ikoniaekristen: or ppa's00:11
ekristenjust universe and chris-lea/node.js00:12
ikoniaekristen: it's possible that's causing the dependency problems depending on what it's installed00:12
ikoniaekristen: also clear your apt cache and re-run apt-get update to get a current cache00:12
ikoniaekristen: check if the dependency it's looking for is actually in the core repos00:13
hitsujiTMObmccoy11: sweet. ok. now go back into. ok. now the installer should be able to see the partition table and ofc see windows then. best to downsize the windows partition in windows via administrative tools -> disk management    before running the installer00:13

bmccoy11It worked, hitsujiTMO!00:17
Jordan_UDarkAceXtreme: On a home system the only thing I can think of that they might find from ifconfig that's relevant to your security is whether or not you're using NAT, and the solution to that is to just make sure that you are using NAT (which 99.9% of home routers do by default).00:17
witheld9And while I've partially accomplished this, it only manages to load like 20% of the time00:17
witheld9most of the time it doesn't even see the workgroups00:17
hitsujiTMObmccoy11: sweeet. best to shrink the partition in windows. better to stick with the native tools when dealing with ntfs00:17
witheld9And then when it does, most of the time I can't actually load the workgrop and see shares00:17

=== CyberJacob is now known as CyberJacob|Away
Jordan_Ubmccoy11: hitsujiTMO: I disagree, I think that ntfsresize is as reliable if not more so than Windows' own tools, and letting Ubuntu's installer do the resizing leaves less room for user error and is thus safer.00:19

DragoneyeWhats the delay issue when using sound?  Its like it times out somehow so I cannot hear the beginning of the sound Im playing...  If I play it right after I hear everything, but after a while its like a second is gone in silence...01:59
millertiInteresting.  So I'm testing my new server out.  It has two 12-core Ivy Bridge Xeons at 2.7Ghz.  I'm using turbostat to look at actual frequency, where I've set mprime to load one hardware thread.  That core is reporting 3.5GHz.02:00

jotanplsHi guys, I can't find Slim.conf anywhere, I've even lurked in midnight commander and it's nowhere to be found. Minimal install here, desktop02:00
millertiIt seems that core frequency is a function of package voltage, because all other cores (though idle) are reporting over 3GHz too, although slightly lower numbers.  I think that the reporting isn't very accurate because the other hyperthread on the same core is reporting a different frequency.02:01
FilyBashing-om, Yes it doesn't support later version in a v m environment. Instead I'm installing 14.04 on a vm in the PC not in the laptop02:01

runvncand a wrong ServerName02:29
jarray52runvnc: I can goto http://localhost:631. Then, Administration. Then Manage Printers. On that page, I see one printer. I can click it. Then, I can hit print page. That works.02:30
jarray52runvnc: sudo grep -R ServerName /etc/cups/* gives a server name.02:30
runvncwhat is the servername it says in there02:30
runvnccan you find that line ServerName and change it to say localhost02:31
runvncis that ServerName specified found in /etc/hosts02:31

Ruler2112Hello.  I am having a small problem and hope somebody can give me a pointer.  I'm not a newbie to linux, but my knowledge is intermittent.04:28
Ruler2112My laptop (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) apparently has the delete key (which is standard to get into the BIOS) set to restore the windoze 8 partition.  Thankfully, it didn't erase anything and the ext4 partition still exists and appears to be intact.  (I was able to pull files off of it using the system rescue CD livecd.)  The problem now is that every time I boot from the hard drive, it tries to repair windoze, fails, and reboots, repeating a04:29
Ruler2112I found directions on how to use something called boot-repair (I'm guessing to simply reinstall GRUB in the MBR), but it requires a GUI and booting from the install CD does not provide a GUI; startx produces the infamous 'no screens found'.  Xorg -reconfigure fails because it's a read-only (DVD) file system.  Any ideas or suggestions?04:29
Psil0Cybinhey guys If i am trying to run a shell script and it says permission denied , is the best way to chmod it using "sudo chmod u+x filename?" or what would be the proper permissions?04:29
Ben64Psil0Cybin: very unlikely you need the sudo04:30
juzemackPsil0Cybin: if you are already root you can usermod or chmod whatever.04:30
Psil0Cybinokay soryr silly me, if I dont even run it as root04:31
Psil0Cybinwould I chmod it to u+x?04:31
Ben64if you like04:31
juzemackyou can try04:31
Psil0Cybinwell what is the best method for shell scripts..04:31
Psil0Cybinor what is the best file permission04:31
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: just for the owner. so if you're not the owner the u+x will not give you execute permission04:31
Ben64there is no "best", it need executable bit set to be executable.04:31
Psil0CybinI am the owner,04:31
Psil0Cybinokay so your saying Ben64 any chmod that allows it to be executable, is fine, just my preferences for other permissions is my choice?04:32
Psil0Cybintype thing04:32
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: what file system is the script on?04:32
Psil0CybinhitsujiTMO: in what sense i just put it in /home/scripts04:32
Psil0Cybinits just for me to learn how to use shell scripts04:32
Ruler2112If you invoke a script using the interpreter it's meant to run under ( perl myscript ), it does not need to be executable.  If you want to run it by itself ( ./myscript ) it needs the executable flag04:32
Psil0Cybinthey are own codes :D04:32

hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: ok. well depending on what you want, chmod u+x only if and you alone are to execute, but in general its usuall faily safe to chmod +x it. the files/apps its calling and their permissions should prevent any misuse04:34

subuntuok, so i have ubuntu studio running live off this usb -- but the install launcher is not working --- what could be the case?04:46
Ruler2112nocturnal: the only problem I have with sound is that whenever I plug in my external speakers, the system sound mutes and I have to manually unmute it.  Not a big deal, but annoying.  There's an automute option in alsa, but that just controls whether the internal speakers mute when you plug in speakers, not whether the system sound mutes when this happens.04:48

sudormrf|otherI think the issue is related to a variable that needs to be added to PATH, but I am not certain.  I have tried running the job that is causing problems using the path to the program to run and that doesn't work.  tried using cd and changed to the directory where the program lives prior to the command running, nothing seems to be working.05:04

Bashing-omRuler2112: so confirm '/' is 1st hard drive's 1st partition ?05:11
Ruler2112Bashing-on: / is actually on /dev/sda405:12
Bashing-omRuler2112: OK, I can cope, and there is no separate /boot partition ?05:12
Ruler2112Bashing-om: I foolishly left the restore partitions intact when installing ubuntu in case I wanted to sell the laptop and/or go back.05:12
somsipsudormrf|other: examples on github suggest using the full path to greyhole https://github.com/gboudreau/Greyhole/blob/master/greyhole.cron.weekly05:13
Ruler2112Bashing-om: That is correct - /boot is on /dev/sda405:13

somsipleichtgewicht: oh. Didn't you have this problem about a week ago? I recognise it now I see it's a nodejs thing...05:28
leichtgewichtmore like three weeks ago :)05:28
Ruler2112bashing-om: hold on... think I might've just figured out why it's not working.  The drive came with a GPT partition table and so I have to use parted to view it - /dev/sda2 (fat32) is set as bootable.  I bet that the accidental triggering of the windoze restore procedure set this partition active05:28
leichtgewichtYes: I thought it worked but it seems it didn't.05:28
somsipleichtgewicht: ok. I didn't recognise your name but vaguely remember the issue.05:28
somsipleichtgewicht: And from memory I said before that maybe binami needs access to the node executable, and that is not added to the path as I see it05:29
leichtgewichtsomsip: yes05:30
Bashing-omRuler2112: umount /mnt/work , sudo mount /dev/sda4 /mnt ,sudo  grub-install  --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda , sudo umount /mnt .. and waiting about GPT .. this is a different horse now !05:30
somsipleichtgewicht: so why is that not in path?05:30
leichtgewichtsomsip: Even more puzzling: Why is no log file being generated?05:31
leichtgewichtEven a error message should go into the log file, shouldn't it?05:31
somsipleichtgewicht: not if there is no output05:32

sudormrf|othersomsip: mind you, this command executes fine if I initiate it myself from the command line.  it only errors out when doing it with cron.05:33
leichtgewichtis there a way to output all log statements of crontab.05:33
Ruler2112Bashing-om: If I lose the ability to boot windoze, I really don't care.  I was stupid for leaving the partition there when I installed to begin with.  Just something I saw while waiting.  Trying installing grub specifying the boot partition now...05:33
Bashing-omRuler2112:  IF that disk is GPT partitioned a SEPARATE partition IS required .. do we need to look !!!!!!05:37
Ruler2112bashing-om: /dev/sda2 is set to fat32 and is flagged as bootable.  The drive is indeed GPT.05:38
Bashing-omRuler2112: Then they above will not work .. as that installs grub to the MBR not correct for GPT . Honestly I have no experience in GPT/grub. Others will have to assist. less ya want to wait for me in my AM .. it is past my thinking time.05:40
Ruler2112Bashing-om: Got an error about crossblocks when trying to install specifying the last command.  Mounted /dev/sda2 and it has 2 directories - EFI and Temp.  EFI has Boot, Microsoft,....05:40

Ruler2112Have a good evening everybody06:06
Bashing-omRuler2112: Well, in the long term GPT has the advantage, But for a simple system I find no fault with remaining with the msdos partitioning and putting grub to the Master Boot Record. This would require that you (re-)partition that drive.06:17
Bashing-omRuler2112: in addition, repartitioning would preclude ever installing Windows again .. !06:18
silidanhi, im using the bluez package on ubuntu 12.04 and ubuntu 13.10, i got 2 usb bluetooth 3.0 + hs wifi combo dongles and i can transfer files between 2 machines with them. its just very slow (<200kByte/s) how do i need to configure the wifi /bluetooth part for higher speeds? (in win 7 these 2 dongles achieve >1 MByte/s)06:19
darkangelwhats the diffrents between Ubuntu Gnome and Ubuntu Unity?06:19
silidandarkangel: the desktop environment06:20
Ruler2112bashing-om: I just feel like I'd know what I'm doing/talking about with a regular partition table.  I have discovered something interesting.  Playing around in the recovery partition options, it gave me the ability to boot from a device, one of which was labeled ubuntu.  I'm now in my ubuntu install, but every single time I reboot, I have to go through a 3-reboot process to get into it.  I *think* all I need to do is to figure out h06:20
rwwdarkangel: one comes with Unity, one comes with GNOME06:20
Ruler2112bashing-om: with the little I've used windoze 8, that would be a good thing.06:20
Ruler2112If it weren't for classic shell, a fishing buddy of mine said he would've thrown his new laptop into saginaw bay06:21
Bashing-omRuler2112: Like I say, Grub can be installed to the EFI partition, and what is termed a "shim" to boot Windows. I am not familiar with the procedure. I just know it can be done !06:22
Ruler2112bashing-om: lol - pretty much anything can be done.  It's just a matter of figuring out how.06:24
Bashing-omRuler2112: I see it all the time, of people being too hasty to forsake Windows. There are some things in Windows that there is no alternatives. But the choice is yours. We can make both bootable. Windows just is not in my field of interest.06:24

SolidSmegHow would one install the Debian grub over the Ubuntu Grub?06:25
somsipSolidSmeg: that's a question for #debian06:27
nZacI am really struggling to get the firewall setup for access to a MySQL machine.  Anyone have any advice.  I asked over in #mysql to no avail.06:27
nZacThe problem is, that I bind the MySQL server to and then try to reset the firewall (ufw) to allow connections on 3306 however telnet from a remote machine fails.06:28
somsipnZac: how about a connection using mysql client?06:29
nZacsomsip: no lunch06:29
somsipnZac: no, i had some earlier. So what about the error message with mysql?06:29
nZacsomsip: I get a connection refused (or incorect password)06:30
nZacIt times out.06:30
somsipnZac: you have restart mysql service?06:32
Ruler2112bashing-om: FYI, the boot-repair software (which I was able to use after figuring out how to get into ubuntu) fixed the problem!  I now have a grub menu pop up with the various partitions (windoze, linux, recovery, etc) as options06:32
nZacsomsip: I can try that again...06:32
somsipnZac: my other suggestion would be to turn off ufw and test so you can see if the binding is correct, or if it's a ufw issue06:34
nZacsomsip: Let me give that a shot06:34
somsipnZac: and make sure your user access permissions are correct06:34
=== james is now known as Guest34635
nZacsomsip: If I log into the VM, I can connect to the mysql client with the credentials, so that isn't the issue06:35
Bashing-omRuler2112: Yeah I too have been "looking" and saw references to Boot-Repair" that it can fix it ! .. Glad we are over this hurdle !06:36
somsipnZac: did you know that user permissions are associated with domains in mysql?06:36
nZacsomsip: EUREKA!!!!!!!06:36
somsipnZac: eg root@localhost might be allowed but root@ might not06:37
nZacsomsip: The issue was the IP I thought the "host" machine was at was not actually that IP... so I was giving permissions to the wrong IP, therefore breaking the whole thing.06:37
nZacsomsip: 3 days... I have been working on this for 3 day!06:37
Ruler2112bashing-om: so am I... sucked having to compile kernel modules to get my wifi working and wasn't looking forward to having to do it again.  Feel inept having to resort to a GUI tool to do what probably amounts to a few simple commands...06:38
somsipnZac: k - sorted06:38
nZacsomsip: thanks for the help!06:38
Bashing-omRuler2112: I feel the same. The reason I am where I am is I too prefer the CLI and KNOW what is taking place. Terminal will never go away .06:39
Ruler2112bashing-om: Out of curiosity, where are you?  (In above context)06:40
Bashing-omRuler2112: OH mercy, 40 years++ of messing with computers, and ubuntu is my operating system of choice, I know my way around ubuntu, and have a lot more to learn.06:42
Ruler2112bashing-om: you got me on experience - I've only been alive 37 years. ;)   My first memory of a computer is my older brother bringing home a lab machine from HS and playing Quest and Zork upstairs when he wasn't home.  Then I somehow got into a DOS shell and haven't stopped learning since...06:44
Ruler2112bashing-om: While I like ubuntu, I don't know if I prefer it or freebsd.  (If BSD would make the ports tree stable and stop breaking stuff every other day, it'd be less difficult to choose.)06:46
Bashing-omRuler2112: One thing for sure, one will never quit learning when it comes to operating systems, and it is evolving so rapidly, there is no way to keep up with it all.06:46
Ruler2112basing-om: yeah - that's true.  Regardless, I feel stupid for not being able to keep up.06:47
Guest34635how about getting rid of the stuff the gets on the desk top by aim06:47
Bashing-omRuler2112: I have been open source most of my life, and the support structure of ubuntu committed me to this operating system.06:48

BlueMintHi there, i am trying to install razercfg (razer mouse driver) but am getting this error when "make install"08:48
BlueMintmake: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.08:48
AlbinoGeekSo uhh, why does Ubuntu refuse to support standards, such as VirtIO SCSI , etc?  https://db.tt/q13qFcnh  Note the complete lack of disks found.08:48
ikoniahave you read the install instructions ?08:48
BlueMintikonia, following them character by character, yes08:48
AlbinoGeekGG Ubuntu : https://db.tt/s6kPHYnh 8.4 MB disk08:50
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: don't need a comentary08:50
ikoniaBlueMint: let me take a look08:50
BlueMintikonia, nevermind. Give me 5 more minutes08:50
ikoniaBlueMint: ok, so you've downloaded the source, what's the first thing you did08:50
BlueMintI think i came here too prematurely08:50
BlueMintikonia, cmake08:50
AlbinoGeekikonia: Well, I'd love some advise on how to make Ubuntu not suck at being in a VM.08:50
BlueMintthen make08:50
ikoniaBlueMint: ok, did that complete, did you get any warnings/errors08:51
AlbinoGeekSince it obviously doesn't support VirtIO SCSI, or even VirtIO IDE.08:51
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: it's running in a vm here just fine08:51
BlueMintikonia, nope. Got the CMake files in the directory after that08:51
AlbinoGeekikonia: Alright, and what disk controller are you using?08:51
BlueMintikonia, then make gives no output08:51
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: one moment and I'll tell you08:51
BlueMintthen I sudo make install08:51
ikoniaBlueMint: ok, so if make gave no output it's unlikley it run08:52
ikoniaBlueMint: in which case that would explain why there is no target for make install08:52
AlbinoGeekUbuntu refuses to find any disks when the controller is either the VirtIO_SCSI or VirtIO, if I make it plain IDE passthru, the performance is absolutely trash; but it detects the disk.08:52
expertUbuntu/linux newbie here. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS a few days ago. For some reason, my keyboard's caps lock is working the other way around. When switched ON, it types in lower case and vice versa08:52

BlueMintikonia, I'll keep trying I guess08:53
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: one moment and I'll get you my info08:53

AlbinoGeekikonia: What, I'm literally asking what packages Ubuntu feels are so important, it must include.08:59
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: ok, so you're saying an ubuntu server minimal install installs a 15GB install ?09:00
AlbinoGeekIt's not really that vage, I asked what makes the "Minimal" install 15 GB.09:00

cfhowlettikonia, +109:23
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you're just getting random here - you complained that your default install was 15 GB - I've just proved it's not, you complained you couldn't get Virto SCSI support, I just proved you could, you complained your IO was poor, I just proved mines good, now randomly you get a boot problem09:23
AlbinoGeekHumm, what's the boot step immediately following where I'm stuck; that it's frozen on, I wonder..09:23
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: do you not think you may be the common factor here09:24
AlbinoGeekikonia: Yes, I know; I am the one that gets random issues.09:24
AlbinoGeekIt's why I'm the QA over here :/.09:24
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you don't sound like a good QA as your setup is wrong09:24
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: if your setup was right you'd get the same consistant results as everything else, the only different factor appears to be the guy at the keyboard09:24
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you complain that things are "wrong" then each time I prove they are good you move to another complaint tha tyou've not mentioned before09:25
AlbinoGeekikonia: Not entirely sure, it's an Ubuntu 12.04.3 with almost all default options, the host machine is 4x 1TB / LSI MegaRAID 9271-4i w/ CacheVault ; Dual E5-2620 v2 ; guest has 24 cores and 8G of RAM assigned.  I'm not entirely sure why I'm having any of these issues.09:25
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: I'd suggest a big part of this will be user error / lack of understanding09:25
AlbinoGeekikonia: Well, the 15 GB issue isn't an issue anymore.  Obviously there was something messy with the template I'd had, as the fresh install here is much smaller, if I could get it to boot.09:26
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: eg: you claimed the default install is 15GB - it's not, we've just proven it, the only way it's not is if you hve done something wrong09:26
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you complained you can't get virto support - I just proved it09:26
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you then complained that it was IDE - even after I showed you it was on a scsi controller09:26
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: it appears your attention to detail isn't super09:26
ikoniaso I'd expect that there will be mistakes in your setup09:26
ikoniaor your expectations are not really valid09:26
AlbinoGeekikonia: No, it never has been; I have pretty low vision.  My thing though, is that your disk should have shown up as sda* if it were the VirtIO SCSI host disk controller, which I've shown Ubuntu 12.04 can't find the disk with (in the installer at least.)09:27
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: no it shouldn't09:27
AlbinoGeekMine does in every other (non deb/ubu) distro :/.09:27
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: the virto controller displays it as vda09:27
AlbinoGeekikonia: https://db.tt/OF1Opfu7  ; sadly I can't copy-paste out of VNC09:28

OerHeksjohannes_, install restricted extras, and install libdvdread4 and perform the install-css script >> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs09:38
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you're actually not specifying the virtio device there, you're actually saying "scsi"09:38
expertActionParsnip, I have to run a bash script to correct caps lock behavior on a linux system?09:39
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: I can see earlier you load the virtio scsi - which is fine, but then you're telling the device to use the scsi module, not the virtio one09:39
johannes_ok I am goining to try this09:39
ActionParsnipexpert: its one fix...09:39
AlbinoGeekikonia: So, the issue is that Ubuntu doesn't support the "SCSI" controller as specified, or as KVM displays it?  (at least, not in 12.04.3) ; it's rather confusing that everywhere I look at it, it's virtio.09:39
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: which sort of lines up with what I'm seeing on my hosts and that official document09:39
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: I think the confusion is the device and the module thats using it09:40
AlbinoGeekikonia: I tell it to use the SCSI controller, as the "virtio" alone does not support hotplugging.  I can't just "add onto" that disk, resize it live, etc.09:40
expertActionParsnip, why do we even need a fix? why is it a problem? one keyboard!09:40
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: are you sure virtio doesn't support hot plugging I just added a virio device to my running machine and it appeared09:40
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: I really believe this line is key09:41
ikoniaDisk will show up as /dev/vd[a-z][1-9], if you migrate you need to change "root=" in Lilo/GRUB config09:41
ikoniathe official doc shows it as vda, and that ties in with what I'm seeing from my installs and my understanding of your command line09:41
AlbinoGeekikonia: Yeah see; if I add a new "vd" target device (ex: vdb) , it does not show in my /dev/ in any distro tested (Ubuntu 12.04.3 , CentOS 65; at the moment.)  Even with a rescan.09:41
AlbinoGeekikonia: If I restart the guest, it picks it up; but not before (for me at least.)09:42
AlbinoGeekYet where with the SCSI, instantly the VNC is flooded with dmesg lines about it being attached, configured, etc.09:42
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: let me just confirm that and make sure I've not tricked myself09:42
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: but I think you're adding the virtio scsi contoller, (great) but then adding a sci disk, rather than the virtio disk09:42
AlbinoGeekikonia: I add a VirtIO SCSI controller, then explicitly add SCSI disks to the controller; so that they're picked up immediately in the guest.09:43
AlbinoGeekikonia: If I specify:  DEV_PREFIX=vd TARGET=vda   on my hotattach request, the disk is not picked up in the guest until I reboot it.09:44
AlbinoGeekIf I instead specify:  DEV_PREFIX=sd TARGET=sdb   it is picked up immediately.09:44
ubottuBangla te Ubuntu bishoyok alochonar jonno #ubuntu-bd te ashun. Dhonnobad!09:44
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: yeah, I see the limitations of attaching to a running machine09:45
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: ok, so I think we see the problem here, the problem is your lack of understanding/expectations09:45
AlbinoGeekikonia: Yeah :(  Which in a cloud platform, basically makes it useless as a distro to offer.09:45
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: you're complaining that virtio disks are not sd$ - but you're adding scsi disks, not virtio disks09:45
AlbinoGeek13.10 supports it, so that's fine.09:45
ikoniawhich is not an unreasonable mistake to make09:46
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: ok, so perhaps in future, less ranting and bashing the distro, more so when it turns out it's your lack of understanding/research, next time, just explain the problem and people will work it through with you09:46
AlbinoGeekikonia: Well, I'm a cloud services provider.  12.04 not support hotplugging disks means I literally cannot use it.  It's nice that 13.10 does; so at least I can say it's a versioning issue and not just discount Ubuntu entirely; but yeah.09:47
jaaahello anyone know how in ubuntu 13.10 i can install rar ?09:47
AlbinoGeekikonia: And yeah, I always resort to ranting by default when it comes to Ubuntu, as I've had far too much bad experience in the past with stupid things (like Unity, but I'm sure you guys hear enough about that already.)09:47
ikoniaAlbinoGeek: cloud servicing provider.....perhaps a little more research....09:48

rigo88it worked perfect with another network before. just to prevent the pre-troubleshooting. no sw/hw change was made since then.11:25
hitsujiTMO!it | Asusf3s maybe it might be easier to describe in italian11:26
ubottuAsusf3s maybe it might be easier to describe in italian: Vai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)11:26
rigo88so no hw/sw change at all. only moved from an appartment to another, and already modified  the network/interfaces file with the new network data. ifconfig wlan0 down -> up, service networking restart, nor reboot helped. checking dmesg right now.11:28
daftykinsrigo88: so you've had no system updates in the meantime?11:30
daftykinsrigo88: have a read of this arch thread for fun: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=14605211:30
rigo88daftykins: i always choose "no automatic updates" when installing new system.11:31
hitsujiTMOrigo88: can you pastebin the output of: lspci -knn | grep Network -A211:31
rigo88daftykins: i saw this article but this is archlinux11:31
rigo88no not really since i dont have network connection.11:31
daftykinsput it in a text file then pastebin from another device11:31
daftykinsrigo88: yeah, doesn't make it 100% irrelevant though i'd expect11:32
OnkelTemHi all11:32

OnkelTemHow to install Android Developer Tools on Ubuntu 12.04? I don't like the package from google as it does't respect FHS at all, containing everything in one directory11:33
daftykinsrigo88: i saw another comment elsewhere suggesting to kill all instances of wpa_supplicant then tell NM to reconnect11:35
ikoniaOnkelTem: there should be documentation on the project pages for install instructions11:35
cfhowlettOnkelTem, ask on xda-developers.com11:35
OnkelTemcfhowlett: you suggest asking on forums?11:35
rigo88if i turn the device off with 100% ok wlan, take the pc 300 meter to another appartment, change the relevant datas in the interfaces file reboot and it works not. annoying.11:35
ikoniaseems a pretty clear suggestion as well as checking the projects pages/documentation11:35
cfhowlettOnkelTem, they are pretty much the experts on android - unlike most of us here ...11:35
daftykinsrigo88: take a look in daemon.log also for further info11:35

OnkelTemcfhowlett: pretty sure among 1736 nick some should definitely develop for android :)11:37
ikoniaOnkelTem: yes, and they will install it using official packages or methods personal to them11:37
rigo88are maybe any stored temporary network datas anywhere and a command to clean them? like in windows the "ipconfig /flushdns" and registerdns?11:37
OnkelTemikonia: or use proper PPA11:37
ikoniaOnkelTem: so a.) reading the doucmentation on the projects web page b.) asking other android developers would be the correct approach11:37
daftykinsrigo88: no11:37

OnkelTemikonia: that's what I started with. I found one actually, but doubt in it's quality. Anyway thanks for assistance11:39

daftykinswhat is it, virtualbox and you copied the disk image?12:09
daftykinswhy not just install fresh?12:09

cloneGbecause it is a webserver I want to use as a DC installing samba412:09
cloneGhow do I remove the proxy config?¿12:10
daftykinseaj: yep, for example years ago when i used to use a transparent squid cache proxy on my LAN, i set it higher than the old winzip download installer, then it would serve me that over LAN if i went to get it again ;)12:10
eaj@daftykins: the issue is, I keep rebuilding lots of VMs locally all the time & it keeps downloading lots of packages from various sources (apt, composer, pear etc) each time12:10
eaj@daftykins: ok great, thanks12:10
daftykinseaj: sounds like it'd make more sense to run a local APT mirror instead of that12:10
Touhou11You can use an apt cache server12:10
daftykinsif you have a spare box + disk space12:10
eaj@dfatykins I thought of that, but it is not just for apt12:11

daftykins^yeah, reset?13:07
ActionPa1snipdramas: try:  sudo nice -20 top13:07
cloneGhey its working...I thought I had a proxy config somewhere but now I am doubting it13:07
ActionPa1snipdramas: you can then use top to kill the process )as root)13:07
Ben64ActionPa1snip: you didn't read the pastebin. dramas is running as root13:08
ActionPa1snipBen64: oh, well it will still work the same :)13:08
Ben64not after the kill command in the pastebin didn't work already :|13:08
Ben64easy solution - reboot13:09
dramasi cannot reboot :(13:09
hex20decActionPa1snip: None of the links you provided seem to match my scenario. =\13:09
Ben64dramas: sure you can, 'reboot'13:09
dramasdont be a jerk. that's a machine that a) i cannot get to if it doesnt come up clean and b) will not come up clean13:10
Ben64it's a bad idea to rely on a computer to be 100%13:10
dramasand yet we do this every day.13:10
dramashave you considered not actually discussing philosophy with me this morning?13:11
Ben64bottom line - you need to reboot13:11
Potato_hello there13:11
dramasis there no way i can get rid of the iowait?13:11
hex20decLol @ dramas13:11
ActionPa1sniphex20dec: you can use the boot fixer to set an option using the GUI, it will add a boot option to your OS and make the TTY disaplay13:13

kkkkkkkkhi, all , i did some customisation to ubuntu and then created a bootable ISO image, using Remastersys, now, suppose i have 10 computers, connected with each other with local network, not internet. How do i install it simultaneously to all the computers.13:22
kkkkkkkkwith all my customisation and other settings13:23
daftykinsmake 10 CDs? :)13:23
kkkkkkkk10 computers may change to 100 computers, i really need some way to save time13:23
dramasi mean kickstart!13:23
daftykinskkkkkkkk: PXE then13:23
kkkkkkkkdaftykins: i am confused, please guide, i mean, there are pxe, netboot, parallel something,13:24
hex20decActionPa1snip: Didn't fix it! =[13:24
kkkkkkkkdaftykins: how to install using PXE on all computers, all at once13:24
Ben64you could install on one, image it to the others13:25
kkkkkkkkBen64: yes, i want the same, how to do that13:25
kkkkkkkkis there any need to have same hardware on all systems13:25
Ben64i've never done it, but in theory you could pxe boot some small linux client, and have them all use netcat to listen for the image, and have one act as the server and send the image out broadcast to all computers on the network, and they'd all write the image at once13:26
sh0tisn't it possible to use PXE on all the instances u want to install13:28
Ben64i suppose, if it doesn't require user input13:29
kkkkkkkkBen64: i am confused13:29
sh0tohhh Ben64 i didn't see that request he doesnt want to interact during installation13:29
Ben64well i'm guessing he doesn't, 100 computers would take a while13:30
kkkkkkkkBen64: i just want to install simulataneously on all computers, without installing it one by one to all13:30
kkkkkkkknow, what is the easiest way,except one by one to install13:31
sh0tyes but it's not clear what u mean by 'simoultaneously'13:31
Ben64i described how i would do it above13:31
kkkkkkkkit can take 2 hours. I will adjust. But install should be simultaneously to all13:32
hex20decTake apart the hdds and ghost them13:32
hex20decI mean, gather them all and then ghost them13:32
kkkkkkkkhex20dec: ghost will work on any type of hardware?13:33
kkkkkkkki never used ghost13:33
hex20decSince it's linux it would13:33
hitsujiTMOkkkkkkkk: sounds like you want to do a multicast ghost? only software i know of that does this is symantec ghost13:33
Ben64why not netcat like i already suggested? :|13:33
kkkkkkkkhex20dec: thanks, but symantec ghost is not free, i think13:33
wessmanis it possible to give a user root access without being forced to use sudo? i know its not recommended but I want to do it anyway13:34
jjavaholicis it possible to start nautilus without the sidebar.13:34
hex20decIf you're going to be doing it on100 pcs, you must make some money. I guess you can affort it, no?13:34
Ben64wessman: there is no good reason to not use sudo13:34
hitsujiTMOkkkkkkkk: 30 day trial for the ghost suite :P13:34
hex20decThere you go, kkkkkkkk ^13:35
kkkkkkkkhitsujiTMO: well, this is nice , one more question13:35
Ben64or, netcat.... installable on any linux system13:35
CarlFK1kkkkkkkk: I think you want pxe + preseed13:36
kkkkkkkkBen64: thanks, i will take a look at netcat and ghost13:36
CarlFK1kkkkkkkk: oh.. that kind of install.  look for clonezilla.13:36
wessmanBen64, I would like to create a temporary ftp account that has all rights to /var/www/ but I dont want the apache/www-group to have this. The easiest way I could come up with was a temp root account and use SSHFTP13:36
kkkkkkkkclonezilla, ghost, pxe, netcat, i am confused guys13:37
hex20decOh wow, I didn't know clonezilla has multicast13:37
hex20decI feel bad for kkkkkkkk. There are a lot of solutions, you'll need to do you homework and see what's best for you.13:37
Ben64clonezilla is good, i'd recommend against ghost, its non-free13:38
gordonjcpkkkkkkkk: what exactly are you trying to do?13:38
kkkkkkkki don't want to remove harddrive from each pc, since they are sealed and are under warranty13:38
hex20decI agree, clonezilla13:38
hex20deckkkkkkkk: You don't need to with multicasting13:38
gordonjcpkkkkkkkk: are you trying to install multiple machines?13:39
kkkkkkkkgordonjcp: i want to install custom ubuntu linux, simultaneously to all pcs13:39
hex20deckkkkkkkk: Read the first paragraph http://clonezilla.org/13:39
hex20decLast sentence clearly solves your problem13:39
kkkkkkkklet me see, hex20dec and thanks all13:40
kkkkkkkki was confused with so much solutions, i am still confused, but start with clonezilla13:40
hex20deckkkkkkkk: Sure =D, you may want to check the limitations as well.13:40
gordonjcpkkkkkkkk: simultaneously, or concurrently?13:40
hex20decYes, clonezilla is the way to go imo13:40
gordonjcpkkkkkkkk: do you care if they all finish at the same wallclock time?13:41
kkkkkkkkgordonjcp: yes, installation on all should finish at same time13:41

imghostDammitJim, its just your internet connection is slow now so do test it at16:20

DammitJimyeah... it freaked me out that the ipv6 line wasn't showing up16:21
DammitJimbut now it is16:21
hitsujiTMOTJ-: 50% of the packets tho?16:21
DammitJimdo test what, imghost ?16:21
TJ-hitsujiTMO: Depends on how much traffic there is, I've seen higher on IPv6 only interfaces16:21
DammitJimI was able to get the file from another server16:22

DammitJimimghost, I don't have a browser on this machine16:23

amelk1l, im sorry can u explain to me how i do that?do i just type it in the terminal?20:19
k1lamel: yes20:19
lvmdoes anyone know if i can preserve my data on lvm if i am reinstalling ubuntu20:19
litropyMonkeyDust, good idea, thanks20:20
k1lamel: you can install the package "pastebinit" and then use "uname -a | pastebinit" and "lsb_release -a | pastebinit"20:20

ubottutortue, please see my private message20:22
k1lamel: sorry, without the " "20:22
TJ-rustuptwist: before that, you need to conquer the shrinking of the Windows 279GB partition, either via Windows or using gparted from the Ubuntu installer20:22
k1lamel: that was just to show you that this part is the command20:22
ameloh lol ok20:22
rustuptwistTJ-: whichever you think is better, its your call.20:23
TJ-rustuptwist: If you can't create the space to install Ubuntu into, there's no point altering the partition table20:23
rustuptwistTJ-: ok i am in win7 disk mangmt right now. what should i attempt?20:23
TJ-rustuptwist: Since Win7's Disk Management failed you'd best try Ubuntu's gparted20:23
amelk1l http://paste.ubuntu.com/6839928/20:24
TJ-rustuptwist: Oh OK, if you're in Disk Management already, select the C volume, right-click, from the context menu choose "Shrink"20:24
TJ-rustuptwist: If it actually finishes 'querying the disk' this time, reduce the size to 179GB or as close to that as possible, which'll give you 100MB for Ubuntu20:25
k1lamel: ok, please show that: "dpkg -l |grep linux-"20:25
rustuptwistTJ-: ok waiting for the meantime20:25
TJ-rustuptwist: ping me when D.M. has shrunk the volume, or has failed20:26

Abbotthi guys, I was wondering if you could help me with tunneling. I am using university internet so all of the ports are blocked when i check them with tools online, but I can obviously use the internet so I know there's SOME way to get to the web.

litropyMy college network uses PEAP/MSCHAPv2 authentication without a certificate, and when I boot up to the login screen, it attempts to authenticate, something happens where it requests the password and subsequently asks to ignore the cert. All of these credentials are already specified and saved in nm's connections. If I can get my (ubuntu account) login typed fast enough, I can bypass this whole action, and network-manger authenticates using the crede20:34
litropyntials it already knows, without further input. Basically, I want to make it so that either nm waits until login to attempt authentication, or can access all needed credentials without account login, safely. Because otherwise, while I'm trying to type my account password, I get prompted for wifi login credentials, which is both annoying and unneeded.20:34
k1lTJ-: yes. i did look if the headers are installed and now if the package did install without any issue.20:34

k1lTJ-: ah ok. the user mentioned he installed the nvidiawebsite driver first. so that is some left over20:36
TJ-amel: k1l: That's the standard Ubuntu package, probably from xorg-edgers20:37
amelTJ: you're right cause i did install from there20:37
rustuptwistTJ-:  select try ubuntu yes?20:37
TJ-rustuptwist: Yes.20:38
k1lamel: do a "sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*" to remove all nvidia stuff. there is some mixeup from the different versions20:38
amelK1l: ok doing it now20:38
TJ-rustuptwist: I assume Windows refused to Shrink the volume?20:38
litropyI'm thinking it's an issue with there being no certificate, because nm logs into my home network using WPA at the account login screen just fine.20:39
rustuptwistTJ-: you got it :(20:39
k1lamel: after that do a "dpkg -l | grep nvidia" and show it again please20:39
TJ-rustuptwist: Grrrr! Let's hope the volume isn't too fragmented for gparted to be able to shrink it using the NTFS tools20:39
TJ-k1l: amel: might need to ensure the xorg-edgers PPA is removed, if that's not already been done20:40
rustuptwistTJ-: no i ran a program called defragger and it said it was 'good'20:40
k1lTJ-: he didnt say he used a ppa but loaded the driver direct from nvidia hp20:40
TJ-rustuptwist: OK ... that doesn't mean that all the fragments have been moved to the start of the file-system though, it only means there is minimal break-up of clusters20:40
ikoniadefragger ???20:40
TJ-k1l: yeah, bad communications the bane of remote support :)20:41
rustuptwistTJ-: ok in ubuntu desktop now20:41
amelok guys ill send it as soon as it finnishes20:41
TJ-rustuptwist: I'm trying to recall how we start it manually.... I think you need to press Alt+F2, then type "gksudo gparted"20:42
Wiz_KeeDHow do I test the limit of the wireless card itself, It seems much slower than my previous one and I don't know if it's because of the encoding or something else20:43
Wiz_KeeDI dont know where to start basically20:43
rustuptwistTJ-: ok gparted is showing 4 sda's and 1 unallocated (1mb)20:44
TJ-rustuptwist: Select the 279GB NTFS file-system and shrink it to 179GB if it will20:46

Wiz_KeeDI got the data TJ-  but not many ideas on what to do with it, also I doesn't snoop around my  low speed to what I should get :(20:54

TJ-Wiz_KeeD: focus on signal to noise ratio to being with, if the local radio waves are noisy that won't be so good, which is one reason for bad performance20:55
TJ-rustuptwist: Yes, you have to "Apply" the changes you 'queue up' - that's to prevent casual mistakes20:55
TJ-amel: OK, do you want the latest nvidia driver (331)? reasons for that would be a recent nvidia chipset, or to workaround bugs in older driver versions20:56
amelTJ: i want the most recent one or any that work please20:56
MonkeyDustAbbott  so you're asking for advice on how to do something that is not allowed20:57

muessigbok. the point is, that i wated to "make" a c bootloader for the atmega and that didn't worked on windows 7 so i tried linux. well when i search for gcc i only get messages viewer21:06

AbbottI will start reading into it. Do you have any specific programs you would suggest I look at for setting this up?21:10
muessigbah well one more thing21:10
TJ-Abbott: "stunnel" would be the best bet, to set up a TLS tunnel on port 443 of your remote proxy/relay server that the internal PC connects out to.21:13
amelTJ: nothing comes up when i add sudo find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -type f -name 'nvidia*21:13
TJ-amel: "uname -r"21:13
TJ-amel: According to the installation output it installed to "/lib/modules/3.11.0-15-generic/updates/dkms/" so check that directory. Or take a punt on "sudo modprobe nvidia_331 && lsmod | grep nvidia"21:15

TJ-Bray90820: "man udev" and see the section "Rules files"; use that as a basis for searching for examples on the web21:34

Bray90820TJ-: i know how to start a bash script at startup but if i do that then the script fails because I need to click a button on my mouse for it to be recognized21:44

glitsj16Bray90820: why not add the script to your session 'Startup Applications'?21:49
TJ-Bray90820: I suspect then that it does a bluetooth connect when you press the button, which takes us back to using udev. You can monitor it to find out. Have the mouse off/disconnected/asleep, then at a terminal do "udevadm monitor --kernel --property --subsystem-match=bluetooth" and then connect/wake the mouse. You should see a bunch of events which tell you what is happening. It it is connecting, you can use those as the basis of a udev rules file in "/etc/udev/21:49
TJ-rules.d/" that will execute your own script21:49

rustuptwistTJ-:   the two numbers are different, vastly different21:51
Lauxleyhere is the end of the log : http://dpaste.com/1575786/21:51
Bray90820I'm not sure if the script will execute before the button is clicked21:52
donvitois it possible to change cpu frequency from 3.0 to 2.4 on ubuntu machine?21:52
Bray90820glitsj16: I'm not sure if the script will execute before the button is clicked21:52
TJ-rustuptwist: aha, that's my fault! sorry, just realised that the sdb1 partition is larger than the source partition!21:52
bekksLauxley: Pastebin the entire output of "sudo apt-get update" please.21:52
rustuptwistTJ-:  yeah I was kinda wondering about size difference. ok what next21:53
glitsj16Bray90820: i might be misunderstanding the issue, but i mean you can let the script itself click your mouse without your manual intervention21:53
Bray90820glitsj16: is that possible with a bash script?21:53
sup3rmananyone know which package has the acer special keys support?21:53
glitsj16Bray90820: yes, look at xdotool21:54

TJ-rustuptwist: let's redo the MD5 on sdb1 but use the correct length! "sudo dd if=/dev/sdb1 bs=4096 count=1040214 | md5sum"21:55
bekksLauxley: Use ppa-purge to disable all non-default repos, and remove all packages installed from those repos. Note down the repos and the packages you've installed, and try the upgrade again.21:55
rustuptwistTJ-: the USB is only 8gb21:56
sup3rmanthey seem to come with ubuntu, but not some ubuntu-based distros21:56
TJ-rustuptwist: Yes, which is twice as big as the partition we copied. So this new command reads the exact amount of data in the file-system21:56
Lauxleybekks: thx for your time, will try that, is there a way to automatically remove them though, because there is no way i can tell what package i installed from what repo21:57
glitsj16Bray90820: the comand would be something like "xdotool click 1" .. Left mouse is 1, middle is 2, right is 3, wheel up is 4, wheel down is 521:57
Bray90820glitsj16: that may not work because it won't be able to find a mouse to click21:58
TJ-glitsj16: I think the objective is to auto-run the script *after* the bluetooth mouse has connected21:58
Bray90820glitsj16: that is a soft click i may need a hard click21:58
King_DuckZhello, can somebody help me starting idmapd (for nfs4) on ubuntu please? on some website I see I have to add NEED_IDMAPD="yes", on my system I just do systemctl enable rpc-idmapd... how to do that on ubuntu?21:58
glitsj16TJ-: Bray90820: ow okay, ignore please, apologies for the confusion21:58
Bray90820TJ-: I am a complete noob with this stuff as you can tell21:59
King_DuckZI added the NEED_IDMAPD to /etc/default/nfs-common but when I mount the nfs share I still see the wrong uid/gid21:59
rustuptwistTJ-: how long do you think before we are ready to do the install?22:00
TJ-rustuptwist: Once this MD5 is confirmed, it should take no more than 10 minutes to re-partition and put the data back in a logical partition, and then you'll be able to install22:01

TJ-rustuptwist: Does that MD5 sum match the one for sda4 you generated earlier?22:01
rustuptwistTJ-: yes22:02
TJ-rustuptwist: Fab! we can get on then! You can start gparted again Alt+F2 then "gksudo gparted"22:02
TJ-rustuptwist: First, ensure you have the sda hard disk selected (not the USB sdb!)22:02
TJ-rustuptwist: Next, delete sda4 (the 3.9GB) primary partition22:03
TJ-rustuptwist: Now Create a new Extended partition (you'll have to figure that out as you go, based on what you see)22:03
amelTJ: ive done sudo service lightdm restart but all i got was a black screen22:04
bekksLauxley: you can use ppa-purge and log the output.22:04
TJ-amel: Check the logs at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for indications of (EE)rrors22:04
rustuptwistTJ-:  select the unallocated one, that we created earlier 104.gb or the sda2 174gb?22:05
Bray90820TJ-: Can you explain udev a bit more22:05
amelTJ: i was forced too do sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*22:05
TJ-rustuptwist: The 104GB, the space we created22:05
amelthat was the only way to get back on here22:06
ameli also did sudo apt-get remove --purge22:06
rustuptwistTJ-: ok i am deleting the sda4 (HP TOOLS) 3.97 partition, correct22:07
TJ-rustuptwist: Once you've created the Extended to use all that space, then Create a Logical partition inside it and set its "New size" to 4064 MiB22:08
TJ-rustuptwist: Correct; (delete sda4 HP TOOLS)22:09
Lauxleybekks: the packages i'm supposed to purge are in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ right ?22:10
bekksLauxley: The repos, not the packages.22:10
Lauxleybekks: heh yeah the repos22:10
rustuptwistTJ-: ok let me be certain: 1. delete 3.97 first, then 2. create a new extended partition somewhere, or in the 104gb unallocated space?22:11
amelTJ: i didnt see any errors on the logs22:11
jackDanielsSonHello guys I may have some questions in a few if you all dont mind. but for now I'm just chilling here22:11
TJ-rustuptwist: Correct. 1. delete sda4    2. create Extended partition in the 104GB free space    3. Create Logical partition of 4064MiB22:12
King_DuckZso, nobody knows how to start idmapd?22:12
Lauxleybekks: sorry i can't figure out what the repo name is ..22:12

microshello. i am sending my process sigterm and the handler runs as expected. the last line of the handler is exit(0); yet the exit status $? seems to indicate 137 (128+9 = sigkill) any ideas? the process sending sigterm is a child of the parent. the parent exits and then the child prints the return code and exits as well.22:22
TJ-amel: can you pastebin the result of "ls -latr /var/log/Xorg*"22:23
amelTJ: sure22:23

neredsenvyUsing Gnome Tweak Tool or something else is it possible to change UI Scaling for specific monitor. I have two monitors one is 15" 1444xN and other is 32" 1920xN on my second monitor the UI Scaling is at 100% and it looks ok but it's nasty for work.22:30
TJ-amel: Those log files indicate you've managed to start multiple X servers at different times (by the numeric suffix). I'd guess the ".0" log-files are the initial X server startup and the ".1" might be the fail-safe log.22:31
neredsenvyNow Gnome Tweak tool allows you to set UI Scaling under Desktop but it does this for all screens so I endup with good looking UI/Text on 32" screen and very small text in main screen.22:31
Lauxleybekks: sorry i'm stuck again, http://pastebin.com/rXbW9czm, ppa-purge ppa:jcfp/ppa worked, but i can't figure out the other repos name :/22:31

bekksLauxley: Just try https://private-ppa.launchpad.net/commercial-ppa-uploaders/steam/ubuntu as the repo name to be removed by ppa-purge22:33
TJ-amel: The contents of the file... you should be able to do "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log"22:33

Lauxleybekks: http://pastebin.com/tVzV6iJq22:35
bekksLauxley: you could try removing the PPA from the software-center, as you installed it from there.22:36
Lauxleybekks: but then it won't purge the packages i installed from it ?22:37
bekksLauxley: correct22:37
Lauxleybekks: ill try that anyway22:37
bekksLauxley: you could use synaptic then to remove all packages that are "locally" installed afterwards.22:37
tiblockHi. Im newbie in linux and i have question about how it works. Official drivers for video cards dont work in latest ubuntu because they is not opensource and made for "current" xorg server/kernel/dependencies. So you need dependencies that was "current" when driver was made. Is that correct?22:38
microsif a child sends a parent sigterm, and the parent handler catches it and calls exit(0); shouldnt the exit status $? of the process be 0?  I am receiving 137 (128+9 == sigkill). very strange. ideas? thanks.22:38
shinobi_oneQuestion: Will it be easier to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 or from 13.10 to 14.04?22:38
Lauxleybekks: ok thx ill check it out22:38
bekksmicros: why do you think that's strange?22:39
shinobi_oneI'm going to be installing a Server version of Ubuntu, just need to know if 13.10 to 14.04 is easier than 12.04 to 14.04 :)22:39
bekksshinobi_one: It's basically the same - just one step.22:39
glitsj16shinobi_one: both will need 1 jump so it shouldn't make any difference22:39
microswell, i sent sigterm and called exit with 0. so i would have expected the exit status to be 0. if i hadnt exited, i would have expected 143 (sigterm)... not sure how 137 (sigkill) got involved.22:40
daftykinsshinobi_one: LTS releases can only be upgraded between once 14.04 gets a .1 release usually i think22:40
rustuptwistTJ-:  net connection on laptop dropped so cant paste results. what are we looking for?22:40
TJ-amel: Right! You've got a dual GPU PC with an Intel+Nvidia 'bumblebee' configuration. The Intel driver is loading but the nvidia driver is no-where to be seen, possibly because you're deleted it. I also don't see the open-source nouveau driver, which suggests it is blacklisted still22:40
TJ-rustuptwist: Did you start the 'dd' copy from sdb1 to sda5 ?22:40
shinobi_onedaftykins: I don't understand what you mean, sorry.22:40
amelTJ: i i deleted it a few minutes ago cause i had a black screen22:41
shinobi_onebekks, glitsj16: you're saying it I won't have to do extra work in either case? Both have a straight upgrade to 14.04?22:41
bekksshinobi_one: correct.22:41
microsso is this strange, or normal behavior?22:41
daftykinsshinobi_one: so after some time, 14.04 will reach a 14.04.1 (sort of like Windows getting a first Service Pack) - that's when 12.04.x can be upgraded directly to 14.0422:41
TJ-amel: That isn't the correct approach, you can't fix it if you remove the driver ;)22:41
bekksmicros: I'd consider that to be "normal".22:41
microshow come?22:41
rustuptwistTJ-: the last command you gave me sudo dd if=/dev....22:41
amelTJ: true lol, how can i fix it?22:41
shinobi_onedaftykins: ahhh gotcha.. but 13.10 should go direct to 14.04 ?22:42
shinobi_onedaftykins: without this wait?22:42
amelTJ: and hopefully now that you know i have 2 graphic cards itll be easier to fix it22:42
rustuptwistTJ-: 4.3gb copied 197.538 s, 21.6 MB/s22:42
bekksmicros: I consider everything else rather than the child exiting itself with exit(0) to be forced somehow, resulting in a non.zero exit code.22:43
daftykinsshinobi_one: ultimately, what are you setting up a server for?22:43
shinobi_onedaftykins: a code repository among other things, needs to be a server :P22:43
microsin this case, it was the parent though22:43
daftykinsshinobi_one: ok - and how many times do you like doing things, to get them working?22:44
TJ-rustuptwist: Great! OK ... you can "Install Ubuntu" now and it'll see there's that 104GB of unallocated space to use22:44
microschild sent the parent sigterm, parent caught it and exited with 0. so why 137 when i echo $?22:44
Lauxleybekks: so i disabled the repo, removed the 'local' packages in synaptic (there was only skype and steam), and still get the same exact error when i run do-release-upgrade22:44
microsthat doesnt sound expected at all22:44
bekksmicros: sigterm is non-zero.22:44
bekksLauxley: Then pastebin the output again...22:44
shinobi_onedaftykins: once 14.04 comes out i'll just stay on LTS22:44
bekksLauxley: along with sudo apt-get update22:44
TJ-micros: Are you sure your signal-handler caught the signal; 137 is the SIGTERM exit code when there is no handler22:45
bekksshinobi_one: Just use 12.04 and decide until 2017 wether you want to update or not.22:45
microsok, lets rephrase. if you dont catch a signal like sigterm and exit, then $? would be 143, sigterm, right?  if you catch the signal and then exit with exit(0) from the context of the signal handler, would the program return status be 0 or something else? maybe my expectation of exiting from a signal handler is wrong22:45
micros137 is sigkill22:45
shinobi_onebekks: but it's only ~ a few months until 14.04 :D22:45
micros143 is sigterm22:45
=== gbyers[Away] is now known as g_byers
TJ-micros: sorry, I meant 143 is the exit code for SIGTERM ... so something is KILLing your process22:45
microsdefintely caught. i see logoutput22:45
bekksshinobi_one: And?22:46
microshow can i come to know what?22:46
microsi cant imagine why22:46
daftykinsshinobi_one: i personally don't like upgrades at all, so you could play with whichever you like, make notes as you go for what you do, then if the worst comes to the worst, starting from scratch with 14.04 will be smooth playing \o/22:46
shinobi_onebekks: i'm a stickler for new and improved ;)22:46
bekksshinobi_one: Then why do you want to use LTS? :)22:46
=== fl_0|afk is now known as fl_0
shinobi_onebekks: because new and improved on *sever* means i want LTS but the latest LTS, not necessarily the latest ubuntu, just latest LTS22:47
* Korny scratches his head22:47
bekksshinobi_one: The latest LTS is 12.0422:47
shinobi_onebekks: for a few more months yes22:47
bekksshinobi_one: And thats it. Currently, 12.04 is the latest.22:47
shinobi_onebekks: if 12.04 to 14.04 is the same jump (amount of work for me) as 13.10 to 14.04, i'll probably roll 12.04 until 14.04 comes out22:48
Kornyits not like 12.04 is so far behind anyhow, it has the latest kernal and all security upgrades.  Big difference in the UI honestly22:48
shinobi_oneKorny: which I don't mind because I'm talking server22:48

TJ-amel: Ensure the drivers are correctly installed (again), reboot to clean things up, if/when the GUI doesn't start correctly switch to TTY1 with Ctrl+Alt+F1 (which should get you a text console) and then investigate the most recent log-files for Xorg. If there is no text console, just a black screen, you'll need to force the uvesafb driver to load from the GRUB menu option in order to have a console framebuffer.22:52

neredsenvyk1l: So I have to make my acc root : P22:57
k1lneredsenvy: that is a user. and running blindly everything with sudo is a bad idea.22:57

k1lneredsenvy: you are really really going to break your system22:58

k1ldonvito: see top (or htop) in terminal. or use the systemmonitor in gui22:58
neredsenvyk1l: It's annoying because every time I need file explorer to copy/move files in my var/rails/www directory I need to run sudo nautilus but after 10min I will forget I launched it from console and then i close that console and GUI window closes with it22:58

donvitohow to restart sshd daemon?23:04
neredsenvyWhat annoys me is I run sublime text via GUI and then I can't save/edit any files under my var/www folder ...23:04
k1lneredsenvy: again: put your user in the group that is owner of that folder and files23:05

Kornysudo service ssh restart ?23:05
glitsj16kingfisher64: i use timeshift, very happy with it .. as with all backup software it's a good idea to do some testing, including the restore functionality so you know what to do when needed23:05
TJ-neredsenvy: Then you need to amend ownership permissions. Your editing user needs to be a member of the group that owns /var/www/, and that directory and its contents all need "chmod -R g+w ..." permissions23:06
donvitonope the users are still loged in23:06
Kornysudo service ssh stop ?23:06
amelTJ: installing irssi now... after that then ill install sudo apt-get nvidia-current 331?23:06
jayarhow do i put sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer on a usb flash so i can install it on my laptop?23:06
Kornyif you stop the service it should disconnect them23:06
kingfisher64i'm saving over a local network, I imagine that's ok with timeshift glitsj16?23:06
donvitoit will disconect me too23:06
Kornywell that restart should have as well23:07
kalekip1_Does anybody know how I can make my gnome terminal semi-transparent? I'm on 13.10 and I don't have the "background" tab everybody talks about.23:07
donvitothats not the answer i want23:07
glitsj16kingfisher64: sure, that's a supported backup location23:07
Lauxleybekks: at this point i think i should just format my system drive and install from a fresh CD right ?23:07
Lauxleyi basically lost all my apps anyway ..23:07
TJ-amel: No, "sudo apt-get install nvidia-331"23:08
KornyYou didn't say you were remote....23:08
kingfisher64there's a ton of options in Ubuntu. Enjoyed my first week with the system glitsj16.23:08
kalekip1_My terminal was previously semi-transparent, but not anymore. I can't remember what I did to make it transparent.23:08
amelTJ: okone last question.. how will i use pastbinit on TTy123:08
Jordan_Udonvito: Korny: Just stopping sshd doesn't close existing connections.23:09
glitsj16kingfisher64: :) true, options might make it confusing at first, but that'll get better every day as you get to know your system23:09
TJ-amel: just as I showed you earlier, no different. It'll report the pastebin URL, which you can type into the IRC session. Remember, you can start the IRC client on TTY2 or TTY3 etc.23:09
glitsj16kalekip1_: gnome-terminal?23:09
kalekip1_glitsj16: Yes, the transparency :/23:10
Jordan_Udonvito: Why are you trying to log off all users (except yourself?) that are logged in via ssh?23:10
donvitomy username was logged 3 times23:10
kingfisher64only other thing I've got to get is a power management app with a GUI (if possible). any recommendations?23:10
donvitoso i killed 2 sessions of me23:10
donvitoi found solution23:10
donvitoJordan_U i can do whatever i like in my server, if u know the answer just asnwer it23:11
amelTJ: ok ill try my best23:11
glitsj16kalekip1_: right-click should give you 'profiles' > profile preferences .. then it's the background tab iirc23:11
TJ-rustuptwist: Is it installing now?23:11
kalekip1_glitsj16: Yes, but I don't see that tab. :/23:11
kalekip1_glitsj16: I looked everywhere on the internet, I can't seem to find it.23:12
kalekip1_glitsj16: I have every tab except that one -.-23:12
Jordan_Udonvito: The answer depends on your end goal. See http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#goal23:12
glitsj16kalekip1_: odd, did you try purging the settings and start afresh yet?23:12
kalekip1_glitsj16: A fresh version?23:13
glitsj16kalekip1_: not of the app itself, but its settings23:13
kalekip1_glitsj16: No, where can I do that?23:13
glitsj16kalekip1_: hang on, i'm on a different terminal emulator so i need to check where it saves its prefs23:14
kalekip1_glitsj16: OK, take your time ;)23:15

rustuptwistTJ-: Yeah. Quite slow. I should have use edubuntu disc as that is the ultimate goal but...23:18

ofhcbut nothing else works23:27

Bashing-omSweetGuM: Yeah, after establishing a wired connection -> update/upgrade and Additional Utilities. Will find the driver ya need and install it.23:30
Jordan_Uwotan147: Ext4 filesystems have stanadard *NIX permissions, the cleanest solution to this problem would probably be to allow world read+write to all files / directories on this external drive, but it depends on what type of files the drive contains. Do *not* simply chmod -R without thinking about the possible negative consequences.23:30
samertmk1l: I don't have a windows key :P I'm on a model m23:30

phil-nswell, the point of using a database client would be to pull or manipulate some data.23:50
phil-nseirgo, you'll need a database of data to play with, if you don't have a public one (or part of a hosting package you own) then yeah, you'll need to install the server part too.23:51
