Bilge-How do I get a package out of stuck state?01:40
Bilge-apt-get always shows "1 not fully installed or removed."01:40
Bilge-I don't want to remove it but the post-install script always fails01:40
Bilge-It always throws "FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/3.2.13-grsec-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64/modules.dep: No such file or directory"01:41
sarnoldBilge-: iirc, something like "sudo depmod -a 3.2.13-grsec-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64"01:42
sarnold(whatever uname -r will report for the kernel version for that kernel, once it boots)01:43
Bilge-It just gives the same errors01:45
Bilge-WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/3.2.13-grsec-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64: No such file or directory01:45
Bilge-Am I supposed to create this directory by hand?01:45
sarnoldwhatever package contains that kernel is supposed to create the directory01:45
Bilge-No package, it was installed by the provider01:47
Bilge-It's still erroring, just with a different error now :/01:48
Bilge-dpkg: error processing iptables-persistent (--configure):01:48
Bilge-This is a really buggy package01:48
sarnoldit probably assumes a functioning kernel install.01:49
Bilge-No other package on the system has had any issues01:49
Bilge-And I've installed half of apt01:49
sarnoldBilge-: you may wish to install the kernel-package package and use the make-kpkg utility to build kernel packages if you're going to run your own kernels -- it helps smooth over a lot of the mistakes people may make when installing their own kernels01:50
Bilge-I'd rather just install a fixed version of iptables-persistent01:53
uvirtbotLaunchpad bug 1002078 in iptables-persistent "iptables-persistent fails to install if module iptable_filter is not available" [Undecided,Fix released]01:53
Bilge-According to this it was fixed in 0.5.6ubuntu101:54
Bilge-But I have 0.5.3ubuntu201:54
Bilge-How do I get the fixed one?01:54
sarnold0.5.6ubuntu1 is in 12.10; 0.5.3ubuntu2 is in 12.04 LTS. If you want to remain on 12.04 LTS and still have that fix, it might be worth asking in the bug report if an SRU is appropriate https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates01:56
Bilge-I will do that01:58
Bilge-How can you see which version of Ubuntu has which package version?01:58
sarnoldBilge-: perhaps the easiest is e.g. http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=iptables-persistent02:00
sarnoldbleck. that's not the URL I typed.02:00
sarnoldBilge-: http://packages.ubuntu.com/package-name02:01
Bilge-Thanks ;)02:01
kimsiai am having some problems running pecl install perl. the details of my attempts are documented at http://askubuntu.com/q/245996/1059102:10
Bilge-What I really can't understand is that I have this exact same installation on another box but it didn't have these problems or errors02:13
Bilge-Same hardware, same distro, same packages02:13
Bilge-Same kernel too02:14

cfhowlettadamlis, ask in ##windows or #windows09:33
cfhowlettadamlis, it really is not an ubuntu issue, is it?09:33

AkendoHello, just some simple question. Will be there a  release for 2012.2.1? Current Version is 2012.2. (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/CloudArchive)12:52
jamespageAkendo, yes there will be - its stuck in -proposed for both the CA and for quantal at the moment12:55
jamespageAkendo, trying to get it nudged along this week12:55
jamespageAkendo, you might find this report useful - http://reqorts.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/ubuntu-server/cloud-archive/folsom_versions.html12:55
AkendoHi jamespage, Thank you very much. Is there any resource I consider for such kind of information?12:56

AkendoCan I help you :D ?12:59
jamespageAkendo, well running the packages from the -proposed pocket of the cloud-archive and commenting on that bug that it all looks OK would support the case to releasing 2012.2.1 to -updates13:00
jamespageAkendo, we don't release to the CA -updates pocket until it gets released into the quantal -updates pocket if that makes sense13:01

MraAlbertinaHi. I would like to be clarified on 2 matters and if you please help me understand it; 1- when doing a fresh installation from mini.iso is it really necessary to install(/select on tasksel) "Basic Ubuntu Sever"  -  or the system will download and install any needed files/packages when something is installed, like LAMP, for instance? (the 2nd doubt is in standby : )13:31
andolMraAlbertina: Whenever you have apt alt tasksel install something for you it will always make sure that all dependencies are satisfied.13:35

MraAlbertinaandol: thank you. i asked because i see a couple packages in it i will never use, like vim, for example, i prefer nano.13:37
MraAlbertina(i know i know, we always could remove it later... but... just in case13:37
MraAlbertinaThe second doubt. If i recall right, abourt v 11.10, webmin were not recommended anymore. Now i see a lot of users ... using it. Is there any system danger in installing LAMP trough a script Usermin has, that installs it - for the sake of some gui to manage virtual hosts?13:39

rbasakhallyn: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1586766/19:15

Cortezi did a who is on one of the IPs and it said Novalogic, the classic game maker....on my new installed server...19:18

marshallyeah, pretty sure amazon does the same thing with it's ec221:48
marshalljust drops packets on unopened ports21:48
marshallso do you think the firewall might be set to reject packets on 443?21:49
sarnoldmarshall: or, the firewall is configured to allow it, but there is no program listening on that port21:50
marshallsarnold: ok21:50

ChriysHi guys. My ISP is blocking the port 25 do you know if there is a way to verify if the port 465 is open and then how to config postfix to send email throught that port23:45
TheLordOfTimeChriys, are you on a residential ISP?23:46
TheLordOfTimethey'll probably block 465 too23:46
TheLordOfTimeand most mail-sending ports, unless you use a horridly oddball one23:46
Chriys-_-' crap23:47
qman__and you'll be on mail blacklists by default, since you're on a residential DHCP range23:47
qman__you need to relay through a real mail host23:47
Chriyswhat about if i have my own domain let say example.com23:48
qman__whether that's setting up a gmail account for that purpose, or renting a VPS is up to you23:48
TheLordOfTimeChriys, irrelevant23:49
TheLordOfTimeChriys, the DNSBLs check the IP23:49
qman__or getting a business internet with a static IP, or a dedicated server, or a shared web host, or any of the many other ways to get online23:49
TheLordOfTimenot the hostname23:49
TheLordOfTimeif you get business class with static IP it'll probably work23:49
TheLordOfTimeotherwise use an SMTP relay somewhere else through a real mail host23:49
TheLordOfTimesomething that can actually rpocess your email (like google via a google apps account)23:49
Chriysyeah your are right.23:49
TheLordOfTimei use google apps for my domains' stuff23:50
TheLordOfTimeone google apps account, multiple domains.23:50
TheLordOfTimebut i digress - that's because I CBA to go configure a mailserver23:50
Chriysok but do you know a ways to send from the my online store located on my server ?23:50
qman__I run my own but the spam is terrible23:50
TheLordOfTimeChriys, use a backend for your store that can use SMTP?23:51
TheLordOfTimeand by backend i should probably say site/store framework'23:51
TheLordOfTimerather than backend23:51
qman__you can tell your server to relay the mail through a real mail host23:51
qman__you can provide mail for your LAN that way, too23:51
qman__but you need a mail host23:51
Chriysoohh this one can be great. Do you have a link on how to do that ?23:52
qman__before I had a job, I set it up using a gmail account23:52
qman__the downside to that is it all comes from that gmail account23:52
Chriysok i see but do you have a step by step tutorial on how to relay my messages to my gmail account when somebody send email to info@mydomain.com and also how to tell to my apps on my server to use my gmail account instead23:54
Chriysthanks again for your help guys23:54
qman__you can set up your server to send messages using a gmail account, but not to retrieve them, they get delivered into the gmail account23:55
qman__you can then retrieve them with any pop or imap client23:55
qman__or just use the gmail interface23:55
qman__and that does not apply to using your own domain23:56
qman__when you set up the gmail account, that's where the mail is sent from, so you@gmail.com23:56
qman__if you want to send mail from your actual domain you need to pay for a server or service23:56
tonyyarussoChriys: I'm heading home now, but if you remind me later I can give you some configs to start from.23:57
qman__there are hundreds of options, so I can't really tell you what's best for you23:57
tonyyarussoI have a server that sends mail through my gmail account.23:58
tonyyarussoAs for *incoming* mail to info@mydomain.com, that's a bit trickier - first check whether your domain registrar offers a free mail alias option.23:58
