Muskahi, having an issue with ubuntu hanging at init-bottom on boot.  how can I troubleshoot what is causing it to hang?00:07

MuskaGuinness2702, more trying to see what starts around the time init-bottom is executed so I can try to execute things one by one in a chroot environment or in single user to see what hangs and what doesn't00:08

LED1i think bunt is going in the right direction with unity although i hated it at first01:28
vbbhey you guys i need technical help here01:29
MarcoAcheronWhich do you guys prefer: Tor or Cocoon?01:30

appleguruhow can I setup a PPTP vpn server on ubuntu that passes broadcast traffic both ways?01:30
bazhangvbb, what irc client01:30
LED1all bunt distros work rigt if you have the right hardware thats all im saying, sometimes you just need an upgrade.01:31
vbbim using xchat-GNOME01:31
bazhangLED1, ok. please continue in #ubuntu-offtopic , thanks01:31
zykotick9_godhelpme: umask applies to all created files/folders.  It's a subtraction from full permission so a umask of 770 would be no permission for user/group and full permission for Other (probably NOT what you want)01:31

Tellmarchi copied about 50 GB of data to backup my 5GB home folder -_-01:35
Tellmarchbefore noticing it was copying in loops01:35
zykotick9Tellmarch: scp -r ?01:36
Tellmarchthat's what i did01:36
BsimsTellmarch: rsync is mostly the same thing, but if you are gonna do it more than once rsync is the way to go01:36
Tellmarchbut my problem is that scp -r didn't work well at all01:36

bitehisto: how can i force it to boot into linux first, then?02:07
flowerpotI notice that sshd has options like PasswordAuthentication in ssh_config that I can set to allow or deny password-based authentication.  However, I thought PAM could do this too?  I can't seem to find out how to tell sshd to use PAM...does sshd use it by default?02:07

bitehisto: should i remove some partitions then to make ubuntu boot first?02:08
bitehisto: i can probably merge data with the c:\ drive02:09

=== usr is now known as danes
histobite: If you install grub2 to the MBR of the drive02:10

bobbHello everyone, I'm having trouble installing a .iso file onto a usb flashdrive. I'm using the livecd's included software: Make Startup Disk. Right now, it will install Ubuntu 11.10i386, so I want to change it to Fedora. So I downloaded a Fedora livecd .iso, pressed the "Other..." button, selected a Fedora .iso, and confirm. But, it still is going to install Ubuntu, and not not Fedora. What do I do?03:20
mukaibotauk: just like Gmail03:20
aukThunderbird for Email is really nice. Check it out in Ubuntu's Software manager.            OR run this command: sudo apt-get install thunderbird03:20
aukmukaibot: I know to use hotmail is free. But it's not free to use inside thunderbird.03:21

Yourname`Hello. Does anyone have knowledge of AWstats and Webmin on Ubuntu? I get this error: The logfile analysis command /usr/local/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/awstats.pl was not found on your system. Maybe AWStats is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect - after installing awstats by webmin.03:22
bobbxangu: I'll try it out03:23
aukxangua: Ewww, I hate pop.            imap > pop...03:23
mukaibotselite: yeah, sounds like it is dead03:23
zykotick9!webmin | Yourname`03:23
ubottuYourname`: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.03:23

Yourname`zykotick9: Thanks03:24
aukI'm sure of it.03:24
aukOr at least think that's it.03:24
mukaibotselite: Don't try to repair it! They are dangerous!03:24
fellayaboyWhats the difference between vpn and ssh03:24
selitemukaibot: No, I just wanted to make sure. I will get a new one.03:24
aukBecause POP will send you all the emails, and then remove whatever you received from email server.03:24
nils_auk: don't be ridiculous. It doesn't run on real hardware, it's all in the cloud, dude.03:24
mukaibotselite: ok good!03:24

biteHow do i install java on linux?03:25
xanguathat option is by default also auk03:25
biteubuntu, to be specific.03:25
mukaibotfellayaboy: VPN connects you to a network (ie, you get an IP on that network), ssh is just a one-to-one connection between two devices. Both are encrypted03:25
Yourname`whoever: What log file?03:25
aukbite: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java             <---- There you go.03:25
bitethanks auk03:25
bitebut do i need the jdk or jre?03:26
xanguabite: you can install openjdk from repositories, i don¿t know if java is still on ubuntu repos; you can also download it from java.com and install it manually03:26
=== brittnee is now known as cookiecache
aukbite: JRE.  Java runtime.                  JDK = Java Development Kit.03:26
fellayaboyOoh so with vpn i get an ip address from that network so wgen i browse the internet im using that public.ip address...the remotes..?03:26
biteauk: JRE it is then.03:26
mukaibotfellayaboy: it depends how your routing is set up03:26
mukaibotfellayaboy: typically no03:27
aukxangua: You suggested JDK because it would come with both?03:27
aukMost dev stuff seems to come with both anyway.03:27
fellayaboyStill so confused03:27
nils_fellayaboy: that depends on how you set it up. I have a vpn with a remote location so I can access that private network, still use my regular ISP to go online but I could also use a gateway on that network03:27
whoeverYourname`: /var/log/03:27
xanguaauk: i suggested OpenJDK03:27
Yourname`whoever: What does the log file have to do with awstats?03:27
biteauk: JDK is strictly for development, yes?03:27
mukaibotfellayaboy: if your goal is to change your IP address for websites, a proxy is probably a better choice03:27
Yourname`whoever: Because when I installed it via webmin, I don't see awstats.pl installed at all :S03:27
fellayaboyI see03:28
aukfellayaboy: VNC is just some fancy cool remote desktop thingy (An alternative since RDP for window-ish systems sucks).03:28
aukbite: And for people interested in creating java programs.03:28
mukaibotauk: I don't think we're talking about VNC03:28
aukOH VPN.03:29
whoeverYourname`: well i ausmed it was all there try to install the mod manually, honestly I haven't used webmin in years03:29
aukAh, gotcha.03:29
mukaibotauk: :)03:29
biteauk: very well then, thanks.03:29
fellayaboySo with a vpn.its like connecting to the shared folders03:29
mukaibotnot quite03:29
mukaibotfellayaboy: there are several types of VPNs03:29
whoeverYourname`: maybe you need to just install the modual again03:29
Yourname`whoever: Thanks. I installed it via webmin first, then did an apt-get and that's when I saw awstats.pl, but even when I put the path to awstats.pl in the webmin module config, it still doesn't show..03:29
mukaibotfellayaboy: but they all do the same thing; connect you to a network03:29
fellayaboyIts like ita physically connected to tje network where i can access the resources such as shared folders03:29
aukDoesn't VPN feature already exists in Ubuntu, to just set it up along with your normal wifi/wired internet configurations (GUI) or you're trying to like SSH VNC it?03:29
mukaibotfellayaboy: yes03:30
mukaibotfellayaboy: shared folders, printers, internal websites...etc03:30
fellayaboyI want total privacy while on the net....03:30

fellayaboySites like the piratebay use a vpn i heard and if u browse to share files i should use a vpn i heard03:31
mukaibotneedhelp23323: what have you done? LOL03:32
needhelp23323mukaibot: nothing03:32
mukaibotneedhelp23323: lol...03:32
aukfellayaboy: VPN basiclly is this:                Point to point connection.        It will feel as though you're part of a network from another side of the world (REMOTE).       And you can share files between computers  as if you're reaally on the other side of the world.         Many people use VPN as a proxy server.03:32
mukaibotneedhelp23323: can you paste /etc/apt/sources.list03:32
whoeverYourname`: personaly i think webmin is just another layer of crap when the modual can be implemented to almost any server03:32
needhelp23323mukaibot: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827207/03:32
mukaibotauk: VPN and Proxy are not the same03:32

pangolinmukaibot: run sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade , then try to install openssh again03:33
whoeverYourname`: does it hAve to be webmin03:33
nils_fellayaboy: well you could have a vpn into a network with some obscure foreign provider that doesn't give your details away, there are services for that. However that's beyond the scope of this channel.03:33
needhelp23323holstein: its 10.0403:33

flowerpotauk, didn't know about that!  thanks.03:39
aukflowerpot: You're welcome :303:39
Yourname`whoever: apache2. Oh, also, this awstats doesn't detect new domains coming in to it, does it? Because when I register domains, I point ns to it and they all go to default /var/www and that's when I want awstats to see that requests for newdomain.com are coming in and it needs to start putting it all together. Anything like that?03:40
pangolinholstein: i think the problem is that openssh-server is looking for an older version of a openssh-client than is available in the repo, looks like a bug report is needed.03:40

macer1a 100's of messages like that in /var/log/syslog03:58
ubu_noobDang, Cause i have a 64bit windows 7 on my laptop and when i needed to install (dual boot) ubuntu i heard that the 32bit was more stable so thats the one i installed but i was hoping i messed up and installed the 64bit ubuntu which i kinda want know. but i dont want to have to reinstall everything03:58
aukmacer1: That means that packet is not 100%.          You only got SOME OF IT.          TRUNCATED means you've reached some KIND of LIMIT,    and then it slices off anymore that would've exceeded such limit.04:00
macer1but why04:00
aukExample:        I can only make an 8 character password.     I used:     dreamcaster for a password.       BUT dreamcas      <------ Becomers the password.               TER     is TRUNCATED.04:01

zykotick9!hostname | Yourname`04:12
ubottuYourname`: Use hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.04:12
whoeverYourname`: so it is done in .bashrc so i gave you a link to hopefully explaine it04:12
Yourname`Thanks zykotick9 and whoever04:13
whoeverYourname`: now if you just want to change your hostname  look at /etc/hostname04:15
zykotick9whoever: as ubottu mentions, it's REALLY important if you edit /etc/hostname to edit /etc/hosts at the same time!  sudo breaks if they don't match.04:16
Yourname`zykotick9: I first edited /etc/hosts and then modified /etc/hostname04:18

mukaibotdjQuery: do you have any 'eth' devices in "ifconfig -a"05:28

lwq1996not really, i read online that it might be plugins but i installed flash a while back05:28
Syronif the video actually loads then the plugin is detected, so that's probably not it as long as the plugin is fairly recent05:29
CactusWiZaRdlwq1996: I had the same issue with... Don't recall the version now, was like v.6 or something like that, and back then it was because of the soundcard05:30

CactusWiZaRdlwq1996: i recommend checking the soundcard, and if there's nothing, just try to find the correct drivers05:31
lwq1996ive had it installed on this computer before a while back and didnt have any problem could it be that its a wubi install05:32
CactusWiZaRdlwq1996: naah, don't think so05:32
CactusWiZaRdbut it's possible05:32
lwq1996how do i get to the soundcard from desktop05:32
holsteinif the sound issues are isolated to youtube, i might explore flash/graphics drivers05:32
CactusWiZaRdhm, I think I'll change from mobile to wlan, brb ->05:33
lwq1996its not really traditional flash its using its like gnash or something like that05:33
ubottuYou're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)05:34
holsteinlwq1996: that would be another great place to start... isolate the audio device and drivers by playing audio successfully in some other way, then move on to flash i say05:34
lwq1996ok will try, i may be back with more questions since im still a newb05:35
omarhello guys05:36
SyronI don't want to put down gnash.. especially since I'm not familiar with it, but you can try adding the official flash plugin to %HOME/.mozilla/plugins to see if that speeds things up, assuming you're running firefox05:37

ubottuwiggmpk: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto06:07
urlin2uyitz_, hmm I have some exsperience here but mainly with just reload the mbr, with grub, lilo, or the ms bootloaders, and just clonezilla on single hd's so you probably know more then I do06:08
wiggmpklotuspsychje: perhaps you didnt read the entire question, I already know how to setup a software raid with Linux, I need to know if you it's even possible for a Windows 7 installation to be installed on a linux software raid06:08
urlin2uyitz_, probably lol I'm sure of it. :D06:09
deelHi please see my issue I shared here http://askubuntu.com/questions/101018/how-to-set-keyboard-for-phonetic-hindi-typing-oneiric-for-wx-keyboard-on-qwerty06:09
yitz_urlin2u: Heh. Could be. Thanks for trying, though :)06:09
damo22wiggmpk: do you know how to use mdadm, i need help with recovering a raid506:09
urlin2uyitz_, no problem.06:09
lotuspsychjewiggmpk: it all depends how one partition my guess?06:10
wiggmpkdamo22: my experience is limited to personal only. I am no expert at it, and have never had to recover information for a linux drive (only Windows)06:10
wiggmpklotuspsychje: is it possible to have the Windows 7 installation recognize an mdadm partition? I mean I already know it cant out of the box, there has to be something loaded to recognize it, I just dont know how to google that lol06:11
noybhello.  using ubuntu 11.10... still trying to mount cdrom... slowly figuring it out... now when i try to mount using gmount i get "pixmap error."  time to go back to pencil and paper  :-)  any ideas?06:12
wiggmpklotuspsychje: I know you can install a striped mdadm fakeraid and partition a space for a Win7 install on a single disk in the array, but I want to stripe the Win7 install as well06:12
wiggmpknoyb: your cdrom doesnt mount automatically when you insert the disc?06:13
lotuspsychjewiggmpk: not sure about that one sorry mate, would virtualization help you with win7?06:14
noybwiggmpk... it spins... but nada... then i use gmount & still nada...06:14
wiggmpklotuspsychje: no, I have a specific need for a native win7 install (already have a VM and more of a proof of concept and education)06:14
wiggmpknoyb: do you have a cdrom that you absolutely know works? not damage?06:14
noybseveral, wiggmpk06:15
noybnone work06:15
b0shey guys, my computer just froze for a second, and now a process called md0_raid6 is taking up 27% cpu usage06:15
b0sis my computer exploding?06:15
b0si feel like my raid array just broke down06:15
coolstar-pcb0s: Try rebooting?06:15

noybwiggmpk... will give it a try... brb06:16
tyrohello. i'm new to ubuntu. whats the best way to get started? whats a good theme to choose?06:16
lotuspsychjelol its raid rampage here06:16
b0scoolstar-pc: mdadm --detail is telling me a rebuild is 74% complete. i don't know why it's rebuilding :(06:17
b0sit says its resyncing06:17
wiggmpkb0s: probably because something or some sector if your array was damaged06:17
b0swiggmpk: that's frightening.06:17
b0sdo you know how i can figure out what went wrong?06:17
wiggmpkb0s: it would be more frightening if it wasnt rebuilding06:17
b0si suppose06:18
wiggmpkb0s: check the logs mate06:18
noybwiggmpk... it says... "ls: cannot access /dev/cd: No such file or directory"06:18
b0swiggmpk: which logs? syslog? is there a separate log for raid devices?06:18
wiggmpknoyb: note the * after it, "ls /dev/cd* "06:18
noybwiggmpk... sorry... old eyes... brb06:19
wiggmpkb0s: what style of raid are you using?06:19
b0sraid 6, linux software raid06:19
b0sfive 500mb partitions on five separate drives06:19
b0s1.5tb available space06:19
b0swiggmpk: http://pastebin.com/qUTEzZgn06:20
wiggmpkb0s: 500mb x 5 is 2.5gb mate not 1.5tb06:20
b0swiggmpk: 1.5tb useable space, it's raid 606:21
noybwiggmpk... it says " /dev/cdrom  /dev/cdrw"06:21
freshnickwheres mukaibot06:21
wiggmpknoyb: hmm, I think this should try and mount it "sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt"06:22
noybwiggmpk... will try... brb06:23
wiggmpkb0s: as for you, I never really looked in the logs for raid failures, so I really dont know lol, but I am sure if somethings going on, it would be in there somewhere06:23
wiggmpkb0s truly sorry I couldnt be more help =/06:24
b0sthat's fine thanks :)06:24
b0sthe only thing i found in syslog is three lines saying "rebuild event detected on md device /dev/md/0"06:24
noybwiggmpk... it says... mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only06:25
noybmount: /dev/sr0 already mounted or /mnt busy06:25
noybmount: according to mtab, /dev/sr0 is already mounted on /mnt06:25
b0si'm googling and it may be completely normal, there's a cron job which does a raid array check every month or something06:25
b0smaybe i just never noticed it before06:25
wiggmpknoyb: well then do "cd /mnt" and then "ls" to see whats there06:25

b0swelp, computer hasn't caught fire yet, gonna assume all is well06:27
urlin2uMixxit, rescue mode what exactly do you mean can you get to the desktop, or is that a metaphore?06:27
b0sthanks folks06:27
Mixxitthe rescue mode on the alternate cd06:27
Mixxiti have a shell in front of me06:28
Mixxitthe disk is /dev/sda06:28
Mixxitbut shell  is the cd rescue shell06:28
urlin2uMixxit, never used it you can fx gru pretty easily from the terminal on the dektop, have you run the bootscript perchance?06:28
CactusWiZaRdanyone know how to connect to gtalk with bitlbee?06:28
wiggmpksaji89: I am sure it would be a config setting for apache, change the root directory (probably in the conf file)06:28

saji89wiggmpk: ya.06:29
urlin2uMixxit, try this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#ChRoot06:29
Mixxiti don't have mdadm in this rescue shell06:30
urlin2uMixxit, if you can chroot from that command line you should be set if the mbr your aiming at is on the correct drive if you have more then one and the bios is reading it first.06:31
noybwiggmpk... as follows... cd /mnt  does nothing... ls says "reading directory .: input/output error"06:31
wiggmpksaji89: have you tried restarting your computer?06:31
Mixxitsays mount -B is an invalid option06:32
wiggmpknoyb: then there is probably a driver issue with your cdrom drive (at least it indicates that) or a program with the actual drive (physically)06:32
ejvb0s: pastebin your dmesg06:32
saji89wiggmpk: yes.. that too.06:32
ejvb0s: that will highlight your raid errors06:32
urlin2uMixxit, I change OS often I just use supergrub, if IO forget to set the mbr correctly and reload from the desktop.  http://www.supergrubdisk.org/06:32

Mixxitit doesn't even let me type anything06:34
urlin2uMixxit, but X is used a desktop or headless, just trying to understand you.06:34

frybyeHi - what command do I need to run a programme that continues to run after closing the terminal window?06:35
Mixxitinstall went fine06:35
b0sejv: huge number of ata1 errors, is one of my drives failing? i haven't gotten any SMART errors, and mdadm seems to think it's fine06:35
urlin2uMixxit, you need to tap shift to get the grub menu with single installs06:35
zykotick9frybye: screen is one option, aka gnuscreen06:35
wiggmpknoyb: did you install from scratch (alternate cd) or through a livecd?06:35
b0si don't mind if a drive fails, i actually have a spare 500gb drive sitting here on my desk i can just swap it in06:35
Mixxittap shift at power on?06:36
urlin2uMixxit, you have a desktop you use right?06:36
urlin2uMixxit, yes06:36
zykotick9Mixxit: hold shift is probably easier06:36
Mixxitjust shows a black screen06:36
CactusWiZaRdgod damn it06:36
noybwiggmpk... i downloaded 11.10 from ubuntu... burned it to disk... and gleefully slaughtered windows vista... install was flawless.06:36
frybyeI am running unity with 11.10 and want to be able to start indicator-weather so it continues when closing terminal - what would be the command in that case..?06:36
urlin2uzykotick9, I always tap like a nervous user, fast. :D06:37
Mixxitwith shift i mean, it shows a black screen still06:37
frybyesorry that was for zykotick906:37
theadminfrybye: indicator-weather &disown06:37
wiggmpksaji89: what is in "/etc/apache2/sites-available/" ?06:37
dark|angelhey there06:37
frybyeoh good thanks theadmin06:37
dark|angelis there any way to configure Ubuntu to auto generate SSH keys on boot?06:37
urlin2uMixxit, you change any grub perimeters?06:37
dark|angelif it doesn't find any in /etc/ssh ?06:37
Mixxitno stock nextnextnext06:37
wiggmpknoyb: lol right, but was it through a LiveCD (where you had a fully functioning Ubuntu loaded) or through the older text menu driven installer?06:37
saji89wiggmpk: artis.local  default  default-ssl  test.local06:38
frybyetheadmin: nice one - just the job... thanks06:38
noyblive cd06:38
theadminfrybye: Heh. Works with everything basically so06:38
zykotick9dark|angel: ssh keys should typically change (how can you verify it's the correct box, if it changes every boot?)06:38
frybyetheadmin: great - things are so simle -when you know how- heheh06:38
noybsorry wiggmpk... live cd06:38
frybyee e e simple06:39
wiggmpknoyb: hmm, then I might seek a second opinion for troubleshooting, because the drive shouldnt have an issue wiht drivers if you used the livecd06:39
dark|angelzykotick9 I'm trying to make a couple of Xen templates. I said in case it doesn't find any SSH keys in /etc/ssh - for xen templates there shouldn't be any06:39
wiggmpksaji89: and do you have something in /var/www/test/ like a landing page, index.hmt?06:39
zykotick9dark|angel: sorry.  i get ya.  hadn't contemplated the reason.  good luck.06:39
noybwiggmpk... maybe i'm overthinking this... when a cd or dvd mounts... shouldn't a window pop up with the program in it?06:40
noybwiggmpk... in other words, shouldn't something obvious happen?06:40
wiggmpknoyb: it should, or  a box to ask you what you want to do. but if it gives you an input/output error that's not good06:40
wiggmpknoyb: is there a disc or cd image on your desktop?06:41
dark|angelzykotick9 RedHat based distros have a sshd script that autogenerate keys if they don't find any. It wouldn't be an issue, but if the keys are missing, the user can't login over SSH06:41
noybwiggmpk... damn... time to go back to my good old trash 80  :)06:41
Ben64noyb: pastebin "ls -l /dev/s*"06:41
zykotick9dark|angel: i've seen ubuntu generate those keys either during install, or on first run.  I don't know the answer though.06:41

smokeycastlewait so all those words before the .conf suffix dont actually matter other than as human readability?06:46
theadminsmokeycastle: With modprobe? Nope06:46
smokeycastleis that the same with init scripts?06:47
smokeycastlehmm wait stupid question lol06:47
noybBen64... it coughed up lots of permissions stuff... do you want me to paste it or ?06:47
theadminsmokeycastle: Well it is and it isn't, lol, I mean, you can call an initscript anything but you have to use the same name when running it then06:48
wiggmpknoyb: probably repeat the command with "sudo" in front06:48
Ben64it shouldn't say anything about permissions06:48

theadminkralle: Ubuntu and Ubuntu Netbook Remix are now the same thing cause we're using the netbook interface (Unity) by default06:49

kblinbut yes, X11 is fixed07:01
theadminkblin: ew boy... I suggest you reinstall :/ Upgrades break Ubuntus07:01
wiggmpkkblin: +1 to what theadmin said07:02
* kblin sighs07:02
noybwiggmpk... the fault, if any, is mine.07:02
tnmtheadmin: i found a command sudo useradd -G www-data kubanc where www-data is group and kubanc is a user...07:02
kblinwhat's the point in using a debian-based distro when you can't dist-upgrade? :)07:02
Flanneltnm, theadmin: No.  You don't want to do that.07:02
Flannelkblin: Upgrades work fine for many users.07:02
theadminFlannel: I have to point out (s)he uses useradd, not usermod. That's safe.07:02
theadmin...I think07:03
Flanneltnm, theadmin: use `adduser username group` instead07:03
theadminThat works too07:03
tnmFlannel: well i already did and it didn't work :D07:03
theadminI'm used to "usermod -aG" myself but that's just me07:03
Flanneltnm: The problem with the command you gave above is -G without -a will replace secondary groups and not append.07:03
kblinFlannel: I was responding to 08:01 < theadmin> kblin: ew boy... I suggest you reinstall :/ Upgrades break Ubuntus07:03
Flanneltnm: it does work (you need sudo)07:03
tnmi did sudo, but i still cannot copy files to a folder which has permission for group www-data07:04
Flannelkblin: That's his experience, there's a large group of people that upgrades work just fine on.  I haven't reinstalled my machine since 6.06, for example.  There's a variety of things that will affect your chances of success during an upgrade.07:04
kblintheadmin: anyway, once I install a desktop environment, it seems fine07:04
Flanneltnm: Does that folder give www-data group write permissions?07:04
kblinFlannel: well, what bit me is that for the first time in years, I need to put in an xorg.conf again to make X11 start up07:05
kblinand that kde broke during the upgrade to 11.1007:05
theadminFlannel: Well I never had a successful Ubuntu upgrade myself though I do guess it's just me. Also, "his" doesn't apply to me, but whatever.07:05
kblinbut both have since been fixed07:05

noybBen64... we may have to hold off on the pastebin... i'm writing with one hand, typing with the other, & my feet are trying to keep my pedal powered pc going... :-)07:09
Flanneltnm: g+w will give group write permissions, if that doesn't give you write permissions, you're not the owner/group.07:10
Ben64noyb: O_o use a plug or something07:10
Flanneltnm: After adding yourself to the www-data group (I assume the file has been set to have a group of www-data?), did you log in/restart/whatever you want to call it your terminal?07:12
tnmFlannel: g+q command gives me drw-rw-r-- 16 www-data www-data permissions. I cannot copy files. The command: id kubanc gave me this: uid=1001(kubanc) gid=1001(kubanc) groups=1001(kubanc),33(www-data)07:12
tnmFlannel: no, i didn't restart07:12
Flanneltnm: not restart, just log out/back in (from the terminal, so if this is gnome-terminal, close/re-open is fine)07:13
Flanneltnm: rw-rw-r-- is correct.07:13
Flanneltnm: Is that a directory or a file?07:13
Flanneloh wait, I answered my own question.07:13
quiescensi'd guess directory07:13
tnmdirectory :D07:13
quiescensin which case execute is really probably needed07:14
Flanneltnm: Directories need +x as well, to cd into them.  I.... guess I don't know if you need +x to write to them.07:14
noybBen64... you mean electricity?  Heard of it... never had much use for it.  The hamster in my little wheel supplies all the power I need.  ;-)07:14
Flanneltnm: (this is why setting everything to a particular numeric value is problematic at best)07:14
Ben64noyb: do you want your cd drive to work?07:14
saschxdnow that dmraid shows me asr_, asr_2 and asr_5 .... which one/two would be the right to mount ?07:15
noybBen64... yes, of course... but at this point it's winning the war.07:15
tnmFlannel: i still cannot copy files, should i restart the system?07:15
Flanneltnm: No.  Did you chmod that directory a+x?07:15
Ben64noyb: I asked you 34 minutes ago for a pastebin and you still haven't provided that. It really isn't that complicated to mount a cd drive, but if you never respond, it will never happen07:16

rodhashHello .. does anyone know how to fix it??10:29
ServerSageCuliforge: Yup.  That would be the one.10:29
CuliforgeServerSage: ok, I'll be back in a couple to report then10:29
ServerSagerodhash: Aah, didn't realize you had asked already.  Just chill, if somebody knows the answer they will chime in.  Chances are nobody knows.10:29
=== Memphisau is now known as Memphis
ServerSagerodhash: Out of curiosity, is that coming from the X logs?10:31
ahhughezI cant find anything like tag and rename for ubuntu :'( ideas?10:32
rodhashServerSage, yes.. from Xorg.0.log10:32
ServerSagerodhash: Do you get it all the time, or only when you do certain things (watch videos, play games, etc…)?10:32
ServerSageahhughez: I think there is something called Audio Tag Tool.   I've not used it though.10:33
rodhashwhen I start compiz... but it started today only, and compiz and its effects becomes slow10:34
ServerSageahhughez: Wow, never mind.  It's not been updated in a long time it would appear.10:34
rodhashServerSage, and I've googled but found nothing10:34
damo22how do you force a recheck of a raid array, so it doesnt get marked as degraded?10:34
ServerSageahhughez: http://www.mp3tag.de/en/10:35
CuliforgeServerSage: Ok, what I saw was "cannot write .pid file /dev/initramfs.d/plymouth.pid10:36
ServerSagedamo22: It's probably getting marked as degraded for a reason.  :)10:36
CuliforgeServerSage: or something quite like that10:36
* theadmin is off. See ya everyone, hamsters to all of you %)10:37
damo22serversage: basically its raid5 with 5 disks, 1 failed badly and the spare didnt get a chance to resync fully10:37
KayGridleyanyone know why on a reboot I'd lose all the ip settings on a 10.04 server?10:37
ServerSagerodhash: I found a few things talking about xorg bugs and upgrading mesa.  :/  Not sure that will help you though.10:37
damo22i want to force the loading of disk5 into the final position and get it to fire  up10:37
damo22without a spare10:37
dns53damo22 so you have not lost data but you do not have enough disks to satisfy the redundency?10:38
ServerSagedamo22: So you have a RAID5, 5 disks total but one is dead and you want to pull the spare in?10:38
damo22dns53: yes10:38
dns53have you put in a spare disk?10:39
damo22dns53: no i have hot removed the faulty disk10:39
cowpattyformat a usb drive with FAT32 file system10:39
damo22and i want to load the spare without replacing the spare10:39
rodhashServerSage, hmm ... besides xorg is getting those erros my ubuntu is working fine, but I'd like to fix that.... but I didn't figure out how..10:39
damo22s/second spare/faulty10:39
ServerSageKayGridley: I'm not sure, but this page may help:  https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/network-configuration.html10:39
pfSenseLogsis there a way to check which IP modified a file in a shared folder?10:40
damo22can i create a dummy loopback device and insert it as the new spare?10:40
ServerSagerodhash: I don't run a GUI at all on my linux boxes, so it's a bit outside my realm of experience.  Is your box up to date?10:40
dns53damo22 you need to rescan the disks (i'm not sure how to do this without rebooting), mark the new disk for raid, then add the disk to the existing raid array10:40
KayGridleyServerSage: thanks, just realised I'm a) a complete idiot and b) have been reading that but using the temp settings10:40
KayGridleywill now go and hang head in shame10:41
dns53damo22 it will then automatically rebuild the array to the new disk10:41
ServerSageKayGridley: Hehe, we have all been there.  Simply apply head to desk several times, always helps.10:41
KayGridleyServerSage: believe me already doing that!  It has been a morning, turns out me/our tech guy forgot to put the air con back on in the server room yesterday morning10:42
KayGridleylosing an ip address being a minor issue after fixing that one :)10:42
ServerSageKayGridley: Let me guess, turned it off because you were freezing standing in there working at console?  :)10:42
damo22dns53: http://pastebin.com/pDpyJdtD10:43
KayGridleyServerSage: nope, turned it off coz my boss was freezing standing there watching me work :)10:43
damo22i got it to insert the spare /dev/sdf1 as position 4 but it says clean, degraded10:43
ServerSageKayGridley: At least you can blame the boss.  :)10:43
pfSenseLogsis there a way to check which IP modified a file in a shared folder?10:43
KayGridleycould have sworn we'd put it back on but the remote is a bit dodgy so I suspect I forgot to double check it had actually worked10:43
ServerSagepfSenseLogs: You can look in the logs in /var/log.10:44
ServerSagepfSenseLogs: NFS or Samba?10:44
ServerSagepfSenseLogs: Yup, depending on your smb.conf file you should have logs in /var/log/samba/10:44
Monkeypawsim tryin to input a mjpeg http stream from an ip camera and output to something apache can stream.  Is VLC what i need or is there a better way?10:45
pfSenseLogswhat makes a difference in smb.conf?10:45
ServerSagepfSenseLogs: You can set log level, your log file, what shares are logged, etc...10:46
pfSenseLogsif nothing is set10:46
dns53damo22   so it does not know about the new disk, there is something you needed to run to mark the disk for raid and add it to the degraded array, let me google it10:46
pfSenseLogsnothgin is done?10:46
pfSenseLogsor logging is done by default10:46
ServerSagepfSenseLogs: I'm not sure what the default is.  You'll have to look.10:46
damo22dns53: do you think its a good idea to add the faulty disk as a spare, it has a lot of direct I/O buffer read sector errors10:48
dns53 damo22   it should be something like:    mdadm --manage /dev/md3 --add /dev/sdf110:48
dns53damo22 probably not, but you can, you just need to wipe the partition table10:48
ServerSageMonkeypaws: You're asking that question in kind of the wrong channel.10:49
dns53damo22   mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdf110:49
damo22really? on sdf1? whys that10:49
obounaimI have difficult time viewing the ubuntu developer week logs i need to scroll left and write to read and the scroll bar is at the end of the log10:49
dns53damo22 that was the disk you added?10:51
damo22dns53: yes, mdadm: Couldn't open /dev/sdf1 for write - not zeroing10:51
=== recharge_away is now known as recharge
dns53damo22 so it is probably dead or on it's way out10:51
tellone! path|me10:53
ServerSage!path | tellone10:53
damo22dns53: so with 3/5 disks intact and the 4th one on its way out, if i add a 5th disk will it recover?10:54
ServerSagetellone: Don't think ubottu-the-great understand path.10:54
telloneServerSage: guess not10:55
dns53damo22 did we just kill the wrong disk?10:55
Chotaz_how can I find which processes or jobs are using a specific hdd?10:55
dns53Chotaz_ lsof10:55
damo22dns53: i dont think it wrote anything to the disk10:55
telloneis there a max-value for path length?10:55
damo22dns53: since it was part of the array10:56
dns53damo22  so /proc/mdstats still shows that it is a clean but degraded array?10:56
DJonessudo apt-get install bitlbee10:56
DJonesugh, sorry10:57
damo22dns53: md3 : active raid5 sdb1[0] sdf1[6] sde1[3] sdd1[2]10:57
damo22      7814041600 blocks super 1.2 level 5, 512k chunk, algorithm 2 [5/4] [U_UUU]10:57
dns53damo22 so you have not lost any data, just add another disk of equal or greater size to the array and watch it rebuild over the next day10:58

damo22dns53: for some reason it thinks /dev/sdf1  is in position 6 (spare), but mdadm --detail shows position 410:59
damo22dns53: its because i hacked it in /sys/block/md3/md/dev-sdf1/11:00

dns53damo22 ok, so could you try failing the replaced disk?      mdadm --manage /dev/md3 --fail /dev/sdf111:09
meetawplot() does not work in scilab with ubuntu 11.10. Any fix ?11:09
damo22dns53: the faulty disk has been removed from the array already11:09
damo22dns53: it was /dev/sdc111:10
dns53damo22 but you put it back?11:10
damo22dns53: no i used the spare /dev/sdf1 and forced it into slot 411:10
ServerSagemeetaw: First off, we heard the first time.  Second, what is it doing?  "Doesn't work" isn't really much to go on.11:10

ServerSagemeetaw: What video card?  Intel?11:13
ServerSagemeetaw: I just spent 10 seconds googling (thats all you get!) and here is what I found:  http://www.equalis.com/forums/posts.asp?topic=32120111:14
meetawYeah I looked at that that thread. Unfortunately the solution breaks gnome-shell and unity11:15
dns53damo22 so there are 4 disks in the array out of 5?  so what is the problem?11:16
damo22dns53: it says clean, degraded11:16
ServerSagemeetaw: Did you try the suggestion near the bottom made by R. Riviere?11:16
damo22dns53: and doesnt seem to mount11:16
KartagisI can't get mu sound applet anymore. help me?11:16
ServerSagemeetaw: I can't see who that would break gnome-shell or unity.11:16
meetawYeah. It doesn't seem to work.11:17
dns53damo22 it will, it has all the data on disk so it is "clean" but does not have the redundancy, so it is "degraded", you should be able to use it in a degraded state11:17
meetawIt breaks because gnome-shell and unity need libgl1-mesa-glx to work. Removing it breaks them11:17
ServerSagemeetaw: You'll probably have better luck asking scilab folks.11:18
damo22dns53: but /proc/mdstat says sdf1[6] which means it still thinks its the spare11:18
damo22dns53: i need it to say sdf1[1]11:19

user82Hi! maybe a beginner question: but where does the output go when i press a magic sysrq key?11:24
icerootuser82: directly to tty11:25
meetawServerSage: thanks11:26
meetawI was using the 32 bit library11:26
meetawSilly me11:27
dns53damo22 i'm still not sure why you cannot use the array, it should be active11:27
user82iceroot, can i show it in the gnome terminal or only via ctrl+alt+1 (i assume 1 is tty)?11:28
icerootuser82: maybe syslog is also holding it11:28
icerootuser82: also see #bash maybe they know how to put that in your terminal instead of tty111:28
ikoniayou won't be able to put it into the gnome terminal11:29
user82okay thanks iceroot11:29
ikoniaas magic sysrq sends a break to the kernel, which can only output to the default tty as X11/gnome is a process running on top of it11:29
ikoniamagic sysrq will hang your system and interup all processes, so you can't send it to the desktop based terminals11:29

bullgard4Themenace: Launchpad states the status of a bug in each report.11:43
dns53Themenace xrdp is not really a server, it acts more like a proxy between rdp and vnc so you need some setup to get it working11:44
dns53Themenace you will need to start a vnc session and then set up xrdp to allow you to remotely login to the session11:45
Themenacedns53: Ok, thanks for the tip.. I have xrdp and is able to log in but the only thing that appears is my wallpapaer..11:46
Themenaceand yeah, perhaps I could get it to work with some configurations .. but when I had 11.04 it worked "as it should"11:46
ThemenaceAnd I just want to be able to rdp to my office computer without the hazzle of special configurations and so on :)11:47

LjLChotaz_: short answer: you can't do it with ext4. but the next Ubuntu version is supposed to have a defrag tool for it (no promises).14:12
icerootChotaz_: not needed14:12

MeawActionParsnip, actually that was giving me some error, and in network management it says my wireless Inactive14:48

Meawcannonball, no , its ON i got that in syslogs...14:48
Meawlast thing i did in network was setting up pppoeconfig14:48

oldmanDoes ubuntu support HID (usb) compliant touchscreens?17:37
ActionParsnipgoldcityman: sure, minimum requirement is still 512Mb, you will get a more responsive OS with Lubuntu17:37
theadminoldman: Yes, Ubuntu does have touchscreen support iirc17:38
goldcitymanwhat version?17:38
ActionParsnipoldman: depends on make and model17:38
theadmingoldcityman: Grab the latest Lubuntu is what I say17:38
goldcitymanwhat does it mean libasound2>>1.0.22 I'm trying to update chrome17:38
DinoMuffinYou might also like xubuntu17:38

ActionParsnip!lubuntu | metbsd17:38
ubottumetbsd: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.17:38

goldcitymancan I upgrade from ubuntu 9.10 or I have to format?17:39
auronandace!mini | metbsd17:39
ubottumetbsd: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD17:39
theadmingoldcityman: You can only upgrade to 10.04, then to 10.10, then to 11.04 and finally to 11.10. Which is a horrible mess. I suggest a reinstall.17:40

ActionParsnipgoldcityman: you can upgrade to lucid (10.04) then jump straight to Precise when it is released17:40

auronandace!ppa | scott__17:51
ubottuscott__: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa17:51
ActionParsnipscott__: add ppa then refresh packages, you can then install it like any other package17:51
DummyModeis there a way to upgrade to a new release without reinstalling? for example, from 10 to 12, just to say something..17:51
theadminscott__: Add the ppa, install the package. To add the ppa, use something like this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:username/repo (e.g: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next)17:51
Mixxithey is there a way i can snap to right side like windows 717:51
