yettenetShining: I had to copy a few files after makepkg
That solved it :P
shining:o
yettenet: you didn't install the package ? pacman -U blackbox*.pkg.tar.gz ?
tct1501its okey judicator_ :) but faster than a normal setup in which is being written to one disk a a time
instead of 2
yettenetshining: Nah, I just did makepkg
shiningyettenet: rofl
tct1501and the reading of course
shiningyettenet: you missed the point
yettenetoh :)
I see :P
Well then, recompiling it :P
xarragonshining: Nah, but it happens sometimes but you want another package. Some packages for example requires mesa opengl libs, but they might conflict with your precious nvidia libs, so unless you uninstall your nvidia drivers, you acn't install the app, even though the nvidia opengl libs can meet the needs of the app. In that case you'd override the deps check.
shiningyettenet: the idea of makepkg is that it makes a package, so then pacman can install / remove it and handle dependencies
yettenet: you don't need to recompile it, just install that pkg.tar.gz
yettenet:)
shining: I knew something like this should happen
xarragonHm, my grammar isn't up to par. Caffeine levels insufficient.
judicator_tct1501: I only use the RAID for backups. It seems to be about as fast as a single drive though. Albeit with some CPU overhead
yettenetbtw, I have to recompile it, since I deleted everything but the original tgz
shiningxarragon: ah I see, I remember having odd problems when trying to do some weird stuff
xarragonshining: Yeah, it isn't too common, but it's useful to be able to shoot your own toe at times.
shiningxarragon: but that's because I mixed up several repo, unstable and experimental, and the build deps were quite borken in that case :)
xarragonHeh.
shiningyettenet: it doesn't hurt to keep it, and as you just saw, it can be useful :)
yettenetshining: :)
tct1501yeah.... exactly my mileage.. i tried it in first place it it were to be to get a faster system.. second for backup... but as i have problems mounting an LVM-partition on raid... i think i keep it on raid only... grub is a bitch when it comes to lvm
xarragonI still remember when the new xorg went into debian testing, but the required nvidia drivers didn't get in until a month later... That was when I switched, `cuz the open 'nv' driver made the cooling fan run full tilt on my geforce, driving me mad.
yettenetWell, recompiled it
Now pacman -U ....package?
shiningtct1501: hm, grub doesn't have to support it, does it? you don't just need a separate /boot partition ?
judicator_yeah. they are both complicated systems. Putting them together seems to be inviting drive failure, data loss, ulcers, etc
shiningxarragon: lol, that's weird :p
xarragonNo, it's 'the debian way'. :-)
shiningxarragon: hm well, that's also nvidia's fault
xarragonDebian is fine as long as you run stable. If you do alot of stuff on the computer, and you use properietary drivers... Then be caseful...
tct1501i have a seperate boot partition, but i never used grub since a few weeks, so the boot syntax is confusing to me. look at this
