urielvigilant......then sudo reboot.,. then guess , now YESSS DVD working perffectly ! Thank you very much! HAVe a nice nice Weekend.00:13

urielvigilantToday afternoon i was in a friend home, trying to install Lubuntu 13.10 on a ACer 3003 wmli with 1GB ram, from an USb persistent pen drive, but after a few minutes i can reached to the menu : chose to  try or full install. I T staus black screen for a second and all black with mouse pointer in another second . . What could be the cause ?00:18
PalssonWatch the world first PS4 stream at twitch[dot]com[slash]Palsson12300:19
stluurielvigilant: I have seen that black screen when there were errors loading the GUI -- could the USB stick be partially corrupt?00:20
stluDoes anyone know if such a program exists to view/edit a mysql database in the terminal?  I am thinking of an interface similar to ms-dos lotus123 spreadsheet tool.00:24
urielvigilantSTU do you think so ? I tryed one usb with Lubuntu 13.10 and another Ubuntu 13.10 booth persisten mode,  that actually runs perfectly on my ACer 5204 Wlmi with 2bGB rams00:25
urielvigilantSTU do you think so ? I tryed one usb with Lubuntu 13.10 and another Ubuntu 13.10 booth persisten mode,  that actually runs perfectly on my ACer 5204 Wlmi with 2bGB rams00:25
urielvigilantstlu ; sorry00:25
Ben64stlu: why not "mysql" ?00:25
stluben64: because 'mysql' is like 'mail' compared to 'alpine'.  I'm just not ready for it, I need a little GUI00:26
ikoniawhy not use a proper gui and just connect remotely00:26
ikoniaor learn to use the mysql shell properlyt00:27
ikoniaas you'll waste more time looking for a tool that won't teach you anything or provide any real use outside of your current moment00:27
urielvigilantstlu : i remeber now that the acer 3003 , was with windows xp and updating and i interrupted it with out vist update complete  , to boot from usb, Do you think that could be the cause ?00:27
maokaiiBen64: im having a hard time figuring out how to connect to someone's ubuntu system from my computer. I understand I need their IP  and I need to download the client on my computer00:28
maokaiinot sure what else to do00:28
stluikonia: thanks for your advice then.  I'll just throw up a post on the forums and use a X program00:28
stluI'm still curious if one exists even if I won't use it.00:28
ikoniawhy ?00:28
ikoniaif you're not going to use it, what does it matter, why waste yours/others time00:28
stluurielvigilant:  the state of the windows partition could affect the installation, yes.  The mount program can tell if the NTFS partition is unclean.00:29
urielvigilantstly : should i try an antique version, like Ubuntu or Lubuntu 12. 04 ?00:29
urielvigilantstlu : should i try an antique version, like Ubuntu or Lubuntu 12. 04 ?00:30
stluikonia: because there may be quick uses that would save me the time of installing a gui client, such as, using putty on a windows box.00:30
urielvigilantstlu  : ok then i should back there and try again, now after windows update finished00:30
ikoniastlu: missing the point a bit there,00:30
stluurielvigilant: It is worth a try, but it makes no difference if both installers have problems with a corrupt ntfs partition, especially if you are trying to resize  it.00:31
Ben64maokaii: server needs to be running on the one you want to connect to, you need to forward necessary port(s) and you need the client on the one you want to connect from00:31
stluikonia: no, i'm not.  I know I could use the00:31
maokaiiBen64:  no easier method?00:31
ikoniastlu: but you just said "I won't use it"....00:31
stluikonia: no, i'm not.  I know I could use the 'mysql' binary from putty, *if* I learned to use it.00:32
urielvigilantstlu : installer is an normal usb drive pen persisten 4 GB00:32
Ben64maokaii: it's pretty easy00:32
urielvigilantthey run perfectly almost fast as in my herdrive in my laptop00:32
stluikonia: if you don't have an answer, then don't waste our time further.  I might use it infrequently, but no point debating the frequency of a program that isn't even known to exist!00:33
=== theleft__ is now known as theleft
ikoniastlu: I don't really care if you use it or not, I've given you my answer, it's up to you what you do with it, however as even a terminal client will need to connect over a network/loopback address, you may as well just use your client properly and connect remotly than waste time looking for a limited functionality application00:34

sventonhi all, I have difficulties to understand how user permissions and account security work. For example if I have two accounts on my machine and run "su name_of_other_acount" I will be promt to give a password for the the other user. Does this not mean that I just can write a script that try all possible password combinations ?00:36
ikoniasventon: that's called "brute force" you can of course write a script to do that00:36
reisiosventon: yes if you don't mind waiting potentially longer than a human life span to get it00:36
geekmasterflashsventon: That could potentially take thousands of years depending on complexity of passwords.00:37
stlusventon: there are built-in time delays that would make things slow down and be hard to crack.00:37
reisioplus there's nothing stopping a system from having a denial system set up00:37
reisioto only give you a few opportunities00:37
stlualso, if I recall, Ubuntu doesn't allow use of 'su' without sudo priviliges anyway, while debian does allow it.00:38
Simi99I'm dual booting ubuntu and windows 8. On Ubuntu, I can acces my windows files on my OS hard drive/users/etc... Is there anyway I can have them directly on my personal folders? I'm using seperate HDD if it's any help! Thank you:)00:39
ikoniayou can use su without sudo00:39
reisioSimi99: which folders?00:40
BeldarSimi99, You want to be careful with changing the file system on windows your best having a shared partition.00:40
Simi99My main folders: Music, Videos, etc.00:40
reisioSimi99: you want those folders to always be your Windows drive data, or just contain additionally that data?00:41
Random832ikonia: he doesn't mean you have to literally use sudo, he means you have to be in the admin group00:41
stluoh, my bad.  I could have sworn there was a system that blocked su, maybe it was modified.00:41
Ben64Simi99: what exactly do you mean by having them "directly on my personal folders" ?00:41
stlubye though00:41
reisioSimi99: the simple way is with a symlink: ln -s /mnt/windows/wherever ~/WindowsShoobity00:41
ikoniaRandom832: you don't have to be in the admin group to use su00:41
ones#join cpp00:42
DanatoWindowsShoobity? lol00:42
Simi99symlink looks like something  that would work! Can you tell me a little more?00:42
friday_how add radio k-love: http://www.klove.com/listen/player.aspx in rhythmbox?00:43
Danatothats basically creating a shortcut to wherever you want00:43
Simi99What I need is a link between my documents, music, videos, etc. on ubuntu and those same folders on windows so that I can access any files on any OS00:44
FlurglerHobbitHey all. Is there a way to automatically mount external hd's after the computer has booted?00:44
geekmasterflashSimi99: I'd recommend a symbolic link00:44
geekmasterflashSimi99: That way you can avoid changing the file system on windows00:44
geekmasterflashSimi99: Which tends to hate that.00:45
Danatofriday_: it worked fine for me, jst click on radio, theres a add tab00:45
reisioFlurglerHobbit: so many ways00:45
reisioFlurglerHobbit: why not use /etc/fstab00:45
FlurglerHobbitreisio: which way do you recommend?00:45
friday_Danato, i want add in rhythmbox00:45
reisioFlurglerHobbit: lsblk -f will give you the information to put in there00:45
reisioFlurglerHobbit: or 'mount' after auto-mounting00:45
Simi99thanks geekmaster I'll try that00:45
Danatofriday_: yes open rythmbox, on the library bar, left side, theres Radio, click on it and theres a list of radios, click on add tab and paste your link there00:46
FlurglerHobbitreisio: is there a simpler way? I seem to be doing something wrong00:46
Danatofriday_: im listening to the radio you showed on rhytmbox right now00:47
reisioFlurglerHobbit: doing it right? :)00:47
FlurglerHobbitreisio: I do nothing right.00:47
reisioFlurglerHobbit: :) what are your drives' named?00:47

reisioFlurglerHobbit: know which ones are the ones you want to add?00:49
Beldarmcl0vin, Install xfce4 ans choose it from the login dropdown, no need to disable unity.00:49
Obama911Use Unity and like it.00:50
FlurglerHobbitreisio: Is there a way I can find out what the HD's are actually named? Because I didn't name any of them like this. So I honestly don't know which is which00:50
FlurglerHobbitI guess I should try sdb1,sdc100:50
Obama911Try KDE.00:50
reisioFlurglerHobbit: lsblk -f would say00:51
sventonreisio: stlu mentioned that "there are built-in time delays that would make things slow down and be hard to crack" regarding brutal force a account00:51
mcl0vinBeldar: yes i did install xfce light00:51
Obama911KDE looks better than XFCE.00:51
FlurglerHobbitreisio: Then I am afraid they don't have names?00:51
reisioFlurglerHobbit: ah, what distro are you using?00:52
piccahow is KDE 4 these days .. last time i used it was KDE 3.54 or something00:52

Beldarmcl0vin, not sure there.01:01
Boneheads1999So I still have the same problem.. When I click "buy..." on a program in Ubuntu software center, it loads up the Ubuntu One login.  I have an ubuntu one account and am glad to log in, except the page has no text. just boxes and squares and the ubuntu one logo.01:09
reisioBoneheads1999: no doubt a bug covered on launchpad.net01:10
mcl0vinwhen you first access xfce it ask you if you want to use blank template or already made one. how can i bring that question again01:11
Boneheads1999reisio so what can I do01:11
pinPointhey I have an issue with installing... http://pastebin.com/GCakEYQ901:11
bekkspinPoint: Well, ask the PPA maintainer please.01:12
Boneheads1999I mean this is ridiculous.  All I want to do is "buy" minitube (minitube-ubuntu).  Except I have to pay money.  That amount is $0.00.  I should be able to install it for free..01:12
reisioBoneheads1999: find its listing on launchpad, do whatever's said to fix it01:12
pfifopinPoint: please dont use pastebin.com01:12
topper4125I have a MotherBoard that will run IDE drives just fine, but it won't recognize SATA at all (one of my SATA Drives when plugged in got too hot to touch after about 20 seconds, and is now a paperweight)... I'm guessing just replace the mothboard, or go with just the biggest HDD i can find for IDE, and just live with it (which is about 320GB after a bit of searching)... Both 'fixes' are about the same price... what idea do you think is be01:12
pinPointpfifo: why, whats wrong with it?01:13
xanguaBoneheads1999: you just have to log in with an ubuntu one account01:13
reisioBoneheads1999: hit CTRL+ALT+t, type 'sudo apt-get install minitube'01:13
xanguaBoneheads1999: if you have a launchpad or ubuntu forums account you have one01:13
Boneheads1999xangua: I have an ubuntu one account.  But I have no idea what to enter in because there's no text01:13
kostkonBoneheads1999, try reinstalling usc01:14
pfifopinPoint: ads, poor support for pasted text, other stuff01:14
Boneheads1999kostkon how do I do that? (sorry for the dumb question)01:14
Ben64Boneheads1999: sudo apt-get install minitube?01:14
FuuqUmisthey guys, i got it working!01:14
topper4125!yay | FuuqUmist01:14
ubottuFuuqUmist: Glad you made it! :-)01:15
pfifoBoneheads1999: cant you figure out which one is username and which one is password and work around this?01:15
minimecpinPoint: You seem to have added an additional source 'debphp.org', and that one seems to conflict with the packages from the precise sources repository.01:15
FuuqUmisti used this to fix my source list http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/01:15
minimecpinPoint: I would remove that source...01:15
pinPointminimec: the new source? I want 2.4.601:16
xanguaBoneheads1999: just hit buy and you are directed to ubuntu one login01:16
pinPointbut I guess something from 2.2 is left over01:16
kostkonBoneheads1999, sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get install software-center --reinstall01:16
kostkonBoneheads1999, give that cmd01:17
pfifotopper4125: check your motherboard's manufacturer's website for a bios update that could perhaps fix the issue01:17
Boneheads1999because there are 10 people talking to me01:17
topper4125OOh... didn't even think of that... will do pfifo, thanks!01:18
Boneheads1999Ben64: doing "sudo apt-get install minitube" installs the crappy minitube.  There's 2 in the software center.  The 2nd one (the one you have to buy) is the one that actually plays video01:18
Ben64Boneheads1999: ah01:19
Boneheads1999kostkon: I'm reinstalling USC now.01:20
kostkonBoneheads1999, ok hopefully will fix  it01:21
aPpYeI am trying to figure out some bash that will look at a list of packages and return what ones (if any) are already dependencies of others in the list.01:22
pinPointminimec: after doing a google, it being suggested I do a 'sudo apt-get -f install'. What do you think?01:23
pinPointit is*01:24
minimecpinPoint: Well.. You can try that. I don't think it will work, but you will not brake the system normally.01:24
Simi99Hi all! I used sym link between my Windows OS folder like Documents and my /home/User/Documents. My little problem is that with my file explorer, when I click on "Documents" I see my Document folder and only when I click on that folder I see my files. Is it possible to see my files directly?01:25
Ben64Simi99: what?01:25
pinPointminimec: I do not understand what I have to take out in my sources?01:25
pfifoSimi99: i think you have to remove the Documents folder and replace it with a symlink, it sounds like you made a link you you windows documents inside of your documents folder01:27
minimecpinPoint: Why do you need apache 2.4.6? I would remove that additional source (ppa) you added. The ubuntu package system cannot resolv the package conflicts on your system right now. I would first bring it back into a stable state.01:28
pfifopinPoint: run 'sudo apt-get update' and then retry the install of apache01:29
b0xi changed my date/time settings to different time01:29
pinPointpfifo: I did01:29
pinPointright after adding the ppa01:29
b0xnow the status bar 'time' just stays the same01:29
Simi99@pfifo, yes that's what I did: ln -s /media/simon/OS/Users/Simon/Documents /home/simon/Documents . What is a better alternative?01:29
b0xas the time when i changed it01:30
b0xis there something i can reset?01:30
maokaiiDoes anybody have a guide for connecting to a ubuntu system using windows 7 to be able to view or control? Everything I find is for lan connections01:30
topper4125anyone know of a package that I can run to see what version of BIOS I am running, or do I just need to reboot and check from there?01:30
Ben64maokaii: theres no difference between lan and wan01:30
b0xmaokaii: vnc?01:30
b0xand what Ben64 said01:30
Ben64Simi99: thats not the same, you made documents inside of documents01:30
b0xvnc / teamviewer / logmein ?01:31
maokaiib0x: ben64 when I say lan, I mean, from like one country to another, or one state to another. b0x idk how to work this VNC01:31
b0xuse teamviewer01:31
Ben64maokaii: lan = local area network. i'm not sure what you're talking about01:31
b0xits easy01:31
Simi99@Ben64 How can I do it otherwise?01:31
pfifopinPoint: ohh your using a PPA, well thats not supported here, to get help you will either have to use software from the repos or contact the maintainer of the PPA01:31

pinPointincreased security01:36
hitsujiTMOpinPoint: 2.4 does NOT bring increased security, just increased headaches.01:37
minimecpinPoint: Adding a ppa is less secure than using a apache version maintained by your distro. Your argument is wrong.01:37

pfifopinPoint: they (implied) recommended you use the version that the package manger gives you01:45
dbrookshitsujiTMO, I think the actual problem has to do with there not being enough space in /boot for the new kernel image, but I don't want to upgrade the kernel anyways (it just tried to do it because autoupdates got installed)01:45

dbrookshitsujiTMO, 3.8.0-19-generic01:45
pinPointI want support for stronger CypherSuites and forward secrecy01:46
pfifopinPoint: if you have to have that version then you have to build it yourself01:46

hitsujiTMOdbrooks: that's not a problem. can you pastebin the output of: dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-01:46
dbrookshitsujiTMO, sure01:47
hitsujiTMOdbrooks: we'll just purge the old kernels and manually install the dependencies to resolve the issue01:47
bekkspinPoint: As you can see - ask the maintainer of the PPA for fixing it. Or build apache2 yourself.01:47
bekkspinPoint: Not that I told you the same a few days ago ;)01:48
pinPointbekks: So if I build from source, will the dependecies get in the way?01:48

pinPointbekks: I was thinking this: http://itstuffallaround.blogspot.com/2013/09/configuring-apache-server-from-source.html01:49
bekkspinPoint: I will not guide you to use anything else than the stock ubuntu repo packages.01:50
pinPointbekks: sigh01:50
hitsujiTMOdbrooks: space shouldn't be an issue in /boot with such few kernels. can you pastebin: df -h01:50
bekkspinPoint: If you want to walk your own path on using an unsupported package - walk that path. And challenge the difficulties.01:51
pinPointso i shall leave those dependencies and build from scratch then01:52
bekkspinPoint: No. You should use the stock ubuntu packages. How often will you ask that again?01:52
hitsujiTMOdbrooks: its ok, you can remove remove the new kernels and linux-generic after and rerun update grub and that will keep you at 19.    is there a particular reason why you do not want kernel updates?01:52
dbrookshitsujiTMO, actually you are right, it is not a space issue because apparently I didn't create a seperate partition for /boot, and nothing is close to being filled up01:52

pfifodrasko: kernel uses kbuild or something like that, its based on makefiles02:06
hitsujiTMOdbrooks: np. btw for future reference. you can mark a package on hold so it never updates. such as: sudo apt-mark hold linux-generic02:06

xanguaSimi90: if you have your language packages set up correctly they should match with the current language you are using03:26
maokaiiwhats the terminal code to check which drive is on sda1 ?03:27
Beldarmaokaii, thatis a ISO loaded to a usb not a full install.03:27
maokaiiand check where its mounted/03:27

maokaiiany help then? I was told to use this and choose persistent and it will make it installed03:29
Beldarmaokaii, That just loads the iso to the usb so y9oucan do a full install, the persistent is to add stuff or what you do is saved on that usb.03:30

MKCoinok pfifo, no errors. Do I run upgrade now?03:31
Beldarmaokaii, What is your definition of install here?03:31
Beldarmaokaii, Probably not a iso loaded usb with a persistent has limitations.03:31
maokaiiBeldar: whatever you guys think it is, on ubuntu it shows "install" on the left side, and im in a live "try" mode, I dont want to install it to the hard drive, I want it installed on a usb drive so I can use wine03:31
geekmasterflashUbuntu-Staff: For one thing, your name appears to mark you as offical03:31
pfifoMKCoin: no, now remove the diversion, 'sudo rm -rf /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d' then 'sudo dpkg-divert --remove /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d'03:31
geekmasterflashUbuntu-Staff: But a whois on your IP indicates you are not connecting from the Ubuntu ip range03:32
geekmasterflashUbuntu-Staff: So offering support can be somewhat suspect03:32
maokaiibeldar: is it true I need to install it to use wine, and I cant use wine on a "try" mode?03:32
Simi90xangua: actually its blank, as if there is no application on startup03:32

Beldarmaokaii, Why do you want wine?03:33
xanguamaokaii: is not, sudo apt-get install wine ; of course a live session will not be saved and as I say you you first need to load the iso in multiboot and after you do, select the option menu to make it a persistent install03:33

sgp667zykotick9,  pfifo basically I instaled lubuntu on an old computer and Xorg actually uses a lot of CPU sometimes03:40

fixmypc956pfifo: what should I tweak03:42
MKCoinpfifo: No I did do that. When I run it again: No diversion 'any diversion of /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d', none removed.03:42

Beldarfishcooker, Try the bootrepair app in the bots grub links, and be sure to save the bootinfo summary.03:55

MKCoinin case this happens again lol03:57
pfifoMKCoin: you can make a backup but, in the end make sure there isnt a file named '/usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d.distrib' it needs to be backed up elsewhere03:57
pfifoMKCoin: but that file is easilly replaceable, its in the package sysv-rc03:58

pfifotbird: are you sure your using the right password?04:17
tbirdi've tried the root password, the main users password, and the secondary users password and it doesnt like any of it04:17
zykotick9tbird: i don't even have an "admin" group?  if you added yourself to a new group (ie sudo) - you NEED to log out and back in for it to apply!04:17
Beldarfishcooker, If you followed that link and it did not work than you will have to use other methods, there a handful.04:18
tbirdthat user was not logged in. i am logged into the primary user account to make changes04:18
pfifotbird: sudo wants the password of the user who is running it, so if you sun sudo as user2, and you enter user1's password... fail, also if you never set a password for user2... fail04:18
tbirddo i need to restart or something?04:18

pfifozykotick9: that makes it sound even more like an overlay, mplayer would definatly want to take advantage of the features of your graphics card once drivers are installed04:31
pfifoi think the default vo is GL which would be directly affected by changin to the propierty driver04:32
zykotick9pfifo: i'll play with it ;)  it sucked, 'cause i was in a RUSH to get a screenshot - ever used backtrack/kali?  check this out - https://pumpdog.me/zykotick9/image/y6JMXuF2QxaWgJHcdKiOKw (i hope you can see that image) </OT>04:35

pfifomy VPS has the wrong time, it was off by -251 seconds. I just installed ntp, hopefully this dont happen again. kind weird there would be a clock skew on a VPS04:44
pfifoFlurglerHobbit: how are you running it?04:44
FlurglerHobbitpfifo: what do you mean?04:44

FlurglerHobbitI mean just specifying the file isn't enough from my understanding04:49

What is the reason for it ? I copy and pasted the path exactly at it appears in pwd. What should I do to get the correct path for the file05:02
pfifoFlurglerHobbit: right, you dont need to start an X client on the server05:02

geekmasterflashHello, I need help finding out what is causing my system to freeze05:21
geekmasterflashI have been forced to hard-boot 3 times in the last hour05:21
wheatthinFirst clue, open process manager and check :)05:22
geekmasterflashThat's just it05:22
geekmasterflashNothing there is out of the ordinary05:22
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Temperature is was 40c at last crash05:22
wheatthinsecondly, check your logs.. the size matters05:22
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Which log? I am something of a newbie05:22
wheatthincheck all logs for their size.. anything over 1gb would cause system to crawl.. I dunno about crashing..05:23
wheatthincheck dmesg in the terminal, see if there's anything listed in there05:23
bhag_i am seeing black screen on bootup . How to resolve it?05:23
geekmasterflashwheatthin: The largest thing in my /var/log is 1.8 MB05:24
wheatthinhmm.. .. what were you running during these crashes?05:24
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Clementine and I was using Omegle (so my webcam and firefox)05:25
maccam_Hey all, I'm needing some help with permissions and file ownership for my webserver.  Anyone willing to give me a few pointers?05:26
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Crash is total too, I can't drop to terminal or get any response to REISUB05:26
wheatthinbhag_, does this screen eventually go to a login screen?05:26
bhag_no wheatthin05:27

geekmasterflashbhag_: Can you press Cntl+Alt+F1 to get to command line?05:27
maccam_wheatthin: thanks05:27
bhag_geekmasterflash__: no its not05:28
geekmasterflashbhag_: Got a recovery disc?05:29
bhag_geekmasterflash: I dont have a recovery disc05:30
geekmasterflashbhag_: Reboot and hold down shift05:30
geekmasterflashbhag_: Hopefully that will bring you to GRUB05:30
geekmasterflashbhag_: And you should have a recovery console option there05:30
bhag_geekmasterflash__: After 2 to 3  times of hard reboot then its working fine05:30

bhag_geekmasterflash: I dont think its a hardware issue. Seems like some problem with video driver05:33
geekmasterflashbhag_: And there should be a recovery mode there05:33
geekmasterflashbhag_: Unlikely05:33
geekmasterflashbhag_: Because cnt;+alt+f1 should bring you to command line05:33

scipy53I suddenly have developed a problem with flash not working in my browsers. I tried re-installing and all a few times now, no luck. Anyone else having such a problem?05:35
geekmasterflashwheatthin: So presuming it's my video card, is there some log I could look at that would tell me what was going on when it froze up?05:35
wheatthindmesg and Xorg.log.0 or whatever05:35
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Whoa05:37
geekmasterflashwheatthin: dmesg is mostly greek to me, but in my log I see something very strange05:38
geekmasterflashwheatthin: At the time of my crash I see /00/00/00/00/0005:38
geekmasterflashWritten dozens of times05:38
geekmasterflashwheatthin: then what appears to be the log starting over for the next boot05:38
wheatthingeekmasterflash, you have you look at the end of the error, and see if it has an error code. Most likely it is hardware related, but which hardware I do not know.05:43
wheatthinduring the crash itself, did your computer let out any beep codes?05:44
geekmasterflashwheatthin: That's just it, there is no error05:44
geekmasterflashwheatthin: I see some (WW) lists, but they are mostly just telling me that they can't verify my HorizSync range05:45
wheatthinthat could be a problem of the video not turning on.05:45
wheatthinEIDE failing05:45
geekmasterflashwheatthin: Obviously my video is working. We are having this conversation from the machine in question05:46
wheatthinright, but might be a sign about the monitor going out.05:46
geekmasterflashwheatthin: That would cause a total system freeze?05:46
Ben64geekmasterflash: what version of ubuntu? you should run a ssh server to see if that responds during a crash05:46
wheatthinno, but would make it seem like it.05:46
geekmasterflashBen64: I am on 13.10 Gnome-Ubuntu 64bit05:47

reisioLope: you can clearly afford to go out and buy more storage :) it is cheap07:11
Lopereisio: I'd like to but its not possible because my swap is encrypted and I haven't done the hack where the swap gets encrypted with a password instead of /dev/random07:12
reisiorobierob: it's not working enough to have useful info :)07:12
Lopehibernation is not a priority but I'd like to get it working at some point.07:12
reisioLope: k07:12
robierobhow do we kill it and restart... i am faairly quick with terminal07:12
reisioLope: I'd get more space07:12
Lopereisio: if you read more carefully my LVM is only half full07:12
reisioLope: 750MB is plenty of free space for a system you aren't actively generated many megs of data on07:13
Lopedude my LVM is only half full07:13
reisioLope: put home in your lvm then07:13
geekmasterflashBen64: I fixed it!07:13
Lopeokay well this is what I need help with :)07:13
reisiorobierob: kill what?07:13
Lopewhat about resizing the LVM partition to be smaller and sda3 to be bigger07:13
Lopeis that possible?07:13
reisioLope: yeah07:13
Lopeor is it safest/easiest to move home to LVM? my home is encfs07:13
robierobeverything.... lol it driving me crazy.... geekmaster helped eirlier but he dosent know much about grafix cards from ATI07:14
reisioLope: why do you have an lvm and then additional unix partitions not within it?07:14
geekmasterflashrobierob: Hello again robierob07:14
robierobgeek... i am hurting man... lol07:14
Ben64geekmasterflash: how?07:14
reisiorobierob: can you pastebin lspci -n ?07:14
geekmasterflashBen64: I nuked xserver-xorg and switched drivers to nvidia-319-updates07:15
sgo11hi, I saw many tcp connections from my localhost:22 to another IP address. why? how can I check if someone logging in my ssh server? thanks.07:15
Ben64sgo11: should  be in your logs07:15
sgo11192.168.1.103:22 -- ip:random_port.07:15
zerooneonesgo11: probably dictionary attacks07:15
Lopereisio: because this is my first linux install that I use as a main system and I didn't know much about LVM. I didn't know you can run the entire system on LVM07:15
sgo11Ben64, ssh logs?07:16
robierobreisio: geekmasterflash:    http://pastebin.com/UP718Yts07:16
reisioLope: okay, well07:16
reisioLope: the long term ideal solution may well be to put everything into the lvm07:16
reisioLope: then you can resize things really easily in future07:16
Lopereisio: initially sda4 was an extended partition with a NTFS partition inside it and linux kept corrupting it, and I couldn't preserve permissions copying files into it. it was a disaster. so I removed it then decided to experience LVM.07:17
XMLnewbibha what is this crazy bash crap. Im trying to do sudo rm keyinwrongplace.pub        and its replying back   bash: pub  event not found07:17
=== AndresSM_away is now known as AndresSM
Lopereisio: yeah I get that. is there an easy way to copy off my entire system and then reload it back onto LVM? :)07:18
geekmasterflashrobierob: .I am taking it you didn't get the drivers installed?07:18
sgo11Ben64, zerooneone yeah, I saw those failed attempts in /var/log/auth.log. very weird. why do they want to do this?07:18
reisioXMLnewbi: can you relay the command more precisely?07:18
robierobi installed it as per the website07:18
Lopecan you run swap on LVM?07:18
robierobthis is where i am at after 6 hours07:18
reisioLope: you can do whatever in an LVM07:18
robierobi might need a little more hand holding... :(07:18
sgo11dictionary attacks will never succeed. my password is extremely long.07:19
reisioLope: it's a little involved after the fact, and resizing partitions isn't 100% (more like 90% safe)07:19
XMLnewbithere is a file, a ssh in the wrong dir.          im trying to remove it.             sudo rm filename.pub                   it doest not delete, and returns          bash: ! .pub: event not found07:19
reisioLope: you got everything backed up?07:19
reisioXMLnewbi: are you sure your command hasn't random spaces in it, like your IRC msgs?07:20
Lopereisio: not really. I've got my important data backed up. but I don't have a full backup of my home dir or my linux fs etc.07:20
Nothing_Much#ubuntu-arm is inactive, is there a problem with the dependencies for the Linux Kernel on Ubuntu 13.10?07:20
Ben64sgo11: there are bots that try it all the time, its not a big deal unless you have a weak user/pass07:20
zerooneonesgo11: i get 1000s of attempts. that's what happens if you use the standard sshd port07:20
reisioLope: well to be 100% safe you'd need one of those :p07:20
Ben64Nothing_Much: unlikely07:21
zykotick9sgo11: if you run an ssh server connetable from the internet, i'd HIGHLY suggest you look into use fail2ban07:21
reisioLope: and since you should really have one anyways...07:21
LopeI just figured if it gets messed up I'll reinstall, but I suppose thats silly cos I'd have downtime.07:21
reisiois it a server?07:21
Nothing_MuchBen64: Then how come I can't upgrade my kernel from 3.4 to 3.11?07:21
sgo11Ben64, thanks.07:21
XMLnewbiand if there was a typo it should do command not found07:21
Ben64Nothing_Much: no idea, you should wait for #ubuntu-arm people to show up07:21
XMLnewbinot that insaine bash crap07:21
geekmasterflashrobierob: Can you give me a better idea of where "here" is?07:21
sgo11zerooneone, thanks. this is just home PCs. I will turn off DMZ setup in the home router.07:22
sgo11zykotick9, thanks a lot. I will look into fail2ban. very useful for my server.07:22

Lopeoops sorry for repeating07:27
LopeI meant to say at the moment sda2 is swap, sda3 is linux + home dir. sda4 is LVM. Can I back them up, then remove sda2+3+4 and make one LVM then copy my linuxFS onto a new volume, home onto its own volume, and another volume for data. how would I get grub working after that?07:28
geekmasterflashrobierob: Which is telling me that your card isn't using the driver07:28
Ben64tbird: follow the syntax of the examples in the file...07:28
Lopeshit my clipboard fucked out sorry.07:28

robierobwe are back to this morning07:28
Ben64Lope: watch the language here07:28
Lopesorry. I can plug my HDD into another PC. I know how to backup, remove the partitions, create an LVM and volumes and copy the data back. but after that I dunno how to get grub working?07:28
geekmasterflashzykotick9: Oh? I get the driver line with just -v -s07:29
Ben64Lope: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair very good tool07:29
geekmasterflashrobierob: Okay, try zykotick9 's suggestion07:29

tbirdthis is the syntax: "" this is what i did: "ragtrade.5gbfree.comlocalhost" then i reboot, clear history and test, and bang it still goes to the live site instead of pointing back to the dev site07:29
geekmasterflashrobierob: Give me a pastebin of lspci -v -s -k 01:05.007:29

tbird@ Ben6407:30
Lopecan boot reparit get grub to boot linux from a LVM volume?07:30

Kurvivorhello! I want to share some folders/files from my ubuntu computer. What would be better: make a ftp server or share them using samba?07:33
zykotick9amitprakash: just a side note, but installing software with pip isn't really an ubuntu issue...  it's like using a ppa - 3rd party stuff.  best of luck.07:34
tbird127 is source, both are on the source side. if this is not correct, you nor the file has explained otherwise07:34
robierobok.....so whats the call geekmasterflash?07:34
arunKurko: u can host an ftp server07:34
zykotick9ftp must die!07:34
Ben64tbird: hint: one is an ip address07:34

Ben64tbird: or you could have followed the syntax from the one above like i told you07:36
geekmasterflashrobierob: As I thought, still no driver07:36
geekmasterflashrobierob: This is beyond me, but you at least know your problem07:36
Lopetbird quit whining. if you want help you should be greatful you get help. try work on gratitude and kindness and you'll experience more of it from others.07:36
geekmasterflashrobierob: You've installed your driver, but it's not being used by your card07:36
tbirdyou people would be fired in a day.07:37

bazhangsandman13, then ask a clearer question, as it's not apparent what you seek08:59
sandman13there's icon theme section in xfce-look.org but i'm confused whether that would install icons for close, minimize buttons09:01

wildc4rdhow can I delete a folder created in/by root?10:00

wildc4rdit was an installation in terminal using sudo10:00

kkkkkkkhi all, i am using ubuntu 12.04 and there is a problem irritating me a lot, many times my laptop cd drive ejects automatically and when i re insert , it ejects again, and it happens 2-3 times, and then it stay closed. It happens at random time, but after few minutes of logging in.10:05
kkkkkkkhow to solve that??10:05
kkkkkkki reinstalled but same problem10:05
kkkkkkkfirstly i supposed, button may be pressed accidently, but this is a problem10:06
cfhowlettkkkkkkk,  sounds like a hardware issue.  short circuit of the eject key would do just as you describe10:06
ikoniakkkkkkk: I used to see this with certain CD brands years ago when it couldn't always read them10:06
ikoniait used to take 3 - 4 goes and then it would read them, I can't remember the brand.10:06

nashantikonia: Well after reading the three options seem to be mysql, mariadb or percona. mariadb has lots of myisam optimizations, percona has xtradb (a replacement for innodb)10:40

ubottudanux: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!12:31

sventonhi again,  I had some questions about permissions and security yesterday and I think I understand how this work now. It is just one thing I don't grasp. If somebody know my administration password does that mean that they can find a way to log in to my machine over a network ?12:58
hitsujiTMOwho__: scp of sftp12:58
SASDOEsventon: well if its connected, sure12:58
gordonjcpwho__: look into using pscp12:59
SASDOEalso needs open ports on whatever way they wish to connect to12:59
gordonjcpsventon: that's true of any system12:59
mika__hitsujiTMO: im now installing it again. let's see13:00
gordonjcpsventon: if you connect your machine to a network, enable some sort of remote connection, and give your password out, then people will be able to connect to it and pretend to be you13:00

molgrumhi i want to install cinnamon and i checked a video that says i should install both cinnamon and muffin. on webpages they say just cinnamon package. what gives?13:01
SASDOEgordonjcp: true enough! but i don't think that was his concern13:01
mika__hitsujiTMO:  what if windows had a efi but it was on ssd and i delete it?13:01
SASDOEmolgrum: i think you can install it simply with apt-get install cinnamon13:01
sventonSASDOE: but are not all ports closed by default ?  As I understood it I have to open my machine from the "inside" before somebody can access it from a network. Is that correct ?13:01
bhaveshwould lowering the laptop brightness beyond limits damage the hardware?13:01
mika__hitsujiTMO: i don't know why os what is on hdd would but the efi partition to ssd :D but maybe it can be possible?13:01
hitsujiTMOmika__: its not. its an mbr file ssystem ( can see from using fdisk -l)13:01
SASDOEsventon: yes indeed all ports are (normally) closed per default13:01
SASDOEsventon: but as gordonjcp pointed out, anyone connected to the same network as the machine will be able to connect and do whatever13:03
molgrumSASDOE: i see, it depends on muffin-common13:03
SASDOEsventon: it is good practice to never give out the admin password, never login as root (only isue sudo commands) and only hand out limited access accounts13:04
SASDOEsventon: i'd recommend running a "passwd" to change it!13:04
SASDOEmolgrum: and apt-get should install depencies all by itself13:04
molgrumthanks, now i'm going to try out cinnamon :)13:05
SASDOEmolgrum: i'm sure you'll like it13:05
sventonSASDOE:  yes I don¨t run as administrator because I am told not to do that.  Now I try to understand the technical reasons for this.  What's the definition of a network ? I have a internet connection using a wireless modem. Is it possible for an intruder to access my machine that way ?13:08
SASDOEa network is simply a web (as in cob web) of interconnected computers13:09
SASDOEthere are plenty of networks, but you are probably mainly familiar with two: your LAN, wich interconnects all your computers with no port restrictions, so they can all communicate freely13:10
SASDOEsventon: and the internet, wich is sort of a big home LAN, for the world13:11
mika__hitsujiTMO:  so i deleted the whole ssd and windows doesnt start13:11
hitsujiTMOmika__: what is the error? was windows installed while the ssd was in place?13:12
mika__hitsujiTMO: i think the ssd had uefi partition what was for windows (hdd)13:12
mika__hitsujiTMO:  yes it was13:12
SASDOEsventon: if your modem, wich is the door between your LAN and the internet, is filtering ports, as it by default should, only very motivated hackers could access your data13:13
hitsujiTMOmika__: did windows show up in grub?13:14
SASDOEsventon: the more likely way one would take control of your computer would be via an in infected web page (since port 80 is open by default on all routers), and for that i can only advise to stay away from dodgy websites, and leave the windows closed!13:14
mika__hitsujiTMO:  nope13:14
molgrumwas not impressed by cinnamon, it was really laggy at first and then it froze up. i tried 2D also and the same problem occured :(13:14
SASDOEmolgrum: what are your hardware specs?13:15
molgrumlet me see13:15
mika__hitsujiTMO: i didn't even see whole grub..it starts automaticly the ubuntu....13:15
mika__hitsujiTMO: but not anymore of course because i format the ssd13:15
SASDOEdid you install grub ? if so, to what hard drive?13:15
mika__hitsujiTMO: is there to make new efi thingy for windows and transfer it to hdd side...or to i have to install whole windows again :(13:16
SASDOEmika__: also, did you install it to a partition or to a hard drive?13:16
molgrumSASDOE: [Radeon HD 5700 Series]13:16

mika__hitsujiTMO:  yeah i did, but same thing...so i format it now13:17
molgrumunity and gnome shell runs smoothly though13:17
molgrumi don't understand why cinnamon doesn't13:17
SASDOEmolgrum: i don't either, it should..!13:18
hitsujiTMOmika__: dont format. use boot-repair. that should pick up the windows install and add an entry to grub13:18
mika__hitsujiTMO:  weird stuff, i have installed this dual boot like 3 times to this computer and only now i got a problem xD.13:19
sventonSASDOE: thanks a lot for your explanation, I  think I understand now.  Normally even If I connect using for example my USB modem the hacker can't just test my account password if I haven't changed my settings to allow login. Correct ?13:19
mika__hitsujiTMO: 3 times succesfully13:19
mika__hitsujiTMO:  im pretty sure now that windows efi was on ssd side :/13:20
SASDOEsventon: it depends. if you connect to a public network, like starbucks for example, anyone connected can run any number of tests on all connected computers. including a brute force on your password.13:21
mika__hitsujiTMO: and it has been now overwriten by linux efi and now the ssd is empty xD13:21
hitsujiTMOmika__: windows is on an mbr partition table not gpt. so its an mbr install not uefi.13:21
SASDOEsventon: but from your home network you should be fairly safe13:21
mika__hitsujiTMO:  why then windows wount start if ssd is empty?13:21
mika__ok i will write the error down and i come back here13:22
BluesKajHey folks13:22
hitsujiTMObecause its dependent on how you're trying to boot it. are you still on efi boot or have you switched to bios boot?13:22

hitsujiTMOmika__: if you did. that creates a windows install usb with an ntfs partition. UEFI has a requirement that it can only boot fat12/16/32 partitions. so booting that usb forced a windows mbr/bios install and installed the bootstrap to the ssd and what's caused your whole mess.13:42

hitsujiTMOmika__: if you want a uefi boot then you try this: set the hdd to the primary drive. run a windows install usb and run fixmbr. this should install the bootstrap to the start of the hdd and not the ssd. test that that boots. then go back to the bios and set the ssd as the primary drive and reinstall ubuntu as uefi install. I'm not sure if os-prober will pick up mbr installs when in uefi boot, but its worth a try. if not you can then try boot13:51
hitsujiTMO-repair after and it should hopefully add an entry for the mbr windows install to your grub menu13:51
hitsujiTMOmika__: disabling uefi boot is the simpler method ofcource13:52

=== Guest85493 is now known as BroT1
hitsujiTMOmika__: your previous installs were probably working as gpt leaves space for an mbr bootsrap just incase such setups happened and at some point the bootsrap got overwritten, such as with zeroing the drive or forcing the gpt partition to erase any mbr info13:55

philinuxsince firefox 25.0.1 2 days ago flash is now borked - any one else seeing this14:10
reisiophilinux: define borked14:10
XHEART24hi everyone,14:11
philinuxreisio;~ vids dont even play firefox freezes then say reload page to try again14:11
reisiophilinux: screenshot?14:11
XHEART24when using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS what is a good DVD burner program in Ubuntu sotware center?14:11
philinuxreisio;~ eventually says flash plugin has crashed14:11
reisioXHEART24: data dvd?14:12
m1rXHEART24: brasero default14:12
hitsujiTMOphilinux: firefox has depricated NPAPI and is removing it really soon ( if it hasn't done it yet ) which is what the flash player is based on. so that could be the problem. is ti showing up in: about:plugins14:12
philinuxreisio;~ nothing to see firefox greys out thenplugin crash message appears14:12
reisioXHEART24: mmm, I really wouldn't recommend wasting time burning a video dvd14:12
reisioXHEART24: it can take an expert a whole day to manage it14:13
reisiothe variables are endless14:13
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ yep- purged flash and reinstalled. It was fine before latest FF update as I was watching UDS vidoes14:13
reisiothere is never a time where it isn't cheaper to just get a media PC to use instead of a dvd player14:13
reisioXHEART24: incredibly really14:13
kostkonXHEART24: devede to create the iso' then burn it with brasero14:13
reisioyou can earn in a day of work, at minimum wage, more than enough to buy a media PC14:14

ubuntuaddictedi'm having a heck of a time with the AMD linux driver from the website and libGL libraries so Steam is complaining that it's context is not using direct 3d rendering or something like that.14:23
reisioubuntuaddicted: from the website?14:23
ubuntuaddictedthere's posts everywhere on the internet of how to fix it but many attempts have resulted in no fix. anyone have a silver bullet for this 32bit library issue when using a 64bit OS?14:23
hitsujiTMOubuntuaddicted: is this running steam in wine?14:24
ubuntuaddictedno wine14:24
ubuntuaddictedreisio, yes, the latest stable AMD catalyst from the website. I created deb packages from the .run installer14:24
Dan9311Is it possible to install L4D2 on ubuntu, using the installer CD? (just moving all the game data over)14:25
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ right - main pc ok it's just this lappy here - odd14:25
reisioubuntuaddicted: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI14:25
reisioDan9311: don't see why not14:26
ubuntuaddictedi have the following installed libgl1-mesa-glx: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1.2 and fglrx: /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.214:26
hitsujiTMOphilinux: i'd almost try resetting the firefox profile to see if its a ff config issue or an issue with the plugin14:26
Dan9311reisio: The CD is made for windows installation, but in steam it says it runs on linux as well14:26
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ brb14:26
ubuntuaddictedreisio, sadly that's what I followed which lead me with the issues14:27
chroWhy when I connect headphones, and then disconnect, the sound stops working from the speakers?14:27
ubuntuaddictedchro, maybe a bad headphone jack and it's not sensing that you unplugged the headset14:28
hitsujiTMODan9311: afaik the game cd contains a backup image. so try restore backup from the steam menu14:28
ubuntuaddictedchro, that happened to my friends apple computer. sound was permanently routed to headphones because the headphone jack thought headphones were plugged in. he had to get it repaired by replacing the jack14:29
Dan9311hitsujiTMO: The reason id like to use the CD to install, is so I dont have to wait for steam to download it.14:29
chroubuntuaddicted, the headset is of high quality with gold jacket. That is unlikely14:30
Dan9311hitsujiTMO:  The CD contains a setup.exe, but also all the other game files14:30
chrobut I will try with other headphones14:30
hitsujiTMODan9311: have you added the cdkey to steam yet?14:30
Dan9311hitsujiTMO: Yes14:30
ubuntuaddictedchro, i didn't say the headset, i said the jack.14:30
hitsujiTMODan9311: then try restore backup from the steam menu and point it to the CD14:30
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ sorted it14:30
hitsujiTMOphilinux: what was the problem? or did you reset the ff profile?14:31
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ I removed unity-system-compositor from the laptop rebooted and all fine14:31
chroubuntuaddicted, ok let me rephrase my question. I just tested and it works fine. The problem is that if I use headphones and the shutdown the computer, and unplug the jack. Then, when I boot ubuntu I have no sound in speakers14:31
arpdDoes anyone know how I can disable the "alt-rightclick" binding in Ubuntu 13.10? It's driving me nuts.14:31
hitsujiTMOphilinux: weird. i have unity-system-compositor installed too and not getting th eissue14:32
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ main pc runs on nouveax with mir just fine but since ff 25.0.1 on laptop mir causing problem with intel card14:32
ubuntuaddictedchro, have you ensured that the volume isn't really low or muted within alsamixer?14:32
chroubuntuaddicted, I mean ubuntu didn't sense that I unplugged because the system was down when I did it14:32
Dan9311hitsujiTMO: I havnt anything to restore from, this is not the original computer it was installed on.14:32
chroubuntuaddicted, of course. That's not the problem. I have to explicitly switch in sound settings to speakers to get sound again14:33
ubuntuaddictedchro, ah I see. i would say that's a little bug in the jack and the OS14:33
philinuxhitsujiTMO;~ flash now fine on this laptop, mir + ff 25.0.1 and intel = flash crash14:33
chroubuntuaddicted, yes but this didn't happen in the previous version.. This version introduced a lot of bugs like that14:34
chroubuntuaddicted, for example, when I see a facebook photo in full screen and the escape to normal screen I lost the left lunch bar and the upper bar. (to get back I have to press super key)14:35
ubuntuaddictedchro, sometimes there's regression it happens. you could submit a bug report14:35
hitsujiTMODan9311: what i'm trying to say is that the CD image itself contains a backup image. you're restoring from the cd itself14:35
chroubuntuaddicted, but don't you think it's a bit non-sense to have all this bugs, when in the previous version everything was fine14:35
chroubuntuaddicted, one other bug I have is that the keyboard leds do not work (however the functionality is ok).14:36
chroand another bug is that I cannot scroll down in gedit with the mouse wheel14:36
chronothing of this happened before14:37
hitsujiTMODan9311: if that doesn't work then you will prob have to download the full content14:37
ubuntuaddictedchro, yes, regression sucks big time. not much you can do but submit a bug report OR fix the code yourself and submit a patch14:37
Dan9311hitsujiTMO: Yeah I cant find a backup, I appreciate the help though14:38
chroubuntuaddicted, do you think this happens with other distros ?14:38
ubuntuaddictedchro, yes14:38
MrDyneodd, whenever I do sudo service networking restart it wipes out my background picture and desktop shortcuts until I restart.14:38
chrobecause I was also addicted to ubuntu, but this is too much .. especially because everything was fine on 13.414:38

rigo88ubuntu 12.04 and kernel 3.6.314:47
hitsujiTMOmolgrum: never i'm guessing.14:47
MrDyneI'm guessing for extra user security Apache (LAMP) is ran it in's own user account so if a backdoor is found only the website files can be harmed. Would it be wise to do the same for other software like Team Speak server and Minecraft server? Have each autorun at boot in it's own user account?14:47
ubuntuaddictedWOW, this graphics driver issue is 1 thing thats really holding back Linux from becoming mainstream. If I change GFX cards and want to install it driver, i shouldn't have to go to tty1 and then after it fails i'm stuck at a terminal prompt with no way of getting back to a gui.14:48
ubuntuaddictedi'm not a newb so I can fight my way through it but for people brand new, if this happened they'd be reaching for the windows installer disc right away14:48
ginsunI was asked an interesting question today: if a file w/ permissions 644 is stored in a directory with permissions 730, how might the file be compromised in this case?14:49
rigo88i installed the 12.04 server minimal system. and then apt-get install lxde14:49
reisioubuntuaddicted: you ever change graphics cards using another OS?14:49
rigo88what sould i check? or how?14:49
MrDyneI know enough not to run stuff as root, but is it safe to run servers off the normal GUI user on a Xubuntu install?14:49
hitsujiTMOmolgrum: mate represents a step backwards in development and relies on older libs not a step forwards so its frowned upon by most. until it matures a more modern DE then it prob wont make it to the repo14:49
ubuntuaddictedreisio, yes, windows xp14:49
reisioubuntuaddicted: and there was only one driver available, right?14:50
ubuntuaddictedreisio, and there was a GUI for me through the entire process. drag, point and clicks versus manual commands14:50

philinuxmolgrum;~ what about that ppa in the link - that should be fine14:54
ikoniawhy should a PPA be "fine"14:55
philinuxikonia;~ cos it's patched not to break unity14:55

mika__hitsujiTMO:  nothing, even if i press the recovery it says my window version doesn't match or something...i could write it down again xD.14:56
philinuxquote Previously, installing Cinnamon 2.0+ in Ubuntu 13.10 would completely break Unity: when trying to log in to Unity, LightDM would fail to load the session and the display manager would restart.14:56

ikoniaMrDyne: run them how you feel confident running them securly15:07

ubuntuaddictedtrying to sort out my libGL issues I am reading that running the 32bit version of glxinfo will help me but no where does it state how to run the 32bit version. if i run glxinfo, thats the 64bit version15:08
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: why would running a 32bit version of glxinfo fix anything ?15:09
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: if that works then you can then just use scp to copy over the files, or normally what i do is ssh to it. wget the tar.gz and untar it there on the server15:10
RoryMrDyne: Since your "server" has a graphical interface, the easiest way to avoid headaches for yourself as the sysadmin further down the line, is to set it to automatically log in, and set those programs to run at startup using Startup Applications15:10
ubuntuaddictedikonia, it's not going to fix anything. it's going to show me how the libraries are linked so I can then fix it. Do you have a solution to my steam error that states, "OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering"15:10
ikoniaa public server on the internet set to "auto login" - I think not15:10
Roryikonia: Go on15:10
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: me too; but what about smf that needs an fp connection?15:10
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: what do you want to know is linked where /15:11
ikoniaRory: go on what ?15:11
MrDyneHow do I create a limited user account that doesn't have gui/xserver access but can be accessed by terminal/ssh/ftp?15:11
Roryikonia: How is sutostarting the GUI any different from starting it manually each time on boot?15:11
ikoniaRory: if you auto login you have left a session running logged in - it's wide open15:11
ubuntuaddictedikonia, my opengl libraries are symlinked due to my running a 64bit OS but steam runs in 32bit. I installed the latest stable AMD driver and ldconfig wasn't correctly coded so libraries are not linked properly15:12
ikoniayou're not mean to leave it "logged in" on the public internet15:12
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: do it manually. its probably just permissions it needs to change. the manual fix should be on the website for the web app. sftp is not the same as ftp btw15:12
moxiemy firefox isnt working15:12
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: ldconfig isn't coded correctly ??15:12
RoryMrDyne: Then you should set up TeamSpeak and Mumble as upstart scripts15:12
m1sf1tmoxie: any more information? are you getting any errors reported?15:12
RoryMrDyne: That way you can manage them like "sudo service minecraft start" etc15:13
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: So if SMF needs an ftp not SFTP connection; what should I do? do i need to install any other package beside SSH?15:13
ubuntuaddictedikonia, when i start steam, i receive the following error, "OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering" do you know how to fix it15:13
RoryMrDyne: There's a guide on how to do it for Minecraft here http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Ubuntu_startup_script15:13
RoryMrDyne: I'm sure you can also work out how to adapt it for teamSpeak as well :)15:13
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: if you want to give it ftp access then you'd have to install and configure an ftp server ( which i would not recommend ). Normally i'd just perform the manual fixes.15:13
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: I have no idea how to fix it without looking into it more, but it suggests opengl is not interfacting with your hardware drivers for the video card correctly at a glance15:13
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: it is about 20 file that needs changes in code and also in permission ( installing tapatalk on smf)15:15
skinkittenhow do I install microsoft ergonimc keyboard 400015:15
ubuntuaddictedikonia, i believe it has to do with running a 64bit OS but steam runs as 32bit so there's some symlinking done within the /usr/lib/fglrx directories to point to the correct lib's so steam can run correctly15:15
skinkittenI plugged it in and there is no response15:15
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: realistically there not reason why a php app should need ftp access, all the developer needs to do is preserve permissions when tarring the archive.15:15

hitsujiTMOTDGPU: if thats the case then either install an ftp client, or find a script that will do that for you, OR, use another forum software that doesn't require you installing a security threat15:17
jinglescafeWhen we click firefox, it brings us to the login screen.15:18
MrDyneRory: install the terminal "screen" package then you can have the autostart script load the server in a screen socket which you can connect to if you need to run server commands without having to be in the game.15:18

motaka2Rory: What is the solution ?15:25
ubuntuaddictedikonia, here's a ldconfig command showing me all the linking but I am not sure what I can safely remove? I know i need to keep the fglrx links.15:25
ubuntuaddictedikonia, sorry, forgot link http://pastebin.com/TsNvnSGW15:25
Rorymotaka2: Wait, when you select from the Grub boot menu? or when you log into ubuntu?15:25
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: ldconfig doesnt show you what your linked against15:25
Rorymotaka2: Changing permissions on your ubuntu home directory wouldn't cause that problem, it must be a coincidence, is there anything else you were doing around the same time?15:25
motaka2Rory: When I select Grub boot menu15:25
motaka2Rory: I dont remeber anything more15:26
jinglescafemotaka2, did you update firefox?15:26
Roryjinglescafe: That has nothing to do with it, don't confuse people15:26
motaka2jinglescafe: I dont know I always accept all updates without checking them15:26
jinglescafeI pardon15:26
moxiei did...15:27
moxiei havent rebooted yet >_<15:27
Rorymotaka2: I recommend you boot from an ubuntu Live CD/USB and follow the instructions here to restore Grub using boot-repair tool https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub15:27
motaka2Rory: ok15:27
moxiei take it...rebooting would be a bad idea15:27
motaka2Rory: thank you15:27
ubuntuaddictedikonia, ok. here's ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo report BUT i believe this is for the 64bit version of glxinfo and I need the 32bit since steam is running as 32bit http://pastebin.com/aXDX4bP715:27
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: why are you looking at glxinfo ???15:29
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: glxinfo doesn't do anything15:29
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: run "file" against glxinfo15:29
jinglescafefile firefox15:30
ubuntuaddictedikonia, from what I have been reading it will allow me to collect useful diagnostic info.15:30

moxieshutdown -r now15:30
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: look at that output - it's pointing at 32bit libraries already15:30
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: I'm not sure why you care about glxinfo15:30
ubuntuaddictedikonia, ok, you're correct. the glxinfo is according to that output 32-bit LSB executable15:30

bobpitI have ubuntu 12.04 64 bit.  I want to install Skype and therefore I am reading about Multiarch15:31
RoryDoes that page not have instructions for that? My apologies motaka2 here is the correct link https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair15:31
bobpithow can I know that multiarch is correctly installed and working?15:31
motaka2Rory: thx15:32
lordcrusaderbekks it had bad sector unable to recover ,.. it15:32
ubuntuaddictedikonia, ok, i just have to figure out how to get 32bit steam to run using libGL 32bit libraries. I believe that's the issue. The error again is "OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering"15:32
lunitikbobpit: you will be able to run skype.15:32
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: yes15:32
bobpitI have installed it, but I had problems so I removed it15:32
bobpitand I want to do it right from the start15:32
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: is there anything there now? or is this the first app you're installing?15:32
bekkslordcrusader: To the disk is corrupted, not just the filesystem.15:32
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: the SMF is there15:33
lordcrusaderbekks .. is there any way to resolve it15:33
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: but you're just installing that now right?15:33

bekkslordcrusader: Replace the disk with a new one.15:33

bobpitlunitik, as I said, I had problems with Skype15:33
lordcrusader*bekks my files are there15:33
ubuntuaddictedikonia, this is what's posted at steam website to help troubleshoot why steam (opengl libraries) is not running correctly15:33
ubuntuaddictedikonia, duh, forgot link again https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=9938-EYZB-745715:33
Rorymotaka2: Boot from it, and follow the instructions on that link15:34
lunitikbobpit: back then, it was just a case of installing the right libs with lib32- in front... right now it is cleaner... does skype even support such an old version though?15:34
bekkslordcrusader: Didnt you back them up?15:34
hitsujiTMObekks: smf = simple machines forum :p15:34
bekkshitsujiTMO: ah, thats uninteresting :D15:34
jinglescafeI reinstalled the FireFox15:34
bobpitlunitik, you are saying that mutliarch is useless?  I do not need it?15:34
motaka2Rory: I dont understand those instructions15:34
ikoniaubuntuaddicted: ok, so now you have the information that page says you need15:34
jinglescafeIt says I must pay money to unlock the machine.15:34
lordcrusader<bekks>  no i have not backup for some of them.15:35
lunitikbobpit: where have you understood that from in my words?15:35
jinglescafeWhy do I have to pay?15:35
ubuntuaddictedikonia, lol, i have no idea what to do with it.15:35
jinglescafeI thought ubuntu is free.15:35
ikoniajinglescafe: ubuntu is free15:35
Rorymotaka2: Have you booted from the LiveCD15:35
ikoniajinglescafe: what are you actually doing15:35
Roryjinglescafe: What message are you seeing?15:35
bobpitlunitik, yes.... I am sorry15:35
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: can you pastebin the output of: ls -l /var/www15:35

TDGPUhitsujiTMO: i didn't have ftp while installing it . i did install manually not by the install.php;;;; now i am trying to install a plugin (tapatalk == post to froum from android devices) and that needs ftp too15:36
lordcrusader<bekks> is there any way to resolve it .. pls give some guidelines . thanks15:36
bekkslordcrusader: do you have a medium to backup your files now?15:36
lunitikbobpit: I think I am suggesting you upgrade unless there is a real reason you want such old software.15:36
Rorymotaka2: Boot from the Live CD and select the option to "Try ubuntu"15:36
TDGPUbekks: SMF simple machine forum;;; it is an php script15:36
jinglescafeDepartment of Homeland Security’s ICE Cyber Crime Center,15:36

jinglescafeI did no crime.15:36
TDGPUbekks: like the one on ubuntu forums15:36
lunitikbobpit: most software is written for the newest stuff, especially desktop software.15:36
ikoniajinglescafe: I suggest you talk to the cafe owner about their network15:37
bobpitlunitik, I have the latest ubuntu 12.04 lts and I want to stick to it.  You suggest I upgrade Skype, Multiarch or Ubuntu?15:37
bekksTDGPU: Obviously, thats scamware.15:37
ikoniajinglescafe: it sounds like there is a serious problem with these machines and his network that is nothing to do with ubuntu15:37
lunitikbobpit: Ubuntu.15:37
jinglescafeI am the cafe owner.15:37
TDGPUbekks: which onr? :D15:37
motaka2Rory: Seems it is loading15:37
bekksTDGPU: "onr"?15:37
bobpitlunitik, I prefer the LTS, as it is SUPPOSED to be more stable15:37
lordcrusader<bekks> does need to replace my harddisk..or i can solve it15:37
ikoniajinglescafe: ok, please run the following commands and show me the output15:37
bekkslordcrusader: You need to backup your files and you need to relace your harddisk.15:38
ikoniajinglescafe: ls -la /usr/bin/firefox15:38
lunitikbobpit: It is just supported longer, every release gets constant regression testing and the like.15:38
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: what i'm guessing is that you never changed ownership of the /var/www and had to use sudo when copying over/extracting the SMF files right?15:38
huyinghuanthere is a "iptables -I INPUT -p 47 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT" iptables command,but I don't know which file to add it?15:38
lordcrusader<bekks> thank for your guides15:38
bobpitlunitik, I prefer to stay with 12.04.  Now do I need to concern with multiarch?15:38
motaka2Rory: Should it take this long ? It is still loading15:39
lunitikbobpit: If you want to stay with 12.04, since skype is proprietary, you're gonna have to do without.15:39
Rorymotaka2: Depends on your hardware. What are you seeing?15:39
Rorymotaka2: a Live CD is slower to load than a real installation15:39
bobpitlunitik, skype download site has a version for 12.04 multiarch15:39
bobpitlunitik, so I am looking into it15:39

hitsujiTMOTDGPU: is your user a member of www-htdocs and has the folders got g+ws permission?15:42

moxiejinglescafe, use system restore15:42
jinglescafethats what i was told!15:42
ikoniajinglescafe: this isn't a virus15:42
lunitikbobpit: The skype package is supposed to depend the lib32-foo packages, which is probably why it is labeled "multiarch"... newer versions of apt just use :i386 at the end of the package to determine... stop thinking so much.15:42

ikoniajinglescafe: do not paste any more information, contact an IT professional to validate your network then re-install ubuntu from a trusted source15:48
truebattleaxesudo apt-get install opera15:48

thai-2012truebattleaxe :)15:48
jinglescafeI will try Opera now.15:48
ikoniajinglescafe: no no no no no15:48
lunitikbobpit: multiarch isn't a thing you can install, it is just packages compiled for another arch.15:48
jinglescafethank you truebattleaxe15:48
ikoniajinglescafe: until you are confident your network is "ok" - there is no point doing anything else15:48
truebattleaxeno problem15:48
truebattleaxeit should work in terminal15:48
ubuntuaddictedpfifo, the card supports it because I had this working just last night. BUT I tried to install the latest BETA AMD catalyst and everything got hosed from there15:48
ikoniajinglescafe: do not install anything else15:49
TDGPUhitsujiTMO: So what should I do;any script of mine that is there and need to do something should operate on nginx user to be able to do its job15:49
bobpitlunitik, so it IS working.  ok15:49
ikoniajinglescafe: there is a good chance your network is compromised if it's on every ubuntu machine15:49
pfifoubuntuaddicted: well revert back to what worked15:49
ikoniajinglescafe: you need to get your network validated / secured before doing anything else15:49

jinglescafeThats why I got Ubuntu Computers15:49

pfifoubuntuaddicted: learn what is installed by your installer then write a script to remove it all.15:53

jinglescafeiknoia, you tell that to my customers.15:53
jinglescafethey have banking they need to do15:53
bekksjinglescafe: Give us their contacts, we will tell them.15:53
Roryjinglescafe: With all due respect, if you're running an Internet cafe, it's your responsibility to secure your network15:53
ikoniajinglescafe: no, YOU tell it to your customers that you are unable to run a secure internet cafe after taking their money and they may have lost their personal details to you15:53
bekksjinglescafe: First you need to ensure your network isnt compromised anymore.15:54
ikoniajinglescafe: you are putting your customers at huge risk15:54
ikoniajinglescafe: this conversation needs to end now15:54
ubuntuaddictedpfifo, i could do that also. here's what glxinfo is reporting and I believe i need that libGL.so.1 to point to /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL instead of it pointing to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 because that libGL version is from mesa and apparently doesn't do direct rendering15:54
jinglescafeRory, where do i send the picuter?15:54

ubuntuaddictedpfifo, that's what's all screwed up, is the symlinking and what I am trying to fix15:55
ikoniaDTB: no, it appears the firefox binary has been replaced15:55
pfifoubuntuaddicted: to remove a symlink use the 'rm' command to add a symlink use the 'ln' command, good luck15:56
hitsujiTMOTDGPU: I can only tell you what i'd do. if you were to start from scratch for the /var/www directory: sudo rm -r /var/www; sudo mkdir /var/www;       then create the group www-user    andd your user to that group. then: sudo chown root:www-user /var/www; sudo chmod g+ws /var/www;                  relog and that would get you the neccessary permissions so that your user can administrate the web apps without compromising the security of the d15:57

ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub216:07
hitsujiTMOjenielle: that suggests that part of windows is still there16:07
hitsujiTMOjenielle: what way did you install?16:08
jhutchins_wkIt suggests that Grub did not install correctly to the first bootable drive and Windows is still trying to load.16:08
jenielleright that's what i figured but that should mean i have a bad download of the system files16:08
jhutchins_wkjenielle: No, the installer would be unlikely to complete in that case.16:08
hitsujiTMOjenielle: are you on the live cd now?16:08
jhutchins_wkjenielle: The problem is simply with the bootloader.16:08
Roryjenielle: It's likely that the Windows bootloader is on the 1.5tb drive which is being booted from, whereas the Ubuntu installer may have installed it to the 500gb drive16:09
jenielleerase the current operating system and intall ubuntu........that the install method i used16:09
jhutchins_wkjenielle: The system uses checksums to insure it doesn't install bad softwarea.16:09
Roryjenielle: If you change your BIOS to boot from the other hard drive, does it work?16:09
jenielleimade sure i used the 1.5 to install ubuntu. because on the 500 all i have on there are pics and music. no operating system.16:10
jenielleno i tried that already16:10
Roryjenielle: Are you on the Live CD now?16:11

fishcookerRory: what happen here .. http://paste.ubuntu.com/6464333/16:11
jinglescafeOkay, i got it. And I run it?16:11
jeniellethat's how im talking to you16:11
jhutchins_wkjenielle: A couple of common problems are that the drives are detected in a different order by the installer than by the installed system, or that people install grub to a partition instead of to the drive itself.16:11
jhutchins_wkjenielle: You could look at the link above to grub2 and it will give you instructions on how to fix it.16:12
jeniellemy cp wont boot up into windows or ubuntu16:12
Roryfishcooker: Can you run "sudo mv /var/lib/apt /var/lib/apt.bak"16:13
jinglescafejenille: what is wrong?16:13
ikoniajinglescafe: paste the photo please.16:13
Roryfishcooker: fishcooker and then "sudo mv /var/cache/apt /var/cache/apt.bak"16:13
hitsujiTMOjenielle: i'd recommend this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair16:13
Roryjenielle: Grub2 is the ubuntu boot loader16:14
BluesKajone should always seththe windows drive as default (if windows is installed) then ubiquity will install grub to the mbr on that drive , tha's been my experience16:14

samuelxAre there nightly builds of 13.10 that include updates that came out after the release?16:14
bekksjinglescafe: Where is your picture upload?16:14
Rorysamuelx: No16:15
bekksSASDOE: He knows and seems to ignore that fact.16:15
Rorysamuelx: LTS releases like 12.04 occasionally get their updates rolled into new isos (we're on 12.04.3 now, for example) but it's not worth it for non-LTS releases16:15
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: no. any builds after that are trusty16:15
jenielleok. but what i don't understand is that i installed ubuntu last time along side my current operating system and it work flawlessly16:15
Roryjenielle: People have explained what the problem might be, and how to fix it16:15

hitsujiTMOsamuelx: can you chroot to the filesystem and i can tell you how to fix the bug16:17
jinglescafei sent it to Rory.16:17

Rorymotaka2: no what?16:18
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: you can also fix it at the end of the install.16:18
jeniellei installed on my cp version 13.1016:18
Rorymotaka2: You're free to use whatever OS you like16:18
samuelxhitsujiTMO: Rather than muck it up again I was hoping there was a newer image i could use that had the fix.16:18
jinglescafemot aka, ubuntu is good. its free its better than windows 95 I had installed16:18
wilornelHey guys. Yesterday I had trouble setting up Ubuntu alongside Windows 8, so I decided to just use Ubuntu on  that laptop. Problem is, the same error popped up when installing Ubuntu : "grum-efi-amd64-signed failed to install..." . Now, I guess the solution to that problem is to boot my live USB through Legacy mode in order to install Ubuntu in legacy mode. Before doing that.. I had to ask what you guys think and, what exactly UEFI add16:18
samuelxhitsujiTMO: At the end of the install? How?16:18
jeniellethere is a another version 12.0416:18
pfifobekks: no it didnt, you had to use the alternate installer for a long time to get anything special setup16:18
jinglescafeI am teasing about 95!16:19
motaka2Rory:  what should ido?16:19
jinglescafeI made a funny16:19
jinglescafeCops showed up, I need to go16:19
senderosccome si fa il cancelletto?16:19
bekkspfifo: So Ubuntu supported full disc encryption already.16:19
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: when it comes to the the "restart" bit hit <ctrl> + <alt> +<f1>     then you can chroot to the install dir and fix it that way16:19
Rorymotaka2: On the Grub boot menu, select your Ubuntu option and press E to edit the parameters before booting. Scroll down and delete the words "quiet splash" then press Ctrl-X to boot16:19
SASDOEquick question: i was hoping to run a mail server on my ubuntu server, and was hoping to have a service similar to that offered by mailnull, ie having a main "domain name", and sub domains16:19
Guest33550what happened to the standalone installer where you could install and uninstall like a progarm in windows?16:20
samuelxhitsujiTMO: Ah ... open a new virtual term. Is there a list of the chroot commands somewhere?16:20
bekksGuest33550: It is called "synaptic" and you can install it.16:20
Rory!wubi | Guest3355016:20

bekkspfifo: zfs will never be included in the linux kernel due to its license.16:22
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: its the lines after "Mount environment file systems."16:22
samuelxhitsujiTMO: Awesome16:22
samuelxhitsujiTMO: I'm reading through it now. I tried something similar last time but must have missed one of the dev devices16:23
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: obviously replace install to what ever path cd mounted your filesystem as16:23
Guest33550One more thing, will WUBI work with x64?16:23
samuelxhitsujiTMO: After I setup the chroot do I have to manually edit anything for the new initramfs or if I update does the new package have it?16:23
wilornelDoes it really matter if Ubuntu is standalone in UEFI or Legacy mode?16:23
samuelxhitsujiTMO: I vaguely remember someone saying they add to add a module for ohci_usb16:24
bekkswilornel: Ubuntu isnt in those modes at all.16:24
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: you need add an entry to the modules file and update initramfs ....16:24
samuelxhitsujiTMO: ok cool. So add the module manually.16:24
wilornelbekks : from ubuntu's website : you can install Ubuntu in EFI mode or not.16:24
bekkswilornel: Read: "you can install Ubuntu if you computer is in EFI mode or not"16:25

motaka2Rory: it doesnt work16:28
wilornelGuest33550: Actually, I'm reading about it and it seems like Intel started working on it in 199816:28
Rorymotaka2: No, but you will see an error this time hopefully16:28
wilornelGuest33550: only thing is, I don't understand at which level does UEFI work?16:28
motaka2Rory: I dont see any errors16:28
SASDOERory: what email server are you running and how can i create domain names and sub domains easily ?16:28
Guest33550wilornel: UEFI is actually on the hard disk (at least on my win 8 laptop)16:28
RorySASDOE: I'm running Postfix, and I have no idea16:29
bekksSASDOE: the email server is totally unrelated to registering domains, and setting up MX records.16:29
wilornelGuest33550: and it rules the way different parts of the computer interact with eachother?16:29
hitsujiTMOwilornel: uefi is a replacement for BIOS.16:29
Guest33550wilornel: UEFI is like BIOS, Only it supports larger hard drive sizes (larger than 30 TB) and is more flexible16:29
SASDOERory: no i mean i'd have a real domain name, an account and a "sub account", as in account.sub@domain.com16:29
RorySASDOE: Work on getting basic emails set up first16:30
wilornelBIOS is what windows has been created on top of, right?16:30
SASDOERory: could i easily setup something like this with postfix?16:30
Guest33550BIOS is Basic Input Output System16:30

Guest33550macs use UEFI However16:30
wilorneloohh ok16:30
SASDOEi'll give it a try16:30

hitsujiTMOwilornel: such discussion is offtopic here but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface16:31

SASDOERory: yes exactly, and i could block emails to spam.bar@domain.com, or receive emails to new.bar@domain.com instantly as well16:31

pfifohitsujiTMO: if you delete the symlink /etc/resolv.conf and replace it with a normal file, it wont get overwritten on restarts17:23
pytessis it possible to acess any datas in other drive17:23
MrDyneLike LAMP, it runs under www-data user and auto starts on boot.17:23
bekkspytess: If your Windows is gone, you cannot access it anymore. If you just have another disk, you can access the other disk.17:24
bekkspfifo: the more easy way is to configure nm correctly.17:24
trismrwc2: G_SLICE=always-malloc firefox17:24
rwc2trism, k, ill have to try something else17:24
pfifobekks: i dont agree, removing dnsmasq is exponetially harder then deleting a symlink17:25
trismrwc2: does firefox and thunderbird still start and work? if so you can ignore that error, we all get it17:25
hitsujiTMOMrDyne: call the app with: sudo -u <username|id>         or su -c <command> <user>17:25
samuelxhitsujiTMO: Maybe a dumb question but should I do that edit on the live system or the chroot? Same question for restarting networking17:26
trismrwc2: the problem is some people have firefox immediately crash on starting17:26
rwc2trism, firefox doesn't start, no splash screen even17:26
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: ahh, you're still on the live system. what are you needing apt-get for?17:27
rwc2trism, the thunderbird screen asking for sudo password appeared once, but nothing since17:27
samuelxhitsujiTMO: Don't I need to run apt-get to update the system?17:27
samuelxhitsujiTMO: So that I can add the ohci_usb module and fix the initramfs (so cyprtsetup works at boot)17:28
pytessok.bekks.I had installed windows on my c drive17:28
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: you don't need to update the system. 2 secs and i'll find the exact commands17:28
pytessbut i coudl not  access d dvrive from uuntu17:28
pytessso all the data is gone:(17:29
pfifopytess: can you pastebin the output of 'sudo fdisk -l'17:29
samuelxhitsujiTMO: So just add "ohci_usb" to "/etc/initramfs-tools/modules" and then " update-initramfs -u"?17:31
bekkspytess: Did you even try to mount it manually?17:31
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: its ohci_pci17:32
samuelxhitsujiTMO: :D17:32
samuelxhitsujiTMO: So that's it?17:32
hitsujiTMOsamuelx: yup that should be it17:32
bekkspytess: you have a 500G disk and a 4G usb stick?17:32
samuelxhitsujiTMO: ok fingers crossed .... trying it out now17:33
pfifopytess: run 'sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt' and see if your data is in /mnt17:33

pytesspfifo:I am getting speciy the file system type17:35
MrDynecorrection, as another user17:35
pfifopytess: its swap space, not a filesystem. you cant mount it17:36
pfifopytess: you deleted you windows install and all related windows partitions, and alog with that, the data that was on the partitions17:36
rwc2trism, might try that17:36
pytessit says.getting output /dev/sda5 looks like swapspace not mounted.what does that mean actually17:38

pytesshow to create a seperate partiion in ubuntu17:53
chsadoszykotick9: do you have a suggestion on an alternative to GPA?17:54
hitsujiTMOpytess: use gparted is the easiest way, preferably from a live distro17:54
zykotick9chsados: for gui = no.  i'd suggest using the gpg terminal apps... YMMV17:54
chsadosehhh i dont feel comfortable with terminal yet for gpg :(17:55
zykotick9chsados: don't fear the terminal ;)17:55
chsadosjust seems like GPG in terminal requires too many commands - id prefer a nice GUI similar to kleopatra when I was on windows - made things really easy17:56

zykotick9MrDyne: on ubuntu, startx doesn't do much by default.  why are to trying to use it?18:01
wilronelhitsujiTMO: Alright, so you're saying that instead of booting in legacy mode, I should boot in UEFI?18:01
pfifoskinkitten: there you have it, you can upgrade to saucy18:02
MrDynebecause I disabled gui start at boot because when I finish setting up my server again it will be headless.18:02

RoryGuest33553: Can you run the commands specified in this AskUbuntu answer: http://askubuntu.com/a/337154/6296918:03
wilronelWith UEFI, I can boot the live usb alright. With CSM boot, I cannot boot the live USB. I do not want to use UEFI, as Ubuntu fails to install in UEFI mode18:03
wilronelSo I shall select booting in CSM mode, right?18:03
pfifoskinkitten: download the Ubuntu 13.10 CD annd burn it to a cd-r then boot from it and install Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander18:04
wilronelhitsujiTMO: Are you talking about the Usb legacy emulation?18:04
skinkittenwhy? pfifo18:04
hitsujiTMOwilronel: usually under "advanced" or "chipset settings" or the like.                 how exactly is ubuntu failing to install in uefi mode?18:04
hitsujiTMOwilronel: yes. that would be it18:04
pfifoskinkitten: saucy has emacs2418:04

=== paul_ is now known as sacrelicious
hitsujiTMOwilronel: it involves chrooting after that point18:08
MajSlayergot a quick new linux user question, is it a bad idea to install Apache, MySQL ect. as root? should I create a second user to install these programs?18:09
hitsujiTMOpaul_ you need to set it as executable most likely18:09
sacrelicioushitsujiTMO, how do i do that?18:09
wilronelhitsujiTMO: okay so I have only installed GNU/Linux (or is it GNE/Linux?), and then it fails to install grub-efi-amd64-signed. I have to boot and use boot-repair, right? Then I can re-install Ubuntu?18:09
zykotick9MajSlayer: they'll start as root, then quickly change to a different user...18:09
bekksMajSlayer: You cannot install those packages from the Ubuntu repos without root privileges. "sudo apt-get install apache2"18:09
pfifoMajSlayer: you have to install this stuff with the package manager, which requires root privdleges, so no18:09
MrDynesudo service lightdm start worked, thanks!18:10
zykotick9MajSlayer: sorry, you said "install", ya see beeks pfifo above ;)18:10
hitsujiTMOwilronel: what version of ubuntu is this btw?18:10
wilronel12.04 LTS18:10
wilroneland I wanted to keep it this way, too.18:10
hitsujiTMOwilronel: is windows on the machine?18:11
wilronelI tried installing Ubuntu standalone, so it reformated the disk. so no, Windows is not on the machine, I can't boot anything right now.18:11
MajSlayerwell i'm on a dedicated server, i didnt have to sudo anything...18:12
hitsujiTMOwilronel: cool. can you boot the live cd so in uefi mode18:12
wilronelI can't install Ubuntu in Legacy mode?18:12
wilronelI don't WANT uefi, it won't install18:12
MajSlayerand where is this beek pfifo? i dont see the link18:12
hitsujiTMOwilronel: i'm unsure if you can, BUT, since ubuntu is for the most part is installed already we can try finishing the installation manually18:13
wilronelno, it is not installed for the most part. Only GNU/Linux is.18:13
pfifoMajSlayer: ubuntu isnt designed to be run as root, but most ISPs ignore that, you can still run commands with sudo, but since your already root, it is optional18:13
zykotick9pfifo: DON'T use sudo, if you are #18:14
MajSlayerwell the problem i'm having is .php software doesn't want to allow file movements because root owns all the folders18:14
pfifozykotick9: DONT tell me not todo something with out giving an explanation18:15
hitsujiTMOwilronel: wait, slightly confused here, when you say gnu/linux what are you reffering to exactly?18:15
zykotick9pfifo: if you are root already, using sudo is redundant (might lead to issues as well)18:15
tgm4883why are WE putting random WORDS in all caps?18:15
pfifo!chown | MajSlayer18:15
ubottuMajSlayer: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions18:15

MajSlayeraye well its like 40,000 files18:16
wilronelhitsujiTMO: If I re-try to install Ubuntu, it will ask if I want to replace GNU/Linux or install it next to GNU/Linux.18:16
wilronelhitsujiTMO: Before trying to install Ubuntu, "Windows 8" was standing where "GNU/Linux" is at the moment18:17

hitsujiTMOwilronel: ah ok.18:17
cejixo3hello guys18:17
cejixo3xen pci passtrough ???18:17
hitsujiTMOwilronel: the thing is, grub is the last thing to get installed during the installation, so you can just manually install it and you should be good to go18:17
wilronelhitsujiTMO: Depends when. Sometimes grub installs after 3 minutes, sometimes after 30mins into the installation process18:18
MajSlayerokay let me read about it, like i said i'm new, and never made a second user on this server. so i'm half way thinking i should do a full reinstall on it, create a second user18:18
zykotick9cejixo3: i'd suggest using alis (/msg ubottu alis for details) to find a xen channel.  that's VERY specialized support question.18:18
hitsujiTMOwilronel: no grub is always last18:18
wilronelhitsujiTMO: well... not it's happening after 3 mins18:19
MajSlayerseems root owns everything, and the only way to fix the problems is to set every to 77718:19
wilronelnow it's happening after 3 mins*18:19
MajSlayerand i know thats a bad idea.lol18:19
wilronelhitsujiTMO: let me double-check.18:19
pfifoMajSlayer: i would go with something like 'chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www'18:20
MajSlayerthanks man18:20
hitsujiTMOwilronel: it only takes a few minutes to install ubuntu. just boot the live in uefi mode and we can have a look18:20
MajSlayerthat is the main area i'm having problems with i'll give it a go18:20
wilronelhitsujiTMO: it takes about 30 minutes, right?18:20
MajSlayeri'll ssh into the server now and give it a try18:21
hitsujiTMOwilronel: wha? no. i've never seen an ubuntu install take longer than 10 mins18:21

wilronelhitsujiTMO: Well I had many times where after about 10 minutes, it would fail because of grub. and once it failed for the same reason but after 40mins..18:22
hitsujiTMOwilronel: unless maybe its a full install from the mini.iso18:22
wilronelhitsujiTMO: no, I'm not using any mini.iso18:22
wilronelhitsujiTMO: okay, apparently you are right. I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed right now18:22
wilronelso, how do I fix it?18:22
wilronelhitsujiTMO: boot-repaid?18:23

richard305Rory: okay back -- modprobe is still saying nvidia isn't found18:52
zykotick9Kurvivor: fyi, this is obviously fat/ntfs - SO, it's ALL determined by how it gets mounted!  you can't apply the typical *nix (POSIX really) permissions to either fat or ntfs, so the regular tools in ubuntu aren't going to be able to help.  check on how the drive is being mounted.  sorry i don't use either of those filesystems (ok, sometimes fat32 on removable media) so i don't know the details.  good luck.18:55
hitsujiTMOKurvivor: can you pastebin the output of: mount             while the share is mounted ofc18:57

fixmypc956the /home directory on the usb has nothing for the OS unless i put something in there20:14
bngIs it safe to use disk with bad sectors for no critical data? The disk knows about them so it won't use them, am I right?20:15
compdocbng, reallocated sectors?20:15
pfifofixmypc956: you might want to mount the partitions somewhere else, this is the MAIN IDEA of what im trying to tell you, understand this fist20:15
apofisbng: few bad sectors hmm... in a short time you should expect more ;)20:15
compdocbng, the bad sectors tend to keep growing20:16
bngcompdoc: smart reports reallocated sectors, my LVM commands report stuff like "read failed after 0 of 4096 at 123456789"20:16
Random832back up your data asap20:17
bekksbng: Your disk is broken, you should replace it as soon as possible.20:17
richard305Rory: thanks for trying to help20:17
morten771is there a quick command to check what desktop environment one is using?20:18
bngapofis, compdoc I know it won't last, that is not a problem. I am just asking, will the system use only healthy space, since it know s about the bad sectors?20:18
morten771so one know if it is gnome2, gnome3, cinnamon, mate, xfce, kde that is running?20:18
bekksmorten771: No, there is no such command.20:19
morten771ok. could have been nice :-)20:19
fixmypc956pfifo: ok so I somehow created a /home directory on the partition I created on the HD, and it seems that I have /home on the usb drive which has ubuntu....how do I get rid of /home on the usb drive20:19
zykotick9morten771: check your DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID= in "env" from terminal [I'M NOT SURE IT'LL HELP!]20:19
morten771so I guess one have to sort of probe for each, like first run a command that say "yes" if it gnome2 etc20:19
morten771aha ok I check20:20
bngapofis, compdoc I have only 3 reallocated sectors, the disk could last for non-critical work I think, I'd just like to know whether LVM will stupidly use the three sectors with "input/output error" or not20:20
pfifofixmypc956: i usually copy the contents of /home from the old location to the new location. then once Im comfortable that all my data exists in the new location, i delere /home all together and create a new empty directory to mount my home partition on20:21
bngI suppose this message from lvcreate as well as vgcreate must be because of reallocated  sector, right? "read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error"20:21
zykotick9morten771: if the above doesn't help, you could try "sudo update-alternatives --config x-window-manager" but again NOT SURE IT'LL HELP!20:21
fixmypc956pfifo: I have nothing on original /home, unless something was installed with the initial installation...I am sure I created /home on the hard drive which I made one whole partition20:24
bekksbng: You have reallocated sectors. The disk is going to die.20:24
bekksbng: I wouldnt use it at all, not even for trash :)20:24
pfifofixmypc956: I cant say for sure what the install process puts in /home, but im pretty certian it puts some important stuff there20:25

fixmypc956pfifo: oh crap!!!20:29
fixmypc956pfifo: what does this mean, 'Could not chdir to home directory /home/rodriguez: No such file or directory'?20:29
gordonjcpfixmypc956: it means you've created a user "rodriguez" but not created a home directory for them20:30
pfifofixmypc956: there is no such file or directory20:30
jhutchinsfixmypc956: That, or you created the user and home directory while something was mounted to /home, and now it's not mounted.20:31
pfifojhutchins: you got that backwards20:31
gordonjcppfifo: not necessarily20:31
jhutchinsfixmypc956: Given that ubuntu makes it a bit difficult to create a user without creating the homedir, what I said (which is not backwards) is more likely.20:31
gordonjcpfixmypc956: anyway20:31
gordonjcpfixmypc956: how did you create the user "rodriguez"?20:32
pfifogordonjcp: i know, for sure, his user was created while NOT mounted and now it IS mounted20:32
gordonjcppfifo: okay, and how do you know that?20:32
jhutchinspfifo: You are correct, that is also possible.20:32
pfifogordonjcp: cause i gave him the line he added to his fstab20:32
jhutchinsgordonjcp: If you mount an empty partition over a partition with data, the mount point will appear empty.20:32

DEagleaccording to this, there is https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX20:35

DEaglebekks: right, and I'm running 2 X's20:36
DEagleone in tty7, the other in 820:36

hitsujiTMOprawnsalad: is it by anychance empty because you do not have permission to read it?22:24
pfiforichwestcoast: why not just buy a VPS and do it yourself?22:24
prawnsaladhitsujiTMO: its owned by root, has read access for its own user, and im logged in as root22:24

DreamPCsHey guys, I need a bit of help with installation. Someone I know accidentally used dd to write an iso to an internal hard drive instead of a usb drive.22:27
DreamPCsI'm trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 but I can't get past the partitioninght.22:27
hitsujiTMOprawnsalad: that file shoulf be 600 not 644 ... weird. try deleting it and see if it starts populating22:27
maujhsnCan anybody tell me who maintains "ubuntu-restricted-extras" now that medubuntu no longer is involved?22:28
pfifoDreamPCs: what do you need help with?22:28
DreamPCspfifo I'm sorry I'm trying to get the error message again22:28
DreamPCsJust a sec22:28
prawnsaladhitsujiTMO: nothing as yet..22:29
hitsujiTMOprawnsalad: it might need a reboot to start it writing again22:30
prawnsaladhitsujiTMO: is there a service i can simply restart instead? or does it actually need a whole system restart..22:30
prawnsaladhitsujiTMO: oh nvm, rsyslog service22:31
prawnsaladit now has entries :)22:31
prawnsaladthank you!22:31
DreamPCs"Can't have a partition outside the disk!"22:31
DreamPCsThat's the error I get after selecting the hard drive to install onto.22:31
hitsujiTMOprawnsalad: keep an eye incase it happens again. whatever caused it might still be messing up22:31
DreamPCsBefore the drive was unallocated space (reported by gparted) so I created a partition table (msdos) and formated it to ext422:32
DreamPCsNow whenever I try to install Ubuntu, I get that error. I have no idea how to proceed.22:32
prawnsaladhitsujiTMO: ok will do. i just have a crashed db box right now and had to check for errors. if it does happen again, where would i even start to find out whats going on?22:32
hitsujiTMODreamPCs: can you tell me the output of: sudo fdisk -l22:33
pfifoDreamPCs: go into gparted and create a new partition table, and leave it all unallocated this time, then when installing, manually partition.22:33
maujhsnubottu   Tell me who maintains "ubuntu-restricted-extras"!22:33

smaudetztane, got any suggestions then?22:41
DreamPCsDamn pfifo I think that letting the install do the formating solved the issue. It appears to be installing now.22:41
DreamPCsWhy would manually created the partition beforehand in gparted be a bad thing?22:42
DaemonicApathyBad formatting?22:43
DreamPCsDo you mean on the software or on me? All I did was create a ext4 partition with all default options22:43
DreamPCsNo special partitioning or resizing done.22:44
hitsujiTMODreamPCs: the installer isn't the best when it comes to figuring out free space when there's multiple drives involved. it was prob trying to create a partition rather than use the existing partition22:44
DaemonicApathyIn that case, it's probably just a user-unfriendly setting in the installation process.22:44
DaemonicApathyWhat hitsujiTMO said.22:44
=== json is now known as Guest30454
hitsujiTMODreamPCs: the partition you created is ok. there's nothing wrong with it. its the installer than can be finicky22:44
DreamPCslol that's crazy. Well either way I'm glad it worked.22:44
DreamPCsThanks for all your help, I was talking with Google for hours on this one.22:45
DaemonicApathy<3 ext422:45
pfifouhh, ext4 > 3 last time I checked, and you have your terms backwards, so syntax error too22:48
hitsujiTMOpfifo i think he meant 3 ext4 drives > DaemonicApathy22:48

smaudetpfifo, pretty sure he was saying he liked ext4, not that ext3 was better22:52
smaudetztane, so if I can't remove inodes...then what do I do about bad ones?22:53
Muellismaudet: I would expect fsck to take care of any "bad" inodes.23:01

arielsanfloi am from colombia23:06
smaudetMuelli, hmm ok I'll try that.23:06
arielsanflomy english is so so23:06
smaudetMuelli, otherwise (specifically) its a problem with encryptfs, which seems to like to randomly corrupt, I guess I should read up on that as well.23:07
Muellismaudet: how do you know?23:07
smaudetMuelli, well the problems have to do with ecryptfs because the logs which inform me of the problem tell me this as well23:15
richard305anyone know a place in boston (MA) that's really good with ubuntu machines?23:16
smaudetMuelli, also, perhaps unrelated, but these same issues are causing the system to crash23:16
Muellismaudet: what do the logs say?23:16
smaudet'Valid eCryptfs headers not found in file header region or xattr region, inode 14958439'23:16
