03:48<fo0bar>boo. ya.
03:49<fo0bar>finnix running as a dom0
03:50<warewolf>holy batshit robin
03:52<fo0bar>I had to do some major reworking of the startup scripts... before now, finnix always thought the existence of /proc/xen meant domU, IE reduced capabilities
04:01<fo0bar>root@0:~# mount -o remount,size=256M /
04:01<fo0bar>ahh, if only it were that easy normally
04:01<Dreamer3>fo0bar: you having fun on xen?
04:02<fo0bar>Dreamer3: in what context? :)
04:02<Dreamer3>in any context
04:03|-|kokoko [] has joined #linode
04:04<fo0bar>well, I'm currently working on dom0 support for finnix. finnix has had domU support for awhile now, but this has been interesting... I will say, working with xen's source tree for anything non-default isn't the easiest
04:04<fo0bar>but I'm getting there

04:57<Ciaran>Hi all.
05:02<Ciaran>Is it normal on a Debian Linode 80 box to see most of your RAM eaten up with just minimal services running? :/
05:03<Ciaran>I mean, that doesn't even have ssh or any httpd processes. Just wondering.
05:03<warewolf>is that graphic a screencap of the 'top' application?
05:03<Ciaran>Oh, hang on.
05:03<warewolf>also, 403 permission denied.
05:03<Ciaran>Yeah, I noticed. Let me fix the perms. And yes, it is.
05:03<warewolf>you do realise that linux uses all available memory as a filesystem cache, right?
05:03<Ciaran>Okay, fixed.
05:04<Ciaran>And no, I didn't.
05:04<warewolf>here, look at this
05:04<warewolf>look at the memory usage graph
05:04<warewolf>ignore the pink and blue lines at the bottom
05:04<warewolf>the rest, used/buffers/cached/shared/free are how much memory are being used.
05:05<warewolf>subtract cached and free, and that's how much memory APPLICATIONS are using.
05:05<Ciaran>Ah, okay.
05:06<Ciaran>Does that correspond to the "cached" number on the Swap line in top?
05:06<efudd>ewf. apparently i just spent 65 usd on 3 drinks :/a
05:06<Ciaran>Or, actually, I suppose running "free" would be best.
05:06[~]efudd sighs
05:06<warewolf>the Swap line in top is regaring just swap
05:07<warewolf>er wait
05:07<warewolf>in my graph, cached == the cached line in the swap line in your top
05:07<efudd>alcohol in singapore is rediculously expensive
05:08<efudd>props to the us
05:08<Ciaran>So, in that screenshot, that would mean the amount of memory apps are using would be (45488k - 9048k) = 36440k?
05:08<efudd>way too much thinking dude. drink more
05:08<Ciaran>Or (66340k - 45488k) = 20852k?
05:08<Ciaran>efudd: Sorry, I don't drink.
05:09<efudd>really. jack daniels.
05:09<warewolf>Ciaran: you're missing out on a lot.
05:09<warewolf>Ciaran: nothing says you can't have a single drink once in a while. Some liquors are quite tasty.
05:09<efudd>oh! that sucks. one can undetstand linux kernel internals much better wasted
05:09<Ciaran>*shrugs* I just don't drink. It's a choice.
05:09<efudd>mmmm jack daniels
05:10<efudd>(but not at $20usd/double)
05:10<efudd>by bar tab on a bad night in the us barely reaches 60
05:10<Ciaran>warewolf: So, are either of my calculations correct? Or is it something different? (using the screenshot at , whose permissions I fixed earlier)
05:10<efudd>(including food)
05:11<efudd>fuck the blackberry tiny keyboartd
05:11<efudd>and fucjk the fact i am still in singapore
05:11<Ciaran>efudd: :(
05:12<efudd>i miss my wife. how sad.
05:12<warewolf>efudd: stop ircing from your blackberry, and go to bed before you embarass yourself.
05:12<warewolf>whoops, already done.
05:12<Ciaran>You know, one thing I don't get is when people use the word 'fuck' to mean something bad, whereas in any other context it would be a good thing according to them.
05:13<efudd>bed? emberass? first, it isn't even 6pm. second, i could not be embarressed to/by irc folk
05:13<efudd>but thanks.
05:13<efudd>ciaran, the problem is i am not fucking my wife at the moment
05:14<efudd>i have been sitting in this hotel bar the last 3 hours revese engineering the logic ina texas holdem game
05:14<Ciaran>warewolf: Did you catch my question? Or did I miss your answer?
05:15<efudd>linux memory management is so 1999
05:15<warewolf>Ciaran: sorry, I'm actually multitasking and quite a bit preoccupied
05:15<Ciaran>warewolf: No worries.
05:16<warewolf>take your memory, and subtract free, cached, and buffers and that == total used
05:16<efudd>i am mutitasking my gawking at asian women, drinking jack, and ignoring the question on the table whilst waiting on my client to understand their shite is fixed. :/
05:17<efudd>ww, want a job at ntap?
05:17<warewolf>efudd: doing what exactly?
05:17<efudd>oh, want to relocatie to rtp also?)
05:17<efudd>tech support probably.
05:17[~]warewolf shudders
05:17<warewolf>phone support?
05:18<efudd>depending on your history, you would have to start as a tse (phones) more than likely. the eal world sucks that way.
05:18<efudd>i somehow managed to avoid that bit
05:19<efudd>i am somewhere between an escalations enginneer and a critical problems dude
05:19<efudd>(on a crit prob case in sing now, just do not have the years in at ntap yet to qualify for promotion)
05:20<warewolf>efudd- seeing as how I have very little netapp experience I don't think I'm qualified.
05:22<efudd>ok then.
05:22<efudd>(i had ut exp instorage industry for 7 years)none
05:23<efudd>holy crap that was typo hell
05:23<warewolf>put the crackberry down.
05:23<efudd>ya. back to holdem

15:46<@mikegrb>so the gallery package is broken
15:46<npmr>yeah, basically
15:47<afv-13>works nicely under lighttpd though

16:55<Spads>makefiles and shell scripts and javascript
16:56<Spads>it's an image gallery, not a budgeting system
16:56<Spads>it shouldn't need a "database"
16:56<Spads>it's just collections of files

22:52<@caker>Soon thereafter, the "Underwood devil" was born. In 1870, the Underwood Company was granted a patent on this now world-famous logo. Advertising showing the little red devil began to appear nationally as early as 1895. Today, the Underwood devil is the oldest existing trademark still in use in the United States (reference 12).
