zmoylan-pii have bought a copy of playboy, it had a new short story by one of my favourite authors in it.  an a.c.clarke story.00:03
diddledanyeah mean they print intellectual literature?00:17
zmoylan-pisome important news and literature was printed there.  but we only remember the nudity now00:18
diddledanI wonder how much faster I can make my raid array by actually thinking about things like stride and stripe width of the filesystem and array01:00
diddledanatm the ext4 system is set to 128/128 for stride/stripe whereas it should ideally be 128/384 (4 discs, raid5)01:01
diddledanand the raid5 stripe width is 512K01:02
diddledanthat is ofc if my maths is correct01:02
diddledanthe block size of ext4 is 4k so 4*128 = 51201:03
diddledanref: https://raid.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/RAID_setup#Options_for_mke2fs01:03
diddledanmaybe while I'm rebuilding it I should butter it?01:04
diddledanwhat's the current consensus over btrfs?01:04
diddledanhas there been a delay in getting wily release candidate out the door?01:42
diddledanor are we not doing rc's?01:42
diddledanthe release schedule says it should have landed on thursday01:42
diddledanodd. this page contradicts that tho: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WilyWerewolf/ReleaseTaskSignup01:43
zmoylan-pioct 16 for release candidate according to http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/10/05/ubuntu_15_10_beta_two_review/02:24
zmoylan-pimaybe theyre counting with west coast usa time zone...02:24
zmoylan-pistill only 1925 there...02:25
* diddledan watches the clock02:37
zmoylan-piyou should get a soviet clock and you'd never be lonely again :-P02:58
diddledanin soviet russia, time clocks you (upside the head, then ties lead weights to your ankles, and throws you in the river)02:59
zmoylan-pino no that's only if you touch their car... http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/16/russian-driver-throws-pedestrian-into-canal-for-touching-car03:01
diddledan(that's actually a paraphrase from Terry Pratchett referring to Ankh Morpork: "In some parts of the city, curiosity didn't just kill the cat, it threw it in the river with lead weights tied to its feet.")03:01
zmoylan-pibut in ankh morpork that would just slow the cat down as it tried to run across the surface...03:04
zmoylan-piis it sad that i think the soviet pcs on this site look cooler than modern pcs... http://rbth.co.uk/multimedia/pictures/2014/04/07/before_the_internet_top_11_soviet_pcs_3571103:46
diddledanyeah, but you like ancient tech as evidenced by your dumbphone fetish03:47
zmoylan-piyou say that like it's a bad thing :-)03:48
diddledanhow do you expect to get hacked when you run obsolete technology that modern haxx0rs haven't even heard of?!03:48
zmoylan-pithey'll just at the 5.25" floppy and their malware laden usb drive :-D03:49
zmoylan-pi*just look03:49
diddledanI've got a 5.25" floppy drive hooked up to this pc03:49
diddledanvia usb03:49
zmoylan-pii remember around 2000 my boss issuing an edict to ditch every 5.25" drive in the office, we were done, no more 5.25".03:51
zmoylan-piso we recycled the last 2-3 pcs that had them.03:51
zmoylan-pithe very next day i had to restore a backup from 5.25"...03:52

foobarry2) random reboots while doing things while walking between wifi<->3g10:18
SuperEngineerInteresting.. tried the real nvdia [tested, not with updates] driver. Window moves / resizes were jerky, no real improvement in Steam games frame rate. Now back to using Nouveau.  Life is good again.12:13
zmoylan-piwe need to get linus to send another message to nvidia? :-)12:15
zmoylan-pior for halloween we could get 50 geeks dressed as linus to stand outside their hq12:22

AzelphurHey folks, just installed Xubuntu 15.10, added xorg edgers and installed nvidia-340. It doesn't seem to be working. I get an error in xorg.log which isn't so useful. http://paste.ubuntu.com/12817788/ any ideas?12:46
popeylooks like the driver didn't get built13:03
AzelphurI just realised 340 isn't the latest, I believe 352 is? trying with that as we speak13:04
diddledandid you reboot?13:04
diddledanis dkms missing perhaps?13:05
Azelphuraha, 352 fixed it, my bad13:05
AzelphurI did apt-cache search nvidia and picked the newer one, for some reason the nvidia drivers show up in two separate groups in the results13:06
AzelphurI'm getting some real bizarre behaviour, I just got my new monitors in, I thought perhaps a fresh install would solve it but nope13:08
AzelphurI occasionally can't type at all on the login screen (so I can't login) and I have one monitor flickering on and off sometimes13:09
AzelphurI can't even ctrl+alt+F1, although I can alt+sysreq+b13:10
Azelphurwoa I think I got it working, I had a brain wave and realised that I'd swapped out everything except one thing, the DP cable.13:51
Azelphurnow everything seems to be magically working13:52
