00:00SupaDongzu the least you could do is make aliases for ! and !! and !!! and so on
00:00@caker SupaDongzu: that's what you (I) get for suggesting I upgrade
00:00--- ---> npmr [] has joined #linode
00:00npmr linbot, roulette
00:00@linbot npmr: *click*
00:00SupaDongzu I really hate it when linbot msgs me and says "GOSH I DO NOT KNOW WHAT YU MEAN BY !!!!!!"
00:00@caker I should probably downgrade him
00:01SupaDongzu hahahaha
00:01SupaDongzu nooooo
00:01tierra|h probably actually have seen it about 20 times now... aired it on Defcon Movie Channel, it was one of the small clips we were using during the development of the script would pick filler at random and play it
00:01@caker why?
00:01SupaDongzu you were running a pre-release
00:01@caker this version is buggy
00:03@caker I don't get why they would break infobot/etc and then release the final version
00:03SupaDongzu they don't like infobot
00:04SupaDongzu they like their other factoid modules better
00:04@caker which? megaoid or something?
00:04SupaDongzu no, not moobot
00:04SupaDongzu just one of the others
00:05* caker looks
00:07@caker while I'm bitching, I don't like the new site, either
00:07chris_ What new site?
00:07* chris_ isn't following the conversation
00:08chris_ ah

02:59jdub hi all
03:00jdub jdub from ubuntu :)
03:01jdub anyone i can chat to from linode?
03:01jdub re sales/marketing
03:21jasonf jdub: caker is the guru for linode
03:21jdub thanks :)
03:21jasonf but most of us users know a lot about it all, so you might as well ask what you gotta ask
03:21jasonf or post to the forum @
03:21jdub it's, er, boring corporate stuff :)
03:21guinea-plow oh no, not another jdub
03:22guinea-plow how many of you ARE there?!
03:22jasonf jdub: I presume it's got something to do with him using your distro in a new distro image he released today?
03:22jdub that was only *today*?
03:23jasonf ur
03:23jasonf it was announced today
03:23jdub wow
03:23jdub rad
03:23jasonf Posted: Wed Jan 26, 2005 2:30 pm Post subject: Distro: Ubuntu 4.10 now available
03:23jdub was just chatting to a friend who hosts on linode, she was thinking of requesting a warty image, then it turned out there was one there :)
03:23jasonf what's the question you have?
03:23jdub heh, that's serendipitous :)
03:23jasonf if nothing else, I can tell you if email / forums / irc is the best place to ask it
03:24jdub boring corporate stuff, need a contact within linode
03:24guinea-plow heh
03:24tierra the suggestion popped about a week ago... then caker just up and did it...
03:24guinea-plow you talk like linode is some big corporation
03:24jdub will chat to caker/peer at the website
03:24jasonf caker is the only guy at linode
03:24guinea-plow caker is the MAN
03:24jasonf owner/operator/guru
03:25jdub tierra: much demand for it around the linode community?
03:25tierra don't get anyone wrong, Linode is pretty big, but it's all run by one guy: caker
03:25jasonf he just has an awesome network setup
03:25jasonf a lot of automation
03:25tierra jdub, well, everyone here already has their distro of choice installed, it's mostly for those that need something like linode, and are big on Ubuntu
03:26jasonf I use Debian Sarge :)
03:26jasonf on my linode
03:26jasonf WXP/Debian SID on my desktop
03:26jasonf so I'm related ;)
03:26jdub heh
03:26* tierra is actually booted into Ubuntu right now =)
03:26guinea-plow ooOOoo
03:28tierra jdub, where was the Ubuntu Linode announcement (not the one on, I've been waiting to see it, and still don't see it
03:29jasonf tierra: on the linode forums
03:29jasonf in the announce forum
03:30jdub tierra: one from ubuntu? dude, no one knows; i only found out by chance
03:30jasonf oh, nevermind
03:30tierra (not the one on
03:30jdub tierra: so would like to sort out some cross-marketing action with caker ;)
03:30tierra oh... I had heard someone was going to put up an announcement on or
03:31jasonf jdub: I'm like the #3 guy in marketing on the US East Coast :-D
03:31guinea-plow oh god, this is dreadfully boring
03:31jasonf I got a sponsored trip to the OOo RegiCon in San Diego
03:31jasonf it's starting in 2 weeks :-D
03:31tierra jdub, some cross-marketing?
03:32tierra jdub, you come here from word from dataw0lf?

06:20Narada Anyone home?
06:21Narada I've posted a support ticket and I've emailed about the same issue but have received no response for what seems like weeks. I'm a little worried about why my requests are not being responded to.
06:34Narada !seen caker

11:18tizen Hey caker, if I bought my account yesterday. Do I get a new 25gb of transfer on Feb first?
11:18adamg yes
11:20tizen Wow, that's perfect
11:20tizen time to install all the packages :)
11:21@caker 25 GB of packages? :)
11:23npmr that's the entire i386 debian archive
11:23npmr plus some
11:23@caker honestly, why are people even concerned with a local mirror. It's not like pulling updates down during one month uses even a few hundred MB
11:24tizen caker: Well, obviously not
11:24TehDan indeed....
11:24tizen I just meant, i'll get this install done, and I want the box to go live on feb first
11:24tizen that way i get a good idea for how much bandwidth i'll use
11:24@caker tizen: yeah, that wasn't directed at you
11:24npmr yes but a couple hundred MB/user times a couple hundred users is a lot of *your* bandwidth
11:25@caker npmr: good point.
11:25TehDan I made the argument yesterday it obviously doesn't cost you much either tho...
11:25adamg thats the thing you can still debt there banwidth but save your owne
11:26npmr then again, what's 10GB when the combined quotas of all of your users is around 2TB?
11:28--- ---> optikal [] has joined #linode
11:35ap0ught I still don't know why a user doesn't set a mirror up for public use anyways.
11:37tizen does it not count internal bandwidth?
11:37TehDan the bw to use an external one is cheaper than renting the storage
11:37TehDan even if you consider the cost of bw to all users, I would imagine
11:45rafx maybe the datacenter company would be willing to mirror. they have even more bandwidth savings to realize than just linode so it'll be worth it for them
11:46rafx hurricane might be willing
11:48@caker anything that goes past my switch is accounted as traffic
11:48tizen Debian GNU/Linux 3.1
11:48tizen orion login: root
11:48tizen Login incorrect
11:48tizen you guys ever see that?
11:49TehDan if you've just upgraded to sarge, you won't be able to login to the console as root
11:49tizen ah.
11:49TehDan login as you and su
11:50mikegrb lolz
11:50tizen lol, that sure sucks. I just did the install, then upgrade, didn't make myself an account
11:50TehDan ah....
11:50tizen haha, wow. I'm an idiot.
11:50--- ---> walkah [] has joined #linode
11:50TehDan make a little woody image, boot that, mount your sarge thingy and sort it out from there
11:50iggy maybe caker has added the option to set init=/bin/bash to the command line
11:50@caker tizen: tty0 to /etc/securetty
11:50@caker *add
11:50@caker iggy: not yet
11:50tizen caker: Yeah, i gotta get in now
11:51* iggy cracks the whip on caker
11:51walkah isses with 10. ?
11:51walkah er that's "issues"
11:51walkah seems to have fallen off the innurnet
11:52@caker walkah: local problem? I can ping other IPs in that range fine
11:52walkah hm. perhaps... should i reboot the linode then?
11:52TehDan I'm on one of them....
11:53walkah TehDan: and you have no problems?
11:53TehDan nope, been logged in for hours
11:53walkah ok, must just be ours
11:54* walkah tries a reboot
11:57@caker walkah:
11:57@caker __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/1)
11:57@caker __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/1)
11:57@caker __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/1)
11:57@caker ^-- you ran out of VM
11:57walkah nasty
11:57--- <<-- ap0ught [] has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
11:58* walkah puts money on mysql
11:58* mikegrb takes the money
11:58mikegrb thank you.
11:58adamg another reason for me to get this api finished
11:59* mikegrb replaces adamg with a very simple api
11:59TehDan mysql ports are getting hammered by a new worm (it only infects on windows tho)
11:59mikegrb "Chicken Cord on Blue"
11:59walkah TehDan: i only use unix sockets on that box
12:00TehDan sensible
12:00adamg nothing simple about my api
12:01optikal TehDan: got a link with more infoz on that
12:01TehDan I just saw it on slashdot, so consider me "un-informed"
12:01optikal aah =)
12:01TehDan but they have links
12:03TehDan sounds like linodes should be okay, even if you're silly enough to have your mysql port open though
12:03adamg caker: is it possible to remove all rdns from a ip?
12:04@caker adamg: yes, enter the IP as the RDNS
12:04adamg cool going to have drop rdns for some ips
12:06* adamg did have another question but cant remember now

12:14--- ---> guinea-pig [] has joined #linode
12:14guinea-pig here's a thought
12:15guinea-pig being able to see if your linode is being throttled from the website
12:15--- ---> Guest43 [] has joined #linode
12:15--- <<-- adamg [] has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
12:16--- User: *** Guest43 is now known as adamg
12:16@caker guinea-pig: ssh user@host io_status
12:17@caker guinea-pig: but yeah, not a bad idea I suppose
12:17guinea-pig caker: um yeah. lish was taking *forever* to connect too
12:17guinea-pig it finally did, though
12:19guinea-pig it would appear i wasn't being throttled, just high host load?
12:19@caker which host?
12:19guinea-pig 10
12:19@caker yeah, I just modded down some thrashers on host10 a few minutes ago
12:19guinea-pig mmm, medium-high host load
12:19guinea-pig ah, heh
12:20--- <<-- guinea-pig [] has quit (Quit: bye...)
12:20--- User: *** guinea-plow is now known as guinea-pig
12:20TehDan by thrashers do you mean gentoo users?
12:20guinea-pig haha
12:20guinea-pig i wonder how much i thrash
12:22jasonf if your linode is properly configured, none
12:23guinea-pig properly configured seems to require lack of spamassassin these days
12:24jasonf properly configured == having an acct large enough to handle your load, as well :)
12:24TehDan the price for the extra ram is worth it to not be bombarded with crap....
12:24TehDan (any price for the extra ram is worth it not to be bombarded with crap...)
12:25--- ---> spr [] has joined #linode
12:25walkah guinea-pig: so you see spamassassin acting piggish lately as well too?
12:25walkah or am i misreading?
12:25@caker SA likes RAM
12:26adamg that it does
12:27adamg caker you going to be around later today?
12:27guinea-pig walkah: the 3.x branch is worse than the 2.6x
12:27@caker adamg: should be
12:27adamg i am hoping to have the purchase code finished
12:27adamg although I have said that for the past 4 days
12:28walkah guinea-pig: yeah, that's what i've experienced as well
12:29TehDan by worse you mean better at catching spam?
12:29walkah i currently have SA 3 bringing a (non-linode) box to it's knees almost daily
12:29guinea-pig heh
12:29mikegrb I run spamd and limit it to one instance
12:29guinea-pig mikegrb: same here
12:29walkah mikegrb: ah. maybe limiting it to one instance would help
12:29* walkah uses spamd tho
12:30mikegrb walkah: well depends on number of users
12:30walkah i also run it via amavisd-new on this particular linode that went boom just now
12:30mikegrb walkah: I'm processing for just two users
12:30walkah mikegrb: ah
12:30walkah well, this linode is only processing for about 10
12:30walkah the other box does ~ 100
12:30mikegrb walkah: you could set it to 2 or 3
12:31mikegrb just depends on number of simultaneous messages
12:31walkah *nod*
12:31TehDan each instance can eat 30MB of ram very quickly....
12:32mikegrb probably limit to 4 or 5 for 100 users
12:32mikegrb if an instance isn't free when a message comes in spamc waits for an available thread
12:32mikegrb well the parent spamd thread accepts the tcp connection then blocks spamc until it has an available worker thread
12:36walkah *nod*
12:46tizen so any of you running a spamd/clamav/amavis setup on a linode 64 with any luck?
12:47--- <<-- ap0ught [] has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
12:48TehDan tizen: yes
12:49tizen ok, so it can work
12:49TehDan although amavis doesn't needs spamd - its the daemon and calls spamc when required
12:49TehDan yeah, although don't pelt it with large attatchments
13:00--- ---> tierra|w [] has joined #linode

13:05Virtual- hello all
13:05@caker hello
13:06Virtual- caker you are an official at linode?
13:06@caker Virtual-: that I am
13:06Virtual- can I pm you plz?
13:06@caker Sure
13:07@caker ...
13:10--- <<-- Virtual [] has quit (Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout))
13:27tizen Postfix runs in a chroot directory (/var/spool/postfix) and cannot access any files outside that directory. Usually you talk to the MySQL database via its socket file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock. As you can see this file is out of reach for Postfix. So you can either try to move the socket file (which may lead to other problems) or use TCP networking. The latter means you are talking to MySQL through your network stack.
13:27tizen You guys know if I can use a symlink to that?
13:28--- <<-- Virtual- [~Virtual@] has quit (Quit: )
13:28@caker tizen: sounds like it
13:29@caker tizen: it will need to be a hard link, not a symbolic link
13:29@caker tizen: which you'll probably need to recreate every time you restart mysql
13:30tizen ah.
13:30tizen hmm..
13:30tizen so i could add it to the startup file maybe?
13:30@caker startup file?
13:30tizen although, i could enable networking and use iptables to limit it to local connections
13:30tizen the script that starts mysql
13:31--- <<-- DarkSSJ [~darkssj@] has quit (Quit: Leaving)
13:31tierra|w the init script? I guess you could do that
13:32EFudd doesn't mikegrb have a log search utility for the irc logs here?
13:33@caker EFudd: *shrug* .. I can grep something for you
13:33EFudd i'm looking for all urls posted by me. trying to find a link to a simulator i'm guessing(hoping) i pasted in here
13:34tierra|w does supybot have a link collector or is there a plugin for something like that?
13:35@caker Yeah, it's on too
13:35tierra|w it's rare I need it, but it comes in handy... something like (I'm sure half those links are nws btw)
13:36@caker # grep -i efudd ../htdocs/irc/logs/* | grep http | wc -l
13:36@caker 452
13:36tierra|w heh
13:37EFudd grep -i efudd | grep http > foo.log /dc send efudd foo.log? :)
13:37@caker EFudd:
13:37EFudd okee
13:37@caker earth simulator
13:37@caker probably not it
13:38EFudd ah. earth simulator is the name of what was the #1 supercomputer
13:38EFudd it'sw now ~2 or 4 or sompn
13:38EFudd problem is i i got the link through some random RSS feed ><

13:39EFudd gracias
13:39EFudd i know i pasted it at some point cause it was spiffy as all get out. oyu could draw a 2d object, 3d-ize it (like drawing say a cube on paper), then draw a smaller square in one side and it'd effectively drill a hole through it, then rotate it in 3d.

17:51adamg hi rillian
17:52rillian howdy
17:52rillian are there newer kernel images somewhere I can try installing?
17:52rillian we've got a segfault with a new service we're trying to deploy
17:52rillian it's probably a race, but I can only reproduce it on the linode
17:52rillian so I thought a newer kernel might be worth a try
17:53adamg which kernel are you running now
17:53rillian 2.4.26-linode31-1um
17:54rillian (time for an upgrade anyway, really)
17:55rillian I found the changelog at but not the actual images
17:55@caker rillian: that's about 8 kernel versions old
17:55rillian like I said :)
17:55@caker rillian:
17:55adamg to change the kernel you use, you need to update the config profile for the one you are booting of
17:55adamg f
17:55@caker rillian: you're doing this locally, then?
17:56rillian caker: locally?
17:56@caker rillian: not on the Linode itself, hence the need for the actual kernel binaries
17:57rillian um
17:57@caker rillian: otherwise,, and read "How to upgrade"
17:57rillian I guess I was assuming the linode's kernel was on the filesystem like a normal system :)
17:57rillian ta for the link
17:57@caker rillian: wrong assumption :)

18:01adamg gets you whateve the lastest is pointed to
18:02rillian adamg: the subject of that sentence is missing
18:03adamg if the config profile to set to boot lastest 2.4 it will boot whatever kernel caker has set as latest 2.4

18:06rillian jabberd 1.4 + xdb_sql with postgres
18:06adamg cant help with that, you could try a 2.6 kernel
18:06rillian that's a good idea
18:07tizen Oh my god
18:07tizen I hate computers sometimes.
18:08mikegrb lolz
18:08tizen lol
18:08rillian only sometimes?
18:08adamg also to get an ipv6 address you would have to use a broker
18:08@caker rillian: which host are you on?
18:08tizen It should of known that my mysql password had a typo in that config file.
18:08tizen so i didn't spend the last 3 hours trying to figure out why it wouldn't connect
18:09@caker rillian: ok, never mind
18:09rillian adamg: yeah, we're doing that. a 'real' one from the local isp is better though
18:09adamg last time I heard I think HE wanted to charge caker a small fortune to get on their ipv6 network
18:09@caker yup
18:10rillian that's a little sad
18:10rillian making the early adoptors pay for it?
18:10@caker who knows :)
18:10adamg pretty much, until it becomes more common and more dc's support it...
18:11rillian I guess it could also be their ipv6 backbone connections are just expensive
18:13rillian adamg: looks like it runs on 2.6. Yay!
18:13adamg cool
18:14adamg I know it is costing dcs alot of money to make there systems ipv6 compatible
18:14adamg one company are quoting a mill+ for their dcs
18:17rillian linbot: acronym dcs
18:17linbot rillian: dcs could be Defense Communications System, or Daily Control Sheet, or Damage Control System, or Data and Control Systems (Greece), or Data Capture System, or Data Carrier System, or Data Center Services, or Data Clock Source, or Data Collaboration Server, or Data Collection System, or Data Communications Service(s), or Data Communications System, or Data Control System, or Data-sharing (1 more message)
18:17adamg datacenter's
18:19rillian well, at least they're doing it
18:19adamg well that one they have it in the pipeline
18:20adamg it is going to be another 5 years or so before it starts to become standard
