16:54 <webspid0r> just use i3
16:54 <webspid0r> !next

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

That shows one of my major peeves when asking for support. You are asking for help with something very specific, and they tell you to use something else entirely. In this case, where they said "just use i3", then "next", and "Another satisfied customer! NEXT!". Extremely rude, IMHO. mad

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

lol

PS: Did you get your problem fixed? I see 2-3 syntax errors tongue :

  1. ${"eth0" down_kb"}   <-- one " too many or one missing

  2. color="#46a>   <-- one " missing before > unless the window is cutoff (could be since the colour code appears incomplete)

  3. ${Eth0 up_mb}   <-- capital Eth0 and either missing ""s at this eth0 or there shouldn't be any at the other eth0 above

Cloudef? He certainly isn't a noob, he's just joking around. Which, makes me think, everyone on IRC does. I have never ever gotten help on IRC before.

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

IRC can be hit or miss -- often miss -- when it comes to getting help. I've gotten assistance on many occasions, and on some, not so much. Forums are far better for getting answers.

Also, I think at least one of the mods here is a mod on the IRC channel (and it's not me), so the mods here who aren't mods on the IRC channel have no authority there, to answer a complaint about distro-bashing. As for here, let's not start it, OK?

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

The one thing about that chat thread - and I do understand OP posted it for the LULz from Cloudef's lighthearted trolling (presumably also for the LULz) - that gets my goat is the insipid use of "adjective noun is adjective". roll

@ratcheer:  I agree; even here, we occasionally see advice along the lines of "What, having trouble with application X?  Just use application Y."  It's like telling a guy on a bicycle asking for directions to take the freeway.

@lcafiero:  Clearly the chat log posted above was from an Arch IRC, and copy-pasted here for a chuckle; I see no cause for alarm. cool

While I agree it is not distro-bashing, jmad2011, and I know it is of no cause for alarm, pvsage, someone reported it as such, and I am responding to that particular complaint.

Carry on, all.

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

Well if it was taken that way and warranted reporting i apologize.it was humorous especially the part about the guards figured i would share i thought i removed everything pertaining to which irc it was seems next time i'll remove names make sure there is no mention of which distro

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

@jmad2011:  If you had removed references to distros (I knew it was Arch because you stated you "run arch on other part"...well, that and the "infidel" business lol ) you would have removed the joke at the and and had nothing to post. wink

To the forum member who reported this thread as "bashing":  You should be aware that reports to moderators are not anonymous. /AlexMurphy

I once went to take a peek at the orange IRC channel and said, "Phpppt! How on earth are people supposed to get support there?"
I never go to IRC for support.

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

^ I said the same when I saw a log of our own IRC channel; I doubt any channel has cornered the market on high noise-to-signal ratios. roll  Some people can communicate fairly easily in IRC, some of us have trouble with live one-on-one chat sessions.

At any rate, I always recommend the #! forum over the IRC channel, unless someone is in desperate need of immediate assistance and is comfortable in IRC.

I recently did a fresh arch install on a new SSD. I already had a working and well maintained Arch install on a similar disk in the same machine, I just wanted to fresh start. And for whatever reason, when I reinstalled my onboard NIC changed from "eth0" to "eno1". I guess that's the udev that's built into systemd then? I was wondering why that changed. I must have had some config file before that was fixing the name even though I had the most recent systemd and everything on there.

Re: LOL Asking For Help In A Irc For A Distro

You are absolutely right, mynis01.

With the change to the new naming system, a config file was automatically created so existing network configurations wouldn't break. This empty file (or even a symlink to /dev/null) was /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules. Once this file is present, the old device names have been used.

This file isn't created during fresh installs, thus you had the new naming system working on your recent install.

I guess if you create this file and reboot your system, you would get the old names. But I can't imagine why one would want this.

More information about this device names can be found in the Arch wiki:
