14:05<flint>good afternoon, I use linode for many moons and find I need to make some changes. Can anyone here lend a hand?
14:06<afv-13>what kind of changes?
14:08<flint>afv-13, thanks, I currently am running Hoary on one iso, and have another iso available. I want to put 6.06 on this new iso and swap the two virtuals.
14:08|-|kjcole [] has joined #linode
14:08<flint>Hey kevin!
14:10<afv-13>why not just do a dist-upgrade?
14:10<flint>afv-13, the simple answer is fear.
14:11<kjcole>afv-13, it's not a pure box... especially consideing who's been monkeying with it...
14:11<flint>The more complicated answer is I did some very perverse things with my sources on the 4.10 and want to sort of start with 6.06 (and a decent python) while keepin the first iso available as a mount...
14:13<flint>and I have two images one of which is not online. I am thinking of deteting it and creating from the free space a 6.06. The only question then is how to swap the 4.10 and the 6.06 as the bootable with the bonus question being how subsequently to mount the 4.10.
14:14<afv-13>you'd change your booloader to mount the new image as root
14:14<flint>afv-13, the issue is both of the images have the same name, and I do not know which one is the live image and fear deleating the wrong one...
14:15<afv-13>and then make sure the fstab is in step
14:15<afv-13>device names
14:16<kjcole>afv-13, (there are some files (e.g. web pages) that would be nice to keep, but since the box is an amalgam of ubuntu packages and other weird stuff, the house of cards will probably collapse in a dist-upgrade.)
14:17<flint>afv-13, root on the box is /dev/ubda
14:18<flint>afv-13, that is the live box.
14:18<flint>How can I mount the 3 gigs that are sitting out there unmounted but formated ext3?
14:19<afv-13>create a directory somewhere, probably under mount, then have a look at your fstab and add an entry for the new partition, then mount -a
14:21<flint>afv-13, I just killed one of the 4.10 partitions. I think I got the right one... eh
14:24<flint>afv-13, ok, the new iso is in the process of being made. I want this iso to take the place of the 4.10 iso currently being booted. Any good ideas?
14:26<flint>kjcole, kevin I am gonna stop the 4.10 and start the 6.06 iso.
14:27<afv-13>double check your grub/lilo and fstab
14:29<flint>afv-13 listen I screwed up. can i get that partition back?
14:35<flint>afv-13, is there anyone who is actually at the linnode console at this time?
14:36<AnMaster>caker or mikegrb here?
14:37<flint>AnMaster, thanks, these are the ops people... I am praying for an offline backup right now.
14:38<AnMaster>flint, huh?
14:39<flint>AnMaster, I am new to this channel. My apologies.
14:39<AnMaster>I need them because I got no response to an upgrade request ticket yet
14:39<flint>AnMaster, I desperately need some help from the linode system operators right now.
14:39<AnMaster>one of them I guess
14:39<AnMaster>I'm not one
14:39<AnMaster>I'm a user
14:39<JDM>linode doesn't have offline backups

14:48<flint>JDM, thanks I have sent the support tickets in three times...
14:55<AnMaster>JDM, well "response to an upgrade request ticket yet" <-- support one yes
14:58<flint>Please, anyone. I need some serious help here.

21:19<flint>linbot, the disk image.
21:20<@caker>flint: sorry, your image is gone
21:21<flint>caker, yea. I would like to find out about any spam filtering you all at linode can do Chris.
21:22<IggyTheHairPuller>it's an unmanaged service, they don't do that kind of stuff
21:22<@caker>flint: sorry, none -- we just provide the server currently
21:22<flint>IggyTheHairPuller, I understand, the damn spam filtering is actually the reason to rebuild my mail server... gonna try postgrey.
21:23<IggyTheHairPuller>I personally use a mixture of blacklists and spamassassin with courier
21:23<IggyTheHairPuller>although, I've heard some people have load issues with spamassassin on heavily loaded sites
21:25<IggyTheHairPuller>at work we use amavis+postgres+blacklists
