zartooshhi on ubuntu 14.04 the network interface is named em1 and p1p6, how could I change this back to eth0 and 1. I have tried may different way as suggested by googling on this matter with no success.00:50
Patrickdkuninstall that damned biosdevname package00:57
Patrickdkupdate your initrd files00:57
zartooshPatrickdk, it did not work, here is what I did:  apt-get purge biosdevname; update-initramfs -u; reboot     ??01:07
zartooshI can not ssh to the system,01:07
Patrickdkwell, if the interfaces changed back to eth0/eth1 instead of em1/p1p6, oviously networking wouldn't work01:08
Patrickdktill you updated it atleast01:08
zartooshyes, it did changed to the eth0/eth1. but I have to run dhclient manually to get Ip address on eth0.01:09
Patrickdkthat says the issue is fixed01:09
Patrickdkdid you expect dhclient to run automatically?01:10
zartooshon next reboot i have to do the same thing again manually, I am hoping this be done once.01:10
Patrickdkthat isn't so, you have to configure that yourself01:10
Patrickdkwell, configure it to do so01:10
zartooshso then there are some configuration also needed to be changed?01:10
Patrickdksure, /etc/network/interfaces01:11
zartooshokay great thanks I go changes those now and see how it goes.01:11
zartooshthat didn't do it, there should be some other configuration file needed to be modified?01:15

xpistosHey all I am having some troubel when I try to use apt-get anything i do tells me E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution), but when I do  it tells me the disk is full although I have plenty of space04:06
xpistosAny Ideas?04:06
cfhowlettxpistos spring cleaning04:07
xpistoscfhowlett: I am all for that but not sure what to do04:07
cfhowlettxpistos sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get purge04:07
xpistoscfhowlett: what does that remove?04:07
xpistosunused stuff?04:07
cfhowlettxpistos  after that, run df -h04:07
cfhowlettxpistos your downloaded packages are retained in the apt/cache      - a major memory hog if you never empty it.  these commands do that04:08
xpistoscool. thanks04:08
xpistoscfhowlett: E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.04:10
cfhowlettxpistos but no longer full disk?04:10
xpistosmy home has 6 gb free04:11
geniiI wonder how much /boot has04:11
cfhowlettxpistos holy!!!  that's pretty tiny ...04:11
xpistoscfhowlett: home has a small seperate drive. I have a /data drive with files on it04:12
cfhowlettxpistos ahhh.  nice.04:12
xpistoscfhowlett: I usually partition with a 300mb /boot, 20gb /, 20 gb /home and the rest is data04:13
cfhowlettxpistos for comparison: my hdd has 211G for /home and my ubuntustudio uses only 9.8G04:13
xpistoscfhowlett: and swap too of course04:13
xpistoscfhowlett: this is an old server and I am just trying to squeeze another few months out of it before I erase everything and put dsl or puppy on it or somethig04:14
xpistoscfhowlett: I am running disk analysis to be sure04:15
cfhowlettxpistos sounds about right.  I'm not the one to advise on server issues, but I do recall that server logs can easily grow exponentially ...04:15
xpistosthat might be it04:15
xpistoscfhowlett: it thinks /usr is full04:17
cfhowlettxpistos yeah, that don't sound right.  ask over in #ubuntu         Don't want to give you bad intel...04:18
xpistoscfhowlett: Will do. thanks for giving it a go mate!04:19

tohuwIs there a compelling reason to use a 64-bit kernel for a lighweight (1-2 GB RAM) web server?04:38
qman__Software compatibility and platform unification04:48
cfhowletttohuw compelling?  no.  more that if your system is 64 bit capable, there's little reason to run anything else.04:49
tohuwyeah. makes sense. this post was helpful: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/38369/running-64-bit-linux-with-750-mb-of-ram-worth-it04:52

gnuoyjamespage, http://paste.ubuntu.com/7736717/13:17
jamespagegnuoy, I'd check 'rmadison XX' for each of those first13:18
jamespagegnuoy, you need to determine whether a) its already in utopic but held up in -proposed due to build or test failures b) not in utopic, but can be synced from Debian which does have the right version13:19
gnuoyohh, python-pecan is fixed in utopic-proposed13:19

frogblue'lo, test    ALL = /usr/sbin/service apache2 restart allows my test user to restart apachae2, is there a one liner in sudoers to allow me all operations on apache2?18:07

tonyyarussoHi, we'd like to have SpamAssassin listen on a Unix socket rather than TCP, but I don't see any indication of a "normal" location for that socket.  My first thought was to have it in a subdirectory, eg. /var/run/spamassassin/spamd.sock, but since the /var/run/spamassassin directory doesn't exist after a reboot currently, I'd need to either a) edit the init script to create the directory first, and remember to do that if any ...18:13
tonyyarusso... future package upgrades overwrite my change, or b) put it in /var/run, ignoreing the FHS recommendation that if an application has more than one file it should use a subdirectory.  Thoughts?18:13
sarnoldfrogblue: d'oh. yeah, a handful of lines is nice and easy.18:14
frogbluearf :)18:14
frogblueam in the sudoers man5 but with no luck so far18:18
sarnoldfrogblue: no kidding. that's a rough manpage.18:19
frogbluehmmm, in fact     test    ALL = /usr/sbin/service apache2 allows the user to restart but not reload18:25
frogblueeventhough estart is not mentionned18:26
sarnoldfrogblue: tbh i'm always skeptical of extra arguments with sudo; I'd rather write a stupid little C helper if I wanted to allow executing one specific program with specific arguments but not other arguments..18:29
frogblueright but has to be knowledgeable in C, which is not my case :) nor in any kind of languages in fact18:29

hallyn_sarnold: GrueMaster: might just try 14.10 to see if that fixes it;19:04

toyotapieTrue, but it's still really old in IT time.19:28
RoyKjrwren: that is, the winnt platform arrived with OS/2, microsoft stole it and named it winnt 3.1 etc etc etc19:28
geniiIBM and MS had a split in 92-93 and the courts decided both could use the same kernel to build on. So IBM's became OS/2 and Microsoft's became the NT core.19:30

GrueMasterI found out the reason the virsh edits were not sticking was another user was also trying to change the system settings.  He has been slapped for his efforts.20:40
GrueMasterBut still, what is the numad daemon and where is it in the repo?  Google had one reference to Fedora (shudder).20:41
GrueMasterAnd I can't really do much with 14.10 other than testing, as this is a production environment.  I've fought hard to get everything on Ubuntu LTS (12.04/14.04) for the last 2 years.  Was a mixed bag of OpenSuse, Fedora, FreeNAS, etc.20:43
hallyn_GrueMaster: so long as removing it by hand sticks, you're ok.  how it got in there, my guess woudl be virt-manager?  Did you use vir-tmanager under precise to create the domain?21:01
GrueMasterYes originally.21:02
GrueMasterIt worked fine until we tried to bump it to 4 vcpus.21:02
hallyn_yeah, i still think this is worth looking into, but i'm not sure where to start.  Could you create a new vm under vir-tmanager and see if it adds the stanza again?  Then file a bug21:03
