ActionParsnipnp bro00:02
ActionParsnipp1oooop: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MailServer00:02
p1oooopthanks :)00:02
jan247I wonder though, so that means that any service that relies on a consistent tcp connection is maxed out serving ~65k clients at a time right?00:03
ActionParsnipjan247: no, you can have multiple connections on the same port but the sessions will be handled by the session layer in the OSI model00:03
jan247ActionParsnip: I see. however, outgoing connections each uses up different ports right?00:04
ActionParsnipjan247: depends o the protocol, ftp does but many don't00:05

p1oooopThiagoMedeiros: what ubuntu release are you running00:15
GArReTs3r3n1t7, its not actually a wireless device... it has wireless functionality, but its actually a modem that connects me to the internet00:16
GArReTMaRk-I, do i Download that?00:16
s3r3n1t7GArReT, lsusb is a command you can run in a !cli00:16

timposeycan anyone tell me why my cellphone is not recognized on one of my ubuntu computers and will not charge when I plug it in?  anyone have any idea of what to check.00:16
ActionParsnipGArReT: sudo lshw -C network    websearch for the product line to find guides00:17
GArReTok but if my modem is listed there? will it work? or do i need to get the drivers for it?? since i think there is only windows drivers....00:17
MK13Would dd'ing one NTFS partition to another one like 'dd if=/dev/sdx1 of=/dev/sdy1' then lengthening the partition on sdy (sdx is smaller than sdy) work to create a clone of a harddrive which houses an OS?00:17
ActionParsniptimposey: it should charge in any usb port, regardless of OS00:17
taylor_okay, i put ubuntu on a separate computer and it took up the whole drive... No Windows is left... I have a boot disk for it. Ive booted it up more than once now, and every time i try it tells me it needs another driver to write over ubuntu... What do I do?!?00:18
ThiagoMedeirosp1oooop: ok00:18
GArReTi'm just having a hard time connecting to the internet via my modem on ubuntu :(00:18
GArReTok but let me try that first00:18
ActionParsnipMK13: i'd ask in ##windows too00:18
=== slidinghorn is now known as SlidingHorn_out
timposeyActionParsnip, it does on every other computer, and shows up as a usb type jump drive, but not on this system.00:18
MK13ActionParsnip: but is the idea atleast sound?00:18
ActionParsnipMK13: makes sense00:18
MK13ActionParsnip: ok, thanks00:19
ActionParsniptimposey: sounds like a dead port, usb has a pin for +5V which charges devices and/or gives them power, so if its not charging the port is dead assuming you use the same cable00:19
p1oooopThiagoMedeiros: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=227057&highlight=bluetooth+mouse here's a guide00:20
taylor_okay, i put ubuntu on a separate computer and it took up the whole drive... No Windows is left... I have a boot disk for it. Ive booted it up more than once now, and every time i try it tells me it needs another driver to write over ubuntu... What do I do?!?00:21
timposeyActionParsnip; it was a bad cable... I was pulling my hair out with that one, because the cable works with everything else..00:22
p1ooooptaylor_: windows tells you that?00:22
GArReTGuys, Does ubuntu have drivers for all hardware, or only most of them?00:22
macoGArReT: most00:22
GArReThmmm so for example if i plug in a webcam... what will ubuntu tell me?00:23
taylor_@Ploooop yeah when i boot it from the disk, but i doesnt tell me what driver...00:23
macoGArReT: it wont tell you anything. either it'll just magically work when you try a webcam-using program, or it won't00:23
ActionParsniptimposey: weird, oh well you got the gold00:23
macoGArReT: the "dmesg" command will tell you what the kernel's saying about stuff. you can see an event in there saying something was plugged in00:24
GArReTyou see my problem is that i DONT know when it is working or not working.... It's like I said, I plugged my modem into my ubuntu PC, but I dont know if he installed it and what to do next!!00:24
dugger5688taylor_: Windows won't recognize ext (the filesystem used by ubuntu). A fresh install of windows will be able to reformat the drive back to FAT/NTFS. The ubuntu live CD can also format a drive to anything you would nedd.00:24
timposeyGArRet; It has had drivers for most everything that I have ever had to use, you can use drivers that come with some items even though they were not specifically made to work with ubuntu00:24
timposeyActionParsnip; thanks..00:24
macoGArReT: i think modems require wvdial to configure00:25
taylor_@dugger5688 so i just need a ubuntu live disk to get rid of ubuntu?!?00:25

dugger5688D#RGPS31: some people say that flash is moody but no problems here. Also u need more memory for it.00:26
dugger5688taylor_: That or a windows install CD (assuming you want to get rid of ubuntu)00:26
ActionParsnipD3RGPS31: some manufacturers dont give drives for 32bit and some apps that arent on the repos arent 64bit so you will have to manually satisfy 32bit deps manually00:26

red2kic!firewall | R3cur51v300:29
ubottuR3cur51v3: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.00:29

mattymanxI see.  So TB3 does not want to support my old Yahoo account while my TB2 will just fine.  Checap bastards.01:01
macovock: keep in mind that whether you use base-2 or base-10 measures, (that is, GiB v. GB) sizes vary. so 14GiB might be 15GB01:01
macovock: also, note that the filesystem itself reserves 5% of space for root to be able to work to clean things out if the drive fills up01:01
p1oooopoh yeah, forgot about that01:02
drew212ActionParsnip: working on it, ill be back when it does/doesnt work01:02
sjmvock, you can check on space by (in a terminal window): du -ba | sort -n01:02
vockploooop: I did01:02
sjmvock, that should tell you what is taking up the space.01:02
vockmaco: it's saying that 14 GB is being used though, when going to the home folder in nautilus is only showing 300 MB01:02
p1oooopvock: hmm... did you use the disk tool that comes with ubuntu?01:03
vocksjm, i'll check that out now, didn't know those commands01:03
drew212ActionParsnip: should i use the B43 which is free, or the STA which is proprietary?01:03
macovock: are you including the dot files?01:03
p1oooopit does that with hidden folders01:03
macovock: i know my .kde is 1.8GB01:03
sjmvock, do you have nautilus set to show the hidden files?01:03
ActionParsnipdrew212: no idea, try one, if it works great, if not then use t'otherun01:03
vocksjm, wouldn't that still show up in used space? I'll double check01:03
vockI just lost another 500 MB some how01:04
sjmvock: du will show you all files and folders and the space they use.01:04

GArReTDoes that mean it's installed or not?01:05
vocksjm, did that it's still showing only 300 MB01:05
ActionParsnipvock: so you have a 15Gb partition with 500Mb used?01:05
sjmvock, did which?01:05
vockActionParsnip, 15 GB partition, df -h is saying it's 98% used, but in nautilus it's only showing me 500 MB01:05
ActionParsnipvock: sounds like the journal to me, is it using a jounalised file system01:06
vocksjm, i just did it in nautilus, i'm checking du now01:06
sjmvock, you can limit the depth of the tree du searches like this: du -ba --max-depth=1 | sort -n01:07
ActionParsnipvock: du -hs /* | sort -nr | head -n 20       should help01:07
GArReTuhm... any suggestion or help?01:07
vockdu shows sizes in bytes?01:08
ActionParsnipvock: yes, du -h    shows it human readable01:08
sjmvock it depends, du -b does01:09

KungFuBearHi folks. I really need some help. I just bought a new ASUS desktop pc and I'm trying to put Ubuntu on it. After having installed it once, then updating to 10.04, I no longer can access a graphical verison, (right now I'm in the F1 terminal). I can't even boot a linux cd.

KungFuBearJordan_U: yeah, I did notice the edit part, but what does holding SHIFT during boot do?02:05
KungFuBearJordan_U: and that was also my next question. I tried navigating to /etc/default/grub but that file doesn't exist02:06

RoastedI wouldnt think so, but I disabled compiz anyway to check it out03:13
rystraumfxfitz: Have you checked up on adding your commands at the end of ~/.bashrc?03:13

tenochslbMy lubuntu install on the old laptop brings this error "process 277 glibwarning getpwuid_r(): failed due to blah  blah. You think this is causing problems at all on the system. Most of the time it freezes on password screen03:14
DaekdroomRoasted, if it's not avaiable, it's probably not compatible with your videocard.03:14
fxfitzrystraum: If I add it to .bashrc, wouldn't I have to log in with SSH before the command is run?03:14
fxfitzrystraum: This might be easier: I want to start vncserver on boot.03:15
RoastedDaekdroom, I was told I should still install one regardless.03:15

jimi_coz_, Which one do you recommend?03:15
Sam_FisherHowdy Ya'll03:15
DaekdroomRoasted, ATI binary driver probably wouldn't install.03:15
RoastedDaekdroom, Roasted: fglrx dropped support for your card03:16
Roastedwell, fml03:16
DaekdroomRoasted, the opensource driver, on the other hand, should give excellent support for you card.03:16
Sam_FisherHow do i get my Logitech Fusion webcam to work when I need it? I have Cheese installed and had it work before. Now it just starts and spins a wheel and shuts down.03:16
DaekdroomRoasted, because I have a x200 as well.03:16

DaekdroomRoasted, yes03:17

RoastedDaekdroom, how can I obtain it? Ive never used an OS driver03:17
RoastedDaekdroom, well, it "works" I suppose03:17
fxfitzrystraum: And vncserver needs to be started as the user, right?03:17
RoastedDaekdroom, how can I tell if its in use?03:17
jimi_coz_, how can i tell?03:17
fxfitzfxfitz: Could I write a script that did like 'su fxfitz; vncserver'??03:17
IdleOnetenochslb: probably, ask in #lubuntu03:17
DaekdroomRoasted, lsmod | grep radeon should return a few lines if it's in use03:17

sebsebsebChaorain: 8.04 is still supported04:49
sebsebsebChaorain: untill the end of April next year04:50
puff_SKiTZO: Okay, I'll try that.04:50
Chaorainsebsebseb: not sure if it will work04:50
_SKiTZOpuff: im not familiar with the t43 but you could try getting a bootr media menu04:50
thune3niccoli: what does " xinput list" show for your touchpad?04:50
_SKiTZOpuff: exactly04:50

Chaorainunless, does anyone know of a list of TV tunners that work ith Mythbuntu04:51
fxfitziceroot: LOL well that didn't work out so well04:52
ANowlinChaorain: I've messed with it a littlebit in a VMWare machine.  I believe there is a selection (from quite a long list) that shows what it works with.  Might check the Mythbuntu site as well.04:53
switch10_anyone know how to open the keyboard shortcut GUI from the command line?  There is a bug in jolicloud, an Ubuntu based netbook distro, and I want to see what is going on.04:54
LoshkiChaorain: see also #mythtv-users04:54
_SKiTZOANowlin: the reason it doesnt always work is probably because the cd drive spends more time "settling" than the timeout for the boot manager in the bios wants to wait04:55
fxfitzaristo: Sooo it didn't work.04:55
ANowlin_SKiTZO: Huh?04:55
fxfitzaristo: Did you say I needed to edit the resolv.conf file?04:55
ANowlinI switched chanels for a sec04:55
aristofxfitz, yes you need to add nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX04:56
aristoreplace XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX with you isp dns address04:56
_SKiTZOANowlin: nm. i was talking about why booting from cd doesnt always work04:56

techzgon ubuntu 9.10, on every boot I have to disable bluetooth and re-enable wireless network to get connected to internet. Is there a way to fix this please?04:58
lfitzhi i posted this info on a website to allow easier reference to solve the problem.  NFS says /path does not support NFS export when I start the service. http://lfitz.bravehost.com/nfs-error.html04:59

Chaorainhow long is 10.04 supported?04:59
_SKiTZOi think since its lts its 3 years05:00
xanguaChaorain: 3 years desktop 5 server05:00
Chaorainlol, 3 years will work05:00
Chaoraintime for a new comp by then05:00

techzgon ubuntu 10.04, on every boot I have to disable bluetooth and re-enable wireless network to get connected to internet. Is there a way to fix this please?05:01
puff_SKiTZO: Bleah... okay, that didn't work.05:01
_SKiTZOpuff: what happened?05:01
puff_SKiTZO: I just tried completely excuding the HDD from the boot order, it still booted off the HDD.05:01
_SKiTZOheh that was odd05:01
aristotechzg, i think you can auto enable wireless by right click on it and edit settings05:02
_SKiTZOpuff: how about using that blue access button again?05:02
puff_SKiTZO: I noticed a bit in the BIOS about enabling the F12 key to pop up a boot selection menu, so I tried that.  f12, got the list of devices, selected CD, nope, still booted off the HD.05:02
puff_SKiTZO: The blue butto bascially just gets me into the BIOS menu.05:02
aristoand bluetooth go to Sistem -> preferences -> startup programs (or something like that)05:02
puff_SKiTZO: Well, it pops up a menu with "ESC to continue, F1 to get into BIOS, F2 to select startup device".05:03
techzgaristo, the wireless networks get discovered when i disable bluetooth05:03
aristoi have my desktop on spanish so i don't know how is exactly in english05:03

_SKiTZOpuff: is the CD itself put into the slot properly? atleast my w700 and x60 tablet hase removable cdroms05:03
aristofxfitz_ congrats05:03
fxfitz_aristo: The problem before was that the default gateway was deleted. :(05:03
MotilonHi, im geting error: unknown filesystem. grub rescue> what can I do???05:03
puff_SKiTZO: Seems to be in the slot okay, rotates freely.05:03
puff_SKiTZO: Well heck.05:03
fxfitz_aristo: Yeah. But I can't seem to get my interfaces file to work correctly. And /etc/init.d/networking restart doesn't seem to work. :(05:04
_SKiTZOpuff: i ment the cdrom drives.. not the platters05:04
fxfitz_aristo: So I've been restarting the computer every time I had to test (a pain)05:04
puff_SKiTZO: I just opened and closed the CD, and it popped up the "You have just inserted a blank CD".  Which is weird, since it actually did boot the once.05:04
puff_SKiTZO: The drive should be fine.  I burned the CD with this drive.05:04
aristofxfitx, there is a way to configure it for ifup05:05
_SKiTZOpuff: sure you did not at one point remove the cd and put in anoter one by mistake? :P05:05
aristoso when interface is linked up it will reconfigure05:05
fxfitz_aristo: Hmmm05:05
_SKiTZOpuff: does it manage to boot of other cds?05:05
aristobut can't remember exactly which file you need to edit05:06

Roasted_Roky, I just wanted to pick at someone whos set it up. I got the task of setting one up and I cant seem to find as much documentation on it as I like.06:05
RokyRoasted_: I understand your pain. heh. You do know that your going to need a somewhat prereq of knowing bits of mysql to setup it up yes?06:06
Rokyset it up*06:06
Roasted_Roky, well, yes - but I'm not entirely doing this alone. the network admin knows more about mysql than me, but hes less experienced in linux than I am, so were both kind of tag teaming it.06:07
bullgardaravind__: Yes. Your two messages combined make it a bit clearer what might be the cause. But it is still not enough information to help you out. Because "server not found" may be caused by many things.06:07
Roasted_Roky, we had a microsoft radius server set up, but theres an open bug MS has yet to fix which effects us greatly, so we need to find alternatives - and freeradius sounds to be a good one since uses said the MS bug doesn texist in freeradius06:07

aravind__bullgard: well...i cannot successfully connect to websites,google works fine(it maybe because its ip is cached),and certain others like facebook too work good06:09
Roasted_Roky, well we were using standard WPA2 security06:10
CalicoJackmaco I think you are right, though. Thank you for your help.06:10
Roasted_Roky, but high school students tend to get slick with the tools they find on the internet - couple that with usb flash drives and bingo bango - they can dig up the key without too much effort.06:10
aravind__bullgard: i just cant connect to other websites,i'm guessing its a dns issue?06:10
Roasted_Roky, so were hoping to take the key out of the equation with hardware authentication (this is where the network admin comes in and I tend to step back)06:10

RokyRoasted_ : well the radius server will support 128bit WEP rekeying every N seconds...sooo doubt your kiddies are that smart. lol06:11
Roasted_BinaryMan, I honestly cant tell you if we had or not. Weve done a lot of different things, but all of the radius options have had the same problem - after 30 days, they dont reauthenticate and need to be plugged in to re-authenticate properly. This is a known bug with MS Radius - which is why we dumped it in hopes of using freeradius (something users say works better anyway)06:11

Roasted_BinaryMan, it gives me an advantage, in my opinion. My relatively young age in the field working in a high school is a unique combo since I tend to be quicker to pick up on potential security holes than others since it wasnt long ago I was in those shoes.06:12
pehdenchanmode "+mnsdt-k"   does this mean invite only06:12
Roasted_kiamo, right lcick network manager - connection information, OR in terminal run ifconfig06:12
Roasted_Roky, hahaha yeah, good point.06:13
BinaryManRoasted_: I know exactly what you're talking about.06:13
Roasted_Roky, anyway, I take it youve set up freeradius before? Or are you just familiar with it?06:13
MaRk-Ikiamo: ifconfig06:13
BinaryManI was playing with Linux before I was a sophomore.06:13
kiamoRoasted, ifconfig only displays ethX connections06:13
Roasted_BinaryMan, I almost feel like a jerk though - its like a big brother feeling. Muahaha! Security hole plugged! *sad high schoolers faces*06:13
RokyRoasted_: I should let you guys know that open radius is fairly complex. And not knowing how to configure it properly could lead too disastrous results.06:13
kiamoisnt that just for ethernet, or does the wifi use that as well?06:13
BinaryMankiamo: No, it doesn't. It'll list all network adapters, even virtual/pseduo ones.06:14
Roasted_Roky, we're setting this up while letting our current security in place, so if it backfires, we can pull the plug and revert to what we've been using.06:14
RokyRoasted_: I have played with it a few times. Some friends of mine use it and have configured it multiple times. They call me in to "test" it xD06:14
Roasted_Roky, we're reimaging all laptops this summer, so what'll happen is we'll set up 2 SSID's in the mix with the proper settings. If the freeradius bombs on us, we just disable that SSID and the laptops re-vert accordingly.06:14
RokyI know the basics of the configuration. But after that your kind on your own bro.06:15
Roasted_Roky, I'm all about backups and plan B/C/D's :P06:15
kiamoBinaryMan, I only see eth0, eth1, and lo.  The wifi will be one of those then?06:15
freezwayi installed lmms by compiling it (i wanted 0.4.6) but it didn't work correctly. how do i remove it. sudo make uninstall doesn't work06:15
Roasted_kiamo, mor ethan likely its eth106:15
RokyRoasted_: You need to be in a world like this. hehe06:15
Roasted_Roky, so anyway, I know I need kerberos, samba, and mysql - right?06:15
kiamook, thanks :)06:15

kiamothanks guys :)06:16
Roasted_Roky, thats not installed by default?06:16
BinaryMankiamo: iwconfig will tell you which is the wireless adapter.06:16
MaRk-Ifreezway: are you invoking that comand inside the lmms folder?06:16
RokyRoasted_: It might be, It's been awhile since I have used Ubuntu to be honest. But it's more the program your interested in that Ubuntu. So it's not much differant.06:17
RokyI'm on Arch Linux as of the moment.06:17
Roasted_Roky, I have minimal PHPMyAdmin experience from using Wordpress - can I use PHPMyAdmin to add my administrator MySQL user, etc?06:17
freezwayMaRk-I, yes06:17

bullgardJordan_U: No. Note: The subject is dpkg.09:37

AltreusMy DNS seems to be cached. If I use dig to make the DNS request I get the correct answer back from the correct nameserver, but if I use curl or a browser it says cannot resolve host09:39
AltreusAny idea what could be  doing this? It's a fairly clean install of 10.0409:39
Jordan_Ubullgard: For instance, if you are installing 5 packages that need "update-initramfs" to be run before they will work, those packages can use a trigger so that instead of running update-initramfs directly in their postinst scripts, they register a trigger and update-initramfs is run when all five packages are otherwise completely configured.09:40
bullgardJordan_U: Your answer is wrong. This morning Update manager repeatedly displayed a »post-installation trigger« message.09:40
AltreusAlso, the site works for others.09:40

Jordan_Ubullgard: When plymouth gets upgraded it will probably need update-initramfs to be run, so it will register a post-install trigger for update-initramfs. If you also get a kernel update, that kernel package will also register a post-install trigger for update-initramfs (because it doesn't know that one has already been registered by plymouth). After both packages are otherwise finished installing, that update-initramfs trigger 10:04
Jordan_Ubullgard: So registering a trigger is asking that some action (in this case update-initramfs) be performed, and processing the trigger is actually performing that action.10:05
red2kicJonathanEllis: Maybe you can ask the man in charge. I don't know. Use cable grommets to make things look nice. :o10:06

youngmusicweird problem: after upgrading to 10.04, my network interface is known as wlan1 instead of eth0. I wouldn't mind as such, but when starting the network now, i get a DHCPOFFER from the server that doesnt really work out.10:09

[Neurotic]Quick question guys - is there a command to work out the name of the current X display that is running? Or even just list the names of the X displays that are available? I'm trying to send firefox to a particular display through 'firefox --display=0', and I can't work out where to send it.10:15
JonathanEllisJordan_U: Yes. It took ages to get that working (http://forum.tuxx-home.at/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=797&sid=a2008ef8840e4d109e28735551b169dd). Trouble is I was a bit limited for cards as I only have PCI slots, not AGP or PCI Express. Its an old computer10:15
eokexev: I'm still not sure it'll give you what you want as each package has dependencies which might not be used by anything else so removing the parent package means you remove the dependencies.10:16

eokexev: "dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Installed-Size;10}\t${Package}\n' | sort -k1,1n" however remember that a small package may depend on a very large one so it's not really going to tell you what you need to know.  It'll just tell you the size of the package itself rather than the package and all of the dependencies it requires.10:19

nikolamindus, worked for me till 9.1010:25
indusJonathanEllis, driver for what ? graphics?10:25
JonathanEllisnikolam: NO idea where to get it. I just use googlemaps.com and do screen captures10:25

ThatGuyOverTherered2kic: I'm just that much of a control freak. I have to customize it. :/10:36
MaRk-IreeniginEesreveR: then try "nohup"10:36
JonathanEllisindus: I suppose I dont know for sure but I remember problems even getting my onboard graphics to work with Karmic let alone the Matrox. When I read http://forum.tuxx-home.at/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=748 I just gave up trying. I think drilling a hole in the wall and running a cable may take less time than trying to upgrade.10:36
indusJonathanEllis, so just try with live cd then, its surely worth it10:36
indusJonathanEllis, if it works etc, then good10:37
JonathanEllisindus: Fair enough10:37
red2kicThatGuyOverThere: Is it worth breaking something? :)10:37
nikolamindus, but it needs to be maintained to work with newer kernel etc. Partially rewritten, etc. Linux kernel does not provide binary backward compatibility for drivers. and newer kernels just, say, changed that way they connect do graphics driver part. So we can Better behaving in the future. I support noone should care too much for so old hardware. I care and therefore I think only solution is to use older Stable kernel distros for tha10:37

LjLbugs_bugger: it's often like that. anyway if you're using the open-source ATI driver, maybe switching to the proprietary one would fix this; if you're using the Nvidia one, there are more than one version of it available in the repos, so you might possibly try another. it's just guesses though12:15

ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo12:17

Tricksrob_p i have to admit I'm supporting a range of ubuntu and centos webservers and they never give me any hassle. It's the windows clients that cause the trouble12:25
ActionParsniprob_p: same here, esx is fine. VM hosts running win 2003 give the grief12:25

phretorhi, what's wrong with this? sudo mount -o remount,noatime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid,nouser,data=writeback /dev/sda6 ? It says "mount: / not mounted already, or bad option"12:26
matteo1990ActionParsnip, Thx alot :) I'll give a look :)12:26
ActionParsnipphretor: you havent specified a mount point12:26
phretorah, damn it12:27
Dr_Willisunless fstab had an entry for /dev/sda612:27
rob_pTricks: CentOS is solid.  I use it for a VOIP gateway device for 2-way radio comms.  It's been very reliable.12:27
ActionParsnipphretor: the mount point must exist too, its not mounts job to make mount points12:27
phretorActionParsnip: I am remounting /12:27
ActionParsnipphretor: / will always exist :)12:27
Dr_Willisthats a lot of options to be using also. :)12:28

Tricksrob_p same here we have asterisk running on it never gone down, never been rebooted all i have to do it login once a month to clear down the call recordings12:28
indusphretor, yeah dont need that many options12:28

ActionParsniprob_p: its good fun but they are crappy IBMs so don't reboot properly on schedule which mean I gotta button the suckkas12:29

Dr_Willisphretor:  most of those options i think are the defaults anyway12:30

rob_pActionParsnip: Yeah, sometimes you have to deal with crappy hardware. Software can only do so much!12:30
Dr_Williswell remount and noatime.12:30

h-kanhi, some quick questions. How do you set runlevel 3 when there is no inittab and is there an easy way to manage what starts in different runlevels? like chkconfig on redhat systems?12:40
rob_pTricks: Yeah, pretty straight-forward.  Just keep in mind that the syntax of pretty much *all* config files for Bind9 are very particular.12:40
erUSUL!runlevels | h-kan12:40
ubottuh-kan: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.12:40
seasonfiveHi all ! I've a question for you guys: Why did ubuntu still perform a complete check disk from times to times ? i though that the need of complete check disk disappeared with ext212:40
ActionParsnipAciid: the saying is lost faith, not fate12:40
rob_pTricks: It's very easy to leave out a {, }, or a semi-colon, etc.12:41
erUSULseasonfive: what ws eliminated was the fsck after unclean shutdwon ( power outage ) no the periodic fsck performed every 30 mounts or so12:41
erUSULseasonfive: man tunefs12:41
Tricksrob_p, the only part that's a little confusing is that there's alot of reference to a TLD being used but in my case this isn't necessary because I mine is local12:42
seasonfiveerUSUL, thanks. But i though that ext3 has a fast recovery thanks to its journal ?12:42
Tricksrob_p, do I leave that stuff out?12:42

seasonfiveerUSUL, I mean i think i never had trouble reported by this periodical check12:42
rob_pTricks: I think it will complain if you leave it out.12:42

seasonfiveerUSUL, thanks for your answer. Do you have an idea of what errors can be discovered this way ? I though ext3 was near unbreakable (in regards of data inconsistency). Is it more a hardware check ?12:45
rob_pTricks: I never bothered with name resolution of local hosts.  But I do recall seeing examples of local only zone files floating around the 'Net.12:45
rob_pTricks: What's what used for? The TLD?  That12:46
rob_pTricks: That's what the zone is going to define.12:46
erUSULseasonfive: maybe an alpha ray comming from space flipped some bits in your no ECC RAM ( so no error detected or correctd) that affected filesystem metadata ..... :)12:46
NigelS!upstart | h-kan12:46
ubottuh-kan: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/12:46
Dr_Williskaushal:  you could at leaast summarize the issue - if you excpect anyone to go to a site to discuss it.12:46
NigelSh-kan: ubottu is a bot :)12:46
erUSULseasonfive: i do not find a chack every 30 mounts that cumbersome; you can up that number ( say do the check every 40 - 50 mounts )12:47
h-kanNigelS: i noticed that now ;)12:47
rob_pTricks: So you make up a local domain and then create the zone file for it.12:47
Tricksrob_p found a good thread so i'm going to read through that :)12:47

ActionParsniperUSUL: possibly ;) depends on many factors, but its offtopic here12:51

GArReTHey guys. I was here yesterday. I'm trying to make my USB modem work on my Ubuntu PC, but is in some way unsuccsessful. I plugged it in and I did a "lsUSB" and my modem was shown there, but I dont know if Ubuntu installed it or not... It needs to connect via PPPoE... Do I need software that i need to install or what?13:06

blue_annaseasonfive, there's no segfaults, nothing in the logs13:12
ylmfosthank you bazhang13:12
blue_annaseasonfive, not even if I remove and plug in USB hardware does it interrupt13:13
blue_annaseasonfive, or if I let it run for an hour13:13
seasonfiveblue_anna, from what i know, nothing crash without logs. Sounds like hardware/driver problem more than libc related. But i can be wrong :)13:13
blue_annaseasonfive, hmm -- well like you pointed it, it isnt technically crashing. it's freezing13:14
blue_annabut it just keeps on freezing all day long :P13:14
seasonfiveblue_anna, So everything was fine, then installed this new libc, then just after everything froze ?13:14
blue_annashortly after, its been like 3 times now that it's frozen13:15

seasonfiveblue_anna, but i will be surprised that your problem is libc related13:25

Wil_sydrazz1: sounds like sshd cannot listen to port 22 because something else is using it. This post has some troubleshooting steps to find what is using a particular port....   http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-331673.html14:04
cheater99mouser--: do you mean the laplink from laplink.com?14:04
mouser--cheater99: Yeah. I have version 5 running on the source computer.14:05
vu1kanadditonally, it appears to be updating when i hit the button or when i <apt-get update>, but i'm still not seeing the packages in synaptic (sorry 'bout the multi line)14:05
cheater99mouser--: i bet you it's just a normal parallel cable.14:06
cheater99mouser--: in which case you can just use the faq :)14:07
mouser--cheater99: I'm also dual-booting with WinXP Pro, but from what I've read, XP doesn't support parallel the same way as previous versions of Windows do.  Sure, it's a normal parallel cable.  I just bought it the other day.14:07

jribsc30317: if it's down, use a different key server14:13

cheater99ActionParsnip: actually, i'm confused. not sure. how do i check?14:37
trizicusActionParsnip: I found a link however it requires linux installed... I can't install linux so I cant customize ubuntu...14:37
ActionParsnipcheater99: then you will need to add it in /boot/grub/menu.lst to the end of each kernel line14:37
iksikindus, erm, everything... when You gain a root privilages, you can do enything... i'm using ubuntu on one local server, thats why i'm veeeery interested with some patch on this issue ;/14:37
koskossorry im new14:38
koskosbut how i do that :$14:38
cheater99ah there's menu.lst, found it14:38
induskoskos, tell me clearly what is it you are trying to do14:38
ActionParsniptrizicus: you'll need a workbench to work in so yes you will need linux installed, or if you have a tone of ram you can do it in the live cd14:38
cheater99so for example i have: kernel    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-14-generic root=UUID=91998c61-9582-4840-9ef9-5c467deaf1f8 ro quiet splash14:38

Dr_Willisbarfster:  gui. and avail for linux and windows14:39
mnemochello, is there any mirror of keyserver.ubuntu.com?14:39

Pici!enter | koskos14:44
ubottukoskos: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!14:44
induskoskos, you need to enter python shell14:44
rob_piksik: I was mistaken!  I was ssh'd into an older box when I tried it.  On Ubuntu 10.04, it does indeed give the user ownership of /etc/shadow!  WOW!14:44

induskoskos, http://www.ibiblio.org/g2swap/byteofpython/read/14:47
blablubbTricks: Ok, I thought that lingray.uk was your domain. You shouldn't use existing toplevel domains like .com .uk. Use something like .mine or .internal (not .local) instead.14:47
Picikoskos: The python help channel is #python14:47
induskoskos, if the module is not in your namespace, it wont import for custom modules14:47

rwwindus: you, when you expressed surprise about ubottu saying "is optional"14:55

blablubbAnarchy7: You're right - if you don't even see the wireless networks on windows anymore, than the problem is not related to the password manager.15:08

Tricksblablubb, ah ok thanks for that, so how does bind know where lingray.internal is? I get this error: localhost_resolver/lingray.internal/IN: bad zone15:09
barfsterIsn‘t it possible to make a bootable memory stick with dd and fdisk?15:09
rystraumbarfster: Make your own Live CD without GUI tools?15:09

dubeyActionParsnip : getting GPG error15:10
Tricksblablubb, shouldn't there be a DNS entry so any requests made to lingray.internal goes to my internal DNS server15:10
slavhello :)15:10
blablubbTricks: In the named.conf (or somethimes named.conf.local) you tell Bind that it is reponsible for lingray.internal and where to find the zone file. There should be a paragraph starting with "zone "lingary.internal" in {"15:10
bihariyes there is no one which supports voice chat in rooms15:11
ActionParsnipdubey: ok whats the error?15:11
usr13rystraum: What exactly are you wanting to do?15:11
barfsterActionParsnip: Now we are talking :-)15:11
usr13rystraum: You said you wanted just command line?  Right?15:11
Tricksblablubb, ah so that's how bind knows15:11
barfsterActionParsnip: You are suggesting I should use the MiniCD and install on the memory stick?15:11
ActionParsnipbarfster: if you want to go even lower, use gentoo15:11
dubeyActionParsnip : http://pastebin.com/spam.php?i=6ZDixrsX15:12
rystraumusr13: barfster wants to make a bootable external device via CLI.15:12
barfsterAnd the memory stick should then be bootable from anywhere?15:12
blablubbTricks: Yes, the clients know by asking their nameserver. Which in this case should be the same machine where your bind is running on.15:12
usr13rystraum: Ok, sorry.  I missunderstood.15:12
ActionParsnipbarfster: theres a minimal iso (12mb) you can install and get just a boot loader, kernel and some modules with a few commands15:12
_genuser_Hello People.15:12
Anarchy7this can be the reason ...15:12
rystraumbafster: Unetbootin has command line options.15:12
^mNotIntelligenthi !15:13
_genuser_I have checked multiverse in the source repos. but a package that is supposed to be (chntpw) in the multiverse isn't being downloaded.15:13
lhavelundDoes anyone have a clue why I can't ./run this file? -rwxr-xr-x 1 lhavelund lhavelund 1235200 2010-07-08 16:12 gc.run15:13
_genuser_Is there anything I can do to verify that the changes took effect?15:13
barfsterActionParsnip: That is my regular install CD :-) So that one I know.15:13
rystraumand for the record, the ability to boot from external devices would depend on the BIOS settings of the particular computer.15:13

ActionParsnipbarfster: that will install the whole system, if you want to build up you need to start lower15:14
