rpcnow i can't boot the freaking box
concept10how do you configure top to only show the processes used by the logged in users only? I used to be able to see processes in use system wide
rpcit freezes on postgre
will this shit ever work as expected?
mhalldondelelcaro: Alright, so the problem I have now is the by-uuid device files are symbolic links, so they cause user-space to resolve the link to the real device sda1, then after the link flaps the device comes up at sdb1, and the attempt to remount crashes because it tries to place the new mount over the top of the old one.
dondelelcaro: so the by-uuid devices fix the issue of boot-time link flap but not runtime link flap
dondelelcaro: what piece of the puzzle am i missing? i think i need a device mapper
dondelelcaromhall: uh... if you've got things that are flapping without them being remounted, you've got a real problem.
rpcjetscreamer i have to say that your advices are useless, i just wasted 40 mins for nothing
it wasn't about the damn grub update, still getting the same error
dondelelcaromhall: alternatively, you can use the name of the devices instead of creating symlinks to them
rpcthere must be something wrong with initrd there
dondelelcaro(or use hardlinks)
mhalldondelelcaro: yeah, the link flaps, and when the device comes up again, it has the same UUID device of course but since the kernel thinks it's sdb instead of sda the kernel doesn't realize it's the same drive it was before
dondelelcaro: i heard there's some special daemon for fibre channel that maps the devices right, but i don't know what it is or how to use it.
karstenIs there anyplace in /proc to get a list of open files (or count), or do I need to run 'lsof'?
mhalldondelelcaro: i think it involved a kernel hook of some sort
dondelelcaromhall: you can still use udev to do it, just don't create symlinks; create real devices.
rpci'm f**ing remaking the damn kernel :( all because the missing initrd switch :(
of*
mhalldondelelcaro: ah ok, so i'll grep for the original rule and modify it
cwheelerhow do i get dpkg/synaptic to ignore a "broken" package?
karstencwheeler: Fix it ;-)
streunercwheeler: remove it ;-)
cwheelerits the nvidia glx package i don't have the kernel module package i had to compile it myslef
it works fine but it can't find the kernel module package which doesn't seem to exist
so i don't want to remove it and i don't know how to fix it
rpcdo you have an idea how to save another 30 mins and fix the box so i can boot off the just-prepared custom kernel? i installed it and it won't boot, telling me about missing root
mhalldondelelcaro: how might i make this into a device generating rule instead of a link generating rule: SYMLINK+="disk/by-uuid/$env{ID_FS_UUID}"
dondelelcaro: i think what i need to do is replace SYMLINK+= with NAME+=
rpcmy grub is using initrd... how can i tell it to stop doing that?
mhalldondelelcaro: but i'm not totally sure
rpc: new kernel
rpcmhall i compiled without initrd switch
i'm really confused, making blind steps
and i'm seriously tired of this
isn't there a way to reconfigure grub to skip initrd crap?
or should i just prepare one for the new kernel manually?
cwheeleryou could just compile your custom kernel with initrd even if you don't need it
that's what i did
