edgyHi, I am using Ubuntu 8.04.1 hardy and  logwatch --mailto me@mysite.com just prints to screen. I test postfix and it's working already06:03
kgoetzedgy: not sure i understand your question06:04
edgykgoetz: logwatch is a log analyzer and reporter that when invoked like this: logwatch --mailto me@gmail.com should send the report to me@gmail.com06:05
edgyinstead of sending the report by email, it prints it to stdout instead!06:06

edgymy system is upgraded from a previous version and not a fresh installation, so what do you think the problem can be?06:09
kgoetzlogwatch_7.3.6-1ubuntu1_all.deb is the package i used06:09
kgoetzsome configuration issue06:09
edgykgoetz: but i tried --mailto from the command instead of depending on logwatch.conf to troubleshoot it. Shouldn't it work whatever values in config files is, beside I reinstalled logwatch so it's the default configs06:11

kaushalI have installed tomcat 5.5.25 on Ubuntu 8.0416:57
kaushalthe issue is that it doesnot get logged16:58
kaushalin catalina.out file16:58
kaushalits really really annoying16:58
sorenKoon: ^^16:58
Koonsoren: i'm on it :)16:58
Koonkaushal: what are you using as a JVM ?16:59
Koonkaushal: the default one (gcj) ?16:59
Koonkaushal: or did you install something else?16:59
Koon(Sun's JDK, openJDK...)16:59
lagasoren: i talked to the vbox guys. there is no nice way to create those VM description files. VBoxManage can only register empty xml files. we could cobble together a working file from the examples we have, but it's not exactly supported by sun/virtualbox. and there is no way of importing them17:00
Koonkaushal: I seem to remember the logging issue as gcj-specific17:01
sorenHey, what we're doing with vmware isn't supported either. It could fall apart at any given time.17:01
Koonkaushal: please check that it's really using sun's jvm17:01
lagasoren: right. they're working on a better interface for that kind of stuff.17:01
Koonkaushal: that said, an update for hardy is in the pipe17:01
kaushalKoon, so whats the workaround17:01
Koonso that it works with openjdk17:02
lagasoren: we *could* call VBoxManage to create the VM, but we don't necessarily want the VM to be registered for the user who built them17:02
sorenlaga: What I'm saying is: I don't give a hoot if creating the xml isn't supported. Let's just do it anyway if that's what works.17:02
lagasoren: yes, but that still doesn't solve the problem that you can't import the XML.17:03
Koonkaushal: at that point the workaround would be to install sun-java6-jdk and run without specific JAVA_HOME (the init script should pick up sun's jdk)17:03
sorenlaga: We've not promised anyone that it'll work to any degree. It's a best effort thing.17:03
Koonin a few days the workaround woulfd be to install openjdk-6-jre17:03
lagasoren: ah, so it's not a "people will bi... complain to canonical if it doesn't work"?17:03
ivoksScottK: did you get my clamav patch?17:03
Koonsince the init script would support running that17:03
sorenlaga: If we think it's really and issue, and vmbuilder goes to main, I can just split out the vbox plugin into a separate package. No biggie.17:04
Koonkaushal: see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tomcat5.5/+bug/25100417:04
uvirtbotLaunchpad bug 251004 in tomcat5.5 "Tomcat 5.5 produces no logs when run with gcj" [Undecided,Incomplete]17:04
Koonkaushal: running with TOMCAT5_SECURITY=no is also a workaround (if your environement is not very exposed)17:05
lagasoren: still, how it's useful if you can't import that piece of xml?17:05
* Koon leaves for a couple of hours17:05
sorenlaga: Just because they don't offer a supported way of doing it, doesn't mean there isn't a way we can do it.17:06
sorenlaga: Last I worked with virtualbox they had all-xml configuration files.17:07
sorenlaga: ...which isn't terribly difficult to change programmatically.17:08
=== hessml|away|away is now known as hessml|away
soren..by design, even.17:08
lagayeah. it's easy to create an xml file describing the VM itself. but it's not that easy to add it to virtualbox, because you need to mangle the main virtualbox configuration file.17:09
sorenI'm quite sure VMWare doesn't support whipping up vmdk with qemu-img and handcrafting .vmx files. We do that anyway. *shrug*17:09
lagadoes u-v-b actually import other VMs?17:09
sorenlaga: I don't understand the question.17:09
lagasoren: as in, "creates .vmx and feeds it to vmware"17:10
lagasoren: Yes. but in virtualbox, there is no nice button to import that piece of XML generated by u-v-b. nothing.17:10
sorenlaga: I realise.17:10
sorenlaga: Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's how I remember it:17:11
sorenIt has a main config, which refers by uuid to a set of vm's.17:11
sorenEach vm has a separate XML file, which in turn refers to some disk images, identified by uuid.17:11
sorenThese disk images have a separate XML file pointing at the disk images.17:11
sorenWhat's to stop us from whipping up the disk xml, vm xml, and add the vm to the main xml?17:12
sorenFrom where I'm sitting, it seems the answer is: Not a thing.17:12
sorenThis is all Linux and even free software. It can't hide stuff from us, even if it wanted to. We can just go and see what it would do itself and replicate that.17:13
lagaindeed, not a problem. but is that useful? do we *want* to add VMs directly to virtualbox?17:13
sorenWhat's the alternative?17:13
sorenIf you say it doesn't even have a button to import anything.17:14
lagaif we want to just add a VM to virtualbox, we can use VBoxManage. that's a lot easier.17:14
lagasoren: it's a completely different thing from what u-v-m does not17:14
sorenI don't follow.17:14
lagasoren: it's a completely different thing from what u-v-m does currently17:14
lagasorry, i'm tired.17:14
sorenDoes VBoxManage provide hooks to do this or not?17:14
lagaif you tell it to make a vmware VM, it gives you a .vmdk file and a .vmx file. it does not import the VM into vmware.17:15
sorenNot at the moment, no.17:15
soren..but there's not reason it couldn't.17:15
lagasoren: VBoxManage lets you import a VM into virtualbox. yes.17:15
lagaalright, if that's actually desired behavior, then let's go for it17:15
lagait'd be neat to have an option not to do that, though.17:16
sorenlaga: I'm missing something. Clearly.17:16
soren16:00:45 < ~laga> soren: i talked to the vbox guys. there is no nice way to create those VM description files. VBoxManage can only register empty xml files. we could cobble  together a working file from the examples we have, but it's not exactly supported by sun/virtualbox. and there is no way of importing them17:16
sorenCan you import a VM or can't you?17:16
maswanugh. having a custom nfs server with a custom portmap kind of sucks.17:16
lagasoren: you can talk directly to VBoxManage and tell it to create a VM. it *might* be possible to use "VBoxManage registervm <filename>" to import a VM, but i was told by a vbox developer that it only accepts empty files.17:18
lagafor whatever reason.17:18
lagawe're talking about two different things, though.17:18
sorenHave you ever actually used ubuntu-vm-builder?17:18
sorendo you understand what it does?17:18
* soren doesn't see the point of importing an empty file, though17:19
lagaright now, u-v-b does one thing (for me): it creates a VM which i can import into my VM application, eg vmware. that's just not going to work for virtualbox *right* now (provided the 'empty file' thing is true)17:20
lagawhat you are talking about is immediately registering the VM on the current system, which is a different thing.17:20
lagaand yes, i have used ubuntu-vm-builder :)17:20
ScottKivoks: I did.  I haven't had time to look at it yet thought.17:21
kirklandmathiaz: hey17:21
kirklandmathiaz: okay, i tested using qcow17:21
laga.. and in the former case, i can just put the VM on my usb drive and use it on another computer.17:21
kirklandmathiaz: i actually didn't have any problem17:21
lagaimporting is not really useful in that use case.17:21
kirklandmathiaz: but i did think of something else....17:21
sorenlaga: The point of actually deploying is this:17:21
mathiazkirkland: qcow or qcow2 ?17:21
sorenlaga: Well, there's nothing else we can do really, is there?17:22
sorenlaga: Anything short of that doesn't help you one bit.17:22
sorenlaga: Sure, we can add a --no-deploy option to the vbox plugin if that makes you happy, but I don't see the point.17:22
mathiazkirkland: http://paste.ubuntu.com/52512/ <- this is what is printed in dmesg17:23
sorenlaga: If you don't actually deploy it (add it to the hypervisor) you're left with something that you can't import anyway, which seems rather pointless to me.17:23
mathiazkirkland: when kvm segfaults (or at least the guest dies)17:23
lagasoren: yes. my point is that it's different from the current behavior (as I see it in hardy). so, it'd be sensible to use an extra option, eg --register-with-vbox.17:23
kirklandmathiaz: when you created the partitions, did you mark them "Bootable" ?17:23
mathiazkirkland: yes17:23
lagasoren: you can import it by adding the .vmdk as a disk and creating a new VM, but it's not as neatly integrated as with vmware and .vmx17:23
kirklandmathiaz: that's the problem17:23
sorenlaga: Yes, the current behaviour in hardy for vbox is: break and fall apart in spectacular ways.17:23
sorenlaga: ...also not very useful :)17:24
mathiazkirkland: because I want to be able to boot from RAID17:24
kirklandmathiaz: yeah, well, that causes seg faults17:24
lagasoren: and for intrepid, it will be "futz with my Virtualbox config and possibly break it"? :(17:24
kirklandmathiaz: i might have a bug on that one open already, i'll look17:24
sorenlaga: For intrepid it says: I don't know what vbox is. Go away.17:24
lagasoren: you get the point.17:24
mathiazkirkland: ok - so how does this impact the test case for booting from degraded raid ?17:25
sorenlaga: But sure, we can add a --no-deploy option if you really think that's useful.17:25
ivoksScottK: it's a very small contribution - an on-liner :)17:25
* ivoks had way too much coffe today :(17:25
sorenlaga: I believe the sensible thing to do, though, is to add it to vbox.17:25
lagasoren: users will pull their hair out in spectacular ways if the vbox plugin behaves completely different from the vmware plugin. if you deploy automatically, then the vmware images should also be added automagically to the vmware hypervisor.17:25
sorenlaga: Sure.17:25
sorenlaga: It's just not been implemented yet.17:26
sorenlaga: In part because I never bothered to figure out how.17:26
kirklandmathiaz: just don't mark the individual /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 bootable ...  rather, /dev/md0 will be made bootable17:27
mathiazkirkland: allright - I'll try that17:27
lagaalright. i guess now i knew what that "deploy" thing in the wiki meant. actually adding a .vmdk file to vbox is not hard. i'll compile some information for you then17:27
kirklandmathiaz: i'll talk to cjwatson about this one17:27
mathiazkirkland: great - thanks for the help.17:27
