tlhonmeyArthur__: well, try making a bootable USB, that might fix it.  If that doesn't work, removing the drive is usually only a couple of screws.00:03

DonaldShimodais a own builded kernel, not ubuntu kernel00:06

DonaldShimodatlhonmey, make uninstall do nothing00:07
DonaldShimodatlhonmey, the problem is now fglrx package failed to install because cannot build with 3.2 ....00:07
DonaldShimodatlhonmey, anyway to exclude 3.2 from dkms (jockey)?00:08
bjrohanActionParsnip: I believe so. I had access set up before, all worked well, then I did a few things on my laptop and lost connection for file sharing, so it must be that I did something on the laptop. I will google, and check laptop firewall settings00:08
tlhonmeyDonaldShimoda: I'm sure there is, but I don't know what it is off the top of my head.  try man dkms.00:09
ActionParsnipbjolders: i'd look into the firewall00:09
UnclNastyFingerzok so im trying to kompile a kernel to have support for a serial IR port, what modules do i need?00:10

amaroksanyone around?00:11

DonaldShimodatlhonmey, uninstall -m <module> -v <module-version>... how to know the module version...00:11
amaroksGoodnight :D I was just trying out IRC on empathy00:11
tlhonmeyUnclNastyFingerz: I don't remember the names, but the ones that are available are labeled as such if you go through the options in make menuconfig.00:11
amarokssomeone says my name please00:12
amaroksThat is cool00:12
amaroksnice notifications00:12
amaroksI used ubuntu for 1 month00:12
amaroksthen back to windows because I needed photoshop00:12
UnclNastyFingerzits on a KDE box obviously, hence the Kompiler if i were on gnome i would be using gCompiler00:12
amaroksthen I couldnt continue on windows!00:12
amaroksmissed back ubuntu00:12
amaroksand this week Im back forever I guess00:13
amaroksI felt locked in windows00:13
bazhangamaroks, actual support question?00:13
tlhonmeyDonaldShimoda: I'm not sure.  I'm not finding a good set of instructions anywhere.  Mostly, to uninstall a kernel you just need to delete all its files.00:13
gsramaroks: plus you can run windows apps with wine, and windows itself in virtualbox00:13

gsrCanadian1296,  is it a server side or client side question00:15
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: why not both :)00:15
Canadian1296gsr: Server side, but you guys respond faster00:16
Canadian1296ActionParsnip: Okay I will00:16
ActionParsnipkc4zvw_: log off and select the xfce session, the last session will be set as default for the user00:16
amaroksActionParsnip I have dual boot, I just hate windows not sure why00:16
ActionParsnipamaroks: or use Gimp in Ubuntu, its pretty decent00:16

hauxI have a couple of ext4 partitions, where if I right click on them in ubuntu, and check the permissions, they only show "root" as the user and no other options. I cannot write to these partitions. Can anyone tell me how to correct this?00:17
amarokswell i tried to learn some, just seems to do less00:17
npope_haux: google chown00:18
tlhonmeyRenatoSilva you might have more luck asking in #gnome00:18
ActionParsniphaux: add them in /etc/fstab and set better access00:18
humungulousCanadian1296: waiting for your ssh/sftp question00:18
amaroksThanks and Good night people00:19
tlhonmeyUnclNastyFingerz: There are a few sections of hardware drivers in there, the IR port drivers will be in one of them.  Unfortunately I don't recall which one.00:19
hauxI think chown is going to work here, as long as it works for entire partitions. Thank you!00:19

tlhonmeyzykotick9: generally speaking, yes.00:21
npope_haux: give it a user00:21
humungulousi think haux's problem is theyre not mounted correctly in the first place00:21
Canadian1296I need to confine certain users to their home directory in sftp. I have everything set up (they can't execute a shell, only sftp.) I need to confine them to their home (they are in the group "sftponly"). I'm using "Match group sftphosting00:21
Canadian1296        ChrootDirectory %h" to do so, but as soon as I add that i can't log in (I get "Write failed: broken pipe"00:21
ActionParsniphaux: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /mount/point      not the block device00:21
tlhonmeyhaux: that will change the permissions on the device allowing the user in question control of what to do with them.  It's probably not what you're wanting to do.00:21
Canadian1296Sorry that took so long, I was typing00:21
DonaldShimodatlhonmey, yeah! deleting modules domthe trick, thanks! will reboot and see00:22

hauxtlhonmey, that's pretty much what I'm trying to accomplish. Right now I simply can't write to them (without sudo), because root is set as the owner.00:23
supermuncan someone help me troubleshoot why my touchpad and touchpad left right clicks are not working?00:23
hauxActionParsnip, maybe I'm confused about what you mean by mount point. Is /dev/sdc1 not a mount point?00:23
Canadian1296So what do I have to do? I need to bind them to /var/www/hosting/theirusername so they can edit the contents of their server directory but nothign else.00:23
tlhonmeyhaux: that's an artifice of how they are mounted.  Try the uid and gid mount options to allow usage by non-root people.00:24
blumonkeycan i do a md5checksum on an ubuntu distro thats already burned to a disc00:24
glen_3bhaux: A mount point is where you access the device contents, for example /media/cdrom might be a cdrom mount point00:24
tlhonmeyhaux: /dev/sdc1 is the raw device.00:25

kihlimbut my doesnt have gnome preinstalled00:53
Canadian1296humungulous: The only things I can think of are a) The way I created the user, b) The fact the user's home is /var/www/hosting/rutger as opposed to /home/rutger, c) The fact they are bound to /var/www/hosting/rutger but that directory has no shell or sftp programs in it d) the ownerships.00:54

ActionParsnipkihlim: it does, unity is just a shell. It uses Gnome desktop by default00:55

Canadian1296humungulous: The guide says to use "sudo useradd -d /home/bob -s /usr/lib/sftp-server -M -N -g sftphosting bob"  but since some of those options are ambigous, itt translates to "sudo useradd /home/bob --shell /usr/lib/sftp-server -N --group sftphosting --disable-login home" I imagine the "--disable-login" may cause some issues...00:56

Although, I ended up formatting one of the partitions, and after the format, the user was reset back to root. I wonder why this happens? This did not occur in my previous install of ubuntu. Not a problem, just odd to me.01:28

gr0gmintHi, I have a VPN tunnel made only to traffic data for a specific user... when i tcpdump -i ppp0 i can see data flowing to and from my VPN tunnel, but the clients for the tunneled user can't receive the data (but i can clearly see it is there with tcpdump)... will anyone have a look at my iptables script please?02:33

poincare101Hi everyone. I'm currently dual booting ubuntu and windows 7. Now, my ubuntu install got bricked (update went wrong), so, I want to reinstall, but, I want it to write over my old parition, can ubuntu do that?02:44
chuck_poincare101: yes02:44
poincare101chuck_: directly for the instaler?02:44
aboxorgchuck_, do you have an asus laptop, I have the same issue.02:44
chuck_poincare101: just do a manual partition and format the correct partition02:44
orangepnutWhen I use the Gnome setting when I login to Ubuntu the top bar is this neon blue color and all the text is distorted and unreadable, how do I fix this?02:44
chuck_aboxorg: nope, its a custom desktop02:45
Gaming4JCHey all, I'd like to know if it's possible to run two hard-drives on one computer at the same time. Rather than dual-boot. Then just use a VNC to view my windows box. Possible? :)02:45
ActionParsnippoincare101: use custom partitioning and set the system partition for formatting and use it ext4 as /02:45
chuck_poincare101: it'll reinstall grub, but it should auto detect your win7 install02:45
ActionParsnippoincare101: obviously leave your ntfs partition alone and if you have a different partition for /home then tell the installer to use the partition as ext4 but NOT format it02:45
Gaming4JCIt's the best way I can break my windows habbit, by using Ubuntu all the time, and moving to windows when absolutely nesccary. :P02:46
aboxorgGaming4JC, why not just run windows inside a VM (virtualbox?) inside linux. Then you can make snap-shots so you can revert back when you get a virus :P02:46
ActionParsnipGaming4JC: you'd need to virtualize one02:46
Gaming4JCI've done that02:46
Gaming4JCbut it doesn't run certain things02:46
Gaming4JCe.g. video editing software02:46

ActionParsnipGaming4JC: what do you use VNC to achieve? Why do you connect to the system?02:46
poincare101ActionParsnip: so, it will be able to recover my data?!02:46
poincare101ActionParsnip: I would love if it could do that02:47
Gaming4JCActionParsnip: nothing yet, currently I dual boot. I would like to be able to VNC into another HDD and play on Windows02:47
chuck_poincare101: if /home is on its own partition02:47
chuck_which IS recommended02:47
ActionParsnippoincare101: 1. Yes, boot to liveCD and you can access the data there and copy to a different storage temporarily.   and 2. Why do you NOT have a backup??02:47
aboxorgI run win7 inside ubuntu and I have access to everything I've tried. I can run wow, grab youtube vid's and convert them. Not happy with performance?02:47
poincare101chuck_: whoever had that idea needs to be given lots of money02:47
ActionParsnipGaming4JC: for the video editting i'm guessing..?02:47

Gaming4JCActionParsnip: right02:48
chuck_Gaming4JC: no you can't run two OSes on the same computer at the same time02:48
chuck_poincare101: errr? its a pretty common thing to do02:48
ActionParsnipGaming4JC: not tried any of the many native video editors in Ubuntu?02:48
Gaming4JCActionParsnip: I have, but none of them offer multi-layers + effects that are required02:48
Gaming4JCe.g. Chroma Key and manual key animation02:48
chuck_poincare101: wait til you discover you can format /dev/ramX devices ;)02:49
ActionParsnipGaming4JC: I see02:49
aboxorgNot really sure. What does WoW use? I tried that before. It's kinda why I did it at first.02:49
chuck_aboxorg: what does WoW use for what?02:49
ActionParsnipaboxorg: you can run WoW very well in wine, its the top rated app in the appdb02:49
Gaming4JCtry running Sony Vegas Movie Studio or Adobe Premier in Wine02:49
chuck_aboxorg: I recommend trying crossover if wine is too difficult of time consuming02:50
chuck_Gaming, adobe stuff normally works in wine02:50
Gaming4JCI definately need a windows box on occassion, it's just frustating having to dual-boot or virtually once you've tried VNC :|02:50
chuck_Gaming, you can always check the wine desktop02:50
chuck_wine database*02:51
Gaming4JCyeah I've done that02:51
Gaming4JCcodecs etc are missing during rendering02:51
chuck_Gaming, crossover database?02:51
Gaming4JCnot tried Crossover02:51
chuck_Gaming, crossover is wine but with some non-free stuff added, including some codecs02:51
Gaming4JCI would prefer to keep my linux distro free of non-free though. Seems wrong. xD02:52
chuck_Gaming, well if you are installing non-free software in wine, then that kills that idea to start with02:52
xanguaGaming4JC: then you wouldn't use ubuntu, do you feel dirty now?02:52

maceleSo I can transfer at 10MB/s with smbclient but only at 4MB/s with ubuntu's cifs kernel implementation. I read that this is due to the kernel not allowing asynchronous transfers.

marcosrorizHi guys. I'm still using ubuntu natty (11.04), the main reason is because I found the complete lib transition (libgtk2 -> libgtk3) in oneiric too buggy. I was wondering what is the current 'status' of oneiric, is it buggy? Is gnome 3 currently more 'customizable'?03:36
linociscois there anyone who could explain this "http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html" to me?03:36
Pikkachumarcosroriz: I was annoyed by unity at natty and oneiric but I decided to reinstall from scratch after several years...now I'm just trying things out...I'm giving unity a chance, been doing a few customizations... it's not annoyingly buggy from my experience03:38
ActionParsnipmarcosroriz: its got a bit better, what you think may be different to what I see as ok. Have you maybe tried a different DE...03:38
klenwellHi. Has anyone here successfully installed the ADT (Android Dev Tool) plugin for Eclipse on Ubuntu 11.10? I'm having some trouble.03:38

chipotlehi, i am trying to setup ubuntu, and i have 5 hdd's installed. i would like to use the 750gb drive like this: partition 1: 100gb / ext3, partition 2: 100gb ntfs for windows 7 dual boot and the rest for /home. then the rest of the drives, i want to use to store media on them (this is a file server)03:49
chipotleso what should i do?03:49
urfr332gOchipotle, I would put wundows first on the drive.03:50
Pikkachumarcosroriz: ah you mean you'll just wait 12.04 for customizing it? I see03:50
chipotleshould i partition the other drives later?03:50
chipotleso the first partition ntfs? the second ext3 and in the / position?03:50
marcosrorizPikkachu, not only that but because until there gnome 3 will have more tools to customize and be more stable03:50
urfr332gOchipotle, any reason for ext303:50
Pikkachumarcosroriz: sounds nice... I just hope it doesn't mess with dist-upgraters from oneiric03:51
chipotleurfr332gO: well, what are you recommending?03:51
urfr332gOchipotle, ext3 is okay the default is ext4 in ubuntu03:51
orlokI'm trying to create a suid root copy of bash under ubuntu03:52
orlok.. its not working, even after i remounted / without nosuid03:52
chipotleurfr332gO: well, the point was so windows could view the partition and i don't know if it can read+write ext4, but it can ext303:52
orlokAlso, with nosuid, how does su work?03:52
Jordan_Uorlok: Making a setuid root copy of bash sounds like an absolutely *terrible* idea.03:52
Pikkachuchipotle: it can't read linux partitions03:53
urfr332gOchipotle, on this channel and in general a shared ntfs is preferred.03:53
orlokJordan_U: i know, its to test whether a security auditing package will pick it up.03:53
linocisco is there anyone who could explain this "http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html" to me?03:53
chipotlePikkachu: it can with http://www.fs-driver.org/03:53
Pikkachuchipotle: what do you mean what should you do? you should implement what you just described, no?03:53
Jordan_Uorlok: OK. You had me concerned there for a moment :)03:53
orlokJordan_U: However, the fact that i cant actually do it has me confused now. Also, how the hell DOES su work with a partition mounted nosuid03:53
chipotleurfr332gO: so, should i just partition the one drive right now, the 750gb and then come back to the four other drives at a later date?03:54
linocisco is there anyone who could explain this "http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html" to me?03:54
chipotlemeaning, once i have ubuntu running03:54
chipotlecan i continue /home on several different drives if one runs out of space...03:54
orlokJordan_U: I was thinking it would be a 30 second test03:54
Pikkachuchipotle: cool, is it reliable? last time I checked all apps supposed to do that looked dumb03:54
chipotlePikkachu: yeah, i have heard good things03:54
orlokchipotle: yeah, many ways of doing it03:54
Jordan_Uorlok: How did you mount the partition as nosuid?03:54
orlokJordan_U: installed ubuntu.03:55
chipotleorlok: what do you recommend? i ahve two 3TB drives that i want to also use as /home, can i do that in the installer?03:55
urfr332gOchipotle, all I would recommend is windows first on any of the drives it is easier to repair this way, and a shred ntfs wherever you want and the ubuntu where ever you want.03:55
orlokchipotle: i dont remember sorry, but probably as a mirror03:56
orlokJordan_U: ubuntu mounted it nosuid by default03:56
Pikkachuchipotle: do you want to mount different partitions at the same /home mounting point? @@03:56
chipotlewell, can i have multiple drives mount point be /home ?03:56
Jordan_Uorlok: Why do you think that?03:57
chipotlePikkachu: well, i have 5TB of ~/Movies, so preferably, when i run out on my one 3TB drive, the second 3TB drive can pick right up where i left off03:57
ActionParsnipchipotle: you could use lvms and make one 'drive' from the 2 combined03:57
Pikkachuchipotle: I've never heard of it03:57

chipotleActionParsnip: oh, i'd prefer not use LVM03:58
chipotleso what should i select as the mount point for the other hard drives, ActionParsnip ?03:58
PikkachuActionParsnip, chipotle may also consider just using ntfs and symlinks03:58

Jordan_Uorlok: Your suid copy.04:00
orlokJordan_U: -rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 818232 2012-02-24 10:17 /bin/dodgybash04:01
orlok4755 and root.root04:01
Jordan_Uorlok: What is the output of "/bin/dodgybash -c whoami"?04:02
Pikkachuchipotle: stuff are usually mounted in /media/desired_name but you can use any place you want04:02
orlokJordan_U: myusername04:02
chipotlePikkachu: oh, so i can name the mount point whatever i want?04:02
Pikkachuchipotle: yes04:02
chipotlePikkachu: how come i don't have the ntfs option in the installer?04:02
chipotlehow can i install win7 if i don't have an ntfs partition as the first partition04:03
L3topyou will want to install windows before ubuntu.04:04
martianchipotle: you may want to install win7 first as if you install it second it will likely overwrite grub04:04
chipotleoh, really?04:04
chipotlei didn't know that04:04
chipotlemartian: thanks :)04:04
L3topoh ches04:04
ActionParsnipchipotle: the NTFS doesn't have to be the first partition04:04
Pikkachuchipotle: in my case, I have a reiserfs which is / and two ntfs partitions, one is windows and the other a data partition. For those I'm using "udisks --mount /dev/sdaX" when logging in (session apps), that command will create a /media/mount_point_according_to_ntfs_partition_label_dynamically04:05
ActionParsnipchipotle: just install and leave unpartitioned space, you can then install ubuntu to the empty space04:05
chipotleActionParsnip: okay04:05
L3topbut it does want first crack at the mbr04:05
Pikkachuchipotle: 11.10 installer? not sure but the advanced option gives you access to a partition manager which isn't really that hard to go through04:06
chipotleActionParsnip: what would you recommend, i have a 500GB HDD, and two 3TB drives04:06
chipotlehow would you recommend i install ubuntu on them (sans the 100GB i'll leave for windows7)04:06
Jordan_Uorlok: Seems like bash may have a feature of some sort to try to protect stupid users. Doing the same with /bin/dash works as expected.04:07
jardineworkshas anyone here done an install on the Alenware m17x?04:07
Jordan_Uorlok: And to be clear, I am (as you should be) only doing this in a virtual machine. (In fact, I'm doing it in a VM using a LiveCD image only).04:07
jardineworksI'm curious how much success was had .. and with which version04:08
chipotlePikkachu: is gparted on the install disc?04:08
linociscohow to disable sleeping monitor screen on server version if there is no X windows?04:09
Pikkachuchipotle: are you taking about 11.10? it uses some other app but gparted is yet available in the repos04:09
ActionParsnipchipotle: look into lvms, if you want to keep them seperate, you can mount them at boot and have symlinks pointing to the mount points. This will reduce data loss if a drive dies (less to resore from backup)04:09
chipotlePikkachu: yes 11.1004:09
chipotleActionParsnip: i did LVM once and it was a disaster04:10
proboI just swapped my motherboard and need to install the new drivers, I'm booted in a rescue terminal, how do I tell ubuntu to grab whatever drivers it needs?04:10
chipotleActionParsnip: i can't have an easy way to install a 100GB / and the rest on /home  (and a swap partition)?04:10
Pikkachuchipotle: windows does not give a damn about other oses you may be using and overwrites MBR. So install windows first then boot from live cd, or install it later then reinstalls grub onto the MBR04:10
chipotlethen the second 3TB drive can be /media04:10
Jordan_Uprobo: The only drivers which aren't automatically detected and configured at boot would be proprietary drivers (graphics card or possibly wireless card).04:11
Jordan_Uprobo: What happens when you try to boot normally?04:11
proboJordan_U: The new mobo has a different ethernet card, it works fine from the install cd but doesn't work when booted from my hard drive.04:11
proboSo I don't get network when I boot normaly.04:12
Pikkachuchipotle: /media/something_within_it rather04:12
chipotlePikkachu: i'm using gparted first to setup the partition scheme04:12
Jordan_Uprobo: That's very odd. What is the output of "ifconfig" from the installed system?04:12
Pikkachuchipotle: from the livecd? why you didn't go though the normal steps04:13
linociscohow to ip route add according to split access in http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html ?04:13
chipotlePikkachu: i like gparted04:13
ActionParsnipchipotle: 100Gb for / is a LOT, you probably won't even need 20Gb. My desktop install is little over 4Gb04:13
chipotleActionParsnip: okay, so if i do 20GB for /, do i need to make any other partitions besides home?04:13
martianchipotle: I think you would be better off just runnign the windoze installer first, as win7 likes to create its own goofy 100mb partition for some thing or another04:13
Jordan_Uorlok: You might ask about it in #bash. But if you do, please make sure to immediately include that you are doing this for a test and not actually doing it on a production machine.04:13
proboJordan_U: It doesn't show eth1 unless I do ifconfig -a, that gives me interrupt code 17, so then I up it and I get some other interrupt code.04:13
Pikkachuchipotle: ok so what are your disk sizes and how much you want for windows and linux? how much ram?04:14
orlokJordan_U: I'd say "I'm the worlds most incompitent script kiddie".. but then, theres no way thats true.04:14
ActionParsnipchipotle: should be ok with those 3 :)04:14
chipotlethird being the unformatted partition for windows 7?04:15
ActionParsnipchipotle: Win7, /, swap, /home  = 4 partitions04:15
chipotlehow much swap do you recommend?04:15
ActionParsnipchipotle: how much RAM do you have?04:15
Pikkachudepends on ram as I asked04:16
ActionParsnipchipotle: do you need hibernate / suspend?04:16
chipotleum, no, i'll just turn off my monitor04:16
chipotlethis will be a fileserver04:16
PikkachuActionParsnip: suspend does not require dumping04:16
ActionParsnipchipotle: could probably get away with zero then, otherwise 9Gb swap will be fine04:16
Ubuntunuborlok:  No, you can't be.  I can't even get new rules for iptables to save right, lol.04:16
ActionParsnipPikkachu: I use it as a generic term, I know its different :)04:16
Pikkachuchipotle: how much you're planning for win7?04:17
PikkachuActionParsnip: ok04:17
proboJordan_U: Any ideas?04:17
chipotlePikkachu: 100gb, just to be safe04:18
Pikkachuchipotle: given that you have so much space, I'd recommend 100GB ã.ã04:18
Pikkachuchipotle: yay lulz04:18
Pikkachuwindows goes to mc donalds every day and gets fatter and fatter over time04:19
Jordan_Uprobo: Check the output of "dmesg" to see if that clarifies the problem. But other than that I don't know.04:20
chipotlePikkachu: okay and now for the other 3TB drive, should i just format it to ext3 and then the mount point /media/movies ?04:22
chipotleand then i can install ubuntu on my 15 GB partition that will be at /04:22
proboJordan_U: Just says it couldn't find an ipv6 router, huh. I just edited the network conf to change teh eth device from 0 to 1. We'll see if that makes a difference04:23
probosince eth0 isn't present, just eth104:23
Pikkachuchipotle: I'd use ext4 or reiserfs but if you really want to try out reading it through windows without fear of losing data, sure04:23
proboJordan_U: Boom! Came right up.04:23
ActionParsnipchipotle: if you use ext3 instead of ext4, you can use partimage to take backups :)04:24
Pikkachuchipotle: why don't you just format it as ntfs instead?04:24
L3topIf it is just for media I would choose xfs.04:25
Ian-MooneI am running Ubuntu LTS, and often times I will click on something, and capslock and scroll lock will flash and the computer will lock up. What do I do here, and how do I prevent it?04:25
Ian-Moonehas anyone else had my problem, or is there something I just did massively wrong?04:26
chipotlePikkachu: it won't let me save the partition because i am using more blocks than msdos partitions allow04:26

ubottuRaj84, please see my private message04:28
Vasisthapnorman: I think like this: apt-get millstone =2.0.1604:29

L3topIan-Moone: is it just a normal install, or are you running something "unusual" on it? Something which might be scanning USB... say for media or something.04:30
Ian-Moone@Vasistha: I will occasionally click on something (a link, a symlink, a binary, anything, but it can't just be nothing) and everything will continue running, but the keyboard and mouse don't respond. The keyboards scroll lock and caps lock keys flash.04:30
xauthpnorman: then select your version and install with apt-get install sqlite3=2.0.1604:31

sanJordan_U: i cannot install or upgrade any other software via internet or through deb file :( i think i will i have to wait for 12.04 then do a format and install07:16
Jordan_UDansTheMan: Not perfect (packages could have been removed after being installed), but should give you a general idea.07:16
lewis1711CFHowlett: it's not its own partition :( which is the ubuntu default07:16

chipotleso, how do i mount hard drives, e.g. sdb1?07:18
DansTheManI don't want to reinstall again.07:18
chipotlewhat do i need to do?07:18
CFHowlettlewis1711   see http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome07:18
Jordan_UDansTheMan: What are you trying to do to solve that?07:18
DansTheManJordan_U: I think it may be from some application I installed.07:18
Jordan_UDansTheMan: Start by describing your original problem in detail. It's likely that we'll be able to find a better way of solving the problem.07:18
DansTheManJordan_U: But I forgot what I installed just before I reboot :P07:19
DansTheManOh okay.07:19
DansTheManJordan_U: Well, the boot splash disappears and the following comes up:07:19
sanJordan_U: is there anyway i can go back? undo all what i did yesterday?07:19
chipotleand when i try copying over a file i get permission denied, because i didn't create them on this current machine, i took them from another machine... what do i do to get around this?07:19
urfr332gOsan, as far as fixing the burg thing you don't have to install. Whats going on with the upgrade or installs it is usually a basic fix?07:20
ubuntuok i m going...... to quit07:20
Jordan_Usan: Not a specific "go back to yesterday" command, no (though something like that is actually being worked on using btrfs snapshots).07:20
DansTheMan"* PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions. \n saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned \n [ OK ] \t * Starting anac(h)ronistic cron \n [ OK ] * Stopping anac(h)oristic cron \n [ OK ]"07:20

Jordan_UDansTheMan: Can you get to a terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+F1?07:20
sanJordan_U: lols sorry but sad there is and option is windows named System Restore07:20
DansTheManJordan_U: That's where I'm at :P07:21
kriskropdchipotle, you likely have permissions mixed up and given to different people, when you move the files, make sure to use 'sudo' to do it as root07:21
Jordan_UDansTheMan: What happens when you run "sudo service lightdm restart"?07:21
sanurfr332g0: sorry i dint get what you are trying to tell07:21
humunguloussystem restore in windows is a joke san07:21
chipotlekriskropd: so if i sudo it, what will the permissions be changed to?07:21
chipotlekriskropd: i want to make sure when i do sudo cp -r it works so when i wake up, it is finished07:21
DansTheManJordan_U: "restart: unknown instance"07:21
humungulousno one uses it07:21
sanhumungulous: why07:21
DansTheManJordan_U: But I've just been doing "sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm restart"07:22
kriskropdchiptole, it wont change them, it will just override them because sudo can do anything :)07:22
humungulousbecause you fix a problem that presents itself07:22
kriskropdsudo substitues your user to root powers, root is like the god inside your linux07:22
Jordan_UDansTheMan: You should not do that. You should use "sudo service foo {start,stop,restart,foo}07:22
k1llj0yhow do i use man chown?07:22
DansTheManJordan_U: When doing that, it flashes back to the main tab thingy (dunno the name, default Ctrl+Shift+F7), and the same thing (nothing new is printed)07:22
DansTheManJordan_U: I did it on my previous install, not this one though07:23
sanhumungulous: i dint get you but still there shud be a restore option in ubuntu07:23
chipotlekriskropd: well, should i chown the files to myself first?07:23
chipotlehow do i find out what group i am in?07:23
ryoshihonomobhero: hello how do i install my sound car?07:23
Jordan_UDansTheMan: Reboot and tell me what happens when you use "sudo service lightdm restart" (if that's not too much trouble).07:23
CFHowlettsan   you have a dell?07:23
=== undeclaredx is now known as Guest6507
DansTheManJordan_U: No, all goods :) I just don't want to have to go through another reinstall :P07:24
sanCFHolett: no just my moniter is of dell and that doesnt matter i guess07:24
kriskropdchipotle, you don't have to chown the files... are you moving a /home directory to another drive or somethign else?07:24
DansTheMan(which involves taking out the hard drive, and putting it in another laptop) :P07:24
sanCFHowlett: why what happened07:24
chipotlekriskropd: it is a drive out of my mac laptop, i want to copy it to this larger drive on my ubuntu machine07:25
DansTheManJordan_U: I think it has to do with me installing the medibuntu repositories.07:25
CFHowlettsan DELL has restore creator in the software center - I've used it and it works...07:25
sanJordan_U: is there anyway i can force delete or uninstall those 2 themes they ruined my OS07:25
Jordan_UDansTheMan: If you don't want to spend time on a tangent that's OK, but why do you have to put the hard drive in another laptop to re-install?07:25
DansTheManJordan_U: It's a netbook, has no disc drive, and I have no live USB I can use :P07:26
sanCFHowlett: Thanks anyways but i dont have dell pc i think i will wait for 12.04 release and make a clean install07:26
kriskropdthen yeah, 'sudo cp -r /whatever /mnt/sdb1' will move wherever that drive of yours is to the sdb1 (which i assume is your larger drive)07:26
humungulousDansTheMan: thats what pxe boot is for, or usb07:26
CFHowlettsan   probably a good idea...07:26
sanurfr322g0: is there anyway i can force delete or uninstall those 2 themes?07:26
DansTheManhumungulous: I don't think this netbook supports pxe boot07:26
kriskropdchipotle, you are only copying the files, not modifying them07:26
humungulousDansTheMan: you got a 1gb usb stick07:27
DansTheManBut, I've never tried or set up a pxe boot :P07:27
DansTheManhumungulous: Nope.07:27
chipotlekriskropd: i tried to copy and i'm still getting a permission denied07:27
sanActionParsnip: is there anyway i can force remove those 2 themes?07:27
humungulouswonk wonk07:27
DansTheManJordan_U: Same thing, "restart: Unknown instance:"07:27
Jordan_UDansTheMan: You still have enough of a working system to loop boot an Ubuntu install iso from the internal hard drive :) (but there are no guides that I am aware of that detail this process completely).07:27
humungulousDansTheMan: you got $307:27
DansTheManJordan_U: Is there a way I can go without having to reinstall? :p07:28
kriskropdchiptole, maybe i need more info :)07:28
Jordan_UDansTheMan: Probably.07:28
DansTheManhumungulous: Yes. But this is the second install it's happened to me.07:28
Jordan_UDansTheMan: What if you just run "sudo service lightdm start"?07:28
sanJordan_U: how is it that my grub is running fine and burg is not removed?07:28
chipotlekriskropd: when i copy it, it still says owned by root and i can't access it...07:28
chipotleso then what, kriskropd ?07:28
DansTheManProbability states it will probably happen over and over again07:28
Jordan_Usan: It's only the package which is not removed.07:28
kriskropdchipotle, sudo wont let you move root files around?07:29
sanJordan_U: anyway i can force remove? manually delete files? uninstall? something?????07:29
Jordan_Usan: We may be able to do some ugly hacks to get the packages removed.07:29
chipotlekriskropd: the file i am taking it from isn't a root file; the file was made on an entirely diferent computer and network07:29
sanJordan_U: what does that mean?07:29
kriskropdchipotle, I don't see how that should make the file immovable if it is being accessed by your machine by root07:30
chipotlekriskropd: i moved it but i can't access it because now it is owned by root07:30
Jordan_Usan: First, and hopefully this is all that needs to be done (but not likely) try running "sudo mkdir -p /boot/burg/locale/" then "sudo apt-get -f install".07:30
chipotleso how do i change it to be owned by my user ?07:30
humungulouschipotle: so maniuplate it via sudo07:30
kriskropdchiptole, I'm not sure then, if you can't do it with sudo, something is very weird :P07:30
urfr332gOJordan_U, if it is the ppa install unless it is fragmented and standard remove works or just go into nautilus a root and remove it it is just a version of grub2 is all07:30
step_offsetchipotle: chown07:31
humungulouschipotle: sudo chown <somefile> <youruser>07:31
sanwhat if i delete all such files from my pc? i go to places where it is installed and delete manualy? deleting files willl work? it works in windows sometimes some corrupt software can be manually deleted07:31
DansTheManJordan_U: Do you think Medibuntu is the cause?07:31
Jordan_Uurfr332gO: That sentence did not make sense to me. Could you please rephrase it?07:31
Jordan_UDansTheMan: I doubt it, but it's possible.07:31
mosnowhy does unity2d show 4 workspaces in a 2x2 layout when clicking the workspaces dock icon, but when using the keyboard it is a 1x4 row?07:32
chipotlehumungulous: and can i do that before i copy the files via sudo?07:32
Jordan_Usan: No, the problem you have right now is more with the package manager being in an incosistent state (because of poorly written packages) than any problem with the files installed by the packages.07:32
DansTheManJordan_U: I used this guide to install the repository: http://medibuntu.org/repository.php , instead of the more simpler way using Ubuntu's GUI.07:32
urfr332gOJordan_U, it is normally removed with sudo apt-get purge burg-pc burg-common, or just go to where its at in root and remove it.07:32
humungulouschipotle: i missed the earlier part of the conversation so i lack context07:32
urfr332gOJordan_U, burg is grub 2 in drag basically.07:33
chipotlehumungulous: i have a hard drive from a different machine, different network and different users that i want to copy the entire contents over to my ubuntu machine and specific hard drive...07:33
humungulouschipotle: what kind of filesystem07:33
sanJordan_U: ok but still any way? i tried clean but dint work any way to clean package manager?07:34
humungulouschipotle: do you want to do it over the network or physically cable it in07:34
humungulousim missing all this07:34
Jordan_Uurfr332gO: The problem is that san has packages burg-theme-autumn burg-theme-magic which are half configured. These half configured packages cannot be removed due to errors in the postins / postrm scripts and that is breaking dpkg as a whole.07:34
chipotlehumungulous: both drives are inside my server07:34
Jordan_Usan: Did you see my previous suggestion with mkdir -p?07:34
chipotlehumungulous: hfs+ (mac) to my ext4 fs in the ubuntu box07:34
humungulouschipotle: steps are (1) mount the filesystem using the mount command07:34
humungulouschipotle: (2) copy the files with cp -r07:35
sanurfr332g0: and now i am feeling very guilty why i tried to replace simple grub with some graphical burg07:35
sanJordan_U: yes07:35
humungulouschipotle: (3) then you can umount the foreign filesystem07:35
Jordan_Usan: Did you try it?07:35
humungulouschipotle: (4) then you can change permissions and ownerships of your copied content using chmod and chown as necessary07:35
urfr332gOJordan_U, cool your more experienced here.07:36
DansTheManJordan_U: Damn, same thing :(07:36
doc-saintlyI have a 3tb external drive i'm trying to use as the backup for a DD operation, but it keeps saying permission denied even though I'm using sudo07:36
doc-saintlyAny ideas?07:36
ActionParsnipJordan_U: you can edit the postrm files to be logically ineffective. I believe there are guides for removing stubborn packages. You essentially just have an empty if statement and the set -e07:36
kieppiehi all. how stable/unstable is 12.04? I have a desktop system I want to set up that I'll be using as my primary for a while & need to know if it's stable enough for daily use?07:36
chipotlehumungulous: so one big chown would be fine?07:36
humungulouschipotle: chown -R will recurse07:37
step_offset12.04 is out?07:37
kriskropddoc-saintly, you did mount it first right?07:37
llutz_kieppie: #ubuntu+1 for 12.0407:37
ActionParsnipdoc-saintly: is the dest mounted?07:37
Jordan_UActionParsnip: I know, and I plan to do that next if needed.07:37
kieppiesweet - thanks07:37
sando you know i know how this happened07:37
humungulouschipotle: probably ideally you mount the foreign volume read-only and dont manipulate the contents until youve made your copy07:37
doc-saintlyHrm, I thought dd was at the device level?07:37
sani dint do it purposefully07:37
ActionParsnipJordan_U: cool, glad you are aware. Too much to type on my phone07:38
Jordan_Usan: Looks good. Now try "sudo apt-get remove burg-theme-autumn burg-theme-magic" again.07:38
noodlrI'm using the Unity desktop for Ubuntu 11.10, and for some reason I cannot get the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + T to respond.

I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed on another machine and I use Unity there too, but the keyboard shortcut works there... Anybody have any ideas as to potential causes...?07:38

zykotick9chipotle: i've never mounted an hfs partition in my life, but i've seen mention that journalling must be turned off (using Apple, before you can mount in gnu/linux)07:43
noodlrActionParsnip, does it take terminal profiles?07:43
humungulouschipotle: sudo mount -t hfsplus <dev>07:43
sanJordan_U: Do you want all grub2 files to be removed from /boot/grub?07:43
doc-saintlyllutz_: no idea. following directions mostly. I have a 3tb raid that lost its partition, and the only backup I have is ~13gb smaller than the raid.07:43
chipotleJordan_U: just says thatit is wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc107:43
sanurfr322g0: sudo apt-get purge burg burg-common07:43
humungulouschipotle: sudo mount -t hfsplus <dev> <mountpoint>07:43
ActionParsnipnoodlr: ok well guake is a terminal app that drops from the top on shortcut, you can type a long command, press F12 and it will hide07:43
doc-saintlyso before letting fsck have its way with my raid i was advised to back it up07:43
kriskropdchiptole 'apt-cache search hfs' shows some stuff, could use 'hfsutils' maybe, but like zykotick9, i never messed with HFS+ partitions before07:43
chipotlezykotick9: it mounts automagically in ubuntu, but not manually07:43
sanurfr322g0: ok i admit i installed super boot manager then went to burg then just looked but dint install it then went to themes there i double clicked 1 then 2 BURG themes i just did it to view but it got installed and at that time burg was not installed then i tried installing burg but dint work this is where problem started first i had to install burg then themes07:44
ehsan_Hi today I found the amazing beep command to play a song with given frequencies.because university pc's dont have speakers is there any way that I can listen normal audio (like a music or the system audio) through internal speaker?07:44

sgo11hi, a newbie question regarding mail server. If I setup postfix, can postfix both send and receive email to my mailbox? Do I really need to setup other servers like dovecot? What I want is sending email and receiving email to mailbox. that's all. is only postfix enough for handling this job? thanks.07:44
llutz_doc-saintly: i'm not sure but i think that won't work this way07:44
chipotlehumungulous: that's what i am doing, sudo mount -t hfsplus /dev/sdc1 /osx07:44
chipotleJordan_U: yes, yes, yes07:44
llutz_doc-saintly: create a filesystem on that /dev/sdk and write your gzipped backup into a file07:44
ActionParsnipnoodlr: you can bring it back with F12 and check it, or run more commands etc. Dead handy and supports tabs07:44
chipotleat least according to disk utility in ubuntu07:44
Jordan_Uehsan_: Not with anything close to reasonable quality, no.07:44

humungulouschipotle: sudo mount -t hfsplus -o ro <dev> <mountpoint>07:45
doc-saintlyllutz_: well i was having trouble getting Ubuntu to format it in the first place :\ And, what FS should I use with a 3TB file?07:45
sanJordan_U: Terminal is asking in gui07:45

doc-saintlyActionParsnip: ah, it's done now :) So how would you modify the DD command?07:59
ActionParsnipdoc-saintly: to achieve what?07:59
doc-saintlyto use DD to backup a drive with compression onto the EXT4 FS I just made08:00
doc-saintlyI need to use compression in the stream because the destination drive is slightly smaller than the original. I would also like to be able to track progress :)08:00
Jordan_Usan: Almost certainly yes. And to be sure we can check with qemu. Do you have qemu installed? (if not, "sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm")08:00
Ben64doc-saintly: 3TB is slightly smaller?08:01
ActionParsnipdoc-saintly: if your system uses ext3 you can do all that with partimage08:01
doc-saintlythey're ~13gb off08:01
doc-saintlyActionParsnip: the problem is the partition "disappeared" on my raid08:01
doc-saintlyI want to do a DD backup of it before I try fsck08:01
humungulousdoc-saintly: more appropriate to use cloning/imaging tools for that than dd08:02
sanJordan__U: then08:02
Ben64doc-saintly: its gonna be hugely cpu intensive08:02
ActionParsnipdoc-saintly: then dd_rescue may help. Takes an image of the filesystem. Why didn't you backup BEFORE?08:02
monk13hello all, im sure this is a very common problem but not sure how to fix. I have ubuntu installed on a VirtualBox vm. I wanted to turn off GUI so i did based on some googling: 'sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove'  but it still starts up in GUI login.08:03

sanJordan_U: what is the command for qemu08:04
Jordan_UActionParsnip: doc-saintly: I would recommend GNU ddrescue over dd_rescue (they are not the same). GNU ddrescue is in the "gddrescue" package.08:04
zykotick9monk13: FYI ubuntu 11.10 doesn't use gdm, thus the failure of your command08:04
doc-saintlyActionParsnip: I have a backup of most of the important stuff that is ~2 weeks old08:04
doc-saintlyActionParsnip: the raid was 2.8tb full out of 3tb, and I backed up ~500gb of it to a separate 1tb drive08:04
doc-saintlyacmeinc: the remaining 2.3tb is non-critical videos etc. But I would still like to recover the incremental 2 weeks of data if possible08:05

doc-saintlyand, does gddrescue work if the destination is smaller than the source?08:05
flamengo1Hi. When I try to add-apt-repository I obtain that:  "raise NoDistroTemplateException("Error: could not find a " "   In addition, I can't manage repositories with synaptic (it doesn't open the popup for choosing them)  ... how can I fix?  (oneiric)08:06
allu2doc-saintly: well i guess you could pipe it to tar and compress it08:06
Jordan_Usan: That should bring up a qemu window, and within that window you should see the beginning of a normal boot. It *will* fail to boot completely, because the disk is read only for safety, but if you get past the grub menu you know that grub is working.08:06
zykotick9monk13: sorry i don't understand what that means?08:06
humungulousdoc-saintly: use an integrated tool that does the compression for you as a built in feature08:06

doc-saintlyBen64: but the question is are there any other options? If not - is there any point in backing it up?08:08
humungulousdoc-saintly: tell you the truth videos will not compress they are already incompressible08:08
doc-saintlyhumungulous: indeed, but the destination is only 13gb smaller, out of 3tb08:08
Ben64doc-saintly: it'd be quite hard to get stuff back if the filesystem is unfsckable08:08
doc-saintlyi'm sure there's 13gb to be compressed somewhere in there considering only 2.8tb was used in the raid,08:08
Kartagishow can I make sure network-manager kicks in BEFORE cron does?08:08
humungulousdoc-saintly: you could end up with larger size08:09

crizzyyou mean, removing the global menu or?10:11
crizzyauska: global menu bar can be removed with: sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu appmenu-gtk10:12

mgjAnyone know of a console torrent client that supports magnet links? I've been using rtorrent, but it does not support magnet (at least not out-of-the-box)11:43
Dr_willisIve neer had to install the nightly-build , you could have some extra ppa's enabled or somthing  DansTheMan11:43
ServerSagetheTroy: You'll want to read up on software RAID.  I'd just give you the commands, but I can never remember them off the top of my head.  mdadm is the utility you'll be using.11:44
DansTheManDr_willis: Nup, all that's coming up in the synaptic package manager is the 3.3.90 version :-/11:45
theTroyServerSage: thanks, Ill read up on the HW set up then, is it identical to usb set up? and how badly will it react if one of the usb drives happens to get unplugged? (during the time when there is no write operation in process)11:45
playmanjrib: i'm sorry, but maybe I've been not accurade regarding my setup. this computer that I'm using the IRC on is Win XP, the computer I'm trying to intall that program onto is Ubuntu 10.04 wich has no GUI or browsing capability, therefore it's kinda hard for me to just copy and paste.11:45
melvincvplayman, why not http://goo.gl11:45
jribplayman: 1) ssh to the machine with no gui from your windows machine or 2) grep for the link in the html file you just wgetted or 3) connect to irc on the machine with no gui and send yourself the link that way or 4) use a console browser on the machine with no gui11:47
ServerSagetheTroy: Take a look at http://tinyurl.com/l5ad4y - jump to the mdadm portion.  As for how it will handle a drive being unplugged, it will handle it the same as if a drive dies.  You'll have to use mdadm to bring the drive back into the array when it's plugged back in.11:47
Dr_willisDansTheMan,  all i recall doing was pasteing some stuff from the webupd8 blog site to get gnome0-shell going months ago when i did a clean install.11:47
theTroyServerSage: thanks, Ill try :)11:47
Dr_willismgj,  just googing and saw a mention that --> rTorrent 0.8.7 works fine with magnet links in terms of downloading.11:48
DansTheManDr_willis: Could you please link me to the article?11:48
ServerSagetheTroy: mdadm looks intimidating at first, but it's actually pretty simple once you start digging in.11:48
theTroyServerSage: hope so :)11:49
mgjDr_willis, oh... Google told me you needed to add a patch and recompile from source to enable it. Will look into it, thanks11:49
Dr_willisDansTheMan,  put in 'webupd8' in your browser and check out their tweak guides11:49
playmanmelvincv: thanks for that, I just didint think that would work, but I was wrong and its working. :)11:49
DansTheManDr_willis: I'm look at the site at the moment.11:49
Dr_willismgj,  all the patches i saw mentioned were 2+ yrs old.11:49
Dr_willismgj,  also seen some mention of some sort of 'script' to convert magnet links to normal torrents.11:50
Dr_willisOff to work for me. bye all.11:50
ServerSagetheTroy: Actually, I just found this article that is exactly what you hope to do:  http://tinyurl.com/6eoh6h11:50
theTroyServerSage: sweet :) I didnt stumble on this article while searching, thanks!11:51
playmanjrib: allright thanks for that, just started ubuntu, i'll keep those informations handy. just didint think of ssh, or that I could IRC on it either lol, well thanks again for the help.11:51
ServerSagetheTroy: Happy to help.  You doing RAID0 or RAID1?  That article sets up a RAID0. The steps are pretty much the same for a RAID1, you just change --level 0 to --level 111:52
theTroyServerSage: RAID 0, doesnt make sense to do RAID 1 with flash drives really, but thanks a lot, this is exactly what I needed :)11:53
ZoffixHey. Does google have some kind of spyware in Ubuntu? Weird question, but I just noticed 4kb/s going up, not knowing what it was. I ran `netstat -tunawep` and there were a bunch of `sh` processes apparently connected to and other IP addresses, all owned by Google (according to whois, at least). I killed all those, and I even restarted my network, but I still get a bunch of entries to google with "LAST_ACK" as status. I closed my browser an11:53
Zoffixd I have no idea where else these could be coming from.11:53

Zoffixbam, no one can help you, unless they know what the question is. Makes sense, no?12:08
bamyes yes12:08
bamso I have a server running on ubuntu-server and there is Apache Tomcat running on it12:09
bamI access the server using ssh and then I run Tomcat12:09
bambut I have to stay logged in or Tomcat stops12:10
bam( sorry for my no really good englis )12:10
Zoffixbam, use `screen`12:11
Zoffixbam, to run the tomcat that is.12:11
Zoffixbam, screen -d -m tomcat (or whatever the name is) would start the server and detach screen. Then to return you'd type screen -r. But my memory is foggy, so read the man page (man screen)12:12
bamand I can logout of my server and Tomcat will be still running ?12:13
Zoffixbam, yup12:13
ronsonol_Is there a log of what update manager has installed when?12:14

IceHunterhow long it can take to format to ntfs 1tb external hard drive?12:16
Zoffixl_pottersky, that would put it in background, but the process would still be terminated when you log off the ssh12:16
rajumohZoffix,IceHunter : I think tomcat has a shell script that actually does this in its bin files.. i dont remember the name though..12:18

roasted_Question - this is such a minor thing, but I'm just THAT curious. Why is it when I format a drive in disk utility, I have 2 mb unallocated, while in gparted it leaves 0 mb allocated? What's stranger yet is if I format it with gparted (leaving 0 mb unallocated) and try to add it to my software raid array, it times out and fails, whereas if I format it with disk utility (leaving 2 mb unallocated) it works just fine. Very minor, but I13:53

roasted_ikonia: I had originally formatted my one drive with GUID, and I noticed when I went to edit the file system type, things were wildly different. Instead of linux raid autodetect (0xfd) it now simply said linux raid. The options were simpler, etc. It wasn't until I went to my other drive, stll live in the raid, that I saw it was mbr. so I reformatted the target drive (drive b) as mbr, then 0xfd was available and I set the type as su14:03
escottmi3, i've never done this so I can't give you all the steps. all i can say is that apt needs a list of the files to install and their checksums and then will look into /var/cache/apt/ to see if the files were already downloaded. so what you need to get over to the other machine is the *.deb files and the updated package archive list. and you would put those in /apt. alternately if you can get a bigger disk to do the transfer you could tr14:03
escotty and use apt-mirror14:03
fidelchown_: you arent listening ;)14:03
ikoniaroasted_: GUID is very different14:04

escottmi3, not that i am aware of14:05
roasted_haylo: you're right, but we're talking about a different type of guid in regard to partition table schemes. :)14:06
roasted_ikonia: gotcha. thanks bro.14:06
escottroasted_, ikonia more partitions, larger partitions, and the entry tables are bigger so more can be stored in the entry table, and there is a backup table at the end of the disk14:06
mi3ok then if u had to install updates to an offline pc suggest me what would u do?14:06

justsighdudesIs there a good tutorial on how to set up a secure server? I feel like settings up a chroot for each daemon is a good idea but I have no idea how this stuff works.14:07
=== administrator is now known as Guest57423
ikoniajustsighdudes: it's not a good idea,14:08
escottroasted_, one argument for gpt would be that a raid array might live longer than any single disk in the array and your next disk is likely to be too big for mbr. so if you start with gpt today you can be a consistent gpt all the way through14:08
ikoniajustsighdudes: not all applications can function in a chroot enviornment, some have that configuration built in, others you'd have to build a whole machine chroot just to run a daemon.14:08

playmanikonia: sorry about this, but both /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and /etc/dhcpd.conf are blank, I used to have fully working dhcpd server before the install of the fog program, is that normal?14:12
escottroasted_, there are technical limitations (disk size) that are forcing the move to GPT, but GPT includes many of the best practices (like partition guids that you see with sudo blkid) into the partition table14:13

Guest57423where are you from??14:14
bluefrogplayman, why are you mixing apache conf and dhcp conf?14:14
escottroasted_, the reasons for using gpt on a new disk are decent. the reasons for switching to gpt on a prexisting disk are less compelling. also be very careful to remove the mbr partition if you switch. or create a protective mbr partition14:14

Trevor69420ok i have been trying to convert COMPLETELY to ubuntu to get rid of windows... but i have a music problem... i have imported all my music from iTunes into my ubuntu system... however i have one tiny issue... my itunes purchased songs14:15
MonkeyDust!pm > Guest5742314:15
ubottuGuest57423, please see my private message14:15
Trevor69420has anyone figured a roundabout way to get my iTunes purchases to work in Ubuntu14:16
escottTrevor69420, you probably need to remove the drm from the m4a files14:16
roasted_escott: these are just data disks. I guess I could do it one of two ways. It's a raid. I could either remove drive A, format to GUID, sync up to drive B (still mbr) then remove drive B, format to GUID, sync to drive A. This is assuming I can do that, but in software raid I don't think it would matter.14:17
ikoniaplayman: dhcpd.conf is nothing do to with apache14:17
playmanbluefrog: /etc/dhcp3-server/dhcpd.conf is also blank. what do you mean about mixing? well I have the file/etc/apache2/apache2.conf14:17
ikoniaplayman: and as I've told you https://help.ubunu.com look in the server info for how to setup apache14:17
Trevor69420escott yea thats what i figured... not sure if theres a tool for that that might run on ubuntu14:17
bluefrogplayman, what are you trying to? configure a web server AND configure a dhcp server?14:17
escottroasted_, you can have both gpt and mbr on the same disk (so long as they are consistent) so you might want to try switching with gdisk by just changing the partitiont ables (gdisk can create hybrids)14:18
ikoniaplayman: your problem is you need apache to listen on the right ip address - those two files are nothing to do with that14:18
playmanikonia: I know but I just wanted to check dhcpd.conf and found it strange that the file was empty14:18
roasted_escott: eh, I'd rather just push it all to gpt if mbr offers me nothing but scaling limitations for the future.14:18
ikoniaplayman: fix the problem in hand - which is apache is not listening on the right IP14:18
roasted_escott: as long as software raid can sync an mbr disk to gpt, then I can do 1 drive at a time like that without issue.14:18
escottTrevor69420, i dont believe those tools work on linux. they need the encryption keys that are associated to your itunes accounts14:18
playmanbluefrog: i'm trying to setup fog server14:18
escottroasted_, i would say that if you have a working system not to mess with it. there really isn't much to gain14:19
roasted_escott: it's a system I'm rebuilding, so if I'm going to do it, now is the time.14:19
roasted_escott: otherwise I probably wouldn't care much at all.14:19
playmanikonia: yeah i'm sorry i'm trying to read trough the https://help.ubuntu.com14:19
roasted_escott: then again, even if I move to a larger array, I'll have to set up a new array to begin with. It's not like I can easily port this array over.14:20
roasted_escott: perhaps it's a moot point?14:20
roasted_escott: especially if there's no higher data reliability or speed increase...14:20
jonnyI'm newbie and I need a little help with gnome classic14:21
escottroasted_, it depends on how your array is configured. if you have lvm on top of mdadm you can just add new lvm sectors to a new array14:21
roasted_escott: no lvm is involved14:21
roasted_escott: just a basic mdadm mirror14:21

ValkyrThe problem is with my screen/monitor in KDE. I was trying to adjust the “brightness” setting to something lower using the slider, but when I hit “apply” the monitor seemed to just shut off. I can tell I'm still logged in because my computer is set to logout in 30 seconds if I hit the “power” button once. It logs me out and I can see the startup/login screen just fine. I can also see everything if I log into Gnome Desktop, 14:27

ValkyrIf it were the backlight shutting off, is there a combination of buttons I would press or something to turn it back on?14:33
playmanok I know they are on different networks, I thought that they could still comunicate if told so14:33
escottValkyr, well assuming that the monitor isn't being turned off by dpms, but rather that the backlight is being turned off. then the issue would with your acpi tables. you would have to do some searches for your specific hardware to identify if there is a workaround/update to the kernel acpi tables14:33
M4dH4TT3rif you change 111 to 1 they will be all good14:34
escottplayman, depends on what lies between the subnets, but local services are usually configured to ignore traffic from outside subnets14:34

I'm on Ubuntu 11.10 running GNOME Shell.14:44
playmanbluefrog: yea was starting to look into that, wanted to change the dhcpd.conf but it's blank, and it's there where I can make the ubuntu machine part of the same network. right?14:44
bluefrogplayman, not at all. I believe you may have some things to learn before setting up any kind of servers...14:45

playmanbluefrog: well i'm trying to learn :) i'm just new to the whole server thing. all i'm trying to do now is to setup a fog server to take care of image installing on PC's I have to format. wanted to be able to store the install image on a server and use the ethernet to setup the pc's14:47
justsighdudesikonia: Nevermind. Just discovered /LASTLOG14:47
escottValkyr, it could be that the flashlight is just not bright enough, but that the LCD is still active and updating, but the particular configuration of the display means you absolutely cannot read anything without the backlight14:48
bluefrogplayman, have a look at clonezilla. might be easier for you to understand / put in place14:48
playmanbluefrog: you gotta start somewhere right?14:49
escottValkyr, the fact that this happens when you try and change the backlight is obviously suggestive of a backlight related issue, and the backlight is controlled through ACPI and there be the dragons there14:49

martianIs it possible to launch a gnome-terminal and have its task icon be something custom?14:53
a11ciao a tutti14:53
ikoniakalimojo: depends if they know a security hole14:53
escottValkyr, so its a set of "standards". by the standards the kernel looks up some table in the bios and the table indicates that by putting values x,y,z into register location r the hardware will change settings in some nice way, but half the time those bios tables are wrong (or the hardware is not following the standard) so the kernel says I have 10 backlight levels with register values x1 to x10, but the hardware is not following those va14:53
escottlues the way the kernel thinks it should. so the kernel thinks it is lowering the backlight to the middle level, but its actually turning the backlight off14:53
kalimojodr_willis : are you saying its possible for malicious web sites to compromise firefox on ubunhtu ?14:54
ikoniakalimojo: if the person writing the attack knows of a security hole, sure14:54
CharminTheMooseHow can I change the default 'installing missing plugins' firefox dealio to just use gksudo, rather than gksu? Running a ubuntu-minimal 11.04 install here14:54
escottValkyr, and so you need to find a workaround to deal with your (broken) backlight and handle it differently. the kernel has various boot options including some that will change the acpi backlight handling14:54
ikoniakalimojo: I can break into fort knocks if I know there is a hole in their security14:54
bastidrazorikonia: can i be a part of your team. i can drive the getaway car.14:55
Valkyrescott - so then the workaround would start with something from the bios screen? (booting with F* or something)?14:55
dr_williskalimojo:  worse case user may mess up stuff in their home. but unlikely14:55
ValkyrF8* sorry.14:55
escottValkyr, see http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_make_ACPI_work (although this has more kernel compile related stuff which you dont want to do) http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt14:56
escottValkyr, so the workaround is to figure out if someone has the same laptop as you and has posted a solution14:56
ValkyrThank you!14:56
CharminTheMoosedang, chroot install rather14:56
kalimojoikonia : are you saying firefox is vulnerable ?14:56
escottValkyr, if not then you can modify /etc/default/grub to include some of these kernel boot parameters to try and make the backlight work14:56
ikoniakalimojo: all software "may" be vulnerable the problem is you don't know of a vulnerablility until someone finds it14:57

escottroasted_, you should always have a partition table. very dangerous to not have one15:19

escottroasted_, yes15:19
roasted_escott: I haven't seen a single guide not use that method, I began to wonder why that user told me to use the entire drive...15:19
escottroasted_, but sda1 can be the entire disk15:19
roasted_escott: oh it is, but even still he said use sda not sda1, etc.15:20
roasted_escott: I began hitting up guides to see if that advice he gave showed up and in no guides did it.15:20
martianGuest99805: 'hacking' means knowing a lot about programming, operating systems and their internals, and common programming mistakes. Start by spending a lot of time writing C15:20
escottroasted_, think about what happens if you dont have a partition table and take your data disk and put it in another machine... that machine sees the entire disk as unallocated. one drunken night later you "found" this empty disk and reformatted it, but whatever happened to your previous disk15:21

zykotick9dr_willis: it would be very cool... I'm not a fan of VNC, but a true "screen" plus Xforwarding on SSH would be very cool.15:24
escottzykotick9, it ends up being much the same config as vnc. you run app -> xnest -> true display, but can switch the true display around behind the xnest (or xpra or xmove) instance without everything crashing.15:24
escottzykotick9, its possible that im wrong in that xnest can do this. it may not have all the bits needed to do the switching, but xpra xmove are built to do exactly this15:25

razor85I installed this program called lshell, for limiting shell commands for others. I can't get it removed now. I manually removed the files but it's still showing up when I run the command. What do I do? And of course I tried all the uninstallation methods before that.16:06
dr_willismany printers have related frivers from other models that may work16:06
ikoniaHP is a good example of that16:06

starpile(There are multiple repositories in the targeted directory16:13
escottrazor85, there is sure to be other stuff too. like a man page and the like. also you should note that something like lshell would have to be very carefully constructed to make it work, its basically impossible to do correctly. a single interpreter and the whole security setup falls over16:14
razor85escott: There is entries in /etc/passwd. Sure there are man pages, but those won't really bother me I guess?16:14
razor85escott: It's no problem to remove those entries though.16:14

sun_devilI hooked up printer via usb,  should I go with jetdirect with IP port 9100 or 2nd option of Kodak with device as printer?16:20
Tarkssun_devil probably the kodac option - jet direct works over the network I believe16:21

rebecouple weeks ago I disabled overlay scrollbars, but now I wanna turn it back on, the problem is I don't remember how I disabled it, any hints ?16:21
sun_devilKodak will not let me go forward, but I can with the jetdirect.  Its a Kodak ESP 7 wireless16:22
ikoniasun_devil what make is the printer ?16:22
lamer13300980470sun_devil there are good exploits for both so its 50/5016:22
lamer13300980470sun_devil there are good exploits for both so its 50/5016:22
ikonialamer13300980470: exploits....really, he just wants the printer working, connected by USB,16:23
escottstarsinmypockets, it should although a nice trick to use with rsync and git is to set your exclude-from-file to be your .gitignore and then put .git into your .gitignore16:23
sun_devilI did the jetdirect and it search for drivers. Came up with error  and still wants to search. MIght come up with another error16:24
lamer13300980470if thatds the case either one would do the trick16:24
ikoniasun_devil: have you looked if the printer actually has any linux support ?16:24
starsinmypocketsescott so that git and rsync share an ignore file... which includes .git16:24
sun_devilIts a Kodak, it doen't16:24

sskalnik_how to stop a process?16:27
sskalnik_all I know is "kill <ID>"16:28
escottsskalnik_, suspend or kill?16:28
R4ndZsskalnik_: killall? pkill?16:28
sskalnik_Is there a stop-process command that takes process names?16:28
bluetuga2000hi. could someone tell How i can I copy a directory to another in nautilus, with root permission?16:28
escottsskalnik_, killall16:28
escottbluetuga2000, you would need a root nautilus window (which I would discourage using)16:29
sun_devilI go to the Linux database for new printer and search for Kodak, gives (5) older models that are not ESP 716:29
Picisskalnik_: kill `pidof processname`16:29
bluetuga2000escott It's just to copy a theme to usr/shere/themes16:29
ikoniasun_devil: anything that of a similar period in time / specification ?16:29
Chipzzzsskalnik_: htop has a very convenient way of doing that16:29
Boardinarybluetuga2000, sudo mv -r [directory name here] [destination path here] without brackets16:29
sskalnik_Cool, thanks all16:29
bluetuga2000thanks Boardinary16:30
Boardinarybluetuga2000, thats is cut, copy is cp instead of mv16:30
sskalnik_Is there any reason to not use the "service <foo> stop" syntax and instead type out the whole path? I always use the newer shorter form, but some of the old hands I know type it all out.16:31
Boardinarybluetuga2000, so use cp for copy and mv for cut16:31
sun_devilEasy Share printer doc, driver cups?  ESP 5200 says recommended, another duplex and ditherered?16:31

sun_devilLast time I tried the Easy Share printer-doc.....which did not work16:33
Chipzzzsskalnik_: the terminal grumbles at me when i don't use the service <foo> stop syntax, so I assume they will deprecate the older style in due course16:33
