InnatechScottK: I just did apt-get install ifrename -- and apt-get removed udev, ubuntu-minimal and some other packages --WITHOUT WARNING.  Ever seen that before?12:23
ScottKI've seen it with aptitude, but not apt.12:23
InnatechScottK: http://www.pastebin.ca/63253312:30
Innatechkinda scary. 12:31
ScottKI'd suggest looking at the package dependencies and then filing a bug against apt or ifrename depending.12:33
infinityErr, that's not a bug.12:35
infinityIn anything.12:35
infinityYou need to look at apt-get's output before you blindly answer "yes, I'd love to do that".12:36
infinityifrename correctly conflicts with udev (actually, it's the other way around, i think, but whatever)12:36
lcddgoogling for "apt-get -y" ubuntu12:38
lcdd...reveals a ton of guides using that option12:39
infinityYeah, cause "-y" is such a brilliant idea.12:39
InnatechI did't force it. 12:39
lcddi'd like to have a chat with whoever started that12:39
Innatechplain old apt-get install. 12:39
InnatechIt didn't warn me. Period. 12:39

InnatechI'll try and revert it and then reproduce it w/a typescript. 12:40
infinityInnatech: Then it must have stopped and said "new packages installed: ifrename, packages removed: udev, etc, etc, etc" and given you a [Y/n]  prompt.12:40
InnatechIf it had, I wouldn't have said anything.12:40
soreninfinity: 12:40
InnatechIndicated no packages to remove, then apparently removed a lot of my system.12:40
infinityYeah, I see no way apt could do that wihout a mangled config, or piping "yes" to it...12:43
InnatechMe neither. Yet...12:43
soreninfinity: Dapper used ifrename from udev, didn't it?12:43
infinitysoren: Don't recall when udev starting doing ifrenaming on its own.12:43
soreninfinity: Feisty, I think.12:44
soreninfinity: and Innatech specifically said LTS..12:44
InnatechCan I just slap ubuntu-minimal ubuntu-common mdadm and lvm2 back on there or am I in for a reinstall? 12:44

infinityadconrad@terranova:~$ apt-cache show udev | grep ^Conflicts12:46
infinityConflicts: hotplug, ifrename12:46
infinityAnd that's just fine.12:46
infinityWhat's not fine is the behaviour he saw from apt, which I've never seen in my life.12:46
infinityInnatech: Is it possible you just stuttered on the enter key? :)12:46
Innatechwell, I'm going to try restoring what dkpg shows was removed. We'll see what happens. 12:46
Innatechinfinity: Occams razor demands I consider it, but I swear it showed 0 packages to remove. 12:47
soreninfinity: I'm clearly an idiot. If udev needed ifrename to do interface renaming... Why would they conflict?12:47
infinitysoren: It doesn't.12:48
infinitysoren: It does it on its own, hence the conflict.12:48
infinitysoren: For non-udev systems, you need ifrename to do the same job.12:48
soreninfinity: Didn't we just agree that that was only the way it has been done since Feisty?12:49
infinitysoren: You agreed to that, I went to check for myself. :P12:49
=== ryanakca [n=ryan@ubuntu/member/ryanakca] has joined #ubuntu-server
InnatechOK. This router was softRAIDed....I'm going to reboot it. We'll see what happens.....12:49
soreninfinity: Ok... We agreed that something had changed at some point. :)12:50
soreninfinity: Maybe I'm just thinking of the net-persistent-rules blah vs. iftab.12:50
ajmitchmost likely, that was recent12:51
sorenYeah, feisty for sure.12:51
Innatechis that "blah" you mentioned a way for me to prevent device assignments from changing w/o using ifrename and iftab?12:51
soreninfinity: What's the problem with using iftab?12:51
sorenInnatech: ^^12:51
infinityInnatech: udev should handle iftab on its own, you don't need ifrename if you're using udev.  That's why they conflict.12:52
InnatechOK..well on this reboot, eth3 and eth5 (which on the prior boot were eth3 and eth4) are now eth5 and eth6. WTF?! (at least it came back up, I guess...)12:52
InnatechI scared to test apt-get now. Heh. 12:53
sorenInnatech: And what's in iftab?12:54
Innatechlemme see. 12:54
Innatechsoren: just eth0. >headsmack<12:54
InnatechAnd on reboot, the link came up on one of the NICs ports---the lack of which is what got me into this in the first place. 12:55
InnatechWill apt-get output show up in a typescript?12:56
infinityShould do.12:57
Innatechalright, then. Let me see if I can reproduce this before I get too much further into troubleshooting my actual problem.12:57
InnatechOK--nevermind. I need to beat the crap out of my part-time "help."  Someone made a naughty alias. 01:00
Innatech>:( 01:00
Innatechyeah. 01:00
Innatechprobably was supposed to be temporary. Still terminally stupid. 01:01
Innatechamazingly, everything seems fine. That's fairly cool. It's not everyday I manage to rip out some of the core of a distro, plop it back in and have smooth sailing.....01:03
infinityIf it was core, it would have screamed louder. :)01:05
infinityYou didn't take out anything that was Essential or Required, just some nice-to-haves.01:05
Innatechubuntu-standard and ubuntu-minimal *sounded* important. 01:10
Innatechand seeing LVM2 and mdadm vanish scared me. But, alls well that ends well.01:11

=== tck [n=tck@] has joined #ubuntu-server

=== jdstrand [n=james@mail.strandboge.com] has joined #ubuntu-server
InnatechOK, so--back on the dual core Opteron -- LTS server installer is hanging after HW detection. (After it prompts for hostname and HTTP proxy.) It seems like this server really doesn't want to run Dapper. Are there steps I can take to gather useful information for maintainers? (I have tried  both "nolapic" and "noapic nolapic" .)01:44
infinityWe run edgy on our dual-core machines in the Canonical datacentre.01:47
InnatechI can do that if neccessary--I'd rather not proliferate platforms, though. I've been using Dapper almost everywhere, and CentOS5 where I can't user Dapper. I'm really over the RHEL environment, though. I'm much happier in Ubuntu/Debian land. 01:48
InnatechAnyway, I was just wondering if there's anything useful I can do at this point in terms of gathering information useful to the Dapper team. 01:49
Innatechcan I exit the installer and look for a log in the ramdisk somewhere? 01:51

ryanakcaDepends: egroupware-core (= ${Source-Version})04:55
ryanakcaI suppose I can just use that in the -egw-pear package? or do I have to go egroupware-core (>= 1.4.001)04:56
ScottKThe upstream INSTALL file usually tells you about required stuff.04:56
=== ryanakca nods
ryanakcaand... it's a circular depends04:57
ScottKFor example the -pear package probably depends on a pear DB that core doesn't04:57
ScottKRight.  Can't have that04:57
ryanakcaegroupware-core depends on egroupware-egw-pear, and vice-versa04:57
ryanakcaat least from I see04:57
ScottKCan't have that.  You need to pick one.04:58

ivoksi was refering to openldap09:42
ivoksbut it also isn't gpl09:42
sorenOh, right. Didn't notice.09:42
ivoksso, dump gnutls?09:43
sorenivoks: Hang on. You say ldap is built against openssl and postfix is built against.. what?09:46
ivoksboth :)09:46
ivokspostfix against openssl, and postfix-tls against gnutls :)09:46
ivokscheck out ldd /usr/lib/postfix/dict_ldap.so09:47
sorenWelll, in a perfect world, we'd make postfix use gnutls, but I have a feeling that's not very easy to do (otherwise someone would probably have done it already).09:47
ivoksand ldd /usr/sbin/postfix09:48
sorenI haven't got postfix-ldap installed.09:49
ivokseh, anyway:09:49
ivokslibgnutls.so.13 => /usr/lib/libgnutls.so.1309:49

ivoksbut ldd slapd:09:49
ivokslibssl only09:49
sorenSo slapd uses openssl, postfix-ldap uses gnutls, and postfix uses openssl? That's pretty crackful.09:50
ivoksyeah :/09:51
stephanbuyswhat is the reason for resistance to openssl (as opposed to gnutls?)09:51
ivoksstephanbuys: http://www.gnome.org/~markmc/openssl-and-the-gpl.html09:53
stephanbuysthere's been some interest from the Google SoC project to have LDAP-out-of-the-box (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GoogleSoC2007) - according to Rick these library issues are also holding up the inclusion of OpenLDAP 2.3?09:54
=== Nicke [n=niclasa@ua-83-227-140-135.cust.bredbandsbolaget.se] has joined #ubuntu-server
ivoksthe thing is that openssl devs don't nag about breaking their license09:54
ivoksbut that could always change09:55
ivoksand the problem is that openssl has better performance than gnutls09:55
stephanbuysivoks, having glanced over that page it seems like a shame. as you said, performance and maturity...09:56
ivoksyeah, stupid 'we did this' caluse09:56
ivoksthat destroyed xfree too :)09:56
stephanbuysah - but it destroyed Xfree when they tried to go that route didn't it? on the other hand openssl has basically been prolific for ages...09:57
ivoksthere wasn't any substitute for it... now there are mozilla's nsss and gnutls09:58
sorenWeird. When I build postfix on my build server, it doesn't pull in libgnutls13..09:58
ivoksbut, with worse performance09:58
ivokssoren: true and it shouldn't09:58
ivoksbut the binary we ship is build with it...09:59
sorenOur buildd's pull in libgnutls13 when they build postfix.09:59
sorenif they didn't it couldn't be linked against it.09:59
