dravekxquestion: when manually run update and upgrade with apt-get, there are 3 packages kept back. If I run with aptitude, they are installed. Anyone know which is correct or does it matter?00:56
dravekxthe 3 packages are:  linux-headers-server, linux-image-server, and  linux - server00:56
dravekxahhh.. nvm. found the answer.00:57
airtonixhow odd, when i perform the initial three default schema installation for ldap as per ( https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openldap-server.html ) via Fabric, it errors. But performing the exact same commands mannually succeds00:57
RoyKdravekx: apt-get update && apt dist-upgrade01:12
dravekxRoyK, thx :)01:23
juanito1 hi guys01:30

jblzhey guys- i just fired up a new maverick server, and it doesn't appear to have add-apt-repository... is this normal?01:57
patdk-lapit is on all my lucid servers01:59
jblzright, me too :)02:00
onecrazycati'm setting up two dhcp servers and i want one to be a backup… any good docs on how to do this?02:08
RoyKjust copy the config file out02:09
RoyKor setup a proper backup system02:09
RoyKup to you02:09
onecrazycatyeah but i only want one to be a primary at any given time.02:09
onecrazycatin other words, the backup should be dormant until the primary fails02:09
onecrazycatunless this is the wrong approach.  i'm by no means an expert with this sort of thing.02:09
RoyKjust google dhcp clustering02:10
RoyKit's trivial02:10
RoyKubuntu clustering is trivial and works very well02:11
RoyKthat is, at least the dhcp  part02:11
patdk-lapya, clustering dhcp is alittle bit to wrap your head around at first02:12
patdk-lapbut is pretty simple02:12
onecrazycatactually i think i found what i needed here:  http://www.madboa.com/geek/dhcp-failover/02:13
onecrazycatIn case anyone else is interested.02:13
patdk-lapcan only do two servers though02:13
onecrazycatIt's pretty straightforward.02:13
onecrazycatTwo is all I need.02:13
onecrazycat…for now02:13
RoyKwe're running that at the office02:13
patdk-lapmy only issue is, I dunno why, but when I set it up, all dhcp requests get delayed a good 10sec or so02:13
RoyKworks like a dream02:13
RoyKone fails, the other takes over02:13
patdk-lapand I do lots of netboots, so it annoys me02:14
onecrazycatRoyK:  what happens once your primary comes back up?02:14
patdk-lapit resyncs02:14
RoyKpatdk-lap: then you must have done something funny02:14
RoyKonecrazycat: they sync up02:14
patdk-laproyk, ya, i figured, but can't figure out what :)02:14
onecrazycatRoyK:  Nice.  So no manual intervention req'd then?02:14
onecrazycatRoyK:  You're a gentlemen and a scholar ;)02:14
patdk-lapyou can also setup dhcp ranges that are private per each instance02:15
RoyKthank you, boy :)02:15
patdk-lapand stuff served there don't failover02:15
patdk-laprequired for bootp02:15
patdk-lapI wonder if that is what is screwing me, still have bootp stuff02:15
RoyKit's not everyday I get called a gentleman, I must confess I feel honored02:17
onecrazycatRoyK:  Sap it up.  :)02:18
* RoyK hands onecrazycat a dram02:19
onecrazycatRoyK:  It's not every day I get a solid dram from someone in ubuntu-server IRC.02:19
RoyKthat'll be an islay02:20
jblzdoes maverick server normally run apache2 + sendmail out of the box by default., or is that just my vpses config?02:21
onecrazycatI'm pretty sure your VPS needs to enable that during install.02:21
onecrazycatUbuntu server (any version) doesn't run anything by default, that's the beauty of it.02:22
RoyKjblz: iirc that's apache + exim or postfix02:22
jblzyeah, it's totally weird, it's got apache2 and "sendmail-mta", with one of the apache2 processes running as root02:23
onecrazycatIt could be for their administrative purposes… but this would be a question you could ask them to confirm.02:23
jblzwell, i figured someone on here would know whether that was standard maverick behavior or not02:23
onecrazycatnot standard02:23
jblzthank you onecrazycat.02:24
onecrazycatjblz: np02:25
patdk-lapthey probably just set the lamp install by default02:30

twbAs at lucid, dhcp3-server is still a sysvinit package, so it will be in /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server with SNN symlinks in /etc/rcS.d or rc[2-5].d04:56

twbMy logs show that ntpd regularly unbinds from and binds to <every interface>:123.08:50
twbThis is stupid.  How do I tell ntpd to shut up, bind to when it starts, and just stick to that?08:51
joschitwb: unfortunately you can't.08:51
twbIt's *especially* stupid because I have e.g. four IP addresses on 1.2.3/26, and it claims to bind onto 1.2.3 thrice08:52
twbBloody ISC needs to get a clue08:52
twbI just finished replacing bind9 with ntpd and unbound, maybe I should throw away their ntpd too08:53

ppetrakilaen, are you sure you're not root? because it doesn't work for me here on 10.04 as a non-root user14:21
laenppetraki: that's because your /etc/blkid.tab has no read permission for other.14:22

ppetrakiI've never looked at the blkid source code but I suspect it's examining the partition table as part of the uuid generation14:31
ppetrakion you 8.04 system, is that block device delegated to something like mdadm?14:32
laenNope, direct disk, no software raid or lvm or something.14:32

laenppetraki: "Before  kernel  2.6.24,  and  since  kernel  2.6.24 if file capabilities are not enabled"  ..guess i'm out of luck, it's using CAPABILITIES in 10.04, which isn't used in 8.04 as that is the .24 kernel.14:48
ppetrakilaen, where'd you find that factoid?14:48
laenppetraki: I went from the manpages of  OPEN(2), FCNTL(2), PATH_RESOLUTION(7) to CAPABILITIES(7), where that sentence was written.14:50
laenppetraki: Not that i found those manpages on Ubuntu though ;)14:50
ppetrakilaen, well, they're part of the programmers manual. I have them, but I'm a kernel dev14:51
laenSo, does that sound logical to you then?14:51
ppetrakilaen, still reading, but yeah14:52
a7ndrewSo, I'm wanting to look at a bit of system monitoring and diagnoses. The packages 'atsar' and 'systat' are both available to me. Does anyone have any opinion/ experience regarding either of them?14:53
laenppetraki: thinking about a workaround, how unsafe would it be in this case, to give blkid suid ..the customer application prefers not to use sudo14:56
ppetrakilaen, well, adding suid to anything puts the system at more risk, instead, you may be able to install the lucid kernel on 8.04 (hardy?)14:57
ppetrakilaen, actually populating the disk group might be enough14:58
laenppetraki: oh duh, indeed.14:58
ppetrakilaen, then again, what does a regular user need blkid to begin with?14:59
laenppetraki: none, customer application14:59
laenppetraki: well, open() call still fails .. weird.14:59

laenOw :)15:02
laenppetraki: got any good documentation to read into when i wanna try to understand the way CAP_* are used on distributions?15:18

hallyni don't know how, but I need tocome up with a better way to represent bugs for myself.  Faster fetches, but also showing me what other open bugs people and packages have17:01
hallynall right, so on that note, i need to go check for burning bridges in kvm/libvirt for natty.17:01

cjwatsonsmoser: /boot/grub is created by the action of installing GRUB.  We've tried to avoid putting it directly in packages because some people like to unmount /boot except when upgrading, to minimise risk of filesystem wear.  Your fix is OK for beta-2, but I would prefer it if you created it in postinst or in update-grub-legacy-ec2 or something like that17:16
smosercjwatson, :-(17:17
smosersorry. i would have done that for sure. that was my original thought.17:18
smoserit is *really* not a big deal, though, as if you're installing grub-legacy-ec2, you're really on a virtual machine, and likely in EC2 where /boot is probably on /17:18
pmatulis_darn, unity-2d doesn't work at all on kvm17:22
cjwatsonsmoser: right, hence why it's OK for beta-2.  It would be good to clean it up for final, that's all.17:23
smosercjwatson, ok. i'll do that.  you'd just do 'mkdir /boot/grub' in postinst >17:23
cjwatsonmkdir -p, yes17:24
orudiei'm running ubuntu with /dev/sda5 linux swap . I just resized disk in vmware ESXi, when I load gparted it doesn't let me resize the partition, since right at the end of dev/sda1 is dev/sda5 then unallocated space17:39
hallynppetraki: drat, -q didn't fix it for him17:42
evso right now the installer prevents you from having an upper case letter as the first character of a username17:49
evthis is a bit silly. There's no technical reason this should be the case17:50
evI'd like to change it in a later version of Ubuntu (see: not natty), but I'm looking for examples of things this might break17:50
evcjwatson mentioned you folk may have encountered software that's more likely to have such interoperability issues17:51

DavieyRoAkSoAx, technically, it's failed the test case - so can you mark it so?22:48
DavieyI think it's OK tho.22:48
Davieyjamespage1, boggle!22:48
RoAkSoAxDaviey: the other thing is that there's no network but I'm doing it with TestDrive, so that might be it22:48
RoAkSoAxDaviey: ah never mind there's network after reboot22:49
DavieyRoAkSoAx, yeah, last time i tried server with testdrive i had similar22:49
RoAkSoAxDaviey: so yeah should I file a bug because of the installtion is of 533 and mark it as failed test, or should I just ignore it22:50
RoAkSoAxand mark it as passed test22:50
DavieyRoAkSoAx, mark it failed, and note the bug number.22:51
