crankyadminHi there, Will ruby1.9 every become the default version in 10.04LTS server edition?10:45
twb10.04 is released, therefore it is stable.  That's "stable" as in "does not change".  So if it isn't already the default, it's unlikely to become so.10:48
crankyadminCool thanks.10:50
RoyKtwb: that definition of "stable" is nonesense - feature-freeze != stable10:57
RoyKbut then, 10.04 _is_ fairly stable10:57
twbFreezes happen before the release.10:57
RoyKyeah, but "stable" != "feature-frozen"10:57
twbAs at the release, it becomes stable.  There are exceptions (notably, security patches), but these are exceptions.10:57
RoyKyou said `That's "stable" as in "does not change"`10:58
RoyKthat's abusing the word `stable`10:58
RoyK"does not change" is "feature-frozen", and has nothing to do with the word "stable"10:59
RoyKthe only other place I've seen mixup of that was from the AsteriskPBX guys, but then, that project is a mess and is pretty far from any type of stability10:59
crankyadminSo am I correct in assuming that 'apt-get install ruby' will never install ruby1.9?10:59

sherrQuestion about KVM and LV - In Xen, an LV is seen/inserted into a guest as a partition (e.g. xvda1). In KVM, an LV is is seen as an entire disk in the guest i.e. /dev/vdb.16:59
patdk-wkactually, in xen it's optional16:59
patdk-wkI do it both ways16:59
patdk-wkI personally feel inserting it as a partition is evil16:59
sherrIs there a problem (downside) to not putting a partition table on the LV inside the guest (vdb1) and just a filesystem on the entire device vdb? This seems "cleaner".16:59
patdk-wksherr, generally you will be fine17:00
patdk-wkbut some things will freak out, and *install* a partition table for you17:00
sherrThanks - it seems to work OK, but just planning.17:00
patdk-wkI have run without a partition table on systems for awhile, and it works17:00
sherrI *am* concerned about compatibility and data safety.17:00
patdk-wkbut when I tried openfiler, it wipes the drive if it doesn't have a partition table17:00
sherrThanks. I will note that concern about things like OpenFiler - don;'t think it will affect me.17:02
patdk-wkya, openfiler I know will screw it up :)17:02
patdk-wkhaven't had anyhting else yet, but I normally don't use gui stuff17:02
sherrI think I am going to have to search LP for bugs and probably log one though - trying to use "virsh" to "attach-disk" (hotplug) will hang the guest.17:03
sherrNot a show-stopper for me, but a shame.17:03
patdk-wkya, I haven't used kvm at all, but lots of xen17:03
patdk-wkswitching them all over to vmware though17:04
sherrI use Xen too ... but have had to switch to KVM because of new hardware.17:04
sherrDebian Stable/Xen - unsupported h/w. Debian Testing/Xen - unstable ... so, on Ubuntu Lucid 10:04 now :-)17:05
patdk-wkI'm still in 8.0417:05
patdk-wkcause of xen17:05
patdk-wkonce the move to vmware is good, it will all be 10.0417:05
patdk-wksome have already moved17:06
sherrI don't know VMware well enough. And I need to provision a new server this week - with something I can support ...17:08
oru_workI exported a database before running a script which caused problems, now i want to restore it to what it was before I ran the script. I exported databse in phpmyadmin, so how can I go about restoring it?17:09

zeeeeeeHow do i disable the initial password to my server-  if i remote reboot, I lose connection, and have to manually take my keyboard and plug it into my server box and enter a password...18:54
SpamapSzeeeeee: like, a BIOS password?18:56
zeeeeeehmmm it seems like it's some sort of hd access password- once I enter it, it gives me the ubuntu-server main info page18:57
zeeeeeebut there's no way (that I've figured out) to enter the password remotely18:58
zeeeeeeupon rebooting18:58
zeeeeeesurely it was some setting I enabled during install18:58
patdk-wkyou can't19:07
patdk-wkif that is a harddrive password19:07
patdk-wkthat has to be entered long before ubuntu starts19:07
patdk-wkto disable it is annoying, if possible19:08
zeeeeeeit's harddrive encryption that i installed w/ubuntu server.  oi vei..  is there some encryptfs file I can delete?19:13
patdk-wkwhole disk encryption?19:14
patdk-wknormal encryption setup by ubuntu is on the user level, not the whole system19:14
patdk-wkseems really pointless to have an encrypted system, where the system can boot without a password19:16
patdk-wkI can only guess your used cryptsetup to do it19:16
patdk-wkand in that case you need to modify your /etc/crypttab file19:16
patdk-wk3rd field, sets the password19:18
patdk-wkyou will have to remake your initrd files19:19

ubottuUnderbyte, please see my private message20:57
peeps[work]i restarted my server, and apache did not appear to start as normal.  i was able to start it manually, but i don't know why it didn't start on it's own, it worked ok before21:05
peeps[work]i also noticed this yesterday on my laptop running ubuntu, that boincd did not start when I rebooted.  is this a recent bug in ubuntu21:06
peeps[work]not sure if that issue is related but it seems like it21:06

qman__could be a race condition problem, but you'd have to do some testing to make sure21:10
=== Guest76109 is now known as ericboehs
peeps[work]qman__, how would i test such a thing?21:12
qman__I'm not exactly sure of the best way to go about that, far as logging the information21:13
qman__but a race condition is when something (ie apache) tries to start before something it depends on (ie the network) has finished starting, and fails21:14
peeps[work]if it attempted to start during boot and failed, would it be in any particular log file?  i don't know very well what everything in /var/log relates to21:14
qman__but then would start fine once the system is booted and you try it manually21:14
qman__it would21:14
qman__probably messages or syslog21:14
qman__there would also probably be something in apache/error.log21:14
peeps[work]qman__, what files configure what is run on startup?21:21
qman__I don't know where they're at now, since the change to upstart21:22
qman__looks like I still have /etc/init.d/apache221:23
peeps[work]how does it know to call /etc/init.d/apache2.  is there a file that lists what to call in init.d, or what order?   or does it just automatically call everything in etc/init.d21:24
qman__well, there used to be sysvinit configuration, but now it's all upstart21:25
qman__looks like apache is still started the sysv way, just through upstart21:25
peeps[work]actually i had boinc on this server as well, and that doesn't start either21:28
qman__ah, it still has the rc?.d file structure21:28
qman__update-rc.d should work too21:28
peeps[work]*sigh* i don't understand this well enough.  i just don't get what could have broken it when it all worked fine before21:29
peeps[work]dammit i'm a software developer not a sysadmin21:30
qman__well, if you still have /etc/rc[2,3,4,5].d/S91apache221:31
qman__it's telling apache to start21:31
peeps[work]qman__, ://paste.ubuntu.com/463152/21:32
peeps[work]i don't have any rc*.d/*apache21:33
qman__well, that explains it21:34
qman__not sure how it happened21:34
qman__sudo update-rc.d apache2 defaults21:35
qman__ought to fix it21:35
qman__sudo update-rc.d apache2 defaults 9121:35
peeps[work]what's 91 for?21:36
qman__that's the ordering21:36
qman__without it, it defaults to 20, which could cause it to start before it can run21:36

peeps[work]apache2, cups, boinc-client, maybe others that i haven't noticed yet22:51
peeps[work]they worked fine days before.  i restarted today and they did not come up automatically22:51
thesheff17__well I really new to 10.04 but I have still been using /etc/init.d/ scripts fine for apache2 and boinc22:51
peeps[work]and i tried another reboot and they didn't come up again22:52
qman__apache is still a sysv script, but upstart is doing all the sysv work now22:52
thesheff17__eventually will the init scripts go away?22:52
peeps[work]i have some cron jobs i added recently, which might take a long time to run, could this possibly cause problems?22:53
peeps[work]that's the only thing i can think that's really changed22:53
thesheff17__apache should be instant22:53
qman__only if they run on startup22:53
peeps[work]i just put them in cron.daily, cron.weekly, cron.monthly.  i don't know if those get called on startup or not22:54
thesheff17__what is the method for adding a service to startup...I'm assuming update-rc.d is going to go away as well22:54
thesheff17__you shouldn't be starting services through cron22:54
qman__he isn't22:54
thesheff17__well for startup at least22:54
peeps[work]i'm not starting service through cron, i'm just saying the only thing that's changed is i added some cron jobs, they back up my files22:55
thesheff17__oh ok22:55
qman__anything in cron.daily, etc would only run on startup if you start up at the time it picked arbitrarily to run daily jobs22:55
qman__which would only be about a one minute window in the day22:55
thesheff17__do you still use update-rc.d for starting scripts on reboot?22:56
thesheff17__services I mean22:56
