twbWhere can I read about the differences between the linux-image-server and linux-image-generic packages?01:13
twb"server" is rather more nebulous than the -march variations I'm used to under Debian.01:13
maxbtwb: -server vs. -generic is more about the selection of kernel config options, than the cpu architecture01:15
maxbThings like is the scheduler tuned for desktop responsiveness, or server throughput01:15
twbmaxb: indeed; so where can I read about who decides what things to tweak, and how?01:21
maxbwho? The kernel team, I suppose. What exactly? Not sure, though you could always resort to diffing the relevant files in the source package01:22
twbI was hoping there'd be a policy document (say, in the wiki) about it.01:24
ameliethanks jmarsden|work, but the thing is i don't know how to use the fsck or mount a partition; i'm pretty newbie on this01:26
jmarsden|workamelie: Are you the administrator of a machine running Ubuntu Server?01:26
maxbtwb: Well, you could hop on #ubuntu-kernel, ask, and hang around for a while.01:27
jmarsden|workOK.  Is the filesystem on /dev/md9 mounted now, or not (can you get at the files on it)?01:28
ameliei don't know01:28
ameliei just hit control D to boot up normally01:28
jmarsden|workOK, open up a Terminal and in it do      mount | grep md9    and tell me what it displays01:30
twbmaxb: thanks.01:33
amelie"/dev/md9 on /home type ext3 (rw,relatime)"01:37
ameliei suppose it means is mounted right?01:38
jmarsden|workOK, so it is mounted.  We need to undo that so we can fix it... but it is your /home partition, which could make life fun... are there other users currently logged into or accessing this server right now.01:38
jmarsden|workOr just you?01:38
jmarsden|work(Basically, it may be simplest to reboot it to the point where it shows the error and drops you into a recovery shell... but that will affect any other users!01:40
jmarsden|workamelie: I only have about 15 minutes before I have to leave here... is it OK with you if we reboot your server as part of fixing this issue??01:44
ameliewell, you mean restart the computer completely?01:46
ameliei don't know to use the fsck command01:46
jmarsden|workYes; once we restart and you get to where you did ctrl-D last time, I can help with the fsck part...01:47
ameliehow do i do that?01:48
amelielog as another user?01:48
jmarsden|work?  You don't know how to restart your server??  Something feels odd here.01:48
ameliei told you01:48
ameliei'm a newbie....01:48
jmarsden|workThen who configured the server with software RAID...?01:49
jmarsden|workOK... if you are sure you are the only user using the server, do     sudo shutdown -r now01:49
ameliei just format 4 partitions on each disk as "raid" and later tied each one with the menu01:49
amelieand asign the mount points and system type01:50
jmarsden|workOh... she was IRCing from the server itself?!  OOPS.01:51
ameliejmarsden|work: I made the fsck02:18
amelieand hit the default options02:18
ameliethe /dev/md9, ended with errors I think02:18
ameliewhe the system restarted, it says the same thing about unclean shutdown, but with partition md702:19
ameliethen, the automated fsck, worked02:20
amelieand reboot normally02:20
ameliei don't know if is working good now...02:20

SmokeyDhey people. Does anyone have tips for software I can use to monitor the amount of bandwidth consumed by postfix,dovecot and apache2 all running on the same machine, split up per domain name?12:52
SmokeyDI am thinking of doing it with iptables, but I don't know if iptables can distinguish between the virtual domainnames of smtp and pop3/imap traffic12:54
sorenIt can't.12:56
SmokeyDsoren: ok, you have any other recommendations?12:56
SmokeyDor maybe monitor web traffic through iptables and other data through other means12:56
sorenThe web traffic case is clearly the simplest. Apache logs the size of each request and can be told to log to separate files for each domain.12:57
sorenNo need to get iptables involved.12:57
SmokeyDsoren: :)12:57
SmokeyDgood one12:57
sorenThe others are much more difficult.12:57
sorenNeither postfix nor dovecot log sizes of requests.12:58
sorenFor dovecot you also might have very, very long-lived connections, which makes it quite difficult.12:58
lamontsoren: postfix does log sizes12:58
sorenlamont: Of SMTP sessions?12:58
sorenlamont: ...or message sizes?12:58
lamontthough you also get long-lived connections with connection caching now...12:59
lamontmessage sizes12:59
lamontOTOH, message size should roughly correlate to session size.  with a fudgefactor for turning DATA into $SESSION12:59
sorenAlso, what if a message is addressed for foo@example.com, but is delivered to foo@example2.com? Who should this count against?13:00
SmokeyDlamont: yes indeed, I can assume that since pop3 is mainly used, twice DATA=$SESSION (once arriving through postfix, once downloading through dovecot pop3)13:01
sorenLogging of e-mail traffic like this is much less clear-cut.13:01
sorenSmokeyD: Unless they decide to keep mail on the server.13:01
SmokeyDsoren: indeed13:02
SmokeyDbut I can assume they don't I think. I am not talking about a major commercial hoster, just a few domainnames of people I know well and trust13:02
sorenIf that's the case, why are you monitoring this?13:10
chimpWhen connecting to a webserver via its ip address, is it possible to pass it the host name you intend to use externally so that it sends you to the correct apache virtual webserver?13:43
sommer_chimp: sure, just add the hostname to your /etc/hosts file13:44

DogWaterDoes anyone know of any single command way to remove all partitions in Ubuntu?14:44
domasthat sure must be single command14:44
frippzDogWater: I think you'll have to use fdisk for that (no single command as far as I know, unless you get someone to write a script for you :P)15:01
sorenDogWater: Just nuke the partition table?15:06
domasrandom dd could work, yes :)15:06
sorenDogWater: "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nameofthedevice bs=512 count=1"15:06
sorenSounds like a horrible idea, though.15:06

alexrussellHi folks. I've recently installed a new (64 bit) Ubuntu Hardy Server and did the LAMP option. Thsi has installed PHP as an apache module (as far as I can tell), but I want to install PEAR. If I do a 'sudo apt-get install php-pear' it talks about wanting to install php5-cli. While I'm happy to do so, will this ruin the default LAMP set-up (or even not give my non-cli php5 installation no access to PEAR which was my original intention in15:25
alexrussellthe first place)? Also, I hear if one uses the cli version of php with apache, files need execute permission. Is this true and if so I'd like to avoid this situation as chmodding all php files to +x is a pain when the server's being used on a samba network...15:25
alexrussell...sorry for the big lump of text there15:25
_rubenphp-cli is just an addition to the apache modules .. you can have apache use the php modules and also have the php commandline tool installed at the same time15:26
_rubeniow: installing pear wont break your php+apache config15:26
_rubenunless something freaky happens15:26
alexrussellexcellent, thanks15:26
axisyscan I install ubuntu 64bit server on T1000 (sun4v) ?15:44
axisyscan I install the 8.10? it shows 7.10 certified15:46
jrwrenif you can find a version for the ultrasparc T1 processor.15:47
axisysjrwren: partners/sun shows 7.10 as the latest certified for t100015:48
axisysi wonder if i can install 8.1015:48
axisysofcourse i can give it a try.. but wondering if anyone did it15:48
jrwren7.10 looks like the last sparc release15:49
jrwreni'm just browsing here: http://osmirrors.cerias.purdue.edu/pub/ubuntu-releases/15:49
ScottK7.10 was the last release that had official Canonical support for Sparc.  I know people who use the later releases.15:49
jrwrennotice how in teh 7.10 directory there is a "sparc" iso image.15:49
jrwrenbut 8.04 there is not.15:49
ScottKIt was moved to ports.15:49
ScottKThere's a different URL.15:49
ScottKThey aren't (I don't think) mirrored so look at ports.ubuntu.com (IIRC).15:50
binspaceIs there an ubuntu universe/multiverse repository on ec2?16:02
Deeepsumm, i've not used ec2 before, but surely you just add them to your sources.list like anywhere else?16:03
binspaceYeah, I was just wondering if there was a public mirror. The reason is to make installs/updates faster.16:06
axisys ScottK: i dont see the iso in ports.ubuntu.com16:27
ScottKI'm not sure then.16:27
axisysi see mini.iso, netboot, cdrom16:28
axisysthey are as recent as jan 24 200916:28
ScottKI except the mini.iso would be enough to get a booting system, but i don't know.16:28
ScottKThose will be for Jaunty then.16:29
axisysi saw an article on how to install using mini.iso and netboot..16:29
ScottKThere was a period where CD builds for ports weren't happening, so that may be why you don't see them.16:29
axisyscan't find it now.. the how to16:29
lionelaxisys: you should find what you want on http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/16:30

mathiazsoren: dendrobates- told me there was a need to come up with a PKI infrastructure for your cloud work16:59

dendrobates-ha, soren document that goes against his religion.17:00
mathiazsoren: how does it work from the client side?17:01
dendrobates-right now certificates are ssh'd around by a shell script17:01

dendrobates-mathiaz: I'm not sure how far we will get into this this release, but be prepared to talk to the euacalyptus team next week,17:02
mathiazdendrobates-: support for rfc 4523 is there17:02
mathiazdendrobates-: which means we should be able to store all of the certificates in an ldap tree directly17:03
mathiazdendrobates-: ok- is there at least somewhere I can look at to understand how certificates are used in the overall architecture?17:04
dendrobates-mathiaz: now all they have to do is be able to get them out.17:04
dendrobates-mathiaz: I can give you an email addess to send a request to.17:05
mathiazdendrobates-: I guess that would already be better than digging in the code17:06
dendrobates-mathiaz: I'm sure they have docs.17:06

ivoksnetwork is up after local filesystems are mounted20:07

sektor1952what's the best way to installing gnome without the extra fluff like kernels, bluetooth etc22:45
sektor1952I would like to install gnome to make it easier build some stuff out but aptitude install ubuntu-desktop installs way too much22:47
Kamping_Kaisertry gnome-desktop-environment or gnome-desktop. (however, i feel your question is somewhat OT for here)22:49
sektor1952well I installed ubuntu server from iso22:49
ScottKAs soon as you say Gnome, it's OT here.  Doesn't matter what you installed.22:50
sektor1952my apologies22:51
binspaceHello, I need some help with debconf with mysql-5.0. It doesn't seem to work.22:52
binspaceI've tried echo "mysql-server mysql-server/root_password select" | sudo debconf-set-selections22:52
binspaceand echo "mysql-server-5.0 mysql-server/root_password password password" | sudo debconf-set-selections22:53
binspaceand I still get prompted22:53
binspaceerichammond: Hey Eric, can I pick your brain for a bit?22:53
erichammondbinspace: If you ask questions I might be one of the people who answers :)22:57
erichammondbinspace: If it relates to EC2 you might find a wider variety of experts on #ubuntu-ec2 and ##aws22:58
binspaceok, thanks22:58

binspace*sigh* Ubuntu is driving me crazy23:06
binspaceOk. I found the solution. I was doing apt-get install mysql-server23:18
binspaceI needed to do apt-get install mysql-server-5.023:18
rgottenhas anybody good experience with software raid23:19
* ogra points binspace to man debconf and the fset command (with seen = true) to avoind questions after preseeding23:20
binspaceogra: Honestly I was staring at man debconf, and its pretty anemic. I don't understand what you mean by fset and seen = true. I know that the default answer is to RTFM, but TMFS (the manual fucking sucks).23:23
binspaceAnd relevant examples go much further than mountains of configuration documentation. Simply put the signal to noise ratio of man pages tends to be tiny.23:26
ograbinspace, echo -e "set mysql-server/root_password select\nfset mysql-server/root_password seen true" | debconf-communicate mysql-server23:37
ograthat line would tell debconf to never ask that question again23:38
ograi agree that man debconf isnt actually of much help if you want to do preseeding ... man 7 debconf is though23:40
binspaceogra: Dude. You are a force of nature :-) Thanks alot.23:41
binspaceI noticed that man debconf-devel has the fset info23:41
ograoh, its actually debconf-devel :)23:41
ogranot debconf23:42
binspaceyeah. Its a weird naming convention. I figured it was for people hacking on debconf. I guess the rule is follow the see also links.23:43
