00:00<gpd>nvm... i have an eval version of Norton Ghost that can mount it - so i can probably create an .iso or something from the mounted image

00:22<gpd>bah... windows xp seems to think 650Mb is max for an iso
00:23<Battousai>but what about dvds?
00:23<Battousai>silly windows
00:23<taupehat>heh
00:23<taupehat>someone should be a hero and port K3B into windows
00:24<taupehat>it'd put roxio out of business, heh
00:29<gpd>I prefer GnomeBaker - but not used K3B much
00:29<gpd>none of them seem to get anything like the /actual/ performance of my CD|DVD Writer
00:32<@mikegrb>I just have Battousai burn mine with a flashlight and magnifying glass
00:32<Battousai>flashlight?
00:32<Battousai>you make me use candles
00:33<Eman>i got nero 6 free with a dvd burner so i just cheap out and use it
00:33<Battousai>do you have any idea how hard it is to focus a radial light source with a magnifying glass?
00:39<encode>no

01:40<taupehat>now I need to see what you did to piss off shallax
01:40<taupehat>probably not much =]
01:41<taupehat>gentoo people are often rather unbalanced - look at lilo/somegeek/freenode-freeloader
01:42<gpd>all those hours of staring at compiles will do that
01:42<taupehat>no! it'll make you a linux GOD

01:43<Eman>lilo makes me lol
01:43<taupehat>heh
01:43<taupehat>we've got several former freenode staffers laying low in our smallish regional ircnet right now
01:44<taupehat>I look forward to the day when a good FOSS network will rise and offer what people need again.

01:45<taupehat>dalnet?
01:45<Eman>dalnet? more like furryland
01:45<taupehat>actually, my personal preference would be that open projects put their irc channels in irc.openprojects.org

09:48<MyTreo>hi, anyone live? quick Q about which distro to choose...
09:49<gpd>go ahead...
09:51<gpd>summary: most ppl use debian, some are switching to ubuntu, some use gentoo, others centos...
09:52<MyTreo>Ok...I want to run a fairly standard LAMP setup with php and mysql 4, apache 2. May want to add a postfix/dovecot mail server later and play with php and myslq v5. i have experience using redhat el3/4 and would prefer that software I need can be easily installed through rpm and apt/yum/similar and not built from source. i don't want a gui, just a fast lightweight server.
09:52<gpd>centos is most like rhel... but not as up to date as you request
09:52<MyTreo>oh, and i don't like the look of rhel2 because it is so out of date.
09:52<gpd>ubuntu dapper drake has all the above
09:53<gpd>and is easier to manager using apt-get
09:53<gpd>debian would need testing to get those versions
09:53<ximbiot>do any of the distros come with qmail as a standard or optional package?
09:53<gpd>there is not distro image for dapper yet - but you can apt-get dist-upgrade from breezy
09:53<MyTreo>ubuntu dapper drake, is that three different distos?
09:53<gpd>no 1
09:54<gpd>dapper drake is the code name for version 6.06 - released y'day
09:54<gpd>ubuntu.com
09:54<MyTreo>ahh, it's a branch of ubunto? i got you
09:54|-|netjackal [~netjackal@c-67-184-151-33.hsd1.il.comcast.net] has joined #linode
09:55<MyTreo>thanks i'll take a look at ubuntu 5.1 first
09:55<gpd>k - if you want extra stuff edit /etc/apt/sources.list
09:55<MyTreo>i presume there are a lot of repos for ubuntu?
09:56<gpd>most of the extra stuff is in 'universe and multiverse'
09:56<gpd>you should be able to uncomment a line in the base file
09:56<MyTreo>sweet, sounds great
09:57<gpd>and do s/breezy/dapper/ if you want the new version
09:57<gpd>then do apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
09:57<gpd>there are plenty of guides - ubuntu is the latest bandwagon ;0
10:00<MyTreo>thanks for your help gpd, nice to see an active IRC channel here at linode
10:02<gpd>np - take it easy
10:11<npmr>caker or mikegrb: make the billing email work

10:15<Dreamrr_3>anyone else having connectivity issues from some large cable providers?
10:15<Dreamrr_3>i'm having reports from the southern indiana/lousiville market that they can't get to our box
10:16<npmr>any particular cable provider?
10:16<npmr>i can check from charter cable in michigan

10:17<@mikegrb>npmr: I have that email thingie on my todo list
10:18<npmr>it's annoying
10:18<MyTreo>im confused by the disk images now - I installed ubuntu on and created a swap then I realised I wanted to delete both those and start again, but deleting the images doesn't appear to do anything
10:20<npmr>you may have to either delete any boot profiles that use the disk images first, or remove the disk images from them
10:20<@caker>MyTreo: it should insert a job into your host's queue, and they'll dissappear from the LPM once thehost has deleted them
10:21<MyTreo>"Delete failed. Perhaps this volume is in use?"
10:23<MyTreo>keeps failing
10:23<ximbiot>MyTreo: shut down the host first?
10:23|-|linbot [~supybot@ns.theshore.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:24<MyTreo>that would be an idea but I deleted my configuration profile so can't send commands to the host
10:24<MyTreo>silly me I know, can I get in another way to shut it down?
10:24<npmr>lish?
10:25<ximbiot>hrm. can you log in?
10:25<ximbiot>then `shutdown -h now' as root.
10:29<MyTreo>thanks ximbiot and npmr, i got in through ssh

10:33[~]Ciaran wonders what mikegrb's automatic responses do when you have "cake" and "lol" in the same line.
10:33<@mikegrb>lolz
10:33<Ciaran>cake lol
10:33<Ciaran>Just the "lolz".
10:34<ximbiot>heh.

10:38[~]Ciaran proposes a new name for a cake: "Lolroffle Cake".
10:38<anderiv>jerk
10:38<anderiv>:-)
10:38<Ciaran>Oh, my.
10:38<Ciaran>I just thought of something.
10:39<Ciaran>People are always going on about "roflcopter".
10:39<@mikegrb>mmm cake
10:39<Ciaran>So... what we should do is have a "roflcaker". Now we've got cake AND Linode in the same word.
10:39<Ciaran>"Lolrofflecaker".
10:39<Ciaran>I like that.

10:48<ximbiot>brighton. good skiing there. for michigan.
10:49<ximbiot>heh. southern michigan, anyway. :)
10:51<lol>no it isn't
10:51<lol>are you hopped up on weed?
10:51<ximbiot>heh. i did specify southern mi. you have, what, holly and pine knob to compare it to. neither is much better.
10:52<lol>alpine valley is better than mt. b
10:53<lol>although, after skiing on that dung pile for years and years, you can ski on anything
10:53<lol>for example, frozen waterfalls
10:53<ximbiot>ok, maybe. haven't skied there much, if at all. been years since i've been to any of those anyhow.
10:53<ximbiot>heh. yes, that is true.
10:53<lol>it's fun to head out to colorado on spring break
10:53<lol>the only people left on the mountain are the local season pass holders
10:53<ximbiot>where do you go in CO?
10:54<lol>and they have no freaking clue how to ski on crappy late season snow
10:54<lol>keystone, breckenridge, arapahoe, copper mountain, loveland, steamboat, snowmass, and vail
10:54<ximbiot>'cept for the few who started in the east (or midwest). there are usually a few transplants. :)
10:54<ximbiot>wow, you got around for s spring break trip.
10:55<lol>and i've also been to brighton, ut, park city, jackson hole, and big sky
10:55<gpd>i just came back from Mammoth, CA - where they plan to be open 'til 4th Jul...
10:55<lol>well, this was like four consecutive spring breaks and one winter break

10:56<kriby>alpine valley: http://blog.omnux.com/index.php/2006/03/02/alpine-valley-skiing/
10:56<lol>and going to a different place every day for a week
10:56<kriby>cascade mountain: http://blog.omnux.com/index.php/2006/03/10/destination-cascade-mountain-ski-resort/
10:56<ximbiot>i lived in Boulder for awhile, so i held season passes for Arapahoe and Winter PArk in different years, spent some time at breck, vail, & keystone too. went to steamboat and copper each once. steamboat was actually my favorite, but it was too far to get to much.
10:57<lol>kriby, wrong alpine
10:57<kriby>right alpine.. just not the one you were thinking of. :)
10:57<lol>i went to cascade once, i wasn't impressed
10:57<kriby>my fav is breck.. but i haven't made it much out of summit county (except for Eldora, which doesn't really count)
10:58<kriby>i've been wanting to try utah, or telluride.. maybe aspen..
10:58<lol>aspen's too expensive
10:58<lol>ever been to arapahoe?
10:58<kriby>nope.. haven't do abasin
10:58<lol>you could probably go Right Now
10:58<kriby>thought about it.. but just haven't made it there yet
10:58<kriby>or next month..
10:58<lol>indeed
10:59<lol>it's the only place i've ever skiied off a cliff
10:59<lol>that was fun
10:59<kriby>i'm not quite that advanced
10:59<lol>it was only about twenty feet
10:59<ximbiot>liked abasin. lots of diamonds. some nice chutes. they usually reopen for a fourth of july beach party every year where some people ski in their swim suits.
11:00<kriby>we always go back to breck.. i think i've about convinced people that we need to try some new places, though
11:00<lol>haven't been there in years
11:00<lol>it is true they built a lift all the way up peak 8?
11:00<kriby>the gondola should make things interesting
11:01<kriby>yep.. something like 80 feet from the summit
11:01<lol>man
11:01<lol>i hiked that
11:01<ximbiot>breck, aspen, and vail were all pretty darn expensive by the time i left, and that was like 6 years ago. anyone know what's happened to abasin since vail bought it?
11:01<kriby>if i took the lift i'd be hiking.... down
11:02<lol>did they buy keystone, too?
11:02<kriby>i don't mind the expense for a one-week-a-year thing..
11:02<lol>keystone owned abasin
11:02<kriby>ya, i think vail resorts owns most stuff in summit county now
11:02<lol>:/
11:02<kriby>that's how they can get away with the one-pass-to-rule-them-all thing
11:02<lol>oh, and winter park.... i went there too
11:02<ximbiot>yeah, that sounds about right.
11:03<lol>still owned by the city of denver?
11:03<kriby>breck, abasin, keystone, vail, and wp on the same multiday pass
11:03<kriby>(limited days at vail and, iirc, wp)
11:03<lol>is copper mountain still independent?
11:03<kriby>i'm thinking it is.. but a websearch would verify
11:04<kriby>haven't been to copper but once, and that was 10 years ago or so
11:04<lol>likewise, but more like 15 years
11:05<kriby>i really want to get up to whistler/blackcomb.. a mile of vertical sounds very compelling
11:10<lol>only place i've been in canada was searchmont
11:10<lol>left early that day after my uncle got a concussion
11:10<lol>my other uncle was sick with the flu back at the hotel room
11:10<lol>it was a bad day
11:11<lol>but the canadians fixed up my uncle for free
11:11<lol>hotel room was a three hour drive away, too, back in petosky
11:28<MyTreo>folks, i am liking ubuntu, but i am lost without the "service" command I know from red hat. How do I make services start or see their status in ubuntu?
11:29<MyTreo>I have installed webmin but can't find how to start it, under red hat I would have done "service webmin start"
11:30<ximbiot>look in /etc/init.d. are there lots of files with service names?
11:30<anderiv>MyTreo: did you check if it added an init script? Look in /etc/init.d/
11:30<anderiv>ximbiot: you beat me :-)
11:30<ximbiot>all the RH `service' script does is call /etc/init.d/script, where `script' is the name of the service you typed.
11:31<MyTreo>haha, i see
11:31<ximbiot>okay, that's not true. the RH service script handles the files in /etc/xinetd.d too, come to think of it.
11:32<MyTreo>so i could make a little script that does the same, or just run the service script directly, sweet thank you
11:32[~]MyTreo understands a little more
11:32<ximbiot>which means just toggling the `enable = yes' line to `enable = no' and vice versa, i believe.
11:32<ximbiot>and HUPing xinetd.
11:33<MyTreo>do i even need xinetd?
11:33<ximbiot>MyTreo, depends what you are running.
11:34<ximbiot>anyhow, i had service and chkconfig confused.
11:34<ximbiot>you cuold replace service with the script that calls /etc/init.d/service
11:34<ximbiot>#! /bin/sh
11:35<ximbiot>service = $1
11:35<ximbiot>shift
11:35<ximbiot>/etc/init.d/service ${1+"$@"}
11:36<ximbiot>exit
11:36<ximbiot>actually, don't call exit
11:36<ximbiot>but you get the idea
11:36<MyTreo>thanks, would i just put that in /bin/service ?
11:37<ximbiot>chkconfig diddles the links in /etc/rc?.d and munges the /etc/xinetd.d files as I mentioned.
11:37<ximbiot>MyTreo, /bin/service would be fine.
11:37<ximbiot>and don't forget the $ in $service, like i did.
11:38<MyTreo>i never use chkconfig much so that's no bother :)
11:38<ximbiot>so, one more time with correct syntax:
11:38<MyTreo>i'll try this script now.
11:38<ximbiot> #! /bin/sh
11:38<ximbiot> service=$1
11:38<ximbiot> shift
11:38<ximbiot> exec /etc/init.d/$service ${1+"$@"}
11:38<ximbiot>that should work.
11:39<gpd>what is wrong with `/etc/init.d/foo start|stop|restart`
11:40<MyTreo>gpd: i am just used to the "service" shortcut
11:40<ximbiot>gpd: just less to type. i went that route until i discovered the `service' script. :)
11:40<ximbiot>i can type `service named reload' faster. i think going for all the punctuation slows me up.
11:40<gpd>bah - typing is the least of my worries...
11:40<MyTreo>ximbiot: works great, thank you!

11:46[~]ximbiot wags his finger at the window.
11:47<gpd>talking of services - this is super easy: sysv-rc-conf
11:47<ximbiot>is that ubuntu-speak?
11:49<ximbiot>gpd: ah, Debian. that is like RH's chkconfig, except it also diddles the xinetd.d files.
11:49<ximbiot>(chkconfig handles xinetd.d too)
11:50<gpd>it is a package that does as you say - sets up symlinks for you for each runlevel
11:55<ximbiot>MyTreo, heh. thanks for the tip. i hadn't thought of uninstalling xinetd as a performance tweak, yet, but i didn't actually need it. :)

11:59<@mikegrb>yes
11:59<MyTreo>700 or 650?

11:59<@mikegrb>650
12:00<MyTreo>ximbiot: i use postfix, sendmail is truly horrible
12:00<ximbiot>mikegrb, which ones?
12:00<ximbiot>i don't want to accept SMTP connections - just want scripts to be able to mail me status reports.
12:00<@mikegrb>ximbiot: couldn't name one off hand, I know there are a few out there
12:01<@mikegrb>wifi here is a bit overloaded so can't really help you look, unfortunately
12:01[~]ximbiot starts googling.
12:01<MyTreo>postfix defaults to local outgoing mail only when it installs, it also replaces the sendmail command so no scripts need changing
12:02<ximbiot>MyTreo, does it stay memory resident or only launch to send mail?
12:02<MyTreo>good question :)

12:38<lucca>hm, the clock on the host i've moved to seems to drift noticably... what is the recommended way of keeping time synced within a uml node? ntpd?
12:38<Spads>yeah
12:38<Spads>what distro are you running?
12:38<lucca>debian
12:38<Spads>there should be like an ntp-simple package or something
12:38<lucca>yep
12:39<lucca>thanks
12:40<Spads>coolio
12:40<Spads>note that ntp only syncs within a narrow range
12:40<Spads>so you'll want to fix your clock with ntpdate or something before running ntpd
12:41<Spads>if you install ntpdate, it ought to spot that and run it automatically before firing up the ntpd anyway
12:41<lucca>yeah, already had ntpdate
12:43<afv-13>i feel safer croning ntpdate
12:44<lucca>heh, I have an embedded system where I have to cron ntpdate
12:44<lucca>it loses 6.1 seconds every 30 minutes >_<
12:44<afv-13>that's quite hectic
12:45<lucca>it's also a pretty simple router. I don't really need a userspace running on it.
12:45<Spads>ntpd seems a better fit for that kind of system
12:45<Spads>especially a router
12:45<lucca>ntpd dies within a few minutes on That system
12:46<lucca>the crystal is just too far off
12:48<Spads>ouch
12:50<warewolf>you might need to manually calculate out what the crystal drift is and frob ntp.drift manually
12:50<Spads>yeah
12:50<warewolf>RTFM for what the details are on the two numbers in there
12:50<Spads>man, I remember toying with that shit after building ntpd from sources
12:50<warewolf>I think they're something like uh ...
12:50<Spads>ten years ago, almost exactly
12:50<warewolf>click drift, over what time
12:51<warewolf>actually it appears to be just one number

12:52<warewolf>I don't think I'm running ntp
12:52<warewolf>rather pointless
12:52<warewolf>since you can't change the clock

12:54<Spads>huh
12:54<Spads>you can, just not the hardware clock
12:55<lucca>heh
12:56<lucca>heh, drift was recorded as 0.0 on that router system
12:56<lucca>I'm guessing that means it never got around to calculating anything

15:06<rko>yes, there is a list...

16:02<AutoDMC>Hello! My linode firewall is dumping messages to my terminal, and I can't seem to figure out how to make it stop.
16:02<MyTreo>quick q about the ubuntu distro at linode.com - what is the ssh server that is installed by diffault?
16:03<MyTreo>default*
16:03<AutoDMC>I'm pretty sure it's OpenSSH...
16:03<anderiv>MyTreo: I'd guess OpenSSH.
16:03<MyTreo>thanks
16:03<anderiv>...aside from micro distos, I've never heard of anything else being used.
16:04<AutoDMC>I don't know how to check, I"m sitting next to my Ubuntu linode terminal...
16:04<AutoDMC>...which is getting blasted with Firewall logs...
16:04<kriby>ssh -v linode.machine would work
16:05<kriby>grep for 'remote software version'
16:05<kriby>but i can't imagine anything other than Open
16:05<AutoDMC>OpenSSH4.2pl Debian-7ubuntu3, OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
16:05<kriby>that sounds more like the client string.. a bit farther down it lists the remote version.. (i could be mistaken, though)
16:06<anderiv>the only other sshd I've used is dropbear, which I have running both on my NSLU2 and my WRT54G.
16:07<AutoDMC>"debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_4.2pl Debian-7ubuntu3"
16:07<kriby>that sounds right
16:07<AutoDMC>So... OpenSSH officially :D
16:11<AutoDMC>Any idea about the firewall garbage?
16:11<anderiv>AutoDMC: just to be sure we're clear...I think it's OpenSSH
16:11<anderiv>:-)
16:11<anderiv>AutoDMC: what firewall garbage?
16:12<gpd>AutoDMC: is this iptables stuff?
16:12<gpd>you can use ulog to divert to /var/log/ulog
16:12<AutoDMC>Yah, it's OpenSSH.
16:12<AutoDMC>Yah, it's IPtables stuff... I use FIREHOL to set up the IPTABLES rules.
16:13<AutoDMC>I followed both of the ideas here: http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2082&highlight=firewall+terminal
16:13<AutoDMC>As you can see, I've had this problem before :D But each time those steps worked.
16:14<gpd>you should be able to change the default log parameters of firehol or iptables
16:14<gpd>or you can change /proc/sys/kernel/printk for the whole system
16:16<gpd>heh - looks like my post in that thread... gravies
16:16<gpd>clearly that worked for me --- but i stopped using firehol
16:16<gpd>decided i didn't care, now only use ssh-bruteforce
16:17<AutoDMC>:D
16:18[~]gpd wonders if discard, daytime, time are worth worrying about
16:20<kriby>i worry about time all the.. well... time
16:36<AutoDMC>OK, I figured it out. I feel dumb. Just put "server drop all" at the bottom of the servers rules block in Firehol. Happy clear terminal!

19:03<@linbot>asterick: hello
19:03<asterick>Kinda dead in here, hey?
19:03<@caker>geeks party on Friday
19:04<asterick>I see...
19:04<asterick>Quick question, is there any real practical reason to keep the discard port open?
19:05<@caker>nope
19:06<asterick>Good to know.
19:07<asterick>I'm trying to close as many ports as possible, that one just seemed like a bandwidth sink.
19:12<TheFirst>close them all and open one by one until things work?
19:12<TheFirst>;)
19:13<asterick>Well, I know it wouldn't 'obviously' kill anything... I just didn't want a time bomb problem.
19:13<asterick>down to 4 open ports.
19:14<asterick>I guess that will make it easier to secure my server.
19:23<fo0bar>asterick: somebody DOSing your discard port would actually be 1/2 the bandwidth of somebody DOSing a non-open port, since you would be returning ICMP port closed or something
19:23<fo0bar>asterick: of course, nobody would specifically target discard, so I'm not saying you should leave it open :)
19:24<asterick>fo0bar: I'm more concerned with someone using it as a throw away and eating away at my bandwidth.
19:24<asterick>that and I personally won't use it, so I might as well dispose of it.
19:25<asterick>The odds of it posing a problem to me is slim to zero... but no sense in having something I don't need.
19:26<asterick>Right now, all my server is doing is 3 virtual hosts (apache2) and an exim mailer with spam filtering.
19:26<asterick>unless php magically decides it needs discard, I'll do without.

22:20<warewolf>btw, it is "Perl" not "PERL". Yes I am a stickler.
22:20<@caker>WAREWOLF: OK
22:20<@caker>it's an acronym, hence the uppercase
22:21<warewolf>it is not.
22:21[~]warewolf searches perfaq(insert number here)
22:21<warewolf> What's the difference between "perl" and "Perl"?
22:21<warewolf> One bit. Oh, you weren't talking ASCII? :-) Larry now uses "Perl" to
22:21<warewolf> signify the language proper and "perl" the implementation of it, i.e.
22:21[~]caker doesn't care
22:21<warewolf>But never write "PERL", because perl is not an acronym , apocryphal folklore and post-facto expansions notwithstanding.
