tigrangI have an atheros wifi card. With kernel 3.2 my connection is stable, I restart to latest 3.11 and my connection fails to connect or its very unstable. I was reading a bug report that said it was fixed in RC4, but I'm still having issues with it. Anyone else experiencing this or any suggestions? Thank you00:02
TJ-tigrang: Which kernel module drives the hardware? Is it a mainline module, or added via DKMS or some other out-of-tree mechanism?00:03
OerHekstigrang, "latest 3.11" ? how did you install that kernel, raring is @ 3.8.0-2700:03
tigrangTJ-: ath9k00:03

jrib!iptables | GeekDude00:05
ubottuGeekDude: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as Gufw also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo00:05
jribGeekDude: you can read the iptables page on the wiki if you want to store and restore your iptables rules00:06
TJ-GeekDude: You will need to use iptables-save or some other firewall mechanism (such as UFW or Shorewall) to save and restore rules at shutdown/startup00:06
GeekDudeI tried iptables-save, but it didn't seem to help00:06
jribGeekDude: read the wki00:06
jribwiki even00:06
rypervencheGeekDude: YOu need to install iptables-persistent00:07
TJ-GeekDude: If you use iptables-save, then there needs to be a script at start-up that runs iptables-restore00:07

wiakhow do i completly disable notify osd?00:31
wiaki cant remove the package as its needed by ubuntu-desktop and gnome-power-manger :O00:31
Dr_Williswiak:  ubuntu-desktop is just a meta-package00:32
Dr_Willisno idea what gnome-power manager does. ;)00:32
wiakDr_Willis, its a battery power config app i think00:33
wiakit basicly makes laptop sleep when lid is closed00:33
Dr_Williswiak:  why do you want to disable it? theres a 3rd party 'configurable' osd -> http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/configurable-notifyosd-updated-for.html00:33
wiakDr_Willis,  well when i use fn + volume keys my whole system stops taking keyboard/mouse commands00:34
wiakand i think its related to osd etc, as its buggy00:34
wiakwhen i take one press to turn up volume it will go to 100%..00:35
Dr_Willispkill notify-osd         perhaps and see if that kills it.00:35
Dr_Willisand see if the issue still happens?00:35
Dr_Willisactually notify-osd may restart..00:35
trismwiak: you can install notification-daemon and then you can remove notify-osd00:36
trismwiak: notification-daemon won't start automatically in unity00:36
wiaki dont need any notify so i want to remove them compleley00:37
Dr_Willissomthing seems weird with that last URL.. im not sure the guy is correct in his assumptions. ;)00:37
Dr_Willishe just purages the notifyosd package basically ;)00:38
trismyeah he isn't, dbus will restart notify-osd, and that isn't even the correct package name00:38
trismwiak: yes, but you can't without removing other things00:38
Dr_Willistrism:  yea. :) i wasent sure which guide was correct and which was wrong00:38

wiakif your sudoesrs file are messed do this, reboot into recovery and go to root and then mount -o rw,remount / and then pico /etc/sudoers01:04
Dr_WillisEl_Presidente:  you may not need the cache to be max. but it to start AFTER its cached a lot.. of cours it could be some quirk with the stream also.01:04

reisiojc_: but probably: %users ALL = NOPASSWD:/sbin/shutdown01:05
jc_reisio: thanks I'll try it01:05
Dr_Willisjc_:  one 'dirty' way to do it - is set the suid bit on the shutdown command. ;)01:05

Dr_Willisjc_:  find the default sudoers file and replace it.01:08
TJ-jc_: boot to recovery (which gives you a root terminal) and fix it, or boot from an external device (USB, DVD) and fix it from there01:08

LlucidI wish to open /File System/ through sudo01:11
Dr_Willisopen it in what program?01:12
LlucidProgram? I have been told the line before, Something alike "sudo ts___"01:12
Dr_Willisyou can access a directory in nautilus as root via  'gksudo nautilus /path/to/location' but its NOT a good habbit to run nautilus as root01:12
Dr_WillisI got no idea what you mean by 'ts*'  opening a 'filesystem' is a little vague.. accessing a DIRECTORY is  done as above01:13
TJ-jc_: To get the original /etc/sudoers file, if you don't have sudo access to reinstall the package ("sudo apt-get --reinstall install sudo") then grab the source: "cd /tmp; apt-get source sudo; less sudo-1.8.8p3/debian/sudoers;"01:13
TJ-Llucid: I believe what you mean to say is, you wish to 'mount' a file-system ?01:14

jribjc_: also make sure you use "visudo" to edit the sudoers file from now on01:14
LlucidSorry to say File System, Mistake.01:14

James_Eppabaddon: Thunar02:04
TJ-James_Epp: That'll be endless. The "true" is supposed to represent some test that will at some point become "false" and end the loop and script02:04

abaddonJames_Epp,  I should add that it has to be nearly independant in operation. ie, not reliant on kde, gnome, unity, etc02:05

TJ-James_Epp: Well no, the $(...) is the shell's way of allowing you to run a sub-shell process and replace then call with whatever the sub-shell wrote to STDOUT02:22
James_EppTJ-: Let's just say this is the most "advanced" bash script I've ever done. Even then, I used a GUI for cron and grsync to get out the rsync script :))02:24
TJ-James_Epp: we all start somewhere. I often know bash can do things but can't remember how so return to that advanced scripting guide02:25

=== IdleOne is now known as frenocha

TJ-aneks: Yes, but they're separate devices ... the problem you describe is more likely to be caused when the *scanner* is switched on ... since SANE will be trying to talk to it via the drivers02:40
ChrisMaQbut thats a temp fix .. i will have to restat the service to get control of my sound drivers afterwards right?02:40

R-800Hi, all. Trying out Ubuntu again after being away a while.  Never got very proficient with it.  Now I have a new challenge: Trying to install it on a system without internet access.  I have another computer that can get online (obviously?) but that doesn't seem terribly helpful yet.  Did some research, but feeling overwhelmed.05:35
Ben64R-800: the installer works the same if connected or not, whats the problem?05:36
reisioR-800: why can't you get access?05:37
=== Andres_SM is now known as AndresSM
Dr_Willisits nice to have the internet connected - so the installer can get the extra codecs/packages and updates at install time. but its not required05:38
R-800reisio: Well, the access issue isn't a troubleshooting issue.  Let's just say, it's not going to have access, and it's out of my hands.  Nothing is broken as far as that goes.  It's just a limitation I am forced to deal with (I'm setting this up for someone else).05:38
chamunksI'm getting ERROR: Bad port '25510-25530'  for ufw allow proto tcp from port 25510-2553005:38
chamunksany ideas?05:39
reisioR-800: mmm, k05:39
reisioR-800: so it won't have access after you hand it off?05:39
reisioR-800: or you don't want it to ever have access?05:39
R-800reisio: It's out of my hands.  That means it doesn't matter what I want.05:39
reisioI don't understand :p05:39
reisiosomeone has a gun to your head?05:39
reisioshould I call the cops?05:39
Dr_WillisR-800:  so install it.. and hand it off.. there ya go.05:40
Dr_WillisR-800:  internet is not needed for a normal desktop install. but it is nice.05:40
reisioif I _should_ call the cops, say "it's out of my hands"05:40
R-800Dr_Willis: That was already done.  I suppose I could leave it at that.05:40
wind3xDr_Willis: If you think there is an error loading from the DVD, is there a way I can use a portable HD instead?05:40
Dr_WillisR-800:  so.. we have no idea what your real question is..05:40
Dr_Williswind3x:  you can setup grub2 on a usb hd/flash to boot the iso. or image the iso to a usb. (or hd, but that would be weird)05:41
Dr_Williswind3x:  or use a tool from the pendrivelinux site to make a live-usb installer on the hd.05:41
Dr_Willisi even have a thing for my android phone (rooted) that lets my Phone boot the pc with an iso file on the phone. ;P05:41

=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
R-800Dr_Willis: Understood.  My real question pertains to certain issues with the install, probably minor, but which would be resolved by now if the system in question had internet access.  So now I'm looking for ways to get the needed downloads from the computer which does have access.  In trying to research this, I got to feeling like it's perhaps not as straightforward as I hoped it would be.05:42
Dr_Williswind3x:  or do an install TO a small usb flash drive from a differnt pc.. and image it to your system :)05:42
ubottuAPTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers - See also !offline05:43
wind3xAre you sure that would fix the problem though? I mean I tried installing two different versions to DVD and the both had the same issue, its very strange05:43
Dr_Williswind3x:  your issue seems to be either reading of the cd. or the image on the cd.  Id try making a bootable usb from a known good image.05:43
Dr_Willisa space pc on the same network - opens up the possibility of having a network-boot setup also. ;) or you could try the minimal installer it downloads everything from the internet i belive05:44

Dr_WillisR-800:  dont get me started on 'dvd movie playback' :) i have 'legal' dvd's that i cant play in a totally 'legal' dvd player (the wifes old sony) due to 'legal' extra copy protection the companies have put on the disks..05:53

iceroot_crazyhorse: the backup itself is using encryption, no need for truecrypt09:50

=== vincent is now known as Guest63989
blazemorecrazyhorse: I'd still recommend using Truecrypt because then it'll be easier to restore09:52

crazyhorseand a weekly backup that i use with an offsite drive i bring in09:56
iceroot_crazyhorse: not by default09:56
iceroot_crazyhorse: it will always create the delta for your last backup, you cant use 2 different deltas09:57
iceroot_crazyhorse: you have to run duplicity twice with different options09:57
crazyhorselets say for example i have Computer A backing up to HDD1..  if i then plug in HDD2 and then do another backup09:57
crazyhorsepresumably it will run again09:57
iceroot_crazyhorse: in deja-dup you have to change the target directory, so that you are working on 2 directories (you have ti change it everytime you want a different backup (dayly or weekly)09:58
crazyhorseyeah ok09:58
crazyhorseor maybe have the daily one setup through the UI09:58
iceroot_crazyhorse: it will run again with the delta for the last backup it will found, so when you switch the hdd it will work09:58

crazyhorseActionPa1snip: ok, so in general, peformance etc should be good10:08
crazyhorseand i shouldn't have any major issues?10:08
ActionPa1snipcrazyhorse: well, no. MacOS is designed specifically to run specifically on that hardware10:08
crazyhorseright, so there are some performance issues?10:08
crazyhorseor battery or what?10:08
ActionPa1snipcrazyhorse: so no OS wil lrun as well as MacOS will run as well as the OS is specifically tailored. The Apple OS is designed and tweaked to run on your overproced Apple hardware10:09
crazyhorsei didn't ask will it run as well as10:09
ActionPa1snipcrazyhorse: it wont perform as well10:10
crazyhorsefor example a while back windows performance on the mac was awful, and you'd only get an hour or so of battery life out of it10:10
ActionPa1snipcrazyhorse: it will probably work well.10:10
crazyhorseok cool10:10

ubottuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and 12.04) as aptitude cannot  handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.12:37

TJ-Capprentice: Yes; is this what you're wanting? http://unity3d.com/unity/multiplatform/13:06
wasanzywhat could be wrong?13:06
ikoniawasanzy: normally a failure / corruption in the file system drops it into read-only mode13:06
TJ-wasanzy: Likely that the file-system itself has been mounted read-only due to a problem. Check "mount | grep home"13:07
wasanzyTJ:, no output13:07
wasanzyikonia: then wat can I do?13:08
TJ-wasanzy: OK, so /home is in the rootfs then. So "mount | grep ' / '  "13:08
CapprenticeTJ- Yep that is the thing :D13:08
ikoniawasanzy: chances are if you reboot, it will do an fsck on reboot (take some time) and fix itself13:08

Guest10124Vanilla] Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is a good version of Ubuntu, but it needs a lot of horsepower, that is not available in aging computers.13:22
Guest10124But the computer would do well with 12.04 and a lighter desktop environment. I suggest that you download the iso files and test them from a CD or USB drive (boot a live session without installing it). And when you see how it works, decide what to install.13:22

soman1Xubuntu 12.04 Elements of the panel (time, language and fast launch) are not displayed. Is any ways to fix it?13:25
TJ-neko: I suspect what you need to do is remount the file-system with "data=writeback" option *only whilst deleting* to prevent the use of the journal log. Make sure the PC is protected by a UPS or battery first though, since if power goes out it could make a serious mess of the file-system.13:25

nekoi have no physical access to it13:26

santanudoes anyone here with some network-configuration knowledge?13:27
santanuI can't bring up my eth0 (or eth1)13:28

TJ-santanu: To ensure NIC interfaces get the same name, udev keeps a note of the first time an  NIC is seen and associated a name to its MAC address. It keeps that info in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. My bet is that the Intel interfaces are there but with higher numbers. If you want to get the original interface numbers you'll need to either edit that file, or delete the custom lines in it, and let udev rediscover the new interfaces and assign numbers f13:41

mohitSappreciate any help13:42
blazemorethe power button as in... the button that turns on/off the PC, mohitS ?13:42
TJ-santanu: So delete/comment out all the existing rules in there and try again. You should be able to unload the e1000e module, restart udev, and reload e1000e13:42
blazemoreThat button is special t's not like a keyboard button13:42
santanuTJ- : If I reboot the machine with 70-persistent-net.rules removed, it doesn't cretae the file autometically13:42
blazemoreIt sends some sort of ACPI command13:42
mohitSon pressing which you get the options (reboot/shutodn/restart/suspend/cancel)13:42
mohitS@blazemore In any way can we simulate the same things using terminal13:43
TJ-santanu: You should only need to comment out/delete the custom rules. I would have thought though that udev just recreates that file if it is missing.13:43
blazemoremohitS: yes, the "reboot" and "shutdown" commands13:43
TJ-santanu: When you run "ifconfig | grep eth" what do you get?13:43

karihello again. i have new information :). if i press main switch to power off it works (i think even too fast almost like "init 0") but i choose power off button from menu it will hang. Does that help anybody to solve this?13:47
santanuTJ- : I don't see that in my dmesg at all13:48
santanuTJ- : what am I missing?13:48
ActionPa1snipkari: try:  sudo shutdown -h now    to shutdown13:48
TJ-santanu: Well, your module is e1000e not e1000 so you might need to adjust the regular expression13:49
philinuxmeowsus: look in the xorg log files in your home13:49
mohitS@kari: init 0, shutdown -h now, shutdown -h 0, poweroff are almost used for same purpose, with some diff of what steps they take to poweroff your sys13:49
meowsusphilinux: Word, checking...13:49
kariActionPa1snip, i tried that already and it hangs. /etc/default/halt has HALT=poweroff line...13:49
santanuTJ- : I simply tried "dmesg | grep -i e1000" - that should catch the rest13:50
philinuxmeowsus: I meant xsession errors soz13:50
TJ-santanu: Well then I'd read dmesg/kern.log line-by-line to ensure the driver is loading!13:51
santanuTJ- :  I also get "missing $INTERFACE" if I try: "/lib/udev/write_net_rules all_interfaces"13:51
kariActionPa1snip,  only way to shutdown computer is to press now straight that power switch. it doesn't even wait that splash screen :D its fast!!13:51
TJ-santanu: You set INTERFACE before calling it I assume?13:51
kariActionPa1snip, and i think it will harm my hdd if it does it like that13:51
ActionPa1snipkari: how? its a graceful shutdown...13:51
santanuTJ- : what about "lsmod"? It lists the module there13:52
TJ-santanu: Does it report e1000e ?13:52
kanylWhat's a good place to put stuff that shared between users? Putting something in my home and chmodding it seems ugly, is there a standard path where shared files usually go?13:52
kariActionPa1snip,  i don't know. i have acpi disabled from bios (because it doesn't work so well my computer starts to lag with it)13:52
meowsusphilinux: Sweet, thanks man. I'm seeing some stuff in here, for sure!13:52
mohitS@kari init 0 is the exactly the same, the way you select shutdown from the gear icon13:53
TJ-santanu: Thing is, the module will report what it is doing and that should be in the system logs. If it isn't then either the syslog daemon is faulty or else the module is stuck.13:53
santanuTJ- : I did "modprobe e1000e" first13:53
karimohitS,  ok...hmmm13:53
philinuxmeowsus: I also check /var/log/xorg.0/13:53
philinuxmeowsus: I also check /var/log/xorg.0.log13:54
karimohitS, well can we look to some log file or? to figure this out...i don't like to guess :)13:54
DanDuncombeI ran the command:    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade     and now the mouse won't move. I am using the latest Kubuntu. Help?13:54
mohitS@kari you can have a look at kernel logs in /var/log/kern.log13:55
TJ-santanu: Which version of Ubuntu is this on? It may be the module doesn't have an alias for your device13:55
santanuTJ- : 12.0413:55
mustmodify_I have grepped a log for a username. Now I want to say "now get rid of \n\nProcessing and all lines that follow it up to but excluding \n---" ... any thoughts?13:56
TJ-santanu: Hmmm, this might be the issue. Try this: "sudo lspci -nnvv -d 8086:153b" and tell us what the kernel driver lines show13:56
mohitSthere you can check where your system is getting problem, or just enable kernel logs by doing echo 10 > /proc/sys/kernel/printk13:56
TJ-santanu: Then check if the kernel module has the alias by doing "modinfo e1000e | grep -i 153B"13:56

TJ-santanu: On 12.04 you can install a backported (newer) kernel to get the hardware driver support you need without a full release upgrade. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Release/Rolling13:59
santanuTJ- : "modinfo e1000e | grep -i 153B" doesn't return anything at all. "modinfo e1000e" does a lot though14:00
kari12 13:57:52 ubuntu kernel: [    0.000000] ACPI Error: A valid RSDP was not found (20110623/tbxfroot-219)14:00
TJ-santanu: If you get nothing from the grep then that answers your issue. The 12.04 kernel doesn't have support for the hardware in the e1000e driver. So you need to install a more recent kernel. See that link I just posted for how to go about that14:01

TJ-santanu: If the OS has some other form of networking you can do a simple "sudo apt-get install linux-current-$FLAVOUR"; otherwise, you'll need to manually download the correct .deb packages from the archive using a networked PC and copy them over using a USB stick and then use "sudo dpkg -i ..." to install them14:02

counterglitchhey everyone I'm having a problem with Steam on raring. Installed from steampowered.com and launched, updated. The initial screen appears where it asks me to login or create an account, but I can't click anything15:42
napscSo, I've never messed with my the default log rotation scheme.  I would like to change my syslog rotation to weekly and retain 8 weeks of logs.  After researching, my head is spinning so i wanted to verify with people who might be more familiar with the way logrotate is broken up... I need to change /etc/logrotate.d/rsyslog file and change the /var/log/syslog section to weekly rotate 8, correct?15:42
ActionPa1snipcounterglitch: tried running a no compiziting session?15:43
counterglitchActionPalsnip: thanks for the tip15:43

ch4k3rno, actionpa1snip15:50
ActionPa1snipch4k3r: then run:  gksud ogedit /etc/rc.local and add the command above the 'exit 0' line15:51
ch4k3rI want this script: /home/chaker/Desktop/defense.sh to execute at startup with sudo.15:51
ActionPa1snipch4k3r: you will need to use absolute referencing15:51
ActionPa1snipch4k3r: add an ampersand to the end of the line, so it will be:   /home/chaker/Desktop/defense.sh &15:51
ch4k3rI just add /home/chaker/Desktop/defense.sh at /etc/rc.local15:52

ActionPa1snipch4k3r: if you add them above, they wil be ran as root15:55
ActionPa1snipch4k3r: you add the ampersand so that they get bckgrounded and do not hang the boot if they go awry15:55

counterglitchActionPa1snip is there a way to disable compositing for just a single process (like the steam window) or does compositing not work like that16:00
ch4k3ractionpa1snip, like this? http://paste.ubuntu.com/5977796/16:00
someGuestSorry, accidentally pressed Enter. Anyhow, I'm confused as there are 12.04.2 x64 versions of Ubuntu that ship with the new kernel. So, what does all this mean?16:00

xintronI'm currently dividing my disk for a linux + windows 8 setup but I'm not sure what partitions win8 will need. EFI is created but am I best of leaving the space for windows after the EFI and then create my linux partition at the end of the disk (leaving unallocated space between EFI -> Linux)?16:27

R-800Hello, everyone.  I'm trying to download VLC media player for Ubuntu from a Windows machine so that it can be installed remotely. (the Ubuntu machine has no internet connection).  At first it was surprisingly hard just to find a non-windows version for download.  Finally found one, but it has a link I must use to start the download that won't work from Firefox in Windows.  How can I get this...16:47
R-800...download going?16:47
reisioR-800: packages.ubuntu.com16:48
reisionow, were you the guy who wouldn't say why he can't use a network?16:48
SlartR-800: there used to be a "create a wget script to download stuff from an offline computer and then run it on any windows computer"-application somewhere.. not sure if it's still around though16:49
* Confused_guy would like to interject for a moment and contemplate about something rather bizarre.16:49
* Confused_guy noticed that MOST of the laptops in his local computer store had SSD drives.16:50
* Confused_guy just found out that the TRIM function is NOT enabled by default in Ubuntu 13.04.16:50
* Confused_guy is confused.16:50

Confused_guyBut I'm still rather confused about that....16:51
daftykinsTRIM is part of the ATA spec, if it has been implemented in the Linux kernel it'll be there16:51
ikoniaConfused_guy: just ask a clear question, and people will try to help/explain16:51
daftykinsif manual setup is required, google it. i doubt it'll be hard16:51
x_what is TRIM function?16:51
ikoniaConfused_guy: it can get a bit lost with /me commands16:51
ActionPa1snipx_: its for SSDs16:51
daftykinsx_: SSD maintenance16:51
R-800Slart: Do you think something like Keryx might help with this?16:51
Confused_guyI was just wondering why the TRIM command isn't enabled by default. :\16:51
ikoniaConfused_guy: what makes you think it's not enabled ?16:52
x_maybe it's not enabled because most don't use ssd's?16:52
Confused_guyikonia: because I found tutorials for 13.04 telling people how to enable it.16:52
x_though i guess it wouldn't do anything to regular hdd's16:52
Confused_guyikonia: How can I check whether or not it is enabled?16:53
SlartR-800: no idea, never used (or even heard of keryx) but it sounds like a nice idea16:53
ikoniaConfused_guy: you have to tell machine you're using an SSD, it's not disabled16:53
ikoniaConfused_guy: you change the mount options in /etc/fstab to confirm the correct settings, then it's done16:53
joe1Hey quick question what should i google for i have an issue with a grey chunk on the left of my screen then the right side is the desktop16:53
ikoniaConfused_guy: (basically anyway)16:53
SlartR-800: the package-download script thing I was talking about was a part of synaptic.. the old default package manager before software center16:53
Confused_guyikonia: This guide right here tells me that using /etc/fstab for TRIM may not be a good idea: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/ssd#TOC-Automatic-TRIM:-by-rc.local-by-cron-or-by-discard16:54
R-800Slart: Right.  Okay.16:54

R-800reisio: I followed a download link for VLC on packages.ubuntu.com that downloaded a 43k file, seemingly too small to be anything but a startup file for some kind of download manager, which isn't what I need.  Did I click the wrong thing?16:56
ActionPa1snipjoe1: so to 'check' you have to remember if you installed it16:56
Confused_guyThanks for the help guys.16:56
joe1ok so im not i checked in terminal and it said its not intalled16:56
ActionPa1snipjoe1: what, exactly, were you going to 'check' with/at/on/in?16:56
SlartR-800: synaptic is still available from the regular ubuntu repos, it's just not installed by default.. if you install it there is an option in the File menu to "generate package download script", put the resulting file on a usb-stick together with the wget application and it will download the packages you need to the usb stick (or that's the theory at least)16:56
joe1i just typed the name of the program to see if it was installed16:57
ActionPa1snipjoe1: is this an upgrade from a previous release or is it a clean install?16:57
reisioR-800: well, it doesn't handle deps for you16:57

ActionPa1snipjoe1: get fully updated and then worry16:58
ActionPa1snipjoe1: updates may fix it16:58
R-800Slart: Interesting.  I see.  I used to use Synaptic a long time ago, and wouldn't mind seeing it again.  But my headache is installing programs at all, as they must be acquired initially on a Windows machine and then transferred to a Ubuntu one.  I'm having a lot of trouble.16:58
joe1got it ill stick around will stick around untill update are done incase i can help anybodey16:58
SlartR-800: that's what the script is for.. you run the download script on another machine and it downloads the packages it needs to the usb stick.. you then use that on the offline ubuntu machine.. it's like a network proxy.. albeit a slow and possible sweat-inducing one =)16:59
R-800reisio: Okay.16:59
reisioyou could always boot a live copy of Ubuntu on the networked machine and fetch from there17:00
reisioor... just network the box you're installing to already17:00
R-800Slart: I understand that, and I think that is absolutely awesome.  But as you pointed out, Synaptic doesn't come with Ubuntu by default anymore, and it's Synaptic that generates the script that makes this transfer to the USB stick possible.  That means I have to get Synaptic onto the Ubuntu machine somehow, as the first step, without benefit of the script generating trick.17:01
matthias_hello, i've got a problem with my ubuntu ltsp server17:01
SlartR-800: packages.ubuntu.com should take care of that.. I don't think synaptic has a lot, if any, dependencies.. but you will be doing a lot of walking back and forth between the two computers with any solution17:01
joe1R-800 you should be able to sudo apt-get install synaptic17:02
SlartR-800: You might want to check if it's possible to download the most common packages onto a usb-stick or dvd.. like the old big install dvd's and use that as a package source17:02
R-800Slart: Understood, and granted.  And yes, the fewer dependencies, the less of a headache it will be.  And thankfully, there won't be that much walking, as one of them is a laptop.  : )17:02
TJ-R-800: There's a little 'trick' to help you. Install the same Ubuntu into a virtual machine on the Windows host, then once it's fetched the files you need, copy them to your USB storage from "/var/cache/apt/archives/" and put them in that same location on the target Ubuntu.17:02
ActionPa1snipTJ-: done that before, or use liveCD, mount the internal partition and copy the deb files over :)17:03
R-800TJ: Interesting.17:03
ActionPa1snipR-800: ^17:03
TJ-ActionPa1snip: Yeah, it can be useful even on another Linux host with chroot, if you have one without connectivity17:03
matthias_my fat-clients shows only the busybox up. i configured a proxy-dhcp with dnsmasq and it worked with thin clients very well but not with fat clients. it show the error socket failed connection refused when i hit f6 while the ubunt logo is loading17:04
TJ-ActionPa1snip: R-800: Also, in the past, I've taken the hard drive out of the target, plugged it into a networked host, configured a virtual machine on the host to use that hard drive, and then just done a regular update since the VM has network17:05
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: do you see them requesting things in the logs17:05
matthias_ActionPa1snip: which logs?17:05
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: for the services, on the server side17:06
SlartR-800: this looks like another way of doing things.. http://www.howtoforge.com/dvd_images_of_ubuntu_repositories17:06
SlartR-800: it seems simpler to do it with a usb-stick though.. dvd's are so last decade =)17:06

ActionPa1snipmatthias_: if not then check the client17:10
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: if they are, what responce do they get? What does it mean? Does the client get the responce?17:10
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: is there logging on the clients?17:10
matthias_ActionPa1snip: no the clients cant log because they don't start up, they only show the busybox17:11
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: then basic stuff like pinging IPs and making sure interfaces have drivers and IPs and default gateways and so forth17:11
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: then its nothing to do with the server side yet, you need to get the clients up and running]17:12
ActionPa1snipmatthias_: but its that sort of stuff you need to be looking at, just on the clients, all logs and such17:12
matthias_ActionPa1snip: there all drivers every interface is working, because it worked without the dnsmasq and as thin client config, but not in the fat client modus17:13

R-800Sorry for being repetitive, guys, and ignorant, and thick in the head, but I have to ask this again.  And I must apologize for being so clueless, as it makes it hard to even know what question to even ask. Here's by best effort at asking anyway:17:27
R-800I'd like to download VLC media player for Ubuntu 12.04, as completely as possible (meaning all dependencies included) via a Windows machine, so that I can sneakernet it to a Ubuntu machine without internet. How can I proceed?.17:28
CyracHow do i fiund out what version of ubuntu i use on ubuntu?17:28
iceroot_!offline | R-80017:28
ubottuR-800: If you need to download Ubuntu packages using another machine or OS, check the desired packages in Synaptic and select File > Generate package download script. Alternatively, try http://ubottu.com/ljl/apt/ - See also !APTonCD17:28
iceroot_Cyrac: cat /etc/issue17:28

R-800I'd live to do that, but Synaptic isn't installed on this version of Ubuntu, or am I mistaken?17:28

drmeisterbazhang: Is "install build-essential" a command line command?17:36
bazhangdrmeister, sudo apt-get install packagename is the syntax17:36
nicksloanusr13: the trick is, I'm provisioning with puppet. I can install my upstart script, and tell it to use upstart instead of init, but not when it is already started.17:36

* pinky is away: Away17:37
drmeisterbazhang: Putting it all together its: "sudo apt-get install build-essential"?17:38
TJ-R-800: I assume, a Windows build of python, and the apt-offline python script17:38

drmeisterI'm installing Ubuntu on Virtualbox 4.2.16 on a Mac OS X 10.8.1  -   Ubuntu didn't give me the option of installing 32-bit or 64-bit.  Where does that get defined?17:40
lotuspsychjeval___: maybe try the ##programming channel?17:41
R-800TJ-: Thanks so much.  I know I need to do a lot of self-education here, and with the links you've provided, I think that's finally going to be possible.17:41
usr13nicksloan: And so now that you know that a service is automatically started when you install it, you can act accordingly.17:41
DJonesdrmeister: That depends on whether you downloaded the 32 or 64 bit iso17:41

gribouilleusr13, yes17:49
nicksloanusr13: yeah. That occurred to me, but it's easier said than done. Puppet can't have two service objects of the same name. which means I can't let puppet's magic do the stopping of the init version of the service, and the starting of the upstart version, which means making manual Exec calls, which puppet discourages. Not starting on installation at all would be much cleaner, I was just hoping that it was possible.17:49

Cyraci didnt see the answer of my question,cuz i was away..what was the answer? sorry18:09
TJ-Pici: apt-offline is provided in the Ubuntu archives for offline installation of packages to a non-networked Debian/Ubuntu PC, and *can* fetch the packages required via a Windows host (or another Linux host) as part of its workflow. So it is pertinent to #ubuntu18:09
CyracCan anyone give me the right version of ubuntu? Cuz everytime I try ubuntu the latest version,it doesnt work.. and idk how to check what right version I need18:10

painlessDerHerks so what? do not see any issue here?19:52
Cyraxwilee-nilee: i dont understand this :(19:52
wilee-nileeCyrax, And can you explain what you do not understand, or should I guess. ;)19:53
aldobrhi all19:53
Cyraxi dont understand what u explained and i dont evne understand y I can't sue version 12.. it goes fine with version 919:53
painlessOerHeks, sir, i had a very good quality until i have upgraded to 13.04.. i tried everything...19:54
aldobri want to run a program that i downloaded, its a command line tool, the file is there, the permissions are right but when i type ./do-install i get file not found error19:54
bekksCyrax: Ubuntu version 9 isnt supported anymore.19:54
painlessOerHeks it did work on 12th one19:54
aldobrhow can bash return file not found for a file that appears on ls ?19:54
bekksaldobr: Depends on your check.19:54
Cyraxwell.. at least that works fine for me.. but version 12 i can't evne get it to work.. the one who gave me the download link,. i only got to terminal only19:54
TJ-aldobr: easily :)19:55
aldobra light turned on on my head19:55
wilee-nileeCyrax, That makes two of us, so far you have vaguely described nothing but a terminal, this could be due to a handful of varibles, all we can do is to start knocking them out, so I suggest checking the iso first for a good download..19:55
aldobrwhat happens if the file has a shebang line and the interpreter is not there ?19:55
aldobrdoes bash say file not found ?19:55
OerHekspainless, oke i did not get that part, was working before upgrade.19:55
painlessOerHeks yep19:56
TJ-aldobr: makes sense doesn't it?19:56
aldobri will check that19:56
CyraxWould u b so kindly help me with it, wilee-nilee? would b really helpful..maybe its wrong bit version19:56

linuxliamwas wondering if i'd gain any performance even if its minor20:56
ikonialinuxliam: bigger release numbers do not mean better performance20:57
linuxliami know20:57
holsteinlinuxliam: 13.10 is not released yet.. you are free and encouraged to manually update to whatever kernel you like.. that will not be officially supported here either20:57
ikonialinuxliam: is here anything in the release notes that says it will improve performance for your hardware ?20:57
ikonialinuxliam: if you "know" why are you wondering if it will give you better performance if there is nothing to suggest it will20:57
ikonialinuxliam: you're willing to break ubuntu support/compatability for a fantasy possibility of better performance?20:58
linuxliamthat would be considered testing20:58

FireBeardnobody still installs it20:59
MonkeyDustlinuxliam  if you want to test it, you need not ask questions here20:59
ikoniaFireBeard: what ?20:59
TJ-linuxliam: 3.10 fixes quite a few driver bugs, including very slow Intel 4965 802.11n WIFi, so it can improve things dramatically. It is also supported as an upgrade via the linux-current package series, for 12.04 and others20:59

nukleuzSuperb :) The thing is that I followed a guide on how to remove old kernels from AskUbuntu; I considered the guide as safe, since several users confirmed that it worked. But it resulted in a system without a kernel; and several packages god unintalled. This is a RAID setup where /boot is /dev/md0 (sba1, sdb1) anf /dev/md1 is (sdb3, sda3). When i lost all my files I had to restore my server from a sync (rsync)21:30
nukleuzbackup that was made erlier that day; and now the server wont boot at all. I have updated grub, and tried out everything that I could find on Google/Ask Ubuntu etc. I have used chroot to access the servers filesystem :)21:30

failmasterCyrax, here you go, there is no module for your virtual video adapter for some reason, you may want to continue investigate it reading about how it should be shipped, maybe ther is even package in target system repos21:35

failmasterTJ-, sorry for being a bit annoying, but the thing is... i assume that scenario which feeds the key is already shipped with cryptsetup, because in my case sdb1 unlocks flawlessly during boot for example without keyscript option, so the main issue as i see it - using 3rd party keyscript for this basic operation while having this option out-of-the-box already, so maybe you know by accident what makes it possible by default? =)21:52

apb1963So I just installed a brand new router.  I've got a windoze machine and a ubuntu box.  Windoze is fine, it's where I'm typing from now.  Ubuntu has no ethernet address whatsoever.  However, the router knows ubuntu's hostname so apparently it sees it.  I've tried service networking restart which gives an odd error, I've also tried rebooting.22:06
TJ-failmaster: From the docs, you do still need to provide the keyfile= part in crypttab22:06
apb1963Not sure where to go from here.22:06
failmasterTJ-, so basically i should give it a try - pointing keyscript option to cryptroot scenario?22:06
apb1963When I installed 12.04 LTS server yesterday, there was no network attached.22:06

histoapb1963: and on the ubuntu box sudo service networking restart    or restart the machine22:11
TJ-failmaster: I think the thing to understand is, if you provide the key-file name as an absolute path, and that path is mounted when cryptsetup runs, then no helper script is needed. If however you're using an encrypted rootfs, then it needs a helper script since by definition nothing except the initramfs is mounted - and you won't want to store the key-file in there!22:11
Vivekanandabut would you know about writing demons22:11
failmasterTJ-, /boot is mounted on that stage22:12
failmasterTJ-, and non rootfs device gets unlocked successfully22:12

ubottuKratisto78: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)22:13
failmasterTJ-, i will because wherever i store it it's unencrypted, so boot in my case is removable physically22:13
TJ-failmaster: The docs say, when not providign absolute paths, cryptsetup script will look in certain pre-determined directories for the files22:13
Kratisto78guess i meant usr1322:13
TJ-failmaster: OK, that makes sense, if its a removable USB device.22:14
Kratisto78usr13: I tried adding the nomodeset this time I could see a small amount of purple stretched across the top and it looked like it was loading into ubuntu but eventually it just reset and reverted back to windows.  I just put nomodeset right after quiet and splash22:14

apb1963no, that doesn't work.... there's no device22:15
TJ-failmaster: So, have you specified the absolute path to the key-file in crypttab whilst /boot is mounted then?22:15
Kratisto78usr13: Nope I want to wipe my windows off this eventually22:15

failmasterTJ-, just to make it clear, my steps where pretty simple - set it up with default passphrase auth for both hdds in system, after that leave the only keyslot for key file auth, so both devices have only 1 option - being unlocked with the key file, which works on boot only for non-rootfs device (any mount point but /)22:22

xqeehisto i want script detect only avi, mp4 and mkv22:30
histoWulframn: I tried that already. He can't understand the page.22:30
histoxqee: k22:30
Wulframnhisto: My bad22:30
Dr_Willisxqee:  you will need to use a regular expression for the file.*whaterver* pattern   AND watch out for spaces in the file names.22:30
Kratisto78Nope not really sure what that is22:30
CyraxI have windows 8 64 bit and running virtualbox on it.. i wnat to install ubuntu on virtualbox22:30
Dr_Willisxqee:  id suggest asking in bash and finding some tutorials on regular expressions22:30
usr13Kratisto78: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5sum22:31
Jordan_Uxqee: What is your end goal?22:31
Kratisto78usr13: wait I just tried the nomodeset again and it randomly booted in22:31
Kratisto78usr13: should I just click install ubuntu 13.04?22:31
xqeeJordan_U if script find mkv, mp4 or avi it will create mediainfo in txt file22:31
xqeeJordan_U can handle that fow few file formats its working only for one22:32
TJ-failmaster: I don't know how much clearer I can say it: sdb1 is unlocked because it is mounted after the real rootfs has been unlocked, and at that point /boot/ has also been mounted because of the entry in /etc/fstab. At the point that that linux and initrd are running /boot/ is *not* mounted and therefore the key-file is not accessible. Also, the key-file for rootfs *needs* a helper script installing that'll 'cat' the key-file to stdout so it can be read by the22:32
TJ-script in local-top22:32
WulframnCyrax: You have a fresh virtual environment to work with?22:32
Sharp1Hi, I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 and if I set up a hotcorner to switch workspaces in Unity Tweak Tool, it doesn't work after I log out and log in again. The settings stays the same in Unity Tweak Tool, but the corner does nothing. Does anyone have a solution?22:33
usr13Kratisto78: Go to the file you downloaded and run md5sum on it and google the result.22:33
Dr_Willisxqee:  for just 3 file types.. have it just repeate whatever command 3 times.. once for each pattern.22:33
Cyraxu mean java? on virtualbox or ubuntu?22:33
trace30mdoes fglrx work on newest ubuntu with an ATI HD4350 ?22:33
histoCyrax: you need to use a windows application to verify the hash of your ubuntu iso22:33
usr13Kratisto78: md5sum ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso   #Wait for result and google it.22:33
Ari-Yangtrace30m, fglrx is garbage ;/22:33
trace30mAri-Yang: why?22:33
WulframnCyrax: Do you have a fresh virtualbox environment to work with? Or have you attempted to install Ubuntu in the environment?22:33
Ari-Yangtrace30m, horrible 2d acceleration22:33
histoCyrax: it should match this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes22:33
usr13Kratisto78: Oh wait.  You said it booted up?22:34
failmasterTJ-, so grub never mounts /boot ? =)22:34
histoxqee: I would ask in #bash22:34
trace30mAri-Yang: but better 3D22:34
CyraxI installed virtualbox on my windoos 8 64 bit.. then i downloaded .iso of ubuntu.. the 12.04 LTS on virtualbox22:34
usr13Kratisto78: Did it boot up ok this time?22:34
Kratisto78yeah I'm in ubuntu22:34
Ari-Yangtrace30m, the open source driver, UVD, and the new dynamic power management competes, hell even beats fglrx22:35
histoCyrax: aparently your iso is bad if it's hanging in virtualbox22:35
Kratisto78usr13: fuck I always forget to type your name in front.  I have an option to instlal on the desktop since its in ubuntu22:35
histo!language | Kratisto7822:35
ubottuKratisto78: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.22:35
Ari-Yangtrace30m, can't point you the way, just google what I said, check phoronix out too, bye22:35
TJ-failmaster: GRUB mounts /boot/ to read the bootloader menu and files, and then it chains the linux kernel and initrd image into memory and hands over to them. At that point, *Linux* does *not* have /boot/ mounted.22:35
Kratisto78Sorry everyone my fault22:35
trace30mAri-Yang: is the opensource driver enough for 3D?22:35
budmangusr13: that worked FYI22:35
budmangsorry stepped out for lunch.22:35
xqeeThanks All22:35
failmasterTJ-, how it takes my initrd image requiring appropriate fs module, what is the default mount point then at this stage? =)22:36
Dr_Willistrace30m:  try it and see how well it works for you.22:36
Cyraxhisto: So what i do? i dont understand this hash5sum or what it was called.. so u need to help find a way to fix it22:36
usr13budmang: Good.  Thanks for telling us.22:36
WulframnCyrax: To fix it you need to download a fresh .iso.22:36
Dr_WillisCyrax:  if the iso is a bad download. you redownload it. (torrents can help make sure its a good download)22:36
budmangusr13: why would it not take the default :)22:37
usr13Kratisto78: Ok... go for it.22:37
CyraxCan u give me a fresh fixed one please?22:37
usr13budmang: Not sure...22:37
TJ-failmaster: initrd is mounted as a read-only / file-system... it is replaced by the *real* rootfs just before /sbin/init is executed22:37
Kratisto78usr13: Okay thanks I'll try it hopefully it works and I don't need to report back22:37
linuxliam_what is the best irc client based on features and ease of use granted i am using xchat but i looked at launchpad bug listings for xchat some have been there for years with no fix i would love to fix it myself but im not a developer and input appreciated22:37
WulframnCyrax: Do you know how to use torrents?22:37
Cyraxyes ofcours22:37
usr13Kratisto78: Ok.  Good luck.  (We'll be here....)22:38
Cyraxproblem is to fix that ubuntu u said22:38
TJ-failmaster: So if the real rootfs is encrypted, and its key-file is on the /boot/ file-system, then initrd has to have a script that will mount /boot/ file-sytem onto /boot/ in order to read the key-file22:38
failmasterTJ-, whatever, there should be a mount point for filesystem which contains initrd image?22:38
histoCyrax: I don't need to do anything. You need to read the page that you've been provided as it clearly points you in the right direction for obtaining a hash value of the iso you have on your machine. After you get that you compare it to the link I provided you with the hashes to confirm it matches.22:38
Cyraxi jsut have to install a older ubuntu22:39
WulframnCyrax: download this .torrent file and use it to download Ubuntu 12.04 via your preferred torrent client. http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso.torrent22:39
usr13Cyrax: md5sum ubuntu-what-ever.iso   #Wait for result and google it.22:39
TJ-failmaster: initrd is the root and it contains an /init script that does all the early set-up work, including unlocking a possibly encrypted rootfs that will replace initrd22:39
usr13Cyrax: Which ISO image do you have?22:39
failmasterTJ-, initrd image is a file on a filesystem, that's why grub needs a module for this22:39
TJ-failmaster: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-initrd/index.html22:40
TJ-failmaster: "The initial RAM disk (initrd) is an initial root file system that is mounted prior to when the real root file system is available"22:40
Cyraxjust curious.. about setting ram.. can i set it to any when creating virtual drive or must it b 512MB22:41
failmasterTJ-, agreed, but technically it mounts unpacking from the file which is built as /boot/initrd.img-3.8.0-blah so it has to mount the media with boot22:41
Jordan_Ufailmaster: Why do you want to have a separate key file for your LUKS container rather than doing things normally (with everything needed in the LUKS header)?22:42
usr13Cyrax: Depends on how much you have, how much you think you need or can afford for Ubuntu.22:42
TJ-failmaster: *what* "has to mount the media with boot"  ... that would be GRUB... and Linux has just replaced GRUB in memory and is executing. GRUB is dead!22:42
CyraxI got 8GB ram22:42
usr13Cyrax: Give it 2G or so.22:43
failmasterJordan_U, not sure what you mean exactly, i jsut want key file auth on boot for every luks device without 3rd party script22:43
TJ-failmaster: So, the answer to your issue is, USE A KEY-SCRIPT !22:43
usr13Cyrax: I don't even think Ubuntu will run on only 512M22:44
failmasterTJ-, this answer should be given in /usr/share/doc/cryptsetup/README.initramfs.gz and there is none22:44
Wulframnusr13: 512M is the minimum recommended amount22:45
WulframnIt's gonna run *slooow*22:45
TJ-failmaster: "...if you wish to make use of more complex setups (such as root-key-on-usb-memory), you can create a script which does all the steps necessary to retrieve the key and then prints it to stdout"22:45
usr13Cyrax: If it does, it would be pretty slow and clunky, (unless you go for lubuntu or xubuntu).  But as Wulframn suggests, 512M is "minimum" recommended amount, so...22:46
failmasterTJ-, it gives me an option to have such scenario in case i will decide to hide it deeper, however it is clear for me that grub should mount filesystem with kernel image and initrd before ram disk starts to spin providing initramfs environment22:46
Jordan_Ufailmaster: Is this keyfile contained on a separate media that you plan to keep more secure than the media containing the root filesystem itself?22:46
failmasterTJ-, that's why i already had such setup22:46
failmasterJordan_U, on /boot which is removable device physically22:46
WulframnI was throwing it out there that that was the minimum; I *strongly* recommend a minimum of 2G unless you want to know what it's like to ride a snail uphill through molasses!22:46
usr13Cyrax: Considering what Wulframn must posted, 1G or 1.5G might be ok.22:47
Jordan_Ufailmaster: A removable device which you plan to keep more secure than the internal drive?22:47
Jordan_Ufailmaster: More physically secure that is.22:47
failmasterJordan_U, exactly, because internal drives without bootloader and keys in there are already secured, that's how i see the point of encryption22:47
TJ-failmaster: You are failing to understand that whatever GRUB does, the Linux kernel does *not* inherit. GRUB doesn't 'mount' file-systems for Linux.22:48
dminuthhey guys, am having following problem.  Ubuntu 12.04LTS, am not seeing my battery charge level on a toshiba satellite l745d.  I tried any and all Ubuntu based distro's and am having same proble,.. Tried Debian and it has it.  But i like Ubuntu.  So any idea how to get that to work.  I know it has to do with the toshiba-acpi kernel module but i am not advanced enough to find the solution22:48
usr13Cyrax: Wulframn agrees that 2G is good.22:48
TJ-failmaster: I've been using this exact scenario for my servers for over five years; it needs the key-script.22:48
VivekanandaI am trying to print directly to printer from ubuntu ( ie without print dialogue). Shoould I do this or should I first write a .txt file and then print it or should I write a file in a shared folder, find a host ( win7) program to monitor the folder and print to the printer directly22:48
failmasterTJ-, so it's necessary to have the key file built into initrd in order to make it work for rootfs device?22:49
usr13Vivekananda: lpr  Hit enter, start typing, Ctrl-d  at start of line to finish, or lpr file-name.txt22:50
TJ-failmaster: not the key-file no, the key-script. The key-script then does what is needed (in your case, it mounts /boot/ temporarily, reads the key-file, unmounts /boot/, writes the key-file content to stdout, and exits22:50
Jordan_Ufailmaster: You seem to have it completely backwards. The drives containing the encrypted data are useless to an attacker if they steal the laptop (assuming this is a laptop), but the key (contained on your flash drive) is very valuable. The key should be stored on the *most* physically secure media, not the least physically secure media (if it's stored unencrypted in the first place).22:50
usr13Vivekananda: ... that is, if the desired printer is set as server default.  (lpq should tell you that).22:50
dminuthToshiba laptop not showing battery charge level, Can anyone help ?22:51
failmasterJordan_U, it's not a laptop, it's a olid box that weights about 16kg and i have a very exotic backup for this key file22:51
syntroPiaaarg where  is the gui way to add a user to a group????? do i really need terminal or edit /etc/groups manually??22:51
TJ-failmaster: All the servers in my racks use the same method22:51
usr13Vivekananda: You should also be able to do   lpr file.pdf   or   lpr file.jpg22:51
histoVivekananda: lpr filename -P printername22:51
Jordan_Ufailmaster: Why keep your most important secret (the decryption key) on something that weighs a few grams and is easily stolen then?22:52
failmasterTJ-, i got it, but why do i need a keyscript at all if at some point i have an absolute path which is correct at the timeline where cryptsetup takes place22:52
Vivekanandausr13: I have a guest ubuntu on vbox on a guest win7. here is the problem I am facing --http://www.gist.github.com/vvikramjhu/621538422:53
failmasterJordan_U, because no once can steal it from me22:53
dminuth<--- requiring help for toshiba-acpi.22:53
failmasterone* lol22:53
Wulframnfailmaster: are you andre the giant and skilled in all forms of martial arts?22:53
TJ-failmaster: How does Linux and the initrd scripts know where to find the file-system to mount to read the key-file? Because each admin might choose to do that bit differently, we're left to provide our own key-script22:53
Jordan_Ufailmaster: How is your USB drive secured? Do you keep it in a safe when not in use?22:53
failmasterWulframn, no, i got my profit-habits22:53
Vivekanandausr13: histo the file prints but with lots of weird things. eg sometimes one print goes through but all paper in the tray is cycled through!! other times I get 2 or more prints as in the link I posted above22:53
