01:32<phorce1_home>hmmmm, squeeze ... nVidia 520, nVidia drivers. Unplugged the cable to my hdmi monitor to test something and now it won't "come back". Any way to force redetection without a reboot?

03:22<Zee>Hi guys.
03:22<Zee>I have a question regarding servers, storage and such
03:23<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask. We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer try a few hours later or on See <smart questions><errors>.
03:23-!-quentusrex_ [] has joined #debian
03:23<Zee>What application can I use to mount space from X slave servers to the SAME dir on master server?
03:24<Zee>sshfs cannot do this..
03:24<Zee>can nfs?
03:24<pparadis>Zee: it sounds like you're talking about a clustered file system implementation.
03:24-!-grandie [] has joined #debian
03:24<Zee>yes, it is
03:24<Zee>im running a cloud service..
03:24<pparadis> ||
03:25-!-DebianLover [] has joined #debian
03:25<Zee>alright.. so in you oppinion, which of the two is easiest and which is best suitable?
03:26-!-sidmo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:28<pparadis>Zee: that's a very loaded question, and not one for me to answer for you. my best advice is to set up test environments, learn how these systems work, decide which seems best suited for your needs, and proceed with caution.
03:28<pparadis>especially if you're going to be providing services to customers based on such a setup, you really need to understand these things inside and out.
03:28<Zee>yes, I was just about to write that.. Ill be starting off with ocfs2.. Looks simplest.. And in most cases, the simple things work!
03:29<pparadis>nod, enjoy :)
03:29<Zee>were only in the idea stage of thiings!
03:29<Zee>i have a final question!
03:30<Zee>Is it possible to convert a current setup to ocfs2 or GFS etc
03:30<unknown_lamer>I am going to have to run kgdb today, and hope I can debug a bug that only happens with two processors online and results in the hardware locking hard without so much as a peep from the kernel on a serial console
03:30-!-__iron [] has joined #debian
03:30<unknown_lamer>may rms have mercy upon my soul
03:30<pparadis>the short answer is "there is not automated means of doing what you are asking" and the long answer is "you'll understand the short answer once you get a bit further down the road"
03:30<Zee>I, for good reasons, cant go to singapore, tokyo etc to be at the terminal.
03:30-!-sidmo_ [] has joined #debian
03:31<unknown_lamer>When in doubt, just use openafs
03:31-!-Mimiko [~Mimiko@] has joined #debian
03:31<Zee>ok.. So it is possible to fdisk remotely on a currently running server!
03:31<pparadis>Zee: sure, with remote console access.
03:31-!-hubutm20 [~hubutm20@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:31<pparadis>and only if the filesystem supports fsck and it's mounted read-only.
03:31<pparadis>(preferably not even mounted)
03:32<pparadis>oh, sorry, you said fdisk, not fsck.
03:32<Zee>i use putty to connect to my vps's..
03:32<Zee>were creating a set of vps's around the world, to test this out..
03:34<pparadis>yep, it's possible to do fdisk as well, although you need to use extreme care and you can't shrink partitions/filesystems while they're online for ext2/3/4, and you really should do it from an alternate OS environment if possible... see man pages for fdisk/parted/etc for details.
03:34<Zee>we have some ideas about cloud storage etc, ip based.
03:34<pparadis>i've done remote root partition resizing using only ssh access by creating a modified initrd that did the needful at boot time, but that's not for the faint of heart.
03:34<pparadis>(and it still required a reboot)
03:35<Zee>i have alot of tools at disposal.. I can boot the vps in rescue mode.. I should be able to alter the FS there, set up the correct fstab environment and then boot it up!
03:35<pparadis>for this stuff, you really want to be able to boot into a recovery/livecd environment of some sort and access it via console (which may be a virtual console for VMs)
03:36<pparadis>rescue mode... sounds like you're using linode.
03:36<Zee>yeps :) Just my thought :)
03:36<Zee>nah, its running debian squeeze x64
03:36<pparadis>right, i mean who is the hosting provider?
03:36-!-safinaskar [~safinaska@] has joined #debian
03:36<Zee>what the host use for virtual environment, i dont know.
03:37<pparadis>heh, i'm quite familiar with them. yes, rescue mode is your friend.
03:37<pparadis>do they actually call it rescue mode now?
03:37-!-toabctl [] has joined #debian
03:37-!-foolano [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:37<Zee>since youre quite familiar with thise blokes, is it a good or bad thing? :)
03:38<pparadis>this is not the appropriate place for me to make any such value statements.
03:38<pparadis>we're just here for debian support :)
03:38<Zee>yup :)
03:38<Zee>and no, its called, boot in recovery

04:02<grandie>for security purposes. should i use a proxy or firewall configuration in setting up my debian system, thanks
04:04-!-Jekyll [~whodare@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
04:06<TheBonsai>if the dsl router is a NATing router, there is a kind of "implicit firewalll" for the LAN behind that router (due to the NAT engine), unless you configure virtual servers (port forwarding) and the like

04:09-!-Out`Of`Control [] has joined #debian
04:11-!-Jekyll [~whodare@] has joined #debian
04:13<grandie>TheBonsai: yes thanks, what i am interested in is whether or not i would gain any additional security in using them
04:15<TheBonsai>you would. if it makes sense (if the price is too high for the benefit) or not is on another paper.
04:16<pparadis>grandie: you need to start by understanding what firewalls do. in basic terms, they permit or deny traffic to services based on source and/or destination, and in some cases stateful inspection of the traffic. there are certain appliances designed to inspect traffic for certain characteristics and take certain additional filtering actions on it, but this is not exactly a commonly implemented thing.
04:16-!-mgaunard_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:16<TheBonsai>what do you want to protect?
04:17<grandie>my system
04:17<TheBonsai>private LAN? soho? enterpris environment?
04:17<grandie>i was lead to believe that it was a must
04:17<pparadis>grandie: there are different classes of threats, such as service vulnerabilities, application layer vulnerabilities, etc. penetration testing and threat mitigation planning is about identifying what you want to protect, what its value is, what compromises of different sorts would cost, etc.
04:18<pparadis>what the cost of attacking it is, what standards are in place for data protection, etc. but really this all starts with understanding that firewalls are not magical cloaks.
04:18<grandie>i guess what i am trying to find is a way to make sure nothing gets in that i don't invite
04:18<pparadis>that's what the entire world wants :)
04:18<TheBonsai>disconnect the box from the network :)
04:18<pparadis>but there is an old saying, from bruce schneier in fact: "security is a process, not a product"
04:19-!-scientes [] has joined #debian
04:19<pparadis>grandie: buy his books and read them -->
04:20<grandie>thanks i already there, later
04:20<pparadis>grandie: a couple of fun links --> &&
04:21<TheBonsai>your NATing router provides a kind of basic network level security, that's all (and usually enough on this level). client-side security should be added (like protection of webbrowsers or email programs, virus stuff). IMHO enough for private use
04:22<pparadis>nod, it really comes down to "subscribe to security lists [see], keep your systems up to date, know what apps you're running, audit custom code carefully, always wear your seatbelt."
04:22<TheBonsai>"always wear your seatbelt" :)
04:22-!-toni2_ [~toni2_@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:22<grandie>TheBonsai: pparadis: thank you for the feedback, this old man needs to do a lot more reading in getting his debian system setup.
04:23<pparadis>oh and of course "don't be a nice guy and give your buddies random shell accounts on your servers"
04:23<TheBonsai>but also keep in mind that "security sensitivity" is OK, but "blind fear" is useless
04:23<pparadis>grandie: see also -->
04:23<grandie>i gave at the office, not from home, thanks
04:24-!-se7en [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:24<pparadis>TheBonsai: yep, at some point things have to be useful and you've gotta be realistic about the value of what's being protected.

05:13<sml>hey all. I have a dual boot setup with Win7 Home (windows tax, which i kept just because i'd paid for it!) and CentOS and they use grub to boot. i have about 70gb of unpartitioned space on my harddrive and want to install debian and triple boot. now.. how to install debian so that the other two arent' fscked?
05:14<sml>install debian but dont install a boot loader? then boot into centos and run grub?
05:16<TheBonsai>at least "configure in grub", yes. and you can of course re-use the swap partition, if any, for the additional linux
05:16-!-vagvaf [~vagvaf@] has joined #debian
05:17<sml>yes. good point about teh swap part. hadn't thought of that. i just didn't want the two to have a war over who owns the bootloader as they'll no doubt be usnig different versionf of grub
05:17<sml>erm. appologies for very bad typing there! wet fingers
05:17<TheBonsai>i don't know how the debian installer sees that. i don't multiboot
05:18<sml>I thought maybe the best way would be to install debian but do it without installing a bootloader. then boot into centos and rescan for new OSes and reboot.

05:19-!-marco_craveiro [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:19<TheBonsai>sounds okay, but i don't know the possibilities of the installer in this case (that's what i meant above). but i think you can choose not to install a loader
05:20-!-thkoch [] has joined #debian
05:21-!-WildTux [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

05:48<sml>SynrG: it is a laptop..
05:49<SynrG>do you suspend (to ram) or hibernate (to disk)?
05:50-!-mode/#debian [+l 494] by debhelper
05:50<SynrG>the former is fine. the latter uses swap
05:50<SynrG>your hibernation image will be wiped by the other OS if you share swap
05:50<dragondon>thanks SynrG , maybe there'll be better instructs for it :)
05:51-!-allen [~allen@] has quit []
05:51<sml>SynrG: i occasionally hibernate but usually i just shutdown as my laptop boots in about 20s anyway
05:51<sml>i can just share swap but remember to never hibernate
05:51<SynrG>or hibernate, but never: 1. hibernate 2. boot to another OS 3. expect to be able to resume from your now wiped hibernation image
05:51<sml>v. seldom use it anyway. if i got loads of stuff open and i dont have a power supply handy i use it. otherwise not.
05:52<sml>SynrG: just easier to never use hibernate. my memory is not so good ;-)
05:52<SynrG>or don't share swap
05:52<sml>SynrG: but then i waste 4GB of disk
05:53-!-grandie [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
05:53<SynrG>if you consider hibernate to not be useful, by all means, don't use it :)
05:53<sml>TheBonsai: well using 4GB on a feature i seldom use. can just as easily have 4GB more disk and never hibernate
05:53<sml>SynrG: well, indeed :) it's a trade off
05:53-!-Quintasan_ [] has joined #debian
05:53<sml>thanks for all the thoughts. i'll go install :)
05:54<SynrG>while we're on the topic of wasting ...
05:54<SynrG>if you don't hibernate, 4G of swap is probably excessive

05:55<SynrG>by the time you dip into swap, your system performance is suffering enough so that you probably just want to exit one or more memory-hungry apps ...
05:55-!-Quintasan [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
05:55<SynrG>you could do without swap entirely, or else drastically downsize it
05:55-!-lord_rob [] has joined #debian
05:55<sml>SynrG: well old dogma stated 2xRAM, but i just set it to my size of RAM, 4GB, just in case i needed to hibernate ever. 8GB of swap seemed a lot.
05:55<TheBonsai>well, reminds me of the other box with 90G swap for support reasons :)
05:56<dragondon>SynrG, well, those instructions were way too detailed and gets complicated real fast. Thanks any ways.
05:56<SynrG>2xRAM might have made sense when memory was very expensive and swap was a necessity ...

05:57<SynrG>sml: you could try just turning off swap entirely and see if it makes any difference whatsoever. swapoff -a
05:57-!-javier [] has joined #debian
05:57<sml>SynrG: i might do that. i doubt it will as i've never seen swap used in top.
05:57<SynrG>try that for a while. i bet you don't miss it :) at the end of the experiment, recycle that space

05:59<TheBonsai>IMHO active swap space has its usage
05:59<TheBonsai>and if it's only holding the foobarxy-daemon memory you need once a month
05:59<sml>what happens if you DON'T have swap and you try to hibernate. hopefully you get a warning of some kind saying it can't hibernate ?

07:29<Waxhead>Hi, I just upgraded my motherboard from a old p4 to core i5 quad core type thing. Anyway since I am running 32bit I wanted to access more memory so I installed the amd64 kernel. Now virtualbox (from backports) refuses to start any vm's complaining that I need to modprobe vboxdrv who is already there (lsmod). Is this a know problem?
07:30<abrotman>Waxhead: you sohuld ahve probably just used the -pae
07:30<abrotman>Waxhead: or if your /home/ is separate, do a full reinstall
07:30-!-cyril [~cyril@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:30<Waxhead>abrotman. K, so I just "downgrade" to a bigmem kernel and try then....
07:31<Waxhead>a reinstall is a bit "violent"....
07:32-!-cybersphinx [] has joined #debian
07:33<gdb>Keep a backup of /home, /etc, /opt (if you use it), /usr/local (if you use it), and bits of pieces of whatever custom you have in /var/*, /srv, and so on and a reinstall can take you a half hour tops.

14:53<movl>if there is a system message, it will be broadcast to the first tty, irrespective of or if someone is logged in

15:19<unknown_lamer>sney: yeah, I tried KNOPPIX from may and still no dice... going to try a livecd from january next
15:19<martina>after 3 '' the movies stop and my pc freez
15:20<unknown_lamer>sney: after that comes the fun of "how the hell do you bisect this?"
15:20<sney>no need to go to that extreme when there's a load of kernels on and upstream. your smp system should build them in a hurry
15:20<unknown_lamer>I'm really not sure how you can when the kernel/X server/DDX driver/Mesa driver all have to be in lockstop
15:21<sney>haha, yeah, I just did the bisect dance too, though mine found the cause of a weird wifi bug
15:21<sney>hmm, indeed
15:21<sney>are you on squeeze?
15:21<unknown_lamer>squeeze still does UMS and would probably work fine with my r200 and go boom with my rv530
15:22<unknown_lamer>the knoppix idea seems reasonable for tacking down a "it started after $date"
15:22<unknown_lamer>just boot and start xscreensaver and if it dies... well then
15:22<sney>yeah, and then at least you can narrow it down a bit
15:23<sney>I'd file a bug as well if you haven't already. the kernel team may have some insights that you haven't come up with yet. Also, per the /topic, the wheezy support channel is #debian-next

18:18<abrotman>do any commands after that get executed ?

18:49<Stereo>hi everyone
18:50<Stereo>I have a security question, and I think I have the answer, but I'm not sure I've thought it through properly
18:51-!-mercutio22 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:51<Stereo>imagine you have a php app, and it stores its config in /etc/foo/foo.ini. /etc/foo happens to be world writable. Of course this means anyone on this machine can influence how foo works and maybe run stuff as www-data, but are there any other risks I'm overlooking?

19:12<abrotman>Stereo: think of it this way, www-data could write any file it wanted in that directory
19:12<abrotman>a binary, a symlink .. anything
19:12<Stereo>*anyone* could write any file they wanted in that directory
19:12<abrotman>yes .. but i'm saying that as a www-data thing .. but yes, anyone could write anything
19:13<Stereo>but all that directory contains is the php app's ini file, and a symlink to the cron.daily file
19:13<abrotman>for now ..
19:13<Stereo>the cron.daily script runs as root, but doesn't use anything from that directory

20:47<xtoaster>hello, If i am on travell to US with my debian laptop set to CN locale, can I have the US local time without chaning my system locale to US ?
20:48<scientes>xtoaster, yes
20:48<scientes>xtoaster, dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
20:49<scientes>xtoaster, realize that timezones in linux are just for display however, all files and other timestamps use unix time
20:49<scientes>which is similar to UTC
20:50<xtoaster>so that will change the display, need I set the timezone somewhere ?
20:51<abrotman>unix timestamps are similar to UTC how ?

20:51-!-sorina [~sorina@] has joined #debian
20:51<abrotman>wasn't what i asked ...
20:51<scientes>xtoaster, cause you configured that when you installed debian

20:52*abrotman waits for scientes to explain
20:53<xtoaster>but I was supposed to travel cross timezones, i think i need to set timezone for display the local time(not china time)
20:53<scientes>abrotman, because there is no DST and it is not IAT
20:53<abrotman>scientes: try again
20:53<scientes>xtoaster, setting your timezone sets how times are displayed and when DST changes
20:54<xtoaster>ok. so where should I change the timezone for display ?

20:57<lloyd>Hi there got a problem with a fresh install of squeeze
20:57*abrotman thinks someone is confused ...

20:58<pparadis>scientes: what abrotman is saying is that unix epoch time is simply the number of seconds since 00:00:00 UTC 1970-01-01, but that's where any relationship with UTC ends. from the wikipedia page, "It is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC." this is why things like Date::Manip exist, because time calculations broken out into things like days, months, and years is fraught with nutty issues.
20:58<pparadis>(it's worth noting that the very value of 0 zero UTC 1970 isn't concrete)
20:59<scientes>pparadis, yes i am aware POSIX doesn't require clocks to be synronized
20:59<abrotman>wow ...
20:59<abrotman>lloyd: have more details for us ?
20:59<lloyd>Most other distros seem to run smooth (EG moving a window isn't slow and laggy) but with debian it is horribly slow, the only way I have got around this before is to disable kernel mode setting but then X would always use something like a point 3 font
20:59<scientes>"Unix time cannot unambiguously represent UTC leap seconds (e.g. December 31, 1998 23:59:60), although otherwise the times it represents are UTC."
20:59<scientes>its largely UTC, not IAT
21:00<scientes>and is based on UTC
21:00<lloyd>resizing windows takes maybe a second or 2
21:00<scientes>therefore "similar"
21:00<lloyd>its really noticeable
21:00<abrotman>lloyd: what is your video card
21:00<scientes>lloyd, lspci | grep VGA
21:00<lloyd>hang on
21:00<abrotman>scientes: that's not really helpful, or shows that they're similar
21:01<lloyd>00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
21:01<pparadis>scientes: unix time truly has _no_ concept of leap anything, and the above statement is logically inconsistent at its core. but really, this is offtopic anyhow, so let's get back to debian support.
21:01<scientes>pparadis, "that's where any relationship with UTC ends." --this isn't true
21:01<scientes>unix time is suppose to stop for one second when there is a UTC leap second
21:01<abrotman>scientes: you're wrong, end of discussion

21:41<scientes>lloyd, it would probably run like other distros if you upgraded your kernel to the 3.2 backport kenel
21:41<lloyd>how do I do that?
21:41<scientes>thats probably the diff, rhel6 would probably be as bad, as it runs largely the same ancient kernel
21:41<dpkg>A backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and <ABI> complications. (2.7.4 and 2.7.10), . Ask me about <debian-backports> and <backport caveat>. See also <simple sid backport>.

22:59<abrotman>i suppose .. i'm skeptical .. but sure!
22:59<lloyd>it will probably panic again
22:59<abrotman>and i'm not awake much longer
22:59<lloyd>may have to moan on the forums :(
22:59<abrotman>if you want, have someone help you go to the xorg in backports
22:59<abrotman>that'd have been my next step
23:00<lloyd>if i dont come back ive given up, gone to bed, and will be forum posting it
23:00<lloyd>ah ok thanks
23:00<lloyd>well thanks for your help !
23:00<abrotman>so the basic part would be : aptitude -t squeeze-backports install xorg
23:00<abrotman>good luck
23:00<lloyd>ill need it

23:45<hkb>Does anyone know if using a 3Tera Byte drive will cause a problem on Wheezy?
23:46<unknown_lamer>shouldn't, but your bios might not let you boot past the 2TB mark or something ;)

23:47<hkb>I am having a problem after the boot starts but when it is checking out the ata drives ... It seems to lock
23:47<hkb>I am booting off the 3terabyte drive
23:48<hkb>Does anyone know if Wheezy is having problems with the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX
23:50<pparadis>hkb: i believe you asked this before, and i asked for more information. please provide as much information as possible regarding exactly what you're seeing instead of it working. also, i noted that you PMed me earlier; please keep questions here, where the discussion can benefit everyone.

23:53<hkb>Today I downloaded the DVD #1 iso and intalled the Wheezy. I installed from a the default mirror. There were no problems.
23:53<hkb>I went into grub and eliminated the quiet entry so I could see more of the boot process.
23:54<hkb>When it gets to around the ATA section it hangs.
23:56<hkb>The last boot ... The last line printed was an entry dealing with the 3Tera byte drive

23:57<hkb>pparadis ... What more information should I try to provide
23:58<hkb>Would the numeric value next to the last line help ID the entry?
23:58<pparadis>hkb: it worked perfectly until you removed the quiet flag?
23:59<hkb>Before I removed the quiet entry it would only show 4 lines and then hang. Once quiet was removed it showed more of what was going on.
