[R]Manwe: if you use no-multilib you CANNOT use 32bit
kerframilChristopherLN: it won't fix the problem you're describing though
christopherlnkerframil, it returns at the end HDIO_GETGEO failed, inapporpriate ioctl for device
Manwe[R]: and it's bad ? are there programs in 3
kerframilChristopherLN: that's not abnormal. ATAPI devices are not the same as hard disks.
Manwe32 bits that dont exist in 64 bits ? (except flash)
christopherlnkerframil, okay thank you
[R]Manwe: flash, skype, anything closed source
win32codecs
randreas69looking for a channel for the Tomtom.. anyone?
Manwe[R]: ok so if i don't want to use those apps anymore, it's good ?
[R]yes, but if you want to use a 32bit app in the futre, you WON'T be able to
it doesn't hurt to use multilib
you should just use it
Manwe[R]: but if i use 64 bits, with multilib, 32bit programs will be able to be installed on my gentoo?
[R]Manwe: if you use multilib, then you can use 32bit programs, yes
but if you use no-multilib you CANNOT, and you CANNOT switch
Manwe[R]: is it possible that 32bit programs will be installed without that i'm knowing it ?
[R]portage doesnt do anything unless you tell it
Manwe[R]: that is a great answer. ok thank you ;)
[R]the *ONLY* 32bit programs that can ever be installed is precomiled binaries, closed source stuff
everyhting you compile will be 64bits
ChicagoWhy praytell is apache 1 masked now?
grknightChicago, it's old.. very old
Chicagogrknight: Rather than argue apache1 works and there's no real need to upgrade... how did a default stage3 I have here get apache v 1.3.34 installed if I didn't unmask it then?
project9how do i find all mp3 files on system and save them as a tar file
[R]Chicago: the tree was old
grknightChicago, because the snapshot of portage you downloaded probably didn't have it masked and just caught up when you --sync last
[R]project9: locate and do some redirection magic
kerframilChicago: there is no way you could have gotten apache-1 unless you'd asked for it or masked apache-2*
Chicago: apache-2* has been standard for ages now
Chicagogrknight: [R]: Very likely... because I did only notice after a --sync a moment ago.
kerframil: Yeah standard practice for me is to mask apache-2 with >=net-www/apache-2 in /etc/portage/package.mask
kerframilChicago: well, there you go then
Chicagokerframil: There must be some logical reason why it's not only ~x86 masked but also hardmasked.
kerframilChicago: in any case, the days of apache-1 are numbered in gentoo. expect it to disappear from the tree entirely soon.
that's why it's hard masked
positron_Hello! How do I make my pidgin have sound? With normal user I have no sound but with root I do.
Chicagokerframil: Is this like XMMS going away? You have 90 days...
