hi there
OK, I give up. How do I get my Gentoo box into single user mode?
or even better: I want to unmount /home to do a e2fsck on it... but it reports it as busy. Any ideas on where I can see what process is keeping it busy>
phillyshreds
ok i tried everything
john1008
tehe i wonder abt why one wants to have a singleuser system
phillyshreds
how do i check what version of xorg i have?
Gidzz0r
xdpyinfo
zaei
X -version
Gidzz0r
:>
try zaei's tip instead..

(Action) needs help with nvidia and X

Can someone lend us a second set of eyes (perl eyes please) http://pastebin.com/630328 <- perl -c keeps telling me "Useless use of private variable in void context line 23." can anyone see what's wrong with it? I can't...
phillyshreds
(II) Loading extension GLX
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
this is the only thing i can't get to work in gentoo
i got everything perfect otherwise
rajman
did you compile the module?
Freman
what rajman said
rajman
make sure your x and kernel versions of the module are the same, too
phillyshreds
where would it be located?
i used emerge
rajman
well your kernel is in /usr/src/linux-* to begin with
phillyshreds
i know that
rajman
so you need the kernel module and the X module
phillyshreds
i had to recompile it to get alsa working
Freman
Sorry, I messed up the paste... http://pastebin.com/630334 can anyone tell me why I might be "Uselessly" using a private variable in void context on line 45?
rajman
did you emerge both nvidia-glx and nvidia-kernel ?
and if so are they the same version number?
phillyshreds
yeah
i'll emerge them again
Gurkan
[Ribs] CAPSLOCK IS AUTOPILOT FOR COOL
phillyshreds
what's the best way to do that
i'm gonna recompile the kernel first
then emerge those packages again
theBear
err... emerge -pv nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel i suppose...
then remove the p when that looks good
Freman
ah never mind
after looking at it 30 times I had =>. instead of >=
theBear
YOU FOOL :)
Freman
shuddup
you write drivers in perl!
??dsc ? perl -c DiscStakka.pm
DiscStakka.pm syntax OK
now that's a good feeling
now to write the other 300 lines for client.pl
theBear
heh.. deep sea perl drivers
(Action) smiles
hmm... no-one else finds that sentence inexplicably funny eh ?
         

DiAbLe666
no
:p
theBear
i like shiny things
Freman
I think I'm going home...
theBear
i think i'm going round the corner
phillyshreds
this doesn't make sense
the module is loaded in the kernel
modprobe nvidia doesn't say anything really
rajman
so you've recompiled your kernel [properly for module] and now emerge nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel
john1008
and nvidia-settings maybe ...
does that work?
phillyshreds
ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.
do i use to type " make "
after it's done?
oh dugh
nm
john1008
huh make? i thought you emerged the packages
phillyshreds
nm
i just compiled the kernel
now i'm emerging
(Action) has followed the guide step by step going to reboot
same error messages
Scorpaen
i'm outta beer
john1008
(Action) passes Scorpaen a box of erdinger
Scorpaen
??
john1008
bavarian beer ...
Scorpaen
mmmm
thanks
john1008
i feel your pain ;-)
phillyshreds
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
that file exists
so why would it say module not found
lenox
did you rebuild your kernel after compiling that module?
phillyshreds
no
i did it before
lenox
hm
i forget the order
just reaching at straws over here. you did opengl-update nvidia or whatever?
phillyshreds
yeah
i think i fixed it
in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ nvidia_drv.o was the only file
yet in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers it had lots of display drivers
i copied and pasted
(Action) wins against the horrible configuration of emerge
(Action) has nvidia driver working now
the driver was in the wrong directory
lenox
ah
phillyshreds
so i didn't do anything wrong
i followed the instructions to a T
and searched google for 10 hours
i don't give up
sinthetek
anyone know how to regenerate a new /var/lib/init.d/depcache? :\
phillyshreds
i am relentless
i'm probably the only person that can install gentoo who is an ex-con that lives in south philly
gn00b
how do i mount a .bin file?
phillyshreds
cuz i've been in jail 4 times and i never met any techs
theBear
i know a tech who went to jail for paedophile offences
phillyshreds
that's horrible
i was just a crazy drunk from 18 to 23
i'm 24 and mellowed out
thanx for everyone's help
theBear
i'm not saying its o.k.. but guess where i first met him many years before.... irc :) we used to have parties and bbq's when we all hung out in the channel named after our city....
phillyshreds
i got everything working perfect in gentoo
theBear
heh... so what did yer do then ?
phillyshreds
well first time i shoot a registered rifle in the air to scare away 10+ people trying to hurt my friend
then i was on parole and it got violated for me being a drunk and breaking windows
twice
theBear
heh... thats o.k.. we've all done things like that....
well, some of us :)
never shot a gun in a crowd.... but i've done it in a backyard <grin>
phillyshreds
yeah i'm guilty of nothing more than anyone with enough beer in him would do in a bad situation
i'm getting ready to run quake 4 in linux
theBear
i wouldn't know about that... i still don't have good enough pc's / cards to run stuff like that :)
phillyshreds
i built this PC
theBear
tuxracer is kinda cool with the new (old) ati drivers tho
i've built every pc except the first i owned... of course i rebuilt it a few times
phillyshreds
i only got a 5200 FX though
theBear
its outside the door empty now
i've got a radeon 7000dualhead :) got a g550 too, but its in the other machine
phillyshreds
my card played quake 4 okay on XP
is there anyway i can block outgoing connections from linux?
theBear
look up about iptables
you can selectively block/allow ANY port/protocol/interface etc etc...
phillyshreds
this reminds me of when i learned win32 api in C++ before learning the syntax
i don't know many linux commands
theBear
once you get the basics (cd ls less more nano etc etc) you are off and racing.. you've got man for man pages and the web for everything else.. a feww tricks like grep and sed are good to learn....
phillyshreds
i like this way better than xp
i still like XP more than most distro's of linux
that i've tried
theBear
mmm... remember with ... bastard left... remember with linux you can change the window manager etc as much as you please...
Freman
someone dcc me a keyboard
theBear
i would, but apparently i can't send dcc's
Gurkan
shh, sekrit
theBear
(Action) is seeing arj barker in 15 mins....
Freman
I might have a bannanna... seing as they're worth $4 more then what they were worth when I bought them... I'm going to enjoy em
lenox
expensive bananas
Freman
tis what happens when a cyclone flattens the bannana crops
phillyshreds
