10:24<warewolf>dear god
10:24<warewolf>love, warewolf.
10:27<tronix>:) in the dc/md/de area, I take it?
10:27<tronix>heard it's really coming down hard there
10:27<warewolf>va/md/dc area actually
10:27<warewolf>no kidding.
10:28<warewolf>nothing wakes my groggy ass up after a long shift like fscking hydroplaning in my car.
10:28<tronix>btw, unrelated... the Rob Levin thing... did he ask for donations for a different purpose then bait-and-switched to his own personal use?
10:29<tronix>but yeah, pretty cheeky of him to want people to just up and buy him a luxury home.
10:29<tronix>I'm not familiar with the whole donation story, but sounded interesting.
10:31<tronix>heh, no biggie. i'll look it up later.
10:35<warewolf>oh sorry, was afk
10:35<warewolf>need to prepare for a new hire
10:36<warewolf>I get to play "mentor" today.
10:36<warewolf>Eg, "Hi, I'm one of your coworkers. Do you have any questions?"
10:36<warewolf>the only reason I get to play "mentor" today is because I just came off shift, and I live litterally next door to corporate HQ.

20:03<Demonicpagan>i'm wondering if someone could help me with something reguarding my linode box, i just got an additional ip, and am needing help on how to activate it
20:06<@caker>Demonicpagan: towards the bottom
20:06<@caker>Demonicpagan: also, you'll need to reboot to have the new IPs routed to your node
20:18<Demonicpagan>i've done so and have since i've got a debian distro, i've followed what was in the wiki and can't seem to connect to it
20:19|-|Helen9 [] has joined #linode
20:21<Helen9>Hi - I'm running Fedora Core 2 on a Linode and just installed a KISS firewall, and it can't find the iptable modules that are supposed to be in the kernel folder (under /lib/modules...). Do the modules exist somewhere else?
20:34<JasonF>no modules
20:34<JasonF>everything is compiled into the kernel
20:35<Demonicpagan>hmm i've rebooted my linode and when i connect to the console, i have this "Enter runlevel:" prompt
20:41<Helen9>ok, great - we have iptables support. So KISS is trying to locate these files : ip_tables.ko, ipt_state.ko, and ipt_multiport.ko. Where can I find these?
20:43<fo0bar>Helen9: they're compiled directly into the kernel. if the software is trying to locate those files specifically as opposed to the *functionality*, then that's broken behavior
20:46<Helen9>ok, thanks!
20:51<Demonicpagan>i'm having problems booting my linode, i get a message that says INIT: No inittab file found, and then it asks for Enter runlevel:
20:52<@caker>Demonicpagan: geez ... debian, right? Here's a fresh inittab:
20:52<Demonicpagan>have no idea how i did that
20:53<@caker>Demonicpagan: set your config profile to boot with "init=/bin/bash", reboot, connect to Lish, remount your fs r/w (mount -o remount,rw /), move that file into place, sync && reboot
20:53<@caker>Demonicpagan: change your config profile back to default runlevel, and reboot the node...
20:54|-|Helen9 [] has quit [Quit: Helen9]
21:02<Demonicpagan>i go to remount the fs i get this error: warning: can't open /etc/fstab: Input/output error
21:02<@caker>your fstab is missing, too?
21:03<Demonicpagan>i guess.. dunno how
21:03<@caker>can someone on a debian Linode paste ubda and ubdb entries?
21:03<@caker>/dev/ubda / ext2 defaults 1 1
21:03<@caker>/dev/ubdb swap swap pri=1 0 0

21:14<chris>mike/caker: I just moved cross country and there aren't any Chase branches out here so I need to get a new account and wait for a new card, told I'll get the new card late next week. Can I delay payment on the current card on the first so I can switch it to this new account?
21:16<Demonicpagan>hmm, i can't place those values in my fstab :-\

22:25<Demonicpagan>now that i've booted into finnix, what do i need to do to repair my distro?
22:26<@caker>Demonicpagan: mount /dev/ubdc someplace, then make repairs thee
22:27<eFUDd>caker, buy me this as thanks for being an almost-3-years-customer:
22:27<eFUDd>promise i'll stay another year as thanks! scouts honor! :)
22:28<Demonicpagan>that's if i have my distro on ubdc, right? i have my distro on ubdb
22:28<@caker>Demonicpagan: correct
22:30<mikegrb>eFUDd: I don't see caker having a problem with it so I had better order it real quick while it's still available
22:30[~]mikegrb runs
22:30<eFUDd>mike, ok, good. There are 2 available. get yourself one also.
22:31<mikegrb>good call

22:32<JasonF>thx for the new ram

22:43<JasonF>yeah. free -m

22:43<eFUDd>I want free -n, count in nibbles.
22:43<eFUDd>also pages. Yes, pages.
22:43<eFUDd>so a -p is needed...
22:44<eFUDd>Then we need a -u where it's user defined arbitrarily.
22:44<eFUDd>That'll help standardize things.
22:44<JasonF>oh, please
22:44<JasonF>free has had a -m for a while
22:44<eFUDd>The first time a customer sends me a "free -m" from a linux box, I'm going to think their shite is broke.
22:45<JasonF> Options
22:45<JasonF> The -b switch displays the amount of memory in bytes; the -k switch (set by default) displays it in kilo-
22:45<JasonF> bytes; the -m switch displays it in megabytes.
22:45<eFUDd>Yes. I read the manpage.
22:45<eFUDd>I do think some systems (solaris perhaps?) actually displays it in 512byte blocks anyway.
22:49<JasonF>I think oBSD is my fave OS atm
22:50<eFUDd>BSD gives me hives.
