b14ckHey all. I've got a ubuntu-server 8.04 box here. I'm trying to upgrade to 10.04. Is there an easy way to do this? I've already done: `aptitude update; aptitude safe-upgrade; aptitude dist-upgrade;`01:12
b14ckBut now it is saying there are no new updates available.01:12
b14ckI really need to upgrade because I need access to python 2.6.x, whereas the current version I have is 2.5.x01:12
b14ckAny help would be appreciated :)01:12
b14ckactually, i think i may have figured it out01:14

qman__b14ck, dist-upgrade is not a release upgrade, it simply installs all the updates even if it has to add new packages02:11
qman__if you want to upgrade to lucid, you need to run `sudo do-release-upgrade`02:11
CarleasIs there a way to test key authentication before disabling password login?02:25
CarleasI want to lock down my server so it only accepts ssh logins from keys, but I don't want to lock myself out if I've set things up incorrectly.02:25
pmatulisCarleas: of course, just log in.  key auth. occurs before passwd auth02:28
CppIsWeirdhow do you execute two commands consecutively in one line on bash?02:28
pmatulisCarleas: but if you're worried, just keep another session open02:29
pmatulisCppIsWeird: separate them with a semicolon02:29
qman__if the second command depends upon the first, use &&02:29
CppIsWeirdpmatulis, perfect, thanks. :-)02:30
CarleasThanks, pmatulis. I feel a little silly.02:30
CarleasIs using key authentication sufficient protection?  I've seen suggestions to change the port to something other than 22, is that necessary in addition?02:31
qman__changing your port will only reduce your exposure, at the cost of the annoyance of having to specify the port every time you connect02:32
qman__I wouldn't bother with that02:32
CppIsWeirdi seem to be getting a strange scrolling sideways output when i watch tail /alogfile02:32
pmatulisCarleas: you can do that to get off the radar of 95% of the simple scripts people use for dictionary attacks02:53
pmatulisCarleas: those kind of attacks won't work if you're using key auth. but your logs won't fill up needlessly02:54
pmatulisCarleas: also, your client config can be altered to use the non-standard port so it's not an annoyance02:54
pmatulisCarleas: specifying protocol 2 is also highly recommended but i believe that is the default these days (used to accept both 1 and 2)02:56
CppIsWeirdim trying to use the 'watch' command with a file that displays improperly with its non printing characters removed. in the manual watch says use cat -v in the commands pipeline. i've tried this every way i know how and either it still displays strange or it gets hung up.02:56

jessezylstraHello. I run a server that had a problem after the upgrade to 10.04. I have no desktop enviroment, I am running Ubuntu Server, and when I go to the server everything is duplicated three times on the screen, tiny, blurry, and stretched-looking because, for some reason, the resolution changed. My monitor only supports 640xWhateveritis, and it is running at something higher. How do I fix this?03:51
=== [1]Kaffien is now known as Kaffien
SpamapSjessezylstra: you may need to add a boot argument to reduce the resolution04:33
SpamapSjessezylstra: try adding 'vga=785', do you know how to edit your grub command line?04:34
GeekmanHey, I found a command a while back (few months I think) which recursively listed the permissions of all files and folders in a directory, which I could then direct to a file.  Then I could use a similar command to take that file and use it to restore the permissions.  I completely forget what commands they were, but I think I needed to install an additional package.  Can anyone think of what it might be that I'm thinking of?04:43
ccheneykirkland, how do i determine the set of packages that uec normally installs to have pxe install as well?04:49
ccheneykirkland, i set it to 'minimal' but that seems obviously wrong04:49

* ccheney thinks the uec.py should be doing that already04:50
ccheneyeucalyptus-udeb eucalyptus/install-mode multiselect cloud, walrus, cluster, storage  should do that i think04:51
ccheneymaybe i need to trigger  eucalyptus-udeb to be installed better than it is currently04:52

electrofreakI have / on a RAID1... and it happens to be resyncing right now... will the boot process wait for that to finish before booting?08:00
electrofreakotherwise... I dunno what is wrong with my server08:00
electrofreakRAID1 is md-raid08:00
qman__no, syncing is an operation that can be done post-boot08:01
twbmd array resyncing is done in a background kernel thread.08:01
electrofreakthat's what I thought08:01
twbIf you reboot, it'll start again from scratch unless you have those bitmap thingies08:02
electrofreakoh hi twb08:02
electrofreakbitmap thingies?08:02
twbSome optional md thing that allows it to remember what bits are synced08:02
electrofreakbut it shouldn't hold up the boot process?08:03
twbI don't know much about it, I just heard it mentioned in a LUG08:03
qman__no, it should not affect the boot process08:03
twbelectrofreak: it won't hold the boot process; it might make it SLIGHTLY slower08:03
qman__except for maybe slightly reduced disk performance08:03
electrofreakthen.... I need to figure out why my server wont boot08:03
electrofreakI let it go for like 10 minutes....08:04
electrofreakfinally hit ctrl-alt-del and it shut some crap down, and rebooted....08:04
qman__that's not very long08:04
qman__longer than it should be taking, but still not very long08:04
qman__it might be fscking a big partition08:04
electrofreaksame thing... it's literally just sitting here08:05
electrofreakmonitor has nothing interesting on it.... some ureadahead-other error... which I googled and is apparently be908:05
electrofreakI went in with a livecd... saw that my array was rsyncing...08:06
electrofreakand was able to mount it and poke around.... but none of the logs are showing anything from the boot process08:06
electrofreakso now, I'm sitting here waiting for it to boot again08:07
qman__did you press escape?08:07
electrofreakqman__: just did....08:07
electrofreakintersting..... now it's booting08:07
qman__that's a new "feature"08:07
electrofreakwhat did I press escape to?08:07
qman__unhides the important boot information08:07
electrofreakI have to be honest.... usually my server is headless.... i'd rather not have to deal with such "features"08:08
qman__I agree wholeheartedly08:08
electrofreakis it likely stopping for that ureadahead message?08:08
electrofreakbecause, it seems like I should get to the bottom of that if that's the case.08:09
qman__well, I'd have to see the whole thing to know08:09
electrofreakthere was also a message about md0 being clean08:10
electrofreakand a fsck version print above that08:10
electrofreakthat's it.08:10
qman__what size are your partitions08:10
electrofreakeh, like ~150GB08:11
electrofreaktwo 160GB drives...08:11
qman__probably fscking then08:11
electrofreakswap array and / array08:11
qman__give it more time08:11
electrofreaknow this splash screen is going forever.08:11
electrofreakqman__: it said it was clean?08:11
electrofreakand now I see no disk IO08:12
qman__ok, then that's not it08:12
qman__you would see disk I/O08:12
qman__but you probably wouldn't see the fsck progress08:12
qman__another side effect of the new "feature"08:12
electrofreakyea, I did until I presume it finished resyncing08:12
electrofreakgosh, there is no output at all.... this splashscreen sucks08:14
qman__it has certainly caused me plenty of headaches08:14
qman__my file server has a > 5TB array on it08:15
qman__I can no longer monitor fsck progress on boot08:15
electrofreak...I might know the problem... altho really it shouldn't hold up the boot process....08:15
qman__I just have to wait 4 hours to see if it finishes or crashed08:15
electrofreakI turned off my large ass RAID5 to help troubleshoot this crap...08:15
electrofreakand that mounts...08:15
qman__turned off?08:15
electrofreakI should make it noauto08:15
electrofreak(pulled the drives)08:16
qman__that would do it08:16
qman__especially if it mounts to an important location08:16
electrofreakmaybe.... I just restarted and I'm waiting again...08:16
electrofreakdarn it....08:17
electrofreaktheres no disk IO now.... with the RAID5 on...08:18
electrofreakthis is really frustrating that there is no output...08:19
electrofreakhow do I grab the grub menu?08:23
electrofreakthere is no message like there used to be08:24
qman__I think you have to press shift or something08:35
qman__I don't know, I don't like grub2 at all either08:35
Jordan_Uelectrofreak: Hold shift during boot to see the grub menu (Ubuntu hides it by default).08:49
electrofreakqman__: figured out the problem... had yet another thing in fstab that was mounting that really shouldn't. I've learned my lesson... it wont happen again :-(08:52
electrofreakqman__: if you're still up (almost 4am here)... good night.08:52

qman__I use ext3 on my big file server too, never let me down16:10
qman__but mine's only ~5TB16:10
qman__ext4 maxes at 1EB16:10
qman__that is, approximately one million terabytes16:11
jmitchellahh, qman__ if you up the block size then it can go up to 32TB16:11
jmitchellthe block size must then be 8k16:11
qman__yeah, but I think there was something else preventing me from using block sizes greater than 4k16:12
qman__I don't remember what, specifically though16:12
jmitchellshweet, so when i outgrow my 1.3tb volume and it's time for the 20tb volume, i can move to ext416:12
qman__and it wasn't a performance thing16:12
jmitchelli'm sure it will be ready then16:12
jmitchellqman, on 4k blocks u can do 16tb16:12
jmitchellso u'r sorted ;)16:13
qman__guess that array was bigger than I remembered16:13
qman__then 13TB would be fine16:13
qman__and ext3 is definitely my recommendation for reliability16:13
jmitchellyeah, but only if he gets the blocks right before16:13
jmitchellno moving to bigger block size after16:13
qman__that's with 4k16:13
jmitchellnot that i know a way of16:13
qman__so no problems16:13
qman__ah, this was it16:14
jmitchellqman__, do you also remove the journal and then increase volume size?16:14
qman__In Linux, 8 KB block size is only available on architectures which allow 8 KB pages, such as Alpha.16:14
qman__can't do 8k blocks on x86 with linux16:14
jmitchelloh, ok then it's 4k for us, but 16tb is quite shweet none the less16:15
qman__no, I leave journaling on16:15
qman__pretty much defaults16:15
qman__it's a good tradeoff16:15
jmitchellhmm, what procedure do u use to increase the volume size then when you add raid capacity?16:15
qman__still performs better than the atrocious NTFS, and it's a lot more reliable16:15
jmitchellntfs is poo, i agree16:16
qman__I did a simple ext3 grow16:16

EtienneGcoffeedude, come on, it's going to be an easy one!16:42
EtienneGcoffeedude, regarding upgrading from karmic to lucid; I understand going from lw 4.x to 5.x requires some manual steps16:43
EtienneGas the way the configuraiton is handled have changed16:43
coffeedudeEtienneG, The upgrade is handled as part of the deb install.  But you probably want to look at the likewise-open-test PPA16:44
EtienneGcoffeedude, it has been suggested to me that removing /var/lib/likewise-open/db/registry.db, and re-importing the registry files in /etc/likewise would be enought16:44
coffeedudeEtienneG, and yes, 5.4 is very different from 4.x16:44
EtienneGcoffeedude, yes, that I know16:44
coffeedudeRemoving registry.db will wipe the current state and you will have to rejoin.16:45
EtienneGcoffeedude, I will have a look at the PPA.  I was under the impression that upgrading from 4 in karmic to 5 in lucid was not supported, but if you say it is, then great!16:45
EtienneGcoffeedude, thanks for the info.  i will test a bit, and come back with questions I might have.  who is looking after the Ubuntu packages at Likewise now?16:47
coffeedudeEtienneG,  I'm handing off to Scott Salley here (hopefully).  But i'll still be involved.  Just feel bad about not getting the SRU done yet.16:48
raywanghello, does anyone try to install a 64bit guest on a 32bit host in KVM?16:49
EtienneGcoffeedude, no worry, I wasn't even aware there is an SRU in the pipeline!16:49
raywangwell, nobody install a 64bit VM on 32bit operating system? :)16:51
raywanghello? anyone is familiar with virtualization? I appreciate a lot. :)16:57
oru_workhow can i archive a directory with all the contents with tar ?17:02
raywangoru_work, doesn't 'tar cjf  filename.tar.bz2 directory' help?17:03
oru_workraywang, yeah i was doing tar czfv17:04
raywangoru_work, i was wonder are you concerned about those hidden files?17:10
raywangoru_work, after a quick googling, hope this can help http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/how-to-tar-dot-files-354591/17:10
RoyKrapha: if you just give the directoyr name, it'll take it all, if you say dirname/* hidden files will be lost17:19
oru_workhow can I really make sure that php errors are logged ?17:29
raphaRoyK: sure you mean me?17:29
RoyKrapha: no, autocomplete led me to you, since mr/ms/mrs raywang left befour I could answer - sorry about that :)17:30
RoyKoru_work: php.ini is your friend17:31
RoyKoru_work: usually under /etc/php/apache(something17:31
jjohansenandreserl: I'm not sure I follow what your asking?  Do you want to know where to find the connector constants for a given module? (include/linux/connector.h)17:36
andreserljjohansen, yep that's what I wanted, and I already have it. Thanks though :)17:37
RudyValenciaHm, I want to offer some basic Web hosting services to a select few friends. Is there a good (and free) cPanel equivalent that won't mangle my server's configuration up too much?17:37

RudyValenciaI think I'll use the successor to VHCS - ispCP17:49
andreserljjohansen, btw.. I have one quick question and you might be the one that can help me. DRBD starting from 2.6.33 is in mainline kernel... I just installed maverick server and couldn't find any drbd module. Does this mean that the module is not being compiled with the kernel shipped in maverick?17:50
RudyValenciaEh, perhaps a subdomain based on the user's Linux username would be easier to handle.17:51
jjohansenandreserl: currently it isn't17:53
andreserljjohansen, will it be?17:53
jjohansenmaybe, need to check why it isn't being compiled17:53
jjohansenit may just be an oversight/missed config17:53
andreserljjohansen, ok, cool, because current package uses DKMS, but since now the module is included in the kernel, I'd think is best to use that module and drop DKMS17:54
jjohansenandreserl: yes, and that is probably how it got missed, I'll submit a patch for Maverick17:56

kusznirHi all: how do I change my software source on a ubuntu-server install without X (command line only)?  I want to select one of the specific mirrors listed in the software source selector tool in the gui.18:59
kusznir(currently its using us.archive.ubuntu.com, which is WAY slower than the mirror sitting on the same gigabit interface: ubuntu.eecs.wsu.edu :)18:59
_rubenkusznir: edit /etc/apt/sources.list18:59
kusznirUmm...there are a TON of lines there...I tried to do a global replace, and my apt didn't work afterward.19:00
kusznirIs there a tool that I can run that will just select that mirror, or do I have to replace specific lines of that file?  (and if so, how do I know which lines to change and which to leave the same, etc?)19:00
_rubendoing a find and replace on us.archive.ubuntu.com to ubuntu.eecs.wsu.edu should work just fine, unless the later doesn't have a working/proper mirror setup19:01

talcitehey guys. is it normal for a 2 year old, 12 disk linux soft Raid 6 device to only achieve 26mb/s on rebuild?19:19
talciteit seems pretty slow since each disk should be able to put out at least 50 mb/s19:19
patdk-wkhow so?19:22
patdk-wkthe disks have nothing to do with it, for the most part19:23
patdk-wkwhat is the stripe size?19:23
patdk-wkwhat happens, is it has to read the data off of 11 disks, calculate what should be on the new disk, and write it to the new disk19:23
patdk-wknormally it's the cpu or pci bus that limits speed19:24
patdk-wkif the drives are connected using a pci bus, that is 100mb/s max19:24
patdk-wkso a write speed of 8mb/s19:25
orudiecan anyone help me with a command to grep for error_reporting on my entire /etc/apache directory?19:25
patdk-wkif you can maxout pcix, that would be 32mb/s19:25
kusznirI'm trying to set up a cups print server.  I've installed cups and an assortment of cups-related packages on an otherwise bare 10.04 server install.  I'm trying to manage it remotely.  I've edited the one line in cupsd.conf for Listen to set it to *:631.  I can now connect from my management workstation (http://<hostname>:631), but all I get is 403: forbidden.19:46
kusznirThe cups log doesn't give any information about it (in fact, it normally doesn't even log anything for my connect attempts in this way).  I enabled debug mode, and only got "normal-looking" output; nothing remotely like an error/problem.19:47
zuldamn you php...damn you19:49
kusznirahh..by default, all the allow,deny lines only allow for localhost...strange default.19:50

CppIsWeirdhow do i compile a new 10.04 kernel with dom0 support?22:07
SnakeNutsHello all. I need to have a quick verification to see if I'm doing things right: I have a server I only have remote (SSH) access to and I want to set up a firewall. If I use 'ufw' and I do 'sudo ufw allow ssh/tcp' and the 'sudo uwf enable', am I doing it in the right order to _not_ lock myself out? (I did so yesterday by installing eBox and its firewall plug-in. I had to have my VM re-installed...)22:08
patdk-wkwell, considering the following is here22:09
patdk-wk-A ufw-before-input -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT22:09
patdk-wk-A ufw-before-output -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT22:09

SnakeNutspatdk-wk: Thanks. I'm sadly not very well versed in iptables or the like, so I don't really know what those two lines mean. (I'm assuming they're in the default settings), could you enlighten me perhaps?22:11
patdk-wkwell, if you have the conntrack module loaded22:12
patdk-wkit tracks your connections22:12
patdk-wkso if it is tracking your ssh connection, and the connection is OPEN (ESTABLISHED), it will allow it, without checking the rest if your firewall rules22:12
patdk-wkas you don't have the conntrack module tracking yet, you need that ssh allow22:13
patdk-wkonce ufw starts it will start conntrack22:13
patdk-wkand will notice it and add it to the list22:13
patdk-wkbut for the future, restarting ufw and that, your ssh would be safe, cause of those lines22:13
SnakeNutsOk, that makes sense. Thanks a lot for that! I'll read up on the conntrack module too. Cheers!22:14
