jlauno it's just doesn't have any results in the command line00:00
jlauyes00:00
daftykinsjlau: that's normal, you'd need to reboot after that and then check if the connection changes00:00
jlaui found the permissions ok00:00
daftykinsso if you enable execute, then try running the "./scripts/driver-select alx" within a terminal window again00:01
jlauhowever when i typed "make" i got cannot create .config permission denied00:01
Prock81any hints before i take a gander and try sudo aptitude purge linux-image-3.2.0*, and then pick one and break my system and punch my self in the face00:01
daftykinsjlau: interesting, where did you download the file to?00:01
jlaudesktop00:01

jlaui ptu the file on desktop on ubuntu00:01
daftykinsjlau: and what did you run to extract it?00:01
mathfreakProck81: No need to purge. Just install a different kernel version00:01
mathfreakProck81: e.g. install linux-image-3.5.0-37-generic with linux-headers-3.5.0-37-generic00:02
mathfreakthe install process should automatically update grub for you, so when you restart, you can select -3700:02
jlaui use winrar pre-extracted on a windows00:02
jlauthen put it there00:02

Prock81here goes, when i come back, will i have to recompile modules manually for other stuff to work00:06
daftykinsjlau: ok one sec00:07
mathfreakProck81: No. The modules should come along with the kernel package.00:07
nieeHi folks :) any one to help me pls? after restart my pc, hostname again change to ubuntu. i change many time in "/etc/hostname" and "hostname xxxx"00:08
daftykinsjlau: could you bring over the .bz2 original file from your Windows PC and paste it on the desktop?00:08
bbflynnCan anyone help me out please? I am getting "Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed" on a brand new install. I've tried a few different things but nothing has worked. I can provide any details. Any ideas are welcome.00:09

energizer1I want to run a script located in ~/bin as root at boot. I have a cronjob "@reboot ~/bin/script.sh" Does that look good? (Or does the ~ refer to the wrong thing?)00:12
daftykinsjlau: place it on the desktop then right click and select 'extract here'00:12
jlaudaftykins: done00:12
mathfreakbbflynn: What kernel version are you running?00:12
jlauokay00:12
energizer1(its a sudo cronjob)00:12
daftykinsjlau: then change into there with your terminal and run the "./scripts/driver-select alx" again without doing anything else00:13
mathfreakenergizer1: You might want to replace the tilde.00:13
bbflynnmathfreak: I don't know, the only way I can even get a terminal is to boot into the livecd. should I boot into the liveCD to find out? From what I've read there may be an issue with this particular laptop. People said they added a boot option but, no one said which one.00:13

daftykinsnosmi?00:15
Prock81how can i recompile all kernel modules just to be safe?00:15
jlaucool. it compiled and installed00:15
jlaustill no internet connection tho.00:15
daftykinsjlau: neat :) did you do the "sudo modprobe -r alx && sudo modprobe alx" bit too?00:16
bbflynndaftykins: the site I read said pci=nomsi ... is it supposed to be nosmi?00:16
daftykinsbbflynn: i think i read nosmi once before but i can't be sure00:16
daftykinsbbflynn: was it 12.04.2 you installed?00:16
jlaudaftykins now i did.00:16
bbflynndaftykins: yes.00:16
daftykinsjlau: any change from the network manager icon to the left of the speaker + clock top right?00:17
jlaui just did sudo reboot00:17
daftykinsok00:17
daftykinsbbflynn: ok just checking you installed with the latest release, do you know what graphics hardware is in this system?00:17
mathfreakProck81: You'll have to download the kernel source code for that. When you install the kernel, only the kernel object files are installed as well (because for practically everyone, no one wants to work with the source)00:17
bbflynndaftykins: I got 12.04 straight off the ubuntu website. I used the 64bit version b/c the laptop has an AMD Turion. I am looking up what graphics card right now.00:18
Prock81how do i get my souece00:18
Gert_PrabodhHello everyone, Gert_Prabodhhere and i'm here and ready to DDoS.00:18
daftykinsGert_Prabodh: my you are a persistent devil. you may be ready, but you just sit there and don't do anything :(00:19
mathfreakProck81: www.kernel.org BUT WAIT! If you are downloading the kernel source to get to solving a problem, i think something's wrong here.00:19
bbflynndaftykins: ATI IGP Xpress 115000:19
jlaudaftykins: no luck here. still down after that. wonder what is wrong. my mobo can connect with the internet when it's windows 7.00:19
daftykinsjlau: can you pastebin what the terminal outputs from "sudo ifconfig -a" ?00:20
daftykinsbbflynn: hrmm so the LiveCD boots in graphically fine?00:20
bbflynndaftykins: yes. install went fine. but when I boot up I get that recursive failure error...00:21
bbflynndaftykins: I know that the laptop has a bcom card in it. Not sure if that's related at all, but trying to provide anything useful00:22
daftykinsbbflynn: did you have a network connection at the time to allow it to install updates during install?00:22
bbflynndaftykins: yes. Hard-wired00:22
daftykinsbbflynn: i'd skip that, nuke the disk and start again and keep it connectionless00:22
daftykinsan update might be doing something00:22
bbflynndaftykins: ok, am going to do that now. Do you think it might be worthwhile to try the 32bit version? or should I stick with 64 if I've got 64bit architecture?00:23
daftykinsi'd only be running 64 if it had 4GB RAM or more i think00:24
daftykinsdepends what you want to use it for00:24
daftykinsbbflynn: another thought is just holding shift at boot to try another kernel if it still has the one from disc on there - if you can get that far00:24
jlaudaftykins: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5949412/00:25
bbflynndaftykins: Obviously, I'd like it to run as fast as possible, just thought for some reason 32 might be less prone to issues. Hmmm...let me try that, when do I hold shift, before grub or right after?00:25
daftykinsbbflynn: just before it's about to read from the disk after POST, should give you the menu then00:25
daftykinsjlau: hmm, "sudo dhclient eth0"00:26
nurowQuestion.. I'm trying to copy files to my second hard drive. But I can't because the permissions have the drive owner as root. How do I change that?00:26
mathfreakProck81: Let me see if I understand what you're trying to do. You're just trying to install the latest virtualbox, right?00:26
Prock81ya i manage to get it working as of now00:27
daftykinsnurow: sudo chown -R user: /mount/point00:27
Prock81how can i stop the kernel from updating to one that dont have sources or headers00:27
bbflynndaftykins: that doesn't seem to  do anything, not  sure i it's because of the error...I'll try to do an install without the updates.00:28
jlaudaftykins: when i did you sudo dhclient eth0  it is just pausing00:28
nurowthanks daftykins00:28
daftykinsjlau: hmm, yeah i can't tell what that eth0 interface really is, just thought it was worth a try really00:28
daftykinsnurow: no problemo00:29
mathfreakProck81: In synaptic, you can use Package->Lock Version on the packages you would like to not update.00:30

bkboggyI am having a problem with Ubuntu Server installation.  I was at the portion where you choose the disk to install it on and then I realized that I didn't attach the hard drive for this installation.  So, I aborted the installation from the menu (it told me about the possibility of unstable system) and then I installed the needed HDD.  Now, when I try to install it, every time there is a field00:32
bkboggyto fill in response, it fills it with 6 nonstop. So it'll go 666666666666666666666 and so on on every field.  So, I can't enter anything and can't proceed.  Any suggestions?00:32
bleomycinubottu: yeah ntop isnt what i'm after00:32

DommonI'm getting an error while using dkms to build files, and the error log is saying it cannot find the kernel build directory, and is asking me to use the argument KBUILD=<path> agrument. Does that mean I should just add KBUILD=<the path to the KBUILD file> at the end of my dkms line in terminal?00:36
wilee-nileebkboggy, If you plugged the HD in while using the live media you might need to reboot it, not sure really.00:36
bkboggyI restarted several times.00:36
bkboggyHDD installation was cold.00:36
bkboggyI don't have a hot swap setup.00:36
bleomycinqin: yeah but thats not nearly as nice as this little widget sitting on my desktop that i can glance at: http://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/00:36
wilee-nileebkboggy, I would check the md5sum on the disc or iso.00:37
daftykinsbkboggy: as though someone's leaning on the keyboard?00:37
bkboggyyes00:37
bkboggyand when i press 6, it'll fill it twice the speed00:37
bkboggybackspace interrupts it for a fraction of a second00:37
bkboggybut i cant' delete fast enough00:37
wilee-nileebkboggy, pull the key and look for crud maybe00:38
bkboggyTried, that's not the issue.  I have a mechanical keyboard G710+00:38
qinbleomycin: Is is for m$ machines? what about peers, do you need to intall anything?00:38
mathfreakDommon: You might want to try #kernel00:38
bkboggyit worked just fine on the first installation, but after I aborted it, it started doing that00:38
Dommonmathfreak: Will do, thank you.00:39
qinbleomycin: easiest widget would be conky00:39
daftykinsbkboggy: does it still do it with no input devices hooked up at all? absolute minimum of things attached to the system?00:39
bkboggyhaven't tried that00:39
wilee-nileebkboggy, Strange, all you can really do is knock out variables, starting with the simplest, like a sum check....etc00:39
bkboggywilee-nilee: sum check?00:40
bleomycinqin: the link is the windows equivalent of what i'm looking for. Really all i want is something that looks like that which polls and graphs bandwidth from a device (my router) via snmp in real time00:40
wilee-nilee!md5sum | bkboggy00:40
ubottubkboggy: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows00:40
wilee-nileebkboggy, There is the the mini disc now called the alternative a net install only 30MB if yours misses the sum check.00:41
bkboggyhmm00:42
bkboggyi'm just not sure what that does00:42
bkboggythe sum check00:42
wilee-nileebkboggy, It checks if the disc is the same as it should be basically.00:42
bkboggyi didn't install ubuntu yet, the error occurs during the installation and it was fine the first time around... i just aborted it and everything went down the hill 10 minutes later00:42
bkboggyand the iso is burnt onto a dvd, so i don't see how it would change00:42
bkboggyI also checked the ISO through the menu to make sure there are no errors00:43
wilee-nileebkboggy, The iso might be bad, don't over think this.00:43
bkboggyis this sum check the same as checking if the installation disk is good through the menu during the installation?00:43
bkboggybecause i checked that and my memory00:44
harrishow can i install the new libre00:44
wilee-nileebkboggy, basically you have to use an empirical method in analysis. no a menu check not what that bis is not a sum test.00:44
wilee-nileebkboggy, Do you mean the check disc at the forst gui on booting the disc?00:45
bkboggyyes00:45
bkboggywhere it has the memory check, disk check, etc00:45
Dr_Willisharris:  if you mean libreoffice. id say find a ppa for it.00:45
harrisDr_Willis, IT ISNT OFFICAL whoops sorry for caps00:46
wilee-nileebkboggy, Yeah that is abasically a test, however I have seen discs pass that and a md5sum and still not work, could be to fast of a burn, once again I say knock out the varibles using an empirical method, don;t guess be sure.00:46
Dr_Willisharris:  if the version in the offical repos is not new enough for you.. use a ppa.  theres not a newer OFFICIAL version then00:46
Dr_Willis!backports00:46
ubottuIf new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they may go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports - See also !packaging00:46
bkboggywilee-nilee: alright, i'll do the md5sum.exe00:46
bkboggybe right back00:46
harrisits libreoffice 4.100:47
Dr_Willis!latest00:47
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.00:47
harrisits on their homepage00:47
wilee-nileebkboggy, Its a pain at times that is for sure, that sort of error is a witch hunt. ;)00:47
harrishttp://www.libreoffice.org/default/00:47
bkboggyyeah, it's just odd that it was fine the first time around00:47
Dr_Willisharris:  so - look for a ppa that packages the latest release for ubuntu would be the normal way to get it. or wait and see if it eventually gets into the backports repos.00:48
wilee-nileebkboggy, The HD has a partition table?00:48
bkboggyit doesn't even get to that point of choosing the disk, i'm stuck at the network portion, since it fills all the fields with 6's.  But yes, the new HDD was partitioned into 200:48
bkboggyi formated both partitions, so they're clean, but it's still split into 2 for now, until the installation occurs00:49
wilee-nileebkboggy, Cool, just sort of guessing, I will leave you to your work. ;/00:49
bkboggyi'm guessing it'll give me an option of merging them?00:49
bkboggyI'm new to Linux00:49
wilee-nileebkboggy, No merging, but a install option00:49
harrisgtg00:49
wilee-nileeinstall"s plural00:50
bkboggyHow would I merge paritions on HDD?  I have 2TB which I have Windows 8 on, and then the 250GB on for Ubuntu Server... but it's split into 2 partitions, 200 and 5000:50
wilee-nileebkboggy, In linux you can only remove and expand partitions to that unallocated space00:51
bkboggyoh, so I can remove the 50GB partition?00:51
bkboggysince it's 200GB and 50GB now00:51
wilee-nileebkboggy, And a ntfs for windows will not sponsor linux it goes in a ext type, if I read your question correctly00:52
bkboggyoh, so I don't even have to worry about it, I can just use the entire disk for the installation?00:52
bkboggyit'll override it for Linux?00:52
wilee-nileebkboggy, Yeah if nothing is in the 50gig you can delete it with say gparted on a live cd, and expand the other into it00:53
bkboggyoh cool00:53
wilee-nileebkboggy, Yeah the only time I pre-partition is on windows installs if I want no boot partition or for them to not intermingle the boot.00:53
wilee-nileesat with 2 or more MS install they will mix the boot together a real pain.00:54
wilee-nileesay*00:54
bkboggytrue, that's how I did back in the day, that's why I had my disk like that... but with hard drives being so dirt cheap these days I just buy more00:54
bkboggyYeah, Windows is an invasive system, it'll mess things up even if you try to install it on a different partition of the same disk and you have Linux on it00:55
bkboggythat's why Linux goes after00:55
wilee-nileebkboggy, It's a beast but can be controlled. ;)00:55
bkboggyI am getting fed up with it, hence why I'm going with Ubuntu, so I can have less stress with a server00:55

wilee-nileebkboggy, For a refrence there is a #ubuntu-server channel as well if needed.00:56
bkboggyThe only reason I'm staying with Windows is due to the fact that it has an enourmouse base of applications which linux lacks... but it's nice to use both00:56

Guest34471Hi folks, how do I ls only directory names without a slash at the end01:20
jribGuest34471: why do you want to do that?01:21
Guest34471jrib: because I need it for a bash script01:22
jribGuest34471: ok, well ask what you actually want to do in the end because in general you don't want to parse ls01:22
Guest34471jrib: well I want to get the filepath of the first file in a set of folers01:24
jribGuest34471: first in what order?01:25
Guest34471jrib: any file would be ok too, heres a aexample: ./d1/f nextline ./d2/f .... I wanted to get the folder name in a while do loop and concat the foldername without a slash with the output of ls -1 "\"$folder\"*"|head -n 101:28

Guest34471holstein: yes I know but they dont play nice together if you want to get something like this processed: ls -1 "a folder name\"*|head -n 101:40

MACscrlol, im trying to upgrade puppet. I did add a new repo for it. Why in the world is it asking to remove them to solve the dependency issue with the upgrade? http://pastie.org/pastes/8206825/text?key=h91nxf5yexi73xlkhzodxw01:44

ubuntu39290hey guys, is there any stability differences between ubuntu and xubuntu or just a lighter weight DE with xubuntu?01:45
holsteinubuntu39290: xubuntu *is* ubuntu01:45
jpdsMACscr: Or aptitude for that matter; apt-get is how things are done.01:46
MACscrholstein: but this is more a general question i would think about why something would ask to remove everything its actually trying to upgrade01:46
ubuntu39290holstein, thought so, it just threw me off when it said they were not "official" releases but community driven01:46
jpdsMACscr: Because you're using aptitude.01:46
MACscrwell if i just use apt-get, it just says they were held back01:46
MACscrbut no other reason01:46
ubuntu39290apt-get dist-upgrade01:46
holsteinMACscr: generally, that PPA is not supported here.. *anything* about it could be causing the breakage/issues you are seeing..01:47
MACscrthe repo is directly from puppetlabs. I guess i might have to ask them01:47
MACscrits unfortunate the ubuntu repo is so far behind on its version01:48
wilee-nileeMACscr, Might be a reason for that.01:48

MACscrubuntu39290: I just installed foreman and it seems to require the newer version even though it didnt seem to complain about that when it installed everything. The current version of puppet doesnt have a "module" command available for installing puppet modules01:50
Nisstyre-laptopSometimes mplayer doesn't stop playing after a video is finished. It just does nothing and displays a black screen. I've done a bit of searching but could not turn up much on google. Any ideas?01:51
ubuntu39290MACscr, not sure if apt-get clean, autoclean would help your situation out possibly someone more knowledgeable would know if that would help or not01:52
Guest34471ok I found a bash command to trim slash away and there commes the next problem, If I execute the script I get a bunch of cannot access "foldername"/* no such file or directory but if I enter the exact same comnmand by hand everything works fine01:52
Nisstyre-laptopIt wouldn't really be an issue, but I have a program that monitors a directory for new files and plays them, but it will just block if the mplayer process never dies.01:52
wilee-nileeNisstyre-laptop, you can run killall mplayer01:52
ubuntu39290MACscr, and apt-get -f install01:52
Nisstyre-laptopwilee-nilee: I have no way to tell if the video is finished (from my program)01:53

Nisstyre-laptopwilee-nilee: no, it is just one computer. I'm using this program I wrote to play videos: https://github.com/nisstyre56/LazyPlay01:54
Nisstyre-laptopit watches a directory for new files and plays them...01:54
Nisstyre-laptopthe issue is that mplayer doesn't die after finishing a video, so I have to manually kill it each time01:54
wilee-nileeNisstyre-laptop, Honestly beyond ubuntu support using your own code, and important info up front, does not mean you will get no help, but details are pertinent. ;)01:56
Nisstyre-laptopwilee-nilee: well it happens with normal mplayer usage, although obviously that usually means I'm sitting at the computer01:56
wilee-nileeNisstyre-laptop, I would use another player mplayer is a bit dated, but it does have a list to play from.01:57
Nisstyre-laptopwilee-nilee: perhaps yeah01:57
Nisstyre-laptopmaybe I could make vlc die when it finishes playing something01:57
wilee-nileeor will make a list I use vlc in general but single plays01:57

Braden`Since I don't know how "long" the file is03:39
Dr_WillisBraden`:  it has an option as to what line to start on.03:39
toneswill try that03:39
Braden`oh ok03:39
Braden`I will read the manpage03:39
Braden`Thank you03:39
SonikkuAmericatones: When all else fails, sudo. Then use --force.03:39
SonikkuAmerica:)03:39
Dr_WillisBraden`:  i just recall the syntax for it is a little weird03:39
Dr_Willistones:  think about it,. dd is doing very low level stuff that can trash the system. You wouldent want just any user using it. ;)   of course a user could use it to do some non-critical things. ;P03:40
Dr_Willistones:  writing to a /dev/XXXX device would require sudo rights.03:40
tonesI want to wipe the drive complletey03:40
Dr_Willistones:  that should be rather easy to do with dd. just DONT make a typo with the /dev/sdXX name03:40
tonesshred didnt' work either so I guess sudo is the solution03:41
* wilee-nilee stutters dd dd dd dban03:41
tonessdf, sdv which is which?03:41
Dr_Willistones:  if you dont know what device it is you want to erase.. then i suggest not playing with dd.03:42
deserteagle:| don't03:42
Dr_Willisuse sudo blkid to check device names03:42
Dr_Willisi wonder if gparted has a erase the drive option.03:42
willowwilee-nilee: can you elaborate about internally changing skype themes?03:43
tonessda1 is the drive03:43
Shadow}}I believe he means doing it manually by modding the code itself?03:43
aeon-ltdtones: check and double check03:43
Dr_Willistones:  err no.. sda1 is the first PARTITION on the drive.. the drive is /dev/sda03:43
Dr_Willistones:  sda would normally be the first hard drive in the system03:44
wilee-nileewillow, The preferences or options what ever it calls has a skins choice I believe, I have used skype rarely03:44
Shadow}}Yes, It does.03:44
Shadow}}willow; Skype preferences allows you to select a theme, So I presume you could download a theme to use with the selection?03:44
tonesthere should be a gui program that will wipe the drive, will gparted do a wipe?03:45
Dr_Willisreminds me of years ago when every app seemed to just Have to have a 'theme' feature. :)  theme/skins/whatever they called them to make the app look as ugly as possible.03:45
willowshadow: I found a website with themes for windows and maybe mac, but I didn't see anything for linux03:45
wilee-nileetones, Not that I see other than a delete03:46
Dr_Willistones:  fire up gparted and look in its menus. you can delete the partions with gparted.03:46
Dr_Willistones:  what are you eraseing exactly?03:46
Shadow}}Try googling Skype Linux Version___ Themes03:46
willowmy issue is the default theme is a blaring white background. Just want a  black background03:46
toneserasing the entire hard drive, and want nothing but bios left03:46

Dr_Williswillow:  compiz has an inverse plugin that can invert a single window ;)03:46
tonesfrom a used computer that I bought03:47
tonesand will fresh install ubuntu03:47
Dr_Willistones:  bios is not on the hd.. and if you use gparted to delete the partions.. and remake new ones and reformat them.. then the hd is empty03:47
Dr_Willistones:  the installer can erase/repartition the hd for you03:47

tonesbut if I install ubuntu from usb, will that wipe the drive automatically03:47
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest30297
toneswill it ask about deleting the drive and repartitioning?03:48
Dr_Willistones:  you can tell the installer to erase the hard drive03:48
Dr_Willisyou havent even tried the instller yet have you. ;) it does ask.03:48

Dr_Willisbut ubuntu is not crunchbang. :)03:50

Dr_Willisis say try lubuntu on it..03:50

Shadow}}I'm about to ask what may be the most ignorant question asked here; Does an HDD affect the speed of the entire system itself?03:50
Dr_Willislubuntu is lighter then xfce03:50

somsiptones: fair enough. Just recognised the SSD size and was going to contribute, but I'll get back to work instead :)03:52
abaddonI've built a multiboot usb using Multisystem. My problem arises when I try to boot into one of my Iso's. It says "Authentication failed" several times and then just seems to freez at that state. The system appears to boot by giving the ubuntu logo but then droping to the above issue. Anyone have any ideas?03:52
jpdsShadow}}: dd.03:52
Shadow}}!dd03:52
Shadow}}Erm, dd. ?03:53
aeon-ltdabaddon: at what stage does it say auth failed? do you have a new mobo - then is secure boot on?03:53
Shadow}}Not trying to flood ubottu with mistaken commands...03:53

Dr_WillisHmm silly bot. ;P03:54
Shadow}}!info clonezilla03:54
Dr_Willis!backup03:54
ubottuThere are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning03:54
Shadow}}!cloning03:54
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » (this may cause problems with multiarch before 12.10) - See also !automate03:54
abaddonaeon-ltd, No new mobo. It's a lLatitude D620 laptop. The Iso was working up till now.03:54
Shadow}}...Okay thats too much for me; I just want to copy this entire drive...Wait, Why bother... Not like I did much on here so far and I remember everything I did... >->;03:55
abaddonaeon-ltd, it might be an issue where I don't have the right software installed though. I built a system through Ubuntu-builder03:55
Shadow}}Plus It lets me not encrypt the other drive... Since kinda fruitless anyhow...03:55
aeon-ltdShadow}}: copy entire drive? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Disk_Cloning#Cloning_an_entire_hard_disk03:56
abaddonaeon-ltd, But rather than install willy nilly I kept all suggested and recommended pkgs from installing.03:56
Shadow}}First: Opinions on encryption...03:56
Dr_Willisi did an instal to a 8gb usb flash drive once.. then used dd to clone it to several other pcs'  :) saved me some time03:56
Shadow}}Should I bother encrypting the drive/home in hopes of improved hacker security? No, Pointless... Right?03:57
Shadow}}After-all, Not like they won't just use the same encryptor to unencrypt...03:57
aeon-ltddecryption doesn't work like that03:58
Dr_WillisShadow}}:  this is on a laptop you are afraid will get stolen?03:58
tomreynecrypting the drive is not useful if you're worried about people compromising your system though the network while it's running03:58
willowDr_Willis: I was looking into the compiz inverse plugin you mentioned. Looks like I have to download CCSM to get it working?03:58
Shadow}}Heck naw, This is an internal. =.= I'm telling you I encrypted it for no reason...Mostly out of curiosity. xD03:58
Dr_Williswillow:  that makes sence to me. theres also a few other color-alterning plugins i recall03:59
Dr_Williswillow:  inverse, and i think i saw a color-blind plugin once.03:59

aeon-ltdgray: the deb from google doesn't work?04:00
Dr_WillisI recall these guys posting copywrited material to youtube and it was 'negative'-ed  so i had to use that plugin to watch the video in normal colors. ;P04:00
Shadow}}When it boils down to it; Should I ever have the mispleasure of running into the group of hackers that kept me off-line for three months solid. Theres nothing I could do anyhow other than stay off-line in all sense of the phrase.04:00
Dr_Willisuniversal:  i dont even use a touchpad much. so no idea.  and yes dconf is like a regiestry.04:00
universalDr_Willis: are you on a Desktop with a mouse ?04:01
Dr_Willisuniversal:  yes.04:01
Shadow}}...Only reason they started leaving me alone is because I got the /leader's/ actual mac address and told him so. >->04:01
abaddonaeon-ltd, But I don't know what pkg is missing that's causing an Autheentication failure  error04:01
tomreynShadow}}: some use cases where encrypting the drive / home is / can be useful: (1) giving system to computer repair shop including HDDs (warranty may be void if removed), (2) intruders in your apartment, (3) feds raiding your place, (4) intent to be able to sell the disk in the future04:02
jpdsShadow}}: Encryption is useful if used wisely, yes.04:03
tomreyn...and of course the stolen laptop04:03
Dr_Willisdrats.. another dvd backup with read issues.. always seems to be the last file i put on the dvd..04:03
Shadow}}The 3rd being the only reason I can see valid, And it is not valid. Should that occur regardless the password itself would have to use encryption and be longer than the entire drive itself, Not to mention should that occur they'd only claim something else to charge me with.04:04
aeon-ltdtomreyn: about the feds, the way the 4th and 5th amendments seem to be changing that may not hold up in court04:04
Dr_Willisi rember why i started putting a 200mb  zz_paddingfile.avi on  each dvd years ago. ;)04:04
universalDr_Willis: one more question - how to safely remove external storrages like pendrives and memory cards ? simply clicking the eject button only unmounts them, I want it detached it at the same time...with only unmount the light keeps on glowing meaning power is still passing through the respected drives !04:04
harikt /join #auraphp04:04
Dr_Willisuniversal:  if its unmounted. you can remove it04:04
universalDr_Willis: but what about power ?04:04
Dr_Willisuniversal:  what about it?04:04
wilee-nileeuniversal, If you plug them in you will see a safely remove option.04:05
tomreynaeon-ltd: there's always rubberhoses04:05
universalDr_Willis: detaching cuts the power....04:05
jpdsShadow}}: Someone misplaces the laptop and your company data is stolen, etc.04:05
Shadow}}O.o I remember when I was 14...I'd always mess up and post my ident pass in a channel... then have to deal with the ghost commands before they did the rest. Lol..04:05
Shadow}}Its not a laptop. ._.04:05
Dr_Willistheres a slightly diffeance btween unmounting and 'safely' remove - i recall  the remove also makes the kernel no longer see the device. you must remove/reinsert it to work with it. which Can be very annoying if you wanted to partion the hd04:05
Shadow}}Tis mah spare internal hdd.04:05
tomreynaeon-ltd: http://xkcd.com/538/04:06
Dr_Willisuniversal:  you can remove it if its unmounted..  so it dosent matter much04:06
universalwilee-nilee: that what I'm trying to say that clicking the eject icon only unmounts it...but not detachs, so what i do is manually detach them with udisks from command line04:06
Dr_Willisplug in flash.. copy stuff from it.. safely remove, run gparted... cant find the usb to repartion.. ;P04:06
universalDr_Willis: ok....but I read somewhere that if power is continuously flowing through drives then its not safe04:07
Shadow}}So; It would be wisest to simply install Xubuntu onto my main HDD without encryption and immediately create a back-up disc, No?04:07
wilee-nileeuniversal, Do whatever floats your boat. ;)04:07
willowAlright, thanks for the help. I gtg now.04:07
Shadow}}*After redoing what I have done to this one.04:08
Dr_Willisuniversal:  never seen  it be an issue.04:08
abaddonDr_Willis, have you tried sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sd"blay"04:08
universalwilee-nilee: lol yea.....but sometimes it feels like wfm to manually detach each drive everytime04:08
abaddonDr_Willis, have you tried sudo mkfs.vfat -n newDriveName /dev/sd"blay"04:08
Dr_Willisabaddon:  one way you 'remove' the device make the .dev.sdXX entry vanish. ;)04:08
Dr_Willisabaddon:  which can be a bit supriseing.04:08
Dr_Willis!iso04:09
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.04:09
Shadow}}Actually... probably would be smarter to create a back-up onto my 1TB usbdrive..Huh?04:09
abaddonDr_Willis, oh, you were talking about partitioning the drive so I was thinking of the cmd04:09
abaddonDr_Willis,  ahhh, i see04:09

Dr_WillisIF you burn a data dvd. (with several dozen video files on it) but dont finalize it (i cant recall what app i used 6 yrs ago to make them)     would that make the last file unreadable? or would that make the whole disk unreadable?04:45
lucidiumI'm trying to get a ATI Radeon 9800 to work with the "radeon" driver and output to S-Video, but I'm getting nothing on the screen. X itself appears to be working fine, I can open a VNC session with no problem.04:45
Dr_Willisxmetal:  yes :) ive seen bots ban each other befor.. but i think these are smarter then that.04:45
holsteinlucidium: it might not work... i would just try all the driver options04:45
Dr_Willislucidium:  i recall ages ago - that a lot of the features of the ati cards like that - was not supported. (had an all-in-wonder-pro back then)04:46
lucidiumholstein, fglrx's aticonfig doesn't detect the adapter, i guess its slightly too old. what other options are there?04:46
jupedupeMay I ask a question regarding more of Backtrack Linux and it's applications here?04:46
Dr_Willisati likes to remove older cards from being supportred by the fglrx drivers. and that is a rather old card isent it?04:46
xmetalsorry Dr_,  i know i have used "Format Factory" in Windows before but can not recall any linux app that does that ... i had a disc that goofed up but with that i could at leaste get good "chunk" off the dvd04:47
Dr_Willisjupedupe:  backtrack has its own support channels04:47
holsteinlucidium: if there are other drivers available.. not sure.. an options is always that it will not work, unfortunately04:47
xmetaldang04:47
jupedupedr: the channel isn't in use anymore04:47
Dr_Willisxmetal:  its always the last file.04:47
xmetaltrue04:47
Dr_Willisjupedupe:  the backtrack homepage - i belive tells that the support channel is on a differnt server04:47
lucidiumDr_Willis, it is, but the ubuntu help page says it should be fully supported with dual-head support and 3D acceleration.04:47
=== flyin4x4 is now known as flyn4x4
xmetalthat reminds me again i have to make a DEVEDE dvd of mathtutordvd.com tutorials04:48
Dr_Willisxmetal:  i just cant recall what i used (it had to been a windows app)  but i dont recall if i had tried differnt ways/apps :) some of my backups worl. some dont.04:48
jupedupedr: it said it's on this server and it can be found but it's impossible to write there, it's "closed". also impossible to register to forum.04:48
xmetal:) that program has never failed me04:48
holsteinlucidium: dualhead doesnt mean the svideo though, i wouldnt assume..04:48
holsteinlucidium: what page?04:48
lucidiumholstein, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver, it's classified as R35004:49
Dr_Willislucidium:  I dont recall the svideo ever working for my ati cards wheni had them. but that was quite some time ago.04:49
Dr_Willisi wonder if any mondern cards have svideo out. thats a rather rare connector these days04:49
Dr_WillisI do have a VGA->rca/svideo adaptor i got for $20 :)04:49
xmetalhmm isobuster may be able to help04:49

iampozhi guys, I am looking for some type of way to view my gpu usage04:54
iampozanyone have any suggestions?04:54
Dr_Willisiampoz:  there may be some 'indicator applets' for it. askubuntu.com has a large list of them.04:55
Dr_Willisiampoz:  you  mean your ati/nvidia VIdeo card chip right?04:55
FroMasterSo I have a first boot script that when it runs it chokes on one of the commands. I can't figure out what user it runs as... I did echo "$USER" and echo $USER and it shows empty in the log04:55
FroMasterWhat user do boot scripts run as?04:55
iampozDr_willis: nvidia, yes04:55
Dr_WillisFroMaster:  they would run as root i imagine. where are they getting ran from exactly?04:55
jpdsFroMaster: I don't think users exist at that point.04:56
Dr_Willisiampoz:  i recall some nvidia indicator-applets i think. but i never used them04:56
Dr_Willisiampoz:  i also seem to recall seeing some conky scripts that showed the gpu info.04:56
iampozDr_willis: I found one called nvidia-smi, but can not find its location to install it04:56
Dr_Willisiampoz:  its location?04:57
Dr_Willis!find nvidia-smi04:57
iampozapt-get does not work with it04:57
FroMasterDr_Willis: its a long script that 99% works except for the end04:57
ubottuFile nvidia-smi found in nvidia-173, nvidia-304, nvidia-304-updates, nvidia-310, nvidia-310-updates, nvidia-313-updates04:57
Dr_Willisiampoz:  seems to be in the normal nvidia driver packages04:57
iampozhttp://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/man1/alt-nvidia-current-smi.1.html04:57
jpdsFroMaster: What is this script trying to accomlish?04:57
user_any software to open .pod files (work breakdown structure -mpp) files04:58
iampoza tarball is there, but i am unsure about installing somthing that seems very old04:58
iampozsorry, not a tarball, a gz file04:58
Dr_Willisiampoz:  the bot just sort of said.. that binary is in the nvidia-driver packages in the standard repos04:59
FroMasterjpds: I'm building a virtual appliance, so on first boot its installing and configuring a complex software package04:59
iampozoh i see04:59
jpdsFroMaster: can't you do that once, and ship it as is?04:59
iampozlol wish I knew how to use it now04:59
Dr_Willis$ which nvidia-smi04:59
Dr_Willis/usr/bin/nvidia-smi04:59
Dr_Willisiampoz:  just run 'nvidia-smi' and it spits out some info05:00
iampozhaha, thanks, not sure why I didn't do that in the first place05:00
FroMasterjpds: a 30 day license key is generated during the software's install process so I can't05:00
jupedupeif anyone here is familiar with using pyrit (at BackTrack), please gimme a private message or something. :) I think this is not the right channel for that?05:01
iampozunfortunitly, the gpu process part of it is not supported05:01
iampozall i get is the temp and mem usage05:01
jpdsFroMaster: Hmm, and I guess you can't generate them and put them on a website somewhere where people can access?05:01
jpdsFroMaster: Otherwise, you could have the box wget a URL on boot and use that for the license.05:02
iampozI am running pyrit, the card is running at 85 dec C so I am assuming my gpu is being used... just does not seem very fast05:02
iampozmy cpus are running at like 94-95 dec C... scary05:03
jupedupe:o05:03
Dr_Willisiampoz:  or the info is getting reported wrong. :)  seen that happen befor also05:03
iampozwell I can not touch the surface under my laptop, so I am assuming it is that hot.05:04
Dr_Willisiampoz:  a toasty lap warmer. ;)05:04
iampozalso, pyrit is in the rep for ubuntu, does that mean it is supported here?05:04

histouniversal: what are you using for virtualization?05:49
Dr_Willis!kvm05:50
ubottukvm is the preferred virtualization approach in Ubuntu. For more information see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM05:50
Dr_Willisisent that kvm? i forget now. :) i never use that advacned stuff05:50
CarsonIf I install Wubi 12.04, can I upgrade to 13.04 with full support?05:50
universalnothing...I'm asking how to do it....Ive only used virtual box until now to run one OS inside another.05:50
universalhisto: ^^05:50
histoCarson: wubi is gone05:51
Dr_WillisCarson:  best would be to not use wubi. Upgradeing wubi can be very problematic05:51
histouniversal: then create another vm and run them both05:51
universalhisto: throw some light05:51

histouniversal: just like you created the first one05:51
Dr_WillisVustom:  if no one knows.. id say check askubuntu.com05:52

SwaggOh no! http://i.imgur.com/jB4bAQ8.png05:52

universalhisto: thats one vm inside a running OS but I'm thinking of a external VM with several OS running parallely05:52
universalside by side05:53
Dr_WillisCarson:  a full normal install beats wubi in many ways.. if you cant partion. id say use ubuntu in virtualbox.05:53

Dr_Willisuniversal:  that dosent mean its a text editor. if you want a simple word processor - see abiword06:26

Dr_Willisrequireing the user to specifically make the file executable i guess is a ok comprimize. the worse case would be it never asked.. and let the user run just anything.. that would lead to potential malware attacks07:13

tamiya_found nothing08:37
Dr_Willistamiya_:  how did you install the drivers?08:38
Shadow}}01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV610 HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 2350/2400 Series] <-- This...08:38
tamiya_don't remember08:38
Vustomhisto: I'm up to the last part.08:38
histoVustom: and this is a remote ubuntu server?08:38
Dr_Willistamiya_:  if you used the whatever.run command to install them.. thenit should have an uninstall option.08:38
Dr_WillisShadow}}:  thats the audio going to your monitor over the hdmi cable.08:38
llutzVustom: you don't want to use pptp nowadays, its pretty unsecure. use openvpn08:39
Vustomhisto: It's hosted on my VPS, so yeah.08:39
Dr_WillisShadow}}:  not all  of those are supported.08:39
histoVustom: You need to do some more reading so you understand what you are doing.08:39
Vustom:c08:39
Shadow}}...I'm going to lose my mind, Fine... I'll download the catalyst driver and continue the instructions for installation...08:39
tamiya_anyone know?08:39
VustomWhat am I doing wrong?08:40
histoVustom: it's not the remoteip of your server it's the client's ip08:40
histoVustom: and why you would be setting up pptp in the first place is beyond me08:41
rajathey08:41
histoShadow}}: lspci -k   will show you which driver is in use for each of your devices08:41
rajathey08:41

llutzVustom: there is openvpn-connect for ios08:42
VustomCould you help me setup OpenVPN on my VPS then? :)08:43

al_nz1hmmm, so I mounted a share for nfs - but it wont let me copy because it says I have no permission to create dirs on the remote share?08:44
Shadow}}histo; It says on my video : in use: radeon <-- So... Its working, No?08:45
al_nz1even tho I think on the remote system I do?08:45
al_nz1How do I check?>08:45
histoShadow}}: you are using the open source radeon driver currently08:45
Dr_Willisal_nz1:  on the server, you need to setup how it maps permissions and what it allows people to do with what shares.08:45
llutzal_nz1: make sure you sync your uids/users on all hosts when using nfs, makes it much easier08:45
Dr_Willisoh yea.. :) users id differning can be a pain. ;)08:46
al_nz1llutz: yeah the server is a QNAP NAS - running busybox - not sure where the nfs settings file will be08:46
al_nz1but in the web gui it is set to allow RW for *08:46
histoVustom: Is there a reason you are trying to get your IOS device on a vpn with your VPS?08:46
Dr_Willisi always add my users in teh same order on all machines. so they are always the same.08:46

histoShadow}}: What is the problem you are trying to fix?08:47
Vustomhisto: Yeah, for when I go to public Wi-Fi's etc, or want to watch Netflix outside of the US..08:47
al_nz1llutz: would changing the owner on the target foolder to nobody fix the error?08:47
VustomI have the server. May as well use it rather than paying more money for one already setup by someone else?08:48

gordonjcpVustom: doesn't matter as long as it's all the same08:51
Shadow}}histo; Yeah theres a reason, Cause no one said to do it. ._.08:51
VustomI think I put the wrong IP as remoteip08:51
Vustom:/08:51
gordonjcpVustom: 192.168.0.x is probably a bad idea08:52
histogordonjcp: that's what he's following essentially but doesn't understand the ip address range in the remoteip being the client's ip's etc...08:52
gordonjcpVustom: where it says 192.168.0.whatever, pick something else08:52
gordonjcpVustom: I use 192.168.29.x08:52
Dr_Willisif the 'addational-drivers' tool dosent show the fglrx drivers available for your card. well..  just installing them via apt-get may or may not work. (i dont use ati any more, so no idea what cards work and what dont these days)08:53

Dr_Willisof course if the open sourced drivers are working.. why are you needing the fglrx? ;)08:55
Shadow}}Because, I don't know if they are working to the fullest extent being an HD 2400 PRO.08:55
Dr_Willisnormally on your first bootup. there will be a dialog mentioning the fglrx/additional-drivers tool08:55
Dr_Willisare you doing anything thats needing that much video powar? ;)  well fan controll is one reason many peoplke use the fglrx I guess.08:55

Shadow}}There ya go, This card burns my tower as is... If these drivers will control the fan better thats all the reasoning I need to try. Dr_Willis. lol..08:56

Dr_Willisyou will have to reboot for them to get in use.08:58
surtVustom: curl --retry 4 "ifconfig.me"08:58

Dr_Willisits weird that the additional-d4riers tool dident mention them. perhaps the card is just a bit too new for it.08:59

surtVustom: Bad advice, sorry, used to work.08:59
VustomIt works.08:59
VustomJust takes a minute.08:59
Dr_Willisall you would do at the ati site was download their .run package and run it.. i thought. ;P08:59

gbencenewuser: do u see this device at lsusb?09:05
newuserhisto I must run it in Terminal?09:05

histonewuser: yes09:05
gordonjcpVustom: okay, you want something like localip 192.168.55.1 and remoteip 192.168.55.100-20009:05
surthisto: the computer I'm using right now has no xorg.conf...09:05

UbnoobtuSo, I'm trying to install UNetbootin on here, but it downloads as a .exe. I click on it to run it like you would in windows and it says it needs a program to install it. I download it, and it only makes things worse by seperating them into 6 different .par2 extentions. what can I learn rom this and where do I begin?10:00

ikoniasmoke: dosemu is a windowed application, how do you expect to use it without the window popping up10:07
cynicistUbnoobtu: if unetbootin isn't working for you, you can always create a bootable usb drive the manual way using dd10:08
dazruis there an alternative to webhttrack in the software center?10:08
ikoniaaltin: how are you launching it ?10:08
smokeikonia, like i said, i'm running it for a bbs door game, so i dont need to see it locally thru the window in x10:08
ActionPa1snipglowe: does the system have a make and model?10:08
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: use dd instead of unetbootin10:08
ikoniasmoke: yes, but it needs te winow, it's a windowed application10:08
smokeikonia, i dont believe it does.10:09
cynicistUbnoobtu: sudo dd if=/path/to/iso of=/usb/drive (ex /dev/sdd, not /dev/sdd1)10:09
altinikonia, that is when I launch it thorugh terminal10:09
cynicistUbnoobtu: to find your usb drive letter you can use "df -h"10:09
smokeikonia, it has xwindows support, (which is whats causing it to pop up in a window), there are arguments you could pass to it to force it to write to the terminal10:09
ikoniasmoke: is there anything in dosemu --help to suggest it can be run without a window10:09

ubottumojeime: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades10:56
wilee-nileeUbnoobtu, It is good and that is the purpose10:56
mojeimeblazemore: it's a server edition10:56

dazruActionPa1snip: could you please give me an advice for a good easy html editor?10:57
wilee-nileetamiya, The channel ask you don't swear, for one you are using a rooted terminal I'm not surprised your having problems, you have to follow protocols to distro's10:58
Ubnoobtucynicist, wilee-nilee, I want to start a business recovering data from harddrives. what other linux builds would be useful for recovery, repairing, and other "pc-medic" type of situtions?10:58
mojeimeblazemore: can i clean cache somehow, because when i run apt-cache policy phpmyadmin it's showing the old version10:58
vltUbnoobtu: grml.org10:59
wilee-nileeUbnoobtu, Not sure really, never considered it, I do own a business though just not associated with computers.10:59
ikoniaUbnoobtu: does it not strike you as unwise to open a business trying to do something you seem to know nothing about11:00
UbnoobtuOnly if I intented on starting it today.11:01
berryciderspiderHow do I run apache?11:01
ikoniaberryciderspider: have you installed it ?11:01
berryciderspiderikonia: yeah from the lamp-server^ stack11:02
ikoniaberryciderspider: so it should auto start after the install11:02
ikoniaberryciderspider: what makes you think it's not runnin ?11:02
ikoniarunning even11:02
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: that's a terrible idea for a business11:02
dazruanybody can advice a good easy html editor to creat web pages?11:03
berryciderspiderikonia: right, thanks11:03
blazemoreUbnoobtu: if you want to start a business recovering data, why aren't you familiar with data recovery tools?11:03
Ubnoobtuikonia| I'm pretty knowledgable on reparing the hardware, but when it comes to diagnosing software issues, my partner is the expert.11:03
ActionPa1snipdazru: bluefish11:03
MsCourtneyWhere can I learn about Ubuntu? I am a beginner. I want to get used to the terminal commands and such.11:04

VustomI installed FTP on my Ubuntu VPS, when connecting it says ftp server is anonymous only, any ideas?11:04
ikoniaVustom: change the config11:04
mojeimeblazemore: what can i do -.-"?11:04
Vustomto?11:04
ikoniaVustom: you can select real users or ananymous or virtual11:04
berryciderspiderikonia: I'm trying to get drupal working, but i'm not sure how to add the drupal site directory to the (equivalent) host file11:04
ikoniaberryciderspider you don't put a directory in the host file11:04
MsCourtneyikonia: Ok thanks, that was probably a stupid question. Btw the laptop started to work after removing internal batteries.11:05
VustomI just uncommeted local_enable YES but that didn't work11:05
ikoniaVustom: have you restarted the ftp daemon11:05
dazruActionPa1snip: ok thank you. bye bye. p.s. i found the popularity stats: http://popcon.ubuntu.com/11:05
blazemoredazru: fyi those stats are self-selecting opt-in11:05
Ubnoobtublazemore| anyways, its just a hobby now. I'm aspiring to make something out of this eventully.11:06
Vustomwhats the command for that?11:06
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: won't happen11:06
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: and you don't want it to happen, either11:06
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: stay entirely the hell away from data recovery11:06
ikoniaVustom: I'd strongly suggest you read https://help.ubuntu.com and look at the server section to get a grip on the basics11:06
Vustomsudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart?11:06
dazrublazemore: yes but looks like librecad is the most popular cad program.... that's what i wanted to know11:06
ikoniaVustom: you need to know this before you run an ftp server and possibly get explioted11:06
berryciderspiderikonia: I know, but is referencing it the same as it is in windows?11:07
berryciderspiderikonia: and where is the host file?11:07
ikoniaberryciderspider referencing what ?11:07
vltgordonjcp: Why?11:08
ikoniaberryciderspider: sorry, I'm not following what you are saying, what's the actual problem you want to resolve11:08
berryciderspiderikonia:the drupal site directory11:08
vltUbnoobtu: I encourage you to continue. Read a lot, ty a lot.11:08
ikoniaberryciderspider: you don't put the directory in the host file11:08
Ubnoobtugordonjcp| Why? I'm just curious because I had a client that needed our help and we couldn't help him. He was a little old korean drycleaner who never backed up his data, and ended up loosing all o his customers tickets and info.11:08
vltUbnoobtu: Have a look at distros like grml.org11:08
gordonjcpvlt: because out of the huge list of stuff you don't want in your life, the kind of people who use data recovery services are a fat chunk of them11:08
berryciderspiderikonia: I know that. OK how do I get a drupal instance that I have in svn going?11:08
vltgordonjcp: Well yes, I hadn’t seen it that way :-D11:09
Ubnoobtugordonjcp, vlt; WTF! LMFAO, WWWHHYYY?11:09
VustomWhy aren't I able to connect via FTP? It just times out.11:09
ikoniaberryciderspider: you check it out of svn, move it to web root, then configure the database11:09
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: because you will get the person who has washed the USB stick with the only copies of the photos of their daughter's graduation in the pocket of their jeans on a hot wash cycle, lost the stick in the garden when they hung it out to dry, and found it a week later when they mowed the grass11:09
ikoniaVustom: possibly a firewall11:09
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: and somehow it's *your* fault they lost the pictures11:09
ikoniaVustom: or the daemon is not started11:09
Vustomfirewall is off, port 21 is open11:10
blazemoreUbnoobtu: The soft of people who need data recovery are the sort of people who don't back up. You don't want to spend all day dealing with the sort of person who doesn't back up11:10
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: you will get the people who bring in obviously stolen kit that they have "forgotten the password for"11:10
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: masses of them, in face11:10
gordonjcp*fact11:10
berryciderspiderikonia: ah ok cheers.11:10
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: you'll get the local gangsters who want mobile phones unlocked11:10
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: all that crap11:10
gordonjcpyou don't need it11:10
MonkeyDustblazemore  i managed to ruin my backup, by forgetting a trailing slash in a cron task11:10
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: I do a bit of data recovery, and I get that all the time11:11
UbnoobtuThat might not be so bad for me, I need some business, lol. i'm a broke college student trying to get my " husle and grind " on.11:11
vltgordonjcp: Just curious: What tools do you use?11:11
gordonjcpvlt: testdisk, 99% of the time11:11
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: I tend not to get the idiots because I live in a quiet part of rural Scotland, with CCTV and shotguns ;-)11:12
vltgordonjcp: Ok, as I thought ;-)  Do you deal with really broken drives also?11:12
gordonjcpUbnoobtu: you get all kinds of people you don't want showing up to poke around your farm11:12
gordonjcpvlt: not if I can help it11:12
berryciderspiderikonia: is it as simple as "mv svn/site/directory /var/www/" ?11:14
Ubnoobtugordonjcp: I got into this business by installing CCTVs, digtal recorders and all that. I deal with forgeiners mostly, and they are always having hard drive crashes. At the moment, I'm onlly running tests to check if its a hard drive failure, or a platter/motor ailure. And I'm charging them to buy the new HD, and the labour it takes to switch out the platters, then back it up to a HD I have. It's wasteful but they keep BEGGING me fo11:15
wilee-nileeUbnoobtu, As a owner operator business owner a service business carpet & upholstery cleaning I make 100$ per hour, it is a single task, no extras to create chances of complaints, it works beautifully.11:16

wilee-nileekeep it simple is my motto, and be good at what you do.11:17
napscwilee-nilee: i think that should be the linux motto too11:19
UbnoobtuOkay, so data recovery is generally a waste of time unless its for something uniquely special. People will be asking or me to do illegal acts such as rooting their phones, aiding in the theift of computers and etc. Pretty interesting. Makes me think of DREDD, with the nerdy kid working or the mamaw gang.11:20
Ben64Ubnoobtu: labour? switching out platters? something seems wrong here11:20
wilee-nileeheh, yeah, never would have imagined this business I used to be a pro jazz musician and am now in a masters program hoping to get a PhD in the end which may after awhile generate that income per session, I can always clean carpets, lol11:21
Ubnoobtuwilee, you got it happening man.11:21

janne_is there a command for wireless network in ubuntu that i can use to fix my problem?11:50

ActionParsnipdotcom420: lots of time, lots of data12:16
SuperLagActionParsnip: wow... you have to step through each of them?12:16
flipper88_flLong dead at that. Any one know of a reaonably priced VPS provider?12:16
ActionParsnipSuperLag: yes, unless its LTS to LTS, in which case its one jump12:16
SuperLagflipper88_fl: Linonde. Digital Ocean.12:17
SuperLagflipper88_fl: Linode, that is12:17
ActionParsnipdotcom420: could install using USB if your BIOS supports it12:17

rodrigograca31SuperLag: AWS?12:17
ActionParsnipdotcom420: I'd clean install then restore data from backup12:17
ActionParsnipdotcom420: lots cleaner and a LOT quicker12:18
rileypId really like just to fix flash as its not working12:18
SuperLagdotcom420: and if your system is new enough you can boot from a USB stick, you don't need the CD-ROM12:18
SuperLagdotcom420: unetbootin12:18
saiarcot895rileyp: it can apply to future releases as well; just make sure to correct the codenames when using them12:18
rodrigograca31SuperLag: AWS provides you with 1 year free VPS (its not ver good but its no bad)12:18
saiarcot895rileyp: also, if you upgrade, you'll have to go 11.04 to 11.10 and then 11.10 to 12.0412:19
dotcom420Unfortunately my PC don't support USB boot. By the way, i don't care if my configuration is wiped out. Can it i download latest ISO and then directly run it in my current system?12:19
SuperLagrodrigograca31: yeah, I wouldn't put AWS in quite the same category12:19
SuperLagdotcom420: yes, if you don't care about that... then that's exactly what I'd do12:19
dotcom420The current system is installed on /dev/sda7. I don't care if anything happens to that drive.12:20
ubutom_So, anyone know of issues with a recent patch and wake up from standby? BEcause my laptop doesn't wake up anymore since a few days, can then only kill it with the power-button. Version is: 12.04 precise, 3.5.0-37-generic12:20
rileypsaiarcot895 I understand that bit I just dont know how to do it12:20

absencehi, i installed some packages from ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test that i now want to remove. how do i do that?12:20
dotcom420SuperLag: My PC don't support USB booting.12:20
SuperLagrodrigograca31: I have enough storage in my laptop, I do VMs locally. With 3 hard drives (and 1.47TB of usable space) and 32GB of RAM... no need to pay someone else for a VPS. :)12:21
saiarcot895rileyp: open up /etc/apt/sources.list (you'll need sudo permissions, so you might want to do "sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list" in Terminal)12:21
gordonjcpdotcom420: remove the hard drive, fit it to something that does support USB booting, install, swap it back12:21
martin198932 GM RAM??????????????12:21
SuperLagdotcom420: right, but you said you could download the latest CD-ROM and do it that way, didn't you?12:21
martin1989WOW!!!!!!!!!12:22
FloodBot1martin1989: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.12:22
rileypsaiarcot895 I know how to edit files thankfully!12:22
saiarcot895rileyp: then, add the three Required lines that are listed, and change the CODENAME to natty12:22
SuperLagmartin1989: yes, sir. A Lenovo ThinkPad W530 maxes out at 32GB of RAM, and that's what I did. It'll take 3 hard drives, too, if you remove the optical drive.... and I did.12:22
saiarcot895rileyp: if you are using backports or proposed repos as well, you'll need to add lines for these as well12:23
rodrigograca31SuperLag: ups... i thought that you asked about VPS's.... and it was: flipper88_fl12:23
dotcom420gordonjcp: Yes, i was thinking that way too. But if it were possible to install from ISO file, it would have been neat.12:23
rodrigograca31flipper88_fl: AWS?12:23
dotcom420SuperLag: No, i was saying about latest ISO of ubuntu.12:23
dotcom420Not CD-ROM.12:23
saiarcot895rileyp: Slight correction: remove everything in sources.list and have only those three lines there12:23
dotcom420My CD-ROM is broken12:24
Ben64rileyp: just follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades12:24
Topcatgordonjcp & Pici: I've 'fixed' it but I wonder if somoene could explain why? I changed pam_service_name=vsftpd to pam_service_name=ftp12:25
dotcom420Anyway, thanks for the tip.12:25
SuperLagmartin1989: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/5951029/12:25
gordonjcpTopcat: well, PAM is how various services determine how to authorise users12:26
gordonjcpTopcat: so I'm guessing that by default it's not quite set up in the way that PAM expects it to identify itself12:26
saiarcot895rileyp: once that is done, save it and close it.12:27
saiarcot895rileyp: Then, run "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade"12:27
dotcom420Just a last question. My hardware is very old maybe maybe 13 or more! So, after installing ubuntu 13.04, does all of my old hardware work? Have you guys removed something in this update?12:27
rodrigograca31flipper88_fl: ?12:27
flipper88_flwhats up rodrigograca3112:28
dotcom420By the way, ubuntu 11.04 fully supports my old hardware.12:28
rileypsaiarcot895 Is it possible I could just do a manual install of flash player until I'm ready to throw caution to the wind!  The only issue i have with my current system is flash not working12:28
gordonjcpdotcom420: what spec is the machine you're installing on?12:28

rileypsaiarcot895: rileyp: Then, run "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade" i have it all copied into a file for when Im ready to roll I have edited apt sources no problem12:29
SuperLagdotcom420: chances are... newer Ubuntu will support your old hardware too12:29
dotcom420Thanks12:29
SuperLagdotcom420: I'd follow gordonjcp's advice.12:30
SuperLag05:21 < gordonjcp> dotcom420: remove the hard drive, fit it to something that does support USB booting, install, swap it back12:30
dotcom420Yes, good advice. I can do that.12:30
saiarcot895rileyp: you could download the deb binaries for flashplugin-installer from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/flashplugin-nonfree/11.2.202.280ubuntu0.10.04.1 but keep in mind that if you do so, don't expect any support (well, Natty also has no support now)12:31
VustomHow can I give myself access to all files in /usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/separate?12:31
saiarcot895rileyp: you really should upgrade/clean install to 12.04 soon12:32
rodrigograca31flipper88_fl: VPS? do you know about AWS?12:32
dotcom420Currently, i have three operating systems in grub. What is the safest way to touch only /dev/sda7 and then restore the grub?12:32
flipper88_flrileyp: just backup you're important files and fresh install 12.04.2 (Percise)12:33
dotcom420Because i am gonna install ubuntu 13.04 on /dev/sda712:33

rileypben64 i will be doing that12:47
rileypnow to install flash..12:47
Reliantwhat is nouveau?12:47
adamkReliant: The video driver for your GPU.12:47
Reliantahh12:47
ActionParsnipReliant: try blacklisting the nouveau driver12:47
adamkReliant: Or, rather, the default driver for your GPU.  You could also use the nvidia driver, if you wanted.12:47
saleemActionParsnip, i got the display issue on live seesion fixed but in a different way12:47
ActionParsnipsaleem: cool12:47
saleemhad to reinstall nvidia-current and restart lightdm12:48
adamkReliant: If you blacklist nouveau, as ActionParsnip suggests, but do not install the nvidia proprietary driver, you will end up using the Xorg vesa driver, which will be quite slow.12:48
Reliantis all of this doable through the graphical UI?12:49
ReliantI know I saw the app for setting this. Trying to find it on the menu12:49

wilee-nileeguarnier, Anyway that script is key for you to get help, I know nothing about gpt, if you get no help here I would use the ubuntu forums by starting a thread and posting the script info.14:06
guarnierwilee-nilee, kind of. I read that it is better to use gpt and efi so I used it. if I can reach my data and back it up I can also reinstall everything, but I still don t get how a simple update brakes the entire boot14:06
universalguarnier: is there any considerable performance gain over hdd ? I'm thinking for a SSD too but doubt its cost to performance gains ratio...also I heard that there are privacy issues in respect of deleteing of files....like shred don't work effectively and deleted files can be recovered easily14:06
geopsychicLEAVE14:07
wilee-nileeguarnier, Well ubuntu does not really use gpt in general except in response to the new fast boot windows 8 release and apple dual booting, so it is a bit of a conundrum.14:08
rileypuniversal: ssd is way faster14:08
guarnieruniversal, performance gain A LOT. for techinical things, I have no idea. the only thing is to check that your motherboard supports the SSD speed14:08

willybilly0101it was obvious he didn't visudo. with visudo you can't mess it because it has syntax checking14:42

anddamit appended the groups, I just checked "id foo"15:05
blazemoreYes don't do that if the user "foo" already exists15:05
Flannelblazemore, anddam: Second, adduser is much more userfriendly and is what you want.  `adduser user group`  is the correct syntax.15:05
Flannelblazemore: NO15:05
anddamFlannel: oh you meant what blazemore suggested, I've already gone with "adduser user group"15:05
Flannelblazemore: That's not the correct reason why you don't do it.  You want -G group -a15:05
blazemoreOK thanks Flannel15:06
Flannelanddam: right.  I'm trying to make sure you don't have to spend 10 minutes fixing your user.15:06
Flannelanddam: And, in Ubuntu, the group you want to add is "admin"15:06

thunder-stormAccording to my question to conky and the tcp_portmon variables, the tcp_portmon variables will slow down the update frequency from conky - a lot... The problem is based with OUTGOING tcp connections ONLY - i mean, it's resulting with slow DNS-lookups (netstat produces the same slow output). What can be the reason for that? I remember, i have put two clients in my /etc/hosts - hypothetical, if they are unreachable, this can be slow down 17:55
saiarcot895thunder-storm: the slow DNS lookups are either because of your network connection or the DNS servers you are using17:56

ActionParsnipNerder : backtrack is not only EOL on the desktop but backtrack is not supported in any of the Ubuntu support channels18:27
nerderActionParsnip, ook i could try in #backtrack  ;)18:27
nerdersorry if i ask18:27

ActionParsnipNerder : It's cool18:28
nerderActionParsnip, thx man! ;)18:28
quadHelixActionparsnip: sadly I can only find the source for 3.4.1 and I wanted to use the new tiles available from that rev18:28

UbnoobtuIkonia, how can I use unbuntu to do it cleanly.18:29

ActionParsnipUbnoobtu : is it compatible with unetbootin?  I suggest you check the creator website for how to guides18:32

Ubnoobtuikonia, thanks for the help, I can guess I've been irritating you my noob questions.18:34

Ubnoobtubut youve been helpful, so thanks.18:35

_DByes, not sure what they are called18:35
_DB so I can run a localhost?18:35
ikonia_DB: what do you want to do ?18:35
ikonia_DB: what's the end goal, lets see if we can figure out what you want18:35

ActionParsnipUbnoobtu : did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?18:36
ikonia_DB: ok, so there is no "admin" server needed, just install mysql/php/apache (google ubuntu lamp)18:36
ikonia_DB: did you mean "web server" ?18:36
t-ubuntupranjal710, hi18:36
pranjal710t-ubuntu: Hi18:37
jhutchinsI think _DB is after a GUI management tool like phpMyAdmin, which is really just a set of PHP scripts for Apache.18:37
t-ubuntuhello18:37
t-ubuntujoin #windows18:37
ikoniajhutchins well, lets find out when he responds.18:37
pranjal710I am trying to run a shell script, but I am getting the following error:  spawn: not found18:37
t-ubuntujoin #windows18:37
ActionParsnipIkonia: probably something like phpmyadmin18:37
_DByeah I used to use Xampp on Ubuntu18:37
jhutchins_DB: They're right though, you don't need it for basic setup of a LAMP site.18:37
ikoniapranjal710: that command is not on your system18:37
ikonia_DB: very strongly advise you not to use xampp18:37
pranjal710ikonia: so, how do I get it?18:38
jhutchins_DB: There should be a README with whatever PHP CM you're using that gives you the basic steps to initialize the database.18:38
ikoniapranjal710: you find a package that contains it or the function in the script18:38
pranjal710ikonia: any leads?18:38
ActionParsnipPranjal710 : run it on it's own and you will be told18:38
ikoniapranjal710: no18:38
_DBI went to apachefriends.org which is where I usually go to download Xampp for linux18:38
ikonia_DB: again, strongly advise against xampp18:38
_DBbut it came in a. run file which I cant seem to open even when I download the software for it18:38
ikonia_DB: download the softawre for it ?? it's a binary file, you just execute it18:39
_DBwhat would you recommend ?18:39
ikonia_DB: but a final warning against using xammp18:39
jhutchins_DB: We're trying to tell you DON'T DO THAT.18:39
ikonia!lamp | _DB18:39
ubottu_DB: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.18:39
ActionParsnip_db: you don't open it. You run it. It's a linux binary18:39
jhutchins_DB: You want to do your best to avoid software that isn't manged by apt/dpkg.18:40
_DBohh I see, since when has it been like that? before I used to get a .tar file18:40
_DBand it would give me a folder to put in the root18:40
ActionParsnip_db: there are metapackages in the repo so I have no idea why you need any 3rd party files18:40
ajplooking for some guidance. So I have this bash script that monitors a folder for PDFs and shrinks them when there is a new one. It works by itself and is great but when I reboot, my upstart script that initiates it is malfunctioning in some way. upstart script: http://pastebin.com/uiXkd90118:41

ubottuajp, please see my private message18:42
ActionParsnip_db: you are talking about a 3rd party so you would have to ask them "since when". Its some unofficial blob you have found.  We don't know about every single script available18:42
jhutchinsajp: What do you use to shrink them?18:42
ajpjhutchins: ghost script18:42

ActionParsnipAjp: then tell whatever is making them to compress the file as soon as it is made18:46
ajpActionParsnip: doesn't cron use a lot of resources if it checks more frequently?18:47

tgm4883SachinIsGreat, yes, as secure as any other OS19:01

pvl1ajp ActionParsnip why is there a need for a reboot19:08
ajpActionParsnip:so I added "/home/matthew/scripts/MonitorScannedPDFsMatthew.sh &" to rc.local19:08
ajppvl1: I was asking19:08
ActionParsnipPvl1: never said there was. Its useful as a full test though19:08
Guest17612hey friends19:09
pvl1ActionParsnip: do you mean the ampersand is usefull?19:09

pvl1or whatever the variable is called19:09
Guest17612does anyone know a good CPU overclocking app for Ubuntu?19:09
ActionParsnipAjp: the .sh isn't needed you know. You could call it .png and it'd work the same19:09
pvl1Guest17612: thats not a good idea19:09
ajppvl1: it's a headless business server. I need to wait until after hours to reboot19:09
Guest17612pvl1, why?19:10
ajpor relog19:10
pvl1ajp: no need still. you didnt add it to your path19:10
ajpwut?19:10
pvl1Guest17612: because you can damage your cpu19:10

pvl1ajp, youve added it to rc.local, and have you updated the permissions on your script19:11
ActionParsnipPvl1 : tests it works as expected19:11
gordonjcpGuest17612: it's not worth it19:11
gordonjcpGuest17612: back in the early days it was worth trying to overclock your 25MHz CPU to maybe 30MHz19:12
ajppvl1: yes. how would I test besides reboot?19:12
ActionParsnipGuest17612: use your bios then. Ask in ##hardware19:12
Guest17612maybe, but I want to try it out19:12
gordonjcpGuest17612: now you can't really squeeze much more out of the CPU19:12
pvl1ajp: now your asking the right question :)19:12

Guest17612i'm going to get one, just going to test out on stock first19:14
pvl1ajp: running the script is the only test you need19:14
ActionParsnipAjp: then use screen and run rc.local then disconnect the screen so the things ran keep going19:14
ajpok running /etc/rc.local gets it going I can see it watching the folder19:14
pvl1Guest17612: and then do u have moeny to replace the new amd cpu u will probably melt by doing this with stock equip19:14
Guest17612can you just tell me the apps on how to achieve overclocking on Ubuntu, thanks19:14
pvl1ajp: awesome19:15
pvl1Guest17612: its not an app, the bios is what really controls that. there are certain layers to an onion19:15
ajpcan I just use "sudo /etc/rc.local &"19:15
pvl1ajp: to test?19:15
Guest17612pvl1, in Windows you can just use apps to overclock, bios is just software too19:16

pvl1Guest17612: and thats part of the reason why the security world uses *nix derivs and not windows19:18
Guest17612?19:19
ajpGuest17612: BIOS is firmware not software19:19
pvl1ajp: long as your script has correct perm, and no errors yes. HOWEVER i suggest you make your script exit 0, meaning if there are any indefinite loops, start another script19:19
pvl1ajp: it says so in the rc.local file to do so19:19
pvl1ajp: and good call, it is indeed firmware19:19
