|plazm||how can i remove all those udev rules that loads modules itself? :s|
|g1itch||If someone wants to help me with something only remotely off-topic (please?) msg me....|
|uberpinguin||Ridley: those are just the downloaded packages; when you re-emerge or update, they will just be downloaded again.|
|Ridley||uberpinguin: yes, exactly what I thought|
|danbeck||Is anyone aware of an openldap irc channel floating around?|
|fietronic||It takes forever to extract portage compared to stage3|
|Thms||What is "PCI: BIOS bug: MCFG area at f0000000 is not E820-reserved", "PCI: Not using MMconfig" ?|
|atom||hi guys. Does linux support s.m.a.r.t for sata drives?|
|fietronic||One would assume so.|
|uberpinguin||atom: define 'support' - what do you want to do?|
|MarkT-||Why, when there is a jdk-1.6.0 ebuild file on my system, does emerge -p jdk only say it wants to install 1.5?|
|atom||uberpinguin: well... It's really weird. I got this new motherboard that I don't really like (the old one gave up on me)... and as soon as I turn on s.m.a.r.t.... well, nothing works. But, i've just remembered something so I'll be back in a minuter.|
|uberpinguin||MarkT-: 1.6.0 is masked as unstable right now.|
|MarkT-||uber: Ah.... thank you.|
|MarkT-||Is there some way I could override that? I want to use 1.6|
|uberpinguin||echo "virtual/jdk" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords && echo "dev-java/sun-jdk" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords|
|andrei||what does the -v flag do to emerge?|
|uberpinguin||Andrei: verbose - you get more informative output (USE flags & such)|
|atom||no, it's not s.m.a.r.t. related, although GRUB fails to work if it's enabled.|
my disks connected to the motherboard (SATA) aren'
aren't getting recognised.
|MarkT-||uber: thanks again. Much appreciated. Can you explain what, exactly, that did?|
|uberpinguin||hm. SMART shouldn't affect GRUB at all.|
MarkT-: it told Portage to accept the ~arch keyword for those packages.
|MarkT-||Oh. I see... packages without the arch keyword are considered unstable?|
|atom||hm... any ideas for more tests I might run?|
|zlin||mzbot: gentoo MarkT- mixing|
|uberpinguin||MarkT-: no, 'arch' in this case is a variable; for example, I'm on an x86-based machine so my 'arch' is x86. ~ denotes unstable, so ~x86 would be 'unstable on x86 architecture)|
atom: what filesystem did you use for your /boot/ ?
|MarkT-||okay... thanks again, uber.|
uberpinguin: it's right at the front of the drive and it's 64 megs.
