naztyhow do i get rid of ubuntu after installing it using wubi.exe00:02
tomreynUltimaKR: because optical media sucks even more than magnetism based media.00:02
tomreynit may work on one drive but not the other00:03
tomreynin fact this is pretty common00:03
UltimaKRtomreyn: so my only option really then is to try to use a program to allow the PC to boot from USB, so that I can use lubuntu from there?00:03
UltimaKRwould i need to burn it somehow or just copy the iso to a flash drive?00:04
tomreynthat or a tftp / etherboot <tomreyn> you could still try the chainloading approach, or to boot from network00:04
tomreynUltimaKR: i'm not terribly keen on carrying on with this00:05
tomreynjoggers: we can talk here00:05
Dr_Willis_i would just put the hd in a usb enclosure, install to it from a differnt pc.. then put the hd back00:05
Dr_Willis_or set it up with grub2 to boot an iso file from small partion at the front. ;)00:06
Dr_Willis_netbooting may be a easier solution.00:07

Septiman00bz: well if ubuntu's in the VM, you can do one of two things: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair01:13
Septiman00bz: either mount the boot-repair disk image or mount the ubuntu install iso01:14
RollinV2noobz, if you have the cash using vmware + vmware tools makes the ubuntu vm management a lot easier01:14
Septimavmware player is free01:14
RollinV2yes, workstation is much improved but not worth the cash for average users01:15
* n00bzz kicks her ISP01:15
Septiman00bzz: you can use boot repair one of two ways: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair the difference with a VM is that you load the iso up in the vm instead of burning it to a cd01:16

ATIoh ok.. no problem.01:19
Septiman00bzz: honestly, usb modems are just an odd thing01:19
n00bzzi struggled septima, since i could only make changes to ubuntu in my VM, while i look at the instructions01:20
kevinchdumb question, how can I find which files are using my boot drives space?01:20
kevinchlike the biggest files/directories.  I have other hdd's mounted that I don't care about, they're nearly empty01:20
Septiman00bzz: well doing it in the VM won't work.. because your VM is getting it's connection routed through your host (windows)01:20
Septiman00bzz: i'd print the instructions and use your other install01:21
SolarisBoykevinch: you can do this in the terminal with (du or find or ls) and you can try in the gui with 'disk usage analyzer'01:21
kevinchyeah this is ubuntu server so i'll have to use du or something01:22
n00bzzi'd need to dload usb_switchmode for that septima?01:22

icerootb44: no01:40
icerootb44: that command will not update your packages01:40
icerootb44: why you want 13.04?01:40
b44iceroot: I don't want 13.04 ... I just want the "testing" mode of 10.04 instead of "stable"01:41
icerootb44: and what is the testing-mode on 10.04?01:41
ATItomreyn: alright went through all the instructions and rebooted.  I still get the same results.01:41
ATItomreyn: could it be that I need to configure the xorg.conf?01:41
Dr_Willis_WeThePeople:  with my nvidia systems.. I just plug them in. make sure i got hte nvidia drivers installed and with 12.10 twinview auto kicks in.01:41
b44hm... maybe I misunderstood something. iceroot, what I want is to install the newest openjdk and scala packages. That's why I wanted to change to "testing packages" instead of "stable packages". E.g stable java-jdk is v6, but testing is v701:42
WeThePeopledr_willis_, i have the other monitor plugged in and its not auto detecting it01:42

ATItomreyn:  even though I ran "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" no xorg.conf was created under /etc/X1101:43
tomreynATI: you shouldn't need to configure xorg, it should be automatic.01:43
ATItomreyn: the xorg.conf file is empty.01:43
tomreynATI: xorg populates the contents of this file in memory when it starts up01:43
tomreynso it is never written to disk01:44
iceroottomreyn: udev is managing the settings and its created at every boot.01:45
ATItomreyn: oh hmm.. didn't know that.  anyways no drivers appear to be loading up correctly.. all I can select under display is 1024x768 and the refresh rate is 0 hz for the laptop screen!01:45

iceroottomreyn: if you want to overwrite the detecting of udev you have to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:45
tomreyniceroot: we don't want to for now. udev writes an xorg.conf? where to?01:46
iceroottomreyn: no01:46

ATItomreyn: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1453774/01:46
iceroottomreyn: if you want an own config you have to create xorg.conf. everything in that file will overwrite the settings from udev01:46

b44missing dependency "libjansi-java" for installing "scala 2.9.2-400"02:40
b44How to install that? it's not in listed in packages..02:40
ATItomreyn: maybe I should just try reinstalling xubuntu again............02:40
tomreynATI: so you're saying it worked initially and broken when you tried fglrx?02:43
ATItomreyn: I don't quite remember... but I don't think it ever worked.....  then I got some instructions to try installing vaapi... that didn't work, and it installed fglrx which I later purged..02:44
ATItomreyn: fglrx works.. but it feels slower when using mythtv under 12.04.. the problem was 12.04 and opensource is that the sound wasn't working02:45
ATItomreyn: that is.. sound through hdmi.02:46
tomreyni'Ve also read reports on fglrx being slower than radeon (if it works)02:47
ATIyeah.. I read that if I had kernel 3.3+ installed that sound was supported.. but I couldn't get that working.02:48
tomreynand here it says that the "[KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported." problem reported in Xorg.0.log can be prevented by disabling the framebuffer: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Radeon#Kernels_.3E.3D3.0.002:48
ATII mean I couldn't install 3.302:48
ATIoh let me read that02:48
ATIdo I disable the framebuffer in the xorg.conf?02:49
tomreynwell, the gentoo people did it by rebuilding their kernel, that's not really the preferred option for us.02:50
tomreynyou could probably blacklist the module, or maybe it's possible in xorg.conf, too. the xorg.conf you created on the live cd sets a lower priority on it, this can be sufficient to fix the issue, too02:51
ATII can reinstall xubuntu again just to check that I didn't set anything weird the first time around.....02:51
ATIhmm.. ok.  let me look into how to disable the framebuffer though xorg02:52
tomreynthe other issue when you disable the framebuffer device, though, is that i think you loose the failsafe X, too, i.e. if the radeon driver doesn'T work you then get no output at all02:52
tomreynno grpahical output, that is02:52
tomreyni think you would best try the xorg.conf from the live CD now02:53
ATII did try the xorg.conf from the live cd ...02:54

ATIjust add " vga=normal nomodeset"?02:57
treenomI am having a really hard time with my wireless, if any one could point me in the right direction, it would be amazing02:57
tomreynATI: vga=nofb OR vga=normal should work, yes, why nomodeset?03:00
ATItomreyn: oh  I don't know.. didn't check..03:01
tomreynATI: i guess you should actually put the radeon.modeset=1 in again, to force it03:01
tomreynas well as the vga option, then update-grub, reboot, rename xorg.conf (so it is no longer used), reboot again.03:02
ATIok give me a second.03:02

tomreynATI: not being able to SSH in is strange... anyway, do a ctrl-alt-delete, then hold down shift when it boots03:13
ATIuse set gfxpayload=vga=nofb before linux command instead text is deprecated03:13
ATIerror unrecognized number03:13
ATIyou need to load the kernel first03:13
Septimafsvieira: then i'd stop using unity03:13
tomreynATI: holding down shift will bring up the grub menu, where you can then edit out the problematic lines so you can boot up fine again.03:14
ATIsorry that is.  text is deprecated.  use set gfxpayload=vga=nofb before linux command instead. then the error stuff03:14
ATIoh ok03:14
fsvieiraSeptima, yeah thats what I am going to do, but I really start liking unity... but yeah I think I should stop03:14
tomreynATI: where is this message from, and where do we use "text"?03:15
ATIthat's when I try to run ubuntu under grub03:15

Sazpaimonis there a way to have unity do windows-style alt+tab where it doesn't group applications and just shows all windows?03:16
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
tomreynATI: maybe "nofb" is an alias for "text". anyway, the easiest option now is probably just to remove all the extra options and boot it up then03:17
fsvieiraSeptima, what I was asking is if I can do something... maybe I am doing something wrong03:17
tomreynATI: i'm afraid i will need to wrap it up pretty soon, it's kind of late here, or early rather.03:17
ATIoh.. I tried the vga=normal instead.. and it loads.. but I still get the same problem as before... where the vesa drivers are loading up03:17
ATItomreyn: that's okay.. thanks a lot for your help03:18
tomreynATI: another option you have is to try updated kernel + video drivers, i.e. xorg-edgers.03:18
Septimafsvieira: i haven't heard of anything to improve unity in that aspect. i personally just went the xfce route instead, when i experienced the 'show nothing but my wallpaper' bug between unity and amd/ati cards03:18
ATItomreyn: ok.. I will look into that03:19
ZNaughthello, could someone help me with nvidia driver install?03:19

ZiberI've updated my /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding file, to allow my server to be an IPv6 router. How do I make it take effect?03:22
tomreynATI: the other way around might be better, though03:22
tomreynATI: since when you have xorg-edgers and it works worse than now, downgrading is annoying, but if you want to reinstall anyways then: no loss03:22
ATIhow do I add that repository?03:24
tomreynATI: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xorg xserver-xorg-video-ati && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade03:26
fsvieiraSeptima, ok tx03:26
ZNaughtcan anyone help with nvidia driver install?03:27
tomreynATI:  also do this in the end: sudo apt-get install mesa03:27
tomreynATI: and run "COLUMNS=120 dpkg -l mesa" and make sure it reports something with "sarvatt" on the version column03:28
tomreynonly then did the upgraded packages get installed properly03:29
tomreynATI: xorg-edgers also has an updated fglrx driver which you can also try if the open source one doesn't work.03:29

Alexa22Is ubuntu a good choice to put on my netbook 1g Ram 200g hdd03:32
SeptimaZNaught: for removing the restricted modules03:32
ZNaughtSeptima, will this require me to uninstall the old drivers and reinstall?03:33
SeptimaZNaught: i'd uninstall them, and make sure everything is cleaned up, then install the nvidia drivers that you downloaded from nvidia's site03:34
GarheadeAlexa22: It should work just fine on a netbook.03:34
ZNaughthow would I do that Septima? Heck, I dont even know how to run a .run file. I am trying linux for first time03:34
SeptimaZNaught: in a console use the 'cd' command to change to the directory where they were downloaded.. for instance: cd ~/Downloads03:35

Alexa22hey is Java a good coding language to know for programming linux apps?03:36
ZNaughtSeptima, what about uninstalling?03:37
SeptimaZNaught: well for the restricted modules it speaks about, you'd do something like: sudo apt-get --purge remove restrictedmodules03:37
SeptimaZNaught: for the files it specifies, i'd delete them in the terminal.. using the rm command03:38
SeptimaZNaught: it also says to purge and remove nvidia-glx03:38
mark___can someone recommend a good vnc/screensharing solution for ubuntu? i seem to remember a newish solution coming out a fwe months ago. any ideas?03:39

ZiberAnyone familiar with radvd, is there anything else I have to do except put my prefixes in the config file and reload it in order for my server to start advertising IPv6 addresses on my LAN?03:40
SeptimaZNaught: looks like you need to do: sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config xserver-xorg-dev03:40
SeptimaZNaught: and additionally install the linux headers for your kernel version.. you can get your version by typing uname -a03:41
SeptimaZNaught: if you get all that set up there, i'd try just running the .run file03:41
tomreynATI: hmm, maybe the PPA didn't install properly then. got any error messages while setting it up (using the long line of commands i posted)?03:42
ZNaughtSeptima, how do I install the headers? Sorry03:42
SeptimaZNaught: sudo apt-get install03:42
MrWibbleshey guys03:42
tomreynATI: this line: <tomreyn> ATI: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xorg xserver-xorg-video-ati && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade03:42
ZNaughtSeptima, just that line?03:42
MrWibblesi'm having issues with permissions.. is there anyway to apply  user:whatever:r-x to all the directories contained in /a/b/c03:43
MrWibblesbut not their subdirectories03:43
SeptimaZNaught: if you type like: sudo apt-get install linux-header, then hit tab a few times, i'll list what's available.. like i said, you need to get the ones to match your kernel version, which you can find out by typing uname -a03:43
Jordan_UMrWibbles: Yes, but first why do you want to do this?03:43
MrWibblesso that an application can access its files03:43
MrWibblesit need r-x on every directory to the application directory03:44
Jordan_UMrWibbles: What application? What files?03:44
MrWibbleseach application has it's own system user03:44
ZNaughtSeptima, ok to recap: Uninstall the NVidia drivers by installing the linux headers, then remove the restricted modules and files, then run the .run file?03:44
MrWibblesthe applications files.. different depending on what language the application is writtain in03:44
SeptimaZNaught: yes03:45
MrWibbleshttp://stackoverflow.com/questions/8916056/acl-along-a-directory-path << shit03:45
tomreynATI: packages available in this repository: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa/+packages?field.status_filter=published&field.series_filter=quantal    - you also want the linux update to 3.7 and newest linux-firmware03:45
ZNaughtok thanks. I will give it a shot03:45
Ziberanyone with radvd experience might be able to help me get my server to start advertising addresses?03:45
Jordan_UMrWibbles: Normally such directories are created automatically, and with the correct permissions. The fact that you're asking this question makes me wonder if there is something else wrong which needs to be fixed rather than worked around.03:45
tomreynATI: the 'mesa' package may be virtual only and thus not be listed in dpkg -l output. but "apt-cache search mesa" should find it.03:46
ATItomreyn: is there anyway I can just download the packages manually?03:46
MrWibblesjordan_u:  ok.. application doesn't exist... other applications do  /srv/dd/application_name gets created.. r-x permissions need to be added to /srv and /srv/dd03:46
MrWibblesthe user only gets created when the application is created03:47
tomreynATI: click on the links on the page i just sent you, but using the PPA does work, and you should use it if by all means possible to be able to properly revolce dependencies.03:47
MrWibblesone option would be to add all the applications to a group and then give the group permissions03:47
ATIbasically the error is this W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/mesa9/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found03:47

tomreynATI:  how did this mesa9 get there?03:48
ATII might have tried putting a mesa9 repository in there...03:48
tomreynATI: why?03:48
Jordan_UMrWibbles: I still don't understand your situation, but "chown user:group /path/to/directories/*/" should change the user and group of all directories within the directory "/path/to/directories/". Try with simply "echo /path/to/directories/*/" first to confirm that that glob gets you the results you want.03:49

ATIoh ... sorry.03:50
ATIhow do I remove those repositories?03:50
tomreynATI: i think you had a typo on the apt-add-repository command.03:50
MrWibblesJordan: the stackoverload question pretty much says you can't do it03:51
MrWibblesso i have to apply r-x to each individual directory03:51
Jordan_UMrWibbles: That glob should allow you to use whatever command you want with all of the directories within another directory. I have no idea what stack overload question you're referencing. For more information on globs see http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide/Patterns .03:52
tomreynATI repository definitions added by apt-add-repository are stored at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ - identify the one which has "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net ..." (i.e. blank space behind the .net) and delete the file. then run ap-add-repository again03:52
ATItomreyn: I entered "sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa".  it looks like it's working03:52
Successhey guys I left for a while and everything seems to be working now, thanks for the help!03:52
tomreynATI: okay, then it should work indeed. maybe the broken line is one from an earlier attempt then03:53

pkhfinding it tough to put together a google query for this... is it posible to 'cd' into a folder that's been mounted over without umounting the other? (e.g. / is part1, /home is part2, /home on part1 still contains crap, want to delete.)04:19

ubottuMacLaddy: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience05:25
erncicbluesnow: hmm. that makes no sense. It is a straight dns lookup.05:25
somsipsmacktalk: I have used remmina. it worked ok05:26
bluesnowerncic: Any idea what the second part means?05:26
bluesnowSays "LWP: Protocol::http::Socket: Bad hostname 'HTTP' at /usr/share/perl5/LWP/protocol/http.pm'05:27
MacLaddyI have Windows Vista on a 1TB HDD. I just purchased a second 1TB HDD. I would like to Install Ubuntu. Should I park it next to Vista on the same HDD, or on the second HDD?05:27
erncicbluesnow: no, I don't know how perl got involved at all.05:27
bluesnowerncic: Hmm :( Whatever VPN I connected to yesterday must have really messed with my networking.05:28
erncicbluesnow: I got to tell you, I am at a loss now with that showing up.05:28
somsipMacLaddy: if your Vista partition fills the drive, maybe easier to put ubuntu on 1TB. Though it's nothing but preference and how much fiddling about you need to do to set it up how you want it05:28
bluesnowerncic: This is strange because other people in my office have connected to the same VPN without this much trouble.05:28
smacktalksomsip I don't like remina...doesn't work that great05:28
bluesnowerncic: They said the VPN messed with their routing tables, but it was fine after disconnecting and restarting.05:28
somsipsmacktalk: ok05:28
bluesnowI seem to have tried everything though.05:29
erncicbluesnow: you can do a 'route flush' to clear the routing tables, but that does not take into account a dig failure like that.05:29
bluesnowerncic: route flush returns flushing 'inet' routing table not supported.05:30
MacLaddyThank you, somsip. Second question. I would like to make a small partition next on the same HDD as Ubuntu just for playing with other versions. Triple boot. If I do this, can Ubuntu and the second Linux OS share programs, or must they each have their own?05:30
bluesnowerncic: It took about a minute before the GET /index.html HTTP/1.1 returned 'Can't connect to HTTP:80 (bad hostname)'05:31
erncicbluesnow: what does just 'route' return…. it should be your default gateway unless you are running something more complex on this box.05:31
somsipMacLaddy: separate programs. they can share some data (media) but you're probably asking if you try to share program data (config files, etc). File syatem layouts can vary from distro to distro and different package versions too05:31
somsip*asking too much05:31
bluesnowerncic: It returns Kernel IP Routing Table, and routing table headers below that. The table is completely empty.05:32
MacLaddyThanks somsip.05:32
somsipMacLaddy: np05:32
doctorlyis it possible to rollback my kernel to the previous kernel??05:32
erncicbluesnow: no default route at all?05:33
bluesnowerncic: No, I don't see any.05:33
bluesnowJust Kernel IP Routing Table, routing table headers below that, and nothing else.05:33
bluesnowThe headers are like 'Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface'05:33
erncicbluesnow: ok, are you using a  dynamic or static ip?05:34
bluesnowerncic: Dynamic05:34
somsipdoctorly: temporarily or permanent?05:34
bluesnowerncic: The routers at my home/office assign my laptop IP addresses, I think.05:35
doctorlysomsip: from what I have found, it looks like my problem is with the newest kernel and the drivers05:35
doctorlysomsip: so I guess permenent05:35

somsipdoctorly: what version of ubuntu?05:37

ouyesdo you know where is the deb package, when you install some applications via ubuntu software center?05:42
somsipdoctorly: it may be as simple as uninstalling the current kernel, grabbing the .deb for the old one, and sudo dpkg -i kernel*.deb to get the initrd links updated05:42

joekoocc1_Can anyone help me? My computer connected to web is still using cable. there is no problem running on window using wireless, but not on ubuntu. Why? and how to resolve this? Thanks.05:44
aeon-ltdjoekoocc1_: you might need drivers05:46
bluesnowerncic: Okay, that added the route to my kernel IP routing table, but I still can't connect to anything05:46
bluesnowerncic: Is there another routing table somewhere else in ubuntu that might have been messed with?05:46
erncicbluesnow: not that I am aware of.05:47
bluesnowerncic: I wonder if I need to add other routes to the routing table..05:48
erncicbluesnow: firewall?05:48
bluesnowerncic: Don't have a firewall05:48
bluesnowerncic: By default gateway, you meant the gateway for my internet connection, right?05:49
=== redwar is now known as thegreatspace
erncicbluesnow: yes. 'iptables -L -n | less'05:49
bluesnowerncic: That gives chain INPUT (policy accept) chain forward policy accept chain output policy accept END05:50
bluesnowBut the target, proc opt source, and destination are all empty05:51
bluesnowThey're empty for INPUT, FORWARD, and OUTPUT05:51
erncicbluesnow: accepts on all is ok, does not look like a problem there.05:51
bluesnowerncic: Yeah, but the target, proc opt source, and destination columns are all empty.05:52
bluesnowThat might be a problem?05:52
erncicbluesnow: the policy assigned on all is accept, meaning everything is accepted- an empty firewall that accepts all packets.05:53
bluesnowerncic: Ah, I see.05:53
erncicbluesnow: scratching my head .....05:53
bluesnowerncic: Yeah :(05:54
bluesnowerncic: I just heard that the VPN's security messes with routing tables.05:54
bluesnowBut we seem to have dealt with that05:54
erncicbluesnow: yeah we did. the table seems good, no firewall rule problems, pinging works, no dns, no web. dig still fails right?05:55
=== lance_ is now known as Guest88425
bluesnowerncic: dig still fails. I can ping DNS servers, like or
bluesnowerncic: well, I was able to ping DNS servers before we fixed the routing table.05:57
=== Guest88425 is now known as MrSalt
erncicbluesnow: cannot ping now?05:58
bluesnowerncic: I can still ping DNS servers.05:58
erncicbluesnow: ok, I thought we had moved backwards.05:59
bluesnowerncic: Thankfully not.05:59
erncicbluesnow: exactly.05:59
bluesnowerncic: Wait, my routing table now shows in the first column06:00
bluesnowDestination: default Gateway: my laptop name Genmask: Flags: UG ..06:00
bluesnowNot sure why it's showing 'my laptop name' under Gateway06:00
erncicbluesnow: your laptop name would be wrong…06:01
bluesnowerncic: Yeah, I think so.06:01
bluesnowerncic: sudo route add default via x.x.x.x returns Usage: ...06:02
bluesnowSo I guess that didn't work?06:02
bluesnowIt should return something else on success, right?06:02
erncicbluesnow: yes, we want route add default gw x.x.x.x06:04
bluesnowJust tried, 'sudo ip route add default via x.x.x.x', and that returned RTNETLINK answers: file exists06:04
bluesnowerncic: That command returns 'SIOCADDRT: File exists'06:04
erncicbluesnow: you have a default route. 'route del default' and then route add default gw x.x.x.x06:06
bluesnowerncic: Okay, be right back while I try the internet.06:06
stinktoadhello...i have a small question06:07
stinktoadmy wired connection does not read anything..it says device not managed06:08
stinktoadhow can I get it to show that I am connected06:08
stinktoador how can I get it to recognize my ethernet connection06:10
bluesnowerncic: Doing sudo route add default gw x.x.x.x is adding my computer's name under 'Gateway' in the 'default' row06:10
bluesnowI'm getting x.x.x.x from Edit connections -> wireless -> my connection -> IPv4 Settings -> Gateway06:11
bluesnowSo I'm not sure why it adds my computer's name under gateway..06:11
erncicbluesnow: it should not be your laptop name, it should be the gateway address or the gateway's name…06:12
bluesnowerncic: Yeah, but it keeps adding my laptop's name.06:13
bluesnowerncic: Maybe the VPN I connected to did that as a hack?06:13
erncicbluesnow: if it is your laptop name, all external requests should loop back to yourself and not go anywhere…. kind of like you are having, but your pings would die too, I would expect.06:13
bluesnowernic: Hmm, not sure. My pings are working..06:14
felipe_Brzi'm running 11.04 and I would like to stop the window switcher (alt+tab) from grouping similar windows (like many terminal instances) under one group... anyone know how to do that?06:15

erncicBluesnow: I am thinking the default gateway is wrong, but I don't have any idea what it should be.06:15
bluesnowerncic: It should be my router's IP address, right?06:19

stinktoadhow can I get it to recognize my ethernet connection06:22
erncicbluesnow: lets try and grab a new lease from dns and see if we can get a good gateway from dhcp… should have started here, but …. sudo dhclient -r06:23
stinktoaderncic, could you help me with this when you get a chance?06:24
bluesnowerncic: What do I do after sudo dhclient -r? The command doesn't return anything.06:24
erncicstinktoad: dynamic or static ip?06:24
stinktoadI would like to set it up as static06:24
erncicbluesnow: that should have released your current ip lease and grabbed a new one. check your routes06:24
bluesnowerncic: Okay, be right back.06:25
stinktoadi run ifcong in terminal06:25
stinktoadand get my eth006:25
erncicstinktoad: I do not think the interface will be "managed" if it is static.06:25

stinktoadso I shouldnt worry about it I take it06:27
stinktoadbut I am not runnin static right now06:27

stinktoadwell thanks erncic ..06:28
bluesnowThat's the only row in my routing table.06:28
erncicbluesnow: what works and what does not...06:29

ouyesIs it possible to disable the screen saver when you are playing a movie???06:36
erncicbluesnow: I would have thought so before tonight, but the pinging of tells us that somehow, those packets are being routed out of your network and are getting back in. how and via what route ??? does a 'traceroute' a) work and b) give up your gateway ip...06:36
bluesnowerncic: Let me try that.06:36

erncicbluesnow: was wondering what it was showing for the gateway.06:43

erncicbluesnow: post it to the forum….. that is your best bet.06:47
bluesnowerncic: Yeah. Any idea why adding as the default gw would result in my laptop's name?06:48
bluesnowThat doesn't seem to make any sense at all.06:48
erncicbluesnow: the only thing I can think of is a) a dns entry for with your laptop's name, b) an ip conflict with the default gateway (not likely) …06:49
erncicbluesnow: an /etc/hosts entry.06:50

Phabajim_,  chrome has a built in flash player i think06:52
jim_it's for an old neighbor who uses firefox, don't want to add chrome to the confusion06:53
Phabajim_, ithink you can download it through the software center06:53
OerHeksjim_, install ubuntu restricted extras for flash, openjdk and codecs06:54
erncicbluesnow: it usually has an entry for localhost and if static ip, a second line with the static ip to the hostname map, and then some ipv6 stuff below that. It can contain other stuff if needed, but usually the first two lines are what I was interested in.06:54
jim_are those restricted extras in a single package?06:54

OerHeksjim_, yes, one metapackage to get them all06:54
bluesnowerncic: Yeah it has localhost, and my_computer_name06:55
erncicbluesnow: those are expected and not a problem.06:55
jim_not great at ubuntu yet - how would I get that metapackage, please?06:55
bluesnowmy /etc/resolv.conf also has search turner.com and nameserver x.x.x.x and nameserver x.x.x.x06:55

OerHeksjim_, open softwarecentre, and typ " restricted "06:56
jim_ah, found it - tyty06:56
erncicbluesnow: that file is not your problem. the dig command we used 'dig @ google.com', the @ forced the nameserver, ignoring /etc/resolv.conf.06:57

bluesnowLet me try that.06:59
jim_was not prompted for a system restart after installing restricted extras, but still no youtube vids - could a restart help?07:01
bluesnowerncic: dig @ google.com does work07:01
OerHeksjim_, yes, restart could help, at least restart your browser07:01
bluesnowerncic: It returns (1 server found) and an Answer Section with google.com IN A x.x.x.x07:01
bluesnowSo dig is working.07:01
bluesnowI'm not sure what that means though.07:01
jim_had already restarted browser, so system next - let's hope I don't end up back here. thanks again07:02

erncicbluesnow: now, those /etc/resolv.conf entries become important… you got it.07:05
ikoniaxpistos: no07:05
bluesnowerncic: /etc/resolv.conf should be DNS server addresses, right?07:05
Phabawill changing /proc/sys/kernal/randomize_va_space from 1 to 0 make me more vulnerable to exploits?07:05
xpistosOk, I am lost then. My wife's computer is hard connected to the router the same as my home server but her computer goes through days where it will not connect07:06
Phabaxpistos, sounds more like a dns issue07:06
ikoniadoesn't sound like dns07:06
erncicbluesnow: technically for a dhcp assigned address that file should say "don't edit this file", but it has been edited.07:06
ikoniaas the same website can be pinged07:06
Phabaikonia, depends if he's pinging the ip of the website07:07
ikoniaare your browsers set wrongly to use a proxy07:07
ikoniaPhaba: he said website, he didn't say ip07:07
erncicbluesnow: so lets just fix the dns extras to something we know works …. etc07:07
xpistosuh I don't think so but I will check07:07
ikoniaI don't suggest randomly changing your dns servers07:07
erncicbluesnow: comment out the name servers added by the vpn first.07:08
ikoniaand /etc/resolv.conf is not where you need to set the dns servers, with the ubuntu dnsmasq setup07:08
xpistosokay. here box is dhcp07:08
xpistoswith an reserved address on the router07:08
ikoniaxpistos: dynampic/static ip doesn't matter07:08

fedorhi there, I am interested in knowing, why when i am copying files to my android-smartphone (via usb-cable) i am getting something that is corrupted, thus i am left without files needed, when I really need them.  Is it connected with the file system, or is it just that i am unlucky?08:05
xpistos1Unifx: LOL. Wierd. I killed the putty session08:06
xpistos1firefox does not work, but chrome is still working08:06
DavidSchererwhen I do `ssh user@host -p PORT` I keep getting the message "connection closed by IP". This is only happening on my Desktop (Ubuntu 12 LTS) but not on my Android phone, both using the same Internet connection. On the target VM, the connection is going through fine and there are no firewall issues, but it shows as though I am closing the connection.08:06
xpistos1I know chrome uses the network default08:06
DavidSchererAny ideas on how to fix this or what is even wrong?08:06
mal10canyone know how to change the default desktop to fluxbox in ubuntu 12.10 via terminal?08:06
xpistos1turn off the proxy in FF and now it is working without putty session up too???08:07
Unifxso putty is closed08:08
Unifxand all working08:08
xpistos1this is crazy08:08

sons_of_satan[Myrtti] thanks10:01
david_joey8: So no, different, remote server. Would a ssh -vvv help?10:01
cousteaufor what I could understand, the problem with sudo is that it doesn't change $HOME to /root, thus messing the user config files10:02
cousteauhowever `sudo -H` exports HOME=/root10:02
thermiongood to know...10:02
david_cousteau: What about just su to root until you're done? I mean, it's an extra step...but?10:02

Myrtticousteau, david_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo explains some good and bad options10:05
cousteaujoekoocc1_, not sure what you mean, but when you plug an FTDI USB device, a /dev/ttyUSB* or /dev/ttyACM* device will appear10:06
david_mobhero: I think you should ask tomcat people, or browse the tomcat docs, or maybe check to see if Apt or Yum or whatever your fav PKG manager has it.10:06
cousteaumy idea was to alias sudo to `sudo -H` by default.10:06
guestLinxwhich is he best tool for Linux to convert video file to  AVI DIVX ?10:07
david_cousteau: That may not be a good idea.10:07
cousteauI proposed that idea to brainstorm and it was blatantly rejected10:07
david_You usually only need sudo to do commands that require elevated permissions is certain areas.10:07
cousteauguestLinx, are you aware of the fuzziness of the word "best"?10:08
guestLinxcousteau: easiest and more efficient10:08
david_So if you're installing something as a User BOB, with sudo, instead of stuff going into BOB's home directory, it'll go to root.10:08
cousteauguestLinx,  some will suggest you ffmpeg, or winff, or mencoder, or avidemux, or another video editor10:09
cousteaudavid_, shouldn't it?10:09
david_guestLinx: Your best option is to Google search, a bunch of different blog entries and stuff will pop up arguing the features and benefits of several in each post.10:09
david_The "Best" is the one that has everything you need.10:09
cousteau"easiest" is also a fuzzy word10:09
david_cousteau: Shouldn't what?10:10
cousteauand it sometimes conflict with "most efficient"10:10
cousteaudavid_, put stuff on /root rather than ~user10:10
cousteaualso, if it puts stuff on ~user it will do so with root as owner10:11
cousteauI'm not sure, but I think everything on ~user should belong to user10:11
david_If I'm writing an install script, good practice is to have the app you're installing be ran as a non-system, non-root user. The files should also be owned by the same user.10:11
david_For the most part, I only want the install script ran with SUDO so I can add files to places I normally might not be able to or to change permissions for something I'm setting up.10:12
david_I'd be writing this install script assuming $home points to the user's home folder I'm installing the program to run as, rather than the Root/system user.10:13
cousteaunon-sudo for local install (e.g. ~/program/) and sudo for /usr/local/10:13
cousteauor /opt/10:13
cousteaudavid_, but if ran with sudo, the user that is doing the install is root10:13
cousteaucasted by the user10:13
david_I think sudo not changing the $home variable by default is wholly intentional and to good purpose.10:14
cousteauyou never see superman doing superman stuff dressed as clark kent10:14
david_cousteau: But the files are still OWNED by the user running the script.10:14
david_They're just doing it with superuser permissions.10:14
cousteaudavid_, if sudo writes something, its owner will be root10:14
david_And still relative to the user who's running the script's home directory.10:15
thermionhow uses realtive paths in an installer??10:15
cousteaudavid_, actually the INSTALL script should not touch the user CONFIGURATION10:16
david_cousteau: And that can be changed by the script, but if it's placed in the wrong folder, ie a sub-dirctory of  /home/root/something and it should be in /home/bob/something you have other problems.10:16
cousteauso it should either go to ./ or to an install path10:16
david_Suffice it to say I merely think aliasing sudo to sudo -h by default is not a great idea.10:16
cousteauso to $PWD and not to $HOME10:16
cousteau-H, not -h10:16
david_It might not be wrong, or bad, but it could cause some un-expected side-effects.10:17
cousteauI think it would avoid a bunch of sudo-related errors10:17
cousteauand all those "nooo! don't use sudo for graphical things, use gksudo!"10:18
david_Most of the "install" scripts I write are CLI php scripts used to take a fresh Clone from Git and move all the *.default files to their right places and all that and change directory permissions and stuff.10:18
cousteauseems that the only problem with sudo vs gksudo is the $HOME thing10:19
cousteaudavid_, sudo installations should be system-wide and thus not touch a specific user's configuration10:20
david_Right, anyway, I didn't really want to argue, I'm just saying I can think of instances where that alias may not be a great idea.10:20
david_cousteau: Are you talking about an install done by a sudo install.sh ?10:21
cousteauwe're not arguing! we're discussing.10:21
david_Just because something "should" be a certain way doesn't mean it always is.10:22
cousteaudavid_, I'm talking about whatever install script you were talking about10:22
david_Have you looked at browser compatibility lately? :P10:22
david_I apparently break that rule all the time with my "install" scripts.10:23
david_They're more like "get this setup like yesterday" scripts.10:23

david_You can configure a base proxy to route all your traffic through from your computer, if you want.10:54
david_No sure how though.10:54
david_Or maybe there's a way to pipe to or from the ssh for a proxied connection.10:54
lemonsparrowdavid_: I am trying $ ssh -v -p 22 user@host.com and i get the error ssh: connect to host host.com port 22: Connection timed out10:56
david_lemonsparrow: No idea what -v does. I use ssh user@host.com -p 123410:57
david_lemonsparrow: And since port 22 is the default, you don't need it.10:58
lemonsparrowdavid_: and where do you set the proxy ?10:58
david_Unless you're trying to SSH to a non-standard port.10:58
david_lemonsparrow: I don't think you can with ssh. You'd probably have to do it via the system or a pipe somehow or something. Or SSH into a VM then SSH from the VM to somewhere else.10:59
lemonsparrowdavid_: I still get port 22: Connection timed out10:59
david_Can you ping the IP you're trying to reach? Is it the right port?11:00
david_Is there really an SSHd server running on the target machine for you to connect to?11:01
lemonsparrowdavid_: I am trying to ssh into a public server11:01
david_Connecting from a proxy probably won't resolve you not being able to connect.11:01
david_But I don't know.11:01
david_Anyway, I need to go afk for a bit.11:02

cousteauAnn-Mariya, 201211:24
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, It's a firewall command to deny network access of gvfsd11:24
Ann-MariyaXATRIX:iptables v1.4.12: invalid port/service `PORT_THAT_USES_gvfsd_http' specified11:25
Ann-MariyaTry `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.11:25

Snurre86I installed det aditional beta driver from nvidia and the pc diden't boot so i typed "sudo apt-get --pure remove nvidia-*" but i want to install another beta driver i know works. But it don't looks as if it is completely uinstalled11:25
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, ofcource... PORT_THAT... is a thing you have to change on the real value11:26
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, are you really using network shares through the internet ?11:27
Ann-MariyaXATRIX: plz 4ward the actual command...u know ladies are not gud in computers11:28
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, I just use internet to browse and chat !!!11:29
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, ok, let's do it from the start. Why do you want to block it ? :)11:30
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, It slows down my internet11:30
XATRIXCan you give me the output of: sudo netstat -tup | grep gvfsd11:31
xatr0zXATRIX: i dont like your nick, my hilight goes nuts :P:P11:31
MonkeyDustAnn-Mariya  please don't say 4ward and gud, better use the actual words11:31
XATRIXMonkeyDust, don't buy computers for the ladies next time ;)11:32
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, terminal doesn't gave any o/p11:33
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, you have to do it from root account !11:33
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, the same11:34
XATRIXCan you give me the output of: sudo netstat -tup11:34
XATRIXAny ESTABLISHED connections from gvfsd ?11:35
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, let me notify that this time my firewall shows that, gvfsd-http is not connected11:35
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, block it with your firewall - the simpliest way11:35
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, I am using firestarter11:35
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, no idea what is it :)11:36
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, well how can I block it ?11:36
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, Can you do it with your firewall ?11:38
XATRIXBy the way , are you from India ?11:38
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, no option for that11:38
XATRIXShould be , any firewall must have this option to11:38
ironhalikWhen hibernating, swap partition has to be equal or larger then my RAM size?11:39
Ann-MariyaXATRIX,k . u have been most helpful11:39
MonkeyDustironhalik  better larger11:39
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, you can also try to find the executable with : locate gvfsd-http and remove it , if you don't use the network shares11:40
ironhalikMonkeyDust: can I hibernate with a swap file? I would need to repartition my ssd after latest upgrade11:40
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, what is this n/w share, i don't understand11:40
SkyRocknRollThere is a hot debate going on in my office now regarding which os ( ubuntu or debian ) should be used in our new server ?11:41
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, Ubuntu has some functionality to share files, or whatever media between people over internet... If you don't use it, you don't need gvfs11:41
ironhalikWikimedia runs on ubuntu :)11:41
SkyRocknRollany point to support for ubuntu  i will appreciate :)11:41
MonkeyDustironhalik  i have not enough ewperience with hibernation, to know such things11:41
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, well i don't need it11:42
fidel_SkyRocknRoll: this channel is offering technical support - not propaganda11:42
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, remove it ;)11:42
ironhalikMonkeyDust: Nevermind. I'll check the docs, I think there was something there about it.11:42
swSkyRocknRoll It doesn't work like that, you use whatever is best for the organisation, depending on your requirements. This isn't a debate room, people here will tend to use Ubuntu, for obvious reasons.11:42
Ann-MariyaXATRIX, let me show the command11:42
SkyRocknRollmy opponent who is recommending debian says only this point " Debian is used by lot of guys"11:43
ss_hello! I've done terrible things :). I've been trying to the nvidia drivers working on ubuntu (I was trying to run a game and it was running very slowly and i assumed this was due to incorrect graphics drivers). I went to the update centre and went to software sources, additional drivers and chose an nvidia driver11:43

ss_i restarted X (logged out)... nothing seemed to change visually but now the game segfaulted! ok. So I tried playing around with the nvidia-settings commands, specifically i ran nvidia-settings which started with a dialogue box suggesting i run nvidia-xconfig11:44
ss_i proceeded to run nvidia-xconfig, on an initial x restart, black screen, no output whatsoever, after that i restarted the machine and now im stuck in 640x480 :D11:45
XATRIXAnn-Mariya, dpkg -S gvfsd-http - show me the output11:45

tomreyncasualX: "it failed cause my service script could create any file" doesn't make much sense to me. why does the initskript fail due to being able to create files?12:17
XATRIXAny grub configurator for ubuntu ?12:18

Nick-Black-92829 /who *cadena*12:18
XATRIXtomreyn, update-grub or update-grub2 ?12:19
Touhou11grub2 is fairly simple to understand, just read the manual: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html12:19

XATRIXtomreyn, i mean, i installed kernel binary12:20
XATRIXHow can i configure grub menu12:20
XATRIXTo manually setup the order of entries12:21
tomreynXATRIX: you optionally edit /etc/default/grub and run update-grub12:21
casualXtomreyn I thought maybee its not possible but I think its just my mistake. here is my scrip which runs well when I do it /etc/init.d/ after login from console but not from startup...youre my great saver today if you can help me fix it http://pastebin.com/FvGLBkj012:22
tomreynXATRIX: to manually change the order of entries and not have them overwritten automatically on next kernel update / removal you will need to adjust the names of files in /etc/grub.d/12:24
tomreynXATRIX: it may be better to just set the # of the default entry in /etc/default/grub though12:24

heideggermartinI am trying to get a server running on https:// and if I generate .ssh files for it then my client complains because the ssh key for that domain is different on ssh and https12:29

wilfredortomreyn: I forget, ubuntu is not gnu/linux12:29
muelliheideggermartin: can you provide a screeshot or an error message?12:30
heideggermartinuhm ... Error: SSL Error: DEPTH_ZERO_SELF_SIGNED_CERT12:30
elferi have questions, but i wont ask until later...12:30
casualXtomreyin yes i did this by a general template...the script is stored in /etc/init.d/ by the way i dont use upstart I use openrc...after creation i runned rc-update add <script> name...I can see the output on the monitor but It not create the file /root/xorg.conf.new...after when I logged in I can successfully start it with /etc/init,d/<scriptname> start and then it does his job :)12:31
elferneed a cat nap soon12:31
heideggermartinwell: I want to make sure that the https uses the same key as the ssh shell to avoid running into other errors so I wondered where the cert and key files for ssh are hosted by default on ubuntu12:31
heideggermartin(as you can see above its a rather non-saying error of my command line tool in running in node)12:32
muelliheideggermartin: what client are you using?12:33
muelliheideggermartin: the sshd keys are somewhere in /etc/ssh/12:33
tomreynXATRIX: as per /etc/grub.d/41_custom you can create a file /etc/boot/grub/custom.cfg which will have just the kernel stanza you wish to show up in grub menu in it.12:33
tomreynXATRIX: alternatively you can place it in /etc/grub.d/40_custom12:34
heideggermartinmuelli: I have found tons of ssh keys in /etc/ssh/certs but I don't know which are used for the ssh command (I use mac/node/browser)12:34
tomreynXATRIX: then run update-grub again and set default to the # of the kernel stanza in grub.cfg12:35
XATRIXtomreyn, Sure but where should i edit paths to the kernel ? I wouldn't like to parse ton of a code :)12:35
XATRIXAlso, i have no grub menu during startup...12:35
muelliheideggermartin: I have a weird feeling about your problem so I ask stupid questions. So you are using the OpenSSH ssh client? On the command line?12:35
tomreynXATRIX: hold down shift at boot to make grub menu load12:35
=== ben1u is now known as benlu
XATRIXDidn't know about this12:36
heideggermartinmuelli: yes i used the standard command line client.12:36
tomreynXATRIX: you don't need to parse any code, you can put the plain kernel stanzs into one of the files12:36
muelliheideggermartin: and can you pastebin your terminal session, including the program you call and how it returns?12:36
XATRIXkernel stanzs = kernel images paths ?12:37
heideggermartinmuelli: the client is part of the problem, but not one I can change ;)12:37
heideggermartinmuelli: As far as I can tell its possible to register different known_host ssh certificates for different ports12:38
tomreynXATRIX: kernel stanza =  a "menuentry" section, as found in your existing /boot/grub/grub.cfg12:38
muelliso, are you going to post a full transcript of you calling ssh?12:38
heideggermartinmuelli: ssh <user>@<myserver>12:39
=== RedWar is now known as thegreatspace
muellipastebin the contents of your terminal. Or use "script" and upload the file.12:39
XATRIXtomreyn, wait. If i reboot my box and hold down shift during startup, will it automatically add my new kernel to the list of kernels available to boot to ?12:40
XATRIXOr i have to manually write something into the config file12:40
=== lewq_ is now known as lewq
=== marc is now known as Guest90391
tomreynXATRIX: since the kernel image you want to try to boot is not a standard ubuntu image, you need to manually add a menuentry { } section referencing the kernel image and initrd to /etc/boot/grub/custom.cfg or /etc/grub.d/40_custom12:42
tomreynXATRIX: did you build this kernel image yourself, or did you find it somewhere? it's a bit of a dangerous situation that you would want to setup a custom kernel but know little about how grub works on ubuntu.12:46
XATRIXtomreyn, I'm quite experienced in building custom kernels, i did gentoo for about 7 years :) The trouble is that grub2 is quite a bit complicated than grub, and i would not like to dig into the script-code :)12:47
XATRIXI know how bootloader works, i also used lilo bootloaders, but grub2 confuses me as hell :)12:48
tomreynheinrich5991: /etc/ssh/certs is not a standard location on ubuntu, as far as i know. what is stored in there, what placed it there (if you know), and what is its purpose (if you know)12:48
XATRIXAlso it's not a hand-made kernel, i downloaded it from the http://pf.natalenko.name/binaries/ubuntu/12:48
tomreynsorry heinrich5991, this was supposed to go to heideggermartin12:48
heideggermartinmuelli: https://gist.github.com/70fd2abf55e78724285d12:49
heideggermartinmuelli: I am not sure this tells you anything.12:49
muelliheideggermartin: well. So why do you see SSH being a problem? it's "npm" that fails, right?12:49
heideggermartinmuelli: This is my custom npm server ... running on ubuntu12:50
heideggermartinmuelli: that has a different ssh key than the ssh service on the server12:50
muelliheideggermartin: I don't see SSH in the problem space at all.12:50
muelliheideggermartin: the problem I see is that "GET" fails due to SSL things.12:50
heideggermartinmuelli: it fails imho because the server is not part of the known_hosts12:51

casualXhave a nice day folks12:51
Guest84894Comment ça va12:51
muelliheideggermartin: how do you know that?12:51
muelliheideggermartin: I see the problem is clearly mentioned: zero depth certificate. That's obviously the SSL certificate12:51
muellifrom the HTTPd that is12:51
heideggermartinmuelli: its a common failure if you have try to access a uncertified secure domain12:52
heideggermartinmuelli: it also says in the error SELF_SIGNED_CERT which you usually have to certify with a [YES/no] question12:53
heideggermartinmuelli: that is not available in npm12:53
YokoBRguys, plz, i can't understand what's happening. I had Ubuntu Server 10.04, but then i switched to 12.04. Now i've installed postfix, but i can only send some kind of mail with php. I mean, when an unser registers, it doesn't send him a mail. But when he do the first login, it does.12:54
heideggermartinmuelli: to make sure I made no other mistake I want to try to take the same ssh key in my npm server as I have in the ssh service(server)12:54
muelliheideggermartin: *shrug* anyway, so far, that doesn't look like anything SSH related at all to me.12:54
muelliheideggermartin: it looks like you only need to convince npm to trust the certificate that your httpd sends out. No idea how to do that though. But that's a npm specific problem.12:55
=== JoFo__ is now known as JoFo
heideggermartinmuelli: I am right now wondering if I write proper english (its not my mother tongue)12:56
heideggermartinmuelli: To be as clear as I can: I have the feeling that I can solve this problem if I have the same .ssh key for both services (SSH and HTTPS). The https service is installed by me and the ssh service is out-of-the-box.12:57
muelliheideggermartin: no12:57
heideggermartinmuelli: So I am asking if someone knows which .ssh key and cert file is used in the default ssh service of ubuntu.12:58
muelliheideggermartin: again, I am very surprised to see you seeing anything SSH related in there. The output you provided has no indication whatsoever for anything related to SSH. Not a single hint. It's all HTTPS.12:58
heideggermartinmuelli: You are not answering my question.12:58
muelliheideggermartin: look in /etc/ssh/. But you won't find anything to solve your problem there. SSH is *not related* to your problem. *Why* would it be? There is not a single technical reason.12:59
muelliheideggermartin: I am. And I am doing that although I believe your questions are bad.12:59
muelliheideggermartin: The SSHd key is in /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key. But that doesn't buy you anything.13:00
heideggermartinmuelli: Thank you, do you know which the cert key is?13:00
heideggermartinmuelli: sorry, cert pem file13:00
muelliheideggermartin: the problem is, your question don't make much sense. And that is, I believe, because you don't understand enough of the technical side of things.13:01
muellii.e. SSHd doesn't work with PEM encoded files.13:01
joey8!patience > heideggermartin13:01
ubottuheideggermartin, please see my private message13:01
tomreynheideggermartin: are you mixing up SSL and SSH by chance? "certificate" often refers to X.509. SSH doesn't use "certificates". sure, both openssl and openssh work with key pairs, often RSA key pairs, but they store and use them very differently.13:02
muelliheideggermartin: so if you want your problem to be solved, don't focus on ssh. Focus on npm and how to make it accept a certificate of your liking.13:02
heideggermartintomreyn: That they store those files differently is unfortunate.13:04
tomreynheideggermartin: why so?13:04
mimiNo problem as such, but would like to ask for some advice please? ..Can Win8 be run successfully in Virtual Box from within Ubuntu? All I need windows for is itunes13:04
heideggermartinIn the couchdb that runs on the server I have the possiblity to define the key/cert pem file for the https communication.13:04
muelliSure it is. But it's only 2012. We have yet to reach a state in which we can do PKI properly.13:04
muellimimi: guess so.13:05
mimimuelli: doesn't sound like you've tried it? :)13:05
muellimuelli: correct. But I don't see a reason why it would not work. Plus: it's easy to test, no?13:06
mimiI would normally run a dual boot system, but don't know if I can be bothered to go through the hassle (yet again)13:06
tomreynmimi: it does provide a windows 8 profile. and windows 8 boots up fine in a virtualbox VM on a ubuntu 12.10 host. video acceleration doesn't work for me, but that's porobably not a concern for you.13:06

heideggermartinAs far as I can tell: npm (like git) uses the known_hosts file on mac to accept uncertified urls13:06
muelliheideggermartin: how do you know?13:06
mimitomreyn,  ...thanks. No, I don't think it would be a concern. I use linux most of the time, and only windows for itunes.13:07
muelliheideggermartin: that is very very likely to only apply for SSH. But you *don't* try to make a connection via SSH. But rather HTTPS.13:07
mimiI've never tried virtual box ...am running linux at the moment from live usb13:07

tomreynLTF: can you post the output you get after logging in (including the login/password prompt) to paste.ubuntu.com?13:16

MarcNI'm running Ubuntu Desktop 12.10 but want to upgrade to x86_64 in order for KVM to support x86_64 VMs. Is that simply a matter of installing a different kernel package?13:18
tomreynMarcN: if you installed a 32 bit ubuntu so far, then you should reinstall to switch to the 64 bit architecture.13:21
DJonesMarcN: Have you installed 32 bit originally? If so, you can't upgrade to 64 bit, you have to do a fresh install13:21

MarcNDJones, tomreyn - If I wipe and install Ubuntu Server, surely I can install ubuntu-desktop (or whatever) to get all the GUI goodness, right?  My goal is to run KVM + OpenStack and be able to host x86_64 VMs  (like Ubuntu Server which is x86_64 only).  Just to kick the tires.13:24
tomreynthe_dark_knight: you want to look into httpd bench marking.13:24
muelliheideggermartin: bonus points if you mention briefly how to solve it so that people in the future can read these archived IRC logs.13:24
alexxxxxaCan somebody help me to set correctly  /etc/network/interfaces ?13:24
Lorrathe_dark_knight, you can repeat that command in a loop, when you invoke curl it gives also some statistics before outputting the result, you may extract them from the output of the command and then use them to do whatever you want13:24

tomreynLTF: please sum up again what you are trying to accomplish, how you have tried to do it so far and how it is not working out. so far you were talking about searching all files for some text to find some script, mentioned that something outputs something undesirable when you login, and about images which are retored. i do not understand how to this goes together.13:31

Lorrasmartracer, you can use the cd/dvd/usb key you installed ubuntu from in "livecd" mode, copy the files you care about (tipically the contents of the /home directory) somewhere safe and perform a clean install, it doesn't take much13:33

witnitcfhowlett: I would if the PC I'm trying to install to had a USB port.  It's a n OLD PC.13:36
LTFtomreyn: no,is a script made by an user13:36
witnittouhoull: thanks.  I'll look it up for differences.13:36
LTFtomreyn: i just wanna learn how to search it by content13:37
cfhowlettwitnit: ah.  ok.  then the suggestion to try xubunut/lubuntu would seem valid.  both are optimized for older/lower spec machines13:37
tomreynLTF: check what the users' shell is: getent passwd | grep <name_of_the_user>13:37
witnitThanks folks!!!13:37
tomreynLTF: aslso check what the users' home directory is. then inspect the dot file in the users' home directory13:37
chipdalfhave a nice day... bye...13:38
Mukhtharwitnit : u can use plop boot manage to boot from usb if the bios does not support or by adding usb card13:38
LTFtomreyn: no, i mean, the script is executed by "restaura" user, i know its owner, i have access, this system just has not .xinitrc or x system, and dont know where to looki in,in rc.d i did not find it13:38
tomreynLTF: for example, if the users' shell is bash, then the scripts which get executed on login are, in his home directory, .bash_profile and .bashrc13:39
LTFtomreyn: no,i already checkd there13:39
witnitmukhthar: Thanks, but I'm just trying to revive an unused PC without investing more money into it.13:39
tomreynLTF: maybe the script which is called is invoked / referenced by the login scripts.13:40
LTFtomreyn:  so how i locate it13:41
tomreynLTF: well, read the users' login scripts since no other scripts the user can modify are executed on the users' login.13:42
tomreynLTF: either what you are looking for is in there or it is referenced yb them13:42
tomreynLTF: you can diff the users' login scripts against those in /etc/skel/ to detect changes13:43

craigbass1976angy, I musty have misunderstood.  I thought you actually changed the filesystem type of the thumb drive.  What you did was actually changed what grub thought it was?13:58

ss_tomreyn, ok so I found this discussion on the forum: http://askubuntu.com/questions/202677/nvidia-driver-doesnt-work-in-12-10 which suggests that I should have linux-source installed before I install the nvidia-current-updates driver14:38
lovWhenever I press the "alt" button, the "Dash Home" menu opens. Is there any way to disable it opening for default? This gets really confusing and obnoxious when using synergy./14:40
ss_however, when I try to install the current-updates driver I noticed there was an error at the end regarding a problem with dkms and the unsupported version of my kernel. I then tried nvidia-current instead and it seemed to work! in that it got to the end of the aptitude install without an error.14:41
lovNevermind, found it. Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts.14:41

craigbass1976SolarisBoy, I only see a choice for "Previous Linux versions".  I've been running 12.04 on that box since not long after it came out, so if grub saves the kernel entries by default, then they're there somewhere.  I'm downloading an iso now to boot to14:59

SolarisBoycraigbass1976: if your using a very special keybooard (in some cases) i've seen it not be fully functional or not functional at all at grub screens during bootup (and earlier in bios)15:08

SolarisBoyTony_Stark: sure15:16

fellipehi. I am running 12.04 server and I have two interfaces with two internet links, and I have multipath rules. So I can switch between the links at anytime. But, I set dns-nameservers in each of interface configuration block, and the dns resolution is toooooo slow. I thought the kernel would query the proper dns wich belongs to that link of that specific interface. So how to solve it?16:10

tomreynfellipe: it's not the kernel querying the nameservers, it's applications / user space most of the time. and they will use either the glibc resolver or whatever is set in /etc/resolv.conf. if you have the resolvconf package installed this should allow for the dns-nameservers option in your interface configuration to be applied to /etc/resolv.conf (which is then a symbolic link)16:15

tomreynfellipe: i wouldn't know. i think it should work with different dns-nameservers in each block, as long as you can connect to those from both paths16:18
tomreynfellipe: chances are you just had one nameserver in there which you can't actually query.16:19
stobixmooo: but skip the <ESC> part, it didn't work. :)16:19
stobixmooo: hm, I don't know if you can get around it only matching lines, not characters, though. Right now you get one match for each line with a matching character...16:20
tomreynfellipe: you can use the dig or host commands to directly query these nameservers while switched the the very  route you have configured them for, and see whether they respond (and how).16:21

Sazpaimonhow can I make logrotate only compress files that are x days old16:29
stobixI don't get what's wrong with wine... If there is a wine-amd64 package, why would I need to install a 32-bit chroot to install wine? What gives?16:29
Sazpaimonstobix, wine has a 64 bit version, but I don't think it's packaged16:31
Sazpaimonthe wine package installs the 32 bit version of wine, because the majority of windows applications are 32 bit16:31
Sazpaimonlike I said, though, there does exist a native 64 bit version of wine, but that will only allow you to run 64 bit windows applications, unless you set up a wow64 environment, in which case you would still need the 32 bit compatability support packages16:32

Guest59641hi steve, its larry16:33
stobixSazpaimon: Hm. Maybe the wine package on a 64-bit machine should try to do something else than trying to install a package that doesn't exist (wine-i386), and install a chroot first/instead?16:33

fellipetomreyn, hi. I ran ip route get <dns server ip> and the kernel is using the same route to all the dns-servers ip ....  so how can I switch between dns-servers since it's no longer possible to use /etc/resolv.conf?16:35
larry__I know wine is meant to RUN a windows application, but how do you INSTALL a windows application, I would like to install my windows printer drive16:36
fellipetomreyn, or I can set static route to each dns server ip...16:36
Sazpaimonlarry__, a driver != an application16:36
Sazpaimonas for installing applications in wine, running the setup program should be sufficient16:37
TheLordOfTimelarry__, a windows driver won't install on linux, even if you use Wine.16:37
larry__Sazpaimon,  atm i run a windows partition with the  printer software on it so boot between the two16:37
Sazpaimonif you want your printer to work in ubuntu, you'll need to install native linux drivers/modules for it16:37
larry__there isn't one, leastwise not one  that is usable16:38
Sazpaimonusually CUPS is sufficient for most printers16:38
tomreynfellipe: sounds like your route switching doesn't work so well then.16:38
fellipetomreyn, it is because I did not set static routes to dns servers16:39
tomreynfellipe: okay, good to know it works then16:39
Sazpaimonanyway back to my question. How can I make logrotate only compress files that are  older than a certain time?16:40
tomreynfellipe: i have little practical experience with multi path setups mysqlf, probably less than you.16:40
larry__nope, my epson has four ink cartridges and the cups manager does not know which cartridge has run out. all i know is it has stopped printing because one  cartridge has run out. guess which one is unsatisfactory as the wrongguess leaves you with open but unused cartridges16:40
DatzDoes anyone know if gnome-session-fallback has the ability to use widgets in the task/tool bars?16:40
theadminDatz: Sure. Right-clicking the panel no longer words, some weirdo thought it was a good idea to map the context menu to Ctrl+WinKey+RightClick16:41
theadminDatz: But other than that, yeah16:41
Datztheadmin: sweetness. thanks16:41
tomreynSazpaimon: that's not really uspported by logrotate, i think. you could write a wrapper script for the compression command or do the compression yourself using the postrotate hook, though16:41

gmachine_24Detox_at_Work, if your home folder is just a folder you can't shrink the size... unless it's on a separate partition...... I think18:26

smkatzcan I list the databases on the system?18:26
Terriblistdcherniv: he cant lol18:26
smkatzusing mysql?18:26
dchernivsmkatz, drop user DRUPALUSER18:26

Terriblistsmkatz: are you in mysql now?18:26

Aluminbut yeah, as dr_willis said you'll need a crossover cable to connect them if you don't have a hub/switch19:33
bluwhaledr_willis, Well, I have ethernet ports on both. So can I link them through those?19:33
bluwhaleAlumin, ^^19:33
Aluminand you'll have to manually configure the networking (i.e. without DHCP) on whichever machine is "behind" the other one19:33
dr_willisactually  ive seen some Normal 100speed Nic ports that can auto switch. :) but nmot sure how common they are19:33
kevinchbluewhale you may not need crossover if one of the NIC's auto configures and knows its a crossover19:33
kevinch*not a crossover19:34
dr_willisI thinl all the 1000 speed Gigibit ports can do it.19:34
Aluminbluwhale: sure, but you may need a cxrossover cable depending on your NIC hardware19:34
=== RedWar is now known as thegreatspace
JoshDreamlandSeems Ubuntu has decided to call immediate system reboot without prompt as soon as updates finish. How do I make it not do that?19:34
dr_willisI guess that Raspberry Pi has one of these smart NIC ports. ;) from what ive read of its specs.. not seen it on any other desktop/laptops. but most new ones have Gigibit.19:35
bluwhaleOk, thanks for the tips guys. I think I'll do more research.19:35
bluwhaleBased on your suggestions.19:35
Aluminnamidark: can you ping the nameservers themselves?19:35
Aluminbluwhale: if you want the MSW box to be the "master", look up Internet Connection Sharing19:35
Aluminif you want the Ubuntu box to handle it, look up IP masquerade19:35
Aluminyou might want to look up the pinout for a crossover cable as well, in case you need to make one19:37
dr_willisalways handy to have a crossover cable, or a little converter/dongle in the pc toolbox19:37
AluminI can't remember the orange/white, orange, brown/white, brown, blue, fuchsia, teal, silver...whatever19:37
bluwhaleThanks guys.19:39

dr_willisthat might run an instance of vlc for each file.. may not be what you want. ;)19:43

new-to-thisit doesnt return anything19:43
AluminI don't second-guess the question.  :)  But yes, you're right, he probably wants xargs19:43

WhitePelicanI need some help with virtual box, can anyone help?21:23
ntzrmtthihu777not technically ubuntu support, but what is the irc command to authenticate your nick? I already regged it with nickserv21:23
ntzrmtthihu777what's the problem | WhitePelican21:24
guntbert_WhitePelican: possibly better support for virtulabox in #vbox21:24
erncicntzrmtthihu777, /NickServ identify password21:24
ntzrmtthihu777I actually just set up a new vbox, so its fresh in my head21:24
ntzrmtthihu777thank you erncic21:25
Nik05what about "/msg NickServ help" ?21:25
WhitePelicanntzrmtthihu777, the manual is a tad cumbersome. What I'm trying to do is increase the size of my virtual machine21:25
Nik05ntzrmtthihu777 it will tell you everything21:25
ntzrmtthihu777ah, thank you.21:25
guntbert_WhitePelican: that is definitely beyound the scope of *this* channel21:26
ntzrmtthihu777well, If I am not mistaken, you cannot increase the size of the virtual disc image if you set it as fixed size, and it will automatically grow if you set it as dynamically allocated21:26
nfl32guntbert_, is it possible to make sudo changes under another partiton instead so i have a gui. i am not friendly with bash plus no printer so rather do this way if possible21:26
ntzrmtthihu777and those are the only options, I think.21:27
ntzrmtthihu777bash is easy, lol. what exactly are you trying to achieve, nf123?21:27
nfl32lol ntzrmtthihu777 i really havent ever used it though. always went around it somehow this is what i need to do ntzrmtthihu777  http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo21:28
guntbert_nfl32: you could do it from a live usb/CD - but you need  to handle command line in any case21:28
erncicWhitePelican, you can expand it, but you need to treat it as if you had added a new hd and use something like clonezilla to move the data over.  It is exactly like a physical move.21:28
ntzrmtthihu777lol, yeah you could do that, erncic.21:28
nfl32guntbert_, ok. so live usb only cant do it from partition on same drive for sure?21:28
WhitePelicanerncic, understood21:29
guntbert_nfl32: that has nothing to do with "partition"21:29
WhitePelicanerncic, thanks21:29
ntzrmtthihu777yeah, you would have to do a live session. I accidentaly broke sudoers before, was a bit of a pain. not even recovery mod was working, so a live session is a must21:30
nfl32guntbert_, the screwed sudo system is on sda my 1 hard drive and it has 3 partitions the other 2 systems work fine. so can i make these http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo changes that way or i really gotta burn off a iso live usb. that is all i am askin21:30
Guest12334hi, does anyone know if there's a way under xorg.conf to set the screen to only use 1080i and ever 1080p21:30
nfl32ok ntzrmtthihu777 appreciate it. i may be back to ask for some help lol21:30
ntzrmtthihu777ah, then just boot one of your other systems and fix it.21:31
nfl32ok thats cool ntzrmtthihu77721:31
nfl32i will do that21:31
guntbert_nfl32: ahh, you are multibooting - sure, as long as the borked system is not the actiive one it should work (although I never tried that approach myself)21:31

Jordan_Uemx: There are no guarantees.21:56
jribemx: not necessarily.  But if you are not doing strange things with your packages (badly behaved PPAs, repositories not meant for your version, .debs not meant for your version), then the install should go smooth.  In any case, you're advised to have backups (which you should have even if you aren't upgrading of course)21:56

doug1how can I get mkfs NOT to mount a volume when it's already in fstab?22:00
nfl32hi. i am editing the etc/sudoers and i have it back to normal however still a problem. i followed a good tutorial website also22:00
mrhydewow ubuntu is amazing -words coming from a Mac user :)22:00
tim-cthi all Please could someone look at http://paste.ubuntu.com/1455744/. I still cant see thru the firewall22:00
Jordan_Udoug1: mkfs doesn't mount volumes, so you'll have to rephrase your question.22:00
erncicemx: how remote and what is your "Are you kidding me?" strategy?22:00
doug1Jordan_U: Yes it does. If I run mkfs on a volume, and that volume is already in fstab, it automatically mounts it22:01
emxerncic, what on earth is a "Are you kidding me?" strategy? :P remote means around 3'000 km away.22:01
doug1Jordan_U: I can reproduce this.22:02
ntzrmtthihu777how can I list channels?22:02
metap0dHi everyone, I just installed Ubuntu and then Chromium but I don't seem to have a flash plugin installed. I tried googling how to add it but can't find a relevant article :/22:03
erncicemx: that is my way of waying if the sshd doesn't come back up, what is your plan. I have done it myself, but I was aware of the possible outcomes.22:03
ntzrmtthihu777sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer22:03
nbdu1nderboa noite22:03
phibxrmetap0d, either install it as ntzrmtthihu777 said, or just install Chrome from http://www.google.com/chrome.22:04
emxerncic, i see. i got one strategy: not upgrading and change to a local hoster so i can kick butts when something goes wrong.22:04
ntzrmtthihu777or just wise up and use the excellent browser that comes with buntu22:04
guntbertntzrmtthihu777: you better don't list them - send a /msg alis help22:04
Jordan_Udoug1: Something may be automatically mounting the volume, but it's not mkfs. Let's assume for now that there is something that is mounting the volume whenever a filesystem appears on it. How is the device specified in the fstab? (specifically, is it specified by UUID, by label, or by static device name?)22:05

phibxrsiver, haven't been running gnome classic for years, but I guess that they would most likely be saved somewhere under ~/.config in your home-directory.22:11
ntzrmtthihu777it should allow you to login with command line22:11

ntzrmtthihu777then type startx22:11
siverphibxr: yeah, I actually just deleted my .gconf folder ... but for some reason that didn't fix it22:11

siverphibxr: well, it's a fresh ubuntu install, just installed gnome on top ... but my keybindings that I already set in unity were still working in gnome classic, maybe that gives you a better idea of where I should be looking?22:13
doug1this makes no sense. I am running '/sbin/mkfs -t ext4 /dev/bcvg/log' and something is mounting the volume afterwards. I thought it was because there was already an entry in /etc/fstab, but that's not it cuz I just ran "/sbin/mkfs -t ext4 /dev/bcvg/log" again with it commented out22:13
phibxrsiver, okay, you may want to check this one out then: http://askubuntu.com/questions/17626/how-can-i-restore-default-keyboard-shortcuts22:14
phibxrsiver, I sadly haven't been able to mess my keybindings up -- yet. :)22:14

Jordan_Udoug1: And when odd things that don't seem to make much sense happen, it's often good to try to understand everything that's happening. Do you understand why the logical volume is showing up in /dev/bcvg/ ? What is the device name of the physical volume associated with it, or is the actual LVM portion of this part of the Amazon foo rather than being handled by the guest?22:25

walterwojJust in case anyone needs to know in the future my issue ( seen here: http://static.inky.ws/image/3544/2012-12-21_16-35-25_55.jpg) was caused by a cheap USB hub causing some type of IRQ related issue.  I unplugged the Hub and rebooted and It booted fine.  I know It was the hub because I reconnected it and it caused same hang.  So a blinking cursor can be caused by USB issues.22:38

smkatzthanks so much for your help23:51
gmachine_24n00bzz, when you say "systemwide", are you talking about a network or one computer23:51
smkatzalso dcherniv23:51

smkatzI also dpkg -r phpmyadmin23:51
gmachine_24n00bzz, click on the clock on your taskbar23:52
gmachine_24then click 'edit'23:52
