00:14NetWolf mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/ubdd,

11:27chapter3 how long was it per gig for the move? i missed it
11:31@caker chapter3: it should be pretty quick .. maybe just a few min/gig
11:31chapter3 10 minutes and counting
11:31@caker although there is another migration going through the switch, at the moment
11:31chapter3 disk image was only 4GB i believe
11:32chapter3 ahh, maybe that's why the shutdown took so long
11:33@caker chapter3: no, it wouldn't have affected that
11:34chapter3 13 minutes
11:34chapter3 strange
11:34@caker why?
11:35@caker sighup: 4096/11/60
11:35@sighup 6.20606060606061
11:35chapter3 it moved the 256MB swap disk in 35 seconds
11:35@caker yeah .. 6 min at full switch speeed (which you're not going to get), double it since it was sharing b/w with another migration
11:35chapter3 okie dokie
11:35chapter3 (what's the 11 btw?)
11:36@caker 11M == 100Mbit/sec
11:36@caker roughly

11:41chapter3 eh?
11:42@caker chapter3: df -h
11:42@caker chapter3: compare that to the unallocated space listed in the LPM
11:43chapter3 hmm
11:43chapter3 what do i do?
11:43chapter3 (were these instructions on the migration page and i missed it?)
11:43@caker chapter3: shutdown, click on Disk Images tab, click on the disk image you want to resize, enter new size, hit submit, reboot
11:43@caker chapter3: no, they're not on the migration page
11:44chapter3 ok cool, g/f is making me run to store, brb, and i'll resize :)
11:44@caker roger
11:45* adamg remebers why some people do not like linux now
11:45@caker adamg: what's up?
11:45adamg linode is spoiling me
11:46adamg it has been so long since I have had to compile kernels etc, it is getting to be fecking hard work
11:46adamg I have also been spending to long admining windows systems
11:50@caker adamg: why do you need a custom kernel?
11:50--- <<-- claviola [claviola@claviola.user.oftc.net] has quit (Ping timeout: 480 seconds)
11:52adamg network cards mainly

13:02chapter3 oh yeah, how would i prevent people from doing a wget (or something similar) on my site? i would think i would use my robots.txt
13:03adamg it was for a network card I had no idea what chipset it was so I just built the lot as modules
13:04adamg you cant, as long as the data they want to accessible then they can get it
13:04chapter3 i thought i remember somebody mentioned that the agent would report wget, and you could block on that?
13:05adamg the robots file is only looked at by robots and then only the ones who decided to do as the file says
13:05adamg you could do, but that can be fecked
13:05adamg block it in .htaccess
13:09@caker chapter3: wget can easily fake referer and user agent
13:10* adamg knew he had spelt that wrong
13:13chapter3 ahh hmm, so how would i block it in .htaccess?
13:15adamg roll on 7 oclock

13:36adamg oh yeah that silly thanks giving thing
13:39vaxen can someone help me with bnc
13:39vaxen it loads fine, but I can't connect to it
13:40@caker vaxen: is it listening on any ports?
13:40tjfontaine adamg: pong
13:40vaxen caker: 10002
13:40@caker vaxen: ok .. can you connect to it from localhost?
13:40vaxen netstat -l shows nothing
13:41vaxen i can't
13:41adamg fecking debian mirrors have died
13:42vaxen 13:41 -!- Irssi: Unable to connect server 127.0.0.1 port 10002 [Connection refused
13:42vaxen netstat -l shows no listening port on 10002
13:42@caker vaxen: netstat -pln should show it, and you should be able to telnet 127.0.0.1 10002 and at least get a banner
13:43vaxen thats shows nothing either
13:45vaxen any idea why its not working?
13:46tjfontaine use irssi proxy
13:49vaxen tjfontaine: i can, but thats not the point
13:49vaxen i dont understand why bnc wont bind a port
13:49vaxen even running as root it wont bind
13:49adamg can you run it in verbose mode to view any errors
13:50vaxen bnc has no verbose

13:52vaxen it is listening, but why ip is all 0 ?
13:52@caker vaxen: it means it's listening on all IPs
13:59vaxen got it working
13:59vaxen but for some unknown reason, my configuration is for port 10002 but it binds to 1056
13:59vaxen any idea why this is?
14:01@caker vaxen: config syntax wrong?
14:31chapter3 anybody on host30?
14:31@caker chapter3: me -- you're not on host30 any more though
14:31chapter3 :) can you paste the output from "who"
14:31chapter3 from 30 that is
14:32@caker chapter3: just me
14:32@caker chapter3: however, you are on Lish on host34
14:32chapter3 i know, but i need the literal output, i have a script that awk's the output from certain commands (this one calculates number of users), and it seems to have changed from 30 to 34
14:32chapter3 root@girls [/opt/lampp/SystemStats2]# who
14:32chapter3 kev tty0 Nov 28 08:59
14:33chapter3 does it match that, 3 columns?
14:33@caker chapter3: no, there are four (last one is host)
14:33chapter3 ah ha
14:33chapter3 that's odd
14:33@caker root pts/4 Oct 7 21:28 (host4.linode.com)
14:33@caker chapter3: if you're logged in via console, I think the last column is missing (since there is no remote host)
14:34chapter3 well the script is run in a cron
14:35chapter3 ahh i see what you mean about that

15:02vaxen nickfury: yes
15:02vaxen nickfury: you might want to try freenx
15:02vaxen its alot faster then vnc

15:03vaxen if you want to use vnc, use tightvnc
15:03nickfury vaxen
15:03nickfury have you set up a debian box on linodes?
15:03vaxen the only bad thing about freenx is that you have to pay for the nxserver software
15:03vaxen nickfury: i use gentoo
15:04nickfury oh you do eh
15:04nickfury did you install webmin?
15:04vaxen nope

15:08nickfury but i just kinda need to know how to get to that interface

15:24nickfury how do you edit in vi
15:25nickfury i'm so used to pico

15:25chapter3 you can use nano
15:25chapter3 and if that's not installed, apt-get install nano
15:25chapter3 nano is similar to pico

15:29nickfury question guys
15:29nickfury One last step, edit /usr/src/linux/.config
15:29nickfury this file is a new file for me
15:29nickfury should it be?
15:29@caker nickfury: ignore that -- you can't use custom kernels
15:29nickfury hrrm ok
15:29adamg just seems better at the momment
15:29nickfury i tried running my firehol then
15:29@caker nickfury: ignore that, and anything to do with modules
15:29nickfury but i get an error
15:30nickfury ./firehol.sh start
15:30nickfury when i type tha
15:30@caker nickfury: what's the error?
15:30nickfury ERROR: Command 'lsmod' not found in the system path.
15:30nickfury FireHOL requires this command for its operation.
15:30nickfury Please install the required package and retry.
15:31adamg since there are no modules that command is rather pointless
15:31@caker nickfury: apt-cache search lsmod, then install it
15:31@caker mod-utils, or somthing like that
15:31@caker but yeah, it is pointless, but might get the script running
15:32nickfury hrrm
15:32nickfury stil lcan't find thos packages
15:32nickfury wierd
15:32chapter3 modutils
15:32chapter3 nickfury: read some more of that thread ;)
15:32chapter3 the second post on there details the exact error you are getting
15:33nickfury word

15:42vaxen any idea why my ssh session dies after idling for a while?
15:42* adamg was going to do something but cant remeber what it was
15:42adamg keep-alive to probably not set
15:42vaxen whats the config syntax for that?
15:44@caker vaxen: try: echo 1500 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_time
15:44@caker vaxen: or add "net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive = 1500" to /etc/sysctl.conf, and then sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf
15:44@caker vaxen: the latter does it each boot
15:45@caker location of sysctl.conf might be different
15:46vaxen thanks
15:46vaxen 1500 is minutes?
15:46@caker vaxen: seconds, I believe
15:47vaxen how do I set it unlimited?
15:47vaxen donno how long emerge --update world is gonna take
15:47@caker vaxen: ? that settings sends a keepalive packet every 1500 seconds
15:47vaxen ahh..thanks
15:48vaxen error: 'net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive' is an unknown key
15:50@caker vaxen: 2.4 kernel, right?
15:50vaxen 2.6
15:51@caker net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time
15:51@caker for 2.6

17:33nickfury ahh
17:33nickfury thanks
17:39nickfury i guess i have a pretty... simple question
17:39nickfury does having debian installed as the distro really differ from say having the server with gnetoo
17:39nickfury or fedora?
17:40nickfury are there really alot of pros and cons?
17:40vaxen try them and see
17:41vaxen debian == stable
17:41vaxen gentoo == lots of compile
17:41nickfury yea
17:41vaxen fedora == dont like it

17:41nickfury i remember my last compile of gentoo was above 22 hours
17:41nickfury but that was a whle ago
17:41nickfury i've forgotten alot now
17:41vaxen i am doing an glibc upgrade on linode
17:41vaxen its taking forever
17:42nickfury no doubt
17:42nickfury i'm just trying to get my feet based on nmy new server here
17:42nickfury and getting web services up
17:42nickfury so i can put my domains over.
17:42nickfury that's my main objective :)
17:42nickfury so .. i kinda hvae to take it slow at first like always
17:42vaxen use debian then
17:42chapter3 i used to use fedora on my desktop, then switched to ubuntu (debian), and i fell in love, then i got my linode, and i used deb on it as well, and it's been great
17:43nickfury i guess my only other question is .. does debian and it's install preconfigure with all the nesecceary connetions?
17:43nickfury so i can just start compiling web services and stuff without changing any conf's?
17:43nickfury ubuntu?
17:43@linbot hmm... ubuntu is quite nice for a new user or designed for the desktop not server tj, nickfury
17:43vaxen chapter3: is ubuntu exactly the same as debian?
17:43chapter3 not exactly
17:43SupaDongzu not quite
17:43chapter3 it's a debian base
17:43nickfury !google ubuntu
17:43@linbot nickfury: Search took 0.562238 seconds: Ubuntu Linux - Welcome to Ubuntu Linux: <http://www.ubuntulinux.org/>; Ubuntu Linux - Download: <http://www.ubuntulinux.org/download/>; UBUNTU - World Forum of Networks: <http://www.ubuntu.upc.es/>; Ubuntu Edunet interactive distance learning and training: <http://home.intekom.com/ubuntu/>; LWN: Ubuntu Traffic #10: (2 more messages)
17:43vaxen configuration the same?
17:43SupaDongzu it's a polished GNOME showcase based on debian
17:43SupaDongzu it's very debian
17:44SupaDongzu it's just friendlier
17:44SupaDongzu much friendlier
17:44nickfury so it's an x windows thing
17:44nickfury ?
17:44SupaDongzu it's a distro
17:44SupaDongzu based on debian
17:44SupaDongzu that showcases the latest GNOME
17:44nickfury what's the pros and cons?
17:44nickfury do any of you guys have this installed on linodes?
17:44chapter3 it's updated ;)
17:44SupaDongzu I have only found pros so far
17:44SupaDongzu it's useless on linodes
17:44SupaDongzu just run debian for your servers
17:44nickfury well that is what i was asking :)
17:45nickfury does it just use gnome?
17:45vaxen "!?!$$!"?!?"!?
17:45vaxen liverpool beat Arsenal!!!!
17:45SupaDongzu I don't understand your question, nickfury
17:45nickfury neither do i
17:45nickfury forget i even speak :P
17:45@linbot I've never heard of i even speak :P, nickfury!
17:45nickfury i'm just n00bed up at the moment
17:45SupaDongzu it's a full distro,based on debian, and showcasing the latest GNOME
17:45chapter3 nickfury: i used to use fedora/kde, and i switched to ubuntu/gnome, and i love it
17:45SupaDongzu it's damn fine user-friendly desktop stuff
17:46nickfury nice
17:46vaxen i still prefer kde
17:46nickfury thanks for letting me know that
17:46SupaDongzu I heartily endorse it
17:46nickfury if i wanted to do a fresh reinstall
17:46chapter3 ubuntu/gnome is nothing like fedora/gnome :)
17:46vaxen ubuntu developers are gnome developers
17:46nickfury i could just ... do it from teh linodes control eh ?
17:47vaxen nickfury: yes
17:47nickfury k
17:48nickfury i would just delete the disk images correct?
17:48chapter3 that's what i do
17:48nickfury shutdown of course right?
17:48chapter3 yea
17:49chapter3 are you gonna do a fresh deb install following that guide?
17:49nickfury yep
17:49nickfury goign to try to
17:49nickfury wanna walk with me :)
17:49chapter3 cool, let me know how that goes, i'm gonna use parts of that hopefully tonight or tomorrow
17:49nickfury cool
17:50vaxen which dns server do you guys run?
17:50chapter3 only parts tho, because i'm gonna start over, but start with sarge, and go with apache2/php5/mysql4
17:50nickfury no where near that
17:50chapter3 i use zoneedit
17:51chapter3 zoneedit.com that is ;)
17:52vaxen chapter3: why pay for that service when you can run your self?
17:52chapter3 i don't pay
17:55vaxen chapter3: so you just web redirect to your linode?
17:55chapter3 no, you set the A record to your IP
17:56vaxen ahh
17:56vaxen will i be able to reverse resolv?
17:57nickfury wierd.
17:57nickfury i deleted the images
17:57nickfury and re-added the distro
17:57nickfury booted, now i can't connect.. hrrm
17:57chapter3 gotta first connect via root@ip
17:57nickfury i'm tryin to connect via ssh in putty
17:57nickfury right now
17:58nickfury and it won't let me connect :|
17:58nickfury timed out
17:58chapter3 how are you connecting?
17:58nickfury putty
17:58chapter3 i mean to where, your ip?
17:58nickfury to my ip
17:58nickfury yes
17:58chapter3 as root?
17:58nickfury the server ip i get
17:58nickfury yea
17:58nickfury i put root@ip
17:59chapter3 and your node is running?
17:59chapter3 (check the overview page)
17:59nickfury wtf.. it keeps turning off :)
17:59nickfury aight
18:01nickfury i think i see why
18:01nickfury the profile
18:01nickfury i have the os under
18:01nickfury under disk images
18:01nickfury there are none selected
18:01nickfury like /dev/udba
18:01nickfury like /dev/udbb
18:01nickfury is a the swap?
18:01nickfury and b the main parition
18:02chapter3 i use ubda as the distro image, and ubdb as my swap image
18:02nickfury i don't understand
18:02nickfury but every single time i go back to my overview plage
18:02nickfury err page
18:02chapter3 but if you wanna switch them that's fine, but you would need to change the "root device" section
18:02nickfury the computer is turned off
18:02chapter3 ok, go into your profile
18:03chapter3 (i'll walk u thru it)
18:03nickfury k
18:03@caker nickfury: You probably have more than one config profile now
18:03nickfury no
18:03nickfury i deleted them
18:03@caker nickfury: deleting the disk images doesn't delete the config
18:03nickfury now i just have one
18:03@caker k
18:03nickfury and it seems to be ok now
18:03@caker then you likely deleted the wrong one, if there were no images on the remaining one
18:03nickfury i just have root device as standard
18:03nickfury which makes sense
18:04nickfury i'll just delete configurations and images, and start over
18:04nickfury i'm such an idiot
18:12nickfury guys
18:12nickfury are there any other general good to have things install in debian?
18:12nickfury i'm just running through all the apt-get's now
18:13--- ---> emcnabb [~emcnabb@67.169.254.149] has joined #linode
18:13@caker nickfury: the base fs is _very_ minimal, so just install stuff as you need it
18:13nickfury k
18:13nickfury if i get module errrors
18:13nickfury that;s ok right
18:13nickfury because we can't run them
18:14@caker nickfury: on boot? yeah, ignore them -- everything is compiled into the kernel
18:14nickfury what about like loading firewalls
18:14nickfury and shit
18:14nickfury firehol
18:15@caker nickfury: if it expects stuff to be a module, that's bad coding, IMO
18:15@caker nickfury: nothing says things NEED to be a module -- they should have a different check to see if the kernel has support for certain functionality
18:15nickfury i guessi was just wondering because that guide was showing up some errors
18:16@caker nickfury: you can probably just edit whatever script that's having trouble, and commenting out that check
18:16@caker nickfury: that guide expects a modular kernel (the one from debian) .. so yeah, just skip that stuff
18:16nickfury ok i'll move on then
18:16nickfury i guess my goal is apache :)
18:16nickfury and some how getting htis webmin in
18:17nickfury which i'm guessing requires apache
18:17@caker nickfury: here's a tip -- Debian's version of webmin is pretty old
18:18@caker nickfury: I would apt-get remove it, and install the newest from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.170.tar.gz
18:18@caker [root@yourhost /tmp]# gunzip webmin-1.170.tar.gz
18:18@caker [root@yourhost /tmp]# tar xf webmin-1.170.tar
18:18@caker [root@yourhost /tmp]# cd webmin-1.170
18:18@caker [root@yourhost /tmp/webmin-1.170]# ./setup.sh /usr/local/webmin

20:45--- <<-- adamg [~misthos@i-194-106-39-170.freedom2surf.net] has quit (Ping timeout: 480 seconds)
20:46chapter3 i suppose if i add another partition to a configuration, it's not gonna show up until i reboot huh
20:46@caker chapter3: I can add it now, if you'd like
20:47chapter3 i added the new part to the config profile already (the Backup partition)
20:47@caker chapter3: ok -- add it to ubdc?
20:47chapter3 ya
20:47@caker chapter3: still logged into the LPM?
20:47chapter3 not anymore
20:48@caker no worries
20:48chapter3 well i just logged out, thought you needed me to logout :)
20:48chapter3 i'm back in
20:48@caker chapter3: should be able to mount it now
20:49chapter3 sweet, all set, thanks :)
20:49@caker np
20:50chapter3 gotta back everything up, gonna wipe out my deb part and re-install my webserver, getting away from using xampp/lampp
20:53chapter3 btw, is there a disadvantage to logging into a node with ssh user@ip rather than using lish? i prefer to login to my IP, because my terminal proggie won't do scrolling with lish
20:59irgeek chapter3: I can't think of a disadvantage to logging in directly. Logging in with lish is just using the console. I use it to watch the boot sequence sometimes, but that's about it.
20:59chapter3 ahh ok cool
20:59chapter3 i guess i'm ready, the last thing i need to do is backup my db
21:00chapter3 i'm used to using phpmyadmin, should i use a cli command instead?
21:00@caker chapter3: mysqldump works for me
21:00chapter3 well, apt-cache search mysqldump didn't return anything
21:01chapter3 lampp did install a version of mysqldump, but there's no man entry for it :\
21:01@caker (as root) mysqldump -p --all-databases > db.sql
21:01@caker ^-- should work
21:01@caker chapter3: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/mysqldump.html
21:02chapter3 sweet, looks like that worked
21:02@caker chapter3: copy your data files, just in case
21:03chapter3 well there are 16K lines in the .sql file, i think it got all the data, but where would those be?
21:04@caker erm .. on debian?
21:04chapter3 you mean all the domain.com.001, 002 files?
21:04chapter3 yeah deb
21:06@caker chapter3: dunno what those are .. look in /var/lib/mysql/ for debian
21:06chapter3 unfortunately it's lampp, so they aren't in that standard spot, but what would the filenames look like?
21:07chapter3 would each table have 3 files, table.MYD, .MYI, and .frm ?
21:07@caker chapter3: each database will be a directory, with three files for each table
21:07@caker chapter3: yeah
21:07chapter3 ahh ok
21:08chapter3 ok, let the fun begin :)
21:08chapter3 it's a race, the site is now down, gotta get it backup asap :D
21:09@caker chapter3: Go1
21:09@caker !
21:09chapter3 (i have to delete the partition to remove the os, correct?)
21:10@caker chapter3: delete the partition, and the config profile
21:11chapter3 ahh, forgot it creates a profile too :)
21:12chapter3 that's just the best, 31 seconds for an distro "install" :D
21:17chapter3 goin with sarge too :)
21:20chapter3 hmm, i hope this isn't trying to install an X daemon :\
21:20nickfury guys if i wanna wget a file

21:29nickfury it shows an adapter
21:30npmr "UP" or not?
21:30npmr line three of the output

21:52nickfury ok this is my thing
21:52nickfury the hostname
21:52nickfury what exactly does that suggest
21:52nickfury nothing more than a name right?
21:52chapter3 well, i set my hostname to my primary domain name
21:52nickfury because i don't have any specific domainname attached to this
21:52npmr nickfury, http://movealong.org/hostname.html

21:59vaxen I just used zoneedit as my dns server
21:59vaxen do i need to change anything on my box?
22:02vaxen do I need to change my resolv.conf?
22:05chapter3 i just did a fresh install, only thing related to my domain was i changed my hostname, not even sure that's necessary with a proper apache setup
22:06vaxen chapter3: do you use zoneedit?
22:06vaxen do I need to change my resolv.conf to point to zoneedit nameserver?
22:06chapter3 yes i use zone edit
22:06chapter3 no you shouldn't need to edit resolv.conf
22:07vaxen if i come one irc, will my domain be the new domain, instead of linode?
22:07vaxen s/one/on
22:08chapter3 it would most likely be what your hostname is set to
22:08@caker vaxen: only if you change reverse dns
22:08@caker vaxen: use the Reverse DNS Manager link off the LPM overview page
22:09vaxen caker: you lost me
22:09@caker vaxen: log into the LPM (linode.com/members)
22:09@caker vaxen: then click on "Reverse DNS Manager"
22:09chapter3 grr
22:10chapter3 include("/opt/lampp/htdocs/
22:10chapter3 i need to replace that
22:10chapter3 that darn forward slashes are screwing me up with grep
22:10chapter3 oh wait a second haha
22:11vaxen caker: I dont need to change anything on my box?
22:11@caker vaxen: for reverse DNS? No.
22:11@caker vaxen: but, the RDNS manager only lets you set the reverse to a name that forwards to your IP already .. :)
22:12chapter3 why does egrep lampp * work but egrep m/lampp/ * not work?
22:16vaxen i guess i got to wait
