01:05<zifnab>well, techncially, box i'm fucking with is doing horrific dns over tls shit
01:05<zifnab>about to finish dropping linode dns finally :/ wasn't sure where that one lived still
01:06*dwfreed still uses Linode DNS
01:06<dwfreed>as a slave, but nonetheless
01:06<zifnab>i am tired of fucking with the 15 minute delay
01:06<dwfreed>so run a hidden master
01:07<dwfreed>it's super easy to set up, and then you can have DNS UPDATEs
01:07<dwfreed>which is how I have dehydrated do ACME verification for LE

01:17<dwfreed>mine are, dehydrated hasn't complained yet
01:21<zifnab>yeah right now to renew certs (they all expire on the same day!) it takes about 8 hours
01:21<zifnab>i'm over it
01:21<zifnab>seeing as i'm generally getting rid of $cloud things, i'll just use route53
01:22<dwfreed>"seeing as I'm generally getting rid of $cloud things, I'll just use a cloud thing"
01:22<Peng>Route 53 takes like 30 seconds. It's at least ten times slower than dwfreed's way. :D
01:26<zifnab>don't ask so many questions you'll go blind

10:04-!-captlid [] has joined #linode
10:04-!-captlid is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
10:05<captlid>question, is it possible to enable video framebuffers on a linux box in linode, I want to view image previes with the fim library
10:06<captlid>and the images only display when i load up an external x11 client/server [mobaxterm client on windows]
10:06<captlid>and does the server need to have an actual graphics module installed somewhere on its motherboard for this to work?
10:07<hanson2keyz>please what are the possible steps to enable me install linode
10:09<hanson2keyz>Please i need help here i am a starter, please i need some possible steps to get in
10:10<captlid>@hanson2keyz install what? make an instance [pick a linux distribution]
10:11<captlid>after linode makes your instance theyll give you the network address, and a password to login into via secure shell
10:11<captlid>download an SSH client if youre using a mac or windows computer
10:11<hanson2keyz>i have registered an account now and how to navigate on it
10:12<dubidub>What do you mean by a mailer?
10:12<hanson2keyz>please continue
10:13<hanson2keyz>yes a mailer
10:13<captlid>i used this guide when i put my first instance up
10:14<dubidub>What are you going to use the mailer for?
10:14<hanson2keyz>the person that was helping me here is late so i have to try and it on my own
10:15<hanson2keyz>sending newsletter to clients for advert
10:16<hanson2keyz>Do i need any special training to enable me install it
10:16<dubidub>I wouldn't send such emails directly myself. Use a service.
10:16<dubidub>Deliverability will be a nightmare.
10:17<hanson2keyz>So how do i get a Service here?
10:17<dubidub>If you have some technical knowledge, Amazon SES is the cheapest.
10:18<dubidub>I use that as a smarthost for outgoing mail.
10:18<hanson2keyz>No i don't have
10:19<dubidub>Then I would drop installing a mailserver and go for something like Mailchimp for marketing campaigns or newsletters.
10:20<Zr40>+1 for having a service deal with email instead of doing it yourself
10:20<hanson2keyz>Okay can you assist me in any of these mailing platform?
10:21<dubidub>Yes, they can :)
10:25<hanson2keyz>so can i have the link for whom to contact?
10:27<dubidub>Sorry for being nasty.
10:32<captlid>yeh don't make your own email server for sending out emails, its not like it was 10-15 years ago, where sending and deliverability wasn't an issue
10:32<grawity>wonder if gmail still blacklists linode's ipv6
10:32<captlid>dont think so
10:33<captlid>i send emails to myself from my server to gmail and the connection goes over ip6
10:33<captlid>messages do go into spam folder though
10:33<grawity>yeah I think that's the same thing
10:33<captlid>oh i thought u meant blocks completely
10:33<grawity>I don't quite remember if it was rejecting mail entirely or just failing all the spam checks
10:34<captlid>if i add the email address to my contacts after the first email sent, it goes in my inbox afterward
10:34<grawity>but I could only solve it by getting a custom /64 from linode
10:35<grawity>i.e. the defautl 2a01:7e00:0:0::/64 was blacklisted, other subnets weren't
10:36<captlid>why did google blacklist? abusers?
10:41<Dragon>I hear mailgun is pretty good, too

23:00<@rgerke>Redentor: Do you need me to look into this for you?
23:02<Redentor>rgerke, thanks for the reply, sure it seemd that there no arm64 package.
23:06<Redentor>i got it working now.
23:07<@rgerke>Okay, good. I was doing some research on it. What did you do to get it to work, out of curiosity? This is the first I've actually come across this particular issue.
23:11<Redentor>rgerke, i put "stretch" instead of "stable"
23:12<Redentor>rgerke, did a dpkg -i longviewpackage.
23:13<Redentor>but i still have: "N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-arm64/Packages' as repository ' stretch InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64'
23:13<zifnab>i'd imagine they only build amd64 packages
23:13<zifnab>and maybe x86
23:14<Redentor>i got a nanopineo2 device.
23:16<@rgerke>I'm checking to see if Longview supports arm64.
23:18<zifnab> it's set as arch:all
23:18<zifnab>it's just a perl script
23:18<zifnab>according to, you only release for i386 amd64 armhf
23:18<zifnab>which is not arm64
23:19<zifnab>i would imagine if you grabbed, it would magically work, as there's no arch limitation there
23:19<zifnab>curl; dpkg -i linode-longview_1.1.5_all.deb
23:19<zifnab>er, wget, right, too late.
23:19<@rgerke>Looks like zifnab beat me to the answer.
23:20<zifnab>its like i do this for a living ro something :P
23:20<zifnab>deb files are stupid, we should go back to scp'ing binaries around.
23:20<@rgerke>!point zifnab
23:20<linbot>rgerke: Point given to zifnab. (38)
23:21<Redentor>zifnab, yes, without the reposotory.
23:21<zifnab>long story short, someone at linode would need to mess with release settings to add more arch's ( to include `all`, which their deb is already set to do
23:21<Redentor>zifnab, i agree !
23:22<zifnab>although, personally, i'd just set up prometheus and a few exporters and call it a day
