zulnealmcb: ah01:24
nilsonI run the NFS server on my machine. Apparently the default install does not include rpc.ugidd, which I want to use to map GID/UIDs across my client systems01:35
nilsonWhat would be the best way to get it? Will I need to manually configure and compile the nfs server01:36
jncnealmcb: Yes, I have to configure ACPI as disabled in BIOS, -or- alternatively I can boot the kernel with acpi=off option01:44
jncboth are functionally the same result meaning if I don't do either one, then there's a kernel panic, and if I do one or both of those there is no kernel panic and everything is working as it should01:45
jnczul: I've updated the community Xen document01:46
kjcoleHi.  I've upgraded to Gutsy and once again my LVM stuff is dead.   Help.01:50
kjcoleThough I'm not running a server, this channel is supposedly more knowledgeable about LVM.01:53
jncUnfortunately we cannot overcome the limitations of your not being connected to hear the answer02:11

scottheasy question that I thought I knew the answer to but apparently not, how do I set the hostname on an ubuntu system, including the fqdn?04:09
scotthI would like hostname to return 'foo' and hostname -f to return 'foo.example.com'04:10
scotthapache keeps saying its unable to determine its own hostname04:12
scotthand the reverse dns points to foo.example.com04:12
nealmcbscotth: yeah - a surprisingly complicated question.04:14
scotthI feel like an old tymer, but back in my day all you had to edit was /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname04:15
nealmcbthose two are usually involved, for sure.  exactly what does apache say?04:16
nealmcband do other things work?04:16
nilsonwhat does `hostname` return04:16
sommerscotth: the way I make that apache error go away is to set the ServerName directive in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf or in the sites-available/default config file.04:18
nilsonscott run hostname --fqd see what it returns04:18
scotthsommer: I set ServerName in the sites-avaliable04:18
nilsonand make sure /etc/init.d/hostname.sh is started04:18
jncscotth: there was a change to /etc/hosts with recent Ubuntu releases which may affect you, it involves changing to for the hostname04:19
sommermmmMMM... might also add ServerName localhost to apache2.conf04:19
scotthnilson: it returns outkast04:19
nilsoneven with the --fqd option?04:20
scotthnilson: yes04:20
nilsonlooks like your server doesn't know its domain04:20
scotthjnc: my entry is still
scotthnilson: I have domain set in /etc/resolv.conf04:21
scotthits a pretty old install that I believe started with dapper and is now at gutsy04:23
* ScottK wonders if Bug #8980 might be relevant.04:24
ubotuLaunchpad bug 8980 in netcfg "hostname -f does not return a proper FQDN" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/898004:24
scotthScottK: that got it, reordering to outkast.sjhserv.net outkast got the fqdn working04:26
scotththanks, odd little behavior04:26
nilsonscotth: in hosts?04:27
nilsonYeah mine's set up that way. I saw that it says now too, which I found odd04:27
nilsonI thoght it was a mistake..04:27
scotththough apache is now using as my hostname04:27
scotthbut doing the thing fixes that04:28
scotthway weird04:28
nilsonjnc whats the reason for that switch04:29
kgoetztec/hostname should just be the alias (eg kgoetz), /etc/hosts should have (eg) kgoetz.id.au then kgoetz04:32
highX|HumpyHi, I'm looking for help installing Ubuntu 7.10 onto RAID 005:00
=== highX|Humpy is now known as Humpy
nownotthey ubuntu folks couldnt help me. i want to edit iptables for http, ftp, ssh, and vpn <- if anyone knows how do do vpn. any help?05:43
kgoetzcan you be more specific in your qeustio? ;)05:44
kgoetzeg what aobut iptables do you need to edit?05:44
kgoetzwhy do you need to?05:45
nownottneed to b/c they are wide open right now. and i need to set them up05:45
kgoetzset them up to do what?05:45
nownotti want to shut all ports besides 80, 21, 22 , 1194, and enable what i need to for vpn05:46
kgoetzuse this as an example:05:47
kgoetziptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT05:47
kgoetzthat accepts all packges on interface eth0 goin to port 44305:48
kgoetzand if your opening ssh to teh world, look at this http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/18705:48
kgoetzalso http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/23, if this is a gatway05:49
=== sahafeez is now known as sahafeez_away
nownottso the 443 is for https, the first link is for ssh, i can do 21 from the example you gave me for https. you know anything about the vpn world?05:50
jncnownott: easier solution is get another computer and run Smoothwall distro on it05:50
jncclick that junk with a mouse.05:50
nownottjnc: thanks but id really like to get this working05:51
kgoetznownott: look at openvpn05:54
kgoetzjnc: a (dedicated) gateway might be overkill for his purpose05:54
nownottkgoetz: i have openvpn installed and configed. i cant get traffic to get fowarded believe it was the way i have iptables/firewall setup05:59
nownotti can connect to it just fine just no packet fowarding06:00
kgoetznownott: openvpn? tried looking at the logs? asked #openvpn?06:01
nownottopenvpn was no help what so ever, and logs no havent checked there06:01
kgoetzyou mmight need to turn up the loggin, perhaps rrun the daemon in the forground06:01
nownottkgoetz: i enterd the first rule you gave me for https but it had no effect on my firewall06:14
kgoetznownott: looked at the links i gave you?06:15
kgoetzsetup your firewall like the gateway guide says? (with port forwarding if its a gatway)?06:17
nownottdidnt read that one b/c its not a gateway06:18
kgoetzit will probably have rules you need06:18
kgoetzbut i just realised i didnt ask - how did you test 'no effect' with your firewall?06:18
nownottno effect?06:19
kgoetz14:44 < nownott> kgoetz: i enterd the first rule you gave me for https but it had no effect on my firewall06:20
kgoetzhow did you check that?06:20
nownottsudo iptables -L -v06:20
nownottwell i ended up doing them like this iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT06:29
kgoetzSSH is a tcp based protocol06:30
nownottwell hmm when i saved i see the prerouting that you dold me to put in there06:30
kgoetzvpn will be udp06:30
nownotti have my vpn to use tcp instead06:30
nownottwhat is prerouting06:31
kgoetzyou should read the iptables readme files06:32
kgoetz /usr/share/doc/iptables/06:32
kgoetzrustys explanatio of prerout/postrout etc will be better then mine ;)06:32
nownottso do you know about the vpn stuff i need to foward etc. the tun etc06:33
kgoetzif its a vpn server, you need to allow in the port listed in the vpn config file, if its a client dong worry06:33
nownottya i can connect but like i said i believe it was the port fowarding that was getting me06:34
kgoetzi doubt it tbh. more likely to be your routs/dns are broken06:34
kgoetzbut until you check out the logs and or turn up debug, who knows06:35
nownottkgoetz: you have amin to look at my iptables?06:46
kgoetznownott: not atm, i'm at work :)06:47
RealMurphyHi, i have a brief question about cowbuilder: Is it really possible to build 32bit stuff with it in a 64bit environment?08:26
RealMurphyI tried many variations of arch=i386 in many places and it always goes back to amd64 packages08:26
sorencowbuilder is a variant of pbuilder, right?08:26
sorenYes, it seems so.08:27
sorenRealMurphy: What you need to do is to make sure that the chroot is created as an i386 chroot.08:27
sorenThis is usually achieved by passing --arch i386 to debootstrap.08:28
sorenDue to the way pbuilder accepts options, you need to pass --debootstrapopts --arch --debootstrapopts i386  to pbuilder.08:28
sorenRealMurphy: ...but these questions are actually more suitable for #ubuntu-motu. :)08:28
RealMurphyyes, sorry, was distracted08:32
RealMurphyok, thanks alot - I was mostly overwhelmed by the number of channels available :)08:33

sommerFenix|work: do you just want a higher resolution font?  if so I just add vga=791 to the end of the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.1st19:51
Fenix|workI did that... didn't work19:52
Fenix|workperhaps I did it wrong19:52
Fenix|workI'll look at it in a sec19:52
Fenix|workjust reinstalling19:52
sommeryou could also edit the line from grub before booting... sometimes it's up to your video card if it'll work or not I've noticed19:53

Calin24after upgrading from 7.04 to 7.10 I lost ldap-pam support, everything ldap-nss still works, and config for ldap-pam is still there... any idea's?21:54
neozenhi there all...22:10
neozenneed to upgrade a headless ubuntu-server box to gutsy from feisty22:10
Kamping_KaiserCalin24, i can help per se, but i have pam-ldap working on 7.10 using the example configuration22:10
neozenwas sure there were instructions for this on ubuntu's site.... seem to have disappeared22:11
neozenah... here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading22:12
Calin24it seems to be misconfigured, since my user.log is showing can't reconnect to ldap server, but i'll be darned if i know where 7.10 does the config... i know nss_ldap got rid of needing nss-ldap.conf and nss-ldap.secret but no clue about pam.22:13
Kamping_KaiserCalin24, /etc/ldap.conf22:14
Calin24hrmm should be working then, since nss_ldap is using the same config file, and works...22:15
dendrobatesCalin24: you might need to rename nss-ldap.secret to ldap.secret22:15
dendrobatesCalin24: were you using secret files?  Are you using TLS?22:16
Calin24already done... every config file 7.04 needed is gone, and all that's left is /etc/ldap.conf /etc/ldap.secret and /etc/ldap/ldap.conf22:16
Calin24no to TLS.. just secret files22:17
dendrobatesCalin24: I just scrolled back, it seems you have nss-ldap working fine.22:18
dendrobatesCalin24: if nss works pam should as well.  What are you seeing in the log's regarding pam?22:19
Calin24right.. it's just pam auth that fails22:19
Calin24pam_Oct 23 17:00:39 bowser sudo: pam_ldap: ldap_simple_bind Can't contact LDAP server22:20
dendrobatesCalin24: did you save a copy of your old pam-ldap.conf?22:22
dendrobatesCalin24: the only issue I know of, is the use of URI when doing TLS.  I'd try copying the pam-ldap.conf over ldap.conf.22:23
dendrobatesperhaps there is something specific to your config that was missed in the new debconf scripts.22:24
dendrobatesCalin24: if that fixes it, I'd like to see a diff.22:25
Calin24there an easy way to reboot pam without rebooting? or is it like nss and should auto pickup changes22:31
dendrobatesCalin24: it should be automatic.22:33
Calin24hrmm nope isn't working even with the old pam-ldap.conf ... and just tried samba, it's definately only pam that's missing some sort of config to be working22:39
