how big is a gentoo base install?
Freman
audacity broke...
'There was an error initializing the audi i/o layer. You will not be able to play or record audio. Error: Host error.'
[KillerB]
so any ideas how large is the base gentoo is?
HeppyCat
[KillerB]: a big as you want it to be

Psych
Hi there Riddle_box.
(Action) is away: beer
Gurkan
Adieu.
traumahound
this needs to be video taped. a bot drinking a beer.
i've seen toys pour 'em but drinking it a whole different game.
i guess at $2000 a pop is it really a toy?
and thats cheap.
no, its sunday to the topic freak.
theBear
anyone know a nice easy way/trick/app to make "tree" style diagrams ? ie. something that i can edit in that looks loosely like the output of "tree" but with easy editing, so if I wanna "add" a file to a "dir" i just hit something and it inserts the line and fixes the tree branches etc for me... ?
wow ! just saw graphical installer screenshots for the first time... it sure is graphical
what in the hell ? how can my grep not support -P regexps ?
-P is err... perl regexp according to the manpage... my manpage even... just that then my grep says it doesn't support it
just hooked up portage metadata/db to my mysql database.. doing first regen now... would be o.k if it works... save a lotta time AND redundantness across machines which i like
if it works how it might that is
it'll definately save the redundance, but people have had mixed results with speed
HeppyCat
(Action) saves the redundance
i saw the gui installed the other day
roommate said he was going to try gentoo
while later, he said he was having some sort of problem
i went in his room and said 'what the hell is that?
zaei
Hahaha.
Wow.
/dev/sda1 is my windows share dir?
theBear
man.. why is it that every even slightly usable database server is made by guys who smoke sh*tloads of crack ? mysql, msql, ldap, active directory, access... all fu*king crazy
zaei
Access and database server in the same sentence? =/
theBear
yeah well, i was trying to make a ppoint that even things that are ALMOST usable are fu*ked too :)
zaei
Hehe =P
theBear
i wonder how ldap vs mysql performance goes... i can ALMOST use both of them properly now, so i should probably decide which one i like
Freman
am having evil thoughts about turning all 40 machines in the data center into a openmosix cluster...
zaei
Ooook.
I just booted into windows.
I have 1.5G of memory.
1572336 bytes.
[KillerB]
how big is a gentoo base install?
zaei
1214588 of that is available.
Daveosaurus
heh
zaei
And yet windows is ALREADY dipping into virtual memory.
Freman
depends on who's making it [KillerB]
zaei
I'm seeing 22K and 15K page faults already.
Freman
(Action) grins evily
[KillerB]
?
zaei
Haha.
Freman has gotten gentoo down to 17M or so.
Last I heard.
[KillerB]
well a regular gentoo install
zaei
Normally it's around 800 the last time I did and install.
[KillerB]
crap
zaei
an*
Freman
I can get a regular install to about 150
zaei
Freman: You're a special case =P
And you'd need more than 800 for swap.
theBear
is (portage) metadata slower generating from scratch than re-generating/updating ?
[KillerB]
well all i need is mplayer links and wifi stuff
zaei
So, at least 1G.
[KillerB]
no X no crap
zaei
linux + wifi == =..(
Freman
hmmm I wonder what sort of grunt I'd get if I did the 40 datacenter machines in opemnosix AND used coLinux to openmosix the other 22 windows machines...
[KillerB]
one more thing
Freman
linux with wifi is in the process of getting much better
[KillerB]
will gentoo bot on 32mb ram
zaei
I hate windows.
[KillerB]
boot
theBear
zaei, linux and wifi is fine... i can tell you how to setup a "wireless bridge" machine with nat rules and sh*t , no config on local machines, even works with ndiswrapper cards, dhcp and transparent and dhcp/dynamic dns allround ....
[KillerB]
i have a atheros card
Daveosaurus
heh
[KillerB]
works very well
theBear
i could do it in half an hour on a working system now, last week was a different story :)
[KillerB]
a/b/c
so any ideea is gentoo boots on 32mb ram, i think i tryed and it did not work
theBear
i've got a err.. i think it might be atheros b... netgear wg311 mk1 in the laptop, but i whatever it is i haven't worked out how to make the firmware work yet...
gentoo should boot with 32m fine... i used to have a 8meg system
[KillerB]
so im kind of stuck with debian :((
I hate it
Daveosaurus
you can always find min sys requirements from www.gentoo.org
theBear
with a little sneakiness you can even run x and a winmanager and a few apps like a browser and xchat and xmms in that kinda mem
[KillerB]
no need
this is my car laptop
i run mplay
VERY nice console player
theBear
even better... make a uclibc system... that'll be a million times smaller than deb
[KillerB]
beats xmms and winamp together
theBear
recently i've been using mpd 'cos zaei finally got to me...
[KillerB]
never liked it
zaei
Oooh, yeah.
