terry^^ will ignore everything from that particular IP.  You can do that for a range as wel.00:00

[THC]AcidRainsuperoneclick doesnt support droid x200:00
dr_willis[THC]AcidRain:  check it again. i used it on older versions.00:00
dr_willisthey may have an older version archived00:00
[THC]AcidRainwell im actually running a flavor of droid x on a droid x2 device,00:00
dr_willis[THC]AcidRain:  time to ask in #android i imagine.00:01
terrysneakyimp: You dhould go to the security expert you trust for instruction.00:01
[THC]AcidRainoh snap. z4root is working...00:01
sneakyimpterry: thx for rule.  as for said expert, he's very busy (and in wildly different time zone).  i'm under a painful deadline.00:01
[THC]AcidRainor at least it appears.00:01
dr_willisz4root never worked for me [THC]AcidRain00:02
sneakyimpterry:  latin proverb: if there is no wind, row00:02
terrysneakyimp: If it were me, I'd let sshd's config handle what IPs it listens for.00:03
[THC]AcidRain,00:03
dr_willisdoes sshd support hosts.allow and hosts.deny? or is that so old.. its totally outdated :)00:04
Toyamehello00:04
sneakyimpterry: might it happen that one could exploit sshd in that case?   also, is it not more efficient for your machine to have iptables drop the packet before handing it to higher levels of software?00:04
Toyamehellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo00:05
=== ckeen_ is now known as goodpie
Loshkisneakyimp: I agree with terry. Using sshd on a non-standard port, and allowing ssh logins via key only is a better way to go...00:06
zykotick9dr_willis, ssh would need to be called from xinetd to work - it's probably a stand alone server - so short answer is NO00:07
dr_williszykotick9:  just rembering the old-skool days :)00:09
TheCyph3rI've got a question about coming up with a terminal command00:09
dr_williszykotick9:  back when you often had to recompile the kernel to get a cd burner working..00:09
zykotick9dr_willis, ahh, brings me back to a simpler... err more difficult, time ;)00:10
TheCyph3rIf I have a folder with, say, 100 files (specifically pictures), and they all have typical names cameras give (xxx-###, etc)...how can I rename all of them sequentially00:10
zykotick9dr_willis, i always hated xinitd BTW, but that hosts allow would be pretty handy.00:11
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  theck out the renameutils command line tools perhaps. :) is one way00:11
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  ive cheated and used wine to run 'bulk rename utilty' also on linux (and i use it all the time on windows)00:11
TheCyph3rdr_willis: is that a download?00:11
sneakyimpDoes anyone here have a good plan for excluding the vast majority of remote IPs for SSH access while permitting some reasonable subnet -- WITHOUT locking oneself out of the machine.  For example, what happens when your ISP gets bought by Comcast?  Or your ISP switches to IP v6?00:12

uni4dfxHas anyone been able to connect their Windows Mobile 6.5 device to Ubuntu?00:12
dr_willisi use 'qmv' in the renameutils package all the time00:12
TheCyph3rdr_willis: okay so I have the package, I imagine that it's a command line program that I use through the terminal?00:14
dr_willisTheCyph3r: for example qmv. puts all the filenames in a list in a text editor you set.. edit them how you want, save,exit.. it renames them all.. i do a thing similer to.....00:15
dr_willisqmv -f do -e geany00:15
dr_willisqmv -f do -e geany *00:15
=== jay is now known as Guest30664
dr_willis-f do = just show the name to rename to... not both befor/after, -e = use the editor...00:16
dr_willisthen you can do whatever edits you want.. but in your simple case. you may want to track down a more focused tool00:16
TheCyph3rRight, well my thinking was this00:16
jokiAnyone here have experience with conky?00:17
TheCyph3rThere may be 200-300 pictures with names preassigned by camera...the pictures are of book pages, and i'd like to rename them by page #00:17
dr_willisim so used to useng 'bulk rename utilty' on windows.. i always install it via wine.. it can add 001 to 999 to the front of a bunch of files in just a few clicks00:17
dr_willisjoki:  lots of conky docs and examples out there.. and the conky homepage...00:17
dr_willisjoki: state the issue and see who can help.00:17
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  so is the page# part of the existing filename?00:18
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  or are they in order?00:18
Loshkisneakyimp: that's why I think ssh/non-standard port/keyed entry only is the way to go. You can set up and run/test the server using your existing ssh connection, and then enable it when you're sure it works. And it00:18
wookienzubuntu legends. after ,my latest kernel updated pushed out by ubuntu my machine no longer boots to desktop. I get "operaitng in low graphics mode" with no way to fix it.00:18
TheCyph3rdr_willis: They ARE in order, but the existing filename is some randomly assigned name on each...ex: SHF-104, SHF-105, SHF-106, etc.00:19
Loshkisneakyimp: isn't sensitive to the particular ip addresses in use by client or server...00:19
dr_willisso you want to change all 'SHF' to "Our_Florida_Pics_" or similer?00:19
TheCyph3rjust like "Pg 201" "Pg 202" "Pg 203" etc. ad nauseum00:20
dr_willisSO you want to change 'SHF-' to be 'Pg '00:20
dr_willisbut keep the #'s the same.00:20
TheCyph3ryes, and the numbers in the filename need to be changed as well00:20
dr_willisheh.. changed how. :)  that frst part would be easy to do via qmv,00:21
TheCyph3rNope, the numbers too....It takes FAR too long doing it by hand00:21
dr_willisyou want it to start at 001 and end at whatever? or what exactly00:21
TheCyph3rlet me see00:21
dr_willisGeany has 'vertical block' cut/paste features that would make that rather easy also. :) if i can rember how to make bash print 001 to 999....00:22
TBotNikAll, Been fighting a networking problem for weeks.  Opened thread on Ubuntu Forums at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11072877#post11072877 and have 3 other machines I just have to get on my network and inet, because they all are supposed to be sharing a database.  I sure can use some help.00:22
sam555hello all!00:23
sam555what software program does anyone recommend for checking the hard drive on my Ubuntu computer?00:23
TBotNikAll, Looks like the HOWTO that atomicben put out there would work, if I had the "Auto eth0" they are talking about, which I had before the upgrade from 9.10 to 10.0400:23
TheCyph3rdr_willis: Oh wow, brain fart....I'm using my laptop now, but was inserting the SD card into my PC and wondering why the hell the card wouldnt mount!00:23
sam555Does anyone know whether this is any good http://www.howtoforge.com/checking-hard-disk-sanity-with-smartmontools-debian-ubuntu00:23
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  :) or ssh'd to some fileserver.. and wondering why its not got the stuff instgalled.. heh...00:24
TheCyph3rdr_willis: im a newbie... "ssh"?00:24
almoxarifeTBotNik: you have a machine of four on a net, you want it to serve up dhcp to the rest, yes?00:24
dr_willis!ssh | TheCyph3r00:24
ubottuTheCyph3r: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)00:24
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  somthing you will want learn about. if you have more then 1 ubuntu box.00:25
TBotNikalmoxarife: Yup!00:25
sneakyimploshki:  the machine is already alive on the internet.  the issue now is locking it down.  it's a compute instance at amazon EC2 so I can't ever go plug-in a keyboard to fix the problem.  non-standard port is possible but a port scan would yield the open port quite easily.00:25
almoxarifeTBotNik: the simple setup would be dnsmasq00:25
dr_willis!info dnsmasq00:25
ubottudnsmasq (source: dnsmasq): A small caching DNS proxy and DHCP/TFTP server. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.57-1 (natty), package size 13 kB, installed size 120 kB00:25
TheCyph3rdr_willis: I see....Well im quite aware that i know a percentage of a percentage about Ubuntu, or even linux for that matter >.<00:26
TBotNikalmoxarife: But why do I not have the "Auto eth0"?00:26
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  i can 'ssh' from my android phone to my Ubuntu box.. and irc/update/upgrade/transfer files...  make it play 'Mooooo.wav' to annoy the wife....00:26
almoxarifeTBotNik: auto eth0? because you didn't set it to auto?00:26
jokiI need help setting up conky with a lua script anyone willing to help?00:26
TheCyph3rdr_willis: Ohh, so it's like remote access?00:27
TBotNikalmoxarife: Do I need to send my dhcp config to pb, for you to look at?00:27
FoxxWould any of you know why my wireless would say "device not managed"? I already changed etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf  file to Managed=True00:27
dr_willisTheCyph3r:  thats one blade of the SSH swiss army-kife-tool.. :)00:27
almoxarifeTBotNik: no, don't want to look at it, you want to serve up dhcp, ok, I suggest 'dnsmasq'00:27
cheakoHello, I'm trying to build an app with g++ that includes <string> and ends up with this error: " error: '::fwide' has not been declared" and a tone of others.00:28
TBotNikalmoxarife: Not sure, was working on dhcpd, but my machine has dhcp3-server instead and think maybe something got screwed in the config file00:28
TBotNikalmoxarife: K looking at that right now.00:28
cheakoWhat includes must preq these?00:28
dr_willisbbl00:28
TheCyph3rdr_willis: I see....okay, so the 129 files are names as such: IMGP0176.jpg, all the way to IMGP0303.jpg00:28
almoxarifeTBotNik: maybe, first you need to decide what to use, then you can figure out the bugs00:28
TheCyph3rdr_willis: And the first filename I want to change to "Pg 279" and ascend to "Pg 406"00:29
TBotNikalmoxarife: While I'm in "Synaptic" should I uninstall the DHCPD or DHCP3?00:30
almoxarifeTBotNik: I am guessing there is a reason why the router can't serve dhcp00:30
skutr34Hey, I did a clean install of ubuntu 11.04 and tried to boot and it got stuck on a purple screen.....00:31
TBotNikalmoxarife: dnsmasq-base was already installed but not dnsmasq00:31
TBotNikinstalling now00:31
skutr3464 bit dual boot with Windows 700:31
almoxarifeTBotNik: yeap, you need it00:31
TBotNikalmoxarife: Got my laptop connected to hub, so will know when it is live.00:32
almoxarifeTBotNik: the config file is pretty straight forward, dnsmasq will offer up dhcp, you decide what the net ip range is, the other machines need to look at the machine with dnsmasq for dhcp00:33
skutr34Hey, I did a clean install of ubuntu 11.04 and tried to boot and it got stuck on a purple screen. Can anyone help with this please?00:33
Loshkisneakyimp: In practice, port scanning tcp sockets is quite time consuming as the space is so big. I've found that running ssh on a non-standard port has pretty much stopped all ssh probe attempts. And allowing keyed-access-only pretty much prevents any password guessing. You'll probably want it even if you use the other stuff. See Tips for Securing Your EC2 Instance  http://aws.amazon.com/articles/1233, in particular the "Ditch Those Passwords: Use ss00:34

q0_0pL1nuxRules, or linux headers00:57

YankDownUnderHermiene, Right oh...just checking mate.00:59
q0_0pL1nuxRules, what about this apt-get install linux-image-2.6.38-10-generic00:59
hernythey should combine Software Center and Synaptic into one thingamabob00:59
L1nuxRulesq0_0p yes thats the kernel00:59
q0_0pL1nuxRules, do I need to install headers?01:00

zykotick9This isn't a support question so technically it's OT but, I gotta share it.  KVM virtualization can easily boot separate physical partitions - so you can be in Ubuntu, and open a VM of your physical windows on another partition (or another GNU/Linux install).  Really cool in my opinion!  I discovered it as a warning on Ubuntu's KVM page.01:01

ZaehlasI have a question, running ubuntu 10.04, server, LTS, fresh install.  WHY would my udev do THIS: http://paste.ubuntu.com/649600/01:32
YankDownUnderdaniel__, Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and comment out the bcm43xx driver, reboot.01:32
pappa_bearPolah, first number = User ID01:32
daniel__YankDownUnder, how do i do that01:33
Polahpappa_bear: Not for my method. ps as shows UID and then PID. ps -a like I said shows PID  and then TTY. No UID01:33
YankDownUnderdaniel__, Um, sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf => comment in front of bcm43xx, save the file, restart the machine01:34
L1nuxRulesZaehlas maybe something to do with the build system01:35
Zaehlaswell, this is crazy, was same build I used before, needed new hard drives, so fresh installed, but it looks luike every time it's booting, it swaps my two network interfaces..  which causes some serious problems, as you can guess.01:36
L1nuxRulesZaehlas they have probablly changed something with the PXE deployment01:36
Zaehlasmeh.  any idea on how to UNDO whatever they changed.  this is crazy.  who has udev specifically rename network interfaces on a whim?01:37
daniel__YankDownUnder, sry im a realy big noob here what do u mean comment in front of bcm43xx01:37
L1nuxRulesZaehlas not familiar with udev or whim01:38
ZaehlasYankDownUnder Comment is like the number sign, usually, hold down shift, hit 3, that symbol means "comment the whole line"01:38
YankDownUnderdaniel__, Put a "#" in front of it like all the other comments in the file.01:38
Zaehlas*sigh*  Maybe I'll reboot another dozen tinmes, and try to figure out what's it doing.01:39

dliTheCyph3r, sure, use ssh should be handy, unless the network blocks it02:01

zachlrWhen I first installed Ubuntu, I remember being asked "Don't ask for a password, Ask for a password at logon, or Ask for a password to decrypt my home directory"  Is it too late to enable home directory encryption after Ubuntu is installed and I've been using it?  Where can I find more information about this?02:31

gogetaidlemind324: as a install mediea or as a os05:03
idlemind324genewitch: does it work on ubuntu server05:03
DBordelloIf I wanted to install TO a usb drive just like it was a regular HD, can I put the installation media on USB drive A and then just launch the installation and select USB drive B as the target?05:04

DBordelloidlemind324, that sounds familiar05:04
genewitchDBordello: er, unetbootin will allow you to save files and use the livecd environment permanently.05:04
nit-witDBordello, yes just make sure grub is pointed at the usb you're installing to , that is in the custom setup05:04
genewitchDBordello: you don't want a regular system on a thumb drive05:04
DamnSoGooDsorry, but none here knows :D i've already asked the,05:04
gogetaidlemind324: just slect the usb drive as the install media then as well as tell it to put grub on the usb drive05:04
bladeidlemind you can use unetbootin to do that i ran an os like that for over a year05:05
Guest57503hmm quick question05:05
DBordellogenewitch, why not?05:05
Guest57503i cant watch any videos on my ubuntu05:05
genewitchDBordello: swap will kill the drive itself05:05
genewitchGuest57503: any videos or web videos05:05
nit-witfud05:05
gogetaidlemind324: yea unetbootin can also setup a prestent install alot easer05:05
Guest57503like dvd video05:05
idlemind324thanks. i've seen lots of notes on running the desktop os as a live cd on your thumb drive but nothing i was able to find said i could install the server os to it05:05

genewitchrebooting to windows, talk to you folks tomorrow05:09
DBordelloSo I guess the decision is whether I want a regular installtion or "live" system on my USB key.  Pros/Cons?05:09
genewitchDBordello: the livecd is guaranteed to boot more than once05:09
genewitchDBordello: with no fuss and no grub config05:10
gogetaDBordello: grub tends to have a hart attack when you change pcs usb drive or not'05:10
DBordellogogeta, it will remain on the same machine.  Headless/diskless machine05:10
gogetaDBordello: then you can do nativ no issue05:10
DBordellogenewitch, what does the live system do when it needs to swap out?05:10
genewitchDBordello: crash, but why would it need to swap05:10
jen_hello all05:11
DBordellogenewitch, low on ram?05:11
Guest97451is there any RAM reader software for ubuntu?05:11
genewitchDBordello: you might be better off with a compact flash card, is this a laptop?05:11
bladelmao @ genwitch05:11
DBordellogenewitch, no, desktop.05:11
gogetagenewitch: not true ubuntu has a toram option if you got enough ram05:11
idlemind324ok so i got that app installed05:11
genewitchDBordello: for under $5 you can get a kit to make CF into normal IDE05:11
nit-wittofa, I think you may not be aware of the scroll feature in the grub menu, it shows in the bootscipt in the os-prober. Have you scrolled all the way to the bottom?05:11
idlemind324it's going through the paces atm05:11
gogetagenewitch: so you can load the entire os in ram05:11
genewitchgogeta: right but that's not swap05:11
DBordelloi am a little worried about the amount of ram as well05:12
idlemind324we shall see if it works. i'm interested in doing this to some kind of compact flash if possible down the line. i kind of like how you can buy a dell server with a cf chip them and load the cf up with esxi05:12
genewitchDBordello: use additional thumb drives as swap05:12
tofaYes, I think I have. All the partitions have been accessible before....05:12
genewitchDBordello: mkswap /dev/sd<thumbdriveletter05:12
DBordellogenewitch, why would a CF be better?  Besides being able to be IDE05:12
gogetaDBordello: well if you go nativ you need to install on that system or grub will choke and die05:12
DBordellogenewitch, okay.  Any reason I can't have that all on the same device?05:12
genewitchDBordello: faster, for a start. and it is an IDE drive, so linux loves it more than a USB drive.05:13
tofaNit-wit, I can try booting into windows again and see if works.05:13
DBordellogogeta, that is what I was planning05:13
gogetaDBordello: using a usb drive is fine eyther way just slect it05:13
DBordelloDo the live systems with persistent storage allow package installation, configurations, etc.05:13
genewitchDBordello: you can have it all on the same device but thumb drives aren't that fast to begin with. i dunno, give it a shot, but DD your device from another machine when you're done setting it up05:13
gogetaDBordello: i recomond btrfs with the ssd option on05:13
nit-wittofa, you have 7 kernel sets, it should be there. You have run the update-grub XP would not be there if it was not in the grub menu05:13
genewitchDBordello: yes they allow apt-get (i run backtrack on persistent usb)05:14
tofaNit-wit,  Yes, I think I have. All the partitions have been accessible before....05:14
DBordellogogeta, didn't even think about that.  Any reason why?05:14
gogetaDBordello: sd drives tend to need the same ruleset less writing to the drive longer life span05:14
tofaNit-wit, I'll give it a go then. Thanks for your help.05:14
genewitchgogeta: and swap is lots of writing05:14
DBordellogenewitch.  How does that work?  / isn't saved on reboot, right?05:14
genewitchgogeta: whcih is why i recommend another thumb drive :-)05:14
gogetaDBordello: no swap05:14
genewitchDBordello: yeah, it's persistent05:14
nit-wittofa, to be honest the "I think I have is not enough for me" run the update-grub command and look closely XP will be there I suspect, scroll to the bottom of the terminal05:15
gogetaDBordello: i genrelly dont have any issue running ubuntu without swap on a 4gb ssd05:15
genewitchgogeta: 4gb?05:15
genewitchgogeta: server?05:15
gogetagenewitch: netbook with btrfs ssd and compressed05:15
genewitchi have half a mind to drop ubuntu on an older laptop on a 4gb CF (i have xp on it right now)05:15
DBordellono swap sounds dangerous to me05:15
genewitchbtrfs?05:15
gogetagenewitch: whole os installed size 700mb hehe05:15
genewitchDBordello: the machine i am talking to you fromhas no swap05:15
genewitchDBordello: and 640mb of ram05:16
DBordellohmmm05:16
DBordelloi can beat that05:16
DBordellobarely05:16
gogetagenewitch: you have to trick the installer but it works05:16
genewitchDBordello: it means i have to restart a service every day, but other than that, it's cheap.05:16
tofaNitwit, Yes it is there.05:16
DBordellohmmm05:16
gogetaDBordello: well 640mb on a server shouldent be a issue relly05:17
nit-wittofa, so your set, you might clean out some of those kernels05:17
genewitchDBordello: wait, the irsii box is gentoo, no swap. it never crashes anything. the ubuntu box i am ssh'd into is the one that has a service silently die every day05:17
DBordelloSo, if the usb key remains with the same PC, I am hearing that there is no reason not to do a full install, and give er a little swap05:17
bladedbordello just pick up a small flash drive for swap05:17
DBordelloI have a 8gb USB 3.0 drive that I am going to be using. I feel like that should be sufficient05:17
genewitchDBordello: if you do a single thumb drive, make sure you have a straight dd backup05:17
genewitchDBordello: just to save the trouble05:17
DBordellogenewitch, good call05:17
gogetaDBordello: swaping on a sd drive just make it noit last as long05:18
bladedbordello it should be fine that is what i ran 9 10 for almost a year on was a 8 gig flash05:18
genewitchDBordello: and good luck. if it works for you i might try and make a server image that way05:18
tofaNit-wit, I've always been slightly annoyed by the number of options grub gives me to boot into when I start up. How do I clean them out?05:18
genewitchblade: keen05:18

gogetaDBordello: as  long as you dont mind replacing the drive every few months have at it05:18
Guest97451is there any RAM reader software for ubuntu?05:19
nit-wittofa, I use the easy method there is a app called ubuntu tweak that will do it easily. its not in the repos do you want a link05:19
DBordellogogeta, i see.  I'll give it a shot without swap05:19
tofaNit-wit, That would be brilliant.05:19
DBordelloand see how it feels05:19
genewitchrkj90266: i'm seeing stuff like "install itunes under wine"05:19
genewitchrkj90266: and a few ryhtmbox fixes05:19
genewitchrkj90266: did you get a ryhtmbox database error of any sort?05:19
gogetaDBordello: or get a relly cheap 1gb drive what are they these days 5$ and use it for swap05:20
bladenit-wit i have seen that but have never used it. do you like the results05:20
genewitchgogeta: aka readyboost05:20
genewitchDBordello: 4GB $8 :-D05:20
DBordellogenewitch, true.05:20
nit-witblade, yeah it is the easy gui way, I'm lazy05:20
genewitchi used a $5 thumb drive as swap when i was parsing wikipedia xmls05:20
DBordelloI guess with a live system, it is setup to not be thrashing on the drive.  Would the "liveness" of it start to annoy me if I am installing stuff, etc?05:21
bladenit-wit sounds like what i need then cuz so am i lol05:21
HackNewtonhay friends05:21
gogetaDBordello: couse even if you blow up swap the os will keep running and toss a new one in05:21
rkj90266genewitch yes, i get a whole series of "error: resource not found" messages when I try to sync05:21
HackNewtonwell i am big trouble here05:21
HackNewtoni changed my CompizConfig settings and i lost my complete unity desktop05:21

HackNewtondoes anyone know how to undo those effects ?05:22
genewitchrkj90266: i am looking sir05:22
HackNewtonblade, i cant access anything05:22
gogetaDBordello: but you said a server so your probly  not going to even need swap being your probly not going to be using tons of memery05:23
genewitchrkj90266: it seems like you're having an odd issue, perhaps submit a bug to rhythmbox maintainers?05:23
bladehacknewton log out and log back in before you put your password in at the lower rightish of the screen you can log in with different options05:23

zykotick9If anyone happens to still be around from me asking hours ago, the default timeout for the sudo command is 15 minutes (you can confirm with "man sudoers" and search for timestamp_timeout).  The timer does however reset any time sudo is used so attempting to "test" can be difficult, even the following courtesy #bash failed //  watch -tn1 'echo $(sudo date +"%H:%M:%S")' // however "sudo ls && sleep 16m && sudo ls" reasks for the sudo password.05:49

YankDownUnder  mrk1 Um...now ya lost me..."Right click the file" -> I don't get it...???06:01
mrk1yankdownunder i used to be able to share my files/folders by right clicking and saying share folder, that option is gone entirely06:02
bazhanguw_, I may have misunderstood, sorry, did you mean 'netboot' as opposed to using unetbootin to install iso to usb stick?06:02
DBordelloI am impressed with the usb LIVE installation.  It appears to be a real install :)  I installed a package, messed with /etc, and rebooted.  It all stayed.06:02
YankDownUndermrk1, Right - so you've done a re-install of Samba - have you, perchance, rebooted?06:02
uw_bazhang, i have the whole cd on the netboot server...how can i get it too look at that (preferably via NFS not HTTP or FTP)06:02
mrk1yankdownunder yes i have and still nothing..im stumped06:03
uw_bazhang, i mean over the network, i dont have a usb key06:03
mrk1yankdownunder i also have killalled nautilys06:03
YankDownUndermrk1, Look, in your Package Manager, there is an admin utiliity for Samba - ya might want to install it, and try this all over again...the other option is to completely remove samba from this machine, reboot, re-install samba, then try again...06:04
bazhanguw_, okay you said 'netbootin' I presumed wrongly you referred to 'unetbootin'06:04
uw_bazhang, it is requsting a mirror (something like us.archive.ubuntu.com)  i would like it too look locally, via the same NFS share that it used to grab other files from.06:05
mrk1yankdownunder alright, ill try that, thanks06:05
uw_bazhang, yes sorry about that.  i met "netbootin'" as a slang for "netbooting", the verb for using netboot06:05
uw_bazhang, i could set up a http or ftp server on this...but its kinda unessary just so the client can pull in files.  the NFS is set up and working properlly, why cant it just keep using that for everything on the CD as normal?06:07
bazhanguw_, I dont know much about the pxe netboot issue, sorry for the misunderstanding on my part06:07
uw_bazhang, ok understood.  thank you for your offering of help though06:08

KartagisI can't bring ubuntu back from sleep, where can I turn that off? power options?06:15

DBordelloActionParsnip, I used unetbootin with a persistent storage.  It is actually reall impressive.  It behaves like a full install06:18
ActionParsnipDBordello: if you run system updates then reboot you will have to older versions of the apps06:19

n00bRXI mean I have in the past, but at this point and juncture I wasn't not in compfiz.07:17

n00bRXFor instance, firefox gives me the option to minimize, maximize and then the "x" to close out.07:17

lartzamaalac: You need to remove the motherboard battery for quite some time07:56
zagibuDapper Drake was the best release, you should go back to that ;)07:56
zagibumaalac: or there might be a reset bios jumper on the board07:56
maalaclartza: how many minutes ? it's not attached to it right now but still not resetting..07:56
zagibuor clear cmos07:57

maalacok thanks for this.. i'll look for it ..08:06
ChousukeaikInsaan: I think that depends on what drivers it has08:06
aikInsaanChousuke, hmm...i have not clue about bootloaders...any resource you can point me to grasp the basics?08:07

jcreekMandrew, When you boot up 11.04, the first screen is your user name. Click on this, and the next screen is for password. Before you enter your password, look at the bottom panel.

mang0Uh oh. Guys, I followed a site explaining how to move the wine c drive, and I used the terminal method. I ran these two commands:  mv -v .wine/drive_c media and then ln -sv media .wine/drive_c.09:42
mang0media being the new location09:42
Free-manParkerR ok then, as root, dmesg | less; search within that output for $vendor09:42

intlkleinbluehi, i've generated my gpg/pgp key and uploaded it to public keyservers. i've setup my email client (evolution) to send and sign with gpg/gpg and tested it and it works. what i want to know is how to share my key. i see on some peoples websites on their about page: oh, here is my pgp/gpg key btw: and some listing of letters and numbers which is their key. i've tried to look for a pattern of some sort, but can't figure out what i need to 10:09
ThinkT510xxmmaann: you'll need to get a new harddrive then, you can make do for now with livecd or usb to use the pc without a harddrive10:09

[tla]JimXL: and some apps are running - just not sshd10:26
JimXL[tla]: if it's getting that far then getty should be running.10:26
dr_willisnewb:  as llutz_  mentioned you could do a 'watch -n 60 <thatcommandhegave>'10:27
dr_willisthat would update evry min.10:27

dr_willisnewb:  rcync/tar/cp would also be faster if the drive 1 is not very full..10:27
newbdr_willis, tks, approximately how long does it take for a 140gb to 450gb  ~?10:28
llutz_newb: just needs some changes in /etc/fstab and grub10:28

nikolamI would just like to have file system snapshots when updating Ubuntu , with lvm, whatever10:28
dr_willisover usb... well.. overnight. :)10:29
newbllutz, I presume killall doesnt kill the process10:29
dr_willisnewb:  if you forget to use that bs= option. it will take a lot longer10:29
[tla]JimXL: on-board VGA and nvidia card10:29
newbdid it with bs10:29
llutz_newb: killall -USR1  sends the USR1-signal to that process, which will answer with progress-message in ths case10:29
[tla]JimXL: tried shift while booting and nothing10:29
JimXLHave you tried both?10:29
JimXLBoth vga ports?10:30
nikolamThinkT510, do not want to reinstall ubuntu if something goes wrong for update. Only things I know is that Linux LVM have snapshots , there is mdadm for software RAID that I currently use and there os Btrfs still in Beta10:30
[tla]JimXL: yes10:30
JimXLOK remove one of them, it's possible there's a conflict.10:30
[tla]JimXL: it's like it is not bringing either of them up10:30
[tla]JimXL: the nvidia also has HDMi which i havent tried10:30
JimXLIf it's not activating the vga, it's probably not going to have HDMi output.10:31
ThinkT510nikolam: i have no experience with lvm or raid, i just wanted to make sure you were aware btrfs isn't production ready (which you evidently do)10:31
nikolamThinkT510, I think there is one guy who installed Ubuntu from boot on ZFS, using still developing ZFS module for Linux. Only problem was file system permission being flat.10:32
nikolamMeaning, he installed, then copied install on ZFS10:32

[tla]JimXL: ok, i see output on the nvidia VGA now.  seems the cable had to be connected before i powered it on for it to use it10:33
nikolamThinkT510, no. native Linux ZFS. Still under development but can be tested10:33
JudgeThis is very interesting, since update-rc.d was very easy to use in scripts and the like.10:33
JimXL[tla] interesting.10:33

newbtks guys10:34
JimXL[tla] good deal.10:34
ThinkT510nikolam: i thought there were licsence inompatibilities that prevent you from using zfs nativly on linux (hence the development of btrfs)10:34
nikolamThinkT510, thing is that because of CDDL/GPL licensing differences, module could be compiled on site after install.10:34
nikolamYes, ThinkT510 but noone stops yopu compiling it yourself, or even automatically compile it after install.10:35
ThinkT510nikolam: while this is interesting we better stop, its getting off topic10:35

need_helpi'm running ubuntu 10.10 and i have firefox 4 installed - how do i install firefox 3.6 to a separate place, so it doesn't interfere with my ff4 install?10:38
JimXL[tla] it may be related to the nvidia card.10:38
ThinkT510Phalstaff: i'd guess that depends on your usage of the terminal and what shell you want10:39

Sidewinder1need_help, That sounds a little tricky; perhaps you could create a different user-name (help_needed?), log-in under that name and install FF 3.6 there. It's be a pain though, you'd have to switch users each time.10:41
PhalstaffI think they all use the bash shell ... I am thinking that if I were to distribute a program I would want a common terminal.10:42
NoahLoL ubuntu.10:42

JimXLHektoR: maybe see this http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linuxunix-recover-deleted-files.html10:43

PhalstaffThank you szal that is news to me! I will check out what the Dash Shell is all about.10:44
ThinkT510!dash | Phalstaff10:44
ubottuPhalstaff: /bin/sh links to the DASH shell in all releases since Ubuntu Edgy (6.10). Since DASH is not 100% compatible with the BASH shell, some scripts might break. You can make scripts execute using BASH by changing the first line of the script to « #! /bin/bash10:44
szalNoah: Sparc is a niche architecture..  if you want Sparc, use Debian or NetBSD or SunOS ;)10:44

HyperbyteNoah, why are you asking about Sparc if you already know the answer?10:45

codehotterhello. How do I create a virtual interface on ubuntu? (I do not want to add an ip alias to eth0, I need a seperate virtual interface)11:51
iceroot!upstart | woky11:51
ubottuwoky: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/11:51
coz_Phylock,  I have noticed this occurs with compiz git,, video memory gets filled and things begin to lag big time at leas on a dual monitor system,, blaming the nvidia driver mainly,,, let me check hold on11:51
dr_williswoky:  how did you install vbox?11:52
coz_Phylock,  one thing is to open ccsm and check which refresh rate has been assigned11:52
wokySo I did 'start vboxdrv' and it says it's unknown job11:52
Phylockcoz_ - it is a dualmonitor setup, can i install an older version of compiz?11:52
wokydr_willis: apt-get install virtualbox-ose virtualbox-ose-dkms11:53
dr_willisPhylock:  ive seen guides on downgradeing compiz11:53
shadyzgeekhey who is ready naw11:53
coz_Phylock,   well, not sure that is going to help,,  I would check refresh rate under general options  ,, untick  "Detect refresh rate"  which will enable the refresh rate slider  and play with that,, another thing,, is to open ccsm / prreferences and reset to defaults11:53
coz_Python132o,   or   in terminal   compiz --replace & disown11:54
shadyzgeekhello11:54
shadyzgeekGud morning11:54
wokyonly files with name 'vboxdrv' are in /usr/src and /var/lib/dkms11:54
ThinkT510shadyzgeek: need help?11:54
coz_Phylock,  are you using a lazer mouse by chance?11:54
Phylockcoz_ - yep11:55
wokyiceroot: <flame>copared to systemd, upstart sucks</flame> :P11:55
coz_Phylock,  ah I am reading some issues with lazer mouse being the cause of the issue11:55
szalwoky: systemd doesn't look like being ready for prime time just yet -- just read the opensuse-factory mailing list ;)11:55
coz_Phylock, let me link you to the bug report   https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/764330  scroll down to Phhil Doroff  post11:56
ubottuUbuntu bug 764330 in compiz (Ubuntu) "Move window annoying slow with compiz" [Undecided,Confirmed]11:56

Deesltryng to install Ubuntu 11.04 on a Lenovo B560 laptop. The wifi does not work, tells me that its disabled by a hardware switch.. Although the switch is actually on and the bluetooth is being detected. I have already removed acer_wmi module. Unable to figure out further.11:58
Deeslplease help11:58
wokySo I did 'dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-ose-dkms' and vboxdrv suddenly appeared ...11:59
codehotterI solved my problem by installing 'tunctl' from the uml-utilities package, created a tap device, which does what I need.11:59
mienDeesl, have you checked if there is some on/off in bios?12:00
ActionParsnipDeesl: if you run:  sudo rfkill unblock all     does it work12:02

wokydpkg thinks  2.13-0ubuntu13 is less than 2.3.212:13
mmanActionParsnip, its just a script that runs an app in other location12:13
ParkerRwoky, that cannot be fixed easily12:14
Michelewhat?12:14
mmanActionParsnip, nop, it still doesnt run12:14
wokyParkerR: why? why --force-* doesnt work?12:14
ActionParsnipmman: was it above the exit 0 line?12:14
ParkerRwoky, because tons of packages depend on libc6 so updating it breaks everyting else12:14
ParkerRAnd you have an unusable system12:15
mmanActionParsnip, yes.  MAYBE it has to run after the boot12:15
wernerdevHey everyone.12:15
wokyParkerR: but the version in Ubuntu is 2.13-0ubuntu13 which is cleary higher than 2.3.2 isn't it ?12:15
wokyeven --force-all doesn't work :/12:15
wernerdevI hope someone can give me some quick help with Netatalk 2.212:15
ParkerR2.3.2 > 3.13 afaik12:15
ActionParsnipmman: yes, the script is called at boot time12:16
mmanActionParsnip, actually that is the only line i have above the exit 012:16
dr_willissome apps may require specific versions od libs. ;(12:16

wokylemme check12:16
wernerdevAnyone running Netatalk 2.2 beta?12:16
mmanActionParsnip, yup except the usual commens12:16

wernerdevThanks to OS X Lion I had to update to Netatalk 2.2 for TimeMachine to work again.12:17
mmandr_willis, it starts tomcat12:17
wokyEven if it was higher than current version, why --force-all don't force it ?12:17
wernerdevUpdate went fine except for that it's slow upon first connection...12:18
ikoniawernerdev: this channels for ubuntu support, we don't support netatalk or mac os here12:18
ActionParsnipwernerdev: that's Apple for you12:18
wernerdevWell my thought was: Netatalk runs on Ubuntu12:18
wernerdevSo maybe there is something known about 2.2 beta 412:18
dr_willismman:  it could be its getting ran befor networking is fully up. try a 'sleep 30' above the command in rc.local - no & at the end. to make it wait 30 sec12:19
mmandr_willis, http://pastebin.com/Gx8m6VqJ12:19
wernerdevBut I will look somewhere else then...12:19
ikoniawernerdev: it does, but you're not using it on ubuntu , so use the net talk support resources or the apple ones12:19
wolswernerdev: if there is, check the bugtracker12:19
wernerdevOk12:19
wolsikonia: you sure he isn't running his netatalk on ubuntu?12:20
ParkerRwols, no he said on Mac OS X12:20
ikoniawols: he said he was running it on mac and thanks to lion had to upgrade, that gave me a bit of a clue12:20
ikonia:)12:20
wolsnetatalk doesn't run on OSX12:20
mmandr_willis, nop, still doesnt work12:20
wernerdevNo people, I am running Netatalk on Ubuntu Server :)12:21
wernerdevI'm not that stupid :P12:21
ikonia???12:21
wolsikonia: do you know what netatalk is? it lets linux talk to OSX machines. mainly used for time machine. e.g. that OSX time machine can backup onto some ubuntu harddisk storage for example12:21
wernerdevUsing it on my Ubuntu NAS server.12:21
dr_willismman:   could be it needs to be ran with different enviroment/path settings, or some other quirk.  cd to the dir where the script is at then run it perhaps.12:22
ikoniawols: yeah, it was just the wording12:22
ikoniawernerdev: my apologies if I missunderstood12:22
wernerdevNo problem12:22
DeeslActionParsnip: I reinstalled the STA driver12:22
szalMiss Understood? ;)12:22
mmandr_willis, still on the rc.local?12:22
Deeslbut it still tells me that the interface is disabled by a hardware switch12:22
MysteriousManhow to change the size and the color of label ??12:23
wolswernerdev: but as you can see, hard to get help for it here. some OSX channel or better yet, netatalk support place is probably best. too specialized a questinn. you could also check the ubuntu bug DB12:23
dr_willismman: yes.  or make it run some other script that does the cd, then sleep thenruns the command.. perhaps log the errors to a file also12:23

LasersDeesl: I don't think it's a damaged hardware. I think it's just frustration dealing with rfkill / software switch / hardware switch. I went through one myself.12:27
mmandr_willis, didnt work with cd. mmm let me show you what the script does: http://pastebin.com/MxSrVt4t12:27
DeeslActionParsnip: no I dont12:28

wolsAdamT_: something is not right. samba is not a webserver for starters12:31
DeeslAdamT_: webserver != samba AFAIK12:31
wolsand httpd.conf is pretty much empty last I checked12:31
wolsAdamT_: grep -r -i listen /etc/apache2/12:32
dr_willismman:  rc.local is the last service to start.  so with the sleep it is the last... but  rynning from rc.local may  have differedt path and other settings then the users bash shell does12:32
wonderworldhi i am looking for a tool that can resize batches of images graphically (frontend for imagemagick or something like that)12:32
AdamT_Yeah, I'm not real sure what I am doing... the person before me set this all up.12:32
DeeslAdamT_: what is that you are trying to achieve?12:33
MysteriousManQuestion : how to change the size and the color of gtkmm label ??12:33
kitchewonderworld: why not just use imagemagick considering that it is a gui program also12:33
mmandr_willis, yup, as you said!! this is what the log says: Neither the JAVA_HOME nor the JRE_HOME environment variable is defined12:33
mmanAt least one of these environment variable is needed to run this program12:33
ActionParsnipDeesl: is this a loaptop? If so what model?12:33

wolsAdamT_: then you did it totally wrong. run the command I showed you above12:34

wolsphper_: cause you can't leave out in between versions. your 8.04 is a LTS so you can upgrade to 10.04 LTS and from there to 10.10 and from there then finally to 11.0412:47
tristan3199usi have natty narwhal..12:47
tristan3199uswhat ever number that is..12:47
szalphper_: because that's not supported as in 1 step; what is supported is 8.04 -> 10.04 -> 10.10 -> 11.04, and in that case a reinstall is faster12:47
tristan3199uswols: ?12:47

wolsAdamT_: whoever managed your apache2 before is a moron and didn't set up vhosts the way he should have. so your first order is to find out how he mangled it (that is if default and default-ssl are the only entries in /etc/apache2/sites-available/)13:08

wolsLoRd_UnDeRwOrLd_: you might, but if you do, the data was corrupted in the first place. do a backup if you can beforehand13:10
AdamT_wols: those are the only 2 files in sites-available.  Inside the httpd.conf file there is the definition of each site with the servername and document root using <virtualhost *80>13:10

wdpHey. I haven't used Ubuntu before, so I'm not sure whether that is normal behaviour; I'm used to source-based linux distributions and I'm using linux for more than 14 years (I just want to point out, that I'm not an unexperienced user, so also "difficult" aproaches might be helpful to me). I just compared a plain Ubuntu installation with Lunar's. In X11 when I move the mouse very fast my lunar gives me at maximum a cpu usage of 8% for XOrg (no nautilus t13:22
wdphere, xfce4). The Ubuntu gives me 20% cpu usage for XOrg and 20% cpu usage for nautilus (gnome). I did some things to the Ubuntu Install (putting /tmp to tmpfs, replacing getty with fgetty, setting noatime for the partitions except for home, where i use relatime, such stuff) and the cpu usage went down to 11% for XOrg and 11% for nautilus.13:22
aetaswols: is this just to turn on his wifi card?13:22
wolsDeesl: it sucks but that's ACPI for you13:22
ActionParsnipwdp: which video chip are you using?13:22
Deeslso I need to *get* a copy of windows :D13:22
wdpAs far as i know, this shouldn't happen. That usage should be between 1 and 10% at most. Also I'm wondering why it's happening for "nautilus" also, that's just a file browser, why is it getting a load when i move the mouse?13:23
wdpActionParsnip, plain install, ATI KMS i guess.13:23
dr_willisi have had wireless switches turn off in linux. but i had to boot to windows to turn wireless back on.. i think a later update fixed that quirk for that laptop. i just never ever.. use that switch ;)13:23
ActionParsnipwdp: nautilus also draws the desktop icons, its not just a file browser13:23
wdpActionParsnip, i checked glxinfo | grep render - it's not Software Rasterizing.13:23
wolswdp: makes no sense. if you move your cursor and it causes load it's most probably X or one of its drivers (e.g. 3D driver needing lots of CPU)13:23

dr_willistomek_:  why do you need it..13:24

dr_willistomek_:  you do relize its jusg going to scan files for windows viruses..13:25
renaldocreativetomek you don't have to worry about viruses, adware, etc13:25
wdpszal, depends. Those 11% alone would be okay, but i get 11% for nautilus and 11% for XOrg - means 22% of the cpu are used just for moving the mouse.13:25
tomek_yes, windows13:25
mmantomek_, i use mcafee command line, good in my eyes13:25
dr_willisand do little for 'security' theres several av tools for linux, clamav is in the repos13:25
wdpHowever; Is there something i could do, to improve that? Are there alternatives for nautilus? Would using a propritary driver fix that issue?13:25
wolsszal: 8% is too high from the start imho13:25

dr_willisDeesl:  windows has some legit/legal free rescue isos you can get also. but not sure about drivers for wireless in them.13:27
howlymowlyhi poeple..   short question:  since yesterday or so I always get a message:  WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!  when using aptitude   I also can not use the "software-center" anymore13:27
mang0wols: k13:27
alazare619aetas, had me stumped tho why the hell isnt samba installed by default in xubuntu or any xfce distro now?13:27
mang0ActionParsnip: k13:27
howlymowlyany idea what hapened?13:27
ActionParsniphowlymowly: can you give  a pastebin of the output of:  sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade     (close software centre etc first)13:27
dr_willisalazare619:  its not default in ubuntu either.13:27
wdpActionParsnip, or any idea how to debug what's causing that?13:27
mienis there any way to boot the live cd with raid support?13:27
=== engrid is now known as sundar
aetasalazare619, not everyone uses it.  actually I very rarely use it13:28
alazare619dr_willis, it use to have the shared folders icon tho that would install it thats missing too13:28
ActionParsnipwdp: not sure, seems a bit weird, it the RAM healthy?13:28
wdpyep.13:28
mang0ActionParsnip: It's still not working. Now it wants to uninstall epiphany, not install firefox, but install 200mb of other stuff I don't want13:28
wolsmien: there must be or you couldn't have installed onto your raid13:28
szalwols: I have X running at somewhere between 7 and 10%, occasionally spiking to 15%, and moving the mouse pointer in circles doesn't do much to increase that (5% at worst)13:28
mienwols, thats right, do u know how i can do it too? :)13:28
dr_willisalazare619:  i can access windows sharew without it.. and if i set up a share it asks to install samba13:29
wolsmang0: is there any reason you can't just install ffox and remove epiphany afterwards?13:29
szalwols: and that is after 5 days of uptime13:29
wolsmien: since I don't use a raid, n :)13:29
mang0wols: I don't want firefox13:29
mang0or epiphany13:29
wdpszal, see, here it's differently. X idle is 0-1% cpu. Moving the mouse is nautilus 11-25% and XOrg 11-20% :)13:29
aetasmien: software or hardware raid?13:29
wolswdp: gnome/unity?13:29
wdpi just installed ubuntu LTS13:29
wdpand did an update. i guess unity is not installed.13:30
wdpjust gnome.13:30
mienaetas, software13:30
* szal blames Gnome13:30
alazare619at login screen you can make it so you dont load unity by choosing gnome classic wdp13:30
mienaetas, i would like be able to mount /dev/md013:30
wolsmang0: show us the exact output of your command or it's not possible to help you (imho). and chances are you must have some browser or other installed due to dependencies. and no opera doesn't count since it's not a properly made .deb13:30
mang0wols: I installed opera from a .deb13:31
aetasmien, this is linux kernel software raid or what?13:31
mang0but okay, I'll pastebin13:31
wolswdp: my suggestion is to use a light environment without any 3D rendering or such13:31
wdpalazare619, there just gnome and gnome (secure mode or something, got it translation)13:31
wolsmang0: read what I wrote13:31
wdps/there/there's13:31
mang0wols: ah13:31
ActionParsnipwdp: http://digitizor.com/2010/05/10/how-to-install-unity-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx/13:32
mienaetas, what i want is to have /dev/md devices recognized, i dont know much about raid...13:32
wolsmang0: is your diskspace really so precious that you need to save the 10MB or so ffox/epiphany uses?13:32
wolsActionParsnip: I doubt he wants to13:32
wdpwols, mhm. Yeah. guessed so. I was just hopeing that anyone here would have an idea how to configure nautilus differently for example. Like not updating the desktop in realtime or something.13:32
ActionParsnipwols: why?13:32
aetasmien, Im basically asking what you used to set the raid up13:32
wolsActionParsnip: read the log13:32
alazare619wdp,  odd you could install xfce desktop enviorment that doesnt have unity then remove gnome then no more unity, unity hates my pc for some odd reason13:32
wdpalazare619, heh. Thanks so far :)13:33
aetasmien, see if this helps at all http://www.jeffsplace.net/node/1413:33
mienaetas, default presets for raid 1 in the ubuntu installation13:33
ActionParsnipwols: I'm not following you13:33
mang0wols: well not really, but I'd rather not have them. Just annoying. Lol. http://pastebin.com/2Mcan6Kq ActionParsnip <----13:33
aetasmien, ok yeah, try the directions on that website.  it obviously detected it since it has the device13:33
wolswdp: experiment: use a very basic driver (VESA?) and see if the same happens. imho it's probably something like transparency or such that fscks up. you know, the "fancy stuff"13:33
wdpActionParsnip, people report, that "removing" unity would help in my case, as unity is not even installed, installing it would cause the opposite effect.13:33
wdpActionParsnip, thats, what he means.13:34
alazare619wdp,  what kind of graphics card are you running by chance?13:34
wdpsome odd onboard ati graphiccard. just a sec.13:34
mienaetas, thx alot! exactly what i was looking for13:34
aetaswdp, is this one of the shared ram onboard cards like laptops have?13:34
aetasmien, np, it work?13:34
Joupimang0, As ActionParsnip wrote, you need a browser which is a proper .deb13:35
wdpaetas, yeah. i can add ram in the bios. currently its set to auto (32mb)13:35
mienaetas, soon we will se :)13:35
wdplemme guess, that's causing it? :)13:35
wolsmang0: or you fake one via equivs13:35
Joupiin this case it wants to install konqueror ;-)13:35
mang0wols: ?13:35
* wdp forgot about that.13:35
mang0Joupi: bother.13:35
alazare619wdp,  ok what wols said is kidna right expecept afaik vesa is just for intel have you tried applications > sstem > hard ware drivers ? and installed the proprietary ati drivers for your card?13:35
wolsmang0: apt-cache show equivs13:35

zerium1having some issues with Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS and php's ftp package... ftp_nlist is simply not working13:35
wdpalazare619, vesa is for nearly every graphiccard :)13:35
aetaswdp, those aren't full graphics cards since they share the ram.  if you throw 3d effects at them they usually cause higher cpu/mem usage than fully hardware ones13:35
wolszerium1: does a normal ftp client work?13:36
zerium1wols: yes and so does php from my mac13:36
wdpaetas, i disabled effects; and i dont think theres a lot 3d needed to draw a moving mouse cursor. or?13:36
zerium1same code, same connection13:36
KrenairCan you upgrade kernel 2.6.32-33-generic to 3 on Ubuntu 10.04?13:36
alazare619wdp hmm i havent read about vesa in awhile13:36
zerium1i thought it was that my tmpdir wasn't set but I set it in my path and still not working13:36
aetaswdp, was this always this way or did it start at some point?13:36
wolswdp: normally mouse cursors are hardware cursors (even on IGPs), but maybe it chose a software cursor for some reason?13:36
moreno_Murdock13:37
Anthony__Hello everyone.  Can someone help me create a new database13:37
Murdockhi moreno13:37
ActionParsnipKrenair: yes but we cannot support you then as you will be using a 3rd party kernel13:37
wolsKrenair: what for?13:37
aetasAnthony_, care to be a bit more specific?13:37
szalKrenair: there's not even a stable release of kernel 3.0 yet13:37
KrenairActionParsnip, 3rd party kernel...?13:37
wdpaetas, i never used ubuntu before; so i can just compare with different distributions. On those i never used gnome, so i can only compare with xfce4. And thus.. all my comparisations are somehow fail. However; this is a "fresh" install of ubuntu LTS. Downloaded the iso today, installed today. Updated today.13:37
Krenairszal: https://plus.google.com/102150693225130002912/posts13:37
ActionParsnipKrenair: there is a kernel ppa, use it at your own risk. I suggest you simply wait for oneiric to be released and use that (or use the alpha 2)13:37
ActionParsnipKrenair: yes, not maintained by the ubuntu team13:38
wolsKrenair: basically, anything but the ubuntu made kernels is unsupported. including using a kernel from a different ubuntu version, tho there are reasons why this sometimes is needed. what is your reason for kernel 3.0?13:38
wolsKrenair: there might be a solution for your problem without changing kernels13:38
KrenairActionParsnip, Linux is not maintained by the ubuntu team13:38
aetaswdp, ok that helps.  hrmm...lemme think if there's something else to try13:38
Krenairwols: I do not have a problem, I want to try out the latest kernel version.13:38

wolszerium1: no. but a strong suggestion: stop using ftp. it's evil.13:40
aetaswdp, I know you can change the mouse poll interval and also if the polling rate is set high it will start sucking up cpu.  on vanilla ubuntu this is changed in CompizConfig Settings Manager but I'm not sure on there13:40

arkanabaraetas, I think thrillERboy wants to rescue some files from his wubi install14:17
thrillERboyarkanabar: exactly14:18
aetasyeah, I told him to make the cd :)14:18
W4RH4WKi want to encrypt my file system. is it save to use an encrypted LVM when install ubuntu /debian with a complex password or is it easy to break this kind of encryption14:18
* thrillERboy burning cd now14:18
wolsOxymoron: sure it is, tho you will have probelms if you use the proprietary nvidia drivers14:18
wolsW4RH4WK: it's not easy to brak14:19
Oxymoronwols: Why? :)14:19
wols*break14:19
aetasthrillERboy, so you have it installed into a boot image on the windows partition?14:19
arkanabarthrillERboy, go to nonags.com and search for archiving tools, see if you can find one to open up your wubi files.14:19
wolsOxymoron: cause the nvidia drivers are proprietary and don't work like linux drivers should work. nouveau does14:19
OxymoronW4RH4WK: Why do you encrypt in the first place?14:19
Oxymoronwols: Well, does nouveau works some kind of stable then or is it unusable as earlier? :P14:20
NoReGreTi'm having trouble with suspending the system, it just freezes with a black screen, so i read somehwere to use "acpitool", that worked by suspending, but waking up is failing with the same black screen, any solutions? i'm on HP DV6 with dual GPUs14:20
arkanabarOxymoron, encryption is generally a good idea, ESP on laptops.14:20
thrillERboyyes aetas14:20
Oxymoronarkanabar: ESP?14:20
cdavisnyuszika7h: I installed the cli tools and emptied the trash. Then I tested by deleting something and it now shows up. Perhaps somethign just got out of whack.14:20
W4RH4WKOxymoron, i am working with critical data on my laptop, and if i lose my laptop ...14:20
arkanabarOxymoron, sorry.  especially.14:20
thrillERboyarkanabar: do you recommend any specific tools?14:21
OxymoronW4RH4WK: Just curious, what kind of critical data? :)14:21
aetasthrillERboy, ok then yeah, you should try to boot into the rescue through wubi and fsck the partition14:21
nyuszika7hcdavis: Or the file you moved to Trash was a hidden file - those aren't displayed in Nautilus by default.14:21
arkanabarW4RH4WK, you may prefer an OS that encrypts the entire disk, eg Mandriva or fedora.14:21
thrillERboyaetas: meaning inside grub> menu?14:21
cdavisnyuszika7h: I don't believe so, there were about 30 files listed in the files directory.14:21
Oxymoronarkanabar: Its easier not to encrypt anything ... Even if you do, its not worth it as it can be forced anyway.14:22
W4RH4WKOxymoron, mainly patient data, dossiers and stuff like this14:22
nyuszika7hcdavis: What do you mean?14:22
thrillERboymy ubuntu files are inside (hd0,msdos3)14:22
aetasthrillERboy, you would hop into the rescue cd at that point, yeah14:22
MrNthDegreewho needs to encrypt the whole disk?14:22
OxymoronW4RH4WK: Aha I see :) Well if anyone even would like the information they could hack your computer anyway :P14:22
nyuszika7hIf you use `ls -a', or you have `ls' aliased to `ls -a', it's possible that it always shows hidden files.14:22
W4RH4WKOxymoron, yes of course, i am aware of this fact. But that's another topic...14:23
wolsarkanabar: ubuntu can do this too14:23
cdavisnyuszika7h: Within ~/.local/share/Trash/files I could see there were about 30 files listed. However, when opening the trash can the spinner spun for about 3 minutes and eventually dispalyed nothing at all14:23
OxymoronAnyone able to help meout with my HDMI output problem?14:23
W4RH4WKOxymoron, i am afraid of losing my laptop, somebody finds it and starts to blackmail me14:23
thrillERboyaetas: unknown command: fsck14:23
OxymoronW4RH4WK: In other words, I dont see any reason for encrypt it. And if you must, encrypt USB stick or something, and work on only that ;)14:24
wolsthrillERboy: "sudo"14:24
OxymoronW4RH4WK: Why would anyone bother to blackmail a private person? :P14:24
DamnSoGooDhow can i install a downloaded app?14:24

ubottuOxymoron: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!14:24
aetasthrillERboy, where are you at this point?14:24
wolsDamnSoGooD: depends on the format it come sin14:24
arkanabar@all, encryption is required of anyone storing confidential data, eg medical professionals, lawyers, therapists.  @wols, ubuntu encrypts /home.  fedora and mandriva encrypt EVERYTHING.14:25
Oxymoronbazhang: Yeah I guess I go off topic :P14:25
W4RH4WKOxymoron, well, why not, cash is always a good approach14:25

W4RH4WKOxymoron, i think you are right and i am just to paranoid... i will install encrypted LVM anyway... at least it doesn't cost me anything14:27

jnsl_Hey guys! I'm trying to mount a folder with sshfs, it works if i don't use sudo (if i use sudo i don't have permissions for the dir i'm trying to mount), however i would like to mount the dir in /media/ and for this i need sudo! argh14:28
wolsW4RH4WK: no you cannot. you can use LUKS for it tho14:29
aetasjnsl_, so change the permissions or add that user to the group for that directory14:29
W4RH4WKwols, ok, ty... i think i once read about LUKS in a gentoo manual or so..14:29
aetasjnsl_, or mount it somewhere that user has access and link it into media14:29
wolsjnsl_: show us the command and output for the time when you try it with sudo, cause this doesn't sound right14:29
thrillERboyls -l shows partitions and its info aetas14:30
jnsl_okay 1sec14:30
aetasthrillERboy, ok, try the few lines on that website.  I think that will fix it14:30
W4RH4WKjnsl_, adding a line to fstab allows you to mount / unmount as normal user14:31
aetaswols, I wonder if hes trying to mount it without providing the ssh user and since hes sudoing to root, it tries to log him in as root14:31
jnsl_"sshfs jn@myserver:/var/www /media/myserver" this give me "read: Connection reset by peer"14:31
aetas...how did you jump from that to permissions problems?14:32
faLUCEis there a text editor which I can control through scripts? for example: I can implement a script that writes "foo" in the text editor, or that moves the cursor14:32
jnsl_err with sudo that one14:32
W4RH4WKjnsl_, this would be my line in fstab> sshfs#w4rh4wk@xray:/    /mnt/xray   fuse    rw,noauto,user,noexec,sync,reconnect,fsname=sshfs#w4rh4wk@xray:/    0   014:32
jnsl_if i dont use sudo and mount in my home folder it works14:32
wolsjnsl_: you didn't use sudo above either14:32
wolsand a connection reset by peer has NOTHING to do what user runs it locally14:33
jnsl_wols wopps that was a spelling mistake, sorry, that was with sudo14:33
Deeslanyway14:33
Deeslnow for the next laptop14:33
jnsl_i will try fstab it14:33
aetasthat won't help right now14:33
thrillERboywhat is the latest kernal version for ubuntu I updated 2 days ago. end its with .10 and starts with 2.614:34
[tla]faLUCE: emacs commands are written in a lisp style language that you can extend / reuse as much as you like.  may be overkill for what you want though.14:34
LasersfaLUCE: vim?14:34
CloudAche84I have 3.0. something or other14:34
LasersfaLUCE: I mentioned autokey. Don't know if you got it.14:34
aetasjnsl_, I think its probably the ssh key problem14:34
thrillERboyor many be starts with 2.8 I'm not sure, but, I'm sure it end with .1014:35
grendal_primeanyone here use nagios?14:35
aetasjnsl_, can you try and sudo ssh (not sshfs) into that server with the same line and tell me what it does?14:35
jpdsgrendal_prime: #ubuntu-server might be a better place to ask.14:35
faLUCELasers: autokey was for another question14:35
grendal_primewe got this guy that is continually dinking around with various monitoring apps.14:35
grendal_primeok thanks14:35

dr_willissudo ssh? im not sure that will work14:35
shomonhow do I get apache to automatically load index.htm files when it gets to directories without an index.html?14:35
jnsl_so sudo dosent have the same key as my user14:36
aetasjnsl_, bingo, there you go.  you have public key security setup but root doesn't have the public key that you gave your user14:36
aetasfix that problem and it should work fine14:36
LasersfaLUCE: Was autokey what you were looking for?14:36
aetasit should be in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts  you can just copy it from that user14:36
=== snimavat is now known as sn
jnsl_ok, i ask dumb now but is it ok to give sudo my ssh keys?14:37
aetaswhat do you mean?14:37
aetasit just puts them in root's known_hosts files and is probably more secure than having them in your user actually14:38
jnsl_okay i will try that, thanks :)14:38
aetasnp :)14:38

elijahWould it be bad to use the dd command with a block size of 64m ???14:40
shomonthanks tsimpson will check14:41
elijahdd is just so slow with the default bs=51214:41
dr_williselijah: once you get over 4mb i think you see no gain and may loose speed14:41
dr_willisi thought default was 1k14:42
elijahI am getting 9MBps with dd running at bs=512, both drives are on esata and can handle way more than that.14:42

dr_williselijah: i recall over 4mb is pointless. from my research ages ago14:43
aetasdr_willis, I imagine it would depend on the system you run it on14:44
aetasewww browser IRC14:44
elijahdr_willis: Hmm, using bs=16m bumped it to 16MBps but bumping it to bs=32m still keeps it at 16 MBps14:44

cisshow can i debug this further?15:00
Titanoboa4oh. burned a cd (ubuntu 11.04) from another computer and booted that15:01

aetasmystiqueba, yeah it looks like ryhthmbox has a store attached to it15:03
arkanabardualbootah, then it is in /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/Program Files15:03
helibut if I want run program as  other user15:03
kongo_86arkanabar: i tried it all the way tru f1215:03
Piciheli: sudo -u otherusername15:04
kongo_86its just completely locks up15:04
dualbootahthe .wine is hidden15:04
wolsheli: sudo can run as any other user too15:04
dualbootahi need to unhdie it but idk how15:04
TBotNikantivirtel: Haven't done that, use migration assistant for backup and sync, but think there is a backkup and/or export add-in, so check there.15:04
Titanoboa4wols: well yeah i can access internet15:04
wolsdualbootah: you can't. and you don't need to either15:04
arkanabarkongo_86, yeah, obviously it does.  I'm gonna guess you can't even change your capslock setting.15:04
gribouillewols, how can I solve the problem?15:04
gilrezhello everyone!15:04
dualbootahwols its not there it must be hidden15:04
mystiquebaaetas:  ok, I'll install it now and see15:04
lostcowboyHello, I have this problem in 10.04 where on the login screen/gdm when switching users or from a fresh start/restart has half the screen as black with a magnified mouse of a sorts, and also, it accepts my password and authenticates, yet throws me back to the login after doing so about 3 times before finally letting me into my desktop. What gives?15:04
kongo_86arkanabar: ding ding NOPE!15:05
fabianhjrI am trying to install Ubuntu on an external 3TB drive. It fails at the end telling me it cannot install GRUB. After searching it has to do with the WD Advanced Format that is lying about being 512 sectors instead of 4K. Also during the installation it only shows me 1/8 of the capacity that is really there while Disk Utility shows me the "real" capacity.(11.04-Natty)15:05
arkanabardualbootah, you will just have to go through every menu in your file manager.  I could tell you if it was PCManFM, but you're probably using nautilus15:05
wolsTitanoboa4: then connect to the itnernet now instead from your phone and pastebin the output of fdisk -l15:05
wdpaetas, ok. i know now whats causing it.15:05
dualbootahoh i got it!15:05
wolsTitanoboa4: rather, sudo fdisk -l15:05
dualbootahi just had to hit control h15:05
aetasTitanoboa4, it sounds like the install failed so you will likely need your LiveCD in there every boot basically15:05
wolswdp: what?15:05
aetaswdp, yay, what?15:05
kongo_86arkanabar: so are they any logs i can look at?15:05
kongo_86see what cause it15:05
heliok ut when i use sudo -u username progam then i dont see gui15:05
arkanabarkongo_86, you've gone well past the limits of my knowledge.15:05
wolsgribouille: dpkg -l |grep nvidia for a start15:06
Titanoboa4wols: well im inthe middle of the installation, how am i supposed to connect?15:06
* arkanabar doesn't fool around with virtual machines.15:06
helianyone know this?15:06
dualbootahyou supposed to add some sort of opengl line to the wow config.wtf file for it to work on ubuntu graphics?15:06
kongo_86arkanabar: no prob!! thanks for your hlep15:06
dualbootahdoes anyone know what line it is15:06
thrillERboyaetas: I can't find my linux kernal? where can I find it?15:06
aetaswols, Im not sure hes actually on a live cd, this may be an actual install CD15:06
arkanabardualbootah, go to http://ofwineandwarcraft.blogspot.com15:06
wolsdualbootah: wow needs a commandline switch for opengl IIRC15:06
wdpaetas, i'm used to play fast paced ego shooters, so i'm having gaming-mouses from razer here. I changed the mouse polling rate to 1000hz (which is quite fine on my other box) and it causes 50% xorg cpu usage and 17% nautilus usage in ubuntu.. that made me think "wtf". However, on the back of my mouse is a switch for 1000hz and one for 125hz. i just put that switch to 125hz and all is fine. maximal cpu usage at xorg droped down to 8%15:06
=== faz_ is now known as faz_meeting
arkanabardualbootah, also, search "Linux" and "Wine" at wowhead and wowwik15:07
wolsTitanoboa4: finish the install and come back with the live cd. we can then (hopefully) fix your bootloader15:07
Titanoboa4okay15:07
Titanoboa4will do15:07
aetasthrillERboy, ls /boot15:07
wdpaetas, and im still able to set the hz value in linux manually. No idea whether the mouse uses it, tho.15:07
gribouillewols, the installed packages are: nvidia-173-modaliases, nvidia-96-modaliases, nvidia-common, nvidia-current, nvidia-current-modaliases, nvidia-kernel-common and nvidia-settings15:07
dualbootahi found a perfect link15:07
dualbootahty15:07
wdpaetas, wols so basically.. even if it sounds totally weird, it was the mouse/usb's fault.15:07
arkanabardualbootah, one more thing, check out WoW in appdb.winehq.org15:07
wolsgribouille: what does Xorg.0.log say?15:07
aetaswdp, thats what I was thinking.  only reason I ran into this is because I have one too and I've had to change the windows polling rate for other mice in the past15:08
wdpthats quite weird, isn't it :>15:08
thrillERboyaetas: ls /boot returns a empty line :(15:08
Titanoboa4*arnold voice* i'll be back15:08
wolswdp: no. it's the usb/mouse driver's fault imho15:08
aetasyou should be able to change the usb polling rate from the computer and override the mouse's though15:08
aetasthrillERboy, well thats a good sign15:08
aetasthrillERboy, hrm15:08
wdpyup did that. seems to work, and cpu usage is still at 5% when moving. So i guess theres something wrong with the driver or the mouse.15:09
aetasthrillERboy, can you run fdisk from within there?15:09
Rothamd/j #mises15:09
gribouillewols, a lot: it is 286 lines long15:09

yyI have a question.. What can I do to restore deleted files on ext3 partition? I know the file name (nohup.out) and some of its content15:09
thrillERboyunknown command: fdisk15:09
aetasit can happen on any mice if they change the mouse poll rate, you can do it on normal mice too15:10
wdpjust difficult to realize that. you're looking for a problem with xorg (your GRAPHICAL stuff) and it turns out it was the mouse.15:10
thrillERboyaetas: unknown command fdisk :(15:10
gilrezI was wounding if anyone would be able to help me or point me in the right direction! I installed XAMPP and mysql will not start. Need help!15:10
wdphowever guys. Thanks a lot for your help. :)15:10
aetasthrillERboy, hold on a sec15:10
thrillERboy:)15:10
aetaswdp, np, glad you're fixed15:11
wolsgilrez: installing xampp was your first mistake. remove ALL of it. install apache, php5 and mysql from ubuntu repos15:11

moesianhis is it possible to remove the password prompt for a specific user? I want to remove the prompt for the postgres user15:14
mystiquebacool15:14
aetasthrillERboy, actually do "ls -l /"15:14
gribouillewols, what package should I install?15:15
wolskantor: check vsftpd config file if you can enable symlinks. tho they have been security holes in the past for ftp. do you REALLY need a ftp server? if so, what for?15:15
jaime_kantor hard links is posible, do you try make hard links in other filesystem ?15:15
mystiquebaaetas:  thanks again.  I'll try to install wine then15:15

aetasthrillERboy, meaning your drive is gone?15:19
aetasthrillERboy, you still have your image right?15:20
thrillERboyI only have that one file.15:20
aetasthrillERboy, what about in just ubuntu dir?15:20
thrillERboyaetas: It should have all files inside it I guess15:20
aetasthrillERboy, no it installs it into an image file15:20
gribouillewols, do you see anything?15:21
aetasthrillERboy, can you grab the working_wubildr files from this thread?  try those but backup your current ones too15:21
wolsgribouille: basically nvidia-current is installed and your glx module should be there fine. maybe reinstall it, apart from that I dunno15:21

gribouille/usr/lib32/nvidia-current/ is empty15:29
aetasthrillERboy, Im really sorry man but if you can't find your image which I hear should be in C:\ubuntu\disks then I think you're at a standstill.  I would try a Windows NTFS restore program to see if it can locate your disk files and restore them15:29
wolsgribouille: LANG=C <apt-get command to reinstall nvidia drivers>   that will give us english error messages15:30
szalgribouille: then you clearly did something wrong15:30
szalgribouille: e.g. not running w/ privileges (though that should've aborted earlier in the process)15:30
gribouilleszal, I just removed the package and reinstalled it15:31
thrillERboyOkey aetas Thanks, So my disk image should be inside C:\ubuntu\disks right?15:31
wolsgribouille: have you ever had drivers from nvidia.com installed?15:31
gribouillewols, I don't think so. why?15:31
szalgribouille: btw, what card are we talking about?15:32
aetasthrillERboy, yeah...your best bet is to try the NTFS restore which I have gotten to successfully restore files before, especially if its not been that long since it went missing.  after that do a chkdsk on that drive as well15:32

thrillERboyThanks a ton aetas. You're super helpful. I already have a few filerecovery programs on my desktop, will also try NTFS Restore. Thanks a ton. I can't thank you enough :)15:34
aetasthrillERboy, I wish I had a better answer for you but usually a bad restart doesn't do that much harm these days so I think a restoration will be successful atleast.  If it restores but doesn't boot, you can atleast pull the files out of it15:36
Olotilagoing through youtube atm, but any other sites/sources`?15:36
thrillERboyaetas: you means windows system restore?15:36
aetasthrillERboy, NTFS restore that image, then you can probably mount/open it with something and get your files even if it won't boot15:37
