jen_well...if I can recall, I downloaded the awesome 'blue screen of death' somewhere KMV01 showed me (he's awesome by the way) and it had a bunch of screensavers but I dont remember how I did it00:02
RoastedQuestion - if I want to use something other than Unity as my default environment, yet I want automatic login, how do I select which DE I want since I won't have the option to choose @ login screen?00:03
jen_oh synaptic!00:03
droptonecan one of you guys recommend a twitter client that provides real-time updates for ubuntu 11.10? I hear good things about polly, is it worth the install?00:03
CFHowlettRoasted   you CAN choose at login - click on the gear00:03
RoastedCFHowlett, right - but how would I do that with automatic login to a specific user account?00:03
jen_but then again I dont know what package to get00:04
SlothScriptSo my issue, currently, is that when I boot my computer grub will not start. If I hold shift, I get a message "Grub Loading.." but then the screen essentially shuts off with the message "Out of Range" and it changes resolution. After that, it boots to Ubuntu. I am currently unable to access my Windows 7; does anyone have any ideas?00:04
jen_so what is the package for screensavers on synaptic?00:04
CFHowlettRoasted   aaah, different question.  Sadly, IDK as I still use 10.04.  ask the channel about setting default DE00:04
RoastedCFHowlett, nevermind, it looks like it still holds the last one I logged in as. I don't recall 11.10 doing that. I'm on 12.04 now (wrong chat, just realized, shoulda been in ubuntu+1 for that)00:04
RoastedCFHowlett, but nonetheless, fixed! :D00:05
ActionParsnipRoasted: the last session is remembered for each user00:05
Toph2when I run htop in a terminal, it occupies the terminal,,, can I start and run another terminal for other tasks while htop is running?00:05
CFHowlettToph2   yes00:06
upsetHelp me please! I'm begging you! Pinta just crashed and corrupted my project. How do I get it back?! Isn't there a bak somewhere??00:06
vallorToph2: of course -- this is Unix, it's multiprocessing and multiuser :)00:06
tannerstejen_, i think xscreensaver is fairly popular.  I haven't personally tried it yet00:06
ActionParsnipToph2: sure, press CTRL+ALT+T00:06
jen_yeah I have xscreensavers but there are a bunch just missing from then tannerste00:06
Toph2indeed,, thanks all00:06
ActionParsnipupset: use your data backups will be a great way00:06

upsetPlease, does anyone know how I can repair this file or get an older version back?!00:07
ActionParsnipupset: how long have you had the project going?00:07
upsetActionParsnip: Three days. I've been opening and closing and saving often00:08
ActionParsnipupset: so you will have backed it up, right? to a USB storage or a different PC, or a DVD or such...00:08
upsetActionParsnip: Obviously if I did I would not come here00:08
ActionParsnipupset: why did you not make a backup?00:09
ZaitzevIf i do this, will it find all rars in subfolders and unpack the files IN those subfolders? : find . -iname "*.rar" -exec unrar {} \;00:09
upsetActionParsnip: That's NOT an answer to my question00:09
ActionParsnipupset: unless you made a backup the file will be gone as data recovery apps like foremost will simply recover the bad file00:10
upsetActionParsnip: It's not deleted00:10
upsetIt's just corrupted00:10
SHOVELLis there a way to correct a logical partition ending beyond the end of the physical drive?00:10
ActionParsnipupset: yes, so there is no way to restore the data as you made no backup00:10
upsetActionParsnip: There are no earlier versions anywhere?00:10
ActionParsnipupset: you could try an fsck on the partition00:11
Airtreckthere is no "system restore" in linux :)00:11
ActionParsnipupset: not unless the software you made the file in makes them, no00:11
upsetActionParsnip: Fffffffffff00:11
ActionParsnipupset: make backups and you have no issue00:11
upsetActionParsnip: I'm furious00:11
jen_oh this has been bugging me too but I totally forgot about it, how can you adjust the settings so if you have one window up, you can click on the second one but the other window is still behind it,00:11

SHOVELLActionParsnip, you are a valued comunity resource tyou dont deserve whay upset just did00:12
KotusSHOVELL, if you delete a partition and recreate it, begining at the exact same byte then it will be ok, all you have to do is resize2fs it somehow, be carefool resize2fs takes a size parameter00:13
SlothScriptActionParsnip: Do you happen to have any ideas on a grub menu not loading, even with holding shift; I've purged and reinstalled, and some other obvious solutions.00:13
ActionParsnipZaitzev: looks ok, just watch for duplicated folders coming out of the archives as they may overwrite each other or similar, not sure where the extracte files would go tbh00:13
Airtreckbtw, hi again ActionParsnip , danileigh79 spoke nicely to me about you. So hi!00:13
ActionParsniphi Airtreck :)00:13
ActionParsnipZaitzev: i'm sure the guys in #bash will be able to help a little :)00:14
ZaitzevActionParsnip: But the syntax looks fine? Guess I could run it and see what happens.. I asked because I wasn't sure if that's the "best" way to do it, or even the right way00:14
ZaitzevHm, guess I can start hanging out there as well ;)00:14
KotusSHOVELL, i used parted to create the partition00:14
ActionParsnipZaitzev: you could copy a subset of the files out to a test folder and see what happens00:14
SHOVELLKotus, the other issue is that the logical partition contains the swap "drive"00:15
ZaitzevActionParsnip: Yeah that's what I was gonna do, don't want to mess up the originals or anything ;p00:15
=== sk3ptic_1ne is now known as _amoeba_

beenohanohow do I change the system resolution when no proprietary driver is installed and xrandr only shows one resolution?  I have an old desktop with integrated intel 845 which is buggy so the Ubuntu team sets it for only one resolution.00:23
ActionParsnipSlothScript: configure your OSes to use the same swap partition, then delete the other 2 and either create data partitions in them, or resize the other partitions into the free space. I suggest you take a full backup in case of catastrophe. You will be modifying your drive in a big way00:23
ActionParsnipbeenohano: what GPU?00:24
Super_DogSlothscript:   You can use Gparted...  That will help you modify / delete your swap partitions... Please back up before use though...00:24
Gyesbeenohano, start with cvt 1600x1200 60, then xrandr --newmode "the result from cvt", then xrandr --addmode 1600x1200_60.00 VGA100:25
beenohanoActionParsnip: integrated intel graphics (845G/GL)00:25
SlothScriptActionParsnip, Super_Dog - This being the first time I have ever done any direct editing to my partition; is there any guide which would talk in more detail as to what I need to do?00:25
beenohanoGyes: that doesn't work with the old intel 845g/gl.  I can't add any modes.00:26
ActionParsnipbeenohano: and the output of:  lsb_release -sc00:26
beenohanohere is some explanation of why only one resolution is allowed:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Mavericki8xxStatus00:27
SlothScriptActionParsnip, Super_Dog - I can search for the guide myself; I just am really at a loss of what to even look for because my understanding is so limited.00:27
beenohanoI'm wondering if it's possible to change that one allowed resolution00:27
SHOVELLis there a way to manually modify a partition table?00:28
ActionParsnipSlothScript: if you look in /etc/fstab   you will see how swap is mapped, choose a swap partition and make that the same for all the install OSes.00:28
Super_DogSlothscript:  You can load and "look" at your drives with GParted.  Do you know how to install GParted in Ubuntu?00:28
SHOVELLie nano or other text editor00:28

CacheMoneydoes anyone know how to make the text in XChat larger?  Zoom in?00:29
ActionParsnipbinger: do you have java installed?00:29
Super_DogI can walk you through it if you're that new to Ubuntu...00:29
SlothScriptI have installed it yes;00:29
AirtreckSlothScript: use your exact words to describe what you want to do, you will find beginner guides. Also take notes on paper. Also backup everything and make a map of files you have. The guide will ask you to use a botting disk/usb00:29
bingerActionParsnip, yes I do.00:29
SlothScriptI am not so much new to Ubuntu in general, but the partitioning; and the core of it, I am quite new there.00:30
GyesCacheMoney, isn't it in the preferences?00:30
Gaming4JCAre there any tools like UnFreeze (to turn a batch of photos into an animated .gif) for Ubuntu?00:30
SlothScriptMay I ask what impact having 3 swaps opposed to the one that is needed will have on my system?00:30
Super_DogSloth:  Upon up Gparted.... look.... Don't touch or Apply anything.  You will need your sudo password to get in there....00:30
AirtreckSlothScript:  i am new too, but i managed to patition with guides, not that hard. Try to read the guide carefully and take notes00:30
bingerActionParsnip, am thinking it could be a PATH issue but am not sure00:31
CacheMoneyGyes: Couldn't find anything relating to zoom or text size.. Seems like it should be in there :/00:31
Gyescan you change the font ?00:31
Gyesit must be saying FreeSans 9, make it 1200:32
SlothScriptThe reason I ask, for the real impact, is because the issue I am trying to fix right now has to do with Grub; and if they are two unique issues I'd like to tackle grub first, however, if they contribute to one another than obviously it is best to take both at once.00:32
CacheMoneyGyes: Yes, good call.  Thanks!00:32
Super_DogAre you multi-booting Sloth?00:32
AirtreckSlothScript: how my OS's you have on your system?00:32
Super_DogSloth:  To my knowledge - multiple swap partitions aren't a big problem.  Maybe just a waste of a bit of hard drive space depending on your configuration...00:33
SlothScriptSuper_Dog, Airtreck: I have dual-booted; Windows7 + Ubuntu 11.10; However, grub menu will not appear; holding shift brings the message "Loading Grub.." but then a message which says somethign to the extent of "Input is out of range" and changes the screen resolution comes up and it boots directly into Ubuntu.00:33
SlothScriptSuper_Dog, Airtreck: Essentially, through any efforts thus far, I have been unable to boot into Windows 7 since I've installed Ubuntu 11.10;00:34
Airtreckdid you install ubuntu after linux?00:34
Super_DogGrub can be a little tricky.  My problems with Grub and Windows 7 went away with the new Grub 2 in the 11.04/11.10 editions of Ubuntu...00:34
SlothScriptI had Windows 7 installed, and used the main download from Ubuntu to install 11.10 with the default partitioning.00:35
Airtreckwell that pretty much "deleted" windows00:35
bingerActionParsnip, any other thoughts on what might be happening?00:35
Super_DogI always use "manual".  It is actually easier that way... I've got like 10 systems with multi-boot...00:35
Airtreckwow 10 !00:35
SHOVELLthere is no way to manualy correct the size of a partition without gparted(which has an error?00:35
Super_DogYour windows actually isn't deleted...00:35
Super_DogUnless you did something really goofy... Can you see your NTFS in Gparted?00:36
SlothScriptAirtreck, Windows isn't deleted. I can see the partition in my drive; I just don't have the boot menu00:36

doc-saintlyI'm currently copying about 300gb of data from one disk to another, and there are some errors along the way that i've had to skip. It got tedious so I hit "skip all", is there a place I can look to see all the files that were skipped?00:36
ActionParsnipbinger: not sure, you may need to run: sudo update-alternatives --config java00:37
Airtreckis it possible your system was initially a linux system that had windows installed? then the ubuntu over windows00:37
hoshi411because of this one package errors it prevents me from installing anything else00:37
Super_DogSloth:  But you can boot windows right now or no?  Grub or any other way?00:37
hoshi411i tried dpkg --purge <package>00:38
SlothScriptNo. Grub menu does not load; I do not know how else I could boot it.00:38
hoshi411but that would not get rid of it00:38
AirtreckSuper_Dog: No he can't. Installing linux in default keeps windows, but you're not able to use it00:38
Super_DogOK.... Would you like to at least get back to booting windows?00:38

biosystemalteredGood night people. I have a problem with youtube, the screen is smaller, I'm using google chromium browser. What do I fix this?00:47
Airtreckthe problem with windows is that the grub only sees ubuntu. You can't fix grub through windows00:47
AgamemnonZQuestion: Is it be conceivable that ATI and/or NVIDIA would ever open-source their drivers? If so, should we create a petition to urge them to do so?00:47
AgamemnonZwidewake: good;  also it is ps -x (with a space before the -) this should work00:48
Seven_Six_TwoAgamemnonZ, highly unlikely. Not worth the effort.00:48
Airtreckgrub is something beyond windows in lamest terms00:48
Super_DogI have fixed these situations MANY times by first fixing windows and then installing Ubuntu properly (manually.... :-))00:48
widewakeCFHowlett,  this is what im getting for ps -x Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? , not sure what that means00:48

booleanwidewake: man ps for more info00:48
AirtreckSuper_Dog: how did you fix windows?00:48
SlothScriptOkay; so what I am asking is the proposed solution is to download a windows image; repair windows from that so that using windows boot loader I can get into windows, and then reinstalling ubuntu manually?00:48
Super_DogGrub and Windows MBR live in the same "space" so to speak...  Grub is awesome when it's configured correctly...00:48
Seven_Six_TwoAgamemnonZ, because they make a lot of money selling proprietary solutions, and a large part of that is algorithms00:49
CFHowlettSlothScript   actually, you shouldn't need to reinstall ubuntu.00:49

Super_Dog1) Boot Windows from disc and let it run an installation repair 2) Fix with re-install of Ubuntu manually.   (Grub automatically sees and recognizes Windows installs including XP, Vista, and 7.)00:50

AirtreckSuper_Dog:  your computer had manual or default linux over windows installation?00:51
hoshi411so how do you get apt-get to stop trying to install failed packages???00:51

SlothScriptOkay; so I am currently downloading the image for Windows 7. Burn a bootCD from that. Installation Repair; then how would I go about fixing grub from there? I mean, theoretically should I be able to boot from either windows or ubuntu once that has happened?00:52
widewakeboolean,  networking, internet memory00:52
Seven_Six_Twohoshi411, can you run in a terminal    uname -a      and paste the results here please.00:52

dave_nullwhy does echo give me a blank line when I try something like "date > today.txt ; echo < today.txt" ? According to tutorial it should output the date.02:08
Fuegoit'l write not print02:09
SwedeMikedave_null: echo doesn't work like that, you can't pipe stuff to echo and expect it to do anything.02:10
SwedeMikedave_null: you have to use cat.02:10
StepNjumpI have natty here. My time never switched automatically. Did the time change automatically in newer versions?02:11
dave_nullit gives a blank line even if I don't pipe. I go exactly by the tutorial02:11
SwedeMikedave_null: yes, echo gives you a blank line regardless of what you pipe to it.02:11
SwedeMikedave_null: echo will type the first argument on the terminal, nothing else.02:11
canthus13How do I go about recovering the encryption key for my home folder? I'm about to wipe my root drive. root is a separate partition from /home02:12
SwedeMikedave_null: or actually, all arguments.02:12
dave_nullstrange, this is exactly what's in Linux Phrasebook. The guy redirects date's output to a file, then does echo < file.txt and according to him it prints it to stdout02:13
SwedeMikedave_null: well, I'd say it's wrong.02:14
SwedeMikedave_null: I've been doing unix since 1994 or so, and I would never have expected echo to do anything with stuff piped to it.02:14

DraconicusI run a heavily customized Xfce-based desktop. We're not talking about Unity here.02:18

DraconicusLightDM pulled the gnome-session for Xfce without issues and as I said, Compiz was working splendidly. I restarted X and suddenly Compiz decided it didn't feel like working anymore.02:19
Draconicusfishee: I know nothing about it, but by the sound of it that would probably be pretty unfeasible. Can you reverse the encryption? Are you encrypting the entire disk or just a directory?02:20
[P]3pafvyvasci sta qualcuno?02:20
ubottu[P]3pafvyvas: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.02:20

fisheeDraconicus: It's an entire disk, LVM with encryption on a default ubuntu installation.  seems the 256 key takes a lot of processor time while transferring large files between disks... was wondering if the 128 would be faster/less processor intensive02:21
Draconicusfishee: I guess that would probably make sense, but I think you're probably pretty well stuck that way. I would be impressed if one could transition from one encrypted environment to another without removing encryption first...02:22
Draconicusfishee: Remember, I am not an expert. I would google "changing encryption methods" or some such02:22

slothscriptsI am trying to repair my Windows 7 install, so that I can boot into Windows as grub is not functioning properly. I created a recovery disc; and ran "start-up recovery" or whatever from the disc on start-up. There was no apparent effect from it. Any suggestions?03:12

StepNjumpslothscripts: Have you tried fixmbr command ?03:13
orionsonofneptungot it03:13
slothscriptsStepNjump: I have not. It's a windows command?03:13
[P]3pafvyvassacarlson: I discovered that I have to install the FTDI drivers, but how do I?03:14
StepNjumpslothscripts: yes it is... YOu can't log on to windows right?<03:14
slothscriptsCorrect. But I now have a recovery/installation disc so I can run command prompt through it.03:14

sacarlson[P]3pafvyvas: I'm not sure03:15
slothscriptsStepNjump: Is there more to the command than "fixmbr" that I will require; if it is going to work?03:16
orionsonofneptunok now for the love of god how do i remember the channels im adim of please03:16
dr_willisorionsonofneptun: take notes?03:17
[P]3pafvyvassacarlson: I have to change the kernel apparently03:17
StepNjumpYes, run this repair disc from Windows and run the fixmbr command in the pseudo DOS there... That will OVERWRITE the grub in the MBR but then your ubuntu will no longer boot up from Grub as grub in the MBR will be gone so you will have to go in ubuntu using a pendrive and then fix your grub from there.. There is a command but I forget what it is.. something like grub-update or something along those03:17
orionsonofneptunhow do i highlite a message to webnet03:17
orionsonofneptunim takin notes now son03:17
slothscriptsOkay, but that command should permit me to run windows again?03:18
orionsonofneptunand i keep writing the dang notes wrong03:18
dr_willisorionsonofneptun:  im not clear on how this is related to ubuntu support03:18
[deXter]Hi all, are there any downsides to installing the mainline kernels from Precise, in Natty?03:18
StepNjumpslothscripts: Fixmbr should reinitailize your boot sector to Windows default... then you will be able to boot into your win partition.03:18
orionsonofneptunim just trying to connect with web net then get out sorry03:18
slothscriptsSounds awesome! Thank you so much! If I'm not back within a while it means it worked and you have saved me! :)03:18
StepNjumpOr try to do grub-update or update-grub from ubuntu first to see if it will detect your windows partition first03:19
slothscriptsI've tried prior.03:19
slothscriptsNo luck :(03:19
orionsonofneptuni cant remember our channels but i remember i can find him here03:19
dr_willis[deXter]:  id be impressed if it worked. to he honest with you.03:19
slothscriptsThank you very much for your help!03:19
[deXter]dr_willis, I've done it before without any issues, but I just want to know if I was just plain lucky or are there any real drawbacks to this?03:19
StepNjumpnot fixmbr yet right slothscripts03:19
dr_willisorionsonofneptun:  you can do a /whois nickname03:20
[[thufir]]first dar command (stolen from dargui):  /usr/bin/dar -c "/home/thufir/Desktop/videos_201203112007" -B "/tmp/dargui-root//dargui.batch.3" -v -X "videos_20120311200.*.dar"    does this seem correct? I want to add -p so that it only creates one slice at a time,however.  plus, it seems to peg the cpu and cause overheating.03:20
StepNjumpIf it's important for you to log in your win, try the fixmbr, it's your best bet03:20
StepNjumpIt's always worked for me slothscripts03:20
slothscriptsThat's what is most important right now; to log into it without having to reinstall the operating system; I will try it now.03:20
slothscriptsThank you :)03:21
AmgoHi all03:22
StepNjumpslothscripts: Try to backup your ubuntu data first in case you might have to reinstall your ubuntu after running fixmbr cuz you will not be able to go back to ubuntu after that unless you use a pendrive and you are familiar with the CLI to cd into the proper linux partition and mount it. Its simple but if you dont know how, would be easier for you to back up your ubuntu home folder first and reinstall03:23
StepNjumpin the right partition from windows again. but there is more than one way to skin the cat. good luck03:23
szalStepNjump: reinstall *buntu after fixmbr? you gotta be kidding..03:25
szalStepNjump: the only thing that needs to be reinstalled in that case is the Grub03:26
[P]3pafvyvassacarlson: I put the kernel and now I find in the directory / dev/ttyUSB003:26
sacarlson[P]3pafvyvas: cool03:26
Amgowhat that mean?03:26
hydrox24_Amgo: what does what mean?03:28
ubuntuok -> I have screwwed up. I had Win 8  installed on one partition and had Ubuntu installed in the other. Whenever I logged in to the PC, I used to get the default ubuntu bootloader screen in purple (GRUB or LILO?). That used to have Windows enumerated as Windows recovery console (/sdaX) which I used to click to go on to Win8. Fast forward to today. I grew tired of Win8 and deleted the whole partition and put Wn XP on it. Now m,y comp doesn03:29
ubuntu't boot up at all?.. Because the Linux MBR/bootloader doesn't know the start-up point?03:29
[P]3pafvyvassacarlson: we made a step forward, now almost.03:29

hydrox24_ubuntu: do you know which partition is you boot partition?03:30
ubuntuhydrox24_,  for the ubuntu install?03:30
hydrox24_no, overall. There should be a partition with a boot flag03:30

blendedbychriswhat's the lesser of two evils… running dotdeb stuff with debian or running ubuntu server03:32
rbrooksthen run grub2 install, then create config03:32
blendedbychris(so one gets newer packages)03:32
rbrooksthen reboot should work03:32

rbrookswin8 will overwrite grub2 must be installed first usually03:37
Super_DogUbuntu replaces the MBR with a GRUB install.  Grub knows all....  Actually GRUB is the absolute best way to set up multi-boot machines now...03:37
Super_DogI prefer loading Windows, then GRUB...03:37
Super_DogIf Windows 7 or 8 ever gets hosed, use Startup Repair.  I would recommend making images and system recovery CD's for any critical windows platforms...03:38
rbrookswhy wouldnt fast php be lts?  wierd...03:38
Super_DogUse CloneZilla and big external hard drives for any Linux distro you have....03:38

hydrox24_Super_Dog: he's already in a live-CD env ready to go03:41
ubunturbrooks, I think what you suggested must work - reinstall GRUB?03:41
hydrox24_ubuntu: so can you can't boot into windows, but can you boot into ubuntu?03:41
rbrooks1st mount /boot paartition03:41
ubuntuhydrox24_, no i cant03:41
ubuntuhydrox24_, can't boot into eithert03:42
hydrox24_ok, so I would go with reinstalling grub03:42
rbrooksmkdir /mnt/whatever then mount your /boot partition03:42
hydrox24_ubuntu: so run the "fdisk -l" (as root)03:42
ubuntuhydrox24_, Allrite03:42
ubuntuhydrox24_, rbrooks, but this can be done off the liveCD?03:42

hydrox24_ubuntu: that's windows for you, just because most users won't notice of course03:49

hydrox24_ubuntu: OK, run "sudo grub-install /dev/sda"03:56
hydrox24_ubuntu: that should do the trick03:56
hydrox24_ubuntu: STOP03:57
hydrox24_ubuntu: wait a second03:57
ubuntuhydrox24_, hmm - I wouldn't want to run terminal commands just like that - unless I know what it does03:57
sacarlsonPickleface: it may be a good idea to keep another sudo account that you don't modify so that if this happens again you will have the power to easy fix it03:57
Super_Dogubuntu:  you sure you had a running install of WinXP.... don't remember...  don't point to winxp partition if you're not sure... point to the working os.03:57
ubuntuhydrox24_, ah ok03:57
ubuntuSuper_Dog, point noted, maybe I'll just point to the Linux partiton then?03:58
rbrookshey you should mount /boot you do that?03:58
hydrox24_ubuntu: OK so, run: "sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt"03:58
sacarlsonroasted: I thought openssh was just a lib,  there are many things tied to it,  maybe apache2?03:58
hydrox24_ubuntu: just to clarify, that should be your ubuntu root partition03:58
ubunturbrooks, Explanation of what  that does?03:58
rbrooksdo what hydrox24_ said that is correc03:59
ubuntuhydrox24_, Yeah I got that - but lets see what rbrooks chimes in with03:59
ubunturbrooks,  all righty then03:59
tyler_dokay, so I installed bumblebee, and now my graphics resolution is set to extremely low... would like some help getting it back up there please03:59
ubuntuhydrox24_,  Done04:00
hydrox24_ubuntu: once you've run that and it has worked (you can check by listing /mnt to see if your files are there) "ls /mnt"04:00
rbrooks#grub2-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda  #DO NOT TYPE THIS04:00
hydrox24_has it worked??04:00
rbrooksthat should install grub2 what u think?04:00
ubuntuhydrox24_,  yep it did04:00
roastedsacarlson: I'm just trying to reboot the service... I Got it though, its still an /etc/init.d command04:00
hydrox24_rbrooks: I think that that is right, but if grub2-install isn't availbale grub-install is fine04:00
sacarlsonroasted: there are many services under openssh, like sshd,  apache2 ....04:00
rbrooksok yes...04:01
rbrooks#grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda  #DO NOT TYPE THIS04:01
ubuntuhydrox24_, rbrooksguys - so what next ?04:01
hydrox24_sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda04:01
roastedsacarlson: I thought there was one way to just reboot the entire ssh system...04:01
hydrox24_ubuntu: and that should be it!04:01
ubuntuhydrox24_,  shouldnt  it be /dev/sda6?04:01
sacarlsonroasted: oh you want to restart sshd server?04:01
Super_Dogubuntu:  no.... that would be bad...04:02
roastedsacarlson: yes04:02
hydrox24_ubuntu: grub will autodetect the boot partition, you're just pointing it to the right disk04:02
ubuntuhydrox24_, hmm sometimes this overwhelms me -> and I'm a CS major :(04:02
rbrooks#grub-mkconfig -o /mnt/boot/grub2/grub.cfg #this might not work...04:02

ubuntuhydrox24_,  rbrooks all-rite then04:02
rbrooksthat just generates a config so put it anywhere04:03
ubuntuubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda04:03
ubuntuInstallation finished. No error reported.04:03
hydrox24_rbrooks: what are you doing???04:03

rbrookswell i think the grub2 dir04:03
ubuntuhydrox24_,  Looks fine04:03
hydrox24_rbrooks: I don't think that jazz is needed.... is it?04:03
rbrooksthe config yes04:04
rbrooksthat will aotodetect and create config04:04
ubunturbrooks, hmm - and where is this grub2 config file created04:04

orionsonofneptunanyone know what to check in ubuntu 11.10 to find out why wifi card dont work04:06
hydrox24_rbrooks: should ubuntu reboot before trying that?04:06
hydrox24_orionsonofneptun: try "additional-drivers" under system settings04:06
rbrooksno then he will need to start over and make config anyway04:06
hydrox24_orionsonofneptun: see if there is a proprietary driver for your card there04:06
ubuntuorionsonofneptun, First off I'd check ifconfig and last few mesgs in dmesg04:06
hydrox24_rbrooks: OK thats fine04:06
rbrooksit is pretty safe04:07

willijs3__Does anybody here know about Ubuntu Studio and iPod support?04:16
rbrookshave live cd loading off grub2 :D04:17
ubottuFor information on how to sync and add tracks to your iPod, see the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPodHowto - For the iPhone and the iPod Touch, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone - See !RockBox for information on liberating your iPod04:17
hydrox24_willijs3__: Even normal ubuntu has good iPod support now04:17
UbuntunubHey everyone!  I have a question about crontab again.  Man page isn't really answering it.  In this example -->               0,30 16 1-7 * *   test $(date +u) -eq 7 && /bin/sample                    <--- What is the +u and the q following the -e doing?04:17
dr_willis+u is an option to the date command04:18
blendedbychriswhat's it mean when i do dpkg --get-selections and it says deinstall ?04:18
UbuntunubYes, but I'm not seeing what the +u option is actually adjusting.04:18
Barridusdr_willis, any idea what will work for me then with ntfs?04:18
dr_willis-eq is a bash test statement04:18
willijs3__Yeah, it's just not recognizing my ipod when I plug it in. It was fine when I was using normal ubuntu, but i recently switched to studio.04:19
dr_willisBarridus:  use windows. there are some windows live cds out u belive to fix things04:19
hydrox24_Ubuntunub: look at the -u option in the manpage for "date"04:20
Barridusdr_willis, something like fsck won't be of use?04:20
dr_willisif there are any ntfs repair tools out the ntfs3g hompage may mention them04:20
previous_ubuntu_hydrox24_, rbrooks, Yay - it worked!04:21
dr_willisBarridus:  never nituced a fsvk.ntfs command04:21
hydrox24_Barridus: fsck is not for ntfs unfortunately04:21
rbrooksfact: you can run grub2-mkconfig off fc16 live cd w/o chroot04:21
hydrox24_previous_ubuntu_: great, glad it worked04:21

previous_ubuntu_hydrox24_, rbrooks -> I got the grub screen on bootup - however, I have this pblm now . It shows the windows error recovery screen option (last one) - > however nothing happens on choosing it. I'm guessing it doesn't know abt Win XP -> as it was only aware of Win 8 at that point04:22
rbrooksprevious_ubuntu_, glad to hear it now i woder how the config file will look compared to one on system...  also now check /etc/default/grub04:22
previous_ubuntu_How do I make GRUB2 aware of my Win XP installation, now?04:22
ActionParsnipwillijs3__: there is ifuse, it treats the ipod as a normal usb drive, not sure if you can access stuff on it as you expect. Apple is always weird, causes a tonne of issues. best avoided imho04:23
rbrooksthis is simple04:23
ActionParsnipprevious_ubuntu_: run:  sudo update-grub   should do it04:23
rbrooksrun grub-mkconfig command it will all be sorted04:23
previous_ubuntu_ActionParsnip, rbrooks, 2 diss commands :P04:23

ved_a very good morning to all of you04:25
previous_ubuntu_rbrooks, Anyway - I went with your solution and it remade the cfg file04:25

rbrooksi see update-grub2 also04:25

ved_it happens with gnome only not with kde04:31
sacarlsonPickleface: I missed the method you used to create a new account04:32
Picklefacesacarlson: went to user accounts on the guest account, gave my root pw and it let me make a new one, then I deleted my old admin account, a few minutes later I get a error saying both have failed04:33
dontputActionParsnip, this is the link: http://paste.ubuntu.com/879881/04:33
dontputplease check it04:34
Picklefacethen I reboot, see my main account gone, new one there , I did not set a pw for the new one, and its asking for one, so right now im back on the guest account.......04:34
sacarlsonPickleface: I don't think I would have deleted the account I would have just create a 2nd admin, but I guess it's too late now04:34
xrfanghi, where is the default system PATH set?  it seems nothing is set in /etc/profile or /etc/bash.bashrc?04:34
Picklefacesacarlson: yeah lol, what should I do now though?......04:35
sacarlsonPickleface: I take it you now deleted the only working admin account so you will have to create another by boot into recovery04:35
ActionParsnipdontput: i've only use samba with locally defined users like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/879882/04:36
hydrox24_xrfang: just run "echo $PATH"04:36
Picklefacesacarlson: uh, can you tell me how to do that ?04:36
ActionParsnipxrfang: default is set in /etc/environment04:36
sacarlsonPickleface: at what point?  boot into recovery?04:36
xrfanghydrox24_, I know that... what I want is to find out where it is set, and I want to add another path to the list,04:37
xrfangI would prefer to make it system wide, not using ~/.profile etc.04:37
Picklefacesacarlson: how do I boot into recovery ? then make a new account from there ?04:37
ActionParsnipxrfang: you can add to the path by adding to ~/.bashrc   something like:   export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/folder04:37
dontputActionParsnip, actualy my Share is now ok, but just the user with their home profile access. Im stuck to that part04:37
xrfangActionParsnip, as I said, would like to make it system wide...04:38
sacarlsonPickleface: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode04:38
hydrox24_xrfang: you have to edit your ~/.bashrc file and add an export command to the end of the file04:38
ActionParsnipxrfang: as I said, the default is set in /etc/environment04:38
ActionParsniphydrox24_: bashrc is only for that user, xrfang want's it system wide04:38
hydrox24_export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/scripts/folder/04:38
Picklefacesacarlson: okay then what?04:38
dr_willisgrep files in etc to find PATH. :)04:39

grayhatpythonnot enough?05:14
hydrox24_grayhatpython: that's way more than enough05:16
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, so your limited to a iso loaded that can have a persistent, but that persistent will fill up after awhile and is not easily cleaned, really not cleanable for most.05:16
ye_CFHowlett: OK , I just wonder if there are documentations that introduce the gnome configuration file?05:16
CFHowlettye_   sorry, but IDK ... I'm sure there is somewhere.  Perhaps someone else knows?05:17
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, you would be better with a full install say like a 8 gig usb that will run like a HD although a little slower. Your not looking for a install usb right?05:17
ChorvusAh, fixed my problem. Adapters were down. `ifconfig -a` helped me find their adapter identifiers >:}05:17

GhostWolfi can boot into my windows hdd fine but i can't select or get to choose the recvery section05:19
CFHowlettGhostWolf   would this be a wubi installation by any chance?05:19
CacheMoneyActionParsnip:  Wow.  Thanks for all the help tonight05:19
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, did you miss waht I said about the persistent. You can actually make a as large as you want persistent partition, depends on the usb. I think what your missing is the knoledge of the limitations of a usb loaded with other then a full install.05:19
grayhatpythonFyodorovna: no need of install usb just a usb itself like hdd.05:20

CFHowlettVeritas242   system>administration>login screen05:20
GhostWolfCFHowlett, i don't get that far into the boot of my computer. i get to the 2nd page of the boot section for the mobo. like first page shows what hard drives are connected and then second page shows bunch of other info. it stops at that page05:21
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, then you would do a full install make sure the usb is big enough, you would install with any cd, even a custom one likr e remastersys burn.05:21
=== webnet is now known as boten_anna
CFHowlettGhostWolf   is this a wubi installation?05:21
Veritas242I've read that elsewhere, but being new to Ubuntu I don't know how to get there05:21
grayhatpythonFyodorovna ok i don't want persistent i will copy data  to some other usb key05:21
GhostWolfCFHowlett, nope its a full install of 11.o4 haven't been having any issues since i had to reinstall 11.04 cause 11.10 has bugs in java05:22
CFHowlettVeritas242   that's the sequence in 10.04 - might be different for you...05:22
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, a full ibnstall does not a have a persistent it has the regular OS and runs a s such, and you can offload to another.05:22
=== boten_anna is now known as webnet
grayhatpython Fyodorovna ok so how about installing my custom apps in that usb having ubuntu? using remsatersys?05:23
Veritas242CFHowlett, I'm running 11.10. Everything I've read so far suggests it's setup different.05:23
ActionParsnipCacheMoney: np man :005:24
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, a full install you would just install them. Remastersys is for making a ISO to burn of a installed OS.05:24
GhostWolfVeritas242, as i installed 11.10 you had the option of doing that in the installation of 11.10.05:24
Veritas242GhostWolf, I'm not sure how I changed it, but is it possible to change it back without reinstalling?05:25
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, here is a remastersys link. http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/05:25
GhostWolfVeritas242, don't know but im googling it see where to go. so are you saying you don't want a password when you reboot or restart your pc?05:25
grayhatpythonFyodorovna: so it' just a mirror image of ubuntu and it's applications installed in my desktop to usb key?05:26
rippsIs there a flag for loading up experimental dri? Like LD_LIBRARY_PATH does for loading not install libraries?05:26
Veritas242GhostWolf, when I boot, instead of asking for a password I see the login button on my account, like the one on the guest account.05:26
Veritas242I want that password there to make it more secure05:27
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, basically, but it has limitations in data amount, you would have to look into05:27
GhostWolfVeritas242, ok its not really more secure unless you have people snipping on your computer05:27
sacarlsonripps: modprobe ?05:27
rippssacarlson: that's for loading kernel modules, not x11 drivers05:28
jayjayhey I'm trying to set up ssh for my ubuntu server but I'm having issues with transferring the key from my server to my laptop. Im using ubuntu server edition 10.04 and a macbook pro as the client05:28
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, limitations as far as it has to fit on a disc of some sort even a dvd, not sure of all the uses.05:28
Veritas242GhostWolf, So, even if someone logs in they'll still need the password to make changes- so it's just as secure?05:28
GhostWolfbut im looking it up for you Veritas242 i have had issues with system settings and all in 11.10 i don't like it much05:28
grayhatpythonFyodorovna: how about making a live cd of  ubuntu with custom application and converting it into live usb?05:28
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, that is what it does.05:29
Veritas242GhostWolf, thanks for the help.05:29
GhostWolfVeritas242, yes if someone needs to install or remove a program or update files they need your password05:29
crfripperguys, I hit the windows button or something and now my screen bobbles around as I move the mouse05:29
dr_willisjayjay:  why are you transfering keys05:29
crfripperhow do I turn this off... whatever it is05:29
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, it makes a bootable cd for installing.05:29
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, or dvd.05:29
rhin0jayjay: use ssh-copy-id05:29
grayhatpythonFyodorovna: custom application in the sense any applications like audacity, stellarium?05:30
jayjaythat is what I'm using05:30
sacarlsonripps: funny I do see my graphic card driver in kernel also.  is that not an X11 driver?05:30
rhin0ssh-copy-id user@hostname/ip05:30
jayjayi get connection timed out05:30
rhin0hang on maybe that only works ubuntu to ubuntu05:30
rhin0ask around05:30
jayjaywait hostname/ip?05:30
jayjayso 2 different ups?05:30
rhin0hostname or ip05:30
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, probably. You could just clone a install if you had the partition in a size that will fit on the usb, you can do it a number of ways really.05:31
jayjayhostname of the server and I'm doing this from the client right?05:31
rippssacarlson: they are two seperate things, one is an interface for the X server, the other for the Kernel hardware. Yes, the X11 driver interfaces the kernel module, but they are seperate things05:31
rhin0yes to ssh into the server05:31
jayjaykk il try it again05:31
jayjaymaybe shore wall is messing it up?05:31
rhin0i always use ip address just to be certain05:31

GhostWolfVeritas242, in the system settings, do you see User Accounts?05:32
Fyodorovnagrayhatpython, it is a full install, what do you think. :)05:34
GhostWolfdid you go there to add a password to your account Veritas242/05:34
jayjayno one?05:34
Veritas242Ghostwolf, yes I did.05:35

=== geek is now known as Guest57741
jayjaygood bye05:35
grayhatpythonFyodorovna: : ok i think i didn't explain it properly. I was using Slax which can add modules, like installing apps as a modules. does ubuntu has this feature?05:35
Veritas242GhostWolf, it changes but doesn't ask for it at the login screen. It has a login button where I used to enter the password.05:36
GhostWolfok. should be another section, can you go into your dash and type passwords and keys and you will get that icon and open it up05:36
GhostWolfCFHowlett, any issue about my problem at all? as you last asked if its a wubi installation.05:37
dr_willisgrayhatpython:  slax is a bit specilized in some ways. ubuntu uses the apt packageing ststem05:37

grayhatpython Fyodorovna:  ok Last doubt, whenever i try to install any app using source it get some error saying some supporting package missing. so i tried to get that package source and it said to get some other! so i need to keep on going behind it. How to install app from source? i did ./configure, make , make install. I love to install from source not by apt get install method. please help me example.05:41
Veritas242GhostWolf, it's there but there is no dropdown menu. There's another one called "passwords: login" with a dropdown menu containing several passwords.05:41
GhostWolfVeritas242, then after that it says open the  context menu for that  entry and it says you do that by using the right mouse button05:42

ActionParsnip[[thufir]]: have you deleted old kernels?05:46
ActionParsnipGuest57741: do you have 3D accelleration configured?05:46
[[thufir]]is it possible to see ahead of time how many slices dar will create?  or you just have to manually calculate that?05:47
Guest57741is this for everything? sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager05:48
[[thufir]]ActionParsnip: not yet.  lol.  guess I will now.05:48
Guest57741or am i missing something05:48
ActionParsnipGuest57741: if you don't have 3D accelleration enabled in the video card, it won't make any difference what you do in ccsm05:48

MrBusinessIf I install Ubuntu and a bootloader onto an external USB HDD, will I be able to use it between two different machines with different hardware specs, or will I be likely to encounter driver difficulties along the way?06:08
ClientAlivewell that was stupid... I should have just chosen "http" instead. It just defaults to the right path - lol06:08
FyodorovnaMrBusiness, probably work most of the time, a full install will put the bootloader in  the mbr, if your sure to point it there.06:12
Fyodorovnaone way or the other.06:12
MrBusinessAh, well, part of my goal is to have the bootloader on the external HDD06:12
MrBusinessI'm trying to make this for someone else, and I don't want them to have to deal with GRUB on their own MBR06:12
MrBusinessI don't think I'll run into any issues where one computer has more devices plugged into it than the other, thus potentially confusing GRUB.06:13
MrBusinessOh well, I'll know soon enough, since I'm simulating what I think will be a similar arrangement with my own garbage equipment.06:14
FyodorovnaMrBusiness, they need to familiar with grub really if they can be. Grub will only see what is in its boot file.06:14

Blue1taipres: please also note that later version of software might not be compatible with currently installed software (like webservers and such)06:27
taipresBlue1 I guess I have to now? I'm just pointing this out to you guys, this isn't bobs linux editor, this is one of the most used linux apps in the world, just expected ubuntu to have decently recent version thats all, as it usually does06:27
Chorcaheyhey, what's up.. having a vim question in 11.10.. gnome-terminal seems to hate it by default, status bar doesn't show, and arrow keys don't work, anyone else have that?06:27

taipresok thanks06:27

Flanneltaipres: 11.10 has 3.4.5 in it currently, so that's what you have.06:28

Flanneltaipres: same packages/repositories.  But yeah, you have 3.4.5, which was released in September of last year, so I don't think that's very outdated.06:29

crfripperthe synergy in ubuntu software center is 1.3.8..... how do I install 1.4.7?06:34
Flanneltaipres: That's the only way I'd recommend.  With this particular package, you could snag the updated deb, because the dependencies haven't changed from what I can see.  But you lose security updates that way, and there's some other things you should be aware of as well if you're going to do that.06:34
cancerhow to run this file NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.31-pkg1.run06:34
Flanneland there's no guarantee that the actual package dependencies are accurate (version wise), because mixing ubuntu versions isn't something that's tested for.06:35
theadmincancer: Just by full path, or if it's in the current directory, ./filename06:35
cancertheadmin: i have it on desktop folder06:36

GrakUltimatePower: That's a bit tight on space. If there's no possibility of an extra drive, I'd probably split down the middle.06:42
CFHowlettUltimatePower   a standard installation of ubuntu runs around 5 gigs - add some more for saved data06:42
CFHowlettUltimatePower   also, I HOPE you meant to say you/re installing 11.10 NOT 12.04 BETA...06:42
UltimatePowerCFHowlett : sorry tpo error. I planning to install 11.10.06:43
cancertheadmin: grak: yesterday, auronandace told me some commands of ppa for nvidia. is there any way i can remove them.06:43
theadmin!ppa-purge | cancer06:43
ubottucancer: To disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html06:43
UltimatePowerCFHowlett : I have no ectra money to spare a external disk.06:44
CFHowlettUltimatePower   no worries.  have fun.  Maybe after you're all dual booted up, see this http://fullcirclemagazine.org/downloads/06:44
UltimatePowerCFHowlett : Grak:can u give me tips?06:44
GrakHmm... without knowing which side you plan to use more it's hard to say which partition should be bigger.06:45
=== sun is now known as Guest24966
GrakOne thing I can say is that you'll want to install Windows first.06:45
UltimatePowerCFHowlett : it about linux magazines. what i should i do now?.06:45
CFHowlettUltimatePower  find out how much space is actually used by windows.  subtract that from the 80 gigs.  split the remaining free amount between windows and ubuntu.06:46
GrakUltimatePower: during the Windows install you should have the option to create the install partition. You'll want to make sure it doesn't use the whole drive.06:46

theadminClientAlive: Only the necessary packages that's it07:33

dj_ryanwhy archive.ubuntu.com slow? i want fast archive. Me man, me need huge bandwidth07:34
theadmindj_ryan: Select a mirror closer to you.07:35
jerrrysClientAlive Use F4 function for cli only install07:35
ClientAlivewell "necessary" is sort of ambiguous. Ubuntu may fell that everything all the way up to Unity is "necessary"  --no offense intended, it is sort of ambiguous though07:35
dj_ryantheadmin: archive is the closest to me07:35
theadminClientAlive: Well... You're true on that, but I highly doubt that option will include Xorg or anything07:35
jerrrysClientAlive at the start of the install you get options07:36
ClientAliveok. well, I'm about to find out I guess. It's a bare system to begin with so I guess there's nothing to worry about wiping out. Can just try again and then I'll know.07:36

[[thufir]]ClientAlive: err, ok, umm.  you're doing it "wrong" IMHO07:44
ClientAliveyeah, I think so too07:45
[[thufir]]if you really want a minimal system, probably you want to format the hdd since there's no data there, right?07:45
ClientAliveabsolutely not. Yes, there is no data there. However there is a rather complicated raid/lvm setup. I can't lose that base.07:46
[[thufir]]when you say minimal, you mean no GNOME, no xterm?  why not just install those from cd (easier) then just use apt to remove those packages?  why not do that?07:46
[[thufir]]then just uninstall xterm, gnome, etc.  why not?07:46
* [[thufir]] isn't a linux expert by any means, just offering his two cents07:47
ubottuThe 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/MinimalCD07:47
ClientAlivemy ideal? Ultimately just cli, a very light weight window manager like openbox, a light browser like chrome or opera, and eventually quemu-kvm07:47
[[thufir]]that sounds like the ticket.  use that cd aurondance gave link for.07:48
ClientAliveI have that web page in my browser. I'm not sure what they mean when they say "install base system" There is also an option to manually choose the software.07:48
dddbmthas anybody in here been running ubuntu on "ACER Aspire S3-951" ? - Or maybe you have a suggestion for another "ultrabook" that runs out-of-the-box with ubuntu?07:49

henriquevHow do I disable the <meta> key on Gnome? I've tried everything but it is still there.07:49
[[thufir]]just go with base system.  in this context, it just means whatever comes on that minimal disc by default.07:49
ClientAlivewe'll see what happens I guess07:50
ClientAliveI still want to know what this F4 thing is though. That was coming from someone who says this is thier gig.07:51

harsh343what i can do any help09:33
ikoniaharsh343: have you messed with your sudoers directory ?09:33
ikoniaharsh343: or permissions on your machine in general ?09:33
harsh343ikonia, sudoers yes but right now something different also09:34
=== angela-android is now known as nothingspecial
ikoniaharsh343: I know it's something different09:34
harsh343ikonia, ok09:34
ikoniaharsh343: but I'm working through your error and you appear to have messed up the permissions on your sudoers directory09:34
ikoniaharsh343: fix that first, then move forward09:34
harsh343ikonia, so what i can do ?09:34
ikoniaharsh343: well, if you look at the errors, there is some good info in clear english09:35
ikoniaharsh343: 1.) use apt's autoremove function to clean up packages09:35
ikoniaharsh343: 2.) look at the file /var/cache/apt/archives/locks - it is comaplining it can't get a lock on it, so either you have another package manager open and "locking" it, or you need to remove and re-create that file09:36

xroikonia, i have a python script that never ends... with strace a saw --> futex(0x7ff52c014600, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 0, NULL09:42
xroikonia, so, i looking for a way to "force" the FUTEX09:43
ikoniaxro: you'll need to look at fixing the python script09:43

xroikonia, my script was working fine... but this time i get a problem...09:44
ikoniaxro: so what's changed09:44
xroikonia, nothing ;)09:44
ikoniathat sounds unlikley09:44
bluefrogharsh343, identify the program already opened and close it.   sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/status    should tell you what program is in use09:44

xroikonia, and i quite sure that it will wok fine tomorrow....09:45
=== reith2004_ is now known as reith2004
ikoniaso something must have changed09:45
ikoniaxro: so why are you quite sure it will work fine tomorrow ?09:45
geirhaxro: Then add some debugging messages in the python script so you can locate the problem next time it happens.09:46
xroikonia, because i didn't change anything... so, that should be a "bug"09:46
harsh343bluefrog, output http://pastebin.com/r6XXaiHa09:46
ikoniaxro: so, it doens't work for one day, but you are confident it will work tomorrow with no understanding of why it's failing or whats changed09:46
xrogeirha, i have log infos... but there is no errors... just a threads that wait for ???09:46
bluefrogharsh343, apt-get is certainly waiting for a CD to be inserted (but you don't see it) old bug. kill apt-get and then you'll be ok09:47
geirhaSo your script has a race condition probably09:47
xroikonia, this script worked since 2 years without any bug....09:47
ikoniaxro: ok so something much have changed in either the environment or the processing of what it does09:48
xroikonia, so no way to force a FUTEX? i don't really care if there is an error...09:48
harsh343bash: kill: drupal6: arguments must be process or job IDs09:48
ikoniaxro: how do you expect to force an internal process09:48
xroikonia, there are 10 threads that do the "same job"... 1 on them is locked... why i d'ont know09:49
bluefrogharsh343, sudo kill -9 1757009:49
xroikonia, with a SIG09:49
ikoniaxro: but which one ?09:49
xroikonia, that is my question09:49
ikoniaxro: doubtful09:49
harsh343bluefrog, now next error again http://pastebin.com/STkrTSFH09:50

harsh343ikonia, but i don't no how to do that09:56
ikoniaharsh343: it says in clear english in the logs09:56

johnmNublet: I presume it's either using a standard vga driver, or can't detect the supported monitor resolutions. Looks like a radeon HD 6320, so I'd be inclined to look at installing the radeon drivers and go from there. I'd be surprised if there isn't something online to tell you how ;)10:47
johnmshesek: is it out of space? :)10:48
NubletI have been online searching all morning nowhere says anything about linux and this msi wind box dc100 :(10:48
Nublethow do you know its a radeon HD 6320?10:48

johnmNublet: I looked at the MSI manufacturers page and the tech specs said it shipped with a 6320.10:50
doomgiveroh, a laptop gpu. well, i have a 8400 gs, if that makes you feel any better10:50
johnmNublet: 9806 is the device ID for a 63xx series card.10:51

irishjpds: so search for puppy hashtags then?10:53
CatKillerdoomgiver: Depending on the state of the drive, you could try partimage10:53
johnmNublet: Well, given that :9806 is the device ID for 63xx cars, and the manufacturer claims its a pre-buiklt unit that ships with a 6320, I'd suggest you're fairly safe to go with Radeon HD 6320.10:53
doomgiverCatKiller: im pretty sure there are some bad sectors on the drive.10:53
CatKillerdoomgiver: But if you are using ddrescue, chances are your drive is dying, you need a new one. Therefore ddrescue from the original to the new one10:54
doomgiverwindows errors10:54
jpdsirish: Yes.10:54
doomgiveractually,  the cabinet toppled over, while running10:54
CatKillerdoomgiver: Bad sectors means that your drive doesn't have much longer left.10:54
CatKillerdoomgiver: Drive is probably scratched, you may lose a lot.10:54
doomgiverCatKiller: i've heard bad sectors can be 'repaired', using low level formats.10:54
CatKillerdoomgiver: I guess you can feel lucky nobody was under when it toppled over.10:55
CatKillerdoomgiver: Not true at all10:55
johnmNublet: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver looks fairly up to date10:55
CatKillerdoomgiver: This "low level format" is a thing of the past afaik.10:55
CatKillerdoomgiver: When  a bad sector is detected, the drive remaps it to a reserved area of the disk (because you are bound to get a few over the years). But when that area is full, that means you're getting more bad sectors than the disk can handle and generally it won't stop.10:56
doomgiverhmm, ok. but the hdd seems fine, it doenst make noises. is there no chance at all of recovery?10:56
CatKillerdoomgiver: Noise is for a different problem. Here it is most likely scratched. A whole pile of data is gone./10:56

doomgiverim not opening it up!!10:57
CatKillerdoomgiver: Once you have the data safe, why not?10:58
CatKillerdoomgiver: That drive will need to be binned anyways.10:58

pea_Hello room11:01
johnmNublet: it'll only say that when it can match a driver with the device ID (9806) which in this case it cannot.11:02
pea_Can anyone help me with an internet sound problem?11:02
Nubletso there is no way to be sure of the exact card in here? if its the one you say, it is not in the list of drivers in the site you linked me11:03
johnmNublet: I've not used a radeon card on linux in a very long time personally, but the proproetary drivers are here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx and they're based on the open source fglrx drivers.11:03
johnmNublet: I'd imagine at the very least, they;'ll be supported by catalyst.11:03
johnmNublet: No, I'm 99.9% confident that the card is what I said it was. Mainly because thats what the manufacturer says it is, and it's embedded on the motherboard.11:04
NubletI have never had to install propriety drivers before usually the hardware drviers option in ubuntu does it for me...11:04
kameis there a channel for embedded linux?11:04
Nubletis there no command line option to verify the type of card I have in here _11:04
irishjpds: not quite understanding how to type the name  for the file...lupu-528.004.iso Every attempt has been unrecognizable.11:05
johnmNublet: you're very welcome to ignore my suggestion and continue looking. I imagine it's simply that the device database isn't up to date for the newer radeon card.11:05
sacarlsonNublet: sudo lshw; should all the info you need11:05
Nubletim not ignoring your suggestion I just want to be 100% sure I am installing the right driver and following the correct guide11:05
johnmNublet: you've verififed it already. The device ID is resolved by looking up vendor and device id's in the device id database. It isn't in there. It doesn't mean its not what the manufacturer says it is though. And it's already within the same family re: device id's11:06
johnmWell, the catalyst drivers support all modern radeon cards.11:06

Nubletwe have some that either run a slide show on a big screen in our main office 24/7 never gets turned off and some like this used for meetings with presentations etc so ...windows is always slowing down and needing cleaning and defrag etc and viruses..this...we just set up and leave... no need to worry aobut it much less maintenance once its set up :)12:37
Draconicussara2010: Please tell me what it says under that icon for "wireless network"12:37
sara2010Draconicus ..  it was working with old d-link card i buy new one !12:37
Nubletthere is something called Gubuntu? :s12:37
DraconicusNublet: You said it first. I dunno.12:37
sara2010Draconicus .. there is no wireless card only lan is working !12:37
bazhangNublet, you spelled it that way two lines up12:37
Draconicussara2010: Do you know how to open a terminal?12:37
Nubletoh sorry must have been mistyped if i added that12:37
Draconicusbazhang: Hay, do you know why my Compiz won't work in Xfce? :D12:38
bazhangDraconicus, got ccsm installed?12:38
sara2010Draconicus ,, yah i know  how to open terminal12:38
Draconicusbazhang: Of course. Compiz just hangs on its own. It only works in Unity or GNOME3... Unless Unity is pulling Gnome's alternate compositor. I hope not.12:39
Nubletwhat is the best way to start troubleshootng non working wireless with ubuntu say for example, I type ifconfig and it does not show wlan anywhere only eth0 but in the top ubuntu panel/toolbar I click on the wireless icon and it displays NO wireless connections when there are atleast 4 in this area12:40
* vvvvv 12:40
Draconicussara2010: "Type lspci | grep controller" - do not paste the output here, but tell me if you see your wireless card12:40
DraconicusNublet: Do that on yours too. :D12:41
bazhangDraconicus, I'd ask in #compiz in a little bit were I in your situation, sorry I can offer only the most obvious suggestions12:41
Nubletok lol12:41
Draconicusbazhang: Already there. They are perplexed thusfar. Do you know if GNOME3 has its own compositor?12:41
NubletDraconicus, the closest thing I get to wirless from that command line is "03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)" but that is my current wired connection :s12:41
Draconicusbazhang: My benchmark so far has been AWN. If AWN gets all pretty, I know we're compositing and assume Compiz is working. Might not be the best method.12:42
DraconicusNublet: Are you quite sure it's plugged in?12:42
DraconicusNublet: Sometimes they're not called controllers. Try just "lspci"12:42
Nubletyeah wireless is built into this nettop12:42
DraconicusMight be labeled with "adapter" or some junk.12:42

ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

Nublethmm, Draconicus you dont think there should be a keyboard shortcut or something to turn it on or off?12:55
Draconicussara2010: What model is it? Broadcom?12:55

html_5tattus,  wellcome, just google it, it was easy,12:56
Draconicussara2010: Ralink cards sometimes need firmware. I'm surprised it didn't just say "firmware missing" on your network status though. Go to dash-home and type "driver", then click "Additional Drivers"12:56
Draconicussara2010: If you're missing your wireless firmware, it'll show up there.12:56

Shinkamu1what script12:57
Nubletso I have no idea :s12:57
tattusone more thing, google says to open the terminal alt + f2, I tried that but nothing happenned...12:57
DraconicusNublet: Vendors aren't terribly helpful. Sorry.12:57
Shinkamu1is there a google command that can be used publicly in the channel12:57
bazhangShinkamu1, to do what12:57
Nubletits ok12:57
Shinkamu1no idea12:57
bazhangShinkamu1, then why ask12:58
Shinkamu1im apparently confusing people with a trigger I don't know I have active12:58
OerHeksShinkamu1, no google-bot-extention here12:58
DraconicusNublet: Crazy idea, but can you try shutting the machine down and physically re-seating the card?12:58
Nubletyou think i dont have much chance to get this working then since we cant find out what the hardware is exactly?12:58
ubottuWhile Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.12:58
Nublethmm dunno I would need to open up the nettop12:58
Shinkamu1well, no idea why I got removed then12:58
Nubletit looks pretty sealed12:58

Nubletwell thank you for your time anyway :)12:59
DraconicusNublet: If I were you and needed a quick fix for an office, I'd go buy a $15 USB wireless dongle.12:59
NubletI will have a word with my boss I think we can survive without the wirless on this thing12:59
DraconicusNublet: The cheapo netgear ones work great.12:59

Nubletbut ill look at netgear :)13:00
gvandeweyerhi, I'm having issues with fdisk on ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS. I'm trying to create a partition on a large raid system, but fdisk refuses to create anything larger than 2TB.13:00
dr_willisi need to pick up one of those also.13:00
DraconicusNublet: Well, I can't say much about 10.04, but in 11.10 I haven't yet found a wireless thing that doesn't "just work" to some degree.13:00
gvandeweyerWhat might be the problem here?13:00
Nubletnice :D13:00
NubletUI have had one that would not work properly on 10.4 it was a cheap unbranded one from china lol13:00
Nubletsuppose you get what you pay for lol13:00
DraconicusNublet: After 10.10, firmware has prepackaging in Ubuntu repos. It's pretty sexy actually. Broadcom card? Click here to install fwcutter!13:00
sipiorgvandeweyer: yeah, that is the limit of fdisk, i'm afraid. parted will manage just fine. (also sfdisk, i think)13:00
Nubletlol nice13:01
gvandeweyersipior : thanks, I'll have a look.13:01
DraconicusNublet: That boils down to clicking the wireless icon, seeing "firmware missing", going to "additional drivers" and grabbing the b43 thing13:01
DraconicusNot far from what I told sara2010 to do. Any luck, sara?13:01
sipiorgvandeweyer: actually, i'm probably wrong about sfdisk. no harm giving it a go, of course.13:01
DraconicusI really need to go...13:01
DraconicusAh well, good luck to you all! Thanks for the help... wait, that was #Xubuntu.. :x13:02
DraconicusAh well13:02
gvandeweyersipior : yes, I've looked into the sfdsisk manual, it specifically states 'not for large partitions'13:02
gvandeweyertime to learn to use parted...13:03
sipiorgvandeweyer: indeed :-)13:03
Nubletwell Draconicus  I click the wifi icon and it seems to work as normal apart form it does not show any wireless connection to connect to and I knwof ro a fact there are atleast 4 connections here it just doesnt see them13:03
dr_willisit would be neat if you could somehow autogenerate a repo cd that had all the restricded drivers on it. gor people with wireless only13:03
Nubletbut ok, if you need to go ill cya later :) thank you for your time :)13:03

bazhangamr_gaber, from where13:05
edwarentamr_gaber, what you need install?13:07
dr_willisoften you need to make the .exe. executable or use the cli..    wine /path/to/whatever.exe13:07
inzihey everyone13:07
speddiehey all. Fairly long time ubuntu/linux user. first time on this #ubuntu channel13:07
zambamy eth0 card is set up to automatically retrieve network configuration (dhcp).. the same goes with ipv6 addresses.. but i need to add some additional ipv6 addresses.. how can i do this so that it will be permanent?13:07

inzidoes anyone know if skype 5.8 will run well on ubuntu, with windows 7 under virtualbox13:08
queencyhello can you tell me what flash add on should i use in ubuntu ?13:08
speddieinzi, yes13:08
inzii want to switch to ubuntu but i use skype a lot.. and the linux version of skype isnt gud enuf13:08
speddieif your host is up to it13:08
haemogoblinanyone on here used Darkplaces?13:09
inzispeddie will all the functions work? camera etc..13:09
dr_willisamr_gaber:  keep it in the channel. not in pm13:09
speddieyou can do that, if you have issues jsut make the virtualbox task a high priority in windows13:09
speddieyou could even go the other way and virtualize windows in ubunti13:09
Nubletbluefrog, wil that link be safe to follow since it is for Ubuntu 8.10 when I am on Ubuntu 10.413:09
bluefrogNublet, it will need some reading and understanding of what's going on13:09
speddiei havent tried camera, only voice when i was testing other voip stuff13:09
inzispeddie thats the plan, ubuntu is the main OS, while windows is virtualizd13:09
haemogoblinis there an irc for linux gamers? as i need some advice getting quake running13:10
nx7400join #xubuntu+113:10
inzispeddie thanks.. i think i'll hv to give it a try myself13:10
dr_willishaemogoblin:  the original quake 1?13:10
bluefrogNublet, apparently opensuse  is runnning ok on your nettop. so you could grab a suse live version and see what wifi chipset is in there13:10
haemogoblindr_willis, Yes13:10
Nublethmm maybe. I will check this guide qucikly though give it a go if it works I am set13:11
speddieyeh your better off having ubuntu as host and virtualize windows. best thing is because the hard drives are single files, snapshots are just a matter opf copy/paste the file you stuff up windows/get virus whatever, just go back to known working hdd13:11
inzianyone here using 12.04, stable?13:11
Nubletif I change to OpenSuse I may need to sort out my graphics again lol13:11
dr_willishaemogoblin:  use one of the.remakes from the.repos perhaps13:11
inzispeddie r u on ubuntu?13:11
haemogoblindr_willis,  i've been following an online guide from the ubuntu forum13:11
Nubletthe wireless isnt really a priority it would just be nice to have it working lol13:11
wyldeinzi, 12.04 isn't stable yet13:11
haemogoblinand hidding a brick wall.13:11

Nubletrandom question when I do wget where will it download the file to?13:12
inzispeddie, my skype on 11.10 has dark almost green video, tried all the work arounds on the forum.. hopefully 12.04 fixd the issue13:12
speddieif your CPU has it inzi, make sure vXD is turned on in the bios (or whatever else it may be called)13:12
dr_willis!find quake13:12

dr_willisshaneo:  not that i know of13:14
amr_gaberhow i make .exe executable13:14

shaneosw0rdfish, I had that same problem once except i didnt allow all and when i woke up there were multiple attempts at a connection on my pc def check your logs than if you find a ip than you may want to do a whois on that ip13:17
sw0rdfishwhat does this mean in /var/log/auth.log:13:17

satyanashMy Gnome login keyring password and login password is the same. Why do I still have to enter it each time after I log in ?13:20
bluefrogNublet, you'd better grab live version and ttry to see if it works with any distro13:20
bluefrogNublet, (including a live version of latest ubuntu13:20
Nubletyeah i will maybe try opensuse like you say13:20
Nubletdo you know if graphics works for opensuse?13:20
bluefrogNublet, same as ubuntu13:20
ironmthank you ikonia  Do you know if such irc channel exists at all? (maybe on another sever)13:20
dr_willissatyanash:  you can set the keyring to not use a password13:20
satyanashdr_willis, aahh.. I would rather not.13:21
Nubletwell thanks for your help :)13:21
shaneosw0rdfish, hmm well remove any unknown crons and look for a connection from an ip that is not on your network in the log13:21
ironmMay I ask one question, please? Why do I need an invitation for the #ubuntu-live channel? I have found some issues with live-builder on ubuntu 11.01 or 12.04 (server) but can't report them anywhere. I am looking for current documentation how to create live images on ubuntu.13:21
satyanashdr_willis, I remember it gettting unlocked automatically when I logged in.13:21
dakabhansisolo, file permissions are ok.. I think: -rw-------  1 username username 1215 2012-03-12 13:58 authorized_keys13:21
dr_willissatyanash: you set a blank password for it and it auto unlocks on login13:22
sw0rdfishoh wait shaneo... I found the text file... but for some reason it has changed names.... like it used to be .hiddentext for example... and now its .hiddentext.save.113:22
sw0rdfishwhata hell13:22
sw0rdfishlol... thank God its still there though I need that file's text/13:22
sipiorsatyanash: might be worth trying to set both passwords to an (identical) new value.13:23
=== ubuntu is now known as orionsonofneptun
satyanashsipior, they are identical.13:23
shaneosw0rdfish, the the directory the file is stored ctrl+h and see if there is a backup file13:23
sipiorsatyanash: that's not my point.13:23
dakabIf permissions are incorrect i would think that the login from the second terminal would fail as well but that one works.13:24
shaneoubuntu usually keeps a ~backup of text files13:24
hansisolodakab so an ssh user@localhost works? Do you use something like nfs homes with  -sec=krb5 ?13:24
satyanashsipior, oh you mean again, to a new value.13:24
sipiorsatyanash: yes.13:24
sw0rdfishlike I told you shaneo ...  ".save.1" was appended to its name13:24
sw0rdfishand I gotta go for like 10 minutes now...13:24
sw0rdfishcya in a bit13:24
shaneosw0rdfish, sorry didnt see it alot of text strolling right now13:26
dakabhansisolo, Aha.. Your on to something there. The /home/bytezero/ is encrypted..13:27
Nubletbrb gonna try a few things13:27
hansisolodakab, so, there you have your problem :-)13:27
dakabhansisolo, yes.. Nice! Thank you so much. It's been bothering me! :-D So first time i login the partition is decrypted and then SSH process can find the ".ssh/authorized_keys" ?!13:28
sw0rdfishshaneo, damn man why do you think that happened13:30
sw0rdfishscared the heck out of me13:30
sw0rdfishI probably should have several copies of that file13:30
sw0rdfishand perhaps learn how to encrypt13:30
sipiordakab: the first entry under "Troubleshooting" may be of use to you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys13:30
shaneosw0rdfish, you could use Ubuntu cloud to store it13:31
dakabsipior, Excellent.. Why didn't i think of that ;) Thanks alot.13:31
sw0rdfishubuntu cloud you say.... I don't like the idea of cloud... you store files in a group of servers belonging to someone else13:32
sw0rdfishand they have access to it...etc13:32
shaneobelonging to Ubuntu13:32
sw0rdfishregardless if its a profit or non-profit organization.13:32
jpdssw0rdfish: Welcome to the 21st Century.13:32
sw0rdfishis it fre?13:32
shaneotrust me Ubuntu Cloud will save your ass13:33
shaneoyes 5GB13:33
sw0rdfishdamn 5GB for millions of ppl... haha they must be rich and cool :D13:33
shaneorich prob not cool very :)13:33
uictamalesw0rdfish: Most people only use a few MBs at most13:33
uictamaleso they overprovision like crazy13:33
sw0rdfishany of the admins can just have a look at files stored by users there though... still sucks...13:33
gvandeweyerwhat would be the recommended file system for a production server under linux on a >20TB raid5 setup?13:34
sw0rdfishin any cloud network I mean.13:34
shaneosw0rdfish, as long as you dont have some sketchy shit on there your good to go13:34
gvandeweyerI'm used to setting up ext4 for daily usage, but it has a limit at 16TB13:34
sipiorgvandeweyer: jfs should be fune.13:34
sipiorgvandeweyer: fine, even.13:34
crizzysw0rdfish: ever heard of encryption? anyway, don't worry, no one will give a crap for your data :P13:34
uictamalegvandeweyer: depends on the average size of files, how much you care about corruption vs performance, what model of read vs. write.. etc13:34
gvandeweyerlarge filesize typical around 20GB per file13:34
shaneosw0rdfish, you could use gpg to sign and encrypt the file13:35
shaneoor asc13:35
gvandeweyerwith corruption is not tolerated :-)13:35
sw0rdfishcrizzy, hehe... yeah thats what I said I'll learn how to encrypt and store the file in several places here on my machines and wALA!13:35
gvandeweyerI read xfs is more mature than jfs, does that still hold?13:35
shaneoyoull have to trust the cloud eventually its going to be everywhere13:35
sipiorgvandeweyer: not especially.13:36
sipiorgvandeweyer: i mean, you were going to put ext4 on it until just a few minutes ago, right? :-)13:36
sw0rdfishthe hell with it shaneo13:36
uictamaleshaneo: I highly doubt that.  Consumer hard drives are still the cheapest datastores by far13:36
gvandeweyersipior: yes13:36
uictamaleshaneo: And they only keep getting cheaper.13:36
sw0rdfish+1 uictamale :D13:37
uictamaleshaneo: Need offsite-backup?  Buy one for your parents :)13:37
shaneolol damn i just got hammered13:38
uictamaleEnh, I see a lot of sentiments like yours lately.. especially when I'm trying to determine what I want to do with my own data13:38
uictamalethe allure is definitely there13:38
uictamalebut if you have 100s of GB of important data (for me it's photos), there really is no comparison to just buying two $50 external hard drivers.13:38
uictamaleerr drives.13:39
dakabsipior: worked like a charm. :)13:39
sipiordakab: good!13:39
StavaI spammed the super key (hide/show unity panel), so unity-2d-launcher gave up and crashed. How do I start it again?13:39
giuseppelamalfaSalve, qualcuno parla italiano?/Hi, does someone speak italian?13:39
uictamalegvandeweyer: Looks like ZFS is your best bet for large files.13:39
shaneoyeah thats true i only use cloud right now for storing stuff for school other than that i have a truecrypt encrypted exthdd that holds all my data my actuall hdd contains nothing but what the system needs13:39
Stavarunning unity-2d-lancher in my terminal will hijack the terminal13:39

Xabsteri get 404 on that url too and i dont know how to fix it13:54
bluefrogNublet, that's your card13:54
LjLKingsy: i don't believe you can have ppa.launchpad.net enabled generally, you need a specific ppa repository. you can ignore that error, or if you want to make it go away you can remove the relevant entry from /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/13:54

I can ssh to a machine let's call it B but I can not connect back per ssh from machine B to my machine. It always tells me: "host blubb port 22: Connection timed out" where blubb is the hostname of my machine.14:27
EvilResistanceAufwind:  apt-get install openssh-server14:28
JaybirdOk I am new. Very confused and not technical. Not even sure if I am in the right place....14:28
AufwindEvilResistance, Already did that. :-)14:28
MonkeyDustAufwind  you need both ssh server and ssh client14:28
EvilResistanceAufwind:  make sure you have the ports open, and make sure you're specifying the right IP14:28
Jaybirdbut am trying to get a new os onto a laptop14:28
Sidewinder1Jaybird, Just ask and we'll see what we can do..14:28
dr_willisdefault works fir me14:28
AufwindEvilResistance, the command (I did some googling before) `sudo service ssh status` yields: ssh start/running, process 966, that means ssh server is ready, right?14:29
dime01Hi all14:29
dr_willisAufwind:  yes14:29
JaybirdOK my acer  aspire 6930 - windows died. Acer want to charge £52 I do not have for their restore disk.14:29
AufwindEvilResistance, I installed Gufw and disabled the firewall. Same results.14:29
EvilResistanceAufwind:  yes, on machine B, how are you trying to connect to machine A?14:29
dr_willisAufwind:  try ssh localhost14:29
EvilResistance(A being the machine you're having issues with()14:30
JaybirdMy friend thinks it is possible to install a free os and then get into the hd ( I know I will have lost anything not backed up and don't care)14:30
Aufwinddr_willis, ssh localhost works fine.14:30
dime01It seems that I have a problem of permission with java plugin for firefox14:30
AufwindEvilResistance, by ssh myloginnamne@myip14:30
dr_willisJaybird:  yes14:30
JaybirdI went to the ubuntu site and downloaded what I thought was the os14:30
EvilResistanceAufwind:  are the two machines on the same network, or separate networks?14:31
pfifoJaybird, you can use a livecd to make a backup of your drive first (if you have a place to back it up)14:31
MonkeyDustJaybird  you need the .iso14:31
Jaybirdbut when I try to open it it says that the  free version is expiered14:31
AufwindEvilResistance, same networks. connection from A to B works but not the reverse.14:31
dime01When I run Firefox under root I have Java plugins enable (seen in about:plugins) whereas I run it under the install user Java is not enabled14:31
AufwindEvilResistance, Sorry for my horrible english, I am no native speaker/writer. :-)14:31
dime01Any idea ?14:31
MonkeyDustJaybird  ubuntu 11.10 ?14:32
EvilResistanceAufwind:  you're speaking quite well :P14:32
dr_willisJaybird:  all ubuntus are free14:32
AufwindEvilResistance, They should be. Since the machine B is sshable from machine A.14:32
Nubletalmoxarife, you think this is something I am going to have too much trouble with? Its something I should just leave and maybe buy a cheap usb wireless adapter that works with ubuntu?14:32
Nubletor do you have anymore ideas?14:32
Jaybirdwell that is odd..I have the whole thing burned to a disk and it tells me it is no longer free14:32
dr_willisJaybird:  what did yiu fownload exactly14:32
AufwindEvilResistance, Thank you [Sir, Madame], for this compliment!  :D14:32

Jaybirdhang on and will open it and tell you14:34
Nubletthank you for your time though14:34
AufwindEvilResistance, Isn't it the case, that if machine A can acces machine B by ssh, then it is not a "network/router config problem? And machine B should be able to access machine A by SSH, too?14:35

JyothisOk. does that happen for all windows?15:18
AufwindEvilResistance, welcome back. :-)15:18
AufwindEvilResistance, What would you suggest me doing?15:19
nishttal2hi .. my fresh Ubuntu installation was working great till I rebooted and now I am stuck at the grub> prompt.. why would that happen and how can I fix it15:19
EvilResistanceAufwind:  standby, fixing a lag issue on my end15:19
gvonishttal2: what happens if you press enter?15:20
nishttal2gvo, i get the same grub> prompt back15:20
leOnand i'm not the only one experiencing this .. a colleague of mine says it's happening the same thing with him. As for which windows .. maybe it's beacause it's what i use more .. but i do see it happening more with chromium-browser and the terminal windows. More with chromium, actually.15:20
ryannathansis a Mellanox MHEA28-XSC PCI-E express Infiniband Host Adapter natively supported?15:20
pfifonishttal2, did you installl using a liveUSB ?15:20
nishttal2gvo, when i press TAB.. i get a screenfull of commands i can choose from15:21
nishttal2pfifo, yes15:21
JyothisOk leOn.15:21
nishttal2pfifo, however, i was able to reboot several times without issue..15:21
AufwindEvilResistance, Sure!15:21
pfifonishttal2, you might have put grub's config files on the usb by accident, hell you might of installed the whole thing on the usb. try plugging it back in and see what happens15:21
leOnJyothis: from what i know we're using stock setup, with unity, etc15:22
gvopfifo nishttal2 good point, did you have the usb plugged in when you rebooted?15:22
JyothisOk, all updates applied?15:22
JyothisleOn: ^15:22
nishttal2gvo, pfifo I have 2 disks and setup RAD0 on 2 volumes (grub was installed on this) and RAID 1 on other 2 volumes (no grub on this)15:23
nishttal2gvo, pfifo no everything was installed on md0 (RAID0 drive, with sda1 and sdb1 as underlying disks)15:24
gvotype in boot at the grub prompt15:24
pfifonishttal2, do you have /boot as a seperate partition on a non-raid device?15:25
leOnJyothis: yep, to the day ... i also notice that if i minimize->maximize a chromium window i get the overlaped top panel. If then i change focus to another window with alt+tab and return focus again to the chromium window with alt-tab, the title bar is correct15:25
nishttal2pfifo, no i dont15:25
`KorvinEvilResistance, I was able to get the gui working, heres what I had to do:15:25
gvoWhat distro?15:25
nishttal2pfifo, gvo i dont have any partition that is NOT RAIDED15:25
pfifonishttal2, is thei sofraid, fakeraid or realraid?15:25
`Korvinkill [k|g]dm uninstall nvidia driver, install nvidia driver start kdm15:25
nishttal2pfifo, gvo software raid15:25
EvilResistanceAufwind:  i'm unsure what to do at this point, it could be anything interfering with your SSH connectivity, outbound blocking on machine B, SSH not properly listening on port 22 on Machine A (unlikely per the netstat)15:26
leOnso apparently the "shift up" is only happening on the initial redraw of the maximizing window15:26
pfifonishttal2, for soft raid, a non raid /boot is REQUIRED15:26
nishttal2pfifo, gvo.. i used the alternate ubuntu disk to create/configure raid15:26
uictamalehey all.. I have ntp installed and it's running, but my computer keeps drifting pretty far.  I just ran ntpdate and it was off by over a minute.  Any ideas?15:26
nishttal2pfifo, gvo REALLY?? wow that must be it then.. why would it let me install without complaining???15:26
Jyothisnishttal2 / pfifo - I had a similar issue and had to force installer to create a 100 MB /boot by hand to get things really starting for 11.1015:26
AufwindEvilResistance, I understand, the outbound blocking could be checked id I tryed to log onto my machine(A) from another machine C, right?15:26
pfifonishttal2, grub is not running properly because it doesnt know anything about RAID, and its configs are on the raid15:27
leOnJyothis: didn't put your name on the last message, hope you don't miss it =)15:27
gvonishttal2: what distro?15:27
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis aaah.. man i tried installing 3 times with the same issue.. now I know15:27
nishttal2gvo, 11.1015:27
JyothisleOn: saw that - sounds like a bug :)15:27
gvonishttal2: OK what happens if you type "boot"?15:27
dime01yes I fix it !!!!!15:28
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis, gvo so do i need to reinstall the whole thing OR is there a way i can repartition??15:28
nishttal2gvo, i dont have access to the box at the moment.. will try once i reach home15:28
pfifonishttal2, you could, copy the /boot on the raid to a suitable place. its probably more trouble than its worth if you dont have any daya to preserve yet15:29
JyothisI went with a reinstall as I didnt have patience to try fixing it on the fly and I dont count myself an expert in that15:29
gvoAs pifo says it's not nice to run /boot part on anything other than a normal partitions.15:29
AufwindEvilResistance, sshing my machine from a machine C does not seem to work either15:29
gvonishttal2: I'd start over.15:29
leOnJyothis: just tried on a bunch of windows, it's happening with them all. It's not application specific15:29
AufwindEvilResistance, drives me crazy, I hope I am not bugging you.15:29
nishttal2gvo, pfifo.. OK but is there way to boot up for now.. so i can copy some data back15:30
JyothisOk, I would say if you cant find a bug, file one :)15:30
Jyothisnishttal2: use a live distro15:30
zykotick9uictamale: do you have ntpd setup/running?  "ps aux | grep ntpd"15:30
leOnnishttal2: use sysrescuecd15:30
gvonishttal2: maybe a boot or do what Jyothis  says.15:30
pfifonishttal2, no, but you can use a liveCD and then mount the raid by hand to copy /boot15:30
EvilResistanceAufwind:  then the issue is Machine A.15:30
uictamalezykotick9: yup.15:30
EvilResistanceAufwind:  if you can, can you do me a favor, and (1) disable Gufw, and (2) do sudo iptables -F15:31
EvilResistancethen try15:31
JyothisleOn: Ok, I would say if you cant find a bug, file one :)15:31
_MarcusIs there a changelog for mysql-server anywhere?15:31
nishttal2gvo, pfifo, Jyothis, leOn : ok thanks guys.. btw.. does /boot partition mean i install the OS on there or just boot loader?15:31
AufwindEvilResistance, sure, You are the one who is doing the favors here. ;-)15:31
`KorvinI have an HDD with ubuntu on it, I need to get a file from /home/derp, however, my home dir is encrypted on that hdd, how can I access those files?15:31
pfifonishttal2, I myself use encrypted root, and i have my /boot burned to a CD for security, you could do the same15:31
Jyothisnishttal2: boot only15:32
leOnJyothis: http://askubuntu.com/questions/107787/ubuntu-10-04-lucid-is-there-a-way-to-fix-the-maximize-window-malfunction15:32
pfifonishttal2, /boot is only your kernel/initrd and grub's configs15:32
droid-0854Kor cryptkeeper?15:32
leOnlooks like it's something prior to 11.1015:32
unkrhey i m unable to start vmware workstation 8.0.1  in kernel 3.2.1    any one help me ???15:32
gvonishttal2: when you set up partitions just make a /boot and a / partition, the install will take care of putting the right stuff in the right places15:32
AufwindEvilResistance, disabling Gufw by this Gui-thing? Switch to Off?15:32
JyothisleOn: ok, good to know15:32
nishttal2pfifo, encrypted home is another can of worms... i will often have to remote in to that box.. so then I would have to keep my private key in an unencrypted folder that defeats the purpose and is too much hassle15:32
EvilResistanceAufwind:  yes.15:32
EvilResistancebe right back, got to get some lunch15:33
`Korvindroid-0854, would that decrypt the directory?15:33
pfifonishttal2, right, im just saying you 'could' put /boot on a cd even though your not using encryption, it will work for raid too15:33
lost_edennobody got experience with accelerometers? 'find \sys -name position' returns nothing?15:33
nishttal2pfifo, yeah the only problem is I do not have a CD drive :)15:33
AufwindEvilResistance, I disabled gufw but `sudo service ufw status` still yields `ufw start/running`. Is this ok or shall I disable the whole firewall? (If yes how do I do that?)15:34
nishttal2pfifo, i am doing everything through USB.. i guess i could do a USB /boot15:34
Fyodorovnapfifo, advising to put the boot other than the hd is out of the channels norm.15:34
pfifonishttal2, well a usb key would suffice (although since i do it for security a read only media is required for me)15:34
pfifoFyodorovna, what?15:35
Fyodorovnapfifo, were you asked for this info?15:35
nishttal2gvo.. thats good to know becoz that was my next question .. how do i tell the installer to put OS on / and grub on /boot.. thanks. :)15:35
traumHello, world!15:35
traumdo you see me?)15:35
pfifoFyodorovna, check the channel logs if you are wonder about the conversation15:35
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis, gvo 100MB enough for /boot?.. more or less?15:35
desiph3rdoes anyone know answer to this thread? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11759311#post1175931115:35
Jyothisnishttal2: I have mine at 10015:36
Fyodorovnapfifo, you were not you are just advising then when not asked.15:36
desiph3rI'm tried everyting to get extended desktop to work15:36
nishttal2Jyothis, 100 seems like a lot for /boot15:36
aezaerthhello here15:36
Jyothisnishttal2: this is alos linked to a bug with certain drive chipset15:36
Jyothisas far as I can remember15:36
pfifonishttal2, 100mb is plenty, the kernel image and initrd are small enough to fit on a floppy in most cases15:36
Fyodorovnapfifo, under a encryption it ios not needed, and under a regular install provides little protection.15:37
nishttal2Jyothis, pfifo, gvo .. i wish the installer was smart enough to warn me when i tried to install the bootloader on RADI15:37
Jyothisnishttal2: I left at 100 on a futuristic perspective15:37
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis ok.. sounds good 100 it is15:38
pfifoFyodorovna, his /boot is on a raid LVM because of setup misconfiguration, he is looking for a way to make his system bootable, there is no non-raid partition available, do you have a suggestion?15:38
AufwindEvilResistance, I deactivated the firewall by `sudo ufw disable`. Now I have to reboot. Back in 2 minutes.15:38
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis, gvo i do have another compiz related issue.. its cosmetic but annoying me a lot15:38
Jyothisnishttal2: you are free to experiment with the size, but 100 was what I settled as a comfortable number - ymmv15:38
Sivikanyone know how to fix the bug with vsftpd not starting right in ubuntu?15:38
Fyodorovnapfifo, raid is not my specialty, a lvm has a separate boot partition already I believe, my concern basically with was putting a boot off the hd is not really a norm, but what very few would do.15:39
Sivikanyone have any luck getting vsftpd to run correctly?15:39
_MarcusSivik: I am running it fine.15:39
Sivik_Marcus, what version?15:39
SivikI am getting an issue with terminating with status 115:40
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis, gvo i enabled desktop cube, it works fine.. but when i rotate to the next desktop.. it shows windows from the last desktop for some milliseconds.. enough to cause a flicker.. does anyone know why that is happening15:40
_MarcusSivik: What do you mean?15:40
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis, gvo.. does not happen on 10.10 that i run at work15:40
Sivikwhat version of vsftpd and ubuntu are you running?15:40
pfifoFyodorovna, we need a temporary work around, so putting /boot on a cd is 1 way, until he said he dosent have a CD drive15:40
AufwindEvilResistance, Back again!15:40
Fyodorovnapfifo, probably a setup that is not really needed overall I suspect, some will jump in without really understanding what thet are doing, oh well. :)15:41
Jyothisnishttal2: may be your graphics driver wants a coffee? :)15:42
_MarcusSivik: Ubuntu 11.10 and vsftpd.. well, I am still checking15:42
pfifoFyodorovna, I use it myself with my encrypted root, as you cant sneak a keylogger into an initrd thats on a readonly medium15:42

PraxiIn my ongoing effort to switch my windows workstation over to linux, I need something to manage MS SQL servers.  Mainly just simple queries.  I looked @ razor, its nice, but I don't think I want to buy it yet.15:44
elijahCan someone who is running Ubuntu 11.10 and Server version: Apache/2.2.20 (Ubuntu) pastebin the output of the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf for me? I seem to have deleted the contents of mine and apache is failing to start with the contents of the Ubuntu one https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/+source/apache2/2.2.20-1ubuntu1.215:44
_MarcusSivik: vsftpd 2.3.215:44
Sivik_Marcus, I have 11.10 and whatever version of vsftpd is installed in the repos and here is the error I get when I try and start it: http://pastebin.com/iV3gyQR515:44
AufwindEvilResistance, I deactivated ufw (status is inactive now) and tryed to login from the other machine. Same issue.15:45
elijahIt is just a local development environment for Drupal and other sites15:45
Sivik_Marcus, how did you determine the version and how did you instlal it?15:45
elijahI need to get virtual hosts working and I think I need some data in the httpd.conf file15:45
johnmelijah: you should be able to reinstall the package15:45
_MarcusSivik: I typed "vsftpd -version" to get the version number. I did "sudo apt-get install vsftpd" to install it. It was last year when I installed it though.15:45
elijahjohnm: k, I can try that. is it apt-get reinstall apache215:46
johnmelijah: ie: apt-get install --reinstall apache 3 (iirc)15:46
nishttal2Jyothis, question about the my RAID setup.. so I have 2 disks.. i create 2 volumes on each.. then setup RAID 0 on sda1, sdb1 and RAID 1 on sdb1, sdb2... wondering if I am getting what i hope for.. .. that if one disk fails, I would still be able to recover data from RAID 115:46
_MarcusSivik: Can you paste what you get when you type "ps aux | grep vsftpd" please?15:46
nishttal2Jyothis, sorry RAID1 on sda2, sdb215:47
Sivikroot@NAS:/home/sivik/vsftpd-2.3.5# ps aux | grep vsftpd15:47
Sivikroot     30382  0.0  0.0   9244   872 pts/0    S+   10:42   0:00 grep --color=auto vsftpd15:47
_MarcusNext time, pastebin it please.15:47
Praxielijah, I went and looked at my httpd.conf and its empty15:47
Sivikthats the messages in dmesg15:47
pfifonishttal2, that looks fine, but you dont need 2 raids, you can have singel raid contain 2 or more partitions15:47
mneptokSivik: do you have anonymous users using this FTP service, or is everyone that uses it also an acocunt holder?15:48
elijahPraxi: Very interesting! thanks a bunch for that15:48
_MarcusSivik: Is anything written to "/var/log/vsftpd.log"?15:48
Sivikmneptok, anonymous is disabled but thats not even the issue.15:48
nishttal2pfifo, but i want one to be RAID0 for performance and another for RAID1 for reliability15:48
mneptokSivik: why FTP?15:48
Sivik_Marcus, not, its empty15:48
AcidRainunder ubuntu, i have the issue where i cant access subdirectories on my ftp server under the user ftpuser.  i get 550 directory does not exist. what i dont understand, is why? cant be permissions. the home directory doesnt belong to ftpuser. and the upload folder doesnt either, but ftpuser can do anything to that folder15:48
PraxiI'm running a openerp server through that apache, so I know its doing something, is it possible its getting info from somewhere else?15:48
Sivikmneptok, what do you mean why ftp?15:48
elijahjohnm: Thanks, I ran it and it went great, but the httpd.conf file was not updated so based on what Praxi said I think it ships empty15:48
_Marcusmneptok: The issue he is having is that it wont start up and is terminating with status code 115:48
Antigone3010i'd like to know, is there a way to download ubuntu packages ? i try to install some on a offline machine, i have to use a usb stick15:48
pfifonishttal2, your not going to get any performance from a sotfraid, you need realraid for that15:49
mneptokSivik: i mean "why use FTP when SFTP is far easier and also encrypted?"15:49
elijahI guess I need to figure something else out about why virtual hosts are not working then15:49
AcidRainbtw, im using ftpdpro15:49
AcidRainno wait. im using pureftpd :)15:49
Sivikmneptok, wow, i'm stupid, didn't even think about that.15:49
johnmelijah: it definately ships with content. Does the file exist - but it's empty? if so, remove it. Buit you should now have a httpd.conf.dist which you can copy in its place15:49
nishttal2pfifo, Jyothis so my rationale was to put everything on RAID0 and hourly incremental backups of everything to RAID115:49
mneptokSivik: sudo apt-get install openssh-server. done.15:49
Sivikmneptok, thats way easier and I totally forgot you could do it without needing any additional software15:49
Sivikyea, ssh is already running.15:49
_MarcusSivik: Are you using the newest vsftpd version?15:50
mneptokSivik: then all users need are accounts and FTP clients that do SFTP (e.g. Filezilla)15:50
nishttal2pfifo, yeah nothing beats realraid.. but i read somewhere that software raid0 would give better read/write than no raid at all15:50
elijahjohnm: Yeah, it exists but is empty, i will remove it15:50
Sivikmneptok, I just didn't think about using sftp15:50
Sivikthat makes too much damn sense.15:50
Sivik_Marcus, installing from repos, its 2.3.215:50
Sivikbut it doesn't matter15:50
mneptokSivik: problem solved. go remove vsftpd stuffs.15:50
Sivik_Marcus, I will just use sftp15:50
johnmelijah: check there isn't a .dist version next to it now. If not, delete it and reinstall.15:50
_MarcusSivik: Well if vsftpd wont start up, how will sftp work?15:50
Sivik_Marcus, cause ssh is already running.  I just logged into sftp without any issues.15:51
_MarcusSivik: Oh. Okay15:51
elijahjohnm: There wasn't a dist version, I deleted it, reinstalled and it did not put the file back15:51
Sivikmneptok, too early, just not thinking well.15:51
pfifonishttal2, raid0 isnt going to provide any performance, raid1 will provide a bit better read performance under a few circumstances, neither provide write performance (use raid 5 for that)15:51
elijahjohnm: What does yours say, if you have one?15:52
mneptokSivik: i asked that initial question because i see *tons* of people trying to install FTP without really needing it all.15:52
Sivikmneptok, yea, I always forget about sftp15:52
SivikI should know better15:52
mneptokSivik: IOW, you hardly made an uncommon mistake.15:52
Siviki'm a darn admin for a large company after all15:52
nishttal2pfifo, so why would anyone ever do RAID015:52
SivikRAID0 = bad15:52
johnmelijah: let me see if I have an install - 11.04?15:52
pfifonishttal2, raid0 increases disk space15:52
Sivikpfifo, sorta15:53
elijahjohnm: 11.1015:53
Sivikpfifo, just allows one partition accross multiple drives15:53
mneptokSivik: "remote file access with end-to-end encryption has been anabled." <--- then point it out on the performance review.15:53
nishttal2Sivik, why is RAID0 bad?15:53
liam__ny one know where i can  get the skype 2.1 package15:53
Sivikcause its stripping and its not got any redundancy15:53
Sivikalmost nullifies the point of RAID15:54
nishttal2Sivik, yeah but I am backing up the RAID0 volume to RAID1 for redundancy15:54
SivikThats what RAID10 is for15:54
pfifonishttal2, then you should just make one big raid115:54
SunTsuSivik: no, because it gives you more space and faster access, so RAID0 is good for large filespaces, you don't need redundancy on15:54
nishttal2pfifo, problem is it RAID1 would have slow writes15:54
SivikSunTsu, yea, thats true but I personally thing its dumb to just run RAID015:54
mneptoknishttal2: you can use LVM to do the job of RAID015:54
pfifonishttal2, raid10 is an option, but since you only have 2 disks, your not gaining any performance, you would need 4 disks for that15:55
elijahjohnm: Nevermind, httpd.conf is deprecated, apache2.conf is where it is at now a ways - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5680993#post568099315:55
nishttal2pfifo, Sivik .. another reason i had setup this way is because the 2 disks I have are of different sizes.. 1TB and 1.5 TB15:56
Praxielijah, so I wasn't crazy!15:56
zykotick9mneptok: the one with all the "good" alternatives today ;)15:56
nishttal2so i have 850GB on each allocated to RAID1 and the remaining on each totals to 650GB RAID0 volume15:56
SunTsuSivik: it depends on what you need. As long as you know what you're doing it's OK. I wouldn't count on RAID as "data security measure" anyway, RAID is good for keeping a server running in case of HD failure, but it daoesn't make backup obsolete anyhow15:56
johnmelijah: ah, explains it :)15:56
SivikSunTsu, yea, backups are always needed15:57
SivikWe have customer that are like, We have raid, we don't need backups and then their raid fails multiple drives, full data loss15:57
elijahPraxi: nope, and neither am I (thank goodness), they left it there for historical reasons I suppose.15:57
pfifonishttal2, the slight performance you gain from a softraid isnt worth the effort your putting into this.15:57
venik212any ideas how to get rid of the WAITING FOR HEADERS stuck situation?15:57
elijahjohnm and praxi - thanks for your help15:57
nishttal2pfifo, well i was thinking performance (if at all) was just a side effect.. main goal was backup/redundancy15:58
SunTsuSivik: it's like a friend of mine: "Oh, I have a airbag, I don't need a safety belt"15:58
ryannathansis a Mellanox MHEA28-XSC PCI-E express Infiniband Host Adapter natively supported?15:58
SunTsu"an airbag", of course15:58
SivikI know what you mean SunTsu15:58
sipiorSunTsu: cute :-)15:58
sipiori may steal that.15:58
pfifonishttal2, redundancy is a real benefit of raid1, but the raid0 isnt redundant so theres no need for it15:59
nishttal2pfifo, yeah but RAID0 is helping my combine the disparate disks i have into 1 volume15:59
sipiornishttal2: look into lvm.16:00
pfifonishttal2, no its not, raid 1 can combine all the disks, without raid016:00
Ca11umHow can I remove the Guest access?16:00

AufwindIf I may ask, is somone here an expert in setting up an ssh server on an ubuntu machine? I desperately need some help to figure out why I cannot login onto my machine (A) from an other machine (B) although I can login from machine A to machine B succesfully by ssh.16:02
nishttal2sipior, can you point me to a link that i can read up about lvm16:02
sipiorSunTsu: i just found the quotation humorous. sorry i said anything.16:03
pfifonishttal2, you may want to make 5 500gb partitions and merge them all as a single raid5, then you make use of all the disk space, and get redundancy, and youll get more diskspace than a raid 1 would provide16:03

nishttal2mneptok, pfifo sipior actually my motherboard supports raid.. but i am told thats fake raid and worse than what Ubuntu will do16:06
mneptokCa11um: is that person using the proprietary ATI drivers, or the FLOSS "radeon" driver.16:06
Ca11umThe former16:06
pfifonishttal2, fakeraid support in linux is not very good16:06
=== fiz0 is now known as fiz-
mneptokCa11um: dunno if CCC comes with the proprietary drivers. i use "radeon:16:06
sipiornishttal2: my general feeling is: if you really want hardware raid, buy a decent high-end card. the crap on most motherboards does not really qualify. you'll likely have better performance, and fewer bytes will come up missing with software raid.16:07
nishttal2pfifo, if i setup a LVM.. can i have the /boot partition on there16:07
applesouceHey I need help, my Ubuntu doesn't show my USB Drive16:08

mgskHi, all. How do I make sure a service is going to start up when the server is restarted, sshd for example?16:08
sipiornishttal2: well, that makes your decision very simple :-)16:08
pfifonishttal2, softraid that your already using IS lvm16:08
mneptoknishttal2: yes, you can. but it's a really bad idea as then you get into chicken/egg problems.16:08
mgskLast time I restarted my server, I couldn't ssh back in xD16:08
nishttal2pfifo, ok.. the wikipedia article is misleading then... The installers for the Arch Linux, CrunchBang, Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, Mandriva, MontaVista Linux, openSUSE, Pardus, Slackware, SLED, SLES, and Ubuntu distributions are LVM-aware and can install a bootable system with a root filesystem on a logical volume16:08
elijahjohnm and praxi - It appears httpd.conf isn't actually deprecated but just for user configurations - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2567432/ubuntu-apache-httpd-conf-or-apache2-conf16:09
mneptoknishttal2: it's not misleading. because you can in theory, but never should in practice.16:09
pfifonishttal2, afaik grub does not support lvm, but I could be wrong16:09
nishttal2ok :)16:09
AufwindEvilResistance, Dude, you deserve a cake or something. It works now. I don't now why, but something you told me must have delivered the solution. Thanks a loooot!16:10
mneptoknishttal2: the booting kernel lives in /boot. that kernel knows how to deal with LVM. if it's on an LVM volume itself .... chicken/egg.16:10
rzx237mgsk: run nmap against your server can show if it running the sshd16:10

pfifoorionsonofneptun, `sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source` is all I had todo to get the driver working17:08

AcidRaini have no option but to delete everything it appears17:09
mneptokupset: gParted works for the vast majority of people. they do not lose the ability to format. so ... what caused you to have this issue? seemingly Android. that makes it an Android problem.17:09

carl-ericI have configured my marble mouse according to this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Logitech_Marblemouse_USB with the xorg.conf.d file. The file is read, the right options scroll by in the xorg log, but the middle mouse button emulation (by pressing left+right) does not work. Any ideas?17:12
q0sAcidRain, i would think that your whole ff profile has messed up. export your bookmarks and the other stuff u need, then backup the old profile and delete ~/.mozilla . after this let ff create a new one17:12

AcidRaini have no bookmarks lol17:13
UrBBruce___: did it help?17:14
pfiforaces, no sda5 and 6 are you root and swap, their not missing. and thats not why your system is taking time too boot. are you running any extra startup scripts on boot? whats in your /etc/rc.local17:14
orionsonofneptunok its installed the os says firmware still missing is thier an activation commad or what next17:14
Bruce___UrB:  Not really...still trying to figure it out   :s17:14
q0sAcidRain, sorry, i dont know exactly where those settings are stored. but the most practical solution is to create a new one. otherwise u can spend hours with keeping some of the files in ~/.mozilla and to test if everything went fine17:15
pfifoAcidRain, I know where passwords are sored17:16
AcidRainq0s: too late. lol17:
