JanCcaliculk: do you really need an old Postgres version?  if so, maybe use Ubuntu 12.04 for now?01:01
JanCand find some way to upgrade in the next couple of years01:01

dsfsdgdsgHi there, How do I allow "user" who is apart of "snort" group access to /var/log/snort/, these are the permission I have so far. (http://paste.ubuntu.com/12147143/)01:26
dsfsdgdsgin order for a user to have rw do you have set +x ? makes no sense01:38
TJ-that directory doesn't give the user any permissions01:39
dsfsdgdsginteresting what should I google to work this out?01:42
TJ-dsfsdgdsg: look at the pastebin... in particular, look at the owning *user* and *group* - what is the *group* ?01:42
edtoast_46please try joining #edtoast .I would greatly appreciate it01:43
dsfsdgdsgthe owning groups are *snort* and *adm* ?01:44
TJ-dsfsdgdsg: no. The owning user is "snort". The owning *group* is "adm". Is your user a member of "adm"?01:44
dsfsdgdsgno I'm not in group adm only snort, sudo and user01:48
TJ-dsfsdgdsg: that is why the user doesn't get access to /var/log/snort/01:48
dsfsdgdsgTJ-: excellent thanks so much I've added myself now have access, If I have 0660 set I cannot see the permissions on file only file names as *user*01:54
caliculkAlright, a little frustrated, but after trying to modify samba config files, and restart the service, I can no longer properly start or access the samba server.03:09
caliculkIt doesn't show up if I ty to manually access it, if I rollback the config file either.03:09
caliculkThis is what syslog states: http://pastebin.com/C7adWBcd03:18

tiblockHi. I have binary file "myprogram" and i want to launch it just like "myprogram" what is correct way to do it? I know i can "ln -s" it to /usr/bin or add to PATH, but what is correct way?11:17
bekkstiblock: Add it to your path.11:17
bekksOr start it with "./myprogram" after changing to the directory where it is located.11:17
tiblockbekks, isnt there tools in ubuntu for that? I saw programs do like "update-alternatives" or something and after that programs are working.11:19
bekkstiblock: update-alternatives will not help you in this case.11:20
tiblockbekks, okay, thank you11:20
bekkstiblock: Whats the actual issue, behind your question?11:20
tiblockbekks, just want to know maybe i doing something wrong11:20
tiblockbut looks like everything is fine11:20
jellytiblock: if it's not packaged, you should probably use /usr/local/bin PATH component instead of /usr/bin11:32
tiblockjelly, thank you11:42
yokoHi, my simple question12:49
yokoinstall lamp in root account, i have use normal account localhost, example adress localhost = /var/www I have localhost = /home/myaccount/www how added in apache2.conf ?12:50
tewardyoko: um...12:53
tewardyoko: edit the apache configurations with sudo?12:53
yokoyes i used sudo12:54
tewardand you edited the apache configurations and pointed the docroot to /home/myaccount/www ?12:54
yokomy apache2.conf file http://wklej.org/id/1781392/12:55
yokoi have use localhost forum in normal account home12:56
tewardyou didn't edit this config12:56
tewardor rather12:57
tewardyou provdied the WRONG configuration12:57
tewardyoko: the config for the sites is in sites-available.12:57
yokoi know12:57
teward`sudo a2dissite default`12:57
tewardthen edit the default configuration file in the /etc/apache2/sites-available/ folder12:57

teward`sudo service apache2 restart`12:57
yokoERROR: Site default does not exist!12:57
tewardi hate apache12:57
yokolighttp install ?12:58
yokoIt only local localhost on theme created12:58
tewardnot what i meant12:58
tewardyoko: include the /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf in a pastebin13:01
tewardyoko: edit line 12 to be the correct docroot.13:03
tewardie. /home/myaccount/ww13:03
tewardrestart the apache2 process - sudo service apache2 restart13:03
tewardsee if that fixes it13:04
teward(and read up on Apache configuration documentation because you should probably try and understand it a little if you're going to be running apache)13:04

RoyKlinocisco: just split it in two if you want dual boot. I'd use a VM for one of them, though. Why are you testing both?13:42
RoyKlinocisco: Both should work well on their own - it's just linux - the choice between them mostly depends on what you're most used to or what you like13:43
linociscoRoyK, thanks for reply. One OS should be ubuntu server with most common server roles, file/directory .etc and second will be Elastix with is natively bundled with CentOS13:44
RoyKlinocisco: I beleive you can run elastix on ubuntu too13:46
linociscoRoyK, I dont want to mess up both13:46
RoyKoh - you mean elastix as in a distro?13:47
RoyKthat one? http://www.elastix.com/en/downloads/13:47
RoyKjust run a VM with it13:48
RoyKinstall kvm+libvirt and start virt-manager and install it13:48
linociscoRoyK, sure. Elastix recommends upgrade only from its release. no modification. I am not happy with performance of VM of my hardware resource.13:48
RoyKwhat sort of hardware?13:48
RoyKa VM usually gets 10% lower CPU than native, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem13:49
linociscoRoyK, HP Elite 8200 CMT and internet is very expensive here13:49
RoyKwe run 90% of our servers virtualised ;)13:49
linociscoRoyK, it might be hardware virtualization like VMWare ESX-i. software virtualization is not so good in performance13:50
RoyKkvm uses hardware virtualisation13:50
RoyKjust like ESXi13:51
RoyKAmazon is mostly using KVM these days13:53
mybalzitchI'm glad the most recent kvm update fixed virtualization on my server13:54
mybalzitchit had been broken for more than a year13:54
RoyKbroken how?13:55
mybalzitchlibvirt would complain about an unknown error when you launched a VM13:58
linociscoRoyK, Is KVM better than Oracle's Virtualbox?13:58
mybalzitchlinocisco: kvm is not an oracle product, so that's nice13:58
quanticlinocisco: Highly.13:58
linociscomybalzitch, i know. it is linux's one13:58
bekksVirtualbox is an Oracle product, so its not that slow as KVM ;)13:59
RoyKlinocisco: probably about the same - VirtualBox may be better on graphics, though, but usually you won't need that on a server13:59
bekksYou can run VBox headlessly.13:59
RoyKbekks: yes, you can, but I was thinking about desktop virtualisation - last I tried that with kvm, it wasn't very good, but again, this is about a server, right?14:01
RoyKoh - seems KVM supports vGPU now too14:02
RoyKESXi 6 supports that too - not 5.5, though14:02

linociscohi all14:14
linociscowith reference to http://ubuntuserverguide.com/2013/02/manual-disk-partition-guide-for-ubuntu-server-edition.html, i m not quite sure about partition14:14
RoyKlinocisco: just create a 1GB partition for /boot, with ext2, and then a partition with the rest of the disk for LVM, on LVM, create a LV for swap (same as memory size) and one for root (10GB should do for a start) on ext4. Add more later or increase sizes later if you need to14:16
RoyKalways use LVM - it's way more flexible than partitions14:16
linociscoRoyK, I am thinking about dualboot as I said. so should I choose 50% first?14:18
RoyKlinocisco: why dualboot? have you even triede KVM?14:19
RoyKtried, even14:19
RoyKor tested14:19
RoyKor whatever14:19
RoyKtry virtualisation first14:19
linociscoRoyK, i should install KVM , right  ? that will need internet to download, here more dowloading more money here with mobile internet I have here14:20
linociscoI have never successfully managed dualboot14:20
RoyKlinocisco: the packages aren't very big14:20
RoyKthe virtualisation level is in kernel - all you need are the support packages14:20
linociscoRoyK, honestly, I have internet with 3G SIM card with Nokia E5 handset. I dont know how to provide internet from that dump nokia to cli only server. that is why I am stuck14:21
RoyKlinocisco: damn - where are you located?14:22
RoyKI don't think kvm/libvirt/virt-manager is much, though, perhaps a few megs14:23
linociscoRoyK, preferred not to say. but it is not expensive internet14:23

ren0v0hi, when partitioning a disk, is it possible to control partition numbers? im trying to create a new partition and its calling it #5 ?16:52
quanticren0v0: You're creating a logical partition on an MBR formatted disk.16:54
quanticren0v0: That's normal. Primary partitions are 1-4. Extended/logical/whatever are 5+.16:54
ren0v0ok thanks :D16:55
lordievaderYou could choose to go with gpt instead.16:55

linociscohow to edit grub file ? on boot, splash menu is so fast and I can't go into advanced options17:03
lordievaderlinocisco: vim /etc/default/grub|/etc/grub.d/*?17:06
lordievaderThen run 'sudo update-grub2'.17:07
lordievaderlinocisco: Err, hello?17:45
linociscoi have problem with grub17:46
linociscoto change bigger fonts in CLI17:47
lordievaderGrub has little to do with how fonts are rendered in tty's.17:47
linociscolordievader, https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2932&sid=bc3bdda5c4cbb8bc4d4c7144e290f5dc17:49
linociscolordievader, that trick fixed my fonts on ubuntu server version before17:49
linociscolordievader, now I can't find that file. grub.cfg has no such line17:49
lordievaderYou don't want to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg directly.17:51
lordievaderWhat trick are you referring to?17:51
linociscolordievader, in the grub file, I need to find such line "kernel /vmlinuz-2.6-whatever ro root=/lots-of-numbers, KEYTABLE=us rhgb quet"17:52
linociscoand add nomodeset at the end . that fixed my problem with smaller fonts on CLI17:53
lordievaderlinocisco: That is /etc/default/grub.17:54
bekkslordievader: Which he states does not exist for him.17:55
linociscobekks lordievader i swear I had used that trick17:56
linociscoso what is your trick to make smaller fonts in CLI to make it biggger?17:56
lordievaderIf that file ain't there grub is not installed.17:57
linocisconot only in CLI, also should be bigger in grub boot loader menu lines and font at boot time17:57
lordievaderlinocisco: What is the output of 'dpkg -l|grep grub'?17:57
bekkslinocisco: So that file existed. What did you do to it so it doesnt exist anymore?17:57
lordievaderSounds like a driver not handeling modesetting properly.17:57
linociscogrub-common, grub-gfxpayload-lists grub-pc grub-pc-bin grub2-common17:58

linociscoi formatted HDD and reinstall with 14.04.2 x6417:59
linociscobefore was 32bit17:59
bekkslinocisco: Whats the output of "ls -lha /etc/default/grub"?18:00
* lordievader thought grub-pc or grub-common delivered /etc/default/grub18:00
linociscobekks, -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.2K Aug22 23:57 /etc/defult/grub18:02
lordievaderSo it does exist...18:02
bekksSo that file exists - whats the problem now?18:02
linociscolet say what I have done to fix small fonts problem is wrong. ok? how do you fix if I were you?18:03
bekksLets say you fix your first issue first.18:03
linociscobekks,  I am looking for the correct file and correct line and correct place to add that "nomodeset"18:03
bekks!nomodeset | linocisco18:04
ubottulinocisco: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter18:04
linociscobekks, thanks. finally Got it. that is what I am asking so long18:08
bekksYou have een clued multiple times on how to do it, bt you ignored all clues.18:08
linociscobekks, what I need is only that link "http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132"18:09
linociscocorrect ubuntu way18:09
bekksYou were told how to do it the ubuntu way multiple times.18:10
bekksWhatever - did you fix it now?18:10
linociscobekks, done. I didn't understand before I got that link because I am looking for that desired file18:11
lordievaderYes, and you were given that file several times.18:12
linociscolordievader, I didn't see. i m sorry18:12
bekksAnd that link, too.18:12
bekkslinocisco: You must have been ignoring clues the whole day then...18:13
linociscobekks , I was being told /etc/default/grub. many times, but I dont know exactly where in which line to edit18:14
linociscosorry for your time and my time. have a nice day18:14
bekksYou have benn told multiple times.18:14
linociscothanks anyway . done18:16
linociscohi all, what is the recommended updated ubuntu server book?18:29
linociscowith most common troubleshooting real world examples18:29
bekkslinocisco: The online documentation. Printed documentation is out of date before you read it.18:29
lordievaderThe best way to learn is to use it.18:45
linociscolordievader, somewhat correct. but level of knowledge is not the same for everyone.18:46
bekkslinocisco: you dont need the same level for learning by doing :)18:47
lordievaderHence the learning ;)18:47
