03:46syntaxman I'm using a 2.4 kernel in my linode. It's a Debian installation... What do I need to do to prepare it for one of the 2.6 kernels?
03:47syntaxman Can I just select the new kernel? Or do I need to do a load of homework first?
04:01fo0bar syntaxman: woody?
04:03fo0bar sarge is pretty easy, just "apt-get install kernel-image-2.6-686" (for linode the kernel itself isn't needed, but that will also bring the needed dependencies up to date)
04:03fo0bar woody I would imagine is harder (I haven't done it myself)... the linode forums would be the best bet

07:36gxt So, I just got my Linode this weekend.
07:37gxt Every time I emerge it to 2004.3, it has serious problems.
07:37gxt Is this normal?
07:37gxt Is there a special trick or technique to updating a Linode?
07:38adamg what command are you running
07:38gxt emerge --update --deep --newuse world
07:38--- <<-- david [~dcoulson@muffin.davidcoulson.net] has quit (Ping timeout: 480 seconds)
07:42adamg what problems do you hit?
07:43gxt After the update completed (which took like 12 hours), I could no longer login via ssh.
07:44--- <<-- bendy24 [~slb@bendy.netrep.oftc.net] has quit (Ping timeout: 480 seconds)
07:44gxt It also doesn't boot correctly.
07:44gxt Specifically...
07:44adamg can boot errors do you get?
07:45gxt It says that it can't find /lib/modules/2.6.10-linode11/modules.dep
07:45gxt And then it asks me if I want to enter maintenance mode.
07:46adamg try booting with a 2.4 kernel
07:46gxt That's a good thought...
07:46gxt I'll try that...

07:52--- ---> TehDan [~dan@flexo.area-52.org.uk] has joined #linode
07:52gxt Well, it's doing the same thing. It doesn't seem to be reading the disk image correctly. The error is... "The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2"
07:53gxt When I log into maintenance mode as root, /dev/udba doesn't exist. Also, the node has no outside network access.
07:53gxt Hmmm...
07:54gxt I gotta' get to work. I'll check back in later. Thanks for your assistance adamg. :-)

12:45greenlava my linode is fine too
12:45greenlava linode.com is sometimes fast, sometime struggling
12:45greenlava tough to get a connection...possible DOS?
12:46_3DSHROOM my connection seems fine here, but the box I'm on has gotten so much slower than when I first signed up
12:46adamg yeah thats what it looks like
12:48rafx my ping to www.linode.com is around 45ms (pretty fast), but the web server doesn't respond at all
12:49adamg different ports, so possible an attack at apache
12:50rafx wonder if caker is running mod_dosevasive. it doesn't stop dos attacks but supposedly helps a decent amount
12:50greenlava well that sucks
12:51greenlava does linode.com share a box with any other linodes?
12:52adamg no
12:57_3DSHROOM anyone else run gentoo on their linode?
12:57* NeonNero does
12:57adamg yes
12:57_3DSHROOM do you have the cheapest account? or a better one?
12:58NeonNero cheapest one
12:58_3DSHROOM does your server ever really lag when you emerge sync?
12:58_3DSHROOM I run a good bit of programs on mine but things get REALLY slow even just doing a sync, not even compiling
12:58SupaDongzu heh
12:58SupaDongzu that'd be the I/O limiter
12:59SupaDongzu gentoo is *really* not suited to linodes
12:59_3DSHROOM yeah
12:59_3DSHROOM it was fine at first
12:59SupaDongzu anyway, you'll find the old style sync to be better than rsync for a linode
12:59--- ---> array [~danny@CPE-139-168-150-115.nsw.bigpond.net.au] has joined #linode
12:59SupaDongzu since you won't be thrashing all over disk running checksums
12:59array Sup all..
13:00_3DSHROOM what do you mean by old style sync
13:00SupaDongzu I forget what the command was, as I don't have my gentoo box handy
13:00SupaDongzu but there's a way to just do a flat download or rdist or something
13:00SupaDongzu it's in the man page
13:00SupaDongzu or the --help
13:00array Why is bandwidth so expensive?
13:01array 200$ p/mnth for 300GB
13:01EFudd hey, you come from .au where bandwidth is metered worse than that.
13:01array no shit
13:01array thats why I buy US servers
13:01SupaDongzu haha
13:01EFudd so stop complaing? :)
13:02array but my previous provider gave me 1000GB for $69 :P
13:02EFudd switch back?
13:02_3DSHROOM I bet their uptime sucked tho
13:02EFudd I bet it was Cogent. :)
13:02array no, their uptime rocked
13:02array but I like theplanet
13:02EFudd then switch back.
13:02EFudd :)
13:02array and I like the linode's owner
13:02EFudd then stay.
13:02array down to earth mofo
13:02array I want to
13:03array but why is bandwidth so expensive
13:03EFudd then leave.
13:03* EFudd bounces around
13:03EFudd bandwidth isn't cheap
13:03EFudd your last provder was cogent, no? :)
13:03_3DSHROOM you must mean 1000GB total, $70 for 1000GB uploaded is different
13:03array managed.com
13:03array I want 1000GB total
13:03EFudd buy from managed
13:03array I don't want to buy another server
13:03array I've had 4 and bills were killing me
13:04array thats why I went UML
13:04adamg I know several providers that gived 1000gig plus at low prices, but they can afford to that, if caker hit there level, then the bw prices will probably drop
13:04EFudd regardless, bandwidth isn't cheap. most "omg 1TB of xfer" plans are cogent bandwidth meaning within their network, but charged for egress outside.
13:04EFudd bandwidth is not cheap, I say again. (with some exception.)
13:05array www.linode.com is down.
13:05EFudd cakers planning is a deal, effectively. you are charged the same for overages as you would for pre-purchase.
13:05array that kinda sucks though :/
13:05* EFudd begins to care less
13:05array it's like you're getting penalty rates when buying in bulk
13:05adamg pre-purchases past a certain level do key cheaper than the overcharge
13:06EFudd oic.
13:06adamg thus the 300 gig for $200
13:06array there's no incentive to buy additional bandwidth if you're being charged penalty rates :(
13:07array and if you pay yearly, it's exactly the same as paying monthly
13:07adamg you arnt overage rates are $1 per gig
13:07EFudd i use UML cause gentoo is offered with virtual serial console access.
13:07EFudd no other reason.
13:08EFudd not price, not tech, not bandwidth, not even stability (which is decent)
13:08EFudd so array, just make up your mind, complaining doesn't fix anything, and stick with a choice. ktnx. HAND. HTH.
13:08array don't get me wrong, I've been overwhelmed with the service since setup
13:08array setup mind you was completed in a few hours
13:09array and complaining helps, because customer feedback is always good to the company
13:09adamg and it can take longer, all signups are manually checked
13:09EFudd complaining has limits. :)
13:09EFudd That is all.
13:10SupaDongzu complaining is always good, because everybody loves listening to complaints!
13:10_3DSHROOM The single reason I chose a linode was because they offered gentoo
13:10array there's no degree of complaining with you in here efudd, because you don't let anyone explain themselves..
13:10EFudd I seet he uselessness of the specific complaint. :)
13:10EFudd "omg gimme other pricing options for bandwidth damnit. <foo> gave me 1TB, why can't linode?! omgzomgzomgz."
13:10EFudd did I miss something?
13:10array Indeed.
13:10EFudd Fair enough.
13:10SupaDongzu If you give me your attention, I will tell you what I am:
13:10SupaDongzu I'm a genuine philanthropist -- all other kinds are sham.
13:10SupaDongzu Each little fault of temper and each social defect
13:10SupaDongzu In my erring fellow-creatures, I endeavour to correct.
13:10SupaDongzu To all their little weaknesses I open people's eyes;
13:10array I wanted an explaination.
13:10SupaDongzu And little plans to snub the self-sufficient I devise;
13:11SupaDongzu I love my fellow creatures -- I do all the good I can--
13:11array Not a discount.
13:11SupaDongzu Yet ev'rybody says I'm such a disagreeable man!
13:11SupaDongzu And I can't think why!
13:11* EFudd pets supa
13:11adamg array: caker has said before for significant bandwidth requirments he can supply different pricing, best thing to do is contact him
13:11SupaDongzu To compliments inflated I've a withering reply;
13:11SupaDongzu And vanity I always do my best to mortify;
13:11SupaDongzu A charitable action I can skillfully dissect;
13:11SupaDongzu And interested motives I'm delighted to detect;
13:11SupaDongzu I know ev'rybody's income and what ev'rybody earns;
13:11SupaDongzu And I carefully compare it with the income-tax returns;
13:11array I wanted to know why bandwidth here was so expensive in comparism to other providers, not to be attacked.
13:11SupaDongzu But to benefit humanity however much I plan,
13:11SupaDongzu Yet ev'rybody says I'm such a disagreeable man!
13:11SupaDongzu And I can't think why!
13:11EFudd array, i toldja. Because bandwidth outside of a network is not cheap. :)
13:12EFudd the "1TB" options are often underlined with sekrets like "but not egress through <foo>. only inside the above.net peers (which is manageds' colo
13:12EFudd )
13:12SupaDongzu I'm sure I'm no ascetic; I'm as pleasant as can be;
13:12SupaDongzu You'll always find me ready with a crushing repartee,
13:12SupaDongzu I've an irritating chuckle, I've a celebrated sneer,
13:12SupaDongzu I've an entertaining snigger, I've a fascinating leer.
13:12SupaDongzu To ev'rybody's prejudice I know a thing or two;
13:12adamg the main reason they are the price they are is because caker does not use the level of bandwidth that gets him lower pricing. When he starts using more bandwidth his pricing will come down
13:12SupaDongzu I can tell a woman's age in half a minute -- and I do.
13:12SupaDongzu But although I try to make myself as pleasant as I can,
13:12_3DSHROOM with as many accounts as linode hosts, you would think he would be able to get better rates than they do
13:12SupaDongzu Yet ev'rybody says I'm such a disagreeable man!
13:12SupaDongzu And I can't think why!
13:13SupaDongzu I wish I had an ogg of that
13:13SupaDongzu King Gama would have been a tech support nightmare
13:13adamg _3DSHROOM: the accounts are spread over to different DCs thus usage is spread so prices dont lower that quickly
13:14_3DSHROOM DC's?
13:14adamg datacenters
13:14_3DSHROOM o
13:14_3DSHROOM how many
13:14adamg cakers bw pricing has lowered since he started linode
13:14EFudd if i wanted more bandwidth, i'd probably conceed on my gentoo requirement and use another provider. That's my simple point. :)
13:14adamg 2
13:15_3DSHROOM surely each DC uses at least 10 mbit sustained
13:16adamg no idea
13:16_3DSHROOM I used to host a single site than used 1 mbit
13:16_3DSHROOM er
13:16_3DSHROOM 2
13:16_3DSHROOM $125 per mbit
13:16_3DSHROOM you get up to 10 -20 tho
13:16adamg IIRC he gets charged by the gig, at both DC, one by the actual usage, the other by the 95 percentile rule
13:16_3DSHROOM and you get much better rates
13:16EFudd $125/mbit is waaaaaaaaay pricey :)
13:16EFudd adam, yeah, sounds right.
13:16EFudd HE is 95th, iirc.
13:17adamg thought that was TP
13:17_3DSHROOM this was 95th too, but also in a VERY nice colo facility
13:17EFudd hrm.
13:17* EFudd shrug
13:17_3DSHROOM 1/2 a rack
13:17_3DSHROOM private
13:17_3DSHROOM always up
13:18EFudd oh
13:18EFudd also
13:18EFudd some of those "1000GB" plans have sekret line-items that limit the line-speed to say, oh, 3MBit :)
13:19EFudd or whatever number equals out to ~= 1000GB/month.
13:19EFudd ie, keeps their pricing down on a 95th based colo service.

14:43tizen hey, i can't seem to access the site through http. I can through https, but I was wondering if it was a local problem or if others had experienced it?
14:44greenlava yup...looks like a DOS attack
14:44tizen k cool.
14:47tizen I'm just looking at the service. If the system gets stuck in a loop, how do I get a reboot? And how much does it cost?
14:47Redgore reboots of your linode are free, you do them yourself
14:48tizen How?
14:48Redgore you sign into the control panel and press the reboot button
14:48tizen cool.
14:50tizen so, if i sign up with my credit card tonight, what timeframe am I looking at for access to my system
14:51Redgore 24hr's at most, mine got activated within minutes, it all depends on when caker is able to check the sign up's
14:52tizen cool

16:03NeonNero still no dice on reaching www.linode.com
16:03rafx www.linode.com has been acting up this afternoon. responds to pings very quickly but the web server is sloooooow or timing out this afternoon.
16:04NeonNero exactly
16:04npmr another hosting company that i do busines with is also having problems
16:04rafx if you just need to shutdown/reboot, then Lish still works great. if you need to resize drive images, your SOL until the website is responsive
16:04npmr theirs isn't completely unresponsive, but it's so slow right now that it might as well be
16:05rafx so it isn't linode-specific? is there a massive http-attacking worm loose right now?
16:05npmr i don't know if it's just a coincidence or what
16:06npmr traceroute says that they're on opposite coasts
