12:01 pdurbin   having a pleasant conversation with ironcamel about coffeescript, macruby, source filters, bridges, etc. https://plus.google.com/102499719144563443986/posts/DaCzRZmPZU9
13:46 pdurbin   was just talking with people about the importance of having a second "channel" for alerts. sms vs. email, for example
13:47 pdurbin   i wonder if it would work well to set up a statusnet instance for alerts
13:47 pdurbin   since it uses the twitter api, there should be plenty of clients
13:47 pdurbin   but i'm not sure it's "push" enough
14:10 SEJeff    Well SMTP by design is a non-realtime protocol
14:10 SEJeff    While it is most often used for alerts, it isn't an idea method for that
14:44 pdurbin   mkdir /tmp/foobar && xorriso -osirrox on -indev /tmp/virtio-win-0.1-22.iso -extract / /tmp/foobar
14:45 pdurbin   Re: Linux, ISOFS, multi-extent files: what's the status? - http://lists.debian.org/cdwrite/2010/01/msg00074.html <-- this was super helpful for that xorriso command ^^
14:45 pdurbin   kept search for "how do i extract the files from an iso on linux" and such
14:46 pdurbin   now to write an RPM spec file
14:49 SEJeff    pdurbin, If it works, you should write a crimsonfu blog post on how you went about the entire thing
14:49 SEJeff    And your previous novel of links doesn't count
14:49 pdurbin   meh
14:49 pdurbin   that sounds like work
14:49 pdurbin   how about i put the spec file on github?
14:50 SEJeff    Good call
14:50 SEJeff    with a tutorial of how to extract the files and what they are good for
14:50 pdurbin   kinda like how i did for https://github.com/pdurbin/anyconnect
14:51 pdurbin   i couldn't find anything on xorriso at http://www.commandlinefu.com
14:51 pdurbin   ironcamel: did you ever get your account working?
14:51 pdurbin   if so, maybe i'll sign up
14:52 pdurbin   SEJeff: i got xorriso from your favorite repo: repoforge ;)
14:55 pdurbin   it's in fedora, at least. still need to switch to fedora from this centos box
14:55 SEJeff    :)
14:56 SEJeff    I don't hate repoforge. I just have very bad experience using it
14:57 ironcamel pdurbin: i did
14:57 pdurbin   ironcamel: link?
14:58 ironcamel pdurbin: i contacted the owner of the thing on twitter
14:58 ironcamel he green lighted me
14:58 ironcamel and a series of others he had in the queue
14:58 ironcamel pdurbin: you are talking about http://www.commandlinefu.com right?
14:59 pdurbin   ironcamel: yeah. is there a link to your account? i want to see the fu
14:59 ironcamel http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/by/ironcamel
14:59 pdurbin   awesome. thanks
15:00 pdurbin   everyone should go create an account
15:00 SEJeff    Is that a site to show off your nifty 1 liners?
15:00 pdurbin   yep
15:00 SEJeff    Their search box says: type here to grep the archive...
15:00 SEJeff    <3
15:10 pdurbin   wait a minute. . . there's no "amd64/Win2008" in this iso. . . error from yeterday: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2012-05-24#i_5633300
15:40 pdurbin   $RPM_BUILD_ROOT or %{buildroot} ?
15:41 pdurbin   "You can use $RPM_BUILD_ROOT instead of %{buildroot}. Both are acceptable, but just be consistent." -- http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package#SPEC_templates
16:27 pdurbin   weird. had to run `virsh pool-destroy tranferimages && virsh-pool start transferimages` to resolve virt-v2v: WARNING: Storage volume my-vm_my-vm already exists on the target. NOT copying it again. Delete the volume and retry to copy again. libvirt error code: 38, message: cannot open volume '/var/lib/libvirt/transferimages/my-vm_my-vm': No such file or directory
16:27 pdurbin   even though i moved the file aside
16:28 pdurbin   anyway, running now
16:28 pdurbin   takes ~18 minutes to error out: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2012-05-24#i_5633300
16:44 pdurbin   virt-v2v: my-vm configured with virtio drivers.
16:44 pdurbin   \o/
16:45 pdurbin   my spec file still needs work
16:45 pdurbin   i had to run: cp -r /usr/share/virtio-win/Win7/amd64 /usr/share/virtio-win/drivers/amd64/Win2008
16:46 pdurbin   but i'll probably put it on github soon. probably under https://github.com/fasrc
16:47 SEJeff    sweet!
19:07 pdurbin   ok so ~/rpmbuild/BUILD is %{_builddir} per http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package#Macros
19:34 pdurbin   uh. install(1) can do `cp -r`, right? looking at http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/install-invocation.html#install-invocation
19:41 SEJeff    Perhaps instead of install, you use ln(1) and make a symlink for the Win2008 dir
19:41 SEJeff    so it more accurately reflects reality
19:41 pdurbin   yeah
19:41 pdurbin   i might just do cp -r for now #lazy
19:42 SEJeff    cp -r is easier than ln -s ?
19:42 pdurbin   maybe shuff will send me a pull request :)
19:42 SEJeff    Y U SO SILLY?
19:42 pdurbin   :)
19:43 SEJeff    This is for your virtio-win rpm, correct? The thing where you're copying the Win7 dir to Win2008 to fake out the windows installer or whatnot for virt-v2v?
19:44 pdurbin   SEJeff: right, the missing "/usr/share/virtio-win/drivers/amd64/Win2008" directory i mentioned yesterday
19:45 SEJeff    Yeah a symlink seems more proper
19:45 SEJeff    Follows the principal of least surprise principal
19:45 pdurbin   yeah, probably
20:41 pdurbin   sjoeboo just showed me this. had never heard of it. very cool. "hardlink is used to create a tree of hard links. It's used by kernel installation to dramatically reduce the amount of diskspace used by each kernel package installed." -- https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/hardlink
20:42 sjoeboo   far, keep our mirror host about 1.2 as full as it normally would be with all our static/locked clones of cents at various points in time for cluster compute nodes
21:01 pdurbin   ironcamel: no unicode support? some ascii art fish i just noticed in one of our user's signatures: http://danceb.in/FphvM6ym4RGycl7bl9DNYg
21:02 ironcamel ewww
21:02 pdurbin   the raw version looks fine
21:02 ironcamel we'll have to fix that
21:03 pdurbin   if anyone needs a reminder or how to point nopaste to a different service: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2012-05-10#i_5568015
21:04 pdurbin   of
21:09 ironcamel pdurbin++ spreading the nopaste love :)
21:11 pdurbin   :)
21:25 pdurbin   \o/ i think my spec file is working
21:25 pdurbin   a little funny this time. . . had to dink around in Device Manager and scan for the right driver
21:26 pdurbin   "Red Hat VirtIO" driver
21:26 pdurbin   but it found it. gave this windows box a static ip and it can ping its route, run nslookup, etc. seems ok
21:26 pdurbin   might as well throw my spec file on github
21:27 pdurbin   so you guys can patch it for me :)
21:33 pdurbin   ok, here it is: https://github.com/fasrc/virtio-win/blob/master/virtio-win.spec
