00:11<golb>if I have 3 linodes in different data centers, are the bandwidth also pooled?
00:12-!-supergear [] has joined #linode
00:12-!-supergear is now known as superGear
00:14<SelfishMan>Bandwidth pooling? Is that happening now?
00:14<neale>man, somebody must be pegging the disk on my host
00:15<bd_>A-KO: are you sure?
00:15<bd_>SelfishMan: yes, but it's not reported on the panel yet
00:15<SelfishMan>When did this happen? Linky?!?

00:19-!-yinkei [] has joined #linode
00:20<@tasaro>it is pooled
00:20<@tasaro>whether the nodes are in the same dc or not
00:20<Peng_>There were Fremont360s available today?
00:21*Pryon migrated to one
00:21<SelfishMan>There are two 540s now
00:21<A-KO>oh? I didn't know that tasaro
00:22<A-KO>I figured it'd be seperate
00:23-!-mikeage [] has joined #linode
00:25-!-eTiger13 [] has joined #linode
00:26<yinkei>If i get a 540, is it easy to downgrade/upgrade?
00:26<yinkei>fully automated? or is a ticket required?
00:27<SelfishMan>a ticket is required for the one-click migration but you can always get a second node of the new size and move everything manually
00:27<yinkei>i assume it is the case for moving to another DC as well?
00:28<SelfishMan>yep. same rules apply except for your IP(s) will change too
00:28-!-MotoHoss [] has left #linode [Researching...]

00:33<kilowhisky>does deleting a current distro work as a *foramt*?
00:34<bd_>kilowhisky: deleting the disk images will, effectively
00:34<kilowhisky>how do i do that?
00:34<kilowhisky>just delete from the dashboard?
00:36<Peng_>Thank you TCP for recovering from temporary network issues. :)
00:36<bd_>kilowhisky: yeah
00:36<kilowhisky>aye aye
00:37-!-railsninja [~railsninj@] has quit [Quit: Leaving...]
00:38-!-exor674 is now known as exor|zzz
00:39<eTiger13>can someone help me with apache? these are my conf files. domain1 seems to time out and domain 2 loads what domain 1 should
00:40-!-Miroku [] has joined #linode
00:40<SelfishMan>Make sure you have a proper "NameVirtualHost *" option in your config
00:41<SelfishMan>Does domain1 resolve to an IP? Is Apache listening on that IP?
00:42<eTiger13>do i need "NameVirtualHost * " with the wildcard?
00:42-!-superGear [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:43<SelfishMan>It only needs to be in the default sites config file ouside of the <VirtualHost> section
00:43<eTiger13>should that replace line 55?
00:43<SelfishMan>line 55 means nothing without seeing the config
00:44<eTiger13>lol :grins: thought i pasted but guess i didn't:
00:45<SelfishMan>Are you binding it to a specific IP?
00:45<eTiger13>just removed everything that has been commented out to make it easier to read for here.
00:45<eTiger13>yeah, my node IP
00:46<bob2>timing out = dns is messed up
00:46<SelfishMan>OK, then it needs to be "NameVirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx" as specifying the port tends to spit out errors
00:46<bob2>or apache isn't listening on that ip
00:47<eTiger13>bob2: they are cloned in the dns and pointed to the same ip
00:47<kilowhisky>could u guys visit and tell me if you see "It Works!" as well
00:47<SelfishMan>If you run "a2ensite domain2 && /etc/init.d/apache2 reload" it should work
00:47<bob2>then they wouldn't exhibit different behaviour
00:48<eTiger13>SelfishMan: the way i have the config setup now?
00:49-!-gsf [] has joined #linode
00:49-!-jas4711 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:49-!-jas4711 [] has joined #linode
00:50<eTiger13>well both sites are resolving to the default now
00:50-!-mikeage [] has left #linode []
00:50<SelfishMan>Did you remove the port numbers in all the VHost config files?
00:52<SelfishMan>should work then unless you broke something else in your config
00:52-!-Miroku [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:52<SelfishMan>What do the logs show?
00:52<SelfishMan>tail -f /var/log/apache2/*.log
00:53<gsf>my linode on newark41 is acting odd
00:53<gsf>stop and go doing simple things like opening mutt
00:54<gsf>got headroom on ram and idle cpu
00:54<gsf>anyway, no biggie, on my way to bed, just thought i'd mention it
00:55<gsf>in case anyone else is seeing similar
00:55<eTiger13>logs for domain 2 are empty
00:55<SelfishMan>when you visit domain2 do the logs show the hit in domain1?
00:56<SelfishMan>and did you actually run "a2ensite domain2 && /etc/init.d/apache2 reload"?
00:56<eTiger13>says its alrady enabled and i see it in sites-enabled
00:57<SelfishMan>Should work then
00:58-!-gsf [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:58<eTiger13>yeah logs for domain1 show both but domain 2 is empty
00:59<eTiger13>this is frustratin
00:59<bob2>pastebin your real config files
00:59<SelfishMan>You are missing something then. Post your actual config files from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and the output of apache2 -M -S
01:00<eTiger13>whats that last part supposed to do?
01:00<SelfishMan>Shows the loaded modules (both compiled and dynamic) and checks your vhost config
01:00-!-supergear [] has joined #linode
01:06<eTiger13>does nothing
01:07<eTiger13>well does something
01:07<eTiger13>displays this which i believe is bad: apache2: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
01:11-!-bssteph_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:12<bob2>pastebin your real config files
01:13-!-bssteph [] has joined #linode
01:13<SelfishMan>I think I hear an echo in here :-P

01:20-!-ph [~ph^] has joined #linode
01:20<SelfishMan>Adding a vhost normally with a stock install of apache2 just requires creating the config file in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ then running "a2ensite CONFIGFILE && /etc/init.d/apache2 reload" and that is it
01:20<yinkei>does anyone know any coupons for linode? I'm interested in trying them out
01:20<eTiger13>default in sites-available:
01:21<bd_>yinkei: there are some posted on webhostingtalk from time to time
01:21<MotoHoss>this err: ${APACHE_RUN_USER} seems that the envvars file is not correct...
01:21<bd_>but often there are none outstanding
01:21<yinkei>bd_: yeah they seem to have expired.
01:21<yinkei>I'm currently using slicehost but noticed that linode give you more for the same $
01:21<bob2>eTiger13: did you touch 00-default?
01:21<eTiger13>secondsite in sites-available:
01:22-!-ph [~ph^] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:22<eTiger13>000-default in sites-enabled points to default in sites-available
01:22<bob2>and that still isn't your real config files
01:22<eTiger13>MotoHoss: thats what i was thinking
01:22<SelfishMan>OK, those aren't the unmodified config files
01:23<@tasaro>yinkei: the only current promos are for prepaying -- we do offer a 7 day, 100% money back guarantee
01:23<SelfishMan>Do you only have one IP on your Linode?
01:25<eTiger13>yes. they are unmodified as in the only thing changed is the names and numbers but they have been kept the same relative to each other
01:25-!-pb [~pb@] has joined #linode
01:25<pb>any support from linode?
01:26<SelfishMan>are you binding anything to
01:26<pb>im signing up for linode 2880
01:26<pb>and when i finish up te registration
01:26<pb>it says We're sorry, no plan was found that could match your request. Please narrow your selection and try again.
01:26<@tasaro>pb: one sec, lemme look
01:27<linbot>eTiger13: Linode360 - 22, Linode540 - 26, Linode720 - 23, Linode1080 - 4, Linode1440 - 3, Linode2880 - 2
01:28<pb>it says 2 more available for 2880
01:28<eTiger13>SelfishMan: should i be?
01:28<SelfishMan>No. But since you aren't, change the NameVirtualHost line to "NameVirtualHost *" and the <VirtualHost> lines in each config file to "<VirtualHost *>"
01:28<@tasaro>pb: try now?
01:28<SelfishMan>then run /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
01:28<MotoHoss>what doe your ports.conf look like?
01:29<eTiger13>default install
01:29<pb>in firefox or ie?
01:29<pb>Please check for this email and follow the instructions to continue the registration process.
01:29<pb>thanks tasaro
01:29<pb>how long will my subscription be online?
01:30<SelfishMan>It can't be a default install. Something has been changed because a default install works quick and easy. I'm betting it is because of the vhost IP thing
01:31<bd_>pb: since a staffmember is around, I'd estimate around 30 seconds from when you reached tht screen. Go check your email again ;)
01:31<eTiger13>changed to wildcard for the namevirtualost and virtualhosts and they still point to the same place
01:32<SelfishMan>OK, you modified somewhere else then. What does your ports.conf look like?
01:32<pb>i see it
01:32<pb>continuing the registration
01:32<pb>i mean, once ive done payment and all
01:32<pb>how long will i be able to login to my server
01:33<bd_>pb: oh wait, you were at email confirm, not billing confirmation
01:33<bd_>well, once you finish the entire process, it goes to manual confirmation
01:33<bd_>and the staff has a running competition on how fast they can confirm accounts...
01:34<bd_>and tasaro seems to be around, so I'd guess it won't be too long? :)
01:34<pb>btw, my irc buddy referred me to you guys
01:34<bd_>(unless there's a red flag from the billing software, in which case they'll ask for additional information and etc)
01:34<yinkei>do they phone you?
01:34<yinkei>or just via email?
01:35<eTiger13>pretty empty
01:38<pb>already finished the sign up

01:41<kilowhisky>if i get error when typing, sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql phpmyadmin, is this bc/ its down?
01:43-!-ph^ [~ph^@] has joined #linode
01:44<pb>tasaro : -- Your account is currently pending activation --
01:44<@tasaro>pb: are you getting my /msg ?
01:44<pb>OH pm
01:44<pb>sorry havent done irc in a browser lol
01:44<Pryon>kilowhisky: depends on the error
01:45<kilowhisky>it says
01:45<kilowhisky>Err hardy-updates/main php5-common 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.1
01:45<kilowhisky> 404 Not Found [IP: 80]
01:45<kilowhisky>there are like 4 more errors just like that
01:45<bd_>the mirror's out of date
01:46<bd_>remove the us. bit
01:46<bob2>have you 'sudo aptitude updated'd lately?
01:47<SelfishMan>Yes, apt-get update is your friend
01:47<kilowhisky>oh.. i've just installed this whole thing, i'm new to this stuff
01:47<kilowhisky>i see
01:48<kilowhisky>it works now
01:48<SelfishMan>First thing I recommend on *any* distro is to update it. Under Ubuntu you can just run 'apt-get update && apt-get upgrade' to do this
01:49<kilowhisky>i see
01:49<SelfishMan>Like with any OS it is never completely up-to-date when you install it
01:50<SelfishMan>Except gentoo but who really wants to wait 3 days to find out if the new version even works
01:51<kilowhisky>the beauty of vps
01:51<kilowhisky>i'm kinda gettin used to it
01:53<MotoHoss>aptitude works well for me. I left synaptic and apt behind.
01:54<yinkei>does gentoo really take 3 days to compile/install?
01:54<A-KO>yinkei: not really
01:55<yinkei>probably an hour?
01:55<A-KO>couple of hours
01:55<A-KO>X takes a while, if you use X
01:55<A-KO>if you're talking in regards to linode, same as everything else
01:55<A-KO>compile times make it a bit slower overall but it's not too bad
01:56<bob2>also your nodemates will hate you
01:56<A-KO>not really
01:56<A-KO>your nodemates will never know
01:56<A-KO>if Gentoo severely impacted linode performance, they would not have it available for use
01:56<yinkei>lol they shoudl tell you who your nodemates are, so you can knock on their door when they're too loud
01:56<SelfishMan>Gentoo + shared environment = NOT COOL
01:57<A-KO>SelfishMan: like I said, if it impacted linodes in any way I'm sure they would remove it from availability
01:57<SelfishMan>You use Gentoo on your Linode, don't you?!?
01:58<A-KO>yes, yes I do
01:58<SelfishMan>ha ha ha
01:58<SelfishMan>Couldn't tell at all!
02:01<yinkei>is fermont the only DC linode has in the west coast?
02:03<kilowhisky>is it possible to have a different A-record(pointed somewhere else) on root domain and still have a sub-domain pointed on my linode acc?
02:04<encode>random question, if i have files on a server for which i don't have root access, files are owned by my user account, permissions 600, how can i delete them?
02:04<kilowhisky>i see
02:04<encode>i keep getting permission denied
02:05<bob2>give yourself write permission to the dir they are in
02:05<bd_>encode: deletion is about the permissions of the directory
02:05<bd_>you need write and possibly execute access to the directory
02:05<bob2>(so, slightly confusingly, you can delete files you can't read(
02:05<SelfishMan>+x? why?
02:05<bd_>SelfishMan: traversal
02:06<bd_>[bd@satoko bd] touch test/x
02:06<bd_>[bd@satoko bd] chmod 0600 test
02:06<bd_>[bd@satoko bd] rm test/x
02:06<bd_>rm: cannot remove `test/x': Permission denied
02:06<bd_>on directories:
02:06<bd_>+r lets you opendir/readdir
02:06<encode>bah, i tried chmod to 700, didn't work, but chmod u+x does work
02:06<bd_>+w lets you alter files in it
02:06<bd_>+x lets you address anything under it
02:06<bd_>+w is useless without +x
02:08<encode>thanks guys!
02:09-!-HedgeMage [] has quit [Quit: Bedtime!]
02:11<kilowhisky>T_T sorry again guys, if i have a subdomain, where is the dir in the ftp? do i just connect as in the first place?
02:13<bob2>ftp doesn't do host-based virtual hosting
02:14<bob2>if you have one ip, you can have one directory hierarchy exposed via ftp

02:15-!-Ivaylo [] has quit []
02:15-!-LinodeJavaUser [] has quit []
02:16<Pryon>and staying connected to IRC
02:16<SelfishMan>Maybe they were upset about not getting an immediate response?!?
02:20<ae5ir>wtf, you mean you didn't answer 'em before the question was asked?!
02:21<ae5ir>This is inexcusable.
02:21<SelfishMan>Sorry. Won't happen again. Please don't hit me again!
02:21<ae5ir>Pryon, hit SelfishMan.
02:22<dvgrhl>LinodeJavaUser should not be allowed

02:26<Peng_>SelfishMan: I can't remember, do you still want Fremont nodes?
02:26<Peng_>(Not that I can help or anything. I just don't remember.)
02:27<SelfishMan>Sort of. I have half a rack in Fremont so I'm not hurting for one
02:27<SelfishMan>But if something popped up that I wanted when I was in the right mood I would probably take it maybe
02:27<Peng_>OK :)
02:27<SelfishMan>Still two 540s available I think
02:27<linbot>SelfishMan: Fremont360 - 0, Fremont540 - 3, Fremont720 - 0, Fremont1080 - 0, Fremont1440 - 0, Fremont2880 - 0
02:28<Peng_>When did that happen?
02:28<StevenK>SelfishMan: Aren't you after a Fremont node or two?
02:28<Peng_>Well yeah.
02:28-!-ITgopher [] has joined #linode
02:29<ITgopher>Hi, Guys!
02:29-!-ITgopher [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:29-!-ITgopher [] has joined #linode
02:30<ITgopher>I am trying to setup my very first Linode with Ubuntu. Is there a handy how-to manual somewhere to follow, sort of a "for Dummies" style?
02:31<Peng_>ITgopher: I'm sure there are a lot of Ubuntu and Linux tutorials. You don't really need something Linode-specific.
02:31<ITgopher>Thanks, Peng_
02:31<KB1PYW>ITgopher: what type of stuff are you trying to do?
02:32<SelfishMan>Just make sure they are Ubuntu tutorials and not something more generic or specific to another distro
02:32<KB1PYW>Peng is right though, linode is really just linux.. so any docs you get will be relevant
02:32<ITgopher>My very first question is how big of a disk image size should I pick in the Distro Wizard...
02:32<SelfishMan>I see a lot of people asking how to do something and saying they followed a howto for another distro and now things don't work
02:32<Peng_>Remember that VPSes are memory-constrained, so if you're planning to run Apache, MySQL or anti-spam stuff, you should read about optimizing them for low-memory environments. Again, not Linode-specific.
02:33*Peng_ goes back to being away.
02:33*KB1PYW likes lighttpd
02:33<ITgopher>I don't even have Linux running yet LOL
02:33<KB1PYW>lighttpd 4 life
02:34<yinkei>KB1PYW: is it simple to set up?
02:34<KB1PYW>yes, very
02:34<ITgopher>All I need to know is how much of my linode memory I should allocate for the disk image size
02:34<ae5ir>"I'm trying to fix my yugo. I got a manual for a kia and did everything it said to do, now my engine just fell out. Help plz"
02:34<ITgopher>LOL @ae5ir
02:34<SelfishMan>Personally I think that apache's config is easier to read and understand but lighttpd performs better typically
02:35<SelfishMan>ae5ir: rm -rf /etc should fix that
02:35<ae5ir>oh wow
02:35<KB1PYW>SelfishMan: I setup apache the other day for some performance testing, and I was lost (because I'm out of it).. so it is waht you are used you
02:35<yinkei>lighttpd doesn't support mod rewrite?
02:35<yinkei>i think
02:35<KB1PYW>ITgopher: you can just do 11776 for your disk and 512 for swap
02:36<SelfishMan>For the record, *don't* run that command!
02:36*ae5ir has quit irc (Operation timed out)
02:36<KB1PYW>yinkei: it absolutely does
02:36<ITgopher>KB1PYW: won't that use up all my available storage space? I would have thought I have to leave some for a rainy day LOL
02:36<SelfishMan>ITgopher: I recommend a gig less than half so you can clone the image while you are learning and not have to recreate everything if you mess up
02:36<SelfishMan>Oh, and 256 for swap
02:37<KB1PYW>ITgopher: you could do that... i wouldn't worry about it, personally
02:37<SelfishMan>ITgopher: You can resize the disks at any time but there will be a bit of downtime for the resize
02:37<ae5ir>with all that laughing out loud, I hope no one's trying to sleep nearby like is the case here
02:37<KB1PYW>SelfishMan: good idea..
02:38<ITgopher>ae5ir: Sorry for disturbing... Shhht!
02:38*SelfishMan ponders poking the lol botz
02:38-!-KB1PYW is now known as lighty4life
02:38<ITgopher>SelfishMan: I think that is a really good idea.
02:39<ITgopher>I'll go try that now...
02:40<linbot>SelfishMan: *click*
02:40<linbot>SelfishMan: *click*
02:40<linbot>SelfishMan: *click*
02:40<linbot>*BANG* Hey, who put a blank in here?!
02:40*linbot reloads and spins the chambers.
02:40<SelfishMan>Is there a reason that linbot has been firing blanks for the last few weeks?
02:41<StevenK>He's not been op'd?
02:41<SelfishMan>Must have had too many kicks in the yamsack
02:42<eTiger13>ok ive got my virtualhosts almost working. without www the site goes to the right place but with it, it doesn't. what do i have to add to make it redirect to www always?
02:43<ITgopher>Alright... 12,288 / 2 = 6,144 - 1,024 = 5,120MB for the disk image and 512MB for the swap file. Sound good enough?
02:43<SelfishMan>Sounds like you need a ServerAlias directive
02:43<SelfishMan>ServerName, ServerAlias
02:46<ITgopher>Hmmm, can anyone also tell me if there is much of a difference whether I am using the regular Ubuntu 8.04 distro or the 64-bit?
02:47<eTiger13>ITgopher: mostly the memory size limit i think.

02:48<eTiger13>serveralias works but keeps the address the same. do i need to do a rewrite to redirect it to www.?
02:48<ITgopher>eTiger: Thanks! Which in my particular case won't make that much of a difference with 360MB of RAM, anyway, right?
02:49<SelfishMan>ITgopher: There is no real reason that I can think of to use the 64-bit version of the distro

02:51<ITgopher>SelfhishMan: Ya think?! LOL
02:51<eTiger13>ITgopher: only 360?
02:51<kilowhisky>where can i find my domains root dir in sftp
02:52<ITgopher>eTiger: Yes, I am going cheap for now. Let that baby grow with time...
02:52<ITgopher>... with the correct care, of course.
02:52<eTiger13>kilowhisky: depends on how you have it setup and which server you are running

03:58<buckie555>I would like to be able to download my linode image to a remote destination so that I have a complete off node backup. Does anyone know how I can do this?
04:02<MotoHoss>rsync for the data ....
04:05-!-golb [hendrylee@] has joined #linode
04:05<buckie555>But it's taken me some time to get the configuration (os and package patches and apps setup) to a stage that I can use it to quickly setup new nodes and now I'd like to clone the entire image and store it somewhere safe locally
04:06<MotoHoss>if is the default vhost and is another vhost anything else will go to default in a single ip setup.
04:06<MotoHoss>rsync will do exactly what you need it to.
04:08<buckie555>Unless I've missed something I thought that rsync backs up specified folders. If I use that then when I setup a new linode won't I need to setup the os all over again before copying the archived files across. I was hoping to avoid this
04:09<buckie555>On my windows machines at home I use acronis true image to take a complete snapshot off all partitiions on a node and then in the case of a bad failure I can be up and running in an hour by just installing the images on another physical machine
04:10<buckie555>I was hoping that the disk image resides somewhere as a file and that I could shutdown the linode and download the image file by sftp or similar
04:11-!-chmac [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:12<buckie555>Is this possible?
04:13<MotoHoss>that I don't know about. All I need is the data... in /etc /var /home and after aptitude update i am back in business... with a few keystrokes.
04:14<SelfishMan>buckie555: Short answer is no, it isn't that simple
04:14<SelfishMan>You have to shutdown, boot another profile or finnix recovery instance, then dd the image across the net
04:15<SelfishMan>Or you could use the Linode clone feature which will duplicate the disk image onto the same host

04:23<buckie555>selfishman - thanks for the help, I'll give it a try and see how I get on.

04:54<SelfishMan>Well that is really the question then
04:54<SelfishMan>Don't get me wrong, I'm all for 64-bit and the amd64 stuff whenever possible
04:55<SelfishMan>Although it wasn't long ago I couldn't run the latest stable build of perl on a 64-bit node because of several known issues
04:56<SelfishMan>I highly doubt anyone will see any major improvement with a 64-bit image on a Linode
04:58<SelfishMan>The issue with Perl was memory leak related at the time not to mention several packages were unusable

11:14<r3z>Wow Rackspace bought slicehost?
11:15<anderiv>r3z: old news, man.
11:15<anderiv>that was *so* yesterday
11:15<anderiv>they bought JungleDisk as well.
11:15<anderiv>I'm more bummed about that then slicehost, as I'm actually a pretty heavy JungleDisk user.
11:16*r3z has never used jungledisk
11:16<anderiv>it's basically a front-end for Amazon's S3. It's used for performing backups.

11:22*r3z needs a solution pretty soon.
11:22<r3z>Iam looking at just using a 1and1 hosting package to get the 120gb for $5\month
11:22<zeroday>£4 a month = win
11:23<r3z>I could care less about the hosting but looks like cheap storage.
11:23<JasonF>you'll get cancelled for that
11:23<r3z>I can setup software to backup over FTP.
11:23<JasonF>look at jungle disk + s3
11:23<r3z>Bleh I can front a website heh
11:23<r3z>I have 2 domains still registered with 1and1 I dont use.
11:23<JasonF>i know people who've done it and gotten caught, so *Shrug*

11:26<lakin>My company needs access to a few remote windows installations for stuff like: testing sites in different versions of IE, etc. Now, a single linode account doesn't allow me to run multiple OSes at the same time by default right? But would it be feasible to install Ubuntu, and then Xen to achieve it? (Now I'm running Windows on Xen on Ubuntu on Xen on (Linode's server OS))

11:26<ferik2>I have an old host that's not Xen and a new host that's now set up the way I like it (and is Xen).

Possibly archives that I could upload in some way and start up ASAP if needed to ?
11:26<JasonF>when/if I can get Jungle Disk for cheap/free I'll probably change to that. Hell, I probbaly would've bought it if I known it existed before writing my own

11:29*r3z is looking for cheap ;)
11:29<r3z>Jungledisk does look like a good alternative ;)
11:29<zeroday>you get what you pay for
11:30<zeroday>$1.60 p/m, how is that expensive?
11:30<JasonF>I've had no problems with S3, and I trust that when jungledisk is ported to Rackspace/Mosso Cloud Files, that it'll be pretty great, too.
11:30<zeroday>per gig
11:30<JasonF>zeroday: it's more expensive than s3, for sure
11:31<zeroday>s3 doesnt support rsync without extra apps

11:38<zeroday>another reason I didnt sign up to S3, they dont accept Solo cards for payment
11:38<Isvara>Ah, so you can't serve directly from it?
11:38<zeroday>yet they accept that for amazon shop
11:38<anderiv>Isvara: yes, you can.
11:38<JasonF>but you can use something more abstract like duplicity or jungle disk
11:39<Isvara>So I could use it for something
11:39<Isvara>s/something/something like/
11:39<anderiv>Isvara: yes, for sure.
11:39<JasonF>you pay for the data transfer
11:39<Isvara>I'll have to look into that, then.
11:39<JasonF>$.10/gig for transfer

11:40<Isvara>How's it compare pricewise? And is S3 distributed enough to be a CDN?
11:40<anderiv>JDLSpeedy: you mean loopback connections?
11:40<anderiv>Isvara: S3 != CDN
11:40<r3z>JDLSpeedy, from another linode or from the same linode?

11:40<Isvara>S3 just has one serving location?
11:41<anderiv>Isvara: though Amazon announce a month ago or so that they're working on a CDN
11:41<JDLSpeedy>r3z: same
11:41<anderiv>Isvara: no, they have several DCs around the globe, but it's not robost enough to be considered a "true" CDN.
11:41<anderiv>Isvara: Akamai-style CDN anyway.
11:41<JDLSpeedy>anderiv: the IP that linode assigns us, if you connect with that ip inside the same linode
11:42<A-KO>JDLSpeedy: no
11:42<JDLSpeedy>A-KO: ok thanks
11:46<JasonF>Isvara: price is cheaper
11:46<JasonF>real problem is that the new cloud files has no real clients yet
11:47<ferik2>anderiv: yes, I have another linux box to work from
11:47<Isvara>Looks more expensive. $0.15/GB for the storage and $0.22/GB for the bandwidth.
11:47<JasonF>I didn't see the b/w costs
11:47<Isvara>It's in the pricing chart
11:48<ferik2>anderiv: so if I understand correctly this :dd if=/dev/ubdb | ssh -p 22 -c blowfish root@linodeA dd of=/dev/ubdh
11:49<ferik2>anderiv: dumps through ssh a node A disk to another node B disk.
11:49<anderiv>ferik2: yes
11:49<ferik2>anderiv: what if I don't want to dump it to a device but to a file, is that possible ?
11:49<anderiv>ferik2: alternative, you can do dd if=/dev/ubdb | ssh -p 22 -c blowfish root@linodeA dd of=/path/to/file

15:14<tozz>hm, I was looking at CDN plans and there's a mention of anycast, is it something I would setup on the server? (not really into the whole dns thing) :)
15:15<tozz>I get the idea and purpose, just not the setup
15:16<bd_>heh, anycasting isn't something you can do unless you own the address space and the network links yourself :)
15:16<bd_>you could put geolocation logic on a dns server that you run on the linode, I guess, but you'd be writing that yourself, probably

16:58<bd_>64-bit code requires (somewhat) more memory, remember
16:58<bd_>due to larger pointers
16:58<nokess>don't program compiled for 64 bit run fatser?
16:58<bd_>nokess: it depends
16:58<bd_>they have a larger cache footprint due to larger pointers
16:59<bd_>they have more general purpose registers
16:59<bd_>and a more sane calling convention
16:59-!-golb_ [~hendry.le@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:00<nokess>guess until there are more 64 bit programs out there, migration will be slow ...
17:00<bd_>nokess: well in point of fact
17:00<bd_>most programs don't benefit much from enlarged integer types, or more address space
17:01<bd_>however LOTS of programs can use the extra registers
17:01<bd_>and the extra registers don't take any work to take advantage of :)
17:01<HoopyCat>in a low-memory VPS situation where you have plenty of CPU but not a lot of memory, i'd say 32-bit is probably the win
17:01<bd_>I'd agree there
17:01<bd_>otoh on my laptop, where I have 2.5G of RAM, I go all 64-bit :)
17:02<HoopyCat>it's all tradeoffs :-)
17:02<nokess>I am bit confused ... is the only adv of a 64 bit more memory capacity and beeter memory utilisation
17:03<nokess>and not better cpu utiliation?
17:03<bd_>nokess: basically, 64-bit itself gives bigger integers (Which is nice in some cases) and bigger pointers (which is nice if you're dealing with multiple gigabytes of data at a time)
17:03<bd_>on amd64 specifically,
17:03<bd_>they fixed a major problem in i386 /at the same time/ as they introduced 64-bit
17:03<bd_>namely, the severe shortage of general purpose registers - ie, temporary working space for the cpu
17:04<bd_>the i386 only had... 5 or 6 I think?
17:04<bd_>and even freeing up one more could have a measurable performance improvement (this is what -fomit-frame-pointer does)
17:04<bd_>the amd64 architecture roughly doubled the number of general purpose registers
17:04<bd_>reducing the amount of movement between registers and memory that is needed
17:05<bd_>however, there are some disadvantages
17:05<bd_>the increased number of registers theoretically increases the performnce impact of userspace->kernel transitions
17:05<bd_>and the use of 64-bit pointers increases cpu cache pressure, possibly resulting in more cache misses
17:05<HoopyCat>also, if your application does a lot of big math that doesn't fit in 32 bits very well (some crypto algorithms, etc), you'll probably see a significant boost
17:05<bd_>so whether it's a win or not isn't clear-cut in all cases
17:06<tjfontaine>even though there are more GP regs, doesn't the compiler still have to know to use them?
17:06<bd_>tjfontaine: Yes. Which it does.
17:06<bd_>If you're building for amd64, the compiler knows all about those registers
17:07<HoopyCat>tjfontaine: gcc is on it like pigs on a compost heap
17:07<tjfontaine>well, if you're building for 32 on amd64 not much good the GP regs do
17:07<bd_>and gcc's worked on ppc and other register-rich cpus for ages
17:07<nokess>you should add what you said to the wikipedia article :)
17:07<bd_>so they can just take that over
17:07<bd_>tjfontaine: you aren't allowed to use the extras in 32-bit mode
17:07<nokess>"The main disadvantage of 64-bit architectures is that relative to 32-bit architectures the same data occupies more space in memory"
17:07<bd_>it'd be a security issue otherwise - a 32-bit kernel wouldn't know to save and restore them
17:07<tjfontaine>bd_: meh, that's no fun :)
17:07<nokess>according to wikipedia
17:08<bd_>nokess: yes. because of the larger pointers
17:08<tjfontaine>you just *now* read that?
17:08<nokess>so I guess you guys might be right that it isn't suitable for low memory vps
17:08<tjfontaine>I pasted that before bd_ had to explain the whole article :)
17:08<bd_>nokess: well, again, it really depends on your application
17:08<tjfontaine>unless you're doing lots of specific math operations :)
17:08<nokess>sorry, missed the link tjfontaine
17:09<nokess> :p
17:09<HoopyCat>there's tradeoffs other than performance to consider, as well... for instance, if your dev platform is 64-bit and you desire binary compatibility between that and your production platform, there you go

21:38*HedgeMage peeks in
21:38<HedgeMage>how is everyone tonight?
21:40<eTiger13>anyone know of a way to make subversion clean? as in not create .svn folders in every folder but store those in a mirrored directory?
21:41<bd_>eTiger13: that's not supported in vanilla subversion
21:41<bd_>you could write a FUSE filter to hide them I guess
21:41<StevenK>Or have two - a checkout and an export
21:41<eTiger13>know of any other version control thats cleaner?
21:41<bd_>eTiger13: hmm
21:41<bd_>you could try svk
21:41<bd_>I don't know if that's still actively developed, it's been years since I last used it
21:43<eTiger13>random question but if someone paid you a few bucks to try out netflix or blockbuster online, would you?
21:43<guinea-pig>they'd have to pay more than a few bucks to buy me a supported OS to view the online content
21:44<Bdragon>mercurial uses a single toplevel .hg folder...
21:44<guinea-pig>stoopid netflix
21:44<bd_>Bdragon: git does the same
21:44<bd_>(except it's .git obviously)
21:44<Bdragon>monotone uses a sqlite database
21:45<Bdragon>(I can't remember if it dumps extra stuff into the checkout or not..)
21:45*Bdragon checks..
21:45<Bdragon>ahh, monotone uses a toplevel _MTN folder
21:45<Bdragon>and the database file
21:46-!-railsninja [~railsninj@] has joined #linode
21:47<eTiger13>are those hard to install/manage?
21:48<Bdragon>Nah, they're all distributed
21:49<Bdragon>mercurial's the easiest imo
21:52<eTiger13>hows it compare to svn?
21:52<Bdragon>Much easier than svn? I had no trouble setting up some repos...
21:53<bd_>OTOH the distributed models can be a bit confusing at first if you're used to centralized models
21:53<bd_>for a single working copy there probably won't be much difference htough
21:53<bd_>except that you won't need a seperate repository
21:53<Bdragon>It's a different mindset

22:00<eTiger13>oh ok

22:51<archwolf>Hiya, everyone.
22:51<archwolf>I have what I would call (I guess) a networking question regarding my Linode...
22:52<archwolf>Basically, I have two OSes set up (freshly installed)... one Debian 4.0 (for me), and one Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (for a friend). I was wanting to have each OS on a seperate IP (if that's even possible), so my friend's Ubuntu install is at one location/subdomain, and mine (Debian) is on another. Is that possible, and if
22:55<archwolf>Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, I really wanted to get this working, if it's even possible.\
22:56<supergear>i think you need another node
22:56<supergear>i could be wrong tho
22:56<atourino>you can only have one "machine" running at a time per node
22:56<archwolf>I see.
22:57<atourino>so... if you want both OSs working at the same time, you will need to add another linode
