Deanjo: You know your a linux addict when you start referring to multiple offspring as "the cluster"
cxo: Or when you say "sudo" before telling people what to do
Brace: you could always try 'sudo apt-get install social-life'
bkero: Or you actually 'emerge' something.
GNU\colossus: If I need a little time alone, I usually just `telinit S`
Ivanovic: cxo: pah, this is so "new geek"
Ivanovic: cxo: i would recommend using "su -c"
Deanjo: And to think some people think we are weird
Milyardo: The feeling is mutual in most cases Deanjo

cxo: Or when you start respecting women
cxo: all common problems of being a linux geek
Deanjo: michaellarabel, I made a big list of G15 linux urls for plugins and such. Still got more links to post http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showpost.php?p=52869&postcount=3
bkero: nVidias nvadpu no longer builds :/
Deanjo: are you using the same svn version?
bkero: I'm running their little supplied script
bkero: So I'm adduming they have their own svn repo of version-that-works
Deanjo: and what error are you getting?
bkero: Was something about not libavcodec not finding decoders for vdapu-decoder-something, 3 of them.
bkero: I removed the folder and am trying again, I'll pastebin it.
Deanjo: Do you have the 180.08 drivers installed?
bkero: made an ebuild and installed the nvidia-drivers-180.08 and nvidia-settings-180.08
Deanjo: your getting an error such as:
Deanjo: allcodecs.c:(.text+0x25d): undefined reference to `h264_vdpau_decoder'
Deanjo: allcodecs.c:(.text+0x64d): undefined reference to `vc1_vdpau_decoder'
bkero: libavcodec/libavcodec.a(allcodecs.o): In function `avcodec_register_all':
bkero: allcodecs.c:(.text+0x203): undefined reference to `h264_vdpau_decoder'
bkero: allcodecs.c:(.text+0x54b): undefined reference to `vc1_vdpau_decoder'
bkero: allcodecs.c:(.text+0x5e1): undefined reference to `wmv3_vdpau_decoder'
bkero: Any clue?
Deanjo: Your vdpau headers are not found, you might want read this thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123095
Deanjo: ./configure --enable-vdpau
bkero: Unknown parameter :/
Deanjo: sounds like you patched it before installing the 180.08's
bkero: I installed 180.08's a couple reboots ago
Deanjo: still builds here
bkero: What's the md5 of your configure?
Deanjo: comparing md5's is useless as I probably have different options and libraries installed
Milyardo: Does the 180 drivers not come with 32bit libs anumore?
Deanjo: I assume so, the installer still prompts me if I want to install them
cxo: may not be safe for work, http://www.leapingjaguar.com/communities/8/004/006/403/078/images/4520702235.jpg
bkero: Deanjo: Where are the header files/what are they named?
Deanjo: OMG, combustion nakedness
Deanjo: Here /usr/include/vdpau/
bkero: Yea, I don't have one of those :/
Deanjo: vdpau.h and vdpau_x11.h
bkero: wonders why the 180.08 package didn't install those
bkero: fails hard. I was typing vdapu.
bkero: I still don't have those headers, let's see if this works
