Note to others: That's "a 500 error" not "500 errors." :-P
Cymage
suseROCKs : hmmm, makes me wonder if the vhosts are part of the problem
suseROCKs
Cymage: according to documentation, mod_status is a server-wide directive, not applied to just vhosts.
twkm
read your error log.
suseROCKs
twkm: it doesn't show up anything in the error logs
twkm
then either you did something very bad (touched the error log while apache had it open) or very stupid (turned off error logging).
or perhaps you have multiple error logs and you aren't looking at the right one.
suseROCKs
twkm: You're making some rather gross assumptions :-)
I haven't touched the error log, It does work and I get error messages on other unrelated things which I've resolved
I believe the problem has to do with properly enabling ExtendedStatus
twkm
i believe a 500 response that isn't logged is the prime problem.

(Action) sends Geeko to help suseROCKs
suseROCKs
the syntax listed on Apache's website is quite different from that in our /etc/sysconfig/apache2 file
twkm
sysconfig is sourced by a shell script, it isn't what apache uses itself.
stuff under /etc/apache2/, in .conf files at least, is what apache uses, and those are influenced by the init script which is influenced by the sysconfig file.
but in any case, if the log level is low enough for *any* other errors to be recorded, it should also be low enough for a 500. well, anyway, you probably aren't getting your status because that .conf file isn't actually being referenced, even though the module is being loaded.
AlbertoP
maybe we should give hints IF we know them, or be silent ;-)
twkm
i'll assume that was aimed at me, even though i've provided hints. i'll probably also ignore something.
suseROCKs
I don't think I'd want my log file recording 500 errors. That'd be insane
twkm
*shrug*
AlbertoP
twkm: well I know you're trying to help, but I also know it might be annoying for others to read the same hint many times (logs) ;-)
twkm
thanks for finally being concrete.
AlbertoP
just what I think, as always :)
twkm
suseROCKs: sounds insane not to, since they are critical flaws in your configuration, but okay. since you have no log of the problem you'll probably have to manually trace the includes -- perhaps just manually edit /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/include.conf, and pray a bit nothing else changes it.
AlbertoP
just an info: on forums there is a thread about apache not loading modules
suseROCKs: here it explains how to set status stuff --> http://en.opensuse.org/Mirror_Setup_Howto
suseROCKs
AlbertoP: link me pls.

how can install amsn in opensuse 11.2?
I have a tkimage library problem
Chrysantine
felipe__: It's in the Packman repository.
bill
Problem with today's automatic updates of SuSe 11.1. Error message says: r8101-kmp-default-1.013.00_2.6.27.7_9.1-3.1.x86_64 is needed but not available. How can I get the update to complete successfully?
Chrysantine
bill: Did you receive a kernel update today?
samyak
twkm, just to update you on my hunting to have it all on HTTP... http://www.mediacollege.com/video/streaming/http.html
twkm, sadly the http streaming is not meant for live streaming ..
Chrysantine
samyak: What kind of live streaming do you want?
samyak
live audio and video streaming ..
I am currently using hosted account with Flash Media Server
Chrysantine
samyak: Yes but you didn't specify what source.
bitshuffler
bill: add the proper drivers:nic repo and be happy
Chrysantine
samyak: For example a live stream can mean a webcam or a video grabber or a tv channel or.
bitshuffler
bill: and 1.013.... is totally outdated so you might want to update all that stuff
felipe__
tks
Chrysantine
samyak: Depending on what solution you wish there are some possible solutions for you, such a mpeg4ip (mp4live from it) and Darwin Streaming Server to do the actual RTSP serving.
bill
Chrysantine: I do not believe I did, but I'm new enough with SuSe Linux that I am no sure.
samyak
Chrysantine, We are using Sony PD77 video camera
Chrysantine
samyak: Does it present itself as a Video4Linux device you can access?
bill: Sounds like you've added a repository where you installed those r8101 files but they haven't yet been updated to provide for the new kernel. (Or perhaps there is another repo that does)
samyak
Chrysantine, but at the same time we will have webcam as well to be captured if we want to have mutiple location/views to broadcast ..
Chrysantine, let me see and tell you
Chrysantine
samyak: If you have a device that works as a V4L/2 device (/dev/video) you can use mp4live and dss to stream it to clients.
bitshuffler
bill: Chrysantine again - you need to add the proper drivers:nic repo - the one you have it for 11.1 without updates so you have to add the _update one as well so you get packages for updated kernels
s/it/is/
Chrysantine
(Action) adds bitshuffler_is_a_knob repo.
bitshuffler
(Action) contains plenty of stuff ;P
samyak
Chrysantine, I would first try with my webcam for now ...
I can see /dev/video0 dev on my opensuse
Chrysantine
samyak: That's most likely your webcam then. Anyway, DSS is not 'free' as in 'free free' but 'free as in beer sorta kinda free'.
samyak
Chrysantine, ohkk ...let me check out both the options ...
Chrysantine
samyak: You might want to read up on .sdp files and how you can serve those to clients via Darwin Streaming Server.
bill
Chrysantine: Sounds about right. System monitor says I have Release 121.1, Linux 2..27.7-9-default. To rephrase, you're saying that the updates need Linux 11.2, I have Linux 11.1, so the updates cannot resolve dependencies. Do I have to download all of Linux 11.2 and update from a DVD, or is there some incremental update method I can use?
Chrysantine
samyak: Google has *lots* of help on that subject. mpeg4ip package which contains mp4live (the program that does the video capturing and compression, then streaming that via DSS) is available in the Packman repo.
bitshuffler
bill: which part of "You need to add another repo that contains the r8101 package for the updated 11.1 kernel!" don't you get?
Chrysantine
samyak: Alternatively you can use GStreamer to accomplish the same thing, grabbing the video, compressing it and then feeding that video to DSS which serves it to clients.
samyak
Chrysantine, so I will anyway say goodbye to RTMP and FMS/Red5 with mp4live and/or DSS ?
bitshuffler
bill: add http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/drivers:/nic/openSUSE_11.1_update/ and be happy.
rip
does 11.2's new encryption feature include encrypted swap partition as well? Where can I go to find out more info. about 11.2's encryption feature?
bitshuffler
rip: it's an encrypted lvm on which you can put swap as well
Chrysantine
samyak: RTMP is proprietary stuff and I don't know if oneone has successfully reverse engineered it.
twkm
adobe published their protocol.
Chrysantine
Well that solved that problem, if anyone has actually developed a client/server for it.
samyak
Red5 guys have at least come up with alternative to Flash Media Server
twkm
dss is proprietary too, which was later published. it just has somewhat better uptake in the not-just-them world.
samyak
Chrysantine, osflash.org/red5 , i guess they have reversed engineered it ... just FYI
Chrysantine
samyak: Ah ok. We didn't have a need for such solution so we built our own hacky-tacky live streaming system.
samyak
Chrysantine, how did you did it ?
twkm
vlc?
Chrysantine
samyak: We used gstreamer.
samyak
I want people to see it in their browser ...
does using gstreamer or vlc make it browser ready ?
The reason flash in video streaming is so popular is that almost all have flash plugin installed
I would check out all the options you guys have come up with
though
Chrysantine
samyak: Well we don't stream to browsers so.. our needs are different.
evilFunkyFingerz
(Action) that's an interesting project that I'ed like to try
Vojtaeus
IMHO, You need plugin to be able to use VLC or MPlayer within browser...
samyak
Chrysantine, I understand ... in my case I simply don't know what my user is ...
Vojtaeus, and asking people to download plugin is not that easy
bill
Chrysantine an bitshuffler: Sorry, I got behind in the message stream, and was answering an earlier message from Chrysantine. Remember, I don' know how things are done with Linux. So, I'll try your suggestions as well as I'm able and get back to you.
Chrysantine
samyak: A quick Google suggests the Red5 is the most popular solution for live streaming on Linux.
twkm
he needs to feed the red5 server.
Chrysantine
bill: Well the bottom line is - you installed the r8101 driver from some repository. You should look at what the repository is.
twkm: Is Red5 merely a streaming server or does it do encoding/hinting?
samyak
Chrysantine, yup, but what about feeding the data to Red5 from the place of live event ? That part is done by Flash Live Media Encoder which is not available for Linux
bitshuffler
bill: no worries. Also you have to enable "refresh" for those repos since their content changes whenever I drop a new driver in it (e.g. the r8101 one got updated to 1.014 quite some time ago).
cst
hi there
Chrysantine
samyak: There are several tools which can encode files in the fly, mp4live is one such tools - even mencoder can encode into flash on the fly from various sources (even live input). gstreamer cannot (afaik) encode flash yet.
tools/tool.
samyak
Chrysantine, mp4live will capture and encode and send it to FMS/Red5 ... that would be great !
Chrysantine
samyak: Unfortunately mp4live won't do for you because it doesn't encode flash.
samyak
ahhh :(
cst
Is the "widget on screensaver" supposed to work in kde 4.4 beta2 (opensuse 11.2 factory)? When I try to set up the widgets in the screen-saver interface all I see is an empty workspace with the background-image and an anloge clock - no means there to add any widgets
Chrysantine
samyak: As the name suggests, it's great for serving H264 video however.
samyak
Flash do have a h.264 support now !
twkm
ffmpeg can probably stream to the server.
Chrysantine
That's quite likely.

Hi all, I'm trying to enable my compose key. I've seen instructions to change this in KDE system settings under "region & language", selecting "keyboard layout" and then the advanced tab. I currently have the option selected "disable keyboard layouts", so the advanced settings are unavailable. What are the implications if I "enable keyboard layouts"?
bitshuffler
you "enable keyboard layouts"?
poorboywilly
currently selected is "disable keyboard layouts", I have to "enable keyboard layouts" to get to the advanced settings, but what will this do? Anything I should know about?
bitshuffler
no
in case the world suddenly stops to spin you can disable it again anyways
ukwiz
after upgrading to 11.2, I seem to have lost my system sounds. Where are they configured?
poorboywilly
I suppose that is true, but I like to keep my system lean and not use something if it isn't necessary
ukwiz: kde or gnome?
rhorse
ukwiz: /usr/share/sounds look ok?
ihuerti
Kde SC 4.4 Beta 2 Really rocks! perhaps i should not say this: but it feels really stable
ukwiz
poorboywilly: on kde.
rhorse: It is the configuring that is the problem. None of the system sounds happen
Chrysantine
ukwiz: System sounds or sound in general? Amarok, smplayer etc?
eviltoaster_3e
how do i read or write to the serial port? (USB to SERIAL - servo controller)
ukwiz
Chrysantine: no problem with sounds in general
Chrysantine
ukwiz: alt+f2 / multimedia and check what Notifications output device is set to
twkm
eviltoaster_3e: as you would with "normal" serial ports, though the device names will be slightly different.
eviltoaster_3e
twkm, i dont know how to do that, thats why i ask :)
twkm, any sites i can read up on
?
twkm
what are you trying to 'write" to the serial port?
eviltoaster_3e
numbers
rhorse
can you boot a kernel on a usb from a bootloader on an (IDE) drive?
twkm
so, something is plugged into a usb serial dongle, and it reads numbers. thrilling.
well, good luck.
ukwiz
Chrysantine: I can test notifications there, but it doesn't seem to translate to anything such as system startup and shutdown
eviltoaster_3e
twkm, servo controller controlls servos .... and thay need uc need numbers :P
rhorse
do all bioses support?
sekisushai
hello i've a prob with networking : i've a internet box : 192.168.0.254, a computer with two plugs : the first : 192.168.0.1 linked to the internet box, the second 192.168.1.1 that i would use to share the internet connection
i've configure a dhcp server to give ip 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254 to computer connecting to the plug 192.168.1.1
twkm
eviltoaster_3e: perhaps all you want is echo, as in ... echo 1234 > /dev/whatever
sekisushai
i activate the ip forwading in network settings
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Check your firewall
sekisushai
when i plug a computer to 192.168.1.1 it can't access to internet
firewall is disabled for the moment..
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Yast Firewall and put the internal network in the Internal Zone
sekisushai
that's ok
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Verify if ip_forward is enabled, by cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
sekisushai
return 1
twkm
sekisushai: for the yast masquerading configuration to work the firewall must be enabled.
sekisushai
so it's ok
it's now enabled
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: YOur fine now?
sekisushai
now i configure dhcp server :
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: And another thing, you need DNS server
sekisushai
card 192.168.1.1 (the free plug)
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Or set it it to issue a real dns server ip
sekisushai
ip dns i've took those which are in /etc/resolv.conf
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Yes on the Router/Server and configure DHCP to issue those to the client
sekisushai
gateway which ip to set ? 192.168.0.1 (plug which receive internet connection) or 192.168.1.1 (plug wich is free and available to share the connection) ?
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Gateway ip should be set to an ip that doesn't conflict with the other card ip
sekisushai
ok so i set a random ip but not 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 ?
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: Gateway = 192.169.1.1 --- eg. randome ip 192.168.1.2 and so on
sekisushai
ok thanks it work now :)
thank u a lot
evilFunkyFingerz
sekisushai: no problem

Chrysantine, bitshuffler: Problem solved. I followed your general advice and updated all my registries using YaST/Software Repositories, than applied all updates using YaST Online Update. I'm still at release 11.1, and all updates were successfully applied. Thanks!, then used
trevor
im using the live cd, but before i install i need to know two things about KDE
first is there anyway to change the cursor to a more traditional mouse cursor rather than this obsidian version
Vojtaeus
<trevor> In settings, of course
trevor
is that in configure desktop?? sorry im coming from a couple years of Gnome use
Chrysantine
trevor: alt+f2 and type mouse
trevor
oh nice thanks
Chrysantine
trevor: Learn to use alt+f2 (or remap it to something else) and you won't go back :P
Vojtaeus
Yes! :-)
Chrysantine
Bound it to cmd+space myself.
trevor
also, does PPPoE work right away, in ubuntu, sabayon, and mandriva, their new iterations broke PPPoE for me
Chrysantine
No idea about that one.
trevor
omh just changed the mouse cursor and it is SO much better
