TJ-raspberrypifan: which version of Ubuntu?00:02
ubottuLTS to LTS upgrades are not offered automatically until the .1 release has been issued. Ubuntu 14.04.1 is due for release on 24th July, and you will only see an option to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 after that date.00:03
barnexhisto: is it possible to install in uefi mode with netinstaller?00:03
histobarnex: yes00:03
barnexOk, I'll do that then, thanks.00:04
histobarnex: np, you'll want to use gpt partition table also00:04
barnexyeah, I have gpt partition table, thanks00:04
TJ-raspberrypifan: OK, not a lot I can find. There were a lot of problems with 12.04 but they seem to have been solved with updated usb_modeswitch packages00:05
raspberrypifanis there some kind of auto ulility for usb modems?00:05
histobarnex: I doubt you will see any speed improvements00:05
historaspberrypifan: network-manager can use them00:06
LucaS05histo can you help me?00:06
histoLucaS05: pastebin the output of netstat -tan00:06
raspberrypifani see this network-manager come into play when i shut down the vm and it tries to shut that down. maybe its trying to autostart?00:06
TJ-raspberrypifan: devices like the E160 are multi-mode. Initially they pretend to be a small CD-ROM, but by sending commands to them, can be switched into modem modes00:07
histoLucaS05: also was apache ever working?00:07
TJ-raspberrypifan: usb_modeswtich is the package that handles that00:07
raspberrypifancan that be disabled just to see what hhappens?00:07
historaspberrypifan: How are you shutting it down if it locks?00:07
barnexhisto: well, that may be, I still would like to become used to uefi more, since it's becoming wide-spread00:07
LucaS05yes it is00:07
histoLucaS05: Has it worked previously?00:08
LucaS05yes, i was working like an hour ago00:08
histoLucaS05: pastebin your /etc/apache2/ports.conf00:09
TJ-raspberrypifan: If the package usb-modeswitch is installed, there should be a "/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf" which contains an option "DisableSwitching=..." which you can set to '1' - there's also an "EnableLogging=..." option that may be useful if it turns out usb_modeswitch is the issue00:09
raspberrypifani will look into trying that00:10
histoLucaS05: anything in iptables -L00:11

barnexthat's correct03:13

roastedhisto: nevermind. It's a mini display port. I think my hdmi adapter just doesn't support audio (evidently you have to buy one specifically with audio support to have, you guessed it, audio support)03:15
roastedI didn't know there was a difference, but I also never tried to push hdmi audio over one of these.03:15
histosd1074: yeah that would work they only way the id would change is if the bus changed03:18
sd1074histo, I thought it wouldn't break even the bus is changed. So this ID includes a bus ID somewhere? by-id/ata-ST3000DM001-1CH166_FO3KD1F-part103:22
histosd1074: ata03:34
histosd1074: for your case you will be fine using it03:35

Symmetriahrm, heh, third reboot, third time ubuntu has changed a random NIC name to renameXX *confused*04:29
SamwiseGamgeeI got a problem with my DNS that #freenode could not help me with, may be it's too late at night, cause I saw no experts in that channel just now04:31
squirtsmacintoshSymmetria: 'grep -R /etc/* renameXX'  or add -P and write a regex for renameXX04:31
SamwiseGamgeeI have been using the Freenode IRC Server for a couple years now with Windows XP and with Kubuntu and Xubuntu without any problems, but today, for the first time, my current OS, Xubuntu 14.04, told me the Freenode IRC Server is unknown04:31
SamwiseGamgeeI had tried accessing it about an hour ago, circa 22h00 Central Time, this Tuesday night, using Mozilla Firefox at http://webchat.freenode.net04:32
SamwiseGamgeeSo, I tried accessing the same server with XChat IRC and I got the same result: server is unknown.  That was the first time I tried XChat, because I only installed Xubuntu a few days ago.04:32
ObrienDaveSamwiseGamgee, I've been here for hours, no problems04:32
SamwiseGamgeeThe weird thing is I had no problems accessing other websites using Firefox, like the Weather Network and Google.  It was only the Freenode webchat website that I could not access.04:32
Symmetriasamwise you having any other DNS problems?04:32
ObrienDaveusing xchat04:33
=== user__ is now known as Snafu777
Symmetriaits almost certainly not an xchat problem, it sounds like you're having DNS/host resolution problems04:33
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee agree ^^^04:33
ubottuTo set up a Domain Name Service see the !serverguide - https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/C/dns.html04:33
Symmetriado a host irc.freenode.net from a prompt and see if it resolves there04:33
SamwiseGamgeeSo I used a Linux channel in PyChess on the FICS server to get help, and they told me to use the following commands on my command konsole to change my dns servers:04:33
SamwiseGamgeenano /etc/resolv.conf nameserver
Symmetriaif you do that it will get overwritten on next reboot04:34
SamwiseGamgeeWhile I was executing those commands I noticed the following:04:34
SamwiseGamgeeI know....I got nameserver .....then below that ....search mts.net04:34
Symmetriayou need to check the dns-nameservers line in /etc/interfaces to set nameservers on modern systems04:35
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee reassigning dns is not a trivial issue.  I'd test a lot more before undertaking that step04:35
Symmetriamanually editing resolv.conf is gonna break04:35
squirtsmacintoshhisto: just created an array with 'mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=0 --raid-devices=2 --chunk=512 /dev/sda /dev/sdb' and did a next,next,next install and got the error 'grub_install /dev/sda' failed04:35
SamwiseGamgeeBut Xubuntu succesfully modified that /etc/resolv.conf file to ., and after that I was able to access the webchat.freenode.net server both with Firefox and with XChat.04:35
Symmetriaand I agree with cfhowlett04:35
Symmetriadont screw with your dns unless you know what you're doing :)04:35
SamwiseGamgeeUnfortunately, the FICS chess guys told me the changes to that /etc/resolv.conf file are only temporary, and when I reboot the same problem will return.04:35
SamwiseGamgeeSo I logged into Freenode IRC here, and #ubuntuforums told me I have a DNS problem that needs to be resolved.04:35
Ben64SamwiseGamgee: are you not reading the replies that people are telling you?04:36
SamwiseGamgeeCharles asked me if my dnsmasq is running, so I executed this command:  sudo service dnsmasq status.....I got this result......dnsmasq: unrecognized service04:36
SamwiseGamgeeyes I am04:36
Symmetriasam if you wanna hard set your dns to something that will last beyond reboot04:36
SamwiseGamgeeCharles said  resolv.conf gets regenerated on boot, so I need to determine why it's assigning that IP address as my dns.04:36
Symmetriayou can insert a line that says dns-nameservers into /etc/network/interfaces04:36
Symmetriado NOT replace the whole interfaces file04:37
Ben64or set up the dns in whichever network manager you have04:37
histoSamwiseGamgee: it's getting that nameserver from your router04:38
Symmetriaok :) this is where I bail out I aint touched any of the GUI network managers or anything outside of CLI on a Linux system in more years than I can count04:38

Brycei am using a cd04:49
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee reset your DNS to defaults unless you have a very compelling reason to muck about with it?04:49
SamwiseGamgeeShould I just try rebooting my OS now, to see if the problem returns?04:50
cfhowlettBryce ... CD?  what?  14.04 is too large to fit on a CD.  clarify04:50
SamwiseGamgeeI never had any problems with my DNS for years, until today04:50
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee all the more reason to approach reassigning DNS with extreme caution04:51

SamwiseGamgeeI have been using the same DNS since 2008 without any problems, using Windows, Kubuntu, and now Xubuntu04:51
cfhowlettBryce DVD is not CD.  anyway.  DID YOU VERIFY?04:51
SamwiseGamgeeAnd did you notice that the DNS problem was only affecting Freenode, and nothing else?04:51
BryceSorry, no. Let me do that.04:52
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee for future use ... http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/04:52
SamwiseGamgeeWhy do I need to reset my DNS?  I think the changes I made were just temporary.  When I reboot, doesn't the DNS return back to how it was before?04:53
cfhowlettSamwiseGamgee nope.  that's why you don't muck about unless you know what you're doing with it.04:53
ObrienDaveif it works, don't try to fix it04:54

pds_svetlana can you check the direct chat , cause the regular one is quite cluttered08:21
svetlanaSTMelon: that's a biased statement I believe, but your call. if it's not maintained, it might need to go from ubuntu repos; other than that, this channel probably is not concerned. (the client works and I've not seen pending patches to it which are not accepted, not to mention security issues.)08:22
STMelonwell look at the last time xchat has even been updated, it's not biased. IT'S FACT....08:22
svetlanapds_, I see the pastebin, but your area might be outside of my depth. please explain what you pasted.08:22

calziferhi, i have installed my system in english (us) but in unity added german and japanese. US/English is used as default language and regional format is set to germany but chrome/ium can't display japanese characters in bookmarks. How can I fix that?09:44
Buzzercalzifer: can you try running locale -a in a terminal? What does it output?09:50
calziferBuzzer: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7769575/09:51
Buzzercalzifer: Okay, so the locales are properly installed. Now this is guesswork, but it may be that the websites in question use a Japanese specific encoding like SJIS that the browser has trouble with. Do you have an example of a problematic website? Does bookmarking http://mainichi.jp/ result in the same problem?09:55
calziferyes, even the tab window has problems09:55
calziferi can see the website and read the japanese text's but can't write any japanese characters or see kanji in bookmarks or tabs09:56

ArmageddonHello, I'd like to ask about a way to create customized spins off of 14.04. Remastersys was EOLed and so were most of the applications that I used to use. Any suggestions on ones that work ?09:57

Buzzercalzifer: If the titles display as boxes rather than garbage it may be a font problem, though I wouldn't know what font Chromium would expect that Ubuntu doesn't install by itself when you requested the locale. You could try a shotgun approach of installing a load of Japanese font packages. If it's not the fonts either it looks very much like a Chromium problem, but I have no idea what it could be. You could10:10

LewocoSkwallinux92, Actually the process I want to run is a daemon. Vixie looks good for running a once off but it looks not well suited to keeping a process running indefinitely and restarting it if necessary.12:18
LewocoSkwallinux92, I suppose I could hack together some half-arsed script to try and do it myself but is there something that already exists to do this?12:19
Carogasj13, you need to also set your locales12:19
Carogait seems your system runs en_IN, correct?12:20

svetlanaener2, the links ubottu gave have extra documentation. Can't tell this specific details without reading it all. :)12:25

svetlanaener2, what do you use instead of make? Whatever you use to install the package from sources -- you'll have to write it down in a few files I believe.12:30
ener2nothing, really. I have compiled pyc files in correct directories where they should be placed by package12:30

svetlanaener2: http://www.wefearchange.org/2010/05/from-python-package-to-ubuntu-package.html and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeetingLogs/devweek1001/PyAppsPkgs and the link in the latter. -- Otherwise try something minimal from http://developer.ubuntu.com/packaging/html/ and the like and try to skip the language-specific steps.12:40

MotherMGAAnyone know how to set the default bluetooth audio profile in 14.04? I'm having two problems. 1) pulseaudio isn't loading the module-bluetooth-discover, so it never registers my headphones and then 2) once I load it with `pacmd load-module module-bluetooth-discover` it doesn't register an audio profile. blueman-manager allows me to correct this, but not the standard sound settings.  Any ideas?13:47

ewooyBeldar: as I said, fdisk detects it, this is what is there: pastebin.com/j6DXLe6k15:55
Beldarewooy, Is there a sda, or has the HD flipped to show as sdb with a usb boot of ubuntu?15:56

Beldarewooy, Have you set the bios to a legacy install?15:58
phoenixbyrdHi, I made an .sh file, I'm trying to get it to run instead of opening in a text editor when I click on the file. It's set as executable.15:58
ewooybeldar: I think I did, but I'm not sure. Will check just a minute15:58
geniiphoenixbyrd: Is the first line in the file something like:  #!/bin/bash15:59
phoenixbyrdno, I'll add that15:59
ewooyBeldar: UEFI boot is enabled, should I disable it?15:59
Beldarewooy, I think you just need to get the gpt remnants out if the partition tables sdb shows as having this issue. http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/wipegpt.html16:00
ewooyBeldar: thanks, I'll check it out16:00
Beldarewooy, You have a msdos install on sdb it looks like, I'm not really up on the bios settings.16:01

kobbbHi there. Does anyone know how to only do security updates from apt-get ?16:36
wblankenshipDuring `apt-get install` it tries to start by calling the init.d script and errors saying "invoke-rc.d: unknown init.d script, /etc/init.d/couchdb not found"16:36
wblankenshipcn28h_, so it appears it expects it to have been created during install16:37
cn28h_oh I see, so *it* tried calling it ;p16:37
wblankenshipYes, and I verified the file is indeed missing, it isn't a permissions issue.16:38
wblankenshipIt looks like everything else is fine, but I'm not a sysadmin so there could be yaks hiding in the dark voids between log statements that I'm missing.16:38
OerHeksNeozonz, just use "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade"  not "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"16:39
cn28h_wblankenship: still might be worth checking if there is a conf file in /etc/init for it, if there is you can always create a link for it to /lib/init/upstart-job16:40
cn28h_you could create the link before installing the package .. which is kind of a hack of course16:41

rolliесть русские то16:48
cokegenNeozonz, I was searching a ton on this ... found nothing usable16:48

cn28h_wblankenship: magic might be a little bit of a stretch ;p but yes, taht's basically what it does.  It uses the name of the init.d script to decide which upstart conf to use and then issues t he appropriate upstart command that corresponds to the init.d command that was passed17:14

hethBashing-om, I don't have remote access to the box :( I did reinstall grub with grub-install /dev/sda and it installed successfully. but didn't boot afterwards. can it be something with UEFI?21:27

Bashing-omheth: If that Motherboard is UEFI capable, sure ! -> GPT partitioning, and MBR is out the window .21:28

adamcunningtonOerHeks: ah, i need to be able to read bluray too, what do i need for that?21:30

skfaxjack-: I was able to manually downgrade by using apt-get download + forcing dpkg21:31

skfaxBut it sort of messes with the packaging database, since there's tons of dependencies21:31

Bashing-omheth: Then MBR - installing to the root of the hard drive, no workie. The boot code then must be installed to a EFI partition. That is all I know of that situation. If others can not advise better, well, we can struggle through getting grub installed properly, but I do not have UEFI, and to thus time I have not encountered it directly - so will be a struggle on my part too.21:32
adamcunningtonOerHeks: cheers21:32
OerHeksadamcunnington, but not all blue ray discs will play, same as some dcd's do not play too21:32
adamcunningtonOerHeks: why is that? due to propietary formats?21:33
OerHeksi am not sure about todays limits, but there were changes in coding, yes21:34
hethBashing-om, I did make a BIOS partition for EFI it said that it must be 1MB; I made it automatically. so if it's GPT, GRUB cannot be installed to the /dev/sda ?21:34
Bashing-omheth: Correct, in that with GPT partitioning, grub is to be installed onto the EFI partition. Not sure at all how the server install works, desk top install, installing in UEFI mode the installer does pick up and install correctly to the EFI partition.21:36
maxxd_hi, after new drivers in my ubuntu 12.04.4 the laptop's touchpad doesn't work. please help me21:37
rswhey, is there a guide/walkthrough/tutorial/etc for connecting to the internet using the ip command line tool?21:37
hethBashing-om, maybe I should make a separate /boot partition for grub then..21:39
Bashing-omheth: Don't think that will help in this instance. We are looking at getting the correct boot code installed correctly on the correct partition. Legacy booting ? -> (parted -l)->1 2048s 4095s 2048s bios_grub <- .. is your output similar to this ?21:41
hethBashing-om, I have no idea sadly. the machine is in the office and it can't boot as I said heh. I can check tomorrow21:44
hethBashing-om, what should it say?21:44
hethparted -l?21:44
Bashing-omheth: Background info: There now are two versions of grub, grub-pc (BIOS boot) and grub-efi (UEFI boot). So grub is still used with both BIOS and UEFI boot but it installs differently as the two ways to boot are different. To comolicate matters more, there are 2 ways to install for GPT partitioning.21:46
hethBashing-om, ah, good, what are they?21:47
Bashing-omheth: Run -> sudo parted -l <- depending on "  bios_grub  " flag as to what the booting is to be.21:48
hethBashing-om, I see. I'll do that tomorrow.  what are the options? and how can I install efi or pc grub to try which will work ?21:50

specsmuI have a question:  Is there any way to get ubuntu to install on a whole disk WITHOUT trying to add a partition table?21:58
specsmuI'm trying to install on a guest VM.  the volumes are LVM, I don't need nor want partitions on them.21:58
specsmuBut I can't figure out how to get Ubuntu to stop insisting.  It's annoying.21:58
torjvwhat wm are you using?21:59
specsmuit blocks the install, too.  the OS doesn't recognize the added partitions.21:59
rustyraptorI am having a problem logging in with the display manager21:59
torjvspecsmu what wm are you using?22:00
specsmuwm?  I don't understand.  I'm using the server CD, Xen host.22:01
Bashing-omheth: Maybe; in a Full Change Root environment -> apt-get install --reinstall grub-efi-amd64 <- If you WERE running AMD-64, as it is ATOM, not at all sure !22:01
torjvsorry, vm, virtual machine ;)22:01
rustyraptorI recently installed the nvidia non-free drivers. That leads me to think it's xorg22:01
specsmuahh.  xen 4.3, opensuse 13.1.22:01
hethBashing-om, it is AMD6422:02
specsmuI create an LVM volume for root, and one for swap.  but when I try to install, it insists on partitioning xvda1 and xvda2.22:02
hethBashing-om, okay and how to do grub pc?22:02
torjvspecsmu sorry then I'm no help, I only know Windows VM's..22:02
Bashing-omheth: Worth a shot, will do nothing that can not be undone. Let's say you are booting legacy, so make sure "secure boot" is disabled.22:03
specsmunp...  but surely there must be a way of telling Ubuntu "use the whole disk, I don't care about partitioning"22:03
Bashing-omheth: Are you comfortable doing a Change Root ?22:03
hethBashing-om, there is no such thing as secure boot.. only UEFI option is on or off22:03
hethBashing-om, what is that?22:03
torjvspecsmu, just to be a fool for asking, "the whole disk", is it the virtual disk or your real HD?22:04
specsmuthe virtual disk.22:04
Bashing-omheth: OK, that is where you boot up from a diffent OS ( say a liveDVD ) and change into the actual install. No big deal, workie great last long time, but there are LOTs of mounting to be done.22:05
specsmuI already have everything configured exactly how I want, and it's exposed to the VM.22:05
specsmubut the VM won't cooperate and allow me to write directly to the disk without trying to partition it.22:05
specsmuer, the installer22:05
hethBashing-om, yes I've done that. /proc /sys /dev bind mount; I also think the rescue boot option does it by default tho22:05
torjvspecsmu is the virtual disk "virgin"? then you have to partition it.22:05
Bashing-omheth: There is such a utility as "boot-repair" that stands a good chance of fixing your issue.22:06
specsmuit's virgin, by design.  I don't want to partition it - I want to just write directly to it and let xen take care of the booting, etc.22:06
specsmubut I would settle for it letting me boot instead of just saying "I can't notify the OS, you're on your own".22:06
apeoidI've installed nautilus-open-terminal package to right-click open a terminal inside any file browser window... but it opens the wrong terminal emulator.  how can I see/edit the nautilus-open-terminal configuration?22:07

Bashing-omheth: lemme hunt it up ( boot-repair) .. brb.22:07

adamcunningtonapparently, the "install faac" could have been done with medibuntu but it's no longer maintained and the ubuntu page mentions libdvdcss instead. Can anyone advise?22:19

Bashing-omheth: From my notes: "The bios_grub only needs to be 1 or 2MB but must be unformatted." And I have seen recommendations of 250 MB.22:23
adamcunningtonBen64: so you need to install faac separately, then re-compile (through reinstallation)22:23
adamcunningtonBen64: well, 20 forum posts say this is the solution22:23
adamcunningtonBen64: but i'm just interested in fixing my problem. What do I need to do?22:23

Bashing-omheth: Yep, 2 manners of install for EFI, and we have to match the method to how grub expects to boot.22:26
adamcunningtonI don't even know what i need to do though, compile what? what does that mean in this context22:26
adamcunningtonsurely i just need to get mencoder to recognise an installed libfaac22:26
hethBashing-om, you said 2048s 4096s, which is what?22:26
Ben64adamcunnington: if the binary package in the repositories doesn't have it, then it doesn't have it. it will never recognize something it is not compiled with22:27
adamcunningtonBen64: what binary package? libfaac?22:27
Ben64adamcunnington: mplayer22:27
adamcunningtonBen64: so in theory i just need to compile mencoder with libfaac?22:28
adamcunningtonBen64: which entails what? downloading libfaac from somewhere and compiling it with mencoder?22:28
JordanJ2Hi, Does Ubuntu 14.04 support a install with Secure Boot and UEFI both on?22:28
Ben64thats a better question for #mplayer or #mplayer2 but why not just use a better codec or use the faac command line?22:28
Bashing-omheth: The boot flag is "bios_grub" // 222:29
Bashing-omheth: '2048' is the start of the blocks for the sector, and 4096 is the size of those sectorrs ( efi must be size 4096 ).22:30
hethBashing-om, aha I see.22:31
adamcunningtonis avconv better than mencoder? sick of all it's bullshit problems like not including aac codecs :|22:33
Bashing-omheth: As this is GPT partitioning, ya might want to install 'gdisk' to look at the partitioning in detail. -> apt-gt install gdisk , sudo gdisk -l /dev/sda <-.22:33
hethadamcunnington, aac is proptietary closed protocol22:34
adamcunningtonheth: what should i use instead? mp3lame?22:34
daftykinsadamcunnington: keep the talk family friendly please22:35
jack-aac is apple22:35
jack-good quality though...22:35
jack-your choice22:36
adamcunningtondaftykins: my bad22:36
Ben64you can use "faac" on the command line to make aac files, or you can use a better codec22:37
hethBashing-om, ah! I managed to route myself and login to the box :)22:37
Bashing-omheth: Well ! Where there is a will, and a bit if time, there is a way.22:38

hethspecsmu, how can you utilize 3TB then..22:48
jack-with 2 partitions? :P22:48
hethspecsmu, why it's pain?22:48
Bashing-omheth: Lot's I do not know "Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B" the 512 Byte sector size gives me cause for consideration.22:49
hethjack-, good point :) but sometimes that' complication22:49
specsmuused gparted to create GPT partitions22:49
rustyraptorguys help22:49
rustyraptorI am having a problem logging in with the display manager22:49
specsmuthe only trick is you need a small (1M) bios_reserved partition to hold the grub data.22:49
hethspecsmu, I thought so, and I made 1MB for that, but grub isn't booting :)22:50
specsmuI haven't been paying attention, what's your error?22:50
specsmugrub is the worst boot loader out there, except for all the others22:51
rustyraptorI can log in with my guest account but not my main account. I recently switched to the nonfree drivers22:51
hethspecsmu, "[10-7.00:12:33] <heth> hi. I'm having problems with GRUB and 14.04 server x64. althou I install Ubuntu and GRUB, when I reboot there is no bootable device. MB is Atom if that matters; UEFI is disabled; Boots perfect with live CD when I pick Boot from first hdd. Any troubleshooting ideas?"22:51
rustyraptornvidia card22:51
specsmuhave you set the bootable flag on the partition that includes the kernel?22:52
hethspecsmu, what would you recommend if not grub?22:52
gumby_hello all. I have a 3 lcd setup using two nvidia cards and am using ubuntu driver version 304.117-0ubuntu1. I have two of the LCDs setup as screen0 and the second as screen1. When maximizing an application on screen0 it spans across both LCDs, is there a way to make the application maximize only on a single LCD. Specifically, the LCD it is app is already running on22:52
hethspecsmu, I doubt22:52
specsmuheth:  grub.  like I said, except for all the others. :)22:52
hethspecsmu, I don't know what else can chainload windows and work on efi22:52
specsmuheth, I'm being silly.22:53
hethah another zombie process waiting for IO..22:53
specsmuanyway, make sure you've got the boot flag set on one of your partitions.22:53
hethspecsmu, also: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=9ejtpPUB22:54
THE_GFR|WORKhey everyone I have a question, how do I get the Archive Mounter functionality back?22:54
THE_GFR|WORKas seen here http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/mount-archive-file-clicks-ubuntu/22:54
daftykinsgumby_: sounds like you're using the nvidia tech to make two screens be one, so no - you're using a setup that essentially lies to the OS :)22:54
specsmuheth, which partition holds your /boot22:54
leeyaado you think that any of this output could indicate a problem: http://oi58.tinypic.com/15f4q6a.jpg i got it from a crashed vm.22:55
specsmutoggle the boot flag on that.  It's not set.22:55
hethspecsmu the /22:55
specsmuok, toggle the boot flag on it.22:55
hethspecsmu, in my case thats sda222:55
specsmuit is separate from the bios_reserved flag and should be set.22:55
hethI believe so yes22:55
specsmuok then... do it.  chop chop. :)22:55
=== Olivier| is now known as Olivier
Ben64specsmu: boot flag is not required...22:56
gumby_daftykins: makes sense.  Odd thing is, when I use two LCDs for Screen0 with different resolutions I don't have the issue.  When I use two LCDs for Screen0 with different resolutions its not a problem22:56
rustyraptorUmm well I am leaving now. I would appreciate it if you guys would review my problem on the forums I have gotten no reply yet.22:56
rustyraptorI understand the channel is a bit busy today.22:56
specsmuBen64:  usually when I see "no bootable partitions" that's what I look for.22:56
daftykinsgumby_: that makes sense since there's an edge to map to22:57
hethspecsmu, I always thought that boot flags doesn't matter for linux22:57
hethspecsmu, will this do it? sudo sfdisk -A2 /dev/sda22:57
Ben64heth: does grub show up at all?22:57
hethBen64, no22:57
daftykinsgumby_: here's a crazy idea, if you could manually set the second matching screen to one row of pixels less, it wouldn't be able to maximise due to not fitting - no idea if that's possible mind you :D22:57
specsmuthey matter to the bios.  sometimes.22:57
Ben64then its not a boot flag problem, grub probably isn't installed22:58
gumby_daftykins: may be a bandaid.  Will think about how to give that a try22:58
Ben64heth: i'd suggest running boot-repair from the livecd, and pastebin the info here22:58
hethBen64, I'm totally sure it is, I'm not sure it's properly installed :)22:58
=== [HOLANDA]David is now known as David_LoKo
hethBen64, I didn't find a package for 14.0422:59
specsmuthings learned from doing this for a long time:  after typing "shutdown -h now", wait three seconds and double check the hostname.22:59
hethspecsmu, the problem with setting the boot dlag is, I cannot test if it will work, becasue if it did not I can't do anything to log on again (i'm sshed there)23:00
specsmuoh, it's not local?23:00
hethspecsmu, it not at the moment23:00
hethtomorrow I'll be there23:00
specsmuI see.  then basically you're just finding oiut things to try23:00
hethspecsmu, I can try many things but not test them23:01
hethbut, yes.23:01
specsmuI got my VM installed.  it partitioned the virtual disk.  I don't like that, but it is what it is.23:01
Ben64heth: i'd almost guarantee its a problem with grub's install23:01
hethBen64, I know. but what problem, and what to do?23:01
Ben64heth: probably reinstall. not sure whats wrong now23:02
specsmuheth:  this might work better if you're actually at the machine while you're here, right now it's all just conjecture.23:02
hethspecsmu, you don't have a choice VMs are unaware of a blockdevices over file system over block device23:02
specsmuwe give you things to try, and I'm sure you write them down and are appreciative, but you can't try them... so we're just kinda blowing smoke.23:02
hethspecsmu, the best way to solve a problem is to understand it :)23:03
specsmuheth: it knows it's a virtual device...  but I'd be happy with a "install to whole disk and full speed ahead" option.23:03
specsmumaybe a checkbox "this is a VM, I've already taken care of everything, I just want you to install."23:03
hethspecsmu, and you will want to recover data at some point.. then what? :)23:03
specsmuheth:  I created the volumes as an LVM. Each partition is its own LVM.  So partitioning that is nonsensical.23:04
Bashing-omheth: ;; Ben64 ;; This concerns me, but I do now want to mislead "Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT. , Logical sector size: 512 bytes" // Would that not slow a server down ? do we not want th sector size to be 4096 ? as we do have GPT partitioning ? -- re-install ??23:04
hethspecsmu, Ben64, Bashing-om: do you have any idea how to install boot-repair on 14.04?23:04
specsmuI'm guessing apt-get something.   What, is the more complex question.23:05
hethspecsmu, your OS on top of the VM is unaware of that23:05
Bashing-omheth: Boot-repair, I gave you my best shot at installing it.23:05
hethspecsmu, I found out there are packages for 13.10 but not for 14.0423:05
specsmuheth: the OS should be unaware of it, and the installer in the VM *should*& be aware of it, that's my point. :)23:06
hethspecsmu, that is not possible I'm afraid :)23:06
specsmu"This is a VM.  I've taken care of the partitioning, the filesystem creation, just install onto the filesystem and we're done here."23:06
specsmuno, it's possible, just not given the current OS. :)23:06
hethspecsmu I believe that no OS can be VM aware if the VM is not friendly. and I don't know of OS that does, but maybe there are some23:07
specsmuheth:  It can be VM aware if you can tell it "You're a VM"23:07
