02:29<Ecksley>Newb here. Is it better to use 'aptitude install' or 'apt-get install'
02:29<Ecksley>Is there a difference?
02:29-!-Knight [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:30<SnoFox>Ecksley: One uses aptitude, the other uses apt.
02:30<SnoFox>(Not really. They both end up using dpkg, iirc.)
02:32<rnowak>choose one and stick to it;
02:33<Ecksley>SnoFox: Thanks. So I am ignorant. So is like the difference between Fedex and Ups. Same result. Different service?
02:33<SnoFox>I guess.
02:34<SnoFox>dpkg is Debian's package manger.
02:34<SnoFox>Apt and aptitude are front-ends.
02:36<Ecksley>SnoFox: Okay. I just saw the Linode documentation used apt -get, but this guy uses 'aptitude':
02:36<Ecksley>So I thought I'd see if it mattered which I used.
02:36<StevenK>Not really.
02:37<SnoFox>As far as I know, it doesn't.
02:37<Ecksley>You rock. Thanks!
02:37<StevenK>It's mostly a matter of personal preference. The only real difference I know of is dependancy resolution.
02:38<rnowak>and if you just run `aptitude` you get a pretty(?) curses frontend, some people like that ;p
02:39<SnoFox>I might have to start using aptitude.
02:40<SnoFox>Just got to remember not to spell "aptititude"
02:40<SnoFox>Too many tits. :p
02:40<SnoFox>(How could there be such a thing?)
02:40<rnowak>it'd go tits up
02:40<SnoFox>You know what would really sell me on aptitude?
02:40<SnoFox>Tits. Tits on the curses interface.
02:40<SnoFox>grueblur: I guess.
02:41<SnoFox>Oh man. Terrible thoughts.
02:41<SnoFox>An entire aptitude porno. aptit, aptass ...

03:33*eagles0513875 dances around anyone whose alive in here
03:33<grueblur>XFCE + netbook = win
03:34<eagles0513875>grueblur: ironically kde runs flawlessly on mine
03:34<eagles0513875>kubuntu does
03:34<grueblur>I even have some decent compiz multihead going on.
03:34<eagles0513875>their netbook remix is fucked up though
03:34<grueblur>I tried KDE for three seconds.
03:34<grueblur>It bounced and wiggled and made eyes at me like a french whore.
03:35<eagles0513875>i dont have desktop effects enabled at all
03:35<grueblur>I *want* gnome 3, but -- it can't figure out how to manage the canvas with my VGA ontop of LDVS.
03:36<grueblur>and, side-by-side > 2048, which is out-of-bounds for my N10 i915
03:36<grueblur>XFCE says, "OKAY"
03:37<grueblur>SnoFox: what distro?
03:37<grueblur>what distro are you using?
03:37<SnoFox>Ubuntu out of pure laziness.
03:37<grueblur><- mint
03:37<SnoFox>I stopped using Mint after something happend.
03:37<grueblur>which, is more or less the same, but -- without an upgrade path. :/
03:37<SnoFox>Yeah. :\
03:38<grueblur>I wish USB was fast enough to boot from.
03:38<grueblur>I mean -- you know.
03:40<SnoFox>I'm actually extremely curious.
03:40<grueblur>SnoFox: Curious. . . Do you know of any desktop hacks that will allow me to run a webpage as a desktop background?
03:40<SnoFox>Are there any ops around?
03:40<SnoFox>grueblur: Lol no. Never even thought about it.
03:40<SnoFox>But I suppose you can take Chrom(e|ium), full screen it, use Compiz to set it to no-focus/force-below.
03:40<SnoFox>Or something.
03:41<SnoFox>mikegrb: Was that your script or are you here?
03:41<eagles0513875>grueblur: it is its i would say the closest you can get to solid state on a budget
03:41-!-zeade [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
03:41<eagles0513875>using a persistent install on a usb pen drive
03:41<eagles0513875>the bottle neck then becomes the usb interface if its usb 1, 2 or now 3
03:41<grueblur>yeah, 2 is too slow for me.
03:41<foreverwondering>I think you can do that in Windoze. At least malware does it regularly
03:42<grueblur>God, I used to bleed MS blue so hard.
03:42<grueblur>2005, I snapped.
03:43<SnoFox>Okay, you know, I'm just gonna do it. And if the ops go NOOOOOoo then I'll take it down.
03:43<grueblur>SnoFox: what?
03:43*SnoFox is extremely curious.
03:44-!-akerl [] has joined #linode
03:44<SnoFox>It's not against -those- TOS, grueblur. :p
03:44<grueblur>Erm, there are others?
03:44-!-lanthan [] has joined #linode
03:45<grueblur>Like, unwritten geek-card laws?
03:45<SnoFox>When you put it like that...
03:45<grueblur>Oh, its killing me.
03:45<grueblur>What is it?
03:46<foreverwondering>Why SnoFox Why?
03:46<foreverwondering>read upthread
03:46<SnoFox>Upthread in a channel.
03:46<SnoFox>That's new.
03:47<grueblur>thread fault in non-threaded area.
03:48<foreverwondering>eh, too used to forums these days. IRC is more fun
03:48<SnoFox>mikegrb: wat
03:48<SnoFox>12:48am hostname = ;
03:48<SnoFox>Is it a bot?
03:49<SnoFox>I don't really frequent OFTC so I'm unsure of how their services/bots/IRCd works
03:49<eagles0513875>why is he using a multicast address
03:49<grueblur>Oh, you want to join a bot.
03:49<SnoFox>rnowak: Yeah, but he's spoofing?
03:49<SnoFox>grueblur: Erm, I was just looking at mikegrb.
03:49<rnowak>SnoFox: sure is
03:49<SnoFox>because all I've ever seen him say is "lulz"
03:49<akerl>He's real
03:50<grueblur>He does it for the (. . .)
03:50<grueblur>or trigger
03:51<grueblur>Wherefor does it matter?
03:51<grueblur>Do you want to make a bot that says 'lol' every time someone says, 'lulz'? Because, I think that would be bad.
03:52<grueblur>Don't cross the streams, SnoFox.
03:54<SnoFox>grueblur: No, no. I'm not making a bot that responds to any channel commands.
03:54<SnoFox>Which is why I'm just "doing it anyway"
03:54-!-Webhostbudd [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:54<grueblur>Just as long as it doesn't say anything -- I don't mind being logged.
03:55<SnoFox>It doesn't even log, per-say.
03:55<grueblur>*per se
03:55<eagles0513875>I LLOVE LINODE :D
03:55-!-LinPie [] has joined #linode
03:55<akerl>grueblur: That's good, since you're being logged all over the place already...
03:55<SnoFox>Thanks for the correction, grueblur. :p
03:57<SnoFox>LOL grueblur.
03:58-!-diimdeep [~diimdeep@] has joined #linode
03:58<SnoFox>And now it goes silent... :<
03:58<SnoFox>Every time.
03:58<SnoFox>Toast. I'm going to go get some toast.
03:59<grueblur>Good plan.
03:59<grueblur>When in doubt, make toast.
03:59<SnoFox>grueblur: Of course. :p
03:59<grueblur>When in toast, toast toast.
03:59<grueblur>listen to some art bell coast to coast; eating toast.
04:00<grueblur>This one is pretty good.
04:02-!-akerl [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
04:05-!-phil012943 is now known as philip--away
04:08<Ecksley>Does an Nginx config file have to go in both /etc/nginx/sites-available and /etc/nginx/sites-enabled?
04:08<SnoFox>Only -enabled.
04:09<grueblur>nginx > Apache?
04:09<Ecksley>SnoFox: Thanks. Does it matter what it is called?
04:09<SnoFox>yes grueblur.
04:09<SnoFox>Ecksley: Not really, as long as Nginx is being told to include it.
04:10<Ecksley>SnoFox: Where would I do that?
04:10<SnoFox>Maybe that'll help
04:14-!-Zr40 [~zr40@] has joined #linode
04:16<SnoFox>You good, Ecksley?
04:16<rnowak>it should go in -available, and be symlinked to -enabled if you now want to use that folder structure
04:17<Ecksley>SnoFox: Nah. Sorry I am trying to make sense of this
04:17<SnoFox>Basically, name the file whatever you want, put it in sites-enabled, and make sure in nginx.conf you have: include sites-enabled/file.conf
04:17<SnoFox>What rnowak says is likely the "right way" but it's easier to ignore that.
04:18<SnoFox>And honestly, I don't see the point for personal sites.
04:18<rnowak>if he is using that structure, something probably set it up for him, and it is probably already including sites-enabled/*
04:19<SnoFox>Is "he" me?
04:19<Ecksley>I think it is me
04:19<rnowak>it would be Ecksley
04:19<Ecksley>Yes, it already has the include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;
04:20<SnoFox>Then just pop whatever files into sites-available and symlink them into sites-enabled, or just put the actual file in.
04:21<Ecksley>So.... What is symlinking?
04:21<rnowak>symbolic links; a link that points at another path
04:22<rnowak>ln -s source_file link_name
04:24-!-crimbox2 [] has joined #linode
04:24<Ecksley>Sort of like this default alias I see in the enabled folder I guess.
04:24-!-foreverwondering [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
04:24<SnoFox>My default nginx install on a different server...
04:24<SnoFox>[josh@void ~]$ ls -l /etc/nginx/sites-enabled [ 1:24AM]
04:25<SnoFox>total 0
04:25<SnoFox>lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 Aug 26 22:25 default -> /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
04:25<SnoFox>That's what you have. /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default symlinked to /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
04:25<crimbox2>this chat is stuffed up
04:26<crimbox2>is anyone else experience extremely slow speeds on their linode?
04:26<SnoFox>crimbox2: No issues here.
04:26<SnoFox>But then again, I'm just pushing text out.
04:26<SnoFox>Which datacenter, crimbox2?
04:26<crimbox2>is there a way to tell whether its me or them?
04:26<crimbox2>asia pacific
04:26<SnoFox>crimbox2: Uh, download a 100MB test file from a different site? :)
04:27<linbot>mtr combines the functionality of traceroute and ping into one easy to use tool, and the output can be useful for determining where the source of a problem is. It can be downloaded from or for Windows. MTR summaries can be retrieved in-channel using the command !mtr-CITY where CITY is fremont, atlanta, newark, dallas or london.
04:27<SnoFox>Oh, mtr too.
04:27<SnoFox>I don't see how that would be able to detect actual speed changes, actually, rnowak.
04:28<rnowak>speed is ambiguous
04:28<crimbox2>download speed: 7.9Mbs; upload: 0.61Mbs
04:28<crimbox2>so its not me then
04:28<rnowak>I am not a mind reader
04:28<SnoFox>8Mbps is slow?
04:28<rnowak>crimbox2: how are you experiencing the slowness?
04:28-!-Zr40 [~zr40@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
04:28<crimbox2>im donwloading at 7Mbs
04:29<crimbox2>im downloading at 7Mbs
04:29<crimbox2>test test
04:30-!-crimbox3 [] has joined #linode
04:31<crimbox3>im downloading at 7Mbs so its not me
04:31<rnowak>09:28:43 rnowak: crimbox2: how are you experiencing the slowness?
04:31<crimbox3>how? i cant upload any files. i cant load pages...
04:32<rnowak>So what have you done to diagnose the problem?
04:32<crimbox3>what can i do?
04:33<SnoFox>Hahaha, rnowak.
04:33<crimbox3>ive restart apache
04:33<rnowak>So you can SSH in fine?
04:35<crimbox3>just tried ssh'ing. typed ls and now its frozen...
04:35<rnowak>you might be ooming; run top when you can
04:35-!-crimbox2 [] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)]
04:36<crimbox3>i can log in but then it freezes
04:37<rnowak>see if you can fire off `free -m` before it does
04:37-!-ali [] has joined #linode
04:37<SnoFox>rnowak: Isn't that stuff in the web-panel?
04:38<rnowak>there's CPU and disk block IO
04:38<SnoFox>No RAM?
04:38<crimbox3>also, is really slow for me for some reason. not sure if related
04:38<SnoFox> is fine for me.
04:39<rnowak>there's no easy non-intrusive way for the xen hypervisor to distinguish what a domU is doing with the alocated RAM, afaik
04:39<ali>hi everyone. I'm currently a SliceHost customer and thinking to migrate to Linode. Can anybody point me good howto on this?
04:39<crimbox3>here is free -m
04:39<SnoFox>109 days of uptime. :>
04:40<SnoFox>Since I upgraded to a Linode 768
04:40<rnowak>you don't appear to be swapping; run mtr from both sides, could be network related and you may have high packet loss
04:41-!-michael_mbp [~michael_m@] has joined #linode
04:41<rnowak>check htop or top, might be you have a few runaway processes
04:42<ali>rnowak, checking it, thanks!
04:43<crimbox3>running top, none of the processes use over 1% of memory
04:43<rnowak>you're looking for CPU usage now, not memory
04:44<crimbox3>cpu is all 0
04:44<rnowak>then it likely is network, maybe, perhaps, possibly - mtr from both sides
04:45<crimbox3>i dont understand the output of mtr
04:45<crimbox3>but things seem to be working fine now....
04:45<crimbox3>ill run those commands again when its gets worse

08:20<user1602>got a question related to the api
08:20<@heckman>aska way
08:20<@heckman>ask away even
08:20<user1602>the response format for json
08:20<user1602>is returned as text/html
08:21<user1602>any specific reason for that?
08:21<BarkerJr>hey guys, why do my 512s show only 435132k ram in top?
08:22<user1602>or is it hard to fix :) when proper format is specified, some viewers enable pretty printing the responses
08:22<user1602>and that would be nice
08:22<BarkerJr>my two centos5 servers show the full 512, while the two centos6 one just 424MB
08:24-!-descender [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]

09:55<@heckman>You don't want to run that on the Mac, you want to run it on the system that PHP is on.
09:55<@heckman>So connect to that system via SSH and run telnet [IP_address] [MySQL_port_number]
09:56<luisdelgiudice>i don't have ssh access to that
09:56<@heckman>You don't have access to SSH on your Linoe?
09:56<luisdelgiudice>it's not a linode
09:56<luisdelgiudice>the one i'm trying to connect from
09:57<luisdelgiudice>but one question
09:57<luisdelgiudice>if the problem was that i can't connect
09:57<luisdelgiudice>how do i solve it
09:57<@heckman>Determine what's not allowing you to connect.
09:57<luisdelgiudice>contacting the host provider?
09:57<@heckman>Firewall on MySQL host side, firewall on the system where the PHP script is being ran, routing issue, etc.
09:58<luisdelgiudice>ohh i see
09:58<luisdelgiudice>so the problem is with the php that is trying to connect
09:58<luisdelgiudice>not with the host of the sql?
09:58<@heckman>I don't know. That's what you need to figure out.

09:59<luisdelgiudice>but it should be that
10:00<luisdelgiudice>because i can't connect either to a free mysql host i registered totest
10:00<luisdelgiudice>and i can connect to both from mypc
10:00<@heckman>Yeah, may be something on the host where the script is being ran.

11:15<linbot>mtr combines the functionality of traceroute and ping into one easy to use tool, and the output can be useful for determining where the source of a problem is. It can be downloaded from or for Windows. MTR summaries can be retrieved in-channel using the command !mtr-CITY where CITY is fremont, atlanta, newark, dallas or london.
11:15<mrilhan>I have pingdom setup to check (response time, does the page load? etc.)
11:16<mrilhan>seems that there are recurring timeouts every X checks
11:16<avenj>OK, but without mtr, you don't know why or where
11:16<mrilhan>it does a traceroute when it timesout, and it seems like a router in frankfurt, germany is messing it up
11:17<mrilhan>perhaps outside of linodes control, but I thought maybe relocating my slice might solve the problem. guess not.

11:17<mrilhan>do you think even a change in hardware would help? or are all the alternatives places my slice could be routed the exact same way?

11:18<avenj>they're fairly spread out geographically
11:18<mrilhan>so there's an aws-like region/AZ setup behind the scenes at any global location?

12:46<hawk>ooh, xfree86
12:46<alpb>Apparently not in official Ubuntu repositories.
12:46<alpb>Trying to do
12:47<hawk>Most everything switched to Xorg which is mostly the same thing, do you specifically want xfree86?
12:47<alpb>Actually I have seen this from that article
12:47<hawk>Ok, but the article is from 2006
12:47<alpb>Not sure if it is still valid. Yep 2006.
12:48<vodka>for that purpose you can replace it with xorg I think
12:48<hawk>Indeed, I would guess it's mostly relevant if you replace "xfree86" with "xorg"
12:49<alpb>Hmm I already have xorg
12:50<alpb>Just want to make sure, it is possible to start an X server on linode vps, right?

13:05<hawk>alpb: I would guess vnc4server and tightvncserver are the current variations
13:05<@heckman>SnoFox: what does that bot use to generate the graph?

13:06<Gabtendo>what does it mean if somebody has complete non-response all the way until it gets to the host?

13:08<@akerl>Well, at least not one that I've linked

13:08<alpb>hawk: I'm clueless about starting a Xvnc server. Vnc4server should be already running. What should I do now to get an X server running?
13:08<@heckman>Looks to be hilites.

13:13<@heckman>SnoFox: it'll be interesting to see how it gets over time. Pretty hectic I'd imagine.
13:14<Gabtendo>would something like this from server>user (not from a linode in this case) indicate a problem with that router before the?:
13:14<SnoFox>heckman: We should only hope. :P
13:14<@heckman>Gabtendo: could be the end location dropping ICMP
13:15<@heckman>Gabtendo: BOFH drop ICMP
13:15<SnoFox>After so long, I can merge them into a gif or .avi as a continuous thing. To see how the channel goes along through time.
13:15<Gabtendo>is it hard to determine the problem? that last router is about 50 ms out of the final destination, btw
13:15<Gabtendo>here is the user trying to MTR that same server from above:

13:58<KyleXY>I need to make a centosatemyram, heh
13:59<Gabtendo>KyleXY: centos∫⁶⁄⁵₀ 5 dx = centos 6
14:00<Gabtendo>close enough, right?
14:00<BarkerJr>I kinda think you guys are trolling
14:00<KyleXY>Gabtendo: woo, what the hell was that encoding wise? .-.
14:00<Gabtendo>KyleXY: that was an integral
14:00<KyleXY>BarkerJr: I might be a bit biased about centos, but it's being nom'ed on by the kernel heh
14:00<BarkerJr>"top" always shows the 512mb, so that means it includes kernel ram
14:00<Gabtendo>akerl: what do I do next?
14:00*eagles0513875 loves linode
14:01<BarkerJr>so are you telling me that as of centos6 "top" no longer includes kernel ram like centos5 did?

14:03<eagles0513875>27 inch i mac and 13 inch mac book pro from 2009 lol
14:03<Gabtendo>Here's a better view:
14:04<BarkerJr>I just built a new centos6 and it shows 512, so there's proof that you're making stuff up
14:04<hawk>BarkerJr: Which kernel version?
14:05<eagles0513875>eww CRAPTOS
14:05<eagles0513875>i would take fedora over centos any day
14:05<BarkerJr>oh, hmm, the new one is on 3.0
14:05<KyleXY>BarkerJr: OK, you'll never have all 512mb available for applications, ever.
14:06<BarkerJr>so if I upgrade my kernel I get 100MB more ram back
14:06<eagles0513875>outa curiosity guys are all linodes paravirtualized xen guests?
14:07<MTecknology>eagles0513875: yup
14:07<BarkerJr>aren't there still a couple really old hosts in linode pre-xen?
14:07<hawk>BarkerJr: There was some 2.6 kernel version that had a bug that made it reserve a bunch of ram unnecessarily (2.6.39(.0)?)
14:08<MTecknology>BarkerJr: maybe.. i'm pretty sure they're being forced off of it, though
14:08<eagles0513875>MTecknology: ok HVM's would only really be needed to virtualize windows right or can you paravirtualize windows and use pygrub?
14:08<MTecknology>eagles0513875: i'd like to shoot anything rhel based in the middle of the head.. i know that's not what they use for smart making, but maybe it'd kill....
14:09<Gabtendo>akerl: so you don't think I should contact the datacenter people about it at all?
14:09<eagles0513875>MTecknology: had me swearing setting up the ispcp panel back in the day of working in a DC
14:10<eagles0513875>what a nightmare
14:10<eagles0513875>MTecknology: did learn a neat hack on perl though
14:10<eagles0513875>which i think would be something interesting to document for all linode users
14:10<eagles0513875>ispcp needed perl 5.10 or greater
14:10<eagles0513875>and centos 5 had 5.8
14:11<eagles0513875>i ended up learning how to setup a perlbrew and have the perlbrew with 5.14 which was latest at the time sourced
14:11<eagles0513875>on reboot basically tricking the system into using 5.14 without touching the system perl

14:22<linbot>setup is not a verb. Please see
14:22<rnowak>and no
14:22<rnowak>you can run it emulated, but unless you have a death wish, you do not want to emulate it
14:22<@heckman>Do you mean like, instead of deploying Ubuntu on your Linode runing Windows or running Windows inside of Ubuntu.
14:23<eagles0513875>heckman: im asking not for my linode cuz im going to need to deploy windows for a client
14:23<eagles0513875>and i was thinking of using xen
14:23<@heckman>Xen HVM can do it.
14:23<eagles0513875>i know that but is it possible in a paravirtualized guest running pygrub
14:23<rnowak>just don't keep your hopes up if the client needs proper GPU access
14:23<BarkerJr>eagles0513875: the perl on my centos is 5.10.1
14:23<@heckman>eagles0513875: Do you mean emulating it inside of a virtualized guest?
14:23<eagles0513875>BarkerJr: your on 6
14:23<rnowak>no, windows cannot run on a paravirtualized platform
14:23<eagles0513875>BarkerJr: i was on centos 5.6
14:24<eagles0513875>then ill probably go vmware esxi in that case
14:24<BarkerJr>oh :)
14:24<rnowak>if you can run vmware esxi you can run xen hvm
14:24<eagles0513875>rnowak: there is hardly any documentation for hvms though
14:24<BarkerJr>eagles0513875: centos 5 was released in 2007
14:25<eagles0513875>i used it before 6 came out
14:25<rnowak>eagles0513875: there's not much difference compared to running it pv
14:25<eagles0513875>was setting up ispcp web hosting panel
14:25<eagles0513875>rnowak: ok
14:26<eagles0513875>BarkerJr: it needed perl 5.10 on 5.6 it had perl 5.8 used perlbrew to get me on latest and set it to be source on reboot etc and it fixed the panel issues i was having
14:26<eagles0513875>kool hack so to speak

15:16<jameswilson2>AlexC_: you mean ?
15:16<AlexC_>jameswilson2: Yes
15:16<Peng>aaronl: The only thing you can do to interfere with "their systems/managers" is use a non-ext3 fs. Even then it's not like anything explodes; you just miss out on some features. Like backups.
15:16<jameswilson2>AlexC_: thx, didnt know that existed actually, very cool.
15:16<AlexC_>jameswilson2: Wildcards are ugly, and in most cases people can simply use the API to create the DNS records they actually need, when they need them
15:17<jameswilson2>AlexC_: it really depends on what you're doing and what you consider ugly i suppose.
15:17<AlexC_>jameswilson2: No, they are always ugly
15:17<hawk>API or dynamic updates or whatever is applicable depending on how their DNS is hosted.
15:17<@heckman>I guess I could technically do dynamic DNS through the DNS Manager now that I have a "server" at home.

17:28<EugeneKay>I mentally control the tty
17:28<ChemicalKicks>How do you I meant to say :D
17:28<ChemicalKicks>Do you use the ssh keys as per the guides?
17:28<ChemicalKicks>I can never get it to work
17:28<tonyyarusso>Open gnome-terminal, type ssh hostname.
17:28<EugeneKay>You're setting the keys up wrong, then.
17:28<ChemicalKicks>heh probably
17:28<EugeneKay>PuTTY + Pageant is a great key solution on Windows.
17:29<tonyyarusso>I usually use password auth, but have keys for some things.
17:29<ChemicalKicks>See I was using ???PuttyGen???
17:29<EugeneKay>For linux I stitched together a coupla tricks to make ssh-agent behave nicely with screen
17:29<EugeneKay>PuttyGen is used to make the keys. You need to tell Pageant to store them for use, and PuTTY to use Pageant(or to read the keys itself).
17:30<ChemicalKicks>Ah so you NEED Pagant running then
17:30<EugeneKay>"or to read the keys itself"
17:30<ChemicalKicks>Why can't putty read them as is?
17:30<EugeneKay>PuTTY by itself will do it, but if you're using encrypted keys you'll have to type the passphrase each connection.
17:30<EugeneKay>And you should be using password-protected keys.
17:30<ChemicalKicks>See on the CLI I see the keyt being refused
17:31<ChemicalKicks>Should be?
17:31<EugeneKay>That's a different thing, then. Your .ssh/authorized_keys on the server is wrong somehow.
17:31<tonyyarusso>Refused by the server?
17:31<ChemicalKicks>So I shouldn't just leave the password gfor the key blank
17:31<EugeneKay>Probably excess permissions
17:31<tonyyarusso>Is it in authorized_keys for the user?
17:32<ChemicalKicks>Spent a couple of hours yesterday following a couple of guides, couldn't find one that results in the keys working
17:32<rnowak>you're following the guides wrong then, they likely aren't all wrong
17:32<ChemicalKicks>Tony, no, I never had a folder for authorised keys
17:32<EugeneKay>Generally speaking, / and /home need to be 755, /home/username and /home/username/.ssh/ needs to be 700, and /home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys 600.
17:32<ChemicalKicks>Yeah I set all the folder permssions.
17:33<ChemicalKicks>I'd probably be better melting your heads about it when I was sober

17:34<ChemicalKicks>See the problem is though, the time you have to get drunk is also usually the only time you have to do anything too geeky
17:34<tonyyarusso>I get the feeling he doesn't know what authorized_keys is for.
17:34<ChemicalKicks>I don't!

18:46<swaj>bittorrent itself is fine, just don't download anything that breaks US copyright laws, etc. :)

18:48-!-marcopkb [] has joined #linode
18:48<swaj>doesn't have to be a US IP -- if your linode shows up in the peers list, period, they'll send a DMCA notice to Linode, and you're done :)

18:50<swaj>why do you think thepiratebay users get caught all the time?
18:51<chesty>depends what country you live in
18:51-!-lakin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:52<swaj>here's how it works: The MPAA or RIAA watches pretty much all the popular trackers. They keep logs of every IP that downloads crap through those trackers. They they use ARIN/RIPE/APNIC/etc. to look up the registered abuse handle for each IP they find, and send out letters.
18:52<swaj>it doesn't matter where the tracker is
18:54<chesty>i didn't say anything about trackers
18:54<swaj>you said it had to be downloaded through a US IP -- all I'm saying is it doesn't matter what IP your linode gets the content from -- if it's even in the peers list, that's enough.
18:55<swaj>and Linode is an american company, so placing a linode in the london or tokyo DC's will not save you.
18:55<chesty>I never said it had to be through a US IP, I said you're guarenteed to get one from a US IP
18:55<swaj>17:49 [ chesty] your guaranteed to get a complaint if you download copyright material from a US ip address.
18:55<swaj>doesn't need to be US, is all I'm saying.
18:56<Tanner>does anyone here know much about setting up cgi scripts in nginx?
18:56<Loft>So I should be good if I use super secret torrent trackers? :p
18:56<swaj>likely not
18:56<swaj>Linode does not routinely monitor traffic into or out of your linodes
18:56<rnowak>Tanner: I suspect lots of people do. Your question has been answered, I hope it helps.
18:56<swaj>however, if they receive abuse complaints (and they will) you're done :)
18:57<chesty>you're not done, you have to address the complaint
18:57<Tanner>rnowak: i'm trying to get icinga working in nginx
18:57<swaj>if they catch you, via logs or whatever, you're done.

19:10-!-John1234 [] has left #linode [Kopete 0.12.7 :]
19:11<swaj>just make sure /var/run/nginx exists, and make sure the user you're running that perl script as can write to that folder
19:11<swaj>(i.e. www-data)
19:11<Tanner>i run the script as root, which i assume is a bad idea
19:11*rnowak deaths
19:12<swaj>um.... yeah....
19:12<Tanner>thought so
19:12<swaj>run it as www-data or some other unprivileged user
19:12<rnowak>or alter it to drop privileges; creating the socket as root is fine but... yeah ^
19:13<swaj>it's a unix socket, so meh
19:13<swaj>just run it as non-root
19:14<Tanner>i still can't figure out how to make the web interface work right
19:14<swaj>that perl script is just a wrapper. it takes any requests and wraps them in FCGI
19:14<swaj>so nginx can talk to it
19:14<Tanner>i know that
19:16<Tanner>insights on what i'm doing wrong?
19:16<swaj>is your perl script listening at /var/run/fastcgi-wrapper/fastcgi-wrapper.sock?
19:17<swaj>your regex also only works for files that end in ".cgi" -- I assume that's on purpose?
19:18<Tanner>I have no idea what I'm doing, honestly
19:18<swaj>also, it seems the SCRIPT_FILENAME could be wrong

19:46<swaj>what's the error now in nginx error.log?
19:46<Amphibulus>What is the most reliable datacenter, and I'm not talking about the latency, just the uptime.
19:47<swaj>it can't be permission denied
19:47<swaj>Amphibulus: any but Fremont.
19:47<Tanner>swaj: but it is...
19:47<swaj>then the modes on that socket must still be wrong
19:48<swaj>nginx has to be able to write to that socket
19:48<swaj>not just read

19:49<swaj>Amphibulus: all of linode's DC are world-class, high-quality DC's at least on par with anything rackspace can do, except Fremont. Hurricane Electric has proven to be inept at running a DC
19:51<swaj>it's worth noting that the Fremont issues are not Linode's fault (at least they aren't usually). It's entirely on the shoulders of Hurricane Electric.
19:51<hawk>I don't know about inept at running a DC in general, but their older FMT1 facility has had a bunch of problems
19:51<swaj>power issues are just unacceptable for a DC, imo.
19:52<swaj>especially one that's supposed to be as high-class as HE
19:52<irogex>yep, stay away from fremont, been burnt too many times!
19:52<Amphibulus>High Economie class :P
19:53<swaj>so I can say I've been in Newark and quite happy with it

23:30<swaj> -> A handle little daemon that sits in the background and watches all the other various daemons on your box, and lets you know if they die. It can do detailed monitoring (like checking if it responds to TCP request, etc)
23:31<swaj>it can also restart the process if it dies

23:31<Amphibulus>there is open source solution for that
