veryhappygeartrooper: use fdisk /dev/sdx or gparted00:00
geartrooperI'm installing from a usb stick00:00
daftykinsgeartrooper: 'how' as in how many and what sizes, or?00:00
geartrooperdaftykins I just want the install and swap on a 500gb hd00:00
daftykinsgeartrooper: so 'use entire disk' would be fine00:01
daftykinsi'd personally recommend a separate /home, but you don't have to00:01
geartrooperhow would I do that?00:01
daftykinschoose 'something else'00:01
geartrooperI do, have/ but I am a noob on partitions and don't know what to assign where00:02
daftykinsthen create say, a 40GB ext4 / (root), twice your RAM swap (to a max of 4GB) and the rest as /home ext400:02
veryhappygeartrooper: you have to make an entry in /etc/fstab with the partition that you want to use as your /home partition00:02
rwwveryhappy: no, you don't. the Ubuntu installer does all that for you00:02
daftykinsveryhappy: your advice is totally wrong for this situation00:02
veryhappyok, my bad, sorry00:02
veryhappyi'm just human :)00:03
DEA7THI tried to update to Ubuntu 14, but now it can't boot - I get "error: symbol 'grub_term_highlight_color' not found", and it throws me to grub rescue00:03

SockbatHi folks. How can I run a command as one of the users, when I am root? opposite of sudo?00:04
veryhappysudo username00:04
daftykinsveryhappy: my bad, i forgot the joke ";)" after it :)00:04
Sockbatoooh ok thanks a lot veryhappy00:04
diecastartskiilo, Nevermind thanks for tring I just going to say F it and return to windows and maybe someday used a different distro because sick of ubuntu messing up for no reasons00:04
veryhappydaftykins: ok, good ;)00:05
kupo_anyone have sudo apt-get purge pcmanfm00:05
veryhappykupo_: what are you trying to do?00:06
kupo_sorry. neant to type in terminal... but gksu hasnt been working with pcman.  but works fine with thunar.00:06
SockbatVeryhappy it works. I need sudo -u username command, but then it works. thanks again!!00:06
kupo_i'll just use thunar perhaps then00:06
veryhappy@all: somebody has some doubts towards installing kde on a netbook regarding size of the monitor and space of the hard disk?00:10
kiilo@diecastarts sorry to hear that - i just tried steam on 14.04 and it runs some games ...00:10
zykotick9veryhappy: keep in mind, kde is the heaviest of DEs00:10
rwwnot particularly00:10
rwwworks fine on my netbook00:11
kiilobut its dosent help you of course00:11
randypfauAnyone know how to configure hotswapping hard drives via command line?00:11
zykotick9rww: show me a DE with high requirements then KDE, and I'll retract my statement ;)00:12
rwwzykotick9: define "requirements"00:12
zykotick9rww: memory/cpu/graphics...00:13
=== mishravikas|afk is now known as mishravikas
zykotick9rww: it was more a rehtorical statement ;)00:13
veryhappyzykotick9: ok, well, gnome wasn't that stable as i wanted it to be, i wanted a replacement but honestly i'd like to have good DE that just let's me do what i want and don't need to much space on the monitor but is easy enough to control00:13
rwwsounds like KDE would be fine, if you like KDE *shrug*00:14
veryhappyi used KDE for years, then i went to Gnome and it disappointed me00:14
kupo_i still need to try kde sometime. i just remember it being bloated like crazy and slowly weird00:15
kupo_but pretty00:15
kupo_try xubuntu00:15
rww"bloated like crazy" means what?00:15
lmfao then use cinnamon.00:15
kupo_xfce is always good going00:15
economicallyviabveryhappy, how minimal do you want it?00:15
kupo_tons of stuff everywhere00:15
veryhappyeconomicallyviab: i want to have easy access to most of the features, to my programs and a program bar00:16
economicallyviabveryhappy, check out openbox00:16
kupo_you try xubuntu yet?00:16
rwwzykotick9: memory is irrelevant unless you're running out of it, KDE and say Unity use about the same amount of CPU, and KWin is perfectly happy scaling up or down through the range of graphics cards I have, so... *shrug*00:16
economicallyviabopenbox is probably my favorite WM00:16
veryhappya try it's worth it00:17
veryhappyeconomicallyviab: you got any other alternative in mind?00:17
economicallyviabveryhappy, alternative what00:17
lmfao use cinnamon desktop in linux mint.00:17
economicallyviabi was please with cinnamon00:17
economicallyviabright now i'm on gnome and am liking it00:18
rwwlmfao: we don't do mint here00:18
zykotick9rww: hey "use whatever you want!" ;)  personally after gnome2 i've returned to fluxbox/openbox - then went tiling awesome->fvwm->awesome(again)...  what works for one person, doesn't work for another (it's great we have choices/options in gnu/linux)00:18
veryhappyeconomicallyviab: i wanted to know if you got any other suggestion except openbox that i'm gonna try00:18
economicallyviabveryhappy, what exactly are you wanting out of your DE00:18
veryhappyi'm still searching for my perfect DE, means i got to experiment, but most time the same goal like openbox00:19
economicallyviabone thing i love about Openbox is the ability to bind all sorts of keys00:19
economicallyviabso super W would be browser00:20
economicallyviabsuper F would be file manager00:20
economicallyviabvery fast00:20
veryhappyzykotick9: what's good about awesome/fvwm?00:20
eN_Joyif i do `ufw allow 53`, is it equivalent to do both `ufw allow 53/tcp` and `ufw allow 53/udp`?00:20
economicallyviabveryhappy, http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=32492   there is a screenshot thread for crunchbang which uses openbox00:21
zykotick9veryhappy: VERY minimal!  that's number one, then the whole tiling thing.. if you're into that sorta thing.  ;)00:21
economicallyviabawesome is nice, a little learning curve but very minimal and organized00:21
zykotick9economicallyviab: s/little/huge/ and i'd agree ;)00:21
rwweN_Joy: the default if you don't specify tcp or udp is both, yes00:22
* zykotick9 still hates a lot of configures awesome... but does believe it lives up to it's name, with time/patience00:23
mikeche1enis there any compressed filesystem support in 14.04?00:23
veryhappyok, well i don't want my DE to be bloated like hell, minimal is nice, but one should have at least some sort of bar, that's my opinion, and a clock may not be missing, if you're sitting on your computer/notebook/netbook like me (damn computerfreak) and might miss the time00:23
economicallyviabveryhappy, many people use Tint2 with openbox00:24
economicallyviabwhich can have a clock etc00:24
economicallyviabextremely configurable00:24
economicallyviabcheck out crunchbang when you get a chance00:24
economicallyviabalso, LXDE00:24
zykotick9veryhappy: fyi, awesome does have a clock/calendar - but honestly, i wouldn't recommend awesome to my worst enemy ;)00:24
lmfao can i connect ubuntu with bluetooth with smartphone to connect to internet ?00:25
veryhappyalready did try crunchbang, the underlaying system was not my flavor, also tried lxde already00:25
economicallyviabzykotick9, i remember a few years agoi there was a program i think it was called Pytile00:25
economicallyviabit was kind of like awesome but was basically just a python script with tiling keybindings00:25
lmfao i have nokia5800 xpress music.00:25
economicallyviabveryhappy, heres a little list for ideas https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/desktop_environment00:26
zykotick9economicallyviab: i got into the whole tiling thing - late in the game, so don't remember Pytile :(00:26
economicallyviabzykotick9, here it is http://sourceforge.net/projects/pytile/00:27
veryhappyeconomicallyviab: you were an archlinux user?00:27
* zykotick9 finds the arch wiki helpful, regardless of distro used...00:27
economicallyviabveryhappy, no, but their wiki kicks ass00:28
zykotick9economicallyviab: +100:28
veryhappyi was using arch, but way too much typing for i.e. installing dependencies or programs plus i don't want to compile every optional package i want to use00:28
mikeche1enanyone know how to set up a compressed filesystem in 14.04? is btrfs the best option now?00:28

randypfauI have a newbie question... I have a headless HP Mediasmart EX470 that I installed ubuntu onto. I have SSH access to the machine but I do not have a desktop environment. I was considering running some apps that do not support headless machines (ie. to run XBMC and utillize its uPnP and media scraping services) ... would I look into installing somthing like x? x11vnc server, or somthing of that sort?00:29

veryhappywhat are those +1 for? :D00:29
zykotick9veryhappy: i agree ;)00:30

veryhappyuse AOKP on your mobile phone, then you got your unicorn :D00:30
zykotick9rww: that's a _better_ answer ;)00:30
compdocrandypfau, you would have to install a desktop of some kind, and I like xrdp00:30

lmfaowhat service?00:32
veryhappyafaik you can use your mobile phone via bluetooth as a modem if that's what you want00:32
veryhappyit's better to use ubuntu 12.04 due to LTS or should i go on using the latest version?00:33
lmfaowhere can i find the settings to connect?00:33
randypfaucompdoc, im kind of confused on the matter. what im trying to do is be able to access my server from a Win7 pc using a ssh client like putty but when I run commands that would bring up a GUI it would show it in a 2nd window. Do you know of a windows client that would do that?00:33
rwwveryhappy: do you want to upgrade every six months or every two years?00:33
zykotick9veryhappy: IMO!  if you want ubuntu, you usually want the latest packages, but NOT LTS... other may vary in opinion however00:34
zykotick9s/but NOT/thus NOT/00:34
veryhappywhat support would i have if i would use it?00:34
lmfaocan i install nokia pc suite in ubuntu ?00:34
veryhappyi mostly just come in those chats here and they are mostly free00:34
randypfauIm not looking for a full-on VNC, but rather just be able to view a GUI window in a seperate window... is this possible?00:35
rwwveryhappy: #ubuntu supports all released non-end-of-life versions of Ubuntu00:35
rwwso it'll support 14.10 when it's released in October, for example00:35

lmfao if i cant connect to ubuntu how can i upgrade my old ubuntu ?00:36
veryhappyi better stick to 12.0400:37
zykotick9veryhappy: ahhh 14.04 is out...00:37
lmfaosorry if i cant connect to internet i mean.00:37
zykotick9veryhappy: MUCH more recent packages...00:37
compdocrandypfau, it was in 12.04, but for me, its no longer possible with Unity. So, I install Ubuntu Server and then the Mate desktop. The server doesnt boot to desktop so its very fast at booting, but I can open xrdp desktops00:37
veryhappyzykotick9: means?00:38
economicallyviabveryhappy, updated kernel etc00:38
zykotick9veryhappy: if _i_ was to install ubuntu today - it'd use 14.0400:38
zykotick9veryhappy: which is LTS00:38
veryhappythen i'll take it00:39

veryhappyanyway, so i'm gonna go and use 14.04 now00:56
zykotick9daftykins: perhaps you already know, but the problem with fdisk is it doesn't understand GPT parition tables (but would still work in this use case)00:56

GuenterErseAll suggestions welcome01:01
randypfaui used 'sudo fdisk -l' and my attached hard drive isnt listed... im stumped.. any suggestions01:02
GuenterErseAny suggestions for me? I've already had to reinstall trusty a couple of times because of ot01:02
zykotick9daftykins: that gives me some context01:02
saritaplease look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPWhp_0d8hM01:03
daftykinszykotick9: can you stop highlighting me now please, i have no idea why you are talking to me.01:03
randypfaudaftykins i have tried rebooting, the drive still does not detect... would 'dmesg' give me an indication as to why the drive isnt detecting?01:03
Rebecca18 You can find funny videos here. http://j.mp/1gAh6Jy01:03
zykotick9randypfau: how is the drive connected?01:04
randypfauthe machine is a HP Mediasmart EX470, its a headless system, and has 4 3.5in SATA drive slots on the front which under Windows Home Server are hot swappable.01:05
lazarguys, how can i setup simple ssh server01:05
nith1210GuenterErse: sorry, it's a hard one to diagnose01:05
rwwlazar: sudo apt-get install openssh-server01:05
lazari know01:05
nith1210GuenterErse: did you install the "Additional drivers" ?01:05
lazarbut how to configure it01:05
lazarhow to make account and something like that01:06
rwwlazar: it works out of the box. what configuration do you want to change?01:06
nith1210GuenterErse: Also, does "CTRL+ALT+F1" give you a terminal?01:06
rwwlazar: by default it works with existing user accounts on the system01:06
jasabellahi :) 'm running kubuntu 12.04.4 64-bit and recently installed 4gb of ram, kde only reports 3064 mb of ram available, any ideas what i need to do to have it recognise all 4096 mb?01:06
nith1210GuenterErse: CTRL+ALT+F7 will bring you back to the gui if it does.01:06
lazarso i could just connect via client with current login root info?01:06
GuenterErseI'm thinking it "might" be a video driver issue. I have a gtx 750. The most modern drivers in software center doesn't have it. I installed nvidias 334.20 I think it was01:07
zykotick9nith1210: fyi, when in a console, it's just alt+f7, ctrl+alt+f? if only required when in xorg01:07
rwwlazar: I think root logins through ssh are disabled by default (and we don't support having a non-locked root account in here anyway), but normal user accounts would work01:07
GuenterErseAnd yes, ctlaltf1 will give a term. And I know Unix pretty well01:07
nith1210GuenterErse: Fair enough, my first suggesting is to purge the nvidia driver, then boot up. If that works, then you can play with getting the driver working.01:08
jasabellaout of curiosity, is the C-M-F1 terminal a tty or pts?01:08
zykotick9lazar: allowing root to login to ssh is insanity01:08
lazarok, thanks. so i could use noip.com for dynamic ip adress lock up?01:08
GuenterErseI'll try that with. Thanks01:08
nith1210GuenterErse: also, did you get it from their site?01:09
zykotick9jasabella: fyi, any terminal is a tty (in xorg or console) <- this is MUCH confused even in gnu/linux world01:09
jasabellayou should disable root login, i use a dynamic ip address and i noticed im being attacked :(01:09
nith1210GuenterErse: or the repo?01:09
GuenterErseI did01:09
nith1210GuenterErse: That one is a bit finicky but it is doable. I'd recommend the xorg-edgers ppa instead, it's got the 337 drivers01:09
GuenterErseHmm. I'll check it out. How do you purge from the run package?01:10
nith1210GuenterErse: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa ; works well for me.01:10
nith1210GuenterErse: probably "sudo apt-get purge nvidia-334"01:10
nith1210GuenterErse: sorry, no01:11
nith1210GuenterErse: *bad brain*; I don't remember how to from the run package.01:11
jasabellawhat's the recommended way to 'remote desktop' into ubuntu?01:11
joseluis64I have a problem with gtk applications, when I write words of my native language (spanish) that have diacritical symbol (acute) arent written correctly01:13
GuenterErseOK a bit of luck. Reinstalled drivers, now my desktop will load. But compiz wont01:13
jasabellai shouldnt need to enable PAE on a 64-bit install of ubuntu should i?01:15
nith1210GuenterErse: When you say you reinstalled the drivers, do you mean you uninstalled the run package and are running nouveau or you installed the new package from the ppa?01:15
holstein!pae | jasabella01:16
ubottujasabella: To use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info01:16
GuenterErseActually haven't gotten to the ppa yet. Reinstalled the nvidia*.run01:16
jasabellayep im looking atthat page01:16
zykotick9jasabella: fyi, pae on 64bit is redundant01:16
nith1210GuenterErse: I'd suggest figuring out how to uninstall the run package first, it'll greatly simplify things.01:16
jasabellai had 1gb when i first installed 64bit, now i upgradedthe ram to 4gb and it doesnt recognise it all01:16
jasabellawhich is strange01:16
holsteinjasabella: run "uname -a" and see what kernel you are using01:17
holsteinjasabella: you can always try a 64 bit live CD as well01:17
jasabellawill do as soon as my memtest86+ is finished running :)01:17
holsteinjasabella: you might have 4gb's, and sharing with video onboard, and think you should be seeing more than you are01:17
jasabellayea i dont have 1gb allocated to onboard video lol only 64mb01:18

zykotick9belak: 256G SSD, that's sick.  i'm jealous, it sure beats my 60G SSDs ;)03:11
lotuspsychjebelak: partition trick isnt that important, its what you tweak after install that speeds up03:12
belakzykotick9: I got lucky... a friend was selling it for cheap since he didn't need it03:12
lotuspsychjebelak: check this page for optimizing ssd: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/ssd03:13
belakIf I have the option between a uefi setup and a legacy bios setup, what's better? I know uefi is generally more annoying to set up... but are there any advantages to it?03:13

Wugif you really wanted to investigate it you'd probably need to rebuild it with some special compiler flags04:50
Wugotherwise debugging it will probably be useless04:50
adam_____I'm sure I can investigate what files compiz is accessing etc04:51
WugI doubt it's a file-based problem. much more likely is it's some sort of bad interaction with unity04:51
adam_____Wug: a whole lot in linux is handled as a "file"04:52
Wugyeah well04:53
Wugknowing what anonymous pipes it has open probably won't give much insight as to what its actually doing04:53

mwallyikonia, i really have no idea, I just made the changes in the "NVIDIA X Server Settings" app that came with the driver.07:20

Jordan_Urandypfau: So it indeed does not have a working bootloader, that is a problem if your BIOS is trying to boot from it.07:54
randypfaui have ubuntu server w/ grub installed on the main disk for the server... the other 3 slots are for storage disks, so yea... i guess i dont have a bootloader on thoes 3 disks.. would i need them for ubuntu? im not trying to boot off them.. i eventually want to mount them to the filesystem but not boot from them per se07:56

ubottuhillary: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub207:57
Roryhillary: Did you install Windows after installing Ubuntu?07:57
SirLagzrandypfau: does theserver have remote access so you can see the console as you boot it up ?07:59
SirLagzrandypfau: iLO or anything like that ?07:59
Jordan_Urandypfau: You need them to have a bootloader, or at least not have a 55AA signature, if there is any chance your BIOS will try to boot from them. The same is true for any OS, as you're not even getting to the OS's code if the BIOS gets hung up executing junk from your data drives.08:01
Jordan_Urandypfau: Since these are "freshly formatted" you can easily test this by dding zeroes to first sector of the drive, zeroing the 55 AA signature. That should (with a non buggy BIOS) prevent the BIOS from trying to boot the drive.08:07
randypfauJordan_U  sounds interesting :) u know how I could do that using my windows pc?08:08
Jordan_Urandypfau: It will also make all data inaccessible. If you want to keep the partition table intact you can use a hex editor to just remove the 55 AA.08:08
Jordan_Urandypfau: No idea, try asking in ##windows.08:09
randypfaucool :) will do. thx for ur help, ill see wut happens08:09
Jordan_Urandypfau: You're welcome.08:10

tuakshayHello Guys !!!08:11
tuakshayAnyone here to help me ??08:11
raoul__I have come across a few guides and they all start with replacing the DOM and install onto the DOM. I do not understand why this is required. Can I install straight onto the HDD.08:11
raoul__I did the install created RAID butapparently completed OK but on boot no disk found.08:12
Roryraoul__: Probably not, since it's an appliance sort of device, it will only boot from the integrated flash08:12
raoul__Obviously the QNAP is unable to detect or boot from the raid. not sure how to preceed08:12
Roryraoul__: If all the guides say to replace the flash chip, then that is probably what needs to be done08:13
raoul__I have been able to access the BIOs and get it to boot from USB to start the install but after completing the install it won't boot the RAID. Can I create a grub install on the USB pointing to the RAID?08:14

raoul__the auto installer seemed to do this. I did not pay that much attention byt it did seem to list the 4 drives comprising the raid08:18
=== amal is now known as Guest88510
Jordan_Uraoul__: The installer is a little dumb when it comes to setups like this and only installs grub's boot sector to one drive by default.08:20
raoul__from memory it offered a command like .... /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sde /dev/sdd. I interpreted this as it was installing grub to all 4 drives. I will check in the BIOS and see if the bios is seeing the HDD. On boot just now I believe it showed primary none, secondary none.08:22

antonyHello All, I have to install ubuntu 12..04 in 100 Machines. Want to deploy over network automatically.. Can you let me know how to do this?08:50
ido370lmgtfy.... or not08:51
TJ-Guest0r: Via the software centre any updates will be notified and delivered automatically. If you manually download the .deb, you'll have to keep a watch manually for any security or bug-fix releases, and download/install them yourself.08:51
nestle20when i launch 255 instances of rsync im getting errors (on some of them) saying rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver] and rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(605) [Receiver=3.0.9]08:52

TJ-Guest0r: unless something has changed in the software centre recently, it is just another GUI front-end to the apt tools that work from the installed sources.list entries08:53
Guest0rTJ-: ok great answer, thanks for the help TJ08:53
TJ-Guest0r: I know software-centre will be automatically associated with .deb files and present them too, when they are downloaded. As far as I know that method of install is still of the "manual" variety, and you'd still have to keep a watch for updates unless the DEB package you install also installs its own additional repository sources.list, of course.08:54

Guest0rTJ-: ok cool, (FYI (me) http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/)08:56
TJ-rcmaehl_webchat: If it's simple, you can try: "insmod normal"  then "normal" and if you're lucky, that will start the grub menu that you'd get from holding down "Shift", from where you should be able to manually fix-up and boot08:56

rcmaehl_webchatzetheroo: Yes sir09:02

mikubuntuomg. this laptop is driving me crazy. i had loaded studio on it several mos ago and then lent to a friend. since i got it back from her it is acting ALL BUGGED OUT, and the weird/strange thing is that it seems to have somehow switched to a low latency (non?) pae status, which i'm quite certain it was not. is it possible that my friend did something to alter it? it almost never boots on first try, and many times on second try i have09:02

ubuntuser13ubuntu 14.04 64bit  boot is slow  sometimes shows black screen for few seconds09:10

james0rwhen battery is 5% or less, both of my laptops refuse to suspend09:16
james0ri'm on xubuntu but this has happened with all debian based distros i've used.09:16
YeluDaulity, a program to reboot, really? - Let's try: Click on the gear symbol upper right corner, on your screen, click "Shut down", click button [ Restart ] ... (or I missed your point)09:17
agent_whiteDaulity: Put this in a bash script. (shutdown.sh) `shutdown -r`09:19
TJ-james0r: That is expected. 5% power isn't considered enough to sustain contents of RAM for long enough so rather than allow loss of work, the decision is to refuse to suspend so that the user takes appropriate action to prevent data loss09:19
agent_whiteMaybe put `#!/bin/bash` at the top as well.09:19

james0rTJ-, great explanation and that makes perfect sense. thanks.09:19
TJ-james0r: Of course, the 5% value is based on the assumption that battery lifes are relatively short... if you had a battery that lasted a week, 5% would still be a large absolute value, and maybe quite sufficient.09:20
Yeluagent_white, yes, and will it execute then?09:20

TJ-inawarminister: 1st check the device itself is known to ALSA and to Pulseaudio. If so, select it as the (default) output sink.09:35
roracleokay guys i've tried installing Mint this time, and I keep running into the same issue.  it isn't trying to connect to the internet, it's trying to access the hard drive.  the problem with this is universal for me: every time, no matter what i do, when I install a Linux system, it takes FOREVER and often times HANGS when trying to get to the partition data09:35
inawarministerTJ: yes, using sounds tab in setting, there's a new output09:36
roraclebefore anyone says anything, though i'm installing mint, the problem was persistant with Ubuntu and various other ubuntu flavors09:36
roracleevery single computer i install ubuntu on it does this09:36
inawarministerTJ: but it isn't working09:37
inawarministerthe name is generic: Analogue Output - Audio Adapter09:37
TJ-inawarminister: I have a similar set-up here, and using the Pulseaudio mixer I can "move" application outputs to the USB device, and set it as the default for some types of output (I have it for media but not for notifications, for example)09:37
inawarministerWhich is wrong, since this is a DAC (and shows up in lsusb)09:37
zemamanwhat's up??09:37
inawarministerTJ: ah, but was your DAC shows up directly?09:37
inawarministerThis model does in 12.0409:38
zetheroororacle: so you install Ubuntu and then it reboots into the OS ... ?09:38
TJ-inawarminister: That means, if the device is working, you may need to alter the 'profile' pulseaudio is using. Again, I had that, and had to select "7.1 surround sound + analogue input" or some such09:38
zemamanmay i ask questions even if use a different debian OS?09:38
inawarministerTJ: that's using default unity install right? hmm...09:39
k1lzemaman: better ask in #debian then09:39
inawarministerDamnit XFCE is nice but it keeps failing on me, firs tproxy then this09:39
TJ-inawarminister: Best thing is to use the basic ALSA device sound test tools first to be sure the device will produce sound, then move on up the software stack to Pulseaudio and its profiles and sinks09:39
zemamanthey are noobs09:39
roracleno no no, it's the installer program, please listen:  imagine running a fresh install, it comes to the language screen, continue.  connect to internet, continue.  make sure connect to net, enough free space, download updates, install 3rd party, continue...hang09:40
inawarministerTJ: uuuh, can you help me for that?09:40
zetheroororacle: when you "it isn't trying to connect to the Internet etc ..." , what is "it"!?09:40

Tazmainhi all, I have tightvncserver install but I am having trouble connecting to it, sometimes it lets me connect other times I get just a grey screen and other times its refuses the connection can someone help me set this up?10:07
RoryDid you use the chmod command to adjust the permissions of the utserver directory? It wants "sudo chmod 777 /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/" I believe10:08
ActionParsnipTazmain: what are you using VNC to achieve when you get connected? There may be a sleeker solution10:08
nowayrideHey has anyone come across curl refusing to download .cab files? I am having issues with pipelight and even am doing echo 'test'>test.cab on an nginx server and it still gets connection reset by peer, which makes me think is the root cause here10:08
harry_I don't think so10:08
harry_Actually I used two manuals because one had problems10:09
harry_I will try to find the other10:09
Roryharry_: Make sure you follow all the steps in the guide you're following then10:09
Roryharry_: You can't skip steps10:09
harry_well actually this method did work yesterday10:09
harry_even after I switch the computer off and on10:09
ActionParsnipharry_: why not use transmission? Its in a default install.10:09
nowayrideThe server itself (straight 12.04) can't download from itself on it's domain for any .cab files and Google is quite barren10:09
harry_but today it seems to have issues10:09
harry_@ActionParsnip you mean the ubuntu software center?10:10
agent_white /join #arduino10:10
ActionParsnipharry_: transmission is in a default install, why are you using utorrent?10:10
Roryharry_: Transmission is already installed in Ubuntu and has a web interface10:10
TazmainActionParsnip, I have a remote server, and my Boss wants a GUI interface to it, there is the intel mangement thing but it is so slow its unusable. So vnc seems better. Start it from ssh and then connect using tightvncviewer10:10
harry_aah ok10:10
Roryharry_: If you don't care what client you use, use Transmission10:11
harry_sorry I am a total noob as you might have figured out so I thought I needed to download something10:11
RoryIf you do actually require utorrent specifically we can carry on troubleshooting, but I wouldn't recommend it10:11
Roryharry_: Open Transmission, go to edit -> preferences. Go to the "remote" tab, and click "Allow remote access"10:11
harry_ok then I switch to transmission10:11
ActionParsnipharry_: its in a default install, so you don't need to install anything extra, the OS can handle torents out of the box unlike windows that needs 3rd party software10:11
ActionParsnipharry_: transmission can also have a web UI just like utorrent10:12
harry_@Rory I don see the edit thing in transmission10:12
ActionParsnipTazmain: have you tried using a non-compoziting session like LXDE etc? Using Compiz over VNC can cause issues10:13

striggaHey, I am booting from a rather small SSD and have my data on a 1TB normal (internal) harddisk. This harddisk is only mounted as a removable device as soon as I access it. I would like to have this auto mounted on boot (if possible using the same path as now /media/username/...). Is there a way to tell Ubuntu that this is not removable? I am on U14.04 LTS10:15
TazmainHow would I open the openbox session ? Forwarding over ssh seems slow as well10:15
ActionParsnipTazmain: bah, not sure, maybe there is some extra tweaking for VNC you need, not something I use personally10:16
ActionParsnipstrigga: add it in /etc/fstab10:17
TazmainActionParsnip, maybe, its really fast, just I have trouble connecting every now and then.10:17
striggaActionParsnip: Thanks. It will not interfere with the automounting of the removable drive detected?10:17
Roryharry_: In the menu bar, click "edit" then "preferences"10:17
Roryharry_: At the top of the screen10:18
ActionParsnipstrigga: it will mount at bootup to where you tell it to mount10:18
ActionParsnipstrigga: be sure to use the UUID of the partition. You can see this with:   sudo blkid10:18
harry_@Rory thanks, just have to get used to the interface :)10:19
striggaActionParsnip: Yeah I have done that a couple of times. I was just wondering why this hard disk was recognized as a removable disk in the first place.10:19
Roryharry_: http://i.imgur.com/FSJAVcg.png10:20
Roryharry_: Oh. Yeah it's OSX style, takes a while if you're used to Windows :)10:20
stethoHi. I need to downgrade the kernel on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 for compatibility reasons. It's not something I've done before and I can't find any clear instructions. Is it as simple as apt-get install linux-headers-3.2.0-56-generic and changing grub or are there other steps involved?10:20
ActionParsnipstrigga: is it internal SATA based?10:20
striggaActionParsnip: yes10:20
ActionParsnipstrigga: not sure, very weird10:20
inawarminister_hi TJ you still here?10:21
striggaActionParsnip: You dont happen to know if there is a flag one could set to switch off the automounting to /media/username...., so the behaviour is clear?10:21
ActionParsnipstetho: install the kernel you want and it will upgrade grub, you could use apt-pinning to make the kernel not upgrade and then change the default in /etc/default/grub10:21
=== thomas is now known as Guest13266
harry_@Rory: Thanks I changed it but it still does not start downloading. Should I also change: Only allow these IP adresses?10:21
ActionParsnipstrigga: if you define the mount in /etc/fstab, it will be obeyed10:21
nowayridestetho: you need more than headers, I believe you need linux-image10:21
harry_@Rory: Or am I just being impatient?10:22
inawarminister_hey does anyone know the alsa digital S/PDIF output index number for card 1, device 0 (usb Audio)10:22
nowayrideBut for compiling you'd want linux-headers as well10:22
strigganowayride: AND it will not additionally be mounted as a removable to disk?10:22
inawarminister_it should be hw;1,0 right??10:22
inawarminister_(this is for ALSA)10:22
striggaActionParsnip: well - lemme try. Thanks for your help for now10:22
Roryharry_: It's a torrent client, the speed it starts downloading depends on the size of the swarm etc10:22
Roryharry_: The remote interface isn't required to actually use the client. It's just for remote access from another machine (if you need that)10:22
strigganowayride: sorry - wrong click :D10:22
Roryharry_: An example torrent which is very well seeded: http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent10:23

zetheroororacle: interesting - thanks!10:27

jpentlandHi. Since updating to the latest ubuntu it seems that my system is running VERY slow. It is acting as if I have very low RAM availability, however checking the system monitor shows 0% swap usage and 30% memory usage. I see 2 of 4 cores are always running 100% but there are no processes actually using this amount. All I can see are a few kworker thread processes doing a lot of disk sleep,.11:13

andaiActionParsnip: thanks a lot :) hopefully it's fixed12:07
bekksramsub07: Of course. Having no backup just means you have no data worth to be kept.12:07
ActionParsnipramsub07: you need a backup anyway, as part of your weekly / daily backup regime12:08
ramsub07Oh, so after upgrading the datas will be erased ?12:08
ActionParsnipramsub07: not with the online upgrade no, but you will need to upgrade twice online and ytou will have loads of fluff left from the old versions12:08
bekksramsub07: No. Having no backup mean you dont care wether you data is lost or not.12:08
ActionParsnipramsub07: or a clean install with te OS as it is intended then restore data from backup will get you to the latest LTS much faster and with fewer issues12:09

Rorytaltk9: I would recommend 14.0412:58
boingboingbekks: I said so, or do you mean something different?12:58
taltk9Rory but my problem isn't ubuntu12:58
taltk9Rory my problem is the php version12:59
netyireboingboing: do you mean in terms of the disk's cylinders? in general, you can declare partition start/endpoints wherever in heck (heck obligingly present somewhere on disk) you so wish12:59
Rorytaltk9: Oh sorry12:59
boingboingif sda2 ends at XXXXXX0 I should start at XXXXXX1 for sda3 or not?12:59
boingboingfdisk is asking for the first sector12:59
Rorytaltk9: If you absolutely need an old PHP version, there's little else you can do than (a) install a deb from an older version of Ubuntu, or (b) compile it yourself from upstream12:59
netyireboingboing: by should, do you mean you must or do you mean general practice ?12:59
boingboingbecause sda2 doesn't neatly follow sda1 it recommends the first sector after the end of sda112:59
zambaRory: so? any idea?12:59
boingboingnetyre: my problem is that I'm trying to resize my lvm13:00
Roryzamba: I'm sure it's something to do with just the way du and ls and things report sizes... dd says it copied x number of bytes13:00
boingboingnetrye: I first had 40GB and now 60GB, so I want to create sda3 with the 20GB and add it to the lvm13:00
zambaRory: ok13:00
taltk9Rory I will study this possibility13:00
Roryzamba: Also, I think reading from /dev/zero is faster than /dev/urandom - although if you need random data disregard13:01
boingboingbecause sda1 and sda2 do not end / start at the same sector, fdisk recommends the first sector after sda1 ends for this new partition13:01
boingboingthere is a 2000 sector hop between sda1 and sda213:02
boingboingso basically, I think fdisk recommends creating a partition within those 2000 sectors13:02
ART007taltk9: Look at php-perl. It allows you to run multiple php versions on the same machine.13:02
boingboingwhich would be retarded, or not?13:02
boingboingthis would give me like a 1mb partition13:03
boingboingor am I misunderstanding something here?13:03
ART007taltk9: My mistake, it's named "PEAR"13:03
Roryboingboing: It would be "retarded" if fdisk didn't let you create a partition as large or small as you like13:05
ART007taltk9: perl,pear, all sound the same! You want php-pear :)13:05
f3lixDoes anyone know which settings in an AMI are reset when you launch an Amazon EC2 instance? And how?13:05

dtcrshr   hello everyone. Im searching the foruns but most of the questions are about authentication, none related to what I need to achieve. We have 6 netbooks here on the library, which we lend to the studets to use the web inside the library, they came with windows and for obvious reasons I revamped them with ubuntu lts. The problem is that we use a wpa2-enterprise authentication, and each student has its id / password for multiple services, incl14:20
dtcrshrudind the wireless authentication, for variuos purposes. Ubuntu for some reason If i create any netowrks it only saves if i prompt in a password, different from windows that I can create a connection without saving the credentials, which is the perfect situation, since many students could use the same computer, and would be prompted form his own account on the wireless14:20
Noiroarcsky: You just freaked me out for a sec. But got to system settings and 'about'14:20
NoiroI got paranoid and was like, "Holy shit, did I install 32bit instead of 64? I forgot to label the CD!"14:21
module000dtcrshr: are they all logging into ubuntu with the same username? otherwise wifi networks are saved per-user14:21
dtcrshrmodule000: yes. we have an admin user and a "library" generic user with limited access14:21
dtcrshris the user the students will use, its impossible to create 6800 users on a netbook, but they should only authenticate to the wirells with theyr credentials14:22
trijntjexMopxShell: in that case I don't know what the problem is, sorry14:22
module000dtcrshr: that's your problem - you'll need to stop the saving of credentials so they all have to authenticate14:22
xMopxShellkk, thanks though. i think ill post on the forums14:23
dtcrshrmodule000: but it wont allow me to even create a connection, without prompting the user /password14:23
dtcrshrif it saves, it promprts only the password, not the user14:23
trijntjedtcrshr: what do you mean by that? That you need to give the password for 'library' or for the wireless network?14:23
dtcrshrthe wireless network14:23
dtcrshrthe limited user is just what I need14:24
trijntjedtcrshr: how about setting up a 'guest' account? All information associated with that account should be deleted when the users logs off14:24
dtcrshrthats a major problem, since I dont want to get back the netbooks to windows, which with the same ambient (admin user for TI, and limited user for lend students)14:24

dtcrshrikonia: yes! it works fine, but when the next student would use the netbooks, it brings up the user saved, and its not possible to change, on each connection, the user and password14:56
ikoniadtcrshr you need seperate logins on the ubuntu machine14:56

ikoniadtcrshr: not if your eduroam requires user/auth14:58
skinuxHow many things in Ubuntu specifically use LaTex?14:58
ikoniadtcrshr: unless you have a guest account for eduroam (which you are not allowed)14:58
dtcrshrI dont care the credentials to log in the station, since its kinda of a quiosque14:58
ikoniadtcrshr eduroam does14:58
joelmoskinux: interesting question14:58
trijntjeemmanuel0791: yeah, thats normal, it has to do with the way booting ubuntu works14:58

ikoniadtcrshr: you are using it for a function it's not designed for14:59
dtcrshrwhat would you suggest then ikonia ? to buy a active directory so we could have separated users for each cpter? thats way too expensive15:00
dtcrshrI cant imagine the use them for guest / limited user accounts then15:00
ikoniadtcrshr: active directory is nothing to do with it,15:00
ikoniadtcrshr: it doesn't change the fact you are using the guest account against eduroams policy15:01

llutzjoelmo: remove -s if it would do the right thing15:04
trijntjelostmymind: if your card is old you migth not even need additional drivers, have you checked 'software & updates' to see if you need any additional drivers?15:04
llutzjoelmo: i guess nginx will need some php5-stuff too then15:05
dtcrshrikonia: well, the eduroam policy is that each user has its own authentication, it dont forces up the computer itself to have a separated user, desktop of its own15:05
dtcrshrif it was, we would never get aproved to use the service15:05
skinuxI was asking about disk usage because apt-get dist-upgrade returned 'no disk space' just before initramfs-tools. And, now I have to boot using previous kernel version or I get a BusyBox instance (which I've never understood how to use).15:05

SivikI'm seeing an issue with it not picking up the monitors on my other video card in amdcccle15:06
dtcrshrwe have a lot of laboratories, as I mentioned before, with windows and macs, that  uses limited users for the students, and they can use the eduroam auth just fine, which prompts them for the user / password15:06
Sivikit was working fine before I did the upgrade15:06
trijntjeikonia: wouldn't it be easy to write a script that asks the user for username/password and connects to eduroam?15:06
kaozoooo 14.04 is out... is it worth the update?15:06
ikoniatrijntje: sure, you could write a script that deletes the certificate, the user accounts and the password for network manager on logi - however that would be against eduroam policy15:06

ActionParsniplostmymind: what GPU do you use?15:08
dtcrshrbut the certificate wont change. I just need the user to prompt his OWN user / password15:08

ikoniasege__ correct, but if the certficate is there - it will connect and thus use the previous credentials15:11

treehau55hi, I am finding doing a simple cron job on ubuntu more difficult than it probably should be. There are a sea of conflicting articles on the net as well which isnt helping15:54
jrock20041Running xubuntu 14.04 and had prime working. Did an system update and now its not working. Thoughts?15:54
tzvitreehau55: what are you trying to do?15:54
petros_ActionParsnip, the big mystery is that when I boot from live it plays videos normally15:54
pero_phi, is this possible to add a user to system by just editing /etc/passwd & /etc/shadow ?!?!15:55
suigenerisRory: are you still there?15:55
jrock20041I also lost my prime support as well15:55
trijntjepero_p: I'm not sure, why not just use a graphical program or useradd?15:56
jrock20041I reinstalled nvidia-331, rebooted and no go15:56
treehau55tzvi: well first, I am just trying to simply see if I can get an echo back to the console as a tester to see if I am doing this correctly, so pretty much whatever the time is now, + 1 minute, and echo "hi"15:56

jrock20041I dont see anything in my xlog as far as errors15:56
pero_ptrijntje, cuz i need an script to do it for me and i should write it myself, i thought if it could possible by just run one command15:57
treehau55tzvi: as far as my cron implementation goes, I seem to be using Cronie15:57
tzvitreehau55: do you know the crontab syntax?15:58
uskerinehi, could someone please help me and let me know where should I define a cron job? (to be executed when system is up, no matter if user is logged in or not)15:58
pbrantpero_p - joined this half way through but why not just call logger ?15:58
tzviuskerine: read this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto#Crontab Sections15:58
tzviespecially the sections part15:58
Term1nalNeed a bit of advice... my CRON doesn't seem to be running. I've checked the syntax, the script works if I run it normally, just plain doesn't seem to be working at all. C15:58
treehau55tzvi: yes, its right there in the file too.  I am familiar with that document15:58
pero_ppbrant, logger?15:58
pbrantyou want to log a message - call logger15:59
treehau55tzvi: at this point im trying everything to see if something sticks, im trying crontab file, trying etc./cron.d, trying user cron file, ect ect15:59
tzvitreehau55: I'm not sure on this, but I don't know if you can echo to and active session using cron15:59
ActionParsnipuskerine: if you have a desktop UI then gnome-schedule can be used as a GUI to cron, but learning to make crontabs is a useful skill15:59
treehau55tzvi: amongst numerous examples I have looked at, they all seem to do that as a tester just as I am trying16:00
treehau55tzvi: i have a question though, when exactly does the cron daemon pick up on the new crontab entry? immediately? or do you restart the service?16:00
tzvitreehau55: I would try writing a file with cron, then check for that file16:00
pero_pi dont want to log a message :), i want to add a same user on about 100 pc's16:01
pero_pi thought if it could done with a script editing /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow16:01
uskerinethanks actionparsnip16:01
treehau55tzvi: yes that seems to work16:02
tzvitreehau55: I believe it happens immediately16:02
uskerineonce set up with crontab -e, do i have any further action to ensure that task is executed even when user is not logged in?16:02
* pbrant apologises.. miss read thread..16:02
lostmymindIf you root your smartphone and use clockwork mod recovery you can backup EVERYTHING on your phone. OS and all files. Then when you restore, even if it's a year later, it's as if your phone is right back to where it was when you backed up. On windows you can't do this. Can you do it on lubuntu?16:02

gmachine_24greetings, earthlings. :-) I have a 2TB drive that I want to scan for problems - it is an ntfs drive, but I am checking for physical problems .... is it best to boot from a standard Ubuntu install disk and then run command line checks or is there an Ubuntu version built for this kind of thing... or another Linux disc/release you'd recommend?17:13
Beldargmachine_24, problems like?17:14
Aarunihow to change default location of screenshot in trusty? I did it in precise from some config app, but I can't recall right now.17:14
gmachine_24Beldar, if sectors are dead/dying17:14
Beldargmachine_24, Ubuntu has a smartdisc check on the live and install in disks17:14
Beldargmachine_24, disks-top right corner dropdown17:15
gmachine_24Beldar, really? ... hmmm..... this I didn't know..... I've always used some command line utility17:15
gmachine_24Beldar, anyway, thanks. I'll look into that.17:16
Beldargmachine_24, Sure, there are a number of tools, that is the one I have used most often, but I have never had a failing HD is all.17:16
gmachine_24Beldar, yeah, I don't know if it's failing. I tried spinrite but it .... failed.... somewhere.....17:17
Beldargmachine_24, Being ntfs I wonder if they need chkdsks or fragging is all17:17
manalastaDoes anyone know how to change wallpaper behind the cube on Ubuntu 12.04? Thanks for the answer.17:18
gmachine_24Beldar, I'm kind of doing overkill; I ran chkdisk on the drive and it was OK - but it makes funny noises17:18
netyireBeldar: it will become fragmented over time, if it isn't cleanly unmounted it may also require chkdsk via windows (linux will only mark the partition as 'dirty', *shivers*!)17:18
Beldarnetyire, anything is possible yes.17:19
netyireBeldar: anything is possible ! :-)17:19
gmachine_24to be safe I should just xfer the data to a new drive and farm this one out for .... whatever17:19
netyiregmachine_24: I suspect the drive is aging, you can check it's health via the inbuilt disks tool17:20
gmachine_24netyire, yes, except it's practically new and I don't return drives for a refurbished version as I think that's just a waste of time/money17:20

netyiretechnodict: right click on the desktop -> add shortcut -> python <path/to/script.py>18:04

Both NICs get 192.168.56.x addresses which is weird, since eth0 should still get 10.0.2.x in my opinion (i didnt change mode on that). I am confused since server guide for 14.04 states that there should be a file "/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.ru18:53

raphaelltyped commands recovery started with live cd but all without success, so I decided to format everything and do all the recovery win again and install ubuntu again finished doing the two first installed windows and when I finished I realized that ubuntu the problem persisted, so when you open the grub appears WINDOWS BOOT MANEGE option, if I click it, grub will be gone, how can I do to solve this?21:28
itmustbejjezio you could use python's syslog.syslog()21:29

raphaellI'm with personal problems, had to do a recovery of win 8 coming by professional native question so far so good, installed it and then immediately installed ubuntu in dual boot, grub appeared and started the ubuntu normally, there was access win to know if everything was okay and I realized I had no option windows boot loader only manage windows, shook it, the windows began to restart but the grub was gone, I did everything I found on the internet,22:30
raphaelltyped commands recovery started with live cd but all without success, so I decided to format everything and do all the recovery win again and install ubuntu again finished doing the two first installed windows and when I finished I realized that ubuntu the problem persisted, so when you open the grub appears WINDOWS BOOT MANEGE option, if I click it, grub will be gone, how can I do to solve this?22:30
willwhFluxis: not sure mate, sorry :/22:30
Fluxis:( thanks anyway...22:30
Jordan_Uraphaell: Please try selecting the Windows Boot Manger and then boot from an Ubuntu LiveCD/USB and pastebin the output of "sudo efibootmgr".22:31
raphaellJordan_U, the problem is that if I inicalizar windows manege will delete grub and I can not recover it, ended up having to make a 4-hour recovery windows and then install ubuntu, my biggest concern is that22:33
holsteinraphaell: you can, and will recover it with the live CD22:33
raphaellholstein, I tried several different ways, over and over and could not22:34
holsteinraphaell: you let windows break grub, then recover grub,.. then, install the proper grub22:34
holsteinraphaell: have you tried the suggestion above?22:34
holsteinraphaell: sudo efibootmgr ?22:34
holsteinraphaell: you'll do that *after* you let windows break grub. then, recover with a live CD22:35

raphaellstill can not, try22:35
holsteinraphaell: so you tried that?22:36
holsteinraphaell: what were the errors, friend?22:36
holsteinraphaell: we need details to volunteer helpful information22:36
raphaellholstein, just type sudo efibootmgr to recover grub?22:36
holsteinraphaell: no22:36
holsteinraphaell: step one.. select the windows boot manager.. step 2, recover grub using an ubuntu live CD.. step 3, run "sudo efibootmgr" and pastebin the output for Jordan_U22:38
holsteinraphaell: this is *not* a fix yet22:38
raphaellholstein, accessed when the windows boot manager and later used the live cd, typed several commands to recover the grub but all to no avail, in the end he could not install grub, tried to install boot-repair but could not install the same, he did not install the live cd22:39
holsteinraphaell: then, share *exact* errors22:39
holsteinraphaell: this is the only way to get information for volunteers to help you22:39

The firefox starts BUT just firefox, no other program at all. What can I do to have a normal enviroment? thanks!23:07

aPpYeI chose to build friends and family machines with a  metapackage I maintain on my simple repository ... This has worked great until 14.04 release.  Now, upon upgrading to 14.04, do-release-upgrade wants to uninstall my metapackage, and most of the packages it calls.  Why?  How to stop this?23:24
aPpYeall machines were built on 13.10 originally.23:24
willwhso you haven't done a distpupgrade before?23:25
aPpYethe same, unmodified metapackage installs perfectly on a fresh 14.04 mini installation.23:25
willwhI am not sure how you can stop dist-upgrade disabling packages23:25
willwhI imagine there is a way to do so23:25
aPpYeI have done dist-upgrade lots and lots on other debian derivatives.  I was surprised to see do-releaseupgrade killing my package though.23:26

willwh(I'm running debian mostly)23:27
aPpYewell, the idea is to have people use the standard GUI tool.23:27
aPpYeI would think dist-upgrade would not cause this to happen, and that this is something in the do-release script23:28
aPpYebut that is just me assuming I guess.23:28
Sirisian|WorkOdd. I have an issue. I setup a VM with ubuntu 14.04 to test. I installed ssh and gave root a password. I can't login with putty using root to the server. I can login just fine using my default account. There's no PermitRootLogin line in the /etc/ssh/ssh_config so it should default to yes like it always has. Once logged in as my default account I can su to root just fine. What's going on?23:28
YeluSirisian|Work, Unbuntu's default root account has no password set, so you can't use it to log i with ssh. - This is intended for security reasons. - Just do it as you described here.23:30
Sirisian|WorkYelu, I su and set a password though using passwd23:31
Sirisian|Workdoes that no longer work?23:31

codepython777is do-release-upgrade available for 12.04 LTS to move to 14.04? is it reliable yet?23:32
YeluSirisian|Work, okay, you set a password in your rootuser account and permitted root logins in ssh_config. - Did you log out and log in and  "sudo service ssh restart" to put your changes in effect23:33
jost_codepython777: my last info says that it will be available once 14.04.1 is released23:33

aPpYeI am not much of a python guy, but I don't see anything in the do-release-upgrade script itself to disallow metapackages.  I don't see anything related to apt either... I am thinking I need to look at get_fetcher?23:39
Jordan_UaPpYe: Does your metapackage conflict with ubuntu-desktop in any way?23:41
aPpYeperhaps?  Not sure.  I build a kde system.  ubuntu-desktop wouldn't be on a system built from mini.iso anyway though ...23:42
aPpYeso I am unsure if that is relevant.23:42
Sirisian|WorkYelu, ignore me.23:42
Sirisian|WorkI got it to work. I was looking at the wrong file23:43
YeluSirisian|Work, okay your "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" contains "PermitRootLogin yes" and "DenyUsers user1 user2 ..." (<= WITHOUT "root") or commented out? - And just to be sure add "AllowUsers root" to the file, then restart sshd23:43

aPpYeJordan_U,  do you agree that I am correct in my assessment that ubuntu-desktop would be irrelevant?23:44
Sirisian|WorkYelu, /etc/ssh/sshd_config had PermitRootLogin set to without-password. Previous versions this was just set to "yes". I usually do my server setup with putty to quicly paste commands.23:46
