00:24<gpd>caker: nice work on the kernel... anybody tested it yet?
00:24<@caker>gpd: not that I know of
00:24<gpd>ok - i'll have a shewanga at it

00:27<@caker>move /lib/tls back into place?
00:29<geepeedee>seemingly it is there without me doing anything?
00:29<@caker>?
00:30<geepeedee>i think libc6 was updated in ubuntu recently
00:30<geepeedee>but my linode didn't have any ill effects ???

00:33<gpd>Linux www.grahamdavies.net 2.6.16.1-linode18-bb1 #1 Thu Mar 30 23:52:33 EST 2006 i686 GNU/Linu
00:34<gpd>what programs require TLS?
00:36<@caker>ldd for one
00:37<gpd>gpd@www:/lib$ ls -dl tls
00:37<gpd>drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 Mar 25 09:14 tls
00:38<gpd>gpd@www:/lib$ ldd /usr/bin/mysql linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000) libreadline.so.4 => /lib/libreadline.so.4 (0x4001e000)
00:38<gpd>etc
00:38<@caker>my sshd (on debian-unstable) uses /lib/tls stuff
00:39<@caker>so does top, it looks like
00:39<gpd>seems to work then - nicely done - although why the dir was there before and I had no problems is anyone's guess
00:40<@caker>on a 2.6-um kernel?
00:40<gpd>yeah - does it require a reboot to come into effect?
00:40<@caker>dunno
00:40<gpd>as i remember a libc6 update
00:40<@caker>I wouldn't think so, but you never know
00:42<@caker>gpd: maybe run ldconfig
00:42[~]caker shrugs
00:43<gpd>does apt produce logs like aptitude?
00:43<gpd>ldconfig done
00:43<gpd>still fine
00:43<@caker>gpd: /var/log/dpkg.log
00:44<gpd>2006-03-25 09:15:29 status installed libc6-dev 2.3.5-1ubuntu12.5.10.1
00:44<gpd>my linode has obviously run since then without problem despite /lib/tls
00:45<@caker>on a 2.6 kernel?
00:45<gpd>yup
00:45<gpd>with mucho ssh and mysql
00:45<gpd>maybe ubuntu know something debian doesn't
00:45<gpd>if(uml){don't load /lib/tls;} ?
00:46<@caker>doubtful
00:46<@caker>reboot back and see
00:46<gpd>k

00:50<sydguy>I didn't really know who to ask but some tech gurus tend to hang out on the channel, so apologies that this isn't linux related, but here goes: I have a dell inspiron 710m laptop, and a 160GB Seagate IDE HDD in a USB2/1394 enclosure. The enclosure works fine on my Win2K desktop, but the drive partitions aren't recognised by my WinXP laptop using USB2 or firewire. I suspect the laptop isn't doing LBA properly (required for disks >128GB) but it should be
00:51[~]caker wonders if sydguy's comment got cut off ... "(required for disks >128GB) but it should be"
00:52<gpd_>gpd@www:~$ uname -a
00:52<gpd_>Linux www.grahamdavies.net 2.6.15-linode16 #1 Wed Jan 4 17:30:25 EST 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
00:52<sydguy>thanks ...but it should be enabled by default on WinXP SP2 (which I have installed). Any ideas?
00:52<gpd_>gpd@www:~$ ldd /usr/bin/mysql linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000) libreadline.so.4 => /lib/libreadline.so.4 (0x4001e000)
00:52<gpd_>sydguy: if it works on 2K it should work on XP... no clue
00:52<@caker>gpd_: dmesg | grep -i TLS, please
00:53<gpd_>caker: nada
00:53<@caker>gpd_: weird
00:53<sydguy>thanks gpd_ yeah I'm clueless too
00:53<gpd_>sydguy: are the partitions actually Volumes?
00:54<gpd_>caker: any other tests?
00:54<@caker>gpd_: one sec
00:55<sydguy>um the partitions, I think so.. WinXP sees the drive as a "foreign disk" but won't let me import it.
00:55<sydguy>yet my win2k machine sees the whole thing fine
00:55<sydguy>so I'm suspecting the whole >128GB thing
00:56<gpd_>hmm... foreign disk sounds like windowsism rather than bios issue
00:56<sydguy>it's tricky!
00:56<sydguy>esp a USB drive, shouldn't be hampered by BIOS
00:56<sydguy>same response with firewire too (it's a combo enclosure)
00:56<sydguy>been googling all afternoon on it
00:56<gpd_>look at the partition table in administraition tools
00:57<sydguy>well that's what I've tried
00:57<sydguy>but WinXP says "foreign disk" and won't show the partition table.. :p
00:57<gpd_>can't you 'import foreign disk' or something equally weird
00:57<sydguy>you should be able to
00:58<sydguy>but won't give me that option
00:58<gpd_>i remember doing something like that with a Volume based partition
00:58<sydguy>hence the suspicion it isn't reading the entire partition table properly
00:58<sydguy>and the sub suspicion that LBA addressing isn't being honoured
00:58<sydguy>:-S
00:58<gpd_>is the data nowhere else... ?
00:58<sydguy>gpd, I tried going to grahamdavies.net and no web site there..
00:58<gpd_>tried a linux live disk?
00:59<gpd_>caker - verily - you are correct... must be reboot issue
00:59<sydguy>um it's all good gpd the usb disk works fine on my win2k machine, if I have to I'll just ethernet the data across
00:59<gpd_>i'll go back to 2.6.16 then :)
01:00<@caker>gpd_: things stopped working?
01:00<gpd_>well mysql ain't working - hence the lack of site
01:00<@caker>cool
01:00<@caker>:)
01:02<gpd_>caker: ssh now frozen :) rebooting promptly
01:02<@caker>heh
01:03<gpd_>does the rest of the country have a day off tomorrow? or just .ca?
01:04<sydguy>what is the title of the holiday?
01:04<gpd_>Cesar Chavez (very CA!)
01:06<gpd_>caker: gpd@www:~$ dmesg | grep -i TLS
01:06<gpd_>Host TLS support detected
01:06<@caker>yup
01:07<gpd_>everything is as expected
01:08<gpd_>sydguy: http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-532488.php
01:08<gpd_>WinXP Home does not support dynamic NTFS partitions!
01:09<@caker>wow
01:11|-|gpd [~gpd@70.85.16.173] has joined #linode
01:14<gpd_>sydguy: seemingly Knoppix can read dynamic ntfs - but if you can dual boot 2K you will be able to get the data off anyway... i just hope you have somewher to put it
01:14<gpd>!insult gpd_
01:14<@linbot>gpd_ - You are nothing but a reeky assload of weasel-smelling snake.

05:12<@mikegrb>gpd: not so much the reboot as restart of tls affected software that was needed, so since sshd wasn't restarted after the libc upgrade it didn't have problems as it was using the old version and no tls, same for other stuff

10:39<efudd>but is good.
10:40<cmantito>only *real* problem I have is when i leave one screen and a modifier gets "stuck" down.
10:40<gpd>is x2vnc bad? or is this just better?
10:40<cmantito>I think this is just better. x2vnc should work.

11:25<gpd>trying reboot from lish
11:25<gpd>going down...
11:26<gpd>nope... still busted
11:26<@mikegrb>the success reffers to the boot job being successfully run, not necessarily that the linode successfully booted
11:27<gpd>reboot from lish also didn't work
11:27<@caker>gpd: issue another boot, please
11:27<gpd>from lish or lpm?
11:27<@caker>doesn't matter

11:29<@caker>huh .. statusd is killing your node
11:29<gpd>it is running but behaving like tls is causing problems
11:29<gpd>shall i revert to 2.6.15?
11:29<gpd>or do you wish to test stuff?
11:29<@caker>it's not a kernel problem
11:30<gpd>it was fine last night on reboot into new 2.6.16... ?
11:31<gpd>trying 2.6.15
11:32<gpd>seems fine now after mv /lib/tls
11:32<@caker>it's not a kernel problem <-- :)
11:33<gpd>no - seems fine after boot into 2.6.15!
11:33<@caker>move it back into place, please
11:33<@caker>I'm fixing stuff
11:33<gpd>oh
11:33<@caker>can we reboot back into 2.6.16?
11:33<gpd>yeah - one sec
11:34<gpd>what were you fixing?
11:34<@caker>debugging. more like it
11:35<@caker>ok .. statusd and dispatch were racing
11:35<gpd>ok up with 16... moving tls back
11:36<gpd>restarting mysql - ok
11:36<@caker>ok -- let's make sure it isn't the UML crashing (pretty sure it wasn't, cause status was killing off your UML)
11:36<@caker>we should reboot once with that new kernel and /tls in place
11:36<gpd>k - going down again
11:36<@mikegrb>\
11:37<gpd>err... just rebooted... logged in... and spontaneous reboot?
11:38<gpd>maybe queued from lpm?

12:34<@caker>I managed to move the correct libs onto the drive, just not in the correct place
12:34<@caker>looks like I'll need to boot into an initrd with some tools to fix this :(
12:34<@caker>anyhow, I'm going to leave it like it is for now (nodes are still running)

13:01[~]caker walsk away from host27 before stabbing himself
13:02<snorp>so
13:02<snorp>is there anything happening on upgrading the FC distros available? :)
13:03<gpd>snorp: why do you use FC on a linode? VNC?
13:03<@mikegrb>they are the versions they were due to limitations of FC
13:03<snorp>gpd: I hate debian
13:03<snorp>gpd: (hate is a little strong)
13:03<@mikegrb>gpd: he doesn't like it when computers just work
13:03[~]mikegrb runs away
13:03<snorp>heh
13:04<gpd>is ubuntu any better than debian in your opinion?
13:04<snorp>mikegrb: I thought it was just the lack of nptl that was causing problems
13:04<snorp>ubuntu does seem better
13:04<snorp>gpd: I work for novell
13:04<@mikegrb>snorp: but that doesn't require the other distros to be ancient
13:04<snorp>gpd: so I have a pre-disposition to rpm distros
13:04<snorp>(and, also, distros that suck)
13:05<snorp>mikegrb: nod
13:05<gpd>badger caker to make opensuse image?
13:05<snorp>hah
13:05<tierra>hehe
13:05<snorp>ok, I still want my linode to work :)
13:05<gpd>you really do work for Novell! :)
13:05<@mikegrb>the specific issue wrt to nptl is FC has stuff staticly linked to libaries using nptl
13:05<snorp>haha
13:06<@mikegrb>so there is no way around it
13:06<snorp>yeah, but that should be ok on xen though, right?
13:06<@mikegrb>yes
13:06<snorp>cool
13:06<@mikegrb>and the newest uml kernel available has nptl support as well
13:06<gpd>or with the new 2.6.16 kernel no?
13:06<snorp>yeah, noticed that
13:06<@mikegrb>believe it was made available within the last day or two
13:07<tierra>I do believe his original question still stands then... "is there anything happening on upgrading the FC distros available?"
13:07<gpd>true - but it is possible to update with yum and crossed fingers
13:08<gpd>maybe a little light animal sacrifice
13:10<@mikegrb>tierra: it will happen eventually, that was an explanation for why it hasn't happened yet
13:10<tierra>k, cuz I was kinda curious too
13:10<@mikegrb>that and it looks like only 7% of users have a FC2 deployment
13:11<snorp>really?
13:11<snorp>what are most people using?
13:11<snorp>don't say debian
13:11<@mikegrb>49% debian
13:11<snorp>:)
13:11<tierra>hehe
13:11<gpd>how many ubuntu now?
13:11<@mikegrb>2%
13:11<tierra>too many
13:11<snorp>I can't believe people use gentoo
13:12<snorp>on a linode
13:12<npmr>isn't there a pie graph on the website somewhere?
13:12<@mikegrb>not publicly available
13:12<snorp>like, isn't that the most painful thing you can imagine?
13:12<gpd>snorp: you are clearly itching for a distrofight
13:12<Spads>snorp: I hear they don't upgrade libc ever
13:12<snorp>gpd: :)
13:12<snorp>Spads: heh
13:13<snorp>mikegrb: how many centos
13:13<Spads>I dunno, I hear there's a way you can grab all binary packages
13:13<@mikegrb>1%
13:13<snorp>I would be using centos if 4.x was out when I got my linode
13:13<Spads>so maybe that's how they do it
13:13<Spads>okay, I should go get lunches
13:13<Spads>phew
13:16<tierra>no reason you couldn't run Gentoo on your Linode if your building packages on a remote box with the same profile
13:35<JasonF>i run it and compile stuff locally
13:35<JasonF>you just have to be veryyy savvy
13:39<Spads>which rules out most gentoo users
13:39<tierra>and put up with an hour or two of downtime per week while you build packages (as none of your running services are going to be very useful while compiling, and if you keep them running, it's only going to slow down your build time)
13:39<Spads>tierra: no, he said compile stuff locally
13:40<gpd>I am confused... a few days ago it was stated that there was no BSD for Xen... ???
13:40<tierra>I just assumed "you just have to be veryyy savvy" implied that he really meant he builds on his Linode
13:41<tierra>as it's sort of a contradictory statement to what I said
13:41<gpd>yet the Xen 2.x Demo CD includes BSD guests
13:41<tierra>maybe no BSD for Xen on Linode currently
13:43<gpd>21:33 <@caker> BSD Xenodes are only a possiblity when there are tools for Linux to manage BSD filesystems
13:46<@mikegrb>yes
13:46<@mikegrb>can't mount a bsd fs from inside linux
13:47<gpd>so this breaks the lpm or other linode magick?
13:49<@mikegrb>well it makes it impossible to set the root password in the image
13:49<@mikegrb>that's the main thing
13:51<gpd>what about separate LPM running on BSD host?
13:52<gpd>too much pain for too little gain - not enough demand for BSD?

13:52<@mikegrb>perhaps
13:53<tierra>that sounds like a fun forum topic
13:53<tierra>I was fairly surprised the first time I found out GoDaddy did VPSs...
13:53<@mikegrb>the guy that left us for godaddy and then came back to us after godaddy deleted his fses should reply
13:54<gpd>might be him... he talks about leaving and then coming back ^^
13:54<@mikegrb>oh
13:54<gpd>The nightmare story: one Sunday afternoon my GoDaddy VPS just vanished. BOFF! Gone. About 12h later and numerous tickets I was told there was a security breach.
13:54<tierra>I would of thought GoDaddy needed to first fix up their shared hosting system to something a little more usable before offering VPSs
13:55<gpd>they recently decided to drop Linux and go with MS... cretins
