Questif i have installed ubuntu-desktop . how to make ubuntu/kubuntu boot and only go to console automatically. do not load gui?00:38
izanagisansarnold: so, in theory, there's no easy way to install an old version of postgres, even if I have the .tar file?00:40
izanagisanalways thought it was as easy to install old versions of things in linux as it is in windoes00:41
sarnoldQuest: create an override file for lightdm's upstart job: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#override-files00:41
sarnoldizanagisan: if you're starting from a source package, you've got to compile it. if you just want an old binary package, you can go find those (for example, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/postgresql-8.2 )00:43
sarnoldizanagisan: but 8.1 looks too old, if you change that 8.2 to 8.1, you'll see what I mean..00:44
izanagisanoh, ok. Must be easy to restore the 8.1 database into 8.200:44
izanagisanit's just that restoring a 8.1 database dump into 9.2 is damn near impossible00:45
izanagisansarnold: thanks a lot : )00:45
sarnoldheh, even the 8.1 package directory is empty: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/postgresql-8.1/00:46
sarnold.. I thought it'd be there.00:46
izanagisansarnold: I checked the downloadable files, but I get .tar.gz files00:52
izanagisanso, I'd also have to compile them from source, I think?00:52
izanagisanas you can see, I come from UbuntuDesktop and have never compiled from source00:52
izanagisanso I'm not even sure of what's going on there00:52
izanagisanoh no!00:53
izanagisanfound the .DEB00:53
izanagisan: )00:53
sarnoldwhere was it?00:53
izanagisanI can apt-get install a .deb, right?00:53
sarnolddpkg -i ..00:53
izanagisanI get expectable dependency problems. How do I download packages? with aptitude?. For instance: "Package libkrb53 is not installed"01:04
sarnoldizanagisan: you could try installing those with apt-get install libkrb53 or whatever you prefer.. hopefully you won't need similarly ancient versions of the other packages01:06
izanagisanwell, I did *apt-get -f install*01:07
izanagisanand that somehow solved those issues01:08
izanagisanI also had to download the postgresql-client-8.201:08
izanagisanso I did and now it would appear that I have postgresql 8.2!01:08
izanagisanhate when I don't quite understand what happens but oh well, I need to run that test01:09
ddssshow do you people keep your ssh keys if you have to use several desktops for example and u need to access servers from all of these desktops?01:20
TheLordOfTimei give each system its own SSH key01:20
TheLordOfTimeand each of them is able to SSH auth to the user on the server (never root directly)01:20
ddsssTheLordOfTime: do u add passphrase as well?01:20
TheLordOfTimeusually a different one for each system, but i'm hyper paranoid01:21
ddsssTheLordOfTime: how do u keep track of all of these passphrases?01:21
* TheLordOfTime can't tell you.01:21
ddsssTheLordOfTime: iohhh CAMON01:21
TheLordOfTimenah i kid, i keep an encrypted database with the passcodes/keys, if I forget.01:21
ddsssTheLordOfTime: likee keepassx?01:22
TheLordOfTimei don't like keepassx, but that's one method01:22
ddsssTheLordOfTime: truecrypt? cryptfs?01:22
* TheLordOfTime GPG encrypts a sqliteDB with the data on it, and then encrypts the folder the GPG-encrypted sqliteDB is in.01:22
TheLordOfTimeas i said, i'm hyper paranoid, don't use my methods for normal use01:23
ddsssTheLordOfTime: i see...01:23
TheLordOfTimebut generally speaking I will create an SSH key for each system.01:23
TheLordOfTimeand place its public key data into the authorized_hosts file on the server those systems SSH to01:23
TheLordOfTime(the only system that I do NOT have a ssh key passphrase on is one which requires two-factor authentication, biometric+smartcard, to login01:24
TheLordOfTimebut that's an implied hyper-secure system)01:24
ddsssThatOneRoadie: dafuck who are u working for - pentagon?01:24

izanagisanah, I get it, it's not a valid command for the bot, thought it checked Ubuntu commands01:26
TheLordOfTimeizanagisan:  :P01:26
TheLordOfTimeit's just being stupid.01:26
TheLordOfTimeddsss:  i don't work at the pentagon.  but i'm also NOT saying where I work01:27
TheLordOfTimebecause i'm not in the mood to talk about that01:27
ddsssTheLordOfTime: yep. there are many otehr 3-letter agencies.01:27
TheLordOfTimehaving said this, you can either (1) clone your ssh keys across all your systems so they're shared, or01:27
TheLordOfTime(2) create an SSH key for each system accessing the remote system, and on the remote system add each key into the authorized_keys file01:27
TheLordOfTimeor some weird auth system other than that one, but to answer your question... :P01:27
ddsssTheLordOfTime: yeah. I guess that's what I'm gonna do.01:28
sarnoldthe complication is that if you often ssh from one 'desktop' to another 'desktop', compromising one key probably compromises all the keys. I think it's a bit false-sense-of-safety to have multiple ssh keys for multiple client machines, if you ssh among them regularly. if you never ssh -to- a certain machine, giving it a unique key then -does- feel useful to me. (say, your phone or tablet or travel-laptop..)01:31
phunyguyis it possible to create a bridge interface like br0 with no actual devices in it?04:30
phunyguylike an empty bridge staged for future use?04:31

cukenI'm having a problem with vsftpd, internally on an ftp conection I'm able to see the directories that I specify, if I access it from an external address, I have to force it to use active mode, and it shows no directories05:52
sarnoldcuken: does your ftp server have an externally routable IP address?05:55
andolcuken: How does your nat/firewall handle the data channel?05:56
cukenyes it does05:56
cukenI have it on a dynamic dns05:56
cukenaccessible through a name, I'm able to make a connection05:56
cukenand pass my credentials through05:56
cuken:andol I changed the default port and it appears to be open05:56
andolStill sounds like you have your control channel working, but the data channel being the problematic one.05:57
cukenahh, ok so I need to open the data channel as well?05:58
cukenis it possible to have the inbound and data share the same port?05:58
sarnolduse sftp instead :)05:59
andolYeah, sftp alt. http/webdav is really preferable to ftp in almost any case.05:59
Nafallocuken: http://wooledge.org:8000/FtpMustDie06:00
cukensheesh, I've uncovered a movement! I'm sorry!06:00
Nafallothat said, stuff like wordpress seems to like having ftp available :-P06:00
cukenI just wanted easy access to a share, cant we all just get along06:00
sarnoldsftp is easier too! :)06:01
cukenok so use my ssh server with sftp06:01
andolExactly, nothing easy about ftp.06:01

cuken_I'm failing on this sftp setup lol06:36
cuken_I'm getting a message about a non trusted key, and then after i click accept anyways, it looks like my server is blocking it06:37
xroHi, i just found a /dev/.tmp11-1 what is this? is it legitimate?06:48
sarnoldxro: i don't have one on my raring laptop.. check lsof to see if anything is using it?06:50
cuken_Did I read correctly that the root directory of your CHRootDirectory in sftp needs to be owned by the same group as the user connecting?06:52
sarnoldcuken_: sshd_config says "all components of the pathname must be root-owned directories that are not writable by any other user or group" -- I'd guess that group ownership is only necessary if you want to grant read access via group permissions rather than to everyone06:54
cuken_Hm. I'm not understanding that correctly then. I have a ZFS pool mounted at /storage06:55
cuken_currently my regular account owns /storage, and all subfolders within it06:55
cuken_I'm trying to delegate sftp access to my girlfriends account and mine so we can access it externally from our network, so I created a CHrootdirectory to be based off of storage, but external calls are getting blocked06:56
cuken_did I just set it up completely wrong?06:56
cuken_erm not blocked but denied by sftp06:56
sarnold/storage would need to be root-owned and not writable by your user..06:57
cuken_well thats not good lol06:59
cuken_i have all my applications that dump data into storage running on my regular account06:59
sarnoldcuken_: why chroot?07:05

germanstudentHey. I'm wondering how much efford it is to set up VPSs on my own. I have a scenario where I want to run 4 VPS on one machine. Does anyone know how much work is involded setting this up and maintaing the main system afterwards? What's the best technique? KVM?13:12
mardraumI guess you mean "VM"?13:17
germanstudentyes -.-13:18
germanstudentThe question is, if this is doable with medium linux skills or how much I have to learn in order to run this host machine13:19
mardraumqemu-kvm is probably best bet yes, many prefer to use it with libvirt to assist management13:19
mardraumcertainly doable, so long as you are not afraid to 1) google and 2) read13:19

FrobergProbably a silly question, but here goes. I'm running Ubuntu Server 12.10 and I wish to create a few shared folders that are going to be accessed from a Windows system. I.e. I want to map the network drives. Previously I've done so with Samba, but I kind of missed having the ability to see space remaining and such. Would NFS be better in this scenario?13:21
mardraumnfs client on windows? no.13:22
Frobergalso hi sarnold - maxb n' izanagisan :)13:22

Frobergmardraum is there any way for a linux share to display on the remote computer what kind of space is remaining? :)13:23
mardrauma linux share?13:23
mardraumyou mean samba?13:23
FrobergWhatever gets the job done, really. I'm just wondering if I can make a network drive on my ubuntu box that I can add on Windows, and see how much space has been used out of the available space total.13:24
Frobergi.e. like a normal network drive.13:24
FrobergHaven't gotten that to work with Samba. It just seems silly to check the server every time I need to see free space.13:25

GrueMasterNothing definitive on if I can hot-add cpus in kvm on 12.04.2 server. Anyone know more on this? I have a vm with 2 current, 16 max cpus. Bumping current to 4 doesn't appear to affect the guest OS (also 12.04)17:05
RoyKGrueMaster: I don't think that's currently possible. Try asking on #virt @ irc.oftc.net17:20

GrueMasterYea, I read that (and several other web pages).  Nothing definitive, everything contradictory.17:35
GrueMaster"A new cpu should appear on /sys/devices/system/cpu"  -  this is the part that appears to fail for me.  virsh vcpuvount <domain> changes accordingly when I use virsh setvcpus <domain> <#> --live, but the guest doesn't get an acpi event.17:37

Kenjiroguys, I am kindda noob in terms of Ubuntu...18:58
Kenjirohow can I download an old version of a package?18:58
Kenjirothe server where we run redmine was on version 10.04. But today it got upgraded to 12.04. The upgrade went just fine, but now redmine (which is version 1.1.1 (pretty old) won't work)18:59
Kenjiroone thing I noticed, reading it's documentation is that it requires rubygem-1.3.119:00
Kenjiroand now we have rubygems-1.8.5 installed19:00
Kenjiro(among other dependencies)19:00
KenjiroIs the only way to do that downgrade by pointing apt-get to use 10.04 repositories?19:01
sarnoldKenjiro: you may wish to read up on package pinning; you can enable multiple repositories and pin specific packages to come from different repositories. though I wonder why you cannot just use a newer redmine that works with newer software?19:03
Kenjirosarnold: my coworker was trying to make a newer install, on another server. He was having a hard time to make it work19:05
Kenjirothat's the problem when something is installed and configured by some who is no longer in the company...19:06
