09:37|-|Netsplit over, joins: Eman
09:45<tizn>mike you here?
09:48<kvandivo>how can he possibly answer that any way other than "yes"?
09:50<tizn>odd, that would be the answer I'm looking for.
09:50<tizn>He also answered a ticket
09:50<tizn>so i thought he may be on irc

10:21<Spads>lft > traceroute
10:21<Spads>it does ASNs!
10:21<Spads>sudo lft -N -S -A
10:29<npmr>[inkblot@dorothy:~]$ lft -N -S -A
10:29<npmr>no suitable device found
10:29<npmr>that's lame
10:30<bendy24>got root?
10:34<npmr>yes, but it's still lame
10:34<npmr>mtr and traceroute don't need root privs to pick an output device or capture responses
10:34<bendy24>poor npmr
10:35<npmr>i stand corrected
10:35<npmr>mtr and traceroute are 1755
10:36<Spads>most of those tools are suid
10:36<Spads>for teh packet formations
10:37<npmr> <-- this is how a linode bleeds to death
10:38<bendy24>no one has fixed it yet?

14:00<@caker>what's up?
14:01<kvandivo>they've been talking smack
14:07<bendy24>who has?
14:08<tizn>caker: i tried fsck'ing
14:08<tizn>but still no inittab
14:08<tizn>Would you like to try?
14:18|-|Dreameer3 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
14:19|-|Dreamer3 [] has joined #linode
14:21<@caker>tizn: it won't recover the inittab, but it'll clear up the fs enough for you to replace it
14:21<@caker>tizn: debian?

14:52|-|Spads [] has joined #linode
15:10<tizn>would you suggest this as a good time to clean house?
15:10<tizn>install a new OS and all?
15:12<tizn>i just don't like the idea of some key files disapearing

15:20<@linbot>javafueled: *click*
15:40<warewolf>caker- I believe the last user that had issues with inittab I was able to help them fsck via resize.
15:40<warewolf>caker- if they didn't fsck, even with the root partition mounted rw, there were io errors accessing /etc/inittab.
15:43|-|javafueled [] has quit [Quit: javafueled]
15:47<tizn>it just doesn't exist anymore
15:47<tizn>as do a number of files
15:48|-|jekil [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:56<warewolf>check /lost+found?
15:57<@caker>warewolf: right, which is why I suggested the fsck first
15:57<@caker>tizn: based on when this has happened before, it's always been limited to inttab and occasionally fstab
15:57<@caker>tizn: what kernel were you running before this happened?
15:58<tizn>2.4. something
15:58<@caker>tizn: latest 2.4?
15:58<@caker>(in the config profile)
15:58<tizn>i don't think i had rebooted since well.. the last time host42 rebooted
15:58<@caker>still haven't pinned down what causes that
15:59<tizn>it is very odd
15:59<tizn>its something that happened before though?
15:59<@caker>Yes, last few weeks I've been seeing it at random
15:59<tizn>ok, at least i know it wasn't an intruder or something
15:59<tizn>but i hadn't logged onto the server in at least 2 weeks
16:00<tizn>i was out 70 miles offshore...
16:00<tizn>so very unable to break it...
16:00<tizn>which was odd when i came back home and it was all borked
16:01<tizn>can't find anything in lost+found
16:03<@caker> <-- /me drools
16:04|-|linville [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
16:17<npmr>caker, does it say anywhere what kind of data connection it's got?
16:18<npmr>ah, found it
16:26<warewolf>-bash-2.05b# cp inittab inittab.old
16:26<warewolf>-bash-2.05b# cp fstab fstab.old
16:26[~]warewolf takes precautions
16:26<TheFirst>warewolf: against?
16:27<warewolf>TheFirst: read scrollback.
16:27<TheFirst>just did...
16:27<TheFirst>isn't that fstab problem fun? :P
16:28<@caker>npmr: ya .. for TP it's dual 100MBit async
16:28<@caker>er, full duplex
16:28<npmr>i meant radio
16:29<npmr>it's EDGE
16:29<@caker>oh, the ROAD thing
16:29<npmr>also, WiFi
16:30<npmr>so how would that work, you walk into a cingular store and say "i want to connect this thing to the innerweb. it's got edge."?
16:30<@caker>I would assume
16:30<@caker>that's how it works with non-$provider branded/provided phones
16:42<warewolf>you will have to pay big $$ to get a non-$provider device connected to $provider's network, atleast in america.
