[05:05:08] <lilo> [Global Notice] Hi all. We just experienced a problem with a main rotation server. It's out of contact and has been removed from rotation. The users should slowly return on other servers. Apologies for the difficulties, and thank you for using freenode!
[14:44:56] <cradek> There were errors during the LaTeX run.
[14:44:57] <cradek> One error detected
[14:44:57] <cradek> You should try to fix it.
[14:45:31] <alex_joni> cradek: try from LyX, it'll tell you what the problem is
[14:45:50] <cradek> how?
[14:45:58] <alex_joni> actually you'll have a Problem! or Error! (gray thingie) somewhere in the document
[14:46:06] <alex_joni> you need to click that
[14:46:40] <cradek> I don't see that
[14:46:57] <alex_joni> you need to be carefull ot to miss it..
[14:47:08] <alex_joni> s/ot/not/
[14:47:24] <alex_joni> what doc is this?
[14:47:26] <cradek> /usr/bin/lyx-qt --export pdf2 ../docs/src/Master_HAL.lyx
[14:47:30] <cradek> it's tiny
[14:47:39] <cradek> I'm sure there's no error in the file when I scroll around
[14:47:40] <alex_joni> cradek: no, you need to open the GUI Lyx to get that
[14:47:46] <cradek> yes I did
[14:47:54] <alex_joni> then go to Export->pdflatex
[14:47:55] <cradek> I opened this master_HAL file in lyx-qt
[14:47:57] <alex_joni> still from the GUI
[14:48:10] <cradek> pdf2 = pdflatex?
[14:48:14] <alex_joni> yeah
[14:48:22] <alex_joni> awfull way to hide it I guess..
[14:48:31] <alex_joni> pdf = pdf
[14:48:44] <alex_joni> pdflatex = ... (jmk figured out pdf2)
[14:48:53] <cradek> man I hate lyx
[14:49:01] <alex_joni> join the club :D
[14:49:16] <jepler> it sounds like a nice idea
[14:49:20] <jepler> the power of latex and it doesn't frighten babies
[14:49:26] <cradek> yes
[14:49:33] <alex_joni> jepler: the commercial sure is nice
[14:49:59] <alex_joni> <homer-mode>ohh-shiny</homer-mode>
[14:50:00] <cradek> ok I finally found the error: LaTeX Error: File `bookman.sty' not found.
[14:50:26] <cradek> my latex installation is incomplete maybe
[14:50:48] <alex_joni> * alex_joni has no idea what a 'bookman.sty' is
[14:50:58] <cradek> tetex-extra: usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/bookman.sty
[14:51:12] <cradek> a latex style file
[14:51:27] <cradek> easy enough to fix once I found the hidden error
[14:57:06] <cradek> yep, that fixed it.
[14:57:59] <cradek> I wish I knew if I can edit the lyx file without messing up lyx
[14:58:27] <jepler> If it's just to fix typos and not change markup, I bet you can
[14:58:31] <alex_joni> which lyx file?
[14:58:38] <alex_joni> oh, you mean from another GUI?
[14:58:41] <cradek> any of them
[14:58:44] <alex_joni> or text editor?
[14:58:47] <cradek> with a text editor
[14:58:59] <alex_joni> right.. just don't change too many formatiing options
[14:59:04] <alex_joni> \foo
[14:59:20] <cradek> yay for cvs
[14:59:52] <alex_joni> right.. we can always revert or diff ;)
[15:01:34] <cradek> argh, I worked on this for what seemed like hours yesterday and only got through page 13
[15:02:16] <alex_joni> cradek: it's a long document..
[17:47:41] <lilo> [Global Notice] Hi all. If you've been disconnected by a kiddie using the DC C exploit, please reconnect to freenode using port 8001, instead of the default port (6667). Thanks.
