I dont want to add users like this , just wanna add users to pap or chat file in /etc/ppp/ directory, How can i? Need help please00:17

savidHi, I'm trying to get postgresql to run on my server, and when I run the ubuntu init script for postgres,  nothing happens.  No errors, server doesn't start.  How do I debug this?01:39
savidNothing in the error logs either01:43
pmatulissavid: apply the strace command to the init script (man strace)01:45
jmarsdensavid: sudo bash -x /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 start    # may give you an idea where in the init script things are going wrong01:45
savidhmm.. looks like the conf file doesn't exist...01:49
jmarsdensavid: If this is a new install, sudo apt-get purge postgresql-8.3  && sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.3   # may fix that for you?01:51
savidyeah, new install.  I'll try that01:51
savidjmarsden,  nope it still didn't set up a conf file for me01:52
jmarsdensavid: Karmic Server?  Seemed to work for me here... odd.  I need to go AFK for a while, may be back later; might try a fresh Karmic Server install in a VM to see if that sheds any light, but not right now...01:54
savidYeah, karmic01:54
savidIs there a different package for postgresql server other than "postgresql"?01:57
savidARGH this should not be this difficult01:59
jmarsdensavid: sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.4    # Just works for me here.01:59
savidjmarsden,  and you see the conf file in /etc?02:00
savidmakes no sense at all02:01
jmarsdenI see the server start up automatically :)02:01
jmarsdenAnd a bunch of config files under /etc/postgresql/8.4/main/02:02
jmarsdenBut now I really have to go... back later I hope.02:02
Roxyhart0hi i need to reconfigure my nss and pam and dpkg-reconfigure doesnt work, how i can do it manually?02:03

Roxyhart0hi please sombody can tell me where is the configuration for libnss now? before i did the configuration in the file ldap.conf, but now is not anymore05:53
jmarsdenRoxyhart0: libnss has always been configured using /etc/nsswitch.conf  (as far as I know).05:58
Roxyhart0i mean when i do dpkg-reconfigure i need to wrote many things, where are this information05:59
jmarsdenThat's a TOTALLY different question.  Which is confusing.  Info stored by debconf goes into the debconf database, see man 7 debconf06:01
jmarsdenYou can sudo apt-get install debconf-utils and then use debconf-show to see what is stored for each package, if that helps you.06:02
Roxyhart0i am wondering why when i do getent password is just shows me the local useras and not ldap. when i do wbinfo it work fine06:05
twbjmarsden: wouldn't you use debconf-list-selections?06:12
jmarsdentwb: Hmmm.  On my Karmic desktop here I don't have debconf-list-selections but I do have debconf-show .  Did the names of the utilities change?06:14
twbEr, -get-selections06:15

Roxyhart0before i did some configuration in a file ldap.conf which contend somethink like that http://pastebin.com/d3dc68a73. where i could set this informatin now?06:18
jmarsdendebconf-show and debconf-get-selections are ways to see that information.06:18
Roxyhart0sorry about the spelling06:19

jon23d Hello, I'm trying to get the updated GD library working on an ubuntu server, but am having issues.  I am following the instructions here: http://www.howtoforge.com/recompiling-php5-with-bundled-support-for-gd-on-ubuntu , but after running dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot I get: dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 220:54
sherringhamTry and build it without any rules mods - sanity check your environment. If that works, but the build fails when you adjust the rules file, you know where to look.21:00
jon23dkk, trying now, ty21:00
derekshi all. i am going to be running a headless home server for my home (to SSH into, backup, and a bunch of other small tasks). i am assuming an ubuntu-minimal install would suit me better, just want to make sure thoguh. would there be any reason you can think of for ubuntu server if i am not really looking to run a web server, db server, email server, etc...21:12
sherringhamYou don't need to install stuff web,db etc. - you have a choice - server version would be better if headless - assuming no X required21:13
kusznirHi all: I'm trying to create a ubuntu domU on my xen hvm server.  I've been trying with the 9.10 x86_64 dvd iso.  I've got it loading the cd menu (language, etc), but when I select "Install ubuntu", my display hangs (the menu is cleared, a flashing cursor shows up for about 1 sec, then all that remains is the F1... stuff on the bottom of the screen), and the CPU uses 100% of one core until I kill the DomU.  Any suggestions?21:13
derekssherringham: is there a list of what comes on server by default?21:14
derekssherringham: and why is it better than the "minimal" install (ie, mini.iso)21:16

sponzoris ext4 bugy or is it ok now?21:18
sherringhamdereks: why is it better - maybe it isn't :-) I am not familiar with minimal - go for it. You can install what you need afterwards easily anyway.21:19
sherringhamsponzor: current ext4 is considered "production" quality now.21:24
sponzorwhat about the /boot should be on ext4 or ext3? i did all partitions on ext4 and the /boot on ext3 is that ok?21:24

sherringhamimage_q: describe your net connection - ethernet/eth0 -> router or switch? Where did you get the 96.56.144.156 address?21:56
image_qrouter21:57
image_qoptimum online21:58
image_qits a business network21:58
image_qI added auto eth0 to the interfaces file (it accidentally had a # in front) and whenever I restart it gives me the message "Failed to bring up eth0"21:59
image_qI try to add it with "route add -net 96.56.144.156 gw xx.xx.xx.xx dev eth0"22:01

image_qI'm using a separate computer so I cant copy/paste22:11
image_qthey're all 144 on the server22:11
image_q(except mask)22:12
sherringhamIs the network h/w OK? i.e. module loaded and h/w found? i.e. sudo grep eth0 /var/log/dmesg22:13

sherringhamimage_q: Is the other eth device installed and available?22:22
image_qI have 2 internet cards atm yes22:22
sherringhamimage_q: I'm just wondering whether you should consider getting the gw working with the original (m/board) ethernet i.e. configure without the other device - in case it's the problem.22:25
sherringhami.e. physically remove temporarily - while you test22:25
image_qit was working before22:25
sherringhamAnd stopped when you added the 2nd device?22:26
image_qbut I configured it with a different ip/gateway22:26
image_qno I'm trying to put this on a different ip/different gateway etc22:26
sherringhamWell - you see where I'm going ... simplify config and test22:26
image_qwhen I changed it it stopped working22:26
image_qso you think I should remove the second device, and reconfig it?22:26
image_qI think I'll just reinstall it, this machine doesn't have anything special on it anyway22:30
sherringhamOK - not sure what to suggest (other than take 2nd dev out and re-check)22:31
image_qyeah it will take me the same amount of time to just reinstall it22:31
image_qthanks22:31
sherringhamGood luck22:31
jon23dsherringham, I tried building without any mods, but it still failed22:34
jon23dI found this in test-results.txt: ERROR: invalid PHP executable specified by TEST_PHP_EXECUTABLE  = ./apache2-build/sapi/cli/php22:35
sherringhamjon23d: not sure - what is that file? : file ./apache2-build/sapi/cli/php22:37
jon23dif I had to guess I would say the php command line interface generated by the build22:38
sherringhamYes - but is it "valid" as per "file"? I am not a PHP person I'm afraid (or dpkg-buildpackage actually)22:39
sherringhamAny other errors or warning earlier?22:39
jon23dwell, not sure, I've never done this before!  I can tell you this though, when I run the file (./apache2-build/sapi/cli/php -f "echo 'hi';"), it works22:39
sherringhamOK22:40
jon23dyeah, there were also warnings about it not liking running in safe mode22:40
sherringhamMaybe I will try it quickly .. hold on22:40
