KB1JWQI'm playing around with debootstrap and looking at the various files for different distros. Where can I find a decent description of the various lucid variants (in this case buildd fakechroot minbase)?03:03

tohuwI want my DNS server to tell clients on its local network that its FQDN (say, dns.example.com) resolves to the local IP instead of the public one. Obviously, I want it to keep informing non-local clients that its FQDN resolves to its public IP. How do I accomplish this?05:54

tohuwSo here's an odd problem: I'm trying to ssh into my local DNS server. If I ping it by FQDN (e.g. myserver.site), I get the correct IP address, and the ping times are fine, but there's a very long gap between pings. If I ssh to the FQDN, I get ssh'd into the localhost of whatever machine I'm on! nslookup of the FQDN seems fine... ideas?09:39
airtonixtohuw: did you check the obvious things like : /etc/hosts ~/.ssh/config10:14
airtonixtohuw: also the zones config for your local dns if you have one10:15

hallynkim0: uh, we have that patch13:10
hallynnow, maybe my new packaging ended up not applying it...13:10
* hallyn checks build log13:12

CherishAnybody here?13:28
kim0Cherish: surely :)13:29
CherishI enable SSL on Apache, and generate the key by -des3. So when I reboot my system, it required password.13:31
CherishBut after I enter the password , it dead.13:31
CherishI can't see the login message, it is starting apache all the time.13:31
CherishAnd the error is "Init: Private key not found" , but my PATH is right.13:33
CherishWhen I generate the key doesn't support password , everything is OK.13:33
CherishThis is why?13:33
hallynkim0: it was not being aplied13:35
hallynkim0: update in about 2 hours, should be there13:35
kim0Cherish: I suppose because starting apache from the init system is conflicting with your requirement of inputing the encryption password "interactively" ! My initial guess is that it won't be easy13:40
kim0hallyn: why are ppas so lazy :) can we have it build in like 10 mins .. spawn a cloud builder or something :D13:41
Cherishkim0: Yeah, that's what I mean.13:43
CherishDo you know the reason?13:43
hallynCherish: fraid i don't.  I'd suggest opening a bug about it.13:45
hallynCherish: is there anything in syslog showing what apaache was up to?13:45
CherishThe error log is "Init: Private key not found"13:46
CherishI'm sure the Path is right, because when I use the key generated by no -des3, everything is OK.13:47
cavefishHey, I've got a question. I'm running a Ubuntu 10.10 server and want to change the welcome message. I've already changed the /etc/motd file, unfortunately that did't work. After a reset of the server the file resets with the default information. Can anyone explain how to fix this?13:53
hallyncavefish: look under /etc/update-motd.d13:57
hallyncavefish: mounted-varrun.conf appears to regenerated it on boot13:57

ttist25Hey there - I'm trying to recover a 3 drive RAID5 array.  It's on desktop but I can't seem to get help in #ubuntu - can anyone help here?14:01
kim0ttist25: soft raid ?14:02
ttist25ps - it's a dry run - there's no critical data.  just trying to figure it out before i need to14:02
kim0so what's the problem14:02
ttist25I've got 3 500GB SATA drives setup in RAID5.  The OS is installed on the array14:03
ttist25everything works well and I can boot etc14:03
cerberoshi, is there any way to make a screen session page up the same way a non screen session does?14:03
ttist25but i'm trying to test by removing power to one of the drives (sdb) and booting14:04
ttist25but I get dumped to an initramfs prompt because it can't start the array (i've got bootdegraded=trueP14:05
ttist25I think i'm missing something fundamentally14:05
kim0ttist25: is your /boot on a separate disk ?!14:06
ttist25the os is in the array14:06
kim0duh, I didn't know one can boot from raid514:06
ttist25is that my fundamental error? :)14:06
kim0ttist25: do all disks have partitions with id "fd" for raid14:07
kim0ttist25: is there some tutorial you followed setting up /boot on raid5 (I'd wanna know about it)14:07
ttist25on each disk i have a 26gb swap partition and the remainder /14:07
ttist25the / partitions are set with boot flag on14:08
kim0type fd ?14:08
ttist25hold on i'll shoot you the link14:08
kim0fdisk -l14:08
kim0would be good14:08
ttist25here's the link https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/advanced-installation.html14:09
ttist25that's for raid 114:09
ttist25but i followed it exactly other than i used 3 disks and selected raid 514:09
ttist25it boots fine with all the disks there but i'm trying to figure out how i would recover it14:10
ttist25ps - if you can't tell i'm skating on the edge of noobidity14:10
hallynCherish: and the .pem file is readable by user www-data or whoever apache runs as?14:10
Cherishhallyn: have any matters?14:14

* hallyn out14:18
ttist25is it even possible to boot raid5 with a degraded disk when the os is installed in the array?  Most of the raid5 setups i've seen when googling are 3 disks for the array and then a separate disk for the os (sometimes mirrored in raid1)14:25

awantii have some in depth question can ask ...18:19
awantiI have 1 LDAP server and 20 clients and os is Ubuntu 10.04. Here every one having romaing profile. Now what i want is I want to restrict 3 pcs being login by other users and that 3 pc users can't login to other 17 pc...18:23
awantiSo plz. help me to solve this18:23
Ryan_Laneawanti: which ldap server are you using?18:23
awantisorry.... which ldap means?18:25
Ryan_Laneserver, which server18:25
Ryan_Laneactive directory?18:25
awantiYES active directory18:26
Ryan_Laneare the desktops kerberized?18:26
awantiyes... all 20 client pc's are Ubuntu Desktop Edition only18:27
Ryan_Lanewell, I'll skip that question, and tell you the pam_security way of doing it18:27
awantiand we have to integrate to Active Directory18:27
awantiyes plz.18:27
Ryan_Laneawanti: look at /etc/security/access.conf18:28
Ryan_Lanelook at the man page for access.conf (man access.conf)18:29
Ryan_Lanelook at the man page for pam_access (man pam_access)18:29
Ryan_Laneso, you'll need to enable pam_access in your pam configuration18:29
Ryan_Lanethen, in access.conf, you'll need to restrict access to root, and whoever you want to restrict access to18:30
awantiok ok i got it18:30
Ryan_Laneof course, if you are using kerberos, there are likely better ways to do this, like doing so on the AD side, but it's more difficult18:30
Ryan_Laneto initially configure anyway18:30
Ryan_Lanethe kerberos route is likely best if you can do it though18:31
Ryan_Lanepam_access will solve your problem though18:31
awantiAnd i have another question...18:31
awantiI want to restrict users to changes in their pc (like wallpaper changes , moving icons, deleting short cuts from desktop etc)18:33
Ryan_Lanein gnome?18:34
Ryan_Laneor also kde?18:34
Ryan_Lanesorry. was in another window18:40
Ryan_LaneI think there is a way to do so18:40
Ryan_Laneit's been a while since I've looked at this18:40
ScottKawanti: That's not really on topic for Ubuntu Server.18:40
Ryan_Lanethat's true18:41
Ryan_Laneshould likely ask that in #ubuntu18:41
Ryan_Laneawanti: take a look at Sabayon, maybe, though18:41
awantisabayon is OS right18:42
Ryan_Laneawanti: no, a tool to restrict settings in gnome18:43
