in my dns server 'dig cel.com.py' times out, but if i 'dig cel.com.py @ns1.hosnet.com.ar' it works, why could this be? where should i start looking?
dan__t
Is your NS authorative for cel.com.py?
smooge
donavan: the floor show happened an hour early I think
socram
dan__t: no
dan__t
socram, does your nameserver not act as a recursive nameserver?
socram
if authorative means that i've cel.com.py in my domain, no, it's not on my domain.
dan__t
That's what I meant.
It's common practice for hosting nameservers to not be recursive resolvers
socram
but why google.com works? and this one does not? what's the difference? they are both outside my domain.
z00dax
socram: get the local network admin to look

(Action) stabs named
umesh
has anyone used hylafax ?
z00dax
umesh: i am sure there is someone in this world who must have
be kinda sad for the project if everyone gave up and moved off
Evolution
hehehe
z00dax
hey you Evolution - i have some very dead e17 rpms that need some love sometime..
:)
Evolution
z00dax: hehe yeah. those are VERY dead. the libs have been rewritten AGAIN for e17 already...
raster needs to quit changing sh*t
he's making a sizable finishing push right now, so its probably a good rebuild time anyway.
z00dax
humm what should we do with the rpms we have ?
LuvRedheads
(Action) notices z00dax has been trying to get everyone to love
z00dax
should we have a 'deprecated' repo and just move stuff over into that ?
LuvRedheads: yeah, lets spread the love
Evolution
I'd vote toss them, unless you've got the storage to keep a 'geezer' archive.
z00dax
i dont thin storage has become an issue as yet....
s/thin/think/
LuvRedheads
geezer.centos.org ?
Evolution
nah, these are on karan.org, so it'd be geezer.centos.karan.org :-P

I know there is a fix for crazy jumpy mouse (logitech wheel mouse + KVM) in X11, but I can't remember what it is at the moment, anyone know?
I'd look in google more than I did, but it's hard to navigate with your mouse messed up
Evolution
_EdmGuy__: yes, I know there's a fix for the crazy jumpy mouse, but I can't remember what it is at the moment.
:-P
seriously thought, I can't remember...
LuvRedheads
psmouse.proto=imps
psmouse.proto=bare
somethin like that
_EdmGuy__
in sysctl.conf ?
LuvRedheads
kernel line
_EdmGuy__
k I'll search on that
psmouse_noext=1 psmouse_proto="PS/2" seems to be something else to try as well
yes those options seems to have fixed it
LuvRedheads
omg I gonna faint! ... z00dax updated the testing repo ;)
         

z00dax
LuvRedheads: rsync still running,
it should happen 48hr'ly from Monday
LuvRedheads
heh
ya .. it's not totally updated but better ;)
Dysk
I think crazy jumpy mice might be fixable with some sedatives.
Evolution
LuvRedheads: don't worry... update 4 just hit.. z00dax will be too busy for a while to update it again....
donavan
he needs to work on my fierwall as well
LuvRedheads
hmmmm
z00dax
i am on a low fierwall diet
LuvRedheads
What are you to busy with your pony ?
seanos
mmmm rhel4u4 released
donavan
it is thursday
Evolution
it's a thursday late.
LuvRedheads
note ^
Dyson_
erm... it is friday :p
Evolution
Dyson_: get back on the proper side of the pond.
quit looking ahead and cheating.
:-P
Dyson
Evolution: btw... this is quite cool. I could watch a movie in cinema on the first day and spoil you even before the movie runs in your cinema ;)
Evolution
grrrrrr
(Action) shoots Dyson
:-P
Dyson
:)
bronze
Beware the Dyson sphere of influence!
dan__t
Evolution, Apache's split-logfile.pl is broken
It will die if it sees a ! anywhere
Probably due to the way which it handles regex's
Evolution
dan__t: that explains why they don't ship it then... :-p
dan__t
Maybe :)
Dyson
.oO ( s/!/¡/g )
dan__t
haha
actually...
I'll bite. brb.
Dyson
it probably works around the issue :)
dan__t
It may.
However, I'm no good with sed.
sed -i '' " s/\!/¡/g" filename
eh?
Evolution
does it work?
dan__t
sed: can't read s/\!/¡/g: No such file or directory
i told you my sed sucks :(
erm got it :)
donavan
Dyson: we don't have premier night porn in our cinemas
LuvRedheads
where do you have them ?
donavan
I thought porn arcades went away in the 70's early 80's ?
dan__t
meh.
smooge
porn arcades?
dan__t
erm, how do I go to the last line in vi?
:G, right?
smooge
:$
or at least that is my way.. I think vi has as many ways as perl does to get something done
(Action) does the slow download of PNAELV-4.4.0 (loves how disk 5 is 81 MB in size..)
duckdown
What is the best way to completely shut down the X server and whatever X related things are running now? I've got the machine stable and its eating up most of my CPU (It's a horrible Pentium 3 550mhz)
Just want it to run console only now
smooge
you don't want to reboot?
duckdown
nope
smooge
init 3
duckdown
That will only kill X ?
smooge
sed -ie 's/id:5:/id:3:/' /etc/initttab
well it should.. but you could have services that are turned off at 3 and not at 5
duckdown
yeah that didn't do it
X is still running
smooge
in that case X would be wedged and a reboot would be in order
duckdown
darn
z00dax
init 1 ? and init 3 ?
LuvRedheads
?
dan__t
seems as if I'm running out of file descriptors.
z00dax
init 6 will surely get this sorted
duckdown
Thanks
dan__t
hi.
can I increase max file handles on the fly?
Evolution
(Action) watches apache logging bite dan__t
:-P
dan__t
Jesus, man.
This hurts heh.
Evolution
it's a sign that you have too many domains on that box :-P
dan__t
Absolutely not!
Evolution
heh
dan__t
I think I found a solution heh.
Evolution
dan__t: /proc/sys/fs/file-max
dan__t
Yes, can I change it on the fly?
Evolution
I believe so, yes.
dan__t
hrm.
Evolution
you'll also want to play with /proc/sys/fs/file-nr
I'm pretty sure you can tweak them while live, but I've never had to, so I don't know.
(and I'm not about to test here!) :-P
dan__t
write(1023, "171.37 - - [02/Aug/2006:18:13:18"..., 215) = 215
close(1023) = 0
strace catches that
if i close the logfile each time, it will work haha
smooge
z00dax: I was thinking init 0 was a better solution than 6. although I do like init 7
Evolution
init6 as a default causes my powerbill to get angry.. something about spinning up a large number of hard drives repeatedly....
LuvRedheads
hmmm
smooge
my init goes to 11
Evolution: we only recommend that as a default for loving customers
LuvRedheads
just send me those drives and the 3ware card. problem solved ;)
smooge
Evolution: sort of like when a wonderful customer wants to uninstall the software sending them a script that does a recursive rpm -e of the software
dan__t
Ok... closing the file every sequence helps.
irens
ok
evilrabbit
what could I get as a good tool for my laptop
my harddrive is like over heating like crazy
funzone
(Action) peeks in...hmm anyone home?\
evilrabbit: a hammer.... :-)
fedorared
There is no i586 kernel on the 4.3 ServerCD, correct?
evilrabbit
nice
funzone
evilrabbit: solves a lot of problems..
Dysk
evilrabbit, What do you mean by a good tool?
evilrabbit
I used to be able to shut my lid and the hard drive would automatically go into hibernate, I could have the laptop turn off at a certian level of battery, etc...
