OzikUbuntu 10.04.01 LTS installed on RAID 0 via PCI card: works ok till shutdown -h. With GRUB legacy I have error 17, with GRUB 2 it keep restarting. recovery helps till shutdown08:38
stlsaintOzik: you use shutdown -h <time>08:45
stlsaintlike: shutdown -h08:45
stlsaintlike: shutdown -h 108:45
Oziksudo shutdown -h +1, sudo shutdown -h now08:46
Oziksudo shutdown now, or reboot doesn't make troubles08:47
stlsaintOzik: seems google shows a couple fixes for that, possible error with raid also though08:47
stlsainti must leave for a bit08:48
Ozikok, btw when tried install freeBSD computer did not seen OS (BIOS see's the matrix)08:49

Ozikinstalled on 160GB raid 0, bios see's the natrix11:42
Ozik* matrix11:43
coalwaterOzik,  u get grub error?11:52
Ozikwith GRUB Legacy is 17, tried GRUB 2, no errors, when GRUB should work it's resetting11:53
Ozikbut only after shutdown -h11:53

Ozikno, GRUB 2 after format11:54
coalwaterit had trouble shooting page/section i think11:54
ubot2GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)11:54
coalwaterOzik, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#line-572 check this part11:58
Ozikcoalwater, I have no idea about that, btw with GRUB 2 there is no errors or console, just like hard reset :)12:03
coalwateru get a grub menu ? or does it reset before seeing the menu ?12:05
Ozikwith GRUB 1 there is error 15, no menu12:06
Ozikwhat;s curious freeBSD could not boot either12:06
Ozikand Ubuntu is alone, no Windows or gates12:09
coalwaterOzik, i think u could try reinstalling grub or something12:12
coalwateri don't know if its safe to have both grubs on 1 system12:12
Ozikreinstalling grub, reinstalling even Ubuntu12:13
Ozikno, there is one GRUB12:13
Oziktried GRUB, when failed, I reformatted disks and installed Ubuntu again with GRUB 212:13
coalwaterthat's strange12:19
OzikI'm installing all once again thus time with legacy grub12:21
Ozikfound smth but dunno if it work12:21
coalwaterhm u said you had raid right?12:22
ubot2Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto12:23
coalwaterthere , try that12:23
Ozikhmmm that's software raid, I have hardware raid on PCI12:24
OzikI have PCI silicon Raid controller, created Raid 0, ubuntu should see it as one disk right?13:05
Ozikcoalwater: got solution13:10
coalwaterhm, what did u do13:10
Ozikf..... dunno what happened, raid controller screwed snth13:10
coalwateranybody uses vnstat?13:10
Abhijitcoalwater, yeah13:11
Ozikmaked raid 0 again and ubuntu sees it as 1 disk13:11
coalwaterAbhijit, mine doesn't update any thing, what am i missing13:11
Abhijitcoalwater, are you running for first time?13:11
coalwaterAbhijit,  yea, i added eth0, but im not sure what else i need to do13:11
coalwaterOzik, it's working now ?13:12
Abhijitcoalwater, you need to create database13:12
coalwaterAbhijit, i think i did that13:12
coalwaterit gives stats ,but doesn't update13:12
Abhijitcoalwater, how many hours passed since you have setup vnstat?13:12
coalwatersince yesterday13:12
Abhijitcoalwater, it is updating. that data seems ok? whats wrong?13:13
Ozikcoalwater: dunno, but it's different now, so should, now sees ONE disk as RAID13:13
coalwaterit only updated after i did a terminal command13:13
coalwaterand btw, i downloaded like 2 torrents, ~1.5GB each13:13
coalwaterit only says 44mb13:13
coalwatersome forum said i should add a cron job for update13:14
coalwaterbut i dont know what's the command13:14
Abhijitcoalwater, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=122145513:14
coalwateris it -u13:14

Abhijitcoalwater, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=139371213:14
Abhijitcoalwater, no idea13:15
coalwaterAbhijit, u didnt add any cron jobs?13:18
Abhijitcoalwater, nope13:18
Abhijitcoalwater, mine is working properly13:19
Abhijitcoalwater, are you sure if eth0 is added to vnstat then you have downloaded all that data from eth0 only? and not by wlan0?13:20
coalwaterdo i need to reboot after installing?13:20
coalwatermy pc doesnt use wireless13:20
Abhijitcoalwater, i do not think reboot is requried. but you can give it a try13:20
Abhijitcoalwater, do vnstat -w -i eth013:20
Abhijitor -m whatever13:21
coalwaterAbhijit, http://paste.ubuntu.com/638890/13:22
Abhijitcoalwater, no idea about that!13:23
Abhijitcoalwater, have you looked at the link i gave you above13:23
coalwaterAbhijit, i see a vnstat -u updates the numbers13:25
Abhijitcoalwater, i see. then set it as cron!!! :-p13:25
coalwaterAbhijit, http://paste.ubuntu.com/638890/ see line 74 and going up13:28
Abhijitcoalwater, i do not understand the config gile!13:29

holsteinhttp://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/mounting-error-%5Bsolved%5D-778191/ suggests mounting as ext415:33
holsteinOzik: not sure about the rest of it though... whats going on? is this just a secondary drive you have added?15:34
Ozikcan't check now but it should be ext415:35
Ozikthats raid 0 :D15:35
holsteini think you'll just need to tackle these one at a time, and drill down... what prompted this issue?15:36
Ozikentering rescue mode, selecting roo partition15:37
holsteinOzik: thats what prompts the error?15:38
Ozikyes, tell's me that check logs and here it is15:38
Ozikgrub 2 can't be installed on raid 0 by default15:39
Ozikso i need to do it manual15:39
Ozikcan't cd /dev/mapper/*ff115:40
holsteindo any of these methods work?15:41
holsteinhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling GRUB215:41
holsteinim unclear how you can get to rescue mode if grub is not installed15:42
Ozikfrom cd15:43
holsteinOzik: if entering rescue mode is kicking up these errors, i would not go that route15:43
holsteini would try installing grub using a different method15:43
OzikI can't do any of it because until i mount disk i have built-in shell15:44
Ozikso no sudo and other15:44
Ozikthere is nano, but I can't get to grub2 files15:44
Ozikholstein: check it out: http://neildecapia.wordpress.com/2010/05/15/ubuntu-lucid-10-04-on-a-raid-0%C2%A0array/15:45
holsteinyeah, but that isnt working15:46
holsteinand when you give that error message, it implies to me *nothing* about what the actual problem is15:46
holsteinOzik: maybe in the -server channel?15:47
holsteinim sure you have read https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/advanced-installation.html15:47
Ozikscrewed, http://paste.ubuntu.com/638935/15:49
Ozikadv-install won't help, it IS a hardware raid15:53
Ozikholstein: only partition 7 is not marked as ext415:58
holsteinOzik: im not aware of your partitioning scheme, but i would try and stick to the issue at hand, getting a boot loader16:01
holsteinmaybe something other than grub?16:01
* holstein is running out the door... good luck...16:01
OzikI'm new in penguins worls, what loader?16:02
holsteinive used http://gag.sourceforge.net/ before16:02
holsteinhttp://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html is something you can try live16:03

bobweaverhi there is there any one here that knows about writing scripts ?19:01
bobweaverI am working on testing some tools with a distro and have found work around now I would like (i think) to write scripts to fix it by running that script is this the right way to think about this?19:03
bobweaverall of it is in bash19:04
geirhaI know scripting, but I'm not sure I understand what you want to do.19:22
bobweaverHi there geirha I want to make a script to remove some files then replace them19:27
geirhaIf you want to replace them, you don't need to remove them first, but go on.19:30
kristian-aalborgfor serious... how do I make an archive of a dir, encrypt the archive and the file list19:30
kristian-aalborgmust be in a common format (zip/ rar)19:31
geirhatar zcf foo.tar.gz the_dir/19:31
bioterrorv is okay to add too19:31
geirhatar is much more common on linux19:31
geirhathan zip and rar I mean.19:31
bioterrortar and gnuzip are default stuff19:32
bioterrorgunzip I mean :D19:32
bobweaverso this would be my 1st script and I want to remove metasploite then just replace it the dev for blackbuntu only put on the small package19:32
kristian-aalborggeirha, common for Win users, sorry19:32
bobweaverthat is just a outline19:33
geirhazip -r foo.zip the_dir/19:33
geirhaAnd what encryption is common for Win users?19:33
bobweaverwhat I want to know19:34
geirhabobweaver: Never use cd in a script without testing its exit status.19:36
geirhacd /pentest/explotis || exit19:36
geirhaThere, if cd should fail, the script will now exit instead of running rm in the wrong dir.19:37
bobweavergeirha, thanks like I said this is my firt one19:37
bobweavergeirha, thanks like I said this is my first one *19:37
geirhaIf you're interested in learning bash scripting, there's a very good beginners guide.19:39
bobweaverit just seems like fun19:40

geirhaAll other guides I've encountered are bad I'm afraid, they generally doesn't teach good practice and in many cases they're even plain wrong on certain subjects.19:41
bobweaverI know the lang I need to lean how to put pages together I know other langs also like html and web stuff so that is where my head is19:42
bobweaverdont know if that is the right place or not ?19:42
bobweaveris a good example blacklist.conf19:43
geirhaThat's a config file.19:44
kristian-aalborggeirha, sorry, I meant "put a password on" of course19:48
* kristian-aalborg can't think today19:48
geirhaLet me just read the manual for you... ah, -e19:48
geirhazip -e -r archivename.zip dir_to_archive/19:49
bioterrorzip -9 -r fooo.zip whattozip19:50
bobweavergeirha, I know how to read also I was looking to see if that is how a page is put together there is a header and a body but no end ?19:50
bobweaver# comments things out I know all of this I just dont know how to put them together19:51
geirhabobweaver: Page, are you talking about an html page?19:51
bobweaver  #!/usr/bin/env bash    that is the header right19:53
bobweaverthen the syntax is the body ??19:53
bobweavertrying to put it together like a burger is that a good way to think about it19:54
geirhaYeah, that line, as the absolute first part of the script, tells linux that the file should be read and executed by bash.19:55
bobweavergeirha, the link is great thanks19:56
