kojiro[R]: dude... I'm in #gentoo
[R]lol
Chicagokojiro: I tried 2 years ago to go backwards from ~x86 to x86... didn't work at all... I think portage only wants to move forward... not backwards.
kojiroChicago: that's what I'm saying
actionwynd_ will stick with x86 thank you :P
wynd_will stick with x86 thank you :P
[R]if done properly, i'm sure ~arch -> arch is possible
kojiroChicago: you *really* have to know what you're doing to revert from ~arch
[R]: I've done it, but I wouldn't want to walk someone through it
[R]gosh, i hate windows... why do they have to charge money for the stupidest programs
Draconx|Laptopit's especially tricky if there's a glibc downgrade involved.
kojiroDraconx|Laptop: yeah :)
Draconx|Laptopat which point you may as well save yourself the time and pull out a stage3
kojiro[R]: because you can't charge money for the good ones :P
oh wait. Yes you can!
Draconx|Laptop: reinstalling maybe, but putting a stage 3 over an already installed system is a recipe for apocalyptic mess.
[R]i want to see what's so great, wonderful, and terrific about thsi stupid vista media center nonsense
DecadeOn the off chance that the answer is yes, is anyone here familiar with NBD?
[R]Decade: network block devices?
kojiro[R]: join ##windows :P
Decade[R]: Yes.
[R]kojiro: i'd rather gouge out my eyes
Decade[R]: Though, I am looking more for who's familiar with it.
[R]Decade: i know i've enabled it in the kernel, and some magical scripts i used told me they were using it
smallwould it harm security to install xorg on a web server?
[R]small: why would you use a web server as a desktop
kojirosmall: not when it's not running... not really
Decade[R]: Why do you assume xorg would be used?
[R]why would you install it if you weren't going to use it
small[R]: I've never setup a web server and xorg would help me when I go online to find instructions and howtos
Chicagosmall: have another machine available.
[R]thats what ssh was invented for
smallChicago: ok
no xorg then
Decadesmall: Er, lynx and its competitors exist for that.
ChicagoDecade: It's rough using lynx to read the gentoo-handbook.
[R]again, thats what ssh is for
DecadeThough, a web browser by itself is a bit of a security risk.
Chicago: Not that hard. I've done it.
ChicagoAnybody know why the ed2k-gtk-gui is still in portage if the overnet network is basically advertised as offline?
[R]maybe the gentoo devs didn't get the memo
