Roxyhart0hi, how i can run a C program, i mean program.C?02:01
InsyteRoxyhart0: It needs to be compiled.02:03
InsyteRoxyhart0: At its simplest, that's done by running 'gcc -o program program.c'02:03
InsyteBut that assumes a lot about how the program was written.02:04
InsyteIt can be quite a bit more complex.02:04
twbIf I had to describe how most programs are written, it would be "badly"02:06

cefAny libvirt people: Does libvirt have an upstart script in Lucid?02:16
cef(as apposed to karmic)02:16
twbcef: apt-file should tell you02:23
twboooh, libvirt-bin no longer depends on crappy ol' hal02:25
ceftwb: I'm currently using karmic, which is why I'm asking.. trying to decide if I upgrade this kvm host to lucid and work on a bridging issue (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/495394 )02:27
uvirtbotLaunchpad bug 495394 in libvirt "autostart almost always fails on boot time host" [Medium,Confirmed]02:27
twbcef: you can get the file list from packages.u.c, too02:27
ceftwb: arggg.. for whatever reason when I looked at that yesterday, I missed the 'list of files' bit. *sigh*02:46
twbcef: np02:47
cefhrm.. now, do I upgrade this machine to lucid? hrmmmm02:47
twbubottu: karmic->lucid02:48
twbCrappy bot02:48
cefit's not running production or anything02:48
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading02:48
cefoh I know how to upgrade. :P02:48
cefonly upgraded to karmic on this box a week ago. ;)02:48
twbIf your way involve dist-upgrade, that's not the official way02:49
twbBut I can't remember what the "right" way in Ubuntu is, since it's some damn silly separate tool02:49
cefnup, using do-release-upgrade, after installing update-manager-core02:49
twbAh, sorry, I misread you "do I upgrade" as "how do I upgrade"02:49
cef<-- no desktop install on said box02:50
cefnot enough coffee eh?02:50
twbcef: I'm still absorbing it02:50
cefhrm, upgrade I guess and then time to seriously learn about upstart02:52
JanCdist-upgrade works fine too, if you're prepared to do all the work that do-release-upgrade does by hand  ;)02:57
twbJanC: but how do you know what that work is?02:58
twbDo you RTFS of update-manager?02:58
ja660khey, can someone give a guide as how to a printer and cups??02:58
ja660kset up a printer*02:58
twbja660k: have you already tried the ubuntu-serverguide?02:58
ja660ki dont think so02:59
JanCtwb: I've used it (through aptitude or synaptic) when the official way didn't work (on a system that had lots of non-official packages etc.)02:59
JanCjust check what it wants to do, and if you don't like it, try to find why it's doing it, add/remove offending packges, repeat  ;)03:00
twbHow do you check what it wants to do?  Or by "it" do you mean aptitude?03:01
JanCbut if possible I use the recommended way too of course03:01
* twb installs update-manager-core in a pbuilder chroot03:01
JanCtwb: when you use it interactively it shows what will be removed etc.03:01
JanCand yes I mean aptitude/synaptic/...03:01
JanCafter I saw the official way tried to remove half of what I used  ;-)03:02
JanCworst example of that was on a desktop anyway03:02
twbJanC: I'm perfectly happy to full-upgrade by hand, since that's what I've been doing since Woody.  But I want to upgrade documentation to tell me what the transition edge cases are, instead of just saying "use this wizard and hope it all works"03:02
JanCthey can't document all edge cases, as they don't know what unofficial packages you have03:03
ja660kis there anything i need to enable in order to use ssh tunneling to my server as socks5 host?03:03
JanCand nobody can test all combinations of official packages either03:03
twbJanC: I mean I want them to document known edge cases -- i.e. I want the Debian upgrade process, not the hand-holdy Ubuntu desktop upgrade process.03:04
JanCtwb: I agree documenting what update-manager does would be useful03:04
JanCeven if it were only on soem wiki page03:04
twbIf nothing else, there should be an update-manager-core --dry-run --verbose03:04
twbIt looks like the only thing there is "-s, --sandbox         Test upgrade with a sandbox aufs overlay"03:07
JanCtwb: the GUI version shows you what it's going to do before actually doing it, so shouldn't be too difficult to implement?03:07
twbThere's a --proposed, but it looks like it doesn't DTRT03:07
twbJanC: NFI.03:07
JanCit shows what new packages will be installed, what packages will be removed, what packages will be upgraded03:09
JanCif on a GNOME desktop it wants to remove all of GNOME, you know it's time to do amanual upgrade  ;)03:10
JanCsame should be possible on the CLI-version for servers IMHO03:11
cefbtw: 'do-release-upgrade' does that as well03:11
cefno idea if it has other options (eg: show what will be done, etc)03:12
twbWell, let's try it in a scratch hardy chroot03:12
twbThe lucid chroot failed because, obviously, there wasn't anything to upgrade to :-)03:12
ceftwb: heh.. I'm actually about to upgrade this karmic host to lucid, so I guess I'll find out soon enough03:13
geniiI am looking at Intel fibre network cards... would anyone know about Pro/1000 XF (pci-x) or the Pro/1000 PF (pci-e)  ? I have boards with both these ports03:15
twbLooks like update-manager needs an internet connection, too -- you can't just give it a lucid debmirror.03:18
twbThat means I can't use it on my secure sites, at least.03:18
ceftwb: doh!03:19
twbHaha, and a ^C causes the app to backtrace instead of exiting cleanly03:19
twbCrappy python crap03:19
twbAnd the prompt says "Continue [yN]", but just hitting enter isn't the same as N03:20
Roxyhart0 HI I am getting error to join the domain and do wbinfo:  http://pastebin.com/dbf34dcb any idea?03:20
twbIt's also interesting on Hardy, it seems to assume that I'm doing LTS -> LTS, because unless I supply --devel-release, it claims there's no release after hardy.03:21
cefwill just scp my vm guests to a backup machine before I upgrade this vm host to lucid methinks ;)03:23
twbHaha, ^C-ing do-release-upgrade leaves sources.list in a fucked-up state.03:24
twbI can't work out why, but even if I restore sources.list and aptitude update, it still can't see packages from hardy.  I was gonna install man(1) so I could read the do-update-manager manpage.03:27
ceftwb: it's a python script btw03:27
twbWhich is a waste of time, because it has no manpage.  Fucking idiots...03:27
cefyeah, no man page in karmic either03:29
twbIf this was Debian, that would be a policy violation.03:29
cefhrm, looks like libvirt 0.7.6 might solve the bridge not being up issue, or at least, without fscking with upstart scripts.. hrmm oh well.03:34
twbcef: ow ow ow ow ow -- guess what else it does.03:37
twbcef: it ignores your local, unmetere, FAST mirror and always uses archive.ubuntu.com03:37
ceftwb: that iis fixed in jaunty+ at least03:38
cefit used my approxx mirror03:38
twbcef: hmm, do you have that in /etc/apt/sources.list, or in a sources.list.d/foo file?03:38
twbMaybe it doesn't understand the former03:38
twbOh well.03:39
cefI think it didn't use it prior to jaunty03:39
twbCertainly looks like update-manager-core is waaay too flaky for me to use for LTS->LTS upgrade03:40
cefthey should backport a later version back to hardy before lucid ships, at any rate03:45
twbWell, I don't turn on backports for production servers.03:46
twbBecause new versions = new bugs03:46
Roxyhart0twb do you have any ide about my problem?  http://pastebin.com/dbf34dcb any idea?03:47
twbIt's not like a server needs a stupidly new firefox 3.5 :-)03:47
cefno as in backport the script into main - as in traditional meaning of backport, rather than a repo meaning03:47
twbcef: oh, right03:48
ehndeis there a way to block port scanners from my server?03:55
twbehnde: unplug it03:55
ehndeand...just saw an entry in my apache access.log coming from something trying to find an zencart vulnerability :|03:56
cefehnde: you can use an iptables firewall, but it won't block someone who hits the right port03:57
twbcef: depends if you mean xtables -m dscan03:57
ceftwb: yeah, but if it's a public webserver on port 80.. welll03:57
twbehnde: such a log entry isn't generated by port scanning.03:57
ehndetwo different episodes twb03:57
Roxyhart0hi just a question can you read that because i think i am invisible?03:58
twbcef: if you're having iptables *detect port scanning*, you can use that to selectively blacklist access from that IP -- including access to the otherwise open port 8003:58
cefRoxyhart0: you're not invisible.. I just don't know the answer to your question, sorry!03:58
ceftwb: yeqah, assuming they hit a different port first. but yes, I agree, that would work03:58
twbSorry, it's -m psd, not -m dscan03:59
twbI don't know how reliable it is; I've never deployed it.03:59
twbFrom the manpage, I get the impression that psd will only detect sequential probing of a large port range.04:00
twbSo e.g. a typical port knocker won't inadvertently trip it04:00
Roxyhart0nad sombody know how i can install a package which is .tar i got samba 3.4.5 package in tar format04:02
lifelessthats not a package for ubuntu04:03
lifelessits either a bsd package (can't use) or its a source tarball (need to package it up)04:03

Roxyhart0yes so i am invisible for you04:04
twbMTecknology: by "cli" do you mean it emits an image file, or do you mean it's an interactive ncurses UI?04:05

MTecknologygah.. I used this last time to find who was doing a dos attack on my system...04:16

MTecknologyis it possible to limit use of a port based on IP?04:31
twbAnybody seen this failure before?  I'm trying to install syslinux in a lucid chroot.  http://pastebin.com/f1ade18c04:32

twbLemme pastebin for you06:47

twbcef: I just checked, and sending ctrl-alt-f1 to the screen after vga16fb is loaded doesn't help -- as expected, it's enabling the framebuffer on all ttys07:01
ceftwb: ugh07:01
twbIt wouldn't normally matter, because you're looking at an analogue signal anyway07:01
twbBut because I'm in qemu, I can get 80x25 console visible as text, which you can just copy/paste.  That's not the case for vga/vesa framebuffers07:02

baffleivoks: Is there really a functioning cluster in Karmic? I have it *running* on a set of machines, but it seems a bit.. Off...08:11
baffleivoks: :-)08:11
baffleivoks: (I figure since you have been working with cluster for lucid you might know the state of 9.10)08:11
ivoksbaffle: rhcs isn't really maintained, and pacemaker in karmic was still non working solution08:11
baffleivoks: Hmm, okay.. Because what I have now seems to be a bit hit'n'miss..08:12
ivoksbut lucid should have gfs2, ocfs2, clvmd and lots of other goodies with pacemaker08:12
baffleivoks: It seems to be using corosync.. But it takes many minutes to get it to actually join the cluster, and on a different setup clvm doesn't work and all.08:13
ivokscorosync is just one part of the story08:13
ivoksboth pacemaker and rhcs use it08:13
ivoksclvm on the other hand, in karmic, is compiled with support only for rhcs208:13
baffleivoks: And it also seems LVM does not fall back to local locking when I've set up cluster locking? Wich is a problem since I have / on a local LVM VG. Wich means servers won't boot, since there is no cluster at initramfs stage.08:14
ivoksthat should all be fixed in lucid08:14
baffleivoks: Great.08:14
ivoksi've seen that bug report of your complains on irc08:15
baffleivoks: Is it working in Lucid now, or are you waiting for the MIRs?08:15
ivoksi'll look into it, once everything is there08:15
ivoksat the moment, i don't consider we have clvm at all :)08:15
baffleivoks: I don't think I ever got aroudn to reporting a proper bug, since I haven't digged enough into it to be 100% sure it isn't PEBKAC.08:15
ivoksbaffle: clvm stuff? not yet... we need to recompile it with support for corosync08:15
baffleivoks: Oh, so clvm doesn't use corosync? What does clvm use in Karmic?08:16

Cybert1nusI've moved my Ubuntu Server install from one partition to another. I have a seperate /boot partition. I've done this before (with the same install) and then it worked. Now it doesn't. When I boot Grub2 works fine, but during the boot Linux can't find the root filesystem. I've checked the UUID it wants to mount, and it is the correct one. So it looks like my InitRD has lost the RAID drivers or something (I'm running on softraid level 1). Anybody any advi09:48
Cybert1nusbut I checked /proc/modules and the raid1 module gets loaded09:48

ivoksanyone? small feature before FF?09:58
ivokshttp://www.init.hr/dev/amavisd-new.debdiff <- it isn't that scary :)09:58
Cybert1nuswhen I run update-grub on a LiveCD (I've mounted my Ubuntu install on it, and chrooted to it) I get the error "Cannot find list of partitions!". I've Googled for this error, but nothing simular to my problem came up, only really old stuff (Ubuntu 6.06 :S). I don't know if it has something to do with my problem?09:59
ivokswhy would you update grub on live cd?09:59
ivoksCD is a read only medium10:00
Cybert1nusI know10:00
ivoksyou can't update anything10:00
Cybert1nusbut I boot a live CD, and then mount my Ubuntu install and update Grub in my Ubuntu install ;)10:00
ivoksyou chroot before you run update grub?10:01
ivoksyou mounted all dirs?10:02
ivoksso, this is how i would do it:10:02
Cybert1nusall my partitions, /dev and /proc10:02
ivokssudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt10:02
ivokssudo mount -t sysfs /mnt/sys10:02
ivokssudo mount -t proc /mnt/proc10:02
ivokssudo chroot /mnt /bin/bash10:02
ivokssudo update-grub210:02
ivoksi'd also run:10:03
ivokssudo update-initramfs -k all10:03
ivoksand then update-grub10:03
Cybert1nushmm, trying that now ivoks10:06
Cybert1nusI didn't mount sysfs10:07
Cybert1nusand update-initramfs -k all -u I didn't run10:07
Cybert1nusupdated everything, rebooting now :)10:08
Cybert1nusivoks: it didn't work :(, my /root device still can't be found :(10:11
ivoksdoes it drop to the busybox?10:11
acalvojust to know your opinion: I've a bunch of ubuntu server 9.04 running with some services (apache2, openldap, samba, mysql...). I know that maybe it wasn't the best move to install a non-LTS system. My question is, is it worth (and safe) to upgrade to 9.10 and then to the next LTS (10.04 I assume)?10:12
ivoksacalvo: don't10:12
ivokswait for lts10:12
ivoksCybert1nus: and your root is?10:13

ivoksdoes it show any modules?10:14
ivokscat /proc/modules10:14
Cybert1nuscat /proc/modules does list modules10:14
Cybert1nusincluding the raid1 module10:14
Cybert1nusany ideas ivoks?10:17
ivoksCybert1nus: you are looking for md_mod module10:17
ivoksand dm_mirror10:18
Cybert1nusproblem found, I would say10:18
Cybert1nuscat /proc/modules | grep md_10:18
Cybert1nusdoesn't return any lines10:18
Cybert1nushow to add those? :)10:19
ivokstry loading it10:19

ivokswait, i have a fire over here10:21
Cybert1nusno /dev/md3, only /dev/md3_0p1 till /dev/md3_0p4 and /dev/md_d310:21
ivoksyou need to rebuild initramfs10:22
ivoksboot into live cd, mount patitions and add md_mod to /etc/modules10:24

maxagazwhy nmap isn't installed on ubuntu by default, should i use something else ?10:58
sorenmaxagaz: We don't install random utilities like that by default.10:59
maxagazsoren, nmap, a random utility ?11:00
sorenmaxagaz: Yes?11:00
sorenWhy what?11:00
sorenWhy we don't install them by default?11:01
maxagazi mean, what else should I use to check wether a port is opened/filtered/closed ?11:01
sorenIt's the right tool for the job.11:02
sorenThat doesn't mean it should be installed by default, though.11:02
maxagazwhere can I check where does fail2ban put the banned addresses ?11:06
livasoren > id like to understand why it doesn't make sense to have nmap install by default11:07
sorenliva: Becuase it's dead simple to install it when you need it, and there's no need bloating a default install with every little utility that someone finds useful.11:08
maxagazit's in the Chain fail2ban-ssh when checking iptables -L, right ?11:08
livaOk i understand11:08
sorenliva: If we installed every little utility that someone finds useful, the default install would easily grow to 5 GB.11:08
sorenliva: Or 10.11:08
sorenliva: Or more. I don't know. A lot, for sure.11:09

thafreakMorning server folks...I'm still wondering if anyone can point me to any docs on how to configure CLVM?12:16
Roxyhart0it is checking emails but not sure about traffic about HTTP12:17
sorenDo you know how the virus got in?12:17
sorenWell, if you want to scan HTTP traffic you need a proxy of some sort.12:17
sorenGoogle for squid and clamav, and I'm sure you'll find something useful.12:17
Roxyhart0because i am blacklist (my domain) many times this week and they say is comming for virus, troyan or blabla12:17
sorenNo, /how/ the virus got in. Mail? Web? Something else?12:18

os_I am having a lot to say but I don't want to shift the purpose of this channel but every one I would like to remind you about yourself14:01
os_Are you using the LTS version or the other versions14:01
swiftos_ using ubunt 8.0414:02
zulhey smoser14:02
swiftubuntu 8.04, LTS14:02
swiftAlso, do we need to reboot the server after the updates?14:02
cordenhello guys14:03
os_I usually update it every 2 to 3 weeks and I reboot it if it is update like kernel update but sorry for not giving solid answer I would to leave it for the other great guys14:03
os_the guys around in this channel14:04
cordenjust want to ask what recommended partition scheme for ubuntu server14:04
cordenany site that you can point14:04
swiftplease advise.. great guys14:05
cordeni've used ubuntu quite sometimes now and i want to learn the server side of it.14:05
cordentnx in advance14:05
screen-xswift: depends if there was a kernel update14:07
swiftscreen-x.. what is the frequency?14:08
swifti mean... do i need to do this every month?14:08
swiftor is it safe to do it quarterly?14:08
screen-xcorden: I tend to use a boot partition and the rest of the disk with LVM. But with grub2, you may not need a boot partition.14:08
os_To interrupt Any one who would tell me any software  or web based for digital library content sharing system I prefer web based14:09
swiftscreen-x... im trying to get a "best practice" here14:09
os_this is my last question sorry14:09
screen-xswift: If you server is internet facing then you definitely need to stau up to date with the updates in the security repos, you can get apticron or something like that to email you when they are available, then only reboot if there is a kernel update involved.14:10
screen-xos_: resourcespace, greenstone?14:11
cordenscreen-x, oic. but i want to experiment with server partitioning14:11
screen-xcorden: LVM is great for that, you can create/delete/shrink/grow LVs, you can move them between disks and do all sorts.14:12
cordeni open lot of informative site but have mix partition scheme14:12
cordenbut i guess i will try what you suggested14:12
cordensince i only got 10GB hdd14:13
os_thank you screen-x now I got a great  keyword to google for this is enough from people like you14:13
os_Let me copy and paste them to fire fox14:13
cordenand by the way which of the two you use? selinux or apparmor(default)14:13
screen-xcorden: I use apparmor, but I also use virtualisation to separate applications.14:14
cordenah, separating your lamp, file other type of servers? i uses vbox in vmachine14:16
screen-xcorden: yeah, I'm currently using *cough* vmware, but hope to be able to move to UEC or something kvm based.14:17

smoserthe fix is easy as 'import time' in cloudinit/boto_utils.py17:03

smoserzul thanks.20:32
ChmEarlcan I do a kernel update in rescue mode (booting from CD)?20:33
David_Bhello. i have a machine which i can install ubuntu desktop on fine, but will not correctly install server. i am not sure why this is the case20:38
David_Bthe issue is at the grub bootloader stage of install20:39
ChmEarlDavid_B, if you are multi-booting with other distros, you don't need to use that bootloader20:41
David_BChmEarl: new machine, nothing else on there20:41
ChmEarlk, you are stuck with it :)20:42
David_Bchmeark: aye, but it won't instal!20:43
ChmEarldo you have /boot partition and its ext2?20:43
=== dendrobates is now known as dendro-afk
ChmEarldid you install with all defaults?20:43
David_Bdon't know, and yes20:44
DrNick_silly question, i assume a reboot is still required after updating the kernel or kernel modules? only I remember reading something somewhere about it not being required in some situations20:46
ChmEarlDavid_B, so the install failed. Did you try to go into rescue mode and see if root is OK?20:46
David_Bchmearl: hmm, no, let me boot from cd again20:46
DrNick_David_B: out of interest did you set up RAID or LVM voluems on the root device?  grub can't boot from an LVM partition, you'd have to use LILO in that instance20:48
David_BThat must be it20:48
David_Byeah, was just doing defaults and 'LVM' was default20:48
DrNick_:)  it should offer to install LILO for you however20:48
David_Bhmm, i seem to remember trying that, and it not working20:49
David_Bbut I'll try again20:49
DrNick_if in any doubt however, create a partition for /boot which isn't on an LVM or RAID volume, then boot from that and set everything else up as you please20:49
DrNick_only needs to be 100MB or so20:50
David_Berr, I only have my raid disks20:50
David_Bwould a USB pen drive do?20:50
DrNick_well no, reserve 100MB or so at the start of one drive for the /boot partition then use the rest of the drive for your linux RAID partitions20:50
David_Bright… so would i need to un-raid my drives, partition them using the installer and then re raid them?20:51
David_Bit's hardware raid off my modo20:51
DrNick_i'm afraid so yes20:51
DrNick_i thought you meant you were using linux's softraid20:52
DrNick_in that case that does somewhat confuse things... at least it can do.20:52
David_Bok… would i be best off starting off without raid and going from there?20:52
DrNick_does the linux install program see your RAID'd drives as a single disk or as individual drives?20:52
David_Bsingle disk i think20:52
David_Bwell, used to… now it see it as all kinds of rubbish as i've installed and reinstalled and fiddlled around so much20:53
DrNick_my advice - disable the RAID on the mobo, and use linux software RAID which is probably faster anyway if the truth is told20:53
David_Bok, I always thought hardware raid was faster, but this is just for a home web server so I guess it doesn't matter too much20:53
DrNick_most if not all "RAID" chips on  motherboards aren't true hardware RAID anyway and are usually more trouble than they're worth.  disable it, and set up RAID under linux if you need/want it20:54
David_Band I should be able to use grub with that? do you still recommend having a /boot partition on one disk?20:54
DrNick_grub can boot from mirrored drives just fine20:54
David_Bso i install unraided, and then can I set up RAID after it's all booting ok?20:55
DrNick_but if it's RAID5 you want, forget it you need a /boot partition.  if it's just disk mirroring you're doing however then you're fine20:55
David_Bno, RAID120:55
David_Bby the way, thanks very much, you've been extremely helpful20:56
DrNick_the steps you take should roughly be 1) disable RAID on the mobo, 2) boot the installer, 3) when asked about partitioning, nuke any and all partitions on your disks, i.e. initialise the partition table on each.  then set up the partitions as you like.  if you want RAID, create linux raid partitions on the drives, then you can do all your RAID setup from the installer itself20:56
David_Bexcellent, I'll give it a go!20:56
DrNick_good luck20:56
David_Bshould I use LVM?20:59
David_Bbearing in mind I'm not entirely sure what it actually is21:00
DrNick_if you're not entirely sure about it then either take the time to read up on it a little first (as there are concepts involved you really should understand before using it), or don't bother using it.21:03
DrNick_in general i wouldn't think it'd be required for a web server anyway21:03
DrNick_out of interest, i assume no one else had the answer to my original question then21:04
ChmEarlDrNick_, I had to reboot after kernel update, so yes21:04
DrNick_ok thanks ChmEarl21:05
ChmEarland my new kernel was picked fine21:05
David_BI cannot seem to delete all the partitions, they say they are in use by 'ubuntuserver'21:06
DrNick_select each disk in the list and press <Enter>, it should tell you it's about to initialise the partition table21:07
guntbertDavid_B: you have to do it from the install/live CD - not from a running system (rescue counts as running)21:07
David_BI am doing it from the instal21:08
David_Bthe following things are listed: LVM VG ubuntu server, LV root - 497.4 GB21:08
David_BLVM VG ubuntuserver, LV swap_1 −2.3GB21:08
David_BThen my two hard drives, each with a 499.7 GB primary LVM partition and 361.9 of free space21:09
DrNick_yeah, that must be from before... you migt have to go in and remove the LVM volumes first.... or actually restart the install, and when asked if you wish to activate existing LVM volumes say NO21:10
David_Bthere doesn't appear to be an option to remove I'm afraid21:10
DrNick_then you should be able to nuke all the patitions and start again21:10
David_Bhow would i do that?21:10
David_BI can't see any 'nuke' option :P21:11
DrNick_reboot it.  restart the install, when it asks if you want to activate your LVM volumes say NO.  then you'll get the list as before, but without the LVM volumes listed at the bottom.  then you'll be able to remove the existing partitions and start agian21:11
David_Bok, I'll try that, thank you21:12
David_Berr, the installer didn't ask me about lvm options21:15
David_Bdo I need to go into a more advanced mode?21:15
DrNick_what happens when you select the first hard disk in the list and press <Enter> with the highlight over it21:15
David_Bit says I cannot modify the disk because the primary partition is in use by the ubuntuserver lvm thing21:16
DrNick_ok, what you'll have to do then, there will be a menu option for modifying the LVM config.  go into that, remove all the logical volumes, then remove the volume group.  basically you'll get a further menu with options, use that to remove the LVM volumes21:18
DrNick_they're what the installer from before would have created21:18
ChmEarlfor managing services in Centos, I used chkconfig. What to use here for karmic?21:21
ChmEarlI know about /etc/init.d/<srvc>21:22
David_Bok, Dr Nick, that half worked… I was able to delete the logcal volumes and the volume group21:22
David_Band then could go back and delete all the partitions on one of the disks21:23
DrNick_ok good21:23
DrNick_but... lol21:23
David_Bthough there is still one LVM partition on one disk that won't go away (same issue as before)21:23
David_Blvm volume group in use by ubuntu server21:23
David_Boh wait, did it again21:24
David_Bneeded to do it for both disks :p21:24
DrNick_ChmEarl: best thing to use is possibly sysv-rc-conf21:30
ChmEarlchecking it out now21:31
sherrChmEarl: update-rc.d is the most similar - fairly straightforward.21:58
sherrChmEarl: see also : man service21:58
DrNick_i wouldn't recommend update-rc.d - as it says in the man page, it's mostly for use in scripts.  sysv-rc-conf is most like chkconfig and has a nice menu interface also if required21:59
