00:00<Foxog>Is paypal okay?
00:00<@heckman>We don't accept payments via Paypal.
00:00<amitz>i mean, srsly speaking, i guess it's more sensitive to not declare how cheap it is, since linode has international customers ;-)
00:00<Foxog>How to create LAMP?
00:01<akerl>!library LAMP
00:01<linbot>akerl: 1. Set up a LAMP Server on Debian 5 (Lenny) - | 2. Set up a LAMP Server on Debian 6 (Squeeze) - | 3. Build a LAMP Server on a Linode -
00:01<kyhwana>I love lamp
00:01<akerl>Lamps light my home
00:01<Foxog>LNMP down't
00:02<@heckman>akerl: all packed for the big move to Linodia?
00:02<Foxog>What do you think about LNMPA

00:02<Fieldy>N being what, nginx?
00:02<amitz>i mean, find out where someone is cooming from first before throwing that argument. anyway, i return to lurk mode now.
00:03<Foxog>Linux + Nginx + MySQL + PHP +Apache
00:03<akerl>heckman: the pod is 85% packed, I called today to get all the utilities set up for habitation
00:03<akerl>Meh @ nginx + apache
00:03<Fieldy>dunno i use lighttpd where at all possible
00:03<Foxog>Use apache for php, and nginx for HTMLs
00:03<akerl>For 95% of people, using multiple stacked web servers is overkill
00:04<Fieldy>sure is
00:04<akerl>Either properly configured apache or properly configured nginx (or insert other httpd) can handle all your content
00:04<Foxog>I think mod-php is better than Nginx;s

01:06<praetorian>gotta go to work tomorrow :-(
01:06<thekev>I've got a fremont node that's only reachable like half the time
01:06<thekev>another node is fine
01:06<thekev>just me?
01:08<Solver>thekev: which DC is it in?
01:08<mdcollins>Have you tried mtr?
01:08<praetorian>there was a fremont outage yesterday, if you are referring to that btw
01:09<thekev>yeah last hop I see is ...
01:09<thekev>..and now it's back
01:10<mdcollins>This must be the accessable half.
01:10<thekev>I'm talking to you from a fremont node
01:10<thekev>this one is happy
01:10<Peng>thekev: File a ticket with an mtr showing brokenness.
01:11<thekev> <- last
01:11<Peng>thekev: File a ticket, don't tell me. ;-)
01:11<Peng>Woah, Linode has a 10 Gbit connection?
01:11<thekev>01:08 < mdcollins> Have you tried mtr?
01:11<thekev>^responding to that
01:12<praetorian>not everything is about you Peng
01:12<mdcollins>Well, if it looks like a Linode issue, the ticket is your best bet to getting it fixed at this hour.
01:12<Peng>praetorian: My brain doesn't store backlog.
01:13-!-tyler11 [] has joined #linode
01:13<praetorian>maybe you should buy some backlog from linsides
01:13<mdcollins>He works in the time of now, not the past.
01:13<Peng>I never look back!
01:13<mdcollins>It just wastes time!
01:13<praetorian>never say never!
01:14<thekev>my cpu graph shows 400%
01:14<thekev>before I issued a reboot
01:14<tyler11>anyone know whether its possible to use SNI with mod_vhost_alias?
01:14<praetorian>...ah is your linode OOMing?
01:15<thekev>hmm no
01:15<thekev>lassie is rebooting it
01:15<thekev>that's why it's coming after going
01:15<thekev>I can't keep on lish long enough to figure it out

01:19<thekev>BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008
01:19<@heckman>Try switching to the "Latest 3.0" kernel to see if it's fixed.
01:20<thekev>yep, already ahead of ya
01:21<@heckman>Good deal.
01:23<thekev>holding for a few mins so far
01:24<thekev>oh great, now I have an ec2 node dead too. lovin it.
01:24<@heckman>Sounds like time for a nice glass of scotch.
01:25<thekev>sure would be nice if I could get console on ec2 :)
01:25<thekev>but at least they don't buy transit from
01:26<thekev>...they just fail in their own epic ways

01:31<thekev>but they have /lots/ of other paths
01:31-!-zencyl [] has joined #linode
01:33<Peng>I didn't say they used HE *much*. :D
01:35<thekev>HE is good to have in the blend, but being single-homed to HE is like being single-homed to Cogent
01:35<thekev>actually, worse lately. I hope they're going to start replacing those old GSRs now. :)
01:36<Peng>It's not quite as bad as being single-homed to Cogent. They don't cause problems on *purpose*.
01:36-!-rurufufuss [] has joined #linode
01:39<Peng>Wait, did "They" in that sentence come off as HE or Cogent?

01:48<huma>who is running archlinux on linode? are you worried about pacman -Syu on production server? :)
01:48<Peng>People who worry about that don't use Arch on production servers, do they? :P
01:49<huma>yes, but i'm curious. maybe they never update :)
01:49<huma>i'm quite fond of archlinux on my home boxes, but... not sure about production linodes
01:50<@heckman>It does some weird things on my desktop that I need to figure out, but other than that I like Arch at home.
01:52<@heckman>I really need to switch back to Nvidia as ATi is funky with Linux.
01:57-!-zeade [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
02:00<praetorian>ati sucks with linux
02:00<praetorian>their fault, not ours!
02:00<praetorian>what funky things is it doing for you?
02:00<@heckman>Video freaks out. Screen will go black for a bit, then come back, sometimes I lose all video.

02:02<@heckman>I have my eyes on a 580.

02:13<MrGlass>Hi. I set up my server ages ago, using an article in the library on setting up an ubuntu lamp server. I tried using a new framework today and it requires php 5.3, but I only seem to have 5.2. How can I upgrade to 5.3?
02:13<MrGlass>I tried using aptitude update/upgrade
02:13-!-epochwolf [] has quit [Quit: Bye!]
02:14<kyhwana>There's probably a PPA with updated php
02:14-!-Demonicpagan [] has quit [Quit: ( :: NoNameScript 4.22 :: )]
02:17<retro|blah>what version of ubuntu
02:18<retro|blah>lucid-updates has 5.3.2
02:19<MrGlass>its old, not sure what
02:24<retro|blah>hm. cat /etc/issue
02:24-!-dragonsd [] has joined #linode
02:25<retro|blah>right, you should upgrade to 10.04 then
02:25<Peng>s/should/need to/
02:25<MrGlass>there a decent upgrade path?
02:25<MrGlass>somehow i dont think thqats a 3am project
02:26<kyhwana>hmm, yeah .10's aren't supposed for long..
02:29<Peng>MrGlass: The Linode library covers upgrading.
02:30<MrGlass>doin it now
02:30<MrGlass>might as well take it to newest
02:30<MrGlass>best way to take it to 10.4, then from there to 11?
02:30<retro|blah>probably best to take it to 10.04, then 12.04 when it comes out next year
02:31<retro|blah>10.04 is the long term release
02:31<MrGlass>sounds good

02:59-!-Kane` [] has joined #linode
03:00<Kane`>quick question, if i've backgrounded a program `sleep 100 &`, can i fire up `screen` and then resume/foreground that job?
03:05<kyhwana>no, but yes
03:05<kyhwana>hold on
03:05<kyhwana>use that
03:07<Kane`>there might be an easier solution to what i'm trying to do
03:07<Kane`>basically, i have SCP transferring some large files over to my server
03:07<Kane`>i don't want my SSH connection to my server to die and ruin the transfer
03:07<Kane`>so i backgrounded the job
03:07<Peng>Hmm, does scp delete half-complete files if it dies?
03:07<Kane`>then realised that wouldn't work if i got disconnected
03:08<kyhwana>oh right
03:08<Kane`>Peng, i'm not sure
03:08<kyhwana>use nohup blah &
03:08<kyhwana>or start it in a screen
03:08<Kane`>kyhwana, the job's already running though :<
03:08<bob2>protip, rsync, also use screen
03:08<Kane`>can i `nohup` an already running job?
03:09<chesty>Kane`: i believe with a little help from gdb, you can do what you want.
03:09<kyhwana>so use reptyr
03:09<kyhwana>and reattach to it inside a screen
03:09<praetorian>i agree re: rsync
03:10-!-Nedry [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:10<chesty>Kane`: you can kill your scp, start screen and resume it with rsync --partial
03:10<kyhwana>I've used reptyr before and it works
03:12<Kane`>i'll try out reptyr

03:21<tts>does anyone know exactly what the xinetd-fail jail in fail2ban protects against? tried looking in online docs, not much there
03:22-!-azaghal_ is now known as azaghal
03:30*heckman has no idea
03:31<praetorian>there is one? hmm
03:32<@heckman>Maybe just misc services that use inetd for authentication? I doubt there are many, if any.
03:32<kenyon>look at /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/xinetd-fail.conf
03:32<praetorian>failregex = xinetd(?:\[\d{1,5}\])?: FAIL: \S+ address from=<HOST>$
03:32<praetorian> xinetd(?:\[\d{1,5}\])?: FAIL: \S+ libwrap from=<HOST>$
03:32<praetorian>tcpwrappers ?
03:33<kenyon>looks like it, according to the comments
03:34<praetorian>actually the comments say *exactly* what it does.
03:34<praetorian>why are we having this discussion :p
03:34<kenyon>why didn't he do what we did
03:38-!-Knight [] has joined #linode
03:39-!-kertz [~kertz@] has joined #linode
03:39<tts>lol thx
03:41<tts>that was deceptively simple.
03:42<tts>so its my understanding that f2b works out of the box with sensible defaults by watching log files and doesnt need any extra configuration through the firewall, is that right?
03:43<kenyon>tts: on debian, for ssh, that's right. but only ssh.
03:43<tts>kenyon: ok, do you need to just manually add the jails for other filters (e.g. apache2)
03:44<tts>not jails chains*
03:44<kenyon>tts: probably just change enabled = false to enabled = true in /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf
03:44<tts>right did all that
03:44<kenyon>and make sure the other settings in there are correct for the jails you enable
03:44<tts>im just wondering if you need to configure the fw to do anything with f2b
03:45<tts>f2b didnt add any chains to my fw by default, should it have if i enabled like 6 jails?
03:46<dragonsd>i just migrated from fremont to dallas. how long do i have to wait for the site to be active?
03:46<dragonsd>i set TTL to 5min
03:46<@heckman>Have you issued the boot job and changed your DNS entries?
03:46<kenyon>tts: not sure, I only use the ssh and ssh-ddos jails, and the iptables chains were created automatically.
03:47<dragonsd>a/aaaa records?
03:47-!-thanwin [] has quit [Quit: Linkinus -]
03:47<dragonsd>i booted it. so now i have entered the new ip into a/aaaa records?
03:48<tts>kenyon: hmm ok, looks like the chains are just named after the jails and are set to "exit always".
03:48<@heckman>dragonsd: When did you add the record and what is your domain?
03:48<kenyon>tts: yes, that's right. fail2ban will insert offenders to those chains.
03:48-!-tts [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:49-!-tts [] has joined #linode
03:49<dragonsd>i just edited the previous record
03:52<@heckman>Our nameservers should be serving the new IPv4 address in about 9 minutes.
03:53<dragonsd>ok, so another 9 minutes, and i should be good?
03:54<@heckman>The name servers only pull record updates every quarter hour. If you updated your records around 3:49AM the next pull would be at 04:00AM. New records are usually served within a minute or two after that.
03:54<@heckman>Also, assuming all of your software is working with the new IPv4 address you should be good, yes.
03:56<dragonsd>ok, cool, thx.
03:56-!-tts [] has left #linode []
03:57<Alan>that's also assuming you don't have an obnoxious DNS cache in the way
03:57<@heckman>Well if the TTL was set to five minutes awhile ago then he should be good.
03:58<Alan>I'm sure there's more than one ISP that ignores TTL
03:58<@heckman>Then that ISP has a BOFH.
03:58<Alan>not disputing that
03:58<Alan>I don't trust ISPs to run a worthwhile DNS service
03:59<@heckman>Google Public DNS has been nice to me.
03:59<Alan>not since mine persisted in "accidentally" hijacking a few obscure domains persistently for months
03:59<Alan>I've been using opendns at home
04:00<Peng>Linode runs a worthwhile DNS service. :>
04:00-!-Knight [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

04:00<Alan>wrong kind of ISP
04:01<@ericoc>we're an internet service provider, but we don't really provide internet service?

04:01<@ericoc>something like that

04:03<dragonsd>hmm...still not working

04:09<dragonsd>now i get: "The requested URL / was not found on this server."
04:09<@heckman>Check your web server logs to determine what file/folder it's looking for. By chance did you specify your Linode's old IP in your web server's configuration?
04:10<Peng>You should grep /etc or maybe even / for the old IP.
04:10<Peng>heckman: Why didn't you drive there?
04:11<@heckman>Decided it was a good time to go visit family. I hadn't been back "home" in a few months.

07:53<chesty>that made you laugh out loud?
07:53<@Praefectus>JediMaster: itym 'pinged'
08:06<praetorian>no that's chestys shoes
08:07<JediMaster>yeah, well it was more of a chuckle
08:07<JediMaster>0.8ms was somewhat faster than I was expecting
08:07<praetorian>do you have sky? ;)
08:08<praetorian>can you stream me f1 next year?
08:08<JediMaster>yes, but no sports =P
08:08<Peng>JediMaster: Pretty reasonable for the BBC to have servers in London. :P
08:09<JediMaster>Peng: of course, but 0.8ms suggests it's probably really very close, like maybe teh same DC?
08:10<JediMaster>I've seen single routers add more than that in a single hop
08:10<Peng>JediMaster: You can get across a well-connected city in 0.8 ms.
08:12<@irgeek>If a router is adding 0.8ms to the latency, it probably needs to be replaced.

14:20<dragonsd>ok. thx

14:21<CPC>I've used namecheap
14:21<Daevien>jfw: i have some with &
14:21<jfw>And you'd both recommend them?
14:21<CPC>Okay well.. thoughts on fixing the issue guys? LBs are not an answer in this situation unless I can find a unified filesystem to use across them.
14:21<Guspaz>Is there any sort of PHP profiler you could use for this? If not, the only way to figure out the cause might be to try disabling some sites and see if one of them is causing the tons of CPU.
14:21<CPC>Yes, I have hundreds of domains with them jfw
14:21<Daevien>pricing is a bit different some some domains and there are a few differences between them is why i have some on each. overall, both work fine
14:22<jfw>Thanks guys!
14:22<jfw>Much appreciated
14:22<jfw>One last question, actually
14:22<jfw>Hah :)
14:22<Guspaz>You can do it more efficiently with a binary search; disable half the sites, see if CPU problems persist, if they do, disable half the remaining sites, and so on.
14:22<@Praefectus>you used up all your questions for the day, come back tomorrow
14:23<rnowak>we're closed tomorrow
14:23<jfw>Would you recommend those (or any) in particular for people that aren't terribly... tech-savvy? We prefer that our clients purchase their own domains, and it's nice to be able to recommend something that isn't GoDaddy
14:23<Daevien>CPC: i'd look for wordpress sites first myself, they are bad on resources if not properly configured and most people don't configure them right. so one of them on your node coudl be getting traffic spike and dragging the rest down
14:23<@Praefectus>rnowak: exactly

14:27<Guspaz>jfw: He's seeing very high CPU use (300%) with minimal RAM use. The presumption is that it's PHP (not Apache) causing the CPU use, but there's no easy way to know which PHP script is causing the CPU use.
14:27<CPC>I agree with you guys it most likely is a PHP script that is using too much resources on top of the high traffic
14:27<rnowak>so, profilers would be a logical next step
14:27<jfw>How many scripts/sites are we talking about?
14:27<Guspaz>The brute force of disabling sites to see which is causing it, and then continuing to narrow down more and more, that would work, but it's disruptive./
14:28<CPC>less than 50 sites
14:28<jfw>That's a lot of sites for such an approach
14:28<CPC>Most sites are either wordpress or custom with a framework
14:28<jfw>Definitely try xdebug
14:28<CPC>I can determine it down to a few sites based on how much traffic I see coming in
14:29<jfw>You can't assume traffic and CPU usage are related, though
14:29<Guspaz>Traffic is not really going to narrow it down. A very small amount of traffic could cause a very large amount of traffic if the only script they run does "while (true) {}"
14:29<jfw>It could be one really low-traffic site with an infinite loop in the code somewhere
14:29<CPC>Issue only happens when I am having high traffic
14:29<linbot>New news from forums: Podcast feed generators? in General Discussion <>
14:29<jfw>Guspaz: jinx :)
14:29<jfw>CPC: Could just be coincidence
14:30<jfw>You're running this stuff w/ mod_php in apache, right?
14:31<jfw>Any reason you don't want to try profiling w/ xdebug?
14:31<CPC>installing it now
14:31<Guspaz>xdebug profiling seems to help tell you what part of a single script is consuming CPU time, not which script?
14:32<sandeep>wouldn't running it for all scripts increase cpu usage?
14:32<jfw>sandeep, Yup. But only temporarily
14:33<jfw>Guspaz, I think you can enable it for everything, and then (possibly) have to open each output file separately
14:33<jfw>But it's been a long time since I've used that, so I don't recall
14:34<CPC>Installed, just trying to figure out why the lines they say to enable in php.ini aren't actually there
14:35<jfw>You have to add them; xdebug isn't included in PHP by default. (You also need to install it, in case that wasn't obvious)
14:35<CPC>Yep I did that, adding them now
14:35<jfw>Oh, you said "Installed". Heh. Nevermind
14:36<jfw>It *will* definitely slow things down while it's running--just be warned
14:36<sandeep>very bad idea for 'high traffic'
14:36<jfw>You might want to enable this option:
14:37<jfw>sandeep, Better than letting one script kill everything from time to time, though

14:39<CPC>jfw, done
14:39<jfw>CPC: You see anything in the output dir?
14:39<jfw>fannoj, Sounds like you've got something wacky in your .bashrc or .bash_profile

14:40<fannoj>jfw: when using putty [team@li373-67]:ââ:â[]âââââââ[~] >
14:40<jfw>How's the load looking so far?
14:41<jfw>fannoj, Try changing the terminal type in putty settings to "linux" or "xterm-color" or something like that
14:41<sandeep>if you have hundreds of hits/sec keep an eye on disk usage
14:41<fannoj>jfw: in putty ?
14:41<jfw>Yeah, good call. You have a lot of disk space free?
14:42<jfw>fannoj, Yeah, in the profile settings or whatever it's called. I haven't used putty in a long time, so I can't help much more than that
14:42<rnowak>as a permanent solution you might want to implement statsd which sends impressions over udp to a collector to graphite - pretty neat, if you like metrics
14:43<jfw>rnowak, That would require modifying all of the PHP code, no?
14:44<rnowak>jfw: sure, or other trickery which is possible but takes effort
14:44<jfw>rnowak, Gotcha.
14:44<CPC>My next plan is to break these sites onto different servers instead of having like 50 on one have like 10 per server or something since a LB-cloud approach is nice but requires a unified filesystem across each server within the LB so files stay in sync.
14:44<fannoj>jfw: dont seem to change anything tho using linux makes the outout in web terminal and in putty to be identical
14:45<CPC>jfw: this is all that Im seeing in the log
14:45<jfw>CPC: So, now, keep an eye on the disk usage (especially the "wa" in top) and watch the load. When the CPU spikes again, kill the profiling and load all those xdebug files into valgrind or whatever
14:45<sandeep>watch top and kill any php/apache process that takes up a lot of cpu. then wait for users to complain :o
14:46<jfw>fannoj, Yeah, you still probably have something weird in your bashrc
14:46<fannoj>lfw there is no file with that name tho
14:46<fannoj>only file i see is bashish.deb
14:46<jfw>CPC: You mean the files in the output dir?

15:04<rnowak>Daevien: ignore my comment, I read gem and ruby, that was all
15:04<Daevien>look at the example in the link i pasted.. looks like you tell it linode, tell it api key & thats about it?

15:50<seanh-ansca>by hand is really the way to go long term. but put stuff in a repo, or puppet

15:52<fastfinge>JshWright: mail() returns false, but I have been able to find any errors explaining why. Nothing is shown, and the logs I thought to check looked fine.
15:53<fastfinge>Never heard of puppet. And I don't run any kind of SVN. Was overkill for what I'm doing.
15:53<CPC>rnowak: the docs just say 'KCacheGrind' which I can't run.
15:53<rnowak>vcs is never overkill
15:54<seanh-ansca>fastfinge: if any of this stuff has a monitory value to being down, then it's not overkill
15:54<seanh-ansca>though i lean toward rnowak's camp and just put everything in a vcs out of habit
15:54<JshWright>fastfinge: there's no way to find out what the error is? not even a subsequent call to getErrors() or something?
15:55<JshWright>it's been a while since I've used PHP...

16:05<fastfinge>Okay, thanks for cluing me in to have a look at webmin. I just realized all the virtual hosts I set up in webmin were placing my logs in…unexpected places. So the main apache2 log was not showing errors. Might be able to solve this, now.

16:27<fastfinge>Okay, my problem is fixed. My logs are going where they're supposed to, and I now understand how php.ini works. Webmin was showing me, and making changes to, the wrong one. Once I found the correct file by checking phpinfo, it was easily corrected to have the right path to sendmail.
16:27<fastfinge>So, in short, I was looking at the wrong log file, and changing the wrong config files. For a week. *sigh*

16:38<fastfinge>JshWright: Never thought webmin could get it that wrong. I've been thinking of it like system prefs on OS X, and just assuming what it's doing was right. Are any of the commercial alternatives better?
16:39<JshWright>fastfinge: I have no idea, I prefer managing those files directly with something that gives you a better 'under the hood' understanding (like Puppet)
16:40<fastfinge>JshWright: I'll have a look at that. Unfortunately, if webmin is this bad, I may have to move away from linode to somewhere more managed. I don't have enough time in my life to be a full linux admin as well as my other work.
16:42<JshWright>fastfinge: or outsource the sysadmin stuff
16:43<fastfinge>JshWright: I was on shared hosting originally, but they did not have a JRE, and php was not compiled with bcmath. And I need both of those things. Linode was the only way I found to get them.

19:30<MTecknology>skegeek: Are you a business owner inside of the US asking for tax purposes?
19:31<skegeek>Business owner, yes; inside the U.S., yes; tax purposes, no
19:32<MTecknology>you are considered a consumer, you get to pay the tax linode charges in addition to a use tax which really screws you in the ass hard
19:32<@heckman>skegeek: DNS caching is to prevent the root name servers from being hit repetitively for the same records from the same resolver.
19:33-!-arooni-mobile [~arooni-mo@] has joined #linode

19:33<skegeek>I asked because I've seen a few articles before (targeted to business owners) referring to audience as consumers. I always thought of 'consumer buying' to be purchases for personal reasons.
19:33<@heckman>MTecknology: We charge tax?
19:34<MTecknology>heckman: well... i guess i just assumed that too... that it's part of the complete cost (we charge you $15, but we see $xx.xx and the rest is tax
19:35<skegeek>Oh ok. Caches are only if the requesting client already has ' a copy' then.
19:36<@heckman>And the once the TTL expries, it asks the authoritative server for the record next time someone asks it and caches it for the TTL.
19:36<bob2>your ISP already has a cache on their resolver, as does linode on theirs
19:36<@heckman>Well...supposed to cache it for the TTL.

19:39<@heckman>Well, I guess items is a wrong term. We don't charge tax for our services.
19:39<bob2>skegeek, note, you need to be clear on the difference between an authorotative dns server and a recurisve caching resolver

20:48<Daevien>unity, the os/2 warp of linux. nice concept, horrible result
20:49<@heckman>I dunno. It's seems like everyone is trying to simplify the user interface which makes power users need to do more work to be as productive.
20:49<Daevien>sadly half the channel prob had to go lookup os/2 warp as they are too young
20:49*Obsidian|server is sticking with mint + gnome2
20:50<@heckman>Daevien: I am too young, but I know what it is.
20:50<Daevien>ditch unity, install xfce. fairly minimal but has options most people need & doesn't have the horrible resources of other options or annoyance factor of unity

20:53<@heckman>Daevien: Only reason I've not hopped ship to OpenBox is because I am too unmotivated to spend time getting it configured, plus I could never find a panel that I like. However, with mentioning tint2 you've taken care of one of those problems.

20:54<Daevien>there are some decent choices
20:54<ajmitch>so much unity hate around here :)
20:54<@heckman>Also. Rest in peace Steve Jobs.
20:54<Daevien>tint2 is pretty basic, i'm actually playing around with leaving tint2 up top and somethign else for jsut quick launchers essentially
20:55<@heckman>It's a bit heavy, but cairo dock is nice.
20:55*ajmitch is going to try out unity on oneiric & see if he can use it seriously for a few days
20:55<Daevien>i've had issues with cairo, mostly cause i don't want to load compiz
20:55<Daevien>ajmitch: i lasted maybe a day befor ei raged at unity and fdisk'd the install :p
20:55<MTecknology>like.. omg.. it's like.. so totally.. the exact same thing
20:55<ajmitch>Daevien: I've had unity on natty for a few months on my desktop at home, but I end up using my laptop more
20:56<@heckman>You can disable OpenGL stuff on it. I run Compiz on my desktop as I have the oomph to use it. My noteboot, well it might, but I'm not really needing compiz stuff.
20:56<Daevien>ajmitch: i found how it did stuff was annoying at best, sporadic at worst
20:56<Obsidian|server>ajmitch: I like how I have gnome2 configured more than how ubuntu decides how I should use unity
20:56<Daevien>yeah you can run cairo without compiz but it doesn't work quite as well i found an di gave up and threw tint2 back on
20:56<ajmitch>Daevien: it's all the little bugs in the rather rushed natty release of it that irk me
20:57<MTecknology>my keyboard is acting a bit odd, but other than that- the exact same thing

22:10<Kane`>ayo, #linode, i gots SSL troubles.
22:10<Kane`>does ca-certificates, on debian, provide GoDaddy's root/intermediate certs?
22:11<bd_>I imagine the root cert's probably there, but servers are generally expected to provide the client with the intermediate certs
22:11<Obsidian|server>odd - is loading very slowly
22:11<Kane`>well, my apache vhost has 'SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKeyFile' setup but i'm missing 'SSLCACertificateFile and SSLCertificateChainFile'
22:12<Kane`>so i figured i need to point apache to the root cert and the intermediate cert
22:12<Kane`>but a `ls /etc/ssl/certs | grep gd` is returning nothing
22:12<bd_>You don't need SSLCACertificateFile
22:13*Kane` downloads the intermediate cert
22:13<bd_>SSLCACertificateFile is only for if you're authenticating _clients_ using _client_ certificates
22:13<bd_>which basically nobody actually does
22:14<Kane`>is there a recommended place to store intermediate certs? /etc/ssl/localcerts ?

23:45<hitman>how do I add a sub-domain, and an A record to it?
23:45<bob2>in the linode dns manager?

23:46<linbot>kyhwana: (dns <host|ip>) -- Returns the ip of <host> or the reverse DNS hostname of <ip>.
23:47<kyhwana>I thought the linode DNS manager was realtively straight forward
23:47<hitman>should "Add a new A record" ?
23:47<kyhwana>hitman: yes

23:48<@heckman>There are plenty of little jokes in everything. :)
23:48*ajmitch wonders why people are wanting disable ipv6 on their linode
23:49<kyhwana>ajmitch: They're still stuck in the 90s?
23:49<jspiros>Wait, there's ipv6 now?
23:49<linbot>IPv6 is currently available in Fremont, Dallas, and Newark. The London and Atlanta facilities are currently undergoing internal testing, and Tokyo is in progress. More info:
23:49<kyhwana>and are retarded, or something.
23:49<jspiros>How exciting
23:49<jspiros>Don't need to tunnel anymore
23:49<@heckman>jspiros: You're a few months late... :p
23:50<A-KO>people actually want to turn off ipv6?
23:50<A-KO>Stupid is as stupid does.
23:50<kyhwana>A-KO: I know, but people are stupid, so it makes sense, I guess.
23:51<bob2>is "INTERNAL TESTING" better or worse than "IN PROGRESS"?
23:52<bob2>viz a viz tokyo ipv6
23:52<StevenK>bob2: PROGRESS
23:52<@heckman>Internal Testing means that we are testing the IPv6 functionality. In progress means we are working on getting it to a point where there can be internal testing. :p
23:52<bob2>heckman, ah thanks
23:52<A-KO>kyhwana: I'm looking at giving a presentation on IPv6 at the local hackerspace, starting with addressing--I've got a lot of the slides done, but picking various portions and explaining it to people at times exposes flaws in my explanation, but mostly on the level of people not understanding the binary behind an ip address and subnets
23:52<bob2>now now now
