebKit is that great either - it's media support is broken
[12:50] Erkan_Yilmaz: well, from what I see it works for the compiled app (so it means it supports also JS)
[12:51] Trixar_za: SliTaz's midori doesn't support https though
[12:52] Trixar_za: And sometimes randomly crashes
[12:52] Trixar_za: But I think that may be the older WebKit that's used
[12:52] Trixar_za: It's not even Webkit 2
[12:54] Erkan_Yilmaz: I see
[12:56] Trixar_za: It also needs an external function to deal with ssl connections which SliTaz doesn't have
[12:56] Trixar_za: It's a library or daemon - I'm not sure
[12:56] Trixar_za: :P
[12:56] Erkan_Yilmaz: another todo
[12:59] Trixar_za: I'm not actually on #slitaz at the moment and probably won't use the new SliTaz 5 as it is now. I may make my own version of SliTaz, but built with an external tool that deals with some of the libraries and requirements for me.
[13:00] Trixar_za: If I can get off my ass and actually finish it
[13:02] Erkan_Yilmaz: when you are (half) there, make a ping
[13:09] Trixar_za: Well, there is a built image - several actually. I just haven't added the SliTaz scripts to it nor any reasonable interface (since Buildroot doesn't come with that)
[13:10] Trixar_za: Well, DEs anyway
[13:10] Trixar_za: It comes with GTK and Qt libraries and a few minor apps, but you have to do the rest
[13:16] Erkan_Yilmaz: sounds like it's easier for me to get a working receipt and use the current tazlito, ... ;-)
[13:20] Erkan_Yilmaz: I had some trouble with the app, but now a test finished and I now know, that it works for sure
[13:21] Erkan_Yilmaz: will try the receipt for it soonish
[14:20] necrophcodr: dcosnet: If you're still there
[14:20] necrophcodr: dcosnet: It shouldn't have anything to do with the OS, but can you then explain why the KVM switch works fine on Windows Server 2008 and doesn't on SliTaz?
[14:41] dcosnet: is it a hotkey system? or a digital button on the device?
[14:41] dcosnet: mine: a linksys proconnect uses both and works fine anywhere
[14:41] dcosnet: maybe yours is a fake one and uses software for some strange reason
[14:42] dcosnet: did it require a driver on windows?
[14:51] necrophcodr: dcosnet: I'm not actually sure. I'll have to look that up, and I'll post back later. Possibly tomorrow. I have to leave for now though, so it's a problem that'll be solved another time.
[15:03] dcosnet: ok good luck
[15:14] Erkan_Yilmaz: working now on the receipt
[15:14] Erkan_Yilmaz: cook appname gives:
[15:15] Erkan_Yilmaz: wget: can't open /home/slitaz/src: Is a directory
[15:15] Erkan_Yilmaz: ACTION dives in
[15:19] Erkan_Yilmaz: ACTION looks at pre_install() doc
[15:21] Erkan_Yilmaz: it seems as if the wget doesn't work from the receipt, but I checked manually and wget works
[15:26] Erkan_Yilmaz: will do now interactive mode in cook
[15:26] Erkan_Yilmaz: I wonder why it's not working, cooking with the receipts of db db-dev libdb worked
[15:32] Erkan_Yilmaz: cook starts now to download some packages, seems interactive helped
[15:35] Erkan_Yilmaz: about receipt: I just filled in BUILD_DEPENDS all packages needed, but left DEPENDS empty
[15:35] Erkan_Yilmaz: good idea?
[15:37] Erkan_Yilmaz: ACTION watches how cook goes into make-step. seems to work, c o o l
[15:40] Erkan_Yilmaz: ACTION reads now tazlito doc
[20:00] Erkan_Yilmaz: still cooking :-( damn makefile
[20:00] Erkan_Yilmaz: hope this will be the last time I cook
