02:37 <ec> anyone?

02:37 <MTughan> Hello.

02:37 <ec> hi

02:38 <MTughan> BOINC question?

02:38 <ec> had an account question relating to boinc

02:39 <ec> i've an account on boinc for some time and have been trying to recover my password

02:39 <ec> but the system doesn't seem to find my information

02:40 <ec> and i'm not sure what to do

02:40 <MTughan> What project?

02:40 <Romulus> It has been said that What project are we talking about, MTughan

02:40 <MTughan> Ignore Romulus...

02:41 <ec> the only project i've been working on is seti@home

02:41 <MTughan> What was your username? ec?

02:41 <ec> echristi

02:42 <MTughan> Your account is still there...

02:42 <Romulus> <> (at

02:43 <MTughan> Do you still have and know the email address you signed up with then?

02:44 <ec> i do....been having some accessing my email with it thought.....sent an email from another email account to the administrators under the original email about that

02:45 <MTughan> Have you tried getting in with this?

02:45 <Romulus> Title: Forgot your p!@#word? (at

02:46 <ec> i got a new computer recently....but didn't get the authenticator information from the old one

02:46 <MTughan> No, the top option, with the email address.

02:48 <ec> don't mean to ask a dumb question, but should i use the original email address i used or should i use a different email address

02:48 <ec> the original email address i don't have access to at the moment

02:48 <MTughan> The original email address, the one that you would've used before.

02:49 <MTughan> If you're not able to use it at all, you'd have to talk to the S@H administrators (I don't know who that is) and get them to reset your password, or create a new account. You said you don't have the authenticator from BOINC, right?

02:50 <ec> no, i don't unfortunately

02:51 <ec> i entered the original email address and the it says that instructions were sent to the address

02:51 <MTughan> Yep, so there's nothing you can do to get to your account. One of the administrators could possibly reset your account (I don't work with the server side, so I can't tell you conclusively), or you could create a new account.

02:51 <MTughan> Oh, can you get email from your original address?

02:54 <ec> i can, but have been having account problems.....hoping to get it resolved soon

02:54 <Soul_keeper> i won the battle with my truck

02:54 <MTughan> Because if you can get to the email account, you can get/reset your password, and then change the email address.

02:55 <ec> ok....if that doesn't work then is there a #seti channel here on freenode?

02:56 <MTughan> Not that I know of.

02:56 <ec> ok

19:33 <PovAddict> I turned the printer on, the system auto-detected it and it worked out-of-the-box... for *local* printing

19:34 <PovAddict> and the printer name indeed shows as CUPS:Stylus_C65

19:34 <xcamel> bingo..

19:34 <xcamel> and you were convinced I was just plain stupid.

19:34 <PovAddict> lol no I wasn't :P

19:35 <PovAddict> so far Linux has given me less trouble with hardware than Windows...

19:36 <PovAddict> no "insert driver CD" or anything... the printer was ready to use (drivers set up, cups configured, etc) ten seconds after the system saw it for the first time

19:36 <PovAddict> the scanner was listed in Kooka list right after I plugged it in

19:36 <PovAddict> (I had huge troubles with the scanner on Windows)

19:36 <CoderForLife> if you're stupid, it's in a very educated, world-wise way

19:37 <xcamel> use the Tux, Luke.

19:37 <PovAddict> now I just gotta RTFM and see if I can set up the printer for network use

19:37 <CoderForLife> you can maybe use Samba

19:37 <xcamel> iirc, the stylus has a built in ip addy

19:37 <CoderForLife> just guessing

19:37 <PovAddict> it's a USB printer

19:38 <CoderForLife> ip addy not

19:38 <PovAddict> yeah, I'll have to use Samba for it to work from Windows...

19:38 <Romulus> 3:00 8550 kbps dn, 731 up, 67ms ping

19:39 <xcamel> you'd need the cups server running, and allow access to the port is lists in the setup

19:39 <xcamel> but it will work...

22:34 <MTughan> gonna crunch it then?

22:35 <Didactylos> Of course. We work on all the WCG projects.

22:36 <MTughan> I should enable WCG again too... Even when I had my laptop, I hadn't crunched for a while.

22:40 <PovAddict> I have been looking into the crypt code some more

22:40 <MTughan> Shut down, gonna sandbox it.

22:41 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

22:41 <PovAddict> Didactylos: there are still open tickets with milestone 5.10

22:41 <MTughan> In my case, I don't need a command line, just GUI tools.

22:42 <Didactylos> KathrynM: are you okay putting ca-bundle in the right place?

22:42 <KathrynM> sure

22:42 <KathrynM> I've gotten over most of my fears

22:42 <KathrynM> I'll also shoot an email to Eric about it.  The directions should be modified

22:42 <Didactylos> I tried to set up sandboxing manually, once. I gave up.

22:43 <Didactylos> Mind you, I didn't have Eric's instructions then.

22:43 <PovAddict> <- can anyone confirm this fixed in 6.x?

22:44 <KathrynM> I'll put it on my todo list to check out Didactylos

22:45 <Didactylos> You mean PovAddict?

22:45 <KathrynM> yeah.  SOrry

22:46 <KathrynM> Didactylos, where dose the ca-bundle go?

22:46 <KathrynM> errr does

22:46 <Didactylos> Hahahah*blort*ha*gasp*

22:46 <Didactylos> Depends.

22:47 <Didactylos> Try the data directory or working directory.

22:47 <PovAddict> prepare the necessary sacrifices and put it in the BOINC data dir

22:47 <PovAddict> and then it *might*... *not* fail

22:48 <Didactylos> Or (my favourite method, now) link dynamically to curl, and you don't need it at all.

22:49 <KathrynM> gee thanks :)

22:49 <PovAddict> I found a .crt in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

22:49 <PovAddict> probably what the dynamic libcurl uses

22:49 <PovAddict> (on ubuntu)

22:49 <Didactylos> Should be.

22:50 <KathrynM> /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

22:50 <KathrynM> /usr/share/apps/kssl/ca-bundle.crt

22:50 <KathrynM> that's what locate tells me

22:50 <PovAddict> oh there's a few dozen separate files in /usr/share/ca-certificates/ too

22:50 <PovAddict> KathrynM: locate *.crt

22:50 <PovAddict> oh wait... BOINC on Ubuntu bundles its own .crt too <.<

22:50 <KathrynM> that's what I did

22:51 <PovAddict> I have a /var/lib/boinc-client/ca-bundle.crt too

22:51 <KathrynM> yeah, but you installed from the package manager, no?

22:51 <KathrynM> I didn't.

22:51 <PovAddict> yup

22:51 *** Celelibi has quit IRC

22:51 <PovAddict> it's just strange the Ubuntu package comes with one instead of using the system-wide certificates

22:52 <KathrynM> talk to Frank.  He manages the Ubuntu stuff, right?

22:52 <PovAddict> I tried kboincspy

22:52 <KathrynM> I'll shoot that email to Eric just as soon as I finish my lunch.  See what he has to say.  I haven't bugged him much lately :)

22:52 <PovAddict> the GUI is confusing as hell

22:55 <Didactylos> I've seen screenshots.

22:55 <Didactylos> Didn't look so bad to me - just pointless.

22:56 <PovAddict> took me a few minutes to figure out what i was supposed to enter in "URL" when adding a computer

22:56 <PovAddict> turned out to be the path to client_state.xml

22:56 <KathrynM> I tried it.  But I never got into it.

22:56 <PovAddict> not sure what for, since it *also* uses GUIRPCs :/

22:56 <KathrynM> Just easier to set up the gui_rpc stuff with the official manager.

22:57 <MTughan> Yay, seems sandboxing is at least functional.

22:57 <PovAddict> <- devs didn't even notice the ticket existance it seems

23:08 <MTughan> I tried to make myself a part of the sandbox group so I can access and modify the files, but it's not working.

23:08 <KathrynM> I used the GUI.

23:08 <KathrynM> I'm lazy like that :)

23:10 <MTughan> That's what I did, but it's not working.

23:10 <MTughan> And I found the file, /etc/group, and that looks correct.

23:11 <KathrynM> check that the directory containing the files has an x in it's permissions

23:11 <MTughan> But I'm still being denied access... Permissions are correct.

23:11 <MTughan> KathrynM: It's 0770.

23:11 <MTughan> rwxrwx---

23:11 <KathrynM> the directory or the file?

23:11 <MTughan> Both.

23:11 <KathrynM> I'm out of ideas :)

23:12 <MTughan> The problem seems to occur trying to change into the home folder. Permissions are right there too.

23:12 <Didactylos> I don't really understand Unix-style permissions. They are so limited, but endlessly difficult to set up.

23:13 <Didactylos> Give me an ACL any day :-)

23:13 <PovAddict> back

23:14 <MTughan> Actually, it could be something like that... Could an ACL prevent me access to another user's home folder, despite permissions?

23:14 <PovAddict> Linux doesn't have with ACL system unless you explicitly set it up, afaik

23:14 <MTughan> Well, this is sort of like Red Hat.

23:15 <MTughan> [mtughan@michaelfedora home]$ cd boinc_master/

23:15 <MTughan> I am a member of boinc_project.

23:16 <PovAddict> you might need to relogin (at least close the shell and open it again) for that to take effect

23:16 <PovAddict> run the 'id' command

23:16 <MTughan> This was a new shell, but I'll check.

23:16 <MTughan> Yep... "uid=500(mtughan) gid=500(mtughan) groups=500(mtughan)"

23:17 <PovAddict> and how did you edit /etc/group?

23:17 <MTughan> Would I have to close all previous shells, or just open a new one?

23:17 <MTughan> I used a GUI tool.

23:17 <MTughan> system-config-users

23:17 <PovAddict> grep boinc_project /etc/group

23:18 <MTughan> I already checked that. "boinc_project:x:502:boinc_master,mtughan"

23:19 <BadBarbarian> i have a question have eather of you ever used dd-wrt

23:19 <MTughan> Hmm... I closed all shells and opened a new one, even though I shouldn't have to do that. Still the old permissions.

23:20 <Soul_keeper> star trek is the best :)

23:20 <MTughan> WTF?!

23:20 <MTughan> id shows just mtughan group.

23:20 <MTughan> id mtughan shows both!

23:21 <KathrynM> I have no idea MTughan

23:21 <MTughan> I wouldn't expect you to. :P

23:21 <PovAddict> lemme test

23:21 <KathrynM> But thanks for reminding me.  I had forgot to chmod 770 thta directory.

23:21 * KathrynM is very happy being a LInux moron.

23:22 <PovAddict> MTughan: I do think you need to re-login

23:22 <KathrynM> I've also discovered that McCol is not a generic Korean version of pepsi.

23:22 <KathrynM> It's some rice soda that just looks like cola.

23:22 <PovAddict> which would involve restarting X

23:22 <PovAddict> but...

23:22 <MTughan> You mean from the login screen?

23:22 <PovAddict> try "su mtughan"

23:22 <MTughan> Works...

23:23 <MTughan> Yep, all permissions work as expected.

23:23 <MTughan> So it is using a preexisting shell session then?

23:23 <PovAddict> when you open a console, you aren't logging in again

23:24 <MTughan> It did on Mac.

23:24 <MTughan> That is a Unix too though...

23:24 <PovAddict> group info etc is inherited from the parent process... parent process is the menu you used to start the console :) and that menu inherited that info from... whatever started it

23:25 <MTughan> One sec...

23:25 <MTughan> init[5] -> gnome-terminal -> bash

23:25 <PovAddict> then its parent died

23:26 <MTughan> Everything seems to be under one of two processes: kthreadd or init[5].

23:26 <Romulus> back in in the rain.

23:26 <PovAddict> init is in charge of all orphans

23:27 <PovAddict> strange, my process tree is more interesting than yours

23:28 <PovAddict> kdeinit -> sh compiz -> compiz.real -> sh -c compiz-decorator -> sh compiz-decorator -> emerald

23:37 <MTughan> Cool... So does stuff in /etc/init.d get started automatically?

23:39 <Didactylos> If it's enabled, yes.

23:39 <MTughan> If what is enabled?

23:39 <PovAddict> not really

23:39 <PovAddict> stuff in /etc/rc*.d/ is started automatically

23:39 <PovAddict> (which has symlinks into /etc/init.d files :P)

23:39 <KathrynM> damn it PovAddict, you beat me to it.

23:40 <KathrynM> on that note, I'll go back to work and watch the kids play outside :)
