RoyKUbuntu surprises me a little - a 24 core box running with a load of 25 or so hardly uses time for sys01:31

iswIs anyone familure with or have documentation on switching from DHCP to static IP address on ubuntu 10.04?01:46
qman__isw, man interfaces02:19
qman__I'm having trouble trying to upgrade one of my servers to lucid from hardy, it says "Dist-upgrade failed: 'E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.'", but I can't figure out what packages are causing the problem. Here's the full logs from the failed upgrade: http://pastebin.com/unNUbvwh02:29
qman__I also noticed that early on it lists a whole bunch of old packages that aren't installed, and the log says "skipping"02:30
pmatulisqman__: bad problem for a friday night02:33
qman__yeah, it's not urgent, just had some time and decided to give it a go02:34
pmatulisqman__: was hardy all up to date before the upgrade?02:34
qman__double checked and even rebooted just before02:35
pmatulisqman__: are you holding/pinning any packages?02:35
qman__I didn't set any, where do I check to make sure?02:35
pmatulistry 'dpkg --get-selections | grep hold'02:35
qman__comes up empty02:36
pmatulisqman__: what about PPAs?  using any?02:37
qman__and I'm fairly sure I didn't compile anything from source, either02:38
pmatulisqman__: how did you perform the upgrade?02:38
qman__if I did, it would probably show up in those logs, right?02:38
qman__sudo do-release-upgrade -d02:39
qman__well, do-release-upgrade doesn't work yet02:39
qman__since 10.04.1 isn't out yet02:39
pmatulisi don't understand02:40
kklimondaqman__: may be a transitory problem with some kernel update in lucid02:40
qman__without the -d, I get no updates available02:40
pmatuliswhy do you need 10.04.1 to upgrade to 10.04?02:40
kklimondaqman__: linux-image-2.6.32-24-386 is still in lucid-proposed02:40
pmatulisoh, maybe you have -proposed enabled02:41
qman__I didn't check that the latest version existed for -38602:43
qman__just that there was a -386 in lucid02:43
qman__that could very well be the problem02:44
qman__I really ought to just scrap the thing and get something newer, but it just won't die02:45
qman__hard to argue with that02:45
qman__looks like it's also in updates02:47
qman__so I could probably upgrade from the alternate CD and then update02:47
A-KOI upgraded to Karmic from Jaunty and it seems that my apache ssl site broke--and I can't figure out why....I hadn't made any changes to the files, and I'm pretty sure I had the upgrade not make any changes to conf files......I've had a few things it spit out to me, like Can't find a certificate (even though it's there)...03:08
overriderUfw logs port scans and such to ufw.log, but they also appear in /var/log/messages. I cannot find syslog.conf, so what does Ubuntu use for logging and where can i control what gets logged to where?03:25
overriderOk its rsyslog now. jeez03:28

ideamananyone around that can help me figure out how to get my first UEC running? .. i'm not having any luck after two days of trying05:38
ideamanmy availability scan continues to show 0000/0000 for all instance sizes05:38
ideamanI've tried a 2 physical machine setup, and now today tried a single machine setup (just for dev/testing)05:38
ideamani tried the eucalyptus channel, but it seems dead05:39
webPragmatistwhats the preferred mta for use with php / sendmail05:39
ideamansendmail is an mta...05:40
webPragmatistright… well05:40
webPragmatisti think i was using exim now05:41
ideamanexim or postfix are good05:41
ideamansendmail is more mta than most people need, and one of the harder ones to configure05:41
ideamani haven't setup a sendmail mta for years now.. mostly postfix myself05:42
webPragmatistdoes each mta implement the command sendmail though05:42
webPragmatistfor php to user?05:43
webPragmatisti don't really care which mta i use… sendmail looked complicated like you said and by default didn't seem to allow localhost sending through any domain05:44
ideamani'm fairly sure postfix will work fine with php05:45
ideamanlike 99%05:45
webPragmatistwell okay my next question05:48
webPragmatisti tried to purge sendmail … and it left a bunch of crap05:48
webPragmatisthow do i delete that crap05:48
ideamanpost #405:50
webPragmatistwhy doesn't purge sendmail remove the stupid dependencies05:50
ideamanare you using aptitude or apt-get?05:50
ideamanaptitude will generally offer to remove unrequired dependencies... apt-get you probably need to use apt-get autoremove, if it recognizes the un-needed packages05:52
webPragmatistbleh i got it05:53
webPragmatistideaman: okay so i'm going through this postfix installer… should i put the fqdn if it's just used as outgoing mail?05:54
ideamanmhm.. probably, since otherwise local mail probably won't be handled properly05:55
ideamanyou don't actually need to run an MTA on your server... you could follow what that other post said, and use the PHP Pear::Mail package and set it up to use SMTP instead05:58
ideamansetting up your own MTA may provide unwanted issues such as a) configuration is difficult if you don't setup MTA's on a regular basis b) your IP can be black-listed in SPAMCOP lists, etc05:59
ideamanc) security issues05:59
ideamanfor simplicity using a module that just supports SMTP, and using your ISP's MTA may be the best choice06:00
scarwhy when i run 'apt-get upgrade' is the linux kernel held back? how to install that update?06:25
ideamanapt-get dist-upgrade06:29
scarideaman, i see. thanks06:34
webPragmatistideaman: yea i prefer to run the mta06:42
webPragmatistmainly because our mail server is about as reliable as … eh something06:43
webPragmatistI swear I used exim before i think and got less flack … now i have messages stuck in the queue06:43
webPragmatistJul 24 00:40:37 new357715 postfix/smtp[1306]: connect to mydomain.mxlogic.net:25: Connection refused06:44
webPragmatistis it trying to send outgoing to an smtp? i'm confused06:44
ideamanyes, sounds like its trying to send an email (maybe a failed delivery notice?) to mydomain.mxlogic.net06:45
ideamanmhm, YOUR MTA is trying to contact the MTA on mydomain.mxlogic.net06:45
ideamanif mydomain.mxlogic.net is your server, or the fqdn you used in one of your config files, that could be your own machine its trying to contact06:46
ideamanwithout realizing its one in the same machine06:46
ideamananotherwords it doesn't think its local email06:46

foxinessis it possible that i find a store to sell servers with ready made ubuntu-server edition? "  i have checked hp dell ibm website and more "12:11
tarvidfoxiness, we build our own and could build what you need12:26
tarvidgeneric servers are easy to build, maybe all you need is support12:28
foxinesstarvid, now i'm in the dell website , i try to customize my server12:28
foxinesswith no OS installed " why on earth Dell do not write a line about ubuntu server! "12:29
tarvidI find it more cost-effective to simply buy the parts, assemble and load12:30
tarvidservers come in flavors depending on purpose but the general purpose is to shovel data from the hard disk to an Ethernet port12:31
tarvidin general, one is better off with two servers than one expensive server12:33
tarvidspeculating on the relationship between Dell and Ubuntu is not fruitful12:34
foxinesstarvid, I liked the idea " DIY " , will be a new experience for me12:41
tarvidhttp://www.ls.net/content/reference-windows-server-upgrade was for a Windows client12:45
tarvidSome prices are down, Windows Server is unnecessary, might be more useful to build 2 instead of the eSata backup12:48

dominicdinadaneed a hand with samba all of a sudden after the update 2 days ago my samba server isnt working, a check of the results shows that now it is erroring on a few things such as the user/pass files etc...19:02
RoyKruben23: see the server guide https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/email-services.html19:03
RoyKdominicdinada: pastebin your config and give detailed info about the environment, and perhaps someone can help ;)19:03
dominicdinadaRoyK: how about this i pastebin the errors... and tell you about how the update 2 days ago remapped the drives ???19:04
RoyKdominicdinada: sure, but we need details to help. something like 'can someone help me?' doesn't say much about the problems19:06
dominicdinadai do believe i detailed everything going on..... now to show u how strict my config is........19:07
RoyKdominicdinada: you haven's said what changes you have made, not said what sort of samba config you have, you have merely said it doesn't work...19:08
RoyKdominicdinada: for a start, pastebin smb.conf and tell us what you have changed, and perhaps, maybe, someone can help19:09
dominicdinadaRoyK: instead of wasting the time typing and telling me what i havent done ReRead that i wrote that when updated 2 days ago the update forced me to remapped the hard drives.... etc19:10
dominicdinadaand ill finish getting the config and log pastebinned19:10
dominicdinadaRoyK: http://pastebin.com/k2yKZgV319:12
RoyKthat's the shortest smb.conf I've ever seen :þ19:14
dominicdinadai said i wasnt posting the whole thing...19:14
RoyKwell, I have no idea. anyway, if showing your smb.conf file is a security threat, then something is terribly fucked up with your systems.19:15

RoyKwebPragmatist: postfix will, by default, try to use dns lookups to send mail to other places. if you need it to pass it through a relay host, configure a smart relay host23:33
