CandlehawkHi, I have a slight issue. I am running xubuntu 11.10, and just realised I can not "su" as I wasn't able to set my root password on install. How do I find out what my root password is?00:39
flowerpotCandlehawk, use sudo00:39
zykotick9!root | Candlehawk00:40
ubottuCandlehawk: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:40
[deXter]lol @ ubottu00:40
flowerpotCandlehawk, if you really must set password for root then try using sudo passwd00:40
zykotick9!noroot | flowerpot00:41
ubottuflowerpot: We do not support setting a root password. You're free to do it on your own machine, but please don't offer instructions on how to set a root password or ask for help with setting it. See !root and !wfm for more information.00:41

P-JBasically, I've got an nVidia GeForce GTX 260 in this machine, and I can set up a spanned monitor setup no problems (using nvidia-settings). The problem occurs when I try to save the setting. It writes to the xorg.conf file and when I restart, I get loads of weirdness with the unity file browser and other stuff. Huge fonts, no windows decorations, and no icon images. Anyone know what I should do here? As long as I don't try to00:41
P-Jsave the settings (and re-do it each time I restart) it's fine.00:41

flowerpotzykotick9, that's all well and good, but it's like saying 'it is impossible to have sex; we do not speak of it' in a sex ed class00:41
flowerpotit would be preferable to explain that having a root password, while possible, is unnecessary, redundant, and undesired for security reasons00:42
Candlehawkflowerpot: I suppose in many situations that may be the case, I just like to have the option. Then again, I prefer aptitude over apt-get, so my opinion has strayed from Ubuntu before.00:44

escottsteve__, it would help to know what part is confusing you. the gui is very flexible. if you are confused by the unity gui then the instructions for starting a command would be different, but once you start the program the manual should be appropriate to follow01:01
ActionParsnipbarakisbrown: you can reinstall grub to the MBR using a chroot from the liveCD01:02

ThirtysixwayI have a wubi question.  Is there any way to run a windows script that will reboot the machine into wubi/ubuntu?01:57
ActionParsnipIHateHavingToReg: if you set the network to be bridged, it will get an IP from the LAN and will appear as a system on the network. You can then connect as if it were a real PC on your network01:57
benbloomso escott, I mv'd the .thunderbird dir, purged the thunderbird install and reinstalled it and the problem persists!01:58
IHateHavingToRegActionParsnip thanks, one more question - does a telnet server automatically start up?01:58
ThirtysixwayI mean I would imagine a very hacky script could be done to mess with the boot loader settings, just curious if there's any other way01:58
icerootIHateHavingToReg: is there a reason why you need a telnet-daemon?01:59
escottbenbloom, odd. sounds like a library issue but i dont know what one it would be01:59
ActionParsnipIHateHavingToReg: by default it will add to the startup and start after install.01:59

VexiantYo, does anyone know how to get Tor/Vidalia to pick up Chromium? It picks up Firefox, but even then, it will only work on Firefox if I change my proxy setting and make a system wide change. But still, it works on everything other than Chromium.02:15
=== DavyS|afk is now known as DavyS
BlueProtomanAnd things worked fine directly after installing Bumblebee.  It's only the past five days that I've been having trouble.02:15
VexiantNote: If I make a system wide change through Chromium :v02:15
ActionParsnipVexiant: set the proxy in chromiu manually02:16
dr_willisVexiant:  i dont recall needing to do a 'system wide change'  - each browser can have its own proxy setting. there some plugins for each to help manage the settings.02:16
VexiantI did put them in manually02:16
dr_willisI definatly wouldent want a 'system wide change' of my proxy settings...02:16
Nowayzthere is software to proxy anything02:16
_JohnIn "ls -l", does it tell you the size of the file in bits or bytes02:17
ubottuTor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl02:17
VexiantIf I do a system wide change via Chromium, it works on everything. But it still won't on Chromium :P02:17
ActionParsnip_John: or use:  du -h filename02:17
_JohnActionParsnip: Thanks02:17
dr_willisI think the term 'system wide change' is perhaps not being used correctly.. but i have to go to work now. :)02:17
NowayzI found it!02:17
Vexiantlet me see02:17
Nowayzcheck out proxychains, it is able to proxy any application using sockets02:18
Vexiantnope, I' mright02:18
Vexiantit is being used correctly02:18
* Bsims lols and considers writing a wrapper for my bash script in python as it has purty progress bars02:18
NowayzVexiant: proxychains should work02:18
Vexiantwhat's a proxychain?02:18
dr_willis!info proxychain02:18
ubottuPackage proxychain does not exist in oneiric02:18
Nowayzits software that lets you proxy any application02:18
VexiantAhh, I'll Google it02:19
Nowayzfor example you would use the command proxychain firefox02:19
Bsims_John: ls -lh02:19
Nowayzhttp://proxychains.sourceforge.net/ i think02:19
dr_willisTor works with a proxy anyway ;)  so not sure why you would need to use proxychains  with it.02:19
Nowayzif he wants to proxy any application using a socks4/5 proxy he would have to...02:20
diverdudeHow large is a single entry in a modern RAM block? Is it 1 byte?02:20
Nowayzyou cannot easily proxy ANY program using tor02:20
Nowayzor at least not that I know of02:20
dr_willisusing tor for some programs is  not a good idea.02:21
gryphus71like downloads ..02:21
krazedHmm, why are the seperators so ugly in gnome3?02:21
Bsimskrazed: wouldn't know I use gnome just long enough to install synaptic and then kde02:22
NowayzWHY use something complicated like squid when proxychain can easily encapsulate the sockets02:22
dr_willissquid can do it for your whole lan/coporation/whatever02:22
krazedBsims, well Unity isn't customizable enough... but KDE eh, hmmmm.02:22
Nowayzit's a caching proxy though not an actual socks proxy02:23
benbloomescott, I'm not sure how to install the old version of thunderbird do i use apt? or dpkg?02:23

dr_willis!pin | benbloom02:23
ubottubenbloom: pinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto02:23
dr_willisbenbloom:  if the old version is in the repos yu can 'pin' the old version and use it.02:24
escottbenbloom, you should be able to use either to install the *.deb but I usually would use dpkg02:24
benbloomk. thanks to you both dr_willis and escott02:24

Nowayzare you just trying to proxy02:51
j0eyfatonemy server is USA based, so yes :P02:51
Nowayzif your server is running linux you can easily ssh proxy02:52
j0eyfatoneyep, Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit02:52
Nowayzwhich is SSL encrypted obviously, and it should get you past any kind of internet filters02:52
NowayzCheck out SSH's -D switch02:52

DinoMuffinssh tunnels are the best thing ever02:53
NowayzSSH creates a socks proxy tunnel, and you can use proxychains to proxify any application you want02:53
j0eyfatonevia terminal on my iphone?02:54

Nowayzyeah since you're on a phone it would be a pain to try to get socks working most likely, unless you're a developer02:56
j0eyfatonenot in the least02:56
Nowayzyou would have to compile proxychains yourself02:57
Nowayzon your phone02:57
j0eyfatoneso is the VPN out of the picture or the socks, i'm unsure02:58
Nowayzsocks is pretty much out of the picture unless you can find an app that uses socks to act as a proxy for the phone02:58

etyrnalwhat do i need to do to get an ATI Radeon 7500 running GREAT under Ubunu 11.04 ?02:59

NowayzWithout learning everything from scratch...03:00
j0eyfatonei'm attempting to pinpoint if the problem is with my VPS or my router. hopefully i'll figure out the config for both soon03:00
Nowayzyour router most likely isn't the problem unless you mean a router in front of your VPS03:01
Nowayzif you have an option to install windows instead of linux I would do that on your server03:01

NowayzIIS is a pretty good webserver :\03:43

icerootNowayz: and offtopic here03:44
Nowayziceroot: lightpd03:44

Nowayzlightpd can handle a far larger load then apache, it's easy to setup, and it faster03:45

biffbaxterI'm good :-)04:34
OregonBlackadder: unless you want to block a large list of ip numbers04:35
Blackadderdoes firestarter require a graphic interface or could it be run directly from terminal04:35

Nach0zI mean really, I've got an AMD card. not even Nvidia. and nouveau is automagically installed here and I CANNOT remove it04:37
dr_willisNach0z:  i just blacklist them.04:38

olte1something is wrong :/04:38
Oregonevilaemon: thanks for telling me firestarter isn't maintained anymore...do you know what replaced it?04:39
evildaemonNo but seriously, I'm in 11.10, and my wireless will broadcast WLAN, but won't connect. I think I missed a package installing from mini.iso04:39

jody is there any way i can update xubuntu 10.04  to 11.10 using the command line in the terminal05:57
iceroot!upgrade | jody05:59
ubottujody: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade05:59
icerootjody: but you have to go 10.04 - 10.10 - 11.04 - 11.1005:59
jodyyeah i have xbuntu 10.o405:59
jody10.04 lol05:59
TheYsNoijody: it's better a fresh install06:00
icerootjody: there is no reason to do a fresh install, just update your system06:01
icerootjody: of course its always a good idea to have a backup06:01
icerootjody: not only for an upgrade06:01
_rahmat_acerimer : thanks for your suggestion. I have reboot my ubuntu 10.04, login using different username. But still, no sound come out from my laptop. Any idea? Is there any configuration files for speaker, so I can delete it, and let my ubuntu recreate it? Thanks06:02
iceroot_rahmat_: nothing muted in "alsamixer"?06:02
acerimmer_rahmat_: yeah, deleting the config files is the final option.06:04
jody ive been intrested in linux for a  very long time and now linux is the only linux  and anything ubuntu is  the only ones i will use now06:04
_rahmat_acerimer : no. Here is screenshot of my alsamixer http://paste.ubuntu.com/826041/06:04
iceroot_rahmat_: also nothing muted in "pavucontrol"?06:05
_rahmat_acerimer : what is pavucontrol?06:05
iceroot_rahmat_: volume control for pulse-audio06:06
acerimmer_rahmat_: pulseaudio the other audio control in ubuntu06:06
_rahmat_acerimer : no06:07
acerimmer_rahmat_: also check your profile under sound preferences.  For instance, if it's set to 5 speaker surround but you've only stereo headphones it might just do what you're (not) hearing06:08

Blue1the less option just cleares the screen displays the ntpdate ouput at top and hangs06:45

ritzProGimp, Ubuntu might have gui for this - palimpsest08:34

ProGimpOK actually I have a plann deleting my previous partition where i have installed my Window 7, I thought i after installing Ubuntu 11.10. I can view the partition drive that's why i never care wiping it out while in process installing UBuntu. Now I have successfully installed Ubuntu, I want to view all the partitions so i can save some other files and keep them. After keeping it, i want to delet08:35
ProGimpit after. Is it possible that there is a way that i can view it of some tools in Ubuntu? Or can download some tool that i can manage it to view and delet. ?08:35
ServerSageiToast: No, it's a different question.  Either way, how did you create the USB stick?08:35
auronandaceProGimp: yes, mount the partition and copy the files08:36
iToastServerSage, Its the same question becuase its the same issue really..08:36
ritzProGimp, try running  palimpsest08:36
iToastAlso, i used unetbootin08:36
auronandaceritz: why not just use the file manager?08:36
ProGimpI don't know how to use that08:36
ritzauronandace, not sure, if the partition is mounted08:37
ProGimpCan file manager view the partition?08:37
iToastProGimp, yes08:37
auronandaceProGimp: yes it should08:37
ProGimpcan delet it too?08:37
iToastIf its mounted, it will show it as a HDD08:37
ProGimpHow about NTFS08:37
ritzProGimp, assuming it is mounted or you have the permission to mount08:37
iToastProGimp, yea...08:37
auronandaceProGimp: gparted can delete it, but first you need to mount it and copy what you want off it08:37
ritzfile manager does not care about NTFS, this is managed by the OS08:37

auronandaceProGimp: go to /media/ in the file manager08:40
iToastProGimp, The file manager can get hose off.08:40
iToastgpart will remove the partition08:40
auronandaceProGimp: your partition should be listed there08:40
ServerSageiToast: Have you tried 11.10 by chance?  Just curious if it does the same thing.  I"m guessing it just doesn't like your USB stick.  I had to try a few before I found one that worked.08:40

JjonThe instructions on the website state that you can, and I remember doing it before, I had to download some stuff for the archive manager with the terminal?09:53
varikonniemiok, that dd /dev/urandom write is way too slow for being usable09:53
ServerSageJjon: I think api files are just zip files with an xpi extension (as long as they aren't java packages).09:53
ServerSagevarikonniemi: Wiping a drive bit by bit is going to be slow.09:53
varikonniemiyeah it does 9.xM, dev/zero does 119M09:54

ServerSagedagerik: Or, you can alias sudo like so:  alias sudo='sudo '10:02
ServerSagedagerik: Though I do not know the security ramifications of doing so.10:02
JjonShould I run a firewall, or is it not too needed?10:03
bc81nevermind, i figured it out: http://wp.shaibn.com/how-to-help-zenity-to-get-focus-and-be-always-on-top10:03
ServerSagedagerik: The aliases need to be available to the user running the make files.  If they are using sudo, then you need to make the aliases available to root.  Using the "alias sudo='sudo ' above will accomplish this.10:04
dagerikServerSage: I am using an alias called alert, in my make file. But it will not run: alert lolzzzz # gcc -Wall hello.c -o hello10:06

GNOME 3 is not supported under Natty/11.04, and may break your system if installed from alternate sources.11:42
dr_willisthey really should make that cog more obvious. 90% of the login screen is just empty space11:42
bonhoefferi can't remove my ssh identity with ssh-add -d11:43
dr_willisif you want gnome shell you definatly want the latest ubuntu.11:43
solofightdr_willis, so a dist upgrade will do ?11:44
bonhoefferi get Identity removed: ../../id_rsa but it is still there11:44
bonhoefferis there a better room for ssh questions?11:44
dr_willis i akways do a clean install solofight11:45
solofightdr_willis, you mean you delete the existing and install from the new image ? ! ! !  WHat about all your softwares, documents and other stuff ?11:45
dr_willissolofight:  you can upgrade to the later releases11:45
dr_willissolofight: mt /home is on its own partition11:46
justin______yes a clean install is more stable11:46
dr_willistrivial foe me to do a clean install11:46
justin______dr_willis, ur /home is on its own partition? are u kidding, how do u pull that off? lol11:46
dr_willistakes about an hr11:46
justin______i never even thought of that :)11:47
justin______and what about reinstalling11:47
justin______u have to do it per install?11:47
dr_willismy home is actually on its own 3tb hd.11:47
justin______per clean install?11:47
justin______yeah i figured u'd throw it on your own drive11:47
justin______its quite genious in some ways actually11:47
dr_willishome on its iwn part. is commonplace11:47
solofightdr_willis, not that technically knowledgeable i am - can you please explain more ? if i copy the entiire /home from here and paste it after installing new version - then i get back all my stuff ?11:47
ubottuYour home directory is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home directory to a separate partition, please see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving11:47
solofightdr_willis, what about installed softwares ? i have so much stuff distributed like in /var/ and /opt/ ...etc11:48
solofighthow do i get them up together ?11:48
dr_willisi just  tell the installer where my home is at. and to not format it. rather trivial to do11:49
dr_willissolofight: what stuff exactly11:49
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate11:49
solofightdr_willis, developed web applications which are at /var11:50
solofightand tools like jmeter at /opt11:50
dr_willisback it up. restore11:50
solofighthow do i back up apache, mysql, ..etc ?11:51
solofightall seperately ?11:51
ikoniasolofight: the content or the applications ?11:51
dr_willisyou coult put /opt on its own part. :-)11:51
solofightikonia, both11:51
icerootsolofight: mysql with mysqldump, apache with a backup of your files e.g. in /var/www/11:51
ikoniasolofight: well, I don't see ap oint in backing up the actual applications11:51
dr_willisno ned tobackup the apps.11:51
solofighticeroot, configurations11:51
dr_willisreinstall them11:51
ikoniasolofight: but the content just tar up the content and mysqldump as iceroot said the databases11:51
solofightdr_willis, ouch reinstall all apps !11:52
icerootsolofight: /etc/mysql/my.cnf and /etc/apache2/*11:52
solofightwhy do you people say fresh install is better ?11:52
dr_willissolofight:  trivial for me . see that !clone factoid11:52
icerootsolofight: only some do, fresh install is not needed if you want a newer ubuntu version11:52
dr_willisi see too many upgrade ussues in here daily..11:53
icerootsolofight: but a backup is always a good idea (not only for upgrade)11:53
NaeblisHi. It seems Ubuntu has stopped recognizing my router and sound cards. I had recently updated using a new sources.list that someone here provided me(mine had security disabled, I think). Any ideas?11:53
icerootdr_willis: mostly because they do strange ppa stuff on there system11:53
solofightdr_willis, yeah saw that - but too complex to understand for me :(11:53
icerootdr_willis: default systems should not have issues on upgrade (its tested during an alpha/beta phase)11:53
dr_willisi beta test a LOT. so a clean install helps me clean house also11:54
icerootdr_willis: thats correct11:54
solofightdr_willis, can you please exaplin the !clone factiod ?11:54
icerooti guess my systems is gone from 10.04 to 12.04 though every release11:55
S-Iwinning streak :D11:55
dr_willissolofight:  it makes a file list of your instslled apps you reinstall from11:55
icerootS-I: no need that here11:55
RadiumCathello, i'm looking for an image viewer that has the ability to fetch image from a direct URL link to the image, instead of opening the browser everytime someone posts an image link on IRC. is there any such tool out there? :)11:55
icerootRadiumCat: shotwell can do that (imo) but its not primary a viewer, more of a collection11:56
dr_willisRadiumCat:  script one in your irc client. :-)11:56
RadiumCaticeroot: thanks kindly :)11:56
RadiumCatdr_willis: i use weechat :p11:56
dr_willisshouldbe easy then11:57
icerootthen you love the shell and scripting :)11:57
RadiumCatindeed :)11:57
dr_willisthe tinyurl scripts for weechat maybe a good starting point11:58
RadiumCatinteresting, i think i have it installed11:58
RadiumCatwill have a look11:58
dr_willisi use weechat but dont code mych11:59

mehrdadgive me a solution12:03
oCeanmehrdad: I don't think that attitude is going to help you here12:04
dr_willislearn to save every 5 min12:04
mehrdadthe piece of shit terminal has no save feature12:04
mehrdadok politeness?12:04
dr_williswonder what he lost then...12:05
mehrdadok the terminal lost all the history12:05
mehrdadwhat do i do?12:05
dr_willisyou mean your bash history?12:05
mehrdadit was important enough anyway for me to rage out12:05
mehrdadyes bash12:05
mehrdadit crashed and everything went away on the terminal12:06
cromagso when you write "history" everything is gone ?12:06
mehrdadhow can i get it back politely?12:06
dr_willisits in ram untill bash exits and saves it to disk i think12:06
mehrdadheh awesome then12:06
Naeblisso uhh, I'll try again.12:06
NaeblisHi. It seems Ubuntu has stopped recognizing my router and sound cards. I had recently updated using a new sources.list that someone here provided me(mine had security disabled, I think). Any ideas?12:06
dr_willisbe carefull when running several terminals also12:07
dr_willishistory file is shared i recall12:07

iceroot!work | bonhoeffer12:11

bonhoefferssh-add -D reports: All identities removed. ssh-add -l shows all identities still there, iceroot12:12

bluenemohi guys, i've just installed gfxboot but i cant find the executable.. its not in path and wont show up on locate (after updatedb)..12:15
oCeanEdwardIII: next april release Precise/12.04 will be LTS12:15
mehrdadwhere is the firewall log saved? :/;12:16

EdwardIIIwhat's the general feeling about ubuntu LTS on a server?12:19
mehrdadscruff: file name?12:20
icerootEdwardIII: if you want ubuntu then lts is the best for a server12:20
oCeanEdwardIII: LTS in server edition comes with 5 years of support12:20
fidelEdwardIII: works fine here12:20
oCeanEdwardIII: specific server support/discussion is in channel #ubuntu-server though12:20
icerootEdwardIII: if you want a ultra-stable system (with older software) i guess having a look at debian stable is a good idea too12:20
EdwardIIIah OK12:20
EdwardIIIwell i want something with at least python 2.7 out of the box12:20

mehrdadnooo :(12:23
icerootEdwardIII: 12.04 is the next lts release, ready in april 201212:24
icerootEdwardIII: on a server (reachable through the internet) i would suggest only use ubuntu lts or debian stable12:24
mehrdadso i am screwed :|12:24
Chotaz_No SSL on ubuntu's website?12:25

mehrdadoCean: no chance the ip is saved somewhere?12:25
crizzywaste of bandwidth, browsers don't cache items over ssl12:25
MerlynKorrcan a person install debian onto a usb stick and have it install on the computer it was downloaded from?12:25
icerootChotaz_: you only need ssl if you have logins like the ubuntu forums, launchpad and so on12:26

krisediceroot hy man. Thanks for all your help the past days. i FINALLY found the problem. or rather a solution.. ive been removing lightDm for GDM but that made my remastersys crash. However keeping LightDM works perfectly12:26
oCeanmehrdad: you are looking for an ipaddress you used in a command earlier? If you lost your command history, there's no other record of it12:26
icerootkrised: nice to hear12:26
MerlynKorrty iceroot.12:26
MerlynKorras well, i had a problem that was assisted by one of you guys and i wanted to thank you all and recognize for that assistance so, thanks...12:28
MerlynKorrit was really appreciated...12:29
MerlynKorrsee ya guys.12:30
krisediceroot uhmm i know its more a #bash question but do you know how to direct keyboard input into a variable ? im listing some options in a script and the user has to pick from 1-9 and i need to have that input select an options based on number.12:31
EdwardIIIi've mostly used centos before, but it's a pain - i always have to compile a custom perl and a custom python12:32
EdwardIIIbecause the packages are just so damn old12:32

bytesofbinaryI haven't run my computer for 3 days. And now after I boot up, Ubuntu has become very slow due to no reason and Fedora doesn't boot?12:41
justin______bytesofbinary, sounds like it could be a hard drive problem,12:42
theadminbytesofbinary: Damaged hard drive?12:42
justin______3 days non use, corrosion, dust, keep it on12:42
bytesofbinaryHow do I know if its a damaged hard drive? Its not giving the disk fail warning12:42
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - define doesn't boot12:43
ikoniabytesofbinary: you need to give us info12:43
mehrdadrun Windows for the same time period byoungmn12:43
mehrdadsorry bytesofbinary12:43
justin______u could run an fsck12:43
ikoniajustin______: why - what will that do for him ?12:43
CuliforgeI installed a Geforce 8400gs and now my 10.04 won't boot, is there any wisdom here?12:44
justin______check and repair the linux file system12:44
justin______if needed12:44
ikoniajustin______: who says it's got a problem ?12:44
justin______plus the heads will clean the dirt off a bit12:44
bytesofbinaryI checked the fedora filesystem and it says clean12:44
ikoniajustin______: it's performing "slow" and Fedora won't boot12:44
ikoniabytesofbinary: what's the actual issue12:44
bytesofbinaryikonia: doesn't boot means it gets stuck at the "F" boot screen12:44
theadminjustin______: ikonia is right, there is absolutely no reason for fsck'ing the drive if it boots... Speed has nothing to do with filesystem sanity at all12:44
justin______there's no diagnosis yet, this is just a try12:45
ikoniabytesofbinary: turn off the boot splash and see what's going on12:45
justin______for the fedora machine its possible12:45
justin______fedora partition12:45
ikoniajustin______: trying random things for no reason is not how to resolve an issue12:45
bytesofbinaryikonia: everything goes fine as expected, and when its supposed to display gdm, it says something about about virtualbox kernel modules succesfully loaded and just sits there12:46
justin______educated guess ykno12:46
justin______its got me out of hot spots12:46
justin______just sayin12:46
ikoniajustin______: no it didn't12:46
ikoniajustin______: he's explained the problem - fsck will do nothing12:46
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - and what about the ubuntu boot ?12:46
theadminbytesofbinary: Virtualbox? Are you running it in virutalbox?12:46
justin______alright, sorry matt12:47
bytesofbinaryikonia: ubuntu boot goes well, but its become very VERY slow, like when I run sudo apt-get update. It takes 20 mins to finish updating a SINGLE package12:47
bytesofbinarytheadmin: No. I have Vbox installed12:47
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok, we need to sort your definitions out12:47
leifwwhat debugging or logging things can I install or enable to diagnose random lockups/crashes?12:48
theadminbytesofbinary: Is everything slow, or just APT?12:48
ikoniabytesofbinary: 1.) "slow" needs to be explained, is it network slow, slow moving the mouse around, slow to process tasks ?12:48
leifwthat is, entire system lockups/crashes12:48
quiescensif you suspect drive failure or near failure you could boot a livecd and check the drive's SMART readings, but they may or may not indicate anything useful (rather, if it says bad things then it probably could be drive related, but if it doesn't, it doesn't neccesarily mean it isn't drive related)12:48
* quiescens shrugs.12:48
bytesofbinaryikonia: slow means slow processing tasks.12:48

mehrdadyou said no to my question12:54
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - great, so now you know where you are looking12:54
ikoniabytesofbinary: I want you to run update-manager as you did earlier, and watch what happens12:54
ikoniabytesofbinary: there will be a little spike of activity, so don't worry, but does anything go high and stay high for a long period of time12:55
bytesofbinaryikonia: okay. let me check12:55

bytesofbinaryikonia:cpu was ~6%12:57
mehrdadanybody else notices this?12:57
kwtm2quiescens: Thx. WIll try.12:57
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - so looking at that your machine is not stressed, it's not hanging on an open process that's eating resources, nothing like this12:57
ikoniabytesofbinary: agree based on what you've just shown me ?12:57
bytesofbinaryikonia: well, yes.12:57
S-Iit doesnt matter how many dragons you kill it matters who brings home the princess12:58
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - so the next line of thinking is the visual graphics performance is poor, this can be caused by a badly configured video card.12:58
ikoniabytesofbinary: a lot of time the desktop seems to respond slow, and it's fine, but the video drawing is poor making it look like the machine is lagging12:58
ikoniabytesofbinary: understand ?12:58
ubukoudoes anyone have any idea about theming ubuntu ?12:58
bytesofbinaryikonia: oh. I get it.12:58
ikoniabytesofbinary: so it looks like it's running slow, slow to respond to mouse clicks etc etc, but actually it's fine, it's just slow video drawing/interaction12:59
ikoniabytesofbinary: what video card do you have in the machine ?12:59

bytesofbinaryikonia: didn't have this problem earlier. But when I go to system info on ubuntu. it says graphics unknown, while GNOME3 fedora showed intel g33 when it used to boot13:01
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok - I'm not sweating too hard on that, but lets try a few things13:01
ikoniabytesofbinary: do you have a file called xorg.conf in the directory /etc/X11 ?13:01
bytesofbinaryikonia: apparently, I don't13:02
ikoniabytesofbinary: thats ok13:03
ikoniabytesofbinary: I didn't expect you to have one13:03
ubukoui recolored gtk but emesene still has the same colors ... interestingly enough the background changes colors but the font stayed the same..anyone expirienced in here to lend me a hand?13:03
bytesofbinaryikonia: oh13:03
ikoniabytesofbinary: what I think is worth trying here, is forcing your xorg to use the "intel" xorg driver13:03
ikoniabytesofbinary: agree ?13:03
bytesofbinaryikonia: yes.13:03
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok, now we have to generate an xorg.conf with a minimal set of details (anything that's missing xorg auto configures/detects, that's why you've not got a file)13:04
ikoniabytesofbinary: we just want to force the hardcoding of video cards xorg driver, understand ?13:04
bytesofbinaryikonia: yes, okay.13:04
ubukouanyone using emesene ?13:05
ikoniabytesofbinary: ok, I'm going to pastebin a file (may need a few goes at this as I'm a bit rusty) that should hoepfully by enough to get your card running13:05

Steamopunkquiescens - http://paste.ubuntu.com/826384/ That's the only thing that came up from the command, and that looks like it's actually on a different port13:48
JonathanEllisiceroot: Cool. Thanks. Unfortunately both my monitors are vga only but at least I know the right direction to start looking13:48
quiescensSteamopunk: then its most likely that mysql is failing to bind the port because the port is <1024 and it drops its root permissions prior to binding its port13:49
Steamopunkquiescens - Alright, so it has to be 1024+?13:49
icerootJonathanEllis: there are vga-dvi adapters13:49

a931bwHello everybody, i want to make bootable USB flash of windows xp, how do i do that from ubuntu>13:50
quiescensSteamopunk: you will either have to use a port above 1024 or if that isn't an option, you can tell mysql to use a port above 1024 and just use iptables to forward your port 21 to whatever port you tell mysql to use13:50
a931bwdd didn't wor13:50

iceroota931bw: i dont know maybe the usb creator from ubuntu can do that13:52
JonathanEllisiceroot: I can imagine USB speed might be a problem there. Also I imagine it would simply replicate the screen and external vga port which would only give 2 independent displays?13:52

denstarkHello! I'm on maverick and upgraded libglib to a version from a ppa, but it broke some of my programs. Trying to revert (using sudo aptitude install libglib2.0-0=2.26.0-0ubuntu1) wants me to remove ubuntu-desktop and some other very important packages.. any way to force the downgrade while not removing those packages?14:55

willdabeastThis question doesn't necessarily have to do with Ubuntu, but my computer is freezing after being on it for a few hours. I know it's not the power supply... anything else it could be?14:55
ikoniadenstark: game over14:55
ikoniadenstark: updating glibc is a very very bad idea, especially from an unknown PPA14:55
ikoniawilldabeast: ram, use memtest to test it for 24 hours see what comes up14:56
ikoniabetimig: boot into recovery mode then type "init 2" and watch what happens on the screen14:56
willdabeastikonia alright thanks, could memtest fix it? or just find out what's wrong with it.14:56

ikoniafrybye: disale the onboard in the bios15:59

Guest1152Heya, I'm moderatly new to C++ development, moderatly being well versed in the logic, there's no way I can sum it up in a sentence, but the problem I have is the gulf between "Hello world" and managing includes, so far no include statements (from example gtkmm code) work, I don't want a magic fix, is there any documentation on how a "UNIX dev. enviroment" is set up and works?15:59
ikoniaGuest1152: the best thing is to chat in ##c++ and ##c channels16:00
Guest1152I'd like to know how to manage it myself, than just "stick this here and hope for the best" I want to read, but I don't even know what t google16:00

ericusI'm running 10.04, with 2.6.35 kernel to get TRIM working with SSD16:02
Kartagisbullgard4: I've been using ubuntu since Heron, and I'm still amazable16:02
Tellmarchericus, i personnally run a 3.2 kernel (because previous kernels wouldn't work properly with my hardware), i have no problems. just follow the correct procedure.16:02
ericusand now I want to update to 3.3 rc216:02
ikoniaericus: why ?16:03
free-tpbCan i ask ubuntu-server related questions here? I need to know the best way to block someone16:03
ikoniafree-tpb: sure16:03
ikoniafree-tpb: also #ubuntu-server16:03
ericusTellmarch: Sorry to bother you, but I don't know how to install the 3.3 rc216:03
ericusI've read your link16:03
ikoniaericus: why do you want to, what "extra" do you think you'll get ?16:04
DinoMuffinfree-tpb: what do you mean by "block someone"?16:04
=== Guest1152 is now known as HavokDelta6
Tellmarchericus, have you downloaded the correct header and image .deb from the ppa?16:04
Kartagisfree-tpb: block by IP? use /etc/hosts.deny16:04
DrCodehi all16:05
ericusikonia: I dont know, some things must have improved over two years?16:05
Tellmarchericus, oh sorry, i didn't realise you were still in 10.0416:05
DrCodeI have windows 7 on my new laptop , I want to backup it and install fresh ubuntu , then I want to restore the win7 image into virtualbox, any idea , tools?16:05
ikoniaericus: not always, as you're not using an operating system designed around using those compopnents16:05
free-tpbWell i have been getting a lot of hits from bots looking for phpmyadmin, proxyheader.php, ext how can i report them before i block them, i would like to build a black list before i block them16:06
icerootDrCode: ##windows16:06
ericusSo your advice would be to stay on 2.6.35-32-generic?16:06
icerootDrCode: but normally dd should work16:06
Tellmarchericus : if you don't have a *need* of a newer kernel, don't risk it with such an old distribution.16:06
ericusOkay Tellmarch16:07
ikoniafree-tpb: badbots rules on fail2ban16:07
ericusTellmarch and ikonia, I went from 2.6.32 to 2.6.35 today, to get TRIM on SSD working. Was that a bad idea?16:08
Tellmarch2.6.35 is released for 10.04, so that's ok16:08
ikoniaericus: that's fine if you're working, leave it be16:08

ikoniaericus: ok, so there is no need to update again16:09
ericusso 2.6.35-32-generic is still secure?16:09
ikoniaericus: unless you have a reason to16:09
ikoniaericus: secure ?16:09
cloudgeekor donwlaod link for youtube plugin for banshee16:09
Tellmarchericus, for further updates wait until 12.04 is out in a few months16:09
ericusno known vurnerabilities?16:09
ericusTellmarch: I'd like to stay on 10.04 on my netbook16:09
icerootericus: if you are using a normal ubuntu kernel everything is fine with the security16:10
icerootnormal = comming from ubuntu and not a ppa/build by yoursef16:10
ericusThank you all for answering my noob-questions16:11
Tellmarchericus, there was a security flaw in linux kernels released recently, but i think it was only from 2.6.39, so you should be fine.16:11
cloudgeekyoutube plugin for banshee is any ?16:11
dak0I heart theres youtube plugin for SMplayer16:11
PiciTellmarch, ericus: 10.04 is still supported, so any kernel security updates would have been presented.16:12
TellmarchPici, he hasn't the "normal" 10.04 kernel16:12
Tellmarchwhich is still 2.6.3216:12
icerootTellmarch: there was a newer kernel backported for 10.04 which is in the normal main-repo16:13
icerootTellmarch: that is common for lts to have 2 kernels after some time16:13
ericusI used a backport from karmic16:13
Piciericus: Are you sure that you are running 10.04?  Is that what lsb_release -r  says?16:13
icerootericus: how you used the backport?16:13
bullgard4cloudgeek: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/03/banshee-155-released-with-grid-view.html16:13

Slartericus: BIOS batteries has a tendency to go bad with age, in my experience.. they just won't hold a charge any more. I think it's meant to be loaded whenever there is power to the system16:34
ericusSlart: Yeah, I'm guessing it's bad16:35

Aklsericus, I think it should work this way by default. but I can be wrong17:26
ericusOn my gateway, runs ClearOS, but I assume it's pretty much the same17:27
scwizardI thought mint was popular, but there's no real support channel for it :(17:27
_NiCericus, I guess you can only allow login with keys, and specify a source ip for the key you add.17:28
_NiCericus, it'll still be technically open for anything as long as you have the key though.17:28
llutzericus: sshd_conf "AllowUsers root@192.168.x.y"17:28
zykotick9scwizard: did you see the !mint factoid, it has the irc network channel listed "/msg ubottu mint" if not.17:29
kapzhello! I need to know how the startx is executed at boot time in ubuntu 11.10? I have to add a prefix to it...thanks17:29
_NiCericus, or do what llutz says, which is much smarter. :-)17:29
Tom22Does anyone know where my config files for modules is?17:29
zykotick9Tom22: to load them?  see /etc/modules17:30
_NiCllutz, ericus, however .. isn't anything else then rejected, even other usernames?17:30
ericusthanks llutz :)17:30
llutzericus: but i'd always use PermitRootLogin forced-commands-only" and use su/sudo17:30
llutz_NiC: yes, you have to specify ALL valid users then17:30
ericusThing is, I have two users on the server. Root and me.17:30
kapzI mean where to look for the file where I can find startx while the OS boots...?17:30
_NiCericus, well, in that case, adding all the users isn't a big hassle.. :)17:31
ericusI want to be able to login as root only from my LAN, and disalbe su for the other user17:31
llutzericus: root should have an unprilegded accoutn to login too17:31
zykotick9kapz: startx isn't executed really, DM looks after starting xorg.17:31
ericusllutz: it's not ubuntu, but ClearOS17:31
|DM|zykotick9: no I don't.17:31
llutzericus: and? su/sudo works on every linux when installed17:32
Tom22@ zykotick9 thank you :), is it normal for this file to be empy. AKA, the file existes (theres commented text), but no modules are specified.17:32
kapzoh in that case where to llok for DM execute command?17:32
|DM|I don't even know what DM is17:32
zykotick9Tom22: by default it's empty ya17:32
ericusllutz: but there must be some way to disable su for my regular user?17:32
llutzericus: just don't give him the root-password17:32
ericusand also chroot that user to it's /home17:32
supNowI'm having issues accessing my home folder (local machine) from my home computer via remote connection from local machine to home. It used to automount a drive to my home computer after connecting, but doesn't any longer. I may have accidentally disabled a service? Can anyone help?17:32
zykotick9kapz: it's started by upstart, look at /etc/init/ directory17:32

nsd_I'm having some issues getting public key authentication to work with an openssh server. I have not edited /etc/sshd_config from the default, although I have checked and the AuthorizedKeysFile and PubKeyAuthentication appear properly set. I have the public key that I would like to use in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the remote machine, but I am not prompted for a passphrase. Anyone know their way around ssh that could help me?17:33
nsd_I should note that when I say I am not prompted for a passphrase, I mean it asks for a password, which evidently is not what I am supposed to see.17:33
=== grubby is now known as Guest36209
llutzericus: there are lots of tutorials how to chroot users into $HOME using ssh or rbash17:33
AklsVako maybe you should try backtrack channel17:33
DinoMuffinnsd_: are you trying to use private key authentication/17:33
ericusllutz: the other user is me, so i know the password..17:34
nsd_DinoMuffin: Yes.17:34
DinoMuffinnsd_: did you generate the RSA keys?17:34
azmodeushi guys... does anybody knows where can I find some documentation over backtrack?17:34
ericustwo users, root and ericus17:34
llutzericus: that makes no sense17:34
tomreynnsd_: if you can watch auth.log on the remote machine you're trying to authenticate to.17:34
ericusbut I want to disable su for ericus17:34
nsd_DinoMuffin: Yes, and I copied the contents of the public key to the authorized_keys file on the remote machine17:34
llutzericus: just don't use su then, why would you disable it17:34
nsd_tomreyn: I will try that.17:34
icerootericus: there is no reason to disable su17:34
DinoMuffinnsd_: make sure the file permissions are correct17:34
ericusllutz: to make it more secure when opening ssh17:35
icerootericus: if i know the password of the user i dont need su, i just need ssh user@host or tty1 loginprompt17:35
nsd_DinoMuffin: What do they need to be set to? As of right now I have u=r,og=r17:35
llutzericus: how would that be more secure?17:35
tomreynnsd_: a common mistake is not to set the permissions on ~/.ssh/authorized_keys properly (only the owning user should be able to read and optionally write to it), as are spelling mistakes on the filename17:35
DinoMuffinnsd_: I believe it should be chmod'd to 40017:35
kapzzykotick9: thanks! I opened lightdm.conf but I am unable to make out anything...all I want to do is start Xorg/gnome session with 'optirun' command prefixed...how do I do that?17:35
DinoMuffinnsd_: let me verify that17:35
ericusiceroot: root login is not allowed on the server17:35
icerootericus: su is not only for root17:35
llutzericus: su needs the root-password. so if your account get hacked, the intruder has to know the root-pw too17:36
icerootericus: what about sudo -i17:36
nsd_DinoMuffin: I don't know the what the octal values correspond to off the top of my head.17:36
zykotick9kapz: sorry i have no idea how you'd do that.  or what optirun is for that matter.  best of luck.17:36
icerootericus: now i have a rootshell doesnt matter if you disabled su17:36
ericuslet me explain17:36
icerootericus: no need to explain17:36
DinoMuffinnsd_: it should be -r--------17:36
supNowI'm having issues accessing my home folder (local machine) from my home computer via remote connection from local machine to home. It used to automount a drive to my home computer after connecting, but doesn't any longer. I may have accidentally disabled a service? Can anyone help?17:36
nsd_DinoMuffin: Also, the various tutorials I have found online seemed to vary with regards to how permissive or otherwise they were.17:36
icerootericus: disabling "su" is useless and i bet it will break some things17:36
DinoMuffinnsd_: or just run chmod 400 on the file17:36
tomreynnsd_: chmod u+r-wx,g-rwx,o-rwx ~/.ssh/authorized_keys17:36
zykotick9kapz: bumblebee, i see17:37
tomreynnsd_: or just 400 ;)17:37
kapzzykotick9: No worries mate, and thanks for all the help! btw optirun is used for running optimus card17:37
nsd_tomreyn: You know that can just be chmod u=rwx,og= right?17:37
ericusif i'd like to enable login as root only on LAN, and ssh for user ericus from external17:37

DinoMuffinnsd_: chmod 400 works fine on my debian server17:37
ericusi want to disable ericus to run su17:37
nsd_DinoMuffin, tomreyn: I will try that17:37
ericusthere is no need for that user to be superuser17:37
llutzericus:1st goal:  sshd_conf "AllowUsers root@192.168.x.y ericus"17:37

tomreynnsd_: "I have not edited /etc/sshd_config" wasn't entirely right then, hmm? ;)17:41

tomreynhi, i'm on ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric), with oneiric-proposed and xorg-edgers repositories activated, and having trouble running any virtual machines since the driver modules are not loaded, and may not have been built by dkms automatically.17:43

theadminModusPwnens: Simpliest for such tasks.17:45
icerootjonathon: only with your backup17:45

jonathoniceroot, and if I didn't make a backub?17:45
ModusPwnenstheadmin,  but what if I want to get it working with the update-rc.d method?17:45
icerootjonathon: then you know why a backup is important17:45
theadminModusPwnens: I don't think that even does anything with Upstart17:46
ModusPwnensI know Upstart is the newer method, but I thought that update-rc.d still worked17:46

Slarticeroot: hmm.. I'm trying to create a file with a linebreak in the name... none of the above has worked so far..but nevermind.. I'll play around with this. Thanks!18:03
icerootSlart: touch $'a\n' && ls | less18:04
icerootSlart: to see how ls is working when using a pipe18:04

azi_i've just set up some backup settings. is there a way to force the first backup to be made?18:04
icerootSlart: ls is very evil and its acting different if it found a terminal or a pipe18:04
icerootSlart: touch $'a\nb' && ls | less18:04
Slarticeroot: ahh.. it just does that when you use the pipe.. -1 doesn't help, it will still show as two lines18:05
icerootSlart: that will result in 2 lines18:05
jonathonHow can I edit what programs load up at start?18:05
imbezoliceroot: you are correct.. piping the ls into a file shows the line break18:05
icerootSlart: touch $'a\nb' && ls | wc -l   will show 218:05
Slarticeroot: so, ls *is* evil after all =)18:05
icerootSlart: as i said earlier18:05
sstawhy on earth would you put a line break in a filename?18:05
theadminYou're not listening to me, --escape unevilifies ls...18:05
icerootssta: because its allowed18:05
sstaiceroot: well, yes.  so are lots of things.  Doesn't make them a good idea18:06
icerootssta: why on earth would you put a white space in a filename?18:06
theadminssta: "not a good idea" doesn't mean that's not possible xD18:06
sstaiceroot: anyway, ls and wc are both performing as documented there18:06
sstaiceroot: I wouldn't18:06
jonathonHow can I edit what programs load up at start?18:06
theadminjonathon: Depends. GUI? CLI?18:07
jonathontheadmin, GUI Preferred, but CLI is fine18:07
theadminjonathon: I mean, do you want them to start-up when your desktop loads? Or do you mean daemons (Window$ term: Services)?18:07
icerootssta: and because there are strange specialcases there a good ways (for a in ./*) and bad ways (ls | do something)18:07
jonathonOh, Daemons18:08
theadminjonathon: I think there are a few, search the software center. I used to use rcconf, but there are reports that this stopped working. Not sure if so though.18:08
jonathonWhat would I search under?18:08
theadminjonathon: Eh, just type "daemon" or "service" in the search bar18:09
sstaiceroot: for x in... type constructs break on files with any whitespace...18:09
icerootssta: quote18:09
DinoMuffiniceroot: that's actaully pretty neat18:09
imbezoliceroot: so what's a portable way to do it? i doubt inotify is available on hpux and aix for example18:10
dijonyummyis there an csh debugger for ubuntu or linux18:10
zykotick9jonathon: you might want to try bum (i haven't used it, i still use rcconf but not sure you should use that in ubuntu)18:10
DinoMuffiniceroot: wonder if other flags can be injected18:10
T_H_Xw'sup with sookbook18:10
theadmindijonyummy: How on earth do you want to "debug" csh? It's a shell... Please rephrase.18:10
icerootssta: for a in ./* do echo "$a" done    there are never problems with white-spaces in $a when you use "$a"18:10
jonathonI found rcconf, I'll check out bum too18:10
ssta"Doctor, it hurts when I stab myself in the eye"...18:10
icerootimbezol: on every linux18:11
icerootimbezol: on every linux with 2.6.x if i am correct, 2.4 does not have inotify18:11
theadminiceroot: You say "2.6.x" as if you're forgetting we moved to 3.x for a while now xD18:12
iceroottheadmin: :)18:12
theadmin2.6.x or greater.18:12
iceroottheadmin: of course :)18:12
imbezoliceroot: not sure i catch your meaning. what's a portable way, 2.4, 2.6, commercial unix, etc..18:12
jonathonzykotick9, Alright, bum works, thanks18:12
theadminimbezol: If you want scripts to be THAT portable, you probably want to write them for original sh (or dash, as it's called now)18:13
MonkeyDustportable way? commercial unix?18:13
imbezoltheadmin: indeed18:13
icerootimbezol: find18:13
icerootimbezol: find foobar | wc -l18:14
imbezolfind has the same problem as ls if you just print18:14
imbezolnope, doesn't work.. does the same as ls18:14
icerootimbezol: not if using this print0 thing with xargs18:14
icerootcant remeber the syntax18:14

imbezol> find . -maxdepth 1 -name 'foo*' | wc -l   = 218:15
imbezolfind . -maxdepth 1 -name 'foo*' -print | wc -l   = 218:15
theadminGod, use 'find -fls' or 'ls --escape'. Now pkill argument.18:15
theadminWhat is with you people >.<18:15
iceroottheadmin: we are interestied in the topic18:15
jonathonOk now, Anyone know a good program to edit start up programs?18:15
iceroottheadmin: its not a bad idea to discuss solutions18:16
theadminiceroot: But those ways I suggest work and you're ignoring me altogether18:16
CarlFKtheadmin: xkcd/386 :)18:16
imbezoltheadmin: except that --escape is a gnu way18:16

ChaorainHey, I just installed ubuntu Tweak for 11.10 and I used to be able to install programs through it but now I can't. Is there any way to still do that? (It had more than th Software Center does)18:21
theadminChaorain: Do you mean adding third-party repositories? I don't think Ubuntu Tweak can, but you can manually search launchpad for the ones you need18:21
wutzebaer1is facebook down?18:21
Chaoraintheadmin: It used to be able. Thats always how I install Jdownloader.18:22

theadminiceroot: You *are* failing. Search for "-ls" in the manpage, followed by searching for "UNUSUAL FILENAMES" to see how it behaves with those.18:24
theadminI apologize for caps, but that's how it's written in the man18:25
iceroottheadmin: we are searching for something also working on non-gnu-systems18:25

theadminiceroot: You think that doesn't? I thought find is universal. But then again, I'm not so sure.18:25
iceroottheadmin: i just think i am bad and finding the right things in the manpage18:25
iceroottheadmin: i guess find can do it18:26
