ForeverSmurfI am attempting to install ubuntu on a remote server for the first time14:41
ForeverSmurfI have followed the following guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/OverSSH14:42
ForeverSmurfit is an athlon 3800 server with 1GB of ram14:42
ForeverSmurfI choose to use the debootstrap_1.0.13~jaunty1_all.deb bootstrap package14:42
ForeverSmurfimo everything is installed correctly14:42
ForeverSmurf I have installed grub too which was error free14:43
ForeverSmurfhowever, the server refuses to boot14:43
ForeverSmurfI am attempting to get serial consol output from grub but again... no luck14:43
ForeverSmurfI'm at a loss as to what to do next14:43
ForeverSmurfI do have a question: what is the difference between debootstrap-udeb_1.0.13~jaunty1_all.udeb and debootstrap_1.0.13~jaunty1_all.deb14:44
ForeverSmurfserial console output is enabled on the kernel command line too14:44
Sam-I-Amyou sure grub is pointing to the right place?14:47
Sam-I-Amdoes grub even come up?14:47
ForeverSmurfno.... I can't see it from the serial console14:47
ForeverSmurfI added those 2 lines    'serial --unit=0.....' and 'terminal --timeout=....' from the http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Remote-Serial-Console-HOWTO/configure-kernel-grub.html guide to the top of grub.conf14:48
ForeverSmurfI installed grub using14:48
ForeverSmurfroot (hd0,0)14:48
ForeverSmurfsetup (hd0)14:48
ForeverSmurfthe /dev/sda hard drive IS bootable14:49
ForeverSmurfI also installed grub on the other (unused hard drive)14:49
ForeverSmurfroot (hd1,0)14:49
ForeverSmurfsetup (hd1)14:49
ForeverSmurfthe fact that I get nothing on the remote serial console for both grub and the kernel makes it more likely to be a grub/boot issue14:50
ForeverSmurfthis is my second attempt btw14:50
ForeverSmurfthe first one went smoothly too14:50
ForeverSmurfjust didn't fucking boot ;-)14:50
Sam-I-Amwell, if grub is configured for serial... and you're not seeing any output... i wonder if its even loading grub at all14:50
Sam-I-Ammight be confused with more than one disk14:50
ForeverSmurfyes, that's my opinion14:50
ForeverSmurfis it worth trying lilo?14:51
ForeverSmurfis it supported?14:51
Sam-I-Amlilo might work... although its extremely difficult to debug anything when you can't see it14:51
ForeverSmurfor is there some kind of futher testing I could do with grub14:51
ForeverSmurfmy partition layout is simple14:52
Sam-I-Amwell, if you had serial output that'd be good14:52
Sam-I-Amso grub is on the mbr, right?14:52
ForeverSmurf  /dev/sda1 is '/'14:52
ForeverSmurf   /dev/sda2 is swap14:53
ForeverSmurfsetup (hd0) installs grub on the mbr right?14:53
Sam-I-Amas long as hd0 is mapped to sda :)14:53
ForeverSmurfyes  I also type device (hd0) /dev/sda14:53
ForeverSmurfand device (hd1) /dev/sdb14:54
ForeverSmurfis there some way of displaying the mbr14:54
ForeverSmurfto check it14:54
Sam-I-Amare you in the system?14:54
Sam-I-Amyou can dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 ... that'll get your MBR14:55
Sam-I-Amit wont particularly be interesting, but it might say 'grub' somewhere14:55
ForeverSmurfit's rebooting into the recovery system14:56
Sam-I-Amso this thing has serial but no vga?14:57
ForeverSmurfit's a remove rack server I assume14:57
ForeverSmurfwith www.1and1.com14:57
Sam-I-Amso how are you getting serial output?14:57
Sam-I-Amterminal server?14:57
ForeverSmurfok... I am in14:57
Sam-I-Ami mean, how are they getting serial output to you?14:58
Sam-I-Amit worked enough to install, right?14:58
ForeverSmurfconsole=tty0 console=ttyS0,57600 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_size=235280 initrd=linux/rescue32-2.6-sarge.gz pw=$1$6HXoFCFz$njvZtuCPeayMCyNClcorl/ tz=Europe/London root=/dev/ram0 rw BOOT_IMAGE=linux/kernel32-2.614:58
ForeverSmurfthat is the /proc/cmdline of rescue system14:58
ForeverSmurfso the important lines here are console=tty0 console=ttyS0,5760014:59
ForeverSmurfwhich is what I added to my grub.conf file14:59
ForeverSmurfI also enabled the serial output directly from grub itself14:59
Sam-I-Amgrub does serial at 57600?14:59
ForeverSmurfI think it can do15:00
ForeverSmurfnot sure15:00
ForeverSmurfthere is an option called serial to grub15:00
Sam-I-Amwell, if whatever contraption your provider is using to forward is using 57600, then grub needs to use 57600, otherwise you wont see anything... or it'll be junk15:00
ForeverSmurfI am not seeing anything at all15:01
Sam-I-Amdo you have a --speed after the serial directive in grub?15:01
ForeverSmurfyes.... I specified serial --unit=0 --speed=57600 --word=o --parity=no --stop=115:01
ForeverSmurfdoes that look good?15:02
Sam-I-Amwhats --word=o ?15:02
Sam-I-Amshould be 815:02
ForeverSmurfah, I'll change it15:03
Sam-I-Amor just leave it out15:03
Sam-I-Amjust having --speed=57600 should work15:03
Sam-I-Amshould default to 8N115:04
ForeverSmurfis it safe to omit --unit=015:05
ForeverSmurfis that also default?15:05
Sam-I-Amyou need that, if you're using whatever the system thinks is com115:06
ForeverSmurf--parity=no --stop=115:07
ForeverSmurfshould I remove them too?15:07
Sam-I-Amyou can leave those out15:07
ForeverSmurfI'll try another boot15:07
ForeverSmurfsee if I get anything15:07
Sam-I-Ammake sure you write grub's config out :)15:08
ForeverSmurfthe line 'terminal serial'   is correct too right?15:08
Sam-I-Amterminal serial?15:08
ForeverSmurfthat is my entire grub config15:08
ForeverSmurfoh wait15:09
ForeverSmurfcut some off15:09
Sam-I-Amthe serial stuff looks ok15:09
ForeverSmurfoh, I forgot I tried with raid this second time around15:10
ForeverSmurfthat's why I have two entries15:10
Sam-I-Amwell, the serial stuff should be fixed... hopefully you'll at least get output now15:10
Sam-I-Amthen you can troubleshoot the next problem15:10
ForeverSmurfwhen you say make sure I write grubs config out15:11
ForeverSmurfyour mean running grub15:11
ForeverSmurfdevice (hd0) /dev/sda15:11

Sam-I-AmForeverSmurf: you might be confusing grub with all the extra crap for the second disk... just have it look at the first one for now.15:13
ForeverSmurfthe disks are identical15:14
ForeverSmurfsorry, I forgot I was running raid15:14
ForeverSmurffirst attempt at installing ubuntu on the server I left out the raid15:14
ForeverSmurfso I tried again with raid15:14
Sam-I-Amwell, right now the only thing that matters is getting grub to see the serial port15:14
ForeverSmurfnothing yet15:14
Sam-I-Ambecause if that doesnt work you can't do anything else15:14
ForeverSmurfyes, I agree15:14
ForeverSmurfno joy ;-(15:15
Sam-I-Amyou could try changing the --unit to 1 or 215:15
ForeverSmurfI just found this http://www.wehave.net/linux/custom1and1.html15:16
ForeverSmurfthere is an entry in there for serial consol15:17
ForeverSmurflooks same as mine15:17
ForeverSmurfbut I only have serial --unit=0 --speed=5760015:17
ForeverSmurfwithout the --word=8 --parity=no --stop=115:17
ForeverSmurfis it safe to remove everything from grub appart from the serial consol15:18
ForeverSmurfand terinal15:18
ForeverSmurffor testing15:18
Sam-I-Amtry that config you posted...15:19
ForeverSmurfif there is nothing in there will it output anything at all?15:19

ForeverSmurfis that an issue?15:41

acalvoit's not so related to ubuntu-server, but I guess most of the people that join this channel are working with domains and stuff, so maybe someone had the same problem/question as I had and I can take an advise from him16:00

acalvoI don't know if using, say DHCP/BOOTP, can get the machine name and domain name16:06
DormantOdenoh globbits.... now my server only lasts 2 minutes xD Hows your server life going ForeverSmurf?16:08

Ng    <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc'>hvm</type>17:54
ivoksthat's wrong17:54
ivoksdomain type should be kvm17:55
DavieyNg: You *could* just change it, and re-define it..17:56
ivokshvm means - virtualized17:56
Davieybut would be nice to find out the underlying bug17:56
Davieyivoks: but to be "helpful" os type should be hvm :)17:57
ivoks'virt-install --accelerate' should be enough17:57
Ng--accelerate gives me the "Unsupported virtualization type"17:57

Nghttp://paste2.org/p/327165 - that's the command I used17:59
alexmivoks: i have <domain type='kvm' id='1'> but also <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc'>hvm</type>18:00
Davieyalexm: /me has already mentioned this18:00
ivoksalexm: right, that's ok18:01
ivokswhat's wrong is domain type qemu, which Ng has18:01
alexmDaviey: just confirming that i got it that way too18:02
alexmokay, now i realize that Ng had domain type qemu, sorry for intruding18:02
ivoksNg: that command works for me :)18:03
ivoksNg: could you paste the output of it?18:03
Davieyivoks / Ng, Are you both using the same release?18:05
Davieyit has changed quite a lot since hardy18:05
ivoksi'm using jaunty18:06
NgI'm using hardy with the kvm-84 backport18:06
Ngivoks: http://paste2.org/p/32716918:06
ivokshow come there's no debug?18:07
_alkekshi_Could some one help me?18:07
Ngivoks: I'd love to know that :)18:07
DavieyHardy + Self backport of kvm-79 == "Unsupported virtualization type"18:07
ivoksdpkg -l | grep python-virtinst18:07
_alkekshi_i'm a newbie and i would like to now what is the easiest way to get samba working18:08
ivoksmaybe that's the problem18:08
ivoksi have 0.40018:08
Ngfwiw I'm using the kvm-84 backport by way of http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-virt/ppa/ubuntu18:08
ivoksmaybe python-virtinst should be backported18:08
* Daviey has the same package as Ng for python-virtinst18:08
ballhello Daviey18:09
Davieyhey ball18:09
ballIs there a command to watch someone's terminal to see what they type?18:09
ivoksNg: i'd try backporting python-virtinst18:10
ivoksit relies on python-libvirt18:11
ivokswhich is backported18:11

Pirate_Hunterhow do i create my domain name on my server, I dont fully understand but is the domain the same as the hostname?20:11
ballNot quite20:13
ball(in fact, not at all).20:13
ballHave you bought a domain20:13
Enkzallmost, hostname is usually the name of your computer inside a network20:13
Pirate_Hunterball nope i havent based on the tuts ive been following it would use the hostname as a domain, is that even possible20:14
Enkzyou can register it20:14
ball...but you probably don't want to.20:14
Pirate_HunterEnkz, so @example could become @example.lan or com depending on the webserver?20:14
balltraditionally a domain name is hostname.domain20:15
ball...or rather an FQDN is (fully-qualified domain name)20:15
balle.g. potch.endoftheinternet.org20:15
ball"potch" is the hostname20:15
ballendoftheinternet.org is the domain20:15
ballyou buy a domain name and point it to the IP address of your server (or LAN)20:16
ballI have my router forward certain ports on its WAN interface to the server, which is on the LAN side20:16
ball...people using it don't notice.  That's transparent.20:16
Pirate_Hunteroh hmmm so for soemthing like @example how would i make it a valid domain, the thing is at the moment buying aint an option until i get into grips with this whole server stuff and i am trying for the third time ISPConfig (yeah i know madness) so wish to understand this whole hostname / domain thing20:17
EnkzISPconfig requires a nameserver, right?20:17
ballPirate_Hunter: mine was free20:17
* ball shrugs20:18
Pirate_HunterEnkz, not sure just following the tut from the homepage instead of howtoforge site20:18
* Pirate_Hunter envious of ball, kicks him20:18
ballPirate_Hunter: even when I bought a domain, it was inexpensive20:19
ballPirate_Hunter: is your Linux box at home?20:19
Pirate_Hunterball, yes20:19
ballWhat do you want to do with it?20:19
ball(why do you want it to have a domain?)20:19
Pirate_Hunterball, i wish to host my own sites like i said money aint an option at the moment otherwise would be forking £30 a month for it20:20
ballWeb site?20:20
ballMore like UKP 30/year20:20
ball(for a domain)20:21
ballhello bin101020:21
Pirate_Hunterball, oh didnt know quite new to this so is there a way for me to do this been looking for noob tuts on setting up servers but havent got anything20:22

ballPirate_Hunter: what kind of Internet connection do you have at home?20:26
ballwtf.  Ubuntu Server doesn't ship with "banner"?20:27
Pirate_Hunterball, supposedly 16mb, why do you ask?20:28
ballPirate_Hunter: I didn't ask how fast it was, just what /kind/ it was.  Cable?  DSL?  Fibre?20:28
ball16 Mbits/sec is fast btw.20:29
ballI'm surprised that's not massively expensive20:29
ballPirate_Hunter: do you have a static IP address, or dynamic?20:43

owhFor many and varied reasons I am setting up a "virtual data centre" within my MacBook. There will be two main machines, a Ubuntu Desktop and a Ubuntu Server. I want to store the user data from the Desktop machine on the server. I also want to run an imap server and a mysql server on the (virtual) Ubuntu Server. From a performance and manageability perspective, how should I store the user data on the server? I can use NFS, CIFS or isc21:53

owhHow do I prevent a kernel upgrade on a production server where I'm happy to upgrade the rest of the updates?22:13
alexmthis is usually achieved by apt preferences, see man apt_preferences22:17
owhAre you telling me that I need to hard-code that I don't want to upgrade the kernel on this server? There's no way I can do something like apt-get upgrade -kernel*22:20
alexmyou can apt-get install all the packages that you do want to upgrade, i'm not sure if there's an option in apt-get to skip one22:21
alexmapt-get dist-upgrade should tell you which ones is going to upgrade but will ask for permission first22:22
alexmjust say no and then apt-get install ... (fill the dots cutting and pasting from the previous output)22:22
owhIt's not that I don't know what it's going to do, it's that I don't want to fsk around with a kernel on a remote server where the detection of the network card is chancy at best. If I apt-get install all the shown packages, there's nothing stopping it to upgrade the kernel if a package I specify depends on the new kernel, so I would need to manually go through the list one-at-a-time.22:24
owhDon't you just hate double clicks :(22:25
alexmif any of the packages explicitly listed in apt-get install depends on the kernel, you'll be prompted for permission again22:25
alexmapt-get install will only proceed without asking if you listed all the packages involved22:26
alexmtry it with some other package, apache for instance22:26
alexmor choose any other harmless package22:27
owhThat is exactly what I did before I got here, but then it started whinging about pre-fork and suggested I remove php. So I thought there must be a better way :)22:27
owhIs the process to hold a package still echo "pkg_name hold" | dpkg --set-selection22:30
owhOr have we "advanced" since 2004?22:31
