00:03<TheFirst>Eman: if you're using one of the hackable routers dd-wrt and such allow you to limit speed by port
00:06<Eman>how about by mac address? cause the machine and the router have a switch inbetween
00:12<TheFirst>not sure...not running dd-wrt but lemme check my firmware...
00:16<TheFirst>hmmm completely off the wall question...anyone know how to see who have locks on files on an nfs share?
00:24<Antitribu>but never done it myself
00:24<TheFirst>yah that doesn't work
00:25<TheFirst>reading a thread off google...seems the kernel nfs is jsut not very good answer
00:26<Antitribu>you trying to figure it out from the server or the client?
00:31<Antitribu>disconnect it and see who complains?
00:32<Antitribu>sorry, i've no idea

02:28<Antitribu>how long linodes take to be set up these days
02:29<Antitribu>is it serveral "business" hours?
02:29<Antitribu>or are they on full auto?
02:43<neurosis>i want to thank all the homies here who helped me out the past few nights in the wee hours
02:43<neurosis>i finally got my server running correctly all the services i need
02:44<neurosis>i love linode... and accept linode as my lord and saviour.. so that I may have eternal linode-ness and be spared from the agony of /dev/nul

03:21<neurosis>Duplicate an existing Disk Image
03:21<neurosis>To make a valid copy of a disk image, your Linode should not have it mounted.
03:21<neurosis>does that mean
03:21<neurosis>the disk to be copied
03:21<neurosis>shouldnt be mounter?
03:21<neurosis>shouldnt be mounted?
03:21<neurosis>or that i shouldnt mount the copy after its made?
03:21<neurosis>thats a dumb question
03:21<neurosis>i will shutdown before i dupe my sys drive

09:07<warewolf>just grah.
09:07<warewolf>how come all the latest and greatest video cards are going to require me to find a pci express mobo

10:16<tronix>morning. what's up with host28?
10:16<tronix>it's pingable but no response to ssh to lish
10:16<tronix>or to the Linode
10:16<Spads>tronix: good question
10:16<tronix>before that, it looked like it took a large hit on disk i/o maybe... but
10:17<tronix>since can't get into console, can't check io_status :)
10:17<Spads>caker: mikegrb: is someone on 28 thrashing? I hope it's not me.
10:17<Spads>tronix: have you filed a ticket yet?
10:17<tronix>not yet. wanted to see if someone was around
10:18<tronix>if not, will.
10:18<Spads>I'll do it
10:18<tronix>(and thanks, btw)
10:19<iggy>when you file tickets, they both get pages ;)
10:20<@mikegrb>on it
10:20<tronix>sweet, thanks
10:20<Spads>ah okay
10:20<iggy>I wanted mikegrb to get paged.... just because I know he was probably still asleep
10:20<Spads>iggy: he will get paged, but now he's awake, so it'll only break his concentration while solving our troubles

11:12<inventure>morning. are we having network issues? i can't reach my linode.
11:12<Spads>inventure: host28 is down
11:12<Spads>has been for about an hour
11:12<inventure>ah, that would explain things.
11:13<inventure>hardware issue?
11:13<Spads>no idea
11:13<Spads>08:42 <@mikegrb> gonna be a few more minutes, it booted into the wrong kernel
11:13<Spads>^-- the last thing said on the topic

11:49<jlinos>hi, i have a linode on host28, and it is down, and after a boot it says success but no ssh or ping, can anybody help me ?
11:49<Spads>jlinos: I had the same problem, and mikegrb said this:
11:49<jlinos>after 1 minute or so at status it says: Powered off
11:49<Spads>09:40 <@mikegrb> try latest 2.6 instead of the actual latest
11:49<Spads>worked for me
11:50<jlinos>indeed i have a 2.4 kernel
11:50<jlinos>do i have to change this ?
11:50<Spads>no idea

11:58<@mikegrb>/dev/ubda: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. (i.e., without -a or -p options)
11:58<@mikegrb>you need to fsck
11:58<@mikegrb>you can resize by 1 MB from the website to have the host fsck it for you

12:05<jlinos2>aha, i got it
12:06<jlinos2>so instead of 5888 MB i enter 5887 MB and the i boot

13:30<afv-13>does SQLite use less ram than mysql or is it just the size of the package itself?
13:34<anderiv>afv-13: I'm pretty sure it's less RAM-intensive.
13:34|-|Marcel [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
13:34<afv-13>even over an optimised mysql as per forums/wiki reccomendations?
13:34<anderiv>though I've never tried it, many say that lighttpd+sqlite is a pretty good combination for RAM-sensitive situations.
13:35<afv-13>cool, that's quite a 'lamp' lighttpd+sqlite+php-cgi

14:12<afv-13>any opinions on the 'tiny' kernel patchset?

20:09<cmantito>No, I wanted them turned on next week.
20:09<@caker>yeah, good thing I shipped them overnight to be installed and remain turned off
20:10<cmantito>I had to call MS to order a server license once, we paid by credit card cause a PO would take too long, and then they thanked us and hung up.
20:10<cmantito>We called back and the lady goes "You wanted the license now?"
