03:14<lucca>caker / mikegrb: hm, more datapoints on the sleep/select delay problem I had that wasn't fixed by reboot-to-latest-kernel
03:15<lucca>sleep 150 (or anything less) returns instantly
03:15<lucca>sleep 151 waits one second
03:15<lucca>sleep 152 waits two seconds
03:15<lucca>etc, linearly up from there, as far as I've tested
03:15<lucca>hm, no off by one on that
03:16<lucca>it seems to sleep for n-151
03:16<lucca>e.g. vmstat 1 scrolls furiously byt vmstat 152 works like vmstat 1 should.
03:16<lucca>loadavg increases with the number of processes blocked on select(), but cpu load doesn't rise at all.

08:57<wferrel>so sad... :)
08:57<bendy24>but i bet the owner is happy
08:58<bendy24>he cant build servers fast enough
08:58<ximbiot>that would be caker? ;)
08:58<bendy24>indeed
08:58<ximbiot>or the owners of the linodes. :)
09:04<Kurt>clearly, they need to raise their prices

09:08[~]ximbiot throws a burlap bag over Kurts head then begins beeting him with a tire iron.
09:09[~]bendy24 joins in
09:11<ximbiot>i have a crowbar too, if anyone would like to borrow it.
09:11[~]ximbiot kicks Kurt a few times.
09:20<ximbiot>bendy24, doesn't caker pay your husband? why are you helping me beat Kurt?
09:20<wferrel>ximbiot: cuz he suggested caker raise prices...
09:21[~]wferrel Grabs his trusty Louiseville Slugger
09:21<npmr>ha ha bendy24 + mikegrb
09:22<ximbiot>wferrel, yes, that's why I'm beating Kurt, and why, I must admit, it appeared to me that bendy24 was beating him, but unless i'm mistaken, bendy24 is married to mikegrb.
09:22<ximbiot>and i *think* mikegrb gets paid. :)
09:22<npmr>you are mistaken
09:22<npmr>that's why it's funny
09:22<ximbiot>oh.
09:22[~]ximbiot goes to check the logs.
09:23<ximbiot>thought someone told bendy24 to go wake him once. that they were in the same house...
09:23<npmr>it's possible that they've been in the same house
09:23<npmr>but mikegrb is married to heidi
09:23<npmr>and heidi often wakes him for people
09:23<ximbiot>probably i just forgot who was who. it's been awhile.
09:24<ximbiot>sorry bendy24 . :)
09:24<ximbiot>thanks for the help. :)
09:25<npmr>also, if you had a kid that was born during a hurricane, you'd seriously consider using the name of the hurricane as the kid's middle name, right?
09:25<ximbiot>heh. depends how bad the hurricane was. why?
09:26<npmr>hurricane ivan
09:26<npmr>mikegrb's kid
09:27<ximbiot>heh. ivan flooded my basement.
09:27<ximbiot>when i still lived in PA.
09:27<bendy24>uh
09:27[~]bendy24 beats ximbiot
09:27<bendy24>my husband?
09:27<ximbiot>*ow*
09:27<bendy24>sheesh
09:27<npmr>ha ha
09:28<bendy24>mikegrb is my wife
09:28<bendy24>get it right
09:28<ximbiot>sorry. bad memory. somehow got you and heidi confused. probably because i haven't seen heidi speak in awhile.
09:28<ximbiot>ha.
09:31<wferrel>heh
09:31[~]ximbiot covers his head with his arms.
09:32<ximbiot>bendy24, alright, that's enough. we need to get back to beating Kurt.
09:33<Kurt>ximbiot: well, that's how you cure shortages when you can't raise production
09:33<ximbiot>heh. :)
09:34<wferrel>so, how many servers are they up to these days?
09:36<Kurt>wferrel: CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!
09:37<npmr>--- host60.linode.com ping statistics ---
09:37<npmr>1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
09:37<npmr>--- host61.linode.com ping statistics ---
09:37<npmr>1 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
09:37[~]wferrel Grabs the kevlar bag he keeps handy for these situations, drops it over Kurt's head and starts working with the bat again.
09:37<wferrel>npmr: thanks... Just checked that too...
09:38<Kurt>wferrel: maybe I'll get Sean Connery to insult you
09:38<Kurt>wferrel: are you a Trojan cheerleader?
09:39<wferrel><-- is totally lost now.
09:40<ximbiot>what's sean connery have to do with anything?
09:40<ximbiot>and who are the Trojans?
09:41<wferrel>ok, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's confused.
09:43<npmr>just keep beating him
09:43<npmr>it was lame
09:46<Kurt>wferrel: is your name not a reference to Will Ferrel?
09:46<wferrel>no, it would be a reference to my name... :)
09:47<npmr>besides Mr. William Ferrell of Saturday Night Live fame has more "l"s
09:48<wferrel>yup, poor guy doesn't know how to spell his name...

13:22<bendy24>late?
13:22<npmr>a day late and a dollar short
13:24<Narada>heh
13:26<Narada>how's xen going btw; when is it due to go public
13:26<Narada>not been keeping up
13:27<npmr>they say that they're ready to bring it online, but xen isn't
13:28<Narada>strange
13:28<npmr>still some showstopper bugs, i guess
13:28<npmr>as far as caker is concerned
13:29<bendy24>yeah, it wasnt the greatest experiance for me
13:29<bendy24>i had a beta xennode
13:29<JasonF>I'm using xen at work... it works, but it's not perfect
13:30<bendy24>just not quite as mature as UML
13:32<Narada>i see
13:33<Narada>bendy24: what problems did you have (briefly)
13:33<bendy24>at first the host needed to be rebooted quite a bit
13:33<bendy24>my node didnt always startup
13:34<bendy24>and other times it would be "off" for no reason
13:35<Narada>that sounds quite serious
13:35<Narada>not sure i want to migrate in that case
13:35<bendy24>apparently it was just me, so, who knows?
13:35<bendy24>i ended up moving back to a uml node
13:36<Battousai>pansy

15:24<rko>ok my linode is rebooting
15:25<IntuiWorx>Any of you folks running Gentoo and have to go through several boot-shutdown cycles to get it past "VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly."?
15:25<IntuiWorx>Mine started that craziness on Wed., and I'd love to track down the source of the problem ...
15:26<rko>let me guess, you need to fsck your root filesystem
15:26<rko>it doesn
15:26<IntuiWorx>No, that's not the problem ... thought it was the first time I encountered it, so I rebooted into Finnix and ran fsck ... and the fs was clean.
15:26<afv-13>i had that with debian once, fsck end up being clean and problem doesn't go away
15:28<rko>look for any other errors before that line...
15:28<npmr>did you run "fsck" or "fsck -f"?

15:29<IntuiWorx>npmr: ran without -f
15:29<botah>I am trying to learn if a linode VPS will work for me better than my current VPS server is there anybody from LInode who can help w/ this sales question
15:29<npmr>ext2 and ext3 (probably most others) have a flag in the superblock which indicates whether the filesystem was cleanly unmounted
15:29<afv-13>botah: maybe we can help?
15:30<rko>what is your current provider botah_
15:30<npmr>by default, fsck looks at that flag and if it says clean, then fsck says the filesystem is clean
15:30<botah>specifically... will my download speeds be faster than my current vps and will i be able to get more memory cheaply
15:30<botah>current provier == www.vpscenter.com
15:30<botah>curent site == www.agiledge.com
15:30<IntuiWorx>rko: Only errors I see are "unknown partition table" for ubda & ubdb ... but I *think* I get those on a normal boot anyway ... though that seems odd.
15:30<npmr>with -f, fsck will ignore that flag in the superblock and check the filesystem anyway
15:30<botah>I am noticing tha my downloads are slower than i want like 40KB/s
15:30<npmr>this is important when a buggy kernel messes up your data, but sets that flag to true
15:30<IntuiWorx>npmr: ok, I'll try running it that way, thanks ...
15:31<afv-13>vpscenter is kinda expensive
15:31<rko>well, botah, as soon as my site is up I can tell you what my download speeds are... just give me something I can test with
15:31<npmr>IntuiWorx, that "unknown partition table" is normal in UML
15:31<botah>well i got 500mgs of memory bundled in with VPS for 29$
15:31<npmr>IntuiWorx, it's because your block devices are *not* partitioned
15:32<botah>ive been there for 2 years and they gave it to me a long tim ago
15:32<botah>java servers (resin and tomcat) with my stuff running need about 256 min
15:32<botah>but I dont need much bandwith(just fast) nor CPU nor disk...
15:32<botah>So i really only consume memory

15:36<botah>righteo
15:36<botah>so... what are people seeing for download speeds?

15:36<TheFirst>each host is on 100mbit iirc...so that's your burst...
15:39<botah>if I buy type of linode... and I upgrade... can they move my files and stuff onto the new server automatically?

15:42<rko>100%[====================================>] 3,291,283 992.40K/s
15:42<rko>that was a file from ftp.gnu.org to my linode
15:43<afv-13>which dc?
15:43<rko>dallas
15:43<afv-13>weird
15:43<rko>theplanet
15:43<afv-13>maybe sourceforge is slow
15:44<rko>try this:
15:44<rko>wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/leim-21.2.tar.gz
15:44<rko>yes, sf is slow
15:44<rko>that was my reference file

15:44<Kurt>use vim, dumbass
15:44<rko>I'm getting anythign between 700k-1.05M
15:44<botah>but doesnt that just show download speeds to your server? Im interested in upload speeds
15:45<rko>yes, just downstream with that test
15:45<afv-13>my connection at home is 64k isdn so that won't be a good indication
15:48<rko>13:48:26 (487.21 KB/s) - `leim-21.2.tar.gz.3' saved [3291283/3291283]
15:48<rko>that was from my linode to my work
15:48<rko>but the bottleneck might also be on this side

15:52<botah>can somebody remind me how to get 'apt-get' to show a list of packages I can install?
15:52<botah>ive run apt-get upgrade

15:52<TheFirst>apt-cache search?
15:52<botah>thats it
15:53<botah>hey is there an easy way to get a LAMP server running?
15:53<TheFirst>or apt-file search
15:53<rko>botah, btw, I believe you can open linode account and then if you're not happy with it you can get refunded
15:53<TheFirst>botah: install and configure it?
15:53<botah>y
15:53<rko>within some time period of course
15:53<TheFirst>but question if you really need some of it or can go with less resource heavy options
15:53<botah>i just got started with Ubunto 6.06
15:56<botah>so if i want mysql server and the client libs... for 4.1 is it best to run apt-get mysql-server-4.1 and then run apt-get mysql-client-4.1
15:56<botah>w/ instal option i mean
15:57<TheFirst>yes

17:52<TheFirst>Narada_: actually that's making senese to me...would explain the problems i had the other day...and given the issues they had it kinda makes sense
17:52<npmr>erikh, yes
17:52<Narada_>okay statically configured eth0, went online and now installing dhcpcd dhcp client
17:53<Narada_>should work on next restart of interface
17:53<npmr>why?
17:53<npmr>you don't need it anymore
17:53<Narada_>well i do if i want to use dhcp
17:53<npmr>you're staticly configured!
17:54<Narada_>no no; i didn't configure any files; i did a manual one time series of commands
17:54<Narada_>so it's temporary until the next reboot i think
17:54<npmr>oh
17:54<npmr>in that case, yes
17:54<npmr>why not make it permanent?
17:54<Narada_>i will; if dhcp doesn't work this time
17:55<Narada_>also have to look up the new syntax for /etc/conf.d/net
17:56<Narada_>woohoo ... eth0 coming up fine; now to test ssh in a minute
17:56<Narada_>yep all back to normal
17:57<Narada_>now ... how the heck did dhcp suddenly stop working and the dhcp client go missing ... i will never know
