pedahzurNot strictly server related, but this is on Ubuntu server, so....: Weird dependency problem: trying to install gitosis. Says it can't install because Depends: git-core (>= 1:1.5.0) but 1:1.7.3-0ppa2~hardy1 is installed.  Ideas?04:43
JasonMSPI was hoping for easy managemnt of users by only allowing them access using httpaswd to create users.  Basically it would keep the ftp users all in one place and not in the passwd file.04:46

sheyQuestion: I have a webcam on my Ubuntu Server in my office, and was wondering if there was a way I can install some sort of monitoring software so I can see my office, from home lets say. There is no X Server installed on it.04:55
sheyIs something like this possible?04:55
ecelisyes it is posible04:56
sheyWell, this is linux, I am sure everything is possible, care to elaborate?04:57
ecelisdepending on your webcam, you might make it to take still images and store them somewhere an then write some PHP or web front end05:00
eceliswhich can use imagemagik to create clips for  you to download05:01
ecelisor maybe an streaming solution such as videolan05:01
ecelisI have done the first one05:01
ecelisgoogle a bit, there are lots of resources about this out there05:01

SpamapSthe foreign numbers are not missing in the previous milestone tho...08:25
ttxSpamapS: we need to fix it because it adds confusion on the meaning of the lines... I can have a shot at it if you want08:25

SpamapSttx: when it was 3 things (todo/done/postponed).. no foreign/team .. no blocked.. in progress.. inverted.. the manual chart build was a nice simple way to go08:36
SpamapSbut now.. it needs some dynamism08:36
ttxSpamapS: yep, it could use a bit of abstraction08:37
ttxor crazy things like an object to represent the data.08:37
SpamapSno, remembering what number has "todo foreign" in it is easy08:38

Davieyjdstrand, OK.. regarding this issue we have been seeing with i386 with libvirt.. /me finds bug number13:44
jdstrandmdeslaur: I wonder if we could have a reminder in umt for apache213:45
jdstrandbug #62805513:45
uvirtbotLaunchpad bug 628055 in libvirt "Instances don't start correctly: Security Labeling error running aa_change_profile()" [High,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/62805513:45
mdeslaurjdstrand: yeah, I was thinking about that13:45
Davieyjdstrand, OK... pulling a euca libvirt.xml and trying to run it externally gives the same issue13:46
jdstrandmdeslaur: there are probably going to be other cases where we need to do funky stuff, so something general where we have '<package>:<commnet>' or something13:46
Daviey(on the same box, running a manual libvirt instances DOES work)13:46
* jdstrand is just thinking otoh13:46
DavieySo i'm guessing it's something in the xml which is causing an explosion13:46
jdstrandDaviey: interesting13:46
jdstrandDaviey: before we go that route. do the instances *ever* start in euca on i386 or they always fail?13:47
Davieyjdstrand, I can do one of two things to help... you can ssh to the box i'm seeing this on... or i can try and tar up the whole shindig including disk image.13:47
Davieyjdstrand, Well i did get a report of running... but went directly to terminate afterwards... I'm certain it's a red herring - but i didn't check the logs.13:48
jdstrandDaviey: ok. that is good-- it consistently fails13:48
DavieyI am reasonably conformable saying it's always failing13:48
jdstrandDaviey: what is this 'libvirt.xml' file?13:49
Davieyjdstrand, pastebin on the way13:49
hggdhI thought I had had a mix of failures & starts, but it ended up I was on the wrong version13:50
Davieyjdstrand, http://pastebin.daviey.com/QycQ/raw/ <-- this is what euca throws at libvirt13:51
Davieylibvirt, naturally adds the defaults.. want to see what libvirt generates?13:51
jdstrandDaviey: so that is the domain xml for an individual machine, correct?13:52
jdstrandDaviey: yes13:52
jdstrandso there is no uuid, which implies this is doing a 'create'13:54
Davieyjdstrand, http://pb.daviey.com/Q8Pm/raw/13:55
Davieythat is what libvirt throws out13:55
mdlueckAnyone having trouble with US 10.04.1 LTS failing to recognize USB HDD's and USB Flash Drives? I verified and it correctly works with a USB Keyboard, so USB is not totally dead.13:57
jdstrandDaviey: right, so euca takes the first, does a create and ends up with the second-- is that accurate?13:57
jdstrandDaviey: if you take the second on its own and define it, it works?13:58
jdstrandDaviey: (eg, if you change the name and uuid)13:58
* jdstrand notices the 'sda' and thought euca was moving to 'vda'... (just an aside)13:59
Davieyjdstrand, no13:59
Davieythe second is what is in /etc/libvirt/qemu/14:00
Davieyi defined it, and tried to start14:00
jdstrandDaviey: that is what I meant14:00
Daviey(expecting it to work)14:00
Davieybut got the security labelling error14:00
mdlueckAnd what package should I even open a bug about USB drives not being recognized? The kernel itself, or... ???14:00
Davieywhich means there is something in the xml it doesn't like14:00
jdstrandDaviey: to get the second, it is doing a 'virsh create', no?14:01
jdstrandDaviey: or is it creating the 2nd on its own somehow?14:01
hggdhmdlueck: open the bug against linux, yes14:01
Davieyjdstrand, yeah, from a define i think14:02
jdstrandDaviey: I don't understand (that was an either/or)14:02
mdlueckhggdh: http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/linux correct???14:02
hggdhmdlueck: 'linux' means the current kernel *whatever version it is).14:03
mdlueckhggdh: K, thanks, I think I got to the correct place. Will log away.14:04

Davieyit's a throwaway machine14:15
jdstrandDaviey: can you get it to the point where it has just thrown the error? I'm sorry, I know next to nothing about euca specifics14:16
Davieyjdstrand, ok.. sorry for the delay14:18
Davieyjdstrand, are you seeing that?14:20
jdstrandDaviey: yes14:20
jdstrandDaviey: how are /etc/libvirt/qemu/*xml being created?14:20
Davieyjdstrand, In that case... i found the one euca throws out, and did a virsh define14:20
jdstrandlet me see what the problem is, then we can figure out what is causing it14:21
Davieyjdstrand, feel free :)14:21
Davieyjdstrand, if the box goes bang, it's no concerns14:21

pmatulisehcah: have you reason to believe that it's possible?14:34

Davieyjdstrand, looks like euca has done a garbage collect14:35
jdstrandDaviey: can we stop that? it is kinda a pain14:36
Davieyjdstrand, it "is stopped"... or at least the setting is made for this to be the case.14:36

hggdhjdstrand: Euca will garbage-collect all terminated instances14:47
Davieyhggdh, I've set the value that should stop it! :(14:47
Davieyjdstrand, I think we might need to cp -R it.14:47
Davieythen if it does collect, we can put it back in place14:47
hggdhDaviey: and, of course, you started it CLEAN=1?14:47

cdubyazorton, I've used nmap on simpler scans internally (-F -T4 options) but I think that only scans the 100 most common ports. Is there a good reference on setting up "best practice" vulnerability scans that are comprehensive enough?16:44

SpamapS\sh: I don't mess with udev stuff. ;)17:39
SpamapSI've struggled mightily to avoid having anything in a server more complicated that 2 bonded ethernet ports. Network complexity belongs on routers/switches/firewalls only.. and I don't use Linux for any of those. ;)17:40
zortoni'm with you on that one, the only thing i'm using it for is to give pretty names to the ethernet interfaces, admin, management, recorder and such17:42
SpamapSzorton: interesting17:47
zortonmakes life a little easier that's for sure17:48
SpamapSzorton: does it work for say,  tcpdump -i admin instead of tcpdump -i eth0 ?17:49
zortonyeah, it's accutaly the same mechanism that keeps eth0 bonded to the right mac address17:49
zortoncode that accesses the device dosen't care, eth0 is the same as admin17:50
zortonjust make sure you update /etc/network/interfaces with the right name first :)17:51
RoyKzorton: I just came in, but if you have replaced a nic, just reset the udev stuff to get eth0 back17:54
zortonRoyK: wan't the issue :)18:06
zortonthanks though, i'm currently fighting grub issues18:07
ehcahWhat would I search to find a tutorial on assigning specific clients, static IP's vs. DHCP. My LAN will have a combination of both. All my search's come back with makign eth0 or eth1 on my server static.  :(18:11
zortontake a peak at the manpage for interfaces18:12
RoyKehcah: you can use dhcp to assign static IPs18:12
RoyKimho a good solution18:13
RoyKehcah: example http://pastebin.com/DYYJ7B8c18:14
ehcahThat is what I would like to do, but can't find the option. I know on my previous box, there were files under bind dns that contained host hames and host ip's etc...18:14
RoyKehcah: you bind the mac address to a specific IP in the dhcp server18:15
RoyKoutside of the dynamic scope18:15

RoyKehcah: that's just DNS - that won't give you a fixed IP if the PC is offline for some time18:20
RoyKif using rfc1918 addresses, just allocate a /24 part for static IPs18:20

cemcwhat's the easiest/best way to turn a server install into a desktop install (and back) ?19:14
nich0scemc: What?19:16
cemcsay I've installed 10.04 server edition, but I want to turn it into desktop (install packages for X, gnome, etc)19:17
cemcis it enough to just install ubuntu-desktop package?19:17
nich0sI believe that package should cover just about everything.19:18
nich0sYou'll want to go through updaterc.rc and clear out any daemons set to load on start.19:18
cemcand can I go back to server after that? or going back is not se easy?19:19
bobslaedeHi, Im having a small problem with autofs and sshfs, as it seems that autofs doesnt recognize the pub_keys for the user, where sshfs does19:20
bobslaedeand Im not fond of the idea of creating pub keys for the root user19:20
nich0scemc: Ultimately you can remove any packages you want to.19:21
nich0scemc: Server edition is simply a base version of Ubuntu set up to function more like a server than a personal computer.19:22
cemcnich0s: I know, I was looking for an easy way ;) I guess there isn't, I can't just remove ubuntu-desktop :)19:22
cemcor I can do a list of all installed packages when I installed ubuntu-desktop, and apt-get purge them19:23
ScottKcemc: In theory, sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop && apt-get autoremove would do it.19:23
ScottKYou can, although remember that even purge doesn't always put your system back exactly like it was before.19:23
cemcScottK: you think all those packages will be marked 'not needed' because I removed ubuntu-desktop? ;)19:23
ScottKSince they are pulled in by ubuntu-desktop and not installed directly, that should be the case.19:24
ScottKNo promised though.19:24
ScottK(I'd still keep the list)19:24
nich0spipe it in to a install log.19:24
RoyKcemc: if you want server and desktop on the same box, just install desktop and disable X when you don't need it anymore19:25
RoyKcemc: ubuntu desktop and server is really the same thing19:25
cemcI know, I was merely wondering about the theory in doing server->desktop and back19:26
cemcthanks for the tips19:26
RoyKcemc: just install desktop - the only problem will be that it's not supported for 5 years, but only a mere 3 years19:26
u92what is a .listing file is it like a thumbs.db?19:27
cemcRoyK: I guess that's ultimately is decided for every package individually, right?19:27
RoyKcemc: not sure, but then, I don't use desktop distros for my servers19:28
nich0sbobslaede: Something like http://www.tjansson.dk/?p=84 should help you out.19:29
cemcif you install ubuntu desktop it doesn't mean you won't get ANY updates after 3 years, you should get updates for 'server packages' if you have any installed, maybe you won't get update for say firefox19:30
cemcbut you should get updates for postfix, squid and the like, hm?19:30
nich0scemc: That's going to depend on which repos you're pinging with apt-get.19:30
nich0scemc: you should be able to uncomment the lines for universe, etc.19:31
ScottKnich0s: No.  All the server and desktop packages are in the same repository19:31
RoyKcemc: use a server distro for a server19:31
nich0scemc: /etc/apt/sources.list, I believe.19:31
lamontnich0s: there's no diff between the server and desktop repos19:31
* RoyK doesn't get why anyone would want X on a server19:32
lamontsome people like guis on their servers.  I've never really understood that so much either19:32

ubottunich0s WinstonSmith  (just as a reminder): 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.20:42
WinstonSmithguntbert, thank you. but in my (very) limited knowledge the implementation of upstart is far from complete?20:46
guntbertWinstonSmith: that seems to be true, but that doesn't alter the fact that !all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal"20:46
WinstonSmithguntbert, cause it seems not all services can be controlled properly by the "service" command20:46
guntbertWinstonSmith: yes, some services are still handled by sysv init - but no differences between runlevels20:47
