Phoronix IRC Log: 2010-09-05
Gear0: Hello, I know you guys probably get this question often.. but what happened to the whole steam on linux thing? It seemed like there was a 2-week period or so where lots of progress was made and there was news every other day... and then suddenly it just stopped... last I heard anything was back in may..
zzuper: its coming
zzuper: done for bsd so
Gear0: I assume your not talking to me?
Gear0: if you are, what does bsd have to do with it?
mjr: were I to guess, it seems it was an internal port with parts semi-accidentally released
zzuper: i havent followed it at all
meklu: I've got an itty bitty script to play a music file when the file will be up again :P
sado1: there was an forum post from michael larabel stating that it's still coming but it's delayed, someone pasted it here
meklu: ^ the post
Deanjo: Quiet down in here, can't even hear myself think, sheesh.
zzuper: : ]
giselher: 90% packet loss
meklu: giselher: ping localhost ? ;)
giselher: ping #phoronix
giselher: The most silent channel ever, but with more 100 people
giselher: maybe everyone is waiting for the day, someone posts a link to download steam for linux
Deanjo: lol, I have a feeling DNF will come out before then
meklu: to quote myself, "I've got an itty bitty script to play a music file when the file will be up again :P"
giselher: Well, than GNU has to make a Hurd release
meklu: meklu: steam, that is
adrian_broher: " lol, I have a feeling DNF will come out before then" sounds reasonable
Deanjo: BTW has anyone got a link that has up to date details on what DNF is using for an engine?
giselher: #hurd wants to talk with gearbox for a simultaneous release of DNK and hurd :)
Deanjo: There seems to be conficting reports on what it is using, some say a heavily modied Unreal 2 engine others are claiming it's Source.
sado1: don't bother about it... it won't work on linux.
sado1: two miracles like these CAN'T happen at once.
meklu: ...and UT3. That would be awesome yet unrealistic.
Deanjo: Well if it's based on a UT engine it would probably be very easy to get going with wine.
giselher: now I too have an cronjob that checks if the file is up again
Kano: michaellarabel: did you change phorogit?
Kano: fatal: cannot copy /usr/share/git-core/templates/hooks/prepare-commit-msg to /tmp/phorogit/fglrx-packaging.git/.git/hooks/prepare-commit-msg
Kano: similar for every other
michaellarabel: hmm no
RambJoe: can yaourt auto compile stuff
RambJoe: from the actual repo
RambJoe: with abs
Jimi`: whats the countdown
Jimi`: nice the timer reset
