mail
and once i figure it out, asterisk
pinkerton
hrm
phone is totally overratted
rated*
HeppyCat
and sun lays off 5k
ive got asterisk running on a debian box right now
which i would love to turn off
pinkerton
srsly
anything related to gaytu sucks ;)
HeppyCat
hah
oh did you see the sun press release?
Separately, Sun and Canonical announced that the Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support) operating system will make its way to Sun's UltraSPARC T1-based servers. These systems had been Solaris-only.
"Ubuntu is arguably one of the most important - if not the most important - GNU/Linux distribution on the planet and will soon blaze new trails in support for SPARC-based servers," Sun EVP John Fowler said. "The availability of both Solaris and Linux-based operating systems on the Niagara (UltraSPARC T1) platform will further expand our lead in delivering chip multi-threaded innovation and choice to customers."
pinkerton
word
theBear
hmm... so does this mean they're gonna throw lots of money into kernel dev. so my sparc32 will be able to run a 2.6 kernel with more than 1 60mhz processor ? <grin>
         

pinkerton
no
HeppyCat
hahahahahahahaha
pinkerton
sun sucks
get over it!
HeppyCat
(Action) falls over
pinkerton
:-p
Gurkan
sun = crap-rifle
HeppyCat
now rupert
you know better than to expect ANYTHING from sparc32
theBear
they kick arse
HeppyCat
except warming pizzas
yeah, i could see one swinging from a rope into someone's ass
would be quite painful
theBear
i'm tempted to learn about cpu-programming and fix it... if 2.4 worked, and 2.6 doesn't, it can't be THAT hard to find, just that i seem to be the most interested person on the planet :)
HeppyCat
d00d
pinkerton
that thing is like 15 years old
HeppyCat
i know you've hung out on #gentoo-sparc before
sparc32 aint happening
theBear
yeah, and ?
its cool... it'll happen
pinkerton
no!
HeppyCat
yeah yeah
Psych
\o/ no
theBear
still kickin arse on 2.4 :)
HeppyCat
and im still using 2.4 as well
but i have the possibility of moving to 2.6
pinkerton
does it act as a space heater like HeppyCat's?
         

theBear
2.6 is way better on x86, features AND performance...
HeppyCat
pinkerton: his is a heating pad
mine is a room heater
pinkerton
ah
HeppyCat
technically, his is a pizza warmer
theBear
kinda... it feels like it blows out maybe 80-90degC air, but only a little bit of it :)
thats the one with 3 OLD scsi drives, sh*tloads of ram, 2 60mhz procs and a 3d card :)
HeppyCat
how many procs do you have in yours rupert?
its an ss20 right?
ah
mine doesnt have a 3d card
and i want to say it only holds 2 drives
theBear
the running/good one is sstation20, got a sserver20 too, and a sserver10
HeppyCat
but of course, i cant see ever turning that thing on again
you should get your hands on a u2
move on over to sparc64
theBear
i should, but no money to spend this year, tho i do have money to eat for a change :)
just got a k6-2 if that counts :)
HeppyCat
thats quite good
hehe
ive got some 1ghz piii chips floating around
pinkerton
i suppose money to drink doesn't count as money for food?
HeppyCat
if that'll do you any good
pinkerton: liquid bread
is food
traumahound
personally i always inclueded beer money in the food money.
pinkerton
i was refering to beer
theBear
its good... 100% stable now, fake-bridge-nat MAGIC wireless gateway.... still doesn't have dhcp setup, but if you give a wireless card an ip and a gateway and dns number, it appears on the local network and the local machines don't even know the difference
HeppyCat
i did the same traumahound
theBear
of course food includes beer, without either, i dide
die
traumahound
i could live without food.
just have to drink more beer to make up for it.
theBear
mmmm.... i used to do that.... made me sleepy in the afternoons tho....
traumahound
but these days people get pissy if ya come to work in the morning smelling like you had fun the night before.
theBear
if they're gonna be like that, i get the feeling them and me won't be working in the same place for long :)
HeppyCat
haha
i would do that often enough
so if i had a couple shots in the morning
i wouldnt smell any different
theBear
hehehe
nice work hep
Gurkan
-_-
Psych
:-)
theBear
the signs of a true burgeoning alco :)
HeppyCat
heh heh
pinkerton
:-/
traumahound
but the frequent trips to the water fountain might be a sign.
HeppyCat
i had a very cool boss at the time
traumahound
oh yeah? hiring? hehe...
HeppyCat
which was strange, seein how it was usps
and i was just a contractor
theBear
hep: you drove the truck ? <GRIN>
HeppyCat
hahaha
pinkerton
of course
traumahound
that why my packages never show until like 10 til 7pm?
HeppyCat
sat in a closet of an office most of the time
theBear
(Action) wonders what in the hell went wrong with his portage/nfs locks the other day....
pinkerton
i want to know my / is ro but moutn says it's rw
HeppyCat
actually guys
i learned a whole lot about the postal service
they are amazingly effecient
id rather have a package shipped by them than ups
theBear
was emerging on a few machines with a shared nfs /usr/portage .... when i woke up 2 of them were stuck on gcc which was just finishing on the 3rd... now the 2 freeze just after the >>> emerge (1 of blah) line no matter what i t ry to emerge :( i don't wanna reboot anything
pinkerton, something to do with a disk/fs/memory error ? chekced dmesg ?
traumahound
yeah... they get ya package there days before its spose to be delivered then it sits there until its actually time to go out for delivery.
pinkerton
theBear: no i haven't
heh
Gurkan
:-)
pinkerton
EXT3-fs error (device hda3) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted
gg
traumahound
ext3? i've had problems with eext3 and reiser.
er ext3
theBear
mmm... and i don't know if anyone noticed, but ups vs usps to countries like aus is a BILLION times cheaper ! one place refused to use usps (i worked out the postage, woulda been about under $10 us from memory, for a couple of cpu's) this ebay company would ONLY USE ups ... they quoted $45 US for postage on an item worth less than $20 that NOONE else wanted....
i had a machine with some SLIGHTLY dodgy ram that used to do that (ext3 error) every few weeks.....
traumahound
they charged me $20 to ship a motherboard to california.
pinkerton
yeah i'll have to take it down tonight and fsck it
traumahound
last fs error i had was due to it sh*tting itself because i filled it up completely.
theBear
i even offered to buy OTHER stuff no-one wanted if they would usps it, but NO
i fill up fs's frighteningly often these days :)
only root fs's... not unimportant data ones :)
traumahound
this wasn't my root fs.
but it still took a sh*t.
theBear
i remember a time when you could comfortably install and run a gentoo system in 2 or 3 gigs :)
traumahound
still can.
theBear
mysql is the worst... that sucka hates running out of disk space
traumahound
but its the logs, updates, distfiles and sh*t that end up filling it up.
theBear
traumahound, i mean a full desktop with everything, building mozilla and glibc and sh*t locally :)
and yeah, /usr/portage local, all that.. these days even a basic system is pretty big....
traumahound
i'm only using 19 gigs with distfiles and sh*t still there but a lot of it is games.
theBear
/usr/portage is HUGE now (even without any distfiles...) used to be err, 150meg or so ? or was it 50 ?
pinkerton
yeah it used to be barely anything
traumahound
yeah it is huge. but my distfiles are only about 1.5 gigs.
and my home is about 2 gigs.
theBear
since i've had the nfs-portage on a decent machine i've just been keeping a good whack (gig or so) of distfiles there... i've only got one disk bigger than 9gig, and over 10 machines... lets put it that way
got a lovely HP dual backplane, dual psu, hotswap style scsi box the other day with 4 9 gig's and a 4 gig in it... nice
traumahound
when i diced up this new drive for this box i gave everything for the system 100 gigs and 200 gigs for data.
HeppyCat
quite
10+ machines theBear?
yay its time to get out of here
