Kludge^WalesUKaye. been playing about with a few things today, and just want to perfect a working installation of something :) Just playing with different window managers, as WINE just under X looks a bit weird00:23
Kludge^WalesUKdeluge seemed quite nice, but out of all the clients rTorrent and trasmission are the most stubborn bastards00:23
ScottKKludge^WalesUK: If you can get to the point where you can tell that the transmission backport I did for you at least basically works, I can get it published as an official backport.00:26
Kludge^WalesUKhmm. no idea quite what that means, but i assume its a good thing =)00:27

piv_hello all,03:00
piv_i have a dell poweredge that will not seem to rebuild a drive. I hot swapped one, but it will not build it03:01
piv_is there something i can do without rebooting ?03:01
cmdlnwhat kind of raid is it?03:02
cmdlnlsi something or other03:03
cmdlnId try using the megaraid tools03:03
piv_I think raid 503:07
piv_Has 5 drives anyway ( i know that isn't what it means)03:08
piv_i don't know what perc or lsi are, are they RAID controllers? how would i find out?03:08
cmdlnfigure out what raid card you have03:09
cmdlni havent worked with those cards much .... but you might need to load mptsas, and mptctl03:09
cmdlnthen install mpt-status and lsiutil03:09
piv_RAID bus controller: American Megatrends Inc. MegaRAID (rev 20)03:22
piv_that was from lspci03:22
cmdlnyeh try installing mpt-status03:22
cmdlni think it will tell you how many controllers are there03:22
cmdlnthat it can work with at least03:22
cmdlnthen find lsiutils, you can prolly use that to get the raid rebuilding03:23
piv_ok, setting up mpt-status gave me an error that mptctl module is missing, is that a kernel mod?03:24
cmdlnyou can just try to modprobe it03:26
cmdlnany pam gurus around?03:27
piv_modprobe worked03:29
cmdlnnow try mpt-status03:30
piv_ioctl: no such device03:33
cmdlnmaybe that card needs a different tool03:37
cmdlnnot sure03:37
piv_does not seem to be a lsiutil package03:38
piv_cmdln: where is a good place to look for info on this?03:40
piv_google just points me to threads about how others have the same problem03:40
cmdlnlsiutil isnt in the repositories to my knowledge03:40
cmdlnive used it on a dell server once before03:40
cmdlnif you find out the model of the raid card you will be closer03:41
cmdlnpoke around lsi.com03:41
cmdlnmight be able to find something there03:41
cmdlnjust depends on what card you have03:41
piv_what am i looking for, how to find out what card i have?03:42
cmdlni suppose03:42
cmdlnperhaps you can get the specifics from dell03:42

^Diablo^question: is there a guide for getting my ubuntu server too work smooth, as when i add a user they get email, vhost ftp, and /home/user/www, this is my 3th installation this week, and i really have trouble finding the answers im looking for @ forums10:41
jords_^Diablo^: I don't know of such a guide, but for ftp I find vsftpd with the local_enable option works well. If you add files to /etc/skel, they will be copied into any new user's directory10:57
uvirtbotjords_: Error: "Diablo^:" is not a valid command.10:57
jords_What do you want to use /home/user/www for? If you want public html, (ie people can access files in /home/user/public_html with www.yourdomain.com/~user , then theres a apache module to do it10:58
jords_Not sure about email, I use google apps for all mine10:59
^Diablo^okey ty ill try that11:04
^Diablo^i made /home/user/public_html, but no adress there, do i need too setup apache/module or sometihng?11:14
^Diablo^apache module how where what? =), im sorry im completly new on this, i just followed howto, and didnt get what i wanted11:17
Deepsif you look in /etc/apache2/mods-available11:18
Deepsyou should see userdir.conf and userdir.load11:18
Deepscreate links to those in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled and reload apache11:18
Deepsyou can modify them, but the default is to look in /home/*/public_html11:19
Deepsand that space can be accessed through a broswer by accessing http://yourserver/~username11:19
^Diablo^ah okey, how do i create a link?, or is it the a2emodenable thing?11:19
Deepsoh, nice, yes, you can use a2enmod11:20

Deepsso alter the permissions on the directory, and/or put in an index file if you dont have the autoindex module enabled to create automatic directory listings in the place of an index file11:23
Deeps755 is usually a safe bet11:23

Deepsrestarted apache?11:26

exalt_Deeps, I enabled it, but the vpn client still can't ping another machine11:47
Deepsoh, hehe, does the other machine know where to route the packets back to?11:47
Deepsi'm guessing your vpn server isn't the default router for the other clients on the network11:49
Deepsyou probably want to either update all the other clients to know that the vpn subnet goes to it11:49
Deepsor update the router to know that the subnet goes to the vpn server11:49
exalt_deeps, thank you , I understand  :)11:49

jdstrandnealmcb: how about: 'The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' or 'iptables' commands (see https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/serverguide/C/firewall.html), or ...'14:24
ubottuUbuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).14:33

nealmcbjdstrand, sommer - is one of you willing to put up a generic page somewhere for ufw?15:38
ahasenackcpu usage in virt-manager is very low, as is the host cpu (clocked down to 800MHz, so the virtual machine is not even calling for more cpu)15:38
ahasenackinteresting, in the command line I cannot boot the dapper iso, but from the machine created with virt-manager I can15:40

jdstrandnealmcb, sommer: I certainly like the idea of a generic page, but not sure how different it would be from the one in the server guide15:42
ahasenackfwiw, running it manually in the command line (kvm -hda ...) is *much* faster15:47
nealmcbjdstrand: yeah - it wouldn't be much different now, but over time it would be the generic place for people to go and see differences over time, could be referred to from the README, etc.15:49
