hatterthe installer has worked good for me so far.
dondelelcaroand frankly, if you think you can do better, you're welcome to jump in and help. Ad hominems against the people who are actually doing the work is totally useless.
route_I never said I could do better.
Supaplexlinux2: it's not pretty, and it should work, but YMMV - http://rafb.net/p/IlXL8u93.html
route_whatever
Ilovemypuppy<route_> I can do better.
dondelelcaroroute_: then clearly it wasn't written by three year olds.
peterSroute_: you implied it by your statement that the current installer looks to have been written by 3-year-olds. at least, assuming you are older than 3.
Wyzardroute_: The only bug I've come across in the installer lately is one relating to creating encrypted RAID arrays, and when I encountered the problem, I handled it constructively: I reported the bug
route_nah, I'm only 1 and a half.
peterSroute_: it's bad form to insult the developers of a system if you don't think you could do any better. it implies that you have _no_ idea how hard it actually is to write it
in fact, even if you do think you could do better, I'm betting you still have no idea how hard it actually is
route_peterS if you re-read what I wrote, you'll see that I never insulted the developers, I insulted the product of the developers.
anyway, no time to waste here, gotta start the install over AGAIN!
predderwow, what a constructive chap that was
peterSyeah I don't get how he can say that "written by a couple of 3 year olds" is not an insult to the people who did the writing
dondelelcaroweee.
rolerdoes anyone know how to change the contrast or brightness via the video card in linux? I'm on a laptop which it's blue contrast/gamma is messed. I can change gamma with xgamma, but also need to tweak a bit of the contrast.
dondelelcarogenerally that's a monitor setting, not really a video card thing
and if you've got one color imbalanced, that's definetly gamma, not contrast.
(well, gamma or connector failure)
rolerdondelelcaro, I think this is a cheap lcd display in my laptop. I have read some posts about my poor display. In windows, Intel has drivers to change contrast, brightness and gamma on all 3 color channels. I have made linux close to windows with just the gamma settings but not quite there
SmeckerHello folks
I'm trying to set up a Sarge installation to connect to an xfs-tt server on another computer (port 7110), I have an entry in my XF86Config on the computer that needs to use the font server that looks like FontPath "192.168.12.12/:7110" but I can't convince X to use this font server - even though I can query it just fine via xfsinfo. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions as to what might be going on here?
WyzardPeople actually still use xfstt?
peterSSmecker: hmmm I thought the syntax was tcp/192.168.12.12:7110
Wyzardwow :-)
SmeckerWyzard: Do you suggest I use something else?
peterS: Well, of course! ;-)
peterS: Thank you for cluing me into the obvious
peterSSmecker: heh, no problem
WyzardIf you actually need TrueType core-X fonts to be loaded from a remote host, then it's appropriate
but that seems like a fairly rare thing to me
Normally you'd just install the fonts locally, so xorg's built-in TrueType support can be used
peterSwell and in this day and age the standard xfs is probably just as good as xfstt
Wyzardthat too
Smeckergood point :-)
peterSI do remember using xfstt back in the late 90s. on AIX, with CDE. lovely stuff.
Wyzardand most newer apps use Freetype for client-side fonts, so X font servers are irrelevant
SmeckerI really don't want to be synchronizing font shares here and there
