valdynSolak: ah i found it
RvGaTeanyone ? :S
i kinda need my pc today :P
Solakre
sepRvGaTe, can you giev boot argument to avoid splashy ?
Solakvaldyn: and?
valdynSolak: appearance & themes -> Fonts -> Use anti-aliased fonts -> Configure... > Use sub-pixel hinting
sugoruyohi all
jellydromer: does http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ offer a driver for that card?
Solakvaldyn: yes, but what's the correct setting for TFT's?
enoufvaldyn: after we starightened it out .. at first I could easily mount say a debian.iso netinstall .. but can't loop mount any initrds at all .. I give up .. I bet a reboot or a restart of udev maybe would do it .. I've straced the commands (when trying to mount), but it's a bit beyond me to decipher though it fails quite quickly .. so .. I'm calling it quits for now..
RvGaTesep: i have no idea, im more concerned about having a broken system right now... i want to know what's taking so long
sugoruyoi need some help installing debian
cause the installer hangs when probing for CD drives
valdynenouf: this shouldn't be udev related
jellySolak: there is no "correct" setting, find out which looks the nicest to you.
Solakhmmm.
sepRvGaTe, that's tricky when you can't see the screen :) is network up ? can you ping it ? can you ssh it ?
valdynenouf: though its still an error that your loop devies don't get freed automagically
jellySolak: for example, I dislike sub-pixel hinting
enoufvaldyn: ok .. whatever .. actually the error most common when trying to mount the initrds is;
valdynSolak: .. and pick the rgb order that looks best
enoufioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Device or resource busy
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Though I can easily mount any .iso a "mount -o loop /initrd.img /mnt/loop1" fails horribly
RvGaTesep: i can ping it, i can even ssh it...
valdynenouf: -t ramfs? or whatever the fs is
RvGaTesep: ill disable splashy, and do a reboot... see what happens
jellyRvGaTe: if you can ssh in, you can see the process tree and where is the boot up sequence stuck
enoufvaldyn: hrmm .. maybe .. lemmee try .. I dio NOT recall having to do that .. dang .. you may have something there .. doh
RvGaTejelly: how would i do so ?
jellyRvGaTe: pstree?
valdynenouf: that initrd could be gzipped too.
enouf!prize and pony valdyn
actiondpkg gives and pony valdyn a medal.
dpkggives and pony valdyn a medal.
enoufvaldyn: yeee hawww .. I'm such a putz .. thanks mate
valdynenouf: only filesystems that are already loaded are autodetected
RvGaTejelly, im not sure i understand
valdynenouf: ( which some exception on some distros, no idea about debian )
sepRvGaTe, cant you just kill splachy in ssh ?
