08:07 <PovAdct_w> "to everyone who's still on dec 31, GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!"

08:08 <KathrynM> lol

08:08 <PovAdct_w> I used to have a Windows update for IE7 that wouldn't install

08:09 <PovAdct_w> I install it, seems to succeed, the message goes away

08:09 <PovAdct_w> next day the same update appears as available again

08:09 <PovAdct_w> not anymore

08:09 <PovAdct_w> ...

08:09 <PovAdct_w> now I have TWO updates in that state

08:09 <KathrynM> I had one of those

08:09 <PovAdct_w> both IE7

08:09 <KathrynM> Can you get the stand alone installer from MS?

08:09 <KathrynM> I think that's what I ended up doing.

08:10 <KathrynM> That and snoozing BOINC

08:10 <PovAdct_w> I seriously gotta install WSUS here...

08:10 <xcamel> mornin

08:11 <KathrynM> mronin x

08:11 <KathrynM> how are the animals?

08:13 <xcamel> getting snowed on..

08:14 <xcamel> feeling any better?

08:14 <KathrynM> eh

08:14 <KathrynM> got another 3 days of meds from the doc today

08:14 <KathrynM> speaking of which, gotta take 'em

08:35 <CoderForANewYear> morning wdsmia_w

08:35 * wdsmia_w needs Coffee

08:35 <CoderForANewYear> sorry about the _w, wdsmia_w

08:35 <KathrynM> OK.  Choked down my meds and some yogurt.

08:35 <KathrynM> Gonna read for a bit.

08:36 <KathrynM> If I'm up at midnight, I'll pop in.

08:36 <CoderForANewYear> bbiab

08:43 <xcamel> gots coffee

08:44 <xcamel> lots of static snow atm.

08:52 *** PovAdct_w has quit IRC

09:08 <CoderForANewYear> some light snow flurries to the west

09:09 *** PovAdct_w has joined #boinc

09:10 <CoderForANewYear> wb PovAdct_w

09:11 <CoderForANewYear> Happy New Year soon

09:11 <PovAdct_w> happy new ears

09:11 * CoderForANewYear listens carefully

09:11 <xcamel> I'm more inclined to say "CRAPPY OLD YEAR!"

09:11 <CoderForANewYear> I'll drink to that

09:12 <CoderForANewYear> I'm all for a new year

09:14 * CoderForANewYear <---

09:18 *** waynerr has joined #boinc

09:21 <waynerr> hey anyone here with some experience on the boinc_cmd tool ?

09:22 <waynerr> i allways get the same error, doesnt matter which command i run, i have no idea why and not found what the error msg mean

09:22 <waynerr> Authorization failure: -155

09:22 <xcamel> -155?

09:22 <Romulus> I guess -155 is not that kind of authentication error, xcamel

09:22 <PovAdct_w> lol

09:22 <xcamel> start boinc as ./boinc -no_gui_rpc

09:22 <PovAdct_w> ...then boinccmd won't work at all

09:22 <xcamel> oh.. he wants it to work????

09:23 <xcamel> why would anyone want that?

09:23 <waynerr> so i will have to use x to configure the boinc client ?

09:23 <xcamel> unless your using FC9 or 10

09:23 <waynerr> fc9

09:23 <PovAdct_w> waynerr: if you use no_gui_rpc, the graphical manager won't work either, you'll have no way to control it

09:24 <xcamel> "screwed"

09:24 * xcamel notes I'm just being negative atm...

09:26 <waynerr> i can start x when i next time add a monitor, mouse and keyboard for small maintenance, will try it then with the graphical manager

09:26 <xcamel> if they would just get the BM working, and stop fussing with CUDA and BOODAH and FUBAR...

09:26 <waynerr> thanks anyway and a nice new year party :)

09:26 <xcamel> waynerr... the graphics don't seem to work in FC9

09:32 <xcamel> Nic >> [error] GUI RPC bind to port 47226 failed: 98 gstate.init() failed: -180

09:32 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

09:32 <xcamel> is the general error (still)

09:33 <PovAdct_w> &boincerr -180

09:33 <Romulus> PovAdct_w: bind() failed

09:33 <PovAdct_w> usually means client is already running

09:33 <PovAdct_w> or something else using that port

09:33 <xcamel> nope, and nope

09:34 <PovAdct_w> you manually set it to port 47226?

09:34 <PovAdct_w> netstat -ntpl | grep :47226

09:38 <xcamel> fixed it

09:39 <xcamel> dead rpc process

09:40 <xcamel> on that port

09:40 <PovAdct_w> netstat -l is a useful thing :)

09:41 <xcamel> iftop is pretty cool too

09:41 <PovAdct_w> yup

09:41 <xcamel> especially to find probes that need terminating

09:42 <xcamel> now.. if somebody got really creative....

09:42 <PovAdct_w> running iftop on a gateway/router/firewall is awesome, you'd see connectiosn from all machines on the LAN

09:43 <xcamel> if top in a tiny xgui window, where you could click on and get the info on a particular IP working, and terminate it via an iptables entry in real time...

09:44 <xcamel> just a simple 'right click' with terminate/ok

09:44 <PovAdct_w> I'd try but I don't understand iptables myself :D

09:45 <xcamel> or any 'instant' network termination disconnect command

09:45 <xcamel> that would be a 'killer app'" level program for linux

09:47 <xcamel> realtime hacker kill programs are very hard to come by, and mostly too complicated.

10:00 <CoderForANewYear> Happy New Year, KathrynM and the rest of South Korea

10:29 *** suprcaml has joined #boinc

10:29 <CoderForANewYear> I don't seem to have iftop on CentOS

10:29 <suprcaml> Sysinfo for '': Linux running KDE 4.1.2 (KDE 4.1.2), CPU: Dual Core AMD Opteron 280 at 2412 MHz (4823 bogomips), HD: 18/575GB, RAM: 1422/2786MB, 156 proc's, 13.18d up

10:30 * suprcaml waves from here...

10:30 <PovAdct_w> CoderForANewYear: not a std tool, search it on yum

10:30 * CoderForANewYear waves to suprcaml

10:30 <CoderForANewYear> I did yum install iftop and came up with nothing

10:31 <CoderForANewYear> it's not giftopnm is it?

10:31 <PovAdct_w>

10:31 <Romulus> Title: iftop: display bandwidth usage on an interface (at

10:32 <suprcaml> does this mean anything?

10:32 <suprcaml> [error] bad value -1.000000 of time stats connected_frac; ignoring

10:33 <suprcaml> [error] bad value -1.000000 of time stats active_frac; ignoring

10:33 <PovAdct_w> hmm

10:33 <PovAdct_w> if it gets ignored should get saved as a good value next time

10:33 <PovAdct_w> resetting to 1.0

10:33 <suprcaml> The program 'boincmgr' received an X Window System error.

10:33 <suprcaml> This probably reflects a bug in the program.

10:33 <suprcaml> The error was 'BadName (named color or font does not exist)'.

10:34 <suprcaml> seems that should be easy to fix..

10:35 <PovAdct_w> I can't believe a missing font makes the program fail and crash instead of showing a default font, even if ugly

10:36 <suprcaml> font or color..

10:36 <KathrynM> PovAdct_w, this *is* BOINC we're talking about.

10:36 <suprcaml> rest of very verbose error..

10:36 <suprcaml> (Details: serial 611 error_code 15 request_code 45 minor_code 0)

10:36 <suprcaml>   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;

10:36 <KathrynM> Nothing surprises me anymore

10:36 <suprcaml>    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.

10:36 <suprcaml>    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line

10:36 <suprcaml>    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful

10:36 <suprcaml>    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

10:43 * CoderForANewYear runs iftop for the first time

10:45 <xcamel> there are some real possibilities there...

10:45 *** suprcaml has left #boinc

10:46 <CoderForANewYear> needs some curses work

10:46 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

10:48 <CoderForANewYear> very interesting

10:49 <CoderForANewYear> I had to yum install libpcap-devel and then compile iftop

10:51 <xcamel> my idea would be that the ip's in the display would change color based on the traffic load - green yellow or red, with the ability to set system ip's to black (as in ignore)

10:51 <CoderForANewYear> no sweat

10:52 <CoderForANewYear> hmm

10:52 <CoderForANewYear> system IP's meaning local LAN?

10:53 <xcamel> that and ones that are allowed traffic by the user like nntp, and boinc irc etc.

10:53 <xcamel> it would take a little while to get it configured correctly

10:54 <xcamel> aka a list of 'known' IP's

12:18 <xcamel> snow stopped, maybe I'll get the driveway done before the wind starts howling...

12:19 <xcamel> lunch first though...

12:19 <CoderForANewYear> it's good to have priorities

12:29 <xcamel> yummy

12:37 <CoderForANewYear> excellent

12:37 <PovAddict> mmm

12:37 <PovAddict> lunch

12:45 <Rookie_69> I really won't mind if you keep all that snow, Jay... Please!

12:46 <Rookie_69> Looks like I get Jay's leftovers... again.

12:47 <CoderForANewYear> are leftovers better than rejects?

12:49 <Rookie_69> Improperly formed snowflakes... Hmm.

12:54 <Rookie_69> If you could reject a snowstorm, I'd reject them all.

12:57 <Rookie_69> I brought a couple of batteries in from the van to top up the charge just in case the snow is salty again and we lose power.

13:47 <Rookie_69> K.

13:49 <old511> I have some lidican patches that that are working the first procidure is to inject lidicion in the nerve roots and if that works then they are going for the burn

13:49 <Rookie_69> Soldering gun and good aim might be cheaper ;-)

13:50 <old511> am going to be back and forth between snail and the board K

13:50 <Rookie_69> K.
