knightwisemorning ! :)07:19
MooDoohow are you knightwise Myrtti07:20
knightwisedoing ok. finally found the root cause of my slow wifi at home07:21
MooDooknightwise: brill what was it?  hardware?  signal interference?07:21
knightwiseturns out you have to disable the N spectrum on intel wifi cards under ubuntu07:22
knightwisebad driver/firmware/update thingie07:22
Myrttitired, stressed, wondering if I'm coming down with a flu07:22
MooDoomy daughter got me up at 3am :(07:22
knightwisefunny thing is : i didn't have that problem when I had my airport extreme router.07:22
knightwiseand with the asus i do .. Funny07:22
knightwiseMyrtti: take good care of yourself07:22
knightwisehot coco and stuff07:23
knightwiseDId a nice google search . I pasted part of my Plex media servers configuration webpage url into google07:23
knightwise:) Been watching stuff on random plex servers all over the world :) Funny :p07:23
knightwisehrmphf... flaky connecton to home server today07:29
knightwiseeven irc is slow07:29
MooDoonot built my home server yet, need drives/memory for it07:31
knightwiseI have an I5 with 16 gigs of ram and about 6Tb of storage running a couple of VMs07:32
knightwiseworks pretty fine07:32
MooDooI've got a dell poweredge server, but it only support 500gb drives, which will do07:32
knightwisestorage is not that important unless you also use it as a media server07:33
JamesTaitGood morning all; happy Hugging Day! :-D07:34
MooDooknightwise: nah, looking to have a play with openstack07:34
knightwiseCool :)07:35
* knightwise now needs to figure out how to disable N on his network card.07:35
MartijnVdSknightwise: why? because it's flaky?07:36
knightwiseMartijnVdS: no , because of the known issue I had. Terrible wifi speeds, dropped TCP packets .. The works07:37
JamesTaitknightwise, is this the Intel card with those problems?07:38
MartijnVdSknightwise: if it's intel, /sys/modules/iwlwifi/11n_disable (or something) -- just "echo 1" into it. And for after a reboot, put a "local.conf" in /etc/modprobe.d/ with "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" (or whatever the file in /sys/modules is called)07:39
MartijnVdSknightwise: but 11G is a lot worse than 11N for performance, consider upgrading anyway :)07:39
lubotu3Ubuntu bug 924099 in linux (Ubuntu) "8086:4236 iwlagn kernel module must disable n-support to work with Intel 5300 wireless card" [Medium,Expired]07:40
JamesTaitActually, MartijnVdS got the more recent version, I think.07:41
MartijnVdSyeah, and in iwlwifi the problem *should* be fixed, afaik07:44
MartijnVdSah: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=213493707:45
knightwiseMartijnVdS: JamesTait : I thikn its an intel card08:07
knightwiseI think there is a command that lets you check right ?08:08
MartijnVdSknightwise: read the kernel log, it'll tell you. Also, lsmod.08:08
MartijnVdSknightwise: also, lspci :)08:09
knightwiseI found this link http://askubuntu.com/questions/119578/how-to-fix-slow-wireless-on-machines-with-intel-wireless-cards08:09
MartijnVdSknightwise: like I said.. use the 11n_disable module parameter08:10
MartijnVdSknightwise: that's what that page also suggests08:10
knightwise03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)08:10
MartijnVdSyes, and Centrino network adapters are know to flake out with some brands of router08:11
knightwiseGonna give it a try.08:11
MartijnVdSknightwise: Asus also use Broadcom chips, like Linksys08:11
* MartijnVdS only buys TP-Link these days. Yay atheros.08:11
MartijnVdS(also, openwrt ;))08:11
knightwiseError: Module iwlwifi is in use by: iwldvm08:12
MartijnVdSknightwise: so rmmod that as well08:12
knightwisei'm afraid you lost me there08:12
MartijnVdSknightwise: rmmod iwldvm08:12
MartijnVdSthen rmmod iwlwifi08:12
knightwiseok, followed the rest of the tutorial08:15
MartijnVdSyou should see more stability now08:15
knightwiseThis  command gave me an empty file though  gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi-disable11n.conf08:15
MartijnVdSknightwise: yes, because you're creating it08:15
knightwiseso i just pasted the line in there08:16
MartijnVdSand putting that one line in there08:16

knightwiseso it seems it is sending out quite a bit of network crap08:17
knightwisethanx again for your help in this guys08:17
MartijnVdSknightwise: maybe it's compromised and spamming? Bittorrenting?08:17
knightwiseNope, just did a clean nuke and pave08:17

Laneyyeah, saw some plant shoots the other day that shouldn't have happened for a couple of months09:45
Laneybet these frosts have done them in09:45

directhexbigcalm, excellent question. i don't really know - much of its reason to exist is gone now09:54
directhexradical change in scope? hmph09:54
bigcalmWhat features didn't they include?09:55
directhexi haven't had a chance to analyse yet09:55
directhexam on the clock09:55
bigcalmFair enough :)09:56
BigRedSArgh. Has anyone here worked out how to get an SMTP server delisted as a spam-sender by google?10:31
MartijnVdSby not sending spam?10:32
BigRedSyeah we stopped doing that three days ago10:32
MartijnVdS* don't be on "residential IP space"10:32
BigRedSand everyone else delisted us about two and a half days ago10:32
BigRedSnah, it's a proper smtp server10:32
MartijnVdS* have your host name + reverse mapping correctly (so foo.com -> AND -> foo.com)10:32
BigRedSit's a shared mailserver, and at least some of the domains are spfed up10:33
BigRedSbut everyone else at least has a form where you can fess up and say "but we've fixed it, take our mail?". It took MS about 15 minutes...10:34
MartijnVdSBigRedS: apparently, Google's 5xx rejection code contains an URL10:34

=== roht is now known as wadzi
MooDoopopey: where you get that from, I've just had a look at crucial and their system says it'll only hold 8gb, might be wrong - http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=Thinkpad%20X220&Cat=RAM10:37
BigRedSMartijnVdS: yeah, that one ends with suggestions on how to form marketing emails10:37
popeyits wrong10:37
MooDooobviously if you purchased 16gb lo10:37
popeyi canvassed the internets first10:37
BigRedSI did find a form for bulk senders to apply for some sort of permission which I've filled in, but it's very much "I send lots of mail" and not "I run this mailserver"10:37
MooDooah it officially supports 8gb, but people have been putting in 2x8gb chips into the 2 slots.10:39

YaManicKillfoobarry: dd? :-P11:34
popeyyeah, i use dd11:34
foobarrydd doesn't work for all isos11:35
foobarry...does it?11:35
BigRedSI'm one of those people whose never had a problem with unetbootin :)11:35
popeywhich ones dont work?11:35
foobarrythis is for a esxi installer iso11:35
YaManicKillI've not had one not work for a long time.11:35
BigRedSDon't the ISOs have to be crafted with that in mind? or does USB boot Just Work with an iso9660 image?11:36
foobarryif dd worked, then why did vmware write this page ? https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsphere.install.doc_50%2FGUID-33C3E7D5-20D0-4F84-B2E3-5CD33D32EAA8.html11:36
YaManicKillThere was a nice one that ran on ubuntu that I tried a while ago. Weird English translations, as it was French, but it worked.11:36
popeygosh thats complicated11:36
directhexthe ISO needs to be crafted with that in mind11:37
BigRedSVMWare seem to have put some effort in to making that not-straightforward11:37
directhexbasically you stick an MBR boot sector in the first few bytes of the ISO9660 image, in a space which is basically padding11:37
directhexyou only need 432 bytes for a boot sector11:37
BigRedSyeah, that's the sort of thing I thought was going on11:37
YaManicKillAh, multisystem. http://liveusb.info/dotclear/11:38
YaManicKillThat's the one I used for a while.11:38
YaManicKillLets you stick multiple isos on and not had any issues with anything.11:38
directhexthere are basically 4 different ways to boot: BIOS from CD, BIOS from USB, UEFI from CD, UEFI from USB. you need 4 boot loaders - one for each11:39
directhexUEFI from CD: you create a tiny FAT32 partition with a boot loader EFI application inside, and embed it in an el torito floppy record11:40
directhexUEFI from USB: just make sure the first partition on your USB stick is FAT32, and contains an EFI boot loader11:40
directhexBIOS from CD: 432 byte boot sector in an el torito floppy record11:40
directhexBIOS from USB: 432 bytes at the start of the drive, with a small offset11:40
directhexthe trick is making a .iso which is all 4 of these things at once11:41
directhexthis also ignores macs, which expect HFS+11:41
DJonesC4RR3: Just £16.99 a month11:42
DJonesPhone cost Free11:42
BigRedSMiss Paste? Sounds lovely11:44
azamathi @all . On my ubuntu 13.10, sound goes to maximum sometimes. Why is that?12:11
bigcalmSometimes my workstation boots with audio muted. One of those things (tm)12:18
YaManicKillYeah, me too.12:19
MooDooI can catch the mouse roller wheel and sometimes that takes it to maximum12:19
bigcalmI wish that devices with wifi all came with a standard port to attach an external aerial12:23
bigcalmRan out of ethernet ports on my router in my office so I'm not using the wifi on my workstation12:24
Dave2was "not" meant to be "now"?12:24
bigcalmThe workstation in under my desk and about 4 feet from the wifi router - yet my workstation isn't showing a stong signal12:25
bigcalmPlus, I get about 3MB/s max when transferring between server and workstation :(12:25
Dave2Might I suggest buying a switch12:25
bigcalmDave2: I want this one but don't have the money: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Netgear-Wireless-N-Port-Gigabit-Firewall/dp/B005UGRIIG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=LXT6MFP2WUWA&coliid=I3M4BGF1YGV46612:26
bigcalmTo replace the wifi router I am using12:26
bigcalmReally need to keep down the number of mains sockets in use12:26
ormiretI'm intrigued; why do you care how many sockets are in use?12:28
Dave2that's... a bit pricy12:28
bigcalmormiret: because one _can_ have too many12:28
bigcalmDave2: yep, a cheaper alternative would be nice :)12:28
Dave2Cheaper alternative: a switch and a power brick thing12:28
bigcalmI used to have a switch until I gave it away on freecycle12:29
bigcalmWas only 10/100 though12:30
Dave2you can buy a switch for £hardlyanything12:30
Dave2http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-SG1005D-Gigabit-Unmanaged-Desktop/dp/B000N99BBC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1390307440&sr=8-2&keywords=tp-link+switch £12.4812:30
MartijnVdSI have one of those in white I think12:31
MartijnVdSworks great12:31
Dave2 Instant Order Update for Dave Wickham. You purchased this item on 20 Nov 2011. View this order.12:31
diploI have one of those TP Link ones as well, is good12:32
bigcalmI guess12:32
Dave2I should buy the 8 port one though, because I'm running out of sockets and have run out of network ports.12:32
Dave2This is a switch that's attached to my router.12:32
bigcalmI should build some shelves to put the server and other bits on. My desk it getting messy12:32
* MartijnVdS ponders http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-SG1016DE-16-Port-Gigabit-Management/dp/B00DQ4ED7S12:34
Dave2My understanding is that the cheap TP-Link switches have the same chipset as that one, and so are effectively dumb managed switches12:35
Dave2(May be wrong on that)12:35
MartijnVdSDave2: except the cheaper ones don't have an IP to talk to for management12:36
Dave2Hence the dumb bit12:36
bigcalmMy router is running openwrt, so I don't really need a managed switch12:37
Dave2Those two statements don't really follow on from one another12:37
bigcalmTa for the advice, I might order an 8 port plastic one12:37
bigcalmThey don't?12:37
MartijnVdSDave2: well, the ethernet ports built into a router like that could be used like managed switch ports12:37
bigcalmFor my use, I just need extra ports. So unmanaged seems to make sense?12:38
Dave2No; your router has a managed switch built in, but if you did want to have vlan tagging, then you would lose the ability to have a trunked port going to the switch with different vlan tagging going on there.12:38
MartijnVdSbigcalm: usually, yes.12:38
Dave2Of course, you probably don't actually care about any of that12:38
MartijnVdSthough managed switches can be higher throughput (paradoxically)12:38
bigcalmDave2: I see and you are correct in this instance :)12:38
bigcalmAny advantage of getting a metal one rather than plastic?12:40
Dave2I'm not sure what the other differences are.12:40
Dave2Metal is nicer.12:40
bigcalmThis is true12:40
MartijnVdSyou could connect the metal case to ground, I suppose12:40
* bigcalm measures his office for putting up shelves12:42
bigcalmCan't decide if I want to put shelves on the whole of the wall behind my desk or to leave space for art work13:02

=== alan_g is now known as alan_g|lunch
bigcalmMartijnVdS: in front of me when I'm using it13:03
MartijnVdSbigcalm: then use it for art. Put the shelves behind you13:04

bigcalmWhat was the bz2 method that people suggested I used for compressing a 4.2GB mysql dump?13:45
YaManicKillthat's the most efficient compression I know :-P13:46
davmor2bigcalm: you know when you open a browser and in the middle is this google text box :P  were you after the compression format or the command to do it?13:47
bigcalmdavmor2: I use `tar jcvf foo.tar.bz2 foo`. Somebody suggested a better method13:48
=== alan_g|lunch is now known as alan_g
MartijnVdSbigcalm: there's create_dump_on_stdout_somehow | bzip2 -9 > dump.bz213:50
MartijnVdSbigcalm: if you want moar compression, try xz13:50
bigcalmI have the dump now. Just want to compress it for xfer to my server13:51
MartijnVdSxz -9 file -- why tar if it's one file?13:52
bigcalmI normally use zxvf for one handed quickness but thought that bz2 was meant to be better for some reason13:52
bigcalmMartijnVdS: muscle memory :)13:52
MartijnVdSbigcalm: tar is smart with extensions now I think -- the "j" or "z" don't matter anymore -- at least when extracting13:52
bigcalmOh, xz is a utility. I'll give it a go :)13:53
MartijnVdSgz < bz2 < xz (compression-ratio wise, usually)13:53
MartijnVdS(some files might gzip better or bzip better, but most will xz the best)13:53
davmor2MartijnVdS: so for the next person to beat xzip they will need to do zzip but then it just sounds like your machine is sleeping when you run the command zz13:55
MartijnVdSdavmor2: well they could do yzip instead13:55
MartijnVdSdavmor2: and/or skip to greek letters13:55
MartijnVdSµzip sounds nice and micro :)13:55
davmor2MartijnVdS: yeah but then it sounds like a question13:55
davmor2why zip13:56
* MartijnVdS used "arj" last week13:56
MartijnVdSwell, unarj13:56
davmor2MartijnVdS, bigcalm: I quite like 7zips archive it is pretty compact13:56
bigcalmI'm looking for speed more than compression I guess13:56
MartijnVdSdavmor2: 7zip uses lzma, same as xz, but xz actually has a unixy file format ;)13:56
bigcalmI'll give xz a go13:57
davmor2bigcalm: 7zip is fast so I assume that xz should be too13:57
MartijnVdS7zip decompression is fast13:58
MartijnVdScompression isn't really13:58
MartijnVdSif you want fast, try gzip -1 ;)13:58
bigcalmI do need to actually compress the file as well :P13:59

foobarrygot a summary?16:16
Myrttiso that there's more eyes to see if there's problems and the passangers eyesight is acclimatized to the outside lighting if there's a need to evacuate16:18
Myrttisame reason why during takeoff and landing in the dark the lights are turned off16:18
foobarryso for crashy reasons16:19
Myrttiyeah - apparently european officials require that the plane needs to be able to be evacuated in 90sec16:19

firefoxHello, I have a question about my computer. It was given to me by a friend and she told me the password but it will not take it anymore and i cannot do anything but basic stuff. No administration stuff. Is there any way to override the password16:34
directhexfirefox, ubuntu computer?16:35
diddledan__firefox: you need to reboot into single user mode and replace the password using `passwd` utility.16:35
diddledan__either that or do some dohickery in the live dvd16:36
firefoxok thanks16:36
firefoxi will try it16:36
diddledan__that might be easier but needs another pc available to burn the dvd16:36
diddledan__I hate that grub is so difficult to get to appear with quiet boot - I've still not found a sure-fire way of getting the menu up16:37

ScratmanGreetings all22:28
ScratmanI have an issue with my machine, if I type into my browser, my browser advises that it is unable to connect, how can I resolve this?22:29
directhexum... why do you expect something to reply on port 8081?22:30
Scratmandirecthex I'm following a tutorial to stream my webcam over my network, link  http://cjjulius.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/creating-a-simple-linux-webcam-server/22:30
directhexlsof -i :808122:31
Scratmancopy and paste to terminal?22:32
ScratmanLeaves me back at the default prompt scratman@scratman:~$22:34
ScratmanStill unable to connect at
directhexlsof would tell you which apps are running and listening on port 808122:35
directhexdid it report anything?22:35
ScratmanOne moment22:35
bigcalmDid running motion do anything?22:36
ScratmanJust restarted the process, it's running, but lsof -i still reports nothing22:36
directhexok, so you aren't running anything which would be listening to you on port 808122:36
directhexScratman, which process is the motion process? you said it's running, do you know the PID?22:37
bigcalmpx aux | grep motion22:37
Scratmanpx: command not found22:38
bigcalmSlip of the finger22:38
bigcalmps aux | grep motion22:38
ScratmanMotion ID 805122:38
Scratmanin motion.conf under Live Webcam Server it states:- webcam_port 808122:40
Scratmanhave I done something stupid, or is this confusing?22:41
Scratmanscratman   8051 12.6  0.3  46880 13656 ?        Sl   22:35   0:50 motion22:43
Scratmanscratman    9386  0.0  0.0   4392   828 pts/3    S+   22:42   0:00 grep --color=auto motion22:43
directhexthere is definitely a motion process with PID 805122:44
Scratmanps aux | grep motion returned 2 lines, first was : scratman   8051 12.6  0.3  46880 13656 ?        Sl   22:35   0:50 motion22:45
directhexlsof -iPn | grep 805122:45
Scratmanlsof: unknown protocol name (Pn) in: -i Pn22:46
directhex-i -P -n22:50
Scratmanlsof -i -P -n ?22:50
diddledan__sudo netstat -anp might help, also22:52
Scratmandirecthex what am I looking for?22:53
Scratmandiddledan-- What am I looking for?22:53
directhexScratman, evidence of the motion process actually listening on *any* port22:54
diddledan__Scratman: your motion process - if it's there then it'll tell you what port it's listening on22:54
diddledan__you _could_ pass the output through grep22:54
ScratmanMotion isn't listed in either result.....22:55
diddledan__then it hasn't opened aport at all22:55
ScratmanWell, that would explain why firefox doesn't find it....22:56
ScratmanNow I need to work out how to make it open a port.22:57
ScratmanI  don't understand why it's not opening a port.....23:05
Scratmanand to be honest, I'm too tired to work it out tonight23:07
ScratmanThanks for the help guys, I'll have a think, check the man page tomorrow, and see how I get on23:07
ScratmanSorry, caps lock.   Goodbye.23:11
