unheedingso i have the flgrx driver installed, and now the boot splash screen doesn't show up - it's just a blank screen until the login screen pops up.   is there a way to fix this?04:28
holsteinunheeding: is it broken?04:28
unheedingno, it just doesnt show the splash screen04:28
holsteinsure.. is that a problem?04:29
unheedingnot really, i am just a perfectionist04:29
holsteinunheeding: i would ask amd to give you a "perfect" driver.. otherwise, you might just want to tolerate it04:29
XRS1it is for me.   embedded systems running on flash memory dont show the splash screen and take longer to load. people dont know the thing is on and working properly so they power it down while its booting and get all mad wanting to know why it doesnt work04:30
XRS1non issue after they see it successfully boot and understand it works fine, it just takes a second to turn on04:32

phunyguy_workcan someone help me wrap my head around what I am doing wrong with Gigolo and SSH?  In Gigolo, I put in the name of the Bookmark, the IP of the server running OpenSSH, the username I connect as, and the folder I want it to mount on the remote server.  I click OK, and when it goes to connect, I enter my password.14:59
phunyguy_workProblem is14:59
phunyguy_workproblem is, it ignores what you put in for the remote folder to mount locally, and just maps to my home folder on the server.14:59
v1adimirdoes it work with filezilla?14:59
v1adimiror some other program15:00
phunyguy_workI have no idea.  Was trying to stay Ubuntu-supported.15:00
v1adimirmidnight commander, whatever15:00
v1adimiri mean just 2 check whether it's an SSH and/or server problem, or some local config15:00
v1adimiroic.. could be settings15:01
GridCubephunyguy_work, do you have gvfs-backends installed?15:02
phunyguy_workno it connects fine, just to /home/phunyguy15:02
phunyguy_workI am not on Xubuntu, but #ubuntu was cluttered and Gigolo comes standard on Xubuntu15:02
phunyguy_workso I should have that, yes15:02
phunyguy_workI am on standard Ubuntu.15:02
GridCubephunyguy_work, check anyway15:03
phunyguy_workdid, and do.15:03
phunyguy_workI can make it work with smb instead, but gvfsd-smb gives me trouble15:04
phunyguy_workwhen accessing anything from the mounted folder for non-gvfs aware apps, the process deadlocks after some time15:05
GridCubei dont really know much about networking, you might want to check this? http://howto.blbosti.com/2010/09/mount-a-remote-ssh-folder-in-ubuntu-cmd-and-gui/15:05
phunyguy_workso I am trying SSH instead15:05
phunyguy_workKI've looked at that link already15:05
phunyguy_workI googled it.15:05
GridCubemmhm yes15:05
phunyguy_worklast night and this morning.  Nothing mentions that folder option in Gigolo15:06
phunyguy_workand I like how Gigolo will dynamically mount when a share becomes reachable.15:06
phunyguy_workI just want to find a working solution with the dynamics in mind15:06
phunyguy_work(laptop that I use at home, and keep connected to home via VPN when I am at work or on the road)15:07
phunyguy_workthe plot thickens.  I can click the mounted folder that comes up in Nautilus, and then hit the back arrow and get to /15:21
phunyguy_work...not ideal.15:21
wonderworldit's ugly in general, that you need gigolo to do thinks thunar should be able to do on it's own15:33
wonderworldbookmarking sftp connections has been broken forever15:35
phunyguy_workI'm not using Thunar15:36
phunyguy_workand I said I need it to be dynamic15:36
phunyguy_worknot have to moint it the first time I need to use it.15:36
phunyguy_workespecially for apps that aren't gvfs aware.15:36
wonderworldyou can do it with /etc/fstab then15:37
wonderworldor use sshfs if it's ssh/sftp15:37
phunyguy_workwonderworld, thats not dynamic.15:37
phunyguy_workif I put the laptop to sleep, take it to work, then connect it back up via VPN, it needs to "just work"15:38
phunyguy_work...or things break.15:38
wonderworldsure, you can write a script that checks for the host being up periodically and mount it15:38
phunyguy_workwell the thought was, why not use something that is already available.  Guess I have to code.15:38
phunyguy_workand I have a similar script for my ssh socks proxy.  Problem is, its not dependable.  the ssh process doesnt realize it went down.15:39
phunyguy_workso it never dies leading to the next iteration to reconnect.15:39
phunyguy_workI am also not very good at scripting.15:40
wonderworldyou could run it as cronjob every minute, check if the connection is still there, if not kill ssh and reconnect15:40
wonderworldnot too hard... 6liner15:40
phunyguy_worksounds like a lot of work that I don't know how to do.15:40
phunyguy_workmaybe you can guide me15:41
phunyguy_workgive me a baseline and then I can work from there15:41
wonderworldk, tell me what exactly you need to do15:41
phunyguy_workand sshfs is nice.15:41
phunyguy_workI need it to mount the filesystem to my laptop when it is available, and leave it alone if not.15:41
phunyguy_work(or umount()15:41
phunyguy_workor unmount)**15:42
phunyguy_workthis is functional for now15:42
phunyguy_work ijust like dhaving the bookmarks there15:42
SiilenceJust periodically check your mount points. If it doesnt exist, mount it.15:42
SiilenceIf it fails, email you.15:42
phunyguy_workffs I cant type.15:42
phunyguy_workplus my wife needs it to be easy.... lol15:43
phunyguy_workget tired of hearing "how do I get to the pictures again?"15:43
wonderworldbuy her an iphone :)15:43
phunyguy_workI suppose I could symlink the crap out of it.15:43
phunyguy_workwith sshfs15:43
phunyguy_workjust will have broken symlinks if the connection isn't active.15:44
wonderworlddo you use ssh interactive logins or do you use key-based logins?15:44
phunyguy_workinteractive, but I can use sshpass15:46
phunyguy_workI would imagine anyway15:46
phunyguy_workI had to use it for my socks proxy script.15:47
phunyguy_workbut that is much dirtier than what you would write I am sure15:47
phunyguy_workpretty much a while sleep 1; do sshpass blah blah ssh xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -D 1080; done.15:47
wonderworldhow about somthing like -> test -e /media/myshare/somefile || my_mountscript15:48
wonderworldwould check if somefile is available, if not run mountscript15:48
phunyguy_workwhat about killing the disconnected ssh session?15:49
phunyguy_workif it works like my socks script it wont15:49
phunyguy_workwill just sit there playing dumb.15:49
wonderworldyou can do that in my_mountscript. "killall sshfs"15:49
wonderworldor if you have the PID of your sshfs session stored, you can kill -kill $PID15:49
phunyguy_workmaybe a looped script would be better with the PID of sshfs logged15:50
phunyguy_workcheck connection, then kill if the server doesnt respond to a ping15:50
phunyguy_workthen check for availability every 60 seconds15:50
wonderworldor check any file on your share15:50
phunyguy_workbut this doesnt fix the bookmark issue.15:50
phunyguy_workhowever it does show up as a local drive in nautilus15:51
wonderworldyou can make your scruipt dynamic and pass it variables for your different shares. then create nice desktop icons for every connection15:51
phunyguy_workwell I will tell you I am not on Xubuntu15:51
phunyguy_workI am on reg Ubuntu15:51
phunyguy_workI asked here because gigolo is in Xubuntu standard.15:52
wonderworldbut you won't need to do that anyway, because your script will make shure that all your shares are available all the time15:52
phunyguy_workso the same may not apply15:52
wonderworldno difference with ubuntu15:52
phunyguy_workits why i liked the idea of Gigolo, smb access worked well, just deadlocked with non-gvfs aware apps15:52
wonderworldif you don't want them to be available all the time, you need to create some bokmark concept15:53
wonderworldgvfs is a pain15:53
phunyguy_workno they need to be there.\15:53
wonderworldnot really stable15:53
phunyguy_workI agree.15:53
phunyguy_workbut the concept is fantastic15:53
phunyguy_workI will do this.15:56
wonderworldnice, enjoy :)15:56
phunyguy_workuse Gigolo, let it connect however it wants, and just create symlinks, like ~/Music/Main Collection for my music folder on the share, ~/Pictures/Main Collection for pictures15:57
phunyguy_work~/Downloads/torrents for the torrents share15:57
phunyguy_worksounds reasonable.15:57
phunyguy_workand a single folder with the root of the /media folder on the server.15:58
phunyguy_workso far so good.  putting it in a script to replicate to the rest of my machines16:04
phunyguy_workhmm yeah wonderworld, this will have to be a custom script.  ssh gets just as confused as my proxy script16:33
phunyguy_workso I will have to write one that launches sshfs, and grabs the PID.16:33
phunyguy_workthen checks once a minute for connectivity and kills it if there isnt16:33
phunyguy_workstarts it if there is.16:33
wonderworldyes, sounds good.16:44
wonderworldmaybe it would be even easier to setup the sshfs connections in /etc/fstab16:48
wonderworldbut i have no idea if this is stable....16:49
phunyguy_workwonderworld, ssh will do the same thing16:49
phunyguy_workit will never disconnect16:49
phunyguy_workand get ALL confused, same with Samba16:49
phunyguy_workat least Gigolo tries to manage it if it doesnt exist16:50
