09:08<andrewtayloruk_>Hi, anyone know why I'm getting this -helper: mount failed: File exists- I'm on host 39, I wonder if I caused the panic :(
09:11<andrewtayloruk_>Sorry - for clarification, this is on trying to boot a new image
09:14<@mikegrb>you are booting the wrong profile
09:14<andrewtayloruk_>many thanks
09:14<@mikegrb>the profile you are trying to boot doesn't have any disk images associated with it
09:14<@mikegrb>no problem
09:15<andrewtayloruk_>anyway i can remove profiles? i've got three now all the same name
09:15<kvandivo>that doesn't seem wise
09:15<@mikegrb>click on it, then the editor has a link/button at the bottom to remove
09:16<andrewtayloruk_>thanks again
09:16<@mikegrb>no problem
09:19<andrewtayloruk_>is there a local debian mirror on the linode network?
09:21<@mikegrb>unfortunately not
09:25<andrewtayloruk_>you're based in FL aren't you?
09:30<cow>kernel panic on host41?
09:33<cow>mikegrb: my host didn't boot up on the server restart
09:35<@mikegrb>[root@host41 root]# uptime
09:35<@mikegrb> 10:34:40 up 101 days, 37 min, 3 users, load average: 2.25, 2.57, 1.99
09:35<@mikegrb>andrewtayloruk_: yes, I am
09:37<cow>is it possible that I had a kernel panic?
09:37<@mikegrb>could be
09:37<cow>JobID: 204408 - Host initiated restart
09:37<@mikegrb>what's the username? can also check logview via lish
09:37<cow>JobID: 209904 - Host initiated restart
09:38<cow>hrmm ignore those jobids
09:38<cow>they were old...
09:38|-|spr [] has joined #linode
09:38<cow>eh can i export logview?
09:38<cow>its ... goin nuts
09:38|-|sec39 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:39<@mikegrb>__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1d2/0)
09:39<@mikegrb>__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1d2/0)

09:39<@mikegrb>__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1d2/0)
09:39<@mikegrb>Kernel panic: munmap failed, errno = 22
09:39<@mikegrb>looks like you ran out of ram + swap
09:40<cow>any pointers on how to figure out which program caused the panic?
09:41<@mikegrb>not so much after the fact
09:41<@mikegrb>lemme look before that started
09:42<@mikegrb>Another email program is accessing INBOX. Session now Read-Only.]ESC[27mESC[37mESC[40mESC[41;1HKilled^M
09:42<@mikegrb>and then a prompt and then the __aloc_pages errors
09:43<@mikegrb>it is entirely possible they are unrelated
09:43<@mikegrb>the killed message could be from hours after the other message was printed
09:43<@mikegrb>just keep an eye on mem/swap usage and if you notice it getting higher then normal sort by mem in top
09:46<cow>maybe pine was killing the server
09:46<@mikegrb>not /real/ likely
09:46<cow>server was up at 9:38... heh
09:46<cow>thanks mike
09:46<@mikegrb>it's pretty old and thus stable
09:46|-|sec39 [] has joined #linode
09:48<kvandivo>so you're saying old stuff is more stable than young stuff
09:49<cow>windows 95 is old :P
09:49|-|jekil [~alessandr@] has joined #linode
09:50<@mikegrb>kvandivo: 45 year olds are more stable then 21 year olds, no?
09:50<@mikegrb>cow: old and continously being improved
09:50<@mikegrb>well, perhaps the midlife crisis thing
09:51<cow>i'm probably more stable than my dad
09:51<@mikegrb> <--- I should have gone to that school
09:51<cow>mikegrb: windows... vista? :P
09:52<cow>unless you debate the "improvements" hehe
09:52[~]mikegrb restricts his observation to oss
09:52<cow>lol i thought so
09:52<@mikegrb>Eighth graders build giant awesome gymnasium rollercoaster
09:52<@mikegrb>California middle-school students have built an impressive, indoor roller-coaster in their school gymnasium:
10:00<andrewtayloruk_>mikegrb - i'm coming your way in 20 days, 9 hours. Can't wait, you've currently got 55F more than we've got here
10:01<@mikegrb>the A/C guy was here yesterday
10:02<andrewtayloruk_>you could say the same here, we had about 8" of snow over the weekend
10:02<Spads>he fixed mikegrb's alternator
10:02<Spads>and tuned his inverter
10:02<Spads>I had to go to the DC guy last month, and he gave me a rectifier exam.
10:03<andrewtayloruk_>If I generate a public key file then copy it on to my usb memory stick, then re-format my laptop, the key is still going to work when I copy it back isn't it. I know if I generated a new key it would be different.
10:06<bendy24>andrewtayloruk_: dont forget about the private key
10:06<bendy24>if you genereated it on the laptop
10:07<andrewtayloruk_>excellent, glad you said that
10:07<bendy24>without the private key, the pub key is useless
10:08<andrewtayloruk_>okay, but, once i've got both id_rsa and I should be ok
10:09<bendy24>yes, if id_rsa is the priv key
10:10<Spads>remember that for most situations, "private key" is the real *key* the way we'd think of it, and the "public key" is really a *lock*
10:19<tsi>ahahahahahahaha spads that dc comment is priceless
10:19<Spads>I'm glad *someone* liked iT!
10:27<andrewtayloruk_>Anyone know what 'xinupageserver' is it's on port 2020
10:28<Spads>it seems to show up a lot in /etc/services, but I don't think anybody uses it
10:28<Spads>see, Xinu was this academic Unix from a textbook, sort of like minix was
10:29<Spads>so do you actually see xinupageserver in your process list, or did you nmap your box and see something on 2020 that nmap said was xinupageserver?
10:29<andrewtayloruk_>the latter
10:29<andrewtayloruk_>it's brand new debian small install
10:31<Spads>okay, so what you should do first is install lsof
10:31<Spads>sagi lsof
10:32<andrewtayloruk_>is sagi another packagea?
10:32<Spads>"sudo apt-get install"
10:32<Spads>I have an alias
10:33<Spads>and we pronounce it 'saggy' out loud
10:34<Spads>then you can "sudo lsof -i | grep 2020"
10:34<Spads>I forget how to restrict the port number as a flag to lsof, but that works
10:34<Spads>and lsof's man page is a bear to navigate
10:37<andrewtayloruk_>nope, nothing listed
10:37<Spads>does it still show up on nmap?
10:38<Spads>and can you telnet to localhost 2020?
10:38<andrewtayloruk_>nope that's weird, it's not there now
10:38<Spads>2020 is a non-privileged port, so any user process can open it. it could have been just a fluke that you nmapped when some process was opening a connection somewhere
10:39<andrewtayloruk_>okay, cool, you learn something new every day
