08:48<dggoldst>i am here
09:12<dggoldst>anybody know how to install vncserver?
09:20<kvandivo>inevitably, yes
09:24<dggoldst>i have a fresh debian install (ubuntu actually) and vncserver command is not found
09:24<dggoldst>i imagine I have to install some kind of window system?
09:25<kvandivo>apt-get install tightvncserver, maybe?
09:25|-|Redgore [~Redgore@] has joined #linode
09:26<dggoldst>but how did you know that kvandivo?
09:26<kvandivo>well, i happen to know because i'm kvandivo.. but a quick google search for vnc server debian would probably reveal things as well
09:27<anderiv>ooh - look who has a big ego this morning
09:28[~]kvandivo throws back his head and cackles with insane glee.
09:28<dggoldst>root@none:~ # apt-get install tightvncserver
09:28<dggoldst>E: Couldn't find package tightvncserver
09:28<kvandivo>try a apt-cache search vncserver
09:28<dggoldst>ok trying ...
09:29<dggoldst>it says xvncviewer - Virtual network computing client software for X
09:29<kvandivo>!google ubuntu vncserver
09:29<linbot>kvandivo: Search took 0.28 seconds: Ubuntu -- vncserver: <>; VNCSERVER doesn't work [Archive] - Ubuntu Forums: <>; Can't connect to vncserver running on Ubuntu Linux box: <>; Can't connect to vncserver running on Ubuntu Linux box: (2 more messages)
09:31<dggoldst>ok, trying trying
09:32<dggoldst>so, what does the output of the apt-cache tell me?
09:32<kvandivo>packages that are available in your world
09:41<dggoldst>holy cow i think i did it
09:41<dggoldst>i needed to unhash the universe lines in my sources list

14:37<wibble>i'm looking to purchase linode 80 for a year. the page says that there is only one linode 120 available. is availability volatile or will that situation remain for days ?
14:37<kvandivo>very volatile
14:38<wibble>kvandivo: oic. i was suprised that all options weren't available.
14:39<kvandivo>yep.. they are too popular
14:43<wibble>i shall check availability later tonight, then. thanks kvandivo !

15:59<blech>li-22 down (now called host 40)
15:59<blech>looks like it was time for the weekly kernel panic
16:02<blech>8 panics since Dec 31
16:02<GN>sounds like my network administrator
16:03<blech>5 in the past 30 days
16:03<blech>is there a way to apply for a xfer to a different host?
16:03<blech>host40 was the replacement for host22 (aka Hindenburg)
16:04<GN>yeah i was on host22 also

22:32|-|spr [] has quit [Quit: Spoon!]
22:36<alan>has anyone here done a memory (more ram) upgrade to their linode?
22:41<Spads>we all got one a while back
22:41<Spads>turned the 64s into 80s, etc
22:43|-|interferon [] has joined #linode
22:44<interferon>if i migrate to a new linode plan, will my data just be transferred onto the new VM, or will i have to start from scratch?
22:44<alan>did the upgrade kick in right away? or was there a delay (presumably)
22:46<Spads>it was the moment you rebooted
22:47<Spads>interferon: it can be migrated, but if you're going to a smaller plan, you'll need to downsize your data etc
22:47<Spads>chances are you don't need to migrate to a new host to take advantage of a new plan
22:47<interferon>Spads, i'm moving upwards, so that shouldn't be a problem. thanks
22:47<Spads>should just be a simple reboot

23:09<interferon>i use ubuntu on my home computer, but should i be using debian instead on my linode?
23:28|-|FireSlash [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:28<Spads>interferon: use whichever you like
23:29<Spads>interferon: ubuntu is working on their server-side subdistribution lately, and it is nice to get a new release every six months instead of every four years
23:30<Beirdo>and ubuntu proper works fine as a server
23:31<Beirdo>you don't HAVE to install all the Gnome stuff, etc :)
23:41<interferon>in the time between my question and now i decided to go with ubuntu :)
23:41<interferon>but thanks for making me feel more confident in the choice i made
23:42<Spads>I stand behind your irresponsible rush to conclusions
23:42<interferon>always a good call
23:52<taupehat>err, wrong chan
23:52<Spads>I seeeeee
