11:05<FluffyFoxeh>I want an ethernet router that runs Linux and I can SSH into it instead of screwing around with a Web interface. Does such a thing exist in a consumer price range?
11:06<@jhaas>I actually just did that 2 days ago because I got fed up with my Verizon Quantum G1100
11:06<@jhaas> >
11:06<@jhaas>there are cheaper ones
11:07<@jhaas>Installing OpenWRT was just uploading an image file via the OEM web interface
11:07<@jhaas>(I bought that one specifically for 802.11ac)
11:08<FluffyFoxeh>I've had mixed results with openwrt/ddwrt
11:09<FluffyFoxeh>Someone should sell a router with it preinstalled and supported properly :p
11:09<@mcintosh>raspberry pi ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
11:09<@mcintosh>(or another SBC)
11:10<FluffyFoxeh>mcintosh: yeah exactly. I basically want a raspberry pi with more ethernet ports and routing hardware
11:11<FluffyFoxeh>jhaas: GL.iNet... huh
11:11<@jhaas>I haven't used them, but they came up while I was doing research before buying the Linksys

14:45<dwfreed>FluffyFoxeh: jhaas: I have a GL.iNet device; I put stock OpenWRT on it easily (GL.iNet contributes their work back to upstream), and it works really well for what I use it for (travel router)
14:45<FluffyFoxeh>ah, neat
14:46<dwfreed>the OEM firmware is also OpenWRT based, as I'm sure the Amazon link mentions (I didn't click it)

14:54<dwfreed>FluffyFoxeh: if you want to splurge, Ubiquiti EdgeRouter devices do run Linux, and can be SSHed into
14:54<dwfreed>EdgeRouter Lite is probably best bang for the buck
14:54<dwfreed>for a home setup, anyway
14:55<dwfreed>Unifi APs run Linux and can be SSHed into as well, though they're definitely easier to manage from the Unifi Controller webapp
14:57<FluffyFoxeh>Like this?
14:57<FluffyFoxeh>Actually quite a bit cheaper than I expected
14:58<dwfreed>yes, but the Lite is significantly better than the X
14:59<FluffyFoxeh>that one's about $60 more. Not too bad
15:01<dwfreed> 150 CAD
15:03<FluffyFoxeh>I have a 500mbit uplink at home

16:10<synfinatic>if you're going to run any other Ubiquiti gear, be sure to pick either their UniFi line or the EdgeRouter/etc line.
16:10<synfinatic>The ERLite-3 is great, but kinda annoying if you're using their sweet AP's/etc which are UniFi
16:11<synfinatic>since you're @ 500Mbps- be aware that certain features are software (not hardware accell) and will hurt performance
16:25<dwfreed>synfinatic: meh, you can run both UNMS and Unifi Controller
16:25<synfinatic>sure you can. but they don't talk to each other
16:26<synfinatic>i dunno. my network at home is complicated enough. i don't want to config all my vlans/etc twice
16:26<dwfreed>most routers that don't include APs don't talk to the APs anyway
16:28<dwfreed>I'm setting up a network soon with an ER-4 and a Unifi Switch 24 and nanoHD; network setup requires 4 ports on the router, and I am not paying for the USG Pro
16:28<dwfreed>it's not going to be that much of a hassle, even though I have 7 VLANs
16:29<synfinatic>i was given a ER3 and once I added the Unifi switch 24 & AP, I bought the USG. the USG Pro is a bit more. not sure it's worth it. tempting though.
16:29<synfinatic>but my cable service is the limiting factor, not my USG.
16:30<dwfreed>USG Pro is $350 ish
16:30<dwfreed>unless I buy it from Baltic, in which case I can get it for $303
16:31<dwfreed>even so, the ER-4 is $172 from Baltic
16:34<synfinatic>i totally get it. just my time is $$$ and in the end i realized it was cheaper to buy a USG even though I had a perfectly good ER3 in my hand. everyone's calculation is different.
16:35<dwfreed>I have all the time in the world, in this case
16:44<synfinatic>i really really do wish UniFi supported more of the advanced USG features. the way you have to effectively reverse config it (do it on CLI, export JSON, copy JSON to controller) is such a PITA
16:45<synfinatic>since there isn't a full JSON schema available

17:01<dwfreed>synfinatic: they just released a new controller version yesterday; probably has a lot more USG features
17:01<sehh>hey there, I'm trying to use an older playbook that I had with ansible 2.5 and it was working fine. This playbook uses the linode module. When run with my newer ansible 2.7.5, it complains with: linode-python required for this module, but I've already installed linode-python with pip/pip3 (for both python2 and python3). Any suggestions please?
17:02<dwfreed>ansible is probably not looking in the path linode-python was installed in
17:04<sehh>I am not aware that I need to do something extra to get ansible to look for packages in a specific dir, previously it worked without modifications.
17:05<sehh>I know that pip3 installed linode-python under /usr/local/lib/ and from the shell I can run python3 and import linode, but ansible still complains. Any suggestions how to debug this problem? I tried running the playbook with -vvv but that did not show anything relevant.
17:08<dwfreed>is PYTHONPATH set in your shell?
17:08<dwfreed>(echo $PYTHONPATH)
17:10<sehh>dwfreed, no its not set
17:10<synfinatic>dwfreed or might be the sec vuln fix :)
17:14<dwfreed>sehh: the linode module in ansible requires linode-python be installed for python2
17:14<dwfreed>check that 'python2 -c "import linode"' works
17:16<millisa>can you share a sample task from the playbook that uses the module?
17:16<linbot>Maybe not a verb. But you can do it here:
17:17<sehh>I'm going to try ansible_python_interpreter, so force ansible to use python2
17:17-!-Edgeman [] has joined #linode
17:17-!-Edgeman is "Edgeman" on #linode
17:21<sehh>changing the interpreter worked fine, thanks to the guys over at #ansible
17:21<sehh>more details here:
17:33<sehh>in case you are wondering, the linode-python package does not work with python3. It will install with "pip3" but it won't work, but ansible will complain it can't find it. The solution as I mention above, is to force ansible to execute the python2 interpreter.
17:34<sehh>at least temporarily, until ansible 2.8 comes out, which will support the newer linode v4 api module

18:58<gabriel1>hola, mi amigo
18:58<ZetZ>One think they could do to improve is probably to reduce the memory prices
18:59<ZetZ>But I guess that is not easy, since memory is so expensive these days...
18:59<millisa>the pricing seems to be in line with their competitors right now

21:45<heckler>the ip4 address assigned to my VPS shows someone elses website when i type it into my browser... I understand multiple domains can point to the same IP, but then how am I able to ssh to my ip directly without using a domain name?
21:46<heckler>because that works fine
21:49<@mcintosh>a linode's public IP isn't shared in that way
21:50<@mcintosh>so whatever you're seeing at the IP is in some way configured on your Linode (the VPS)
21:51<heckler>the A record for their website is pointing to my ip
21:53<@mcintosh>an A record shouldn't dictate what is displayed if you browse directly to the IPv4 address
21:53<@mcintosh>unless this is a shared VPS of some sort, you'd have to be configuring something that would result in the IP address displaying something when browsed to directly in a browser
21:54<@mcintosh>shared meaning e.g. you aren't the sole accountholder

21:57<heckler>ok my vps is shut down and when i browse to my ip this other website is still showing up there
21:57<heckler>so it's not running on my vps
21:58<@mcintosh>if your Linode has an IPv4 address and you shut it down, the IP won't be connectable any longer
21:58<@mcintosh>fundamentally, that's how Linodes work
21:58<@mcintosh>so, if you're seeing something strange, I'd recommend opening a ticket so we can help clear things up
22:00<heckler>yes, that's what i thought, but i think i figured out what's going on, my mistake
22:00<heckler>thanks anyway
22:01<@mcintosh>no problem - glad you may have gotten to the bottom of it!
