SteakumzIs Steam working well? I was excited to see Steam available now00:00
SteakumzI'm also loving Libre Office.00:00
SteakumzI'm very curious about LinuxMint00:01
nPeglerso... FAQ explains that in order to get the on screen keyboard to show up, you have to relog... It is displaying now on the login screen but what is the default username and password for LiveCD so that I can finally start the install?00:01
gmachine_24uPegler, there are no default usernames or passwords00:02
mrpizzafacenPegler: i beleive it is username and password00:02
xanguanPegler: try ubuntu / ubuntu por user / password00:02
nPeglerthanks... ubuntu no password00:02
gmachine_24no users etc on a livecd00:03
=== waltercool_ is now known as waltercool
=== waltercool is now known as waltercoo
gmachine_24the install will ask you for a username and password, if that's what you mean00:03
=== waltercoo is now known as waltercool
nPeglerno I was having to relog after turning on the on-screen keyboard in the Accessiblity Options... I needed to do this in order to actually be able to start the install to create a username and password00:04
nPegleron the live cd the username is ubuntu with no password00:04
Shamrock13nPegler, it looks like my computer is only recognizing my HDMI port for sound instead of the internal speakers.00:05
Shamrock13what the heck!00:05
nPegleroh? it could be that ubuntu is defaulting to the HDMI out as the primary audio card...00:06
petesterHi.  I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an old iMac (removing OSX all together) but I get a screen asking me to select CD-ROM Boot type.  The keyboards don't work on this screen (I've tried a non-mac keyboard as well)00:06
nPeglermaybe check in the Audio settings to see if you can change the default output device?00:06
petesterAny ideas?00:06
SteakumzI'm new to IRC, how do I see a complete list of the rooms available?00:06
Shamrock13There's no possible way.00:06
Shamrock13It isn't showing speakers. It is only showing digital and analog audio.00:07

thom_rit might have been a bad disk00:10
quidnuncikonia: That is my problem but it happens inside a docker image and I want to confirm it happens on a regular system00:10
thom_rpetester, what version of Ubuntu were you trying to install?00:11
petesterlatest 64 bit00:11
thom_rok, how old is your Mac?00:11
petester2008 i think00:11
petesternot entirely sure00:11
petesterI can tell you later if you really want00:12
thom_rare you sure that your Mac is a 64 bit?00:12
petestergood point00:12
petesterI know it's a duo at least00:12
thom_rit might be a 32 bit. I don't have any real experience with a mac though. I could be wrong.00:12
petesterI'll try a 32 bit version.  I honestly hadn't thought of that00:12
SteakumzI'm sorry to ask this again, but how do I see a room list on this IRC server using Empathy?00:13
=== ss55 is now known as sebastiansam55
thom_rdo you have the mac close by?00:13
petesterI'm pretty sure core 2 duos are 64 bit though, am I wrong?00:13
thom_rI don't know.00:13
nPeglerwhat makes a system either 32-bit or 64-bit is the amount of RAM00:13
nPegler32-bit is 4 GB and less00:13
nPegler64-bit is more than 4 GB00:13
thom_rnPegler, it's the cpu00:13
petesternPegler is half right.  A lot of 64 bit capable chips wont go full 64 without the right ram00:14
nPeglerfor the OS it's the RAM capabilities... if you have more than 4 GB of RAM, you have to use a 64-bit OS... if not, it only recognized 4 GB00:14
bekksnPegler: thats not true. PAE supports more than 4GB RAM on 32bit.00:14
icerootbekks: but not for a single process00:15
awshi world !00:15
bekksiceroot: ack00:15
icerootpetester: core2duo is amd64, so 64bit yes00:15
petestericeroot: thought so, thanks :)00:15
thom_rpetester, do you have your mac close by?00:15
icerootpetester: if the cpu supports amd64 you should always use amd64, does not matter how many ram you have00:16
petesterthom_r: yeah, it's still on the same screen.  Downloading ubuntu now to try a usb install00:16
icerootpetester: everything higher then 1gb ram will have a benefit of 64bit00:16

apz665Hi everyone03:22
apz665Can someone tell me please whats the relation between vm_enough_memory() and out_of_memory().03:22
Beldardark1, I think I would use a simpler install to figure out tars, in general a tar install is not needed in but few cases.03:23
marienzapz665: context? these are not libc functions03:23
dark1OK, so once have java running, i d/l freenet, this one a .jar, managed to unpack it, now what (no deb file either)03:24
apz665@marienz I am reading about OOM in linux and I understand that when checking available memory, the number of required pages is passed as a parameter to vm_enough_memory(). Unless the system administrator has specified that the system should overcommit memory, the mount of available memory will be checked. If the total number of pages added here is sufficient for the request, vm_enough_memory() returns true to the caller. If false is ret03:25
Ben64dark1: you don't unpack a jar... you have java run it03:25
apz665@marienz In all this where and when does out_of_memory gets called03:25
nearstdark1, java -jar <jar file>03:25
NictraSaviosHello, how can I view how much VRAM is available to my system, or if my dedicated graphics card is working properly (Its an Optimus card)03:25
dark1oh hell, why is this tuff so complicated, damn - windows is easier !03:25
Beldarleaning is always tough03:26
apz665marienz: the source code of vm_enough_memory() doesnt call out_of_memory()03:26
androidfr33kIM trying to run/install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit onto a PC that has a Gigabyte Motherboard with EFI bios.  I see to be running into some problems.  Its starts to boot I choose try ubuntu then end up with a black screen03:26
SchrodingersScatdark1: you can also try a -console after that, as per freenet page here: https://freenetproject.org/download.html#unix03:26
glitsj16Ziber: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SkypeTroubleshooting might help03:26
Ben64dark1: it really isn't that complicated, you're making it much more difficult than is needed03:26
Beldar!14.04 | androidfr33k03:26
ubottuandroidfr33k: Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) will be the 20th release of Ubuntu.  See the announcement at http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/1295 for more info. support in #ubuntu+103:26
androidfr33kits not official?03:27
dark1yep - that is where I started, to find a dummies guide to using the console, list of commands and what they do etc would be usefull, I am not a programmer03:27
Beldarandroidfr33k, 14.04 is a development, not really a stable install.03:27
nearstdark1, im not programmer either :)03:27
androidfr33kno wonder03:27
androidfr33ksame with 14.10?03:27
NictraSaviosandroidfr33k, It comes out in April, until then 13.10 is our darling regular release, and 12.04 is the LTS.03:28
SchrodingersScatdark1: I mean the command you are looking for might be: java -jar freenet_installer_you_downloaded.jar -console03:28
Beldarandroidfr33k, there is no 14.10, 13.10 is the latest release03:28
dark1Ok, where might I type that command03:28
NictraSaviosandroidfr33k, The numbers actually tell you when its released. 13.10 <  2013, October (The 10th month), so 14.04 is released on 2014, April. :D03:28
nearst!terminal | dark103:28
ubottudark1: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal03:28
SchrodingersScatdark1: wherever you downloaded the jar file.03:29
apz665Can someone tell me please whats the relation between vm_enough_memory() and out_of_memory().03:29
androidfr33kI never noticed that thanks03:29
marienzapz665: again, context? I don't have a linux source tree handy. What you're reading might well be pseudocode.03:29
apz665marienz: source code: https://www.kernel.org/doc/gorman/html/understand/understand030.html03:30
dark1Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal      thank you, that is what I am after03:30
Ben64dark1: the only thing you need the terminal for is for the command "java"03:31
SchrodingersScatBen64: but you can do everything in terminal03:31
Ben64indeed you can03:31
apz665marienz: https://www.kernel.org/doc/gorman/html/understand/understand016.html this is the text03:31
dark1I appreciate what the terminal does, like the command lione in windows, I jsut want to learn how to use it03:32
NictraSaviosandroidfr33k, Not a problem, :)03:32
marienzapz665: I'd have to read more code, but my understanding is it's up to the caller of vm_enough_memory to call out_of_memory (if it really does need the memory)03:32
Ben64dark1: it seemed like you just want freenet to work, but you want to learn the terminal too?03:32
nearstdark1, it far better than cmd in windows if u know what todo with it :)03:32
NictraSaviosdark1, Here is a good book on it: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8D5Ml-blW7ZbDlUTHhIYnJGSFk/edit03:33
dark1getting freenet to work was probelm No1, but I want to get my head around the terminal thingi, looks useful and I want to be less naieve :)03:33
NictraSaviosdark1,  A better link to the same free book: http://danvac.webzde.cz/TLCL-13.07.pdf03:34
marienzapz665: no, that's not quite right. IIUC then operations that'll end up allocating memory eventually can call vm_enough_memory up front, and return ENOMEM or similar if there isn't. Otherwise if that memory is eventually allocated the code doing the allocating will call out_of_memory if it can't do its job03:34
MarGul Hi! When I put a test index.php (<html><body><?php echo "This works!"; ?></body></html>) in my webroot(runnig ubuntu server 12.04 and nginx) the text gets shown properly and all looks good. But when I then upload (through fileZilla, binary transfermode) my own index.php nothing gets shown. Its just a blank page. Anyone have any suggestions were to start troubleshooting?03:34
apz665marienz: then in that case we cant really control when OOM kicks in, it will kick in whenever out_of_memory would be called ie whenever vm_enough_memory will return ENOMEM03:34
SchrodingersScatdark1: bash is neat: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide03:34
marienzapz665: note the bit about overcommit (you'll want to read up on that if you don't already know what it is). That's why those two functions can be called quite a ways away from each other.03:34
dark1OK, now we're cooking with fire  - thank you !03:34
nearst<3 bash03:35
marienzapz665: in an ideal world, if you have overcommit disabled then code that needs memory will always have it, so out_of_memory never gets called03:35
cppCzarcan anyone help me triple boot on a macbook pro03:35
marienzapz665: in an overcommitted world, you can indeed not control when out_of_memory occurs. That's more or less the unfortunate truth of overcommit.03:35
marienzapz665: (and linux allows overcommit out of the box, with some applications more or less relying on it to function in machines with a reasonable amount of memory)03:36
ryan_461I want to change my freenode password but I don't know what "key" represents in /msg NickServ SETPASS <account> <key> <newpass>.Can someone tell me?03:36

marienzryan_461: use /msg nickserv set password blah03:37
SchrodingersScatI've had weird issues where moving files within an ntfs partition really makes a copy.  Maybe i need 'mv foo bar ; sync'? it's weird, serves me right for keeping ntfs around.03:37
apz665marienz yes I am aware of over commit concept, if it is disabled then we can in a way control when OOM kicks in03:37
marienzryan_461: (but yes, that's a #freenode question. The "key" is when you reset a password you forgot, and got it emailed to you)03:37
MeluI am running Ubuntu 12.04. When I login to root and does a ulimit -a, I can see that the resources of root user is capped. I want to unlimit the number of open files cap. For that I did 'ulimit -H -n' unlimited as a root user. However I got an error as  "bash: ulimit: open files: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted". What is the issue here that prevents the root to set the limits?03:38
marienzapz665: right. In that case you should not hit out_of_memory, as far as I know (because all code that'll cause allocations checks vm_enough_memory and errors out if there's not enough)03:38
ryan_461Thank-you nearest and marienz03:38
=== Mars is now known as Guest91280
marienzapz665: IIUC those extra checks in out_of_memory are there to somewhat mitigate the badness that'd otherwise occur if code calls out_of_memory over and over while the system isn't out of memory (the OOM killer would kill everything without the caller making progress)03:39
plutoIs there anything that can be done speed up ubuntu live with persistence?  I created it with unetbootin but it is painfully slow.03:39
nearstMelu, u did try with sudo ulimit -a ?03:39
Melu<nearst> I did the ulimit as a root user. I believe that is enough03:40
flosNictraSavios, thanks for your book, it's nice!03:40
apz665marienz this all makes sense except your last comment; if code calls out_of_memory over and over while the system isn't out of memory (the OOM killer would kill everything without the caller making progress). Why would out-of_memory() be called out again and again?03:41
marienzapz665: because of broken code (that tries to do something that's vaguely related to but not exactly the same as allocating memory, it fails, so it calls out_of_memory and tries again)03:41
NictraSaviosflos, Thanks, be sure to thank the guy who wrote it too :).03:41
flosNictraSavios, sure! :)03:42
marienzapz665: I don't have a linux source tree around, but it might be interesting to search for callers of out_of_memory and see how many there are03:42
marienzapz665: and the other reason is that the system might need to wait for swapout or the like to occur (as the text you linked to says). All code calling out_of_memory checking that and waiting a bit probably wasn't considered sane.03:43
flosapz665, maybe you can set the 'panic_on_oom' kernel parameter, and capture a vmcore for analysis03:43
TheLordOfTimewhat package contains add-apt-repository?03:43
nearstMelu, ubuntu not support root user for security concern. use sudo instead. anyway. try look at /etc/security/limit.conf03:43
TheLordOfTimefound it03:44
marienzapz665: (so instead of calling code having to wait, out_of_memory just won't do anything if it was already called recently, or it can determine that waiting would suffice)03:44
Melu<nearst> limits.conf does not have any rule that caps the resource of the root user. I did not understand "ubuntu not support root user for security concern" . What did you mean by that?03:45
apz665marienz: So IIUC OS code which is responsible of allocating memory to a process executes vm_enough_memory() and depending on over commit calls out_of_memory03:45
marienzapz665: is this just curiousity or are you debugging something? If you're debugging something, note the documentation you're reading may not fully match current code :)03:45
apz665marienz: weekend fun, not debugging anything :)03:45
nearst!sudo | Melu03:46
ubottuMelu: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo03:46
apz665marienz: where can I find relevant matching information03:46
marienzapz665: IIUC if the process wants memory it calls something like brk() or mmap(), which'll call vm_enough_memory, which in the non-overcommit case won't let the process have any if the system is out (-ENOMEM). Otherwise the system gets virtual memory, which isn't necessarily mapped yet. If mapping it later fails, the kernel calls out_of_memory()03:47
marienzerr, the *process* gets virtual memory03:48
marienzapz665: for fully authoritative documentation you'd have to dig around in the linux source tree, I think03:48
Melu<ubottu> You cannot run ulimit as sudo, since ulimit is a bash inbuilt.03:48
apz665marienz: this all makes sense, thanks for helping me out here, wasnt getting much help from google on this one really03:49
marienzapz665: don't take my words as gospel! I think I'm mostly correct here but I'm no kernel hacker03:49
apz665marienz: point noted03:49

NictraSaviospluto, Putting it on a USB is about the best you can do. Remember that the entire thing has to be committed to RAM (So maybe faster RAM?). You could possibly alter some services and such, but not much can be done due to the nature of the Live CD.04:11
NictraSaviospluto, A faster USB could also help. One with USB3.0 would be pretty good.04:12
plutoAre there any tricks for example04:12
plutoI noticed when I did debian and created a persistence partion with the persistence.conf it seemed faster than unetbootin's casper-rw file inside fat3204:13
plutoOr perhaps write on shutdown or something04:14
plutoIt's very very fast with no persistence04:14
NictraSaviospluto, It sounds to me like your USB is slow then, but I am by no means an expert at all.04:15
plutoNo worries I'm not either04:15
NictraSaviosIf anyone knows more about this, then please chime in.04:15
plutoJust spent quite a few hours trying to make it faster04:15
flospluto, how about change another usb port?04:17
interdpthI have 12.04 installed, can I update to 13.10 from within ubuntu?04:17
NictraSaviosinterdpth, You'll have to upgrade to 13.04, and then from 13.04, to 13.10.04:17
interdpthah okay04:17
NictraSaviosinterdpth, Er, from 12.04 to 12.10, then 13.04, then 13.10.04:17
plutoflos tried that too =\04:18
interdpththanks :D04:18
interdpthgonna go find some links for that04:18
NictraSaviospluto, Out of curiosity, why do you need a very fast liveCD?04:18
plutoNictraSavios, it doesn't need to be very fast just responsive.  I'm going to teach a class on software development and the labs don't have linux (I know) so I was going to buy a bunch of flash drives and drop them in the back and let students take the keys home with them to work on their own inevitably windows machines.04:20
NictraSaviosinterdpth, Honestly the offical recommendation for a jump like that is a reinstall (Upgrade from LiveCD if it gives you the option), but that is up to you to decide.04:20
interdpthI'll try the upgrade from livecd04:20
interdpthI do need more experience so I'll bite the bullet with that04:20
plutoIt can take 5-10 minutes to install just apache2 with the usb04:20
plutoanother 5-10 for mysql-server04:20

NictraSaviospluto, take a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization. You may be able to preinstall apache and mysql04:21
plutoflos, it will vary since the students take them home with themselves04:21
plutopluto, I'm doing that with uck this very second =)04:22
flospluto, the usb chipset i mean is the chipset of your usb disk.04:22

plutoI'm thinking of preinstalling apache etc... and having just persistent home dir's04:22
plutoflos its a kingston dtse9 I'm afraid I don't know the chipsets04:23
KI7MTpluto, You may want to look into the OEM install as well, you can setup the image how you like, e.g. install packages etc  .. this is a bit old, but vaild I think: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ubuntu_OEM_Installer_Overview04:23
NictraSaviospluto, is XAMPP on windows an option? (Not really Ubuntu support, sorry for the OT)04:23

plutoNictraSavios, it probably is but inevitably a PITA04:24
=== timrc is now known as timrc-afk
NictraSaviospluto, I agree haha.04:24
plutoWow thanks everyone!04:24
plutoKI7MT, Ill check that out04:25
KI7MTpluto, thenonece you have one USB key the way you want it, just dd from one to the other.04:25
plutoflos, I used unetbootin because that only works for windows I think04:25
flospluto, second, you can check your usb disk's chipset with this tool: http://xiazai.zol.com.cn/detail/43/424414.shtml <--- it's a Chinese website.04:25
plutoKI7MT, is there another way =)04:25
NictraSaviospluto, Ubuntu comes with a USB installed by default actually.04:25
plutoflos thanks a bunch that might actually help04:25
NictraSaviosUSB installer*04:26
NictraSaviospluto, Search for "startup disk" in the unity menu.04:26
KI7MTpluto, lots of ways really, another way would be pre-seed, but that's a bit complicated for what your after I think.04:26
plutooh I run debian not ubuntu04:26
flospluto, and the tool can produce a detailed report of your usb disk, so that we can know your usb clearly.04:26
plutoBut debian makes it hard (for newbies) to get the firmware-linux package04:27
plutoGranted its only adding non-free but it will blow peoples minds04:27
flospluto, for those tools, they should need a windows.04:28
bsmith093i'm wget-ing a bunch of files from a list. is there a way to number them automatically, in the ordr they were downloaded04:28
plutoI want to strongly discourage windows use.  I'm aware of how that sounds in an #ubuntu IRC chan04:28
KI7MTbsmith093, not sure I understand numbering ? as in the order they are DL or what?04:30
bsmith093KI7MT: yes, exactly04:30
flospluto, i know.. but i could not found a tool which can get a full report of a usb disk under Linux... as all usb producer distribute their mass production tools under windows...04:30
lotuspsychjeflos: what kind of tool are you looking for?04:31
NictraSaviospluto, You could do what my 3rd year engineering proff did... find Linux only software and tell us to dual boot, or only use Ubuntu, or accept an F.04:32
NictraSaviospluto, Although the ethics of that is questionable, it worked XD.04:32
floslotuspsychje, me? for example, you can change the usb chipset's mode and do the mass production.04:32
KI7MTbsmith093, try some sed one liners, like sed = filename.txt | sed filename.txt 'N;s/\n/\t/'  .. ask ing the sed / awk room, should be pretty easy.04:32
plutoNictraSavios, I used cloud9 last semester (way way way too slooooooooow) and I had a student get VERY mad he had to install Google Chrome on his macbook to get it to work.04:33
plutoAnother reason the usb live would be idea.  I could just give him a look like O_o04:33
lotuspsychjeflos: not sure if i've seen something like that yet, tryed testdisk maybe?04:33
ptuladharbsmith093, you can sort by timestamp and use sed one-liner for numbering.04:33
xinyiFriends how are you?04:33
bsmith093ptuladhar: how?04:34
lotuspsychjexinyi: hello, what can we do for you?04:34
xinyiI am a new ubuntukylin04:34
xinyiSounder is founded...04:34
ptuladharbsmith093, use 'ls -1t' for sorting newest download first04:35
ptuladharbsmith093, then you can use simple bash loop to start appending numbering at the end of the file.04:37

mdihhi guys, when can we exactly say that the iostat results are high?04:50
NictraSaviosmdih, When they are either above the average, or in the top 25%/10% depending on your definition of "high".04:51
KI7MTexactly, depends on load and what its doing, server desktop etc.04:52
OerHeksShamrock13, sound does not work or just the subwoofer:?04:52
Shamrock13I installed Bumblebee and the Nvidia drivers which I assume took precedent over my speakers because only digital/analog sound is showing and not speakers.04:53
Shamrock13I've tried getting alsa installed again correctly, but I'm really not having any luck whatsoever.04:54
Shamrock13I don't want to get rid of Bumblebee since it is properly switching between discrete and integrated graphics.04:54
mdih@NictraSavios, first off i noticed this in /proc/loadavg ( which i think just similar with the one output in uptime right?) values are about 32.01 33.81. 30.19 for the first 304:55
mdihthese are high right?04:56
mdihand please correct me if i'm wrong. but /proc/loadavg does not only inform about CPU right?04:56
somsipmdih: unless you have high numbers of multiple cores, it's high04:57
babinlonstonWhat the samba client package in linux mint ?04:57
NictraSaviosmdih, To be fully honest, I know nothing about io load averages. I thought you were comparing your values for benchmarking purposes, and I was suggesting you compare against google-ed averages.04:57
mdihjust 4 :(04:57
somsipmdih: horribly high then04:58
KI7MTyeah that's three cores at stupid high levels.04:58

KI7MTFou, It really depends on the services you provide, if your serving up mostly static data, Ng may be faster, not always.05:43
KI7MTFou, if you really want to crank it down on render times have a looky here: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/05:44

I have a directory that is owned by another user, with group ownership as a group that I am a member of...  permissions are 644 of all files, and the sticky bit is set, yet I get a permission denied on access..... am I misunderstanding what the sticky bit is?06:00

xantharow can i run my windows 7 to linux without having to reboot to use it ? kind of like switch instantly?06:11
somsipphunyguy: folder permissions should be 77X, folder should be chomd g+s. umask should allowyou to create 66X files by default, and that should do it. Is that how it looks?06:11

KI7MTand if he's not in say group1 as indicated above, he can't mod the files.06:13

ola5means if he is searching06:32
somsipola5: you cannot hide anything from root06:32

ishanyxdon't put important private info on a computer where you can't trust the administrator06:33

ola5after child uses computer06:34
ola5if child is root then06:34
ishanyxif it's a little kid, they probably don't need root06:35

ianorlinyou could use an external hard drive and unomunt it06:36
somsipola5: you are building security upside down06:36
ianorlinbut not for parental controls06:36
ola5but security will be in hand of parents only06:36
ishanyxthen the parents need to be root, not the kid06:36
ola5child will not know06:36

ola5child is root06:37

Viking667could always put the child into a chroot environment, or whatever the modern equivalent is06:37

AmjadHey guys. I have a problem.07:12
AmjadI installed Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 (not using WUBI)07:12
Amjadand I want to remove it now07:12
AmjadHow do I go about it?07:12
BeldarAmjad, Remove ubuntu?07:13
AmjadRight now I get the GRUB screen when I boot, to choose which OS I want to boot to07:13
somsipAmjad: ISTR you need to reinstall something off the Windows boot disk.07:13
AmjadYeah, Ubuntu. I'm having some issues with it. Apparently I didn't create a big enough partition for it07:13
BeldarAmjad, do you have a W7 recovery or install disc/usb to reload the windows boot to the mbr?07:14
NictraSaviosAmjad, You can make the partition bigger easily.07:14
AmjadI think I have the Windows 7 ISO, and I could create a bootable pendrive. A recovery install should restore the MBR, right?07:14
Amjadguess I could, but don't have a lot of space on the hdd atm so I thought I'd remove it for now..07:15
NictraSaviosAmjad, Boot into the LiveCD, start a program called gParted, and follow http://gparted.org/display-doc.php?name=help-manual#gparted-resize-partition07:15
BeldarAmjad, Not sure, I would just make the recovery disc in windows to be covered just in case.07:15
AmjadWhich live cd?07:15
NictraSaviosAmjad, You can also shrink windows with the same proccess.07:15
NictraSaviosAmjad, The one you used to install Ubuntu.07:15
AmjadThe thing is I don't have a functional CD drive atm :|07:16
NictraSaviosAmjad, Pendrive Linux and a USB will do the trick then07:16
AmjadMy new motherboard doesn't support IDE, and I never got around to getting a SATA optical drive07:16
NictraSaviosAmjad, Its also your only option for a windows reinstall then as well, you'll need a windows ISO and a flash dive.07:16
NictraSaviosAmjad, Or , as Beldar said, you *might* be able to create a recovery disk in windows.07:17
AmjadHmm, ok07:18
AmjadSo do I need to create a recovery disk or a windows installation disk would be enough?07:18
BeldarAmjad, Not sure if W7 allows you to make a iso of the recovery to put on a usb is all, W8 does.07:18
NictraSaviosAmjad, A windows installation disk is enough.07:18
nearsthello good ppl07:18
Ben64might want to ask windows specific questions in ##windows07:18
AmjadI thought installation disk has an option to repair an installation07:18
NictraSavios!chat | nearst07:19
ubottunearst: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!07:19
AmjadSo, could you run me through the steps again? First I should attempt a repair install, right? To restore the MBR..07:19
BeldarAmjad, The repair will not remove grub you just run a command in the terminal on the booted install disc.07:19
AmjadShould I remove grub before or after the repair?07:20
BeldarAmjad, Yeah fix the boot first so you go straight to windows .07:20
AmjadSo 1. Repair 2. Remove GRUB07:20
AmjadWhat next?07:20
BeldarAmjad, From the install disc get to the terminal and run bootrec /fixmbr07:20
AmjadHow do I remove Ubuntu and allocate the space to one of the existing drives in windows?07:20
BeldarAmjad, No repair just the command07:21

warfarenvalentinex: so only format the partition ubuntu is on during the installer07:33
valentinexwarfaren:from xp? ok then boot with live usb and install? Will that automatically readd xp to grub?07:33
warfarenvalentinex: no need to do anything in xp. boot your live usb, run ubuntu installer, format the (probably ext4) where your old ubuntu is and use it as root partition for the mew install07:34
valentinexwar9407:thank you so much, I understood07:35
valentinexwarfaren:sorry typed wrong nick war940707:35
warfarenvalentinex: you get the optiom to check format partition checkbox when choosing which partition to install to. yeah i noticed.07:35

Fouis there something in ubuntu to find out what the problem is ?08:08
AmjadIs there any way to access the terminal of a non-functional ubuntu installation?08:08
Ben64Fou: probably, but you'd need to give us a lot more information first08:08
AmjadI'm dual booting W7 and Ubuntu. And I can't boot into Ubuntu because of low graphics error (partition was too small)08:08
Ben64Amjad: i thought you wanted to get rid of ubuntu08:09
Fouwhat i mean is ... somewhere that is logging the error that is occurring ?08:09
Ben64Fou: yes, probably08:09
Fouso by default where would it be?08:09
Ben64depends what it is, you've still not given any information whatsoever08:10
Fouwell it just tells me there is a problem with the application would you like to sent a report ...08:10
AmjadI do, I also needed to find out which partitions here are being used by Ubuntu so I could remove them.. [http://i.imgur.com/Uwhw3lK.png] thought gparted might be accessible in the terminal.08:10
Viking667so, click "details"08:10
Viking667that should give you all the information you need.08:11
Fouthats why im asking where would this location with the log file is because im not sure what the problem is08:11
Ben64Amjad: gparted = gnome parted = graphical version of parted, so no, gparted will not work in terminal08:12
Amjadmy bad08:12
Viking667could have something to do with apport08:12

=== MomoNasty is now known as Momo|Off
Ben64Amjad: the ones that are not windows ones08:12
Viking667Amjad: from Windows?08:12
AmjadI set a siz of around 6 GB for the ubuntu partition when I installed it08:12
Viking667ugh. Small.08:12
AmjadFrom windows if that's possible, or from some other source08:12
AmjadI know :|08:13
Ben64do you not see the only two partitions shown there without a filesystem listed? probably those08:13
AmjadYeah I thought so too, but some people in another channel said I had better make sure first, one of them could be a swap partition for windows08:14
Ben64then... ask in ##windows about that, they can tell you if its for windows08:14
Amjadthat's where I asked08:14
Viking667you could also possibly install explore2fs08:15
AmjadI was told I should use gparted to make sure which paritions are linux ones08:15
AmjadOh right, I'll check that out Viking66708:15
Viking667sounds like a good idea08:15
Viking667... I've got fsdbext2 but then that's a system driver.08:15
Viking667... at least I think that's what it's called.08:15
Fouit said system problem detected08:15
Ben64Amjad: you can use parted in the linux terminal and see what they are08:15
AmjadI don't have a functional optical drive atm so I was hoping there was an easier way (ie, without having to boot into a linux live cd/pendrive)08:16
Viking667Fou: right. There's usually a "Details" button that you can click.08:16
Viking667yup. He's gone again.08:16
Founo it does not08:16
Viking667weird. can you send us a screenshot?08:16
Foucancel or report problem08:17

Viking667ahhh report then.08:17
Viking667click "report"08:17

Apollowhat what does mv backup2/ ./backup do?09:04
googHow can I any sed king here?09:04
Apollono, crap , mv backup2/ .backup/09:04
somsipgoog: just ask your question09:04
googI'm able to get own IP with "ifconfig eth1 | grep 'inet addr:' | cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1}'" ... How can I use this information to comment out a line that begins with this in /etc/hosts  in a single line of command?09:05
geirhaApollo: if .backup doesn't already exist, it renames backup2 to .backup. If .backup already exists, it moves backup2 to .backup/backup209:06
MyrttiApollo: and .backup (as a directory or a file beginning with .) is hidden from normal view09:06
Apolloaha there we go, idk i swear i thought it ls -a in the directory i did it in, thanks09:07
somsipgoog: write a script where you assign the output of ifconfig... to some variable, then use that in sed09:08
googis there any piping magic to do this?09:08
somsipgoog: maybe but it would be quite messy09:09
ikanoborigoog: Sure, cat + sed + xargs.09:10
ikanoborigoog: + what you had in front of it.09:10
ikanoboriHowever it would only be done because you want to go all out and not do it in a sane way.09:10
googaha so xargs does the trick. thanks ikanobori09:11
ikanoboriOr just sed plus the output of your previous command, depends on how you want to use it.09:11
ikanoboriI'd, at the very least, write it as a shell script file to execute so it has a bit more structure.09:12
geirhaBest avoid xargs; it generally doesn't do what you expect09:12
geirhagoog: on a side note, the ip command is easier to parse. E.g.   ip -o -4 addr show eth109:14
somsipgoog: $IP=`ifconfig....`; sed -i "s/\($IP)/#\1/" /etc/hosts (only a suggestion to work from - unlikely to work as it is)09:14
somsipgoog: and sudo is required...09:14

MarkDaviesI've removed the newest kernel from Ubuntu because it was broken. But now it displayed the following information: "The link /vmlinuz is a damaged link; Removing symbolic link vmlinuz;   you may need to re-run your boot loader[grub]". Should I take some precautions before rebooting the computer? Also, it seems that during the uninstallation process some kernel-related things not associated specifically to the removed version was deleted.09:55

ikoniaanuvrat: you shouldn't be using that kernel10:26
ikoniaanuvrat: why are you trying to update to that kernel10:26
SuperLagIt sounds like you're trying to follow an Arch solution to an Ubuntu problem. Apples and oranges.10:26
anuvratSuperLag, true ...10:27
ikoniaSuperLag: don't just make something up - where in "arch" does it say "use ubuntu development deb packages"10:27
cfhowlettanuvrat, choose a lane, amigo10:27
ikoniaanuvrat: why are you trying to update to this kernel ?10:27
anuvratikonia, I am trying te setup a triple monitor display10:28
Touhou11anuvrat: If you want a custom setup (rolling your own kernel etc.), Arch Linux is much better suited for this than Ubuntu10:28
ikoniaanuvrat: ok - why does your kernel matter for that ?10:28
ikoniaanuvrat: a bit of background would be helpful10:28
SuperLagikonia: I'm not making anyting up. If he's looking at an Arch Linux forum post, that's going to have a completely different setup than Ubuntu. More bleeding edge, different libs, etc.10:28
SuperLaganything, that is10:28
anuvratikonia, please ignore the kernel problem ...10:28

clocKwizeHi, I'm trying to backup a postgres database, and the server is running 9.3.1, but I can't run pg_dump because I need that version of the client, but I can't find a package called postgresql-client-9.3, only 9.1 which isn't compatible10:29
ikoniaanuvrat: it has a significant impact on your current system configuration10:29
* Viking667 grumbles about vlc not playing bluray.10:29

anuvratikonia, I am tring to setup 3 monitors ...10:29

ikoniaanuvrat: yes, you've said that10:29
=== g_byers is now known as gbyers[Away]
anuvratSuperLag, ikonia the kernel upgrade failed .. so no changes were done to the system ...10:29
ikoniaanuvrat: that's not actually true10:30
ikoniaI'm stepping away from this is your giving me blind assumption10:30
clocKwizeikonia: its an amazon RDS instance10:30
clocKwizeso managed and not by me10:30
ikoniaclocKwize: rds ? aws ?10:30
anuvratikonia, SuperLag, with the 3 monitor setup ... I am getting an error that says crtr failed :010:30
TJ-anuvrat: How many GPU heads are you using? Even if the device has 4 output connections most GPUs will only drive 2 of them at once10:31
ikoniaanuvrat: ask someone else - you're not answering my questions and keep repeating the monitor problem10:31
ikoniaanuvrat: you're kernel upgrade will have a significant impact on your current setup10:31
clocKwizeamazon web services 'relational database system' or something10:31
TJ-anuvrat: You'll need something like an Nvidia Quadro, or NVS 450 say, to drive more than 2 heads at once10:31
clocKwizeits just a hosted database that just works10:31
ikoniaclocKwize: apologies, never heard of it, but if the client version doesn't match the server version, I'd assume someone has an different repo providing a custom dab package, I'd contact their support for confirmation10:31
clocKwizeno problem :) thanks10:32
TJ-clocKwize: Quickest solution; install the required client version in an LXC container or heavier VM environment10:32
clocKwizeI think I just found a stack overflow article about adding a new deb repo10:32
ikoniaclocKwize: I'd strongly STRONGLY advice against that until you know why they are currently out of sync10:33
anuvratikonia, because the monitor problem is my problem ... I was trying to upgrade my kernel in order to solve my monitor problem, because I found a forum post which suggested that a kernel upgrade may solve the monitor problem.10:33
clocKwizeikonia: its the offical postgres apt repo10:33
ikoniaanuvrat: yes, I undertand that, but as I've said to you 3 times now the kernel change you've done will have a SIGNIFICANT impact on your systems configuration,10:33
anuvratTJ - my laptop has a vga and an hdmi port10:33
TJ-anuvrat: Your build issue, I'd guess, would be trying to build the current Nvidia kernel driver (309) on a new kernel, which requires nvidia 33110:33
ikoniaclocKwize: what is ?10:33
anuvratikonia, I have not changed the kernel ... the compilation failed and so did the upgradation process10:34
clocKwizethe repo it says to add10:34
TJ-anuvrat: So does mine; that isn't the point. The point is the GPU can only drive 2 heads at once... 1 is the LVDS so you can drive either the VGA or the HDMI as well, but not both10:34
ikoniaanuvrat: it didn't compile anything - it tried to and failed but the package still got installed10:34
ikoniaclocKwize: yes, I would still advise very strongly against adding it until you know and understand why the client/server versions are currently out of sync10:34
clocKwizeikonia: the box i'm doing this on is just an old version because precise doesn't have the newer version in the main apt repo?10:35
TJ-anuvrat: The nvidia kernel driver module is built using the DKMS wrapper... it is well-known that nvidia 309 source-code causes a FTBFS with nvidia version 309... you'll need nvidia 331 for that to build... but that won't solve your attempts to drive 3 heads at once on a 2-headed GPU10:35
anuvratikonia, okay ...10:35
anuvratTJ .. okay ... thanks10:36
darius93Question: Im using Ubuntu 13.10 and I keep seeing updates from ubuntu related to the kernel but when I do apt-get upgrade it tells me those been skipped10:36
TJ-anuvrat: what does "lspci -nn | grep VGA" report?10:36
ikoniaclocKwize: it must have a newer version as you have the server - so why would a repo contain the server, but not the client10:36
darius93or kept back. I would like to know if its safe to update the kernel10:36
TJ-anuvrat: If you want to drive more than 2 heads you'll need an additional video adapter connected to your laptop10:36
Ben64TJ-: you keep saying that, but i don't think that is true10:37
TJ-Ben64: What isn't true?10:37
clocKwizeikonia: the server isn't on my machine, its in amazon and I didn't set it up, its managed by them, there is no saying its actually an ubuntu box10:37
cfhowlettdarius93, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade    should bring you current on all packages for current distro.10:37
Ben64TJ-: there are a lot of results from google about people running 3 monitors from the hd400010:37
darius93cfhowlett: the last time i did dist-upgrade it broke the booting of the distro (back on 13.04)10:38
TJ-Ben64: I said that most GPUs, especially in laptops, are dual-head... but I'm awaiting the results of lspci to be sure which chipset the user has10:38
darius93but its mainly  the kernel im asking about10:38
thedeadhi, I'm trying to force a user to only bind to a port when using an ssh tunnel. Google told me this is possibile using SELinux, but I can't find how to label the port to allow user & ssh to bind (i can only allow one or the other). Any suggestion?10:39
cfhowlettdarius93, I wouldn't force it.  every "held back" I've ever had eventually fixed itself without my intervention10:39
cfhowlettdarius93, but YMMV10:39

Viking667... before it would even look at installing the 13.10 onto the usb drive.10:54
Viking667when it finished, there was a fat32 filesystem, and one of the files in the root directory was wubi.exe10:55

weedmicI have a "wd mybook live duo" nas which has a few files in /public which cannot be deleted using rm -rf /directoryname.  when using windows, I get an error that the file is "in use" or even "not found".  is there a way to force it to delete?12:25
cfhowlettbonsu, if your distro isn't properly supported, perhaps a change is in order ...12:25
nomad_frI'm looking for a workaround with lightdm12:26
nomad_frin fact azerty logitech wireless keyboard is always detect as qwerty one12:26
nomad_frall is correctly configure12:26
bonsuim trying to leanr more about linux so i tried installing arch on a virtualbox12:26
cfhowlettbonsu, again: NOT supported here.12:27
nomad_frmy configuration work great with a normal kayboard12:27
TJ-PatrickDickey: So the screen is an LVDS? I would wonder whether the default driver 'knows' how to talk to the APU. For clues as to why X gets it wrong examine/pastebin the file "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" after the X server fails to start12:27
cfhowlettbonsu, feel free to install #ubuntu.  I'd recommend the server edition.12:27
nomad_frto have good layout with my wireless keyboard I must plug also a 'normal' one12:27
bonsualready using it but not server12:27
wizard-pchas anyone used Ubuntu AMD Catalyst install till now12:29
SuperLagwizard-pc: yeah, but I quickly gave up on it, since the settings would *never* stay after a reboot12:31
weedmici h8 when that happens12:32
PatrickDickeyTJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6744364 Should be my /var/log/Xorg.0.log.12:32
SuperLagwizard-pc: even though you might miss out on some of the features of the proprietary driver, I've come to the conclusion that sticking with the open source drivers is **MUCH** easier on you, even if the quality isn't as good as with the closed source version12:32
PatrickDickeyMy APU is the AMD AMD A4-5000 APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics Processor12:35
* PatrickDickey is wondering if he needs to install fglrx on the LiveCD and then try startx.12:35
chemist^Hello everyone, i've noticed today that i don't have the correct graphics card driver installed on my ubuntu machine... When i do "lspci | grep VGA" i get this output: " VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Park [Mobility Radeon HD 5430] "  ... My graphics card is Radeon HD 5450 (don't know where that "Mobility" came from, i use a desktop pc)12:36
TJ-PatrickDickey: Well, the errors "(EE)" at the end of the log are pretty clear. the open-source radeon driver doesn't recognise the GPU, the modesetting driver can't use KMS (was that when you had "nomodeset" on the kernel command-line?), and the fallback VESA driver can't query the GPU via the VBIOS... so fail all round12:36
chemist^how can i update or replace the driver?12:36
PatrickDickeyTJ-: Yes, that's with nomodeset on the kernel command line.12:37
PatrickDickeychemist^: Which version of Ubuntu are you on?12:37
TJ-chemist^: textual descriptive names are generic and aren't guaranteed to mention every applicable model variation.12:37
chemist^TJ- ok12:37
chemist^how do i make sure i have the correct and most up-to-date drivers?12:38
PatrickDickeychemist^: You might be able to get the latest driver from AMD. I have the same graphics card in my desktop, and it reads the exact same as yours. And I have the latest drivers installed.12:38
TJ-chemist^: drivers match to compatible hardware based on the hardware's unique Vendor:Device ID and a single driver may list hundreds of compatible IDs12:38
chemist^another thing, i am using KDE as my DE and if i open the "additional drivers" little gui, i get like 5 entries ...12:39
TJ-PatrickDickey: If you could retry with "nomodeset" removed, and pastebin the resulting "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" that might help.... but I suspect your solution would be to install the AMD/ATI fglrx driver12:39

glitsj16nomad_fr: have you tried adding   display-setup-script=setxkbmap <layout> <variant>   to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf yet?12:40
nomad_frglitsj16: nop12:40
PatrickDickeyTJ-: I'll try that next. When I did xforcevesa, it went to a black screen and basically crashed (keyboard didn't work at all).12:40
chemist^PatrickDickey, TJ- http://imagebin.org/28658212:40
nomad_frglitsj16: I will now12:40
PatrickDickeychemist^: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Linux%20x86_64 should get you the latest drivers for your card (assuming you're using a 64-bit version of Ubuntu).12:41
chemist^yes i do12:41
nomad_frglitsj16: in fact I was looking after this : display-setup-script12:41
chemist^should i download this? AMD Catalyst™ 13.12 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver ... or the latest beta driver?12:42
nomad_frglitsj16: does I need to put ' or " or nothing !?12:42
glitsj16nomad_fr: no quotes needed12:42
PatrickDickeychemist^: I will say it's hit or miss. I had weird issues when I used the fglrx drivers from Canonical, and had other weird issues with the AMD drivers. Ultimately, I upgraded to 13.10 and everything works fine with the AMD Drivers.12:42
nomad_frglitsj16: I just tried with this : display-setup-script=setxkbmap fr12:42
k1lchemist^: whats with the fglrx ubuntu ships?12:43
chemist^PatrickDickey, have you looked at the screenshot i posted?12:43
PatrickDickeychemist^: I'd say go with the stable (not the beta) driver first.12:43
DF3D2having a problem where my mouse just stops being moveable after awhile on my laptop, to my knowledge I have NO buttons on the laptop that lock the trackpad in any way. The mouse always gets stuck on the same spot on the screen -- any ideas? I have to reboot to get it to work again12:43
glitsj16nomad_fr: and? still no azerty?12:43
nomad_frglitsj16: it seems to work12:43
nomad_frglitsj16: I reboot to e sure12:43
chemist^k1l, have no idea12:44
glitsj16nomad_fr: ahh sweet12:44
nomad_frglitsj16: glitsj16 thanks a lot12:44
k1lchemist^: why dont you use the driver from ubuntu?12:44
=== Mars is now known as Guest73351
PatrickDickeyYes chemist^ I did. That's if you want to use the drivers that Canonical provides. I guess the question is, are you having issues with the driver now? If not, then I wouldn't worry. If so, you could try the post-release updates on, or one of the experimental ones.12:44
glitsj16nomad_fr: you're welcome, i have azerty too so i remembered reading your issue12:44
chemist^K1l don't know :)12:44
nomad_frI just don't find the way to use display-setup-script12:45
LuyinDF3D2: clicking a mouse button won't help?12:45
k1lchemist^: i strongly suggest to use that first12:45
DF3D2Luyin, no12:45
chemist^PatrickDickey, i get less fps playing games on playonlinux then on windows12:45
TomyWorkis there any issue with upgrading ram while in hibernation?12:45
LuyinDF3D2: do you use powertop by any chance?12:45
k1lchemist^: use the ubuntu repos before downloading stuff from other webpages12:45
DF3D2Luyin, idk what that is12:46
glitsj16nomad_fr: i think i found that in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LightDM12:46
chemist^k1l, how do i update my graphics with ubuntu repos?12:46
LuyinDF3D2: a tool to monitor power usage. but if you don't know it, chances are high you don't use it, either. Then I can't help you, sorry.12:47
DF3D2Luyin, im using xfce power manager12:47
k1lchemist^: which ubuntu do you use and why do you need to upgrade the drivers?12:47
chemist^12.04 lts12:47
chemist^k1l, because i notice lack of performance during gameplay12:48
chemist^k1l, when comparing to gameplay while in win712:48
k1lchemist^: there will always be some lack of performance due to the manufarturers not making the same quality driver for linux12:48
PatrickDickeyTJ-: When I boot normally (from the LiveCD), it goes to a black screen and the laptop completely crashes. I have to hard reset it with the power button to do anything. So, I have to use something to load the basic graphics.12:48
supernoobchemist^: what game?12:48
TJ-chemist^: That dialog isn't very helpful is it? It doesn't appear to show the version numbers of the packages it is listing, which makes it rather pointless for end-users to evaluate which to choose.12:49
DF3D2having a problem where my mouse just stops being moveable after awhile on my laptop, to my knowledge I have NO buttons on the laptop that lock the trackpad in any way. The mouse always gets stuck on the same spot on the screen -- any ideas? I have to reboot to get it to work again12:49
chemist^supernoob, i've only tried one actually ;)) trackmania united nations forever12:49
chemist^TJ-, yes ;)12:49
k1lchemist^: fglrx-updates is the package12:50
TJ-PatrickDickey: Ouch! That definitely ought not to happen... although years past I had similar issues with older Sony notebooks12:50
chemist^so what now...is it best to try the amd catalyst driver from amd homepage or the one in the ubuntu repos?12:50
TJ-chemist^: My reading of that screen would be that the order of older > newer would be: entry #1, entry #4, entry #2 ... and then who knows!12:50
LuyinDF3D2: don't know if that's changing anything with the mouse settings normally12:51
LuyinDF3D2: suppose it shouldn't12:51
k1lchemist^: if you install the amd one ask them for support12:51
TJ-chemist^: If all you are concerned about is the model name reported then don't change anything; as I said, that is generic12:51
TJ-chemist^: If the driver is working correctly and you are not experiencing any video problems then leave well alone!12:52
DF3D2Luyin, nothing under pointing devices/mouse settings seems to help12:52
LuyinDF3D2: are you using a laptop with a touchpad?12:52
DF3D2it gets in this mode seemingly randomly, where i can only move it a small distance and it 'snaps' back12:52
DF3D2to the same spot12:52
DF3D2Luyin, yes I am12:52
DF3D2but the trackpad has no "mouse lock" button at all12:53
chemist^TJ-, i'm telling you i'm experiencing bad performance playing games that do not use hard graphics12:53
TJ-DF3D2: By 'mouse' do you mean the on-screen pointer icon? And you're operating it using the touchpad built-in12:53
DF3D2TJ-, indeed12:53
TJ-chemist^: OK ... so first thing is to check the log-files to see if anything is reported that is abnormal. Can you pastebin "/var/log/Xorg.o.log" ?12:53
chemist^should i try to disable the proprietary drivers amd use the ubuntu ones?12:53
k1lchemist^: ubuntu ships an own prop. driver12:54
LuyinDF3D2: can you still move the cursor by using the touchpad or not even that?12:54
DF3D2Luyin, not once it "locks up" well I can move it a very small distance like I said, then it will 'snap' back to the same spot12:54
chemist^TJ-, /var/log/Xorg.o.log12:54
k1lchemist^: i told you the package name already. dont go blindly into installing anything just for 1fps more in a game.12:54
DF3D2and it is always in the top middle of my screen12:54
LuyinDF3D2: have you been looking at the log files?12:55
chemist^TJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6744471/12:55
DF3D2Luyin, no, but I will drop to a command line next time to check dmsg12:55
TJ-chemist^: Second is to pastebin the output from "glxinfo | egrep 'version|direct' "12:55
LuyinDF3D2: ok12:55
chemist^TJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6744479/12:55
PatrickDickeyTJ-: Well I think it's because AMD made their drivers specifically for Toshiba. This thing has been a PIMA since I bought it. I *had* Lubuntu installed sort of. But, I had to install Ubuntu Server, and go from there to get a desktop.12:56
DF3D2PatrickDickey, is it a hybrid graphics type thing ?12:58
DF3D2or a specific amd mobile chip12:58
PatrickDickeyDF3D2: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/component/dmi/4458/dmi:AMDA4-5000APUwithRadeon(TM)HDGraphics/ is the closest thing I can get to information about it. My laptop isn't listed there though (Toshiba Satellite C55Dt )13:00
chemist^TJ-, any ideas? :)13:00

TJ-chemist^: Let's find out what the other fglrx experimental driver versions may be: "apt-cache search '^fglrx.*'  "13:02
=== LionelMessi is now known as Adran_
DF3D2PatrickDickey, I would install that13:03
PatrickDickeyDF3D2: I don't think that will help me. I'm trying to boot the Live CD, and it won't boot at all because of this graphics card.13:03
DF3D2PatrickDickey, I have you tried nomode set?13:03
DF3D2PatrickDickey, sry I didnt realize you couldn't boot the live-cd I thought you just needed to know what graphics driver13:04
PatrickDickeyDF3D2: Yep. It ends up at a console screen. And if I try xforcevesa or nothing, it completely hard locks the laptop.13:04
PatrickDickeyIronically enough, I can boot 12.04 with xforcevesa and install from there. :S13:04
DF3D2Maybe do that and then upgrade to 13.10 ?13:05
DF3D2as a path of least resistance13:05
TJ-PatrickDickey: The way I've fixed that in the long-dim past was to edit the liveISO kernel command-line to start in "text" mode (can't recall if I used "text" or "single") and then manually bring up the network, install the best driver, then manually continue the start-up. Unfortunately, I don't know if that is still possible.13:05
TJ-PatrickDickey: I'd be interested to hear if the current 14.04 liveISO will start correctly. If not, then that's a bug and could be addressed before Trusty is released in April13:07
PatrickDickeyDF3D2: I did that originally. Well up to 13.04. Then I mistakenly used Boot Repair to try and get my Windows 8 install to show up in GRUB. That pretty much screwed everything up for me (Boot Repair). So I'm really just trying to get to where I can fix that.13:07
PatrickDickeyTJ-: I thought about doing that. Although Trusty is still in Alpha, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to risk it. Although I may end up wiping and starting over anyhow, so it may not be much of a risk.13:08
DF3D2PatrickDickey, well if you install windows then ubuntu, grub should add windows to the list automatically if not you need to do it manually13:08
=== eskimio_ is now known as eskimio
DF3D2PatrickDickey, always easiest to install windows first13:09
DF3D2since it doesn't play nice13:09
PatrickDickeyWindows + Ubuntu + Fedora 19 + the recovery partitions. :S13:09
TJ-PatrickDickey: If it is a UEFI system then grub doesn't matter since the boot entries go into the UEFI NVRAM, not the grub boot menu... is it UEFI or BIOS?13:09
PatrickDickeyI'm thinking if I have to wipe this, I'm getting rid of the Fedora install. It's what screwed me up for booting this time around.13:09
PatrickDickeyIt's UEFI.13:10
DF3D2might disable uefi then13:10
TJ-PatrickDickey: And is it booting using UEFI or BIOS compatibility mode? In other words, is the hard disk GPT and has an EFI system partition?13:10
DF3D2PatrickDickey, I know UEFI is like the plague, and caused me nothing but issues on my new laptop so I disabled it13:11
TJ-PatrickDickey: UEFI is much better when wanting to multi-boot especially with Windows in the mix13:11
PatrickDickeyTJ-:  Everything is set for EFI. I tried the CSM, but it wouldn't let me install everything.13:12
TJ-PatrickDickey: That's useful then :)13:13
LihisHi, is this right channel to ask about stuff related to setting up a multi-monitor setup?13:13
PatrickDickeyWindows 8 worked up until last night (when I installed Ubuntu 12.04). Lubuntu half-way worked (wireless wouldn't) and Fedora wouldn't work at all. I had an issue where GRUB in Ubuntu wouldn't find the latest kernel for Fedora, so I couldn't install the drivers I needed.13:14
yawnec2 cloud-init question - does anyone know it it's possible to specify "ubuntu"s pub key using ssh-authorized-keys or will that get overwritten by AWS?13:14
TJ-PatrickDickey: Is Windows still in the UEFI boot menu?13:15
PatrickDickeyTJ-: It was when I ran Boot Repair, but before that, I never even saw a menu. It just booted straight into Ubuntu.13:16
TJ-PatrickDickey: OK, so Windows is now starting successfully - you've recovered partially from the 12.04 install side-effects?13:16
PatrickDickeyI made the mistake of trying one of the failsafe backups, and it turned out to be the buggy Fedora GRUB Menu (the only thing that will boot from that is Fedora). And I'm stuck with that menu now. :S13:16
PatrickDickeyTJ-: No, Windows doesn't boot. If I try to boot from the hard drive, it uses the buggy Fedora GRUB menu, so nothing boots.13:17
VlanXhow can I list all services running in a machine?13:17
TJ-PatrickDickey: Well, my approach would be to use the liveISO to create a chroot of the Fedora install and switch into that and use Fedora tools to fix that one, reboot confirm it is fixed, and the I'd investigate Ubuntu 14.04 liveISO to see if it can handle the graphics13:18
PatrickDickeyAnd on the 12.04 disc, the only way I can boot it is to use the "Install Ubuntu" option, and xforcevesa.13:18
TJ-PatrickDickey: The PC should offer a hot-key at boot that will show the UEFI boot menu... sometimes F12 ... do you have that? Does it show a menu?13:18
SpitfireVlanX, service --status-all13:19
PatrickDickeyTJ-: I'm thinking if I can boot the 14.04 iso, I may just use that. I want Ubuntu to handle the GRUB.13:19
DF3D2VlanX, ps aux13:19
Spitfireps aux will give you all processes.13:19
PatrickDickeyTJ-: F12 shows optical, hard drive, usb, setup.13:19
TJ-PatrickDickey: So long since I installed 12.04 I can't recall how well (or not) it handles UEFI installs13:19
=== sagar is now known as Guest76078
DF3D2Spitfire, yeah your answer is much better +113:19
TJ-PatrickDickey: Does it prefix some entries with something like "UEFI:..." to indicate a UEFI boot as opposed to a BIOS boot? One system here I've been hacking would shows "UEFI:" and "ATA" prefixes to differentiate13:21
PatrickDickeyTJ-:  I figure that I have nothing to lose by trying the 14.04 one. So, I may do that when I wake up. It's past my bedtime right now (I work third shift, so "Mornings" are my "nights").13:21
TJ-PatrickDickey: Never helps when you're tired!13:21
PatrickDickeyTJ-: Nope. Nothing. The only way I can get into UEFI or CSM is via BIOS.13:21
TJ-PatrickDickey: I guess that's the whole minimal approach due to it being a laptop not a desktop motherboard - remove everything extraneous.13:22
TimeRiderI always disable UEFI in BIOS... So far I've not needed it13:23
VlanXspitfire, DF3D2: thanks guys13:23
DF3D2TimeRider, same13:23
DF3D2VlanX, hah, his answer was the correct one :-D I learned something too13:23
TJ-PatrickDickey: One tip I'd give you for UEFI... install "shellx64.efi" (version 2) into the ESP partition at "/EFI/shellx64.efi". Add an entry to the UEFI boot menu for it, and it'll give you a lot of additional hacking tools for when things like this go wrong.13:24
PatrickDickeyTJ-:  Thanks. I'll have to look into that.13:24
TimeRiderTJ- : that sounds interesting, and links about it?13:24
TimeRiderany even?13:25
TJ-PatrickDickey: see this link: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/tianocore/index.php?title=Efi-shell13:25
TimeRiderthanks :)13:25
TJ-PatrickDickey: I used it last week on a mobo that had a cut-down shell that didn't even have "ls" command... it saved my bacon13:25
TimeRiderany tools that run before OS boot are useful :)13:26
TJ-PatrickDickey: Using Ubuntu liveISO, you can "apt-get install efibootmgr" and then add/edit entries in the UEFI boot menu too... but the V2 shell allows you to do that directly without an operating system13:26
DF3D2damn TJ- you know a ton about EFI. all I know is to disable it instantly every time :-)13:27
PatrickDickeyTJ If I can get Trusty to boot, I'll do that. I need to edit it, and remove the crap that doesn't work.13:27
DF3D2I've never had any trouble dual booting without it13:27
TJ-TimeRider: Agreed! It saved my sanity after 3 days of stress fighting a windows 7/Ubuntu multi-disk move from BIOS to UEFI boot13:27
TJ-DF3D2: This time 2 weeks ago I knew nothing! Now I feel like I could write an EFI shell from scratch :D13:28
PatrickDickeyTruthfully, the only reason I wanted to keep UEFI is so I could keep the Toshiba Recovery partition. For when I sell the laptop.13:28
TimeRiderTJ- : well done, that task sounds daunting to me!13:28
TJ-PatrickDickey: There are other reasons; UEFI boot system is far slicker and less invasive that the BIOS method where multiple boot-loaders try to replace each other... with UEFI that all goes away13:29
TimeRiderTJ- : I'd have been imaging both OS's then fighting with em and getting grub back in13:29
TJ-TimeRider: I'm still working on the Windows side... trying to persuade its registry to use the different AHCI hardware it is now seeing, rather than the previous IDE13:30
Bauerguys, my wife was watching a movie on her account just now, when computer rebooted. I check syslog, and last message before it came online, seems to be: Jan 13 13:55:50 genadi-deskubuntu gnome-screensaver-dialog: pam_ecryptfs: seteuid error13:30

Hecarushello, i'm new in ubuntu...I would like to ask something about tripwire13:31
* PatrickDickey has barely used tripwire, but not in ubuntu.13:31
HecarusDoes anyone know how to exclude hosts.deny from policy file?13:32
TJ-Bauer: That looks like some process didn't correctly parse a user ID and resulted in a bad string. Not sure about the previous pam_ecryptfs error13:33

BauerTJ-: those couldnt cause a system to halt/reboot?13:33
TJ-Bauer: Unlikely; I'd suspect an over-temperature issue if it just dies without warning13:34
Bauerhmm, you remember off-head the command to see sensors data?13:34
PatrickDickeyHecarus: http://www.cs.montana.edu/courses/309/topics/11-security/tripwire_discussion.html might get you going.13:35
TJ-Bauer: video decoding can often stress the system that way.   lm-sensors is the base package for monitoring, and there are various GUI applications and task-tray applets for seeing/logging the values13:36
PatrickDickeylm-sensors is what you'll use to access them. But off-hand, I'm not sure which command shows the data.13:36
PatrickDickeyI'm off to bed for a bit. Hopefully I can get this working later.13:36

LihisI want setup three monitors , I have NVIDIA gpu with SLI, now connected to two monitors. Can the third monitor added with second non-sli nvidia gpu?13:37

TJ-Bauer: OK, hang on, I've searched a bit. I've found an example sensors config that suggests temp1 is the "system" temperature and temp2 is the "CPU casing" temperature.13:53
Bauerhmm, system - meaning CPU?13:53
TJ-Bauer: Your guess is as good as mine!13:54
Bauerwell, how do I make it save high tempratures into log file at least? if it ever reboots again because of that, I will know :)13:55
LihisTJ-:  Of course.. So I should not connect two gpu with SLI. Better start googling..13:55
HecarusHEY!, can somebody help me with tripwire?13:55
TJ-Lihis: If you want to run 3/4 head with nvidia cards it is easy to do... I have 2 GPUs here on my laptop (1 internal, 1 external via ExpressCard + ViDock) and run 4 to 6 monitors across 3 X sessions. The only caveat is Gnome/Unity can't deal with it so I switched to Kubuntu/KDE13:59
TJ-Bauer: There is a package called "sensord" that will log temperatures14:00
LihisTJ-: I want 3. Okay, good to know that. Do you know can Unity handle three monitors with one X session?14:02
TJ-Bauer: "sudo apt-get install sensord" then "sudo sed -i 's/#LOG_INTERVAL=30m/LOG_INTERVAL=1m/' /etc/default/sensord" then "sudo service sensord restart"14:02
TJ-Lihis: Yes... it can handle multiple heads OK... it is the multiple X sessions it fails on14:03
LihisTJ-:  Okay. Thank you.14:03
TJ-Lihis: With nvidia just use nvidia X settings to configure the monitors and their layout relative to one another. It will write a custom "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" and require log-out log-in14:04
TJ-Lihis: actually, I don't think it will require log-out or custom xorg.conf for simple monitor layout... I seem to recall it configures and saves that for later sessions without xorg.conf14:04
LihisTJ-: Yes, I currently have 2 monitors connected. I have problems adding the third one. As seems that my current gpu can't handle three monitors. So I would set 3 head with one X session, with two gpu's.14:07
LihisTJ-: Two of these monitors display just text etc.14:08
TJ-Lihis: Ahhhh no... sorry... I'm confusing myself... You would need 2 X sessions for 2 GPUs ... but I think you can enable xinerama to combine the heads into 1 X session... but then I believe that reduces the 3D opengl accleration on some or all heads. It is a complex topic!14:08
BauerTJ-: thanks, you sure that sed command is correct? everything in /etc/default/sensord seems commented out with # prefixed14:09
TJ-Lihis: Best is to do methodical experimentation... build up to your final intention in steps and keep track of every change you make14:09
TJ-Bauer: Did I mistype!?14:09
BauerI am not specialized in sed, so I am not sure :) only uncommented line actually is  SYSLOG_FACILITY=daemon14:10
TJ-Bauer: This works: "sudo sed -i 's/#LOG_INTERVAL=30m/LOG_INTERVAL=1m/' /etc/default/sensord"14:10
geirhaOr just run   sudoedit /etc/default/sensord   and edit it manually14:11
BauerTJ-: what is it supposed to do? where should the log be? # RRD_FILE=/var/log/sensord.rrd14:11
TJ-Bauer: If in doubt edit the file manually "sudo vim /etc/default/sensord"  or use a GUI editor with something like "gksudo gedit /etc/default/sensord"14:11
TJ-Bauer: "daemon" facility is default and the output goes to "/var/log/syslog"14:12
TJ-Bauer: By setting the interval to 1 minute you're going to have a pretty accurate trace of temperatures if it does fail again14:12
TJ-geirha: good point :)14:12
Bauerahh, got it TJ- :) thanks! hmm how do I prevent the report of voltage into the syslog? to prevent overspamming14:13
TJ-Bauer: not sure! "man sensord" may help14:13
LihisTJ-: No problem. Damn.. Yes, it seems very complex. I have trying to find all information that is possible from google but it's not easy to understand everything.14:15
JohnnyL    More14:15
JohnnyLHey, I get 50% cpu usage ONLY at the main facebook news page. With opera this is at 3%. I'm using Linux 64 bit. Any suggestions?14:15
TJ-Lihis: I've found the nvidia settings GUI is really useful at figuring out such things... and then reading the xorg.conf it generates to understand what is required.14:16
LihisTJ-: I'll start looking them closer. Thank you!14:16
TJ-Bauer: Once you've proved or disproved temperature as a cause you can change the LOG_INTERVAL back to the default 30m (30 minutes)14:17

Myrttimichagogo|cloud: well, they need X to display anything, and X is run as root, so there's one more layer of moving parts, which needs some careful navigation, and sudo and gksu does that14:49

FourFireHow do i check my real time per process memory bandwidth use?16:01
FourFireis there  special utility for that?16:01
KoalaGamerZanyone else in school?16:01
MasterOfDisasterFourFire: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6503385/how-to-measure-memory-bandwidth-currently-being-used-on-linux recommends oprofile. Not sure if this applies to your case.16:02
MasterOfDisasterKoalaGamerZ: technically yes.16:02
so_how to now the family of my printer please? (dcp hl fax or mfc)16:03
rcw2i ran ./configure in clamav directory.  but what is the next step?  'make' alone isn't right.  there are two makefiles16:03
freshmintrobinmholt, like to encode with unsing libx264 and set the encoding profile to high16:04
KoalaGamerZlike a baws16:04
freshmintrobinmholt, something like -profile:v high should do it though the files get encoded with the main profile16:04
RoryKoalaGamerZ: Do you have an Ubuntu support question?16:04
MasterOfDisasterrcw2: eh, 'apt-get install clamav' not enough?16:05
rcw2MasterOfDisaster, wifi card down16:05
freshmintrobinmholt, using x264 directly (only video) allows me to set the profile to high16:05

so_please ??16:06
Screwbawhere would be the best place to ask a Samba/Winbind question?  it is specific to Ubuntu 13.1016:06
MasterOfDisasterrcw2: I wouldn't meddle in APT's domain if I didn't know what I was doing. Get yourself a suitable connection.16:06
so_i want to know the family of my printer: dcp hl mlf or fax16:07
MasterOfDisasterrcw2: If you want to customize a package, get its source and start changing/compiling it the debian/ubuntu way: 'apt-get source clamav'16:08
FourFirethis one application is slowing down my whole computer16:08
FourFireMasterOfDisaster, I couldn't answer before now because it was that bad16:08
FourFireand the processor time is actually quite low16:08
FourFireso it must be RAM bandwidth, or disk?16:08
rcw2MasterOfDisaster, 'apt-get source clamav' for offline use?16:09
MasterOfDisasterFourFire: well it's a profiler. inspection is pricey16:09
FourFireit shouldn't be writing to disk so it has to be ram bandwidth16:09
FourFirenah, the program I want to test16:09

freshmintcan you paste your script somewhere?16:11
so_@MasterOfDisaster i'm begginer in english and you'r link is so hard for me16:12
freshmintrobinmholt, which version do you use of ubuntu? libav? libx264?16:12
robinmholtfreshmint: It is a one-liner. avconv -i $1 -vcodec libx264 -preset fast -vprofile baseline -acodec aac -strict experimental -r 24 -b 255k -ar 44100 -ab 59k $416:13
robinmholtThere is a commented line above that which has the only difference of -vprofile is -profile:v.  Otherwise, it is the same.16:14
FourFirewell suddenly it started working fine16:14
freshmintrobinmholt, well according to this bug bugs.debian.org/68704816:14
roninnhow could i check that if two files both have the same lines (doesnt need to be in the same order)16:14
FourFirethat is a weird thing, I'll have to investigate it's cause... later16:14

jkdskjdhskjdhskji'm in the university, we have scientific linux on here, no root access. i need to run my own thing, should I A) install it on the university's harddrive (which is not allowed but maybe it would not be detected) or B) should I install it on a usb drive, and if so, will it be fast enough for python programming.

yacc_I'm getting scrolling errors in firefox when I've connected a second monitor to my laptop (Intel HD4400), any ideas?16:30

jkdskjdhskjdhskjmasterofdisaster, i asked, they're against it.16:30
MasterOfDisasterjkdskjdhskjdhskj: then don't try to go behind the admin's backs. trouble will likely follow on your heels.16:31
hitsujiTMOjkdskjdhskjdhskj: what exactly of it requires root access?16:31
jkdskjdhskjdhskjhitsujiTMO, i need several packages which I'm not allowed to install. and i'm okay with that. so i thought, i'd install ubuntu on a usb thumbdrive and boot it from there. but i have no experience in that. is it fast enough for some programming?16:33
MasterOfDisasterjkdskjdhskjdhskj: most likely yes16:33
hitsujiTMOjkdskjdhskjdhskj: most likely the bios is locked out so you can't boot from usb.16:33
jkdskjdhskjdhskji checked and i can.16:33
MasterOfDisasterjkdskjdhskjdhskj: Freiheit für Forschung und Lehre :D16:34
hitsujiTMOjkdskjdhskjdhskj: can you not just build the packages files in your home?16:34
strixUKjkdskjdhskjdhskj: you've been told not you can't do what you've asked, if you go ahead and do it anyway you will probably get into trouble.  could even have your physical access privileges revoked.  (there are reasons other than them not wanting random software installed that they may have forbidden you to do this)16:35
MasterOfDisasterjkdskjdhskjdhskj: as hitsujiTMO puts it, python + its cohorts can usually run from its own prefix in your /home.16:35
strixUKwhy not do what you need to at home?16:35
MasterOfDisasterjkdskjdhskjdhskj: you should ask them though if it is ok to run it in your /home.16:35
jkdskjdhskjdhskjmasterofdisaster, yeah, but i can't get tkinter running, because certain gtk-packages don't exist.16:35
jkdskjdhskjdhskjthe admin doesn't want to help me out.16:36
hitsujiTMOjkdskjdhskjdhskj: have you approached your supervisor about it?16:36
jkdskjdhskjdhskja usb-install would only let me use the computer's power, not change any part of the existing system.16:36

frogfrogfrogHi, I have been running 12.04 server for some time and have just noticed that my login greets me with "Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-57-generic x86_64)" - Why am I listed as 12.04.4 when it's not scheduled for release for another month? (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PrecisePangolin/ReleaseSchedule)16:52
yacc_strixUK: what exactly do you mean by overhead?16:52
shadokchemist^: yup, I really like thunar, it's not krusader but I don't do file management anymore. Thunar + Gigolo + Synergy to my win box and it's cool16:52
strixUKfor example, why, with a completely unpartitioned disc, does fdisk say the first available sector is 2048, when the first boot sector is normally in LBA 63?16:52
frogfrogfrogyacc_: You're on intel, aren't you? That's an intel bug16:52
chemist^i'm gonna try out xfce... should i install the xubuntu-desktop or just xfce4?16:53
tonyteasier to just install xubuntu16:53
shadokstrixUK: if you're talking about raid overhead (available disk space after the raid is up) tell us your raid level16:53
k1lstrixUK: i think the hardware specific topics better suit into #ubuntu-offtopic or ##hardware16:53
yacc_strixUK: the biggest issue with partition tables, performance wise, would be a misaligned partition, but modem partioning software will try to prevent you from this, ...16:53
shadokchemist^: xfc4 is the 'plain' experience, xubuntu adds a few things on top (not sure what)16:54
phunyguyfrogfrogfrog, do you have prerelease updates enabled?16:54
strixUKyacc_: eg, if i've got N sectors on a disc, after the partition table is created, how much space do i need to allow for the partition table and MBR etc?  The MBR, along with the first 4 partitions all fit in 1 sector, fine, but it seems that conventionally the boot block for the first partition lives in sector 6316:54
yacc_frogfrogfrog: Well, so what do I do, I'm almost sure that the VGA&HDMI connectors are meant to be used with my new laptop :(16:54
chemist^shadok, on the ubuntu forums i've read that having nautilus installed will cause system conflicts16:54
k1lfrogfrogfrog: do you have proposed enabled?16:54
yacc_strixUK: conventially, nowadays, it's to block off the first 1M or so, to improve alignment, ...16:55
strixUKshadok- well, raid overhead will be taken out of the filesystem put inside the raid container, so i don't care about that so much16:55
strixUKk1l: if you think that is better, sure; the reason i'm asking it here is because it pertains to installation of a new ubuntu box16:55
shadokstrixUK: nothing to leave to the MBR, the mbr/partition table is outside the partitions, something like the first 512B of the disk16:55
frogfrogfrogphunyguy, k1I, I do not: I have universe, multiverse and backports16:56
frogfrogfrog(and updates, obviously)16:56
strixUKyacc_: that'd explain the first available sector i guess16:56
Guest57480can i install matlab in ubuntu16:56
shadokyacc_: interesting but why do you have to allow 1M and not the diff to your actual block size16:56
phunyguyhuh.... frogfrogfrog, I show the same thing!16:56
phunyguyWelcome to Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-57-generic x86_64)16:56

frogfrogfrogphunyguy: This wouldn't be the first time releases haven't coincided with the wiki16:57
yacc_frogfrogfrog: btw, it's not exactly an Intel issue, I had basically the same thing a year ago with an AMD APU, which worked well enough till I started to use a second panel => I had to add a discrete GPU back then, because the display artifacts ...16:57
phunyguyyep.  it is a wiki after all... it can be edited16:57
yacc_shadok: well, 116:57
yacc_shadok: well, 1MB is not big, relative to current disk sizes, and at the same time covers all kinds of internal "block sizes" that SSDs might find convinient, ...16:58
shadokyacc_: what is the size of your blocks? I wonder why you don't just add the difference to 'pad' to block size?16:58
phunyguyfrogfrogfrog, apparently the release was delayed two weeks from jan 23rd... but it is still showing 12.04.4 for us.16:59
yacc_shadok: basically, it's a very defensive layout. 1MB is nothing, compared to the pain of of even 0.1% of users having misaligned logical and physical sectors.16:59
yacc_shadok: well, not all devices will tell you.16:59
strixUKyacc_: what sort of alignment issues actually matter these days, other than perhaps in 4kB sector discs?  Do CHS alignments actually matter for anything, given LBA addressing?16:59
yacc_shadok: especially SSDs are not necessary talkative, ...16:59
shadoksure about the available space yacc_, ok I didn't see that for the moment but I run old computers16:59
shadokyacc_: I'll pay attention when I install Linux on my new box (samsung ssd)17:00
frogfrogfrogphunyguy: Well, since I haven't really gotten any major updates recently I'd imagine it's a labelling issue17:00
phunyguyI agree.17:00
goudkovhi guys. i have a weird problem in 12.04. sometimes, when i open a new application (or even gnome terminal), the contents of the window freeze. if i click on the title bar of the window, the app unfreezes, then freezes again. and so on. when that starts happening i know that the computer will freeze for good soon. and it usually does withing a day or so. on reboot, nothing in the logs that could indicate the source of a problem.17:00
yacc_shadok: well, for almost any value of old hardware that you might want to run with current software (roughly 10-15 years max), 1MB is really not much of an issue, ...17:00
phunyguygoudkov, I would do a memory test17:01
k1lfrogfrogfrog: i think an update slipped through17:01
shadokyacc_: I thought the pata/sata interface had to give that info17:01
chemist^shadok, should i remove nautilus prior to xfce installation?17:01
yacc_frogfrogfrog: okay, so what's the recommendation to fix that Intel "bug".17:01
goudkovphunyguy: yeah, i ran memtest overnight. that was my first though. no problems there.17:01
phunyguygoudkov, how does your HDD look?17:01
yacc_shadok: well, newer SATA hdds are supposed to tell you.17:01
goudkovphunyguy: 30% used17:01
shadokchemist^: you can keep both and even run any soft under any DE (nautilus in kde environnement for example)17:02

goudkovit can work fine for a week. then this starts happening. and after that, a day later the computer freezes for good. this really sucks. it's like using win 98 :) i can't leave any long-term work open.17:03
chemist^i chose to install only xfce4 not xubuntu-desktop17:03
gnansani have it configured and its working perfectly but its asking for a password, the first time i try to connect17:03
phunyguygoudkov, by any chance are you on nvidia hardware?17:03
phunyguy(or ATI?)17:03
chemist^cause i don't need all those applications, like abiword etc.17:03
goudkovphunyguy: yeah. nouveau problems?17:04
gnansani need some quick help with sftp17:04
phunyguygoudkov, I have had bad luck with nouveau, and slightly less bad luck with official nvidia drivers17:04
chemist^gnansan, have you tried leaving it blank?17:04
phunyguygoudkov, my educated guess would be that it is related to nvidia.17:05
goudkovphunyguy: i use nvidia module. not nouveau. but even then, it's intel hybrid. so i use intel most of the time.17:05

AdemanI honestly only switched so I could get OpenCL working, getting OpenCL via MESA on 12.04 was proving to be a total PITA19:35
litropyEuclidis, I came very close to running fglrx-updates, but my card is no longer supported, so I would have had to install a patched legacy catalyst and maybe downgrade xorg.19:36
AdemanI'm thinking it's some stupidity with dual monitors, as I have two mismatched monitors, and I *think* the number of blank pixels = the number of vertical pixels LESS my left screen has than my right screen, but it still happens even when I alt+printscreen to get a single window19:37
EuclidisI've got combined fglrx-updates with vainfo. My radeon 6620G runs great. No problem except the terrible tearing I got. I tried all forms of configuration and nothing relevant..19:38
litropyAdeman, only one way to be sure: unplug the extra, clear out the settings so that it has no idea there's another monitor sitting next to it, and try again.19:38
litropyAdeman, OpenCL - is that GPU processing stuff, used mainly for bitcoin mining ATM?19:39
Ademanlitropy: actually, I just compared two screenshots, one of a single window, and one of my whole desktop, the black area perfectly matches the size difference between my two monitors19:40
Ademanthat's pretty dumb lol19:40
litropyAdeman, maybe your screenshot program is confused, and it might be easier to configure _that_ rather than fiddle with your gfx configs19:40
Ademanlitropy: "used mainly for bitcoin mining ATM?" I'm using it for litecoin mining, but OpenCL has a ton of other uses, it's great for simulation stuff19:40
litropyAdeman, nice. Is it making more than the electricty you're using?19:41

noahsamgabeGuys, I'm having trouble with my desktop appearance after clean installing lubuntu on it. I looked at the ubunut forums for help with icons and there wasn't anything really for me there. I'm new here with this. I now have a dark screen with only a few icons on bottom left. How can I make get a nice appearance and icons for the left of the screen?20:51
TJ-MrJerome: I've searched the bug reports and can't find anything even remotely similar, at least for that model. Slow at start-up is *usually* a file-system check being done which can take a long time with large file-systems... debugging shutdown is a bit more difficult since logging and other non-kernel services are generally killed20:52
MrJeromeTJ: Yes, I'm having a very hard time getting to the bottom of this.20:54
TJ-MrJerome: however, you can to some extend narrow the possibilities on shutdown but starting in Recovery single-user mode (so no GUI etc.) and then from the resulting terminal shell immediately do "sudo shutdown -r now" and see if there is still a delay. Test a few times. If there is no delay that gives you a clue that the delay is caused by something started when the system switches to a multi-user run-level and fires up the GUI20:55

PatrickDickeyHey TJ-, some good news sort of. Trusty booted and installed with minor hitches on that laptop. The bad news is it only recognizes an older Fedora Kernel (GRUB) and won't boot to Windows 8 at all. (I haven't tried the efi shell that you recommended, nor Boot-Repair, nor anything else yet).21:21

phiscribeif your can figure it out, network boot21:22
sudormrfbekks, my question cannot be summed up in one sentence.  I am currently using cacti and would like to know how it stacks up against mrtg.  I would also like to know how well nagios with graphs works when compared to cacti and mrtg.  but there are going to be a whole ton of questions related to this, should someone in here have the experience.21:22
TJ-PatrickDickey: Well that's some kind of progress :)21:22
jordilopezamatah... phiscribe , and if succeed on running a LiveCD session ? what would be next step ? :-/21:23
tim`_why does the ubuntu installer on OSX only give an option for encryption if you replace and not isntall alongside osx?21:23
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: Out of curiosity, do you even get a GRUB menu? (May have been asked and answered earlier)21:23
jordilopezamatthanks PatrickDickey , no ... i'm not getting GRUB menu21:24
UnknownEntityLike this? http://pastie.org/863067421:24
PatrickDickeytim`_: Because it would be encrypting the entire drive possibly. So it doesn't want to mess up your OS X installation. Although it *should* only encrypt your home directory, so it could also be that they're both POSIX systems.21:24
tim`_PatrickDickey: i want to encrypt the partition though -21:25
tim`_that is what is typically done21:25
TJ-jordilopezamat: The message you report comes from the BIOS before any operating system is found. Have you got any external USB devices connected?21:25
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: You could always try fixing GRUB anyhow from the live cd. Assuming you can mount your drive.21:25
jordilopezamatcontext is : boot, then memory check... regular HW check & listing... then "A disk read error occurred21:25
jordilopezamatPress Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"21:25
phiscribejordilopezamat first it would let you see the partitions and the files on the partitions and drives. thus you would know that the system is basicaly sound, that bios, cpu memory and hard drives are working. its just a first step. it can also allow you to change grub or fix grub. you might consicer a SuperGrub disk21:25
TJ-jordilopezamat: When the system starts press the key that gets you into the BIOS setup... then find the "load defaults" and use it, then reconfigure the boot-order to ensure the hard disk is listed (preferably 2nd after any DVD/CD drive)21:26
phiscribeif you cant boot from usb. fired usb. if you cant boot from cd/dvd or usb, its likely some basic hardware component fired21:26
phiscribeyes bios should have a button to push to bet a boot menu to choice the boot device, (usb, hard drive, optical, network)21:27
jordilopezamatthanks guys! ummhh... i'll try form another USB connectar, just in case is fried...21:27
jordilopezamatsure... i'll take BIOS boot priority in account!21:27
MrJeromeTJ: So I updated the BIOS but I'm still getting the delay. I did notice that during the delay the hard-drive access indicator light stays solidly lit.21:28
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: http://askubuntu.com/questions/204021/a-disk-read-error-occurred-on-windows-after-installing-ubuntu-12-1021:28
PatrickDickeyGranted you're on 12.04, but the problem is the same.21:28
TJ-jordilopezamat: another tip for you... sometimes this can be caused by vibration or bangs causing the data or power connections to the hard drive to become slightly dislodged... if you're brave, open it up to get to the hard disk and ensure the connetions are firmly in21:29
phiscribeugg i rememer that nastiness in 12.04 with drives spinning21:29
jordilopezamatthanks PatrickDickey i was reading that one...21:30
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: You can install/run Boot-Repair from the Live CD also.21:30
jordilopezamatDamned... now LiveUSB just booted! :- ) phiscribe you were right ...21:30
TJ-jordilopezamat: Another related issue can be memory modules being dislodged... so check them. I opened a laptop recently to find the SO-DIMM locking arms had sprung loose and the modules were 30 degrees from normal... and still working too!21:30
jordilopezamatUSB connector was fried :-/21:31

TJ-jordilopezamat: If the BIOS can't find the MBR then yes21:34
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: If the hardware checks don't solve the issue, then yes that could be the problem. So, I'd check the hardware like TJ- and the others recommended, and then try BootRepair or something similar to fix GRUB.21:35
PatrickDickeyjordilopezamat: Here's the information on Boot Repair (since our lovely ubottu doesn't have it) https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair21:35

jordilopezamatany recommended test from ?21:36
jordilopezamatok, i'll use boot repair...21:36
TJ-jordilopezamat: The BIOS reads sector 0 of a drive, and then looks for the magic 0x55AA as the last 2 bytes... then it executes the code from offset 0. That error occurs when it can't find the magic bytes or boot sector21:36
jordilopezamatsure TJ-21:37
TJ-jordilopezamat: I'd be doing "sudo dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 | hexdump -C | less" and checking the boot sector looks good.21:37

MrJeromeTJ: Yes, I saw that in the BIOS. I'll give that a shot it will take about 2 hours.21:50
TJ-LadyFrHll: The USB doesn't have a UEFI partition ... the BIOS just offers BIOS and UEFI boot options for any removable device... the same for DVDs21:51
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI21:51
LadyFrHllI see because I can boot the USB from either or the EFI or tthe kingston which is why I was confused21:52
jhutchinsLadyFrHll: Yes, live will install just fine with nomodeset - you can do an installation entirely in text mode if you need to - but the system may not be smart enough to pick up that parameter when it completes the install - you may have to add it manually.21:52
hitsujiTMOLadyFrHll: UEFI can boot fat32/fat16/fat12. If it sees one of these partitions it will give you the option to boot in uefi mode, or if not it will boot in legacy mode21:52
TJ-LadyFrHll: however, that doesn't mean the USB device doesn't have a GPT layout or an EFI system partition - it might have!21:52
jhutchinsTJ-: Except it doesn't.21:53

jhutchinsLadyFrHll: I wouldn't worry about that.21:53
jhutchinsLadyFrHll: If you wrote the installer image to the drive correctly - which you did as the installer appears to run ok - then it wrote the partition table and filesystem along with it and over-wrote your partition.21:54
LadyFrHlljhutchins, add the grub manually?21:54
