Speedy059xsudo apt-get install kubuntu-kde4-desktop and installed VNC - But when I log into the server all I get is a command prompt and a black/white background. Has anyone ever run into this?00:09
ScottKSpeedy059x: Your on Hardy?00:10
ScottKOK.  Well for Jaunty, just use kubuntu-desktop.00:10
Speedy059xI did00:10
Speedy059xsudo apt-get install kubuntu-kde4-desktop00:10
Speedy059xthen I install vnc00:10
Speedy059xI tried installing kubuntu separate from KDE as well00:11
Speedy059xstill the same strange results00:11
ScottKNote the difference between what I said to use and what you said you used.  I doubt it makes a difference, but it's a place to start.00:11
Speedy059xI think it's the same, but regardless I tried both when I installed kubuntu-desktop and kde separatel00:11
ScottKI've never tried VNC, so no idea if it works.00:13
Speedy059xfirst time as well...CentOS it's easy to install but i'm not to familiar with Ubuntu00:14
Speedy059xI thought Ubuntu was more GUI like that CentOS, thought it would be easier ;)00:14

fbc-mxMy ubuntu server on weekends(heavy loads) ocasionally locks up. How can I limit the apache resources? Right now in my apache.conf I have 2 servers with 1000 connections. Should I try trimming it down to 500 connections?02:03
matttfbc-mx: what's your MaxClients set to?02:07
fbc-mxmattt, can't tell right now cuz my machine won't respond to ssh in this state. I've already emailed the host provider to reboot my machine.02:08
fbc-mxmattt, waiting for it to come back on line.02:08
matttfbc-mx: ok ... limit MaxClients, and if you're using MySQL limit max_connections02:08
matttfbc-mx: setting these too high can cause problems like this02:09
fbc-mxok, so I can control resources by controlling both of those parameters.. kewl... can't wait to start optimizing the server.02:09
fbc-mxmattt, I also have to see find out if joomla uses one DB connection per user or uses only one connection.02:10
matttfbc-mx: for some stock standard mysql optimizations, have a look at http://mysqltuner.pl/mysqltuner.pl02:10
matttfbc-mx: not sure, i guess that's if PHP is configured to permit persistent connections?02:11
fenix_branyone has idea? about the error that I am having difficulty02:11
fbc-mxfenix_br,  your samba is configured to pull from an ldap database.. I'm not too familiar with that setup.. I usually do everything from within the smb.conf file.02:13
fbc-mxfenix_br, the few times I've had to do somethign like that I've used ebox... its free and easy to manage samba shares with an ldap database. It creates it all for you..02:14
fbc-mxfenix_br, sudo apt-get install ebox (in case your interested)02:15
fbc-mxfenix_br, has modular plugins for just about everything.02:16
fbc-mxmattt, thanks. this script looks awesome... I'm gonna give it a go when my server comes back up.02:17

quentusrexgnutls can't read some of my openssl generated certs :(04:13

quentusrexbut openssl is already distributed.04:14
quizmefbc-mx k thanks04:14
fbc-mxquizme, np :-)04:15
quentusrexI have generated a 4096 CA key for signing all of my server keys, and gnutls can't handle it...04:15
ScottKThe usual problem is that the openssl isn't GPL compatible so GPL software can't link against it without a special exception.04:15
ScottKI don't know for sure if that's the case here, but that's the usual reason.04:16
quentusrexScottK any idea how to check to see if gnutls can handle the certs?04:23
ScottKNope.  Sorry.  I'd guess review their documentation.04:24

fbc-mxrobertr994, got what you need.06:10
robertr994I may have stumbled on the issue,  hibernation06:10
fbc-mxrobertr994, use this script to optimze youy mysql usage http://mysqltuner.pl/mysqltuner.pl06:11
fbc-mxrobertr994, hib on a server??06:11
fbc-mxrobertr994, my issue was that I had really heavy usage.. I mean like close to 1000 simultaneous users...06:11
robertr994my traffic isnt that high06:12
fbc-mxrobertr994,  if you don't have than, then yes, your prob might be hibernation.06:12
robertr994has to do with the screensaver,  when I go back to the desktop06:12
robertr994drops at that time06:13
fbc-mxrobertr994, your running a gui on your server??06:13
robertr994running a shoutcast server06:13
robertr994and website06:13
robertr994thats all06:14
fbc-mxrobertr994,  shoutcast server should need a client connected to it full time...06:14
robertr994no special programs, I dont even browse the net06:14
robertr994its connected full time06:14
fbc-mxrobertr994, you might want to do a ALT-CTL-F1 and login and type "sudo service gdm stop" see it the server dies after that. if it doesn't then it's an issue with your gui.06:15
robertr994ok I'll try that06:17
fbc-mxrobertr994, as far as the gui is concerned. I guess you should go to preferences>>power managmenet and set everything to NEVER.06:17
robertr994I did that a few minutes ago06:18
robertr994Im new to linux,  been using windows servers for yrs06:18

robertr994ALT-CTL-F1  I'll try after this radio show is over06:20
fbc-mxrobertr994, a rough way to disale hibernation could be to rename /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh to something else then "touch /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh"06:20
fbc-mxrobertr994, to create an empty file. Definitely not an elegant way to do it though.06:21
fbc-mxrobertr994, good luck!06:21
robertr994this runs great as long as Im on it  lol06:22
fbc-mxrobertr994,  here's another more elegant way of doing it through the gconf editor http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=44022506:22
fbc-mxrobertr994, you may not have to reboot with that last solution... just log out and log back in, but I would reboot anyways to remove all doubt.06:23
robertr994ok cool,  thanks06:24
robertr994have a great weekend06:26

jon_high9000I have a question regarding to ubuntu-server ubuntu 9.04.06:28
fbc-mxjon_high9000, OK hit me with it..06:28
jon_high9000fbx-mx: I installed the server portion tonight mainly to setup a mail server. i am a newbie. way i setup the desktop and server  they are on separate partitions.06:30
fbc-mxjon_high9000,  why would you do somethign like that for?06:31
fbc-mxjon_high9000, You can add a gui to the server version if you really wanted to. All you had to do once you had the server version installed was type "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" and it would have done it for you.06:33
jon_high9000fbc-mx: Purpose of the mail server is to retrieve mail from my gmail account using fetchmail dovecot and possibly postfix. main use is mainly for retrieval of email.06:33
fbc-mxjon_high9000, yes but you can't be running both versions at the same time.. you'd either have to boot up as a server or as a desktop version.. If you did that then the server would never be up for the desktop version to retrieve the email from it. Kinda defeating the assumed putpose.06:34
jon_high9000fbc-mx: i read somewhere you can use the sudo -s command and assign the same password using passwd06:36
fbc-mxjon_high9000, I'd back up any data and reinstall it just as a server.. and add the gui so that you can get around it.06:37
jon_high9000fbc-mx: this is to add the server to the desktop06:37
jon_high9000fbc-mx: ok06:37
fbc-mxjon_high9000, yes you can sync the password files from one partition to the other, I still don't get the functionality.06:38
fbc-mxIf you want the best of both worlds as in a server with a gui.. just reinstall it as a server, then add the gui..06:38
fbc-mxjon_high9000, I mean, if you really get used to using the command-line like you really should to control and manage a server, you can remove the ubuntu-desktop package and run an autoremove, and I think it might clean the gui off the server for you.06:39
jon_high9000fbc-mx: as i said earlier, i`m a newbie. just starting out. getting my feet wet as it were.06:41
jon_high9000fbc-mx: been tinkering around trying to setup fetchmail to retrieve my email on gmail06:43
fbc-mxjon_high9000,  They make pretty good books on ubuntu. I was a linux newbie but only a year ago, then I read a bunch on linux and ubuntu books.06:43
jon_high9000fbc-mx that was on ubuntu-desktop however06:44
fbc-mxjon_high9000, why wouldn't you want to retrieve your email with say Thunderbird for example06:44
fbc-mxjon_high9000,  you could put your server in the DMZ of your router and setup DDNS and have gmail forward your mail to your ddns user@ddns-domain.com.06:46
jon_high9000i could. but i get a lot of email and i want to find a faster way to retrieve my mail. mainly so i don`t get cut off by gmail when downloading my email.06:46
fbc-mxjon_high9000, might save you alot of trouble and having to learn to configure dovecot, fetchmail at such an advanced level. You'd only need to learn how to create a mailbox and configure ddns and your router. Much easier that learing to configure mail and mail packages, that's for sure.06:48
jon_high9000fbc-mx: i have a wireless router. wireless part (non-functional)06:48
jon_high9000with ubuntu i mean06:48
fbc-mxjon_high9000, nothing wrong with that. As long as your internet provider assigns a public ip to your router you can pass it along to your machine and program it to act as a full fledged mail server.06:49
fbc-mxjon_high9000,  almost 1am here in Mexico City. A little past my bed time. I hope someone else in the channel can pick up where I left off.  Good luck.06:52
jon_high9000no prob. thanks for your hlep06:52

Pirate_HunterTeLLuS, sorry i dont get how to go about changing/fixing the ownership through cli, how would i go about doing so15:36
Pirate_Hunterwhat ownership does it need15:36
mobi-sheepIf it's in /etc/  It should be owned by root.  My guess.15:38
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: What does "sudo ls -l /etc/bind/named.conf" say?15:40
Pirate_Hunter-rw-r--r-- 1 bind bind 907 2009-01-08 01:28 /etc/bind/named.conf15:41
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, -rw-r--r-- 1 bind bind 907 2009-01-08 01:28 /etc/bind/named.conf15:42
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: Try "sudo chown root:root /etc/bind/named.conf"  (I never messed around with server stuffs before).15:44
Pirate_Hunternot sure but based on this tutorial, http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu8.04-lts-p4, i think bind9 isnt supposed to run as root but unprivildge to the user running it, if thats the case would i just choose the users i want it to run as because root would be automatic. grrr this was supposed to make setting a server easy15:46
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: sudo ls -l /etc/bind/* --> Bunch of files owned by bind bind?15:46
Pirate_Hunteryeah they are are all owned by bind:bind maybe i should create that group and add myself in it that could work15:48
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, i just followed the tut the way they wrote it didnt think bind:bind an actual group that they might have will try making it15:49
mobi-sheep"groups" will display the groups you're in.15:49
mobi-sheepJust because the site have "how to" in the name does not necessarily mean they know how to.15:51
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, yah but i wouldve expect that they would mention something i have just added root and my user to that bind group which already existed will see how things go now15:55
Pirate_Huntergrrrrr this was supposed to be an easy to follow tut15:55
mobi-sheepGonna avoid HowToForge now? :)15:57
mobi-sheepWell.  Good luck either way.15:59
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, hahahaha yeah for sure, i would advise it, still it wont start im in that group yet permission is still denied hmmmm15:59
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: Try root.16:00
mobi-sheepYou can change back to bind:bind later.16:00
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, yah will do so will mess with this might break it even more grrrr16:00
mobi-sheepThe nice people here probably are giggling at the moment.16:00
Pirate_Hunteryah most likely except why the **** is /etc/bind freaking root:root when it is a symlink I dont get how things like that can happen16:03
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, done well that was a new experience, not one much enjoyed no wonder most stay with the desktop16:12
mobi-sheepWhat did you do to resolve it?16:12
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: Servers -- Not something that everybody would need.  Home server is a nice bonus though.16:12
Pirate_Huntermobi-sheep, the permission is now correct just need to find out why it isn't working i bet if i was using desktop this woulve been quick still will pay-off in the end, I hope 0.o'16:14
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: Desktop == No GUI.  And you increase your l33t points.16:14
mobi-sheepPirate_Hunter: I used XBMC on my home server though.  Ridiculously awesome.16:15
